He’s looking to Florida to put him back in the game. He is looking at a state rich in Latino voters to put him back on the map. So Rudy Giuliani has done a most logical thing. He has launched a series of Spanish-language TV commercials. That’s right, the same guy advocating that no one be allowed U.S. citizenship without demonstrated fluency in English. Ironic? Ai yi yi yi! Which illustrates the complexities of this hot potato immigration issue. It seems we live in a nation where it is alright for non-citizen Latinos to join the U.S. Marines and die for our country. But if you come across the border and take the jobs we don’t want to do, at wages we refuse to be paid; if you send your kids to our taxpayer-funded public schools; and if you come here speaking another language like our German, Polish, Swedish and Russian ancestors did; Then we get bent out of shape. Then, candidates start saying patently unamerican things like you can’t be a citizen unless you speak, read and write the Queen’s English. But, suddenly, reality sinks in; the hardliners come down from their high horses and become as pragmatic as a Texas restaurant owner or an Arizona homebuilder. These same tough-talking politicians go out and make themselves a Spanish-language TV commercial: Senor Giuliani es muy macho.

  1. It certainly is the season of political pandering. Nuevo once, nuevo once.

    By the way, I watched the Republican debate last night, I couldn’t tell if I was watching the debate or Dr. Strangelove. If it was Dr. Strangelove here are the parts:

    Brig. Gen. Jack D. Ripper- Mitt Romney
    Maj. T.J. “King” Kong (Slim Pickens)- Fred Thompson
    Gen. “Buck” Turgidson (George C. Scott)- John McCain
    President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers)- Mike Huckabee
    Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers)- Rudy Guliani

    Ron Paul, well I guess he is Stanley Kubrick. He understands how nutty these guys (both parties) really are and the reckless folly we are heading into. I especially hope that everyone listened to Paul’s schooling of the other canidates on economics. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take Paul’s advice and study Von Mises and Austrian economics. Your not going to understand what is going on unless you can understand the Austrian view of the business cycle and the causes of the Great Depression. We are near tough times here and the choice is between tough times and extremely tough times. The tough times will mean the government staying out of this and letting the market take care of it. The extremely tough times will happen of the government gets involved. There is no way for the government to avoid what they caused. Too bad only 8% of the Republican Party gets it.
