Don't get me wrong. I'm all for controlling immigration better. I see it as a jobs issue, where billionare Bush buddies are getting rich busting unions and keeping the minimum sinfully low. But here's my response to this Bush Buttkisser.
This is so ironic, coming from a Bush loving, Rapture raving, hard core Republican like you.Until they admit they voted for the wrong guy, I have no patience for any Bush voter.
Think maybe the education problems have something to do with the fact that Bush has underfunded his own "no child left behind" initiative? Think maybe the high drop-out rates have something to do with schools encouraging kids to drop out before taking the test that ranks the schools, so the numbers don't get skewed by a bunch of kids who aren't learning? Think maybe the immigrant population explosion has something to do with Religion telling these people it's a sin to use birth control, or to use the morning after pill (which aborts a glob of cells with no "blood of life")? Or maybe it has something to do with Bush and his religion Nazis insisting that we teach abstinence only in school, instead of telling kids about ALL their options to control the birth rate?
You think maybe the high number of illegals in Colorado have anything to do with the fact that the big meat packing companies hire them to slaughter and butcher animals - jobs that used to be high-paying union jobs held by Americans? Did you know that the meat industry gives 95% of its political donations to Republicans who help bust the unions and make it easier to get the illegal labor.
So, we need a highly educated populace? Why, then, do you support a Republican party that cuts student loans, student grants, raises the rates on the existing student loans, and refuses tax cuts to middle class families trying to pay for their children's tuition? Why do you support a GOP that cuts funds to Vocational Technical programs, head start, child health programs, and all kinds of other Educational funding? Why do you support a GOP when many Republicans advocate eliminating the department of Education?
Lou Dobbs links to the Center for Immigration Studies, a pretty good source..."At the peak of the Great Wave of immigration in 1910, the number of immigrants living in the U.S. was less than half of what it is today, though the percentage of the population was slightly higher. The annual arrival of 1.5 million legal and illegal immigrants, coupled with 750,000 annual births to immigrant women, is the determinate factor— or three-fourths— of all U.S. population growth."So, as a percentage of population, less than what we had in 1910.
But, hey, don't let that stop you from trying to distract everyone from Bush's illegal wiretapping, his on-going quagmire of lies in Iraq, his 3 TRILLION in debt added since he became president, his ignoring of science, his union busting, his cronyism, or all the crooks in his administration, or the fact that YOU VOTED FOR HIM.
