Immingrant Analogy

Postby liv2hunt » Wed Aug 10, 2005 3:33 pm

I was on Foxnews.com earlier and found this analogy by a reader. Thought it was good. Too bad no one in Washington seems to agree. I am a Bush supporter, but come on guys! Get with the program Dubbya!

"Dan B. in Boise writes:

To any of the far-lefties who think illegal immigration is the greatest thing since tortilla chips, let's look at the situation in an allegorical microcosm: Someone illegally breaks into your home because you have it better than they do and they want what you have. Never mind that you work at least 40 hours a week and pay your fair share of taxes. It's perfectly acceptable for this person to break into your home and expect you to feed them, clothe them, board them, and educate them — at your expense. How long would you put up with it? How many extra people sleeping in your bedroom and eating the fruit of your labor are enough? Is there a limit to how much illegality you'd put up with? What most "immigrants-right" folks forget is the word "illegal" ... as in, "ILLEGAL Immigrants." Think about it (and let the cognitive dissonance roll).

Great post.

That is one thing I can't stand about President Bush. Why does he continue support illegal immigrants?

This reminds me of that new Tim McGraw song, "Do you Want Fries with that?"

You oughta see the factory I work at. It's probably only about 50% white american workers. You should see some of the conversations that go on in that place. You've got Bosnians trying to teach Mexicans how to run the equipment, and then you get an ebonics speaking black guy trying to speak to the mexican. It amost makes you wanna laugh when you watch it.

here, here...liv2hunt! i will never understand why some people believe it's ok for illegals to be here. imo, there are no shades-of-gray when it comes to the law.
Talk 'em into givin' up!

It's easier to get forgiveness than it is permission!
