Wow! Does this prove my point or what? There are just some people that refuse to work or do anything for themselves if they can get somebody else to do it for them.

Like California?

Fifty-seven percent of Mexican immigrants on welfare.

"The document breaks down the immigrant families by country of origin and gives specific types of welfare and percentages of the families that used it in 2010. An average fewer than 23 percent of native households use some type of “welfare” which is specifically defined in the study. 36 percent of households headed by immigrants use some type of welfare. Families headed by immigrants from specific countries or areas of the world range from just over 6 percent for those immigrants from Great Britain to more than 57 percent of those from Mexico using some type of welfare.

This comprehensive study suggests there are approximately 40 million immigrants in the United States of which more than a 25 percent of that number, and the largest overall group, originate from Mexico."

Ha Ha Ha. Yeah right. Sweetheart, modern-day Georgia plantation owners will never go back to the state Georgia was in before the 1980s-90s when huuuge numbers of Asian/Hispanic immigrants came to show them and other racial groups how to work for a living. Ouch!
They will have to or go out of business. They use to pick cotton by hand too. Necessary is the mother of invention.

Baby, how long ago was that?
"One of the big talking points that pro-immigration groups make is that our food prices would be much higher if the US did not tolerate the flow of illegal immigrants into the country to work in agriculture. They argue that no American would do the work the illegal immigrants do for the wages they make. It is a myth.

First of all, agriculture is not a labor intensive business. The US supplies all the food it needs, plus exports billion of dollars to other countries, using very few people. In 1870, between 70% and 80% of the US population worked in agriculture. Today, less than 1% of the population works in agriculture. At last count there were only 821,000 people in the US employed in agriculture. This is out of a total civilian workforce of 153,904,000. There are 312,000,000 people in the US and these 821,000 workers produce enough to feed everybody, plus export food to the rest of the world. By 2018, agricultural employment in the US is expected to decrease to 804,400, even though the US population will be increasing."

Less than two, yes, two percent of the wetbax work on farms. Two percent! They would have us believe they all work like slaves in the cotton fields. I see wetbax at McDonalds and burger king, at five guys, at tire stores selling not putting them on cars. I saw a family, a family of wetbax buying ipads at an apple store. Four iPads. These lying, cheating scum are taking jobs from Americans, not just on farms or construction.
NV has the highest percentage of illegal aliens working in the country. I live in Las Vegas and there are no farms here, where do you think they are working. No wonder Harry Reid voted against E-Verify and SAVE.

This is part of the entitlement mindset. The agriculture industry has been violating the law for years and when they are finally told that they will no longer be able to violate the law so that they can under pay their labor and avoid complying with regulations that other industries and honest farmers comply with they expect that the tax payer will cover the costs.
I know about entitlement mindset and in agriculture I have seen a real shortage of workers. If we could have these workers on a temporary basis with the farms paying for their needs like the bracero programs, then that would be great.

This is why I did not vote for Obama. Romney would have at least given business the confidence to invest and expand. Obama right or wrong has an image as unfriendly to business and lacking economic skills. Just like congress business will remain stagnant as long as Obama is in power unless he can do something to change his image.
I know what you mean, but Obama fooled a whole bunch of people and tried to get people to believe that Romney would not understand them. Obama did so much class warfare that all he did was divide the country for the worst. Obama is bad for business with cap and trade plus all the EPA regulations to take down businesses. Obama played to his special interest groups.

When the US Constitution is completely dissolved an replaced with sharia law, I'm wondering if the dumb, ignorant, blind and government dependent democrats will still be idolizing the black sheep?

I have never before voted for a Republican president and I don't like Romney but just like those who vote to extended their unemployment, increased entitlements for themselves or for people who share their ethnic background to be able to ignore immigration laws I voted for a better economy which is in my best interest and that of my children and grandchildren. I have no problem with gay marriage and while I do not approve of abortion I also do not approve of the government telling anybody what medical procedure they can have, even an abortion. Right now the most important issue even though politicians on both sides try to ignore it is the economy. Obama has shown that he has no intention of doing anything to help the economy or increase employment and until his anti business administration is gone we will continue in this recession or even move into a full blown depression.

Why is it you wetbax think that the economy will collapse without greasers to clean our toilets, bus our I tables and cut lawns? Don't you think you have somewhat of an inflated opinion of your worth? Here's the truth...you are unskilled, uneducated, baby spewing human garbage and you will never never become citizens. Just remember, white men will sit back patiently before they act but when they do they are merciless toward people of color...blacks, Indians, Chinese immigrants, Vietnamese, Koreans and of course the japs. Watch your brown asses, you scum.the day of reckoning is coming.
It's not the toilet cleaning we need them for it's produce picking.
This where the problems will show up.
By August 2013, Farmers will be loosing billions because the farm workers will not be able to come into GA to work.
You know any white guys looking for work in the fields?
Hell, black guys won't do it either.
Be careful what you wish for fool,'cause you just might get it.

Whereas that is good, we should be open to having temporary programs that increase employment for non-Americans during harvest time like the Bracero programs. That has the proper amount of people to harvest, but does not encourage illegal immigration which the taxpayer supports. Translation the farmer provides for the workers and they do not stay in America sucking all the jobs as well as resources.
thats the thing "temp workers" meaning they leave the very minute the season is over. not like now where they never leave and start reproducing causing hardship to all around them.
at one time these folks worked and left never asking or expecting more than a paycheck. back then a simple call would have border patrol swooping.

now if states are like ca,train these folks to do other work leaving the farmers calling for more,even pay them to go to school on our dime.

"These lying, cheating scum are taking jobs from Americans" Are you native American?
Native Americans are nowadays no the only true Americans. Plus Native Americans did not have any immigration laws then and they lost much of the land during the many wars / skirmishes with all the different group from the Mexica people on down to the present day Americans. Was I right? Well, that is historical debate.

So, "These lying, cheating scum are taking jobs from Americans" are illegal foreign nationals that are taking jobs from Americans of all races especially Latino-Americans. I hope that helps you out.

I agree it does not have to be a Republican or Democrat thing, but the Democrats in power seem to pander for the Latino vote. They should be supporting Americans of all races, not pandering to get votes.

Reid has been anti-American for years and he is so far up the Union bosses derrieres that we do not know where they end and he begins. Reid would never be for E-Verify and SAVE because that would violate & delete half of SEIU's union rolls as they are illegal aliens, right? I mean if it was not for the unions Reid would have been canned and thrown out the last election.

I think the best thing that the House Republicans have done is force the Senate Democrats to make a budget or they don't get paid. Fantastic! At that point Democrats have to show their hand and the deficits are killing our country for the future. You are right that the differences in social politics like abortion should not be debated now as the real problem is how far Obama is willing to destroy our country's business climate and put up his socialist agenda.
