I have no problem with this happening. Those women choose to come here already pregnant
in 1883, the Chinese Exclusion Act became the first federal law that limited immigration from a particular group
Jesus in heaven you are a silly girl!
Who said I am "anti-American?"
Who said I disapprove of Trump?
Take your NATO and stick it where the sun don't shine. My country isn't a NATO member anyway and never will be if I have anything say about it.
Well, ain't you the biggest joke of the month. Why do you think the Moslems are on the move in the first place? Duh? You get a multiple choice, you lucky girl:
1. They are looking for cooler temperatures.
2. They've heard so many wonderful things about the taste of pork they decided to come to Europe to sample our menu and collect some of our best recipes.
3. The U.S. has destroyed their countries and their homes and they are trying to escape the carnage.
The reason they choose one country over another one is because of the best bet benefits where they don't need to do any work ...... but if the U.S. wasn't wreaking havoc right around the world those people (and many others) would have stayed home. Now they have no home to go to, thanks to shit-fer-brains treachery.
Right not anti-American at all
Why are you on USMB anyway?
I do speak German ..... as well as English, French, Spanish, and my own language. You see, over here we think of it as a good thing to speak other languages. Apparently Americans don't think so. Anyway, "You'd be speaking German if it wasn't for us" is a really stupid thing to say. When Hitler was doing his worse, the Germans told us, "You'll be speaking English if we lose the war". They were right.
U.S. Wars and Hostile Actions: A List
My country existed all through World War II without a single American set foot in my country except for those we rescued from the air and sea.
Thank God and my vote ... my country is not a NATO member and never has been. You can take NATO and shove it.
You mean as an invention? From England.
Any further questions?
I didn't know that but I shouldn't be surprised. Up and into the 1970's the U.S. was still conducting secret experiments with their own black war veterans .... injecting them with syphilis and watching them die. "RACISM" may not be an American invention but they certainly have excelled at employing it to the full.
You haven't shown the slightest bit of evidence to prove that. "With us or against us", is that it?
Why are you asking stupid questions? Do you find relevancy is gobblygook? Well? Do you? Hmmm? Yes, I am talking to you ...

More than 12 million immigrants entered the U.S. through the Ellis Island gateway from 1892 to 1954, with its majestic neighbor, the Statue of Liberty, welcoming them home. (Find out if your family came through Ellis Island by searching the passenger list.)
In honor of the Fourth of July, Parade asked Elizabeth Mitchell, author of the book Liberty’s Torch, an account of the Statue of Liberty’s bumpy history and the life of her creator, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, to reveal some little-known facts about America’s most famous monument.

We take the iconic Statue of Liberty for granted—it’s the perfect backdrop for celebrations of American patriotism. But few people know the fascinating story of how she came to be and how one quirky visionary, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, battled naysayers, engineering impossibilities and a raging storm during transport to put the Lady on her feet in New York harbor.
My book, Liberty’s Torch: The Great Adventure to Build the Statue of Liberty, tells the improbable journey of the statue from one artist’s whimsical inspiration to the feverish labors of supporters from Gustave Eiffel to Mark Twain to the penny donors of old New York tenements.
Here are just 10 of the little-known facts about America’s colossus:
1. The Statue of Liberty was not a gift from France to America.
We have all heard the shorthand that implies that the statue was exchanged government to government. In fact, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a mid-career statue maker, decided to pitch a country he had never visited before on his vision to build a massive lighthouse in the shape of a woman. In his diaries and letters, he described his journey to all corners of America, from Niagara Falls to Washington, D.C., from Chicago to Los Angeles, to explore this exotic land and drum up support.
When no significant government funding emerged, he contrived every possible fundraising strategy himself. He put on spectacles of wonder in Paris, charged visitors admission to watch the statue’s construction in a dusty workshop, sold souvenirs, and petitioned the French government to let him run a national lottery.
In the end it was Joseph Pulitzer, the American newspaper magnate, who helped him finish the job by printing the names of every person who donated even a penny to the cause. This strategy rapidly boosted the circulation of Pulitzer’s newspaper when readers bought a copy simply to see their names in the paper—a brilliant marketing strategy.
The Statue of Liberty was not a gift from France to America. The Statue was originally designed for the Suez Canal in Egypt. Bartholdi did not craft the basic design of Liberty specifically for America. The Egypt deal fell through, so Bartholdi decided to adventure to America to pitch his colossus. The statue was originally supposed to be a lighthouse. It has served its purpose and needs to be put rest. No longer apply to us and never did.
