Not very often, and most of it is spam, but occasionally I get email that requires some response. Here is one I felt compelled to respond to.
Time to crack down, folks. Be sure to vote ….. all you Democrats can ignore this as I’m sure you will.
Now this one came, like many of them do, with cute little graphics for each of the countries, and also for each of the nice benefits that illegal aliens get in our country. I didn’t even try to reproduce them here. Doesn’t it sound like something Glenn Beck would write? Or Rush Limbaugh? Notice the beginning implication that Democrats will not agree, but Republicans will?
Can you believe someone would suggest that we be more like Korea, or Afghanistan, or Iran? That we would be better off emulating Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro or Ayatollah Whats-his-face? The people that buy into this also tend to wrap themselves in the Stars and Stripes and proclaim America the greatest country in the history of civilization, but apparently don’t know the meaning of the word hypocrisy.
I received it from a friend who passes on lots of these emails. He tends to agree with most of them, but not always, so I’m not sure if he sent it knowing it would provoke a response, or he actually bought into it. In any event, here was my response:
Not sure I’m following the logic, but OK, let’s take it to it’s logical conclusion.
We’re not happy with our government for treating illegal aliens the way we do, so the solution is to change our government into one run as a divine dictatorship (Korea), or one run by Ayatollahs under Sharia law (Iran), or perhaps one like that run by the Taliban, again under even more repressive Sharia law (Afghanistan), or perhaps a Communist dictatorship (China and/or Cuba), or maybe a crackpot dictatorship (Venezuela) or finally, a divine monarchy (Saudi Arabia).
We’ll have to do away with Congress first, (and not just the Congress people there, but Congress as a legislative entity) then the court system we have, then we’ll have to make sure that all minorities and women are put in their place, (low paying jobs and the kitchen, respectively), then we’ll need to abolish Social Security, Medicare, and all other benefit programs to the poor, mentally challenged and the old. Then, everyone that is retired will have to go back to work, and we’ll have to stop believing in the Christian god and praising either Allah, Buddha or no particular god. Jesus gets thrown out and all church properties should be appropriated by the government. Libraries should close, except those containing copies of the Koran or Das Kapital. Oh, and we’ll have to expel all the Jews.
Life will look a little different for us, but hey, we won’t have those damned illegal aliens around anymore to bug us!
Do I have that right? 😉
