IDLE AMERICAN

Probably no governor in the history of the Lone Star State has faced double-barreled “standing in line” issues like the current Texas boss, Greg Abbott. Throngs coming from the south want in, and flustered Texans are standing in line for hours to obtain or renew driver’s licenses. Life must be more than tedious for the Gov.

It makes me think of my dear old dad, whose dander was raised when federal troops were sent to stop a long ago influx of immigrants at the Rio Grande. At the time, his “goat was gotten” far worse by Yankees swarming across the Red River to the Lone Star State.

“As usual, the feds got things backwards in tackling immigration problems,” said my dad, who was a rebel to the bone. “They’re guarding the wrong river.”…

Well, better minds than mine are flailing about unsuccessfully on the immigration subject. I’ll decline if ever asked to help. Politicians have to “fake it ‘til they make it.”

My stumbling would be even worse.
