Oscar: Whats a DREAM Act, MacIntosh?
MacIntosh: Lady Gaga and Groucho Marx playing Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton. Why do you ask?
Oscar: Theys wouldn’t even allow a vote in the Senate for the DREAM Act.
MacIntosh: Oh THAT dream act…its a law that would provide a path to citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants.
Oscar: Howse could that be bad?
MacIntosh: Opponents say its amnesty.
Oscar: Amnesty for being somebody’s kid?
MacIntosh: Yep. When they came here with their parents they were breaking the law.
Oscar: What were they supporsed to do so theys would not need amnesty.
MacIntosh: When they got to the border they were supposed to say “Mom, Dad, I don’t like the looks of this. You can go ahead if you must but I’m heading back to Juarez where I intend to live my infant years as a legal citizen.”
Oscar: But theys was fraidy cat little babies, huh MacIntosh?
MacIntosh: Yep. The Republicans killed the bill.
Oscar: Cuz it was written by the Democrats?
MacIntosh: Actually, most of the major provisions were co-written by Orrin Hatch and John McCain, Republican Senators along with Dick Durbin a Democrat.
Oscar: So at least they voted for it?
MacIntosh: McCain voted against….Hatch didn’t even show up to vote.
Oscar: Sos they were for it before they was against it.
MacIntosh: They realized the law had some loopholes.
Oscar: Likes what?
MacIntosh: Like irrational xenophobic racist rage in their base. But the killer was they had inserted a clause that said participants had to be of good moral character.
Oscar: Yikes….children of good moral character might believe in feedin’ the hungries and healin’ the sicks.
Oscar: If theys have good moral character they might thinks its wrong to lie your ways into an immoral war and use drones to kill innocent ladies and kids.
Oscar: If theys have good moral character they would thinks it a bad thing to torture peoples.
MacIntosh: Exactly….no way the Republicans were gonna let children like THAT become citizens.
Oscar: No way hoe-zay.
