Immigration Reform Madness

The only "reform" needed in this area is reforming the will to enforce the immigration laws we already have. If they are here illegally, send them home!

I left that corrupt state over 3 yrs ago and I will never be back. The entire state is nothing but a life support system for the city of boston.

In hell, with a rope around his neck. Sure, so what if a few tens of thousands of women are raped, or people are fed into plastic shredders from time to time? We should have been a lot smarter, and ignored all that murderous evil, just like we did when there were rumors of Jews and gypsies being herded into concentration camps and gassed..

Even though America's energy production is on the rise, that is not the same as saying America itself is on the rise. As important as energy is, it is as nothing compared to the lack of moral character in the average American. The laziness, sense of entitlement, and lack of effort of so many are dragging the hard working and innovative down with them.

The Debate Debate

I did in fact look up those "debates" on YouTube, and was incredulous. Shockingly stupid, inane, and practically unintelligible were some of the thoughts that came to mind as I watched these fools shuck and jive their way through their 10 minutes. To her credit, the moderator questioned the first "speaker" about using rep music to make his presentation. It took a few minutes and several attempts for her to get anything like an intelligible response because he repeatedly interrupted and talked over her, but it eventually came out as something like.. "because that's how I feel" See it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFbQftMe6qY
Good article, Michael, but you have added a clause to the 1st Amendment that isn't there: "...unless that speech offends someone." The right to freedom of expression guaranteed under the 1st Amendment is especially designed to protect speech that offends. Otherwise, the government could deem any criticism of it or its or policies "offensive" and have it banned. Otherwise, pressure groups could effectively ban words and expressions they don't approve of. The last thing these extremists want is...gasp!... an open debate! The framers of the Constitution understood that the remedy for offensive free speech is- more free speech! Offensive or not, free speech is (or was?) free.

Most town hall readers? That comment smacks of prejudice to me- you certainly don't know most town hall readers, never mind what they think. In place of facts you are inserting your own bigoted opinions. Never, ever have I heard anyone say that homosexuals are going to burn in hell because of who they love. If they burn in hell, it is because they rejected God. It has nothing to do with who they love or don't love.

I thought we already had one of those- wasn't it the equal protection clause in the 8th amendment? All citizens are to be treated the same, is what it says essentially. If they ignore that law, as they evidently do, then why would they respect it if it was rewritten another way?

Haha! For just a second there, I thought you were referring to Barack H. Obama!

Which "whites" are you referring to? All of them? Me? Neither I nor anyone I know has any interest in destroying the black family. Your arrogant, bigoted attitude toward people you don't even know is telling.
