You know as usual lately, the people who are protesting about illegal immigrants being here and earning a paycheck have failed to do any research and have acted in the usual shoot from the hip fashion.

There are supposedly 10.5 million folks of various ethnic groups working, living and, yes paying taxes in most cases here living within our borders. Because it seems that when when your local dairy farm, ski area or whatever hires some and they complete an I-9 with a fictitious social security number the money is paid by the employer to the Social Security Administration's saving account these funds will never find their way to those people who in fact paid the money.

Let's run the math on that. Lets say that 50% of the illegals pay into SS, well 5 million people a week pay, what $10.00 a week, that's $50,000,000.00 [approx]. Times 52 weeks is what? A large amount of money with many zero's.

Do you see what I see?

It seems that immigration reform might actually provide SS with less dollars to pay those of us who have paid in all these years. And I am somewhat sure that if you asked many of these people who work in our country with fake SS cards they would say keep the money, I'm just happy to have a job.

You know it is getting to a point where if a Tbagr told me is was sunny out, I would reflexively reach for my rain coat.

We don't talk about those things.

FYI-don't have a clue why but with Firefox cannot see your header picture and it's a good one.
