You're ecstatic when people who don't agree with you politically are robbed, raped or murdered? What kind of sociopathic monster are you?

Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir."
"Are there no prisons?"
"Plenty of prisons..."
"And the Union workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?"
"Both very busy, sir..."
"Those who are badly off must go there."
"Many can't go there; and many would rather die."
"If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."
You know, when you start sounding like Ebeneezer Scrooge before he had his heel face turn, you should really examine what you're doing wrong in your life.

Yes, they are making room for the 100+ million expected invasion.

If we don't elect Trump, the slide will accelerate.
Within 20-30 years America will have a population twice the
current size and half foreign-born.
I think this is their ultimate goal. They want a nation of 1 billion, mostly ignorant peasants.

As I remember, Scrooge's employee was an honest, hardworking man -- not a shiftless parasite!

So -- like Scrooge -- my response to your post is, "Bah, Humbug!"

And Scrooge was a tightfisted miser consumed by greed who cared only about money and nothing about other people. Much like some of the people in this thread.

And BTW, Cratchet was poor and a hard worker, much like many real poor people in the modern world. Most able people who are on public assistance have jobs. They just don't make enough to make ends meet. But to people like you, people either fall into the "producers" or "takers" camp, and if you're not a "winner" you're automatically a "shiftless parasite."

The lack of empathy is truly disgusting.

Your lack of empathy for those of us to have to pay for shiftless -- and often criminal -- parasites is truly disgusting.

Your lack of empathy for the working poor is also truly disgusting. So I guess there is that.

Oh look at that, you made yourself sound worse, good job.

Support yourself, don't reach into my pocket.

If you can't live on one job, get another. Or get a roommate. Or move to a part of the country with a lower cost of living and more and better jobs.

Just do it and stop complaining.

Hundreds of thousands of poor people legally immigrate to this country, work hard, and do very well for themselves.

They know that this is a land of opportunity.

We have whole sections of our cities where people live on welfare, stand around in the street all day, deal drugs, commit crimes, join gangs, have children out of wedlock, etc.

Don't try and make me sympathize with these people.

They have no interest in working, studying, or doing anything to improve themselves.

So we have all these jobs that "Americans won't do," with illegal aliens doing them instead.

MY tax money and insurance premiums pay for all of this. Schooling and emergency room care and incarceration costs for illegals. Welfare and incarceration costs for shiftless U.S. citizens....

You aren't thinking either. What causes people to be destitute while working? One way, they live in a high cost of living area -- not their fault, but they should consider moving from N.Y./S.F./Boston or wherever they are that the rent is keeping them poor. The other is to have children outside of marriage that you can't afford. That's not a decision we should be subsidizing or supporting -- if we ever give enough in welfare to make people better rather than worse off because of that -- and section 8 crosses that line for the recipients -- we've royally screwed up societally both in terms of incentives and in terms of fairness (to all the people living life right and not getting the same supports and to all the people paying taxes for it).

I'd go so far as to say that people who need public support because they want work but can't find it or are bona-fide disabled are as a group far and away the most deserving recipients of public support; while people having kids they can't support outside of a traditional marriage are the least. Nothing wrong with looking for work and failing to find it, as long as you keep looking. Nothing wrong with having a legitimate disability. God forbid, it could happen to any and all of us. Faked disability and effectively choosing poverty through having kids outside of marriage are a different story -- and let's be real here, most of the people who are on public assistance while working are in the latter "choose-to" group.

You're not helping yourself here. If we want to talk about tax dollars, I would like to stop funding corporations, I would like to stop funding useless expensive wars, and I would like to stop funding a bloated prison system. Let me know when we stop wasting my tax dollars on those things, and then we will talk about this issue you have with your tax dollars going to illegals.

That is what your whole rant was about, illegals, right?

Being closer to prospective victims of rape, murder and burglary the move will lower CO2 emissions that contribute to global warming. In other words it's "the green thing to do!"

Now I got to ask you where are they going to put all the Section 8 housing on Martha's Vineyard where all the high and mighty left wing democrats vacation and live? I am thinking John Kerry, who made his millions by marrying not one but TWO wealthy widows never having accomplished a damn thing on his own, needs some diversity in his life!
