nw30, nice one. Schooled in history right here on the World Wide Web. The constitution can be a pain when your party is not in power, huh? But when they regain power I guess you'll become a constitutionalist again.

And repeal that stupid law that attracts pregnant illegal women into our country, you all know the one, 'any baby born here is automatically a citizen'. That should have been repealed long ago, no good comes from it.


Oops, it is actually the 14th amendment to the Constitution. Oh you strict cosntructionist, here it is:
Quote:
The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
"
SNIP
I know about that, no big deal, when written, they had no idea it would come to this, back then they were trying to grow the country out of its fledgling state.SNIP


nw30, I'm not sure how you feel about your presence in the USA, but I feel pretty darn good about my existence here. Of course, immigration laws of yesteryear were very different from today, but the static surrounding the propriety of those laws was remarkably similar to what we discuss today. Only we don't say out loud the things uttered back then.

My maternal great-grandparents came to this country by falsifying their names, ages and familial status in order to avoid being rejected under some strange distaste for Norwegians. Their entry into the USA might now be called fraudulent and, therefore, illegal. If you had your wish, millions of people would be deported based on the accident of history. Remember, you cannot pick your parents.

Of course, you are not alone in this view. I'm not suggesting his is good company, but that's not your fault.

I encourage you to call your Senator and suggest a repeal of the 14th Amendment. After all, what's the cost of over 600,000 lives and over 1mm injured? We fought our civil war over this very issue. I think 150 years of internal peace should be honored. Unless you are on the Texas School Board, of course. Wink

It's been a while, but this seems to be the kind of "journalism" and reporters that Fox supports:

By Ian Simpson

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Fox News guest terrorism analyst was arrested on Thursday after a grand jury indicted him on charges of falsely claiming to have been a CIA agent for decades, U.S. prosecutors said.

Wayne Simmons, 62, of Annapolis, Maryland, bogusly portrayed himself as an “Outside Paramilitary Special Operations Officer” for the Central Intelligence Agency from 1973 to 2000, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Virginia’s Eastern District said in a statement.

Simmons allegedly tried to use that claim to get government security clearances and work as a defense contractor. At one point he was deployed overseas as an intelligence adviser to senior military officers, the statement said.

CBS bans advertising for ‘Truth,’ about Dan Rather’s discredited ‘60 Minutes II’ story

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS /

Friday, October 16, 2015, 10:34 AM

CBS has refused to run advertising for “Truth,” the film starring Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford that revisits a painful episode in the network’s past involving a discredited 2004 news story on former President George W. Bush’s military service record.

CBS has denounced the movie, which opens Friday, as a disservice to the public and journalists.

Redford plays Dan Rather in “Truth,” with Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes. Together, they were behind a “60 Minutes II” story that questioned Bush’s Vietnam War-era commitment to service in the Texas Air National Guard. But CBS apologized for the story after documents used were called into question and could not be verified. Mapes and three news executives were fired.

Sony Pictures Classics sought a multi-million dollar ad buy to promote the film on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show,” the “CBS Evening News,” “CBS This Morning” and “60 Minutes,” but was turned down, said Sherri Callan, president of Callan Advertising, the company that places ads for Sony.

Instead, Sony is advertising on ABC, NBC, Fox and several cable networks. CBS, which confirmed the rejection, told Callan it was not comfortable accepting the ads because of inaccuracies and distortions in the movie, and that it would offend longtime CBS News employees.

“It’s astounding how little truth there is in ‘Truth,”’ said Gil Schwartz, longtime chief spokesman for CBS Corp. and a character in the movie. “There are, in fact, too many distortions, evasions and baseless conspiracy theories to enumerate them all. The film tries to turn gross errors of journalism and judgment into acts of heroism and martyrdom.

For the rest~
