Two Birds, One Stone

Jack Davis, Democratic congressional candidate from New York, has some amazingly unique ideas about how to solve his city's problems:

“We have a huge unemployment problem with black youth in our cities,” Davis told the Tonawanda News recently. “Put them on buses, take them out there [to the farms] and pay them a decent wage; they will work.”

That's just BRILLIANT! Let's buy this man a Guinness! It gets better.

“If we take away the magnet of good-paying jobs from illegals, they’ll go home,” Davis said in an interview with The Buffalo News this week. “If they can’t make a good living here, they’ll go home.”

So wait. The average hourly wage of an illegal immigrant is $5.45. Oh, man! If we just stop illegals from working for less-than-minimum-wage by giving those jobs to black youth they will give up and go home! Especially if they came all the way to New York. I wonder if he can get federal money to start some cotton plantations?

Even if you agree with him on other issues, you have to wonder what planet he's living on when he starts proposing these kinds of plans.

(In case you're curious about his stance on other issues: He's not sure which presidential candidate has a better health care plan, thinks global warming is due to solar irradiation increases [I am really tired of hearing this argument], and is pro-drilling in Alaska.)
