anything to get people's sympathy! I'd be embarrassed to bring about attention to myself in this way. These people are so silly, it's abhorring.

Really! You're so abhorring! Ms. Pretty, the mirror you're looking into is broken. The cracks on the mirror make you face appear "put together," when in reality it's so un-put together!
But, be joyful, your ass looks better than your face :-)
Don't worry, I am joyful as I am beautiful all over.....my soul and spirit too. Thanks for your concern!

I generally don't display any flags. If I did here's what I would follow:
When flags of multiple countries are flown in the same place, they must all be displayed as equals. They should each be flown on individual flagpoles each of the same size. All of the flags must be the same size and no flag can be bigger or smaller than another flag. National flags of multiple countries should be arranged in alphabetical order.When two flags are displayed (in a line); the national flag should appear on the left side when viewed by an observer.
I also found this other bit of info:
Section 7g reads, "When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace."
Based on the above info, I would NOT display two national flags on the same staff. If I had only one staff I would fly the USA flag here in the US, and of course the Mexican flag in Mexico.
Good to know that you would respect the American flag, and took the time to understand the proper protocol for displaying it and the flag of another country. Frankly, I am relieved.

FREEDOM OF FREE SPEECH does not allow you to lie, defraud, or otherwise make false statements!
FREEDOM OF FREE SPEECH allows you to speak your opinion without fear of retribution from others. FREEDOM OF FREE SPEECH assumes you're of a good moral character and don't give in to lies, slander, or fraud!
FREEDOM OF FREE SPEECH does not protect lieing, slandering, nor defrauding! Now, speak you mind and be truthful!
As for my statement above, OK, I appoligize, I had not reason to offend you, FREEDOM OF FREE SPEACH does not necessarily permit offending people.
well, you just keep all that in mind......and let the rest of us tear each other apart if we want AND DON'T INTERFERE or bother with my posts.

On the same token, nothing stops you from leaving this country and going somewhere else.
You're obviously discontented here in the USA, so why don't you just leave?
When people from other countries are dissatisfied with conditions in their country they leave, why don't you do the same?
spoken like a true anchor baby.Lmao

An anchor baby is an American citizen which they would like to deport. Can't be done.

In a sense you're right, the anchor baby is an American citizen which they would like to deport, but they can't.
"Anchor baby" is a pejorative term for a child born in the United States to immigrant parents, who, as an American citizen, supposedly can later facilitate immigration for relatives. The term is generally used as a derogatory reference to the supposed role of the child, who automatically qualifies as an American citizen and can later act as a sponsor for other family members."

I gave the abbreviated version.

No problem. The definition seems to be extended to anyone who can help others obtain legal status.
Well ok I hadn't heard that. I always thought it referred to American born citizens to illegal immigrants.

I thank my parents for not allowing me to be contaminated by liberalism.

That would mean I would be in favor of allowing criminals to profit from their lawlesss entry into America.

Oh, when I said anyone I meant to say "child of any immigrant."
But anyway, that's the idea. It's someone, usually a citizen baby, who serves as an anchor.
Anti-immigrants hate anchor babies!! They call me an anchor baby because I defend the immigrants. They hate that!!!!
YOu left out the world ILLEGAL in your rant...

Does that mean you dont think its illegal to be in the US without permission?
