    My great grandmother was full blood Cherokee and my great grandfather was full blooded Arapaho. I believe that puts me at 25% roughly. Not full blooded but I would consider it enough to matter. 
    My solution is secure our borders. Get the hell out of all these countries where we obviously aren't wanted, and that means our checkbook too. Take those resources and lock down our borders. 
    My solution, deport all illegals. If they have kids that were born in the US, deport the parents. If they want to take their kids with them, they are free to do so. If the kids are to stay in the US, it must be with a legal citizen or someone with temporary immigration status until that status expires. If the parents want them to stay, they will be put into foster care. If the parents want to stay, they will be given a short period of time to complete the requirements necessary for US citizenship. After completion, a 10% penalty will be levied on their income as penalty for breaking immigration law for a period of 5 years. 
    If the same illegal is caught a second time in the country, they are deported again, and all property they own in the US is seized and sold. 
    If caught a 3rd time, indentured servitude for a period of 7 years. At the end of that 7 years, they are deported again and given a lifetime ban from entry into the US for any reason. 
    For companies that are caught employing illegal aliens, they face a 20% penalty on their revenue for a period of 10 years. 
    May seem a bit extreme, but getting serious about securing our borders requires serious consequences.
    Personally, I think the policy of open borders is absolute national suicide. Since you brought up Native Americans, look at what happened to them because they allowed open borders. 500 years later, the various Native American Nations are now living on land that has been given to them by the invader's government after it was forcibly taken. 
    Lastly, how is someone who breaks the law by entering the country illegally not a criminal?

    Not a dem, not a pub. And I said willingly. A child being brought without a choice doesn't apply.
    if your first act as an "immigrant" is to break the laws of the country you are entering, then yeah, you are a criminal.

    100% of immigrants who willingly enter this country illegally are criminals.

    Something to remember is there is a huge difference between being unarmed and having the ability to cause grave bodily harm. A 225 lb guy that works out 6 days a week is much more of a threat than an 80 year old woman coming out of a bingo hall. A situation involving the man will escalate far more quickly than the woman simply because of ability to cause harm.
    We all have preconceived ideas based on life experience. They may not be right, but we rely on them anyway. Unarmed doesn't mean unable. My son in law is 170 lbs soaking wet but I have no doubt he could beat the poo out of 90% of anyone he squared off against. I didn't believe it until he showed me videos of his mma fights. He was one bad ass SOB. 
    My point is, we all judge based solely on appearance. Just because someone lacks a visible weapon does not mean they lack the ability to cause harm. It's a damn tough call and one I'm glad I don't have to make on a daily basis.

    Watched that video 10+ times. That BB gun looks real down to the visible silver of the barrel on the side. Cops shoot to end the threat. If it takes 1 or 10, when the threat is ended, you stop shooting.

  9. SmokinwithWilly added a post in a topic Confederate Flag.... Hate or Heritage?   

    I think the flag represents 3 separate things.
    1. It's historical. Whatever the "south" fought for is irrelevent. It is a part of southern history. It doesn't make it right or wrong. That's just what it is, a piece of history.
    2. The ultimate rebel symbol for southerners. Feather out your mullet, break out your case of beer, get in the back of a pickup, or your Camaro with 1 t-top if you're rich, and head out for a weekend of getting drunk and stupid. It's meant to show you're ready to throw laws and common sense to the wind. Your cousin does look kind of hot after 14 beers after all. You usually find these spending countless hours professing their love on an overpass or water tower.
    3. It's been used as the banner for white supremacy and hatred. Ignorant assholes continue to use it for that purpose and for most people, no matter what color you are, it rings as a symbol for racism.
    It shouldn't be flown on a government building. It shouldn't be flown by most people. I think there are historical places that it should be flown in memorial such as Gettysburg, antitam, chancellorsville, Bull Run, etc along side the American flag of the same time period. In these places it is as a learning tool to further understanding of the greatest loss of American life in war.
    My personal view is that it is a piece of history. It does hold some sentimental meaning to me because of what happened to my family when Sherman burned his way through GA. It also reminds me of the depth of commitment to a cause. I don't agree with slavery and never have. The courage it takes to throw my opinion out on a message board in cyber space is nothing compared to the courage it took for these men on both sides to fight and die for what they believed. No matter what their cause, they have my respect for having the strength to back their cause with more than just words.

    Why would any man want two wives? Trying to keep one happy is a full time job.

    Usually, it's from damage to a main. If its telephone or cable, a small nick or crimp can wreck havoc on signal.

    I always enjoyed trying to explain how a presidential speech ruined the entire night. It was on all 7 channels and there was literally nothing else to watch.

    I like tap beers because some of the microbrews don't have the ability to bottle. It also gives you a little more flexibility for the local guy  who can do some advertising for you if you carry his brew. 
    Ive always preferred tap over bottle. I've noticed that bottled beer tends to be warmer than tap because every time you open the cooler you lose cold air. I like my beer  as cold as possible.
