From the Scriptorium
Recently the dialog on immigration has returned to the airways, thanks in part to the passing of the new law in Arizona….we see so many in protest on one side or the other….you have heard all the rhetoric from both sides of the aisle….like illegal immigrants are taking jobs needed for Americans in this recession…will the last American out of Arizona please turn off the lights…..and so many more little placards used to lather up the protesters…..But is any of that true? I am posting on the economics of illegals and nothing else…..the economics of illegal immigration on the jobs market.
From the website factcheck.org……
Most economists and other experts say there’s little to support the claim. Study after study has shown that immigrants grow the economy, expanding demand for goods and services that the foreign-born workers and their families consume, and thereby creating jobs. There is even broad agreement among economists that while immigrants may push down wages for some, the overall effect is to increase average wages for American-born workers.
I have heard all the blame that is being passed around….it is NOTHING new……..was uttered during the Cubans arrival here and again when the South Vietnamese landed on our shores…..all the rhetoric being yelled is nothing but recycling from decades past. None of the predictions those anti-immigration folk came to be true…but yet the Right and some on the Left keep recycling BS from the past……get a new line….your present one is a bit tiresome……
Before I get the inevitable hate mail let me be clear….I believe that the immigration laws and techniques need to be updated and made more clear….but that ball is in the government’s court….and you know just how worthless that is……
Hey, Lou Dobbs are you listening?
From the Scriptorium/Vomitorium
First of all the “TP” does not stand for toilet paper, even though I think the bill could be used as such, it stands for Tea Party…..
In the beginning of the “End of Days” the Tea Party guys/gals were up in arms about the government bailing out the banks using hard earned tax dollars taken from the average person…they then went head over heels against the health reform bill….you know the stuff they call “Obamacare”? They have almost always been against taxes and tax increases….then they ….well let us just say they have been very vocal most of the time……..
Then they moved on to the constitutionality of ANY of the Dems programs….health care, FinReg, taxes, ………pick a situation an they see it as a slap at the constitution……..but yet a direct assault on the US Constitution goes without comment…..what am I going on about? You may ask……
Arizona is the simple answer….illegal aliens is another…..put them together and you have the new bill signed by the governor of Arizona last Friday…..basically the bill reads like this:
SB1070′s broad instruction to police that when there is “reasonable suspicion” that a person is an illegal immigrant, a “reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable” to check for documents
It is saying to people of Hispanic descent, “Do not leave the house without your wallet”…….sorry you people but do not look now but this is possibly a violation of the 14th amendment, which reads:
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
I point this out because for all their false bravado, none of them are coming in opposition to the Arizona bill…….so much for yelling about the Constitution…….if it applies to health care then it definitely applies to the racist law now in force in Arizona……sorry but your silence puts an end to the argument that the Tea Party movement is NOT a racist grassroots movement……
So STOP standing on the Constitution because you hate Obama! To you guys it is nothing but a political prop to be used in your hate-mongering…..Grow some nuts and for once tell the truth about your hate!
