Let's not fall or this Democrat trap. If you are a proud Republican, you do NOT apologize for Republicans' acceptance of Koch money, and you don't attach Dems for accepting it either. To do so is to fall for the bait that Dems want us to take. There is absolutely nothing wrong with accepting private campaign contributions, whether you're a Democrat or Republican, because it is an expression of free speech. Period.
So, people who are amoral have some kind of genetic issue that causes them to make lots of money? What kind of ridiculous argument are you trying to make?

What in GOD's name does this mean? Can you just sit back and think about your posts for a minute before you hit the return button? My goodness, this is just drivel.

I don't know this to be true. You SEE more illegal aliens on the side of the road asking for day labor jobs in both construction and landscaping. But if you don't live next to a farm, you don't see the enormity of the problems there.

First of all, you defeat your argument by revealing your stupidity and ignorance by using the term, "retarded". No thinking, serious person does that today. If you actually have some modicum of native intelligence, do yourself a favor, and stop using that term. You reveal yourself otherwise. But more fundamentally, you missed the ENTIRE point of the article. The point wasn't that we should start paying a formerly-illegal alien minimum wage. The point that Ann has been making for years is that we should deport them ALL, and de-incentivize the crossing of the border in an illegal manner in the FIRST place. Did you not read (or simply didn't comprehend) her argument about competitive advantage?

THIS should be required reading for every student in the US. This article encapsulates every single argument against amnesty that I could possibly think of. The problem is multi-layered, multi-faceted, and has ramifications FAR beyond the surface-level "arguments" the libs proffer about social equity. To them, it's either about "fairness", which cannot be administered without altering our fundamental legal structure, or building an unbeatable voting bloc, which is cynical and will be, ultimately, fatal.
Excellent! Thank you for your service, and thank you for your articulate condemnation of what't happening now.
You may not be a greedy jerk, but, pardon me for saying so, you are part of the problem. When, as a society, we pay people as much NOT to work as we do when they were actually producing a benefit to the people paying their salaries, then we are on a road to unsustainability. Good luck in your retirement. I expect a thank-you note every year at Christmas.
"1 issue"? What issue would that be? I am as solidly GOP as anyone, but I'd be hard pressed to say what my "1 issue": would be. That said, I think the party ought to simplify it's message to say we stand for three things: 1: Greater personal responsibility, 2. lower taxes, and 3. A dominant military.
A-MEN, Ann. I realize it's a bit disingenuous of me to advocate for an older voting age, now that I'm older than 21, but kids this age are not experienced or prepared enough to cancel out my vote on social issues. There may be an argument against my conservative social stances, but it cannot be defensibly articulated by a 20 year old. You pay taxes? You get to vote. You don;t pay taxes? Well....
And importantly, to the people, who should be free to make their own individual choices.
