Religious authorities utilized the word - heretic' in the 16th century to silence or - slap down' anyone that brought facts, figures and new concepts to the public.A If a new scientific concept contradicted the Catholic Church, they placed the scoundrel under house arrest - such as Galileo for proving the Earth revolved around the sun.

When people bring up Obama maybe a Muslim (because he is black), who cares but religious minded people. I throw all religions into the same basket. People who pretty much can't run their lives without a crutch to help them do the right thing.

<quoted text>Maybe your assumption is ignorant. I've was a Democrat for 38 years, and am now an independent. I am for a woman right to choose and don't care who marries who. But I know damage when I see it and an invasion when it happens. Diversity comes from the word to divide and that is what this invasion is doing to this country. I know graffiti when I see it and gangs prowling my streets, or 30 people living in a garage against our zoning codes. You see I wasn't brainwashed by our existing school system. No it is not me that is ignorant or right wing. You don't even know you've been brainwashed be cause you've been taught it's so cool to be liberal. Next time don't forget to use the words "hate" or "intolerant" those are your buzz words. But I must give you credit, you did manage to get in the word "racist". Next time just call me a coconut, my last name is Garcia.
you are brainwashed puss. and queer. You have only 3 possible choices in your country. Practically only one. Romney or Obama or Santorum, these wonderful candidates are real solution for your country and I want them see in White House. You have NO rights to vote for another candidates. I BAN.

Ron Paul is the only one who would really make changes!

The others just say what people want to hear to try and get votes.

My question exactly, I am a United Church of Christ pastor and bilingual. I founded Puente Ministry in Pescadero CA and we as a community welcome the Mexican national workers.Our book of that story for the past 10 yrs. is No Longer Strangers: The Practice of Radical Hospitality. Ck our web www.no-longer-strangers.org and read our reality on the wonderful brothers and families who maintain good lives, jobs and help their families at home in Mexico. There is no other econ. feasible choice. Read the last book on our BOOK page of the web and get the true context. Be wise, and stand up for true justice, FOR ALL...who among us is to an immigrant in our heritage? Only the First Nation/Native Americans and you see what our nation did to these people.
My ancestors were immigrants who paid their own way at all times. Illegal aliens don't. If you want to help them, go to their country and stop them from coming here and leeching off of others. Then pay their medical bills and buy them food for life. That's YOUR choice. You have no right to force anyone else to support your favorite charity cases. You have no right to break US soveriegn laws by aiding and abetting people who have been legislated against by the US Congress. I don't care if you have a glowng halo around your hubris-filled widdle head - you have no morality to speak of, nor any sense of law and order.

You clearly need to learn your history from a different source! They raped Germany financially and again were expelled- for the 71st time? I'm half Jewish and am vehemently anti zionist. They are rewriting history and filling your head with propaganda! Wake up, or it will happen here.

How dare you compare the illegals in the U.S. to the Jews of Germany. You are a disgusting fabricator and apparently know nothing about the heinous lives Jews lived during the time of WWII.
The Jews were productive CITIZENS of Germany and surrounding countries). They contributed socially and financially to Germany and didn't make excuses or hedge when it came to giving back to their country. They didn't enter Germany illegally and sponge off the country. They didn't expect Germany to feed and clothe them for free. They didn't turn parts of Germany into cesspools and they didn't arrogantly force their culture on anyone. They certainly didn't spit in the faces of the citizens of Germany.
None of this can be said about illegals. That's why they are reviled in the U.S.

This Obama administration has made sure the discussion of illegal aliens has been taken off the radar. No one is discussing it. Why? So that he and the openborders crowd can sneak in another amnesty. You bet, and everyone is so enthralled in the healthcare debate that amnesty for illegal aliens will hardly be noticed. But you'll sure notice the price tag for amnesty, but it will be too late. It's your choice, you can speak up now, or pay for it later.

We have spoken, the American people don't want any amnesty for illegals but you have your President as the dictator of this country.
