The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light
Dear Readers,

Today it is indeed a Historic day, not for good but anyway difficult to forget. The Republican party nominated few minutes ago a Candidate that a year ago came out with a campaign against the immigrants, blaming them for all what is not working well in this country. Never before in American History a politician had targeted one of the most fundamental progressive factors that have made this nation unique in the world.

Pls read:

www.usnews.com...

America became great thanks to people like Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Joseph Pullitzer, Verner Von Braun, Ieoh Ming Pei, Felix Frankfurter, Irving Berlin, Igor Stravinsky, Joseph Murphy, Edward Banister, Rita Rodriguez, Anthony J Drexel, Joe Muir, Rita Moreno, Henry Kissinger, Madelaine Albright, Eddie Van Halen, John Lennon, Martina Navratilova, Jose Silva, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Joni Mitchell, Jerry Yang, Arlond Schwazeneger, etc.

Please read:

www.vox.com...

America is Great for its ability to absorb great momentum from the synergy of talents, skills, contributions from a cultural diversity that is only possible thanks to a dynamic of different migratory currents.

No doubt today Abraham Lincoln died second time when Donald Trump was nominated to continue leading a xenophobic and racist campaign that is already accused of bigotry by even Republican figures that were absent of this convention, showing their rejection to this candidate , including former Presidents.

Please check:

www.heritage.org...

There voices of protest in Cleveland today trying to stop the no sense of to see this infamous act of nominating a candidate that promotes ideas against the most essential values of a party that in mid XIX century went into a civil war precisely to eradicate slavery of immigrants in this country.

Please check:

www.yahoo.com...

The thread is open as a reflection of the moral crisis of values that have opened the situation that today finally became an extremely sad and worrying fact, one that represents no doubt a moment of decadence that Historians of the future will have a lot to analyze in decades at future.

I believe the book by the Nobel Peace award President Jimmy Carter : Our endangered values, America's Moral crisis is a really good material for national reflection and to understand why we have arrived this so low point of degradation of the truly American values, the one that has opened the possibility to have an openly fascist candidate running for the white house!.

Thanks for your attention,

Lincoln loved Immigrants.
Especially the Irish.
Most of the men could be coaxed right in to the army since none had jobs.
Grant made wonderful use of them as lead catchers on his road to Richmond.

Trump isn't against immigrants.
He's against not enforcing immigration laws.
Big difference and nothing racist about it.

How dare you defy The Angel of Lightness and their impeccable definitions of what is and isn't illegal

Reinforce laws? , there is a sense of irony in that, why don't we analyze some of the ideas that Trump has been pushing along this year? to see if your opinion is well based:

when he has openly said that ALL the Mexicans that come to America are criminals? when he has dared to propose laws that are against the universal declaration of human rights like to TAKE AWAY citizenships from people that actually was born in this country just only because they were children of refugees?, when he also suggest that ALL the Muslims not just coming but already living here are terrorists?

How about his public demonstrations of sympathy with white supremacist groups like KU KUX KLAN? What do you thing Abraham Lincoln might think of such endorsements?

when he is masking his own inability to propose intelligent ideas to move this country ahead using a smog curtain of a distraction sophism in times that America is having the lowest rates ever of foreign illegal immigration?

Please talk about illegal immigration when the Immigration system of the country would be really fair, when an immigrant can present his or her case to the immigration authorities knowing that would be treated over an equally based checking, since the current one gives clear discriminatory privileges to Asian people wanting to immigrate over Hispanics and even Europeans.

It is not the quality of the immigrant application what decides the admission but the nationality.


Thanks,

The Angel of Lightness ,

Dear Angel of Lightness,

Why should I read any further when right off the bat you're pushing misinformation and neglecting to mention the enormous difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants.

He didn't blame "immigrants" for anything, let alone for "all what is not working well in this country".

You have no clue of history do you. Lincoln didn't free the slaves because he thought it was right. He wasnt an abolishnist. He did it because he believed in a free economy it was a business decision. In fact would it shock you if I told you Lincoln said this in a debate.

Charleston, Illinois, on September 18, 1858, “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races,” he began, going on to say that he opposed blacks having the right to vote, to serve on juries, to hold office and to intermarry with whites. What he did believe was that, like all men, blacks had the right to improve their condition in society and to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

A businessman will always chose business and what's good for it. So you could argue that him and Trump are very similar. For Trump stopine illegals is about business. And I have a feeling thr black community will figure this out. One problem thr black community has is low paying jobs.

