Yet.


Uh no self respecting 23 yr old mojado listens to Los Tigres, that's their parents music. El Rey maybe. And they are driving 2002 Tahoes now.

Such people are allowed to drive.

Argue with the feds. But they are now legal residents...and therefore should be able to drive.

To refuse to allow those legally here and legally working here to drive is stupid.
Americans who are unable to drive for whatever reason get around quite nicely with public transportation.

That's just maddening.

They do? Not. Except in the big cities. Man, there are a LOT of places where public transit does NOT get to the job on time.

Irrelevant, the fact is, you are dependent on illegals to eat. But, not to worry, as they return to Mexico your food will still come to your table, from Mexico. Yes, America will become an importer of food, subject to what ever political whims occur in other countries, just as with oil.

I realize that the illegal haters operate from an ideological point of view, not a logical point of view. Today, more Mexicans are leaving the US than are coming in.

Now, as the labor shortages increase, as a higher and higher percentage of our food cannot be harvested, it isn't just higher prices, and importation of food that is becoming a problem. Ag is a quarter of the states economy, if it crashes, the state crashes. There are those who are concerned about the states economy today, well, You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet!

You cannot trash a quarter of a states economy without disaster to the state.

Yes. Observe the same hypocritical contradictions in the other thread going simultaneously to this one -- about opposition to tax breaks for the film industry ... same crew that cries out for strong business posturing for California, to save jobs and revenue, up in arms about doing what it takes in reality to save keystone California industries.

Looks like you and I will ride the ranges and sail the harbors with little company crowding around after all, eh?

Nope. I'm not a singer ... but I'm sure we will chuckle a great deal about the folks who bailed out early in a panic.
