With a system like this...

This country was built by immigrants. But with a falling dollar, high unemployment and sky-rocketing food and fuel prices, will any of them still think its worth it? Now the New York Times gives them something else to ponder. In a story that sickens as much as it shocks, they report on an African immigrant who died while in custody. He was fighting to have his green card application re-evaluated, fell after his complaints of illness were apparently ignored and was left for 20 some-odd hours as he lapsed into a coma from massive head trauma. And while all this was going on, neither his lawyers, nor his family were notified?!  Since when did we become a third world country?! This is the kind of thing you'd assoicate with the communist bloc not the high and mighty land of the free. The longer this year goes on the more convinced I am that we, to put it mildly, are screwed.

Read all about it:

I know this is wrong but...

I love the idea of "Neo Nazi soccer hooligans."
