Re: Fox News Watchers,

Fools. Fox News breaks and brings to the surface more criminality than the Attorney General of United States. Until their stories quit uncovering MASSIVE cover ups by the criminal Democrats at every level of Politics, I'll keep watching.

Everybody in the United States that want's to keep this country free should be giving money to Freedom Works and the Tea Party. They are the only group of people capable of changing this mess for the better. They are the only two political entities I give to.

Re: Fox News Watchers,

You know, Timinator, I've found you so well-versed on history and politics and current affairs, I might just change my mind and become a Fox News watcher exclusively. You, sir, are the living proof I needed. Blurry face and all.

Re: Fox News Watchers,

I know Mepps1, your insight into so many issues has changed my life too! I read your emotional based posts daily so I know how to feel that day. I've learned to ignore facts and focus on just emotion. I feel you man!

I pay you a generous complement, and you return it with sarcasm?

Re: Fox News Watchers,

An influx of low skilled workers while simultaneously trying to mandate ludicrously high minimum wage laws and overly generous welfare is a recipe for economic disaster.

I agree in regard to welfare. I agree in principle on minimum wage. But one of the very few good things about inflation is that it has made minimum wage more or less irrelevant.

Even Mexicans won't work for $7.50. Not anywhere I've worked, at least. Further south, this may not be as true.

People say immigrants lower the price of labor. No doubt this is true, but I'm not sure why this is necessarily bad. After all, if prices are lowered, even poor people can afford more goods and services. This is, after all, America, and no one is bound to work in any one trade if prices become lower than rates they care to match.

There's good and bad with any group of people. I don't claim to have all the answers for the border. But I don't think anyone is about to succeed in keeping all those people out. Frankly, I'm not sure we ought to. Why shouldn't Mexicans or Guatemalans be able to come here if they are willing and able to support themselves? Is it really so bad to have more roofers, more laborers, more nannies, and more farm help? I've never been anywhere there wasn't more work than there was people available to do it.

Eliminate welfare and most of the problems will go away. We don't have an immigration problem. We have an idiotic policy problem. And Republicans are no more likely to take on the real problems than Democrats.

Trouble is that many of our cities will burn when the dole stops. Oh, well. It never could go on forever.

But yes, minimum wage is an idiotic policy. If it raised enough to become relevant, it essentially outlaws jobs.

Re: Fox News Watchers,

The problem with minimum wage is that you cannot arbitrarily dictate the value of labor. Sorry bit flipping burgers or picking strawberries isn't worth $15 per hr in value to a company. Since it isn't worth the cost an employer just won't hire that worker. And, as you stated, eliminates the low pay, low skill employment that entry level and uneducated, low skill wage earners need.

We can all agree that overly generous welfare is a disaster.

As for border control, I think we need to streamline the process for immigration and crack down on anyone who employs illegal labor. Either illegal immigrants or otherwise. It is pretty obvious we cannot stop the tide of iimmigrants. The least we can do is try and integrate most into society. Having a shadow class of people who live outside the law is dangerous for our economy as well as the immigrants themselves.

Re: Fox News Watchers,

There should be no streamlining of the immigration process unless they are well educated and can prove it. I can't agree with anybody that taking in millions of people every year with 2nd grade educations who don't speak our language at all OR their own language with any degree of proficiency is in any way good for our country or it's people. This is just a plan for democrats to get more control over more of our money and economy as well as new voters to replace the stupid Americans that are finally pulling their head out of their......

The problem is with these other countries leaders. We need to apply massive pressure and start deporting every illegal and charging these countries every dollar we spend in doing so. Stop foreign aid to every South American country until this stops and they start policing their own people.

There should be no minimum wage, if their is, it should be just a few dollars. Minimum wage was never suppose to be a living wage. One of the reasons we have so many unemployed and unqualified workers without jobs is because Democrats keep raising the minimum wage. Again, Democrats trying to control the economy.

Goodness gracious! I just realized...... All this time I thought that when people in Mexico couldn't understand me, it was because my Spanish was atrocious. But now, since you pointed it out, I realize that it was because they couldn't speak Spanish. It all makes so much sense now!

Our own Federales can't even keep the illegals out. How , precisely, do you propose to round up 10 or 20 million people and ship them out?

Folks,

This is your brain on FOX.

Don't let it happen to people you love! Remember, it's never too early to talk to your kids about network news.

Re: Fox News Watchers,

PRS (Problem, Reaction, Solution) The agenda has been kicked into high gear due to the ruling class being afraid that they're losing the information war.

One aspect of the Problem being intentionally created: Massive influx of children Immigrants being shipped deep into the US, creating strain on the resources (School, welfare, etc.) in an already strained economy (created by corrupt monetary policy). Also creating more people to vote on entitlement programs.
Counties/States getting on the fed dole come under control of the fed due to the attached nefarious purse strings.

The Reacton: People outraged at the austerity measures, clamor for gov't solution.

The Solution: The unification of North America. The destruction of borders, soverignty, bye bye USA. All under one gov't rule and the elimination of your 2nd amendment rights.

Agenda completed...and is the stepping stone to the final agenda of one world gov't.
The evidence is overwhelming.

White House Dictates: $3.8 Billion Needed To Stem The Surge Of Immigrants
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-0...rge-immigrants

Quote:
At almost double the $2 billion that many had expected, The Washington Post reports that The White House will request $3.8 billion from Congress in emergency funding to deal with an influx of unaccompanied minors from Central America. Funds would be allocated to send more immigration judges to the southern border, build additional detention facilities and add border patrol agents, to help stem the recent surge of women and children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras...
Who do you think created this "emergency"??
