Presented as a part of a public service announcement on the radio for the local Pittsburgh-area Allegheny County Health Department, a new term has been coined for our times: "unvaccinated traveler." Posing an apparent new health concern, who exactly are these unvaccinated travelers?
With a bit of thought and experience with the liberal language-origami game, it is likely that our unvaccinated travelers are in reality our southern border illegal alien guests. Coincidentally, not reported in the Democrat propaganda media are the third-world diseases being brought to this country by the influx of unvaccinated travelers...dengue, swine flu, TB, scabies, and measles, among many others, and as an added bonus a proliferation of a once-rare enterovirus causing polio-like symptoms, paralysis, and even death to children around the country.
Border patrol agents, those working with the unvaccinated travelers and their families, as well as those who come into contact with these travelers have contracted these diseases, with the risk of further spreading the diseases in their own communities. Additionally, our unvaccinated travelers may not show symptoms of these third-world diseases, but still be carriers, ensuring a robust distribution throughout our country.
According to Mayor Bill de Blasio and his ilk, who are now demanding forced measles vaccinations due to an outbreak in New York, the obvious problem is a handful of American citizens who may not have been vaccinated, not the multiple thousands of unvaccinated third-world illegals pouring into all parts of our country.
The unvaccinated travelers are just the newest slice of the illegal alien pie. Kick-started by former President Barack Obama, thousands have poured and continue to pour over our southern border, to obtain their free share of Americans’ dreams. Higher taxes for schools, hospitals, and other social services; higher unemployment; and reduced wages, to name a few, are the outcomes for America's citizens. Importing poverty, diseases, and other social stressors into America appears to be the agenda du jour of the Democrat party.
Obviously, those with bad intentions or ill will for America would never think to use this open border avenue to penetrate our ironclad homeland security <sarcasm off>. Of course, there is an increased potential for terrorists to penetrate the homeland security border sieve and facilitate violence, like mass shootings, explosive or dirty bombs, ad infinitum, not to mention the more pedestrian lawlessness of the uninvited gang members and other murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and drunk drivers.
From a humanitarian perspective, who would deny the social niceties we enjoy here in our country? Even basic sanitation is an upgrade for many who enter the country illegally. But why should we unfairly limit access to our country to those who can walk or drive across the border? Perhaps we should provide taxpayer-funded airfare or luxury liner boat transportation to our shores from all around the world.
Unfortunately, our social financial buffering capacity is finite. A quote comes to mind attributable to Margaret Thatcher: "the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money to spend." If we kill the American goose that lays the golden eggs, the goose that provides financial, humanitarian, medical, and military assistance across the world, all the while providing for its own citizens, we will eventually suffer an equal outcome, and those who rely upon us will be left without. Based on the Democrats statements, a degraded condition for Americans – equal outcome with other less well-off countries – appears to be pleasing to them. After all, the Democrat hate-America-first crowd has determined that we are the problem around the globe anyway.
Contemplate that one day, you or your progeny may find yourselves planning to sneak over the border to Mexico to improve your life experience. The moral to the Allegheny County Health Department's radio announcement is clear: make sure that you and your kids are vaccinated, so that you do not become the unvaccinated traveler in some future Mexican town's public service announcement.
