*which has nothing to do at all with artsy stuff but mainly my rage*
okay so when Romney said that thing about illegal immigrants was when I really blew my top
I mean, first of all, who the hell pick the food and vegetables that end up on your dinner table? Who bends over for hours at a time, crouched in the same back-breaking position, face and hands exposed to cancerous pesticides, to put the produce in the aisles of your supermarket? Who do you hire to clean your bathrooms, the hotels, your mansions, and who do you pay less than minimum wage to do so? Who is silenced by society; who do you see out in the streets, out by the train station, just waiting for work? Who can't speak up for themselves because they don't know how to speak English, and who is facing prejudice that is barely even acknowledged in our society?
That's right. The immigrants who come from their impoverished, drug-ridden home countries and that hear stories of America and how great it is and how there are so many opportunities here for a better life and future and education, and how life here is easier than having to deal with the poverty back at home.
And then this asshole running for president here is saying that he is utterly not willing to support this community of people and not give them the resources they need and that normal american citizens have just by being born here, who, in reality, are the backbone of this society. Because without the farmers, the laborers, the people who do the dirty work, those high and mighty bureaucrats might actually have to get off their asses and do some dirty work, because without those people, society would fall.
And the sad thing is, many can't speak out against Romney, or even vote, because they aren't legal citizens and simply don't understand what's going on.
And this is what makes me really pissed. And also one of the many reasons why I want to launch an encyclopedia set at Mitt Romney's genitals.
