I'm calling you out on that one. You can claim it all you want....I will never believe it. What you write...speaks volumes about you.

And answer my question ???? where does it speak about WAR. You do know what a WAR is? You do know what a MORATORIUM is? That is what the email you posted is calling for...

You were saying? OOPS. That was not my original quote. Those are your words NOT MINE.

OMG I love Garretts. A few months back a coworker had some she brought back after visiting family in the Chicago area. I had both the caramel and the cheese. It was yummy!

You bring the Garretts and I will be there with ya!

You haven't lived until you try them mixed together. I'd love to share with you Nic. Sadly, they will be going out of business soon. They sell it at John's but it's no where near as good.

Topic: That "Latina" march is going to ignite some serious fire works if they go down there messing with small town America. I hope they all wear a good pair of American made running shoes because they are definitely going to need them.

It's another attempt to hijack a thread so that the original topic falls by the wayside.

Americans of different races and backgrounds came together then and we are all coming together now. We are Americans. We will not let the blood shed in the American Revolution, The Civil War and the Civil Rights movement have been shed in vein. We are Americans and we are united to save our country from this illegal invasion.

At the end of the day, you're 100% right. We are Americans and this is OUR COUNTRY and that's what matters most.

Quebecois-like autonomy would not be what those who renounce American sovereignty overall would settle for: even now, La Raza is more strident than that compromise...
The above, on topic. And if you want to espy genuine hatred, you should see how the foreign nationals in Los Angeles mad dog (glare with deliberate malice) American citizens here in own country. Not enough? Foreign nationals throwing eggs at anyone who doesn't look like their identical ethnicity during their protests against American sovereignty Federal law enforcement in L.A. Not enough? Foreign nationals spitting at me, a middle-aged caucasian female as I walk by. To what do you want this to escalate? Actual physical violence?

This country has worked too long and hard to dispell this sort of solipsistic race-narcissism to see it return by foreign nationals who think they are the only people that matter. I am old enough to have seen actual bigotry first-hand in the Deep South in the 1950's/60's, and it's deja vu all over again with the organization quoted in the OP. Excusing deliberate lawbreakers like illegals because of, the organization's own emphasis- "race" is akin to excusing similar declarations by the Ku Klux Klan: both are wrong as can be in this country.

Wow . . just wow. California needs a revolution, yesterday. Chicago has become a tax burdened IA war zone thanks to its sanctuary status. It's a good thing DHS stepped in to sue them it was getting totally out of control. It was so bad the governor was looking into bringing in the National Guard.

I am sorry things are that bad for you.

You guys on the Coast must be inheriting some of our illegal immigrant riff-raff----------Arizona is certainly emptying out.

I could not run very fast when I was pregnant. Or pushing a stroller.

I have a feeling if they've had the prequisite 5-10 kids already, and are on welfare, they won't even be in as good of shape as you were. Here's hoping dodging bullets in their respective hoods at least has them in shape to power walk. They are going to need all the speed and agility of an olympic sprinter.
