HLC-140 #AmnestyDon Does DACA

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for September 19, 2017 it’s the #AmnestyDon does DACA edition of the show with your hosts Todd Feinburg, Boston/Hartford axis radio talk show host and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week on the show we discuss amnesty – amnesty for “Dreamers” – those poor kids who, through no fault of their own were dragged to America as children and who have known no other country but America. It would be cruel, wouldn’t it, to take out their parents’ sins on the kids? Really, we’re going to just put them on a bus or a plane and send them back to a country they hardly even know? Really?

Yes, you know. This is the new Trump ideology. This is Rick Perry’s heart and Jeb Bush’s love. This is exactly what caused a major section of the Republican Party and otherwise conservative folks to abandon the GOPe. This is giving sympathy to the law breakers and forgetting the once forgotten then briefly remembered and then forgotten again American people who have borne the brunt of the illegal onslaught and who don’t feel an ounce of that sympathy. This is the kind of thing that leads to burning MAGA hats.

Note: we expect gloating from the #NeverTrumpers. We can deal with it. All I can say is that our eyes were always open.

We will then, just to get to a more fun place, talk about “click-bate” ads. What on earth is going on with that? Who are they targeting? How do they make money? Do you ever click through?

Our shower thoughts, of course. Then our hidden gem is the Theme from Once Upon a Time in the West by Ennio Morricone. This one is worth waiting around for, trust me. The movie is terrific too.
