So many threads get so long and a big problem is a lot of threads turn into illegal immigration when that was not the posters intention.
A lot of people are not trying to solve the problem they are so angry all they can do is spew hatred and venom, so someone else starts a new thread to get cleanse it.

I agree, how about a whole area dedicated to illegal immigration? Sounds great!

Why not make a game of it, a "Six Degreees of Illegal Immigration". Let's see how we can somehow tie a discussion to Illegal Immigration.

OK, I'll start.

1st Degree: I'm hassled by "day Laborers" at the local 7-11 in Virginia for work. Told them to get lost. (true!)
2nd Degree: Said "day laborers" have family in California. (true?)
3rd Degree: The Californian "day laborers" hassle a childhood friend at the local 7-11 for work. (true?)
4th Degree: Said friend hires "day laborers" for yard work because he has an audition for a movie. (true?)
5th Degree: Said friend gets part as an extra in movie, "Murder In The First". (true!)
6th Degree: Said friend is in courthouse steps scene with Kevin Bacon. (true!)

You'll see on the majority of illegal immigration boards that at least two people will start a argument with eachother and waste about 60 posts arguing.

rdbeard, thanks for playing but wrong type of game. Not tying it back to Kevin Bacon but to the thread topic. Say the topic is Gay Marriages. How can you tie it to Illegal Immigration:

1) Gay Marriages will lead to more wedding receptions.
2) Wedding receptions use cheap short term labor.
3) Illegal immigrants are a source of cheap short term labor.
4) More illegal immigrants will be needed to work additional receptions.
5) Gay marriages will lead to an increase of illegal immigrants.

Hmm, I managed to do it in 5 degrees. Nice.

I was thinking we need a seperate forum on Iraq. Those pop up at least 4 times a week and I can almost predict each same, tired, boring post - 4 pages of incoherent Bush-hate rants, 1 page of people wanting to nuke Iraq, 1 page saying it was Israel's fault, 1 page blaming Clinton, and 1 or 2 way-out there posts talking about the crusades or something.

5. Meat is produced by the meatpacking industry.
6. The meatpacking industry is notorious for hiring illegal aliens.
