This is the Dumbocrats logic.

(CNN) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday strongly defended her party's support of the federal food stamp program - a day after former Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich argued that GOP candidates should use the growing number of people on food stamps against Democrats on the campaign trail.
At a press conference in her home town of San Francisco, Pelosi explained that the program's multiplier effect –the amount of money generated in the local economy as the result of the subsidy– far exceeds the nearly $60 billion spent this year by the federal government and is a sure-fire way to stimulate the economy. For every dollar a person receives in food stamps, Pelosi said that $1.79 is put back into the economy. The U.S. Department of Agriculture cites an even higher figure of $1.84.

"It is the biggest bang for the buck when you do food stamps and unemployment insurance. The biggest bang for the buck," she said.

This guy is a Gov. of a state he has no power. He should be more afraid than anyone. California will be the first state they flood. BTW, they are flooding it already. Any amnesty and watch California go down faster than a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader.

You're wrong. There's citizens of Mexican ancestry that abhor the illegal immigrants and are concerned about their futures. What's your terminology for them? Are they racists?

Jerry Brown has always drawn favorability in California. Ya'll need to remember, Cali is liberal country so someone like Brown would be a favorite.

His pro-amnesty approach will ensure him and the Democratic party many years of votes. Too bad the Republican party is too stupid to not pick up on this instead of "pretending" like they hate illegals as the Republican control of Congress under Bush is a manifest proof that Republicans love illegals & will not do anything about illegal immigration.

If they want a liberal, fine, but the least they can do is to find one who doesn't have fried eggs for brains. Somebody needs to find a way to help get the people off of the welfare teat. I read that although the state is beautiful, it's the worst state in which to do business. Brown will only make it worse. "The state accounts for one-third of America’s welfare recipients, though it only contains one-eighth of the population, and there’s no good reason for it." That's staggering. Arnold was a joke, no doubt about it, but is Brown going to fix anything?

I would bet my life that he's probably never even been to Africa. So why are you telling him to go "back?" Because he's black? And the same can't be said for illegal immigrants. To be considered illegally in this country, they obviously came from some place else. Would you want them to go "back" too?

I have been to alot of countries but never to Africa, the closest i have been is Saudi Arabia.
He's just mad because illegal aliens are trashing California and anywhere else they live. They come here from 3rd world crap countries and bring with them their crime, corruption and cultures. They think that once they cross the border they are now somehow respectful, but their cultures betrays them.

"Anyone understand why Mexicans fail miserably at creating a successful civilization? Ever wonder why millions of them invade the United States in search of a better life? Have you noticed that once they arrive, they create the same kind of 'society' in the United States? Unconsciously, they create the same conditions they left behind."

You're kidding, right?

Sure there are some jobs that require that you be bilingual, but the overwhelming majority of jobs do NOT require that you speak Spanish.

I live in San Antonio, which is far more "Hispanic" than Houston (Houston is majority NON Hispanic), and there are plenty of jobs that don't require Spanish.

If someone is telling you that you can't get a job without being able to speak Spanish, they are lying to you.

Maybe your relatives just don't want you around, so they made up some line of bull to keep you away?

URGENT, URGENT, URGENT!!!!

CALL OR EMAIL YOUR SENATORS ASAP

This is what I emailed

Do not cave in to Senator Harry Reid on any Cloture Vote rule changes. It is imperative that you know that if you vote with the Democrats to get rid of or change the cloture rules I am going to hold you personally responsible for any reprehensible and disgusting legislation the Democrats get passed thanks to his capitulation. Stand up and tell Harry Reid NO on any Rule Changes designed to pass legislation like Amnesty for illegal aliens and other bills opposed by most Americans!"

WE ARE IN FOR THE FIGHT OF OUR LIVES. PLEASE ACT!!

I support H.R.140 – Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011, and am tracking it using OpenCongress.org , the free public resource website for government transparency and accountability.
Funny how so many do NOT want entitlement cuts, yet support illegal aliens. Why do you not care??
American Kids, Through No Fault Of Their Own
Education cuts, higher price of groceries, cuts to entitlements could all be avoided IF our government followed our Immigration Laws. Not only do we the consumer pay the price, but our American children, Through No Fault Of Their Own are also paying the price! How dare you or any elected official hand over amnesty when you’ve done nothing to seal our borders or put an end to the abuse of Birthright Citizenship!
I’ve had the opportunity to speak with cashiers at WalMart who see so much WIC & Food Stamp fraud by illegal aliens; we consumers are paying the higher prices to make up for their theft.
Food Stamps & WIC allow certain products, brands and quantities yet, Mexicans take more or non-approved items on WIC & Food Stamps, hold up grocery lines knowing Management will “Let them have it”.
One Mexican woman was making a scene, screaming at the cashier “Just give it to me” when denied the items not approved through Food Stamps! WE consumers pay the price difference with higher prices. Off to the money center, sending their money to Mexico! I know some whites, blacks & asians abuse the system, however Mexicans appear to be the worst!
Cash back on the Food Stamp Card, using to purchase cigarettes & alcohol. Why does do states allow this?
Go to WalMart or retailers where the low income shop, talk to; employees who can tell you so many stories, how they watch the abuses while making low wages, trying to support their American children without entitlements! Many have said they were indifferent to the illegals until being on the front lines, seeing all their theft & abuse,
Unless you are a renter in this area, you have no clue how hard it has become to find ‘decent’ affordable housing as so many illegals are taking them up! I rented from one landlord who told me he had to replace the flooring (Now using cheap paneling) after having rented to Mexicans as they ripped up nice expensive hardwood floors, took it with them after they were evicted for NOT paying their rent. Working retail has provided me with the opportunity to speak with many who have told me similar horror stories, forcing we renters to pay higher rent and deposits. Not only do the Mexicans tear out flooring, they take ceiling fans, bathroom cabinets, etc. The Maintenance Man where I rent told me they hate renting to them as they always pay their 1st month rent and deposit, then wait to be evicted paying no more rent while trashing the apt. This in turn is hurting Americans as we NOW must pay higher deposits as well as has had an effect on the price of rent.
When does KS become CA?? I’ve also been informed by more than one illegal alien they are now migrating here from CA as we have jobs and affordable housing!
Americans should be your 1st priority, not the Business Coalitions and their needed election donations! Who would have ever thought our Government would care so little about Americans that they’ve allowed some cities to be hijacked by Mexicans, forcing Americans to learn Spanish if they want jobs?
Turning your backs on the theft by illegal aliens is creating a breeding ground for racism and hatred of Mexicans as you’ve chose them over your own low to middle class constituents. I’ve spoke with city utility workers who confirm what i’ve seen, more and more apartments are being vacated by native born Americans as many illegals are taking them over! I’ve caught more than one messing with water meters, why???
