You realize there are a ton of unions that are now republican, right? the left does not have a monopoly on labor unions, sorry. You decided too many of them weren't worth the time of day and they decided we cared more.
To an extent. I think requiring people to join unions is bullshit, but that they are there for people to join willingly does not bother me. They served an important role in the past and while I think much of the need for unions is gone, the fact that they are there probably helps prevent needing them again in the future.
I agree- But If union is present at a company then you should HAVE to join OR be a freelance employee with none of the benefits the Union negotiates for. And the Union shouldn't be forced to give those benefits to non members. Fair is fair.
They don't get shot by the cartel and we get people who will do jobs Americans don't want to do for cheap. Its a win/win. George Soros doesn't have a monopoly on muthaf*ckaz standin outside Home Depot.
There's a self proclaimed 'farmgirl' redneck wannabe troll here whom I told that to once, since naturally she and the rest don't work on the family farm. She's too busy memeing here till the middle of the night to do it though. Besides, she said, farming isn't constant work like everyone thinks.
For farm owners it sure isn't.
But as long as they can collect their subsidies, it's ok.
No they don't, because just being here illegally is a crime. They have a crime rate of 100%. If someone breaks into your house but turns out to be a really nice guy are you gonna be okay with him staying? Their choice to come without going through the proper process shows a lack of respect for our laws and our sovereignty. It doesn't matter whether they're committing more crimes when they're here or not.
The focus changed because we are sick of reading in the news about american citizens being murdered or **ped by people who weren't supposed to be here in the first place. It doesn't matter if 99% are peaceful, the 1% WHO SHOULD NOT BE HERE are killing people who have every right to be here. If the laws had been enforced, those citizens would still be alive.
There's no duping going on. Those legals are allowed to be here - their crimes are a byproduct of our society(however horrendous). Illegals are NOT allowed to be here - their crimes are entirely avoidable. There are ALREADY laws on the book that would prevent those deaths, if they would just be enforced.
And sure I'm sick of hearing of other shootings. That doesn't mean I'm okay with restrictions on our constitution. If road ragers kill loads of people every year should we all lose our right to drive big trucks or fast cars? No. How about when some nutbag in a mustang runs over protesters? Should mustangs be illegal now for everyone?
The 14th amendment is fine, so long as we stop the flow of people coming here illegally. If the child of a legal resident or a naturalized citizen becomes a citizen automatically that is absolutely fine with me. My mother is an immigrant from the Philippines that is now a citizen. (though she was a citizen long before I was conceived). Someone crossing the border illegally to have a child however IS a problem.
Which is why I said I'm fine with it. We need to stop illegal immigration and the anchor babies will stop or at least slow to a less alarming pace. Not enforcing laws is the problem, not the constitution.
"What they are doing is completely legal, as long as they don't lie on any immigration or insurance paperwork." I would say avoiding immigration paperwork entirely would violate that too, no? The article also mentions that those buildings are sub-leased out and there's no evidence that upper management is aware. Try again, please.
The focus did not change, During economic downturns, ire against illegals taking jobs no one wanted rises. Once the economy is healthy again and cheap labor is needed, people look the other way.
This goes back a century or so, you can look it up.
Anti-ethnic rhetoric is the tool of fascistic types, taking advantage of such woes during recessions & depressions. So that has been added to supplement, not supplant, such sentiments.
Except the rhetoric isn't anti-ethnic. You might want to learn the difference between nationality and ethnicity sometime, it might help you understand the things you try to argue. An american doesn't have a color, he has a citizenship. An illegal immigrant does not have that and isn't trying to get it, they are just trying to come here to get wealthy or to avoid problems in their own country. Our country is our responsibility. Our citizens are our responsibility. The same goes for them and theirs. If they are not citizens and are not trying to become citizens, they are NOT OUR BURDEN. We have enough people here who have a birthright to be here that aren't being taken care of without adding millions from other countries to the list.
You might want to learn the defintion of "Nationalism" - with some historical perspective to padd out your understanding.
psssst, it's me, remember? So hard core conservative it seems like satire to today's mushy interweb swathed alties.
Ready for more? Kick 'em out. All of them. Illegal, legal, oh, and you also. Get all those who do not belong here back to their homelands.
What? You're too mixed to send you to one European country? Fine, here's the compromise: sterilization. Been here your whole life and you can't even understand the language the English use back home, never mind German? Good, you get to live out you life here, but not breed.
In case you think that's satire, no. I've been saying this since the 1980s.
A 'half Asian' who gets all pissy claiming civilization - even the Bronze Age! - 'beginning' in Europe.
That, guy, made this a worthwhile hoot.
Parting gift: It was difficult for you to hold back from saying I myself use British-isms all the time. If you mentioned it, I would have asked how would you know. By not mentioning it, you hoped I had never read that exchange from the other day. But since I did see it and you didn't bring it up, it brings us back to why didn't you if you weren't hiding anything?
You just double down on the stupid.. does it hurt? At least you've finally moved on from your braindead "oh he's from St. Petersburg" argument. Or was I from bumf**k, Alabama or Nowheresville, Ohio? I believe you've accused me of living in all these places.
Forgot what? I never claimed to be a brit unless by blood(like 300 years ago), lol. Or are you talking about when I mentioned being half asian by blood? That's a long ways from Britain, bud. And I was born right here in the States. They must've forgotten your meds today. You should scold your nurse.
