IMMIGRATION = INVASION?
Google “invasion” and it will tell you it is:
an incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity.
an unwelcome intrusion into another’s domain.
When we have millions who have crossed over without invite or authorization and who do not leave, it is an invasion.
Your second post is only worse than your previous one, if anything.
Excellent. You know, I don’t even try. It just comes naturally.
Who are you to talk of the “invasion” of the immigrants?
I am a US citizen. FWIW, I’m also a Persian Gulf vet too.
Didn’t your folks also immigrate — that is “invade” America from …I guess the British Isles, judging by your name?
I’m your typical Texan. I’m part Irish, part Choctaw that I know of, but like most rural White folks from the hills, I’m a mutt.
Let me guess: of the two faces on your profile picture, you are the one on the right. The white one, right?
My name is James. You figure it out, sunshine.
B.t.w. that is a weird profile picture — what exactly is the message you are trying to conway with the two faces there? That you are a good Christian and not a discriminating racist by any chance?
It is a picture of my wife and I when we went on a motorcycle trip a few years ago. When I transferred my info over to make the profile, the pic transferred too. I’m not trying to “conway” anything, but I will NOT hide who I’m married to.
This is the second time you have brought up my interracial marriage in the past few months. It is in very poor taste to bring one’s loved ones into any internet discussion. It is chickenshit to bring up a spouses race. Do not do it again.
The only ones who have the right to moan about the “invasion” of the “aliens” are the indigenous peoples, the Native Americans.
I’m part Choctaw, so according to you stupid criteria, I qualify to complain about the invasion. The main things are that you do not set the criteria and that I am a US citizen.
The ones your folks had litterally wiped off the face of that continent making and “honorably” breaking the so called “treaties”; the remnants of whom you Christian folks so “humanely” keep in RESERVATIONS TO THIS VERY DAY IN THE 21ST CENTURY, for crying out loud!
My folks are my parents. They did not make any treaties with native tribes. They are not that old. No one is kept on a res anymore. So-called Native Americans are US citizens, so they can move about the country and live anywhere in the US they please. Do you know where they cannot live though? MEXICO AND OTHER COUNTRIES. Because they are not citizens of that country. (unless they are authorized by that countries government, of course.)
“Illegal aliens”… ts ts ts! What arrogance…what bigotry!
Illegal aliens are what they are. How am I a bigot for using the legal term for what they are?
If you WASPs didn’t legalize your own selves, you would still be as illegal an alien in America as any other one you call alien.
My ancestors are not settlers, they are legal immigrants and natives. Anyone who is not from this country and has either invaded or overstayed their visas are illegal aliens.
If I were you I’d stop reading the Bible every day but rather freshen up on your knowledge of history, you (2nd or 3rd generation) immigrant!
If you were to stop being a reactionary elohssa and bone up on the English language, you would know that it’s impossible to be a second or any generation immigrant. The term “immigrant” only applies to one generation, after that, we are citizens.
I would say Mexicans are much closer to home in America than you are, whose grandparents had come from a bit further away — escaping starvation at home and seeking a better life on somebody else’s home ground.
No. I’m a US citizen. They are Mexicans. They are home when they are in their own country. I am home when I am here. My grandparents were US citizens too.
What else? So tell me: what makes YOU more entitled to a better life than any other today’s immigrant to America?
I am not entitled to a better life than anyone else. I am entitled to live here because I am a US citizen. Legal immigrants are entitled to live here too, as long as they met immigration law. Illegal aliens have nor right to be here. It is not their country. It is ours. They should go back to their own country.
Because you INVADED it a bit earlier in time than others and claimed it as your own, God given property?
I didn’t invade, I was born here by parents who are US citizens.
Because your folks were desperate and hungry a hundred years earlier back in Ireland or England, or wherever exactly they came from, BRUTALLY INVADING the new “hunting grounds” of America?
My father is a retired electrician. My mother was a retired RN. They were born here. They didn’t brutally invade anything.
Let me tell you another thing: Compared to your grandparents’ alien immigrant invading ways, the today’s immigrants from “south of the border” look to me like the timid, blushing brides!
Both sets of grandparents were born here.
You guys were brutal, wild and lawless!
The Americas were populated with various tribes scattered all across the land. They did not have common language. They didn’t even have a written language. This made them “pre-historic” as folk tales are not very accurate way of recording history. They had not invented the wheel. They were literally stone aged because they had not learned to create any metals. Many of their ways of living were “brutal, wild, and lawless”.
Waving your Bibles while killing the Native Americans, committing the worst genocide in the history with determination of a hungry wolf pack without a remotest single Christian scruple or apology!
My ancestors were either natives or immigrants. They were not settlers. I am not guilty for what they did anyway, I’m only guilty for the things I do. If you think I’m guilty simply because I’m White, you are a racist.
And you have the audacity to see yourself as a likeness of Jesus… Then I expect you to forgive my angry outburst and my harsh words here, you being a humble, charitable Christian and all…
I do not see myself as a likeness of Jesus. Far from it. I am simply a follower, a sinner who clings to His mercy. Of course, I forgive you, but do not bring up my wife or our interracial marriage again.
