People are stupid and lazy. The sooner you make peace with this fact, the sooner you'll be able to focus on ways to change it rather than just bitching like some whiny toddler.
Seems that's what you're advocating.
Otherwise you're just sticking up for those who broke the immigration laws (the ones who snuck in, and are already here), while fucking those who tried to obey the law and stayed in Mexico because they weren't legally allowed to come.
It's extremely foolish from a legislative standpoint to reward those who broke the rules and punish those who followed them.
I am not saying that we shouldn't give the opportunity to Mexicans to come here and work certain jobs that Americans typically don't want. I'm saying that we need a better process for that than simply expecting a certain percentage of them will break the immigration laws, and reward them for doing so.
This space for rent.
Breaking the law to come here and live a much, much better life than in Mexico seems like a very, very small crime to me.
No, i'm not advocating an open border and I DO believe there must be substantial immigration reform(though I don't believe either of us can speak about the current laws or what necessary future legislation would read like.)
All I'm saying is that if someone is working, paying taxes and abiding the law, then it is a very cruel and reactionary thing to advocate their forceable removal and such a policy would have little positive effect on anyone.

You think the Sunnis will massacre the Shias if the Damascus falls?

More person freedoms.
"Some people just need a hi-five in the face."
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Wednesday appeared to suggest a link between the Supreme Court’s rulings on gay marriage and marriage between a human and a non-human, but later walked back that suggestion and said it was a joke.
“It is difficult, because if we have no laws on this, people will take it to one extension further – does it have to be humans?” Paul said Wednesday in an interview with Glenn Beck, after Beck suggested some unintended consequences of the rulings, including polygamy.Paul introduced the Life at Conception Act, a bill that would declare that human life begins at conception, grant fertilized eggs the same legal status as born persons and would completely criminalize abortion in the United States. “The Life at Conception Act legislatively declares what most Americans believe and what science has long known – that human life begins at the moment of conception, and therefore is entitled to legal protection from that point forward,” Paul said in a statement. “The right to life is guaranteed to all Americans in the Declaration of Independence and ensuring this is upheld is the Constitutional duty of all Members of Congress.”

I like roads, they give me personal freedom.
Shut the fuck up Jebus and get yankin on them bootstraps
I think Vigo's point is that government is the only thing we have to counterbalance corporate power. the "Less Government" mantra plays right into their hands.
I've got lint in my navel with more insight than you.
This country could have really used Romney as President. Its too bad they had to go and fuck everything up with their views on abortion. Even though nothing would have happened in terms of changing the laws on abortion.
Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

As annoying as it is that this administration has not been able to do much, it is still better than what Romney offered. I will take treading water over sinking.
