I agree with you blacknight
Nope - you've got it all wrong. Endorsing the act of others breaking our laws is the unpatriotic part. I do realize this will fly right over your head just like everything else everyone in the forum says that you refuse to acknowledge.

You see it one way and i see it another way. Btw, it's okay for people on your side of the argument to call posters on my side of the argument illegal aliens and unpatriotic, but i can't say some on here have a bigoted point of view?

I guess it is okay for talking about shooting them, and we are told we hate our country.

I shall not speak for others - I can speak for myself however and, I have never done what you suggest - NEVER

Again, skirting the subject and resorting to veiled insults instead.

Apparently, in your world, reasonable people are the ones you agree with. Seems pretty unreasonable to me, and makes for a lopsided debate.

You're officially the first person on my ignore list - hasta la vista.

Really, I consider the direct message I got from a member here yesterday
with messages from "your friends" much worse than pro-illegal and unpatriotic. Would you like to deny it because I still have it.
BTW as usual blacknight you are right on!

I relayed what others said. And, to be honest - they are / were right on

These same people that complain about illegals breaking the law probably at least break traffic laws every day! Last time I checked traffic laws are laws too. Their arguments are pretty hypocritical if you ask me.

Doesn't really matter because the illegals will keep coming and you can't stop them. They will end up taking back their lands some day I suppose.
