A common sense, merit based immigration plan

.

Would it not be to the advantage of the general welfare of the United States and her citizens to select immigrants for entry into the United States based upon specific attributes which will promote the general welfare of the United States? It has been suggested that assigning positive points to desirable attributes is a rational approach to creating a merit based immigration system, and likewise assigning negative points to undesirable attributes. Is this not a common sense approach in determining who is and who is not welcome in the United States?

A rational approach to immigration control

1.

Is it common sense to allow the poverty stricken poorly educated low and unskilled populations of other countries who have no visible means of support, to flood into America without any conditions placed upon them, e.g., having a sponsor who will provide their necessities of life and that a job is waiting for them?

2.

Is it common sense to allow those with contagious diseases such as chickenpox, tuberculosis, measles, mumps, and sexually transmitted diseases to be introduced into our nation’s population? Of course not, and thus a restriction ought to be placed upon this class of immigrant.

3.

Is it common sense to allow immigrants with mental disorders to be introduced into our country?

4.

How about those wishing to migrate into the United States whose cultural and moral values are in direct conflict with America’s cultural and moral values? Should we not consider the consequences of allowing this group to flood into our country and restrict their entry to preserve the general welfare of our country?

5.

And let us not forget a group which falls into a very, very dangerous class . . . those who are tied to terrorist groups and whose mission is to bring mayhem and destruction to the United States. Is it really in America’s best interests to open our borders to this type of “immigrant”?

The common sense to

The common sense to immigration is to not have any. Additional mouths have already exhausted America's real wealth, its agricultural production, to the extent we feed over 50 million people with imported food. If we need certain skills we should be training our youth in those skills. I used to live in Cambridge, not far from the Berkley School of Music and whenever we passed it I used to comment to my wife, "just what we need, another bunch of over-educated guitar players."

When I think of common sense

When I think of common sense and the debate that seems to go on about it , I always thought of he famous SCOTUS pornograhy
cases rulings where a justice offered that he couldn't say what hit was but he"knew " it when he saw it.
Kind of fits to most discussions about common sense.
Note: to pmconusa that was before your friend Ruth Buzzy was on court she didn't get to watch the movies !

Bruce: If you are implying guilt by association I don't know Ruth Buzzy nor am I acquainted with her position on anything. I would suggest in any case you get yourself a spell checker because your criticisms of me lack even less credibility when your usage of the language is below that of a ten year old.

"...... because your criticisms of me lack even less credibility when your usage of the language is below that of a ten year old."

Yes, take that Bruce. And a fine example of language mastery it is.

For more info, you can't read about the principles in the book I haven't published.

Have you reached the point where you can't even recognize YOUR inanities? Whether in grammar, language construct, or points that contradict your oft spouted condescensions?

It's common to suggest that Bruce read his posts two or three times before hitting "save," or have someone else do it for him. I suggest the same might be appropriate for you, especially for contextual merit.

Perish the thought you are so convinced of your infallibility that you are unable to recognize your own posting "oops."

I haven't recognized any

I haven't recognized any contradictions or reasoned opposition to my viewpoints because there haven't been any. If I missed one I would ask you to repeat it so the readers can judge for themselves.

As for little "sir echo" there is no limit to his groveling to you.

I repeat for you.
There is no sense absolutely no sense for anyone to attempt to respond to you in any form shape or manner.
Because you simply refuse to accept any comment that is contrary to yours because as stated by a fellow AMG member
"I'm sure that you, as the Revelator of All Truth,will have easy answers to enlighten the unwashed masses with".
Long ago I stated you were correct and were the absolute holder of the truth on what ever the topic is.
You do not want anything that will be contrary to your position on the topic.
We are all stupid or whatever you choose to believe the responding commenter is.
I would consider it a compliment that you are seen in this way. Instead of saying thank you, you continue to use your superior language skills
and there is no limit on posting space here, to be the resident ungrateful ,obnoxious ,arrogant ,condescending old fart !

