## Acorn's "bilingual" strategy

If the undocumenteds are allowed to shout in English or in Spanish, Acorn will dispatch a team to the south to coach the underprivilegeds this simple strategy.

Since the hats are distributed randomly, the last undocumented in line, can not gain any information about the color of his own hat based on what he sees in front of him. His chance of survival is 50%.

There is a simple strategy, however, to assure the survival of all the rest of undocumenteds, no matter how many persons are in the line. Since every undocumented can see the hat's color of the person in front of you, he can use a method to declare the right color of his own hat and at the same time alert the person in front of him.

If he has been alerted that his own hat is black, he should shout in Spanish "negro" if the person in front of him also has the same color. If he shouts in English "black" that could only mean that the person in front of him has a hat of opposite color.
If he has been alerted that his own hat is white, he should shout in Spanish "blanco" if the person in front of him also has the same color. If he shouts in English "white" that could only mean that the person in front of him has a hat of opposite color.

So the strategy is simple & easy to remember: Spanish means we are the same and English is exactly opposite.

## "English only" stratety

Since the hats are distributed randomly, the last undocumented in line, (identified here as #1 since he is the first one to shout) can not gain any information about the color of his own hat based on what he sees in front of him. His chance of survival is 50%.

There is a strategy, however, that #1 can help his fellow travellers and to assure the survival of all of them.

What #1 has to do is to count the number of black hats on all those in front of him. If the number of black hats is odd, he shouts “black”, and if the number of black hats is even, he shouts “white”. Let’s suppose he shouts “black”.

Now #2 also counts the number of black hats on all those in front of him. From the information he receives from #1, he knows that the total number of the black hats that #1 sees is an odd number. If the number of black hats he has just counted is an odd number, he knows that his own hat must be white. If that number is even, then his own hat must be black in order for #1 to see an odd number of black hats. Let's suppose #2 sees an even number of black hats in front of him and shouts "black". He will survive.

Now it is #3 turn. From the information he receives from #1, the total number of the black hats #1 sees is an odd number. Since #2 declares that he wears black hat and survives, then the remaining black hats should be an even number. All he has to do is to count the number of black hats on all those in front of him. If it is still an even number, his own hat must be white. If it is an odd number, it is because he himself wears a black hat.

By using this strategy and keep track of odd/even status of black hats, except for #1, who has a 50/50 chance of being shot, all other undocumenteds can look forward to fulfill their American dreams of joining Democratic Party and becoming union members.

The question is: if this bill tilts heavily in favor of the undocumenteds, why do Rush Limbaugh and his fellow right-wingers also like it ? When Sarah Palin was informed of the bill, she exclaimed: " Is this better than the Death Panel? You betcha !"

The reason is simple. Rush Limbaugh and his dittoheads are convinced that most undocumenteds can only count with their fingers. Democrats were outraged when they heard Limbaugh's comment, but they are also pushing a pro-choice amendment that gives the undocumateds' right to choose the number of the people in a line. The right-wingers have no objection. Say you divide 100 people into 10 groups, then there will be ten people in #1 position and at risk. With a 50/50 odd, five of them will be shot. Five in a hundred is a good number for an average right-winger. Despite her bravado, Sarah Palin has so far only shot three migrating caribous.

Finally, we have an immigration reform bill that both parties can agree upon !
Now we can all celebrate with a few jokes.

At Donald Trump's rally in Dayton, Ohio (March 12, 2016), a liberal protester, Thomas DiMassimo, jumped the barricades and rushed the stage. Trump's speech was interrupted as the Secret Service agents leapt on stage and formed a protective circle around him. Trump was visibly startled, "I was ready for him, but it's much easier if the cops do it," Trump said. The combative Dimassimo was tackled to the ground and arrested for disorderly conduct and inducing panic. He was later falsely accused by Trump to have ties to ISIS. When asked about the incident, a Secret Service agent explained, "The man is delusional and dangerous, but we still have to protect him."
