“We’ll Pick Up Our Own Garbage”

Conservatives in Europe and the United States has identified a new issue that will help ensure their countries will be better places in which to live. The modern conservative believes it is important for those who are born in their countries to pick up the garbage and not allow a bunch of foreigners to assume control over this important aspect of the economy. Silvio Berlusconi, prime minister of Italy, and Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France, issued a joint statement in which they demand an end to allowing anyone to cross the border of European Union nations. “We believe in free circulation but we believe in a state of law and certain number of rules.”

In other words, they do not want to allow refugees from places like Libya or Tunisia to hop across the Mediterranean and wander around Europe picking fruit and shoveling shit. Right wing conservatives are demanding an end to such freedom to pick up garbage and restore this important task to native born members of the European Union. Of course, in the United States there is a similar view among Republicans that picking strawberries should be restricted to those who can prove they were born in America.

We assume this means Barack Obama will not be allowed to work on a garbage truck.
