I'm sure there's a hilarious racial/ethnic joke in this article somewhere, but if there is, I'll let this guy glean it, polish it, and display for the world to enjoy. You see, judging people based on the color of their skin and propogating stereotypes for an easy joke at the expense of a possible few is not my bag. I'm a uniter. And I believe that all God's creatures got a place in the choir. Sure, some sing high, some sing low, and some sing out loud on the telephone wire. And there are a few - let me tell you about these guys - they just clap their hands, or paws, or anything they got now.

But I digress. Let's talk about the issue at hand. The issue being a fleeing $46 billion, which we all know is a lot of money. And that large gob of money is doing what, exactly? It's getting itself shipped out of our country and getting itself stuffed in the pocket of a mariachi band. It's getting itself used to purchase churros, sombreros, hot sauce, and a couple rusty parts for that 1973 Ford Fairlane sitting up on blocks over there, oh man, that thing's gonna hum someday, seriously, you watch, I just need, like, three more parts and a belt. It's $46 billion that's not getting taxed, $46 billion that's not going into a health insurance policy or a retirement fund, $46 billion that's not helping pay for my aunt's social security checks, $46 billion that's not paying emergency room costs, $46 billion that's not going into a decent car insurance plan.

What I'm getting at is just plain horse sense, people. We need to stop paying these illegal immigrants the petty wage of $4/hour to watch our children and harvest our soybeans. They're clearly just throwing it away on cockfights or shipping it back home to be spent on tequila and guns. Let's reduce their wages by half and put the rest towards something meaningful, like the military, or perhaps the campaign to privatize social security.
