    How is that these type of people gain positions of influence?
    It's mind boggling that people can even think that way.:(

    That was a long time ago. Savage is right on the money when it comes to(saving our) "Borders, language and culture".
    People come here just to live in NY and Cali just to go on welfare. Then these people think the illegal kids should go to our schools for free and then we have to learn their language to teach them. Any one is wecome to come to the US just come here the legal way.

    Oh yes, the veritible plight that faces the English language.

    Did you know that you could get a job in just about any country in the world teaching English simply because it's your native language? The idea that English needs protecting is only held by people who don't have the least bit of a clue about what goes on in the world.

    In Texas there are many Illegals on welfare. In California the health care system is in total collapse. The illegals just walk into hospitals(when injured) without insurance and the taxpayers pickup the bill. If a Mexican woman comes here and has a baby born in the U.S then she can get "free money" for food and housing. Do you remember the Mexican couple that came here illegaly, they had a Daughter that needed surgery. They took her to a medical center and she received a free heart transplant. Problem was they gave her the wrong blood type heart and she died. Now the family is sueing for millions of dollars. If I went to Mexico would they give me a free surgery? Sure.

    You're sorely mistaken on so many counts it's not even funny. The only "free" health care people in the US get is if they go to the emergency room. Everyone in the US, whether they were born here, are visiting here or are here illegally is guaranteed the right to access emergency medical services. Would you rather have everyone prove their ability to pay before they get any care?

    What about the jogger without id? Should the ambulance just leave her on the ground because they can't find any proof of ability to pay? Should someone who lost all their possessions in a house fire be refused emergency care? Should we just dump all injured people out on the street until they can prove they can pay? Oops, your ferret bit you while you were at the park, but you don't have id or insurance info on you. Sorry, come back next time, if it's not too late already, of course.....

    How would you propose we teach a child who can't speak English?

    Would you propose we don't teach that child? Or that we charge for that child's education?

    he has no solution. he's out only for himself. typical xenophobic, self-centered reactions.

    i'd be nutcase if i feared and/or hated everyone unlike myself. maybe that's why so many conservatives are nutcases.

    Since your own command of the English language is so fecked up, I fixed it for you. :D Glass houses.


    That was a long time ago. Savage is right on the money when it comes to (saving our) "borders, language and culture."

    Some people come here just to live in New York and California and go on welfare. These people think their illegal kids should go to our schools for free and that we have to learn their language in order to teach them. Anyone is wecome to come to the U.S. Just come here the legal way.

    I despise people like you, seriously. I don't totally disagree with everything you are saying, but man does your delivery suck.

    Did I click the right link? Why is everyone talking about illegal immigrants when that video was Michael Savage wishing AIDS on a "sodomite" caller?

    Am I missing something? :confused:

    It seemed uncalled for. Does he harass callers like this on a daily basis? If he does maybe I should listen to him more just for laughs.

    Someone brought up how Savage's views on boarder issues were "right on the money." I haven't heard him enough, so I shouldn't judge. But saying that caller should take a sausauge...shove it somewhere? Wishing he obtains AIDS? Come on, can we at least have a little more class?

    I'm glad you said "free", because it isn't. You still have to pay, they just don't ask for the money up front. Unless you go to a clinic, but good luck getting into one of those in a timely manner, unless you're pretty much dying. Even then. Too bad they keep closing all of the free or cheap clinics. Like 80 of them have been shut down in the last couple of years. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if we can't care for everyone, that's a problem with our healthcare system. I work at a hospital BTW.

    Illegals can't get welfare just so you know, but I do think they should speak English if they want to live/work here.

    (oh, and Michael Savage has always been a jerk)

    Seen that clip before. Yeah, it is old, but it shows Savage at his worst.

    In my book, he's right down there with Ann Coulter.

    I've a friend who at one point was a poor student with no job, and thus had no money and paid no taxes. One evening, he suffered from an angina attack and visited the ER. Considering his situation, he certainly couldn't pay the ER bill.

    I'm thinking he should have just sucked it up like the rest of us. Better yet, we should just deport him.

    IIRC, Savage was fired from MSNBC as a result of this little outburst.

    Actually, sadly, it isn't even his worst. His son is the maker of Rockstar energy drinks and affiliated with Girls Gone Wild though, which is kinda funny. Plus, his real last name is Weiner. No, I'm not kidding. Weiner.

    That is too funny. I actually decided to listen to him (on Tues?)and he went on an hour long rant about pornography. I found myself laughing hysterically.

    IMO, Savage is eat up with the terminal weirds. Even when he is correct on some issue, it's the old saw about blind hogs and acorns.

    Fact: SOME illegals from Mexico DO come here for the welfare benefits. It is not at all uncommon, although they're a minor percentage of all illegals. Probably the worst abuse, not limited to Mexicans by any means, is in the realm of supplemental Social Security, or whatever the technical label is. An elderly relative of a naturalized citizen comes here, signs up, starts a joint bank account with the citizen, and then returns home. Electronic deposit, nowadays, and the citizen sends some of the money to the relative and keeps some for himself. Per a Border Patrol friend, this was known to be common among the Greek community in Chicago. It's common in Mexico across from Columbus, New Mexico, and across from Douglas, Arizona.

    Language? Anybody is better off, economically, if they speak the native language of any country in which they reside. Teaching English to foreign chilldren is easy: You use bi-lingual teachers in kindergarten and in the first three grades in school, with the same teacher for a class during those first three years. At the end of the first year, the kids are tested for competency in English. The relatively few who haven't become proficient are held back for a semester or a year, with intensive help.

    My grandfather instituted that system at Metz elementary school in Austin, Texas, in 1946. Metz was over 90% Latin/Mexican kids. He had cooperation from the PTA and the teachers as well as the school board. Graduation rate with English proficiency kids going on to junior high was over 90%.

    No consultants, no federal money, little extra local taxes. Lotta success.

    He retired in 1954, after fifty years of teaching/administrating in public schools, and the program was dropped...
