True, perhaps, but arguably unhelpful


The only sense I can make of this is that BuzzFeed News thinks even more illegal immigrants will be needed to maintain or run US golf courses.
Think I’ll pass this one off to Trump, who knows more about this than lil’ ol’ duffer, me. Whatever he says is gonna be racist, though.
Kind’a sorry to have even brought it up; didn’t think BuzzFeed News was racist.

Then again, maybe it’s an allegory about sharing.

    From the BuzzFeed article it states:

    “Yes, there are enough golf courses in the United States for every adult and child asylum-seeker in Tijuana to have their own entire course — and there would still be nearly 9,000 left over.”

    I noticed that the author of the BuzzFeed article also contributes to…..(wait for it)….SocialistWorker.org

    That’s like my favorite graph site: Spurious Correlations, wherein you will learn that the graph of the Number of people who drowned by falling into pools almost directly correlates with Films Nicolas Cage appeared in.

    So each illegal gets his own golf course.

    What’s he supposed to do, farm it? Let chickens graze? Or are we taxpayers supposed to continually replenish the 19th hole and dining room?

    ^^ Ahh, today in correlation, causation, and coincidence.
    Thanks for that, Claire.

    • Clearly, the US needs to drastically cut-back on golf courses
    • Clearly, CAmer needs to send more caravans to rot in Tijuana

    Claire^^^, so are you saying that Nicholas Cage movies cause people to drown themselves? Cuz I could accept that.
