earlier real world wisdom here: Hunrodr Wrote: For those of us who have had to live with ILLEGALS, reality is all too troubling. They pack 8-15 people into 2 BR apartments...they clean just enuff to live, but not enuff to keep the bugs down...they drink like alcoholics, accost women and act rudely in front of children. A good friend of mine who emigrated here from South America explained the difference between ILLEGALS and legal Hispanics. Legal Hispanics care, they take the time to do it right; they care about family values. ILLEGALS make a wage w/o paying income taxes and send most of their money back across the border. Call me any name you wish...I lived with these people and fixed the apartments they lived in...over and over again.

Loadstar... I call you an 'Honest Man'!!!

I used to own a 'Storm-Chasing' company! All of my workers were self-employed Mexicans!

Most were legal... but I suspect, not all, even though my contracts were explicit, but with Outside Sub-Contractors... you really don't know. This I can say... I saw the way the workers lived and acted... I felt like I was in Mexifornia!

I told my partners I was bowing out and bid them well after one year.... I've seen just what you observed... Didn't like it... even though the money was outrageously good... I still have ethics... That's something lost on most of this country these days!

There will NEVER be race harmony in this nation, ever. Brown people hate whites and they hate this country...not all of course, but the general mindset is such that they think we owe them a living, and most of us are sick of them leeching off of the rest of us.

Sick of how their "culture" has coarsened society and sick of their crime and drugs seeping into our neighborhoods. PC be damned, we have an albatross around our necks; so far it's cost us $19 trillion, and it will only get worse...keep electing dems, and your grandchildren will curse your name.

I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.
