This is my first vanity post, so be nice! I just heard on FoxNews that the meat packing company "Tyson" will be closing Monday to allow their employees so march in the protest on May 1st, which is this coming Monday. Are they an American company? They seem to forget that it's "Americans that purchase their product and keep them in business....

I also left them an email on their website stating my feelings on them supporting this protest march...

Okay, I feel better now..... Thank you! Please also go to the Tyson website and leave them an email as... ______________________________________________________________________________

See Post 156

I am trying to energize the boycott and Faxing Senators.

If you get a chance would love to have you join in.

:)Easy Does It:)

Cold Heat- Interesting and thought out reply. You did prove my point in your statement that you never lock your doors. By living in an area that allows doors to be unlocked, you must not be in a community with much crime. Usually, the folks in "nice" crime free areas are supportive of open borders; those in areas with many illegal immigrants don't think it's a great idea to allow it to continue or increase.

Communism, in my opinion, is not fading in the minds of the left. But, you are right that the power bases are dwindling, which makes it harder to point out to ignorant leftists as examples of what they really want and how horrible it really is. The groups behind much of the protests are communists and socialists. It's easy for them to use the "discrimination" angle to convince the less cerebral to join them in the "struggle" against the powerful capitalists. Hopefully, you will be right about it only flare up occasionally.

I would be supportive of completely open borders if we had a completely free-market economy and didn't have to pay for

I don't support open borders at all.

I am making the point that the answer is much more complicated because we must address the 12 million that are here as well. Not just the borders, and mass deportation is off the table, as is voluntary, if a carrot is not employed.

I live in Southern Arkansas. We have a large illegal population because of our timber, rice and cattle industries. I have had a few families as neighbors from time to time.

They have some social issues, but otherwise are generally law abiding, and theft is not one of their problems. It is mostly domestic issues.

We have crime, but 90% is drug related.

Yes, I must sadly agree. After many great visits to Mexico and loving the cuisine. I will not vacation with my family ever again unless and until they change their official stance on this issue in word and deed.
