    The WSJ does not agree with Friedman so why this charade? They have pushed for Amnesty since W was in office and if they got their wish we would have 15-20 million new Democrat voters sucking our social services dry, even more than now. See MAYWOOD CA. as Proof!

    Friedman understood and said what anyone should be able too comprehend…you can not have masssive immigration of un-skilled people and a huge welfare state, it can not and will not balance out.

    If you could take the profit only blinders off, you would see the effects of this destroying our economy since it started in the 90’s, as I have said for years.

    But Hey, i’m just an ignorant one-tricky-pony though, right?

      “See MAYWOOD CA. as Proof!”

      Proof of what? Did Maywood find a way to grant citizenship to undocumented immigrants?

      “If you could take the profit only blinders off, you would see the effects of this destroying our economy since it started in the 90’s, as I have said for years.”

      Statistically our economy started stagnating for the middle class in the 70s, not the 90s. Look at median income growth over that whole time period. It actually grew best in the 1990s. It has declined the most since 2000. It grew 37% overall from 1965-2005, but much of that growth is due to one earner households becoming 2 earner households. The best period of sustained growth was 1992-2000, better known as the Clinton years. The worst period was post 2000, or the Bush years.

      What this suggests Rick, is that your thesis needs either some re-thinking or different data.

      I meant to add, the problem is not that you are a 1 trick pony. Its that you may have picked the wrong pony to make your point.
