This cry could be heard emminating from a westside basement and echoing throughout the downtown canyon today as Tony was stroking himself fast and furiously over the resignation of Frances Semler and, more importantly to Tony, the 97 (at last count) comments he recieved (most of them anonymous and quite possibly left by Tony himself) on his triumphant and self-congratulatory post announcing the resignation.
My friend Dan over at Gone Mild had less to say about it himself but also got quite a few comments. You can read about it at the Star and all of the major local news outlets.
Personally, I could give a shit.
Immigration, illegal or otherwise, just isn't that big an issue for me. The "native americans" were immigrants. They crossed over the frozen land bridge from Siberia 10,000 years ago chasing mastadons. The European "explorers" were immigrants. They sure as fuck didn't come peacefully or with the blessing of the "native americans". The Europeans who settled here didn't want the Irish. The Irish didn't want the Chinese. Everyone who came here was taking something away from someone who was already here.
Wah. Wah. Wah.
I keep hearing how "the illegals" are taking jobs from Americans. I see apparent latinos (I don't know where they are from or what their legal status is...do you?) working their ASSES OFF! I see apparently able bodied Americans holding humiliating cardboard signs at intersections and asking people for a down payment on a cheeseburger.
You really want to stop the "invasion" from Mexico? Grab those worthless white fucks standing at every corner of I-435 and Independence Avenue, 47th and Main, and everywhere else throughout the metro holding signs saying "homeless...will work for food", trying to look as pathetic as possible, and put them to work for money! Let them replace roofs in August, let them run a leaf blower, let them change jizz soaked sheets at Motel 6.
Go to Restart, Inc. or the Kansas City Public Library on a cold day and round up all the vagrants and put them to work doing all of the jobs that the immigrants are doing.
Fill the demand with Americans, and the supply from other places will go away.
Personally, I think we should just open up the northern and southern borders and just have one big North American Union!
The United States, Canada, Mexico, all one big, happy economic powerhouse! The European Union has the Euro. The North American Union could have the Neuro (okay, it's not really a valid acronym, but it makes us sound really smart).
Then we could finally forget about this irrational fear of Messicans and concentrate on the REAL problem.
Those goddamned Guatamalens.
