A couple of posts on immigration have brought out a slew of comments that require a response.
The post of Ron Paul's essay, Trump is All Wrong on the Immigration Problem, drew this comment from Munch:
The government preventing illegals from being hired is one of the few times I agree with a government intervention. It allows a clear rule of law that can be applied fairly in a way everyone can understand in advance what is prohibited, no legal residency no work. It is a humane way of keeping out illegals, with no work here it stops them at the incentive level before they enter. If you allowed anyone to enter and work but then forcibly deported those who had no right to, you have a bad situation of police action against unwilling people.
Yes, it is a clear rule of law but has nothing to do with free markets. If a businessman wants to hire someone from another country and someone else is willing to rent such a person an apartment, how is this any of your business unless you are a totalitarian?
At the post, Have You Ever Heard Of Joe Sutter? You Should.
Well this post has changed my mind.
Let the Somalis and Sudanese pour in !
Well, in a society based on liberty no one would say you have to live or associate with Somalis, but do you want to make a rule that becasue you don't want to associate with them no one else in the United States can? You are a totalitarian!
Munch is back at this post:
My God, if he had developed his jet in Poland or Moscow or London or France, the world would have never seen his invention.
Post about the undocumented Mexican immigrant contribution to aerospace engineering. I'll wait. Next the undocumented mexican immigrant contribution to computer science, social media, investment banking, scientific research . . .Do you seriously think a Boeing 747-type plane would have been developed in Poland, Moscow or London just because Sutter lived there?
You have no clue as to the importance of capital and the proper mixing of capital and labor.
And why does anyone need to post about the undocumented Mexicans who are aerospace engineers, bankers, in social media, etc.? Like Trump do you have a central planning mentality where you think you know what kind of immigrants should come to this country?
