A Legislating Conundrum

There continues to be talk about "immigration reform." Can someone please explain to me what the problem IS exactly?

Sorry, but I guess that I just not FUCKING STUPID enough to find the problem here. In order for FARNERS to go to any country in the frigging world, they must have proper LEGAL documentation. If someone goes to a country without that documentation and they get caught doing it, THEY GO TO JAIL AND GET DEPORTED. Or if they happen to get caught doing that in a Muslim country, they get beheaded and burned, then drug through the city streets behind camels and shit.

In the United States, we have laws on the books NOW that say pretty much the same thing. The United States is a representative republic that is a NATION OF LAWS. If our elected representatives passed and signed LAWS that say it is illegal for folks to just come here without documentation, why do we NOT simply ENFORCE THOSE LAWS? (Insert reference to enforcing murder/rape/theft laws here.)

Now when I tell my kid that this is the way a certain thing is, I must follow through, otherwise he will get the idea that my word means nothing. So, when our elected officials pass laws that they do not enforce, what does that tell CRIMINALS? Or what does it tell their constituents? It tells both that the official's words are worth NOTHING. As if we did not know that already.

Here it is in a nutshell, if you want to solve the immigration problem in this country, get the law dogs to round the folks up that are here illegally and ship them home. I am certain that with airline prices in the toilet right now, that would be cheaper than providing a living for all these folks on the public dole, ILLEGALLY.

There is your solution, my invoice is in the mail. STIMULUS!

Please take the time to comment.

Funny how you post this on THIS particular morning. I just got back home from a market in a little town about 20 minutes down the road where Spanish is 75% of what you hear. It's common knowledge that shoplifting is a major problem now, never used to be, and let one single police officer show up and people scatter. The thing about all these people is that they all have lots of very young children, stair steps from babies up, providing the family an "anchor" to be able to stay in our Country. Some are migrant workers here for the summer farming season, others have just taken up year-round residence. While I watched the elderly Americans count change to purchase discount items, I was also watching people who cannot even speak English flip out hundreds for junk. Honestly, TD, I don't get it either. These people are entitled to DOUBLE the benefits a 65 year old American citizen is receiving. What the hell is wrong with this picture?

Quite right - there's no need for 'immigration reform,' just 'immigration enforcement.'

Hey Two Dogs! Roland is agreeing with you on something! Are you on the floor in need of revival?

Well, I guess TD has finally "blocked" my comments. I've tried twice in the last two days to give sage advice/comment/input. Yet none of them appear. Sigh.

Nyuk! My word verification is "ses pol"

Paul Mitchell said...

Christina, YES.

Roland, welcome to the land of the sane.

Coffee Bean, Roland has a child, he shall slowly come around, now.

Andy, HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET THROUGH?!?!?!?! And your turing word was NOT 'ses pol.'

Andy said...

You must have let your guard down TD. And my word WAS "sespol."

You ain't gonna believe this TD, but if I'm lyin' I'm dyin' word verification for this one is "peaves."

Paul Mitchell said...

How are you getting all the cool ones? I did not get one at all because I am the BLOGMASTER.

Immigration reform in Libspeak is "ballot box stuffing". 'Nuff said.

My word verifier is desseoc...code word for what?

ChristinaJade said...

Ok, honestly? I don't really have anything to say, I just wanted to play the verifier game. Mine is "hersau" :)

Skunkfeathers said...

Shall we play a game?

My woid verifier this time is....*drum roll*


I think that's German for "liberal douchebag"

How do I describe my profound dismay at a country that fails to enforce the laws (Immigration) and passed cap and trade? At least 8 Republicans voted for that measure and we can only hope that the Senate has enough sense to back off and let that one die this year. Nah, they are having too much fun passing bills to spend more money that we have. MUD
My word for today is SIP Speak for that food you don't need after you eat more than you should. Dessart!

Paul Mitchell said...

Lemme just say, the turing word thingy is annoying on so many levels. Levels of which I was unaware when I had to start using it, too. Thanks, y'all, for adding to that list!

MUD, I just cannot wrap my brain around the stuff that they do in DC, it is like they are intelligence contrarians or something.
