“The Illegal Immigrants, As You Call Them”

…will soon find it more difficult to get Oregon driver’s licenses without proving they are in the country legally, if an executive order of Democratic Governer Ted Kulongoski goes through.

Naturally there are people who don’t want to see it implemented. After all, without valid licenses, how can these people who “carry the country on their shoulders” keep carrying it?

The people who indulge in this kind of rhetoric have, as somebody said, more nerve than a bum tooth. Go ahead, Gov. Kulongoski.


  1. During my interview in Hibbing, MN, I asked about Spanish programs and illegals. One guy laughed and said, “The closest thing we have to an illegal immigrant here are Canadians who get lost while ice fishing.”

    Not really up to the seriousness of the issue, but funny…

  2. Heh. Ace has a whole running gag about “Scandis” that makes fun of the “racism” Republicans supposedly feel towards illegal immigrants. Ice fishing is included.
