Default Stephan Colbert testifies before Congress








I love Colbert. He's one of the few voices of sanity in this world. In his own little way.

...He's not funny.


I think it's pretty embarrassing that he did this in front of a serious tribunal of representatives. People like Kevin Costner, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael J. Fox, and many others have at least been able to conduct themselves with dignity. It's like he has some sort of identity problem.

As for his words on immigration, he acts like the illegals are legitimate immigrants. They aren't legitimate, they're illegal aliens stealing jobs from Americans, receiving social security, receiving education, receiving almost any possible pampering benefit we can give them, which is precisely why the problem is getting worse. If Colbert, and anyone else in the Dem party acknowledges this, and if the government gets rid of these self-impairing benefits for the illegals, we'll finally start to have some upper hand on the status of illegals entering the country, because once they enter, they'll be just as bad-off here as they were in Mexico, thus making legal immigration much more desirable to obtain.

Of course, if we did that, we'd be "offensive" and "uncaring to those poor families". God, I wish we weren't a country filled with p**sies who didn't care about the law.

Not to attack Woodsprite, but I disagree with the stance. Nothing personal.

Colbert is absolutely hilarious. Satire is one of the more effective ways to get a point across. Surely, he will bring a much wider audience to the issue than any other advocate.

Did you know Elmo testified before Congress in 2002?

As far as immigrants go, I have absolutely no problem with them being here, even if that costs me tax money. Considering how much of my tax money goes to wars, government waste, faulty education systems, the mayor's daughter's wedding, the governor's trip to Aruba and his prostitutes...heaven forbid if a small fraction of my money went to help other people, whether they are supposed to be here or not.

Yes, they are poor families who have no voice and sometimes no choice but to come to America, earn crappy salaries so they can feed their children.

I hope you're not referring to the immigrants. They are not p**sies. They work all day braking their back just to scrape by.

As far as jobs go, immigrants aren't stealing jobs. China is stealing jobs. Although, that's not stealing. China offers better and cheaper labor. Same with Mexican workers. So don't blame immigrants, that's capitalism.

On a final note, with all the problems out there, I find no surprise that this is one of today's top stories. I honestly don't think this has anything to do with money, but everything to do with hispanic people entering the conservative south.

Exactly the response I expected.


Mmmmm, the sweet tears.


I bet you're really pissed off at Stewart's "Rally to restore sanity". God I wish I could attend it. Too far. : /

Caveman - It's just another wedge issue. Welcome to election season. Every two years politicians have to look for a new boogeyman to milk for votes. This time around it's Mexicans and Muslims.
