AMERICUS — What’s happened to the people?

What has happened to the people of this great land of ours? They have no respect for themselves or anyone else. Would you have believed the things people are doing? People out in the streets with no clothes on. People filling our parks with all kinds of things, leaving all types of filthy trash. Raping and killing our children. Will it ever stop? Does anybody care,

We have all this drug abuse, on top of all this. Our schools have completely abandoned our children, yet they keep blaming them.

Please Pray for our country and try to be America again.

"The proposal, which would require people who claim the federal credit to have Social Security numbers to prove they're legal workers, is being offered as a way to help pay for extending the Social Security tax cut for most American wage-earners. It would trim federal spending by about $10 billion over a decade." (quote taken from article appearing on Fox News website entitled "Republicans target child tax break for illegal immigrants" on 02/09/2012)

That's right folks! There is currently a proposal in Congress geared at requiring people who receive a refund check from the U.S. government to "to prove they're legal workers. You know what that means don't you? Right now, and all the while that our economy has been going down the toilet, the US taxpayer has been handing over checks averaging $1,800.00 to people who file tax returns and have not even proven that they are in this country legally!

How does that sit with you now that hunting season on the hardworking American taxpayer is in full swing?

Oh, by the way, two questions ... How much are you paying in taxes right now? How big is the Federal deficit?

God Bless (what's left of) America!
