Glen Beck

Many times Liberals will say that you and I are brainwashed by talk show hosts. The failure of Liberal talk shows and networks, like Air America, to survive is attributable to this misunderstanding. What they miss is that we want to listen to people who confirm our feelings or at the very least expose us to new information that is consistent with that which we already know to be true. That, and no one likes to be told that they are stupid (Randi Rhodes - you catch more flies with honey than vinegar)

From time to time, I hear things on Glenn Beck and think "I wish I had said that". Sometimes I am proud to say that these are things that I have been saying or screaming for a while. Tonight is one of those. For a long time I have been saying that "Illegal aliens are the new slave class". That, and that fifty (or less) years from now we will pay the price for this slavery again. Like any slavery, this is not a good or moral thing.

And one more thing, The constant refrain that "these are jobs that Americans will not do" is wrong. These are things that Americans will not do for slave wages. True Capitalism is about contracts. The willing meeting of two parties. Slave labor distorts this contract. Not just for the slave, but for the person who must compete against the slave for his livelihood. This is true of the illegal immigrant and this is true of the Chinese manufactured products.

And why is it that the unions who are supposed to be for the worker are aiding and abetting the influx of this slave labor? It was the Democrats last time and it is they again who promote slavery.
