I watched Obama's African wife speak at the Big Democrat convention tonight. She said she had toured the country and listened to people. Big Teachers are high paid taxpayer supported Government agents. I understood her to say that one of the things she heard was that Big teachers telling her they would be willing to volunteer to teach even if they weren't being paid if that would help children learn. Perhaps she could find a few of them and send them to California. It might save the State from bankruptcy.

No New Taxes

You can't import an underclass in significant numbers without raising taxes, since they will lean on social, city, state, and federal services, while not paying adequately for it's maintenance and expansion.

Let's look at some basic scenarios, so the math doesn't elude anyone. Let's say Juan makes it over the border, and a few years later, commits a felony. Running Juan through our judicial system, from the cops who nab him, to the court attorney assigned to him, to the judge that convicts him, will run taxpayers over 100K. Then his incarceration, say for 10 years, will run taxpayers 500K. Let's tack on 100K for assorted medical care, and processing him back out into the street, still unassimilated and illegal. Add that all up, and that's quite a tax burdon for a group of other illegals to pay via taxes.

One more: Let's look at Maria. She's an illegal who had kidney failure, and managed to make it across the border, and into the first hospital she could find. Dialysis, and a donor kidney will be, conservatively, at least 500K. A sum she will never pay back. Not a penny. That's why when a citizen goes to a hospital, the bill is 50 times more than one might consider somewhat reasonable. This is paid by taxpayers, and higher insurance premiums.

So we have two illegal aliens alone, who have run up over a million dollars in tax deficits, to be paid presumably by taxpayers, in the form of significant city, state, and federal tax increases.

This isn't about Juan and Maria just looking for a little higher pay by working out in the strawberry fields. This is an onslaught of an invading country, cherry-picking our jobs (construction, meat processing, child-care, the list goes on and on) without adding much to the tax base, since a lot of it is off the books, while depleting basic services.

Since none of the Unions spoke out, or swung their weight around the last 20 years of this attack from a neighboring country, two words for you: Eff You.

Now you lose your jobs. Good luck looking for jobs in construction, waitresing, any fast food operation, grocery stores, house-cleaning, child care. Those are closed off to you. Get on unemployment and watch the clock as your time runs out.

You deserve it.

As far as new taxes, traditionally Americans worth his/her salt would rather "scuttle the ship" than hand it over to the victors.

Now is no different.

Scuttle this ship. Put the victors into a state of panic. Let some of THEM stress out for a change. Let this state devolve into Mexico.


New taxes are "bail buckets" for a sinking ship. The only beneficiaries are illegals, their families, and some rich white people who get a lot of low-cost services and healthcare for their illegal alien indentured servants.

Most are democrats, and their love of slavery runs deep in their psyche. They can't help themselves, they must exploit the flesh of other men. Alway have, always will.

No new taxes. Let the broken-down slaveship sink, in memory and respect of the United States of America.

Voting for new taxes is like trying to stop your crazy spouse from abusing credit cards by upping her credit limit.
