It would be nice if her husband could wheel her into a session of congress to address the morons.

What do you call people who are more concerned about deportation than a human life? Cowards.

Are these the type of people we want in our country? Is this an aspect of culture, running from the law? Are we to respect this, if it is indeed cultural?

Why are you constantly trying to associate law breaking to Mexican culture?
Do you know how many Mexicans there are in the world? What is the ratio of them doing these kinds of things?
Do you know if the level of DUI/Hit and Run of white people is a large deviation from that of Mexicans?

I am not trying to argue the guy is not a criminal, but please stop with the whole association to culture thing.

Observation, that's how.

My city certainly is not representative of the country, but when a hit and run is reported on the news, the description invariably is hispanic.

No, I won't stop describing what I see to be cultural aspects.

How's this one: At a former workplace, the Mexican immigrants (legal and illegal) would put used toilet paper in the trash can, which was next to the toilet, rather than flushing it. When I and others complained, we were told, "That's the way they do it in their country." This was a restaurant for pete's sake. Nothing was done (I should have called the health department, but that's irrelevant). I was forced to accept used, feces ridden toilet paper staring me in the face every time I used the bathroom.

That is a cheap shot, their sewage system is not up to our standards, many simply forget that they can flush here.

But I understand your problem with that and they need to learn it, I am really surprised the restaurant doesn't enforce it. They will fail the next health inspection with that going on. I don't know if that is really a culture thing as it is just a poor thing.

Have you heard how most of the illegal construction workers just take a dump in the dirt rather than use the port-o-potties? It's a real problem.

Also I was watching a renovation show where the workers kept going underneath the house in the crawlspace and they had to clean it out...

this past summer while at the lake, which is in a state run park and has a nice sandy beach area, this mexican lady.. maybe in here middle 20's, took off her babies diaper and just threw in on the beach, then the kid squated and took a crap right there as well.. why she didnt wait before taking off the diaper I dont know.. why she didnt take the kid into the restroom, i dont know. but i did go over and yell at her,, she didnt seem to understand, didnt speak a word of english, so I went over to the DNR office and told them. They made her clean it up then kicked her out of the park. Now to me, everyone in america should know you just dont do that! it was really discusting.

No license, no insurance + hispanic name = Illegal alien? Is that your inference?

Or am I missing something?
