Default Somebody please 'splain this to me...

There is obviously a very vocal minority in this Country that wants open borders. I've seen pics of protesters carrying signs that read, "Muslim, Mexican, Asians...Let 'em all in!" Illegal immigrants cost this Country dearly in scarce resources, and some of them want nothing but to take over us and kill us. Nancy Pelosi even said that more illegal immigrants actually help law enforcement by their reporting crime. (Law enforcement understandably said, "Huh?". Is this vocal minority so dumb that they can't see that, or does the potential for Democratic voters cloud their vision?

To me, this is unbelievable. And the idea that George Soros is behind all this and funding it also eludes me: He does everything for money; what's in it for him, other than his wish to see America crumble? I can't believe that Soros thinks Welfare beneficiaries will give him some of "their" money.

Please help me understand this bizarre behavior. Don't say that it's just the way Libs think; I need some sort of logical explanation if there is one.

liberals are the party of 'caring'.

they care more about stuff than others.

they care about killers who want to kill you (how dare you defend yourself with a legal firearm?!)

just an extension of that idiocy.

And George Soros makes money by shorting currency futures, and crashing their economies.

I really wish I could explain it, because it makes zero sense to me.

you can't take it with you. you lose control when you are dead. so you may as well use it wisely while you are here. dying rich is stupid.

Because without grievances the Democrat party would have nothing to use to usurp power. The worst thing that could ever happen for them is if you could wave a magic wand and fix all the causes they co-opt. They would have to find or invent a whole set of new ones in order to try to be relevant.

It is truly unbelievable. I don't know (except two flamers on facebook I blocked) any liberals that I can ask. I do have one friend I can't wait to talk to soon to get her opinion. Her husband, a very good friend of mine, Is a retired democrat politician. I wonder what he will say.

It's all about votes and power. More illegals means more votes. Typically Democrat votes. This is why they don't want any form of voter ID. If the illegals were voting Republican, they'd change their tune in a hurry. The protesters themselves are just a bunch of useful idiots that just feel good about protesting. Makes them feel like they matter. I doubt that even a handful of them can fully articulate any major issues.

Two things come to mind......First it's the 'not in my backyard' syndrome where it sounds good from afar but it's far from good up close.....like the idea of communism sounds great but in practice it's the worst system there is.....where everyone owns everything, nobody owns anything! (or gives a crap about it)
Second....it's sounds good in theory ......until one of them rapes your sister.....

I never said that it worked out great for anybody.
If I wanted to be sarcastic, I'd have said that it worked out even better for France.
While immigration is inevitable, the vetting process that Trump wants is perfectly fine imo.
Take the good ones and ship the bad ones to Somalia or something.
Evolution happens, so they say.
My point is that it is a much more complex subject than just a sarcastic thread title.
Actually, it did work out great for the US prior to the US entering WWII.

Population shifts are inevitable and simply are a part of evolution.
For example. China.
They restricted each family to one child for the longest time. On paper, that's a great idea, however, they are finding out that it's going to take 20 years to reverse the results of it.
Why didn't it work?
The Chinese mean population is getting older and there will not be enough people to take care of all the old people, AND work in the vastly expanded economy that China has enjoyed for the past 15 years.
They no longer restrict families to one child.
It's kind of the same thing here in the US, albeit not exactly.
The baby boomer gen is ageing, families naturally are having fewer children, consequently, there is a shortage of skilled workers and lower menial workers.
Where are they going to come from? The welfare rolls ?
Through natural selection, immigration and new US births.
Vetting immigrants, expelling undocumented refugees and immigrants, and getting all undocumented aliens documented are all crucial to the US collecting the taxes that they are owed. That's what it all comes down to.
Not the fact that huge amounts of deadly zombies are streaming into our country.

Perfect example: gay marriage.

When gay marriage became legal, they no longer had that issue to scream about. So, they created a false problem with the transgender bathroom issue. Transgender people have been using the bathroom since the beginning of time. Sometimes (*gasp*) within the bathroom of the gender to which they identify. No one was the wiser. It's been happening for-e-ver.

All of can sudden, however, it was a cause that needed fixing/addressing because the Dems said so.

You didn't say it worked out great for anybody, but the stuff you linked certainly didn't point out how shitty it has been.

The reason it worked out well for the US pre WWII was because we were very strict on who we let in. Political correctness had not been invented yet.

It is also far easier said than done to ship the "bad ones" out once they are here. Once here, they are our problem. No other country is going to gladly accept our rejects.

The Democratic party has been emasculated and are just grabbing for anything that they can latch onto at this point.
Take Charles Schumer for example.... He's a total soup of the day politician going nowhere.

Schumer is to New York what Rahm Emmanuel is to Chicago. They keep re-electing these craptastic politicians and then wonder why their cities are such shitholes.

x 1000

Now here's a woman who knows what the feck she's talking about. I was in the entertainment business in Southern California for 15 years. This was at a time when, even in California, it still wasn't fashionable or even advisable to come out as being gay. I had countless gay friends and colleagues whom I worked with, went clubbing with and socialized with. There was NEVER even a discussion about bathrooms. This whole transgender business is a bunch of made up nonsense.

The exodus is a sad, sad thing. It is a bad thing also for Europe and the Americas. The money spent accommodating refugees would have been better spent by stopping what they have been fleeing from. That would have resulted in lots of collateral damage, something like WWII for instance. We don't have the stomach for that kinda shit.

Those of us that can actually think for ourselves know what is going on. Soros and his whole family, inner circle, etc. should be banned from this country for life. If these libtards want the muzzies here so bad, then I think they should open their homes and shelter, feed, and generally take care of all their needs with none of my tax money helping to pay for it. Then when the savages cut loose with a suicide vest and leave a crater where the libtards live, then maybe they will understand how bad it is for our country. Doubtful though....
