    we cant cure the ills of every person, all over the world

    it is impossible

    there are thousands/millions in THIS country that dont get the required help they need as it is

    just how deep do you think "our" pockets are?

    only so much money.....only so many people we can help

    how about we take care of our vets, and our homeless

    once you got those problems licked, you can start on feeding the hungry, and getting everyone a decent job

    I reached my conclusion based on the fact you're so enthusiastic in your support for those who break laws as a matter of their daily lives. I mean, committing felonies is a big deal, but you seem to encourage it, so I don't see how any other conclusion could apply.
    Blockading a bus is breaking the law.... hence the need for riot police..... so do those folks hate America too or is this just a matter of you cherry-picking which laws you deem to be fair?

    What you think of me means jack **** to me, I could care less. I find it telling, though, that, rather than engage in an actual debate about the issues, you chose to attack my patriotism.

    I'm not stupid enough to fall for that manipulation. I believe in right and wrong above all else, and it's wrong to greet a busload of people (including women and children) with pitchforks and violence.


    You want to know what it is to be American, how about what's written on the ****ing statue of liberty....

    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door
    Give me your tired, your poor, your tired, poor."



    It doesn't say turn the poor away with pitchforks and protests.

    That's not actually correct.

    If his family's descendance trace back to colonial times, then yes...you're correct.

    If his family's descendance trace back to a time when the country was already established, and they LEGALLY IMMIGRATED into the country, then he would not be because they wouldn't be trespassing or encroaching on the governing body of the land they came to.

    Sadly, we are rapidly becoming a nation of border invaders.
    People used to just jump on a boat and show up. The pattern of migration hasn't changed at all. The only thing that has changed is 1.) our immigration laws have changed to become less welcoming and 2.) people are migrating from a different part of the world today.

    So his family legally immigrated during a time when we essentially had zero immigration law, then the decedents of those immigrants change our immigration law to where future prospective immigrants don't have the same opportunities afforded to his ancestors.

    I'd rather chaos than vigilantes. Nothing has ever endangered the U.S. more than vigilantes. What is one man's right is one man's wrong.
    It was vigilante rednecks from the south and factory workers from the north who finally got enough of overreaching government and started this country.

    Given your seeming support for national policy being based on notions from 1886, I take it you also believe women shouldn't be allowed to vote, schools should still be segregated, Congress should consist of only 76 Senators who are not elected by direct vote, the Dakotas along with Hawaii and Alaska (amongst others) should not be considered part of the USA, and the income tax shouldn't exist on a federal level.

    Interesting world you live in. For myself, I prefer to recognize that the context of the times something is said in can impact the legitimacy and import of it's words.

    Well, the "wretched refuse" part is being addressed on many levels isn't it? Both in the make up of the invaders, and those who encourage it.

    His family may've done that. I don't know his history. But yes, laws change over times depending on the context and situations surrounding them. That's how things work. How exactly was this in any way a counter to my correction of your claim?
