Posted on 09/27/2007 2:24:10 AM PDT by Hi Heels
I need to vent a second. I believe in certain things. I believe in the right to carry a gun. I'm not posturing or showboating, but I can shoot. I've owned hunting dogs. I love all dogs. I rescue dogs. Right now I have 6 dogs. Silly chihuahuas to labordors. I actually worked for the USAF teaching women to shoot. Women who went into combat under cover. I love a good turkey shoot. And I joined a gun forum once. Ick.
I think that we have a problem with the border. That's my second biggest political concern. I'm a single mom with two jobs, 14 to 20 hours a day on my feet. Why? Because I want her to go to college. I want her to succeed. Instead I bill 8 million a year in pathology bills of which nearly 80% are MediCal Hispanic surnames. Illegals. Of which my taxes are nearly 50% because of my income and the fact that I am desperately trying to raise money for her college. I get to pay for some illegal childs ear infection and that interferes with me saving for my own daughter's education Go figure. So I joined "saveourstate.org" to help myself fight this heinous problem. Instead of addressing the illegal problem, I find this site is so rife with ridiculous name calling and stupidity that I thought I had wandered into a Hillbilly convention. I mean ...seriously...women dressed like Patty Hearst and men draped with the flag boasting about their relationship with Pelosi and the mayor of my own city and how they own bows and arrow and how they are so cool and look I have a pistol and it was the single most stupidest group of jackasses I have ever ment. I even told them, you idiots, they will turn on you and eat you like the young you are. I KNOW the mayor. So they banned me. No biggie. 20 minutes later the story was posted that the mayor crossed them. What a surprise.
Pelosi... hm. Whatever. So, I'd just like to accomplish two things here. One, tell I'd like to share stores about the stupidest forum you have visited lately (besides DU), and two. I'd like to take a second. Jim? Thanks. Thank you for a cerebral forum where, and God knows it's happened to me, you can argue to the death and even get in trouble, but it's pretty unlikely you'll be banned unless you're really inflexible, and I know people have been banned but PLEEASE, you have no idea how stupid it can get. And thank you for a forum where there's humor. There is none there. Believe it. And thank you for all your hard work. I know this isn't easy. With my schedule, people like me? We depend on people like you to get the word out. That brings me to this request. I have searched. I have looked. The forums addressing illegal immigration are rife with lunatics. saveourstate.org regularly shows yourtube video wherein President Bush is pictured setting the dynamite on the trade towers. How can we allow THAT to be the representative response to this issue? I'm asking for FR to make a more SOLID committed concentrated effort in fighting this problem. We need to bump it up. We need to make it the most single most important issue on the ballot. As a Californian, I know you see it everyday. Help. And God Bless you and your wife. What a great job.

If blogs were part of this question, Daily Kos would pop up very soon.
It’s like peanut butter on a bowling ball.
Folks talk big about "The Family," you'll hear sometimes the supposedly "new" revelation that Congress spent a $ Trillion since 1965 in the "unconditional War on Poverty, and "Poverty" is now up a point or two over that time and the side effect has been the supplanting of the role of fathers in "the family unit."
Who talks about the nearlyabsolute destruction of the "Extended Family."
Single Women are perhaps the last refuge for Western Civilization.
My "stupid forum?" Well, here in NC, perhaps it's a tough call. I'll toss in BlueNC.
had potential, sort of a politically based myspace, but geez, the stupidity! The God-hating radical homosexuals are truly nuts. The good news is, you can find a degree of common ground with resaonable people, but they are few and far between. anyway, I don’t go there anymore.
I think I know where you're at.
This is the only political forum that I visit, but, I took an assignment in Homestead, Florida about a year ago and the border issue has been on the top of my list ever since.
If you ride through downtown Homestead on Sunday the streets are crawling with these little 4'-10" border jumpers. They don't speak a word of English and they look at me as if I'm the interloper. Pisses me off to the max.
Hiding in the shadows? What a joke! These beaners walk the streets drunk, talking on cell phones and taking over all the city parks for their Sunday afternoon soccer (puss game) games.
The local cops ain't doing anything, the border patrol ain't doing anything, the state government ain't doing anything and the parasitic bottom dwellers in DC are actually encouraging these bastages to enter our (?) country illegally , stay here, and bring their damn families to sponge up all the 'free' services.
So. I believe that you and I share the same conundrum: venting anger on a forum yields zero results; ranting to our representatives in the cesspool known as Washington, DC yields zero results and sitting at home steaming about it yields zero results.
So, we're gonna either have to take matters into our own hands or surrender to the insurgents.
I'm ready if you are. But we need a plan.
The hell with our congressmen and the president. They've both proved themselves about as effective as tent in a tornado on this issue.
We need a plan. I've got a couple of ideas. One is to approach these border jumping turds, ask them if they have papers, and if you don't get the answer you like, call 911. I'm willing to beta test this if you think it's viable.
The war on poverty was always doomed to fail.
Jesus said the poor will always be with us.

You said it yourself. What does a person do to stop the invasion and the insanity?
I agree the level of discourse on FR is leaps and bounds above any other forum I have been on. These others are not as well moderated but it doesn't mean that people like you and me arent' angry over the situation. We just go about expressing it in a different way.
Here is one of the reasons why they are so angry. A U.S. Citizen is arrested for taking pictures of illegals. Why shouldn't they be pissed?
Jesus said the poor will always be with us.
That's b/c "poverty" is a relative thing. The "poor" in America live like kings compared to 90+% of the rest of the world.
Not brilliant, I know, but how many non-Freepers don't seem to know this.
Stupidest forum out there, let’s see...the AARP website comes to mind. You’d think old people would be smarter!
I've been to these protests. There is no way that guy walked across the street and confronted the "illegals". First of all because the "illegals" are supported by some fairly violent anarchists. No one goes near them.
Might as well stay as comfortable as you can.
You are sheep. Sheep get sheered. Sheepdogs keep sheep in line. Unlucky sheep get eaten by predators.
Unless you’re willing to pay the price for breaking the rules, try to enjoy the ride.
