Others have pointed out that you are wrong concerning whether the violence is 'unprovoked'. I submit that you are also wrong in saying that the GP is trying to justify this behavior. He is not. He's predicting it. And explaining the genesis of it.
You sound like you've spent a lot of time thinking about this.
I looked around a bit and saw a few citations that back your assertion that "Parents of children born in the U.S. are not allowed to stay here just because their kid is a citizen" Do you know of any firm numbers? Say the number of births in the US with non-citizen parents? Of perhaps more interest to me would be the numbers of deportations of these parents. And are the children returning to the home country of the parent(s) or are they staying in the US and entering various foster care situations?
Having known a wide variety of Americans, I know of none that would work in the fields, a phenomenon that has also been seen in the news many times.
I submit your 'wide variety' is far less diverse than you imagine. Get out of your suburb.
What a complete moron. I used to actually have at least a LITTLE respect for Greenspan, but seriously?
You should be more circumspect about people who not only view Ayn Rand as a brilliant thinker, but a sex object as well.
Advertising must cater to the poor, wise, rich, foolish, people with spots, or smoking joints,
If I had my way, I'd have all of them shot.

Many who oppose homosexual behavior also oppose some of the items on your list, especially vasectomies and tubal ligation. Does the gender reassignment surgery really even need to be addressed in regards to this?
In fact, the only one of interest that you mentioned was intercourse with post-menopausal with. IIRC, this is usually explained as being more or less a gift to the couple for being in a union. There's a bit more to it, but you have to accept the postulation that marriage is a joining of man and woman under God.
People who are absolutely at the top of the scale in 1925, for instance, would be getting food stamps today, said Greenspan.
Has Greenspan blown the dust off his Rolodex lately? I can't think of anybody with the last name "Rockefeller" or "Vanderbilt" in 2014 that's hurting for cash.
"If we're not going to educate our kids, bring in other people who want to become Americans," said Greenspan, in arguing for an increase of H-1B workers.
H-1B is not a path to citizenship, apparently by design. Green card holders can say "Screw you, I quit" without deportation, which is not what companies want when they reach for H-1B's.
In the context of income inequality, Greenspan put the H-1B program in his light: If the program were expanded, income wouldn't necessarily go down much, "but I bet you they would go down enough to really make an impact, because income inequality is a relative concept.
H-1B's are competing for the bottom. Executives don't bring in indentured servants to be their own replacement, nor are meaningful numbers being placed into "rock star" slots (rock stars can command perks like actual green card status anyway). H-1B's only drive down the wages of the bottom, not the top, exacerbating wealth disparity.
Spoken like someone who thinks his situation is everyone's.
I think it's called 'Slashdot Disease'. The symptoms are particular apparent whenever the topic of tablet computers comes up.
At some point in your career, everyone is their own snowflake. I'm never going to compete against a candidate that is my equal in every other way but has a degree.
I'm fortunate to be a programmer, though, because it's one of the few industries that has woken up and seen what a worthless institution our higher education system has become.
Some of them also do independent work; but others (in terms of customer base and income) are basically federal employees in all but name and price.
And union protection.
