Her comment went completely over your head.

Speeding is generally not a crime. It is a civil violation. That puts it into the exact same legal classification as unlawful presence.

"evade a question"?!? But ya didn't axe a question, you made a declaration, and I (albeit tongue in cheek) suggested an official flag, yes?

(Psst, see how that's done? Ya highlight the fact that you're axeing a question by putting a ? after your Q).

By redefining the words "Illegal Immigrant", those that advocate appropriate response can be labeled a xenophobic bigots. That's marvelous!

And if you don't want to talks about consequences or reason, might as well try name calling. Ad hominem is where they go overboard.

Is identity theft a civil violation? Is welfare fraud a civil violation? Is dealing drugs a civil violation? Is driving drunk and without a license killing four people a civil violation? Is murdering a mother so you can have sex with her thirteen-year-old daughter a civil violation? I don't think so. However, you, Turner, are safe. Being a loudmouth, sanctimonious, blowhard, ignorant asshole is still only a civil violation. You do know that the House will never ever approve any form of amnesty for the wet back sub-human scum you seen to love so much, even more than your own country and your own fellow citizens. GFY.
That had nothing to do with my post. Try to focus and stay on topic.

Do you know what it's like to argue with a political opponent who will redefine words when it helps win? Have you ever had a discussion with a person who believes truth is subjective and as long as goodness wins, words have no fixed meaning?

Deja vu!
