Earlier this week, Howie Carr (talk show host, newspaper columnist, and general gadfly) had a column in the paper discussing one of his favorite topics — illegal aliens. In it, he spelled out how not only are illegal aliens treated pretty damned well in Massachusetts, but spelled out in black and white how in some cases you’re actually better off if you claim to be an illegal and deny your citizenship.
I’d considered writing about Howie’s column, as it’s the sort of thing I’ve said myself before, but I never got around to it. And now I’m glad I did.
Giacomo of Joust The Facts is a “neighbor” of mine — he’s a doctor who lives in southern New Hampshire, but his practice is in Massachusetts. He read Howie’s column, and it really hit home to him.
Go over there and see what it’s like for a doctor — a highly-educated, highly-trained, highly-respected professional — to be treated like an indentured servant (that’s a fancy word for “just a smidgen better than a slave”) by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. And then see if you still wonder why the population of the Bay State keeps dropping.
