What a ridiculous comparison! You're REALLY grasping at straws with THIS one...

Is it? How about going into all those ghettos, do those look pristine to you? Grasping? No, pointing out truths is more like it.

You said festivals and big events, not ghettos. That comparison was, and still is, ridiculous.

Nice change of subject, though...

Apples to oranges.

You cannot compare the devastation being wreaked on America's desert environment by illegal aliens to slobs that miss the trash cans during a street festival, or even the lack of cleanliness in some neighborhoods.

Well, I suppose you can, but nobody will take such a skewed analogy seriously.

Ha, you TRY to call me out, but have you ACTUALLY done it? Nope. Have I called you on it? Yep. And to the others, yes I initially mentioned festivals & street fairs. So what, that was my initial thought. Notice you didn't react to my other post about ghettos....any thoughts? No, I didn't think so. You're so blinded by your focus on mexicans you can't see beyond that. You're all so sad....and stupid I might add.

Well, I reacted--and nothing from you. Why would that be? Perhaps it's because you're too busy focusing on bickering with people rather than posting anything tangible or meaningful.

By the way, name calling effectively ends any substantial debate--not that you actually seem to be participating in one.

My guess would be that this person's account has been suspended for violating TOS. That or he finally passed out....

Try again.

I am prejudiced against any illegal immigrant----------are you??

BTW: a legal immigrant couple named Jose and Maria Nahautl (probable Aztec/Mayan heritage) from Oaxaca, Mx are more welcome in my country than a group of Nordic White illegals from Sweden named Lindstrom.
