Welcome back. I'm so glad your brand of crazy never goes unpublished. Are you sleeping with Mark the ex-con?

As usual, Sylvia Vrabec's senseless rambling reveals her deep seated racist views. I'm sure she and her fellow Tea Party buddies are all upset at any Imigration Legislation. As usual, she ignores reality which includes: 1) due to current border security and a lower birth rate in Mexico, net imigration across the boarder in crappy south western states is near zero; 2) the current legislation proposes that new imigrants need to wait 13 years before becoming legal citizens; 3) workers from Mexico pay social security taxes that they will never see; 4) the millions of illegal imigrants in the US are needed to pick the fruit and vegetables that Sylvia and her racist friends eat. Old people are the ones using up most of the federal budget in the US for their benefits. Sylvia is a prime example of why educated Americans are ignoring the Tea Party and other racist organizations that are dinosaurs.

Net immigration across boarder is near zero because of low birthrate in Mexico. ....what a fuxking idiot. Do you think everyone is as ignorant as you. And your anti racist name tag is an instant giveaway. Another racist who pretends its only whites who are.

"Net Immigration"...are you actually suggesting that people are immigrating FROM the US TO Mexico and Guatemala and Costa Rica and Honduras etc. in numbers anywhere near the steady flow into the US? What flavor is that kool-aid that Big Sis and POTUS are sending you from DC???

"Racist"...the fallback term used when you can't or just won't try to argue the issues with the facts. Do you really believe this name calling tactic is effective with anyone other than the uninformed? If you truly believe in your stated points of view, and are not just regurgitating "talking points", then argue the merits without the childish name calling.

Bravo, Sylvia - you are the only person here doing her homework. It's not about race and it's not about JUST mexicans. It's every person coming here ILLEGALLY from all over the world just to have access to our benefits. The benefits that I worked for and that are taking out of my check will never be seen by ME, but by someone else that didn't work for it. I don't see how it's racist to say that people need to follow the laws that are on the books and not give them benefits once they get here. I'M not allowed to receive benefits and I'm a single mom, although I don't want government assistance, I do want my Social Security that's being taken out of my check every week, to be there for me when I need it. This goes for ALL people who come here and live here, not just illegals.

And to "Anti-Racist from Estes, those old people you're talking about? Yeah, they paid into the system they are getting their benefits from - it's called social security and it was taken out of their paychecks specifically for the purpose they are using it for - is it a racist thing for them to expect that money to be for themselves and not given away to people that didn't earn THEIR money? You have your priorities in the wrong place, dear. And I'm sure that there are plenty of other people besides immigrants that are ready, willing and able to pick fruits and veggies from the farms so they can put food on the table for their families. Matter of fact, I know there are!
