Carry on. last post before thread gets deleted wins.


I've found that nothing kills a thread like a good Finnish poem.

And so she almost stops her breathing
like the wind that has to draw breath immediately
all the more violently.
And so she becomes for a moment smaller than any garment
she might be wearing now.
Everything in this world into which there is only one way to arrive,

but so many ways to leave,
that it makes us different people.
A public place, this world, and one doesn't always know

whether this is what is called a room, and whether this room
is growing darker, by gusts.

Paavo Haavikko (b. 1931)

I will expand upon my earlier rant later, but right now I'm off to see a legal immigrant by the name of Sting and Elvis Costello at the Holly Bowl... Cheers! Bull


Ah, the 80's are calling.

Sting, that Englishman, that alien, that legal alien?

As a later edit based on so many different posts that occurred in the time it took to generate my post here, it's apparent that this is a topic wants some stage.

About a month ago, thieves stole brass fixtures from a tank in an industrial site, resulting in a toluene spill to San Francisco Bay. That's a real problem, that requires some real thinking. Thieves come in all different colors; there are more white thieves than other colors because there are more white folks. I think that solutions involve looking at the people who buy scrap metal without asking any questions--they are enabling the thievery.

To jump from a problem, to a multiple page screed about illegal aliens, as stevenbard does, is simply bigotry. To blame all problems on a single group, without evidence, and with such irrational anger, demeans your opinion and your ability to think clearly before all.

Statistics aren't bigotry. We have laws and they are being broken. Why don't we just open our borders to all comers. It will be a great party for a couple of years and then all hell will break loose.

My wife is a Mexican imigrant which makes my kids also Mexican. It is easy to call someone a bigot without the facts, but the truth will prevail over pathetic ignorance. Secondly I personally have alot to loose if illegals were removed.

I just accept the fact that if this madness continues, America will fail.
