I always list my sources if I quote something straight from a site...however if I read information from several sites...write my thoughts about what I read...I do not feel as if I have to quote those sites...<quoted text>
I didn't say you made it up
I said you were guessing. And you left out a HUGE factor which is immigration is only down because they risked life and liberty to come here and either due to legal reasons, less benefits, and less job opportunities they were forced to return home. The immigration would be as high as ever if they could have gotten the work as they don't want to be in Mexico, they want to be here
When you say immigration is way down and that they are finding new opportunities in Mexico without saying they first came here and were forced to return or some only returned in pursuit of U.S. jobs, you are giving a very, very different impression than what is the case.
But since you didn't link any article, I assume you knew that. Anybody who read the articles would know it as it is made quite clear.
But I know, you were just neutrally posting some unsourced information you found and simply forgot to include some critical pieces of the puzzle. I am glad I was able to fill in the blanks.
Steve...IMO...the real problem was that I responded to LeLe(along with the fact that I brought up a subject that you have been in debate over)...I have no reason not to. There was someone that posted here once...someone I considered a good friend...someone that I still have a great respect for. There had been a problem between that person and LeLe....she was offended that I would be friends with LeLe.
LeLe has to my knowledge never said anything to me that would give me reason not to communicate with her. I won't alter the way that I address her simply because it offends someone else. I wouldn't do it for a friend...nor anyone else.
I don't always agree with LeLe...we approach things differently. I think that she should just let this dispute between you, others and herself go. At times I think she keeps it stirred up...at times I think you guys make some fairly horrible things up about her...things that I am sure you don't know is true or not.
Like I said...I have stayed out of most of the "great" debates around here but if I have something to say...I will. If that pisses someone off...then oh well...I am not here to kiss anyone's ass...not yours...not IANS...not LeLe's...or anyone elses.
Now I am done with this...it was a silly conversation...
