Interstate Or Intrastate MigrationPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
With the U S A, closing its borders to non-legal immigration, what are or ought to be measures taken by its individual states? And what additional ones could they apply, such as splitting into parts, forming confederations, seceding from the union &c? Shouldn't states that wish to welcome or bar certain immigrants make to alter or introduce new laws so as to enable them to? And couldn't immigration be subject to cultural criteria, such as political ones? For example, oughtn't Wyoming be able to keep-out emigrants from, say, Colorado?
Though this may not be a significant problem, it could come to be. For instance, if millions of, say, Californians were to leave a failing for a stable state, such as Texas, shouldn't the latter be able to protect itself from such a less-than-useful influx? And mightn't a state such as Washington, be able to split into a western and eastern part? Beyond this, the states could collectively come to be more important than the union; and, could be free to enter other unions, even with states beyond federal borders

^^^^^ your post Searle shows complete abject ignorance about the United States, the interplay of Federalism and State's Rights and everything else.....a middle schooler would know the answers to most of your questions....so the question is again is why is a guy from "Scotland" giving all sort of opinions about the US, asking dumb azz questions when it is so obvious how little you know.

You want to know something about the US, its political system...its Federal and state governments, ..let me suggest your buying on Amazon a book targeted to grade schoolers that might give you some of the basics.

First off, blue states (ie liberal) generally pay more taxes, due to earning more than the average red state. Red (ie conservative) states mostly rely on selling what they take out of the ground, and that's suseptible to market pricing (blue states sell high end products and services, generally). also, southern states used to have more military bases, which obviously run on tax dollars. so let the red states secede, and watch what happens when trump's climate policies increase not just the storms, but their intensity.

Second, California is the world's eighth largest economy, texas the 11th. texas does have allowance to separate into 5 states (google it if you don't believe me), but if Texas goes, it loses its military bases, FEMA help, and of course has to sign its own NAFTA. And naturally, wouldn't Trump levy tariffs against its products in order to "save real american jobs"?

That's interesting. And so was what I heard on a radio show yesterday. Despite negative perceptions or expectations, some parts of Detroit are remarkably pleasant to live in. And such improvements may make it unnecessary for, say, disillusioned Californians, to move to a remote mountain-top in Idaho &c. I daresay, that big-city improvements are associated with political change

My thoughts,, Ya want to come to this Country, do it the legal way or stay out. Ya manage to get here legally and do nothing to assimilate, or think to change the Laws of the US to those of the Country ya left, then return there.

I was Stationed in three Countries during my 10 years in the Navy, and had the privilege to visit another seven. I was a good Ambassador for the US when visiting those areas.

And this is material why? You had a good job, you were not threatened with being killed by gangs......so what does your piddling experience serving in the Navy have to do with anything at all? You were living off of the taxpayer, remember?

And who comes here and wants to change our laws to those of their country? You talking about Mexicans or Muslims?

Are you willing to go to a war-torn country and go in the gang controlled, bombed out areas to hand out immigration application forms to the people who want to flee for safety? And would you tell them to fill out the forms in a timely manner or they're disqualified-as they're dodging bullets and trying to find a safe place to hide where they're not going to be killed, or scrounging for food to avoid starving to death?

In seeing the efforts of immigrants to the U S A, although I can appreciate their determination to come in from poorer or more hazardous countries, I can't understand why they're not more choosy of the state that they'll get to. Some are so desperate that they'll give their right arm to reach the country, but, on crossing the border, will settle in the state at hand. And this relaxation of ambition may have unfortunate consequences
If I were to settle in the U S A, I'd opt for the finest state in the union. I'd eschew muggy or sultry cannabis-consuming or tobacco-chewing ones; stay out of those containing centipedes, hornets, horse flies, mosquitoes, scorpions or dangerously poisonous spiders; keep out of politically-correct or polluted ones; and, avoid those prone to earthquakes or tornados or full of lyme disease or protozoal mites. I'd go for a state that's income- or sales-tax free, with low car-fuel prices and an abundance of good-looking women. And as a US Permanent Resident's Card holder, I might be back!

Big thumbs up to platitude545 and Carnival_Fishing for pointing out the in my opinion unAmerican, inhuman indecency exhibited by folks like TEXASCHICK. Sadly today's Republican Party hijacked by Teabaggers in my opinion essentially spits on the Statue of Liberty and Plaque at Ellis Island.

The inhumanity apparently is contagious in Texas with unAmerican schmucks like Heidi Cruz having the gall to suggest she somehow is a martyr because she has to work for Goldman Sachs because her husband's nearly $200,000 annual salary isn't enoough:

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/heidi-cruz-ted-cruz-senate-salary-complaint_us_5bc989d8e4b0d38b5876b52a

Please reflect upon your position and what you've said here TEXASCHICK.

I agree

Its easy to pick out the closed minded on the forums. Its easy to pick out the conservatives with their "I got mine, you piss off". And when they too out words like "assimilate". Its easy to pick out the fake christians too.

