    1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L. A. County has 10.2 million people)are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.

    2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

    3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens..
    4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal , whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

    5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally

    6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages..
    7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

    8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

    9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.

    10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.
    (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County )

    (All 10 of the above statistics are from the Los Angeles Times)

    Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States ' annual population growth (and over 90% of California , Florida , and New York ) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

    How long has Obama been on the job and you guys are already blaming him for the recession?

    Ok, so how long has the Governator been in charge?

    And Michigan was Granholm's fault?

    And Clinton took credit for Bush1's hard work?

    Republicans are such dishonest fucks.

    Wow nice red herring, now why don't you answer the question of the thread? Silly bobo, your God won't save you in the end!

    He has made the non-PC point. CA's problems are based on a few things, top of the list is definitely Illegal immigation. Here is a small list of her problems:
    (1) Illegal Immigration putting a strain on welfare, the hospitals, education, auto insurance (good luck getting an illegal to pay if you get in an accident with them) and on law enforcement. Not to mention the one's that do work usu don't pay taxes. CA has a huge problem, but no one will turn it around, because no one wants to address the fact that their main problem is Illegal immigration. The sancturary society of CA is too hard to break with so many liberals whites, non-voting blacks and pro-illegal immigration gigantic Latino population.
    (2) The Housing Crunch! CA more than any State even FL save its housing shoot to unsustainable levels and the bubble bursting hurt them the most. Not to mention many of the big banks are located in CA.
    (3) Over taxation and over-regulation pushed many very productive business out! Not too mention many productive individuals.
    (4) Liberal Economics at work never works!
    (5) And of course the economic rescession altogether.

    Is it just a coincidence that the market started tanking the same week Obama secured the nomination? And the same week George Soros withdrew billions from the US economy?

    I don't read where it says Obama is being blamed for anything. He will have enough to answer to when his term is up as he is taking this country down, down, down. But - CA is where it is due to many years of being a welfare state. If I'm not mistaken, anybody who comes here can go directly to the welfare office for help as soon as they cross the state line. And the same goes for crossing the border. People who don't live in any of the border states have not a clue as to what goes on with these illegals. How does it go? - Walk a mile in my shoes.

    He said the source was the LA Times. Shouldn't be hard to find, I bet Bass could even find it.

    1. Its not an illegal immigration problem. Do you want to stop it? Then start focusing on the real problem, the illegal employers. If no one was hiring them, they would all go home tomorrow.

    2. These illegal employers love the free healthcare given to illegals because then they don't have to provide those benefits.

    3. What business' were pushed out because they were overtaxed? Those companies were doing fine before NAFTA. And no matter how many tax breaks we give, it'll still be cheaper in 3rd world countries, so you are going to argue that until corporations pay zero taxes and we pay them all. You may not realize it, but that's not right.

    4. You pay high taxes in the best states and you pay low taxes in shitty states like Arkansas. Do you want to move to Arkansas? Go for it. You also won't have the location you had in California.

    5. Actually, trickle down never worked and neither did Bush's tax breaks. So you telling me liberal economics never worked is the pot calling the kettle black. Unions and the New Deal created the strong middle class we had, and Reagan/Bush/Clinton & Newt/Bush & Tom Delay have all but destroyed the middle class.

    PS. You have the red herring between your legs. :lol:

    PPS. You only have half the story.

    Yes. Well, no. Because the rich people that own this country are going to send the economy into the tanks right before the 2010 election so their lap dogs can regain some seats.

    And notice we can't even get anything passed even with 60 seats because the corporations have already purchased 10 of our blue dogs.

    So don't worry, we won't get anything signifigant passed and your boys will be back in charge very soon.

    What do you expect to happen then? The bank bailout happened because of the GOP and on Bush's watch.

    The GOP doubled the debt.

    They lied us into Iraq and wanted to start a war with Iran.

    They got hit on 9-11.

    Their tax breaks only helped corporations, and those corporations still went overseas. Unless the government stops them, they won't stay unless you will work for chinese/mexican/india wages. Are you open to that, stupid?

    Is it your opinion that illegal immigrants do not cause a strain on taxpayers?

    If so then you're an idiot.
