    posted a message on Obama administration to stop deporting some young illegal immigrants

    Washington (CNN)
    -- In an election-year policy change, the Obama administration said Friday it will stop deporting young illegal immigrants who entered the United States as children if they meet certain requirements.

    The shift on the politically volatile issue of immigration policy prompted immediate praise from Latino leaders who have criticized Congress and the White House for inaction, while Republicans reacted with outrage that the move amounts to amnesty -- a negative buzz word among conservatives.

    Those who might benefit from the change expressed joy and relief.

    Pedro Ramirez, a student who has campaigned for such a move, said he was "definitely speechless," then added: "It's great news."

    Joe Arpaio asks 'why now' to immigration

    In a Rose Garden address Friday afternoon, President Obama said the changes would make immigration policy "more fair, more efficient and more just."

    "It makes no sense to expel talented young people who are for all intents and purposes, Americans," Obama said.

    "The notion that in some ways we would treat them as expendable makes no sense. If there is a young person here who has grown up here and wants to contribute to this society, wants to maybe start a business that will create jobs for other folks who are looking for work, that's the right thing to do," he said.

    Under the new policy, people younger than 30 who came to the United States before the age of 16, pose no criminal or security threat, and were successful students or served in the military can get a two-year deferral from deportation, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

    Come on. This is a huge contradiction to the laws. Just because they may pose no "criminal or security threat" doesn't mean they should stay. THEY'RE HERE ILLEGALLY. I don't see how this is okay, they came here illegally, whether they were aware of it or not. They shouldn't be allowed to stay.

    posted a message on Adopt-A-Highway denies KKK
    Quote from turek279

    The point is, racism does not belong in the world and yet it still does. Curses.

    It will never go away.

    Am I racist? In a way yes. I am racist against those who steal our jobs, against those who mooch off of our hard work. Hell, when I went to my highschool (in which I, a Caucasian male, was the minority) I saw at LEAST 5-10 pregnant Mexican/Hispanic/Spanish/whatever females pregnant each year. And MAYBE 1 or 2 Caucasian females pregnant. It shows how easy it is for them to raise a family because of benefits. Nice huh? You people wonder why there's racism. When the world realizes that the people that AREN'T WORKING/Not trying to get a job should get free money and get free medicare and free everything, then maybe they will start working for their stuff. Then maybe racism will go down A LITTLE.

    But sadly, racism will never go away. As long as there are the ghetto people to give a bad name to that certain group of people, there will still be racism. IMO.

    Quote from Toastedspikes

    Read again, people are concerned with the publicity the KKK would be getting, not the cleaning up roads part. People are concerned with the KKK logo that will be put up on a public highway.
    And yes, if the Black Panthers wanted to do the same, it would be a different story, probably because they, as an organisation, do not claim black supremacy over other skin colours, and were a militant communist black pride since degraded into a collection of grassroots community organisations, criminal gangs, civil rights organisations and Maoists. But I'm nitpicking and I get the grumpiness over double standards on racism.

    Everybody knows about the KKK already so what would the harm be? And they can put restrictions on them, no offensive logos/slogans/sayings on the signs on the highway.

    As for the Black Panthers, they don't claim black supremacy, you're right. But they do go by the saying "Black power" which is ridiculous because that's just separating themselves even more. But anyway, the Black Panthers were just as violent as the KKK so I don't see the difference between the two other than they both support their own race and the BP would get support in whatever they wanted to do because of today's society and their stupidity.

    posted a message on Why Gays should be allowed to marry
    I'm all for gay marriage. Why? They're human, they're the same as everyone else. Who cares about their personal life? It's called a personal life for a reason. I don't see the reasoning behind the whole gay marriage fiasco, I mean America is all about freedom right? So why can't they have freedom too? Just because they're attracted to their own gender? So? What's the big deal?

    This server sucks. The_Ratard hit me through the wall in the PRIVATE furnace area where you're supposed to go to not get hurt and get your stuff stolen, and I died (he had a fire aspect sword) and I actually think Redxphos hit me as well because I saw his name on the other side of me. But they killed me and when I went back to get my stuff in the PRIVATE FURNACE ROOM it wasn't there. They both stole my stuff (complete diamond armor, diamond pick, 15 gold ingots, 1 diamond, and some other small stuff). It's ridiculous that you have little kids like this as guards and not to mention I think Ratard applied for guard or something. You shouldn't have an exploiting **** as a guard. Same with Red. He hit me through the wall as well. You should really turn PVP off in the private furnace area.

    Long story short: Ratard and Redxphos glitched somehow and hit me through the soul sand wall in the private furnace room and stole my stuff.

    Oh and also - Red claimed he was in the Free area the whole time which is bull because I saw his name and as I was walking back I watched him disappear from the area as I was asking him why he didn't help me and he said "I didnt see nothing".... -__-
