    Re: GOP leader McConnell: Fourteenth Amendment is in need of review

    You are hopelessly misled by conservative flim-flam artists who have absolutely no clue what that language means and don't want to know. Children of foreign emissaries or enemy soldiers were excluded. Vicious conservatives intentionally misread these phrases to mean more people, many more people, maybe some members of your family, maybe you. Yes, let's see if we can find a reason to exclude you, alleged citizen!

    Are you saying that conservatives want to bring back slavery?

    Good for them. It needs to change. Its one on many things we need to do to fix the immigration issue.

    I've started to really like Lindsey Graham in these past couple of months and here he is again.

    That's the wonderful thing about our country. We can have honest open debate on issues and nothing needs to change...unless it needs to change. Nothing wrong with hearings.

    Perhaps it's time to have the SCOTUS interpret the Fourteenth. Their interpretation is the only one that matters.

The enshrinement in our Constitution of the principle that all persons born in this country are full, equal citizens means there is no underclass in America. It wasn't always so. There use to be an underclass; right up until America conducted the most bloody of all its wars. Some conservatives in this country it seems would like to undo some of that history.

    The underclass is growing, since the Liberals took over the government.

    The underclass is growing since incompetent, ideological conservatives ****ed up the economy.

    Re: GOP leader McConnell: Fourteenth Amendment is in need of review

    Look, I don't know a college educated person who would clean toilets or clear landscaping
    I did.. And I can tell you, if you need to eat, and or feed your family, you'd do it too. That's the problem with the culture of entitlement. It makes you lazy, and weak minded.

    I also picked fruit while going to college. My first ever job was stocking shelves at the Miracle Food Mart (now defunct) in Niagara Falls Canada!

    Why you might ask? Why would I stoop so low? Because I was raised to work hard, and taught that nothing is truly free in this world, and if you really, really want something, go out and get it, coz it ain't coming to in some magical fantasy world.

    See my point? For you to even make your comment is evidence of this dispicable culture that is now the American society. It's why everyone else is catching us..
