The statue of liberty yearning to breathe free

As I see the xenophobia like some homes in small towns "Keep Out" and
"Beware of dog!" Why is that? It's something stupid but the point is
with Trump he is trying to run America like a small town.
Small towns make nothing so they have nothing!

And so America is looking to go down to their level.
Stupid in being afraid of others not from here over there being just like
or better off than we are walking around with cell phones and etc!

What is the war time view anyway we are not with war with much!
There is ISIS but really it's seen as a local problem.
Sort of like the KKK if they where to pop up more in Canada / Mexico
etc. Other countries would be upset over them also!
More people died from the KKK than terrorist anyway!
Well there is too much stupid out there. Paranoia is stupid!

"This KKK Guy Tried to Build an X-Ray Weapon To Kill Muslims 
and Obama, Feds Say."

"Dr. Fred Mettler, the US representative on the United Nations' Scientific
Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation, was unfamiliar with the specifics
of Crawford's plans but said it's unlikely such a device could work.
Radiation can be narrowly beamed, as it is in some cancer treatments,
but the accelerators require huge amounts of electricity, are not easily
portable and any target would have to remain still for a long time."

Well stupid is stupid without remembering a good point.
"No man is an island. No one is self-sufficient; everyone relies on others."
This saying comes from a sermon by the seventeenth-century English author
John Donne.

~~~~~What is the quote on the statue of liberty?
There are several phrases associated with the Statue of Liberty, but the most recognizable is “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This quote comes from Emma Lazarus’ sonnet, New Colossus, which she wrote for a fundraiser auction to raise money for the pedestal upon which the Statue of Liberty now sits. The poem did not receive much recognition and was quite forgotten after the auction.

In the early 1900s and after Lazarus’ death, one of her friends began a campaign to memorialize Lazarus and her New Colossus sonnet. The effort was a success, and a plaque with the poem’s text was mounted inside the pedestal of the statute.

Statue of Liberty Poem
Also known as the Statue of Liberty poem, New Colossus and its famous last lines have become part of American history. Here is the sonnet in its entirety:
New Colossus
statue of liberty poem
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
