    I saw Allen West interviewed a few days ago and what a bright insightful no-guff guy he is! I was impressed for sure!

    Who do you like among the newcomers?

    You see, that is why France has made cuts to its pension system already, it already has rationed health care, just like every country including the US has

    He and Prof are blinded by their hatred to Europe... it is time to ignore them since they as usual cant provide any proof what so ever of their opinions.

    So you are Left after all, Peu! The evidence is that you choose to censor news you which disturbs your little head.

    But facts are facts Peu, and you'll have many, many more riots in the coming years when the goodies aren't there. That's why the "White Flight" from Europe. I even see them arriving here in Central America regularly
