    Want to know how to spot a racist? Wait for a comment like, “YES!!! GLAD THEY DID IT THE RIGHT WAY AND DIDNT TRY TO SNEAK IN ILLEGALLY.”

    1. Were Full

      We are full and need no more. Should all be by lottery and 50 is more than enough. Hope they are not receiving food stamps, and Medicaid.

      How many immigrants in Ulster County on welfare?

      Go back home, and stay there, were full.

  4. Alexander Hamilton

    “Their natural abilities are as good as ours.” I wrote, and did I mention that not only did I never own slaves, but I was pro-Abolistionist and actively and actually helped to end slavery in New York?
    You new citizens, take note. In my time, being a bastard had social implications in England that America never possessed.
    I’m on the $10 bill, Jefferson only on the $2.
