there is no hope for me not even a tier 5 so nin can go ahead with nothing and know there is nothing comming. in see how the real world is, if you don\t have money you might as well lay down somwewhere, the only place you would get into would be a nursing home, is that what it has come t? APPARENTLY IT IS, YES DEPORT ALL THE IMMIGRANTION, TURN IN EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO IS ON DISABILITY AND WORKING FOR CASH, TURN IN ALL EMPLOYERS BREAKING THE LAW AND THERE ARE PLENTY TURN EVERONE THAT IS WORKING ILLEGAL OR DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL AND PUT THEM IN THE SAME BOAT WITH US AND LET THEM SEE HOW IT FEELS TO TURN THE TABLES.

Trying to get the verified but it was mentioned on two talk radio shows I was listening while headed out to support a local, family run farm staffed by all local kids, that four Obama staffers have drafted a memo showing how basically illegals can get amnesty without Obama having to present anything to anybody. It was supposedly leaked out through AP last night but I have bot been able to find anything. Was I hearing things?

Mexican immigrants carrying bottles of water attempt to cross the Mexico-U.S. border illegally from Sasabe, in the state of Sonora into the Arizona desert in the United States, April 2006.
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration, unable to push an immigration overhaul through Congress, is considering ways it could go around lawmakers to allow undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States, according to an agency memo.

Do you think it's hard to find a job these days?
How long have you been out of work?
The Obama administration is ready to legalize 12-20 million illegals and
give them work permits. Do you know what is means?
You thought that maybe you can find a job for $10-14 / hour.. huh?
Not anymore ! Those legalized illegals will take that job for minimum wage.

the arrogant MOFO's that have been sitting around in washington for the past 20 - 40 years developing their Royalty Caste lifestyle do not care about the condition of Americans, the economy or votes.....
they have come to believe that raising enough money for elections is all they need and screw the people.

Never go into a fight with a member of the House or the Senate......they will run off a let you get your azz kicked.

Americans no longer look out for Americans

I lost my job as a electrician back in 2007 after 18 years in the trade and havn't been able to find any work.Construction is dead in pennsylvania.Over half the folks I know are out of work. I see houses up and down my street for sale and people moving away. I can't remember a time in this country in my 41 years that thing looked so bad.
