    I didn't blame Obama for the shutdown. I blame him for closing the memorials.

    At the WWII Memorial, Carol Johnson w/the Park Service says they were told to close the site by White House's Office of Management & Budget.

    They benefit me in that I am able to get vegetables and fruit at the local grocery store at a reasonable price....

    Sounds like a good reason for a guest worker program.

    ....you do know that they do pay taxes, so I don't see how they cost the public schools

    The ones that steal a Social Security number and actually pay taxes don't make nearly enough to pay for the $7000 instructional cost per student in Illinois. Or the $12000 in per student operational spending. The ones working for cash are obviously contributing even less to the schools.

    also, they are not able to get Obamacare.....

    What does that have to do with the millions they cost local hospitals each year?

    Obviously you are not reading the articles that I have been providing you links to, just keep spewing your drivel without anything to back it up.

    Repeating the same thing over and over doesn't make it true...........

    Yeah, thanks for the funny articles.
    I especially liked the "benefits of" article. Hilarious!
    When you get a chance, explain how a low wage illegal pays enough taxes to cover the $12,000 annual cost
    per kid in an Illinois school. Thanks!

    The local jails will be filled with illegal immigrants costing Alabama taxpayers money while the underfunded CINS doesn't have the manpower or financial resources to process those illegal immigrants.

    At some future point in time someone in Alabama is going to wonder why their local taxes have increased so much and they are going to be told that it is because they decided that was a great idea to house and feed illegal immigrants rather than have them house and feed themselves.

    Seriously?

    That is your "source"?

    A blogger referring to a twitter?

    You never stopped to question the source of your belief? You never asked for actual verifiable evidence? You just believed it because you wanted to believe it?

    How about looking at the actual facts instead?

    National Park Service defends shutdown closures

    NPS Director Jonathan Jarvis denied the charge that the closures were politically motivated. Most of the Park Service's 20,000 employees have been furloughed during the shutdown severely limiting operations, he said.

    "Given the limited staff resources during the shutdown, prudent and practical steps were taken to secure life and property at these national icons where security has become increasingly complex in a post-9/11 world," Jarvis said.

    Republican disinformation versus the truth!

    Obama didn't throw a "hissyfit" and didn't "spend money to shut down the parks". Those are just Republican lies.

    Think about what happened when democrats gained control of both houses during Bush's second term. How bad can it get when a democrat told us that Fannie Mae was solvent just before the economy collapsed?

    Slash, cut and fuck isn't being more of anything. Bush was the best leader the republicans had as he simply was sane where it counted.
