Did it bother you when instead of saying MERRY CHRISTMAS, we are supposed to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS, when they took prayer out of school,
when they removed pork from the schools lunches because it was uncomfortable for different ethnic groups? That is coming from YOUR government, with our rights being taken away and you are more concerned about Illegals?

As a matter of fact, what have consumers gained in any industry dominated by illegals? I haven't noticed a decrease in the cost of anything.
You don't think the price of gas would have any impact on the things you listed? Is it easier to blame the illegals?

Decreasing dollar value, higher gas prices, and any kind of inflation blamed on illegals. Makes sense to me.

Thank you so very much. I have always wondered why so many in this country have fallen for the BS numbers that the government gives out. I remember when they changed the way they computed unemployment and all. Another thing to think about is the fact that so many are no longer looking and are no longer collecting unemployment benefits and when they fall out of the system then they are not counted anymore.

Just because you read it on the internet does not make it true.

Very close to it my friend. You really should learn how data was collected decades ago and see how different it is now compared to how they do it these days. I can tell that you are young but us old farts remember when the government actuially tried to tell the truth about unemployment and such. That is not the case these days. It wasn't even that long ago that Bush made working in a fast food joint a manufacturing job. Does that sound reasonable to you? Of course it is not.

Those issues bother me as well, but since this is the "immigration" forum, I suspect that is why she is discussing immigration and not the Happy Holiday bs.
I don't think she ever said she was more concerned with illegals than other rights. Why do people always have to hop around from subject to subject? Trickery!

When they have no legitimate response they perpetually resort to diversionary tactics of changing the course of the conversation or their worn out trump card aka the Race Card.

Gee, I wonder what they'll do now that the entire board sees their pattern?
