    These are shitty low wage Jobs… Nothing to write home about… Also, we
    dont need immigrants, that lowers wages… If an American wont do a Job
    then import the product…

  • eurocasey 5 years ago

    bill trully believes unemployment in the country is down to 5%, and he
    gleams how 911 wasn’t a inside job? Do you really want to ride with Bill?
    Bill is just a social climbing fool -he’s no true artist like George Carlin
    (Bill says is his mentor). Bill loves to kick islam in the face eventhough
    the blood on american hands is in the millions. Bill is a charming fool.

    Yes, unemployment is down to 5.1% and the economy has been growing for

    Make up your mind, Liberals. Are jobs and the economy doing great or we
    need to keep propping up our workers?

    I’ve been saying this entire time, Trump was planted in the race just to

    Nobody wants to work those jobs. Shit most of the jobs in this world people
    don’t really want to do. It’s a misconception of how the question is
    represented. In Americans eyes, asking if they want to do a shitty job with
    bad pay, would get majority no, but if you asked them if you need to feed
    your family and these jobs were reaching out to them, then majority of
    Americans would do it if there options are slim. (Jus how illegals options
    for work is slim) I feel Americans hardly have even the opportunity to be
    aware of such jobs, because of the lack of outlets for it. And how
    companies prefer illegals because it’s cheaper and quicker.

  • Tripleexel 5 years ago

    Lool don’t tell Americans illegals do jobs Americans don’t want to do. It’s

  • Bob Walsh 5 years ago

    They dropped out of the labor force because they stopped looking for work
    you crazy bitch (there are no jobs). The answer to that is not more low
    skilled migrants. It’s so fucking obvious they want these migrants coming
    in to destroy the white vote (they vote Republican), and turn America into
    a one party state.

    Good fucking luck keeping whitey happy when you take away his right to self
    determination via the political process.

    Trump is good friends with the Clintons. He contributed to Hillary’s

  • Brandon Speagle 5 years ago

    The fact that Bill compares the likelihood of the Donald being the
    Manchurian candidate to the likelihood of 9/11 being a conspiracy is so far
    removed from each other if I didn’t know any better I would think Bill is a
    media mole directly involved with such a conspiracy to gut the republicans.
    While it’s not the most likely of scenarios, it’s MUCH more likely that
    Trump has a hidden agenda. 9/11 conspiracy theorists are the laughing stock
    of every comment section covering every 9/11 related story in existence and
    otherwise, at least there is some tangible evidence lending credence to the
    trump mole plot. I honestly think 9/11 conspiracy theorists just can’t come
    to terms with the harsh reality of what happened, it honestly may just be
    too painful for those folks to come to grips with the harsh reality of what
    happened on 9/11. You can liken it to a coping mechanism that has had a
    head on collision with the pattern seeking brain..

    Why is it liberals never seem to be able to differentiate between illegal
    immigrants and legal immigrants? If the U.S needs more immigrants, (and
    that’s debatable) then sugggest making it easier for immigrants to get a
    green card, but don’t defend people who break the law by coming here
    illegally and say “we need immigrants” that’s no fucking excuse! Why should
    people who come here illegally be awarded with citizenship while people who
    applied for a green card, got turned down and then obeyed the law by not
    coming here be short changed?

    NO ONE…in the entire history of this country, has ever been elected
    president unless they had heal elected office prior. the only exception to
    that rule, are presidents elected that were former military generals. to
    imagine a man or woman elected to political office as the president of the
    US is unimaginable. that would be like asking a dentist to perform brain
    surgery. you need some political experience as a governor, a member of
    congress, or as a secretary in a presidential cabinet, to at least know how
    the ship is run, what knobs to push, what direction to go without causing
    the ship to sink, IF you want to be captain of that vessel.

    There is one aspect of Trump that makes he seem far more sane than all the
    other Republicans; he’s not a religious fanatic. He’s not going on about
    the bible or Jesus this and Jesus that, and that god wrote the constitution
    or that the laws of god superseded the constitution. Trump is a creep, but
    he knows how to play one American jingoism and fears and inherent racism.
    But at the end of the day he doesn’t scare me like all the other
    republicans and their scary christian 12th century hate and nonsense.

    you know the biggest lie the media is telling us is that immigrants do the

    the job at a cheaper rate than a black or white man, its the market system.
    you don’t think for one moment there aren’t thousands of unemployed
    Americans who would love to have a construction job or any job, but they
    don’t want to be paid in peanuts. They want an actual wage to live off of,
    but if you have another person that will do the same exact job at a cheaper
    rate that saves the company money by hiring a cheaper labor force.

