What really constitutes a country?

January 25, 2013

Yesterday on the article about Republicans doing their soul searching I notice a comment about how they (republicans) shipped our jobs over seas. This made me wonder about why some Liberals argue for amnesty for immigrants. Certainly these people are here for a better way of life than their former country could offer but aren't they also occupying jobs that those of us here could be doing? Bush made a comment about the immigrants doing the jobs that americans aren't willing to do but is that really so? Are we natural born citizens above such work or are we not willing to do it so cheaply?
What really constitutes as a border? Race, Religion, Culture? Do we even really have borders today? Our military seems to be under the impression that the world is their playground; Is prudent? and for who? Did the Republicans really ship our jobs off or are we just not willing to work anymore? What really constitutes a country?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
