Christianity and Immigration

My friend Perry Eidelbus (of Eidelblog fame) recently wrote about my proposal for immigration reform. I thank him for vouching for me personally, and I can assure you that I am neither anti-immigrant, nor racist. I am for the rule of law.

There is a seeming discrepancy between the Christian charity we feel toward illegal immigrants and the need for strong immigration laws. We can love these people as our brothers and sisters, but that does not mean that we should encourage them to break the law. Christ himself believed in honoring the law:

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. (Mark 12:17)

I agree with Perry that we need a more sensible way to encourage legal immigration. My friend, Borsós Péter from Hungary, who has been trying for some time to obtain a visa, is a skilled and competent worker that would not be a drain to our system, and yet he has consistently been denied the ability to come here. Why can he not come, when thousands can break in with impunity?

We can love our neighbors, but we don't have to love their actions. We must honor, uphold, and sustain the law.

An anecdote for what it is worth.

When I was in high school, back when the dinosaurs roamed, I had a job (not that I don't now). My dad didn't believe in the 'Bank of Dad' and if I wanted money, I had to work for it. I worked in a local restaurant as a line cook. Most of the other cooks were Hispanics from El Salvador. I made friends with them and since I was taking Spanish in high school I was able to talk with them (somewhat).
The stories they told me were stunning. Armed gunmen, sometimes govenment, sometimes rebels, would come around and beat them up for fun. If they caught you eating, they would beat you up. If you resisted, they would kill you.

So what does one do? Wait for a visa to immigrate legally, or run for it? I wish there was a legal way to accomadate people like this but I can't find it in my heart to condemn them for wanting to come here. For the most part, they were good guys who just wanted a chance at life.

Just a little personal insight on my part. I'm aware of the national security issues of a pourous border but I can't bring myself to be too critical of the reasons some people come here illegally.

The terrorists, well, you can shoot them.

Say hi to Perry. I've been lurking about his blog. That is how I found this place.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
