Have you ever allowed someone to borrow your car? If so, you'll understand that there are no carjackers...only people who REALLY WANT to borrow your car...NOW..and don't have time to explain why.

Thieves? Nope. Just people who want what you've got. They're really no different from 'borrowers'.

Shoplifters? Really, just another way of saying 'customers'. They enter the store, they select merchandise, and they leave. Just like customers, except they 'skip' a step.

Rapists? There are no rapists, either...just 'guys who have problems forming relationships with women', and can't seem to express themselves.

Drug dealers? Aren't licensed pharmacists really 'drug dealers'? Just that they deal drugs that are different from the ones out on the street.

"Illegal aliens"? No such thing. Just immigrants who've taken steps to 'streamline' the immigration process.

Thanks for this thread.
Great post, Macmeal

Unfortunately, far too many nutcases in our society accept this "logic and common sense" as gospel. ! ! ! !

i think this guy is a troll. and he probably isnt brown either. he said "la raza" in one of his other posts. only the anti-illegal crowd says that. others would say the name of an actual organization.

it sounds like he is jus tryin to start stuff, whether to incite more anit-iilegal sentiment here, or be funny, who knows.

but dont let this troll drag you under the bridge.

he has nothing real to say. actually a lot of you dont, but this guy especially. achury? what the hell is that?

In California, it's what our governor (Arnold Schwarzenegger) claims is one of our rights..."Da right to be tried in a Court of Law, before achury of our pierce". I don't know what it means in other states, but that's what Arnold says.

If Mexico can have extremely strict Immigration laws, why shouldn't the USA?
