No, the topic of this thread is “I Am Undocumented” T-shirts.

But hasn't been for quite some time. I mean, sure, we're off topic, but we're hopelessly off topic. Embrace it.

Maybe you could start a new thread stating that illegals pay gas taxes so we should embrace them.

You are free to embrace it. However, I try my best to adhere to TOS. Yes, this thread is hopelessly off-topic, and I have no doubt Yac will close it pronto. But, I will not continue further with this off-topic discussion. Furthermore, hasn’t it already run its course?

People responding to posts of yours asking to clarify your positions is nonsense?

Wearing a T shirt that says they are undocumented [In other words ILLEGAL!!] is about like having folks wear T shirts saying I'm a rapist,murderer,thief,drug,gun dealer or whatever. Basically says they are proud of it and are gloating over the fact they have pulled the wool over everyone's eyes.

With the economy in the bucket, jobs going by the wayside. We cannot afford anymore in this country!! BUT it is NOT illegal immigration anymore! What we have going on is an invasion yup, an invasion of not only folks who are looking for a better life but terrorists, gangs, and other criminals. A lot of the illegals are now the criminal element sent here because the other countries no longer want them [ we just send them to Uncle Sucker, HE'LL take care of them when they screw up!]

I'd say it's like people wearing 420, and other pro marijuana clothing if anything. Comparing them to rapists, murderers and drug cartel members is lolbad.

You’re right. Most criminals do not flaunt their status. After all, most decent people would be too embarrassed to actually admit they lead a life of lawlessness.

But you want to compare them with pot heads and drug addicts!

Unsurprisingly you picked derogatory words. Let's walk this out for you. People are wearing the 420 T shirts because they believe that smoking marijuana either doesn't harm people or only harms themselves, like alcohol. They wear the shirts to bring the issue to light and to voice their political opinion. The "illegal T shirts" are doing the same. You wouldn't compare a marijuana smoker to a murderer, in the same way an illegal alien isn't comparative to a murderer.

There are other instances of people who believed that various laws and issues should be discussed so they brought it out to light. You wouldn't call a gun owner who wears a pin declaring he wants to have a fully automatic weapon or withdraw 3 day waiting periods "arrogant" you would think they are voicing an opinion to make the matter known.
