    The growing Income gap is the result of our over-reaching Fed Government!Notice the income gaps start when we went off the Gold Standard and the Fed was free to print money for banks and Wall Street?

Their parents came over illegally seeking opportunity and bestowed that in their kids.

    See here we blame the public education system for our kids shortcomings, when we have raised a bunch of entitled brats. However, when someone is smart enough to embrace it, good things happen for them. Obviously my tax dollars are used for foolish things, but educating someone that wants to learn is not foolish and benefits me as a member of society, whether they stay here and work or go back to their home country.

    You guys are to shortsided in your thought. Educating folks makes the world better.
    Nope, they are stealing from me. The parents should have been tossed back and yes I mean tossed back as soon as caught. End jump, squat, plop now!
    Say whatever you want, but as a legal immigrant whose family followed the rules I have ZERO tolerance for any illegal or their spawn. I'm sure you label me as one of those brats. Far from it.

    I can only imagine how bad it must be for someone to leave their country and enter another one illegally but that doesn't make it right. Either enforce and live by the law or change it. As it stands now anyone who enters the country illegally should be deported.

    Yes there are children born here from illegal immigrants but it wasn't their fault. They should not be penalized for the sins of their parents. Again, and if my memory serves me right, the law states if you are born here you are considered a citizen. If people don't like the law they need to,work to change it.
    That law must be changed. Jump. squat and plop should not be rewarded end of story.
    Would anyone say that if a bank robber gave the money to their kid the kid should be allowed to keep the money? It is the same thing!

    NO they should not be rewarded for that and allowed to steal from taxpayers. I hope every one of them gets thrown back. Your response just hurts the situation. Play by the rules. Call me cold, call me mean, but I speak as someone who played by every rule.

    why does government promote uncontrolled spending
    why does the media twist facts
    why does government promote one race over another along with the media
    why does it seem like government want to control most things
    why do we live in a republic but behave like an oligarchy or dictatorship
    There are a million why's

    By Using worldly wisdom none will ever actually understand why... they will talk about simple solutions and the elected with give them complicated answers as to why they can't.
    Why because this is a spiritual problem that manifests in the flesh. The word of God has the simple solutions to all these subjects which most are covered.

    You fix the physical by fixing the spiritual period. The fact is if someone thinks they can fix my problems by taking more of my money and stifling commerce and feel the need to keep tabs on me,,,they are messed up spiritually and I'm not even talking about someone who doesn't believe in God. I'm talking of the God referenced in 11Cor. 4:4

    JC told some of the pharisee's that the devil was their father and not God almighty. In other words ,,,seed of the serpent. Those are the people controlling things. Seldom did the righteous control a government,,but often it was very subtly deceiving people.

    If this posts pisses some off here,,,then good,,wake up.

    OK there is your sunday morning sermon
    How about just shutting the leehes down. I don't bust my butt to pay for baby mammas drama. Lived her living across from me and below me on my dime,

    It is not about being cold. The children are playing by the rules. The rule says if you are born here you are a citizen. It doesn't say if your mother was here illegally it doesn't count. So as someone who plays by the rules I would expect you to understand that. Not that you need to like the rule, and for the record I don't care for it either, or even agree with it but if that is the rule then until its changed the rule stands.

    Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution reads:
    “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    The Fourteenth Amendment was passed by Congress in 1866 and ratified by the states in 1868. It’s been a part of the Constitution for almost 150 years.
    When a woman who is an illegal immigrant bears a child in the US, the Fourteenth Amendment makes that child automatically a citizen. If the mother is arrested and deported, she has to choose between taking her child with her or being separated from the child.
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    Let the views of others educate and inform you, but let your decisions be a product of your own conclusions. (Jim Rohn)
