    You see? These people, mostly uneducated can see what their TRUE worth is to government – ECONOMIC.

    They took away their labor and caused actual economic disruption. All the stupid pathetic educated imaginationless losers in the UK who are marching up and down, and their brain dead orgainzers, like I have said many times before, are actaully exascerbating the problem because they are giving people a false sense of accomplishment, while the problem continues to persist. I can GUARANTEE you that if all the people who were against the illegal Iraq invasion and the ten to one who couldnt show up had simply STAYED AT HOME on a WORK DAY the economic damage and subsequent message would have been far greater than what was achieved by the illegal immigrants in the USA.

    In no other sphere do people act so STUPIDLY. If you buy something that is broken, you take it back for replacement or a refund, reflexively. If you want a beer, you go to the place where they sell it and you buy it. But when it comes to politics, people suddenly become amazing stupid; they pay without getting a guarantee, they pay without getting a recipt, they accept damaged goods in complete silence…what the hell is wrong with these people???
