Just sayin.
There were no immigration restrictions prior to 1830. It had very little affect on our culture. Assimilation was the culture. Like minded settlers who shared a common bond. Liberty was the goal.



POPULATION IN AMERICA
1640 25,000
1660 80,000
1689 200,000
1721 500,000+
1743 1,000,000+
1767 2,000,000+
Revolution 2.5 million
1790 (1st Census) 3,929,000

1790-1820 250,000 immigrants/yr

early 1820s 10k-12k/annually
late 1820s 20k/year
1820 - beginning of immigration statistics
1830 - FREE IMMIGRATION ENDS AND A NEW SENTIMENT BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN RELATION TO IMMIGRATION

IMMIGRATION STATISITCS (State & Federally Regulated)
1837 79,000/year
1842 100,000/year
1854 428,000/year
1873 459,000/year
1882 789,000/year
1907 1,285,000/year
1914 1,218,00/year

5 Periods of Immigration until 1927

1. 1st settlement of the colonies 1607-1783. At this time the states were established and immigration had little influence on the culture (language and customs) of these states

2. 1783-1830 - Free Immigration (Immigration becomes a national problem)-period of small immigration - no government control

3. 1830-1882 - Period of Agitation and State regulation - IMMIGRATION SENTIMENT CHANGES
4. 1882-1917 - FEDERAL CONTROL - INDIVIDUAL SELECTION
5. 1917-1927 - FEDERAL CONTROL - GROUP SELECTION AND RESTRICTION

The last 100 years on Immigration policies

6. 1924 - Border Control created by Congress - DEPORTATIONS
7. 1933 - INS was created
8. 1940 - Immigration and Naturalization Services transferred from the Dept. of Labor> DOJ
9. 1940-50s - Humanitarian Relief

10. 1952 - Immigration and Nationality Act - removed all racial barriers to immigration and naturalization and granted the same preference to husbands as it did to wives of American citizens. However, the INA retained the national origins quotas.

11. 1954 Operation Wetback - DEPORTATIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS (deportation of communists, subversives, and organized crime figures)

12. 1951-1968 Bracero - Mexican seasonal workers - NON IMMIGRANT WORKERS

13. 1965 - Congress replaced the national origins system with a preference system designed to reunite immigrant families and attract skilled immigrants to the United States.By the mid-20th century, the majority of applicants for immigration visas came from Asia and Central and South America rather than Europe

14. 1980 - Refugee Act of 1980

15. 1986 - Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986. RCA charged the INS with enforcing sanctions against United States employers who hired undocumented aliens.

16. 1990 - The Immigration Act of 1990 (IMMACT 90) 3 separate categories: family-sponsored, employment-based, and “diversity” immigrants selected by lottery from countries with low immigration volumes

17. 2001 - 2018 Post 9/11 - Homeland Security Act of 2002 Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement,U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (ICE),

18. 2016-2024 Trump

I keep the sh$t handy just for soy infiltraitors who spout their open border/immigration nonsense.

Here's a short video that summarizes things today.

Indentured servants for the most part were not brought here against their will.

How did a thread about getting bumped from the rear morph into a discussion of immigration?

Illegal immigration is about getting bumped from the rear to the front of the line.

Do they not teach people to stop far enough back that you can still see the rear bumper of the car in front anymore?
It generally leaves 10' of space, plus that's a nice buffer in case someone rear ends you, hopefully you won't be pushed into the car ahead.

People are dumb

Now my question lies on, should I need to worry? Both times the car was so low that their hood merely bumped my lower part of the tire with the cover on.

I double checked everything and looks good so far. Wheel, tire and door looks good.

why cant ppl keep their distance for once? I am glad it was on bumper to bumper traffic. Imagine if we didnt had the spare there?

Don't know how you drive, so you deiced if it applies. First of all whoever does the hitting is 99% their fault. Next is what can you do to minimize you chance of being rear ended.

Do you follow closely in stop and go resulting in you hitting the brakes quickly? Can you leave more space with out someone else cutting in front of you, so you can drive slow instead of start/stop?

Do you use your brakes to the extent that the brake lights become meaningless? Example I see drivers tailgating a slow driver and hit their brakes every few seconds. Following them one realizes that they are not really braking but slowing down only 1 mph so they can then speed up and tailgate again. Then all of a sudden the car in front does slow down to make a turn and the car in front of me hits the brakes hard. Seconds are lost while I realize that he is really braking this time.


Do you pump your brakes? I see this a lot. Someone hits their turn signal and is also pumping the brake pedal. This results in not just the signal flashing, but the other lights too. Makes is hard to figure out what they are really up to with all the lights blinking..


Lastly, maybe try a bigger 3rd brake light. Might help them see you better.


Not saying that you are a bad driver or anything, just some things I have seen. No accidents here in the past 30 years.

This tread has gone so far off track that I don't really want to post here. But in an effort to get back on track I will say I just ordered a WeatherTeck Bumper Hitch Mounted Step.

It will hopefully help if the "I have to look at my phone every 2 minutes" idiot bumps me from behind I will have some protection.

Also, after changing the tire on my wife's Wrangler a couple of weeks ago it will help my almost 70 year old back dismount the spare tire.

Ok, get back to your politically correct or not discussions.

Do we have moderators here? Just asking.

Peace out.

I was recently on a jury for a civil case involving a rear-ending accident by an elderly woman.

This kind of crash will become more common as the population ages.

You ain't kiddin'.

I have a great corroborative anecdote that I'll share beside a fire and over a beer but won't put on the interwebs. Elderly story. Florida story. God's waiting room.

If someone hits me in the rear while their head is up their dark place I can almost guarantee it will hurt my neck and/or back. If I see them coming I am going to plant the brakes to the floor. If I get pushed into the car in front of me, I'll be leaving skid marks in several places. If my JK is totaled, their car will be pushed back to the windshield. They will buy me a new JL.

I apologize to bring this topic. I guess I was venting that it happened twice in short period times. And frustrates me that is when we are all stuck in traffic for so long that after some time I feel the bump. But I am thankful for the spare, it did 'spared' me some more headache.

At 76 I don't have trouble getting the spare off, gravity takes care of that, but getting it back up can be a hassle. The Beaver Step I have really helps with that. In fact when I did my 5 tire rotation on the Chief, I had to go and remove the step from my TJ to help get that tire back on. And it the original equipment LT255/75R17, not an oversized tire. I wouldn't have a prayer of getting one of those on.
