back to the Pope for minute... he's my Pope, even though I didn't have any voice in the matter, and I respect him for being the Pope
but he needs to keep with church business, and the Catholic church sure doesn't need someone running their mouth and making the Catholic church even more...what's the word...notorious? annoying? ...I can't think of a word to express my thoughts, but you get the drift
Catholic church is the leader in charitable organizations and providing for the needy and that is where the Pope should concentrate... if he wants to do some good, head over to the middle east and talk to the leaders there that are causing mass refugee migration and take his faith there to see if he can make some good there
America is not the problem
re: illegals working for cheap ... my contention is that the companies that are hiring them need to be prosecuted, fined, etc. so that whatever they think they are saving in wages paid becomes irrelevant... if they can't get American's to work for them, then maybe they need to pay better
... the constant lament is that these people ( and I believe most are GOOD people ) are taking jobs that American's don't want ... but if these companies were to pay decent wages, and pass along the extra cost to the consumer, there would be a way to break that cartel of cheap labor...
won't expand any further, but there's enough there to get teh thrust of my ideas
I have no problem with legal immigration. There is no reason whatsoever to come here illegally unless there is criminal intent.
