    Could you possibly tone down your responses? Probably face to face we would be fine talking - but here in writing it seems kind of abusive.

    It's just an idea (exclusive of whether it's right or wrong) that he is expressing. Could you more focus on denigrating the idea and less on the poster?

    Even a W-2 employee can claim 10 dependents on their W-4 and so have little to nothing withheld. Which in my experience is what they do.

    As a percentage of their percentage of the total population? <g>

    Aren't there something like 5 times as many white people as black people in US? So wouldn't it stand to reason that the total number of white people on welfare would reflect that disparity?

    It is all good...

    Two folks saying the same thing...
    Is much more than twice as hard to discount...

    Note: GA is sensing some tension around a specific couple of posters...
    GA is probably gonna refrain from replying to those posters for a while...
    Until the tension either pops or resolves itself.

    Besides... GA is too busy to spend every evening until late... reading and posting on ARP...
    There will be plenty of time for that when busy season is over.

    Since when does percentage mean anything when talking about welfare the count is the count. You or your friends wouldn't last a month at Koch plant just one job is putting chickens on hooks at a measly pace of 24 a minute just 8-12 hours a day 6 days a week. And if you get hurt its on you or your gone. If you ever worked outstate at a factory their always looking for qualified people and can't find them. Why you say because they have already been through the company. Thank drugs and alcohol.

    Mexican Border Wall will force immigrants to go through ports of entry and prevent
    cartels from sending drugs and sex traffic across the border. It will reduce
    the power of Mexican cartels dramatically.

    Doesn't negate paying SS or medicaid. And regardless, a majority do pay taxes.

    Vin you seem like a reasonable guy, at least in my short time here, so ill ask you the following. Which is worst to you, an illegal immigrant who makes maybe $120 a day "tax free" or the legal companies that hire "undocumented" workers to save on salary wages, taxes, medical benefits, eg?
    So, you want to be reasonable for once on ARP, BM?

    Why do we have to choose? I'm sure vin, just like me, wants both to stop and wants to empower our legal system to stop it. Conservatives want to toss both sides in jail. You guys ignore the illegals and call us racists for even talking about it.

    Your side is the unreasonable side. Not us. When are people like you going to see how evil the left is? And the left runs the Democrat party.
