Otherwise people would be living in northern Canada, Siberia, Antarctica, the interior of Australia, and countless other places that are HOSTILE TO HUMANS LIVING THERE.

We can't make nigeria do anything. But we can stop all foreign aid and trade with them, uganda, and the other scum countries who persecute the innocent.

Nigeria has a right to govern itself. This country has had sodomy laws in effect for most of its history, even during colonial times.
Basically you are LYING once again, DAVID MOORE.

Why not OWN your hate and use your real name, DAVID MOORE? Or are you AFRAID and a little COWARD?

it's RIDICULOUS for you to say there is lenty of land availabel for the billions of people on this planet. The fact is, that there ISN'T !
Then not only should abortion be legal it now must be MANDATORY and in your case, retroactive.

I approach this from a strictly environmental perspective. There is a LIMIT to how many humans a given area of land can sustain. More humans in the U.S. means MORE pollution, MORE water usage, MORE animals that are slaughtered for food (I'm a strict vegetarian for religious reasons), and further dregadation of our environment in a myriad of ways.
Our resources are NOT UNLIMITED, and as a sovereign nation, we have an ABSOLUTE RIGHT to say who can, and cannot, enter the U.S.
And I say NO MORE IMMIGRATION TO THE U.S. because it is depleting our resources at a faster rate, and degrading our environment at a faster rate.
Let them go to one of the "Worker's Paradises" called Cuba or Canada.
What has this to do with the horrors about to be faced by our brothers and sisters in Nigeria?

Perhaps I should spend my frequent flyer miles to get him tickets to Uganda, Congo and Nigeria.

He might learn something ... if he makes it out alive, that is.

We support a lot of bad people in the world. That's the law they came up with. It's none of our business. We need to respect the laws of other nations. The "we know better than you" attitude is why Americans are hated worldwide.

On the contrary; we should be cutting off funding and trade to any nation mired so deeply in hate that they enact genocidal laws. We can't make them change their laws but we don't have to support them.

Yet the Sahara and the Antarctic are NOT in the US. There is plenty of room here for all gay Ugandans and Nigerians which was my point.

Maybe they'd love us more and spend more time trying to scrape up food than killing gays if we and the other civilized countries cut off all aid.

An interesting supposition. We live in a world balanced on an ideological tripod. Though the blather of the ideologies may have changed, the tripod remains.

To check the practicality of your idea consider UN Security Council votes.

For example, in order to clean up it's international rep about using near-slave labor, why wouldn't some bigwigs in China simply move into the vacuum and acquire resources there? What about islamists moving into the poverty created by such an action? The undereducated, poor, and passion-driven are always their target audience, just as it was for christendom in the post-apostolic/patristic period?

That's simply NOT true. Merely because land is vacant, doe snot mena it is suitable for human habitation. I live in a small city surrounded by desert, as as neraly all cities, towns and localities in Arizona are. If the desert here WERE suitable for human habitation (there seem sto be a lack of water in the deserts here), then people would build homes and businesses there.

different plots of land have different values BECAUSE not all land is suitable for human habitation.

I am opposed to ANY immigration to the U.S. by ANY ONE at ANY time for ANY reason.

If you really believe that all land is suitable for human habitation, then you should have no problem with sending all immigrants, and yourself, to those BEAUTIFUL lands known as Cuba or The People's Demokratik Socialist Republik Of Kanada.

By your logic, if you are not 100% Native American (Indian) then you should get on the first plane out of the USA. Put your convictions on the line and follow through or else you'll be judged a hypocrite.

Let us know where you end up.

It certainly won't be The People's Demokratik Socialist Republik Of Kanada, I can tell you that !(I've been thinking of Belize the past couple of years).

There WAS a time when immiigration into to the U.S. was needed. That time is long since past.

I KNOW where you live genius. I live 90 minutes away. And what I said was that there is plenty if room for all the gay Nigerians and gay Ugandans.

You're a nut case. You picked a perfect spot for your under ground bunker.

I hardly think so. I live in the Landmark Ranch area of Coolidge, and the houses are very close together here and the land quite small. The lot my house is on when I lived in New York is 12,000 aquare feet and that's not very big. This is less than 5000 square feet. Hardly room for bunker with livable space.

Here's a tour of the house put up by the realty company:
