No I was not aware..I'll have to check into that, thanks. And yes, we do need more laws like that. Too long have these people been abusing our system.
"f they were working these jobs they wouldn't need welfare then, right?"
Could you keep a roof over your head, food on the table and clothes on your back for 5.15/hr (Especially if you have a family)?
Welfare would still be needed to some degree... Just not as much.
Try again -
I forgot one thing:
"The fact that they aren't means that they don't want to and no amount of government force isn't going to make them."
They will have no choice. If they want welfare, they MUST work. Otherwise, they are SOL.
The water has now turned to mud -
"Teenagers today are not the same as they were when you were a teenager, and farms cannot rely on teenagers to do the work."
What are you basing this on? Give me some stats -
The Washington Times? That conservative rag? You can't believe anything they say.
Don't forget the very very generous government housing subsidies handed out right and left. Those are a big part of the housing boom here on this part of the border --- another goodie provided by the taxpayers --- the government is practically giving housing away.
That's not my assertion. I did, however, make a guess that the change in teenagers, if true, had something to do with the parents.
Please accept my apologies.
And, I agree with your statement.
Didn't know that one. I'll have to find a new running mate for Tancredo.
All you have to get is that President Bush truly believes in his foolhardy "temporary" amnesty plan.
