That was all well and good until the government leviathan decided to give away door prizes, which is where the real anti-immigration sentiment comes from. It's all about the Benjamins... With a touch of racism and fear sprinkled in for flavor.
Hi Mayberry,Tam put it best. She said that when you leave a pile of sugar on the kitchen floor, you get ants.I have to disagree with you on the roots of immigrant-hatin'. It's all about racism. If not, then any welfare would be vilified, especially Social Security and Medicare, which are bankrupting this country.Basically what the tea-baggers are saying is that welfare is OK for knuckledragging Appalachian-Americans, but not for brown foreigners. I think theft is theft, no matter where your tax dollars go.I'm not against racism. People should be free to hate whomever they want to. As a construction worker, I'm expert at racial slurs and epithets, and I use them often. But I don't disguise my racism or wrap it in a flag like Palin.Dave
