I am certain the Democrats are also doing their share but it is really difficult for me to uncover it as easily because of my biases. You know, it is easier to see through other people's bs than it is to see through your own.

Sorry for deleting that post. I did not see you had quoted it or I wouldn't have. I did because I didn't want to dominate the conversation and it also felt like I was discussing people and not the issues in that second paragraph.

And incidentally, by "illegals" are you referring to all illegal immigrants or just those of the Hispanic variety? Because there are also many Asian, African and other "illegals" in this country.

In my view Castro was and probably still is the best candidate for Mayor that we've had in awhile with the exception of Hardberger. So if he runs again he'll likely get my vote.
No, what I was implying is that I have a deep-rooted mindset for those who commit crimes who should not be here in the first place. If a person, from whatever country, wants to become a citizen and go through the proper procedures I am okay with that. This country was built by immigrants from all walks of life and all colors. When undocumented people from any country other than the US infringe on the rights of American citizens that gets my blood boiling. Actually, the infringement of anyone's rights by another is upsetting to me. Sidenote-has anyone been keeping up with the Wolffs? Fighting like a bunch of schoolgirls. That entire city council needs an overhaul b/c I do not think they know what is best for this city based on some of their recent decisions. Embarassing!

I'm with you. Call me a cynic, but I wonder what was the real motive for changing the name of Durango Blvd. Was it to honor Mr. Chavez's legacy or to create one for Phillip Cortez?

My answer was meant to be q: since you mentioned the possibility of this person getting a statue and I was like, "who?", indicating a total unknown doesn't deserve a statue.

But as they say if you have to explain the joke it isn't funny anymore.

The reason I actually topped this thread was because Gabriel Velasquez is at it again. For those interested in District 3 there are some interesting goings-on here with the candidates.
