Determinate saidRiddles, I know you are frustrated.
We cannot rest until YOU and SOUTHBEACH are able to find meaningful employment.
Until then I know you'll keep yourselves busy here, spending your idle hours typing for your own amusement.
Add me to your list of apostates but, having been meaningfully employed for over 45 years, I'm now retired and yes, amusing myself - and some others - by typing here.
That said, your post again begs me to retype my previously unanswered incendiary question: exactly which programs instituted by Obama are responsible for the growth you cite?
It was a whole economic recovery package. Obama first voted for it as a senator, when Bush bailed out the banks.
Since then, Obama has strengthened the middle class with healthcare reform and other initiatives. Since this is a projection for 2015, I'll add that his recent inclusion of illegal immigrants who have been here for more than five years into the legitimate economy will also strengthen the country greatly.
Well, at least that's a start, but please state exactly which specific Obama programs are responsible for this growth. And no, his ignoring our existing immigration laws doesn't count, as that most recent venture into lawlessness hasn't been - officially, at least - around long enough to have any appreciable impact, so forget the "projection" deflection, too. And no, I don't agree that "inclusion" of more lawbreakers into our "legitimate economy will also strengthen the country," greatly or otherwise. All it does is weaken respect for our system of ordered liberty and the rule of law which has been responsible for our success from 1789 to now.
Genocide and slavery also played a role in our rise as a nation. Owning slaves was protected by the federal government, so don't try to say the laws are always right. When laws are that wrong it's the heroes who break them. The abolitionists were the heroes. The government was the enemy.
These anti immigration laws were created by hypocrites.
Just because the law chooses winners and losers doesn't make it right. In fact, it's imperative to make sure that laws can accommodate everyone, including those who came here outside of the prescribed law.
Btw, what's the alternative? You can't deport millions of people. They have lives here that are just as valid as yours. We all share the same planet regardless of national borders, and we have to coexist. The alternative is to be a tyrant and needlessly persecute people who have every right as a human that you do.
If you love this country then it should be no surprise that people will do whatever it takes to live here. And while your prejudices are hurtful and cruel, it's not going to stop them. Why should anyone care what you think when you're so rotten? I'm sure if you weren't gay yourself you'd hate gay people too. The only time I've ever seen your heart bleed is for a gay kid. Too bad your heart isn't big enough to include everyone.
FLASH! Slavery ended in the USA in 1863! Details ad nauseum
, every waking hour of your life. And please don't speak for me; I never said "the laws are always right." That just another of your illogical straw man arguments. Like your succeeding claim, that it's "imperative to make sure that laws can accommodate everyone, including those who came here outside of the prescribed law." FLASH! Laws exist to proscribe wrongdoing, NOT to foster it.
I most definitely believe we can and should deport ALL illegals in this country. Their presence here is so open and obvious - and often hostile - that's it's easy to spot them, and would be just as easy and economical to round them up and deport them, ALL of them, including their allegedly "innocent" kids; after all, why break up these families any more than they already have thru their serial illegal immigration? And no, the lives of those who break the law are not just as "valid" as those of people who abide by it. Yes, we all share a planet - got any more cliches and tired aphorisms in your ammo belt? - but we do so by living in our respective countries, not by roaming over and selfishly exploiting it and its citizens at will. There's neither "tyranny" nor "persecution" in applying and living by the rule of law; in fact, it usually results in the absence of the same.
The remainder of you post is just another one of your numerous nonsensical screeds. And yes, I'm glad to be governed by a thinking head instead of a bleeding heart.
