It's all about crops since that is the main industry. Having a winter frost is front page\ tv coverage big news. How much fruit\ nuts harvested each year is the main topic of local interest. Before there was cable tv the Central Valley only had a few stations to watch.

Yeah, but we have orange\ avocado trees! I don't think almonds would do well in Southern California [not enough cold temps when the trees need it].

Yep I hope they take over the southwest so they can save it from the evil white man and transform it into a mexican paradise like oasis that is tijuana or any part of northern mexico. Because if the southwest would've remained in the hands of mexico they would've created better cities than L.A, SD, vegas, phx. or built things like the hoover dam.

I speak Spanish fluently, by choice, and I'm pissed as hell that our schools are bilingual, Los Angeles - a once beautiful city, is quickly turning into a run down Mexican city, and I'm sick and tired of illegal aliens creeping into our country and sucking our systems dry. God Bless Jan Brewer- now if we can get other states to follow. Stop this "anchor baby" crap - DEMAND ENGLISH only in our schools and businesses, and quit sitting by while the illegals are ruining our great land and laughing in our face in the process. This is just one of the hundreds of videos out there - think it's just talk? Think again.


YouTube - La Raza Invasion


YouTube - L.A. Teacher Calls for Mexican Revolt in the U.S.
Notice not 1 person said the "boy" was racist for all his "N-word" screaming,but all a white person has to say is that we want the illegals to go home & then its all about race. I think peeps need to take their heads out of the sand & see whats going on.Like my son is told daily by illegals in riverside.."they are taking California back,One house at a time".Look how bad its gotten in the last 10 yrs..what'll it be like in 10 more..???
