Coming Soon! Shamnesty Day in the USA!

April 10, 2013
Colorado USA

In a somewhat irreverent exercise of the first amendment:
Illegals march on DC like bonafide citizens demanding legal status

I am not certain that the first amendment actually applies to people who are in the country illegally but given the perverted use of the word illegal by the powers that be to mean the exact opposite of unlawful, one cannot blame illegals for taking advantage of what appears to be a constitutional loophole.

Bill of Rights - Amendment 1: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Personally, I believe any shortcut to citizenship for illegals is unfair to real citizens of the USA. It is also unfair to real immigrants who have done the work required to become real citizens. I mistrust the concept that the easy way in leads to a better way for all. I mistrust the concept that the majority of illegals actually aspire to be legal. Sure we have a token number of well spoken, bright and intelligent poster child illegals currently being exploited by agenda-driven lawmakers. They are the ones who have benefited from the system and profited from a decent education but I soundly reject the unsubstantiated idea that those few are representative of more than a moderate percentage of illegals. Besides, those token few should have no problem acquiring citizenship by the standard method. Illegals demanding to be recognized as viable citizens and expecting the gift of citizenship by mere right of their unauthorized presence in this country does not play well in my world of: if–you-want-it–you-earn-it. Showing up for work and actually doing the job are two entirely different things – aren’t they?

Theodore Roosevelt said: In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

They [the illegals] march in support of an immigration reform bill that could be presented to lawmakers as early as Thursday of this week. The Senate's Gang of Eight is set to present an alleged bipartisan bill that will get shamnesty done once and for all – all illegals that is. Isn’t it just like a do-gooder lawmaker to hand out awards for everyone whether justly deserved or not? Once again this is likely a piece of Pelosiesque legislation that has to pass before we can see what’s in it. Make no mistake this path to citizenship is basically the road to a voting booth. Illegals should know that their over-zealous political benefactors in DC will go MIA as soon as they have imported their vote.

The classic greeting Welcome to the United States of America should carry the old adage be careful what you wish for as a disclaimer.

We have a pathway to citizenship in this country. It is not easy. Why should it be easy? Citizenship in this country is more than a piece of paper and a label – it requires participation and contribution and dedication. Purveyors of the myth telling how easy it is being a citizen of the USA – make me laugh. Somebody should tell them [illegals] that the drawbacks of legality may not be equally offset by the benefits of legality.

Heads up potential USA citizen-probies: Life in the USA as a documented legal citizen is a barrel of laughs filled from a bucket of tears and frustration and taxes. Here is a short list of the least you can expect from life as an official citizen of the USA… now you get to be registered, documented, numbered, licensed, regulated, deregulated, disarmed, judged, integrated, inspected, immunized, verified, stamped, authorized, unauthorized, fined, exploited, frustrated, indoctrinated, dismissed, demonized, challenged, probed, reported, objectified, insured, and best of all --- taxed, taxed, taxed out the wazoo. We welcome you to the lines at the DMV, the airport, and Social Security Administration and encourage you to sit down for a chat with the IRS.

By all means, march on! Please be advised that with citizenship the rights you demand today are the ones you will have to defend tomorrow. As a legal citizen you only get one vote. Despite what you may have heard, nothing in this country is a free ride. With legal USA citizenship you immediately acquire the status of American Infidel and become the official enemy of foreign countries you unwillingly support with your hard-earned tax dollars. Check the flag of your fathers and your ethnicity at the door because in the USA nobody cares about origins or ethnicity, except perhaps as fodder for protest and political rhetoric.

I say again… get legal, live the dream if you can find it, and become successful… so that your friends in DC can redistribute your wealth. Lots of old, crotchety, ill-tempered United States of America citizens need you to contribute your fair share to our retirement. March on!

Respectfully yours in unfailing allegiance to the USA,
Dissident Daughter
Because: Silence is the most insideous form of consent

P.S. Now go read this article by Michelle Malkin which explains how ignorant one would have to be to actually desire shamnesty... and how clueless one would be to actually offer amnesty... just sayin'... Object Lesson: Temporary amnesty never dies
“Temporary” amnesties never die. They just keep rolling and rolling along, producing new waves of cheap votes for Democrats and cheap labor for Big Business. American sovereignty, RIP.
