Lemme see if I understand this. If Arizona denies benefits to ILLEGAL ALIENS, Mexico will take us to the world court? Well that's just great, cause I'm quitting my job, applying for welfare, workmans comp. disability, and unemployment. If Pa. refuses my claim I'll get zimbabway to sue for me. Maybe it's the brighter thugs and thieves that are sneaking in here and bleeding us dry, while the total idiots stay in Mexico city and act like arses. Geeze louise, we just might have to follow the advice of that drunken, murdering, idiot from Mass. and bring our troops home and head on south and drag this idiot out from under his rock and let the taxpayers have a crack at him.

Speaking of taxes, some of our local "occupational PRIVELAGE taxes have gone from $10.00 per year to $52.00 per year. During a conservative/liberal radio debate, the liberal suggested that we consider it as a $1.00 per week tax, it sounds "LESS THREATENING!"
I believe that when I become king, I will re-instate the public stocks, for total idiots..
Ya just can't make up stuff this stupid, it's gotta be their mouth talking their butts wouldn't ever sound that stupid.
Mom always said "smile, things could get worse!" Well I smiled and look what happened!
Don't you dare tell me,, nuh uhh, It's my day and I'll have a rotten one if I wanna.
P.S. James, get to the DR. or I'll tell Donna, she'll make your current problems look like a walk in the park.. Just do it!!!!!!!!

I guess I did something wrong...NOT
I'm a LEGAL Alien with an Alien number on my greencard.. I have to work and pay social security for 10 years before I can even apply for any benefits.. I think that's right.. I mean, how for Pete's sake can somebody expect to go to another country and expect to get money which has been paid by people who work for their money??

I think that fact that you said "Hey I'm here" speaks volumes!!" That's all I ask. Not "Hey I'm not really here, gimme something!"
I'm not against immigration, just thieves!

I know, Ron...

I'm just wondering why illegal immigrants can even start thinking they would get benefits.. I mean, to me it's so normal that I have to earn my own living.. I always havee and I always will, as simple as that..
How can any immigrant ( legal or illegal )expect his new country to say: oh hello, nice you're here... want some money???

don,t sweat it seems the UN can now tell canada how much and who can come to this country, gotta always read the fine print even when the policitions sign on the dotted line with the UN i guess.

You mean the UN can make you take Jane Fonda, Ed Asner, and we'll throw in Ted Turner,, Hey mebbe I like the world court after all.

why does it seem that the liberals raise the taxes then the conservatives say "we didn't do that" but they (conservatives) manage to never lower taxes??????

Ron/PA    Posted 01-28-2005 at 11:04:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well mostly because the money has already been spent.When they lower income taxes, the whining starts about losing social services, even though the papers are filled with unfilled help wanted ads.
The conservatives have lowered taxes, and the liberals didn't say we didn't do that, they say, It's unamerican to lower taxes!!!
Let's cut welfare, and promote a back to work campaign.

have you looked at jobs that are available in the local paper? i look every wednesday when the new listings come out. pretty slim pickins, glad i don't need a job.

Ron/PA    Posted 01-28-2005 at 11:45:16       [Reply]  [No Email]
If Jane and John Doe have to work 60 hours a week to make what welfare is paying them, I don't have a problem with that. If that means they have to spend the next 5 years as assistant managers at McDonalds, I'm OK with that as well. It's called earning a living. It still works here in rural America.
I'm sorry they can't get top notch jobs, but hey there's training available for free. Find a job, then pick a field, and get your training and get to work, just get off my tax bill.

dunno how it is down there steve but up here when the liberials raise taxes we get something for it when the conservatives get in they don,t lower the taxes but cut what we had already paid for , thus same tax for les service and then they raise user fees on everything, i got a 25% tax cut and my pharacare went from 800.00 to 1600.00 a year he11 evem my drivers licence went from 40.00 to 75.00,they are all crooks , there has to be a better way than policitions.

Where have you been for the last 4 years. George Dubyaa lowered the income tax rate several years ago based on an overly optimistic forcast of the Federal Deficit.

national tax issues boggle my mind. if GW did lower, not cut, taxes my wife and i saw little or no benefit.
locally almost all the local politicians are republican, same for school board. in the 18 years that we have been in our home our taxes have doubled. (3300.00 to 6600.00 give or take a dime or two)

Aww, pay yer $52 and smile. After all, fast Eddie is going to make property taxes extinct when he gets a betting parlor on every corner. And when he gets sales tax on everything you buy, there will be so much extra money in Harrisburg, we'll probably have to haul it out in dump trucks. But don't dump it in a landfill, cause he wants to raise the taxes on tipping fees too.

Oh yeah, and don't forget that the tooth fairy is gonna be delivering your share of the Lottery proceeds when you get to be a senior citizen.

I'm lucky, I work out of a $10.00 district. Now I'll send you the other $42.00 and you can bet it for me at the track. We don't have any local places. Other wise I'll have to drop it at the local fire company on a punch board.... beer included.
PS I'll put my dentures under the pillow. LOL
