Shoot-Out on the Texas Border, Dueling Photo-Ops. Polls, No Bueno for Biden.

Published on: 3rd March, 2024

Geriatric Gunslingers President Biden and Candidate Trump both claim a little part of the Texas-Mexico border this week for photo-ops to highlight their immigration policies. Former President Trump’s wall can be defeated by a $70 Home Depot grinder. Biden gets wonky with the types of numbers that earn him the respect of border agents.

Polling suggests the Biden Campaign is in trouble. Will heads or hearts prevail when voters go to the polls? Listen to the sound of despair as The Yank contemplates recent political polling.

Also, Coming Soon: We went to see the movie Origin, directed by Ava DuVernay, based on the book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson. Read the book, or see the film, now, to prepare for our next discussion on these two significant works. (Our just tune in for our discussion on them, next time.)
