    When will this crap end?
    When we as a nation draw the line and hold it, and not until then.

    These quotes are credited to Teddy Roosevelt, they say exactly how I feel.
    "The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else...."

    In the first place we should insist that the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equity with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any flag of a nation to which we are hostile. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." Theodore Roosevelt in a letter to the American Defense Society in 1919.
    "Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or to leave the country," he said in a statement to the Kansas City Star in 1918. "English should be the only language taught or used in the public schools."

    To answer your question Five-0 to me it'll stop when people pull their heads out of their a$$ and realize that illegals have no rights in this country, well as far as I'm concerned they don't.

    Did you happen to read to comments? Most were pro-American, but there were others. How can "we as a nation" do something when "we" can't agree on anything?

    The "silent majority" must awaken from its slumber. It must speak loudly whereby its voice can be heard clearly, definitively, and unmistakably. The roar of our hearts must be heard globally, and it must shake the very ground on which we stand. Our presence must be felt where it counts most, at the polls.

    A clear message must be sent: We as American citizens have every right to be proud and protective of our heritage. We have every right to expect that this American nation, and the freedoms guaranteed to its people by our Constitution, which were bought and paid for by the blood of our patriots, are not for sale, cannot be stolen or bartered away, and shall not be jeopardized, compromised, nor held hostage by futile political whim or desire for popularity and correctness.

    Americans are tired of being taken advantage of. Americans are tired of footing the bill for every wrongdoing or evil committed by others. This country is our homeland, and we are entitled, (I must say, compelled), to preserve it and secure it from invasion, whether incursive, subversive, or forcible. No other nation on Earth is pressured to tolerate such rampant injustice and wrongdoing. No other nation on Earth is coerced to surrender its borders and sovereignty in the name of "progress" or "charity". Neither should we be so governed by anyone who would so flagrantly insult the peaceful, stable, competent, hard-working, law-abiding, and common-sense-wielding majority of this nation.

    Residence and citizenship in the United States of America is not a God-given right to ALL people. It is a privilege which was purchased at an ultimate cost. Only those who would EARN such privilege should enjoy it. It is earned through legal and legitimate process, not by simple presence and geographic place of birth.

    You love-fest feelgooders are invited to create your own country elsewhere, where you can actively recruit all comers to partake in your pity parties. This nation was fought over, and has been fought for. It has triumphed by the blood, sacrifice, sweat, and tears of its own people. I, for one have grown ill watching it handed over piece-meal to those who do not deserve its blessings. I have grown ill over seeing it maligned, demeaned, berated, and being made to feel ashamed of itself without cause. It is despicably hypocritical to espouse an enemy of freedom, while pledging allegiance to freedom's champion. The bluffing and the lies must end, now.

    I am proud to be an American. I am proud of this country. I am proud of its history, traditions, and heritage. The friend of our enemies is our enemy as well, regardless of the soil on which they stand. The middle-ground is shrinking, the grey must either fade to white or embolden to black.

    Mark my words: I am not alone. My feelings are shared by an overwhelming majority of the citizens of this country. Although we have been quiet and passive, now is time that we wrestle this nation back from the hands of those who would harm or belittle it. Now is the time for us to stand up and be counted at our voting places. Let no man stand in the gap of indecision. "God bless America" is not a colloquial, it is a PRAYER that our almighty Creator's presence be felt across this great land in a renewal of its Spirit and a revival of its people.

    I have just about reached my boiling point with this crap...political correctness is going to be the death of this country if we arent careful, we need to return to those glorius days of yesteryear....when it was ok to be American and proud of it, when we believed this country was the single greatest on earth, and we stood united against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC. As far as I am concerned, illegal aliens are no different than terrorists...the hijackers of 9-11 looked to cripple us financially, and ask any hospital in CA or TX just how their doing, and you will stare into the face of ruin.
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    Here's some of the backstory

    Stolen Identity of Fernley Woman May Have Prompted I.C.E. Raids
    Oct 3, 2007 12:20 PM

    A puzzling W-2 form prompted last week's raids on eleven McDonald's stores in Reno and Fernley.

    A Fernley woman, whose name was not immediately available, became suspicious when she received a W-2 form early this year that reported more income than she had earned.

    The woman soon discovered someone at the Fernley McDonald's where she used to work had been using her identity.

    Lyon County Sheriff's Sergeant Russ Cadwallader says an initial investigation determined both the employee and a manager of that McDonald's had been using stolen identities.


    Last week, agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency raided the eleven stores, including the one in Fernley and arrested 54 workers suspected of being in this country illegally.

    Eight have been deported to Mexico because of prior immigration violations. Sixteen remain in custody at detention centers and the rest were released for humanitarian reasons and are awaiting an appearance before an immigration judge next week.

    There continues to be fallout over the immigration arrests in Reno, Sparks and Fernley yesterday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officers swept eleven McDonalds Restaurants and its corporate office. At least 56 people were arrested during the raids. ICE Officials say eight people remain jailed and another 16 are in custody or have been deported.

