  •  Okay, you've got a really shallow understanding (4+ / 0-)

    about the issue overall.

    There are economic impacts to depressed wages, but I won't bore you with a lesson about that since you've got this all figured out anyway.

    A rising tide lifts all boats, and mostly free labor, um, still lifts all boats, I guess. We'll just wait for it to trickle down.

    P.S. I am not a crackpot.

      lifts the boats of cheap labor bosses.

      People like Bob "Swift Boat" Perry, who made billions by importing illegals, putting Americans out of work, and fucking over those who bought his cheap shit houses, built by cheap shit illegals.

      And then he funded the Swift Boat veterans.

      So, those of you who favor illegals are right in the "Swift Boat" with "Swift Boat" Bob. Also Karl Rove and Grover Norquist. They all want cheap labor.

      Democrats used to be for the working man/woman, and not for the illegal. They favored good jobs at good wages.

      They hated scabs. So why are so many Democrats pro-scab, pro-cheap labor, pro-illegal?

      I am disgusted by the degenerate ideas of the Democratic Party today.

        people here mostly benefit from cheap labor. I think the average income of Kossacks pushes six digits.

        How big is your personal carbon footprint?

        •  I wonder how many (0+ / 0-)

          are in that category? I am but I give a crap about my fellow citizens.

          I think a LOT of Kossacks are either well off liberals (like me), or are young and totally clueless about reality.

          I imagine that 60-70% are between 25-35, have either little children or no children, and do not look to the future. If they choose to have children, where will the children work? What about their moms and dads?

          I have a STRONG orientation to US citizens being FIRST in line in the US. It's OUR country. We are citizens. That is what citizenship gets you - certain privileges.

          My view is simple. Hire US, buy US, help ourselves, our neighbors, our children, and our friends. The rest of the world needs to take care of itself.

          First, we need to take care of our own first.

          Second, we all have children. I have 3, 22, 22, and 26. My 22 YO daughter has a job, my son has just started looking and the 26 YO has had a hard time. The 22 YO daughter has 700-800-900 FB friends who all graduated from college, mostly they did very well, and a lot are in unpaid internships and / or in crappy waitress jobs.
