This fiasco with seperating children from their parents at the border made me sick to my stomach.
Often these people are fleeing war torn countries, where their homes are destroyed and they are fleeing for their lives (yes I obviously know that isn't always the case....) They are denied access, then to boot, seperated from their kids.

Fleeing war torn countries is pure propaganda. The US doesn't share any land borders with countries in a state of war and you ain't gonna get a direct flight here from a war zone either. Anyone showing up in the US who claims to be from a war zone had already made it to a safe country and chose to travel on for other reasons.

Don't believe what you see on TV. The media is anti America. Bernie was a socialist  plain and simple. America is not a socialist country, not yet anyway.

As far as the illegal alien issues, Again don't believe anything the media says. Ilive in South Texas and see the impact of these people every day. Our schools are clogged with kids who cant speak English. English a s a second language is one of the bigger courses her. unfortunately the kids who can speak it are held back by the ones that cant. Don't get me started on the free lunches fiasco.

My wife works for the local county hospital. it is loosing $40 mil a year due to Obama care. The insurance mandate cut what the fed was paying hospitals to care for indigents. The current rate is 60% of the patients aren't paying for anything. Its got funding for about 90 days currently, nothing like living hand to mouth for the county hospital. one of my co-workers is a volunteer fireman in a neighboring county. There was a big traffic accident where @15 illegals were in a truck running from the law and crashed into a tree. They life flighted 10 of those illegals out. who do you think payed for that?

When and American mom and dad get busted breaking the law and theirs no-one to take the kids, guess what, they get put in a shelter. These illegals aren't any different. They came into this country ILLEGALLY, They could go back home as a family OR could give up their kids to a shelter and stay in this country for a chance at amnesty. Guess what THEY chose!

I'm sick and tired of the lies the media is putting out over these illegals. They are not here to make this country better, They will drag this country down to the same level as the 3rd world country they just left. How many of them do you see flying an American flag out in front of their homes??? ZERO.


Yeah, I'm a bit bitter.

I don't watch tv. What little news I read I read from articles or websites that aren't owned by large media corporations.

Yes, I can see you're bitter.

Sometimes I try to put myself in someone else's situation or life. Because I was born free, healthy, (white...), In an area of the world that is prosperous and safe. Not every child is so lucky.
I can say with a reasonable level of certainty, if I was born into a life of poverty, sickness, death-perhaps, I can tell you I'd do whatever it took to get the hell out. Even if it meant illegally. we all bleed red... I'm sure I wouldn't have the tens of thousands of dollars it costs to change citizenship, I'm fleeing a povern nation.
We can't all be lucky, I suppose.
Americans are very passionate about rights and country, yet, every single American who flies an American flag and is passionate about america does not actually descend from America. Hell, I didn't even descend from Canada. My mom is German and my dads family was from Russia. (almost completely wiped out in WWII).
I do believe America needs to figure out a universal healthcare system. Everyone pays a little bit so everyone can recieve health care. It is human to help one another. How many people do you know who are suffering because they cannot afford health care. I honestly can't say how devastated I'd be if my son died as an infant because we didn't have the $100,000 to save his life. That's not right... In all other situations they do not put a price on a life u til it comes to health care.
Look at those boys trapped in that cave. They must have spent hundreds of millions over that ordeal. Thousands of people involved, millions of dollars worth of equipment, fuel, travel, etc etc. But if those 12 boys fell deathly ill and none of the family's had the money to pay for the hospital, oh well, too bad, so sad... That's appalling to me.
I've just gone in a bit rant here... I mean no harm, Im not trying to offend anyone. Our lives up here aren't much better, only different.
Our health care system is constantly being cut. Nurses losing jobs left right and center. Look at cigarettes alone, they cost the health care system billions. (my wife is a highly regarded medical professional). I pick on cigarettes because they are voluntary. You CHOSE to smoke all your life, then when you're dying, you want the system to pay for you. Then when it does, and for free, you just go back to smoking because you know the system will always be there.
Were not innocent. But it's always easier to pick at the faults from over the fence... Right?


Ps. This is way too long to proof read. So, have at'er.

I did re-read it. I'm kind of all over the place. It's late, not thinking straight. I'm not even really sure what I'm getting at. Muricans be cray-cray and Canadians are ignorant.

I read into that a bit, well, one article, and all the titles. I canít help but see some right side bias?

Shawn, have you ever been to a gas station or grocery store in your neighborhood and been asked by an illegal immigrant what you are doing in their neighborhood? I faced that almost daily when we lived at our machine shop. I would go to the bank our company had done business with for 60 years and be ignored while waiting in the merchant line. I sometimes had to paint over graffiti on a daily basis that was painted on 2 walls of our building. I had to pick up trash and buckets of used motor oil and even the remains of goats that were dumped on our sidewalks and in front of our shipping and receiving door. The senior lead police officer told me to wear my gun after dark if I wanted to. Gunshots, sirens and police helicopters were a nightly occurrence.
That is not the America I grew up in but that is what it has become in sanctuary cities.

I experience none of that now where I live and I am in a majority conservative county. The liberal run city of Reno 40 miles north of us has turned into what I just described. You may think our president is a buffoon and that is fine. I laugh every single time I see your prime minister and hear him speak and thank the lord he is not our leader. I will take someone who wants to protect our rights and wants the willing to work hard people succeed and prosper instead of a leader who wants total control and gains favor with entitlements.

Fair argument. I have not experienced any of those things.

Our prime minister is a puppet. I'm aware of that.


Edit: spelling.

 All media is biased in one form or another. It just depends on which you read. If you go by internet groups all you will find is one side of the story. So what do we do? We read and make up our own minds which makes us biased. What a crock, as far as I am concerned BIASED means you have two asses. So there!!!
