The Immigrant Debate....
When my hubby and I went to Cali, we were driving back from Catalina to LA. All these signs were posted up and down the highway. Stupid me asked my hubby why there weren't cross bridges or something if so many people crossed the road. He politely informed me that they were signs warning you that illegals attempting to cross the border might run out on the highway. Wow! They have to make signs for that crap?
My friend and I got into the debate on the phone about "building a wall" . Me personally, I think it is a stupid idea. Then some old lady/fart, interupted my cell conversation and said "I think its a great idea...they are taking money from us hard working Americans" I politely said "Well your wrong and when were you invited into this conversation!" She kept rambling about her tax dollars... Hey stupid old lady, what about my taxes that pay for your medicare heart medication and your social security? Do you think I will see one freakin' dollar of social security by the time I am your dumb ass wrinkly age? Why can't I invest my social security into a 401k instead? Huh you stupid diaper wearing broad? Tell me that!
I am not saying something doesn't need to be done about illegal immigration, but building a wall in front of Mexico isn't going to stop illegal immigration, and making illegals that are already here pay back taxes in order to get amnesty is stupid too...where are they going to get all that money? Why give them false hope? I just think we need to have a better long term plan that doesn't alienate the United States and that doesn't portray us as people who think we are too good for Mexican's to live here.
And what about my social security???
