    I loved it - great ad.

    My favorite is the Ray Charles version.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Talk about hysterical.

    You didn't say it would have been 'more powerful in English' you tried a CON spin on separation...

    CONs seem to suffer from short term memory loss as they are never able to remember what they REALLY said.

    No conflagration, merely holding a light on the CON game. That is seems awfully brite is on you

Why is it so easy to just show up and get a house, a job, a drivers license etc... when you have no valid immigration papers? Why not create a system that requires employers, landlords etc.. to verify iimigrations status? Every time these solutions have been proposed your politicians have invariably argued against them on some dodgy constitutional grounds. It's all well and good to complain, but it's not like this is a new problem. It's been decades in the making and the only solution that is ever implemented is amnesty.

    There are also certain sectors of our population who welcome the addition of "useless" people simply because they know that those people will vote for their particular political party regardless of whether they can be said to contribute anything of value to the nation at large or not.

    These are the jobs that immigrants do. They're not doctors or even construction workers for the most part. The majority of them work menial jobs that Americans don't want to be paid $7.50 an hour to do.
    Don't forget about those damn lettuce pickers. They're dangerous, you know.

    Fine, tax those individuals who just can't stand to interact or even know that some people, gasp, can't speak good English, to pay for English language programs for those immigrant (or bad English!) populations. See if they want to put their money where their xenophobia is.

    WTF people, grow up. Yes, trying to get a hair cut when you don't think the person is understanding your English is annoying...so you don't go there. You know, like in "land of the free".

    We have a few old timers at our work and they get all pissy about "they don't speak English", it's small minded and embarrassing to hear them say it.
    The Chinese gal on the other end of that phone who doesn't speak good English but is doing an engineering job is wondering why this old American coot doesn't understand the language of mathematics as well as she does, which is as much or more essential to the job in the first place.

    Don't worry, Google will perfect the auto-translator, you'll stick a speaker in your ear and it will translate all that stuff that offends you into the pure language of mother American (with a slight delay). Then you can complain about the next xeno hot topic, maybe how that "ethnic food section" in the major grocery store chains now offends you.

    Ummm no you didn't! You lost and now are going to run away pouting...

    You tried to push some rather absurd separation BS and when called on it resorted to typical CON spin, claims of hysterics and conflagration.

    "this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine...."

    We already offer such programs for FREE for immigrants.

    Because they can't speak English, their job opportunities are SEVERELY limited, and YES it can most certainly be dangerous work, not to mention these immigrants who are ignorant of English are taken advantage of, so the only thing you are doing by persisting with this ridiculous angle is putting people in difficult economic and social positions. Your ideology does NOTHING to help immigrants and EVERYTHING to hurt them.

    In the labor camps, the adults will tell you kids don't work in the fields. They'll say the children stay within the clusters of wooden shacks that house migrant workers and their families, or attend summer school while their parents tend to the crops.

    "Los niños no trabajan," a woman at a farm near Salem told a visiting reporter in July.

    Minutes later, foreman Leonidon Mendoza Morales arrived and told a different story. The farmworker offered a seat in his flatbed truck and sped down rocky dirt roads, past the landowner's home and into a field containing endless rows of green.

    There, his 12-year-old daughter, Diana, toiled in the summer heat with four younger children. Diana's 9-year-old brother, Elvin, intermittently crouched and stood in a bramble of blackberries. Elvin's small hands, wearing stained and torn latex gloves, felt between thorns for berries to place in the bucket harnessed over his shoulders and around his waist, laden with 15 pounds of fruit.
