Assuming these are all motivated, ambitious people needing work, they are still leaving where they are desperately needed and moving where they aren't.Posted by b moe at June 29, 2014 4:47 AM
moe: good point. Would that it were true. I am afraid your assumption is wrong. Maybe I am a cynical grumpy old fart but I think most of those flooding our border vibe negative: lazy, moochers, criminals, disease-ridden, they are but pawns in the game of Cloward-Piven strategy.
They are also prospective voters for the democrats. They will displace Blacks as the new urban plague.
Today they are taking our underwear, tomorrow when the food runs out they will be coming after citizens with machetes.

It is not work which can be found in Europe, it is welfare. But they know this.Posted by james wilson at June 29, 2014 9:58 AM
There's something rattling around in the back of my mind about a ship, or ships, filled with Jews escaping the Holocaust during WWII and they were denied access in some ports, maybe US and Britain?
Also one or several ships trying to get out of Jamaica with the followers of Haile Selassie, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. All them Rastafarians wanted to go to Ethiopia, supposed origin of civilization. Well, Rasta civilization I guess.
Very nice, good plan.
But what if the 20% refuse to play along? What if they either won't give it up or stop producing?

Silly Me: Question, did the Kulaks have the second amendment?Posted by John the River at June 30, 2014 9:38 AM
John: that's a good question. Seems to me there will always be a need for workers to wind the clocks and change light bulbs and take out the garbage.
Oh, and to boss everybody around.
A modest proposal. No, not like Swift's. The meat is all tainted.
There is a lot of unpopulated land in the Southwest. I suggest that secondary borders be erected at the northern border of Arizona extending east over New Mexico
and on across Texas, turning to follow the eastern border of Texas.
Let the eager and ambitious immigrants homestead like our forefathers did, taming the land and establishing communities for themselves.
Any that were not eager and ambitious would have the option of staying and dying or being sent home with a good hard punch in the face to die in their homeland.
It would be sink or swim. Er, the desert version.
P.S. California would remain open to all the immigrants that wanted to live there. San Francisco would be offered as the primary area to settle. Right in their own back yards as the NIMBY goes.
We should have erected border fences around Cali years ago.
