Then, why don't you call them by their proper name:

Native Americans.

the bottom line is that real americans means the native american population. it doesnt include the immigrants or their descendants.
Well said that person!!!!!
And you could have likened the attitudes displayed in 1930's/40's Germany toward Jews too. But those behaviours you mention, which are despised by the modern day Americans, are the same behaviours that traditional islam forces upon its own people and its women. A bangladeshi girl was whipped to death - because she was raped!!!!
Gay people are executed....thieves have their hands chopped off....and people are still (however rarely) stoned to death.
The rest of the world has changed. Instead of proclaiming how wonderful islam is, try pressing for change. Because one way or the other, islam will change...freely, or by force, but it WILL change.

Just as there has not been a Republican Mayor in Chicago for 78 years using the Chicago way, there will not be a Republican President ever again. what is going to happen
then is that the idlers will soon get so much stuff, and there are so few working to take care of them their political system will collapse. Then we can start all over..

Its not so simple. People only need to eat, dress and live in a house/appartment. Anything else is secondary. Or tertiary, actually. Countries like the USA, Canada, etc... we have about 75 % of workers working in the tertiary domain. Working in the tertiary domain is a luxury ; we just give each other fancy, unimportant stuff, like providing someone with technical internet help by phone, then going to a restaurant and have someone else cook a supper for you.

A ''collapse'' simply means that folks working in the tertiary domain would have to shift to the primary or secondary domain, and of course, with every discovery in technology, we are able to produce more for less. Pretty much, your ''collapse'' would be at worse, more fat and handicapped people on the welfare, old people getting huge pension cuts and the average american cooking their own food.

So yeah, only more welfare ahead of your country, ironically.

When people have the option to work, or get money, and things free, and n,ot work guess what they choose? At some point you have more people not woking then working, and no one to take up the slack. Many people today are asking themselves if it is worth it to get up, go to work, pay taxes only to have the Government use the money to buy votes. We are not helping these people enabling them to idle their lives away. What use are they to society? A temporary problem in your life is one thing, laying around like a pimple on society for generations, is quite another.

You dont get much while on the welfare. A real solution would be to pay workers a higher salary to motivate more people to work. Unfortunately, our governments are too cheap for that.

I think they should require everyone on welfare to do something - I don't care if its sweeping sidewalks. They could be put to work with the public works dept - rake leaves, shovel snow, sweep sidewalks, pull weeds - if they're miserable enough doing those jobs, they'll look for work.

"(Reuters)- Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother of five, was found bludgeoned to death in her home in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon, home to a large Arab-American population, and died of her injuries several days later.
A threatening note found at the scene suggested Alawadi might have been targeted because of her ethnicity. In a sign of how closely the case was being watched, the U.S. State Department expressed condolences for her death, and Iraqi government officials attended her funeral in Iraq.
But while police at the time said they were considering hate as a motive, they warned against definitively drawing such a conclusion. Court papers filed in the case later painted a portrait of a family in turmoil.
"There was not somebody running around doing hate crimes. This was a domestic violence incident," El Cajon Police Chief Jim Redman told a news conference to announce the arrest.
San Diego County jail records show that Alawadi's husband, 48-year-old Kassim Alhimidi, was arrested by police on Thursday evening for first degree murder, and was being held without bail.
According to a search warrant affidavit filed in April, a relative of Alawadi told detectives that Alawadi had "been planning on divorcing her husband and moving to the state of Texas." Divorce papers were found in her car.
El Cajon is in the heart of East San Diego County, which is home to the second largest Iraqi community in the United States, behind Detroit. More than half of El Cajon's 100,000 residents are of Middle Eastern descent."

Of course when this example of islamic savagery was still being touted as a "hate crime" it was on the front page. Now that the truth is revealed....it is only a footnote on page 10.

Good idea. They should also have to pass drug screening.

Immigrants to the West should be ineligible for welfare, employment, health care, education, housing, driver's licenses.....If we take the incentives away, perhaps these filthy, third-world beggars will stay in their own dirty little countries.

Islam and the koran should be outlawed in Western nations. Islam makes nazism look like the Salvation Army.

I dont agree with forcing welfare people to work. Welfare is a last resort for when you re out of work. Although I do agree with immigrants having to work for their money. They can always go back to their country if they arent happy.

Helping a fellow country men in need is a good thing
Allowing someone from another country to come and suck the welfare is absurd.

Yes it is, but allowing a fellow countryman/woman to live on benefits as a life choice is what is getting to those that work and pay their taxes.

Why should a girl have multiple babies just to get a council house and to live off the income that is generated by those children with no intention of ever working.
Why should tax payers have to put up with lifestyle choice people coming and breaking into our houses just to feed their habits and allow them to keep living off the state.

That is where people like me get annoyed.
There is nothing wrong with helping someone that is down on their luck through no choice of their own, and I will happily pay my taxes without complaint to help such as those that can't help their situation.

Back on topic, why should we pay welfare to those immigrants that come to the west from their backward, Islamic countries only to have them complain about our society and in some cases plot against us and our way of life.

I read about that and was wondering if they ever arrested the husband. Thx. When a man's religion and culture gives him the 'right' to beat his wife - he should always be the top suspect Good work El Cajon police department

The public would be helping - by providing a 'state' job. What's a welfare recipient going to do all day? Watch TV? Around here they seem to watch tv, play video games, and get their nails and hair done. What's wrong with getting up every day and have something to do? I get up everyday and go to work and help provide money through welfare by paying taxes. Of course, we have to help those who are truely disabled but disabled has to be very tightly defined. For example; someone who can't walk could stuff envelopes for a government agency of some type. People feel better about themselves when they have something to do
