Second Thoughts About Travelling to the U.S.

Although the riding season north of the 49th Parallel, the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River is still some two months away (I'm not including the area of the country occupied by Bondo and the Master of Darkness), I've been thinking about whether I would ride across the Canadian border with the Excited States this spring or summer, given what's been happening there.

There was an interesting piece in the newspaper a few days ago by a Canadian writer (his name escapes me and I can't find the article) born in the U.S and now holds dual citizenship who cancelled his book tour to Arizona because he felt that by going he'd be betraying other writers from the seven countries on the "hit list" created by the executive order issued by the narcissistic, thin-skinned, misogynist, racist, ill-tempered, vengeful bully who occupies the Oval Office in Washington who are barred from entering that country.

I know that a federal judge in Seattle has temporarily enjoined the INS from enforcing that executive order but nevertheless the ban on entry (as Rudy Giuliani, the right hand man to the individual who now sleeps in the White House admitted in a television interview) was clearly designed to keep Muslims out of the country--just not the Muslims from the countries where that crotch grabbing creature with the terrible orange haired comb-over has business interests.

Targeting people by reason only of their race or religion is abhorrent--just ask the Japanese who were interned during the second world war or the European Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their sympathizers or the Tutsi people during the Rwandan uprising or the Armenians who had been in Turkey in the early 1900's--so I wonder whether crossing that border on a motorcycle ride when knowing others who ride may well be banned because of their religion and place of birth is the right thing to do in the circumstances.

There are plenty of places for pretty good riding here in Canada, so unless there is some compelling reason to go into the Excited States, I'm not so sure I'll be riding in Ohio and Pennsylvania this summer.
