Dear Editor:
I agree with Dr. Baer's letter when he says, "Prohibition today denies unskilled Mexican workers access to this country and to the jobs that need fulfillment. The prohibition does not work." Therefore, I propose a solution. Allow all Mexicans to come to the US to seek employment, without restriction, because they are nice, hardworking people who deserve a break that their own government has historically denied them. After all, our own President has said, "When we find a willing employer and a willing worker, we ought to match the two." Heck, I'm willing, anyone out there in Mexico willing to employ me? I don't speak Spanish, but I've got a strong back and I'll work cheap. And I agree with Dr. Baer that "Prohibition today denies unskilled Mexican workers access to this country and to the jobs that need fulfillment." And that's a shame, unskilled Mexican workers should be allowed access to this country. The citizens of the USA really should wake up and allow all Mexicans who have the desire to escape the abject poverty to which their own government has relegated them, to simply come up North and work. And why not? There seem to be plenty of jobs for them wherever they go, and lord knows they are everywhere. It is only Americans, who since President Bush took office, who are becoming unemployed at an alarming rate and everyone knows that Americans don't want those jobs anyway. I see no problem with allowing anyone who wants to work in the US to do so because, law or not, as Dr. Baer says, "Prohibition does not work.", and as he further says, "The patrons of the Speakeasies did not consider themselves violating the law (i.e. as being criminals). They saw a law that did not work." Let's face it, in this country of rugged individualists, many laws don't work, or at least don't work for me, and so any law that does not work for me, and my friends (on either side of the border) should be abolished. So, this afternoon, I am going to make a list of all the laws I don't like, the laws that don't work for me. And starting tomorrow, I am going to violate all the laws that prohibit me from doing what I like to do. I won't feel like a criminal when I violate these laws, because these laws don't work anyway or are mandates of law that are clearly wrong, to me. I expect that many Americans will not agree with me, but they will fight to the death to protect my right to say this, because that's the American Way. But I wonder if they will they fight to the death for me to save me from punishment if I violate the laws about which I speak? Or can I only speak, but not act? Hey, and while we are at it, I don't think much of that freedom of speech stuff either, Lenny Bruce be hanged, too many people get away with saying things I don't like or agree with. Abolish it. And the right to be free from search and seizure, why do we need that? If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear, right?
