    Indubitably. I don't want it to be discussed, just acknowledged.

    How about we just Puerto Rican-ize Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala? Take them as US territories and everyone is happy. We can ship jobs there, their way of life improves, we get the economic benefits and wonderful, cheap real estate for us to retire to.

    This will give AZ, TX, and CA a break on the immigration front as now heading north into those States no longer will be the only option for Mexicans coming here illegally.

    It's a win/win.

    Because the Mexicans took their jobs.... You're probably using a temp service on top of that - owned by Mexicans.

    My mother is a CFO of a manufacturing company and they use a Mexican owned temp service and I give her bull**** over that every time she brings up her work when I see her...... It's wrong and I don't like it, and she agrees but she is a CFO and has nothing to do with any of that, which I don't buy for a second considering I went in "undercover" to investigate weather or not items were being ripped off (the books said stuff was getting "lost" or "ripped off") but when I was working there and told my mother there was not so great working conditions -- all of a sudden there were Gatoraide breaks - so yeah.... I don't buy the whole "I can't stop this illegal madness stuff"

    I should just start my own temp agency for US citizens.

    In general I like the South, but the Falklands are just a little too far South for me.
    The weathers kind of nasty there.

    The Falklands war was one of the dumbest concepts......... I don't know why either side actually gave a damn about the Island.

    The worst part is that people died over that nonsense.

    IMO, one of the most unnecessary conflicts in modern times.

    I'm beyond words...
    I think it's a good idea. The USA has always been a beacon of light for refugees. We took in the Irish, and if not for that, I wouldn't be here today, since my grandfather came here from Ireland. The only time we turned down refugees was when we turned the ship The St. Louis away. If was full of Jewish refugees, who were later slaughtered at Hitler's extermination camps.