    Business owners up and down Wells Avenue say they've seen their walk-in traffic plummet Friday. And others say there's still a feeling of fear and uncertainty in the Hispanic community.

    At the El Salvadoran restaurant on Wells Avenue, the lunchtime crowd numbered only a few.

    Francisco Gutierrez/Restaurant Owner: "Usually there are 15-20 people here," Francisco Gutierrez said. "Now there are only five people in the restaurant."

    And it was the same story up and down the street, where merchants reported seeing fewer people than ever walk through their doors. They blame Thursday's immigration raids and the fear that lingers. Thursday's raids prompted dozens of phone calls to the Committee to Aid Abused Women, where crisis intervention counselors tried to help clients who are in the country illegally.

    "We told them," Sylvia Gonzalez said. "Stay in the house, don't answer the door and don't answer the phone. We haven't been able to contact 3 or 4 of them. We don't know if someone went and got their kids. We're hoping they're okay."

    Some were left wondering how to tell their children what was happening.

    "My kids are in sports," Elidania Guillen said. "And they took their coach. It's terrible."

    Those who opposed the raids were urging customers to stage boycotts, refusing to show up for work to protest the action. But at Super Burrito, manager Patricia Favela said shutting her doors wasn't the way to handle the controversy.

    "We can do other things like sending letters to our senators," Favela said. "And trying to help in other ways. But closing the business is not a good idea."
    Some businesses, including some landscaping operations and warehouses saw a lot of workers stay home, apparently out of fear they would be arrested.

    Some of those illegal immigrants who were arrested are now separated. The biggest concern addressed from the Hispanic community is the fact that parents who were arrested yesterday are now separated from their children. ICE Officers say Washoe County Social Services were present at the processing center where the illegal workers were being held. None of the minors are in protective custody right now. They are either staying with other family members or have been reunited with their parents.

    " Some of these individuals who have been arrested were the sole care giver of the child then we will release them so that child will not be left alone without supervision." ICE Spokesperson Michael Keegan said.

    The Humanitarian relief applies to 30 of the 54 people who were detained. they are now back with their children, awaiting court dates. an immigration judge will then decide if they will be deported or receive a temporary work permit.

    At a protest outside the McDonalds Headquarters on Friday, News 4 spoke to one woman who was arrested.

    She told us her 11-year-old daughter was hysterical all day long, anxious over the fate of her mother.

    "I'm told the judge will decide whether they gets a work permit or they has to leave voluntarily," the woman said.

    That was a common sentiment. Other people said many women would chose leaving the country with their kids, rather than being separated from them.

    At lease one week prior to the raid, rumors were circulating among the Hispanic community that immigration officials might be in town.

    They all say it's much like the story of the boy who cried wolf. These people heard the rumors, but they didn't believe it could happen in Reno.

    The calls started trickling in around 6 a.m. Thursday morning.

    "People that work at the airport mentioned there were a bunch of agents," Jose Luis Alvarez said. "About 300, and that they come to get people"

    But local Spanish television stations were reporting the possibility of a raid as early as last week. Many didn't believe it could happen in the Biggest Little City.

    Local community leaders could not confirm where the rumors originated. But Spanish news outlets like "La Mega" say calls like Thursday's are not uncommon.

    "They call and say, 'I see a minivan, an excursion, something white, so they call Mega'" Alvarez said.

    And the problem with this is?

    Illegals SHOULD be afraid. They shouldn't be here in the first place.

    And that vet has my support, wholeheartedly. Good job brother.

    Screw those people here illegally. I do not give a rat's ass if they are afraid, get seperated, or what ever. We should hammer the people who hire them and send the ones we catch right the hell back where they came from. I come from a family of immigrants and even had a dual citizenship myself until I joined the Army and renounced my German citizenship to serve here when I was 17. My mother did it the right way, and I am in the process of getting my own wife back here from her home country the correct and LEGAL way. I have been seperated from my wife for almost 2 years because of this, but it is the correct thing to do. I have no sympathy or compassion for the ones here illegally. If I can do it, so can they. Also, learn some God Damned ENGLISH also, that is our language here, not Spanish. I did it, my parents and siblings did it, so can they. There, I vented, I feel better now.

    Watch the video attached to the article, or see Cross' link above. As a cop, I wouldn't take that man to jail. At the very most, I'd write him a ticket and send him on his merry way.

    I have a question for you all, and I am sure you will have an answer.

    What can I do to help fix this mess? I wholeheartedly agree that illegals should be deported immediately after recieving an ass-kicking for screwing up our country, but what the hell can I personally do that will make a difference? I am completely fed up with it all. People protesting for equal rights that do not belong to them, people telling me that I am just a hillbilly because I couldn't give two shits what happens to people here illegally, and anyone else who feels sorry for these scumbags can my !

    Sorry for the rant, but this issue absolutely eats me alive.
