Jamie considering we were never a Christian nation, one can't use that for pushing for a better country. if you wanted a better country go spread the gospel and that gospel isn't according to the Republican Party. Go read the URL links in the second paragraph of my post before yours.
Since this was turned into a political, admittedly partly my fault, but hey the article was about a mind-numbing potential problem, I just couldn't help remembering another mind-numbing encounter which might have had me voting for Wild Bill Clinton, if I hadn't stopped listening to Rush. I will put this up as gentle reminder to me, and to anyone else around.
I'm sorry to say that my comments aren't as memorable as they should be. But I have pointed out in the past that Rush Limbaugh was sometimes or at least appear to be a secret agent for the Liberals. I remember his one note samba attack on wild Willy Clinton, got so tiresome that I almost felt sorry for Clinton. I resisted that feeling and still didn't vote for him. So, I never had much of a kind word for Wild Bill etc. Sometimes PBS does have a good series -- however I often do not give them a blanket endorsement. I like the portions of the series, the Roosevelts, and intimate history, e.g., that covered the life of Theodore Roosevelt, a very good Republican. A pity that more GOPers don't copy him in some of his practices. I never even bothered to watch the whole section on Franklin. So I am NOT a mindless liberal -- or reactionary.
As I pointed out before, since all that I see here on SA but sometimes I even quote from right wing sources-- except the newamerican magazine, which I do avoid, I strive to see a balance on SA as much as anything else. There would be very little balance, unfortunately, if I didn't.
Penny made some interesting points such as those about The effect of illegal immigration on the ranchers that are living on the border. The BBC had an interesting article on this topic of Obama's action about immigration, Obama to press ahead on immigration, amid Republican anger. Some of the references made in the article via links are probably interesting also, but I have my doubts about the advertisements at the bottom of the page which can be safely and also at best be ignored.
Helen, this is what I got for a list? I would assume they're all in the same vicinity ? But the very last one on the list is the one that sticks in my memory. So it's been a spell since my family has been closely connected to Sweden. However, We certainly have quite a few people that trace their heritage back to Sweden and some towns that consider themselves the Swedish capital of Nebraska anyway.

However this town is what I think I remember that my relatives went to visit?
Helen, quite a few years ago some of my relatives went back there just to see how the land laid for our ancestors. One of the stories that was passed down to me is that my grandfather was told get out and walk when riding the wagon into town, apparently it wasn't uncommon for people to freeze to death who didn't take that action.
I'm just "great," keeping track of things :-7 I'll have to see if I can find that genealogy book for that side of the family. I got an relative I can email who can give me the name of the place, so I'll try post something tomorrow -- if not sooner.
Now, I don't if the President's actions will be taken to court and if anything will come of it. I just about as much control over what immigration policies are going to be as I do about Nebraska weather -- and that's zilch.

John Y., unlike Romish priests, q.v., The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood that neither magical powers nor a permanence of pastorship is thought to be conveyed during ordination. Protestant pastors should prove on a continuing basis, they deserve the title of pastor.
"The episode is also sure to raise doubts among swing voters about whether Republicans would be prepared to govern if they do win control of the entire Congress," the Journal's editorial board wrote. "Let's hope they spend August planning how to return in the fall like a party that looks ready to do something other than fight with each other." excerpt from http://www.businessinsider.com/wsj-editorial-republicans-immigration-deportation-daca-bill-vote-2014-8 That was an interesting report on what the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal said this summer. If you have seen my other posts in other threads before this one, you would have noted that I don't agree with everything that the administration has done. But then it should also be noted that I have no use for inmovable troglodytes aka Dixiecans.

Frank, this is awfully early in the morning to be blaming me for something! Butthere are a lot of people who would agree with President Obama. Considering Congress has been sitting on it stands for over a year anyway. When things like that happen, then action may be taken that one doesn't like. But, some people will.
