That’s what modernity requires to maintain pace. Career, family, leisure, or bowel movements: these are time consuming indulgences for men of infirm resolve. The Kakistocracy is perpetually questing, transexually cresting. It is the colonoscopy of western culture. And one that reams all the way through to our societal sinus cavity. So what today?
Though all of these surrealities will one day be worthy of cultural forensics, I’m now going to discuss a missive penned from three apex plutocrats to the only person two of them have ever cherished, George Washington. Such a public display of affection.
Here’s an example: On June 10, an incumbent congressman in Virginia lost a primary election in which his opponent garnered only 36,105 votes.
Was that vote total more or less than that garnered by your purchased candidate?
In particular, they are telling us that immigration reform — long overdue — is now hopeless. Americans deserve better than this.
It’s gratifying to learn that three of the wealthiest men in the world read this blog. Americans certainly goddamn do deserve better than this. Though legacy Americans aren’t your intended beneficiaries, are they?
And immigration reform is indeed long overdue. There should be a militarized border, end of stop-and-plop citizenry, severe workplace penalties, enormous reductions in legal quotas, and a wholesale end to the ludicrous visa lottery and refugee racket.
American citizens are paying 535 people to take care of the legislative needs of the country.
We may be assured that the bereavement expressed here over investments unblossomed is limited to three American citizens in particular. They bought their boys and now want their toys.
The three of us vary in our politics and would differ also in our preferences about the details of an immigration reform bill. But we could without doubt come together to draft a bill acceptable to each of us.
That’s selfless nobility. Three billionaire liberal globalists are willing to set aside their differences on whether Azimut-Benetti or Blohm & Voss represent the apogee of yacht design. This so that they may focus on what’s best for the American people: lowering wages and dissolving their sovereignty.
Most Americans believe that our country has a clear and present interest in enacting immigration legislation that is both humane to immigrants living here and a contribution to the well-being of our citizens.
Yes. It is perfectly humane to place illegal aliens on comfortable air conditioned transportation that delivers them painlessly to their countries of origin, with the gentle admonishment to never return under pain of unpleasant sanction. It would contribute to the well-being of actual citizens to not be invaded, in the same manner that not being invaded has contributed to polities since antiquity.
We believe it borders on insanity to train intelligent and motivated people in our universities — often subsidizing their education.
This is not merely adjacent to insanity, it resides far within its interior. Americans accept foreigners into our own institutions–often subsidizing their education–in lieu of the sons and daughters of the citizens funding those subsidies. We pay for others to take our rightful slots.
Unfortunately the insanity to which our loyal plutocrats refer is deportations.
A “talented graduate” reform was included in a bill that the Senate approved last year by a 68-to-32 vote. It would remove the worldwide cap on the number of visas that could be awarded to legal immigrants who had earned a graduate degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States, provided they had an offer of employment. The bill also included a sensible plan that would have allowed illegal residents to obtain citizenship, though only after they had earned the right to do so.
That’s a billion dollar idea! Remove all limitations to STEM-cell sorties. And as the labor tsunami results in peak $40,000/year engineering careers, what a magnet that will become for intelligent young Americans. When inevitably our own children are repulsed by the notion of pursuing a difficult discipline into a career of lean salaries and nepotistic Indians, what will be your response then? MOAR immigrants!
Americans are a forgiving and generous people, and who among us is not happy that their forebears — whatever their motivation or means of entry — made it to our soil?
The generosity and forgiveness of Americans has been manipulated and abused by you charlatans for generations now. Always it is us to accommodate, we to pay penance, our burden to suffer, The Economy to revere. No more. Never again. Generosity begins at home. Among and between us. And that is where it will ultimately end.
For the future, the United States should take all steps to ensure that every prospective immigrant follows all rules and that people breaking these rules, including any facilitators, are severely punished. No one wants a replay of the present mess.
No one but you. Wages will always need to be lower, revenues always to be higher. And while there exists a pair of blue eyes still blinking, diversity will always need to be greater.
We also believe that America’s self-interest should be reflected in our immigration policy. For example, the EB-5 “immigrant investor program,” created by Congress in 1990, was intended to allow a limited number of foreigners with financial resources or unique abilities to move to our country, bringing with them substantial and enduring purchasing power. Reports of fraud have surfaced with this program, and we believe it should be reformed to prevent abuse but also expanded to become more effective. People willing to invest in America and create jobs deserve the opportunity to do so.
Readers will likely require respite in their hyperbaric chambers after digesting that. Our three amigos believe that the soundest means to address this corrupted fraud vector is to…expand it. Who could have predicted that?
The current stalemate — in which greater pride is attached to thwarting the opposition than to advancing the nation’s interests — is depressing to most Americans and virtually all of its business managers. The impasse certainly depresses the three of us.
So depressed I imagine that only a weekend bacchanal in the Maldives will bring you around again. Or perhaps a Learjet sojourn to a filthy Southwestern barrio. I understand those to be full of people working to advance the nation’s interests.
Though which nation we were talking about? Mr. Adelson?
