I didn’t think it worked for me, then BAM, it worked after I closed down the blank page.

Can you maybe right click and save it to the desktop?

Terrific article, Vera…suggesting that these immigrants—even if they are illegal—contribute to the building of our economy and the revitalization of "urban" America and its suburbs.

Knowing this doesn’t automatically change one’s POV on the subject of illegal immigration, but it does add another layer to a very complex, two-sided debate.

Vera, I don’t think anyone here is saying that legal immigration should be ended. This article you posted is focused on economic contribution by LEGAL immigrants. Nobody here is claiming that immigrants make no contributions. What we were talking about are people sneaking in here illegally in the millions.

I’ve still yet to see why importing mass poverty into the country via illegal immigration is good for America.

One more time,

What is good for America doesn’t matter to the people who want the workers at the cheapest possible rate. That means outsourcing or encouraging illegal immigrants to come work for less with the intact infrastructure.

I’ve already known that. The elite are not my friends.

Nope, I tried that already… Then again, this is not the best computer ever, maybe I’ll try at a cafe internet.

Then you might as well give up that dream of ever running for public office.

So why do you choose to vent your frustration on the illegals rather than the perpetrators?

What is it with you, sick? You just keep pounding away with the same old line. Mod and I are venting on illegals, blaming only them. Yeah, maybe we’re murdering them and selling their body parts to corporate medicine.

It’s not about hating or blaming illegals. It’s just that they mistakenly believe that I want to take care of them here and that their presence here is up to them.

I suppose I should be happy you’ve found something to complain about other than Muslims.

Oh, yeah, btw, can you clarify that statement I kindly asked you to?
