I know EXACTLY what you're sayin', and I agree. But others might take you to task..."Your post doesn't say anything about CULTURE..it just shows that different societies operate by different rules, and have different concepts of what's right and wrong"

I agree with your analogy, but you'll never reach SOME of our members, I'm afraid..."Culture? That's all about FUN things, not BAD things"...if you get my drift.

They have as many 'rights' as a brown illegal immigrant Mestizo from Oaxaca---------read that they need to leave the USA as well.

Immigration from sob is a whole new animal.

One young Mexican immigrant, Jose Hernandez, a 26-year-old carpenter, described the paradoxical culture shock he experienced on discovering that he had arrived in a Mexican community in East Los Angeles -- so self-contained that he could not even find anybody with whom he could practice speaking English. "When I first arrived in Tijuana I saw all these white faces, all these gringos," Hernandez said in Spanish. "I thought, 'That's what it must be like in the United States.' Then I came to East Los Angeles and I never see a white face."

Funny that the Irish should be looking to slide in under the radar when you consider that they recently voted to revamp their immigration laws and do away with birthright citizenship (one parent must be a citizen).

Irish, Polish, Martian, or Mexican--if you want to be here, do it legally. Otherwise, stay home!

Ireland is also having their own problems with legal and illegal immigration. Ireland is a small country with a small population. They're too fragile to accept scores of new immigrants. I think the European Union will be the death of their nation.

I guess if you don't count him calling me ignorant trash without any provocation from me you would be right. I had been ignoring his deliberate stalking and harrassment that entire day prior to this occurrence. Sorry he is by no means innocent of harrassment and name calling when you criticize the corrupt culture of mexico and its people. I have to strongly disagree.

No problem JDubs. I must have missed that.
