The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
This is called “Can I see your ticket please?” It was written by a Mexican who is now a naturalized U.S. citizen, and I think it is a great analogy to the current illegal immigration issue.
Here is the deal:
If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland, or for an airline flight, and when you got to your assigned seat you found someone else was in that seat, what would you do?
You would call for a person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat removed. You would properly be asked to show your ticket, and you would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that seat.
The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, which they would not be able to produce. They would be called gate-crashers, and they would properly be removed.
Now, in this huge stadium called the USA, we have had tens of millions of gate-crashers. We have been asking Security to check for tickets and remove the gate-crashers. We have been asking Security to have better control in checking at the door. We have asked Security to lock the back doors.
Security has failed us. They are still looking the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full price.
In Section AZ of Stadium USA, we have had enough of the failures of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and properly remove those who do not have tickets.
Now, it seems very strange to me that so many people in the other 49 Sections, and even many in our own Section, do not want tickets checked, or even to be asked to show their ticket.
Even the head of Security is chastising us while not doing his own job, which he has sworn to do.
My own ticket has been bought and paid for, so I am proudly going to show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the gate-crashers to be asked to show their tickets, too.
The only reason that I can imagine anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is that they are in favor of gate-crashing, and all of the illegal activities that go with it, such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder, human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts that we are trying to prevent with our new legislation.
If you are not in favor of showing tickets (that is, proof of citizenship, passport, green card, or other legal documents) when asked, as I would do proudly, then you must be condoning those illegal activities.
Since Obama has never shown his ticket, perhaps he feels obligated to not ask others to show theirs. I would call this situation destructive political correctness. Shame on those who promote this blatant dishonesty.
For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.
