Why Has Immigration Shifted?

The biggest impedance to upward mobility is the modern welfare state, which gives people the means to subsist without struggle. Like a butterfly that is assisted out of it's cocoon, swollen and unable to fly, those brought up on government assistance lack the skills and more importantly, the motivation to do anything to improve their lot except complain about how bad their lot is. Hispanics have another impediment in that they do not learn to speak English proficiently. Even many second and third generation Hispanic Americans live in a linguistic world half way between English and Spanish. Unable to speak either language well, they mix them, going back and forth as their lack of a well rounded vocabulary in either language demands. This has a strong negative impact on their ability to earn a living, as they are limited to working with or for only those that share their cultural heritage.
Why limit yourself to six?
Unfortunately Derek's argument is pointless. When was the last time Republicans voted in block opposing an Obama Supreme court appointee? How would voting for squishy pro-amnesty Republicans be any better than voting for Democrats? When things go south (as they undoubtedly will) who do you blame?
Because appearances are so much more important than reality.

I'm going to sound like Hillary, but what difference does it make. Vote for a Democrat, or vote for a Republican, that does everything Obama wants anyway (i.e. John Boehner). If it weren't for the pressure from the very conservative wing of the republican caucus, Nancy Pelosi might as well be in charge of the house, in fact she thinks she still calls the shots anyway.

Maybe instead of term limits, they could have lifetime campaign spending limits. Once the limit has been hit, they can no longer run for office of any kind.
How can anyone believe a word this woman says? If her medical records were made public they would probably indicate that she never had an abortion, or that there was nothing wrong with the babies. Such are the liberties that she takes with her personal narrative.
That was a Biblical response? I agree that what she said made no sense, but what portion of the Bible was being referenced by the response?
She should know. It looks like she's "fallen down the stairs" a few times.
