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: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
