Jeb Bush: U.S. economy
needs immigrants because
they´re ´more fertile´

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 6/14/2013 12:14:16 PM

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) argued Wednesday that the United States should pass immigration reform because the U.S. economy needs the labor of young immigrants, and immigrants are “more fertile.” “Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans,” Bush said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to the Majority conference. “Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.” Bush said immigrants are an advantage that the United States has over China, Europe and Japan, which don’t have the same

Comments:
Never mind that young salaried workers are taxed so heavily that they postpone having children (sometimes waiting until it´s too late), or that many of Mr. Bush´s "fertile" immigrants have large families here because they are rewarded richly for doing so, with money expropriated from our wages.

Soon the US will have an economy as healthy as that of Mexico. Olé, Señor Bush!

They are coming for YOUR job. Since they won´t be covered by Obamacare laws. The employers will hire them before they hire you because the employer will not have to buy insurance or pay a penalty or be punished if they have more than 50 employees.

Gee, Jebster...
Europe has been trying to deal with its own massive immigration problems for decades now.

Didn´t you know that?
The Yerps are overwhelmed by all kinds of furriners, many Islamic btw, and it´s because
they bought into that "aging population" argument and let them all in to "save"
their moribund economies and support all their socialist entitlements.

Sound familiar, Jebster?
Yep... you are an idiot, Jeb.
Go away, all Bushes!
Yo momma was right about that and about you, Jeb.

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans,”

Is that because they haven´t faced
a life time of NO!s from
the regulatory Hyper-State,
or because they simply
don´t care about our laws?

Under the structure of Federal, State, County, Township, Municipality, HOA
no people on earth are as regulated as the
"Freedom and Liberty" loving American people.

Something to think about this coming 4th of July.

What?! Aside from the stupidity of this remark, immigrants are not more fertile. More fecund, maybe. And is that such a good thing? How about encouraging Americans to have more children? Instead, our government is actively pushing birth control and abortion on its native-born population.

Maybe white, educated professional couples would have more kids if so many of their tax dollars didn´t go to support illegal aliens and their babies.

My husband and I had the number of children we could afford to feed, clothe and educate. If someone else is paying the bill, you just don´t care about responsible behavior and you breed like rabbits.

Do listen everyone to Mark Levin´s show 6/13/2013. Again, he gives us facts and background we will never hear on FNC. These stupid commercials encouraging support of this bill? Funds came from guess who? Mark named a long list of - BUSHIES, former associates, staffers. They are pushing this hard. Why? It is partly because so many lawmakers, Chuck Grassley included, AND Jimmy Carter all get nice fat farm subsidies for their farms. They want cheap labor for their businesses. They want to drag American wages lower. We cannot allow ourselves to listen to the likes of Jeb Bush.

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans,” Bush said

Only because native born Americans are working hard to pay benefits to those illegals that you and other politicians feel are so necessary, no native born American can create a business because they can´t save up for the start up costs thanks to politicians.

Just when I think that Jeb can´t say anything more stupid.

One thing I have noticed about immigrants - both legal and illegal - is that few end up picking tomatoes in the hinterlands and instead most end up crowding into already crowed urban areas. Existing Americans find that housing costs go way up in response to the crowding and they find that they cannot afford the living space for a family.

These we-all-get-to-live-in-rabbit-hutch government policies is what helped do in the Soviet empire.

I further examined that information...it was wrong, Columba was never charged with shoplifting but rather that she hadn´t declared enough to customs. That chapter seemed overblown as payback to embarrass Geo W bush during an election cycle. Beyond correcting the record on shoplifting that did not occur, bush and his comments are globalist and I do not support him.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
