A bigger issue than Iraq?
The war may be on people's minds, but a completely different issue that most politicians are scared shitless of appears to be big enough to bring out protesters...illegal immigration.

-------------
Hundreds of protesters and counter-protesters assembled in this small Philadelphia suburb Sunday in response to the community's new attempt to crack down on illegal immigration.
About 200 protesters argued against a township ordinance adopted last month that bans the hiring and housing of people who cannot verify they are legal residents. A larger group massed across the street to support the new law.

People on both sides of the street waved American flags, but traded hostile remarks. Several cars drove past waving Confederate flags and shouting, "Go home!" while one person held up a sign that read, "We Are Home."

The ordinance punishes landlords and employers who house or hire illegal immigrants. Local officials estimate that as many as 3,500 illegal immigrants, many from Brazil, live in the town.

4. Don't you know?
"Those people" are the only thing standing between me and the Amurkin Dream! If only "they" would go back to where they came from, I could "get mine," too. At least that's what they (KKK)said down at the rally. :sarcasm:
