    We cant create 200,000 new jobs every month without immigration when the people already here don’t even replace themselves.

    Thats just basic math.

    As far as the “government tit” goes—-how much do you propose we raise the minimum wage so no one needs food stamps or Section 8 housing any longer?
    We don't need to grow our economy on the backs of the taxpayer by importing tens of millions of welfare recipients. You do the math.

        Then you have to raise the wages so they no longer qualify for welfare.

        How do you propose we do that?

          That might be the problem.

They're much more focused on getting their education and getting a good start on their careers. It's weird...none of them even date people...it wasn't that way with my generation, we were obsessed with getting laid.
            I've got 4 kids. 17, 20, 26, 27. My oldest is engaged, but he's settled into his career (and she's a great woman). Other than that, none are interested in making babies or being in a relationship.

                How many small businesses will go out of business if we raise the minimum wage so high you can feed 5 kids and Grandma flipping burgers?

                  You guys need to get your fake news stories straight - are they here for the welfare, or are they here to "TIK R JUUBS!!"???


                  Most people who are here illegally came here to work, and simply overstayed their welcomes. They didn't come here to live in poverty. Just by going through the trouble of immigrating here, they have already shown more motivation to succeed than many Americans.

                  But you spread whatever fake news makes you feel good.

                    Exactly. That’s why we provide subsidies to low wage earners.

                      I believe I just warned you about this the other day guido - you’re making a personal attack when you say that - it’s too easy to tell exactly who your comment is directed at and it is a direct insult to his intelligence. And despite the warning, you did it again - not once, but twice.

                      See you in a month.

                    That makes a LOT more sense!
                    That annoys the uneducated... they want the highly technical jobs that cannot be performed by a chimp.

                      Nothing new here; we've being doing this for two hundred years.
                      Did it really take this long for someone to point out that for most of those 200 years there was no such thing as public assistance?

                        Sure there has. We’ve always had charities, and different forms of government assistance.

                        That we stepped it up a lot in the last several decades is true. But why do we think we did that?

                            I believe various cities and locales provided some assistance to people.

                            heres this:

                            The history of welfare in the U.S. started long before the government welfare programs we know were created. In the early days of the United States, the colonies imported the British Poor Laws. These laws made a distinction between those who were unable to work due to their age or physical health and those who were able-bodied but unemployed. The former group was assisted with cash or alternative forms of help from the government. The latter group was given public service employment in workhouses.
