    Of course I believe that. Otherwise I wouldn't have said it. I believe it was you who suggested that I am grasping at straws in the first place. So you reaped what you sowed.

    I suggested no such thing. Read #53 again.

    So, the Texas State Comptroller is just "someone posting on Wikipedia"?

    There are other references, but I don't think you want to be convinced. Google it for yourself and see how right I am. I dare you.

    You wrote "Stated by someone who has never been desperate enough to grasp at any straw just to survive."

    Ok, so no one told you, you just guessed it. Got it!

    That actually makes more sense.

    I looked at the evidence, something you have not done apparently.

    Yes. Exactly. Meaning that in my opinion, you have no empathy for those people because you have never been desperate enough to grasp at any straw to survive, to protect yourself and your family from something dire.

    Does that clarify it? I'm not accusing or attacking, just saying that, according to the opinions you've expressed towards immigrants, it seems to me that you feel nothing but fear and/or hatred towards them. If I'm wrong, I apologize, but I only have your words to guide me.

    No, but it can't find things which do not exist. Yours apparently does.

    Is there some part of "I only have your words to guide me" that you're having trouble with?

    Your posts about immigrants are consistently negative.

    No my comments about ILLEGAL immigrants are consistently negative because ILLEGAL immigration is a serious problem. I'm a strong supporter of immigration. My mother was a legal immigrant that earned citizenship the right way.
