I have been to europe 6 times in the last three years and haven't seen this phenomina (spelling?) but of course you tube is much more reliable than an eye witness to the radical right.

"My ancestors arrived to this country with very little. One thing they did have was PRIDE. They didn't arrive with their hand outstretched looking for welfare, a driver's license, free tuition, food stamps, free housing....." really? i live in the south sir and believe me when there is a hot hard job? you don't see citizens doing it, those horrible illegas are doing it. roorers, fruit and vegetable pickers, construction workers, road crews..all horrible illegals. Remember Georgia passed all those perfect regulations on using illegalsa and when it came time to harvest the fruits and vegetables they rotted in the field and on the trees as all those hard working "citizens" that spoke english and were here legally would not work for the money that was being offered. Perhaps this isn't true in small town Dunkirk and Fredonia but believe me, the construction industry is all for keeping these "illegals' here.

I'd like to know when they think there are enough leeches in the country and how much they are willing to give them? All while being cussed at, threatened, and worse to be told they aren't doing enough for the poor dears...

Keep living in the past Marcia. You want to change the second to suit you but forgo any changes to the immigration policy? Except to allow any and all in that want to come? The issue is that the people coming here now are a drain on the system, not an addition to it. There was no welfare, food stamps, guaranteed health care, housing and education back when your grandparents came. All these things cost money, money that this country cannot afford. Add to that the disrespect to the country from these so called wanna be Americans and the country is doomed. But that's fine with you? What about the influx of Muslims? Doesn't bother or scare you? Take a look on youtube for the incidents of Muslims taking over neighborhood's in European countries, blocking entire areas of downtown business districts to pray, disrespecting everything about the country they supposedly wanted to become a citizen of...when will you open your eyes to the wolves in sheep's clothing? After you lose an arm?

Marcia,the right to common(until the safe act)magazines for rifle and pistol that hold more than 10 rounds(even though we can only put 7 in legally)which we will now have to sell out of state or destroy.Life time pistol permits which will have to be renewed at our expense,having the state police looking into medical records(HIPPA-that's a no-no)and taking away firearms illegally(court case pending there).The cost of the lawsuits working their way through the courts that gun owners are funding and the state using our tax money against us.Ah yes we're in liberal heaven.

concerned... "typical lib smoke and mirrors and diversion tactics!"

So asking for FACTS to back up an opinion is now smoke and mirrors and diversion tactics? Is this typical of people who do not understand that there is a difference between a FACT and an opinion?

While we are at it...would you back up your statement that Medicaid, etc makes up 80% of our County Budget.

As they the saying goes...Everyone is entitled to their own opinion...but NOT their own facts.

225522, the reason they are having problems in Europe is that they decided to follow austerity budgets, which is hurting the economy. We are doing slightly better because of jobs programs and other measures taken to expand the economy. You will see Europe reverse course as they realize their mistake.

Yes Phil I am sure your savior jesus would have agreed with your racist attitude calling people swine because they came here illegally. Jesus so supported holding down people based on small mindedness.

1laona, what rights have liberals taken away. The biggest loss of rights came under George W Bush in the Homeland Security Act. I am disgusted the democrats didn't reverse it when they had control for a few months, but it probably would have been filibustered anyways.

What your good Christian forefathers brought with them as immigrants was death … "Old World" diseases had a devastating impact on Native American populations because they had no natural immunity. The smallpox epidemics are believed to have resulted in the largest death tolls among Native Americans, surpassing any wars and far exceeding the mortality from the Black Death. It is estimated that upwards of 80–95 percent of the Native American population died in these epidemics within the first 100–150 years following 1492; the most affected regions in the Americas lost 100% of their population. Then your holy-then-thou ancestors spent the next 300 years killing off the Native Americans, stealing their land and making them second-class citizens. Tis a shame the new immigrants can’t provide racial bigots like the author some of the same.

Now, now 1Laona, I never even implied thaqt Veterans don't deserve nor need help. I said, other than Veteran's issues you have no opinion nor concern about anything in this country other than your effin guns, and that statement I'll stand by. How about charity for Cancer, people who've lost homes to fires or floods, that sort of thing? I give money all the time, and NEVER to large organizations that pay out many times less than $.50 cents on the dollar. So, should we have a contest here? You never read anything completely through, and change what you say every other post. Nothing left to say to you. We don't agree on much, never will.

PhilJulian...would you tell me how many people in our County are on public assistance? How many receive CASH benefits? What percentage of our population on receiving welfare?

Those that receive food stamps or medicaid, many of them ARE WORKING FULL TIME. We, the taxpayers, seem to be supplementing some of the large companies who pay their employees so low wages and little to no benefits so that they are forced to get food stamps and other help. Meanwhile the ceos of these companies are making HUGE profits.

JUDEYE - I agree that we should feed the sheep bt DO WE HAVE TO FEED THE SWINE? We have developed a culture of dependency on government where taxpayers will take care of you from cradle to grave. It has the potential to destroy our way of life.

Nothing in America will ever be fixed 1Laona as long as so many people, people just like you, assign ALL of the blame to only a portion of the responsible parties. And other than the Military, it doesn't look like you care about much, and the bigger problems in this country do not involve the Military other than their overall excessive spending.

Judeye, As always you and the rest of the liberals are confusing illegal with legal immigration. My ancestors arrived to this country with very little. One thing they did have was PRIDE. They didn't arrive with their hand outstretched looking for welfare, a driver's license, free tuition, food stamps, free housing.....and on and on it goes. Don't you agree?

“...Liberals will be offended that I mentioned the word God.”

and some of us liberals are guided by our faith..which directs us to advocate for the less fortunate, the needy,the imprisoned, and the poor.

"FEED MY SHEEP"...

Some of us take that very seriously.

Unless you are a Native American...YOU are an immigrant, or come from immigrant family history.

Most of those who speak Spanish in our area come from Puerto Rico..which is a TERRITORY of the USA. "All territory under the control of the federal government is considered part of the "United States" for purposes of law..... "The inhabitants of the ceded territory . . . shall be admitted to the enjoyment of all the rights, advantages, and immunities of citizens of the United States;"

"The official languages of the executive branch of government of Puerto Rico are Spanish and English, with Spanish being the primary language."

Just might explain why SOME agencies (not all governmental agencies have translators) have translators for Spanish speakers.

Dkexpat, you're absolutely correct. This isn't a Democrat / Republican thing as it has been doing on for decades with both parties in control GW Bush supported Illegal Immigrants, saying, "they're doing the jobs Americans won't do".

guns in the morning,guns in the evening,guns at suppertime.....er no Christopher that's not all I'm concerned about.Charities are Wounded Warriors and probably 5-6 Charity Bike Runs a year,plus the chicken dinners,auctions and have just given cash to those in need(forgot the red bucket for the Salvation Army)and the USO.There's alot to be concerned about and you,Judeye,Marcia and your ilk are responsible for much of it.I hope it can be turned around so you won't see the fruits of your labor.
