Letter to the Editor

Here's an analogy

Wednesday, June 14, 2006

For those of you bewildered by my last letter to the editor concerning ILL-

Eagle (illegal) immigration, may I submit this analogy circulating on the Internet that nails it most distinctively. We should commit it memory so that we can tell the story by rote ... it is reality ... It is factual ... It is exactly what is being done to America ... repeat it to everyone you know ... especially to those republican jelly spine representatives, senators, all the liberal democrats in Washington D.C., and yes even President Bush if he aligns himself with those who would sell out on America's sovereignty like a prostitute on crack ... a cheap trick to satisfy a sick and corrupt mindset ...

Some of you have read it too. My hunch is most of you have not. So for those of you who have, hold your fire. I hope to share it with those who have not. Here's the analogy I read on the Internet....

"Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors; I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).

"According to illegal immigrants and their supporters, not only must you let me stay, you must add me to your family's insurance plan and provide other benefits to me and to my family (my husband will do your yard work because he too is hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part).

"If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends, and the ACLU, who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my right to be there, and your racism for objecting to it, It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm hard-working and honest ... um, except for ... well, you know.

"And what a deal it is for me! I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of selfishness, prejudice and being anti-housebreaker.

"Did I miss anything?"

(This is circulating publicly on the Internet. It has been forwarded thousands of times. It is not protected by copyright. So for those of you who can't wait to break off a finger nail punching your Speakout speed dial button, bite your tongue, and your finger. This is just one more forwarding of an important message.)

Further more, in the analogy above, if you object too strenuously my ACLU lawyer from the "Poverty Law Center" may even sue you and have your house awarded to me by a federal judge with a liberal agenda, and you'll have to pack your bags and leave. This is not a joke. This has actually already happened to a rancher in one of the border states who defended his property with a gun against illegals who came to rob him.
