You do mean most legal Mexican-Americans.

Whoever the guy in the truck was, it seems he did a lot more to upset all those people then simply waving a flag out his window.

I don't know how I ended being the quoted one you responded to but that wasn't my post. I am anti-illegal immigration and agree that the border should be militarized.

Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. And the slogans were all flown in the last war....

I recently re-read this whole thread...yes a fit of insomnia will do that. I see some encouraging things through all the frustrations and assumptions. People discussing issues with all the challenges of communication, disagreements and different ideologies among them. This is America and this is what we are allowed to do without looking over our shoulders in fear.

I have a few things that came to mind from this...

Politicians do a great job campaigning...selling us on their agendas if you will...It's a shame they don't seem to be able to deliver on their promises nearly as well.

Silence is consent. If you don't go out and use your voice (voting, running for office, protesting, editorials, City Data posts etc.) there is little or no use in complaining.

Being oppressed is a sad state of being but perhaps even sadder is believing you can do nothing and then well...doing nothing...

They don't deserve ANY respect. They & their people are apparently too weak-willed to get together and fight to make THEIR home country a better place. Much easier to do it the lazy way & sneak into another country illegally & act like a bunch of spoiled children demanding to be taken care of.

Really. Do you think this is an accurate portrayal? Do you consider yourselves well informed? Openminded? Compassionate?

Why sir, yes I do! I call it how it is. And at this point all these idiots are doing is throwing a fit like a 2 year old right now, because they are BREAKING THE LAW, and getting called on it!

This all may be true...but what are your sources? I don't trust any of the mainstream media outlets. Many of the people commenting here complain about biased media but are getting much of their info. from guess what? Biased media...What say you my fellow American?