    Donald Trump isn’t against immigration, he’s against a flood of

    gaining power, so people have to escape Earth in spaceships to reset the
    sanity meter someplace else. Double-digit IQ’s have been given control of
    Congress, providing distractions and defenses for the 1%, and offering
    chances for quick, cheap power to clowns like those at the GOP “debate” in
    front of Air Force One. At the extremes, radical Right and radical Left
    wrap around and become the same thing. Manchurian Candidate, indeed.

    Trump is only there to keep the Bush family name in his shadow. He will
    drop out at the last minute and a 3rd member of the Bush Dynasty will ease

    It’s amazing that this panel of establishment liberals complains that Trump

    just knows the political game doesn’t involve giving long lectures on
    policy, and you don’t need a phd to know that importing tens of millions of
    the worst and the dimmest is not good for American citizens (let’s compare
    this policy to Israel immigration policies: DNA testing of Jewish heritage
    for citizenship, detaining 30,000 African refugees in detention centers,
    and even how they forcibly injecting birth control to illegal
    immigrants…all well-documented facts. Oh btw which ethnicity is

    Rushdie. What are you talking about, comparing Trump to Corbyn? Astonished
    by your willingness to swallow Blairite nonsense wholesale. And you would
    have it you’re some kind of intellectual?

    Corbyn is not some irrational reaction to moderate politics in the way
    Trump is. He proposes to do some very positive and simple things.

    Why are the following ideas such pie in the sky for a supposedly large
    section of the parliamentary labour party, and also, anti-Corbynite that
    you are, you?

    -Utilities owned by the UK govt rather than a nationalised French or
    Chinese company

    -Free university and college education of the sort that you, Andrew, and
    most of the milquetoast labour MPs enjoyed in their youth

    -A housing market that isn’t entirely delinquent and speaks to the
    reasonable expectations of the ordinary voter

    -An NHS that isn’t carved up by private, profit driven interests

    -A welfare system that isn’t run on the premise that every unemployed or
    disabled person is a shirker or a scrounger

    -An economy that rewards productive industry and penalises the delinquent
    financial sector that worked so hard to destroy the economy in 2008 and
    continues to work for a new disaster tomorrow

    -A nationalised transport network like those that serve France, Germany and
    yes, Spain, so well.

    Why? Why are the ambitions to work for these things so unreasonable?

    Once you have answered this question we can move on to something harder,
    which is the question, Given our present situation, after 36 years of free
    market policies, what is it that we should be so grateful for?

  • malia b 4 years ago

    No, just try to take a job away from an illegal and see what happens. They
    will mess you up. They will do everything they can to sabotage you and make
    your life miserable and this has been going on for a long time. And
    furthermore, illegals are not better workers or parents and they might, I
    SAY MIGHT, work for less but will make up for that somewhere and they are
    growing very rebellious and weary of feeling cheated and exploited. Where I
    live a white person cannot get a job at most of the restaurants and stores
    and the motels are taken over by Indians. I have seen my whole life how it
    really is. I asked at a Mcdonalds why they didn’t have any white people
    working there and the Manager said that it was because they couldn’t find
    one that wasn’t a felon and if I could find one to send them their way. I
    asked at a convenience store if they would hire white people and they flat
    out said NO. And the white people are the biggest problem because they will
    say Oh I will just hire a mexican or you shouldn’t be doing that, it is a
    mexicans job. wtf? And don’t get me started on the Chinese.

    An ill informed panel of puppets. Followers of the elite establishment. You
    can buy Donald Trump. No special interest groups can get to him. The 1% is
    really trying their best to knock him off the campaign trail. Why is that?
    Because he’s going to make America a fair place to do business, and when
    Donald Trump becomes president, he’s going to reopen all of the
    investigations into the smuggling of mass amounts of cocain and money
    laundering empire the Clintons founded and then paid to cover up in
    Arkansas. The Clintons and many other will be going to jail. Two young boys
    were murdered and their bodies thrown onto train tracks in an effort to
    hide the involvement of the Clintons in this massive cocain and money
    laundering operation…….. as well as many other good, honest, hard
    working individuals in and out of law enforcement whose lives have been
    taken or destroyed . Do a little research and you’ll easily find out how
    incredibly evil the Clintons are.
