William: Khathu -agree
vicky: they will khathu
Seventies Soulchild: Yeah Arizona is so special. . .
Khathu: If they don't then states have to take matter into their own hands
William: or else we will have 50 different state laws to deal with

Seventies Soulchild: That's just what they want William
Khathu: illegal immigration is a major problem that need to be address
Seventies Soulchild: Well its these big businesses who are driving this demand.
Khathu: unfortunately vicky that comes with the job
William: A BC in AR, driver license and cereal box tops in Cali etc
Khathu: i am sure anyone applying for the office of the president understand the duties
vicky: Ariz is going about it the wrong way. The framers of that law are the same ones that threw out the king holiday if that tells you anything
Seventies Soulchild: but lets be really real, they just don't want any more colored people or too many colored people in the U.S.
vicky: Russ Pierce is a known bigot!
Seventies Soulchild: Yes Russ Pierce is a white nationalist.
Khathu: even the devil can be right sometimes
Seventies Soulchild: You know do I have to get NOI on you Khathu? lol
Khathu: Heck the NOI does even believe the devil piece
Seventies Soulchild: Yea I know they do. but you know what's said about a half truth. ..
William: If you tell the truth you have to remember what you said- Mark Twain
Seventies Soulchild: The truth of the matter is these special interest groups have been peddling this 'population explosion' ala Charleston Heston since the 1970's in the main stream media via commercials and such. And do I have to break down what and who is meant by 'population explosion'? But back to genealogy... lol
vicky: lol @ seventies
