you are FORTUNATE to be born in america and be able to live such a lavish lifestyle (based on a global scale). why are you so reluctant to share your fortune? why hoarde it? sharing is something we were supposed to learn in kindergarten.
No one gave ma a D##m thing and I'm D##m sure not giving it away to someone from another country...You feel free to do so if that's what you want to, but I'll keep mine that I earned from doing some ot those jobs that Americans wont so.

I could care less what those in other countries "have". Frankly, I focus more on what "OUR" countrymen have -

And what if you had come in contact with an illegal and you didnt even know it??
I once saw a guy at a bus stop whom I SUSPECT may have been a wife-beater...he just had that look about him. Our eyes met briefly, and I turned away, not wanting to seem "nosy". But I could bet MONEY the guy beats his wife.
We went our separate ways, and to this day, I can't be certain. He may be a very good-natured guy much of the time, when he's not beating his wife. He may be a good neighbor...in fact, he MAY not even BE a wife-beater...and, in fact, I can't personally swear that there are ANY wife-beaters in the USA. My information only comes second-hand.....I'm a male, so I'll never be a wife at all, so I guess it's really none of my business.
Good point....

you sure arent showing the appreciation for the lifestyle you were indeed given simply by being born inside the united states. the high standard of living, the social programs, what did you do to EARN any of that?

i could agree with you, if we didnt have a massive influx of immigrants coming into our country. it is a problem, so now we must sacrifice in order to properly address this problem. it was our own extreme self-interest that helped created this economic imbalance, which is the main cause of the immigration problem.
