Interesting Perspective

Our goals here at B.S.H.Q. are pretty simple, inform and entertain, but from time to time you will find some political stuff mixed in. With everything going on these days it's almost impossible to avoid. I will promise you that we will never get to heavy! This has been floating out there for a while but I thought it was pretty interesting without being to brutal.

A lady wrote a letter in the editorials that explains things better than all the crap you hear on TV or the radio. Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders and make it harder to sneak into this country:

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests. Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors; I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hardworking and honest (except for when I broke into your house)."

According to some, not only must you let me stay, you must add me to your family's insurance plan, educate my kids, and provide other benefits to me and to my family (my husband will do your yard work because he too is hardworking and honest, except for that breaking in part). If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my right to be there.

It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm hardworking and honest, um, except for well, you know. And what a deal it is for me!! I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of selfishness, prejudice and being an anti-housebreaker.

Oh yeah, and I want you to learn my language so you can communicate with me.
