What annoys me most about this article is Mike Schmuckabee. This hypocritical "reverend" thinks nothing about trying to dehumanize a segment of people. This soft-spoken, grinning reactionary is one of God's biggest mistakes.

Geraldo needs the publicity and the money someone's giving him. He's a phony and a failure in his industry.

The ones in my neighborhood who sell drugs and run drop houses for more illegals make lots of money and drive nice new vehicles. They like to live high, but, of course, none of their income is taxed - or legally obtained.

He (Geraldo) is the rope.

Michael Moore: You know, I've often thought it's very ironic that I'm able to do all this and yet what am I on? I'm on networks. I'm distributed by studios that are owned by large corporate entities. Now, why would they put me out there when I am opposed to everything that they stand for? And I spend my time on their dime opposing what they believe in. Well, it's because they don't believe in anything. They put me on there because they know that there's millions of people that want to see my film or watch the TV show, and so they're gonna make money. And I've been able to get my stuff out there because I'm driving my truck through this incredible flaw in capitalism, the greed flaw. The thing that says that the rich man will sell you the rope to hang himself with if he thinks he make a buck off it. Well, I'm the rope. I hope. I'm part of the rope. And they also believe that when people watch my stuff, or maybe watch this film, or whatever, they think that, you know, they'll watch this and they won't do anything because we've done such a good job of numbing their minds and dumbing them down, you know. People aren't gonna leave the couch and go an do something political. They're convinced of that. I'm convinced of the opposite. I'm convinced that a few people are gonna leave this movie theatre or get up off the couch and go and do something, anything, to get this world back in our hands.--from "The Corporation" (2003)

Another disingenuous answer from the left. Everybody knows that leftwing cronie capitalists make huge profits by using slave laborers who are here illegally...it is modern day slavery committed by hypocrite leftists. Everybody also knows that liberal big government also profits enormously by misappropriating tax dollars to illegal in the form of government services and entitlements...liberals in government profit in the form of money as well as power.

Sounds like the exact liberal nonsense i just mentioned. Liberal Government is the ultimate corporation...screwing every last man, woman and child out of not just their money...but their freedom their prosperity...even their health and security. Obama is the CEO and his product is the destruction of your future and the future of your children.

Have you questioned them about the legality of their status? Or is that your assumption based on your profiling?

There are many Mexicans in our area. I cannot distinguish those who are here legally from those who are not. What I can see from my own observation is that most of them are working their asses off to try to support themselves and their children.

Let me begin my reply by saying that you are a partisan knucklehead. Show me any evidence at all that "crony capitalists" are primarily left wing.
Also show me who "everyone" are, referring to your spurious claim about "liberal big government".

The original questioner asked me what personal financial profit I get from illegal immigrants. My original answer was "zero". I would never hire anyone without offering them at least minimum wage, and probably more than that. Don't blame Liberals for the immigration problem inflicted on poor Mexican people by machinations between the Mexican government and corporate America.

Once again, how do you know who are here illegally from those who are not? And how do you know who owns the pickup trucks?
Also, my cell phone costs less than a third of what you say these people own. Did you get a closeup look?

Many Mexicans who are here as legally as yourself (I assume) have contributed to our society and have achieved success, deservedly so. They have as much right to own pickup trucks and cell phones as anyone else.
