Sure, how about the illegal immigration issue in the united states for starters? There is positively NO thin end of the wedge. It's black and white. If you don't pay taxes, are not on a legitimate visa and are otherwise unaccounted for, GET THE FUCK OUT (no matter what race they are) because I am tired of supporting their ass.
Dx- You are forgetting that the native americans had all kinds of atrocities committed against them when your (our) immigrating ancestors went looking for a better opportunity for their families and left their more oppressive countries.
Don't tell me because I don't feel like supporting a bunch of uneducated third world country vagrants that I am a racist. This ain't no flop house my man, and there is NO free ride.
I would challenge your assertion that you are educated by the fact that you are so closed minded. Any idiot can graduate from high school in the US, all it takes is being foolish enough to be present every day to accomplish that much.
If you haven't made it to the point in this life where you pay taxes (and not just get a refund), you vote and you support others as well as yourself, you wouldn't have a clue, nor would I expect you to.
Most illegals would gladly pay taxes if provided the opportunity to reside and work legally. I'm guessing that you would have less tax evasion from such illegals than you would from many die hard chest thumping americans.
Intolerance is assuredly justified as long as it's qualified with hard logic. You should only get out, what you put in. Claiming that you do a bunch of jobs that no one else is willing to is an excuse I am sick to death of hearing. Who did the jobs prior?
I would more appropriately change your quote to "Intolerance is assuredly justified as long as it's qualified with fuzzy logic". That sounds like a more honest interpretation of the closed minded/xenophobic or possibly worse logic you are using. It really blows my mind that so many americans believe that the "american dream" and the "land of opportunity" only applies to their ancestors, never applied to the native americans, and shouldn't apply to anybody outside our borders.
True there needs to be some sort of order and law in immigration....if you work here you should pay taxes and not depend on the system, a more liberal policy will achieve that goal quicker than copying the Chinese and building a wall will. (Besides if we deport 15 million illegal mexicans, would there be anybody left still qualified or willing to build such a wall?)
Pay the same price that our forefathers did. Fight your own battles and stop depending on us to bail your ass out when you don;t have the balls to pay the price that we already have.
Finally, amen to that and something we can agree on! (partly) If only we would let the rest of the world take care of their own problems rather than forcing our will onto them.
