RR 12: Yearning To Be Free? Not So Fast…

It was always a source of pride for many of us growing up, especially in the rough and tumble immigrant-heavy Bronx neighborhoods where I spent my formative years.

I’ll bet almost everyone reading this can recite the last few lines of Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus”.

You know, the one about giving us your tired and poor? Your wretched refuse?  Exactly! The words carved into the base of the Statue of Liberty.

Well, forget what you’ve learned amigos because the updated version will include a few lines about arming yourself against kids coming across the border like these two yahoos:

Texas Governor Perry and Fox News Personality Posing With Their ACME Anti-Immigrant Gun
Texas Governor Rick Perry and Fox News personality Sean Hannity posing with their ACME brand Anti-Immigrant Gun. Wile E. Coyote endorsed it personally.

Paranoia and fear served up with a heaping helping of bigotry makes for a very potent mix.

On this episode Mike and Pedro discuss how the situation at the Texas border has taken on an almost surreal quality and propose an equally surreal solution to the problem.

The riotous duo also opine on Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart’s new English-language morning show on MSNBC and discuss Nuyorican vedette Jennifer Lopez and the big-bootied bugs named in her honor.

What? We are professional jodones and take our responsibilities very seriously.
