All right, Time out. Dont think i am trying to attack you. I am only trying to itemize your argument, which is sort of tending towards preaching
Many American's think the laws that allow you to do that are wrong.
What do you mean many. how many of them do you know. do you have any statistics. Point is what made you think many americans feel that way. Or is it just based on the recent posts by some ranchers that you came to this conclusion. I presume you are you talking about the H1B visa to Green card route.
Do you only support laws that benefit you personally?
well duh !! do you really expect some one to support a law such as this, when the person is trying his best to become a resident of US in the proper way. It would kind of rub you the wrong way when you are talking about Illegal Residency to legalization of it, which might be where this is heading.
You obviously aspire to a green card because your home country holds no allure for you.
How did you arrive to this conclusion. Assuming that is even true what has that got to do with what is being discussed (Illegal Aliens getting Drivers License).
In a sense your country has failed to meet your expectations.
Same as above. It can be argued that in many senses that is not true.
Try to leave that mindset (which is the root cause of that failure) behind you.
Americans like the gentleman quoted in the previous post are the reason why America is America.
I dont think so. When you say America is America, what do you mean. Are you saying that in the sense that it is the greatest country in the world, most powerful conuntry in the world, one of the richest countries in the world. If your argument is in that sense, then all i have to say is there is no ONE reason why US is what it is. Not the kind heartedness of people that you are trying to imply, and at the same time not the close the doors kind of attitude some people have. Point is dont make it sound too trivial, just because you think it helps your argument. America is what it is for many reasons not the one you are trying to imply.
If you want to be an American aspire to be a good one
Ah, I thought thats what he is trying to do. Besides, define good. Good to you might not be good to him or others. Binladen might be good to some, (his wife / kids maybe) that doesnt mean he is good to everybody else. Point is GOOD is very subjective and we have to wait for Map and Joe's Moral Absolutes thread to start for GOOD to have a proper defnition
Disclaimers : 1) No offence, None of the above posters are being compared to Binladen though and
2) This is not a personal Attack and yes i have read the fallacies document many times. Infact it is my Bible now a days
