Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
Tempest-tossed to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
We need more people to help our children and grandchildren pay for our Social Security and Medicare benefits.
That money (Social Security) is stolen and will continue to be stolen and unaccounted for no matter how much is put in the pot. Think of this. How many millions die each year of pre mature death prior to the collection age of 62 ,never to recieve a dime of that money paid in over a life time. There is never a mention of those monies ?
These huddled masses coming here are going to drain a system that is not calibrated to recieve such an impact of sudden population increase. Our imgration has gone from 250 thousand a year to millions per year now and many are here illegally or have melted in after their Visa is up. Pole
Avi, As funny as that sounds..............it may not be far that far from the truth. Growth of business depends on some population expansion. Japan will be in debt beyond it's means when it's population becomes 10 yrs older and those elderly begin to draw on bonds issued 20 yrs ago.
