Missouri the most ridiculous Republican talking point ever on illegal immigration.
Edited on Thu Nov-16-06 11:58 AM by gordianot
From the Kansas City Star see link: http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/news/local/160...

"JEFFERSON CITY | A report from a Republican-led Missouri House committee argues that illegal immigration is partly the result of abortion and a welfare culture, findings that Democrats called ridiculous.

The six Democrats on the House Special Committee on Immigration Reform refused to sign the panels final report, which was signed by the 10 Republican members. In a letter to Rep. Ed Emery, the Lamar Republican who heads the committee, the Democrats said the report included things the panel never discussed and other comments that were inappropriate."


When I first heard this on the radio last night I almost had a wreck. These idiots are actually suggesting that illegal aliens are filling job demand created by a shortage of workers the result of abortion. Sick

1. I agree with the Repugs. In fact, from now on, any Woman requesting an Abortion.....
...shall be bussed to the nearest Cabbage field and as soon as her "Little One"
is born, shall be required to teach the little darling how to bend over all day
in the Hot Sun, Sweat like a Stinkin' Mule and buy all His/Her products and Services from
The "GOP Company Store".

2. This is one very backward state.
Some strides were made in the Sixties, but the educational system here has been underfunded for decades.

The right-wing politicians have it made here . . . so many people don't know how to reason for themselves--they make good sheep.

Maybe McCaskill's election is a sign of better trends for the future . . .

3. Test-tube workers.
Drones. A true "working class" without any right to vote or organize. Dystopia.

4. Several Sci-Fi short stories and novels do come to mind.
Even in other fiction I do not think I have ever heard of anyone linking abortion and illegal aliens.
