What do you think about Anchor babies suing Pres. Obama to keep their illegal alien parents in the U.S.?

MIAMI (CBS4) ― Around 150 kids are filing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama to stop the deportations of their parents until Congress performs a massive overhaul of the U.S. immigration laws. All of the children are U.S. citizens and they argue their constitutional rights are being violated because they would likely have to leave the country with their parents.

Little boys and girls of all ages packed a rally at the American Fraternity on West Flagler in Miami holding a piece of the American dream, an American flag, in their hand. The assistant executive director with American Fraternity Mira Hernandez said, "A lot of these children are suffering economically, psychologically, emotionally. If they’re left with a single parent, a lot of them don’t have enough money to buy school uniforms."

The organization is helping these children who are United States citizens fight for the rights of their parents who are being deported because they are not citizens. "We are trying to avoid that; we’re trying to avoid these children being orphaned, being left without their parents," said Hernandez.

One of the smaller voices at the rally, 10 year-old Ronald Soza said, "I find it very unfair that they took my parents, ’cause they’re not criminals. I don’t understand why they should take them."

Soza’s mother was deported and he now lives with only his father. Soza is hoping the courts step in and put a halt to deportations. He said, "I think they should change the laws so they don’t take them."

Attorneys for the children said the parents came to the U.S. before a 1996 immigration law changed and made it more difficult for the parents to become legal residents.

The kids first brought the suit against former President George W. Bush’s administration. It was refilled in January in Miami.

One laptop that I am seriously considering is the Asus G51JX-A1

NVidia GTS 360M with 1gb GDDR5 dedicated VRAM
Backlit Keyboard
The Specs are amazing and it sells for about ,400
The only worry I have is the battery. Considering I want to use it for classes, I was hoping for something that could last a while, and the Asus only has a battery life of a miserable 1 hour. Although, a friend of mine told me that, with the i7 processors, that I could pull of 3 hours if only using internet and Word.

Any opinions on the Asus, or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you =)
Also, how does this G51JX-A1 compare to to Asus G60JX and the Asus N61JQ-X1? Which one is best/worst?

Why are people not up in arms over arabs being racially profiled at airports,but suddenly irate over Hispanics?

I mean, both set off all kinds of moral red flags, and both claim they function on ‘reasonable suspicion" not ethnicity.

I’m a Canadian-born, atheist (which may sound a bit redundant to some americans:P). I Don’t believe in Islam, let alone killing innocent people over it. However, when I go to the airport, I’m flagged for my name often times. While I’m blue-eyed, freckled with blond hair, my brother turned out differently and has tan skin, with dark hair and eyes and he get pulled aside even more often. We’ve asked; we’re not on any list nor are our full names similar to any persons of interest. My mom (Irish) named both of us after our uncles so our first names are western. They just mark anyone with an middle-eastern *last* name — more so if you "look the part" like my bro’.
In short, I’ve seen racial/ethnic profiling in practice. I’ve experienced this "’reasonable suspicion’ not ethnicity" BS — I’m not buying it.

I’m almost positive hispanics will be singled out with this Arizona law.

Sure, racial profiling MAY be effective at protecting the boarder states, but if you allow the morals [regarding equality] of the country to disintegrate, WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU PROTECTING?

How much should I offer for a used Saab?

I am looking at a used 2008 Saab 9-3 Aero. It’s a beautiful car with pretty much all of the options except navigation. The interior and exterior are both in near perfect shape. The only problem is that its classified by its home state of Oklahoma as a rebuilt vehicle, which eBay has flagged as salvaged as well as two minor flaws involving a cup holder and the headlights not "cornering." I don’t really have a problem with that, but I don’t know what a good asking price would be for this vehicle. Kelley Blue Book doesn’t provide price standards for salvaged/rebuilt vehicles and the "Buy it Now" price on eBay is ,999. Please help

My wife cheated on me and I forgave her but…?

Long story. We got married after dating for 2 years in high school. We were both only 18 years old and still in our senior year. The crazy thing is my parents don’t know about it but hers do because we got married so that we could stay together through college. See, she came from another country when she was 2 but her parents never bothered to get her documentation aside from a passport so she was totally screwed for her future cuz she couldnt get a real job or go to college. I love her very much and i knew the only way we could stay together was if we got married cuz i was going away to college and she could only come with me if she could go to school and work as well. So we did. We got married last April, and things were great for awhile, but then I went away for 6 weeks for my first summer semester at school, 7 hours away from where i lived. She thought i was abandoning her and thought i was being an asshole, and in all fairness i kinda was cuz i thought she wasnt respecting the fact that i had a great opportunity to go to a good school. However, about 2 weeks after being up there, i notcied she started talking to an ex from a really really long time ago, like when she was a freshman in high school. However, they only dated for 2 weeks and i talked to her about it and she said theyre just friends and i believed her cuz i trusted her. Then, as time went on, she kept talking about him a lot, and he would buy her food, and eventually a fucking iPod which was a huge red flag for me but she just called me paranoid and a jerk. They even went on little dates, which she had no problem telling me about, so i assumed "how could she be hiding something from me if shes telling me everything they do?" see, my wife has no friends cuz they were all either mean deep down inside and didnt care about her, or she chose to cut them out of her life. So, i was actually glad she had a friend to do stuff with while i was gone. Eventually i went back home after the semester, and i could tell things were a little different. She was acting more like a good friend with me than a lover or a wife. I thought it was just playful and the kind of strangesness of not being around someone for awhile, but then once we moved back up to my college together and started living together, things started getting strange. She would talk to him nline all night, long after i had already fallen asleep. I would get upset about it and she would just say she couldnt believe how jealous and threatened i was. Then, i had to fly back to my home state where i was born for a dual memorial because both of my grandparents past away around the same tie last year, and about 20 minutes before i got on the flight, my wife’s best friend from her childhood sent me proof that she had indeed been fucking her ex. I confronted her about it via instant messaging and she broke down. She admitted to it, apologized profusely. I thought i was having a panic attack when i read the conversation that proved she was sleeping with him. I went off on her of course, telling her i fucking hated her and how could she do that to me. However i didnt tell her (and i forgot to mention whilst writing this story) that i had an inebriated one night stand with a friend from elementary school whom i reconnected with at college. We did not have sex but we fooled around a little bit, and my wife always told me "if you just kiss another woman, dont tell me, its a waste. Only tell me if you sleep with someone" so naturally i didnt tell her. In hindsight, i shouldve told her then and there but i was too furious and in total shock for the thought to even enter my head.

