Subject: RE: BS:Alvin Greene-So. Carolina congressional primary
oh damn, that was supposed to be per capita, and even at that......, lets see, USA, 1 in 750,000, Mexico, 1 in 4 million. Mybad.
OK, sorry, that was as lame as saying there's a lot of illegal immigrants paying into the social security system, but we can't quantify it at all.
But the point is the same, there's a big corruption problem in Mexico and it's kept people there poor. I'm not buying Forbes' numbers though, its a lot higher than 10.
But, numbers are just numbers, and nobody's answered this....
Say you're on a jury, and somebody's on trial for doing something illegal, what do you say?
"Well, don't worry, partner, illegal's ok in these parts, lets go get us a drink"
I might, but that's me.
