Have you ever seen the border? Any part of the border? Do you have any idea how much land mass we are talking about there and how much effort and money it would cost to seal the border? It's nearly 2000 miles long and by some estimates, it would cost more than 30 billion and that is just building. It doesn't cover the cost of maintaining it or guarding it.

How about we just come up with a realistic immigration policy that is not based on whether or not someone speaks English or any other road blocks that republicans keep throwing up instead of just jumping to the sensational conclusion that we have to build a fence?

Or how about we make Mexico share the responsibility for keeping their citizens out of our country by limiting trade and tourism with them until they comply?

You're just worried about it because you know it doesn't take a genius to lean on that shovel of yours all day long. Mexicans would do it better and cheaper than you ever could.

Seal the border? What are we, Berlin in 1958? There are exponentially FEWER border crossing under Obama compared to the war criminal, and far higher deportations. Stop calling yourself a democrat. You know no facts and don't read. Democrats do both.

How about stopping trade a tourism and trade until they comply. How about we stop Nafta with them until they comply. How about shooting the drug mules as the cross the border. How about we stop the human trafficking they are involved in at the border. How about we stop giving Mexico money and forgiving the debt with them. How about we help them stop the drug cartels in Mexico whether they want our help or not. How about we send the CIA to infiltrate the drug gangs in Mexico and take out the leaders of the drug cartels. Build a wall and fence to keep the immigrants from sneaking across the border. How about having an immigration policy that rewards those who come here the right way and punish those who don't. How about when we arrest these morons when they are drunk and driving without a license and doing other crimes we don't catch and release them. How about we honor the immigration laws we now have. Oh and that fence you don't want to put up, would cost a lot of money but it would save us a lot of money in the long run. How about we stop calling these people undocumented immigrants and calling them what they are illegal aliens. How about we stop all of this political correctness crap and get serious about follow the laws that.are already on the books.

You know why there is less now? BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET A DAMN JOB HERE. BECAUSE OUR ECONOMY SUCKS. Most come here to work and when there is no work it normally slows down.

Obama has stiffened border security. Coupled with an economy that Bush gave us through unfunded tax cuts for billionaires and trillions on a Chinese credit card, it's definitely slowed. But that doesn't explain why Obama is deporting more.

While you dumb tea baggers worry about illegal aliens, you let the real problems fall through your hands. GOP policies protect the rich and expose the poor. One in 4 US children are hungry. We have more gun murders than all the other modern countries combined. We have 40 million people who can't get healthcare in the richest country in the world. Illegal aliens simply aren't a big issue. They're a tangent that republicans give to tea baggers so they won't complain when IBM pays no corporate income tax. And you fall for it. Just like food stamps. They don't want you to know that 92 percent of recipients have jobs but just don't make enough. They don't want you to know that their little drug testing program was a failure and embarrassent. They want you to force your anger downward, at the poor,m not upwards at the rich, where it'll actually make a difference. And as always, they say - you do.

The problem is people believe that money I'd finite and not infinite. The better the economy the more money in the economy. The rich don't have to pay more taxes to better the economy. There needs to be a livable wage law that puts people that work in a livable wage bracket and wage increases according to COLI (cost of living Index.)
Don't touch the way people are taxed until the economy is strong and thriving. Oh no that is a democrat response. But that is what I believe. Businesses that talk this bull crap that it will put them out of business, I say bull crap. Because they will do what it takes to stay in business. So I don't always agree with the republican platform. I think American worker does not get paid for there value. Then these businesses that close plants and other types of business don't allow them to import one thing from the country they move to.

<quoted text>
Well, Delusion, since you think you've somehow managed to avoid eating cancer, maybe you need to tell us WHY.
I never claimed to have avoided eating cancer causing foods, that's impossible from where I live. I just want you to get upset or in the least seemed shocked about it. Let's start with this as being a "real" issue. The food we are eating gives us cancer!!!! This is scary, it's not some coincidence. They know GMO/aspartame/ect. causes cancer...there are studies that show it...so why does the FDA still pass it as safe for human consumption??

