    Yeah, I lost interest in your approach a handful of posts ago. I'm comfortable with the argument and support I've offered, but you keep digging in there with this sort go get the messenger insight and stereotypical nonsense.

    Just thought I'd do you the courtesy. Not putting you on ignore or anything, I'm just not interested in your methodology. It's too far afield and goes nowhere...unless you like circles.

    So...I'll be unsubscribing the thread. Anyone who feels like a headache can talk to you and the kid about it.

    There's your problem, you focus on "approach" and ignore substance. You think OP is racist and ignore its intended message.

    You keep digging in.
    I'm sure you'd feel a lot better if I didn't oppose your ideas.

    But targeting the messenger and stereotypical nonsense won't help you.

    The current banking system has almost nothing to do with capitalism. In fact, it is a socialist/quasi-fascist form of banking. No bank should be allowed to lend money it doesn't have nor should you have to be a bank to lend money.

    Further, when the Federal Reserve creates money out of thin air, it depreciates the value of the money that existed before but not immediately. The people who get that new money first get to spend it with the current purchasing power. It only loses that purchasing power as it finds its way into the economy. Since the U.S. Dollar is an international currency, this effect may not be felt in America right away. It depends on where the bulk of the money is flowing. But regardless of who gets the brunt of the drop in purchasing power, the Fed's creation of fiat currency has the effect of stealing wealth from those who earned it. It is fundamentally corrupt and ought not be allowed.

    NONE of that has ANYTHING to do with the point being made in the opening post. If our country had a banking and monetary system that was 100% just, we'd still be creating problems by enabling people to be lazy by feeding those who will not work with food that someone else had to produce and which was paid for with money that was stolen from those who earned it.

    First of all, I didn't write the opening post.

    Secondly, I couldn't care less what language is printed on a particular product. What I care about is immigrants coming to this country LEGALLY and because they want to be members of this society rather than changing it into the one they left.


    Oh, you poor, poor dear! Did you sprain your finger? Would you like some ice for it? How about some cocoa?
    You're a fool.

    It isn't about pressing buttons. It's about preserving the culture that made these people want to come here in the first place.

    Yeah, I hate that too.
    Spoiler
    I hate you.

    Welcome to my ignore list.

    Good-bye.

    That's right. Love and care for your family (Eph. 5:25–33). This isn't rocket science (Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10).

    It is not the role of government to care for you or your family (Ex 20:15). That is your husband's job (Duties of, toward wife: love (Eph. 5:25–33), live with for life (Matt. 19:3–9), be faithful to (Mal. 2:14, 15), be satisfied with (Prov. 5:18, 19),... honor (1 Pet 3:7), confer with (Gen. 31:4–16), provide for (1 Tim 5:8)...
