Ya know... if you get caught shop lifting a $10 cell phone case at Wally World, the judge is gonna look at your record, shake his head, give you a little probation, fine, and community service, and you are ALWAYS, until the end of time, going to have a blemish on your record for a $10 cell phone case.
However... if you go before the judge, and the prosecutor says, "Your Honor, I have security tapes from the staff at Wally World, and this gentleman has taken a $10 cell phone case every day for the last 15 years!", the judge probably isn't going to suspend your sentence, you are going to get one heckuva fine, you are going to do jail time, and you are ALWAYS going to have a mark on your record, and be duly noted as a repeat offender.
And... if said security tapes depict you, and your wife, and your children all taking a $10 cell phone case, every day for 10 - 15 years, you, your wife, and your children are all going to have a mark on your record for shoplifting, you're all going to do jail time, you're all going to be fined, and be noted as repeat offenders, and your children will taken from you, and you and your wife will also be charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors, and lord only knows what else.
So WHY, when these people cross the border illegally, and remain here breaking the law for years, with their wives, and their children, and use fake identities, and fail to pay taxes, and drive without drivers licenses and insurance, and whatever else... EVERY DAY FOR YEARS... does our dammm government think they should just throw their hands in the air, and say "Oh... We should grant them all amnesty!"
Why don't we just throw ALL the laws away, and say the he!! with it, there are too many law breakers to try and round them all up, we gotta give them all amnesty!!
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm about fed up with the utter stupidity being propogated in Washington, DC. How do these people get elected when they express so little common sense??
