There must be limits on how many bodies/vehicles/etc. can occupy a specific space though, because too much or too many can effect others.
What you just opined on I do agree with---------which is still a far cry from 2-3 families even with 2 kids each living in an 850 square foot 2 bedroom apartment.

Commentary by Frosty Wooldridge
September 17, 2004
The Washington Dispatch
Topics: Disease, Health Care, Gangs, Terrorists, Congress, Senate, President, Laws, Americans, Immigrants

CNN's Lou Dobbs speaks about this national crisis weekly. O'Reilly dabbles in it with reluctant flippancy. FOX NEWS ignores it. The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and Miami Herald support it. La Raza, a national Hispanic pro-illegal alien and open-borders organization, licks its lips at the speed of this invasion. But, finally, TIME MAGAZINE exposed it with sobering pictures and interviews.



Illegal aliens bring Americans Third World Momentum. That includes crime, drugs and diseases. Sooner or later, every American community and millions of Americans will be affected as we allow three million illegal aliens breaching our borders annually without regard to their health, criminal background or drug expansion endeavors.

In TIME'S "WHO LEFT THE DOOR OPEN?" September 12, 2004, journalists Barlett and Steele exposed the ugly side of this invasion.

So, as there is no way to determin from just sight, wether a person is legal or illegal, I guess you treat everyone as if they are a Felon?

in Europe many families live muti generation is one house. lots of ethnicity do this, Hawaiians among them. in a down economy there are added benefits. for people who were brought up in a one family house and moved out to be on their own, it is hard to imagine living with so many generations. it works for millions of people.

Why not? Don't we treat EVERYONE who's boarding an airplane as if they were a suicide bomber? We look through their luggage....we look through their shoes...we hold them up in interminable lines...we 'glare' at them, we pat them down, and sometimes we even X-ray them....all because we "can't tell the GOOD people from the BAD ones"...(or at least, we SWEAR we can't)...

So yes, in regard to your post...you've pretty much 'hit the nail on the head'. When you can't tell the criminal from the 'good guy'...(because you're afraid to ask...or because you don't want to offend the criminal...or because the criminal may SUE YOU if you question him)...then, you're quite correct..in that case, we'll ALL be considered criminals. Welcome the the world of 'Political Correctness', where we can't penalize the bad guys, so we compensate by just penalizing everybody..

You give up you right to privacy when you choose to fly, flying isnt a right, it a mode of transportation.

I believe in the tenets of the Constitution, Innocent until proven guilty;
of the 5th and 14th amendments.

And the only way that innocence/guilt can be proven is through investigation. I consider being checked at the airport a method of investigation to protect me and my fellow travelers.
