  1. Well, while there is some common sense in this thread--I am glad to see that, even on this Far Left-leaning site, at least half the commenters understand that illegal aliens are law-breakers and NOT immigrants.....and that they are destroying the quality of life of this country and its economic competitiveness.

    On the other side, I want you all to observe how the Far Left views gay people (see the comments of Christopher M, Josh, THurts, and a few others). The Far Left's view of things is that, as gay people, you have absolutely no busines forming opinions of your own. They believe that, as far as political issues are concerned, sexual orientation is destiny.....and your only course of action as a gay man is to adopt the entire Far Left agenda, no matter how repugnant you find much of it.

    What informs this nonsensical idea is, of course, the twisted Far Left notion--embodies in Little Kiwi's remarks--that White Heterosexual Males are the source of all evil in the world and everyone else should despise them and unite against them.

    Of course, what these Far Left automatons don't grasp is that White Homosexual Males have far more in common with White Heterosexual Males than they do with illegal aliens from the Third World, panties-mascara-and-high-heel-wearing psychologically disturbed, gender-confused men, man-hating feminists, welfare queens, inner-city gangbangers or any other group they glorify, make excuses for, and keep on their Far Left plantation.

    I just hope they keep it up and hope that most gay men are smart enough to see what they are really about and that aligning ourselves with them is and has always been a deal with the devil.

  2. "You want to send undocumented workers back to their lands then return their lands to them: California, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada...just give 'em back"

    LOL. And then they would just make the same mess of them that they have made of every other place they live.....and proceed to move to wherever they can find white people who are willing to give them jobs.

  3. except, unlike you "RICK" - i'm not a coward who can only spew his opinions from a cowardly place of anonymity.

    are you man enough to show yourself? no? didn't think so.

    and my father is a white heterosexual male and he's pretty darn amazing, and marches with me in the pride parades every year, so that strawman you want to use can be put back in bed, so you can dry-dump it to smithereens.

    you're so funny and sad. day in and day out, spewing venom from a place of anonymity. wimp. :D

  4. I live in Florida, where "white people" (as well as black people and every other race) mow lawns, trim trees, plant bushes, paint, clean, clear, haul, and of course also do stuff like make pizzas and work as construction laborers. The claim that "Americans won't do these ,jobs" is not only a deceitful deflection, it shows a profound ignorance of economics.

    You say that Americans (usually you say "white people" as if the two were synonymous) won't pick tomatoes? Of course we will. Any job , any job, will be filled if the pay rises to create interest.

    You lie, or are sincerely ignorant in believing that migrant workers (illegal aliens usually) don't make minwage. Actually then tend to make more than minwage. But apparently the job doesn't pay enough to get the traditional farmworkers back in the fields. But as long as we can get Mexicans for minwage, then the wages won't rise to the point at which unskilled Americans will take the jobs and thrive rather than simply exist on the fringes of welfare.

    Stop trying to wrap this issue in emotion, it has nothing to do with emotion and everything to do with the hidden subsidies for agriculture and food processing. Tomatoes sell for 99¢ a pound here, with pickers making $8-$10 per hour. So it costs Taco Bell and McDonald's almost nothing to add tomatoes to the menu. Meanwhile, we're paying thousands of dollars per illegal alien in all sort of taxpayer funded costs like emergency room visits, obstetrics, childbirth, schooling for the illegals and their anchor babies, etc...

  5. Yes. I want and will support a law that allows all LGBT from anywhere in the world to come here, live and work, and become citizens of the United States. If you are LGBT, the door is wide open for you, no questions asked. We have it for the Cubans, why not for LGBT too.

  6. jht - Are you really that stupid? American citizens are entitled to equal protection under the law. That is the basis for opposing rights which discriminate against gay people.

    Illegal aliens, on the other hand have no claim whatsoever on the UNited States. We have NO OBLIGATION to them. There is no "fairness argument" to be made here. Moreover, even if there were a fairness argument to be made, are you aware that that US admits more immigrants LEGALLY every year than several Western European nations combined?

    Our immigration laws aren't broken, illegals are simply breaking them.

  7. I hate this immigration fight because I believe hardworking people, trying to better their lives, should be able to move here and contribute to our great society. People who are staunchly anti-immigrant are likely anti-latino and are using immigration fight as a sheet to cover racism.

  8. Well I wondered how long it would take for Rick to turn this into another session of the He-man Woman Haters Club. So predictable.

    @jht, I find it more astounding that so many of them are delusional enough to think their ancestors came here legally. If we were to deport everyone who came here under nefarious circumstances, most of us wouldn't be here.

  9. "I hate this immigration fight because I believe hardworking people, trying to better their lives, should be able to move here and contribute to our great society. People who are staunchly anti-immigrant are likely anti-latino and are using immigration fight as a sheet to cover racism."

    Drive around East LA and see how "hard-working" the second generation is, once they have citizenship and can collect welfare, get food stamps, are covered by Medicaid, etc.

    There is a reason the countries these people come from look like they do and are as backwards as they are--because the cultural mindset of those countries, in the absence of the immediaet prospect of starvation--is not to be hard-working, but to sit on your lazy @ss all day long.

  10. Reality - Keep on shouting racism. See if that works for you. Illegal immigrant isn't a racial classification you ignorant turd.

