1. corruption will waste that money
2. Everything is always easier with money. I still do not follow how insisting people follow the laws created by a representative republic is Racist.
3.Mugabe isn't supporting terrorism against us and as soon as he does he needs to be squashed. My main concern is for the safety and well being of citizens of the U.S. I like that we help other countries whenever we can. That is what a good country does. The middle east is a focus now because they are sending killers around the world to murder our citizens and people from other countries. That isn't going to stop until they are more stable, more democratic and more free. Iraq won the lottery. Their dictator was in a position to be continuing threat to us, and we were in a position to squash him. Their people now have a chance to shape their country the way they want. If people around the world had more sense, they would help us deal with Iran.
5. I do disagree with unjust dictatorship. The U.S. only has so much blood and treasure to give out. I would support giving aid to people who want to get rid of Mugabe, however, it needs to be done by the people most affected by it much like the corruption in mexico. Mexico has a pressure release valve in that so many of their best people leave that country to work here. If they focused on changing their own country things would be better.
6. How to fix immigration.
-Build a nice big fence.
-Take 50 percent of I.R.S. or equivalent gov. types and set up new processing centers on the mexican border to make it easier for Mexicans who want to work here to do it legally.
-Massive fines and jail time for businesses that hire people, from anywhere, that work here illegally.
-Set up a workers program for immigrants so that they can easily work here legally, and then apply for citizenship, what we have now does not work because it is taking too long.

Cord: what I object to at this point is having to watch a moderator not follow the rules of the forum that he is supposed to monitor. No one is feeding the troll but you, and we could have gotten past the political crap days ago.

As the originator of the thread regarding this movie, have you anything to say regarding it?

I mean, if you want to use this as your chance to take shots at me, then feel free. You wouldnt be the first, and doubt you will be the last.

Seems a strange way to get a thread back on the topic of a Rodriguez movie, but go ahead and fill your boots smile

That is a damn lie and you know it. There were NO WMD's, and Hussein was in no position to threaten us whatsoever. Bush 1 had a chance to kill him and didn't. Put your koolaide down for one second, please.

Your republican big-business buddies will never go for that - that would mean they would have to pay living wages, benefits and taxes for millions of their employees. You are in massive denial about the nature of your chosen political party.

OK, with full acknowledgement that I participated in discussing the socio-political hot potatoe's around which the film 'Machete' was based, and having given those of opposing views final right to reply, I will now lock this thread as it is clear that there is not much interest in the movie itself.

It gets a UK release later in the year, and who knows, maybe then there will be more who have seen it and feel they want to talk about it.
