Limbaugh Law's ( interestingish)
Limbaugh Laws. Here they are. First, if you immigrate to the United States of America, you must speak the native language. You have to be a professional or an investor. We are not going to take unskilled workers. You will not be allowed. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, no government business will be conducted in your native language. Foreigners will not have the right to vote, I don't care how long they are here, nor will they ever be allowed to hold political office. According to the Limbaugh Laws, if you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled, ever, to welfare, to food stamps, or other government goodies. You can come if you invest here, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If you don't know have that amount of money, you can't come and invest. You have to stay home. If you do come and you want to buy land, okay, but we're going to restrict your options. You will not be allowed to buy waterfront property in the United States. That will be reserved for citizens naturally born in this country.
In fact, as a foreigner, you must relinquish individual rights to property. These are the Limbaugh Laws. Another thing. You don't have the right to protest when you come here. You're allowed no demonstrations, you cannot wave a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies, or you get sent home. You're a foreigner. You shut your mouth or you get out, and if you come here illegally, you go straight to jail and we're going to hunt you down 'til we find you.
I can imagine many of you think that the Limbaugh Laws are pretty harsh. I imagine today some of you probably are going, "Yeah! Yeah!" Well, let me tell you this, folks. Every one of the laws I just mentioned are actual laws of Mexico, today. I just read you Mexican immigration law. That's how the Mexican government handles immigrants to their country. Yet Mexicans and others come here illegally, they protest in our streets, they get on our welfare program, and we have members of the United States Senate, both parties, doing handstands and back flips, going through every contortion possible to allow it to continue so that it doesn't make these people mad, resulting in votes against these linguini-spined populations.
This is more than a double standard. It is an indication of just how gutless people in charge in this country are to protect the identity of this country. They don't care about border security, I know the ports deal notwithstanding, they're not doing a thing to shore up the border, because that might make somebody mad. It's a good thing there are a whole lot of Arab voters in this country or the port deal would have gone through, too.

Vincente Fox is unintentionally hilarious so these laws don't surprise me one bit.

I'm a teacher, and not a proponent of bilingual ed. as it just reaffirms isolation, but it is interesting that the first bilingual ed. programs were in German, and this was not a controversial issue until WWI. Again, it came back in Florida during the Exodus from Cuba, when wealthier Cubans were welcomed. Once unsavory Cubans began to arrive, the program met widespread decrial. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools
So I guess this means that my dad should have his right to vote revoked, despite the fact that he risked his life for this country, and bears the scars to prove it. And he shouldn't have a voice, despite the fact that through sheer hard work he pays a fortune in taxes on an income well into the 6 figure range, while doing quality work with the highest standards of ethics with regards to pricing, something that cannot be said for many of his American counterparts. Foreigners will not have the right to vote, I don't care how long they are here,
I agree According to the Limbaugh Laws, if you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled, ever, to welfare, to food stamps, or other government goodies. Is Limbaugh shooting for a semblance to slavery or imprisonment here? n fact, as a foreigner, you must relinquish individual rights to property.
So we want to be as backwards and ****ed up as the government of a country that just emerged from 100 years of "el dedazo", each president hand picking his successor? We want our governmental structure to mirror that of a nation that people risk their lives to depart from? Every one of the laws I just mentioned are actual laws of Mexico, today. I just read you Mexican immigration law. That's how the Mexican government handles immigrants to their country.
And I have to call bull**** on the waterfront property issue. Think of all the waterfront vacation destinations in Mexico. Yeah, none of those places are owned by foreigners The real owners aren't the Hilton's, but the Eel-tones
So how does Limbaugh's wisdom trickle down to the offspring of the immigrants? I suppose Limbaugh is descended from the Cherokee, or some other tribe. No one in his family could have ever immigrated, right? What is the difference? Skin color? Language? I guess no Italian Americans should be able to hold office either...

maaan, you ook this very far lol.. he was just trying to make fun of the mexican laws, while there are millions of mexicans wanting to work here.. and if you wanted to go to mexico it is harder yada yada and mexico is pissed off that we want to make it hard to come here.. sheeesh!

