We Don' need no steenking green card!

Old depiction of a Mexican criminal:

"The Bandito", as portrayed in the Humphrey Bogart Movie.,
"The Treasure of Sierra Madre"

The Bandito is dirty and unkempt, usually displaying an unshaven face, missing teeth, perhaps a gold tooth, and disheveled, oily hair. The face is scared and scowling to complete the easily recognizable stereotype. He is vicious, cruel, treacherous, shifty, and dishonest; psychologically he is irrational, overly emotional, and quick to resort to violence. His inability to speak English or his English with a very heavy Spanish accent is Hollywood's way of signaling his feeble intellect, a lack of brainpower that makes it impossible for him to plan or strategize successfully.

The bandito lives on in American film as Latino drug runners, Puerto Rican toughs in New York, and East LA homeboy gang-bangers.

No no no.....

Today's Mexican bandit is the typical illegal described below, and has done far more damage to the United States than any stereotype character Hollywood could ever dream up.

The True Tale Of Joe and Jose:

You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal". Both families
have two parents, two children, and live in the USA .
Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.
Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number,
and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".
Ready? Now pay attention...
Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year.
Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has
Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or
$31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for
his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now
has $24,031.00.
Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and
local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has
Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or
welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per
year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.
Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps
and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe
Legal now has $9,631.00.
Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose

Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal

Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has
Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.
Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities,
gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.
Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after
Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe
Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get
a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal's children have an after
school ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home.
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services,
but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
Do you get it, now?

Thanks to Galt-in the box for this little jewel. 

One other thought:

When Jose's buddy Pedro gets across the border, he will join Jose on that construction job and replace Joe.

And what about Joe?

He just lost his job. He'll soon lose his home, all his assets and go bankrupt. He, his wife and two kids will have to survive on the kindness of friends and relatives... if any.

And Pedro? He will get all the perks Jose gets, and will soon be driving around in his brand new Ford F350 heavy-duty pickup truck, no license or insurance. You can do that when you pay cash.

Maybe I should really work on my tan, learn to speak Spanish and try to pass myself off as an illegal Jose, "you know what I'm saying?"

And we have the Roman Catholic CULT that infests most of our country's government & education system to thank for it.