Why don't we hear more of the states of Canada? I''m drawn to the environs of Edmonton or Jasper
And what I'd like to know is how far north can we go before we have to rough it
In other words, how far does north can living in basic comfort extend?

IDK....I'm in the middle of the province of B.C. and live in an igloo.
Transportation is sled dogs....praying for more snow or those wheels to arrive by mail.
Food is gathered or hunted....had to hide the guns for a bit...heard they wanted to register all and get rid of the automatics.
Sheesh....how can we shoot a herd of buffalos now?
Our kids don't get shot up much though....we home school them.

We bathe in the slough out back with our home made soap....the ducks don't like us much.
Never a shortage on dates...coming from large families we have lots of cousins.
In short...Depending on what your comfort wants are...we welcome all.

When living in Washington state, I fancied having the facility of a CAD account at the C I B C, for there comes a time, in its value against the $US, when it's worth buying. And, on phoning a branch in Vancouver BC, I was surprised to be asked to select either the Chinese or English option. It makes a welcome change from French or Spanish, I suppose

Well done DD.

"..so the question is again is why is a guy from "Scotland" giving all sort of opinions about the US, asking dumb azz questions when it is so obvious how little you know."


How come shermans ask questions saying you know little when they know fvck all about ANY where else but their own wee world.

If they stopped sticking their noses in OUR nations then they MAY have a point. But they cannot help themselves.

The unhinged TDS dafties on here are hilarious. LGL is correct. President the donald is playing a blinder. He has the intolerant illiberal liberals foaming at the mouth.

It is a great spectacle.

They interfered in both the Scottish indy referendum AND brexit. Yet WE have to say nothing back.

I know some good folk from here over the pond. But there are arsewipes.

KJ. Big Yin (if yous are looking in) greetings from Scotland to "america".

Here's tae us?

Well Vlad, if SEARLE lived in the US, doesn't appear he educated himself on the country. His ignorance about the basics a 10 year old should know is pretty profound. I have no opinion about brexit....do you know why? ..because I haven't educated myself on the issue and don't like to offer opinions when I am ignorant on the subject. It's like April, LGL or other ignorants offering opinions or conspiracy theory nonsense here relying on faux news as their source. If you don't have any actual knowledge, pretty difficult to offer a reasonable opinion, don't you think? But if I am aware, I'll offer my generally superior knowledge, like when I took Flick apart. He didn't like it either.

Because Lyin' Ted can't be bought. Ted Cruz would rather be a kept man than take a bribe.

Not like that ugly, drunk driving, bobby kennedy look alike the dems are running.

O'Rourke has taken over $60 million in donations but has yet to run one ad attacking the senator. This might be the first election where a candidate screws over his supporters before they even get a chance to vote for him.

Thanks for the support Vlad. though you ought to know that I'm not a Scotsman. I live, near Edinburgh, in the northernmost part of England. However, if alcoholic drinks were less expensive there, I'd probably be in Aberdeen, Braemar or Wick
I'm a half-Greek Liverpudlian that's lived in Greece, Libia, Germany and the U S A. My impression of the last is that, unless I can afford to live in, say, Cheney WA, Jackson WY or Rangeley ME and to pay the health insurance premiums for a fit seventy-one-year-old, it wouldn't be worth me returning there. Mind you, there may be advantages in moving to a reviving city, such as Chicago may be or Detroit is. And that George Noory was pushing Coast To Coast AM listeners into buying gold near the top of the market when he could have been telling them to invest in a residence, at the bottom of it, in his home-town of Detroit disappoints me
Though I do like the U K, I'm considering an escape from living under a monarchy, the B B C. B M C etc to taking-up residence in Estonia, Austria, Kazakhstan or even the Republic Of Ireland. And good luck to you – you're a stalwart

Look mate I'm no trying to fall out with you. Far from it. You mention brexit and knowing nothing of it. Fair enough. But brexit WILL affect the usa at some point.

I knew very little about sherman politics until i started reading posts on here. I only knew that a shed load of money was spent to bring a suit into power.

The electoral college? It STILL baffles me. Though posters try and explain it to me. I always found the sherman health care system to be ridiculous. Even more so when (my forum pal) Trinity explained about her losing her health care.

I knew about your military though. Many many times our laddies and lassies have been dragged into wars.

But how else do you find things out without asking questions?

You can't blame DD for what HE writes then say nothing when millions of americans get abuse because they voted for trump.

Looking down noses at folk will eventually get that nose bloodied.

Obama AND clinton both threatened the uk over brexit. Trump said it was up to us how we voted. And THAT my friend was why i wanted trump to win.

If DD was not starting threads abokut many subjects this forum would be like the uk one. Dead.

LGL writes some brilliant observations. A lot of folk over here laugh at how completely unhinged folk are over trump. TDS. We get the same with the remainer campaign.

Completely barking mad.

And i think LGL is correct at trump playing a game with the intolerant illiberal liberal mob. He makes a statement. Cue TDS unhingedness. More normal folk scratching their heads at the frothing intolerant illiberal liberal mob.