Basically thats as much of the story i can get on here without writing a whole novel and killing myself afterwards.

So, we’re still together, she found out about what i did a few months later, threatend to leave but i convinced her to stay, went to therapy to burn the thoughts out of my head of her with another man, but we still have problems.

My main reason for writing all this is this- its fairly obvious that since her affair my wife has found me much less sexually attractive. Our sex is much less frequent and she doesn’t seem to want me as bad as she used to. Now i asked her after her affair "was he better then me? did he have a bigger dick than me?" to which she always replied no but part of me thinks she just didnt want to crush my ego and self esteem any more. However i cant help but think she doesnt enjoy our sex as much anymore (even though she always climaxes, and believe i can tell shes not faking!) because she is comparing it to the lustful, passionate sex she had with her ex in her own head. What the hell do I do? If I confront her about it shell probably just breakdown and cry and want to leave me cuz its been a while since her affair and shell think i havent forgiven her. Please help, ive run out ofoptions, hence why im putting this on fucking Yahoo Answers

Hey Yahoo Answers!! Give me back my 10 points!?

I just got flagged and docked 10 points because I asked a perfectly legitimate question. My question stated that my parents are using a bootleg copy of Windows XP, and AFTER buying a 99.99 legal copy at WalMart he noticed it said upgrade on the side. So I told him I’d ask the community here on what to do, to see if he needed a different copy. Within minutes I was told that I needed the full version which costs 129.99, I told him, and he’s at WalMart right now making a purchase. Than Yahoo’s team decides I need to be flagged since I used the innapropriate "pirated copy of Windows" in my question, and I got flagged and docked -10 points.

Was my question even read by a human being? Is this completely stupid?

Why do douches always pretend they're "telling it like it is" and "just not sugar coating things"?

Being a rude arrogant jerk does not make you "tough" or "hard-hitting" or "edgy", it just makes you a jerk and probably a moron. For instance. How come every time you try to ask a legal question on yahoo answers about why a state as a certain odd law, the "realistic" people come out telling you to "stop complaining and move somewhere else"?

How come every time you ask a question about why something doesn’t work, some "realistic" douche comes out of the woodwork, once again, and instead of simply explaining to you HOW to get this product to work, they feel like they HAVE TO remind you that "you chose to buy the product" so it’s "your fault", even though in your original question you didn’t place the blame on anyone. Noone here was playing the blame game except for the "realistic" moron who thought he had to "tell it like it is" to the question-asker.

Like right now, I’m asking a question. I want an answer to this question. WHY do people do this? If you don’t have an answer your response will be flagged. This makes people angry for some reason, but I don’t understand why. I already know one of you morons is going to respond with "stop whining". I’m not whining, I’m asking a question. And this is "Yahoo answers" not "Yahoo you’re not allowed to express dislike for anything or your a whiner".

Yes, I complained about some state laws I thought were stupid. But I ALSO reiterated that I am making positive changes to influence change in this. So this person had NO RIGHT to respond with "move somewhere else". I shouldn’t be told to move simply because I disagree with one thing my state does, and because I voice my disagreement. His answer was promptly flagged for not being an answer.

Once again, the name of this site is Yahoo ANSWERS, and because his reply was not an answer I had every right to do this. Will somebody please ANSWER my QUESTIONS instead of giving me cranky "comebacks" this time? Why do people get so angry when I tell them, in my question, that non-answers will be flagged?

It’s like they’re trying to be "tough".
THANK YOU Vulgar display. That’s actually the first time I ever got an actual answer to a question about this subject LOL. What you pointed out was the whole "anonymous effect" as I call it, and that would definitely be an influence.

CONS: Now that the US buys nothing but Chinese products could it be time to start reviving US manufacturing?

In the weeks following 9/11 34.8 million dollars in sales came from Chinese made American flags.

Wal-Mart is the largest retailer/grocery store/corporation in the history of planet earth and sells pretty much nothing that’s made in the states. Wal-mart is also trampling all over the world of mom-n-pop shops.

Republicans had just as much to do with NAFTA as Clinton did so please think twice before using that card.
