Help! How to update the Statue of Liberty for the era of illegal immigration?



A confused woman scaled the Statute of Liberty to protest the detention of illegal aliens. Well, she almost scaled it. She climbed to the base of the statue and then got tired and decided to take a small siesta there, not great optics for advocates who claim that illegal aliens are workers who come here to tirelessly pick our grapes and lettuce!

The woman, an immigrant (legal? illegal? That distinction is no longer made) named Therese Patricia Okoumou from the unaptly named Democratic Republic of Congo, seems to make a successful living suing people for being racists, something that's harder to do in Africa. Unfortunately, Ms. Okoumou seems unaware of the political irony of her historically histrionic almost-climb.

For the Statue of Liberty celebrates legal immigration, people who come to our shores in an orderly manner, get interviewed, examined, screened, and then let America decide who is best to let into our country, and who is not. The process that Okoumou was advocating for is a different one entirely where people from other countries decide whether they come to America, and they come totally without screening of any kind--they can be criminals, they can be uneducated, they can be people who want to live on the US taxpayer, they can be very ill, they can have bedbugs and so on.

In light of that, it is politically tone deaf to use the Statue of Liberty, the symbol of legal immigration, for this kind of protest, at least not unless the statue is updated. In true Hollywood fashion I think the Statue of Liberty should be "rebooted" to reflect the times:

1) It should be brown, not green. Liberals remind us constantly that illegal immigrants are mostly "brown", which is why we are supposedly opposed to them.

2) Lady Liberty should hold a voter registration card in one hand and an Obama phone in the other. In many states like California illegal aliens are automatically registered to vote when they get their drivers' licenses, and there are many documented cases of illegals voting in elections, despite what liberals say. As for the Obama phone, that can be a symbol for all the welfare benefits illegals can immediately reap upon arrival.

3) A backpack full of narcotics. Drug gangs which smuggle illegals into the country commonly use the illegals to ferry their narcotics. Two for the price of one, eh?

4) Plaque written in Spanish. The statue's plaque should be written in Spanish, our soon to be new national language. Did you catch the article in today's WaPo celebrating the fact that Spanish is the primary language in "all-American" McAllen, Texas?

5) Lady Liberty should be wearing a donkey pin, to symbolize all the voters the Democrats are importing.

6) Lady Liberty should be flanked by a dozen smaller statues, linked by chains, to reflect the wonders of chain migration.

7) The statue should be moved to the border with Mexico and the torch should be rigged to light up in the absence of border agents.

What other changes do you think should be made to the Statue of Liberty to make it more socially relevant for our time?

Will John McCain's selfishness torpedo Trump's Supreme Court nominee?


Republicans theoretically have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, but in practice it has been 50-49, since John McCain has left the Senate due to his brain cancer and shows no signs of returning. This makes it difficult for the Senate to pass legislation, of course, but since the Senate needs 60 votes for most matters, McCain's absence is not critical.

Liberals say the First Amendment is dangerous and needs to be curtailed


Liberals have decided they no longer like the First Amendment.

Therefore, liberals want to shut the First Amendment down.

Libs demand more than $20 an hour delivering packages


How much is unskilled labor worth? For liberals, you might think the answer is an astronomical $15 an hour, the minimum wage many states have set, destroying jobs that cannot provide that much value. But for libs, $15 an hour is just the starting point. The Atlantic wrote a sob story about someone who took a part time job delivering packages for Amazon for $18 an hour (which would eventually go up to $25). Her anger, and indignation, explains what is wrong about the liberal entitlement mentality.

Not a day goes by without some headline about the suffering of illegal alien kids, 99% of whom are eating and living better than they ever have in their lives, courtesy of the US taxpayer.

White town split into three parts to give American Indians control


The PBS NewsHour was excited to report about the political situation in San Juan County, Utah. The NewsHour claimed that the County had been gerrymandered so that the American Indians were relegated to only one of three county supervisor seats. And it is true that the American Indians are a majority of the population of the county. One district had 93% American Indians while the other two had 30% each.
