    A Texas State Legislator,Debbie Riddle(teabgger) has proposed legislation that criminalizes undocumented aliens UNLESS THEY'RE CUTTING YOUR LAWN.

    The [Texas House] bill would make hiring an "unauthorized alien" a crime punishable by up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine, unless that is, they are hired to do household chores. Yes, under the House Bill 2012 introduced by a tea party favorite state Rep. Debbie Riddle -- who's been saying for some time that she'd like to see Texas institute an Arizona-style immigration law -- hiring an undocumented maid, caretaker, lawnworker or any type of houseworker would be allowed. Why? As Texas state Rep. Aaron Pena, also a Republican, told CNN, without the exemption, "a large segment of the Texas population" would wind up in prison if the bill became law.

    So it's ok to have illegals as servants
    But jail them if they try to rise above their station, is that it?

    She is also famous for having "one state under god" bill passed a while back. She owns a horse farm up in the north part of town/county this tells me more than likely there are a few illegals probably working there. Texas has plenty of wacko politicians to go around on both the national, state and local levels.

    Ignorance is bliss, after all!

    BTW, flamer80...You complain about others not addressing the topic of a thread.

    Do you see your blatant hypocrisy here?

    Naah...I didn't think so.

    Find that missing apostrophe key yet? eBay, maybe?

    Hey...Someone should have his own thread! "Adventures in DOUCHbaggery!"
