Subject: This whole Arizona law
Usually when I don't know how to take sides on
an issue, like this one, I tend to resort to very simple questions
that I think the average person can answer. And
when they can't answer the questions to my satisfaction,
it shows me that A LOT of people may not have
the full story, or they have their own bias, or they don't know just as
much as I do.
So here are my simple questions to this matter.
1. Is this law that Arizona just passed, the kind
of law that should already be in effect in regards to illegal aliens? In
If not, how do we determine an illegal alien
IS in fact an illegal alien? We have to look at documentation somehow.
2. If we are debating about illegal immigrants,
who would want to take sides of the criminal?
Isn't breaking the law, breaking the law? If
not, why bother following any laws?
3. If we had a law that employers couldn't hire
illegal immigrants because they are illegal, (just like they cant hire
us if we do
illegal drugs or any other illegal stuff that
is termed "illegal") then wouldn't that make the illegal immigrants have
to become legal thus alleviating a huge part
of the problem?
If people don't know if they like Arizona's law
I suggest they should look from the perspective of the extreme opposite.
(All borders are open, no checkpoints) and see
how they jive with that and look their way towards the middle ground.
Of course the MSM always has to turn this into
a black and white issue (no pun intended). The media does its best to
deflect our attention away from option #3, #4,
#5 etc. The options that are actually good ones.
Read you everyday Bart,
Duey, you might be looking at this from the perspective
of, "In a perfect world, why would..."
but this world is anything but perfect so we
have to go with what we've got.
I'm guessing the only way to have a semi-intelligent
position on this would be to live in Arizona
and read the newspapers every day for a couple
of years and watch the TV discussions.
As time goes by, I'd be able to spot the bullshit
artists and the racist pigs.
1. What do you tell the Mexican-looking American
who's grandparents were born in Arizona in 1920 after he's
been pulled over 100 times while an angry
cop demands to see his papers to see if he's allowed to be here or not?
2. The guy I just talked about is legal.
White people have no idea what it's like to be hassled by a racist cop.
If you've been pulled over 100 times, maybe you've
had a gun pointed at you 30-40 times.
The more times you do that, the more chance their
is for a mistake and boom - he's dead.
Far as I know, nobody is on the side of the illegals.
The question is how do you tell who's illegal
without robbing all dark-skinned Americans of
their right to freely walk down the street?
3. We have those laws now, but enforcing them seems to be next to impossible.
I have an answer, tho. Since the problem is we can't build a high enough
I suggest we fill the Rio Grand with thousands of hungry crocodiles.
(That's a joke)
Soon, the immigration Northward would stop.
