Wow! You know nothing about me dude. Heartless? Too, too funny. Have you ever been on a poker run to support clothing for kids? What about a toy run? Have you ever helped Evelyn Mount on her turkey drives for the homeless? Do you stop and check if disabled motorists need help on lonely desert highways? I do all these things and more. Heartless? You're a hoot.

My post had nothing to do with heart. It was directed at the mindless fear being propogated by people like you. The mindlessness of it all. Work on that first, then you can check to see how much heart you have.

We would never take their children and put them in boarding schools where they were forbidden to speak their own language or follow their own customs ... would we?

And we would never buy and sell other human beings as though they were cattle....would we? We would never rape the women, beat the men to death, and take their children from their arms to be sold to other slave owners ...would we? We would never force generations to work their lives away without payment or the right to breathe a breath of free air .....would we? And when the later generations were freed....against our will.... we would never form terrorist organizations to ride around in sheets, burning their homes, beating them, lynching them, refusing them the right to an education, a decent job, or even the right to vote.....would we?

No, Bishop Tutu has nothing to worry about on this side of the ocean. We Americans would NEVER treat people unfairly. We will just label other human beings as "illegals" and then call them "deportees" and if it means taking them from their children and lives they have worked their hands to the bone building .....why...it is their fault for wanting to work at jobs that most of us wouldn't ever take so they can give their children a chance at a better life.. strangely, the same reason that most of our forebearers came to this country to achieve.
Talk about drama and hysteria!!!! What happened in Nazi Germany was nothing close to simply returning people to their own country.

Mexico is NOT a Nazi concentration camp and those of you who try to pretend it is are really getting absurd. Mexico is in fact among the richest nations in the world. It's a beautiful country. An obese country, second only to the USA in obesity rates. No one is starving to death there.

In fact Mexico is a vacation destination for many Americans because it's so beautiful a country -- so don't try to claim it's worse than hell on earth to live there.

Take your drama and excuses someplace else.

Yes, yes yes... you're a bleeding heart. I guess you don't know a lot about me either, huh. I applaud your altruism... but what mindless fear am i propogating? Is this another fake argument? Did I ever say Arizona is becoming Nazi Germany? No... so what, praytell... am I propogating? Tolerance? Love for fellowman, despite his legal status. Yes you help out godod people, but have you ever volunteered in a prison? Have you ever worked with gangs in the inner city? Have you worked for agencies that help ex-cons find work? Isn't that what Jesus would do? (I'm not religious, so if ur going to nitpick anything off my post, dont do that one)

I don't think I am propogating any fear at all. But enlighten me, what fear am i propogating?

Hmm... I thought this was the illegal immigration forum...did I in anyway offend you? I'm so sorry!

nvx, maybe liam should go and cry to mommy.

But this is exactly what happenes when you try to discuss rational things with irrational people... you basically get told to shut up, and take ur drama elsewhere.... which btw I might cuz the forum is basically one senselss diatribe after another.

People like you /= you. That's what I wrote. Clear enough?

I'm an atheist. You really know absolutely nothing about me, so stop trying to paint me as "opposite" of you. If you check my posting history, you might learn that I criticize all irrational fear mongering, not just that coming from pro-illegals. Clear? Good.

There's a communist in the White House!
There's a Nazi in Arizona!

See the comparison? Again, I didn't write that you said these things, but my "Mommy" comment wasn't written to you in the first place.

Now, what was that about me being heartless? Tell me again. It was so funny.
