I was at a ministorage auction the other day and the subject came up about the new sales tax on auction purchases. I made a comment saying more osama shyt. This guy, standing there not bidding on anything, informed me his feelings were hurt by my comment. I said good....Later, when the auction was over, the owner told me that the tax was a state tax not a federal tax. I said I know, but the yoyo I offended didn't know and took it personal. We laughed about it.....Another uninformed voter.

It IS very scary to listen to some folks calling in on the Washington Journal on C-Span each morning. I am not just ragging on the left, as I think that some on both sides of the aisle need to just stay home.

I was going to complain about the stupid politicians on both sides, then I remembered how they got to their positions, stupid voters....I love all these intellectuals we have on here. I bet these and the ones who call in on C-Span are one in the same.

Of course there are illegal immigrants. A person who had a visa to visit or work in the counrty but has let it lapse is an illegal immigrant.
A person who illegally enters the country is not an illegal immigrant but is an illegal alien.

There are ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS. If the description of their status is shameful and embarrassing THEN BY ALL MEANS--DO THE RIGHT THING--and abide by our country's laws, GO BACK and apply PROPERLY!

The department most associated with Thanksgiving--the U.S. Department of
USDA training:'Pilgrims were illegal aliens'

Agriculture--is training workers to refer to the Pilgrims who celebrated the first Thanksgiving as "illegal aliens."

In a department "cultural sensitivity training" video uncovered and released by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, a diversity trainer is shown saying: "I want you to say that America was founded by outsiders - say that - who are today's insiders, who are very nervous about today's outsiders. I want you to say,'The pilgrims were illegal aliens.' Say,'The pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians."

They are less important. So what if they let their visa expire? The point is they were screened when they first arrived in the country.

The problem with undocumented aliens is they could be pretty much any sort of criminal. Weeding out... is vital to our national security.

Correct, illegals bring in all sorts of diseases and criminal elements to boot. Plus they clog out healthcare, social services, schools, and jails/prisons to no end with nothing in return. They also lower wages to the level that citizens will not do the jobs, like who do you think did them before the illegals?

Many Mexicans have chosen to violate the laws of the US and have entered the country illegally. Some people call them "illegal aliens." Some people call them "undocumented." And some people believe they are the same as every other immigrant who came to the US. Arguing about whether or not to use the term "illegal alien" is fruitless. The solution to solving our so-called immigration problem is to use common sense. Americans belong in the US and Mexicans belong in Mexico. Just like sugar belongs in a sugar bowl and cat shit belongs in a litter box.

remember 9-11 seems the screening process needs improvement so stop it all for 10 to 20 years and give time to get it perfected.

I am sorry but I have freedom of speech, and I don't care who is offended by any words I use. As a matter of fact I am amused by it. So all those illegal aliens, border jumpers, wet backs, whatever can go home now.
