Can someone say a fatal PR blunder?
I will . .. . FATAL PR BLUNDER.

Which is exactly why Janet Murguia has been awfully quiet and is now allowing Louis[e] Guiterrez to do all of their whining, begging and pleading for Lou to cut them some slack..

Oops . . . they lost the war when they tried to get Lou Dobbs fired. Idiots that they are, had they done their homework they would have known that Lou is an independent corporate entity and they can't touch him with a 10 foot pole.

It's another attempt to hijack a thread so that the original topic falls by the wayside.
And, some gave their lives for the movement. I have a good friend, who used to be a minister, who marched with King and others. What's so strange or unbelievable about that?

I think what ibarrio is trying to say is , no logical reasoning person would read that email and equate it to the beginning of civil war. The fact that many on this thread agree with the OP is very telling indeed.

Mr. Common Sense

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense. Mr. Sense had been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge).

His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; but, could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, spilled it in her lap, and was awarded a huge financial settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by two stepsisters; My Rights and Ima Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

Do you not understand? Immigrants, illegal or no, are not your enemy - but do serve as a way to keep you distracted from the true problem - the multinational corporations that would have us all as serfs and that truly run your government.

Too late--------------the damage has been done.

Now it is past time to take out the trash (illegal immigrant lawbreakers and their enablers).

As for the greedy corporations; they will get 'theirs'-----------trust me.

blacknight04: thank you for your opinion that your side is losing---------big time.

You are grasping at straws here.

True common sense would be to close/lock the southern border, really crack the (law enforcement) whip against the illegals and their friends and do away with birthright citizenship for US born Anchor Babies (assuming that both parenst are here illegally)...............

My father and mother participated in the Washington, D.C. march in August of1963, something that I am extremely proud of.

Please thank your parents for me for their bravery and courage at such a brutally turbulent time in America. That is so awesome and you should be extremely proud of them. I am.

Thank you. They both passed away in 2005 but they set an example for us, their children that was became an integral part of our lives and was never forgotten.
