    Bankruptcy 101






    It's easy to dismiss individual programs that benefit non-citizens until they're put together and this picture emerges. Someone did a lot of research to put together all of this data. Often these programs are buried within other programs making them difficult to find.

    A Real Eye Opener
    WHY is the USA BANKRUPT?

    Informative,and mind boggling!

    You think the war in Iraq was costing us too much? Read this: We have been hammered with the propaganda that it was the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be RIDICULOUS. I hope the following 10 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them. I also have included the URL's for verification of all the following facts...

    1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments. Verify at: http://www.fairus.org/site/PageServer?pagename=iic_immigrationissuecenters7fd 8 <http://www.fairus.org/site/PageServe...suecenters7fd8>

    2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. Verify at: http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML <http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML>

    5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. Verify at http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML <http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt...01..HTML>

    6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. Verify at:http://transcripts.cnn.com/%20TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML <http://transcripts.cnn.com/%20TRANsc...01/ldt.01.HTML>

    9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens. Verify at: <" href="http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRI%C2%A0<

    10. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home
    $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin. Verify at: http://www/. <http://www/..rense.com/general75/niht.htm> rense.com/general75/niht.htm< "

    The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS
    A YEAR AND IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY; IT IS $338,300,000,000.00 WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.

    Are we THAT Stupid?
    YES, FOR LETTING THOSE IN THE U.S. CONGRESS GET AWAY WITH LETTING
    THIS HAPPEN YEAR AFTER YEAR!!!!!

    Hmmm. The first citation talks about Immigrants in general(not Illegal)

    I don't know about these sources, but I, and my extended family are immigrants. We have 5 doctors, about 10 or more nurses, several lawyers and engineers(both civil and electrical) one Architect. I own a small boutique technology consulting LLC that grosses on the average 600k a year. And we all pay taxes.

    There is no one in my extended family of about 45 people are on the dole.

    Capulona, I am also from a family of "legal immigrants". Neither does my family take aid from the government. You need to read Ahab's thread again. It is specific to "illegal immigrants". There is a large difference.

    In the discussion of immigration, illegal or otherwise, I have noticed that those who favor immigration, legal or otherwise tend to lump them together. "Look at all the wonderful things immigrants have done for this country." And, "We are all immigrants", etc. No mention of legal or otherwise. To quote larryjk, "There is a large difference."

    Also, in all of the calculations of the cost to the US economy of illegal immigrants, there never seems to be, on the positive side of the balance sheet, a value number for the subsidy to the US economy for the reduced cost of their labor. The difference between what an illegal gets paid and what a comparable legal would be paid is a subsidy for the US economy.

    Social Security Checks Aug. 3rd

    According to Mark Levine on WGST talk radio. He is a Constitutional lawyer. He quoted from a U.S. House committee investigative session where it was discovered that the U. S. Treasury will have sufficient funds to pay Social Security and Veterans benefits for the month of August 2011.

    So the head of the Social Security Administration was questioned as to how these benefits would not be paid (Obama had threatened to stop Social Security payments on 3 Aug.).

    The committee found that Social Security does not have the authority to issue checks. The Social Security checks are issued by the Treasury Department headed by Timothy Geithner. Even Geithner does not have the authority to not issue Social Security unless he is directed by President Obama to not issue the checks.

    Pres.Obama alone will be responsible if Social Security checks are not issued starting on August 3, 2011. Every senior citizen and every American should work to remove this tyrant from the White House in 2012.

    Had enough change yet?
