Truthfully folks, I’m starting to believe that TheDarkEricDraven is a plant from code pink and NAMBLA.

I think he’s just an idiot who is of the delusion that he has something to add to the discussion.

I don’t see why it’s a problem. It’s not like we’d get more people then we could handle.

“It’s not like we’re getting more people than we can handle.” See: that’s the problem. We have to “handle” them. They are not a benefit; they are a detriment. Your comment points that out quite clearly (although you probably didn’t realize you were saying it).

I guess we should start terminating pregnancies and enforcing birth control, lest we have to handle the babies that would drain American resources, or whatever point your trying to make.

“She Blinded Me With Science” is a nice song.

“I guess we should start terminating pregnancies….”

That’s been going on to the tune of 35 million abortions since Roe v Wade.

“…and enforcing birth control, lest we have to handle the babies that would drain American resources…”

That is exactly what Margaret Sanger’s position was. There is no similarity between that and a country managing its borders and immigration policy.

Aren’t we in an argument about birth control pills being supplied to women? Isn’t that on the National News at this point?

You’re saying people shouldn’t come and become American citizens because it would drain resources. It’s exactly the same.

TD,………..MO. Maybe read a little for entertainment purposes, but no reason to try to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

Sorry, I can’t stand it. You are a complete idiot. I don’t know where you live, but I live in South Texas and I am here to tell you half or city is illegal. They vote, get governement aid, run businesses, etc and not a American passport among them. I was in the ER yesterday and a border patrol guy came in . Have the wiating room emptied! And he was going up to one of the upper floors in the hospital! You REALLLLLY need to kee your trap shut why you have no idea what you are talking about!

C’mon, Eric, give me a real example of how legal immigrants are treated “stupidly hard”. Show us specifically how legal immigrants are mistreated by government. I mean systemically. Not the one-off and not some half-ass sophistry from Cracked.

Actually sidekick, this government is making it much harder for legal immigrants to gain citizenship than illegals!

I meant that in the context of Obama planning a mass amnesty, probably right in time for them to register to vote in November.

I dunno, I work with a lot of Europeans who are here on work visas and they have no problems. I’ve heard the same stories about the lines and the costs of doing it “right” but to suggest that the immigrants are mistreated is a stretch in my opinion. On the other hand, the illegals are handed all sorts of goodies at the taxpayer expense.

Still that is not the real issue in the context of Eric’s insane position that anyone who steps foot here should be granted citizenship.

So if some one breaks into your home, they should have the right to stay there? Want to post your address? I know plenty of folks who would love to live in your home, rent free, you supply all the food and drink, pay for their health costs, and give them pocket money.

I will also bet your next argument is “it’s not the same thing.”

Maybe Canada? Its $#*(#) cold and they need people.

No you didn’t and no they shouldn’t. Sovereignty is actually a vital component of nationhood. If that is the best you’ve got, then we need to end it there.

Anyone recall the TSA’s notion (a few months back) for “searching” scared little kids? “We could make a game out of it to ease their fears.” It was at that point that the TSA officially became child molesters. Hey! Why not offer ’em candy, too?

Amazing how the govt. has no problem finding employees who never say, “Wow, I feel like a complete assh*le doing this!”

Maybe the TSA agents that are tasked with searching the little kids could hang out in old vans outside the terminal, with “Free Puppy” signs on it?

I think it’s more like real girls don’t like him, so he sits home and fantasizes about little cartoon girls.
