From CNN.com:

"Would you illegally cross a border if that was the only way to make a better life for your family?"
Yes - 75% 17,566 votes
No - 25% 5,732 votes

What a loaded and slanted question!

Illegal immigration is NOT the "only way" to make a better life for one's family. What about LEGAL immigration? What about banding together to oppose the corrupt gov't in your OWN country - instead of corrupting OURS?

If your family was starving to death, would you STEAL food?


Stupid question.

Stupid question.

Yes! And then I'd march in the streets to change the laws to allow me to steal whenever and wherever *I* think *I* NEED too.

These assholes need to learn that illegally crossing the border is not the ONLY way to better your life.

Get an education, work hard, FILE FOR LEGAL CITIZENSHIP are other ways to better your life.

I would just sit a home and watch TV. Once a month I might take a public bus downtown to demand my food stamps. Then I wouldn't have to steal to feed my family. It's all really very racist, if you think about it.

From CNN.com, the last bastion of objectivity in journalism..............

Two words, Mac: "From orbit."

BTW, thanks for the heads-up.

I dunno; this might be a good model for the gun rights crowd to follow. At the end of the day, I'm [usually] just a results-oriented mother fucker.

+1.

It's not technically stealing if the .gov legally steals it for you first, and then turns around and *gives* it to you.

If you fart too hard and fudge your undies, would you illegally take some from a homeless person you found sleeping on the sidewalk?

Makes about as much sense.

CNN didn't earn the moniker "Communist News Network" for nothing.

Some recent poll questions that CNN chose NOT to ask:

"Would you build a wall on the southern border if that was the only way to stop another 9-11 attack in America?"

"Would you strengthen current immigration laws if that was the only way to stop terrorists from getting into the country?"

"Would you go after and punish employers of illegal immigrants if that was the only way to raise wages for low-income American citizens?"

"Would you deport illegal aliens if that was the only way to ensure a better life for your children?"

"Would you illegally wiretap an international phone call if that was the only way to stop a suitcase nuclear bomb attack in America?"

If CNN ever wants their face/legitimacy restored, I say they hire you as their "Counterpoint" columnist.

I thought the same thing -totally slanted question. Nice unbiased journalism there CNN.

Would you ultimately undermine the security of another soveriegn nation and bleed it dry thereby turning it into another 3rd world shithole just like the one you left -or would you be a racist prejudicial bigot white peice of shit and oppose it?

No wonder alot of people's minds are so poisoned with bullshit when our news sources are spewing this crap.
