    I pulled that from Techcrunch.

    What do you think?

    Quite frankly I think its a great idea. You want successful people in your country, and this is a great way to do it.

    Sounds like a good way for foreign drug lords to come to America.

    Even better - restrict all immigration to your Startup Visa Act until unemployment falls below 7%.

    Sounds like it would put constraints and regulations on something that already occurs here naturally.

    Apparently some variation of this bill already exists, but I'll be damned if I can find it.

    I'll be damned if I can find a handful of jurisdictions that even enforce it.

    I mean its a pretty good idea. If someone can come to the US and bring a startup with him that creates a decent amount of revenue within a few years, by all means streamline his citizenship.

    Better than giving all those fucking Mexicans who are in the US illegally their citizenship.

    But, but, we CAN'T round up millions of people and send them back!!! That would just be such a hassle. But we know it can be done. The Nazis were very efficient in such matters. Rewarding people for breaking the law en mass is so easier. Don't tell me it CAN'T be done, John McCain. The world has seen it done. All we have to do is bag them, knock on Mexico's border patrol door, and say, "Hey, we got millions of workers here that belong to you, now get the fuck out of the way, and let them pass. Go on, move it. It might take weeks and a few cattle prongs, but we COULD do it if we wanted to. It's just that no one in Congress wants to risk their political lives over it.

    God, I hate this system. I bet you that'll be Obama's last official act as president- an executive order pardoning all illegals.
