I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

God's punishment for abortion, II

Previously I wrote a post about an anti-illegal immigration rally and how the Abortion Guy was there promoting the notion that illegal immigration is God's punishment for abortion.

Apparently he's not alone.

The Harare Grocer (h/t Waldo) takes it one step further and says that the financial mess we're in today has its specific and direct cause rooted in Abortion. How is this possible, you ask?Well the logic is simple (really, really simple).
In the thirty five years since Roe v. Wade, 48.5 million babies have been killed (legally) in the United States. That’s 48 million people under the age of 35 that we’re missing as a nation - about 20 million of which would now be in the workforce.

In 1973, according to the US government, the estimated number of illegal immigrants in the United States was at 4 million people. In the intervening thirty-five years, those same years since Roe, that number has quintupled to (you guessed it) around 20 million. To replace the population, especially the workforce population, that had been lost by abortion, businesses turned to an underground market of illegal immigrant labor.

Where did those illegals live? Many were (and in some places, still are) in tent cities and trailer parks hidden away around the nation.

But, in the 1990s, something strange happened. In the ‘90s, those who wanted low-income folks (many of whom had been the victims of racial discrimination) to get more affordable housing changed the rules for lending to those folks, but did it in a way that included easing the paperwork burden. This noble goal came with an unintended consequence: illegal immigrants flocked to buy houses, since the new rules made it easier to get mortgages without actually being a citizen or legal resident.

Those same rule changes allowed no down payment mortgages up to 125% of the value of the house – which encouraged fraud among the illegal immigrant population.
Imagine the fraud possibility – you use the fraudulent documents that allowed you to steal someone else’s identity to also get a mortgage, for 125% of the value of a home, pocket the extra 25% in cash, live in the house for a year, don’t make payments, leave to go work somewhere else and let the bank foreclose. And because you’re on a stolen identity, no one can track you down.
I knew it wasn't the speculators and the greedy lenders, I knew it! It all goes back to the illeals from Mexico and the evil feminists who opened the door to them!