You can argue part of this is caused by illegal immagration. The other part by corporations removing manufacturing from the US in search of this cheaper labor. If he can make it more costly for them to manufacture in foriegn countries this pattern will change. Look at Detroit the intire city is mired in poverty all manufacturing has left. The way to revive cities is to bring manufacturing on to them and for governments to stop being hostile to business. In places like Detroit thet wanted companies to pay more and more and priced themselves right out of a job. To be honest I'm not sure trump van do anything about it at this point but I will say what we have been doing isn't working.

Mexicans make up 28% of the immigrant population here. They're doing more than fine compared to most from elsewhere with Asians slightly above them.

Your last part is true but that's not a Trump issue, that's an issue with our immigration system. And I know first hand as I had to fight for years and spend over 10K in attorney fees for my now wife's right to stay here even though she had a green card and a Master's degree. The issue? She comes from a former communist state. The US doesn't like that too much.

If you want to talk about our broken legal immigration system, which Obama campaigned heavily on fixing and has done nothing to confront it, go right ahead. But you're Trump trollin' right now.

And btw, the elephant in the room when taking Mexicans out of the larger picture is that the majority we're legally accepting from Asia and India have advanced degrees. Please don't cry "Asian privilege" without acknowledging their superior education.

You can't destroy someone you don't like when you use falsehoods and twist the truth just to suit your hatred of them, as you are doing here with Trump. It isn't working.
And when you do this you cannot be an angel of light, or be serving God. He doesn't play favorites either so you do not have elevated status and so are not getting away with it.
Whatever is going on in your head, it isn't working.

Shame on you AOL for spreading lies. You know that's #9 on God's Big Ten, don't you?


they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they're telling us what we're getting."


Every bit of what he said is true. Where have you been? Have you not read and heard the statistics about illegals committing crimes, not just petty misdemeanors, but felonious crimes. Some they send are good people, just as Donald acknowledged, but the border guards are telling him the truth. Criminals are flowing over our borders.

Donald advocates getting a grip on the out-of-control ILLEGAL immigration. Legal immigration is supported by him. He is absolutely 100% right.

You have bought the bs. Naughty.

Dear Mystic Pearl,

What is that Former Communist State that your wife came from? I am curious since if it is in Europe or in the former USSR the reason could be not the one you think, if that is the case, the migration quota of those countries is extremely low year by year thanks to the discriminatory system exist that give privileges to countries that it is said had lower proportion in immigration historically to America.

Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Moldavia, Rumania, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Czech republic, all former Yugoslavia countries, Hungary, Bulgaria are all nations that have extremely high proportion of immigrants to America in the XIX century and so are blocked by the discriminatory system of immigration quotas.

Trying to promote diversity the system of quotas instead promoted lack of quality in the immigrants, since it is national origin and not personal profile what really has weight for a decision of admission.

Look Queensofswords,

The massive consumption of drugs in this country is an issue since 1920s, and when the narcotics have not come from Mexico or south America they came from far east and even from North Africa, and right now is a lot what is coming from Afghanistan.

Many countries that are now pointed as producers of drugs were no even in that activity before America lost the Vietnam War, since Indochina was until 1960s the principal provider of Narcotics here.

What says that to us? that the main cause of this terrible drama that is destroying millions of lives is the existence of domestic mafias that have controlled the distribution and consumption for almost a century.

It is so grave the impact of the underworld economy in America that two Presidents were literally Assassinated in 1960s just because they opposed to the expansion of the already huge power of the organized crime, one when he was in office, JFK, and another one when he was the most likely winner of 1968 election: RFK.

The decision of JFK to don't backup the war in Vietnam was decisive to decide this terrible death, there were so many interests in game among the organizations that were trading incredible amounts of morphine and heroine from that country.


Now, as far as I know George Jung didn't have any Hispanic or Mexican root at all, he was a proud Bostonian, and he is by far who made so popular Marihuana smoking and the consumption of Cocaine massive in America since 1970s. By the way it seems he has gained freedom recently, in spite of to be responsible for up to 89 percent of the coc aine smuggled into the United States.

Please read:

George Jung inspired the film Blow

George Jung free in St Francisco

No it wasn't. He said that Mexico as sending these people. Now let's see you back his statement proving that the government of Mexico is choosing which people are being sent to America. It wasn't until his ignorance was pointed out to him that he start talking about illegal immigrants.

What he did believe was that, like all men, blacks had the right to improve their condition in society and to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

And how are they supposed to do these things if they are slaves? Lincoln started his public career by being anti-slavery.

Abraham Lincoln would have slit his wrists if he woke up and saw the rise of the "Nu-Nazi's" in the United States... just on account of their re-writing the English language, endless race baiting, pushing to end free speech, and modern methods of "book burning" all in the name of some bizarre SCI-FI "moral crisis" they invented.

Abraham Lincoln would never have allowed this 'mess' that is Washington, D.C. to have occurred in the first place.
