Geez, I guess it isn't enough to grant millions of Mexicans here illegally our citizenship (not that it is going to happen) but we should show "solidarity" by giving them a special holiday also? How about we also build a statue to them and be required to genuflect everytime we go by it? The arrogance is astounding.

Maybe we should truly show our admiration of Mexico by adopting their Immigration Policies?

Start by putting the Military on the Southern Border?

I find it hilarious how "Cinco De Mayo" is celebrated more by "white Americans" guzzling Tequila than actual Mexicans! That was a small "skirmish" that had nothing to do with Mexicans becoming Independent!

Too bad Cinco de Mayo wasn't celebrated in County Mayo, Ireland. LOL Hell, maybe it IS in 2013.

FIFY


Cinco de Mayo should not be a recognized American Holiday. There's no need to show solidarity with all the illegal aliens who should be deported. Due to pathetic and vile liberals pandering for votes and a desire to build a permanent underclass that will always vote D they now have the potential to become citizens.

I'll celebrate Cinco de Mayo when Mexicans start hanging out in sukkot and lighting menorahs at Chanukah.

No idea why Purim never took off as a mainstream American holiday...it has drinking AND costumes. People get totally wasted at Se'udat Purim.

Since Mexico cant control their border rats I say we invade them on the 5th of may and kick their butts. Should take about an hour and make Mexico the 51st state. Now that would be worth while celebration.

Making Mexico a state would be a big mistake, IMO. All the concerns we have now would be multiplied ten fold. None of the above is going to happen anyway for various reasons.

Actually, Mexico controls its borders very well. It is our country that is lax. It is our duty to protect our own borders.

Come hang out with your Friendly Neighborhood Jew (TM) more often!

People whom I had never seen drinking...quite pious, observant Jews...would get blisteringly drunk on Purim. Technically you are supposed to drink until you can't tell the difference between 'cursed be Haman' and 'blessed be Mordechai', but as with all things Jewish you get 10 Jews in a room, you get 11 opinions on anything.

Purim is really fun though. I think everyone should celebrate it. Plus, hamantaschen (triangular cookies) are delish!

Cinco de Mayo? More like Cinco de LAME-O!
