An immigration solution for Obama

Over at Reuters, they are starting up the next round of debates on the issue of Immigration now that Emperor Obama will soon tackle this issue. Here's my response to the article "Immigration can speed economic recovery":
------------------
Everyone who complains about the COST of keeping immigrants in the US should advocate abolishing all welfare and government-funded social services.

Everyone who complains about terrible WAGES and living conditions should advocate abolishing the federal reserve and the criminal inflationary policies of the government. With natural money circulating we will not have massive boom and bust cycles or out-of-control inflation that forces two or more breadwinners to seek income while abandoning the children to the care of the state schools or unsupervised homes. With stable prices and incomes from natural money (not paper money) Americans CAN afford to pick apples or build widgets till their heart is content and keep a decent standard of living while they are at it.

At the end of the day immigration is basically about employment, therefore only individual employers/companies should be in charge of hiring anyone they want - immigrant or local. The Feds will never know the appropriate number of immigrants to allow or deny from entry. Only individual companies in each individual community/city can allocate that number of workers efficiently. This efficient allocation will keep our economy running at it’s optimal level. Too many or too few immigrants allowed to join our economy will only hurt our productive capacity. It is IMPOSSIBLE for the Feds to every get that number right.

If there’s no work and no welfare then folks will just have to go home to their native country. If they come and add value to our economy (without committing theft or violence) then they deserve a right to stay.
-----------
Basically my suggestion for Emperor Obama is "stay the hell out of the way, abolish the fed, let the churches and non-profits handle welfare and let us decide our own immigration policy"

Too bad they didn't quiz me on how much spanglish I use. The American English dialect itself is a mash-up of words taken from Spanish, German, French, Latin, and other weird languages. Shit, even Spanish has words that came from English like "parqueo" meaning parking lot instead of saying "estacionamiento", both the same thing, "parqueo" has fewer syllables and it rolls off the tongue better. In all languages we tend to borrow from another if they can get our ideas out with minimal effort.

So when those racist Republicans cry about forcing English on immigrants just remind them that English 'aint as pure as the white man paint it to be. Just live and let live, preserve liberty and the rest 'gone sort itself out.
