25 06 11 - 03:19Dunno how it was for you, but when I was a kid, adults always whacked us with the "maturity" thing:
- When you're mature, you'll understand this.
- It's an acquired taste, you know, for mature people.
- You're so immature. Just grow up and (do whatever sucky thing they want).
- A mature person would see it differently.
Of course, we knew it was a con job. "Mature" was their way of saying what I want want, God Damn It, and Right Now or you're grounded.
My question is: when do all these "mature" people grow up and start dealing with, instead of blowing off, the issues of our time?
The Texas Senate early on Wednesday passed a measure pushed by Governor Rick Perry aimed at cracking down on cities that provide sanctuary to illegal immigrants.
"Drug traffickers and transnational gangs should think twice before they step foot in Texas," Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, who presides over the Senate, said in a statement. "Prohibiting sanctuary city policies will make the apprehension, detention and deportation of dangerous criminals more uniform -- keeping us all safer and Texas more secure."
The measure now heads to the House, which passed a similar bill during the regular legislative session that ended May 30. That measure died because Senate Democrats blocked it. But lawmakers are now in a special legislative session, and since different rules apply, Senate Democrats were unable to stop it this time. Both chambers have Republican majorities. - Hemorreuters
Gosh golly, what could this be about?
Rick Perry's possible presidential campaign, for one.
But even more, the knowledge by white voters that they are being replaced by imported voters:
Across the USA, white voters know they're being replaced if they let it happen.
Since the 1965 Hart-Celler act, immigration from non-white countries has begun to demographically supplant the white American population:
They also know that, whether he's succeeding or failing, black support for Obama does not waver, suggesting that identity politics plays a higher role.
In fact, the worldwide pattern is that ethnic and/or cultural groups vote for and support "one of their own." Samuel Huntington portrayed this reality in his brilliant Clash of Civilizations. - Houston Conservative Examinerrhoid.
This is from an article I posted on Examiner.com, which is a "more mainstream" (and probably mature) site than this one, thus reaches a lot of people we cannot reach through ANUS.com.
The point is, dear mature adults, that immigration depletes the source countries of a population they need. It's also a tool of one political party to dominate the other here. As usual, every person is aiming at personal profit and ignoring the consequences. The truth is that people would be happier without immigration. But that's not officially matureTM so we'll never hear that.
Instead, it's more maturity with the Democrats telling us we're racist if we don't go along with their "one people, one world, one giant mall" order, and Republicans talking to us about freedom and liberty and why we need more nuclear weapons.
If this is maturity, let me out.
