A friend of mine sent this to me today. Most of you are going to like it, a couple of you obviously will not.


YouTube - There's A War On The Middle Class

Note to Mods: Watch the video and you'll understand the "immigration" connection.

Default Interesting

That's certainly thought provoking, I expect this to be a hot topic pretty quick!

Seeing Bush I and Clinton together reminded me of the signing of NAFTA coutesy of Clinton signaled that this invasion was in full swing. Many democrats would like to believe that Bush, Jr.'s watch signaled the beginning of our globalized state of economic misery, when the truth of the matter is that both parties have been duplicitous in all of this.

Thanks Kele, great video!

Open borders and cheap labor are simply another move toward the extermination of the middle class. I fully expect that in my lifetime, the U.S. will dissolve into a country of haves and have nots with absolutely nothing in between.

....pretty much a definition of what the "Third World" is all about....right? We'll still 'be here'....we just won't be special anymore. In short, we'll no longer be "us"....

I happen to think you're right...barring some massive, as-yet unimaginable 'turnaround'. A lot of us right here on this forum simply don't "get" this. America, as they see it, is something like a 3000-mile wide 'festival'...just show up, come as you are, be 'yourself', get your share of the 'goodies', and that's all that's required. Just 'want to be here', and you're OK. It's ALL HERE for the 'taking', and don't let ANYONE tell you otherwise !!

It's a little bit like Disneyland, except that here, you can 'sneak' in, if you want ...(just TRY sneaking into the REAL Disneyland !!).

Needless to say, this is NOT a realistic way to run a "First World" nation.....which is why our "First World" status probably has a very limited future.

I'm not sure.
Your attack at the Maywood protest wasn't kept out of the Lime Light.
It was on KFI and several other Talk Radio stations. What I remember the most is...this is vague, but if I'm not mistaken, I think saw you being interviewed by the media. I can;t remember if it was on a sidewalk or where. But I do remember watching a woman being interviewed about it.
I was with the MinuteMen at that time.

Immigration has been a fringe issue for quite some time. Luckily, people are beginning to piece the puzzle together -- in short what illegal immigration did to the blue collar workers, outsourcing will do to the white collar workers.

I'm afraid macmeal is right --- we are becoming less the land of the free and more of a feudal state. I fear that my children will not meet, much less exceed, the standard of living of their childhood. And that is treasoness on behalf of the politicians. I wish someone would ask obama and mccain how this is a beneficial tradeoff for US citizens in the face of their hispandering zeal.

They both would use the same damn cliche' as the illegals do. And just to avoid offending them...not us....them.

"They do work American Citizens won't do"!
