RE: From another Forum..

Do you guys honestly believe that illegal aliens are living high on the hog? That being an illegal immigrant in the US is some kind of Eden.

Granted, being an illegal in US is probably better than being an illegal elsewhere. I just doubt that any of you guys is willing to take on their crappy jobs. Anyone here who wants to start working as a dishwasher at TGIFriday's raise your hand and I'll congratulate you on your anti immigrant stance.

IIRC, the costs of an illegtal immigrant strike are estimated to be $90 billion a day. I'm sure that's a $hitload more than the costs of printing forms in spanish and hiring a few translators at the DMV. I think the problem is that the costs of illegal immigration are disproportionately concentrated in certain areas of the country (i.e. AZ and CA) while the benefits are felt all over the country through cheaper produce and so on. If there were a way to nationalize the costs of illegal immigration, on balance, I think people would have no issue with it (except for the racists and xenophobes).

Italians are the nicest people around [8D]
We are?
Well, when they're not whacking you or putting the Maloccio on your sister. [:D]
Well, I said Italians, not Italian-Americans [;)]

However, I do not know of another place where attractive young women will so readily pull you in off the street and ply you with free food and drink.

Next time I'm gonna ask them about in-state tuition [}:)]
