Stevie Joe, Dickie Jensen, and Immigration Reform

This afternoon at the Junebug Cafe and Internet Lounge, Dickie Jensen came running in yelling, "Goddamn amnesty! Goddamn amnesty! Son of a bitch!" Dickie often reminds me of the famous John Stuart Mill quote:
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people . . . it is true that most stupid people are conservative.
Apparently, Dickie had just heard about the proposed compromise on immigration reform. I had as well, and I can tell you that it ain't going anywhere. Under the proposed bill, undocumented workers can apply for permanent resident status if they pay a $5,000 fine, pay several thousand more in application fees, and then return to their home countries to await permission to re-enter.

What kind of idiot thinks that anyone is actually going to do that? I guess it's the kind of idiot that gets elected to Congress. It sure seems like these folks have absolutely no idea what the life of an undocumented worker is like.

Of course, Dickie has no idea either, but that doesn't stop him from jumping up and down screaming like a lunatic. We really need to get him on some tranquilizers.
