Default Been fed up with the news media...

So I've been creating alternate scenarios to the mess that we are in....

With the children coming over the border...I feel we are wasting a lot of talent.

The purpose they are coming over...put aside. I feel if we healed these children...gave them a good American education, taught them english & the American culture.

If one of them becomes the next Gerrit Cole, Argenis Diaz, Giancarlo Stanton.....

Heck Magic Johnson....

We would've wasted a lot of talent by sending them back.

Not neglecting the fact, but kids need to be kept busy, occupied & out of trouble.

Never know what someone can become.

Any thoughts on this concept? I feel we are too one-sided about things lately.

What border is that in MA? The Canadian?

You might think differently living where they are coming in at. Someone from Texas or Arizona could give some insight.

Is this real life?

I want to know - no I need to know - where the randomness of Gerrit Cole, Argenis Diaz, and Giancarlo Stanton came from.

So we've got a white kid from California, an Irish/African American/Puerto Rican from Florida (people realize the background of Stanton right?), and a Venezuelan that has 2 career RBI's

And then Magic Johnson.

Got it.

No offense, but it is easy to have these high ideas when you live in an area that is 95% white where you don't have to deal with the reality if what is going on.

I love it. Ben starts at the end of a BO thread. Consider that each thread here begins with a discussion from a posed question or remark in the OP. From there it is sure to derail, happens each and every time. Ben in his genius, ends a thread from the start. No discussion is needed.

Thank you Ben, /thread.

*Insert every "What the F*ck GIF" ever created here*


The only thing we are wasting with all these kids coming over the border is the money we spend that supposedly keeps them out.

I agree try living out in AZ and see how ya feel, there are some positives but it puts a ton of burdon on the local cops on the border counties and 2son to try to keep up with a issue the feds should be dealing with, if they could come to a balance fair to both sides id be all for it but even people that come legally to AZ are P#@#@#@ed off about this situation.

The only vitriol I see in the news media is towards anti-illegal immigration proponents. Most news outlet wil not even use the word illegal calling them undocumented or informal immigramts and proclaim amyone saying illegal is a racist.

I don't disagree with any of this other than the fact that Stanton is from California born and raised, not Florida. Strange how many people think he is from, Cuba, the DR or somewhere else. He is an American.

Ben? Seriously? WTF man? You've been spending wayyyy too much time in the walk ins.

Oh - I thought it was Florida

Either way you make the same point I am - Stanton is not only American, but he's Irish/African American/Puerto Rican descent - people assume otherwise.

So even the Puerto Rican part of his family is part of an American Territory.

Oh yeah, its the end of the world & we are all going to crap in the zombie apocalypse.....(sarcasm).

I'm tired of the negativity. If the world gave you a million lemons, and wouldn't you start a lemonade business?

The world would never give me a million lemons because I would never start a gofundme account asking for them.
