The Lyrics

I don't know how this can rate as funny, it's pretty much dead serious, but here goes...
We had better think about the days to come
Population... explosion run away
And I wonder about the land we'll leave them if
We let corporations win the day

Mass immigration, mass immigration
Our grandkids will pay
And their kids will see 900 million

Bush will tell you... it's necessary to fill labor needs
Kerry... might tell you the same thing
But I, I'm not a shill for coporate greed
And I've been thinkin' about the Third World I have seen

Mass immigration, mass immigration
Our grandkids will pay
And their kids will see 900 million

And tomorrow... what will hold it together?
I'm no prophet, but I know nature's way
Culture rift, the melting pot a memory
Elites don't care, so plain folks must have their say

Plain folks must have their say
Elites don't care, so plain folks must have their say
Plain folks must have their say
Plain folks must have their say
Plain folks must have their say
Plain folks must have their say

Mac, you bring up an important issue. Illegal immigration is a problem, but I'm not sure that I agree with your primary implication. Is it corporate greed to try to provide affordable products to consumers? Is it corporate greed to try to provide a small return on investment to shareholders (which includes most of the country in one form or another)? I really don't think so, but even if it is, I still take corporate greed over political over-regulation, waste and inefficiency.

Well John, I'm not a pinko, lefty, "corporations are evil" type. But on the issue of immigration, I think it is clear that the interests of business owners conflict with those of ordinary folks. Businesses just want the lowest priced labor they can find. They don't care how this effects workers, or how mass immigration effects taxpayers, and society as a whole.
