    If the Federal Government wants everyone in the world moving to the USA they better make plans to pay for this “policy”. Maine’s taxpayers have NO responsibility here. If I go to work for a private business, I do not get benefits from day one, why should this guy?

    • “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, the tempest-post to me…” – Emma Lazarus, known widely as the words of Lady Liberty.

      Tux’s addendum to Liberty’s call to all – “Just make sure they are at least middle class and healthy!”

        Never cared much for Emma’s screed. 310 million and counting is just too many people.

        There is not a single problem we have in this Nation today which couldn’t be vastly improved by halving the population

          Really? You believe the problem is overpopulation? Are you bloody kidding me. NOT ONE of the problems “we have today” could be improved in any measure by halving the population. You would STILL have a lack of jobs (only half the people to buy goods and services so no need for the jobs making or selling them); you’d have even higher prices for most commodities because supply would be reduced by lack of labor and by lack of demand. Think it through.

          Only if you halve the over 60 crowd. You’re going to want as many younger folks as possible rowing.

          haha Yes, but we want to outlaw abortion, best thing we could do is give out free abortions and free contraceptives. BOOM I just solved welfare and reduced crime a boat load.

          You are absolutely right, Tux Katz. And there weren’t any people name of Katz when my ancestors began farming, fishing and preaching the gospel on these shores almost 400 years ago. So I guess you have to get the hell out; you are consuming our rightful resources.

    Of course a guy like Glover would appreciate the real life implications of this thinking with all his real world experience…the guys first “job” was in the exact same room as his last year as a student… just closer to the front.

    Well let us get back to the time when you cared for your own life. If we could stop to mooching we would attract only people who would contribute to the country. At some point the dependence on the government for all of some peoples lives has to end..

    I can’t say I agree with terminating eligibility for people already on the program with a demonstrated need. But I have no problem changing the requirements for new people, starting today. And if you walk across the bridge into the state this morning, don’t expect to receive any state benefits this afternoon.

    Funny, Jesus would say its unethical, But all the great christian right would say let them go, they are nothing but moochers!

    Either we are all compassionate humans in this country together, or we are beasts in the western Serengeti, and it’s everyone for himself. If the latter be the case, then may the Devil take this country and roast it like a piglet.
