ialdabaoth: Aikidogamer: intelligent comment below: Aikidogamer: Natives are technically foreign invaders too...crossed a land bridge. They get good and pissed when you remind them of that fact."Natives" were the first humans to live in the America's.They didn't "invade" anyone's landAnd I did not invade anywhere because I was born here. I mostly point the previous comment out when someone wants to play the Native card in the context of illegal immigrants because it is all stupid and pointless. If you were born here you are native to the US. Period.Period?What if you were born here, but your parents were illegals?

If you were born here you are native to the US. Period.The only stupid and pointless argument here is when people still use the word illegal and native and how only "natives" have a right to stay. You have a right to stay in America if you live in America, that's how your ancestors got here.
Aikidogamer: a legitimate port of entry
intelligent comment below: Aikidogamer: a legitimate port of entrySo basically they just showed up and were granted citizenship, must be nice to be a hypocrite.
archichris: and needed new citizens
Aikidogamer: Way to cherry pick troll. As the rest of my post statedit needs to be easier like it was.Or you can just derp derp derpitty derrrrrrrrrp.
archichris: We can probably take care of every poor American Citizen, but if we open the flood gates to anyone who wants in, we arent going to get nobel laureates and rocket scientists, we are going to get millions of people who had nothing in their countries of origin and who will likely wind up in ghettos in america.
archichris: Dont forget that once you are on welfare, there is very little chance that you ever leave it.
archichris: Welcome to america heres your food stamp card now STFU and go live in the ghetto until we need your vote?
archichris: Very Liberal of you....and you dont even understand why that is funny.
archichris: But lately, when the economy is shrinking, and one political party is wholly invested in paying to care for every single poor schmuck with a vote, the more people we let in the more we put on the welfare roles and the more it costs to run things.
archichris: If you walk in here without a job and with no marketable skills, you are expecting to be cared for.
archichris: And I dont give a rats ass about the 3% of the federal revenue that comes from taxes paid by illegal immigrants in various ways. It is far outweighed by the cost of free healthcare in emergency rooms, border enforcement, crime in immigrant communities, etc....
archichris: You know.....
Securitywyrm: MATH TIME!$280,000 a month for two buildings, capable of housing 450 people total, to sit vacant.That's $9333 a DAY.Just what the hell is in these buildings that is costing over nine thousand dollars a day to maintain? Maintenance/security personnel makes $20 an hour(generously), times eight hours a day, $160. Let's say there's... a dozen staff for EMPTY BUILDINGS, 8 at one location and 4 at the other. $1920 per day on maintenance. Where is the other six thousand dollars going?This is why we can't have nice things, because nobody in the government has ANY incentive to cut spending. You spend all the money you can get your hands on, and then just blame the budget when money runs out. It's like in the military: You have to use every single consumable resource you're authorized to use, even if you're just wasting it. If you're authorized 10,000 rounds of ammunition, and you use 9,000, then next year you're only authorized 9,000. Better go down to the range and just blow through the ammo for no purpose.This kind of waste makes me angry. You look at how much money they spend to build these things, that would have paid RENT MONEY for every one of the people it could have possibly housed, for as long as the facility would have been open.
