[QUOTE="Diamondback 2/2, post: 453435, member: 157"] The biggest problem I see is people want to tell others how to live. What works in California, doesn't work in Texas. What works in North Texas doesn'twork in South Texas, etc. There is a place in Big Bend called Terlingua (ghost town) that people moved back into. It's pretty much with out law enforcement except for the occasional deputy or trooper. But they pretty much do what they want, and have somewhat developed their own system to deal with things. No that would never work in a place like San Antonio, but it work for the people out in Terlingua. I don't like Austin telling people what to do or how we should think. I sure as hell don't like Washington DC telling me how to live or think. Hell I fucking hate home owners association. But I do understand the purpose and need for them. But it's when people are stupid and stop being concerned with property values and start fucking with people that shit gets fucked up. I grew up in Texas, working and living with Mexican nationals. My wife's family is from Mexico, I spent my childhood running around in Mexico. Never needed a passport, just a few bucks and my ID. I fucking hate how things have gotten fucked up now, and if wasn't for the stupid drug laws aND fucking terrorist, I would be for open borders with Mexico and Canada. But at this point in time we can't have that. I just wish there was away to put some of that responsibility back to the local governments that have to interact cross border. The people that scream about Mexicans taking jobs are full of shit. They do the work 99% of America won't do. They get paid shit, and they live here in poverty, normally send money home to support their impoverished family. Make it easier for them to do that legally and quit bitchin about it. If they break laws punish them, like anyone else. Send them packing, etc. But for fuck sake, stop with the crybaby bullshit about Mexicans. I don't know if it's truly racism, or ignorance of the people, fear of what you don't know, or just people bitchin to bitch. But whatever it is, people need to stop and think before running their opinionated mouths about shit they have no true understanding of or any business discussing. I hate the wall idea, I hate the mass deportation ideas, I hate the idea of families being torn apart over stupidity coming out of Washington DC. Yes we need border security right now, yes we need to deport the criminals and yes we need vetting and need to know who is here and why. But it ain't that damn hard, and we need to use a little common sense and less "fuck it burn it down" rhetoric. My $.02 [/QUOTE]
