Hahaha!

Overall, you guys have been very polite and tolerant of your patriotic and conservative American guests.

But someone didn't like Tex's beautiful granddaughter as an avatar, so ... out of politeness ... he changed it. (Hehehehe ...)

The picture doesn’t do “Emma” justice, but it’ll do for now. She is named Emma for the emerald green tritium sights and grips.

I look foreword to seeing your granddaughter. It’s nothing personal, but I think your house is an eyesore. :bgrin

Have you worked out that economies never provide enough jobs for the entire population yet?
Those that look for work can find it. Just like my parents, I started with nothing and am doing just fine.
So did you deliberately avoid acknowledging my comment or not? :roll

I guess my answer had an "assumed" NO in it. We have more jobs available than people to fill them at the moment. It's a workers' market. Even my 17 year old has 3 jobs going for the Summer break and they are competing for his labor. He's working about 50 hours/week.

If you want to pay for their crime, education, and medical care. I have to get extra car insurance just in case they cause a wreck without having insurance. We have a waiting list. They can get in line and wait their turn.

We take in about 1,000,000 legal immigrants every year.

But a dearth of workers drives wages up, and that's a good thing. A glut of workers holds wages down.

No Aussie, allowing South America to just move here illegally by the untold millions is not the answer.

Yes...that is what is also reported here. Arkansas will be blood red in political terms so she might get up despite being an arsehole of a liar also.

It'll be "blue" again if Suckabee becomes Governor.

Her dad was a pretty popular governor. I don’t think she would be much different.

She has got a lot of grit, and she has weathered vicious abuse from the left. I would be proud to have her as the governor of my state.

That doesn't make her a good person.

She lies about lying.

A horrid woman.

I wouldn't want her as my dog walker.

The other side of that same coin was that some of our blokes came up with the expression, 'Over here, over-paid and over-sexed.'
