Whatever Happened to "Sí se puede?”

Satire (?) by John W. Lillpop

Remember the days when the streets of Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, and LA were taken over by hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens marching and, of all things, DEMANDING that they be given citizenship?

Illegals were supported by moon bats who argued that these impoverished peasants risked life and limb to travel across a hot, inhospitable desert just to come to America and clean our toilets, mop our floors, mow our lawns, and wash our cars!

For such uncommon acts of sacrifice, we the people were expected to receive the millions of invaders with open arms, and, more importantly, open wallets.

Illegal aliens cost American taxpayers more than $100 billion a year.

Advocates for illegals always fail to point out that invaders have a cultural tendency to drive while drunk much of the time, to steal public services to which they are not entitled, to commit heinous crimes, to speak a foreign language, and generally muck up the greatest nation on earth.

But back to Sí se puede, the battle cry for those poor, lost souls stashed away in the shadows, coming out only to march and riot on the 5th of May and other non-American holidays when sufficient beer is available.

Apparently, Sí se puede is no longer an operative term among the grape pickers and bottle washers who have invaded our land.

For example, according to reports, only 50,000 illegal aliens took to the streets in Los Angeles to ring in May Day in 2010.

Just 50,000? This was supposed to be “THE” big weekend for illegal aliens to march and demand.

Just 50,000? Good heavens, at any given moment, there are more than 50,000 illegal aliens in LA hospitals!

In labor, no less!

The City of San Francisco has more than 50,000 illegal aliens on the city payroll!

And ding bat Mayor Newsom married more than 50,000 gay illegal aliens on the steps of City Hall in 2004, for gosh sake.

On any given afternoon, there are more than 50,000 drunken illegal aliens drag racing through downtown Los Angeles, for Pedro's sake.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villagarosa was very upset by the low turnout and demanded a federal investigation.

The rankled mayor said, "I want to run for governor of California some day, but I will need a lot more support from the illegal alien community. This smells like a poll tax or other voter suppression tactic used by unsavory southerners."

"I want the federal government to answer some basic questions. Why were the six million known illegal aliens in Los Angeles not on the streets on May Day?

“Did the unconstitutional and Nazi-like SB 1070 law in Arizona intimidate Latinos and deprive them of their 1st Amendment rights?"

"I will not tolerate disenfranchisement of Latinos just because they are here illegally and are not eligible to vote.

Asked at White House press conference to comment on the low turnout, President Obama tried to reassure Mayor Villagarosa by saying, "Well, Antonio has got to learn patience when dealing with edgy illegal aliens. After years of dealing with these folks, I know that they are moody and tough to predict.

"But in the end, hand out the goodies and benefits, and they will come. And do it often enough, and they will vote!"

Well said, Mr. President! Good to know that the truth DOES make its way past your lips on the very odd occasion!
