And; we 'owe' our Vets a hell of a lot more than to a bunch of illegal immigrant losers.

Admittedly; some Vets prefer to be left alone and be 'homeless' (which I can understand for similar reasons), but, at least they should still have ready access to proper services.

That is great that you would do those jobs with your mom, but you are two of the scarce ones. When you drive around and you see HELP WANTED signs. There are quite a few in Arizona and some have the signs up all the time. It is all about price. It would be like you going to the butcher and want a prime Rib, one butcher is charging $20.00 and the other butcher is charging $40.00, which one would you choose? It is not fair, but with the economy in the dumps, employers are also looking to be able to stay in business.

I was born and raised on a "Dairy Farm" in MI. Our family was also in the "logging Business". I would happy to "and just might end up doing it" and that's returning to a job of either farming or Forestry.

Exactly!

Every dollar spent on housing an Illegal Immigrant is one less dollar spent on housing a homeless vet who has paid with their service, blood and lives.

Every Dollar spent feeding an Illegal Immigrant is one less dollar spent feeding an American who paid taxes.

Every Dollar spent educating Illegal Immigrant Children is one less Dollar spent to educate an American Child who's Ancestors paid with their slave labor.

Every dollar spent on teaching Illegal Immigrants English is one less dollar spent on Legal Immigrants who have paid both time and money to come here legally.

Sadly I know in the coming years we will see an increase in Homeless Vets as those who return from the Middle East fail to find help for the psychological and physical trauma they have been through.

Weather you support or oppose the War, the Vets have sacrificed in our name and that of our country. They deserve to get the medical care that they need. I ask that all reading this remind their Government officials of the Debt that we owe as well as to try to pay for it by donating to Veterans organizations with your time or money.

Is that so?

Then why is it when said employer fires an American to whom he was paying a living wage plus benefits and hires an illegal alien for indentured servitude wages and no benefits, said employer merely pockets said savings and doesn't enhance that business by passing savings onto customers?

Because, he's merely interested in increasing his bottom line by whatever means, whether those means are legal or not and he doesn't care who he has to take advantage of to do so.

That is not a person I personally would want to do business with.

But you and others only seem to think that the illegal lovers have the right to free speech, as all of you do what you can to shut the anti-illegal people up.
