Great. Now we must all type with the knowledge that any single sentence or paragraph can be taken out of context and used in fact finding reports.
Well, I guess ATS is big time now. Here's something that puzzles me about the extreme right as seen in this paper and elsewhere- why is it Bush was
able to falsely lead us into war, sacrifice our troops for profits, pass draconian surveillance laws, everyone knows it, and the worst he gets is
shoes thrown at him. I've never heard of death threats directed at dubya. The gov. has been full of snake oil peddlers for at least a 100 years, and
always cherry picked the parts of the constitution they liked best. We all know we have never seen an honest politician in OUR lifetimes. So why all
the animosity suddenly? Imo, this animosity is plainly based on the fact the right is extremely uncomfortable with a person of non-white descent in
the highest office of the land (der taykin' ar jobs!-ya right). They see this land as intrinsically White and Christian, and everyone else as some
sort of dangerous sub human alien not fit to be in the same small town. Question- who hires "illegal" immigrants to do dirty work and pay well below
the value of the labor? White businessmen. Who exports jobs overseas to rake in tremendous profits off virtual slave labor? You guessed it!
Republicans! We have all heard the rascist vitriol and rhetoric (purple lips, tar & feather, jihadist, nooses, bone in nose pictures, etc...) And the
worst part of it all? If you have any criticism of the prez, such as why are we still in Iraq and Afghanistan? People look at you funny like some sort
of rascist tea partier. If you wanted a White Christian based nation,
A:you should have never left Europe for Indian land
B:you never should have imported Twelve million Africans to be your slave labor
C:You definitely should not have destroyed economically, spiritually, and culturally the native lands of most of the immigrants here. Who in their
right mind would leave their family, warm weather, and homeland for the cold winters of New York, Boston, London, etc? They come in droves because
their traditional cultural ecosystem is destroyed, they're monetary systems are now tied into western banks, there's usually a war going on, and
there's no longer anything to eat.
Also, what in the #3ll gives you the right to immigrate here thousands of miles across the Atlantic and poor starving Jose isn't allowed to walk a
few miles across the border of the land that used to be HIS to find work?
I just hope our super-mods stay ever vigilant and nip any violence talk in the bud. I love the meeting of minds that take place here, I love the
counter- arguments with people I'd probably never have a long discussion with elsewhere, I love our super researchers and those who comb the net to
bring us truly breaking news daily. I really don't want any dimwits bringing unwanted scrutiny and problems to this place of high IQ's and amazing
individuals. Long live ATS!
