You are just not right.

BTW, there is no such thing as a "full-blooded American" as American is not an ancestral designation, but a geographical designation.

Point well taken, I am from the east coast and our Spanish is diffrent, mostly portoricans, cubans, Venezuelans, their food however out of this world, much better and diverse than meso-american.

I concur with your opinion of Cuban food. It is delish. I wouldn't say it's necessarily better--just different (in a really good way).

FYI - órale vatos is thought to have first developed in the Chicago area.

And take a look around you: the stream of illegal aliens is reversing course---------they are fleeing the USA in droves.

Arizona is becoming a hellish place for illegals.
