Although Lewis Farrakahn (sic) does spread much hate, he also tries to teach good. He preaches not to abandon your wife and children, not to have children out of wedlock, and not to abuse alcohol. I'm sure no one will dispute that these statements need to be made, and that if followed they would have a good impact on society as a hole.

------------

Did you hear about the Walmart contest (I think it was Walmart)? The first baby born in 2007 gets $25k. They went to award it to the winner, and found out she was an illegal alien (not from Mexico). The denied her the money and gave it to the next person to have a baby. The contest rules even said that you must 'be a legal resident' in order to win. Then they caved in under pressure and gave her the money anyway. Know why they caved? Because illegal aliens are Walmart's best customers!!

Any dissenting opinions?

According to just released figures from the Justice Department:
Illegal immigrants who were caught but released in the United States may have been re-arrested as many as six times, Justice Department data released Monday indicate. The findings ... are based on a sampling of 100 illegal immigrants arrested by local and state authorities in 2004, the latest complete data available. They show that 73 of the 100 immigrants were arrested, collectively, 429 times — ranging from traffic tickets to weapons and drug charges.

Yet more evidence that our immigration policy and current system are broken. How can we continue to allow this to happen???

I honestly do not think anything will happen. (Unless we get the President to read this forum!!) Or get it on the news. People are two PC, it has become a way of life. People are afraid of being sued for saying something that isnt PC. The ACLU and other organizations have been allowed to go to far with their suits. Nothing will be done, it is going to get alot worse. I love America, but what is being done to her is a disgrace, I vote, I do what I can but it wont change anything, the government has made it so we cant just get rid of them and start over, they are suppose to work for us, but they dont, they work for themselves and their bank account.

That won't happen. Remember our beloved commander in chief doesn't read the news.

It isnt just him, it's the whole government, nobody there pays attention. From what I have heard even the new speaker has hired them to clean her house. The only way to make them listen is to NOT VOTE. No one anywhere come election day, that would get them all in a tizzy!! They would have to listen at that point, but it wont happen, most people just dont care anymore. They just keep buying into the politicians crap, it actually pains me to vote sometimes.

Does this bother you? They are not hurting anything.

2.Dumping Garbage on the Street
Yes, they need to work on that. They should receive a littering citation. But it's not going to kill anyone if they don't.

3.Pissing on the side of the building
Some of them don't have a porta-poty, it's not a huge deal.
If you couldn't find a porta-potty is this how you relieve yourself? Check out wehategringos.com. Then, tell me they respect us. You need to get out there with the ones that are not your friends. They are not here to appreciate our beautiful country they have not been taught respect.
