Oh. Sorry. I had no idea you were such a fashionista.

Are you just trying to poke me into getting a negative response? Besides, its just a little joke. It's been in movies such as Dukes Of Hazzard.

Read this: Why aren't you supposed to wear white after Labor Day?

Perhaps Californio is a bit like me....a sophisticate hiding behind a somewhat rough facade. For instance, you might scoff at my choice of Ritz Crackers served with a topping of "fresh-from-the-can" sardines.....yet you may be surprised to learn that I'd instinctively know what wine to serve with such a repast..as WELL as what temperature to pour it at....AND, whether to wipe my hands on my shirt, OR my pants, at the conclusion of the meal.

Don't let 'first impressions' fool you..(burp)...!

Well, if it was in the Dukes of Hazzard then I most definitely have heard of it.

If we stop all immigration we will run out of the necessary "brain" power that we need to run the country.
What was the last time you checked and see how many foreign work visas are a must to allow highly educated people to work in our high tech industries. Our educational system either does not produce enough or good enough people. Immigrants will always be needed. We need to contol that number and stop all ILLEGAL immigration.

I just have to say that I don't care about a person's illegal status if they and their children are contributing to the community. It seems like some of you favor principle over practicality.
And the cost of those illegals staying?
Not only huge $$$ figures, but the breakdown of our identity and internal turmoil

I agree with you. These comments you referred to are someone else's I had copied and pasted to discuss them in a prior message when I was asked to prove those comments had been made. The Center for Immigration Reform has an excellent article about the huge cost of supporting illegals. See link below:

Center for Immigration Studies

With all the information available, I am left shaking my head and e-mailing my congressmen and women to stop this which you so correctly state is identity and internal turmoil, and ultimate demise of America. You just can't put two tons of stuff in a one ton truck.
