I like George, but you have to understand he has made a living- a good one at that- wetting his finger and sticking it up to see which way the political winds are blowing. A crime? Naah, but he should be forced to wear a sign around his neck stating such- for clarity.
Simply put, he’s not a conservative. But when convenient, he plays one on TV!
“We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to American, you’re going to go to school and get a job and become Americans,’” Will said. “We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these eight-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous.”
Wallace said he could hear the complaining emails being written as they spoke.
Will dismissed them. “We can handle this problem. We’ve handled what Emma Lazarus famously called ‘the wretched refuse of your teeming shores’ a long time ago and a lot more people than this.”
I watched the whole exchange live. I could FEEL brain cells in my heads popping! How out of touch is he? Why even take that stance? It could be argued he is taking a look at the lay of the land and simply charting a course down the middle. The problem is, his course will make all of us stumble into the deep end of a lake!
Twenty percent of the illegals are kids, the rest are adults. Is he suggesting we send the moms and pops and over eighteen year old siblings back home and just keep the little ones? Frankly that is offensive and a little frightening. We don’t do that. But if so, then he is not accurate on his twenty a county bullshit. In fact, if the twenty-two million figure thrown around as the current illegal population is correct, we already have over seven thousand unskilled, low level employment, entitlement using, population busting illegals in each county NOW!
Add another couple of million and the numbers go up. But Will knows this. He also knows we aren’t going to spread the illegals evenly over the nation like an icing on a cake. Jeez. They will concentrate within already established locations that cater to their needs, like California, New York, Texas, the border states and Florida. (And maybe North Carolina too, I’ve heard from a friend of mine there is quite a large number up there.)
But by taking this position, George wants the LEGAL immigrations, who are waiting sometimes ten years to get the right to come here, to take another one in the teeth. And that is offensive to me. I love my nation, and I respect anyone who wants to come here because it is a BETTER LIFE. They get it. The illegals are not wanting to come up here and be Americans, they want to come here and strip us of what we offer, sending a good deal of it home, which is why their governments are encouraging the migration.
If the Republicans are serious, they should be the party of legal immigrants and have public meetings with their groups. I can’t imagine someone who pays and waits and fills out the tons of paperwork in order to truly be part of America are very happy about what is happening along the border.
The Democrats paint the Republicans as the party of the old white guys. They aren’t at their core. They are a party of the “follow the f-ing rules dumbass!”. Which is why the core hates Obama. Not because he’s black, as the Left wants you to believe, but because he is acting the same way all “entitled Lefts” are acting. That his way is the only way and if HE wants it, he’ll do what he wants to get it. We’ve seen example after example of the same behavior from people like Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Nancy Pelosi, Harry “I think I hear voices!”Reid.
It’s not a race thing, it is a class/entitlement thing. That is why when the wheels come off, the people inside the castle will be of mixed backgrounds and races, and the people wielding the torches and pitchforks will be the same. Only class will separate them.
