Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Debunking the myth

Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been working toward helping to resolve the illegal alien crisis in Arizona. According to this report, he has also created some jobs.

All the malarkey about illegals doing the jobs Americans won't do? If this is any indication that is a complete lie. Citizens literally waiting for hours hoping to be interviewed for a job at a fast food restaurant. Not just a few either.

Kinda makes me think John Stossel and economic Professor Don Boudreaux might want to reconsider this opinion.

Does Bernie Sanders believe that America's future is made brighter by having American entrepreneurs and workers spending their resources, creativity, and efforts making trinkets?

The wages that would be paid to Americans employed in manufacturing such trinkets would be abysmally low by American standards - wages so low that, were today's unemployed blue-collar workers willing to work at such wages, they could likely today find jobs as clerks at fast-food restaurants or as baggers and grocery-cart fetchers at supermarkets.

Seems like there are a lot of people out there looking for that kind of work. And there are a lot more who should be looking, because it's time the free ride came to an end and someday soon, hopefully, the government is going to get the message.
