    I keep hearing the Democrats complain about everything that Trump does but I can’t find what they would rather do. I will vote democrat next time if they truely intend to give Medicare for All, but the border must be closed first. However, I’m starting to hear rumors that the Democrats are now thinking Medicare for Some. Since I’m middle income that usually means others will get it and I will pay for it, but I won’t get any benefit from it.

    What I don't understand is why do all newcomers have to be people of color I'm white and feel like nobody wants white people coming into the country anymore like there's something wrong with us I mean why is everybody so racist against white people it makes me feel like nobody wants white people around as a white person I feel that way and especially since they're acting like it's a bad thing for white people to come into the u.s. I feel like there is horrible
    racism against white Americans than there is against people of color I refuse to be ashamed of my skin these days it's very important to not fall into a racism trap way of thinking it's important to make all rights equal all races equal I'm white and I have never felt special or important

    The Democrats controlled all of congress for two years during president Obama's first term (who promised to address immigration and gun control in his first term), for a time with a filibuster-proof senate. They did absolutely nothing on immigration nor gun control. NOTHING! They had the votes, opportunity and duty to make substantive changes to these issues and didn't. Can any Democrat explain this please?

    You dumb b*tch, the immigration laws should have been changed months ago, or even years! You are stepping on yourself you stuttering, hand waving sack of sh*t! Vote all DemoRATS out in 2020, we don't want you anymore! Trump 2020! And shut the border down, turn the illegals away or flew them on a jet back to,their country as soon as possible!

    Anyone for an open immigration policy should have to live next to multiple immigrant families, you end up feeling like the foreigner in your own country. They bring all their family and take over.

    Leave it to Nancy Pelosi to find the word "merit" condescending! Nancy, it's all good, absolutely nothing wrong with the word, just relax!!! And by the way, Americans do support legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship, but we want good people that will love and be proud to be Americans. Americans support Trump's plans for a "merit-based" immigration policy, not your plan to bring in anti-American flag burners, drug dealers, criminals, and all the bad apples that want to enter the United States illegally.

    She doesn’t want merit she wants low educated dependent immigrants that democrats can hook on social programs and get them to vote for democrats. It’s the same plan Lyndon Johnson had for blacks in the 60’s. It’s like a drug dealer. Give them just enough so they can survive and they will never move up and will always come back for the fix. It’s the worst kind of racism known to man, just above slavery.

      Pilfer Bean Month ago

      @Daniel Oliver No, it doesn't mean that, and that's not at all clever. I wouldn't try word play any more, if I were you.
      It means you're insecure, but you don't want to face it--- and so you project it outward onto others. That's not the exact definition of "alienated", but it's what alienated people do. If you actually want to know what the word "alienated" means, don't be lazy and ask me-- look it up for yourself. You can read, apparently. And I really doubt you'll look it up, will you? Pretty scary, to look at ourselves. Much easier to attack everyone else. True?
      So. Look it up. Then see if you can possibly apply it to yourself profitably.
      And if it should happen that a miracle takes place, and you see something, and you have a moment of meaningfulness, and you encounter yourself, you'll want to thank me. But don't worry about it. It's my pleasure.
      And from that moment forward, you'll see refugees, and any person, in any situation, as being you in a different fate. And you might even develop some tenderness and compassion for your fellow man, before you die-- and you might have at least a few years of existence in which you retired from making useless warfare on pictures of people in your head-- pictures you painted yourself, pictures of imaginary people who are enemies to you for your own invented reasons. And you might look up to God in the sky and ask him to forgive you for all the years of senseless hatred-- all the hours and days and weeks and months of waste, making people who are just like you into targets of your empty, cold, barren, alienated soul.
      Because they're just like you.
      And that must be terrifying for you..

    The only path to citizenship, should be to come legally. Merit means immigrants have a job before arrival, can afford housing, have a sponsor who will care for them if they fall on hard times, have job skills we are looking for, speak English, have no criminal background. They should not be allowed to apply for Government handouts. This is how it was done in the past. Reagan failed the US, because he gave amnesty to millions without securing the border. Linsey Graham has some good ideas on immigration. I like his bill.

      @String Monkey have you seen the prices for the actual agriculture equipment now a days? First check them out and you'll see why AI cost would be way to expensive to implement on farming as an example go to check for John deer equipment example harvesting equipment is almost half a million for starting prices AI will never come to farming trust me

      @Lord Dracula If the local grange get a few machines in, letting the farmers rent them, it may catch on. Look how much they are willing to put out for other pieces of farm equipment. I doubt Giant and Walmart spent anywhere near that amount of money on their machines.

      @String Monkey while the use of smart appliances on those places you mentioned is true they're not considered actual AI those are programmed smart appliances such as tablets or vacuum's AI is defined by programs like siri or Alexa wich have voice and command recognition and has the capability to answer properly to the question asked those programs start between $15,000 to $200,000 dollars to create depending on the task you are going to program it add to that the price of hydraulics and engineering required to make it work the way you're proposing and that machine alone will be approximately at $700,000 to 1,200,000 according to manufacturing now to that add the impact is going to have because of the trade war that this clown started and the price will be higher making it not only way to expensive for farmers but it won't be easy to sell for the reason i mentioned to you before 1 farmers won't afford them and 2 people won't let machines take their jobs if you go to a farmer and mention your proposal trust me they will laugh at you and then tell you it won't happen not to mention who will sponsor such an expensive project knowing it would fail due to Unions and strikes unfortunately USA doesn't work like that

      @Lord Dracula AI is making headway in Walmart and Giant, cleaning the floors. They are working at McDonald's taking orders. They are working at Giant, checking out customers. How long, until they are picking fruit?

      @String Monkey AI is far away from the present and with the money farms produce is barely enough to sustain the farms much less buy or rent fancy technologies that won't be cheap and at that pace the technology is not even programmed for farming or harvesting, but I assure you it would not get to that point for 2 reasons:
      1- people would revolt arguing that robots are taking jobs wich would make the economic system crumble under the ideology of robots doing all the work how is that gonna create jobs and revenue for the people.
      2 AI systems will be widely used on Military and PMC (private military corporations) for the fact to contradict an attack and always be ahead on planning a strategic position and until AI is for use as you said on farms we probably be dead by then considering that farms are falling at a faster rate than the development of such expensive technology
