    It seems more Mexicans are leaving the USA than entering. To listen to Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, Fox News and other beacons of Conservatism, one would think waves of Mexicans are massing on our southern border, ready to storm across to take our jobs, cripple our healthcare system, and lay around on welfare. Why else would The Donald want to build a wall on our southern boarder, and make Mexico pay for it? It's amazing what effect fanning the flames of fear and paranoia have on the weak minded.

    I mentioned this in another thread. Glad someone dug up the facts.

    But not to you patriotic American that you are, wishing only Bible Belters, Wasp's, and Baptists only would populate the US, to hell with those demonic Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, Anglicans, Jehovah Witnesses and the like. We don't want them here, your mantra, right?

    Funny how only left wingers ever actually espouse this kind of tripe. Never out of the mouth of a true conservative, or even a radical right winger.

    It isn't surprising at all. If it weren't for our welfare system, the invasion from Mexico would probably dry up entirely. The fact that many are returning is testament that our high unemployment is discouraging those industrious Mexicans who want to work, leaving us with just the welfare seekers.

    If Mexico had a decent economy, and jobs, there would be little incentive for the dangerous attempt to cross the border illegally.

    Our high unemployment? What rock have you been living under? In cities all across the country there are Help Wanted signs the storefronts. Even ranks of the long term unemployed are shrinking. You just cannot admit that...can you?

    Get real bill. You are the one "under a rock".

    http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/080415/true-unemployment-rate-u6-vs-u3.asp

    The U3 is the happy face "full employment" rate, which ignores those who have used up their unemployment insurance, and are still out of work.

    The U6 is in the mid twenties, about the same as the Great Depression. Get out of the house, and talk to people on the soup lines. Get the real picture, out from under your rock.

    I guess you don't know much about survivalists. Or the Aryan brotherhood.

    I hope it is a good sign. 😏
