  • Wall Street Breakfast: ECB To Decide On QE In First Quarter [View article]
    Rich in Quebec,

    "...if you get your wish...EPA becomes impotent[?]... does acid rain...become a topic of conversation?

    No. Not implementing the proposed new rules does not nullify the old rules as you imply. Blueline does specify "extremists". Bomb throwing your propaganda does not enhance your left-wing position and is a form of political pollution. Your comment is out of order.

    Bob 123,

    "Illegal immigrants pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits. Undocumented immigrants do not qualify for welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, and most other public benefits."

    Oh Geezuz, Bob, do you think some of us just fell off the taco truck? I've been living the Mexican invasion since the late 1970's. Some illegals I'm even guilty of helping to get work and settle here in So Cal. I know the ropes and the realities. Your spewing of Democrat party propaganda in futile attempt make the true, false, because you can cite some old immigration laws that have been ignored for decades. Try again. Illegals receive much more than they pay in taxes. Think about it!

    jlalbalos,

    "This is just not true...not even close."

    One cannot expect Bob to speak without forked-tongue.

    Bob 123,

    "They do not do this, because they would be outing themselves and become targets for INS agents to initiate deportation proceedings against them."

    That don't need to "out themselves", they simply use legal resident family members as their children's legal "custodians". Get your head out, Bob! These folks may be illegal, but they ain't stoopid! There's a whole new world of rent-seeking activity by illegals, immigration lawyers and pro-immigration non-profits(??). There's a lot of taxpayer money for Spanish speaking US citizens in the illegal alien "planting" process. Especially if the're an abrogado (lawyer).

    Rich in Quebec,

    "The ignorant aren't interested anyway seems to be the best argument used, but shouldn't it be worth a try?"

    Not if the "try" is ineffective. Trying is a waste of the taxpayers money and an abuse of the "ignorant". If private enterprise knows how to target advertising, why doesn't government? Because government would have to get politically incorrect to get beneficial results, that's why.

    Bob 123,

    "You do know if you are not a U.S. citizen it is virtually impossible to enroll in government benefit programs (?)"

    Not exactly so, Bob. A person may be "illegal", but if they are the parent of a child born in the USA, that child gots "rights" because of birthright citizenship. And some of those rights are welfare, just to name a few. You just don't really know any illegals ( i know quite a few), thats why you are ignorant about illegals and government program access.

    BlueOkie,

    "In the USA the gov't is our servant, not the other way around!"

    Rich in Quebec cannot comprehend that anymore than a WSB Russo-phile can comprehend the fact that shooting down a civilian jetliner, supposedly in defense of Mother Russia, IS immoral. The concepts are simply NOT understandable. Quebec government has been good to Rich, therefore Quebec government "good". USA government tried to "enslave" Rich, therefore USA government "BAD" because it once had slavery.

    Rich doesn't cut the baloney in his "Hate USA Sandwich" thin enough to recognize his own contradictory pathology.

    a84hoo,

    I think that there has been an "epidemic" of illegal aliens in the Southwest US. However, that's politically incorrect so "epidemic" cannot be used for what is a demographic fact. However, Rich's political, "epidemic of right wingers" is perfectly acceptable, even if it's only an opinion and not a fact.

    Rich in Quebec,

    "Thus fruit juices are not taxed and fruit drinks are."

    Fruit 'juices" would be taxed if government could find some acceptable "logic" to get away with it. You know, some kind of 'epidemic of fruit juice crimes'. Don't kid yourself. When government is benign its only helpless to excuse its tendency to malignancy.

    Killer454,

    "...a government entity redefining the meaning of words to rationalize it's expansion of power...".

    Exactly. The deliberate misuse of language to confuse rather than communicate: i.e. "...we have to pass the bill [ObamaCare] so that you can find out what is in it.."...Pelosi. The French author and philosopher, Antione de Saint-Exupery, wrote much on the subject of language and its lack of utility to stop war. Indeed, he thought language was the cause of war and not armaments. So do I.

    Speaking of war, is Kerry or Hillary going to be nominated for Defense Secretary? My money's on Hillary. She needs some war creds. Kerry has his (such as they are).

    "re obesity and govt intervention on diets/food;"

    The FDA is NOT happy until everybody is NOT happy.
    It's what government agencies do. It's the bureaucrat DNA.

    crademan,

    "Do you know of any solution to the problem of undocumented aliens living within the borders of the U.S. that is more COST effective than to have those who have lived here for a minimum of 5 years & have a child who is a U.S. citizen pay fines, pay back taxes, pay application fees, and pay for a background check to prove that they are not criminals in order to obtain a temporary residence permit?"

    No! My point is that's NOT going to happen! Facts are, illegals cannot really afford to pay a fine, back taxes and background checks so the government won't require it. In fact, the taxpayer will end up PAYING illegals rendered legal money to be here. That's the problem with liberal solutions to real life problems, they just can't work. If forced to pay fines, the media will latch onto the "poor undocumented immigrants trying to get right by Uncle Sam", but are being evicted from their apt. because the couldn't pay rent after paying all these fines and taxes.

    Really, crademan?!!! That's like JFK offering up the notion that the mentally ill will be able to hold job's and pay for their own mental health insurance with the new, "modern", medications developed in the 1950's!!! You know what I think of these big liberal social ideas that are prone to go terribly wrong. And especially bad for those they are supposed to help.

    BTW, The Great Wall of China is not a wall, but a series of fortifications in mountainous terrain that is difficult to defend and supply, so the Chinese connected these forts with a stone road. The "wall" is intended to support the road that supplies the forts. It did force invaders to go around to the West and to the flat, easily defended desert. The Great Wall of China was never "breached", it was betrayed by a Ming General in conspiracy with invading Mongols. The gates of The Great Wall were opened by treachery, not by force. Like the Southern US Border.

    P.S. And the Great Wall of China is NOT visible from space to the naked eye.
