  1. The wealth gap is the natural intended product of capitalism. It is actually the essential component. It creates the drive to create products or services at low prices so more people can afford to purchase them. Productivity is maximized. Wages are determined the number of qualified workers in the labor pool and their labor output on the job. Productive people get paid more because they do more than the average person. Fairness isn't even a consideration, nor should it be. Its an unplanned wild free for all controlled by what' called the invisible hand No planning is even possi
  2. iNow, why is it that you can't understand that our goals can be the same, though our solutions are different? I agree with almost all of what you have with the exception of parts of 9, 10 but ifacceptable risks aren't allowed you are just keeps people in poverty, and 11 is simpl delusional. Perhaps you should consider economic prosperity as a solution?
  3. You must skip a lot of news stories in your local news papers and major broadcast media Even my local paper, The Spokesman Review, covers them. The FBI criminally leaking documents, FBI agents loosing 5 months of texts between FBI agents who were found to be discussing a secret society that would be working against the president Then we have McCabe abusing FISA for improper serveillance of US citizens. I could go on and on but why? You stopped reading a long time ago. But at least your media heros like Michael Wolff painting your side in honor by claiming that Nikki Hayley and Dona
  4. If you would just drop your envy of the "rich" your life would be a lot happier. Try practicing saying "well good for them" any time you hear that good fortune befalls anyone. Do this regardless of their economic situation, their political persuasion, race, creed, orientation, etc. You will find it very freeing to be free of envy. Of course the tax bill has things in it that you like. Why would you think otherwise. Donald Trump along with congress is trying to make the country a better place. I'm sure it pains you to acknowledge that for Trump, but it's nice to see a start.
  5. Why does it never occur to any of you that the branch of government under attack is the executive branch? Yeah, I get that you don't like Trump but he is the President of the United States. He has been under investigation for over a year and nothing on Trump has been uncovered. Nothing of importance has even been leaked. The only Russia collusion that has been found has been between the Democratic party, the Hillary campaign, or the Clinton charity. Having the press as your political ally has burred those stories, but maybe this FISA report will change that. If it is just BS it will only
  6. Don't think I don't have empathy for these DACA children. The law however must be followed.
  7. I have been blaming the DACA parents from the start. What they did to there children was child abuse. Those parents should be prosecuted for it. I''m generally happy with it as long as it includes other proposed immigrqation changes. Nuclear chain migration only, no lottery, all immigrants vetted, v-verify for employment. Things like that.
  8. Well, there is a new executive, and he has a pen and phone too, and he is writing new executive actions now. So with the stroke of a pen he can remove any reason to adjudicate pending future mitigation or action on illegal immigration. Also Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals doesn't mean that they are not her illegally, It just means we are deciding not to prosecute them at the moment. The criminal cases against them are prima facie. There is no doubt of their guilt.
  9. Well currently the law is on my side. If one president can defer law, another can decide to enforce it. That's the problem with executive action. Funny you didn't have any problems with Obama's executive actions. I have stated over and over again that the law can be changed. Even the constitution can be changed. Those of your political persuasion just don't wan't to play by the rules or put in the work. Just because you didn't know it was legal to refuse, doesn't mean it wasn't. Also this is a topic about immigration. Please stay on topic.
  10. Your location says you are from Texas. I assume you are a US citizen. If you don't like the second amendment work to have it changed. Yeah, I'll bitch about it if you succeed but I'll follow the law. I don't pick and choose. Working out as intended as far as I'm concerned. Funny you list a bunch of infractions and minor misdemeanors to call me a hypocrite. Illegal immigration is felony. Maybe you don't know the difference. http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-law-basics/what-distinguishes-a-misdemeanor-from-a-felony.html With regard to your questions, you are
  11. Perhaps you haven't noticed but the US has immigration laws. It appears that you don't like these laws and don't believe that these laws should be enforced. It seems that you believe that any person who steps foot in the US should automatically be a citizen with all rights afforded a US citizen included voting. I'm sure you feel that if a person bought a candy bar at convenience store he paid taxes so all that person need is to keep the receipt so now that person is a citizen Perhaps you should read the 14th amendment. Why bother however? You will just ignore the parts you don't like.
  12. The price we are paying is that we are spending resources on foreigners that could be spent on improving the lives of impoverished US citizens, improving education for our children, etc. Also illegal immigrants put lowering price pressure on wages further grinding people into poverty. What obligation am I talking about? How about basic human altruism. These children are citizens of other countries that are in a bind because of the criminal actions of their parents. If roles were reversed and those children were US citizens in a bind, I would want my government to help. Not just fin
  13. You two have an interesting sense of justice. Crimes where committed. Those crimes include child abuse by the parents of DACA children when they included them in their crimes. Somehow you don't have a problem with that. Next, are these children not citizens of other countries? Are the people from those countries less empathetic to the plight of their children citizens than other human beings would be? Those countries have no obligation at all? Why not a discussion on the shared human responsibility of all involved?
  14. You just have to make this about race, but their is no need to. I often read on this forum that the US doesn't need to be the world's police force, but somehow we are supposed to be the world's welfare office. Why? Why should US citizens pay the price of the crimes committed by the parents of DACA children? Why doesn't Mexico accept the responsibility for it's child citizens? Well when you believe you can't run out of other people's money everything can be done in parallel. So when does utopia begin?
  15. Agreed. Is it really that hard to do a gut check on opinions and attitudes? Sometimes you find out you are not such a fine person after all. That causes personal growth. Agreed here as well, but after that gut check one might conclude that there is nothing immoral with their position. We are talking about illegal immigration here. We live in a nation of laws. That is how our society functions. Picking and choosing which laws to enforce and which ones not to is a dangerous path. Why should we pick and choose? Last time I checked we have a representative government that can
