Initially my reaction to the video was that the Patriots should not have been shouting at the illegal-sympathizers, thinking that it only takes the Patriots down to the level of the sympathizers. However, during the video I heard one Patriot in a loud voice ask the question, “Can we afford it?” That profound question should be shouted from the rooftops!
I finally remembered to ask the wife about “Mickey Mouse”. I have learned something today.
The following is from the Cuban-Spanish dialect. I do not know if it holds true for all Hispanic countries:
“El Rata” is correct so that “Los Ratas” is correct. “Rata” refers to the very large rats that are bigger than Chihuahuas such as would be found in the New York sewer system. ;-)
“Raton” refers to rats such as would be found in residences but also refers to mice.
“Ratoncito” is, more or less, an affectionate/humorous reference. For example, if one would sneak a small piece of meat from the roast then one would say, “Un ratoncito stole a piece of the roast,” or if one would take a taste of the icing on a cake then one would say, “Un ratoncito took a taste of the cake.”
There is also a reference to very tiny mice. They are called “Guavitas”. Apparently, “Guavitas” are native to Cuba and are very tiny ‘mice’ because “Guava” is a tropical fruit and supposedly ‘guavitas” look like guava. ( ????? )
“Mickey Mouse”, the program and the cartoon character, are referred to as “El Raton Miquito”. :-)
I hope that this clears up the issue/confusion! LOL
Great information, boatbums thanks!
(late reply, I’ve been off the grid for a few days.)
In an exclusive expose regarding the immigration standoff in Murrieta, California, it was revealed by a confidential informant inside the Murrieta U.S. Border Patrol facility that the real reason busses stopped delivering illegal immigrants was due to a virtual mutiny within the U.S. Border Patrol ranks.
A recorded telephone interview with a highly credible and prominent Murrieta community leader on Sunday July 14, 2014 when it was revealed that frontline U.S. Border Patrol agents threatened to stand down if the Department of Homeland Security executed a plan to use force upon protestors [sic] if they impeded buses transporting undocumented immigrants into the Murrieta processing facility.
Most of the Border Patrol agents here at this facility are residents of Murrieta, and when they found out that the DHS was going to come in with riot gear, the agents declared that they would not obey any unlawful orders which violate the Constitutional rights of peaceful protestors. said the informant.
Our contact inside the U.S. Border Patrol told us that we do not even realize how impactful the protest was .it was a shot heard around the world .all the way back to Guatemala; Mexico, and not just the U.S. Government .the influx of immigrants coming over the border has decreased from 1500 per day down to 800 per day cut almost in half as a direct result of what weve done.
The front line U.S. Border Patrol agents are essentially refusing to perform any unconstitutional act upon the protesters, and they let their intentions be known to their superiors. As a result, the Department of Homeland Security could not proceed with delivery of another busload of illegal immigrants to Murrieta due to the lack of support by Murrieta Police Officers, as well as Border Patrol Agents who are stedfast in upholding their oath to defend and support the Constitution of the United States.
The reports have yet to be verified because numerous reports indicate that anyone who discusses whats happening inside of detention facilities or with the immigration process is being threatened with arrest.
However, the federal government backed down surprisingly fast when protesters started blocking roadways, which adds credence to this report because without local law enforcement or border patrol support, it would have been a difficult undertaking for the White House.
Thanks for chiming in Diver Dave!
There is a rally tomorrow in Fresno, part of the nationwide protest against Obama’s thousand-cuts to the border which is bleeding all kinds of crime and corruption and future voter fraud into our country.
We will be in Sacto, come out there if you can!
