“31 Blue, you know where they are going to get the money. From you, me and everyone in between. And of course the Treasury's printing presses are working like crazy printing $100 bills.
I, personally, think we're all screwed.”
“There is no such thing as "carbon pollution." This bill will sink like a stone.”

“What are you talking about?
I thought even climate change deniers had conceded that carbon dioxide is indeed a greenhouse gas, and too much of it results in increased trapped solar heat and global warming. I thought the only dispute was over whether the CO2 levels are actually rising, and whether it is caused by human activities (not a real dispute since the evidence is overwhelming).
But now climate change deniers are not even agreeing that increased CO2 is a pollutant? Is this the latest talking point being fed to the uninformed by Koch and Exxon?”

“"no such thing as carbon pollution" ?? Really? Wow, you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about!!!”

“What do you call tons of CO2 going into the air everyday?”
“Another shot wide by Obama. And his last goal is under review by on and off ice officials in every living-room and kitchen in America. Does he really think Americans are going to support a bill that raises their energy bills? More and more people, it seems, are questioning the concept of global warming and coming to the conclusion that it's all a big scam. Like I say I would be all for a tax on CO2 emissions if one hundred percent of the money went to reforestations projects and the like. Not one penny in private hands.
And whatever happened to jobs, jobs, jobs?”
“Say you have a broken taillight and are pulled over. You're an illegal Russian with no legal US documents. You have no drivers license and you either speak no English or with a thick accent. I think that would be reasonable suspicion.
BTW we have loads of illegal Irish, Asians and Russians along with the Hispanics here in San Francisco. Guess whose job they are taking?”

“40 percent of all illegal immigrants in the USA are not Latino.
The Urban Institute estimates between 65,000 and 75,000 undocumented Canadians currently live in the United States.
What percentage of illegal immigrants who get caught are NOT Latinos? I bet it's a ton less than 40 percent. They mostly only go after Latinos.”

“I didnt know you liked to pick chillis and onions under the sun for 8 hours with no benefits???”
“So, there are going to be people making trillions off of carbon dioxide; a gas we exhale. Do you think you or I will see any of that money? Will the planet? Al Gore will see plenty of it along with Goldman Sachs.
If they are going to tax CO2 then how about nobody personally profits from it? All the money goes to buying land and reforestation projects.”
“I say mandatory jail time if you hire someone in this country illegally; Hispanic, Asian, European etc. Fines can be paid but the thought of sitting in jail should be enough to discourage the practice.”

“And I say you're right.
Keep saying it, where ever you can as often as you can.
Email your representatives, wherever you live, to tell them.
And be sure to tell the local sherriff or police chief looking for some good press in advance of November's election about all the positive publicity waiting to pour on the guys with enough guts to start this steamroller moving.”
“I may be new but I know just fine. If you are in this country illegally, no matter what country you come from (and there are lots of Asian and European illegals here in San Francisco) you don't belong here anymore than I belong in a foreign country illegally. That's what I know.”

“That we agree on. What to do is what we are debating.”
“Here in San Francisco you can have your pick of illegal aliens. There's the Hispanics, of course. Then we have the Chinese; I believe they're the second biggest demographic of illegals aliens here. They are quiet and rarely make the news. Next is the illegal Irish. Most in construction and the bar/restaurant business. Russians too. And scattered misc like indians overstaying their cards and Europeans who came for a visit and never left. Yep, there's plenty of ripe fruit here in California.
The biggest problem with this bill, in my opinion, is that it will make illegal aliens uncomfortable about living in Arizona so they will come to the sanctuary city of San Francisco where our quota of illegals was reached years ago.”
“I think what he is saying is that it's funny how the left demonized the Tea Party
as being mostly white and was called a racist organization by the press. This person is pointing out how the environmentalists groups are predominantly white also but do not suffer the same scrutiny. Just my guess.”

“Oh ok, thanks. Yea a TeaBagger also just explained it to me on another article. I don't watch Fox "News" so I didn't know the latest talking point was to try to convince people that the TeaBaggers aren't all ignorant racists.
I also didn't know that there was a liberal media conspiracy to discredit the intellectual and professional TeaBaggers. I personally just watched footage of a bunch of people that made signs with misspellings, yelled out ignorant comments, and didn't know what the basic principles of what they were fighting against.
I also didn't know that environmentalists are mostly white. That conclusion seems rather inaccurate and slightly ignorant.”
“I was stopped on the street by the military and had my ID checked while on vacation in Belfast. I was a lone 30's white male who fit the profile of who they were targeting. They were cordial and when they found I was simply a tourist I was on my way.”
“Ha, who are you kidding. San Francisco is a sanctuary city. The illegals smoke pot in front of the cops here. Illegal alien gangbangers gun down our citizens in the streets.
And part of my job does employ the mop and quite often the toilet plunger. I know, it's a job Americans won't do but this American does it.”

“Turn off GRAND THEFT AUTO, turn off Fox Opinion, depart your mommy's basement, and go find a job.”
“But the "no Irish need apply" signs were aimed at the Irish who were already here legally.
We're talking illegal here.
And it's true that the problem is not all brown. Here in San Francisco there are many
illegal Chinese, Irish and Russians along with all the illegal Hispanics.”
