Idaho Senator Craig loses
Illegal Immigration Amnesty bill...
Does Craig support prison inmates picking Idaho crops?

Is the government using prisoners as
indentured servants to hide Congress' and the Administration's
hyper-inflation of the U.S. dollar?
Boise, ID – As we have stated over and over
in our FM Duck commentaries, the illegal immigration problem is not about a
shortage of American labor. It is an economic problem about hyper
inflation of the U.S. dollar and the socialist policies of America and
Mexico is a grossly corrupt
socialist welfare state. The U.S. is less corrupt but still a welfare
state. Mexicans are illegally streaming across the southern border to
escape socialist Mexico. American politicians have hyper inflated the
U.S. dollar to the point that if American labor picked crops at the going American labor rate, the U.S. population would
revolt against their government at the resulting food prices in the
In order to forestall this
disclosure to the American people that their deficit dollar is
becoming worthless, the Bush Administration and Congress are doing nothing
about illegal immigration by pretending that America needs amnesty for our
ha-ha "guest workers" and that there is a shortage of American labor. But the
day of reckoning will soon be upon us. It will place such a huge financial burden on American
citizens, from a $2-$3 trillion un-funded Social Security increase, to Pub Ed
and Medicare/Medicaid increases, to increased crime and cost to the judicial system, that by 2020 or sooner we will
be financially bankrupt.
Idaho's Senator Larry Craig,
who voted for President Bush's Amnesty program and lost, is now pushing for
an Ag Jobs bill to purportedly save Idaho's agricultural industry.
Governmental intervention into the free market, bringing home the pork, and
earmarking are not new to Sen. Craig. He, in fact, has co-authored
several articles claiming that it is a Congressman's duty to bring home the pork to
his constituents. It seems that socialism, or fascism, which used to
hide in the closet, defined as
governmental intervention into what would otherwise be a free market, is now
regarded by our Congressboobs as de jure. The Welfare State mentality
has now taken over, even in tiny Idaho.
Now the spud growers are
resorting to hiring prison inmates to pick Idaho's crops. This is a
troubling situation and brings up many legal questions. Is it
Constitutional to allow one company to hire prisoners at cheap labor rates
to compete against free market labor at other companies?
What's the difference between hiring illegal immigrants who have broken the
immigration law but are not in prison, and hiring or forcing prisoners to
pick fruit for peanuts? (Wouldn't that be a hoot: illegal immigrants
in prison who end up picking crops for even lower rates than "free" illegals?)
Do prisons pay free market or minimum wages? Will this encourage the
government to imprison more people for victimless crime laws (such as minor
drug abuses) to increase the number of inmates picking crops?
Is this a form of slavery or indentured
servitude because prisoners are "encouraged" to ha-ha "volunteer" to
pick crops by the warden or prison guards? Does Senator Craig support
prison inmates picking Idaho crops?
The big question remains: Is the government using
prisoners as indentured servants to hide Congress' and the Administration's
hyper-inflation of the U.S. dollar?
If it was only about
economics, all the good Senator from Idaho would have to do is absolutely
nothing. Laissez-faire. Just like with all other commodities and
services, free market demand would automatically raise the price to pick
potatoes to whatever supply the consumer would pay. But then, that's
exactly the problem, isn't it? That's what the politicians don't want
you to know. We don't have a shortage of potatoes or American labor.
We have an over-supply of inflated U.S. dollars. And they don't want
you to revolt at the super market. (Note that the government's current
Consumer Price Index, CPI, has removed food, energy and all energy related
prices, housing, rental, and, hey, what's left in the CPI, air? No
wonder the official CPI is so low, they stripped everything out.)
Once again, the illegal
immigration problem is not about a shortage of American labor. Follow
the money. Just like the War in Iraq, it is more about the
manipulation of our paper dollar by central bankers and Big Brother's
manufactured terrorism to protect OPEC Petro-Dollars than who should be picking America's crops. And
now we're bordering on re-implementing slavery with prisoners picking crops? Yee-haa, whip, snap,
crack, pick that cotton, you jailbirds. -- FM Duck
