On the immigration thing.

Posted by Wickedpinto on May 31, 2007

Look, I’m not a lawyer (one of my few redeeming traits) I didn’t read the bill, cuz I’m not suicidal, and don’t wanna become suicidal, but a long time ago I came to the conclusion that whenever I hear the word “comprehensive” I know that a lot more stuff is gonna be broken on the way to fixing one thing.  The few things I do know about this bill, is that they aren’t even making a real effort to fix the one thing that should be fixed.   Build a friggen wall!  It’s not complicated, in fact, the very first structure ever built by our caveman ancestors (sorry geico) was likely a wall, then another wall, then another wall, and another, only after that they said “hey! you know what?  we need a roof.”  I’m not saying build 4 walls and a roof, just 1 friggen wall, the technology has been around for a long time.  Pass one bill that simply says “Hey! lets build just ONE wall?” and I’m all for it, seeing as how I know that if we have a “comprehensive wall” bill get passed, it will be 1/3 a wall, and 6 roofs with contracts distributed over some 400 constituent area’s.

 Just a wall, submit it, and kill it, see how many people who vote against get elected.

Now to my point (didn’t take any time did it? :)  Hugh Hewitt who is an immigration moderate had this to say, and I think it’s awesome when smart people get so riled up that they will talk like this.

No one believes that the employer verification system will get done or work when some half-assed version of it does get done.

  1. Should I trackback every post I steal from? I mean, I’m only stealing one line from a shortform essay.

    WP, I visit a lot of sites I would never know about just because I see them in a trackback. That’s how I found Ace’s place.

    And I nominate this phrase as a new art form we shall call ‘Pintoism':
    “Now to my point (didn’t take any time did it?” I love that line.

  3. PattyAnn, “pintoism,” The girlfriend I sometimes talk about “T” with the pornstar body, and who was mentioned in the “5 things that irritated me today” thing.

    She literally has a small diary filled with (myfirstname)ism’s. I’m not even REMOTELY as prolific now as I was then with my ability to say nice things in a very horrible way. In fact when her friends (who knew me) would ask why we were together, her response was “he says some of the most beautiful things in the most horribly offensive way.”

    I took that as a compliment.

    The way I learned it is: caveman build fire, gather around the fire, and finally constructed a roof to keep the fire from getting put out by the snow and rain. They raised a pole (the Axis Mundi if you please)to support a roof at the center…which by the way conflicted with the fire, then they had to figure out how to get rid of the smoke and keep the pole from catching on fire, then during the High Gothic period they mastered the flying buttress allowing more windows which allowed daylight into the center of the cathederal eliminating the need for torchlight thus freshening the air. I missed a few thousand years, but here is my point, WP that description is genius, my hippie ass proffessors, never mentioned a word about SECURITY. It was a happy naked campfire party.
    Thanks for clearing that up.

  5. Joe just channeled WP for the first time!!!

    It’s liberating isn’t it?

    They did pass a bill to fund building a wall (for part of the border) a while back — they just haven’t gotten around to doing much about it.

  7. See what I mean? comprehensive wall bill. Where are the roofs contracted too? don’t tell me pennsylvania and west virginia.