  11. A vicious, racist, father-and-son thug team tight with the Mexican Mafia, Santiago "Chico'' Rios and his deaf adult son Louis "Lil' Chico" Rios, have been sentenced to long prison terms for pouring drugs into and out of suburban Azusa -- and making it their No. 1 duty to "cleans[e] African-Americans out of the city.''
    In a big win for gang detectives, the bigoted, drug-peddling Rios, 48, got 20 years in federal prison and his equally noxious son, 22, got 10 years. The pair roamed Azusa scaring the bejesus out of people, with their faces, heads and necks tattooed with "Azusa.'' In court, they were bedecked in chains:

    Azusa may win its peace back.
    According to City News Service:

  12. @me,

    "every illegal alien with a job has stolen someone's ssn to get that job"

    How do you know THAT?!
    Speak after doing some 'thinking'.

  13. @"...and making it their No. 1 duty to "cleans[e] African-Americans out of the city.''

    They wouldn't have suceeded. Hagatha Hearne, you've been trying to accomplish that since 1865. We're still here.

    Tell me, why didn't you become a vampire while you were still young and fairly decent looking? Why would you wait until you're an old hag?

  14. Derrick; you are an idiot. The Mexicans are tearing the hell out of the congoids in Los Angeles; they are the reason that FW Morris Dees can keep claiming that congoids are the #1 victims of hate crimes in the US.

    Meanwhile, in London the Muslims are terrorizing the Afro-Carribeans and trying to drive them out.

    BTW- That was a stupid remark, even for you. In 1865 we were trying to hold on to our black people, not drive them away. It was the yankees who wished they hadn't opened the door so wide. I mean seriously, look at what you people did to Philadelphia.

  16. @Hagatha I suggested to Derrick that he spend a month traveling around Mexico or Central America and come back and tell us how he was treated by his fellow "people of color" (assuming he survived to tell about it, which is a 50-50 proposition).

    Yeah, the offspring of the illegals voted for Obama, but not for the reason Derrick imagines (to "get Whitey")....no, they just voted for the same Medicaid, food stamps, and other free goodies that most of Derrick's neighbors voted for......

  17. @sean,

    If your grandparents (or their parents) had had just as much as luck as those villagers in Nogun-ri (or in any of scores of more pre-TV My Lai-esque massacres around S. Korea), probably they would have been buried in a hurriedly dug mass grave (Thanks, Uncle Sam!), chances are your self-righteous tirade might stay there, too, I think.

    As much as the Korean War was a fiercely demonstrative( "Shoot/kill first, ash/figure out later, as 'all the g&&ks look all the same'! That'll show the Ruskies and Ch&nks! ") surrogate war, which basically finished off whatever left of the assaults of imperial
    rampages ("Japs can take Korea, We'll take the Philippines!"), so many undocumented Latinos themselves are victims of the systematic and intentional destruction of democracies and self reliant (nationalist) economies south of the border!("NAFTA, anyone, as it is SOOO good at dismantling displacing the communities down there ?!)

  18. Hagatha is an alias of David Hearne, who is a troll just like Rick. Ignore them both. You'll live longer.

  19. "The Mexicans are tearing the hell out of the congoids in Los Angeles..."

    Then they'd better try to work it out because the LA Powlice Department aint friends of either group. That's why Black folks cheered OJ's verdict even though most knew he was guilty.


    "In 1865 we were trying to hold on to our black people, not drive them away."

    No, that was former slave holders who still owned their planatations. You trashy folks didn't own any slaves--you were murderous night riders smellin' like moonshine. Well, actually, you Hearne, was probably more like Cousin Randolf in Truman Capote's "Other Voices, Other Rooms"--an old debauched cross-dresser.


    " look at what you people did to Philadelphia."

    Yep, we got the Barnes Collection away from the racist suburbanites and now it's on the Ben Franklin Parkway. You ougtta' come up and see us sometime. If I know when you're coming I'll my best to get some Congoids to rob and beat the sh.t out of your old pale azz.

    @Rick, the b.tch,

    "...no, they just voted for the same Medicaid, food stamps, and other free goodies that most of Derrick's neighbors voted for......"

    They voted for a deserved chance to make the most of their lives in this country WHICH historically belongs to them even more than it does your illegal European azz.

    Posted by: Derrick from Philly | Apr 2, 2013 5:21:08 PM


  20. Wow, Derrick,

    1- you are trying to insult me by saying that my family didn't own slaves? That's rather amusing. BTW, there are records.

    2- OJ was not guilty. It doesn't even make sense to think he was.

    3- When my mom was a little girl, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and DC hadn't been ruined by blacks yet. You know it's true, it just embarrasses you. It sad that you had to be born into that culture, but ya are Blanche.

  21. When 70% of the African American population in CA voted for Prop 8, we were all shoched that a community that understands discrimantion just decided to discriminate against us the LGBT community. Those who are not on board on the issue of LGBT illegal alliens are doing the same thing that the African Americans did to us. We are all in this together and we should ALL stick together to generate positive change! PERIOD!

    UMMM Sweets get over your hatred of Blacks it's 5 years later and you're still singing that broken record which isn't true. Reading is Fundamental Josh!
