It was the Democrats that said amnesty would be the end of illegal immigration in 1986 so it is relevent that they are now going back on what they said at the expense of the hard working middle class. The millionaires and billionaires don't pay near as low of a rate as the poor I am talking about. The poor I am talking about pay nothing yet still get a tax refund. As for lavish lifestyles, lets take Michelle Obama's trip to Paris where she flew 41 armored limo's along with over 140 secret service members and she booked an entire 5 star hotel for a week and shut down one of the most expensive boutiques in the city so she could shop. That's just one of a million others that I could list. I'm an Independent. Benghazi was case closed and we found out that Obama slept through it, literally. If the Treyvon Martin case had been handled at the local level, as it should have, then Obama wouldn't have even known about it so there could have been no ridicule. Your right, the country IS changing.....for the worse.
Let me start by stating once again this is not 1986 so get out of that time period. This is 2013 and fact is Republicans input a piece of legislation that has no successful way for legal immigration to work and effectively killed the immigration bill. The poor you are talking about are the working poor who still contribute through their taxes and receive a refund of almost 100% of what they did pay in; however, nothing is 100% and they still wind up contributing no matter how you cut it. You still have no response to the millions of billionaires and millionaires who abuse the tax system to pay a lower marginal tax rate than most of these working poor and effectively wind up taking BILLIONS out of the economy that they would otherwise have to pay in. One Billionaire can work the system to receive more back than 1 million working poor. So what is the solution to that you may ask? Cut the tax loopholes that most of these "rich" parasites like to use. You say Mrs. Obama took 41 armored vehicles and over 100 secret service and booked an entire 5 star hotel and shut down an expensive boutique? When did this happen? LOL. Fact is that the numbers you have and information you were provided were badly skewed just like your thoughts and sources that you derive these inconceivable comments from. My advice would be to stop listening to your friends and actually learn something about what is going on. "Laura Bush took vacations without her husband each year of George W. Bush’s presidency, traveling with her Secret Service detail on a government plane to meet friends for camping in national parks. But that never generated as much furor, in part because vacationing in the United States is not as politically delicate for American leaders and their families as doing so in foreign countries." List the million others so that I can tell you how badly wrong you are. Please do. Bush spent more than 1/3 of his time away from the white house on vacation. So who was not doing their job and taking vacations? Benghazi should have never been derived as a scandal because after the fact it not only made your party look childish but also anyone who believed it, mainly you and the base. The case was a national statement as far as the Treyvon Martin case goes, and everyone knew about it before it even left the local level so your thought process there is just as backwards as the rest of your thinking. You may view it as a change for the worse, but who can blame you. Your business is failing, profits are lost, no one wants to work for you, and everyone around you seems to be unemployed or headed that way. Dignity and a little self motivation would go a long way with you and your friends; however, you guys would have nothing to complain about if you had any.

What does skin color have to do with it? Oh, that's right, your a liberal. One of the strongest liberal platforms is to keep America in the dark ages by keeping up the perception that there is still rampant racism in this country. It is the single greatest hurdle that blacks have to overcome in order to see the truth that MAYBE only 10% of the people in this country have some level of racism in them while the other 90% let actions speak louder than anything else. Problem is that liberals convince blacks in this country to do whatever it takes to stay on the government dole and when whites view those actions as despicable, liberals are the first to point the finger and scream "YOUR RACIST!". So the perception is that there are 10% of whites that are not racist and 90% that are. Since those blacks have put all their efforts into staying on the dole, and not improving themselves, they don't have the education or the will to see that giving everyone an equal chance would, in essence, end liberalism as we know it. Liberals like you are comfortable knowing the truth but willingly keeping up the lie so the agenda to kill the freest country this world has ever known stays alive and well.

You clearly only listen to the headlines. If the unemployment is getting better then why do we have the lowest participation rate in our history? How could so many people not even try looking for a job if things are so wonderful? You OBVIOUSLY haven't studied why and how America was founded. Not a clue. You have no idea how much compassion I have or don't have. You're simply mad because I call out your president on his America-killing agenda so it comes out as incoherent rage against me. Until you get more educated on what you speak of, I'm not going to waste my time with you.
You clearly only listen to Right wing propaganda. I have showed you the net gain in jobs, Not gross gain, NET GAIN under this President.

But yet you keep bringing this, labor participation rate, is the cause not knowing you are shooting yourself in the foot with that excuse.

I know that is over your head, so I will explain briefly.

As I have told you before, the labor participation rate has been dropping since the Clinton years.

If the participation rate, is causing the UE rate to be artificially low today,(as you protest) the unemployment rate President Obama inherited would have been higher than reported when he took office.

All the Democratic presidents created 28 million jobs? They have created twice that many welfare recipients. If I were a Democrat, I would have egg on my face, but with your McD's employment, you should know eggs.

Most people consider food stamps, aid to dependent children, free medical, free telephone, subsidized rent and whatever else you are getting off the government to be welfare. Naming your McRib sandwich didn't make it real ribs, renaming give away programs doesn't change it's nature.

28 million times 2 would be about 56 million correct?

That's funny, there are only 46,700,000 total number of Americans on food stamps, and dropping. What happen to the other 9 million Welfare people.

Not much at math either are you?

So you label any program you wish, as you wish and call it welfare to make it fit your agenda. You are just a clever little rascal.

If 1986 wasn't touted as the say-all and end-all to illegal immigration then it would'nt matter. But it was so it DOES matter whether or not you want to admit it. The poor I'm talking about only contribute sales tax dollars because they don't get a paycheck since they don't have a job. Since the same tax breaks are available to every American though some don't set themselves up to take advantage of them, I am interested as to what you think the tax structure for millionaires and billionaires should be? Ms. Bush had been taking those vacations for 15 years and simply continued them. Besides, you are concentrating on the number of vacations and I'm concentrating on the cost. Bush spent more time away from Washington but the vast majority of that was at home. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't consider going home to be a vacation and home is where Bush spent most of his time away from Washington. The economy tanked under Bush in 2007 so he was in office for 7 years before that happened and that's why no one says much about his vacation (except liberals) and not because he vacationed here in America. Obama on the other hand has spent far more money on far more lavish vacations in times that are far worse than when Bush was president. BTW Ms. Obama's vacation was in 2009 (you know, when things were so bad because of Bush's policies). I already told you my business is quite healthy. Why are you so angry at everything? If things are going so well, as you say, you should be overflowing with happiness to the point that you can't contain it. What went wrong? I'm happy and my life is good, even though we have a president that's destroying our country. It's just wierd that you so agree with the job Obama is doing yet you seem so unhappy. Doesn't match up.

Not exactly, the labor rate increased in consecutive years from 2003-2006 (Half of the Bush presidency). It wasn't until 2007 that it began to drop and has continued to do so under Obama. Discount it if you wish but the jobs market isn't healthy at all. The vast majority of the jobs being offered are part time and the greatest percentage of those taking those jobs are more than likely the people who's unemployment benefits have run out leaving them with no income.
