Default George Carlin's solution to save Gasoline

I just got this e-mail, and thought it was a joke, or a chain letter, or some other useless mail.... well, then I read it, and was suprised. It was sort of a joke (but not totally), sort of a chain letter(here I am afterall).. and ultimately useless (to me) all in one... but.... WOW!

I wont comment any further on it, so without further ado:

>Save Gasoline
>
>
>Thought this fair.................
>
>George Carlin's Solution to Save Gasoline
>
>
>Bush wants us to cut the amount of gas we use. The best way to stop
>Using so much gas is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants! That
>would be 11 million less people using our gas. The price of gas would
>come down.
>Bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the border. When they catch
>an illegal immigrant crossing the border, hand him a canteen, rifle and
>some ammo and ship him to Iraq.
>Tell him if he wants to come to America then he must serve a tour in
>the military. Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on
>it. After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he
>defended this country. He will also be registered to be taxed and be a
>legal patriot.
>
>This option will probably deter illegal
>immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Iraq and the
>aliens trying to make a better life for themselves. If they refuse to
>serve, ship them to Iraq anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo.
>Problem solved. If you think this is a good solution to both the
>problems, forward it to your friends.
>
>I just did.
>
>George Carlin


So.. what do YOU guys think??

It's probably somewhat facetious, but the part about making illegal immigrants serve a term in the military is actually a pretty good idea. Let's face it, they're gonna come back anyway, we might as well put them to use.

Did you get this one on Email? If so I do believe George Carlin had a disclaimer on his site about things not being his going around on Email...

I like the idea though :funny:

^ Yeah, Carlin gets stuff attributed to him all the time.

On the idea, it's definitely outside-the-box thinking on a number of problems. It's definitley worth posting in a few other forums to see what reactions it gets. >

Yeah I've seen fake Carlin stuff going around in e-mails before. It doesnt have enough cursing or lil barbed comments in it to be believable as straight from his mouth either

This wouldn't work. Why? Mexico could accuse the U.S. of kidnapping its citizens and sending them to war.

Besides, if the U.S. border patrol can't shoot at drug smugglers crossing the border illeagly, what makes you think they can captue them :
