    Right this time Henry.

    That was 30 years ago, involved 3 million illegals(not 12-20 million) and was during a very good Reagan economy as opposed to today’s horrible Obamanomics.
    Dems just want more poor, uneducated people to vote for them and could care less about the average working American.

    Remember how it was a 1 time deal?

    This suggests a general explanation of the problem:

    “The Mystery of Capital: Why Capitalism Triumphs in the West and Fails Everywhere Else” by Hernando De Soto, Peruvian economist.
    www.amazon.com/The-Mystery-Capital-Capitalism-Everywhere/dp/0465016154

    He states that laws must conform to real needs of real people. The West has been good about that. Others, not so much.

    It is an excellent read. Pro-Western Civ, pro-market, pro-Rule of Law, pro-Property Rights.

    He does not address our immigration policy, but our current immigration policy (or lack) is similar to what he describes as what usually fails. My interpolation leads to this statement of the problem:

    If we need some level of impoverished immigrants, we need to make legal ways for that many of them to enter and become part of the legal society. Then we can keep the undesired out & the law will work.

    Until we do, suppliers & demanders will create black markets & extra-legal ways circumvent. That is not a value judgement, nor a suggestion as to what a better law should be, just a statement of fact based on history as laid out by de Soto.

    WRONG this time, Henry!

    If anyone is watching, the Tea Party wishes we had another Reagan to run against the idiots we currently have … in the White House, in the DemoTAXocrat Party, and the RINO’s in the Republican Party.

    Reagan Was no Rhino. What a Liberal always twisting the truth.

    Regan raised taxes several times, allowed the budget deficit and national debt to sky rocket, and offered amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

    Reagan unfortunately trusted the enforcement component that was part of that bill. Something he later regretted.

    Todays far right wing wouldn’t be recognized by yesterdays far right wing.

    it is always strange how people ‘twist’ history to make a sound bite (cartoon caption) for today’s sesame street mentalities – those who can’t concentrate or focus for more than 30 seconds at a time – “squirrel”!!! – where was I -

    It seems to me he had something to say about the unfairness of billionaires paying taxes at lower rates than their secretaries.

    Well, what the toon is suggesting is that today’s conservative would think that Reagan was a rino, not that he IS one.

    That being said the Immigration Reform and Control ACt of 1986 did the following:

    required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status;

    made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants;

    legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants, and;

    legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt; candidates were required to prove that they were not guilty of crimes, that they were in the country before January 1, 1982, and that they possessed minimal knowledge about U.S. history, government, and the English language.

    here is an interesting post.

    Stoned??

    As opposed to being “drunk”?
    ?

    Don’t know about you but my parents enjoyed the approved drug every night. As did I as a teenager.

    Anger, fights, bigotry, and general mayhem is often the party favor when under the influence of alcohol.

    Peace, love and acceptance of our difference seems to be the mantra of stoners.

    By your rant, your drug of choice is obvious.

    Exactly, which is why it’s harder to trust Democrats on the issue this time around.

    Reagan wouldn’t be able to get a foot in the door in today’s GOP. “Raised taxes?! Raised the debt ceiling?! Cooperated with Democrats?! Never shut down the government?! Run him out of town on a rail!”
