I have been summoned by the recently banned Irishyoung, he wanted me to start this thread. I'm not sure what the issue it though, can someone fill me in?
The agency is working to make the language even more accessible to its target immigrant audience

No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
What did Irish get banned for, Teoing?
By the way, here's a handy flowchart for how people can immigrate legally to the US.
Lennay Blumpkin has a ring to it
I especially enjoyed the section that described how to sign up for government benefits upon your arrival. It might as well say "Don't worry about supporting yourselves, we've got ya covered. Come one, come all and over populate our once great country."
Oh and in before the Democrats tell us how great illegal immigration is, how we need more of it to support our economy, and food stamps and other similar government programs are awesome for everyone/don't breed government dependence.
Whats wrong with providing information to legal immigrants?
Ask the whole question. "What's wrong with providing information on how to sign up for food stamps and government assistance as soon as you get fast tracked through our amnesty program?"
TP30 approves this post
What amnesty program? Since when does Congress magically pass Obama's proposals?
Also do you have any idea how much the federal government spends annually on food stamps?
Here is a hint... 75 billion divided by 3.8 trillion = equals the percentage of the federal budget spent on foodstamps
You guys get mad about the stupidest shit.
The mortgage deduction deprives the US goverment of $100 billion a year.
Instead of getting pissed off about food stamps, maybe you should complain about people that own homes. Since the mortgage deduction costs the US more in tax revenue than foodstamps. The mortgage deduction also punishes people that don't own a home.
Somehow I am willing to bet that all you numb nuts that own homes, will find a convenient excuse about how the $75 billion spent on food stamps is worse than the $100 billion taken away from government coffers.
Am i right?
Derpa derpa der Fox News good reality bad derpa derpa der.
Your entire post was a fail but this nugget stood out.
The people that actually own homes are the ones having to pay for the people who live on government assistance, so I think being able to deduct the interest on our mortgages is a pretty fair trade.
And lol for talking about the U.S. government being "deprived" of anything by the taxpayers, you condescending jackass.
Wait....now owning your own home is a bad thing? I'm confused on exactly where this argument is going.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
Yep. I just hope to God he/she isn't a Bama fan.
Definitely what it sounds like.
Bump for you bastards who are ruining our country by being home owners.
That rms dude is a big bucket of dumbass
Food stamp users >>>> home owners

Wish I had some popcorn, but I gotta pay the mortgage so it can wait.
Why does owning a home entitle you to FREE MONEY?
Where you alive during the housing bubble? Can you think of a reason why a tax incentive to purchase a home may have contributed to the housing bubble? Does free money not increase the overall prices of homes by artificially increasing demand?
It is one of the hundreds of examples of "ENTITLEMENTS' that go to the Middle class. These "ENTITLEMENTS" never get brought up in these "government is bad" political threads.
The mortgage deduction tax credit which costs the US government over $100 billion a year.
$100 billion in tax credits > $75 billion in foodstamps.
Do the math.
A TAX CREDIT IS A HANDOUT!
A Tax credit is a SUBSIDY, A food stamp is a SUBSIDY. It has the same effect on the government balance sheet.
Deductions that have been added into the tax code cost the US government $1.1 trillion annually. That easily covers the deficit without
even looking at spending (yes we must cut spending drastically too).
But instead of complaining about the $1.1 trillion in tax credit HANDOUTS that mostly go to the Middle class, everyone acts like a $75 billion Foodstamp program created the deficit.
I can't buy a mansion with the housing credit but I can buy lobster and filet's with food stamps. Maybe if they had TV stamps the people on food stamps wouldn't steal mine.
Again, the housing deduction is one of dozens of examples of things that cost the US government more than food stamps.
It was just an example, I pay a mortgage too but you guys are missing the point.
We should eliminate all the deductions and lower the overall tax rate. That is the fairest way to go.
Do you receive a tax deduction for the interest paid on your mortgage or for the taxes you pay to your state and local governments? Would you think about those deductions in the same way if instead of seeing a reduction in taxes for those items the federal government instead simply sent you a check for the same amount?
