#156: Exotic species.

1111comics - 00156 - exotic species

Did you know the United States is preparing to build an enormous wall to separate itself from Mexico and make it harder for illegal immigrants to cross the border?

We’re all birds. Don’t be a turkey.

As part of 1111′s A-Z of Creatures. Q is for Quetzal. Quetzals are native to Mexico, Central and South America. The male quetzal has brilliant green and red plumage to attract females.

Except for the Quetzal all the birds in the above comic can be found in the United States. In order of appearance: American Robin, Domestic (Feral) Pigeon, Rusty Blackbird, Northern Mockingbird, Brown Pelican, Florida Scrub Jay, American Swallow, Burrowing Owl, Osprey, Quetzal, Wild Turkey, Bald Eagle.

        There are no coincidences.

    Evidently 1111 Comics supports the abolition of sovereign nations for a world state. The problem with the abolition of sovereign nations in order to establish a world state is that if you don’t like the laws in the place you are living, a world state leaves you with nowhere left that you can move to. If people do not assimilate into that system which made the U.S. a desirable place to move to then all they’re really going to end up doing is bringing all the reasons why their own country was shitty with them and making the U.S. just as shitty as the dump they came from. And we know that the U.S. is a desirable place to move to and that their native country is shitty based on the evidence of their desire to move here in droves with no corresponding desire on our part to move over there.

      You need to stop jumping to conclusions. This comic is about the ridiculous expense of your taxes being used to build a wall that in the end may achieve very little to nothing. There are many different options available to fix the problem of refugees from another country without a wall. Countries that built walls have suffered greatly: East Germany, Israel, etc. This comic is designed to make you think. I am not here to argue what is right or wrong, just to say that you don’t understand the comic.

        Correlation is not causation. Holland literally wouldn’t exist without walls.

          Holland was keeping out the ocean.

            And we’re trying to keep out more drugs and gangs. Your point is?

          • 1111

            The drug industry is always going to have more money to get drugs into the US, than the US will have to fix the problem. A war on drugs is an endless and costly endeavor. I think you and I are going to have to agree to disagree because this conversation is an endless and costly on time endeavor as well. Peace out :)

      This is exactly how we feel when your army goes over our wall and try to assimiltate us into your system…just my own opinion..

      “they’re really going to end up doing is bringing all the reasons why
      their own country was shitty with them and making the U.S. just as
      shitty as the dump they came from.”

      You mean like the English, French, Irish, Italians, Spaniards, Germans that came here and took out the native Americans land? Yeah I agree with you I think every one not born a native American should leave their land. Or what ever the natives called it before it got invaded and stolen from them. This is just history repeating itself and you Ben need to step back and learn how you got to call this Land the USA. Once half this country belonged to Mexico actually it didnt belong to anyone greedy people declared something that wasn’t theirs their own. Greedy, weak, power hungry foreigners.
