Striking Out

Here's my American Spectator piece about the May 1 pro-illegal immigration general strike.

"Perhaps it's time for proponents of legalization to rethink their approach to the entire debate. Through their strike, illegals betray a mindset suggesting that their contribution to America is, and would be, primarily economic. What they don't seem to understand is that many, many Americans are willing to give them a full hearing and a fair shake -- but only if we are convinced that the people seeking to earn citizenship in the United States are doing it, not for a paycheck, but out of a real love for this country and a sincere desire to become proud, patriotic Americans."

The first couple of paychecks may get them to think of what to spend it on then what a better life in USA could mean to them then citizenship. Many first time immigrants get the habit of liking the country they settle in.

Fire every one of them. I’m ready to handle any inconvenience that may occur and my guess is that so is the rest of the nation. This is nonsense . . . they are demonstrating in support of a hoard of illegal foreign nationals that are violating our laws, challenging our sovereignty and overwhelming our hospitals and social services. Furthermore, it appears to me that a boycott by the rest of America against Tyson Foods, Gallo Wines, and the rest of the US based firms that pander to these illegals would be appropriate.

Pundits are fond of pointing out how stupid Bush is but think about it, how blindingly dumb Osama Bin Laden looks.

"Say, Osama, how did that thing go on the World Trade Center? Ya, where you were going to punish the US for having troops in Saudi Arabia. Oh, not so good, you've got troops crawling all over you. Hmmm"

"Hey, Jesse, how did that boycott thing work out? Ya, where you were going to punish the US for, uhh, something or other. Oh, not so good, you mean where you ended up punishing the very folks who were employing you. Hmmm"

Michelle Malkin debated a MeChista who believes we should be governed by mobs in the streets, no need for borders, just do whatever the mobs say. Wonderful. I was in a small mob once, I never want to get the sinking, scary feeling of unchecked power you get, the total abandonment of responsibility and accountability that one gives up, the thought crosses your mind, what if this mob turns on me, will anyone stop them. The answer, of course, is, no. I was very young but I quickly sensed, understood what was happening and I ran from it, fast.
