I was there. I saw it. It happened.
A real class act, huh?

Utterly. After that incident, the president of UT, one Robert Berdahl, banned Texas Independence Day celebrations because they offended Hispanics.

The next year, the YCT (Young Conservatives of Texas) handed out bunches of grapes on the South Mall on Texas Independence Day. Berdahl railed against them in the university newspaper, then was forced to apologize publicly for libelling them...he referred to them as "Young Crazy Texans" in print.

Some people never learn.

Default I don`t think it`s going to work.

After living many years in the southwest-and some years in Mexico-I`ve come to realize that this isn`t going to work; I trust my intuition. I`ve seen this before. Policy and taxiation will be eventually lead to a break up (balkanization) of My beloved country. I`m fed up with the antagonisim, the fricture of cultures, and the idea of even trying anymore is nauseating.

This is a fight worth fighting for; multiculturalisim does`nt work. It leads to violence. The government and buisness sectors know this- i.e. Bi lingual consumerisim, culture promotion, the apparent political power-Hispanic Americans-in literally stoping immigration enforcement. Thanks, we won`t forget that.

I feel your pain. I also live in the southwest. If only Americans living in mostly unoccupied territory in the rest of the nation could know what is going on out here they would be as livid as we are because the infestation is coming their way.

Don't know why this was necro'd, but this concept of "Aztlan" is hardly feasible and is ideologically nonsensical besides. It's derived from the fallacious "nation as a person" concept. In those terms, current U.S. territory was forcibly taken from "Mexico" and "Mexico" therefore has a right to repossess that territory. This ignores the fact that neither Mexico nor any other country in existence is a homogenous entity. Annexation of the U.S. Southwest by "Mexico" would place the territory under control of the Mexican government, which is at odds with emigrants. These people are leaving Mexico, a country where the ruling class is composed of white elites and the lower working classes are composed of Indians of full and mixed blood. The immigrants from Mexico would likely endure more suffering under such circumstances.

"Mexicans" do not have a "look," since "Mexican" (as with Canadian), is a nationality rather than a race. While the majority of Mexicans are Indians of full and mixed blood, as mentioned, there are numerous Mexicans of other races and ethnicities, and insisting that the majority have a monopoly over the term is exclusionary and inaccurate.

Correct: a Mexican is a citizen of Mexico irrespective of ancestry..........just like an American is a citizen of the USA

The former president of Mexico; Vicente Fox, he is of pure Euro bloodlines with no known indigenous lineage.

Aztlan, Mexico, blah, blah, blah. This is America and anyone who tries to change that, will see that they bit off more then they can chew.

B.T.W. 1751texan, it is lifetime and how about Martial Law? It has been around for a long time! I've highlighted an important interpretation in red and I think the most powerful two words are, THE PEOPLE!


United States of America
See also: Suspension"]Suspension clause
The martial law concept in the U.S. is closely tied with the right of habeas"]habeas corpus which is in essence the right to a hearing on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law enforcement by the judiciary. The ability to suspend habeas corpus is often equated with martial law. Article 1, Section 9 of the U.S"]U.S. Constitution states, "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."
In United"]United States law martial law is limited by several court decisions that were handed down between the American"]American Civil War and World"]World War II In 1878, Congress[/URL"]Congress passed the Posse"]Posse Comitatus Act which forbids military involvement in domestic law enforcement without congressional approval. On October 1, 2002 United"]United States Northern Command provide command and control of Department of Defense homeland defense efforts and to coordinate defense support of civil authorities.

On June 15, 1995, Norman Olson, along with militia leaders from other states, testified before the United"]United States Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism. Olson's opening statement included the following:

one other important point needs to be made. Since The Constitution is the limiting document upon the government, the government cannot become greater than the granting power. That is, the servant cannot become greater than its master. Therefore, should the chief executive or the other branch of government or all branches together act to suspend The Constitution under a rule of martial law, all power granted to government would be cancelled and differed back to the granting power. That is the people. And I'll conclude with this statement: Martial law shall NOT be possible in this country as long as the people recognize the bill of rights as inalienable.
