    Screw em !!

    I worked at a pizza place once where the manager was from venezuela and one of the drivers was from Iran. I would walk in from a delivery and they would be standing there talking about how much better there homelands were than the US. Complaining about politics and the like. So one day, I asked so why the hell are you here? And one of them just goes, "I'm just here to make money man, I can make much more here than in Venezuela" So that's the only reason your even here then? I asked. "Yeah".

    I really wish we had never put out that message: send us your poor huddled masses, or whatever it says exactly. Because now we're a country full of hateful immigrants who are just using us. I think it's time to start deporting immigrants who voice negative opinions about the USA. :fu2: F. you immigrants!!

    Just as I thought while reading your thoughts in the bilingualism thread, you just hate immigrants!!! :rolleyes:

    Anyway, welcome to the board.

    I hate it when people complain about being here--in the U.S. or a specific state/town/city. I can relate to that one. Whenever I hear people talking about how much they hate my town I tell them to get the fuck out. :D

    As for deporting anyone for voicing negative opinions about the USA, well, that just wouldn't be American.

    I agree. I'd push them further, why do you think you can make more money here? Because this country is 100 times better than your shithole homes. Thats why you came here. If you hate it soo much, no one is freakin holding you here. What do you think would happen to them if they said these things in Iran? No more tongue for starters. Slow painful death for enders.

    Just reiterate to them these sentiments and see where they go from there.

    Okay, I was going a little overboard when I stated they should be deported for voicing negative opinions. But your right, I do hate immigrants who talk smack about America....But how should we deal with it?

    I share our concerns and frustration. However, I don't know that you do deal with it.

    I mean one of our founding priciples is free speech and the right to criticize the government. Now, if they begin seditionist speaches, treasonous (sp) speaches then we have another issue all together.

    I can't stand when someone not of our country disses our way of life, but on the other hand we can't dictate our beliefs selectively. Goes with the territory of living in a free democracy. Damn it :)

    Well, it might be scant comfort in the grand scheme of things, but Americans always have the option of " voting with their feet". Or their dollars. When somebody badmouths our country, sinking his fangs into the hand that feeds him, we can refuse to support his efforts with our dirty American money. That can be a painful experience, as the Chixie Dicks are learning.

    I'd bet more 'citizens' bad-talk the USA than immigrants.

    (shrug).

    Liberals, off hand, tend to hate everything ABOUT america - how and why the country was founded, at least.

    How do you deal with anyone who says something you disagree with?

    True, money makes a difference....That's why I'm hoping that the NEW prop 187 goes through here in CA. Kicking illegals off of welfare will cause alot of them to leave and/or not come here. True, some of them will criticize more than ever, but there will be less of them to do it!!

    -Not if they are all allowed drivers licenses and unrestricted entrance into the country.

    Then you have hundreds of thousands on the street that the socialist buttheads will want more government spending in other social programs for.

    Then, they will blame a homeless problem on republican economic policy (arnold) and shoot our debt into orbit again.
