Apparently, California has an unlimited supply of federal funding. These astronomical amounts of welfare and social services provided to illegal aliens has been paid out for a while now. This is an interesting can of worms isn't it?

Not as long as they are given food stamps and all the many rest here. The depression will also affect Mexico. They could go home and start living like they did 50 years ago, working hard, raising a few chickens, planting a garden but they've developed some real bad habits here. An awful lot of them aren't going to want to work, certainly not the work they'd be facing back home.

“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich. “Annually, the cost of illegal immigration to Los Angeles County taxpayers exceeds one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $432 million in welfare allocations. This does not include millions of dollars for education.”

Of course they know. California, specifically L.A. is the capital of all US illegal alien sanctuaries. That being said, what's left of their taxpayers are either fleeing or fighting to change the laws.

Yes, indeed! The entire world knows how to scam the US. We have become the Welfare State for Mexico, and the laughingstock of the world. However, our economic woes will change this abuse significantly.

I am 100% sure you are correct: our financial 9-11 started almost to the day of the anniversary of when Osama attacked back in 2001. And the screaming irony is we have a better than 50/50 chance of having a President named Obama----------although methinks that Al Qaida will gag being that the Demo candidate is a Christian. Can someone say 'Karma'?

While I am not an Obama supporter, I do believe that if he is elected, our relationship with the rest of the planet will change for the better.

What many fear mongers, racists, etc. fail to acknowledge is that the majority of the world outside of the US are people of color. While America is fighting amongst itself along party and racial lines, the rest of the world is happily rooting for Obama because they are sick of the white Americans who bully them. I say this not out of disrespect to my fellow Americans but from a point of reality.

While I love my country, we have made our share of mistakes which has resulted in the global hatred from the people of many nations, including our [paid] allies, who have gone along with us not out of loyalty but out of fear and simply for the sake of survival. The last 8 years has resulted in weakening our status in the eyes of the rest of the world, politically, financially, and militarily.

Many of these countries have grown up, are becoming increasingly independent of the US and many are outpacing America on every level. They are tired of being bullied and overshadowed. Make no mistake about it, if Obama is not elected, once the money runs out, so goes our allies, our political influence and our status as super power.

Wow -- how many working people are even in California? How much does each have to give to come up with this size welfare program?

They can't.

Sooner or later the middle class flight from California will bring this house of cards tumbling to the ground.

I would bet sooner rather than later.

Would California then get federal funding to keep going? I am shocked to read in another message on this list that this bailout includes a lot of money for ACORN and LaRaza.
