Me? Lobby? C'mon marg. :shk: I am your regular american guy, working a crappy job, who's only interest in this board is discussing the issues of
today with other intelligent people. Period. Got it now marg? I am not paid, I have no affiliation or interest in any political party except maybe a
"Constitution" type party, and to be honest, I don't know as much about those parties as I should, cause I spend almost all my free time on ATS or
reading news to be informed.
And as to me lobbying against immigration, I think you had better re-read some of my posts on the issue marg. I don't like ILLEGAL immigration marg.
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Not legal immigration, which is fine, and which we have a legitimate system for. Many people here feel the exact same way, like
BH for example.
So tell me where do you stand now . . . when it comes with Israeli Americans having to take confrontations from Lebanese Americans,
Syrian Americans, Palestine Americans or let say the entire Arab American community in the US .
Well, I'll tell you where I stand once those confrontations HAPPEN marg. The guy who did this shooting was a Pakistani with a criminal record, so I
suppose you meant to put Pakistani-American in there too but forgot?
Very interesting Issue you know, who is more American than who now?
Yes it is an interesting issue, but the second part of that statement doesn't make much sense to me.
If you are in any way referring to my
screenname, TrueAmerican, you should know that the only reason I have it is cause the day I registered on ATS I needed a name, happened to look over
at my Guild guitar, and it said "True American" on the head stock. I am not trying to be more or less american than anyone else, and in retrospect,
wish I had a different ID cause some people around here think I'm trying to be Mr. USA or something. IT'S JUST A SCREENNAME.
Remeber the problems we have after the 9/11 and the muslin comunity?
Humm . .mm yeah they were afraid also . . .
Yes I do. I remember reports of Muslims being shy for a while and laying low to avoid potential backlash. But I doubt because of this one incident
Jewish Americans will do the same.
