Entitlements, Promised Benefits, Language and Arithmetic

Original post made by stephen levy, University South, on Oct 4, 2009

Every week Americans are reminded that large federal budget deficits threaten our future because we have an "entitlement crisis" from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. And every week in California residents are reminded that state and local governments face a crisis in meeting health and pension obligations for retired public sector employees.

It's clear that Americans Citizens (this includes the government) are out of touch with one of the largest reason for this recession/depression. ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS. Roll the dice and come up with any number you want for this MESS, but you cannot get away from that LARGE REASON. Get the ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS OUT! An American does not have the American Government benefits nor the rights of ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS. ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS get emergency healthcare. emergency food, emergency housing. They reap all these benefits for as long as they are SAFE within OUR BORDERS. The ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS have been a strain on our Economy, healthcare, housing; you name it...they have the benefits. WE DON'T! This has been going on for twenty-five (25) years. That's one heck of a pull on our Economy. I called ICE once, because of ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS. The answer ICE gave: "WE can't do anything about them, we don't have the resources to put them back across the border." I told them to put them back the same way they came over here: "A little at a time!" The American Government has failed and continues to fail the American Citizens. I suppose we should all go to Mexico and become Mexican Citizens and then WALK not RUN back across to the American side of the border...AND REAP ALL OF OUR BENEFITS...Better yet, we should move to Mexico and let the ILLEGAL TRESSPASSERS have America. They have more rights than we do. Shame on America! I was just passing through and found this need to reply to me...I'm gone! DO THE MATH!
