Your little scenario...has nothing to do with what I posted, or with reality at all. But that's your basic Rightie for you....
That's not realty? Then do tell us what reality is. Does Wal-Mart hypnotize people on the street and lead them to the Wal-Mart door? Do they go house to house kidnapping people? Do they confront people and threaten the lives of their family if they don't take a job at Wal-Mart?

Exactly how does it work if what I wrote is not reality?

Congress is "productive" in the same sense that cattle are "productive" of what they used to use as fertilizer for farm crops.
The last time Congress was "productive," the federal government took over one-sixth of our entire economy and millions lost their healthcare insurance. The last time they were productive, we ended up with over 17 trillion in debt.

Guns arent the issue. Chicago has long been an immigrant community. Immigrants, exiled from the economy fight for control of the black market in The mid west. Those gangs and mobs who are the most violent survive. Thats Chicago's legacy with murder and violence. Clevland is/was built the same way
Utter Bull.

Most of the violence that takes place in all cities are drug related. With the exception of a few cities, it has nothing to do with immigrants, it has to do with blacks mostly. The gangs fight for territory which is related to the drugs.

So you've no actual experience of visiting either country. You dont have any idea what those governments are like.
You were creating an image as if you really knew what you dont know?
Is that accurate?
You have to actually visit places to understand what their governments are and the lifestyle people lead? Tell me, when was the last time you were in North Korea?

I do have several associates that are from the former Soviet Union. What they tell me is that the writing is on the wall here in the US, but we don't have the experience to recognize it. They do. They've seen it all before.

It's kind of like the frog that's in the pot of cold water over the stove.

It was passed in the middle of the night with a budget reconciliation stunt.

It will be repealed in the light of day after turning recession to depression.
The typical RWNJ talking points are beyond old. How about something new? Maybe a GOP version. That's right, there isn't one!

WASHINGTON (AP)-- The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including $1 million to workers who owed back taxes, a government investigator said Tuesday.

More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary action in the previous year, including 1,150 who owed back taxes, said a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The bonuses were awarded from October 2010 through December 2012.

George's report said the bonus program doesn't violate federal regulations, but it's inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax laws.

You are full of "[email protected]".

The one thing we can be sure of, xxxpinocchio, as far as the federal government is concerned, they have always been more "productive" then you have, as you haven't lifted a finger for this country, you even wormed your way out of jury duty.

Always fun to see a "parasite" such as you, xxxPinocchio, someone who doesn't work and who collections Section Eight wringing his hands about people less "productive" then you have been since losing your job when Reagan was president.

That;s pure nutball fantasy. At NO point has the federal government "taken over" healthcare.
You're a crazy person.
So who is "fining" citizens for not having healthcare insurance, the insurance company? Who wrote over 33,000 pages of regulations for Commie Care, the insurance companies? Who is creating all the bureaucracies to enforce Commie Care, the insurance companies? Who is overseeing Commie Care, the IRS or the insurance companies?

If that's not government takeover, I sure as hell don't know what is.

Of the 72 bills Oblamer signed into law last year only 16 were originated in the Senate.

Over 200 bills passed by House Republicans in the same year were deemed DOA by dirty Harry Reid and the upper chamber,never even reviewed,let alone brought to the floor for a vote.

Me thinks the Senate has a productivity problem as well.

Why wouldn't corrupt libs think Americans will bust their butts providing for the non productive? We've been doing it for 50 years. In the beginning everyone thought the war on poverty could be won, but there are the same people on the dole today as were there in the 1960s.

In the last 50 years, we've spent over 15 trillion dollars on this so-called war. Our results are not that much different than before this war started. So what did DumBama do? He expanded it.

They aren't made up numbers. I was talking to a Mexican immigrant. She has her own business. She came here at 19 years with her American Husband, pursued citizenship, and paid the thousands of dollars. First when her husband had a slow yeas as a mining engineer she catered at the camp, now they live here in Illinois, own a farm, and she has a business cleaning homes, and Apartments. There is no reason, according to her for anyone not to make money in America. You have to work(gasp). If she gets another contract with another Realtor she can hire 2 more ladies. As I listened to her talk I thought how different her conversation then those of the poor, and unfortunate dragging their butts across the border illegally, looking for a free ride. We need people like her, not the others.
