Perhaps you should confer with your compadres, because they donít want anyone to know their plans. Youíre blowing it.
Damn Benicar, you're just way too sharp. I'd be careful if I were you. If they found out someone out there had some brains was on to them..who knows what they'll do.

What part of ďconsider yourself ignoredĒ donít you comprehend? I responded to your post, and you accused me, in no uncertain terms, of stalking you and ďattackingĒ you. Consequently, this is the first post I have responded to since your scathing accusation. Whatís your problem? Do you want me to respond to your posts, or do you want me to (I paraphrase) ďLeave you the hell alone.Ē Either is fine with me.

Do what I have done. Keep those who are not worthy of your time or a response on permanent blast. That way you can post in peace. When they run behind you posting after everything you say in the hopes that someone will copy it and force you to read it and respond, simply ignore it. Some people on this board thrive on harassing others for lack of anything better to do.

Where does all of this BS come from? Why do some folks that don't don't support the views of the anti-illegal crowd so willing to attack the intelligence and reasoning of these people? Everyone has the right to their point of view, and if someone doesn't agree, it can be debated. There's no need to personally attack people on this thread.

Those are good..but my personal favorite was often used during the "Prop 187" debacle here in California (illegals to be ineligible for many social welfare benefits) during which angry illegals, furious with then-Governor Pete Wilson surged through the streets carrying signs stating "Pete Wilson YOUR Ancestors Came From Somewhere Else"....to which I always imagined Wilson responding in his mind, "Yes, my ancestors DID come....and YOURS did NOT...."

Admittedly, Wilson wasn't an easy guy to like...but this reasoning always eluded me...If YOUR ancestors had come here like MINE did, you'd be LEGAL. They DIDN'T, and you're NOT....so get mad at your ancestors...not me.

Strangely enough, as obvious as this concept appears, most illegals still believe that they have some kind of ancestorial right to US land. I guess then, they can still claim Spain if their efforts fail in the US right? Unfortunatly, once these folks realize that race and ancestorial claims won't defend their cause any longer, they may not have a leg to stand on so to speak! I guess that means that they'll continue to try to cram these useless claims down our throats for at least the forseeable future.

I think you know me well enough to know that I enjoy a good debate. What I donít enjoy is childish bickering, and deliberate attempts to incite. We can disagree and even express anger, but I wonít make time for nonsense anymore. This issue is much too serious to engage in sandbox debates.

Indeed I do and I can't say that I blame you for feeling the way that you do. You have been patient and polite despite the harassment. Unfortunately, some people take kindness for weakness.

Third World culture is a 'natural' mindset, based on blood ties, family, and ethnicity. First World culture is an 'artificial' construct based on law, which MUST supersede all of the above, if it's to work. You don't always comprehend this until you've been here awhile...and coming illegally IMMEDIATELY starts you off on the 'wrong foot'.
