Geno's famous Philly cheese steak----Geno's is open 24/7.

How to order (in English only): The ingredients are simple and never greasy----thinly sliced rib-eye steak, melted cheese, oven-fresh baked bread and delicately grilled onions. Awaiting your piping hot sandwich on the counter outside are ketchup, mustard, relish and Joe's choice hot sauce. A Word of Warning! Be prepared and know how to order, because the service is fast and the line keeps moving. For example, on a cheese steak with onions specify which kind of cheese you'd like (Provolone, American or Cheese Whiz). By the time you have given your order, your money will be taken and your sandwich will be out the window nice and hot! At the next window you can pick up your soda, fries and coffee.

A sign on Geno's window gained press notoriety in 2006, during the immigration controversy. The sign reads: "This Is AMERICA: WHEN ORDERING Please 'SPEAK ENGLISH'" The Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations filed a discrimination complaint, arguing that Geno's violated the city's Fair Practices Ordinance, which prohibits discrimination in public accommodation, by "denying service to someone because of his or her national origin, and having printed material making certain groups of people feel their patronage is unwelcome." Vento had previously said the signs are directed at the Mexican immigrants in the surrounding neighborhood.On March 19, 2008, Philadelphia's Commission on Human Relations ruled that the restaurant did not violate the city's Fair Practices Ordinance.

Now if Conservatives will only BE Conservative and campaign/run as such ... we WILL take back the country.

Run for Congress and refuse to move from a "defund the NEA" plank (explaining how our kids are destroyed and made dumb by a planned, concerted effort) and you'll get voted in.

Pull an "abortion is murder" banner behind you ala Alan Keyes and do not waver, and you'll be voted in.


Too many Americans are afraid to be American, but many are awakening.

There's still hope.

Reagan used to say "abolish the Dept. of Education" all the time. Just watch his first inauguration.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky frequently mentions getting rid of the Dept. of Education.

Guess who took that plank out of the Republican's platform? Newt Gingrich in his "Contract With America" in 1994.

If it were not for the ‘distance’ of the drive, I’m there everyday...it’s a bit out the way from North Texas.

It was put up after a group were offended because staff could not speak Spanish.

Bears repeating. They were "offended"???

Save room for a stop at Lexington BBQ, everyone speaks English there and it’s the best in the area.

So is the rest of Texas. You could get there in about the same time as Beaumont but sooner than you could get to El Paso or McAllen.

That sandwich looks really disgusting. I’m sure it tastes great, though.

Language defines and molds cultures.
The left hates traditional American culture because it’s based on the Christian worldview and value system.

“Multiculturalism” is simply anti-Americanism.

The “language defines culture” concept was driven home to me when I studied some sign language with my kids. There is a whole deaf [sub]culture built on the American culture, defined by their different language.

Let's see who wins (/snix).

Phoenix Latinos will protest in Atlanta
"We are taking over this land and anybody who doesn’t like it should go back to Europe"

The Examiner | May 20th, 2011 | Miguel Perez
FR Posted Sat, May 21, 2011 by moonshinner_09

Georgia won’t be part of the proposed Latino homeland of Aztlán, but Latino civil rights leaders from Phoenix will march and protest in different parts of Atlanta next week for immigration laws they view as unjust. “Latinos won’t stay at the back of the bus anymore. We are taking over this land and anybody who doesn’t like it should go back to Europe,” says Jorge Serrano of Take Back Aztlán. “Racism should not be tolerated anymore in this country. Trying to get rid of Latinos is nothing but racist,” says Cecilia Maldonado of Chicanos Unidos Arizona, who will be meeting with Latino civil rights leaders in Atlanta to propose national boycotts.

There’s some unintended humor here also.

“Sin servicio” can be translated as “no toilet”.

Hey Cecilia, your charge of racism is out of context provocotism (can I say that?

No one is trying to get rid of anyone else.

America is a melting pot ... which means all the elements become one substance.

YOU want to be a Latino and nothing else.

WE are already American and WANT nothing else.

Melt or get lost.

Nice take....but read on.

They only look like they're mowing loans or flipping hamburgers..............the main occupation of these separatists is creating chaos to divert attention from the Third World they are building on US soil.

FYI Criminal Mexicans consider the United States an invader state---a foreign power imposed on Third World hellholes. They arrogantly refuse to refer to the US by its legal name. The US is known by Mexicans as el Norte, (“the North”), el Otro Lado (“the Other Side”), or Gringolandia (the “Anglo Entity”).

======================================

And we will also be contending with their plans to decimate the US of A from within with stolen college educations.

......these savages violate our borders on orders from their Third world handlers to (try to) take over the US......

The federales are salivating over looting the US treasury.

Freud would have a field day with these people----that "warrior" mentality shows a distinct lack of self esteem

They actually think we are "frail white people."

ROTFL. That's what the Japanese thought.

These signs remind me of a friend I had back in the 90's, Fred, who was from NYC. He was 'temporarily' in the Chicago area for a Construction Project (He wound up staying here for over two years).

He told me that 'back at home' he had a Tee Shirt that said:

Welcome To America
Now Speak F**king ENGLISH!
He lived in Queens and said he wore it all the time when he went out shopping or on errands.
(Fred had a 'slight drinking problem' so he was not averse to getting into 'verbal altercations')

*** They actually think we are "frail white people." .... ROTFL. That's what the Japanese thought. ***

It's also the same mistake the Mexicans made with Texans. And even if some of us are "frail white people", or 'old and frail'. Unlike these 'tough Mexicans' we know how to properly hold a gun and aim it.

*** Freud would have a field day with these people----that "warrior" mentality shows a distinct lack of self esteem ***

Freud would also have a field day with those people because that "warrior" mentality is all bullsh*t.

As until we 'stole all that land from them', for all intents and purposes, not a Mexican could be found North of the Rio Grande, and on the West coast they pretty much only went as far North as Los Angeles. That's because all of 'their land' was full of 'Savage Indians' who were REAL WARRIORS. It took us 'frail white people' to fight those Indians, and make that area safe and livable for everyone.

Granted I'm not up on my 'Mexican history'(/s) but I don't recall reading or hearing about any battles of Mexicans against Comanches, or against the Arapaho or Southern Cheyenne. And the Apaches had zero respect for Mexico and Mexicans. They used it as a sanctuary from the US Cavalry and the Apaches ran roughshod over those 'warrior' Mexicans.

So all that Aztlán talk is complete bullcrap. If that land belonged to anyone, it belonged to the American Indians, not Mexico or Mexicans.

No offense meant if I omitted a Native American Indian Tribe from the Southwest.
