Yeah - back when we had 4.5% unemployment. Things were terrible back in those days - I couldn't go anywhere without somebody offering me a job! Went to buy socks in a store, and the manager came out to offer me a job - just because I was clean and polite! Now that the Democrats are winning elections, we have alot more ' free time ', since we don't have jobs to go to!

Republicans seem to grasp that they had better soften their hard line unless they want to forfeit any hope with Latinos and Asian-Americans.

Both sides also agree that a balanced, two-part approach is in order: stricter enforcement and improved border security on one hand and a pathway to legalization on the other. It's an excellent plan -- except for that first part.

To say we need more enforcement to seal the border is...
