Amerca began our "Attrition Programs" in January 2008, the E-verify Law, and the I.C.E. Deportation/Incarceration Programs, of good, hard working Christian Immigrants, many thousands of whom were Parents of our own "Legal Citizen Children".
January 2008 was also the start of "The Great Recession", "The Foreclosure Crisis.". and "America's new Balloning National Deficit".
It is all related, and No Co-incidence.
"America is great because it is good, when it ceases to be good, it ceases to be great."Alex De Tocqueville, a very wise 1840's French Historian.
This great Nation of Immigrants was built oon Far Bretter Principles, and Values than to rip apart good Christian Families, and to Deport/Dump "Human Beings" at the Harsh U.S. Mexico Border into a known "Drug War" with nothing, not even water, to be killed, or to Die of the elements, as I.C.E. has done to Hundreds of Thousands since January 2008!
Over Forty-Two Thousand Hispanic Human Beings now lay Dead at the I.C.E. Deportation/Dumping Grounds.
Over Five Thousand Hispanic Children are now in U.S. Foster Care.Over Thirteen Thousand Hispanic Immigrants have been Incarcerated for years with out even charges.
Over One Hundred non-Criminal Immigrants have Died in U.S. Custody.
"Are we losing our Humanity?"
Hell are we even "Human"?
This is our I.C.E.'d Economy, and "I.C.E Put the Car in the Ditch."

Humanity starts at home- no? How about kicking off the Project with understanding why men impregnate and then leave women to raise the child (oops children) on their own- setting them up for a lifetime of poverty. That ought to get the creative juices flowing- no?
Yep, a hugfest to blame Whitey for everything bad. Except abortion and economic slavery. Thats very humane.
"BEFORE AMERICANS DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THEIR TV BILLS ANY LONGER !!!"
Yes, because paying for TV is very important. Without it, how can you get your Fox News talking points to parrot?
(seriously, Leon is worried about TELEVISION bills?)
Poor Leon a man without a world.Poor
LOL....Mr. Lester's corn-rows had nothing to do with my comment. His column espousing "humanity", "ethics", and "integrity" did however.
How many tens of thousands of College and University "Q & A" discussions have occurred all across America since the 1960's on the Civil Rights Movement ????
The "Liberal Agenda's" never change...Native-American Rights, Hispanic (aka Illegal Alien Amnesty) Rights, Black-American Rights, Japanese-American Rights. Gay/Lesbian/Transgender/Transsexual/Crossdresser (did I leave anyone out) Rights....oh, and let's not forget the "Holocaust" (and how can we with Hollywood coming out with a Holocaust Movie every year)......ENUF ALREADY....TIME TO MOVE ON...THE QUESTIONS HAVE ALL BEEN ANSWERED A HUNDRED...NO MAKE THAT TEN THOUSAND TIMES. THE PERPS ARE ALL DEAD AND BURIED.............LET'S GIVE IT A REST AND TRY AND BRING OUR DEFICIT DOWN BEFORE AMERICANS DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THEIR TV BILLS ANY LONGER !!!
Right on chatman! Couldn't be said better.
“Are we losing our humanity?” ultimately seeks to make humanities more relevant and immediate, providing new and multiple ways for folks to “talk, listen, and connect.”
Oh. So it's just a promo for an Arts festival.
Why didn't you just say so?
Go ahead Willie, keep distorting the truth eventually you will connect personal responsibility with racism like all the liberal/progressives do, especially BSNBC.
If you believe that taxes must be raised to stop the huge deficits then fine. I'm ready to pay my share of taxes EQUALLY along with everyone else. Eliminate ALL the Bush Tax Cuts.
Social programs? Is that the liberal term for "Welfare" programs? You mean the welfare programs that make permanent economic slaves of our citizens, the welfare programs that lead to generational stagnation of people's will to succeed. Decades of generational dependency on government. Welfare roles that keep growing and growing. You mean the poor folks that have given up on exercising their "personal responsibility" and allow the big government to control their lives.
The bigger the government the fewer the freedoms.
There are many examples during this election cycle of foul play in civility.Clint Eastwood is a siren example of the worst in convention speech. As many Republican eyes glazed over in adoration, Clint’s gravitas only lost several legends for me as he blustered deep seated virulence during his deadpan conversation with my President.
Moving forward, I would hope that we can replace vitriol with a sense of future for the best of humanity.
california immigrant leon… You made your decision when you saw the author’s picture. Then you added your political garbage. Then you added in your pet immigration topic. And, of course, the usual hate and outrage. So sad and so predictable…
HEAR WE GO AGAIN WITH THE ..."ANTI-WHITE"...RHETORIC.
My Gawd........the Civil Rights Movement was almost....."FIFTY YEARS AGO.....50"...time for all the Commie Wanna-Be Liberals to ........MOVE ON...that horse has been ridden to death.
I am so sick of our Local TV Stations and Newspapers running ...."BLEEDING HEART" stories about all the .....ILLEGAL ALIEN familes that are being....RIPPED APART...when these ...CRIMINALS...get caught.....here...ILLEGAL ALIENS from Mexico, Bulgaria, Indonesia, Croatia....where ever....YOU KNEW THAT WHEN YOU OVER-STAYED YOUR VISA OR ENTERED THE UNITED STATES ILLEGALLY = THAT YOU WERE COMMITTING A CRIME AND WERE SUBJECT TO BEING DEPORTED.......if you went ahead and got married and had kids.....THAT'S TOO DARN BAD....IT WAS YOUR DECISION...NOW, NOT ONLY ARE YOU GOING TO PAY A PRICE BUT YOUR FAMILY IS TOO....THAT'S THE BREAKS.
I KNEW THE MOMENT I STARTED READING THIS COLUMN THAT IT WOULD END UP BEING JUST ANOTHER...........ANTI-WHITE....ANTI-CAPITALIST...ANTI-AMERICAN PIECE OF PROPAGANDA FOR THE .....LEFT-WING.
chamanduu002 ... you and other right wingers are always injecting " personal responsibility " -- until discussions turn to paying the nations bills that we have run up on the International Credit Card.That requires raising taxes -- spending cuts alone won't do it.But all the right wingers want to do is cut social programs that help the poor / sick / and weak.
" Personal responsibility " is something right wingers only preach to OTHER people about what they do in their lives. They ignore it in their own.
Don't forget faculty plagiarism scandals at ASU. What school was that, CLAS?
When you let the government take over your personal responsibilities then you become less aware in other aspects of life. The attributes Prof Lester questions start with personal responsibility and awareness of your part in the community.
Project Humanities sounds so very liberal, progressive and secular humanism. I'm sure we will hear the usual anti-conservative speeches about racism, the "war on women", corruption of the rich and all the other talking points from the liberal/progressive political structure. All adding up to another rainbow community party for love, self gratification and a dependency on something other than one's self.
Downtown, you are so right, it is more about politics, then humanity. Hate to say it. But, then how do you regain it?. I would like to say I am too old to want it to go. I would still help out and want the best for others. That has been lost it is all about ourselves then others first. Sad!
Unfortunately, Neil, you will only be preaching to the choir.Civility is dead.Our national "leaders" killed it in the name of politics.Winning at all costs trumps ethics and civility now.Dick Cheney spouting the F word on the Senate floor, The President of the USA being called a liar to his face in public.There's no honesty on Wall Street, in politics or anywhere else that I see. It's every man for himself from here on out.
After the latest bill failed to pass through the Senate, do you feel there will be any more attempts at mandating more background checks for gun purchases?
