|As PETA says: "Goats are people too."|
Beginning next month, a herd of goats will prowl the areas between runways and graze on the dense brush that grows there.
The goats, of course, require no fossil fuels to do their landscaping work and have the added green benefit of making their own compost.
Now this, of course, is very bad news for the illegal aliens who dominate the landscaping industry here in Chicago and elsewhere.
Any minute now, I expect the illegal alien pimps at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) to begin howling in protest. They'll no doubt soon be out at the Daley Center with placards proclaiming: Goats Unfair to Undocumented Workers!!
But to that I say: Too Bad.
These goats are just doing jobs that illegal aliens won't do. The illegal aliens will not cut the grass along runways using only their teeth and they will not turn the grass clippings into very useful poop.
So I say, let's start trading in all of our illegal alien grass cutters for goats.
They are a helluva lot cheaper and far more eco-friendly.
And we can even legislate these goats their very own "path to citizenship."
Because as PETA so adroitly puts it: "Goats are people too."
