Random thoughts about illegal immigration, relative morality, and the liberal mind . . .
For many in our world there is no such thing as absolute morality. There’s no such thing as a black and white, open and shut case. For these folks, all thoughts, issues, choices, and actions must be examined through various shades of innumerable murky grey complexities. Relative morality is a hyper-sensitive preference towards the individual or to the particular situation rather than to the general rule. Thus every little exception disproves the validity of any rule.
The following are some typical Liberal comments followed by my Conservative response:
Lib:“Only the Sith deal with absolutes.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi, in the last part of the Revege of the Sith (From Star Wars – the holy video)
Con: According to liberal thought, today’s warrior priests (Sith Lords) who are devoted to the dark side of of the force are usually referred to as “Wing-nuts.”
Lib: “ . . .So perhaps it is possible to hold to absolutes and yet respond according to the differences that each situation brings.”
Con: This stance often results in confusion between the absolute mandates of the rule of law with the relative humanistic or “pastoral” concern for the individual illegal immigrant.
Lib: “Morality is a selective preference created dynamically by culture. So no, there is no absolute morality.”
Con: And we now have discovered what happens when multiculturalism bumps into existing U.S. Laws (Suggestions).
Lib: “Evil does not really exist, it is merely an absence of good in the way that black is actually an absence of color.”
Con: Isn’t it interesting that those who deny the existence of evil in this world, and who deny absolute morality, are usually the first to play the victim and to point fingers???
Typical liberal nonsense (race-carding)
Lib: “While they may break laws in so doing – which is wrong, and needs to be examined more – they are not bad people, and I think suggesting they are truly is tinged with racism, which is something I don’t say lightly.”
Con: Do you know of any anti-illegal immigration activists who have actually suggested that illegal aliens are bad people???
I loved this comment found on the internet:
Lib: “I had written a nice long post about absolute and relative morality and the problems with both and why I reject the notion of ‘morality’ blah blah blah. Then my computer crashed and twenty minutes’ work vanished. . .”
Con: Now was that a relatively bad thing, a random event, or a blessed act of Divine providence??? You be the judge! 🙂
Question: How many illegals are using the stolen Social Security numbers and other identity documents of millions of American citizens, including tens of thousands of American children?
Answer: Nobody actually knows because nobody wants to talk about it so nobody is counting.
Just some Illegal News . . .
Watch the Video “Matricula Card Not Accepted in Mexican Banks”
Earlier this week Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn introduced legislation (H.R. 1314) aimed at preventing U.S. financial institutions from handing out credit cards to illegal aliens.
H/T to Calif. GOP Rep. Brian Bilbray
How to Close an Immigration Loophole Yesterday, I signed on to co-sponsor H.R. 1314, the Photo Identification Security Act, authored by Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). This legislation would stipulate the specific forms of identification needed to attain a credit card or bank account. Some financial institutions have been issuing credit cards and open accounts for people who don’t have Social Security numbers — most of whom are thought to be illegal immigrants. The federal government cannot claim to be serious about addressing illegal immigration while at the same time; allowing loopholes to exist that encourage illegal immigration activity. Financial institutions have been taking advantage of a loophole in federal law that has allowed them to profiteer off of illegal immigration.
The Photo Identification Security Act will close that loophole so that the integrity of our banking process will remain in tact. Those forms of documentation listed in the bill are a Social Security card with a government-issued form of identification such as a state driver’s license, or a U.S. or foreign passport, or a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services photo identification card. Matricula Consular cards, a form of identification issued by the Mexican government, would not be accepted for starting accounts or credit cards, since the Marticula Consular cards are not a secure form of identification.
