This thread got moved to a national board by a moderator. It was intended as poking fun at Mayor Lou Barletta of Hazelton, PA. He made news with his desire to fine employers who employed illegal immigrants or more simply put, people not paying taxes.

With this post going national it makes it seems more bigoted than was ever intended.

Well I just opened it with my husband sitting next to me...Spick is more of a Puerto Rican insult....not a mexican slur. And he was very offended, as was I. Hell of a way to get your jollies.

Still, the images that someone captured of all that damage to public and private property should never be condoned. I don't care if you are American, legal immigrant or illegal. Defacing property like this is immoral even if it is your own because it damages the landscape and is unfair to other citizens who don't wish to view unsightly graffiti in their neighborhood.

Regarding the slur, whoever made the video shouldn't have put that in there. Without it the point of senseless destruction would have been more clearly made.

I agree, but that message is lost because someone thinks 'it is a big joke' in one corner, while folks like us are not listening cause we're to pissed off at the blatant attempt at racism. SO what good did it do, and whose cause did it help?

Duncan Hunter is a republican ..a veteran..and in my opinion the ONLY candidate who means business about this issue!!!!
Please see below


YouTube - Duncan Hunter on the Senate Immigration Bill

He initiated and did build the fence that is there and crime among other things was reduced by more than 80%!!!!
(I believe the number is at 90% now)

The media is not giving him the coverage he should have!!!!!

Sorry that you felt insulted. Immigration still needs to be properly enforced to ensure that we all pay taxes fairly

Sad, isn't it, Chefkey?

Rather than assimilate, the trend is to convert and/or drag down to the Third World Country they escaped.
