CEOs? There you go, blaming the ones that aren't to blame. And, how is mexico kicking our azz? ONE big problem is having to teach the illegals spawn in spanish instead of insisting they have to know and speak English to attend our schools. How many languages should we speak in our schools, seeing as how there are students from all over the world? Why are the illegals so special?
