My neighbor is a retired cop, and a VET and he's sick to death of all of this mexican flag waiving crap and the disrespect they're showing our flag. So, he bought a huge mexican flag off ebay and plans to set it on fire in his front yard on July 4th.

It cracked me up when he told me what he was going to do.

What sickens me about this video is they're going to American schools, most likely getting their school meals, books, clothing, immunizations and tuition for free, and they hate America? "Viva La Mexico" I heard them shouting as the crowd walked away. Why are these ungrateful illegals living here?

It appears that things have calmed down since July 4th, 1996.

Eddie, Eddie...please do your homework before making such blatantly inflammatory and patently false accusations against nearly 30% (self-identified) of the U.S. population.

Gallup: Tea Partiers are Fairly Mainstream in Their Demographics.

Quote:
PRINCETON, NJ -- Tea Party supporters skew right politically; but demographically, they are generally representative of the public at large. That's the finding of a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted March 26-28, in which 28% of U.S. adults call themselves supporters of the Tea Party movement.

Tea Party supporters are decidedly Republican and conservative in their leanings. Also, compared with average Americans, supporters are slightly more likely to be male and less likely to be lower-income. In several other respects, however -- their age, educational background, employment status, and race -- Tea Partiers are quite representative of the public at large.
