Hunting for votes are we?

I do feel for the kids, but how are we going to track their taxes, or are we going to let them off scot free too? Are their children also available to receive the welfare and education WE taxpayers provide, YEAH. IS this going to make the States look super appealing to more illegals, YEAH. Oh, and all they have to do is CLAIM that they were brought here! No proof, no worries!

Obama also said at his latest "benefit" that the people present, rich odd fashion designers and celebrities, would be the ones to decide/turn the election (not said exactly verbatim). Reeealllllyyyyy??? Merle Streep and SJP are so important that THEY are going to be the ones to keep him in? God, I hope not.

The thrashing of Mitt, whom I'm still unsure of, but really anything somewhat solid would be better, for being "Uber Rich" and not down enough to earth is so hypocritical and just another HUGE scoop of poop on the pile makes me SICK. Especially when he says those RICH celebrities and pompous arses are going to "determine" the election? Accepting $30,000 meal tickets/donations... I won't spend that much money on food in 6 years.

Oh, and the horse thing is ABOUT TO DRIVE ME INSANE. That horse is creating more jobs, comparatively, than Obama.

I am going to burn my computer, my TV, tear out my car radio, and stay hidden in the forest. Good luck guys.

Kind of off topic. But there IS a third party candidate going to be on the ballot in all 50 states this year. I hope he poles high enough to get into the debates. So far I'm liking him way better than the two standard options we have

Gary Johnson 2012

I didn't say anything about my iPhone... LOL!
But sure, take all 3!!

What is so scary about that Ink, is if we vote for a lesser known candidate we are essentially throwing our vote away. I HATE to say that! There is no way I am going to help Obama, whomever else is close in polls will get my vote. Unless of course they are worse, which I don't think Mitt is.
I have heard of Johnson but haven't really checked him out. Thanks!

There-in lies the problem with a third-party candidate. People already have it in their heads that they are throwing their vote away. But if everyone were to vote for the third party candidate it wouldn't be throwing our vote away at all. LoL I'm in TN. Obama doesn't have snowball's chance in you know where of taking the state and I refuse to vote for Romney. So in a sense I don't have anything to lose lol.

I totally agree Ink. That's why I said I'd vote for the one who's closest in the polls.

As far as regulating the borders... Tax the CRAP out of Mexico until THEY solve this problem.

Without some path to legal status those young people will be torn from their families and deported to a country they do not know.
With millions of undocumented workers in this country billions would be spent finding housing and deporting them.
Billions that can be used for education, housing, and medical care for all.
My family spent years and thousands of dollars to ensure that Ricardo and Juana became US citizens. They came to this country at 12 and 11 years of age.
They worked for my family for years and raised a family here.
2 of their sons who were born here still work for us.
Jesus is in college and Miguel in high school. One son is a LT in the USAF and their daughter is graduating from college next year.
Ricardo and Jauna worked hard for years and now own 2 businesses and over a 100 acres.
They have never accepted a dime in charity or assistance.
Most immigrants fit the same mold, this country needs more people like them. Shalom

How were you able to legalize them? Just curious, because I don't know the way you can legalize the illegal unless you do it through the immediate relative or extreme hardship under certain conditions. Or refugee.

I feel for kids, but fact is fact - they came here illegally and violated the law in 1st place. Giving them working permit is very unfair towards those who came here legally and have been keeping a legal status through the whole procedure. I'm not even talking about taxes, sending money back to Mexico and other countries for the family left there, illegals using public schools and hospitals (which cost lots of money), etc.

IMHO decisions like this one should be made by the citizens (or at least the Senate), not Obama or Homeland Security.
