Amnesty is what has made America different from all other nations… Our willingness to use it liberally is credited for rebuilding the world after the minions of Germany and Japan had destroyed it.

Amnesty is what glued the United States back together after brother fought brother in the Civil War. Sure you can keep your guns and horses said Ulysses S. Grant.  Just give us your word you won’t fight the United States of America again.

Amnesty takes place across America every Sunday after the football rivalries have been settled for one week.  The losers forgive the winners and everyone moves on.

Amnesty is why we established reservations.  We took native American’s land, but we gave them amnesty for trying to kill us for it.

Amnesty is how America of the 19th Century welcomed new labor coming across two oceans because jobs were available here.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

So says the Statue of Liberty, that beckon of freedom so many hateful people point to whenever they utter the words freedom….

Not to mention the ugly side of amnesty that has kept Republicans and conservatives out of jail.

The amnesty for poisoning 300,000 West Virginian’s drinking water.

The amnesty for lying about the safety of derivatives, when you were actually placing your bets that they would fail.

The amnesty for destroying the biosphere of 1000 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico,  because the Vice President of the United States used to be the chairman of your oil company.

The amnesty for causing fracking quakes in Ohio, Oklahoma, and West Virginia.

The amnesty for blowing up a Texas town with an uninspected fertilizer plant.

The amnesty for banks loaning out mortgages they knew would be underwater, and then they could rebuy them at pennies on the dollar.

Every American has at least five cases in their life, when they were offered amnesty over something they did, either as a kid, a young adult, a mature adult, or elderly adult….

Amnesty is America… WE, THE PEOPLE, would not be here on this planet if it were not for amnesty….

Imagine if our pilgrims, had been massacred at Plymouth?  Imagine if Jamestown was not rediscovered by resupplying sailing ships similar to the disappearing colonies of Roanoke and Lewes. Even more so, imagine if all those immigrants hitting Ellis Island were deported?  After all, none of them had prearranged visas. Imagine if all the Japanese held in concentration camps, were shot? After all, they WERE the same race that bombed Pearl Harbor in a very sneaky attack, one that was not sporting at all.

Amnesty IS America… If there is any one single factor that makes Americans worthy of being considered for a manifest destiny, it is the fact that we were known as righteous and decent people who were very practical in making decisions.  We did not let grudges color our judgment even after we’d just got done killing each other…

It is ironical that those who are most evangelical among our members, are the most virulent against amnesty, and are acting equally against the word of their own God.

“But I say to you who here, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”

Our Christian friends who say “NO AMNESTY”; are not Christians.  They are agents of the devil.

“Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites (Republicans), as it is written, “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” And He said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!”  Mark 7:6-9

It is unlikely the American tradition of full amnesty will be put into effect tonight…. We, as a nation, should be sad. If we are ever to reserve our place as the nation above all nations, … it should be full amnesty that we see….

We would not be here at all, but for full amnesty once begotten to us by men apparently much wiser than our leaders are today..

Just heard on WDEL, that the Congressional Budget Office has scored the cost of the Gang of 8 Immigration Act…

The immigration bill under consideration in the Senate would reduce federal deficits by nearly $200 billion over the next decade, and continue generating savings in the years beyond, even after millions of new citizens became eligible for health-care and welfare benefits, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday.

This is so full of common sense, it makes those who hate Hispanics have to now solely rely on the argument that they hate Hispanics in order to stymie Immigration Reform. No more costs involved with deportation, with detention, with investigation, with employee verification, with I-9 investigation. As citizens endowed with the same rights as Southern hand-fishing Hillbillies, they contribute immensely to the revenue pool. Taxes, social security, medicare, all legally deducted from their pay checks. They can buy insurance. They can get valid licenses. There are so many cost savings.

Not included in this CBO estimates, are the benefits to state and local governments as well, which probably each are equal to the federal savings, creating a $600 billion bump to our GDP over time…

Thanks WDEL for the timely release of news. (they were on the air 40 minutes after the CBO book was released)…

Con’s against Illegal Immigration.
Lowering wage rates
Sapping our entitlement system
Lack of accountability; no drivers liscense, no insurance
Not fair to those waiting in line.
Two language society.

Pro’s for Making Illegal Immigrants Legal
Acquisition of Drivers Licenses = Accountability to the law.
Can report employers attempting to pay under minimum wage.
Can get private insurance, and not sap hospitals with free medical
Forces those waiting first in bureaucratic lines through faster.
One people; one language.

If you are like me, you can see the answers are pretty apparent. Both side’s arguments get solved, by making the 16 million people living, working, raising families here, legal. The only argument that does not get solved, and it is irrelevant, is that since I don’t like them, they can’t be here. That is your personal problem and I suggest you get over it.

Worried about the downward pressure of wages? Unionize them. Most would be glad to join, and then wages begin climbing for all.

Giving them legal status, means they can buy medical insurance from their employer. Their employer pays the medical cost and passes it on in every product. It is not paid by every other insurer out of THEIR premiums.

Every illegal citizen would love a drivers license. They want them so bad, there is an entire cottage industry that forges them, then sells them for a hefty price. Help make all drivers licenses legal. Legalize the owner so he can get a valid one.

Use the forced legalization of Mexican residents, to purge our lists of those who have played by the rules and waited in line. Fill the Rose Bowl up, swear them in, and be done with it. Once the books are clear, we can begin processing those who have been in this nation 20 years, then work backwards. Those on the list would find they “owe” the original wetbacks for taking care of the red tape placed there for no reason, other than make it appear hard to enter the USA legally.

And if you require English as the language of choice, go ahead, and make it a requirement for citizenship. You want citizenship, you can learn English. They don’t have to know the kings English, because no one knows the Kings English in America. We need to be loose with the difficulty of our English tests, or be fair, and make rednecks, inner city blacks, and gays from Provencetown, lose their citizenship until they can speak with American accents too… 🙂

So you see, … making those who have lived here 20 years in the shadows breaking numbers of laws to look like model citizens and respectable members of society, is rather easy.

It’s just prejudice that stands in the way. And boy, do they hate Mexicans in Arizona.
