    Hmm. Is it an insult to suggest that your rhetoric lacked critical thought and was a mere recital of talking points volleyed across anti-liberal media?

    Or was your statement, in fact, a regurgitation of propaganda? Come on now. Are you really that taken aback by a commonly used metaphor that you would conclude the purveyor of said metaphor was angry.

    Yes, it is.
    You can't even name a source I'd have used.
    Thus it bespeaks anger leading to insult & dishonesty.
    Crimin....now I got suckered into bickering about this.
    That's rather amusing.

    Lol, it wasn't a specific source it was a "General trend."

    I am sure you can mix metaphors a little better than that.

    That you read?

    It is varied, I know that you do a lot of NPR, you cite from various media sources. I am not accusing you of only viewing a particular type of media. I am accusing you of regurgitating propaganda from anti-liberal ones.

    Which ones?

    Something for you to consider....
    I'm not addressing your "regurgitating" left wing views.
    Your views are what they are, & no doubt have complex origins.
    Extending the same courtesy to others would help you get along.

    I already told you, it is just a general trend among all of them.

    Which view is left wing?

    This whole side discussion has been immaterial to the point. I assumed that was your aim.

    "Illegal alien" is defined in 8 US Code ยง1365(b), which is the definition I use.

    So I haven't seen where anyone has refuted any of the facts cited in the OP. If anyone has done so, please repeat.

    I didn't even read all of it.
    - It was long...dang long.
    - It was dripping in vitriol.
    - It ended with what looked like a poem.
    So I just went with the discussion which ensued.

    Free advice....
    - Avoid walls of text.
    - Be civil towards those who might disagree.
    - Convey a desire to converse.

    As far as I know the Founders did not violate any laws by arriving on these shores now known as the US.

    So what if they are true? That is also immaterrial to any point.

    Perhaps you've watched a courtroom drama? Both siides
    present their chosen set of facts and interpretations.

    All you have done is present a highly biased screed, and now
    you are positioning to claim a win.

    We see the same thing from creationists. Complete with gish.

    If you have convinced yourself of your correctness and
    victory, groovy. You win; / thread.

    I begs to differ. It was sloshing with vitriol.
