You don't understand its not that it happens, its that its happening in greater and greater numbers.....

Just like liberals looking for 2nd amendment changes ... how do you not understand this, how can be so ignorant.

If it we made a deal to get rid of all anchor babies, and illegal immigrants, and Bobby had to go, Bobby would agree to go.

He loves America .. you on the other hand can't think your way out of a paper bag.

>we need to bring in more refugees because we have a birthrate crisis

if the climate change panickers are going to be taken seriously, they can't simultaneously invite the entire third world while screaming about the increased carbon footprint of many more people entering into the western lifestyle.

The only solution for those who wish to protect the earth from more damage is to refuse mass thrid-world immigrantion.

Also, stop feeding the third-world and propping up these unsustainable births per capita rates in ME/NA/the rest of Africa. The resources which go into producing, shipping, and delivering these foodstuffs to an entire continent of people who can't or won't produce it on their own is unsustainable.

because we're being hustled. Leftists and their importees don't give a flying fug about rights; they have no history or experience with them. An intransigent population (1st and 2nd amendment supporters in particular) is being replaced with a more pliant, alien, one, by design.

Fat Nixon pushes this scam to wealthy chinese and russians at his properties.

www.thedailybeast.com

"While the president rails against children of undocumented immigrants, wealthy Russians rent his condos"at huge costs"so they can have American kids.

"Woohoo! Got dual citizenship for my daughter!" he wrote on Instagram.

American citizenship for the newborn girl was the goal of Kuzmin and his Instagram-celebrity wife, who sought the help of birth-tourism services in Florida for the arrival of their first child. They are among the estimated hundreds of Russian parents who flock to the U.S. annually for warm weather, excellent medical care, and, more importantly, birthright American citizenship.

And many, like Kuzmin and his wife, stay at President Donald Trump's properties in Florida. "

"The only solution for those who wish to protect the earth from more damage is to refuse mass thrid-world immigrantion."

You honestly think the Earth cares where on the planet they live. To pretend that the Earth's problems are due to third world immigration is totally idiotic. Rich tourists visiting third world countries cause far more pollution than the other way around.

"because we're being hustled. Leftists and their importees don't give a flying fug about rights; they have no history or experience with them."

Aother completely idiotic statement, How do you figure we have no history of sticking up for rights, it was the left campaigning for Civil Rights, to end foreign wars, etc. while you polished your gun. When the 2nd Amendment is more important than the 1st Amendment then you know you are wrong headed.

What you're probably seeing is real scientists who have a mind for more than just money.

That's why you lie so easily. You're not at all interested in accuracy or rigor, just getting the most for you.

#23 | Posted by jpw at 2020-01-24 08:09 AM

"You honestly think the Earth cares where on the planet they live."

His point is that the carbon footprint of Americans is much larger than those of most third world countries.

#24 | Posted by Hagbard_Celine at 2020-01-24 08:47 AM

Lol... you righties are such gullible idiots.

Trump is just trying to corner the market. Trump gets rich foreigners US citizenship through real estate deals (through investment). He is just trying to get rid of the competition so that more people are funneled to his scams (and their money is funneled into his pockets).

#25 | Posted by gtbritishskull at 2020-01-24 09:06 AM

The biggest offenders for "birth tourism" is the Chinese and the Russians. Just what we need, individuals born here with all the rights of citizenship, yet who are raised in belligerent countries with no loyalty or allegiance to this country what so ever. I thought we have the Democrats to fill that role.

No, those kinds of people are called Capitalists.
You love them.
They make you money as an investor.

#29 | Posted by redlightrobot Before you get too enamored with socialized medicine, live under that system for a while. There are serious shortcomings in availability, time waiting for services and new drugs and treatments are ignored by state run health care.

#30 you lived under socialized medicine, or just telling stories?

#31 | Posted by snoofy at 2020-01-25 09:35 PM

"otherwise you are also a capitalist."

Cashing a a 401(k) check doesn't make you a capitalist any more than cashing a Social Security check makes you a socialist, Docnjo.

Hate the game, not the player! :P

#32 | Posted by snoofy at 2020-01-25 09:37 PM

#30 Much like the US private health system. But the US system costs almost twice as much for worse outcomes.
Worse is having healthcare held hostage by insurance companies and employers.At least US socialist healthcare, VA, Medicare and Medicaid avoid that.
Early access to new drugs like Vioxx didnt go well either.

#31 | Posted by snoofy I was in the Army for 22 years, used the VA for the last 10. Best advice, don't go to the VA with anything new. I have never seen the same doctor twice in the VA. I was almost killed by a bad diagnosis.

#34 | Posted by docnjo at 2020-01-25 11:28 PM

"I was almost killed by a bad diagnosis."

Medical error is a pretty big reason people die.
Some of those errors are mitigated in a single payer system; things like drug interactions.

Move to San Antonio. Their VA facilites are top notch. I always see the same doctors with the exception of my PCP. But that position is just a figurehead. All the PCP does is listen to what your ailment is and send you on to a specialist.

Also, I presume you go to Bonham if you still live in D. I've heard Bonham is a horrible VA center. Dallas is as well. In fact, it's Dallas' VA hospital that keeps me from moving back up there to be closer to my granddaughters.

I've heard they are going to build a new facility in Plano. Seeing as to how affluent Plano is, I have hopes it is a good one. If it is, I'll make the move and my life will have come full circle. I was born and raised in Plano and if I move back, I'll die there.

#35 | Posted by snoofy, No I had a minor stroke, the doctor surmised in about 30 seconds I had Parkinson's and put me on a drug that made me quite ill. The appointment to see a neurologist took over a year.

The VA has to send you to a doctor outside the VA system if it takes more than a month to see him. My opthamologist is outside the VA system because the VA couldn't see me for three months.
