Absof***inglutley! It's about time this candy ass generation, the first one in human history that doesn't know what it's like to have a real ass whoopin, realised that their world and their surroundings wasn't built by self serving slobs parked in front of a computer all day.

It's time for them to actually sweat, bleed & contribute something to f#cking society! Little bastards..

Maybe they can use their Spare Time to write their Congress Folks and THANK them for the many thousands of ADDITIONAL H-1B approved each year to go along with the hundred of thousands already approve so people from other countries can come to the USA and take JOBS USA CITIZENS would have been hired for..

Course they can also thank their Congress Folks for making sure there is NO METHOD to insure that ANY of the people from other countries granted a
H-1B or ANY VISA ever leaves when- if their Visas Expires but can remain in the USA performing JOBS with little chance of the LAW being enforced and them being deported.

While they are at it they can THANK their Congress People for all the TAX BREAKS Companies/Corporations were granted to move their Factories Etc to other Countries PLUS plus doing everything possible to make it as easy as possible to OURSOURCE Jobs to other countries.

Now if they happen not to have College Degrees and are high School Drop Outs then they can thank Their Congress People and Bush for Millions of Un-Educated Illegal Aliens who just walked across our open Borders to take low paid jobs and later to take higher paid jobs in Construction and on and on replacing USA High School and TWO year Trade School Graduates.

When they get enough of it ---maybe they will learn to VOTE to insure THEIR interest is taken in to consideration!!!!!

I don't know what the big fuss is, I'm doing fine.

You people need to stop whining. Go to graduate school, do a few internships, meet as many people as you can, and you will be fine. And you won't have to compete for shit-jobs with illiterate foreigners.

The lie has been haded down to them that hard work and education = success. The truth is that hard work and education = wage slavery, unless you have the connections to get you into that cushy job, by being born into the right family, and following the right beliefs.
I completely disagree with your post. Yes, it's hard getting ahead, but you can make it. Just look at Oprah Winfrey. A black woman...

The liberals have been pushing class warfare and regional conflict and racial conflict and religious conflict and every split they could find to exploit in America to divide the country and weaken American values and beliefs. The dictatorship by liberals relies on divisiveness. So far, you're falling for it - fool that you are.

It's never one group, the "liberals," the "conservatives," etc. Your problems can't be reduced to one cause, the world is too complicated.

Not all would agree "American values and beliefs" have been weakened, whatever the hell those things are. Unless you're referring to the concept of the "free market," which I would agree has been proven false.

Let's be honest about this. The Senate Judiciary Committee amnesty proposal is in effect an amnesty for the criminal employers who have been avoiding employer sanctions since the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). IRCA was America 's last failed attempt at granting amnesty to criminal aliens to stem the tide of illegal immigration. The border security and employer (of illegal alien) sanction provision of IRCA were not enforced. So after eliminating the 3.5 million illegal aliens in the United States via the 1986 amnesty, the number of illegal aliens has swollen to 12 to 20 million in 20 years. Why? Because our government did not secure our borders and enforce employer sanctions as promised in the IRCA.

The Government Accounting Office (GAO) report dated March 6th, 2006 concludes that the agency that would be in charge of the proposed amnesty of 2006, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, is incapable of administering and enforcing the new amnesty, therefore condemning the proposed 2006 amnesty to failure from the start.

28% of prisoners in federal prisons are illegal aliens, according the United States Justice Department. Not all of those 12 to 20 million illegal aliens have come to America to work. Some have come to commit crimes.

Only 5% of those surveyed by the Pew Hispanic Center in December 2005, who have been in the U.S. for two years or less, were unemployed while still in Mexico. Unemployment plays a minimal role in motivating workers from Mexico to migrate to the U.S.

Very amusing post. I see a stroke in your near future. Start taking the low-strength aspirin now...

A few questions come to mind: Is your head full of rocks? Or are you Rip Van Winkle, and you've been asleep for the last 8 years? Or are both true?

Regarding divisiveness - pot, meet kettle.
