Doesn't the President Have Speech Writers?
Published on June 15, 2007 By greywar In Current Events

     Paging Ben Stein... the President desperately needs someone to vet statements like this:

 


"Mr. Bush said the $4.4 billion would “come from the fines and penalties that we collect from those who have come to our country illegally” and apply for legal status." -NYT


     Really? Thats truly amazing. I wonder how it is that Arnold Kling never stumbled across the branch of economics known as "Magic". After Al Gore gets his Nobel maybe G.W. should get the prize in Economics? 

     In other news taxes will no longer be neccessary to pay for prisons since criminals will pay all the expenses for us with their heretofore undisclosed alchemistic skills. The Felons-to-Gold program will be almost as awesome as the Illegals-to-BorderAgents program will be!

     I can't wait for my first budget surplus check from all this hermetic revenue! I think I'll use it to get that Mastiff puppy I always wanted or maybe a Unicorn! Sweet.

The fines and penalties will be barely enough to pay for the additional staff to track all these people.

It will be more than enough when you do the math using the Land-of-make-believe calculation.
