“The implication that Solange was justified in her domestic physical violence despite the video showing the allegation of defense was bogus.
Beyonce was standing there and so was her husband - NOTHING in the video shows any physical violence between those two.
Instead, you buy into this "i was defending my sister" and justify the act of violence.
The analogy with the OP is one and the same - inferring the OP would not do as the OP claims if it was OP's sister defending her. Again, justifying domestic physical violence when the video clearly shows non existed.
Domestic violence is domestic violence. Men or women as victims it doesn't change the dynamics of domestic violence.”
“The part where you tell yourself it is acceptable to engage in physical violence against another person? That part in your comment? The "Unless...." part?
No where on that video is there violence against ANYONE but the guy. You must think it is ok to convince yourself of something to engage in physical violence?
Do you believe it is ok for a spouse to beat on another spouse? If the guy was the one shown hitting the sister - I imagine you would make the same statement "unless he was defending his wife" despite the fact that NO WHERE in the video do you see physical violence but from one person?
Shameful. Domestic violence is domestic violence. Stop trying to sympathize with domestic violence offenders.”

“Apparently you missed the OP, who said she'd attack her sister for attacking her husband. So I said you wouldn't if your sister had been defending you. I did not condone violence and was making the case for not adding to the violence.”

“The issue of immigration is one consistent policy - and the policy advocated by the Right is a bigoted hypocrisy. The U.S. is a make up of its citizens. It is not some abstract divine country.
The U.S., through its citizens, has played a major role with immigration through employers hiring the subject immigrants and consumers consuming their goods. The labor is just part of the big picture.”

“What mistakes are you talking about? You mean the intentional exploitation of immigration? Stop kidding yourself with your nonsense. Immigrants don't force their labor on employers. Immigrants don't force the goods of their labor on consumers.
You consumer the labor of immigrants. Employers employ the labor of immigrants - and you want to classify "them" as the wrong doers?
Snap out of it.”

“employers should be prosecuted and E-verify should be universal no matter what size of business. It is free to use it.”

“it was implied that US doesn't have the right to protect it's borders because Native Americans were not able to protect their land long ago. What I am saying is that smart people learn from other's mistakes.”

“Then maybe you should take yourself back to Europe? You are more illegal in this land than any one with native roots in this land.”

“Spain and Portugal took
Latin America by force from the indigenous tribes.By that theory
everyone of Spanish and Portuguese descent needs
to haul back to Europe and give Latin America

“PART Cherokee. The rest of my ancestors came here LEGALLY! Please explain "any one with native roots in this land." 'Cause the Western Hemisphere goes from the Ice sheets in Northern Canada to Tierra Del Fugio, in South America. Haven't HEARD that being Born in the USA gives me ANY rights to set up "shop" in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Honduras, etc, etc, etc. "Native Roots" in Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Paraguay, etc is NOT in the North American Continent.”

“powdered carrot juice? Sounds gross. We have a Mexican market out here in Vegas that sells vegetables so inexpensive - and we have fresh blended vegetable juice all the time. If you mix up the carrots with some oranges - wow! Just wow!”
“Maybe they should focus on those things that leave such an impression of NYC drivers? =D”

“Who cares what people think of New York drivers? If you ride a bike in NYC, follow the rules or get a ticket. It's really simple. Get belligerent, get arrested. That's not hard to grasp either. Baldwin follows this behavior pattern over and over. He needs help.”
“This man will wash the feet of convicted prisoners - he will hug and kiss those who have been touched by rare disease -
all while the "Christians" in the U.S. convince their followers to buy their books, send them money, and have them believe that enriching themselves is God's blessing - those without are without because God wants it that way.
