"Plenty of free speech" indicates that there are more than two states of free speech. This is incorrect.
I agree. I got an infraction on CD for telling someone to shut up after they called me stupid because of an opinion I had. For sure there is not free speech on these forums.

America gives physican postiions to Asians, Muslims, etc. I worked with them, very nice people they were.

Also, the illegals (& I knew some of them, all good people wanting to live a good life as we do) are taking the lower paying jobs away from Americans. The people collecting unemploymen, welfare, etc. should be made to take those jobs (if able to physically) and their earnings deducted from their government subsidy.

And... we need to put God back in our government, in our schools, in our daily lives!
Why doe we need God in the government?

Sergey Brin for starters. One of my cousins is the head of the IT department at his company, and about a quarter of his staff is from Russia. Russia, Iran, and India(China too but not many Muslims from there) provide a disproportional amount of entrepreneurs to this country and immigrants from these countries are extremely well represented in tech.

Most general physicians own their practice. Anyone can set up shop once they get experience. Being American is not a limitation.

Injecting God into government, education, and on the general public is a HUGE step backwards. Keep God limited to religious venues.

This is like screening every flyer at our airports. A blanket policy to solve a specific problem. Should all the south Europeans be banned after Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated? Or when McKinley was shot, should the doors have been slammed shut on everyone from the assassin's country? Does America have to respond in the most stupid way to everything?

Well said- well, PREACHED is more like it

For you, and anyone who may have missed it, here is some interesting reading for putting things into perspective. (Islamophobes - Shield your eyes!)

Surveys Show Muslims in Every Country Less Likely to Justify Killing Civilians than Americans and Israelis

Muslims Are More Peaceful than Their Neighbors

Non-Muslims Carried Out More than 90% of All Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Soil

Jewish Extremists Commit More Terror than Islamic Extremists

Sure we sure keep the muslims from getting into this country as well as Jews and Christians as well since each religion has hand involved in some terroristic act in some fashion or another.

Would you be okay with blocking Jewish people from getting into the country also?
