F. Jim, live and in person

Everything you wanted to know from Rep. F. Jim Sensenbrenner, if you're not afraid to ask at four town meetings this weekend.

Suggested questions for F:

Aren't you glad those people in New Orleans got what they deserved?

Who could possibly object to having their phones tapped to fight terrorism?

How high does the wall across the Mexican border have to be to keep out illegals? Do we need guard towers and machine guns?

et cetera

I think I will get Sensenbrenner know how pissed off I am that Doyle may make it impossible for me to board an airplane and fly to O'Hare without a passport.

Is that a good topic?

:raising hand and practically jumping out of chair:
I can answer all of these VERY EASILY!!!
answer 1. Well you build a city
8 feet BELOW sea-level Common sense says your gonna get flooded SOMETIME! (DUH)
#2 Next time you are on the phone, take a look around you and see how many people are within "earshot" thats approx 10ft
And finally #3 As high as they can make it, Guard towers and machine guns??? Thats is the best idea yet!! I have forwarded that Idea to Michael Chertoff.
Although just remember 1 thing pal, I was born here in the States and I DO NOT have half as many rights as they do!!! They can be caught working Illegally, and just get slapped on the hand and told "don't do it again" but if I get caught hiring one I could get fined and/or jailed. They get hurt on the job they get Workmans Comp. even though they DO NOT pay into the system, They are entitled to Medicare from day 1 even though again they Do NOT pay into that system either. An Illegal Mexican Wants to drive one of my Dump Trucks and has never driven anything bigger than a bicycle? I basically MUST hire him because if I don't I am being Discriminatory toward a lower class, and would SURELY lose in court. SO your DAMN RIGHT KEEP THEN IN MEXICO!!! And if I'm being Racist, so be it, I have been called MUCH WORSE IN MY LIFE. BTW SOMEONE TELL ME WHY I AM WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

I think I will just let that one speak for itself. Nothing I could say could expose you for what you are any more than you have done to yourself.

Welcome to the debate, Mr. Cheaney. I assume you found your way here from a link on Sykes. It will be great having your insights in future discussions.

By the way, it is Sensenbrenner's bill that would make it a criminal act for you to help or hire an illegal alien. That is not the current law.

I'll answer one:

Q: Who could possibly object to having their phones tapped to fight terrorism?

A: Al Quaida

Another question: Who could possibly object to Al Quaida's phones being tapped to fight terrorism?

A: The ACLU, Liberals, Democrats of the left, Xoff, Russ Feingold (oh, already have him on the list), the hate Bush first crowd

See Heres the thing, just as soon as they cross that border Illegally, they are automatically PRESUMED to be American Citizens, and that in my book is not right. Los Angeles, Denver, San Diego, and a bunch of other cities all have these Don't ask Don't Tell policies in place basically to protect these Illegals. (Contrary to what you believe, I am not opposed to Immigration, HOWEVER what I am opposed to is it being done by people sneaking over the border.)
Yes I admit that the Mexicians WILL DO jobs that other AMERICANS WILL NOT, Farm work, janitioral etc. etc.) I am however opposed to the playing field not being level.
How many Illegal Aliens do you think that our Medicaid and Medicare systems are funding? (now to be fair their likely are LOTS of Americans Collecting Too)
But common sense says that when you are supporting more than you are taking in money for THERE WILL BE A SHORTFALL.
I do not profess to have the answer to cutting down on the number of ILLEGALS coming into this country, but doing something is SURELY better than Doing Nothing at ALL.
In response to your earlier comment, about "exposing me for who I am", I am comfortable with who I am, I take Nothing Personally, So you can call me a racist, a bigot, whatever you want, all I ask is for a fair shake to defend myself and in RETURN I WILL ALLOW YOU THE SAME COURTESY!! My main belief in life is that for every action a person takes there WILL BE a consequence. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THERE A VICTIMS, and while that may seem extreme to some people, I was raised to believe that the only person you can depend on is yourself.

In response to: it is Sensenbrenner's bill that would make it a criminal act for you to help or hire an illegal alien. That is not the current law http://www.dol.gov/compliance/guide/aw.htm (follow this link and it will take you to the Immagration and Nationality act)
The part that I DO NOT understand, is that if this law is already on the books, why does there need to be another one?
And to think people honestly believe WE NEED A BIGGER GOVERNMENT!!

"illegals" do pay into medicare, medicaid, social security, and unemployment insurance. those are all taken as payroll taxes. but, because they don't have social security numbers, they usually don't collect what they paid in. they are- contrary to your rant- actually supporting the system that may otherwise go bust. the only folks who don't pay in are those who are paid in cash, but that's not limited to immigrants and its illegal.
