Sure it must sound rational and clear headed if you think the way he thinks.  He lost me in the first paragraph when he started telling me what immagrants want ... as if this honkey knows.  Nope, this is not clear headed political thinking.  This is just more one sided rhetoric.  There are two sides to this coin ... try seeing the other side ... then talk rational and clear headed.

I would suspect that a border agent who has come into contact with illegal aliens would certainly have a better understanding of what they want than YOU do!  Nevertheless for someone who doesn't believe in truth, logic or the rational 3456 this is par for the course.

The red herring you dragged thru the kitchen looked like this:
source: ... telling me what immagrants want ... as if this honkey knows
... That suggests that you think you know (maybe not).  Anyway I didn't say you did nor expressed that you did. I simply remarked that the border agent probably has a better handle on it than YOU!
Your other smelly herring looked like it was right out of Karl Marx or some other "worker's paradise" propaganda - to wit:
source: ... the opressor know best what the opressee wants
...  again I extrapolate your bloggings & find absurdity in the finest tradition of argumentation!

How many illegal immigrants have you talked to?  A border patrol agent is inforcing the laws of this country not "opressing" anybody. The next thing I can expect in your rantings is quotes from Carl Marx or Trotzky, eh ?

Seth says
Where above do you hear me talking for the immigrants ?   NOWHERE !  Again i caution you to stop putting words in my mouth ... stop propping up just the perfect absurd straw man that is just oh so easy to knock down.  It really does not improve the quality of dialogue ... even this kind of flame dialogue.

WTF: http://apne.ws/u9se77 ... proposal for an unmanned border crossing ... sad stories for the towns involved  Then again, is the USA responsible for taking care of Mexico & her problems.  As I have said elsewhere, the war on drugs creates a better price for what is normally a weed in Mexico. The market principles work.  Legalize weed & it will become the drug of choice.
