From 05 JUN 2006 Examiner:
Washington - Recalling his favorite Reagan observation that America is a nation that has a government, not a government that has a nation, columnist Mark Steyn applies a marvelously descriptive term for the current state of the U.S. government as reflected in the outrage of House Speaker Dennis Hastert and other GOP congressional leaders over the FBI search of Democratic Rep. William Jefferson’s official office. Steyn’s term is “Incumbistan.” We suggest the Incumbistan Complex applies throughout the federal government.Ah, the true Nature of what America is becoming is foreshadowed! For a little over a year later on 15 JUN 2007 at The Corner at NRO we get this:
Vacant Lott [Mark Steyn]And indeed it is!
Andrew, I have no serious expectations of Senators these days, but I would like them at the very least to try and sound a little less like the plump complacent emirs of the one-party-state of Incumbistan. Trent Lott fails even that test.
Welcome to the one-party-state of Incumbistan and its zero-party-vassal of Electistan.
We hear a lot, out here in Electistan, the place where American voters are, from the political and ideological Elites from Incumbistan. That latter is centered in Washington, DC and doesn't stretch much out beyond the lobbying firms and monied interests that suckle up to the Emirs of Incumbistan, named Senators and Representatives. This lovely Imperial Government has pontificated much and often about how lazy and worthless Electistanians are and that they are just not going to do some jobs because they are just too demeaning.
That we heard from one of the Elder Emirs of Incumbistan, John McCain from the Emirate of Arizonia:
[...]But he took more questions, including a pointed one on his immigration plan.Yes, the people of Electistan in the Emirate of Arizonia were TOLD that they wouldn't take jobs at a wage rate that was HIGH, even when individuals of Arizonia said they WOULD take them! Yes the high Elder Emir of Arizonia does know his own population far, far better than THEY DO in regards to work ethic and what is seen as a good job!
McCain responded by saying immigrants were taking jobs nobody else wanted. He offered anybody in the crowd $50 an hour to pick lettuce in Arizona.
Shouts of protest rose from the crowd, with some accepting McCain’s job offer.
“I’ll take it!” one man shouted.
McCain insisted none of them would do such menial labor for a complete season. “You can’t do it, my friends.”
Some in the crowd said they didn’t appreciate McCain questioning their work ethic.
And last year we heard from Ken Mehlman, head of the Republicarian Faction of Incumbistan on just what was so good about helping illegal aliens:
Part of securing those borders, though, is recognizing that we have a reason for a lot of this illegal immigration today and that is a disconnect between supply and demand. There is a big demand for workers and the supply, available in this country, doesn't meet that demand.Yes, the National Inumbistanian Police are so effective at actually stopping the trafficking of illegal drugs and narcotics TODAY that they will be JUST AS EFFECTIVE tomorrow at stopping the trafficking of human beings, plus international gangs like MS-13, which is already under their purview for Electistan. Plus we now hear that the poor underclass of Electistan is unable to be trained to do tech worker jobs, carpentry jobs and unwilling to do other jobs! The Republicarians sure do know the Electistanians so well!
So we need to have a system, in the future, that says: We're going to figure out how to meet our economic [needs] without encouraging illegal immigration.
It seems to me the same tools we're using to keep out drug dealers and terrorists and criminals ought to welcome in tech workers and carpenters and workers willing to do the jobs that Americans are unwilling to do.
Such is the efficiency of the National Incumbistanian Police that they have ENDED the DRUG WAR SUCCESSFULLY with regards to shipping of illegal drugs to Electistan! They have also secured the Electistanians from all sorts of foreign criminal elements in the form of gangs, black market goods dealers and even in such things as trafficking of humans from Nations on terrorist watch lists that there is absolutely, positively no worries that this absolutely secure system in place today can handle a work load 10 times its current size. Plus they have shut down all forms of money laundering that utilizes untraceable contacts, remote exchange/purchase agreements and are all person-to-person networks based on ethnic communities. The ability of the NIPs to disguise themselves perfectly and be accepted into even the most vile of criminal operations is manifest by how safe Electistan is TODAY. Yes, the NIPs are the most efficient police force on the planet that they can do this for Electistanians! We are PERFECTLY SAFE from those things today!
With respect to the illegal immigrants that are here now what do I think we should do?Yes, even when they don't know who the criminals are or where they are, we know that they have tracked them down and found them even when they can't do that! I think this may be a case of needing to augment the NIPs with illegal aliens so that they can do the jobs that the Incumbistanian Police cannot do. Those are such high assurances from Mr. Mehlman!
What I think we should do are several things. First of all we need to uphold the rule of law. It would be very wrong and inappropriate if we were to say there were no consequences if there were just a blanket amnesty,
Second of all we've got to figure out who among this population is a threat, and who among them is not a threat. I think the fact that there may be criminals among the illegal immigrants we've got to figure out who they are.
