23; On immigrationImagine this:
A man wins the lottery. He hits the big jackpot, 23 million dollars.
Then, he gets taxed 1/3 of it, 7.6Million dollars.
This means he just got 15.4 Million, which he didn't earn, which he doesn't especially deserve, but which he gets to use on whatever he wants.
And he bitches and moans about having to pay that 7mil in taxes
"Its so unfair, why should everyone else get to profit off of MY money? Why should MY money pay for roads and health care and schools and firemen and police? I can afford those things on my own, I don't need the government!"
Who here thinks this man is not a selfish ass?
But, realize, that this man is every American bitching about illegal immigrants.
You didn't "earn" being an American
YOU GOT LUCKY BY BEING BORN HERE
You don't deserve to be an American anymore than anyone else in the world.
You still have it better than 99% of the illegals who do make it in. You have a better job. You have a better house. You have more money. You have a better future.
You say you work hard - but if you give them a SS#, they can get a real job and work hard too.
You say they don't speak English, but then you turn around and complain that they enroll in public schools
THAT'S HOW THEY FUCKING LEARN ENGLISH
You want them to learn the language, let them go to school.
How obvious is that?
You want them to work and pay taxes, let them get papers so they can.
You think the population is too big, don't have children,
and set up protest rallies for all the people from NY and OH and the rest who keep moving here.
Why does someone born in Kansas have any more MORAL right to move here than someone born in Baja Norte?
Not to mention that Europeans got this land largely by deliberately spreading disease to the people who were already here. By whose standard is that "legal"?
If you want to distinguish between "legal" and "illegal", in all fairness we should require all American born individuals to take the standard citizenship exam, with deportation as the consequence for failure.
