If you haven't noticed, this thread is being Hi-Jacked.
These pro-illegals aren't even worth responding to.

I guess i do not understand this at all. I do have many hispanic friends, the odd thing is that in front of their homes, they proudly fly the American Flag, and i am not kidding. Now that Obama says he is going to do something about this failing economy, i wish so badly, he will start to do something about our illegal problem, THAT WOULD BE A NICE CHANGE!

You are not the only one on this thread that has made ascinine remarks regarding this issue. Look, this is a losing battle. A sad one nonetheless, but a losing one. It would be nice if we could keep America safe and make sure everyone is naturalized that came from another country. As much protesting or debating or even seats lost, which will definitely take place in November it is an uphill battle this reform for illegal immigration.
You would be wrong that this travesty would continue towards the American people endlessly by us voting them and their replacements out of congress. Even a kid when punished often enough for their wrongdoings eventually gets the word and stops their negative behavior. The last time amnesty was proposed the phones to our politician's offices rang off the hook and their fax machines were bombarded with opposition. Well guess what? It worked....no amnesty!

As for the asinine comments in here that is merely your opinion. You obviously have an agenda so anything that would oppose your viewpoint would be considered asinine to you.

I have NO agenda--None whatsoever. Just engaging in this thread. That's all. I don't think this Administration is doing enough on many fronts. Really truly I don't.

Would anyone's opinion change if it turned out that these guys in the truck were skin heads or KKK members and shouted racial names at the marchers?

Point is, we don't know what was said before the guy, illegal or not, grabbed the flag out of the guys hand. So don't make assumptions until you know all the facts.

Because political correctness demands that if someone is not caucasian then they are a member of a minority. Being granted minority status also allows a person to say anything they want without reprocussion. One could say all white people will burn in hell and it's fine because they have freedom of speech. But, to be white and say something like that???? I kinda wish I was a minority so I could say whatever I like and not be accountable for it.

Like wearing a Chargers jersey and sitting in the Raider Nation section in Oakland. Just a bad idea. 3) If someone was burning the American flag, would you stop them? If they resisted, would you use force?

We have the freedom of expression here within certain restrictions. We can peacefully gather. We can express our opinions without fear of government reprisal. But there are right ways and a wrong ways of trying to get points across. With this freedom comes great responsibility and the need to act in as responsible a fashion as possible. Getting in someone's face or trying to "shove an idea down someone's throat" are rarely effective means of communication.
Very well spoken

While it may not be a pleasant idea, I genuinely believe that in some cases the death penalty should be expedited and without remorse. Regardless of ethnicity.

Thank you for your service to our country. I appreciate it.

It cracked me up when he told me what he was going to do.
WAIT WAIT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD TELL HIM NOT TO!!!! If he does that it means he's being culturally insensitive and racist! Make sure he understands that if he shows ANY amount of patriotism that he is discriminating against the greatest gift from the Almighty that Man has ever received.....Mexico, in all its greatness and splendor. Instead he might consider coughing up more of his retirement to feed and clothe illegals who care nothing for this country.

(If people couldn't catch the sarcasm then we have a problem)
