Have Illegals become your Scapegoat? I see so many posts from many of the same people over and over that I have to ask this question.

Any time I have found myself really obsessed over an issue or over hating or disliking something I have to eventually ask myself what is going on in my own life to make me so mean as in "small".

It is self evaluation time. Time to get real. Get alone and see what you hate within yourself.

I am from Ohio and I hear that some of my Italian relatives up there are jumping on the anti-immigrant badwagon and I have to remind them if somehow they are listening, that we came here illegally, yes we did and dang it-it's ok. Many of us did. I am ok with it. Half of me came here legally and the other half illegal, going back to my Granparents.

I'm from Texas and it's a great place here no matter what. Some illegals make better friends thatn the legals cause they are not obssessed with hatin'.

So you're from Ohio, and you're also from Texas? Nice try.

Your whole post is FAIL.

The objection to illegal immigration is because it is against the law and the toll it is taking on our country. What part of that don't you get? It has nothing to do with hate!

No, most Americans today were born here. We aren't immigrants and our families have been here for a couple of generations. The past does not justify the present anyway.

You know, I just looked within myself and found that I really, really hate being a good citizen and paying my taxes, knowing that I am helping to fund welfare, food stamps, hospitalizations, and births for countless Illegal Aliens.

So glad you thought of that little exercise!

How is that a fail? If anything it's inconsistent, but location is somewhat irrelevant to the post.

BTW, typically a person spells 'hate' with an 8 is not a person who should decide whether a post is 'fail' or not (esp. if the tagline is because I'm beautiful).

Historically it's been the case where the most different and poor have been targeted and blamed for society's ills. I see no reason why this is not the case today. It shouldn't be, but unfortunately it is (as witnessed by most posters on here).

So anyway.... I guess if people are on the receiving end of the benefits they can use the word hate as an excuse to steal. I hate bank robbers and petty thieves no matter now they go about stealing my money.

Fallacy in logic. You aren't comparing two of the same kinds of things.

I don't see the problem with Ohio & Texas. I was born in Ohio, all my family lives in Ohio. My parents moved me to Texas and raised me here.

back to the subject.

Maybe this is the answer to all thsoe pesky Mexicans. The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics
