Illusion is the new reality. Just like Jayson Blair turned fantasy into New York Times
articles...politicians and special interests are about to morph the illegal
into the legal. There is a move afoot, in that “other America” (called
the Nation’s capital), to turn a nightmare into a dream. Two pending
pieces of legislation, the AgJobs bill (S. 1645) and the Dream Act (S. 1545),
if enacted, will make about as much sense as naming an airline in honor of
Mohammad Atta. Should it surprise you that the Traitor Times supports both bills?
In an America where there are over 1 million abortions per year, over 25,000
“gender reassignment surgeries” and human cloning is all but done...it’s
easy to be deluded that we are the masters of our universe. What the
heck...if you can make a woman into a man why not make an illegal into a
legal. Don’t like the reality...just play God and change the rules.
Perhaps because an idea is so wrong the Times adopts it as being right...as
in “A simple crackdown aimed at sending all illegal immigrants back where
they came from would not work.” Why not? Because the Times
believes that punishing illegal activity will “simply drive people without
proper documentation deeper into the shadows, where they would...be afraid
to report crimes, send their children to school or seek treatment when they
had infectious diseases.”
Oh, I get the Upper West Side logic. Illegals, who now commit a disproportionately
high percentage of national crime, won’t report those crimes until they are
legal. And, God forbid that we might make illegals uncomfortable about
depleting the national treasury. There are already 8 to 10 million
illegals using every ounce of American hospitality they can grab. Making
them “legals” would only open the floodgates for the “special interest” organizations
to litigate the last cent of perks out of you...the taxpaying citizen.
More about this in a bit.
The editorial pages of the NYT are laughable in their contempt for
mainstream America...it’s the The Turner Diaries wearing Hush Puppies.
Even more laughable is the advice they give to a President that they loathe.
Step one...take the least mainstream position (let’s raise taxes).
Step two...destroy you for actually listening to them (read my lips).
So Bush 43 should remember Bush 41 when the Times urges that, “To
win support in Congress, Mr. Bush is going to have to be specific enough
to let lawmakers know that he is willing to take some of the heat....”
Don’t trust those lips.
Senate bill 1645, the AgJobs bill, according to an organized labor “non-profit”
shill (The Equal Justice Center or EJC), has two basic components: (1) program
for undocumented agricultural workers to first gain temporary resident status
and then subsequently earn permanent resident immigration status and (2)
... make the program easier for employers to use, while strengthening workers’
remedies against abuse.
During step one of the bill an illegal has to work at least 100 days during
any 12 months of an 18 month period. In step two, “The worker must
perform at least 360 work days of agricultural employment in the U.S. during
the 6 year period ending August 31, 2009.” Glad to see that we are
not overtaxing the illegals' capacity to work. What’s really soothing
to the taxpayer is that under this bill an illegal has to work less, in total,
than a citizen does just to pay their taxes. Does this mean that after
working a minimal amount per year, the illegal and his extended family will
be living out of the taxpayers’ pocket?
The EJC strongly supports the AgJobs bill...and why shouldn’t they?
EJC is a non-profit (non-taxpaying) legal aid front for organized labor.
Their mission... “Legal services provided by EJC include legal representation
in administrative and judicial forums, public education, support for organizing
efforts by communities and working people, policy advocacy, and community
empowerment campaigns that increase client communities’ capacity to effectively
advance their legal rights.” Bingo...organized labor is salivating
over the prospect of co-opting 8 to 10 million pieces of new meat.
And it doesn’t end there...once the flood gates are opened, the special interest
litigators will be clogging the legal system to insure that the benefits
of your tax dollars are spent to enrich formerly “illegal” lifestyles and
the union dues’ coffers.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse...along comes the Development
Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act of 2003 (S. 1545), laughingly known
as the DREAM Act. This act, according to the Federation for American
Immigration Reform (FAIR), “will place American citizens in direct competition
with illegal aliens for scarce slots in freshmen classes at state colleges
and universities while awarding the illegal alien students with an amnesty.”
FAIR's Executive Director, Dan Stein, charges that, “This bill is a crass
political calculation aimed at selling an amnesty disguised as an educational
The “DREAM Act” actually places legal aliens and taxpaying citizens at an
economic disadvantage to illegals for precious slots to state funded institutions
of higher education. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) dreamt up this nightmare,
but if you travel to his website...you won’t find any mention of it.
Hey...come on...if Algore can take credit for inventing the internet, can’t
Senator Hatch take responsibility for this nightmare?
But that is the Beltway. If an idea is unpopular with mainstream America,
but the pols have to shove it through for their special interest buddies,
they just create a mishmash of legislation that deceives and achieves.
In order to skin the public alive with blanket amnesty for illegals and never
be held to account, the pols will just confuse you with a slew of creeping
cancers like these two bills. And like the tax mess and Social Security
Trust Fund scam, these deceptive webs just keep growing and consuming through
This immigration reform (a.k.a. special interest oriented blanket amnesty)
is classic muddle-headedness...but it is perfect for the liberal interests
and the Traitor Times to use the “moderate” and “compassionate” conservatives
for a cheap thrill and put them away dirty without so much as a goodnight
Anything less than cleaning the illegals out of this country and starting
anew with a rational, controllable and enforced system of immigration is
not only a direct insult to generations of legal citizenry...it is also a
direct threat to the future of this country and what little we have left
of our mainstream middleclass American lifestyle.
