Well, there are losers in any population. They don't have the market
on that. Also maybe
you should be mad at our government for offering the food stamps.
You are mad that the aliens are taking us up on all we offer.....
no one is putting a gun to the head of people who hire them, or our government
for offering such benefits. Why not go after the source instead of
blaming them, for taking what's offered and them taking it.

I am angry with the people in congress not fighting the million man and women immigration problem. I write my congress weekly.
What do you do to help besides coming on telling others how they should be mad at the goverment? I am doing plenty to help stop the invasion of America.

Why would they need social security when they send $23 Billion a year home? Welfare pays these damn leeches very well, they send our tax dollars to Mexico.

It is the Governments fault for catering to these leeches. But the big guestion is...Why should we be infested with parasites in the first place?

Ummmm... no, he (RedWings) was the one to play the "race card" - I simply called him on it.
Let me quote: "Hey, at least the Irish are white and they would be willing to speak English!!! I'd much rather have an infiltration of the Irish than hispanics!" Please explain to me how that isn't bringing race into the picture...

He was referring to my sarcastic post, which was spoofing the comments about Hispanic immigrants... so please don't think I'm one of "those people". I even put a sarcasm disclaimer at the bottom, LOL!

Yes, but they're also not getting benefits, social security, and everything else you get in return for paying taxes. Trust me, I know all about this, since about half of my current income is cash... perfectly legal, mind you. (I tutor, pet-sit & teach private music lessons for extra $$)

Well, all the so called leeches pretty much keep this old tourist town
running ,so I'm making this my last post because all I see around here
are hard working people trying to make a living for their families.
They do all the landscaping, pool maintenence, housekeeping etc.
I don't see any leeches here. Sorry...
