Quite true. There are lots of people like you, Driller, who didn't get a degree and are doing very well. Yes, his degree means nothing to me either.

I think I will take your advice. People who cannot have a civil debate, who parrot "bigot" when their views on a subject are different than others tend to be tiring to deal with.

LOL @ running away from a debate you are losing. Don't want to be called a bigot, don't say that hearing a private conversation in another language is annoying. You are showing unwarranted bias against another culture, that is bigotry.

Saying, "I don't give a crap" is not being uncivilized, it is speaking frankly.

But yeah, walk way... keep walking...

I know several teachers and they have said the same thing...the parents usually don't speak any English and they have to rely on the kids to translate.

I didn't bring it up, the other posters (that you say don't care about it), did.... I just mentioned how EXTREMELY obvious it is that you guys haven't taken simple Econ classes, then I was asked about my education.

You do NOT need a degree to be successful, but to those of us who have take years of econ classes, it is very obvious when other people have not.

LOL, I get asked my education, refuse to give out too many details, and then get accused of brandishing one of my degrees.

This has been debunked with hard numbers.

Hard numbers > anecdotes.

You have posted absolutely no evidence that importing millions of very impoverished, very government dependent illegals is going to benefit the USA in any way -- many Americans are not earning much over minimum wage now -- what exactly is your reason for wanting to cram all of Central America's poverty into every part of the USA? Why? No one has explained a single benefit for this country or for the taxpayers.