Other countries won't accept American food because it is poison.

Doesn't this freak you out? There is something seriously wrong with society...

He wouldn't know why. If the government really was feeding it's country cancer to kill and keep down the population for instance, that is Ludacris. For one, it costs the government MILLIONS of dollars to pay for medical treatment for cancer patients. Which for the theory I just brought up- if the government is killing/ it's people with cancer, they are not very smart, now are they? This is just a conspiracy theory.
I think he meant how not why. Anyhow, are you denying that the food Americans typically eat causes cancer?? Because it does. Why is this?

Maybe a bunch of mad scientists got together and wanted to start genetically mutating plants and experimenting with poisonous chemicals to see what kind of "flavors" they could create...

Maybe there's no evil people in the world who would like to see the demise of humanity...let's assume there's not and that our government is looking out for us...

So why then are we still eating cancerous substances? If the government wants to lower health care costs shouldn't the FDA step in and do their job? Why isn't that happening?

Aspartame hasn't been used in decades. Foods don't cause cancer. Certain chemicals in high quantities increase the likelihood of cancers. Every country on the planet would swap with us in a heartbeat. We have the safest and most abundant food system in the history of man. People make bad choices and eat too many processed foods. Processing adds chemicals and all of those chemicals will cause negative health effects if consumed too heavily.

Harvey - we can't compete with other countries because our workers make far too much. It would be great to say "everybody gets a living wage by law," but that's not capitalism. That's socialism. We need to put a 40 percent tarrif on any luxury product imported. Period. If Apple wants to ship their $500 iPhones here from China, fine. But it'll be a $750 iPhone. And an American manufacturer will beat them at that price. If we drastically increase wages and do nothing to entice them to stay, they'll leave more than they already have. We also must end the untaxed overseas profits. These are American companies because they HAVE to be American companies. Their profits must come here be taxed here and invested here. Don't like that and you're gonna move your HQ to Paris? Go ahead. Just don't forget you won't be able to sell to Americans without that tariff. The American consumer is the greatest economical force in the world. We need to flex our muscles for a change.

Also another lie that Obama has told, that we would never have boots on the ground in Syria. According to a report, Israel and the US are already planning a scenario of putting boots on the ground of securing chemical sites in Syria. The planning of it is proof of one of his lies. Just watch and see what happens in Syria. Also this didn't come from Fox. It came from one of those left wing news networks. I bet you can't guess which ones.


yep, he's all ready given the "rebels" weapons.

Next thing ya know he'll be breaking another promise and start killing American citizens with drones, legally, via NDAA....which, he promised he would never sign in the first place.

That added would also work. The only point that I was making was companies that leave the US to get the $1 and hour employee the product should stay the price as if they where here in the US. So that keeps the product in competition with American companies. Then people won't choose foreign made products over American products because of price. So that would give these companies to either stay here or other companies that stay here would expand to make up the difference when the other companies leave. The companies that stay here should be rewarded for staying in the USA.

Also aspartame is still in diet sodas and in other foods. Someone earlier said that it wasn't being used anymore. That's dead wrong. I was just told by my doctor to stop drinking diet coke because it was causing my kidneys to fail. He told me that it was because of the aspartame in the diet soda. It was also causing nerve damage in my hands and feet.

I'm sorry, you're right. I was thinking of Saccharin - it is gone. Aspartame isn't used as much as generic form phenylketonurics these days though. It's much safer. But they, like all synthetic food additives, can cause negative health effects. You couldn't drink enough diet soda to have an effect on your kidneys though. That's assuming you're otherwise healthy. Banana's pottassium is harder on your renal system than today's artificial sweetners. But like I said, it's the chemicals that cause the problems, not the food.

I couldn't agree more with what you said about American workers and rewarding companies who stay.
