What say you, C-D posters?
Makes sense to me. But I think we probably need to 'study' the situation more, and find a solution agreeable to EVERYONE....or so I'm told.

Want to cut down on the rate of burglary? Start by consulting the burglars...("what do YOU guys think ?").

WE need to ask ourselves, in the innermost recesses of our consciences, "what have I done...(what have WE done)..to make people SO ANGRY that they'd be pushed to the point of THROWING ROCKS at law-enforcement officers"?

The answer may surprise us. When's the last time ANY of you fine citizens took a gangbanger out to lunch, and REALLY LISTENED to what he had to say? Didn't think so.

Addressing the problem of border violence will ONLY be accomplished when the Border Patrol sits down with the rock-throwers, and sincerely attempts to see THEIR side of the issue.
At least, that's what I've been advised....by people close to the situation.

There is much truth to what you posted and you are absolutely correct! Our immigration laws are not broken at all, only to the people that want this invasion to continue of course.

Really saw no reason for you to delete my post, there were no personal insults in it. I didn't specifically call out anyone, what I did was say "you guys", that's hardly specific. What happened to freedom of speech?

I guess calling someone dumber than a bag of yakki hair is not a personal attack.

I'm not familiar with yakki hair...therefore I'm not CERTAIN it's an insult. I'll admit it doesn't sound very nice. What's a 'yakki', anyway?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think he misspelled it. It's spelled "Yaki Hair" which is basically fake hair. What kind of weak insult is that? LOL. I believe that's the equivalent to "YOU MOTHER TRUCKER".
