Put tolls only at the state borders, the ferry docks (to/from long island), and the driveways of the indian casinos (if they have enough $$$ to gamble with then they have enough to pay a toll with - in AND out of the property).

Excellent idea!

The traffic was bad enough when we left Ct .Bringing tolls to your highways will just create more. Then instead of fixing the roads and bridges they will use the money for something else and the potholes and the bridges which need repair will stay the same..

I think I just saw you go by- was that you in the pimped-out purple Buick with the giant chromed spinner wheels? You could do us all a favor by turning that rap music way down.

I'd like to see Klansmen at the borders relieving all their 'pent-up aggression' on the illegal invaders. Something climbs over the fence? Hit it HARD, throw it back.

We have a group of people in this country that don't have to follow the law.
People that come here illegally . It's about the tax payers having to pay for healthcare. It's not our job to provide them with healthcare.

Part of the problem is that SOME individuals (no offense intended) persist in referring to them as "people".

When an individual deliberately flouts the law (how ever lax and deliberately unenforced it is) for its own benefit and to the detriment of others, it should be considered as vermin. F**k religion and all that "my brother's keeper" crap - something that imposes itself upon me knowing that I can't refuse to support it (just TRY to stop paying your taxes and see what the 'government' does to you) deserves nothing but all the enmity I can muster.

Those things have no 'right' to my labor or my profit from it. I may CHOOSE to support the needs of others, but DAMN a government that FORCES me to do so against my will.

I have a right to keep the profits of my labors and use it as I desire. Everyone else has the same right regarding themselves. A right is something that doesn't cost anyone else money. I can have sympathy and compassion for those who wish for help out of their need, and damn-to-death those vermin who expect it and demand it of me.

_I_ want the country better, and leftists _are_ ruining it _now_ by letting the illegals in.

Agnes had nothing to do with a situation like this one of illegal invaders piling themselves upon another nation's public systems. And she's dead, so that's the end of her.

Nope: I don't love freeloaders - mexico is picking them up at ONE border and shipping them to the OTHER border, WHY don't they settle in mexico instead of coming here? Answering my own question: because the mexicans aren't taking their sh!t whereas the US _is_. They're coming here looking for handouts and the leftists are giving it to them.

Ever hear the advice about why you don't feed the raccoons in your backyard every night?
