My dad is Dutch and I tell you, he DESPISES that country.

It is filled with prostitutes, drug addicts, suicidal people, and LAZY people.

Not only that, the Ducth are a minority in that country now and their immigration levels are WAY out of control. Crime is ranpant, rape being their #1 problem.

No one does naything about it. This is what they want to model the US after. It is disturbing, at best.

I guess the South American natives should have paid more attention to the North American natives.

I implore you to recognize the Church as a lady and in the name of the Pope take the King as lord of this land and obey his mandates. If you do not do it, I tell you that with the help of God I will enter powerfully against you all. I will make war everywhere and every way that I can. I will take your women and children and make them slaves....The deaths and injuries you will receive from here on will be your own fault and not that of his majesty nor of the gentlemen that accompany me "The Requirement", read by Spaniards (in Latin) to native tribes they encountered in the New World

Austraila is having the same problem...Aussies are almost the minority...

I'm glad we will be absorbed by Mexico. Hard working, honest people and they are registering to vote as conservative republicans when they ross the border...who would have guessed...?

Did you know that Vincente Fox's dad was from Ohio?

I think you're exaggerating just a tad there!

They shouldn't be registering to vote at all if they've just "crossed the border!"

He's a typical white guy. Indistinguishable from Joe Schmo on any street in America. Too bad his solution to all of Mexico's problems is to push those problems across the border!

Pretty nice article. Couple decades ago, western countries were accommodating the villains, or should I say the freedom fighters for political interest, now they are flooded with those guys.
France is facing a similar situation. Hard core extremist from North Africa have been granted political asylum in the last decade.
Well...like some say: sleep with dogs and you will wake up with flees.
