And about the left constantly blurring the line between legal and illegal immigration: this is very true. This obfuscation is disgusting.

I have been (implicitly or explicitly) labeled a racist several times on these boards by self-righteous liberals who would be better served directing their venom at the far right. They start insulting me and when I get mad and use "strong" language, the mods here ban my posts. Meanwhile the intellectually lazy liberals put the most condescending and insulting posts on here and then give each other reputation points and high-fives. They use glib sarcasm to hide truth and complexity.

These people make me truly sick. Many of them are more hateful than many of the "conservatives" I was brought up to distrust. (I am in my 30s and I was brought up on a steady diet of cultural liberalism. I am squarely a Gen Xer / member of the 13th generation. We are the bastard offspring of the much-vaunted baby boomers.)

What seems to shut the pro illegal crowd up is when I flat state that I am extremely prejudiced-------------against illegal aliens irrespective of race/ethnicity. The above seem dumbfounded and are left speechless.

Default Stick of truth

I am a "legal" immigrant - no healthcare, no money, no job 11 months now because of the economy - living hundreds of miles from my American wife seeking work - only my wits and some really good Christian friends as in Christian first, American after - thank God you were not born in an impoverished country where the only thing you know is a desire to be like the people you see in American movies, sad that once you set off down that really long hard one way road to seek the "dream" you find like all homeless people that the only time you are noticed is when you smell bad... that’s normally after you have died after starvation because those around you are soooo self centered that they don’t want to see your pain or do a thing to help. when you are in that dark place of deep loss and depression all you will seek is the solice of oblivion in a bottle - cleaning up the mess is as far from the mind as you are from offering a smile - I pray when you face your maker one day that with a clear conscience you will be able to explain how you loved your neighbor and that you disserve the same love be shown to you.
It is not the size of your pocket they seek - for you could never give back what is lost, only God can - The size of your heart or a smile maybe some food - have a little time somewhere and realize how fortunate you were to be born into this world of privilege and not theirs where a life is worth less than a loaf of bread.
