Empirical proof that this claim is true:

"The labor-force participation rate of foreign-born men in 2010 was 80.1 percent, a full 10 percentage points higher than the rate among native-born men."

It goes on to state many interesting things.

Illegal aliens are 94% employed. They are drawn to states that have lousy welfare benefits because they aren't eligible for them and it means they have less competition getting jobs since lazy white americans just sit around on welfare and don't want to work. Taxes tend to be lower in these states as well.

States report that illegal aliens help the economy because they depress wages across the board and this makes the state more competitive, causing economic growth as more jobs for illegals are created.

So?  Vote Republican.  They love firing people, then hiring illegal immigrants for slave wages.  That's what Romney did.

It's not surprising there's only 6% unemployment then.

I see them all the time on TV.  Fox News, the debates.

Oh, I don't actually WATCH Fox News anymore, it was taking too long to wash the vomit out of the carpets.  But from time to time Jon Stewart has a Fox News segment which is illustrative.

I can't listen to the Republican Debates real-time either, for the same reason.  They seem to be working hard to parrot more and more lunatic Conservative talking points past each other.  But I hear summaries from time to time.

I don't know who this Socialist Liberal Tax-and-spend Job-Destroying Obama is they keep talking about.  As far as I can tell, Obama is leaning over backwards to be moderate, almost conservative.  Why, before the oil platform burned down he was loosening oil drilling standards.  And his Obamacare?  Almost a copy of what Romney did.  And Unemployment?  It's been dropping consistently since Obama got his stimulus plan in place.

So yes, I know Republicans, at least Tea-Party Republicans.  Hey, if the shoe doesn't fit, don't fucking put it on your own foot.

States with lousy welfare benefits are also states that have lousy law enforcement where the state looks the other way and refuses to enforce laws that cover who is allowed to work in the US. That's how 82 year old women get thrown out of section 8 housing in Colorado because her SSN is being used by illegals to work at 50+ different jobs at the same time in CO, making her reported income too high for welfare.

I am just betting that you don't see the breed very much, if at all, on the coasts. Here in Ohio and similar places, they are everywhere and they are mainstream.

John Boehner comes from my area. Plus many others just like him. And that's the moderate contingent around here.

Your argument is that everyone not on the pro-corporate pro-war number line is irrelevant.

True, until the revolution comes, or the US is nuked by China. I agree that because of advocacy of the pro-corporate pro-war number line by people like yourself as the only acceptable solution, the US will be destroyed from within or without. That's your choice though, hope you can live with it, or die with it as the case may be.

Permalink Dr. Horrorwitz

You confuse a secondary identifying characteristic (color) with a primary defining characteristic (genetical brain structure).

Many clueless individuals or cultural Marxists do that.

They say: "A color can't possibly predict intelligence because a color is nothing but a reflection of the sun's frequencies".

Sure. But it is highly correlated with brain structure, because the two evolved simultaneously under different environmental factors.  The correlation is lighter skin tone correlates to higher intelligence, because colder climes require a higher IQ to survive.
