"This type of "tree hugging" mentality is the type of plan that will bring down our nation. (a little dramatic, don't you think? Try not listening to Lou Dobbs) We don't have the resources to solve everybody's problem in the world - we barely have enough to solve the problems of the people who live here already"
PROUD to be a tree hugger, thanks for the shout out.
"As i drive to work everyday, i pass by several streets lined with illegal immigrant men who have no work and just stand on the street corner waiting to be picked up for odd jobs if they are lucky. I"m talking about hundreds of these people in a few streets.
If they are lucky to get a job for the day, they get paid cash and of course not tax is paid on that, so they don't the support the social security system that they help drain. But at least they use that money to boost the economy right? Wrong. That money then goes back to the home country and helps the economy there."
And who is paying these men? Your neighbors and mine; apparently no one can pass up cheap labor.
Revdip, how about you start a campaign in your neighborhood, go door to door, and tell your neighbors NOT to hire the cheap laborers?
That might help.
