The Flake — Senator Jeff Flake, Undocumented Democrat

The flake, Big Red Car? Who is the flake?

Big Red Care here on a sunny ATX day, not as sunny as usual, but nice, nonetheless. Today, the Big Red Car has a potato stuck in its tailpipe about Senator Jeff Flake, junior Undocumented Democrat #nevertrump Senator from Arizona.

We have two undocumented Democrat Senators from Arizona — Jeff Flake and John McCain. Couple of pieces o’ work?

So, Jeff Flake has written a book. A sitting Senator has written a book. The book is

A flake, Big Red Car?

Yes, dear reader, let me cut to the chase. The guy has written two books in the last two years while being paid to pretend to be a US Senator. Isn’t being a Senator supposed to be a full time job?

Or are we paying this flake to write books?

I don’t really care what he writes. Couldn’t care a bit, but I do resent that he’s writing books full time while drawing pay to be an undocumented Democrat Senator. Bother you?

OK, that’s it. No more.

But, hey, what Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Maybe I should write a book?

    What make you think he is writing these books? The Ghost writer is a Humanities Professor at ASU, or something like that I am sure

    Jeff Poor, “Flake: Country Is ‘Far Better Off Because of Migrant Labor,’” Breitbart, August 3, 2017.

    is in part:

    So, I very much agree that we are far better off because of migrant labor.”

    and

    “We know very well in Arizona, in particular, the value of migrant labor,” he said. “I grew up on a ranch in Snowflake, AZ. I talk about it a lot in the book. I grew up working next to migrant labor, and I’ve always felt that they were making America better and we were better off because of their hard work.

    Yup, migrant labor was good for someone growing up on a ranch in Arizona.

    For the people in Arizona who weren’t part of a family that lived on a ranch and, thus, due to the migrant labor could not get a job, they should do the Arizona, conservative, responsible, self-sufficient, moral thing and just die, right?

    And for the migrants? Sure, due to the relatively high value of the US dollar, a migrant can work in the US for a while, living in squalid conditions not suitable for raising a family, save his money, return to his home country, and do relatively well there with his US dollars.

    I know; I know; if those American workers in Arizona were really worthy, moral, respectable, responsible people, then they should do another Google and be worth $500 billion or at least get a job with Google. Right, Jeff?

    Jeff, send your resume to Google, with an assumed name and your political connections omitted, and see if your technical qualifications would get you hired at Google! You are really good with really large scale C++ programming, right, Jeff?

    Exercise: Explain

    k = ++i+++++j++

    Really clear to you, right?

    Hint: That’s much of why the language is called C++. It’s an inside joke: The ‘++’ doesn’t mean much, much better; instead it just means increment by 1. That syntax and semantics are in the language because the first version ran on a small, slow DEC computer which, however, had a single instruction to increment by one. Thus using that instruction would be a little faster than, say, the more common approach of

    i = i + 1

    But, Jeff, you knew that, right?

    Uh, Jeff, unlike the migrants, the US workers have no place to go where US dollars are like gold and enough for a relatively good life and, instead, have to try to live here in the US and support a family; for this, he needs a job that pays well enough for him to support a family.

    Or you want to tell the laboring class of Arizona that they have no right to have a family? Uh, for your reelection, I’d like to see you campaign on that position!

    And, we have to be sure that Senator Flake would conclude that the family of Scarlett O’Hara was “much better off” due to their use of imported labor.

    Jeff, baby, we fought a war over that stuff, killed ballpark 600,000 Americans.

    I know; I know; I know; in your heart you “have always felt” that importing migrant labor was good for America, but anyone with brain knows in their head that you are NUTS. You are not the first politician from Arizona like that.

    Uh, Jeff, you like the work of the migrant laborers so much, it would be very appropriate, really the only moral thing, for you to resign from the Senate and devote your career to such work.

    Now for that war that killed ~600,000 Americans, you want to start that war again?

    Open book exam essay question for BRC…multiple choice but need backup: What is worse for the country a) 2 senators from Vermont; b) 2 senators from Massachusetts; c) 2 senators from Maine; d) 2 senators from CA; e) 2 senators from Arizona; f) all of the above. Extra credit if you also comment on 2 senators from NY.

    • sigmaalgebra

      Yes, but Flake and McCain are both supposed to be Republicans!

      For NY, I did my best and wrote a letter to Chucky and mentioned Kirsten, and asked them both to quit their civil war on the Republicans and, instead, work on what they were being paid for as senators, helping to govern the country, in particular, working with the White House. If they just want to throw spit balls at the White House, then they should resign as senators and get a job with the DNC.

      OK, so I’m going with “f” — final answer.
