Reading McCain’s web site, Immigration

Immigration

Obama wants 25 percent of College Work-Study to be public service instead of jobs in dining halls and libraries. He also wants middle and high school students to do 50 hours of community service a year.(Obama’s Plan for Universal Voluntary Public Service, Integrate Service into Learning, http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/ObamaBlueprintForChange.pdf, July 31, 2008) That’s slavery, whether Obama’s black or not. Look, if you can’t afford to pay your workers well you shouldn’t be in business. However, the government can afford to pay people well simply by coining spending money. In response to the answer people always give to that, the inflation in Germany must have been caused by loans and profiteering because that is what causes inflation. According to what I read, McCain wants adequate worker protection to guard against employer abuses. He wants to secure the border through physical and virtual barriers, and prosecute employers that continue to hire illegal immigrants. McCain wants temporary worker programs that reflect labor needs and he wants to reduce waiting times for workers to arrive in the United States. He wants to ensure that workers return to their home countries after their temporary jobs are over, and wants all undocumented individuals to enroll in a program to resolve their status, for them to learn English, pay back taxes and fines, and pass a citizenship course as part of a path to legal status. McCain wants a system that is fair, humane, realistic, and ensures the rights of the individual and families will be protected.(http://www.johnmccain.com/Informing/Issues/68db8157-d301-4e22-baf7-a70dd8416efa.htm) Both candidates seem to have bought into balancing the budget bit. Before Reagan, as I remember, the government saw nothing wrong with paying back bonds by selling more bonds. That might have been because there was nothing wrong with it. It would certainly be better than putting junior high school students in chain gangs.The most recent fund raising letter from Obama I received said something like, “Win a ticket to see Michelle and Barack back stage at Denver.” McCain’s was like, “Thanks for the dollar. Could you spare another five to defeat the left? I don’t give tax dollars to win votes.”