And Mr. Mehlman is so correct that poor, underclass Electistanians cannot be taught how to use a hammer, a hand saw, and drive nails with the correct tool! All forms of carpentry are UNKNOWN in Electistan and we are unable to TEACH anyone to do those jobs, including the unemployed Citizens of Electistan and the children of Electistanians. No one can be taught how to use a soldering iron nor how to trace out an electrical circuit as that knowledge has been lost, forever, in Electistan. In truth Electistanians are unwilling to do any form of manual labor AT ALL and prefer a servant underclass to work for us just like is done in Saudi Arabia. It is so good that they have taught us HOW to be as indolent as THEY ARE that we need a foreign servant class to do such things for us.
Of course we do take time to disabuse ourselves that doing such jobs has social value and that such work is needed in Electistan. So, to help us out, we have an entire business class to help ensure that Electistanians cannot even FIND such work:
And our goal is clearly not to find a qualified and interested U.S. worker. And you know in a sense that sounds funny, but it's what we're trying to do here. We are complying with the law fully, but ah, our objective is to get this person a green card, and get through the labor certification process. So certainly we are not going to try to find a place [at which to advertise the job] where the applicants are the most numerous. We're going to try to find a place where we can comply with the law, and hoping, and likely, not to find qualified and interested worker applicants.Ah, praises be showered upon such businesses that ascertain what Electistanians will not do and ensure that no Electistanians can be found to do those jobs! They have even so figured out that looking for where Electistanians may be trained for such work is the best place not to look for those that would be QUALIFIED to do these jobs Electistanians will not do. The most progressive of Republicarian Emirates, that of Californicalia, has found that even running their own political party is beyond them and they now bring in foreigners to lead their party:
The California Republican Party has decided no American is qualified to take one of its most crucial positions -- state deputy political director -- and has hired a Canadian for the job through a coveted H-1B visa, a program favored by Silicon Valley tech firms that is under fire for displacing skilled American workers.Extreme and high praises for how WELL the Republicarians have LEARNED from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and going one step farther so as to farm out important decision making to foreigners as that is BEYOND the Republicarians of Californicalia. It is good that they are learning from their Elder Emirs, like Emir McCain of Arizonia, that there are, indeed, jobs that Electistanians will not do at ANY PRICE.
But the party nationally has fought efforts to increase immigration, calling during the recent debate in Congress for much tighter border security and resisting efforts to providing a path to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants now in the country.
The hiring of two immigrants at top Republican Party posts has handed ammunition to critics who note that many Republicans have spoken critically about the impacts of waves of Mexican immigrants.
And one of the supporters of such illegal aliens is from the Democratolite party of Incumbistan, who is the Great Elder Emir from Taxechussets, Edward Kennedy. He has, indeed, pointed out that it would cost far too much to send illegal aliens home:
"There are 12 million undocumented workers here now," Kennedy said. "What are we going to do with them?"This is an assured bank breaking proposition for the Emirate of Incumbistan which knows now little it can afford for such luxuries as enforcing the laws of the Nation. Of course the Great Elder Emir Kennedy has priorities for spending and that can be seen by his grand wisdom in the swinola he was able to get into the budget just a few weeks after pronouncing it would be too costly to deport illegal aliens:
Kennedy said most illegal immigrants are law-abiding and hard-working and are drawn to America by employers eager to hire them. "But I hold no brief for those who violate the law," said Kennedy, who noted that deporting illegal immigrants would cost $240 million.
An amendment by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), approved 53 to 46 yesterday, would add $289 million to compensate recipients of an experimental flu vaccine, in the event of an adverse reaction.Yes, this was necessary pork stuffing to the budget because those that volunteer for an experimental flu vaccine are far more important than actually enforcing the laws of the Nation. Perhaps we can now get some illegal aliens to do *that* for us so that no more money need be spent on reimbursing citizens for volunteering to help their Nation. Other pork is, of course, stuffed into the expansionary budget of the Dept. of Agriculture where billions are handed out annually to farmers to support farming, subsidize crops, and even pay farmers to not farm, which is, of course, paying Americans not to do the job they want to do. Luckily in the top 20 we can see this in action from 2003-2005 and find some of the best supported agricultural businesses in the realm of Electistan. Yes, those farmers that own farms in far off parts of Electistan are not to be thought of as 'itinerant farmers' or 'absentee landlords' but good Electistanians just no longer willing to live where the work is actually done so that they do not have to do the work involved.
And it is far and well away known that mere citizens of Electistan have problems actually carrying around any sort of identification, and so the Grand Vizier Harry Reid ensured that all 'undocumented Americans' really should be citizens, because they are just as lazy as those already living here to carry any form of identification with them. Indeed, that is a growing problem where only terrorists can actually bother to carry documents with them so a to get proper truck rental for performing their explosive ordinance delivery service. That would be a tell tale way to find them to be sure, but the NIPs don't bother on that as checking documents is a job they cannot do, either.
Yes, it is such a grand thing that Incumbistan is becoming more and more like Saudi Arabia.
I am sure that the great oil of rejoicing will follow that trend, so we can have the oil that no one can be bothered to get here in Electistan.
Ah, we already do that, too! So way ahead of the curve are these Emirs of Incumbistan!
