<quoted text>I keep telling you you can leave son.
And I keep asking you what country is better than America...
... but you don't answer.
And I've also suggested you live in your motherland as well. We don't need you demanding that we support other foreign nations.
My mother land is Russia. That is where my relatives immigrated legally from. Putin is a better leader than O'bama these days. Maybe you are correct, they don't put up with moslem bull crap either.

At a minimum in 2012, Dennis Kucinich and Tim Holden.
Probably others.
Kucinich was mostly the victim of gerrymandering, the district was redrawn, Kucinich didn't stand a chance against Kaptur. Not sure about Holden from your area, was the PA 17th congressional district redesigned?

<quoted text>Quit growing corn for ethanol. I am all for cutting the farm subsidiaries. The democrat state of Illinois is one of the biggest scams for farm subsidies.
top ten states receiving farm subsidies
1 Texas $27,345,263,157 9.3%
2 Iowa $24,933,868,807 8.5%
3 Illinois $20,701,913,443 7.1%
4 Minnesota $17,131,808,699 5.9%
5 Nebraska $16,387,370,103 5.6%
6 Kansas $16,357,331,273 5.6%
7 North Dakota $14,891,707,006 5.1%
8 South Dakota $11,112,537,228 3.8%
9 Arkansas $10,816,848,467 3.7%
10 California $10,341,252,547 3.5%

and I'm willing to guess that in those liberal states, the subsidies go to conservative rural counties that vote conservative

Interesting report, which I'm pretty sure you haven't read, only copied some conservative talking points
so from the little I've read, there has been a problem with the process since its inception in 1996 (Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress and enacted the change to the tax code)
upon complaints by 2 IRS employees, the IRS launched an investigation.
the number of ITIN's being turned down has increased since CY 2008
the IG reported there are serious problems
7 of the 9 recommendations of the report have been adopted by the IRS.
so what have we learned
there is a problem with the tax code, has been since 1996. nothing was done to fix the problem until the Obama administration.
BTW, I wouldn't give credit to the White House politicians for correcting the problem, I'll bet is the career bureaucrats....
oh, and I'm pretty sure the same problem was happening under the Bush administration, only they failed to investigate it
It was fixed? LOL. I can hardly wait to see what 2012 looks like. How long has O'bama been in office? never?

dude, first you need to learn the difference between homosexual and pedophile

one has an attraction to adults of the same sex, the other has an attraction to prepubescent children be they male or female

I'm guessing you're a big fan of Stalin too,

my girlfriend immigrated from Russia, she hates putin as does every other Russian I know. he's a brutal dictator. many believe that those Chechenyan terrorist attacks in Moscow were false flag operations.

Conservative members of Congress would gladly vote for across-the-board spending cuts, including elimination of all tax credits and subsidies.
Of course, that would include eliminating the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Obamacare premium subsidy, as well as the tax credits and subsidies that you dislike.
then how come they didn't propose gutting farm subsidies on the latest farm bill????

actions speak louder than words...republicans were all for cutting food stamps, but not a one mentioned cutting farm subsidies

Gee, you do realize that "PRIMARIED" has become a verb, Like Sen Luger was PRIMARIED by a tea party candidate.
when was the last time you saw a Democratic incumbent lose his seat in a primary election because he wasn't liberal enough or didn't toe the party line lock step
"Primaried" only applies to the Democratic party because there no longer is a Republican party, just a anti-Obama party, hating him is all they agree on. In 2014 the last remnants of the former Republican party will self-destruct. Bless the tea baggers!

I always find it amazing that the conservative right demonizes illegal immigrants, complaining of how much of a parasite they are on our society, but they never mention the people/industries that hire them and make a pretty penny exploiting them.
Myth One: Assuming all illegal aliens are employed? The number is unknown and probably small due to myth 2.

Progressives confuse aliens entering the country with work permitted green cards. These individuals are not illegal aliens unless they don't leave after card expires.

Myth Two: Not realizing it is already illegal to hire illegal aliens.
