Uh...no.

Humor is supposed to be funny, of which, your attempt here has failed miserably.

All of you may indeed be onto something: and it could be jealousy goading the self anointed 'elite' to try to have a 'Mexican' style society.

Almost as if the 'powers to be'; most of whom were working people 1-2 generations back seem to want to shut the gate into Middle Class behind them.

Paranoid or prescient? You decide.

Yes, they do.

In fact, a very reasonable argument can be made that the drastic increase in illegal immigration during Reagan's terms was a planned, directed attack to weaken workers' unions.

Default A funny I got in the email....

A funny I got in the email....

The other day, I needed to go to the emergency room. Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my old Air Force fatigues and stuck a patch that I had downloaded off the Internet onto the front of my shirt.

When I went into the E.R., I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left. I guess they decided that they weren't that sick after all.

Here's the patch. Feel free to use it the next time you're in need of quicker emergency service.

I do believe that to be true.

Wouldn't work here in So Cal - not only do we have special order 40, but if someone around here went into an area of predominantly illegal aliens, they could likely be executed with a machete or jumped by a gang of vatos.

The illegal community here is like a shadow society that floats around in untouchable impunity, and they are all too aware of it.

That 'Special Order 40' needs to be declared illegal.