The guardian media outlet over here is saying that trump has no opposition from the democrats. Because they have no leadership. Only the TDS mob.


As for trump and the porn star. I take it she didn't mind he was married either? Again i ask the question WHY does bill clintons abuse of impressionable young lassies get glossed over?

Where is #metoo regarding this? Where is the feminist 'outrage'? TDS i would hazard a guess.

This is from the liberal guardian newspaper. Even they notice how unhinged shermans are becoming. Prepared to forgive one sex pest because he is THEIR sex pest........



"The last time I looked, Bill Clinton was leering at Ariana Grande as she was singing at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. Bill, as his wife described him, was always “a hard dog to keep on the porch”. She lived with his many infidelities, often dismissing the kinds of women he went for as trashy and insignificant.

Indeed, when his affair with Monica Lewinsky was finally revealed, she, too, was scorned, not just by Hillary, who was lied to by her husband, and lied for him, but by many other prominent feminists.

Erica Jong was nasty about her; so was Tina Brown. The New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd called her predatory.* She was spoken of as blousy, stupid, unattractive, scheming – and having bad breath. Some solidarity.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/oct/15/hillary-clinton-monica-lewinsky-affair-husband


*a young lassie was 'predatory' with the sleaze bag in the white house!!!!!!!!!!
Wonder if the porn star was 'predatory'?

Here mate ANYONE is welcome to reside in my country if they are a decent person. Even better if they support the Hibees.

So technically you are a scouse bubble? (Cue deranged twatter attack for wacism). I'm a sweaty sock who has lived in Edinburgh, london and jersey (thats OUR jersey).

But mainly Edinburgh.

Loved that march in london yesterday. Half a millions dafties crying because citizens voted the wrong way.

'The peoples vote' lol. They never gave a shit about 'the people' when we were struggling. They never listened to 'the people' when we voiced our fears.

Yet now 'the people' have to vote again because 'the people' voted the wrong way lol

Knob geldof, bonio, tony 'war criminal' blair, the liberal daftie who now earns millions of £'s from facebook.

I'm sure 'the people' will pay heed and demand a rerun. After all the brussels gulag has made nations rerun elections until they win.

I was going to put a bet on a while back on a brexit, trump double. Never done it though because the mighty Hibernian FC won the Scottish Cup. All celebrations went on that. First cup win in 114 years. We were drunk for three days solid.

Happy times

In researching that non-event or Royal scam the 'Invictus Games' and its obscure funding,
I find that the Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CIBC) is in there
Next time, I'll have to turn to TorDom or the Royal Bank Of Canada

According to The Guardian, a Scouse bubble is a Liverpudlian consumer of Irish stew or bubble'n'squeak; and, to others, just a laugh. But I reckon that it's, by some twist of rhyming slang, akin to Cockney —thief

Scouse is a stew that is scranned in liverpool. Manchester if famed for hot pots.

Bubble and squeak is mainly in my experience a london/essex thing. I had bubble with my brekkie when i was in essex a few weeks ago in Walton On The Naze.

Walton also has a pie and mash and jellied eels shop.

Double pie, double mash and liquor (parsley with eel juice) is brilliant. A joy to wolf down. When i lived in hackney in london i used to go to cooks' every week for pie and mash.

As for****ey rhyming slang a bubble and squeak is a greek. But the drop the squeak and just say 'e's a bubble mate'.

Sweaty socks are what englandshire folk call Scots. 'You sweaty cahnt' type thing.

I love regional accents. We have a rich history in accents. In Edinburgh and as far as Newcastle we use lots of gypsy words.

Barry, gadgie, screeve, joogal, stardie, mort, shan, chavvie

The words mean good, man, car, dog, jail, woman, bad, child

"Ya want to come to this Country, do it the legal way or stay out."

>>>yeah, that's how Texas got taken from Mexico. There was no war, the Texans just assimilated and asked nicely if they could leave.

the world knows about the american military the same way america was taken from its native hands by the english army. and the Brits sure helped us remove a democratically elected government from Iran in 1953. we didn't help them much to reclaim the Suez Canal, however. Our bad.

No doubt, Bill Clinton is a pig.

As for Baldwins and mustangs, Motion performance's only foray into fords was the shelby cobras. They did, however, work with Markowitz Oldsmobile to make a 4-4-2 they called...the Mach I. thus answering the question, "an intellectual is someone who is recognized by their intellect even when they assume another name. A rose is still a rose."

Unless a person is native American, at some point in everybody's family tree, their roots are from some other country. I wonder how many went to the U.S. illegally, and did so for the same reasons some people are currently trying to flee from their country. Did Trump's (formerly named Drumpf) grandparents end up in the U.S. from Germany legally? Since Donald Trump was totally obsessed with making Obama show his birth certificate to prove he's American, why not make Donald show proof that his ancestors from Germany went to the U.S. legally? If he can't show proof, that could make the Trump clan illegal aliens.
