Waiting To Be Processed

                               .                                             .                                                .

On the BBC his last week was a report about refugees in Tunisia. Apparently people in Egypt, Libya, Chad, Niger and some other African countries consider Tunisia to be a bastion of freedom and plenty, or at least marginally better than their own miserable country. So they are flocking by the tens of thousands to Tunisia. The Egyptians had to cross Libya to get there.

Once they arrived, their slave mentality took over, and they meekly submitted to being "processed" at one of the many refugee camps set up by the Tunisian government. Most of the BBC report was interviewing, via translator, the broke, hungry refugees. When asked what they were doing, all responded thusly, "We're waiting to be processed." Said report never mentioned what that entailed. At one point in the report, in the background there was shouting and chanting coming from some Egyptian refugees who complained that the Egyptian military wasn't helping them get back home.

Perhaps in the near future, Americans will be standing around at a FEMA camp, waiting to be processed. I don't think I'll join them.

  1. Heh... I'll be watching those "waiting to be processed" (into what?!) through my binoculars from a covered position. Just for curiosity's sake...

  2. Hi Mayberry,

    I dunno. Maybe processed into Soylent Green. Into the vat with you, citizens!
