Sharon asks…

Is he cheating or am i just paranoid?? Fellas I need ur point of view too!?

Before me and my husband got married he had cheated a few times when he got bored with the girl. We have been married for almost 2 years and now he supposably “works” 12 hours a day 7 days a week. He used to text me or call me while hes at work, he doesnt anymore. He goes to his boss’s house every night, not telling me when hes gonna be home, hasn’t said i love you and i havent gotten a kiss in about a week. I havent even seen him in like 4 days cuz he gets home around 4am and leaves for work around 11 and im still sleeping. There is some chick at his work that he texts back and forth calling her “babygirl” and referring to himself as “big daddy.” He has also just been plain mean to me whenever I do see him……what do u guys think? he never used to act like this before.

Daniel asks…

Why are people saying that children of illegals are not included in the 14th amendment?

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.”

The plain meaning of this language is clear. A foreign national living in the United States is “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” because he is legally required to obey U.S. law. (By contrast, a foreign diplomat who travels here on behalf of a foreign sovereign enjoys diplomatic immunity from—and thus is not subject to the jurisdiction of—U.S. law.)

During congressional debates, both proponents and opponents of the citizenship clause agreed with this interpretation of the 14th Amendment. For example, Pennsylvania Sen. Edgar Cowan opposed the clause precisely because it would extend birthright citizenship to the U.S.-born children of Chinese laborers and other noncitizens who “owe [the U.S.] no allegiance [and] who pretend to owe none.”

Tellingly, Cowan’s racially charged opposition was met with the following response from California Sen. John Conness: “The proposition before us . . . relates simply in that respect to the children begotten of Chinese parents in California, and it is proposed to declare that they shall be citizens. . . . I am in favor of doing so. . . . We are entirely ready to accept the provision proposed in this constitutional amendment.”

Supreme Court precedent further reinforces this view of the 14th Amendment. In 1898, the court held that a U.S.-born child of Chinese immigrants was entitled to citizenship. In United States v. Wong Kim Ark, it held that the “14th Amendment affirms the ancient and fundamental rule of citizenship by birth within the territory . . . including all children here born of resident aliens.”

The court reiterated this view in Plyler v. Doe (1982). The majority held—and the dissent agreed—that the 14th Amendment extends to anyone “who is subject to the laws of a state,” including the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. Likewise, in INS v. Rios-Pineda (1985), the court again unanimously agreed that a child born to an undocumented immigrant was in fact a U.S. citizen.

@ Uri- you did not read.
A foreign national living in the United States is “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” because he is legally required to obey U.S. law.
therefor children of illegals and illegal are subject to the jurisdiction of the US
@ sandra – illegals do pay taxes

@lucero- you obviously have not read the Constitution, and do not have a valid argument and resort to calling names, very mature
@ common sense. How about forming a valid argument instead of going the informal fallacy route? Mr. ad hominem
@ coasty- if illegals are not under the jurisdiction of the US, then they are not required to follow US laws, and we can not call them illegal immigrants.
this is not true seeing as how we do have this authority give to us in the 14th amendment. why are you trying to only use it partially? if they are under our jurisdiction then their children also have the right to citizenship

Administrator answers:

The vast majority of the children born to illegals in this country, no matter what bigoted wishful thinking would desire, will not return to a country they have no emotional or economic ties to. There is approximately 11 million illegals in this country producing babies. So, that could make about 30,000,000 people to round up. All this will produce is an extremely dangerous underground society with not ties to any country or laws.

George asks…

What does this quote mean?

The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains. Meaning?

Administrator answers:

Mountains have a mystery about them that allure us, but once you are there, they are not as alluring. Common plains are the true preference.

Chris asks…

Why is that Liberals are just so plain mean? Do they have Demons?

Every day I get a half a dozen or more emails from the most hateful people, all Democrats mind you, telling me that my Conservative beliefs and high standards for living a Christian life offends them. They use the most vulgar language you have ever heard but I am far too much of a lady to repeat it so you will have to trust me that it is just ugly.

They call me and all the other Republicans liars, thieves, nosey, selfish, and a whole lot of other ugly things that don’t bear repeating. They say that we are imposing our religious views on them when all we are trying to do is save them from burning in Hell! Why is it that they feel compelled to do this? Don’t they realize how hurtful this is? Don’t they care that we just want a Christian nation the way that God intended it to be? I seriously believe that a lot of them suffer from demonic possession because of the sinful causes which they support and engage in. Do you think they have demons too?

I would like serious answers from Republicans only. Liberals, kindly keep your comments to yourself. No0t that it will do much good but I will pray for you, However, but I do not want to hear another hateful thing out of you.
