EXACTLY !

For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

Why do you insist on being intellectually dishonest? To compare something like speeding to breaking the immigration laws of a sovereign nation shows just how fundamentally disingenuous you folks really are.

Sorry I have to laugh. You want them what? Pay taxes? I am sorry, that's just too funny!

1. They don't pay no stinky taxes.
2. They surely would enjoy welfare and medicare
3. They will take all your jobs away, starting with the minimum wage jobs.

So by welcoming illegals, you are essentially:

1. Pay less benefits to all Americans
2. Help more Americans to lose jobs.
3. Tax more on all Americans so that you can afford to pay unemployment and benefits in 1&2.

Not very smart if you are a American!

How much does MSNBC pay you to post this stuff ???

Please show us one instance where FOX has portrayed illegals as rabid animals to be put down !

Why do you say that illegal aliens are "some rabid animal barely tolerated until it's put down or sent to the pound"?

No one else (including Fox) has described them that way. You are the only one.

Have you sought help for your strange attitude toward illegal aliens?

I complained about driving tourists in Florida, but we didn't kick them out.

Thats just what the insurance company tells you, and you don't have to live in California.

They do pay taxes, when they buy things there is a sales tax, there is a gasoline tax, lots of taxes. I want them to pay income tax, SSI, and medicare taxes

Welfare is when you aren't working. If they aren't working, then they can leave.

No they aren't taking jobs away. Actually you pay significantly lower prices in the grocery store because of migrants and illegals.

The other things I said refute your last three points

Pretty clear ...

This might help for a few others


A lesson in irony.

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is actually proud of the fact it is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

This ends today's lesson.

I probably do but my simple act of being on the soil of this country is not illegal. Why do people forget that illegal immigrants are precisely that - ILLEGAL!
