The USA was built by many different people from many different cultures, who all came together as one, "E Pluribus Unum."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_pluribus_unum

And our multiculturalism is a part of our strength here in the USA.

And immigration is a great part of what America is all about.

The American Dream is when that little kid in Sicily dreams of opening a restaurant in New York City, and then grows up and achieves his dream.

The USA was built on multiculturalism, with the knowledge that all of us are created equal by God our creator with unalienable rights.

Salute,

Tony V.

We’ve been successfully ahead of most western countries in admitting and incorporating immigrants from the rest of the world for about half a century now. The GOP is recidivist and drags the nation backwards where and when it can, but our better angels and the long arc of history have been and continue to carry us to better and better places as a universally human country. We as a result cannot send our worst and least redeemable to Australia as Britain continues to do, but the are retarded by their even more deeply entrenched class system and provincial xenophobia so we integrate better than the Brits. Ghettoization, demonization, and low profile apartheid is what most directly feeds radicalization. Fairness, opportunity, inclusion, and a vital public sphere lead to safety, resilience, and growth.

If you are against blowing people up, be against blowing people up - a bombs and hatefulness problem. Shootings are about the same if you swap out guns for bombs. Hatefulness roots in fear and vengeance, the cancer and the forest fire of the mind.

This is values and immigration colloquium is going so well we haven’t even gotten to the adult entertainers at the no tell motel.

Righty whities? $130K doesn’t buy as much silence as it used to. Trump’s hush money guy may not be one of the best people.

GOP just got a bit lighter as the Protestant work ethic, raising a family crowd just departed en mass.

Immigrants seem to segregate/apartheid themselves on purpose.
Most of them don't seem to want to integrate, but rather set up their homelands/cultures in their new abodes...and not have much to do with anyone outside of them.

Middle Eastern men from afar dressed in business attire blew up NYC 9/11.
Surprising given America's "successfully admitting and incorporating immigrants from the rest of the world for about half a century now."
and its "fairness, opportunity, inclusion, and a vital public sphere".

Gran Torino showed it all about right.
"We're moving in and taking over, so you move out".

A lawyer for President Trump orchestrated a $130,000 payment to a pornographic-film actress in October 2016 to prevent her from going public with claims of a consensual sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The reported payment came shortly before the presidential election and as the actress, Stephanie Clifford, 38, was discussing sharing her account with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and the online magazine Slate, according to interviews, notes and text messages reviewed by The New York Times.

Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, said on Friday that in a series of interviews with Ms. Clifford in August and October 2016, she told him she had an affair with Mr. Trump after meeting him at a 2006 celebrity golf tournament. She told him that Michael D. Cohen, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, had agreed during the presidential campaign to pay her the $130,000 if she kept the relationship secret, Mr. Weisberg said, adding that Ms. Clifford had told him she was tempted to go public because the lawyer was late in making the payment and she feared he might back out of their agreement.

We do not need a wall on the border with Canada, and we do not need a wall on the border with Mexico. We need to have a "Good Neighbor" policy with our good Christian neighbors here in the Western Hemisphere.
 
Salute,

Have to tell you, Tony, your perpetual insistence on "good Christian" as the value you cherish makes this non-Christian pretty wary of your motives.

None of the perpetrators on 9/11 were from Mexico, or from Canada. None of the perpetrators on 9/11 were Christian. And none of the suicide bombers, etc, have been Christians. Christians are not a source of terrorism in this world.

a) none of them were from India, Japan, Brazil, Mongolia, or a couple hundred countries, either.

None of them was Hindi, Buddhist, Jainist, Pagan, Wiccan, Jedi, Pastafarian, Jewish, or a couple dozen other religions, either.

Christians are a source of terrorism in this world, however. (So are members of most other major religions.

Your denial of recent history is akin to Kid's and RSW's denial of the racism, Tony.  Some Christians commit terrorist acts.

The perpetrator of the Mother Emanuel shooting wasn't Muslim, tony.

True. And there was the case of the Oklahoma bombing, the Columbine shooting, and the Sandy Hook school shooting, etc, and more recently the Vegas shooting, etc. But they were not from Mexico and from Canada, and they were not real Christians. Christians show love for their neighbors.

Salute,

Tony V.

And using that reasoning, I would tell you that the people who did the 9/11 attacks were not real Muslims, either.

And what do you think the drug cartels are? Happy, healthy family businesses?
