Every American (except native American indians), by default, can trace their family history to find their ancestor who first came here as an immigrant. Anybody before that would be part of the wave of people who first got here, saw that there were inhabitants, realized that guns were better than bows and arrows, and basically slaughtered any natives who wouldn't sell them the land for a few beaver skins.


    You'd do well to rethink that.

    Haha, it is, but it could be objectively true that it is the stupidest question that I've ever seen. It could well be that I have never seen a stupider question, making my statement objectively true.

    Not a bad idea. After all its only an icon. I would also say to burn every flag in the USA, Confederate flag and normal American flag, as fantasy nationalism is an oppressive lie invented by dullards. Who doesnt hate dullards? Who doesnt feel anger at being faced with a wall of dullness coming from the nationalists and religious fanatics? Perhaps without such items we would feel a free and fresh life.

    I am not sure if your poll came to mind because you just watched planet of the apes or if it is because the President has brought the issue of immigration to the forefront of our media. I truly hope it is the latter.
    I have been saddened so often by so many people that I know who seem to want to draw such a hard line on immigration. We have a land of opportunity and it is vast and no one gets to say to others who are searching for a better life that you should have come over a few generations back! I do have an issue with entitlement benefits to all and any born here or not but if some one wants to come work pay taxes find a safe neighborhood to raise a family.
    The statue says give us your tired your poor your hungry; not come stay if you have a scientific expertise or your family has exploited natives in impoverished areas and now would like to move to Aspen.If we restrict immigration we should tear it down and replace it with a big finger.
    The poor from other countries have always been used and abused by the economic system of capitalism but from hardship comes ingenuity imagination and the desire to live a better life than the one our parents lived and for the first time that is not happening because capitalism is being choked out by goverment. Every civilization seems to come to its downfall when the rulers take too much from the people. Hey we know it takes taxes to provide roads, a military, heck I'm even in favor of universal education but there is a point where private enterprise is better and helping people get on their feet is not the responsibility of the goverment. I keep drifting back to entitlements because that is everyone's biggest concern with immigration, as it should be how much will it cost should always be considered but if entitlements are eliminated some of the stimulus to move here is removed if we work harder to make all places in the world better places to live no one needs to move unless they don't like the weather.

    I don't believe that the apes did it.

    In any case they were on this planet before humans evolved.

    Only after Egypt knocks down the pyramids and the sphinx. How dare they benefit from a monument that screams the glories of slave labor.

    Naw they didn't do it.

    Here we go full circle...the movie was an adaptation of a French novel.
    32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

    What say you?
    I think we should strip off the oxidized coating and then clear coat it with something to prevent future oxidation. That way it can be it's polished copper color forever.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I think we should get her some breast implants and dress her in a thong.
