We did one thing here, we showed that you are not a Westerner.

You may be truthful or not, but, you are an easterner.



Immigration issues are federal, local police have no jurisdiction.
As I said, I am not prejudiced against anyone legally in our country who puts this country first. I live in Calif. now but I was born in Michigan. I have lived in Calif. for decades now.

With the deepening recession: more and more Americans (of any race/ethnicity) are looking at illegal aliens as the criminals as they are. And; quite frankly, said hostility is also being directed towards known Anchor Babies.

You shouldn't make death threats though. It's not okay to tell people to watch out for their lives. You shouldn't advocate violence against people. This is not in touch with reality.

About the only thing keeping people from rioting in the streets is the extension of unemployment benefits. Once those run out..............

No. You do know that temp work and part time work is up...a leading indicator on job growth (meaning that initially these jobs go up first then full time jobs). So again your claim isn't based on facts. Temp employment edges up - Handling Hard Times : The Orange County Register

I initially heard it on NPR, but a Google search found this.

Californians have since shortly after the conquest considered the Mexicans a lessor race. The old joke is, how does a Mexican become Spanish, when your daughter begins dating him.

Even today, the great majority of Mexican Anglo alliances occur among the poor. The middle class in California still has a problem with their daughters dating people of Mexican descent. I am guessing, that unless you are one of those "liberals" (and you do not sound like a liberal) that in actuality you would indeed have a great problem.

One doesn't have to be a liberal to not hold prejudices.

Judging by the amount of off topic bashing, this thread has lived long enough.
