THE PARACHUTE


An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.
The first passenger, Holly Madison said, "I have my own reality show and I am the smartest and
prettiest woman at Playboy, so Americans don't want me to die." She took the first pack and
jumped out of the plane.

The second passenger, John McCain, said, "I'm a Senator, and a decorated war hero from
an elite Navy unit from the United States of America." So he grabbed the second pack and jumped.

The third passenger, Barack Obama said, "I am the President of the United States and I am
the smartest ever in the history of our country, some even call me the 'Anointed One.'" So he
grabbed the pack next to him and jumped out.

The fourth passenger, Billy Graham said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl,
"I have lived a full life and served my God the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have
the last parachute."

The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr. Graham. There's a parachute left for you.
America`s smartest President took my schoolbag.

Your example is stupid.

I don't have to respect someone to have the common curtesy to let them have my seat if I feel they would be more comfortable sitting instead of standing. I'd do that for an old person or a young person or a man or a woman.

But harassing citizens just because they happen to have the same skin color or ethnic background as most illegals IS a violation of their civil rights.

Our "illegal alien mess" is just an excuse for many bigots to harass all hispanics, whether they're citizens or not.
Our "illegal alien mess" is the result of Hispanic Americans supporting Amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and turning a blind eye to their being here!

Actually I have, and they're not that much different from our own now.

In 2011 they passed immigration reform which grants all immigrants- regardless of status- the right to access education & healthcare services, the right to due process, and takes into account the promotion of family unity.
In addition, immigration officials are the only ones who can enforce immigration laws- i.e. investigate illegals, detain, process, deport, etc. The federal or local police can only act against crimes not related to the immigration violation unless specifically authorized by the immigration officials. They can't conduct raids is shelters which offer humanitarian aid to migrants- legal or otherwise.
In other words, illegal immigrants in Mexico are treated pretty much like they are here.
Kudos,I have to give you a heads up on this one. I wasn't aware that Mexico had done that.

Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits

Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:17 PM

By James Walsh

On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury's inspector general for tax
administration issued a startling report entitled "Individuals Who Are Not
Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable
Credits."

No wonder the nation's finances are in turmoil.

******It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with
fraudulent data.******

The Treasury report found that "One common type of
fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement
(Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund."

Loophole!

Yesterday, Members of the House Ways & Means Committee voted 22-12 to stop
the IRS from giving refundable tax credits to illegal aliens.

Last year, the Inspector General for the U.S. Treasury Department released a
report revealing that illegal aliens annually receive $4.2 billion in
refundable tax credits, primarily through the Additional Child Tax Credit
(ACTC).

The Ways and Means Committee voted to close this tax credit loophole by
requiring that individuals who claim the ACTC provide a valid Social
Security Number (SSN), based on language introduced by Rep. Sam Johnson
(R-TX). Currently, the IRS only requires applicants for the ACTC to provide
an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), which the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) indiscriminately hands out to illegal aliens.

The legislation was part of a budget reconciliation proposal that now goes
to the House Budget Committee for inclusion in a larger package aimed at
saving tax-payer dollars.

FAIR thanks the following Ways and Means Committee Members who voted to
close the loophole:

"REPUBLICANS"

Chairman David Camp (R-MI) Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-PA)
Rep. Wally Herger (R-CA) Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)
Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL)
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE)
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL)
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS)
Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH) Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN)
Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY) Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX)
Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA) Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND)
Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) Rep. Diane Black (R-TN)
Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY)

******Members who voted against closing the loophole include:******


"DEMOCRATS"

Rep. Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) Rep. Mike Thompson,(D-CA)
Rep. Fortney Pete Stark,(D-CA) Rep. John B. Larson,(D-CT)
Rep. Jim McDermott,(D-WA) Rep. Ron Kind,(D-WI)
Rep. John Lewis,(D-GA) Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr.,(D-NJ)
Rep. Richard E. Neal,(D-MA) Rep. Shelley Berkley,(D-NV)
Rep. Lloyd Doggett,(D-TX) Rep. Joseph Crowley,(D-NY)

I don't think "amnesty" will pass. Instead, they will come up with a plan to have a lot more of those "illegals" come here legally to work- probably through some sort of work visa.

That way, businesses can hire as many as they need, but when business is slow, they can get rid of them easily.

I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer like you say. but I do know that in the last 15+ years, no further amnesty was approved by congress.
so that must mean that the "majority" of citizens of the usa do not approve of immigration reform. right?
quit smoking pot, and you would realize this.
As I said to the other guy, the people that matter don't want "amnesty," they want access to cheap and plentiful workers, and that is what they will get.

Essentially, the current "illegals" will be given work permits to work as long as they are needed, then when business slows down, they will be terminated.

Remember, the people that matter on this issue are rich Republicans. They don't want "amnesty," but they do want ready access to cheap labor.

BTW, I don't use drugs. I have never even tried marijuana. I spent 30+ years as a military officer, and the military kinda frowns on drug use.

It really is the best illegal aliens can hope for.I've always said it, If they do the jobs we don't want to do,why legalize them?

"The survey, conducted between March 6 and 10, was based on 4,465 Spanish and English telephone interviews with adults."

That small amount of Americans doesn't mean sh!t. I never take a poll to heart. Let's have a nation wide vote on it and then see what happens.
