Editor:

President Barack Obama is pushing for another amnesty; not surprising as amnesties like welfare checks buy votes.

I don't blame those who come illegally, await the next free shot, and bring their extended families. They come from countries in such bad shape those families are their only real anchor.

The Republican party wonders why these normally conservative people continue to a vote socialist regimen. (Other than that they come from socialist countries.) Until these immigrants come to understand that by doing so they are in fact destoying what they came here to be a part of, it will not change. They, like most Americans, have been misled.

Black Americans cherish their leaders not realizing those leaders achieve their success in life by keeping their own people down. Personal achievement reduce's ones dependence on others, so it must not be allowed.

Minimum-wage jobs, government checks, food stamps do not help someone get ahead in life. Instead, you are locked into a level of subsistence that almost gaurantees a high degree of subservience. You have to vote for whoever sighs the check or face the terrifying world of self-reliance. American was built individuals who asked for nothing more than an opportunity and to be left alone.

Two of the most popular liberal orginizations in America are two of the most dangerous. The founder of the American Civil Liberties Uninon stated his personal goal as the destruction of our form of government within his lifetime. His legacy is doing well.

Planned Parenthood was founded to end poverty by eliminating what the founder considered the root cause --poor people, in her words, especially the Negro race. How is that working out?

Martin Luther King, Jr., did not want his people to stand with their hands out shouting, "Where's mine?"

He wanted them to stand up straight and shout, "Give me a chance."

The Civil Rights Bill signed by Lyndon Johnson was passed by a Republican-controlled congress and its most strident opponents were the Democratic party. Strange how history is rewritten.

During the last century our liberty and the Constitution have been eroded till now we stand on what may be the final line in the sand. We must guard with fierce jealousy what little is left.

    Rewriting history includes trying to give the republicans credit for passing the civil rights act.

    But the votes were recorded, and show it was the democrats who passed the Civil Rights act, with the help of a some republicans:

    Senate: Dems 46, Repubs 27

    House: Dems 153, Repubs 136

    "American was built individuals who asked for nothing more than an opportunity and to be left alone." We asked to be left alone back in the 1960's too,but many of us were drafted to fight in a conflict started by spineless politicians who denied we even existed when we came home from war. What's in store for this country has been a long time coming,it won't be pretty and it won't be cheap. It will matter none which failed political party you belong to,as globalism will rule us all.So all this hooey about Liberals and Conservatives is nothing more tan distractions for mindless idiots led by the lying pied pipers of DC,of which Wyoming's three congressional dandies are part of.

    Nah! What IS strange,Rusty,is how YOU re-write current and past history to have it your way.What IS strange is that the GOP,like yourself,have gone half-circle and become the Dixiecrats of the bitter old South hating the end of slavery."Another Amensty", you mean letting the Bush-Cheney Iraq war,the wounded and dead,war crimes go unprosecuted,letting the too-big-to-fail Wall St. grifters to cause a crisis and no one goes to jail except one little loan officer? Face it Rusty,you don't know the difference between capitalism and fascism. Did you remember to feed the hungry? ddric

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
