I know what children want, Dave.
I know enough to know that they don't want to be deported and have to start the trek all over again.
How far have you walked, Dave? All alone with nobody to help you to find your way. Did you find a haven just for awhile?
Did they deport you?
Don't try bleeding heart me, sweetheart.

I walked a long damned ways all alone with no one to help. Totally destitute and powerless for 3 years. And not a protected species of the liberal progressive crowd. Subsistence level since then. Prior to that I personally observed how those mass migrations and aid politically inspired work. And the damage they do.

Get an education. Go out and get an entry level job in a field dominated by Mexicans. IF you get one see how long you last if your sweet exotic self don't reward the padron that hired you with the favors he expects of you.

Once those groups gain power locals don't stand a chance. That means black and blue collar whites in this country. They no speak the language. Comprende?

I have witnessed this, not read about it. Starting with the Cubans. And those were the educated middle class.

By all means then, let's stone the children to death.

Dave told me to do it, officer.

He said these poor children are going to take over our country. It's the Cuban's fault !!!

Get a grip, Dave. We can always call the National Guard, yes?

How is our wealth irrelevant?
Because a discussion of anecdotal finances of an individual are irrelevant to discussion of a national poverty level.

It's similar to how discussion of the temperature in Cleveland at 6:00 am on Tuesday is irrelevant to whether global temperatures are rising.

But I don't expect you to see the distinction, because you are a moron.

I'll try to remember that in future statements.

No, I think the most powerful nation on earth has laws, or it doesn't.
Those laws allow the nation to set the rules for who walks into the country, and who doesn't. We have such laws.
Our system of laws allows for laws to be changed by "the people".
Nowhere does it allow they be changed by Barack Hussein Obama and Valerie Jarrett.
we have laws against torturing prisoners but that diddn't stop the Bush administration

we have laws against kidnapping people, imprisoning them without a trial and torturing them but that didn't stop the Bush administration

we have laws against committing war crimes, again that didn't stop the Bush administration.

we have laws against lying to Congress, doctoring up intel all to justify an illegal invasion of a foreign country, and yet that didn't stop the Bush administration

we signed the Geneva convention and it was ratified by the Senate, yet that didn't stop Cheney from using it to wipe his butt with

I will bet you are programmed to believe Reagan and the Iran-Contra affair was evil.

Look up the Torch of Friendship incident in Miami of years ago.

I knew some of those liberals protesting that barely escaped alive. I was a trained liberal back then. I'm an educated one now. Oh, I still think it was evil. I hate/hated the Reagan crowd.

Is there an event horizon around the invading influx of illegal immigrants?
Because if you can count them, they can't possibly be infinite.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =1VtriYGTr0wXX
An existing physical distance is representable, meaning it is potentially countable.

Something infinite is not even potentially countable.

Infinite distance is not complete-able, by definition.

But you say the distance is presently completed - that the universe has infinite distance of expansion at the present instant.

But being a completed distance, as it is at any instant, it cannot be infinite, because an infinite is uncomplete-able.

And if it is expanding, and you are correct, it is one completed infinite in one instant, then a different completed infinite in the next instant, then a different completed infinite in the next instant,...and on and on.

You are proposing a series of larger and larger completed infinite distances.

But a distance cannot be larger than infinite distance.

So you are proposing a sequence of physical distances that are each larger than the previous, but all the same size.

You are proposing physical distances where "equal to" and "less than" and "larger than" are all the same thing.

Do you see a problem?

How can a physical distance be equal to, larger than, and smaller than an infinite distance?

Do you see a problem?

You are proposing a model of physical reality where being physically "equal to", "larger than", and "smaller than" are not contradictory values.

Do you see a problem?

You can't blame those things on Bush, even it he did support some of that, it isn't him, it's the military, and the intelligence people.
The police and assorted assholes that think they can do this stuff.
In short, the Empire America is guilty of all that. Bush is out the picture, and the NSA under control of the Democrats when Snowden finked them out as to what this country is doing.
It's like putting all the blame on Hitler, when it was a good portion of Germany that was wrong, and we don't have a dictator here, though some of them try to achieve this status.
The problem us the US is full if Bush's and other type assholes.

You can't stop migration. You just can't.
You need to learn to deal with it or be pushed out. That's what it's about, right?
You're afraid.
Fear is your enemy. It's your nemesis. Face it and be about your way.
Nobody is attempting to stop migration.

A sovereign nation gets to decide levels of migration and rules for how it is followed.

Why do you want the U.S. to give away its sovereignty?

Why do you want the U.S. to give away our right to govern ourselves?

As U.S. law defines refugees, none of the illegal aliens flooding in from Central America are refugees.
That is assuming U.S. law means a damn thing to the present administration.
Obama is considering becoming "Coyote-'n-Chief". He wants to have taxpayers fund plane loads of immigrants hauled from Central America directly, cutting out the middle-man.
No wonder. He taught "Constitutional Law".
Ihope you're not a lawyer ther4e Bucky boy. The law that you are talking about specifically states that children fleeing Central america are to be given a hearing to determine their status. Fleeing a country whose murdere rate is second only to Syria should certainly qualify one as a refugee. Fleeing a country where you are forced to join a drug cartel/gang or be killed would also qualify one as a refugee. Fleeing child sex rings, forced prostitution....

funny we have laws that if a Cuban sets foot on U.S. land they are granted admission to this country, and they aren't facing anything like these children from central America are facing

Let me guess, you're a christian.

The illegal aliens presently coming from Central America did not walk.

They rode on trains and buses.

Did you migrate here legally or illegally?

If the latter, you should be deported now.

and yet President Obama is responsible for Amb. Stevens death, the IRS targeting conservative groups....yada yada yada.

Bush is to blame for the use of torture, he had Gonzales write the memo justifying it. He ordered the invasion of Iraq, it was his administration that okayed the use of torture, kidnapping and imprisonmnet without trial, his administration came up with enemy combatant to circumvent the geneva convention
