I know it still has a lot of pesky words, but maybe this is something you can grasp.
And here's some of my previous post broken down into Jorge-size bits:
George Bush try make 245i amnesty.
George Bush succeed make amnesty for Central Americans.
Bush spokeswoman say new Amnesty like old. Old for millions.
And just one link for you today: Adult Literacy
So when's this current "wave", started by Ted Kennedy's 1965 Immigration Act, going to end? When will our foreign-born and their progeny assimilate to the point where the English language spreads here instead of retreats? When will we be able to expect to find more, not fewer, areas with first-world American levels of public safety, schooling, and healthcare? When will we no longer "need" racial preferences for our largest immigrant group?
The answer, we both know, is "never", because this immigration wave will never end, at least not as long as we have self-interested leaders like Clinton and Bush, who ignore the problem, or even accelerate it by encouraging violations of the few laws we have. So this first ever endless wave, will in all likelihood, be the country's last and final immigration wave - because with no brake on the process, we face an inevitable de-facto merger, first with Mexico, and then with the world (If you think your Pedro didn't like living in a society of crooked cops and raped wives -just wait until we all have to).
So, it's more than just a fiscal issue (which btw, is worse than your figures, because of immigrated poverty's concentrated & devastating effects in certain regions). It's about language, culture and sovereignty - and not recreating third world miseries in our only home, just so certain business can pay world wages, and certain politicians can pander to voting blocks (that will kill their party in the long run).
Oh - and last I checked, the communists were keeping people in, while free countries and peoples have always used the means at their disposal to keep hostile invasions out.
America has always had immigration and it always will. I shouldn't have to tell an America this, but evedently the schools no longer teach history. You are having a problem because you have no understanding of American history. You forget the Pollacks, Chinks, Hebs, and Wops who couldn't speak english yet came to America. The first generation rarely speaks English the second generation learns it in American schools. That is the way it always happens. That is the way it happens for Mexican families. You probably do not know this because you don't like Mexicans and you don't know any Mexican families.
I am glad I do not live in the cold cynical little world you live in. In my America things are getting better and better. Certainly it is often 2 steps forward and one step back, but it is getting better.
In 2001 for the first time in a long time my government confiscated less taxes from the American people then the year before. With 2 tax cut since then, the government will continue to take less and less from me. AFDC is no longer an entitlement and children are growing up in families where they can see that their parents actually work. Certainly unemployment is higher today than a few years ago but in the 1970's it was double digit. Dubya and the pubbies are attacking the problem of schools with choice programs. Sadly, the damage is already done for people like yourself, but fortunately the internet is informing people better than schools ever did. There is hope for you dagnabitt, but you have to take the first step and open your eyes and ears, so you can gather the information necessary to start thinking for yourself.
You want to talk about an attack on American culture? How about gangster rap ebonics. That's not coming from Mexico or Africa. It's coming from AMERICANS in AMERICA's inner cities and from liberal AMERICAN university professors who teach it. The gang-bangers in our inner cities are not fresh off the boat. They were born here. Almost all our problems are homegrown and not imported.
Most conservatives believe in self reliance not pointing fingers at others. Hate does not equal conservatism
Ask for your money back from that community college. We have not always had massive or even significant immigration. In fact America used to have waves of immigration. Waves with a start, middle and end. Between the waves, as I mentioned in that post you couldnt understand, we used to have periods of assimilation (In the 30s we even had net emigration).
You forget the Pollacks, Chinks, Hebs, and Wops
Ah racist, the go-to argument for liberals and the PC crowd.
You probably do not know this because you don't like Mexicans and you don't know any Mexican families.
Its probable that Ive forgotten more about Mexico and Mexicans than you know. I grew up in Southern California (back when English would get you by everywhere) I will be in Mexico on Tuesday for business, Ive been an exchange student in Mexico, I have/have had Hispanic friends, girlfriends, etc, etc. The fact that I may like much of what is Mexico and Mexican, however, has nothing to do with whether I believe, as you do, that its good public policy for the United States to merge itself with that country and society.
What can I say Once-ler? - other than I guess Im sorry I dont buy into your various emotion-driven arguments or your emotion-driven ideology, liberalism.
