What a Coincidence! You Appear to be 99.9% a Jackass.

Via John Lamb:

At the February meeting when the [county immigration agent] resolution was introduced, Farmer told The Daily Herald he wasn’t concerned an enforcement officer would result in undue harassment of Hispanics.

“It’s just like Ivory soap — 99.99 percent of them are here illegally,” Farmer said.

  1. Ivory soap also floats. therefore, if a brown person is thrown in the river, and doesn’t drown…

  2. Pingback: Volunteer Voters » Maury County Immigration Soap Opera

  3. the man (Bob Farmer) is quoted as claiming 99.99% of hispanic people in some locality (presumably Maury County, Tennessee) are there illegally.

    that sounds like a job for Captain Hyperbole to me. how, exactly, would mr. Farmer know with any certainty that out of every ten thousand hispanics there, no more than one had legal residency? he’s exaggerating, which is no crime, but he’s doing it in a way that slurs an entire social group wholesale and insults his own intelligence.

    he’s a county commissioner, which i assume is an elected position. so he’s also insulting the intelligence of his voters. unfortunately, that seems to be a crime without a punishment these days…

  4. I… what? I’m so confused. What does that even mean? Is there something I don’t know about soap? Is Tennessee getting (back) into the slave trade? Because you’d have to actively try to get that ratio of people here illegally, especially when the people in question are the fastest growing minority group.

    How do think they got here?

    Then again, you can usually walk across the Rio Grande
