    @DLoesch – In this country it’s harder to become a legal citizen than an illegal citizen. Insane.
  • @michellemalkin – What should we do? How about prioritizing naturalization backlog & showing preference to those who FOLLOW OUR RULES vs those who break them?
    @annmcelhinney – As a legal immigrant when an amnesty comes will I get citizenship, or do I have to break the law to qualify? Just askin.
  • @politiJim – What do I say to my int’l friends who have been waiting years LEGALLY to get US citizenship? “Too bad you didn’t break the law earlier?”

Socialist Death Spiral

As Maggie Thatcher famously opined,

“The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

These 11 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed.

Death Spiral - 11 states with majority on welfare

Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What’s the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25.00 an hour.
