      wader is comparing obscenity with immigration status.  

      There's room to criticize that (actual) comparison, but it's vastly different from what you're implying wader said.

      There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who fit into one of two mutually exclusive categories, and those who don't.

      GOP lawmaker: I know an illegal immigrant when I see one
      By Dave Klepper

      Democrats on Monday called on a Leavenworth County lawmaker to apologize for comments she made last week at a hearing on legislation to repeal a law granting in-state tuition to children of illegal immigrants.

      Rep. Connie O’Brien, a Tonganoxie Republican, was speaking in favor of rescinding the law when she recounted a story about a student she saw while enrolling her son at Kansas City Kansas Community College last year.

      . . .

      O’Brien replied: “Well, she wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian and she had the olive complexion.”

      Your claim of knowing obscenity when you see it - in the context for this comment thread - reminded me of this similar case, where a person's emotional reaction apparently trumped respect for the law.

      "So, please stay where you are. Don't move and don't panic. Don't take off your shoes! Jobs is on the way."

        What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
