Travis - let it go. The kid was either on/off his med's or had been drinking or not thinking... Or, it could have been a simple case of penis envy.

We both wasted too much time, and peace of mind attempting to have a discussion. I accept his creditials - he fought his war. Every man fights his own wars - either in uniform or at the office - and none should diminish the history of another.

The kid was exactly correct in his position that the early story information indicated Americans were present at the scene of what could in fact have been a serious war crime.. But then, he stupidly walked into the clearing - attempting to say there was NEVER any acceptable scenario where "war crimes" must be seen in the light of situational ethics and the will to survive.

Frankly, I hope he cools down, takes that chip off his shoulder and comes back. I'll bet you're man enough to forgive - once.

Are these just the words of a few extremists?

Yes.

Those aren't my leaders. Those opinions don't represent my viewpoint. Should I go find quotes from Anglo politicians, professors, militia whackos and street people and then insist that they represent all Anglos?

Hispanics aren't some monolithic, cultural equivalent of the Borg coming to America to "out-reproduce" you and live on welfare. Shake yourself.

Is your faith and confidence in America and American ideals so fragile that you think we can't absorb immigrants without collapsing? Is this the end of America as we know it? Sure. It probably is. That doesn't mean it's the end of America or our Constitution or our way of life. America will be just fine. Relax.

OK, so you think they are able to be assimilated.

But what number would you think is too much, given the amount of support they will need to be assimilated for many years? 1 million, 10 million, 100 million, or do you think no limit at all?

And if no limit at all, why have any border? -- Is that your view?

Travis, Ignore my previous post --- I hadn't read all the punk assholes' remarks in this link...
Ignore this clown - he'll self destruct - they always do.
He is one sick puppy, in need of help.

You have power hungry, vote hogging democrats and greedy cheap labor big business republicans to thank for our current predicament.

How true, how sad, we're doomed if it's not stopped soon.

First, I'm not going to go into a detailed rant about the way the USA handles immigration policy. That's a rant for another day.

That said, I think we quickly forget how many decades it takes for an ethnic group to get assimilated. THe reason we've forgotten is because immigration between the 1920s and 1968 virtually ground to a halt, so we tend only to know of families who came to this country and assimilated decades ago or families who have only come very recently. German-Americans started coming here in droves in the mid to late 1800s and had German schools, German neighborhoods, and German churches. This likely would have gone on for a few more decades were it not for WWI which made expressions of German culture "unwise"-- not to mention the decades upon decades it's been since we've seen new communities of German s moving to the USA.

My father's side of the family came here in the early 1950s. His parents never really learned that much English, and at family holidays we still bounce back and forth between languages. English was learned as a second language for all of my cousins. However, now that my cousins have children (the second generation born in the USA-- 30 years after my cousins were born and 50 years after my father and his siblings came to the USA), THEY are the first generation to learn English as a first language-- decades after their grandparents first came to this country as children. You're not going to see fully "assimilated" Mexican families -- or any kind of family -- for at least 50 years after they first arrive here.

I had noticed that there has appeared to be no retribution for his defaming of you, while curious, I didn't feel it was my place to comment. Should I have hit the 'abuse' button?

You say you've had "no hint of a problem" in Santa Ana. You probably haven't, since you're a hispanic male. Tustin is a different story altogether, nothing like Santa Ana.

I am a white older woman who lived for over twenty years in the city of Orange, also right next to Santa Ana, and I watched sadly as parts of my town turned to slum-like conditions because of the hordes of illegals living there, twenty to an apartment, cashing their welfare checks at the bank and using their food stamps at the markets. They drive with no auto insurance, and for the past ten years no one could leave their garage open without things being ripped off by Mexicans.

No racism here, my family is multicultural, but I'm sick and tired of my property taxes being used to build schools for millions of kids from Mexico, and I'm sick and tired of my state taxes being used to pay for their welfare and their beer, and I hate seeing California towns turning into slums. If you don't like my views, too bad.

Watch 75% of illegals go home if the freebies are stopped.

Usually I just like to cut, paste, highlight and repost their abusive remarks for attribution, to make sure everyone knows the caliber of punks they are dealing with.

Lately the Admin Moderators had seemed to have a policy of politely cleaning them up behind them, and that is what set me off, but Jim Rob cleared it up for me.

Check out post #96 and let me know when the last time was we saw these quotes in any mainstream newspaper or publicized by any national news service. That's the kind of truth I speak about...the virulent, assinine comments made by so-called Hispanic leaders. Yes, I am a betting man and as naive, self-absorbed and generally ignorant many Americans are at the moment, don't underestimate for one moment that that the resolve would not be there to end this march to national suicide should this issue really explode and we all get the truth.

I would hope they wouldn't be in any mainstream media, since they're unverified and hopelessly out of context.

Didn't stop you from finding them, though. What was your source?

Virulent, assinine comments are hardly unusual among so-called leaders of any race, creed, nationality or religious faith. The original article is ample evidence of that fact.

Hmm. Really? I grew up in Tustin right next door to Santa Ana and I've been working in Santa Ana for over two years now and I've never had so much as a hint of a problem. And yet another racist lie goes up in smoke. This is starting to get monotonous.
Usually the members of the pack don't experience problems, within the pack. I haven't seen any of your pandering arguments stand the Light. Racist! Blackbird.

That's what they say. The thing they love about you is that tiny little unit you're packing. They say it's so unobtrusive, it's like you aren't even there. And you thought they were laughing with you this whole time.

Well friend, I have some of these comments on tape which I recorded from Glenn Spencers show so it's not heresay or fabricated. Sure is funny, I sure haven't seen comments like that from any members of Congress, Justice Dept., County commissioners, etc. Wanna bet if a white politician said for all Mexicans to go back to Mexico there might be a little backlash from all the little hate-speak police? Sure seems like we have a double standard when it comes to insensitive pronouncements in the media.

The suit jointly brought by Mexicans and Filipinos against UC is still pending, is it not? They're going after that right wing University of California-- GO GET 'EM!

don't you miss "B-1 Bob" Janet? I do...I wish he'd come back, but for the reasons you said, re: the changing climate in SA and Tustin, it would be difficult. I felt so sorry for you people out there, when he was "ousted" by voter fraud.

Don't put words in my mouth affirmative action boy.

I'd just like to get to know you better.

I live in San Diego, where do you live? Wouldn't you like to get to know me better?

Since you seem to know that I am just a fake SEAL wannabeee fake and liar, I am probably in reality a 90 pound weakling, so certainly you could come to no harm. Gee, if anything, I should be terrified of a genuine ex Army soldier who helped to protect our Desert Storm forces from the invincible Iraqi Air Force with his Stinger missile battery.

There are a couple of free community newspapers in my community which have had cover stories concluding that Filipinos are better educated than whites.

Oh reeeeeeaallllyyy??? LOL, I'd like to have a gander of that. And I wonder why some of our Filipino trained health care workers are watched by some State Boards....hhhmmmmm... thanks for the chuckle!

Not sure where you you get your twisted logic here but my point is those comments that I've verified were from some hi-profile Hispanics involved in politics as well as education. To keep it simple, "mainstream" referred to the fact that assinine comments like we've discussed are not reported on by large media outlets. The opposite would be true if such assinine comments came from white politicians. The hate-speech police would be out in force and everyone knows it for a fact.

Or..who knows we'll be another Bosnia. I pray that doesn't happen but it sure is funny to see all the hand-wringing from the pro-Aztlaners but Mexico is also the same country with ARMED agents on their so. border taking target practice on those coming from C. America
