    We’re looking for smart and courageous people…

    Well, that lets me out. LOL

    You can choose what you want to work on . . .

    I’m not in favor of illegal immigration either, but I don’t think that married couples should be split up and kids raised in the US since they were two should be “sent back to Mexico.”

    There must be a way to make those links hot, but what I tried didn’t seem to work.

    Hmmmm . . .

    • Hi Cap’n!

      In the row of icons that begins with “B” (for bold), the 10th icon looks like a link from a chain. Highlight the word(s) you want to be a hot link and then click that icon. Up will pop a window that allows you to do that and make decisions like open the link in a new window/tab… It’s self explanatory once you find the right icon. If you ever wanted to ‘unlink’ something, you would use the next icon that looks like a broken link of a chain. 🙂

  4. I will seriously consider finding out what I might be helpful doing. Sometimes I let the overwhelming odds of Kansas politics make me think any efforts are useless and then I realize if everyone is as complacent as me nothing will ever change.

    I agree that illegal immigration is a huge problem – which did not just begin when Obama got into the White House (contrary to what many Republicans would like to think).

    But, seriously, do we really think we can round up and deport each and every illegal immigrant in this country?

    And the scenario that Capn brought up is a valid one – these kids did not choose to become an illegal immigrant.

    So, what is really wrong with just giving amnesty to those who are here and want to become American citizens. Put them on the payroll tax rolls and get some money coming in to cover those social program costs.

    Ah…….now you may see why Republicans do not want to give illegal immigrants amnesty. It is not about rewarding people for breaking the law – it is because if we are to count each illegal immigrant on their job – then guess what – those employers are going to have start paying payroll taxes and maybe – God forbid – give a decent wage and/or benefits.

    Oh, please God, NO…….. Anything but that….

    The illegal immigration problem can be laid at the front door of Big Business and small business now. What a sweet deal – huh?

    Heh. Wasn’t St. Ronnie Raygun the first one to grant amnesty in 1986?

      You’re correct. St. Ronnie also left a deficit and raised taxes.

      But the worst thing he did was – get ready for it – Reagan compromised with Democrats – and even said at the end of the day, each side should remain friends.

      Oh, what an evil person he must have been……to think Reagan used that offensive word – COMPROMISE. After all, Reagan was a politician and a good politician knows when to compromise.

      That is what is so laughable about these so-called ‘real’ Republicans of today strutting around putting Reagan right up on the golden throne with God himself. It is quite obvious these same folks do not have a clue as to who or what the actual Reagan was.
