I like your style dfwDude. I had begun to wonder what had happened to America. How can the election get stolen right before our eyes? I have watched Illinois Democrats steal elections, but this, this was something. This is an example of Teachers Union producing the half-witted.
This is my opinion as well. He's got it right.

Sounds like somebody spends a lot of time glued to FOX News. Good for you.

They seldom mention it on air, but you should remember that FOX news is not American owned. Do you really think a Saudi Prince and an Australian porn merchant care about our best interests? Do you think there may be a chance that they just rile people up for their own profit? If not check out their pro-Islamic channels in the middle east or their pro Communist channels in China. Same company. Very different spin depending on where the business unit is located.

Not everyone who finds Obama an incompetemt boob watches T V for their news. You can hear the President speak in many places. You can read his books, or even follow him in the newspappers. Either he is a total incompetent, or he is purposely trying to destroy America. He is a muslim who chooses Islam over America every time.

Comprehensive reform on ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION should include the fact many ILLEGAL aliens and/or immigrants are committing CRIME other than just crossing the border ILLEGALLY. Anytime they fillout official paperwork they more than likely have committed CRIMINAL FRAUD and/or making false statements.

The point should be made that using false documentation and/or making false statements on official paper is CRIMINAL FRAUD. If an ILLEGAL alien is using a stolen social security number or drivers license that IS A CRIME. Just like a US Citizen would be charged with criminal fraud or identity theft so should the ILLEGAL ALIEN including using and/or recieving stolen property ie someone elses ss number, name, address etc. If an ILLEGAL ALIEN says they are a permenant resident, citizen etc they are making false statements.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION is NOT a victimless crime nor is it as innocent as many would leave you to believe. Throw in all the stuff an employer of illegal immigrants AND illegal labor does ie not paying taxes,workmens comp, ss etc you have even more snowballing CRIMINAL activity.

It is not just a matter of undocumented workers.

They are competing with us for Christmas? Seriously? They are going to take away Christmas?
Next time you are driving around Utah and see one of those good white people, try asking them about their thoughts on Christmas. In particular ask about the Immaculate Conception and if Mary was indeed a virgin. You may be surprised to learn that the Mexicans you disdain have more in common with you than the Mormons.
In Utah we have several charities including Angel Tree's and sub-for Santa. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. The food pantry's, Catholic charities and every other charity in Utah is mainly listed in the Newspapers. They aren't shy about who get's Christmas's payed for. The LDS Faith also allows it's members to buy toys and clothing for Latino's. They Love Utah. My sister did sub for Santa several years in a row. When she brought toys and food to the family. Not knowing they were illegals. They complained about not getting extra hams. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. It's always about the poor migrant's needs first.And no need to be insulting.

Sorry to come off as insulting. I was just thrown to hear illegal immigrants were taking Christmas away from us.

It is strange and disheartening when you do charity work and people question it. How did your sister know the people who asked about hams were illegal?

They attended a Church in their area. They were brought to Utah by the Mormon Church, and given homes and job's. Utah is a Sanctuary city. The father had been in Construction in Caliente Mexico. .

<quoted text>so I guess We should just pass amnesty because it will make you happy ha?
Happy that they all come out of hiding and pay taxes as I do? You're damn right! Happy that they pay a fine and get on the road toward legalization? You better believe it! Happy that jobs will be applied for the way you and I must apply, versus hiding out in a back room where everything is hush hush and wages are in cash so there's no paper trail, you best believe it!

Did you read the whole article dumbazz?
"Republican leaders, mindful of the electorate’s demographic changes, now say they’re willing to discuss some type of path to legalization for some of the estimated 11 million people who are living in the United States illegally."
There's an estimated 11 million of these low lifes and they can't find 7,500 of them that want to do the farm labor. LOL!!! The farmers cry about this every f-ing year. Looks like the illegals don't want to do the work either, Azzhole!!!
No they can't find 7500 Americans to apply for the positions in NC and SC, low lives too? Or American supremacists? How do immigrants end up being "low lives" but Americans who won't work are "good"? Oh, they collect welfare, oh I get it now!

I have read all of Obama's books. He ran for Illinois Senate before he ran for President. The paperback of Audacity of Hope is in the library. Check out page 261 to see about his loyalty to the Unied States. He is a muslim who will lways choose Islam over the United States. I will be an interesting 4 years. By then no one will want to be president of a 3rd world America. It will be like a Jungle.

That's pretty funny. When you Google the words Audacity of Hope P 261 you are taken to wing nut websites that reference supposedly scandalous stuff on P 261.

That is probably enough to fool the rubes, but believe it or not you can go to the Amazon website and read P 261 for yourself. Let me know when you get to the part about him being a "Muslim who will always chose Islam over the US".

First of all it isn't the book. It is page 261 in the newly released paperback copy. Do you comprehend English? Then it will be easy for you to understand. Why would you let Google explain it to you when all you have to do is go to the library, and look it up yourself? He wll chose Islam over everything else, and has on numerous occasions in the last 4 years. Oh, that's rght, you only get spoon fed news. Too bad.
