Response to my article on immigration
An editorial
By
Murdock Todd Cote (Doc)

First my article was not in any way meant as racist or bigoted, I just do not think the Immigration that Mr. Bush wanted is just or fair to the American Worker; given them an instant in and pardon for illegal entry does mean I do not think people should immigrate to the United States or get jobs and become productive citizen in the United States that’s fine with me. I could careless if they Central Asian, South and Central American; European South East Asia or china. I just do no think it is fair for them to cross a border and work for 5.15 per hour or less in illegal sweat shops. I am way for people escaping poverty for a new land and a second chance to find a new life their was nothing racist about my article and that it is interpitation of the article which is some cases offensive to some and informative but to me my article is simple truth that they do jobs that most wouldn’t touch, safety issues which have gotten many killed in accidents that in most osha would have stopped if they new about it, that why the unions did make a difference, now days there are some who have gotten a little greedy in their negotiations and out of hand with outsourcing manufacturing and technology that is Republican right wing extremist economics allowing this to happen and busting unions.

Jobs through out the United States are disappearing, labor jobs are nil in most of the United States. I do not feel pardons and illegals working in the United State are fair or right I never said anything racist or inhumane…….jobs, union’s lifestyle homes lost because factories closed and went south…went Asia. Hell even calling for tech support for my pc is a phone to Central Asia as well as MCI, even Mexico. How many Americans have lost hope in the American dream? How many have lost hope? And turned to dope, ice, heroine, crank, hopelessness and lost their homes…their families on the street in the gutters and in the tunnels. So if you took my article the wrong way well all I can say is I am sorry but I am not a racist, a dog or ignorant I am Warrior in a battle against racism, bigotry, hate and fear and mistrust. Government lies and betrayal and I have been told I sicken some I don’t pick fights I respond, as for my article on immigration and invasion I just feel amnesty is the right way enter the United States and a citizenship of green card. To this being America, we need to pick them up and return them with this promise that if they cross legally then fine but I was never racist or demeaning to anyone. It is the corporate plebian and royal class that has wrecked our economy but I just want to say sorry to all those who took offense and to rev john the man from Arizona well to each his own. I am not a racist, or bigot and I know what it is like to be looked down on like so much trash well I am not trash or am I ignorant as my cousin says. I just got life straight in my head and no now I am not stupid, ignorant but I am capable of love and capable of war. So it’s up to judge me for who I am now and who I use to be a shy now I am not and I am not a coward nor do I pick fights, as for article it’s up to you, it’s give and take or read and understand there was never any racism

The gift of Freedom is yours by right
But the home that we seek is not in a far off land
But within side of all of us
And if what we do to day be our destiny
Then so be it
But let history remember that as free men we chose to make it so
