So Trump hates immigrants?

Of course, most of our major scientific achievements have been made by people who migrated from somewhere else.  Albert Einstein is a good example.  So is Wernher von Braun, although if you’re not either a history buff or a scientist you might not recognize that name.  Suffice to say that without his early work during WWII (he invented the rockets Hitler used to decimate England), NASA would still be trying to figure out how to get satellites off the ground.

However you probably will remember the Scottish immigrant Alexander Graham Bell without whom we’d have to look at each other all day instead of our iPhones.  And without the previously Italian Enrico Fermi, we wouldn’t have atomic weapons.  Okay, maybe that last one isn’t a good example, but you get my drift.

Anyway, now comes a young lady who is half Cuban: Sabrina Pasterski.  Her genius was first noticed when she was 14.  She’s being hailed as the next Einstein.  For my money, she’s smarter than Einstein because her work on gravity is taking science places that Einstein couldn’t imagine and Stephen Hawking could barely touch.

To lay against that, what has Donald Trump created?  A small pile of money?  Which, by the way, he created out of a large pile of money that was given to him.  Right, that makes him special.  He’s done sooooo much for humanity. — he’s offered to let you worship him if you agree to hate the same people he does.  Like, Ms. Pasterski, for example.  Climb on board his bandwagon if you agree with his politics.  Or look around for a better choice if you realize what your life would be like without the scientific progress made possible by people who came to this country to express their genius.  Think about it.


Be seeing you.

    Actually, I think von Braun developed the designs of Robert A. Goddard, an American.
