Human Trading - perhaps a great idea.

This was from Greg Gutfield's blog yesterday. This guy comes off like a douchebag a lot of the time, but he's usually funny and I like the points he makes at times.

"MONDAY'S GREGALOGUE: THE HUMAN TRADING SYSTEM
So yet another illegal alien has been found stowed away in the cargo area of a plane. He endured a hellish trip to get here, and will be returned to his heinous craphole of a country after being treated for dehydration.

Yeah, I know what he did was "illegal" and all that - but whenever I read about a dude pulling off something like this, I keep thinking an exception needs to be made. Whenever the amount of risk taken to come here far exceeds anything most Yankee chuckleheads would do to stay, then that risk taker deserves citizenship. I mean this guy risked his life so he could work as a cashier at Arby`s. Would Jon Cusack do the same?

Fact is, our country is crammed full with children who think they`re adults, and adults pretending to be children – all handed endless opportunities simply because they were born here. Millions of these Americans squander, mock and abuse the country that other folks would die to get into – and for this reason it`s time to enact a solution I've mentioned previously: a human trading system. Mind you: this is not human trafficking. It`s human trading. It`s different. There is no cash or sex involved (yet).

For example, I would gladly give up the entire Hulk Hogan brood, for this Ethiopian dude from the cargo hold. Or better, for every immigrant found in the wheel well of a jet, we forfeit an entire cast of the Real World or Charm School – sending them to whatever country that brave soul escaped from. Then we`d finally populate this great country with people who truly understand why it`s great, while getting rid of anyone who thinks Green Day lyrics mean something.

Of course, this kind of human trading is probably illegal - which is why we`d have to do it at night. I have a panel van and some GHB left over from the weekend."

Ha ha! Too bad its illegal. I kind of like the idea! lol

All joking aside, immigrants (legal or illegal) are typically hard workers. They are desperate to improve their economic situation and usually do not immediately take advantage of the system. Now give some of them a few years and they quickly figure out the freebies.

You don't see immigrants on the streets begging, do you? They're too busy working. Most everyone I see on the streets with a cardboard sign was born and raised here with access to everything America has to offer.

Like Fredrick Douglass said, "I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs." These are people who came from bad situations, and one day realized that their fate was in their hands -- so they risked all to come here with nothing. People who have that kind of conviction about being in charge of their own destiny generally aren't interested in sitting around waiting for someone else to take care of them.
