Now that Congress is considering extending unemployment benefits, it’s hard to understand how they are also considering amnesty for illegal workers at the same time. Essentially, the amount spent on unemployment benefits is an indirect subsidy for employers of illegal workers.

We have a president who is not eligible to be president. Obamacare is unconstitutional, and on and on Obama goes. If he is not removed soon, this is the end of America. And nobody seems to be able to react to the usurper in office.
History is repeating itself. This will be a very bad year, I am afraid. I am literally afraid.
