    wasn't it sh76 who recently said a person would be a fool to turn down a benefit just because he disagreed with it?

    how then can we fault Lou Dobbs?

    Well...let's take him out and shoot him! I'm sure he's the only guy in America who ever employed an illegal immirgrant. Frankly, I've never even heard of such a thing!

    I thought we were supposed to call them undocumented workers.

    (Actually, that's what they're called when employed by a Democrat).

    actually, that's a better term -- because then the obvious question is -- "why did you neglect to obtain a copy of said documents when you hired them?"

    That comparison makes no sense. I was referring to a legal benefit; not an illegal action of hiring someone who is here illegally.

    it DOES make sense. driving faster than the speed limit is illegal. do you know anyone who's ever done it?

    known anyone who got busted for 56 in a 55 zone?

    the feds are bringing legal action against Arizona for trying to arrest illegals!

    if the feds are turning a blind eye, why shouldn't Lou Dobbs take advantage of it?

    What can I say....It's a world gone mad!

    The Feds also do nothing about "Sanctuary Cities" which clearly and admittedly violate Federal law, instead of nuking these cities as they should
