I would agree with that! Why be mad at someone for doing their job. That's like being mad at the plumber for fixing your toilet. If they are illegal, put them on the next cargo ship back to their land of origin. Hell put them in a conex, the trip can't take that long! STOP SPENDING TAX MONEY ON ILLEGALS!

I always thought fear led to respect. In my house I instill fear into my children, thus molding their behavior, and eventually leading to respect. That is what happened to me. I think my children respect me to begin with, but fear is fun!

Who cares if they like us OR NOT? Like President Reagan said, "It doesn't make any difference if I know the head of another country. What does make a difference is they know who we are."

Ultimately, I think the US is hated both from abroad and internally because of envy. As I've gotten older, I've realized just how powerful envy is and what an important motivator it is to socialists and other "wealth re-distributionists". When one cuts through the crap...envy is often at the root of alot of both legal and illegal crime, IMO. Kevin

I could care less if Iraq or Iran likes us but I think allies like Canada deserve a little more from us. The 35 days in jail for crossing the border to buy gas is nonsense. He should have got a stern, severe lecture and sent on his way. From the BBC article: "Osama Bin Laden is apparently still out there, as elusive as ever, but President Bush seems eager to move on to new enemies. Saddam Hussein has become the focus of American attention - while Washington seems to neglect the Arab-Israel conflict. " I agree.

Let's try this again- who gives a damn who likes us. I myself don't give a shit. They're like a bunch of jealous, whiney ass, ungrateful kids. To hell with 'em!!!! And yes, fear us if you don't respect us.

Bush says that they hate us because we think we are free, or is it cute,I never can remember. Our bashers are pretty vocal about why they hate us. Here is a column that pretty much sums up what I read in foreign papers. [url]http://www.sobran.com/columns/021212.shtml[/url]

As long as we don't become too weak, I could care less who hates us. I don't have that manyy friends, and that keeps me from spending all my money...Oh, wait a second, maybe that is what the government should do, only support friends of the US.

They hate us for one reason: [size=6]JEALOUSY[/size=6] We've been able to do in 200 years what they have been unable to do in thousands of years, and we've done it fifty times better than they ever could have hoped to do. I say FUCK 'em. [b]Edited to add:[/b] Sorry, Spud. Didn't mean to steal your thunder there....

I totally agree. I never understood this until I worked my ass off in and out of college. I started to get a pay check and notice two things, too much money was coming out of my pay check and too many people are on welfare. Then on the streets I would get hasseled about not helping out others. I thought to myself, am I any smarter than anyone else? Any more creative? I like to tell myself "yes", but in reality, "no". The only thing that seperates me and the poor other guy is the willingness to work and get out there. To make a long story short, I think it is envy is what makes socialism popular in a lot of countries. Having people who have more is bad since not everyone can have a lot or any. Making all people equally poor is the goal of socialism.
