You know that list of 6 countries that our President wants to enforce as the No Enter list for the Muslins? Well, guess what folks, it goes far beyond that group of people or the undesirables from Mexico.
Nope, there’s another list. An unseen and unheard list that I never thought it would happen to my small business.
What small business is that?
It’s an Internet talk radio station, Passionate World Radio Network. I believe that an Internet station is world-wide. Which means that your hosts come from many different countries besides the United States, Mexico, Central, and South America.
It means ACROSS THE POND.
And because these hosts come from ACROSS THE POND, it never occurred to me that they would be BANNED from entering the United States.
WRONG ON ALL ACCOUNTS!
Imagine my surprise when I received an email from a possible candidate who PWRN has been working with for the past six months. In the email, the person wrote, the US government (military police) handcuffed and sent this person back to their country.
No, I’m not going to tell you which country. All you need to know right now is that the word INTERNATIONAL is a very dangerous concept and that bringing someone in who is not a BONA FIDE American might get you in trouble.
Even now, the FBI or the CIA might be investigating me or PWRN for un-American practices.
So, look out! I might be an undesirable.
In the email, this person told me she didn’t like our government and would not do business with anyone in the United States.
I told her that working with PWRN would not compromise her principles further, and that the US government had no say in my Internet station, but now I truly wonder if that’s a true statement or not. In fact, I remember a time when refugees from Germany tried entering different countries as sanctuary, but were turned back from the borders or away from their countries. In the end, these people had to go back to Germany and die in the concentration camps.
Makes you think, huh?
And just on Sunday, I went with my grandchildren to see an airshow that had re-enactments of World War II era complete with Americans, Germans, French, airplanes, bombers, machine guns, rifles, tanks, motorcycles with attached cars, the works.
And you wonder, what the hell is really going on?
Re-enactments of WWII.
Kind of makes you wonder if there be any re-enactments for WWIII.
Yeah, you don’t want to go there. Me neither.
The point is before I digress further is that just because you’re a small business doesn’t mean you want to have some problems with the ban that our president is so eager to get the Supreme Court to vote on. I don’t like being told that my government prevented someone from signing up with my company. I don’t like being told that being handcuffed by our military police left a bad taste in that person’s mouth.
It left a bad taste in my mouth as well.
Does it leave a bad taste in your mouth, too?
If so, do drop me a line, and perhaps we can bring back some sanity to our federal government.
Until next time… ,