I don't suppose anyone has ever called Limbaugh an idiot?
04-10-2006 04:45 PM
Beowulf did you even read the 2nd paragraph? You can direct your criticism of Rush's "laws" to the Mexican government. All he was doing was illustrating the absolutely ridiculous double standard that exists.
As for you Spartan, thanks for giving us possibly the most retarded comment ever. What public figure (or even regular person) hasn't been called an idiot by someone (right or wrong)?
04-10-2006 05:59 PM
When you just read something it can be harder to pick up on the tone. Did he mean this as a joke? Or did he intend to convey an attitude of "if you do it to us, we'll do it to you."

I think the overall tone was 'stop complaining,' especially aimed at the illegals who come here and then demand "better treatement" from our government while parading up and down US city streets waving the Mexican flag.

I've heard too many people, mostly lefties and illegals themselves, try to get the word illegal out of the debate, and that's plain BS. They're here illegally, period. They may be, just like me, otherwise law abiding, but they are still breaking the law. That their actions are illegal is extremely relevant to the debate. The law isn't a mushy, buttery tool. It's backed up with a gun, key to the debate is whether or not the law is justified relative to the eventual force that will be used to enforce it against anyone who actively resists.
I especially hate the repeated attempts to get rid of the word illegal from this debate because of the people who have immgrated to this country legally, or who are attempting to do so legally, like several of my friends and my own mother. It isn't so hard to do things right, got to wonder why the hell more people can't do it that way. That's what pisses me off.
What scares me is the relative lack of protests against illegal immigration. It's scary when in this country you can find hundred of thousands of people ready to march for free **** and special treatment and relatively few people willing to march for doing the right thing and moderation.
To give them some credit at least these freaks are waving American flags now. Too bad it seems an exercise in political know-how instead of a statement of true loyalty for most of them.

Like I said, it is hard to infer tone based only on written words.
Interestingly, even Rush seems to have eliminated it from the debate, at least in this instance. If the floodgates would be open our nation would obviously regress decades.

You might be surprised at how difficult it is. It all depends on what country the person is coming from. My wife is from S.America (legally), and her brother wanted to come visit. He was denied a tourist visa. He was the head engineer on the construction of the building within which he was denied the visa. Do they really think he is going to stay here illegally to wash dishes or cut lawns? He makes a solid 6 figures in a developing country. He can live like royalty. He'd have to be crazy to move here. So if he had that much trouble, do you really think some orphan in Guadalajara has a chance in hell of getting here legally?

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to CDB again.

brogers, you ever heard of sarcasm? I'm sure you wouldn't have said anything had you agreed with the comment. There are alot of people that listen to him and that is the kind of crap that uneducated people or people too lazy to go find the facts for themselves will use to justify there views(right or wrong). I kind of think broadcasting stuff like that is irresponsible especially in such a one sided manner, and yes I have listened to him. The immigration issue is a big issue and I could care less what Mexican law says about immigration when we have our own problems.
04-10-2006 07:30 PM
I agree, Limbaugh is an entertainer, first and foremost--just like Al Franken. I hope no one actually looks to these guys for anything but entertainment.
04-10-2006 07:31 PM
I agree Beo, but over here in E. Texas, alot of these people look to him as the conservative gospel.

That is friggin' hilarious. It looks like it is trying to say the Texas and Mexico are one (actually, they were). Funny thing is, almost every Latino I have met is Republican, often passionately.
Both parties are just trying to the Latino vote; the Republicans are doing a better job.
BTW, just because this is on the internet does not mean it is authentic
04-11-2006 08:53 PM
Texas could always annex itself from the union and then conquer Mexico. Mexas could be the world's new super power. Just a thought People would travel from all over just to eat, it would be great.
04-12-2006 01:46 AM
Granted, especially from someone like Rush.

Perhaps Rush's point was stop complaining and have some perspective. We will either have a process for becoming a citizen or we won't, and people will abide by it or they won't. Those who don't are illegal, plain and simple. To let that go without punishment of any kind, including deportation, seems a defacto open borders policy in the worst sense and a slap in the face to every law abiding legal immigrant in this country. That's the bottom line issue no one wants to face, that illegals have broken the law and any "comprehensive plan" that lefties and the illegals will 'go along with' will have to excuse that to some degree if not totally. The problem there is it's not like overlooking a pot or shoplifting bust when they were young or fixing some parking tickets. Violation of immgration law, especially post 9/11, is something that should be taken seriously.
