The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

How's This for a Federal Jobs Program?

If these people want to go through the trouble of entering our country illegally multiple times a year, it's obvious that we aren't providing any disincentive for them to do so.

I therefore propose a solution from Ye Olden Time's Trusty Book of Solutions:

Federally-subsidized construction.

Oh wait, that wasn't the right pic. Make that: Federally-Subsidized Construction!

As far as I've been able to tell, there is not a single better way to save money on a construction project than to reduce all of your labor costs to $0.

It certainly seems a more effective solution than paying for repeated airfare for the trip back home. And probably more humane, considering the way air travel is these days.

;)Update: Diversity alert:

RAMSEUR, N.C. -- Sheriff's deputies in North Carolina arrested 73 people on Saturday in what they called the largest cockfighting bust in county history.


Deputies arrested 73 people and said many of them were illegal aliens.

Obviously, I intended for you to have full credit, which is why I linked the caption back to you. I've gone ahead and pulled it, per your request. I guess it was an obscure visual pun anyway, huh?


Respectfully yours,

brian trying to get sneaky again??

btw, I have always liked the idea too that if people want to get the USA illegally and get a job, then there is a sure fire way to get citizenship.

serve 5 years on the front lines of our war on terror.

and have always been proud of chain gangs. if we are going to house and feed these idiot law breakers, then they should work for their state aid.

forgot to mention.... Isn't cockfighting illegal??? Then why are these people doing this? I thought these people struggled long and hard to get in to our country and are just here to provide food for their children. They are good law abiding people of our communities.
