When people get to the point where routinely lying ,simply for convenience sale, becomes the norm, that society's best days are behind it.

How about arguing for the sake of argument? That's what it seems you are doing. And are we supposed to believe you are the reincarnation of Honest Abe or can't-tell-a-lie George Washington? [fantastical qualities ascribed by legend no doubt anyway]

I'll give you credit for bringing up the over-reaching law about lying to a federal agent though

Am I the last honest person? I certainly hope not.
I am amazed how easily people choose to tell little white lies when the truth is just as easy. Suggesting someone lie to a Federal Officer is disrespectful to our country and our way of life. A lock can stop a thief. Stopping a lie is harder.

Clearly, what we need is a wall along the Canadian border.
Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

Only if Mexico pays for it. As JFK airport historically has been the POE for many illegals entering the country, maybe we should just shut it down.

If you answer "No," and they later found out you lied you can get into big trouble. Kind of like knowing you are guilty and you plead Not Guilty only to be convicted and found Guilty and getting sentenced to 55 years in prison rather than pleading Guilty and only being sentenced to 25 years in prison.
