“We have illegals here in their late 20s and 30s, who were brought here by their parents as children. The tax payers of America ,in a lot of cases, have fed them,educated them and medicated them.They have gotten educations at our expense, and claim that they did not know how to gain citizenship. Now they want an "EXPRESS LANE" to citizensip, again at taxpayers expense.
As illegals line up to get their"FREE RIDE' cards maybe they should be drug tested and seached for weapons and run thru national criminal data base...Just saying.”

“Well now they'll be accounted for if this goes through. They' got here however they did and now they'll be on the express lane to paying taxes too. Once people from outside countries see this trend they'll be reluctant to come here illegally. People should stop being so short-sighted. If no one takes action because they look at the situation as a damned if you do damned if you don't then there will never be progress. The amount of undocumented crimes committed by illegal aliens that get overlooked is unacceptable. What would you propose be done? Impose harsher immigration laws so people would be even more reluctant to become US citizens? You guys are geniuses, keep scrutinizing the President because he wasn't who you voted for. I
don't have a party but I give credit where credit is due.”
“Assault rifle in school? Maybe you should do some research. In Conn. the assault rifle never left the trunk of the car that Lanza drove to the school....folks, remenber this article when they come for all the weapons you own, which is the agenda of the govt at this time. Executive order....”
“So much for cutting govt spending. A pay raise at the time they are trying to figure how much the taxes are to be raised on the masses. Obama also proposed a new formula to figure COLA raises for SS recipients which will lower their benefits as they age. I remember when he said that SS was off the table in fiscal cliff negotiations. Obamas agenda is to tax and spend this country into oblivion....”
“Ok, more gun control/bans. Feinstein and congress say nothing about making it easier to obtain/pay for help for the mental problems these mass shooter apparently have. I can't believe that a family member, a neighbor,friend or assoc. don't see and realize that these people need some help. First, family won't say any thing because of the stigma our society associates with mental illness. Others are afraid to get involved.
There is also the cost to consider, since VERY few insurance plans will cover mental illness. Is it figured into Obaqma care? Lets stop the problem at the root by getting these shooters the help they need....”

“Sorry, the GOP doesn't count mental health as an issue. Come to Texas, where our Legislature crows how "conservative" they are - while they gut mental health spending, choosing to put them in jails/prisons, instead.

“I don't know about Illinois, but in FL you have to provide proof of insurance when you register a vehicle, even by mail. You don't need insurance unless you own a vehicle. If you let your insurance lapse after registering your vehicle and you get pulled over or involved in an accident, you're in deep poo-poo. But no deterrent is 100% effective.”
“reelected, hasn't been available to do his job since June. Trying to cut deal to stay out of jail.

Will not even start on Ill to Washington DC. Must be something in the water..”

“The boy was NOT involved in drugs at all. He has many family members here on the US side, was a great student in hopes of becoming a pilot one day. He was only 14-years-old and his parents and grandparents are devastated, as he was merely walking home from the store~ Story being told is totally false...Why don't they target the REAL drug cartels? Maybe because it will lead to high places in the US???”
“Story indicated that Obama watched the debate as he was returning from campaigning in Fla. on board Air Force "One". Question: Does the Obama campaign reimburse the the govt. for the use of Air Force " One" for campaign trips, or do tax payers pick up the bill??”

“Air Force One is the only plane the President may fly on, for security reasons. That being said, any fixed wing aircraft the President is on is designated Air Force One. For instance, when Bush flew onto that arrier to proclaim "mission accomplished" in Iraq, that fighter jet was then designated Air Force One. I will say, as former military, that I didn't appreciate the President wearing an military uniform during that stunt.
. . . and I believe the campaign must reimburse the government for the use of the plane.”

“We all kno that her income , family or other wise is in excess of a million per year, so she is tryin to protect that much. Would be interesting to see how many employees of the family TUNA operation make more than minimum wage, let alone 250,000.00 per year.”

“I am sure if the Bush tax cuts ended there will be a provision in there that says Pineapple profits are not taxable or she will just move more of her money to another country. I would love to see every congressman have to reveal where they and their family are keeping their money.
It is a fact that the Kennedy's kept their money in the Cayman islands but funny how that was never an issue with the Liberals”

“well take this aside. All gun sellers take a seminar in how to id individuals who they would have second thoughts about selling to them. Alert the screening system both locally and nationally. In the mean time don't sell to those individuals.
Having worked in the mental health and corrections field I can do the training. It is the questions that are asked that are important.”
