Prohibition didn't work on alcohol, it won't work on mj. The government makes more money out of penalizing it than the would legalizing it.  (Sep 3, 2010 | post #1)

Toni, here's my wild prediction. Obama will try to pass 'comprehensive reform' down our throats in say, August or September. When that fails he will use parlamentary procedures to circumvent the constitution. Mass civil unrest from the citizenry follows..he declares martial law and suspends the elections indefinitely. A perfect coup! Here's hoping I'm completely wrong, but you never know with this administration.  (May 24, 2010 | post #6350)

Arizona's New Immigration Law Drawing Outrage, Support

Tim, Thanks for the welcome! I've lived in Elgin, then Hanover Park now Streamwood. 'Nuff said? Here's a little nugget from Mexico's immigration laws: -The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” But if WE get upset about the change in OUR 'equilibrium of national demographics', we're the racists!!! How about this from the same law: – If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” Now the open border's crowd try to convince us of how 'immigrants' (they conveniently lump LEGAL & ILLEGAL together) benefit our economy. Facts are hard things to argue with if you're in that group, others of us know the true impact of illegal immigration. And how about that line regarding contempt of national sovereignity and security! What absolute utter gall Calderone has to lecture us on ANYTHING! See you on the boards!

2) Illegal immigrants rarely have insurance so most must use the Emergency room at your hospitals even for non-emergencies, causing hospitals to raise their cost or close entirely making a trip to the hospital more expensive due to increased insurance cost. When figuring out the increased cost it is necessary to add increased gas cost that is required when getting medical care because the nearest hospital is no longer near. 3) Since most employers require proof of residency ie Social Security Cards there are businesses selling social security numbers at an average cost of $2,000 per number. At least that was the cost 4 years ago the last time I had a direct quote. The social security numbers come from Identity theft from living and dead people causing increased burden on law enforcement and destroying lives of honest law abiding people who's IDs has been stolen. No way of knowing how this effects actual people on Social Security. Many use these same Social Security numbers to apply for welfare which increases the amount spent on providing welfare causing government spending to continue to rise. 4)Many illegal immigrants drive without insurance or even a legal drivers license, causing increased cost of auto insurance even in states like Georgia that requires all drivers living in Georgia to have auto insurance. When all of that is considered the cost for the $1.50 a head of lettuce is way more than $1.50. There are better ways to address the illegal immigrant population than a fence across Arizona and California but until the true cost of these guest workers are factored in and made public our politicians will never have a backbone enough to address these issues. Gov. Jan Brewer did. VIVA ARIZONA!!!  (May 23, 2010 | post #318)

Some in Cicero take issue with flying of Mexican flag in ...

In a perfect world, I would rather have NO criminals, but that's not possible. So in this case I would "rather" have AMERICAN CITIZENS commiting crimes than IMPORTING crime from a 3rd world country. WE HAVE ENOUGH OF OUR OWN CRIMINALS....H0W 'BOUT YOU?? But you're immediately draw to the name calling. You studied well under MeCHA and La Raza, didn't you?

Many illegal immigrants live in public housing

UNDER MEXICO’S IMMIGRATION LAW (GENERAL LAW ON POPULATION): [1][3] Mexico’s Immigration Law (General Law on Population) 1999 • Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society: - Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32) - Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34) Here's the one I love the MOST!!! - Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37) "If their presence upsets "the equilibrium of the national demographics" ... Gosh, that sounds quite racist to me! They want to preserve their "national demographics?! " So do I!!!!!!!!!!! Imagine that!  (May 23, 2010 | post #6347)

JDl talks about Arizona's new law...but what about Israel...

http://www.adl.org / ADL expressed profound disappointment with Governor Jan Brewer's decision to sign what is now the harshest state immigration law in the country. However.... New immigration policy may limit automatic Israeli citizenship to Jews By: israelinsider staff and partners Published: May 11, 2005 The most far-reaching proposal would prevent automatic citizenship for children of Israelis if the children were not born in Israel, or if only one parent is Israeli. Among the proposed formulas under consideration is denying citizenship procedures to illegal aliens, and imposing criteria such as income, age and affiliation to Israel for citizenship applications, including foreign spouses of Israelis. So we MUST grant citizenship to children of illegal immigrants But Israel is exempt from this. The law is the law is the law...unless you're illegal or Jewish??  (Apr 28, 2010 | post #1)

Illegal immigration in Arizona: The wrong target

HAHA..how many cars in AZ have tinted windows so you can't even see who's driving? (we have this problem in Illinois, too.) Right wing conspiracy is right. If it were white males near a black church that had been burned, wouldn't they be justified in pulling them over and questioning them? I have to show my ID for everything and it is a law (since 1950 something) that if you are here on a visa, whatever, you are required to carry your papers with you always. If I were in a foreign country I would have to carry y papers with me. Why do these 'latinos' feel they are above the law. Are they unaware of Mexico's immigration laws? They are MUCH MORE STRINGENT than ours. Hipocrates.  (Apr 28, 2010 | post #95)

Lawmaker wants to bring Arizona immigration law to Utah

http://www.usembas sy-mexico.gov/eng/ faqs.html What other information should you know about driving your car in Mexico? 1. You must have these documents with you while driving: TEMPORARY IMPORT PERMIT, VEHICLE RETURN PROMISE AGREEMENT, Tourist Card (FMT or FME), Your Driver's License, Proof of Citizenship. IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not leave any documents in your unattended vehicle. Mexico requires it but decries the US from doing the same! Go figure.  (Apr 27, 2010 | post #12)

Arizona's New Immigration Law Drawing Outrage, Support

Well I expected the usual left wing whining about this bill, and I was right. There is not one single aspect of this bill that is not in compliance with both the Arizona Constitution and the US Constitution. READ THE BILL, the police can’t just randomly pick a person off the street and ask for their immigration docs, there must be a reason for them to interact with a person to start with, like a traffic stop, or accident, or other reasons. There is no difference in this than a cop asking for your drivers license when they pull you over, and if they have reason to suspect you are a foreign national, to ask for your passport or green card or other immigration docs, which by US LAW a foreign nation is required to carry AT ALL TIMES, this is reciprocal with all other countries, if you are a US citizen abroad, you MUST carry your passport & visa docs with you AT ALL TIMES, and if you get caught without them, you are subject to jail time and deportation, the laws are the same here. The state of Arizona is just going to start enforcing already existing Federal laws, and for those that don’t like it they are welcome to return home or move to another state. And it still boils down to the plain and simple fact being an ILLEGAL ALIEN IS STILL ILLEGAL.  (Apr 27, 2010 | post #170)

Congress may push immigration over climate bill

The Obamanation will force amnesty down our throats in, say August - Sept. We will repel. Amnesty will be forced down our throats and when we rebel (as is necessary and required), Obama will declare a "National Emergency". Martial law will be declared. Elections will be put on hold. Demoncrats will be in control (forever if they belive that) and the end of the U.S. as we know it begins. Obama and the liberal demoncrats hate Patriots for this very reason. Your vote is still the most powerful voice in the world. Make it heard!  (Apr 22, 2010 | post #89)
