Awww Rubie... hit a nerve?
You still think we can and should let anyone in OUR country and we support them for life and generations to come?
Yup.. that's what you advocate but are afraid to say the words. Your decision to ignore the reality and acknowledge that what you falsely call compassion is nothing more than a guise to achieve political gain in power however false the perceptions are painted.
Again you fall back on your typical glib by attacking te poster. It would be so nice (and refreshing) if you would address the ISSUE (which neither you nor I are).
You advocate tens of millions of criminals invading the country and that hard working Americans (does that word hurt?) are forced to give them a very comfortable life by their own standards all the while lowering their own standards of living in doing so.
Where's the equity in that?
They are trash.. people who steal are trash. People who contribute nothing to society are trash. People who intentionally live off of others are trash.
You call the above "victems". I call them criminals which is what they are.. even using your beloved law definitions but... you turn a selective eye on those laws. How very convenient for you.
Your definition of morality includes rewarding criminals? .. or sodomy?
I think your parents failed you miserably. Put away your untuned violin.
Have a nice day comrade Rubie.
I'll continue to pray for anyone you have taught. They must be twisted.
You sound a lot like many hypocrites - ignoring your own faults, while misrepresenting those of others as though you are some sort of arbiter of society.
Newsflash: you aren't, and as a result you have next to no credibility.
The reason I know this is that you make no attempts to better understand the nature of problems and instead just jump to false conclusions and petty insults, because they're easier than trying to learn...much less admit what you don't know.
It seems clear to me that you've never given a thought to empathize with people who have less than you or think differently from you. That requires honesty and a little courage of your convictions. In other words, you can never be right if you were never wrong.
Even worse, you're a bigot...needlessly insulting and denigrating a whole swath of people who consist of far more than you realize...merely to score a point in an argument which was a fallacy to begin with.
Empathy should destroy the country? Is that what you advocate.
I'm not the issue.. what should be at issue is whether this country (whether for humanitarian or purely POLITICAL reasons) can afford to carry 21 (key word) MILLION people and generations to follow with a free ride.
You hold the option to discuss the issue or could swithch back to name calling and character attacks.
Why should only working Americans make 'financial sacrifices' in these difficult times yet nobody advocates the freeloaders to sacrifice... anything ?
Equitable? Only if you are here and on the dole.. OR.. find political benefit/advantage in thinking that way.
You missed the point, which is that there are more important things than money; that having MORE money does not give a person MORE moral authority to dictate who stays and who goes.
And again, you fail to realize the many. many sacrifices that immigrants endure just to get here in the first place...only to be scorned, ridiculed and dogged at every turn by people like yourself because of the color of their skin or country of origin.
Note the inverse of this is NOT inviting them all over for tea and cookies, but there is a continuum, and the best solutions are somewhere in the middle...
...such as granting the children of illegals amnesty but not the illegals themselves, i.e. versions of the dream act.
See how that works? You still get to play bad cop and punish the "criminals" (for what amounts to a civil offense) while not adversely affecting kids who, by ALL accounts, are just as american as you or me.
You must understand that I grew up in a city filled with immigrants from everywhere - from kindergarten through high school - and we all managed to get along with (mostly) little real strife. In fact, one of my oldest friends is the daughter of an illegal cuban immigrant; she now lives in Miami and is a die-hard republican...just like another old friend whose dad was american and mom was born in france.
We are - and always will be - a nation of immigrants, legal and otherwise.