Bruce: the problem, as I have

Bruce: the problem, as I have stated over and over again is there has never been a counter argument only disagreement without basis. Both you and your compatriot Mel have not read my books but disagree with everything in them. That is not honest debate.

That is a preposterous, bald-faced lie. Since I have not read either of your books, I am not aware of "everything in them." Once again, your logic leaves me aghast.

Now do me a favor; read these few words of yours again, and tell us all how they make perfect literary sense:

"...... because your criticisms of me lack even less credibility when your usage of the language is below that of a ten year old."

You are so convinced of your infallibility that you are totally incapable of recognizing the opposite in your use of ordinary English language.

Detach yourself for a moment every now and then from your lofty view of yourself....and see what the little people see.

They don't disagree with your book, just everything you write here.

I too disagree with everything you write here, and take particular umbrage with your insane mangling of physics and chemistry.

AC remember I am beyond agreeing or disagreeing ,I have accepted him as the total truth.
It is easier although regretful that he cannot accept the honor bestowed on him.

Mel; The points I make in my books have been rendered here on AMG on numerous occasions. You did not have to read them to get the gist of my AMG comments but it would have helped you understand them better since you seem not to understand things unless spelled out in detail. As I recall, many readers have complained about the length of some of my posts. My only answer is a lie can be spouted in just a few words, such as the Russians hacked the elections. The truth requires more elaboration since the opposite of the Russians hacked the election is the Russians did not hack the election. The latter as you know is a negative and impossible to prove.

The problem with the latter is that if the Russians admitted to hacking the election and tried to explain how they did it, those who accused them would call them liars. It is difficult to get through to people who think like this.

Anonymous: I expect you

Anonymous: I expect you would because you have your own set of facts. Would you cite where I misstated physics and chemistry so we can judge whose facts are right?

Recently we debated Einstein's equation E = mc^2. If you subtract one side from the other you get E - mc^2 = 0 which means when E and mc^2 are positive and equal there is nothing. If you examine the dimensions of the equations you can not find the dimension of time or temperature which gave Einstein his dilemma because if you introduce these dimensions on either side Et1T1 = T2t2,c^2 or ET1t1 - T2t2mc^2 = 0 it can only be true if T1t1 = T2t2. At any moment in time t1 = t2 so you can cancel these from either side but that still leaves T1 and T2 and when they are equal we are left with E - mc^2 = 0

The dilemma here is for this equation to be true you must believe something can be made from nothing, or when T1 approaches T2 something occurs a t = infinity that changes energy into mass. This is the Big Bang theory or as I suggested something like the reemergence of a dissolved solid that has been cooled below the temperature at which it is soluble. In the case of the universe, when the temperature of the undissolved solids equal the temperature of the space in which they have dissolved or, converted to energy.

In this case I chose to believe the latter, though it cannot be proven except on a small scale such as splitting the atom and enhancing a carbon isotope into its diamond form by the application of heat and pressure. In the one case it is releasing energy and the other the application of energy. The other is to believe there was nothing and God created the universe and everything in it from nothing. Attempts at proof of that have exposed it as myth because the how must be taken on faith and faith is an acquired thing, not inherent in humans because the vast majority of humankind do not believe in the God of the Jews or the Christians who are vastly outnumbered by the rest of us.

So as not to confuse the reader T1 or T2 of t1 or t2, the number should have been written as a subscript.

I tried to tell you. Accept him as the holder of the truth and your position as a member of the great unwashed
will be confirmed. Of course you will not receive a thank you for your adulation of him.
That is a burden we all must bare.

A = B

A = B

A - B = 0

We must have created something from nothing!

Maybe it was math?

A + B = 1 if A is 1, or = 1

A + B = 1 if A is 1, or = 1 if B is 1, or = 1 if A and B are both 1. Which is to say that A + B = 0 only if both A and B are 0.

It's really quite simple. Welcome to the digital today and tomorrow.

Bool(e)ah, Bool(e)ah; Bool(e)ah, Bool(e)ah.

Let's see who can't take a joke.
