    never really agreed with this statement much and with the obama dictatorship I think it's pure BS.

    Diversity is like socialism. It sounds good but every time it's been tried it's failed.

    Diversity is a good thing. We were known as the melting pot. And all segments of our society worked to get ahead. Then there came a time that the government came into play and proposed to make the field more "fair."

    That hasn't turned out so well. When immgrants came with nothing but was in their suitcase and on their backs, they didn' look to the government for handouts, they worked like the devil to put food on the table and became a success because the were expected to achieve.

    But when the governement picks winners and losers, we lost our identity as achievers and became the enabling state of losers and winners. The losers continue to be losers because the liberals never gave them the chance to really achieve, but gave them excuses instead.

    I find that time is perceived as fairly constant if I remain in the same geographic location and my speed is relatively unchanged.

    We are "melting" trash metals in with American gold if ya ask me.... Imigrants used to want to assymilate, now they just want a hand out and a leg up.

    There used to be a time when you had to prove you could support yourself before you could imigrate here. Now we advertise food stamps in Mexico...!

    Diversity is perversity now.... fuck it, I dont want it anymore!
