Skip to comments.People to counter Monday's boycott by shopping and speaking up
Posted on 04/30/2006 6:50:14 AM PDT by Ladycalif
MISSION VIEJO - Sandra Sweet was 8 the last time she did anything political in public. She thinks.
She has this vague memory of being a little girl when her father took her to a political rally in Washington, D.C., that involved the Vietnam War and something about "a march for victory."
So it's surprising that Sweet, 45, is organizing a "pro-American" rally in Santa Ana on Monday to counter what some are calling "the Great American Boycott." Armed with her e-mail address book and a sense of alarm Sweet is taking the first political action of her adult life.

Me too! Ordinarily Monday is a quiet shopping day for me. This Monday I plan to do some serious buying, interspersed with restaurant visits. The commies have come out of the woodwork and have plastered Flagstaff with red posters proclaiming something called "A Day of International Worker Solidarity." This will be a good opportunity to see which businesses are closed so I can avoid them in the future.
I wish I had more money to spend on Monday.
Shopping at places that are at least 'friendly' to the GOP increases the chances (but of course does not guarantee) that the stakeholders are inclined to be law-abiding and employ 'legals.'
If we don't buy SOMEPLACE on Monday, we help endorse the illegals' cause.
I'd bet most Americans don't realize that "International Workers Day" is usually celebrated in OTHER countries by anarchists, socialists and commies -- and now the illegals and their supporters are bringing it here.
To acknowledge 'Bite the Hand that Feeds You' day I will make a long postponed purchase of a notebook computer...also will have my birthday dinner out a day early and will fill the tank of my car even though I could get by until Wednesday. Would have probably kept using my old desktop for another year but we all have our personal tipping point.
Buying on Sunday or Tuesday instead of Monday won't have any effect on businesses in this country. It's the same basic concept as the silly gasoline station boycotts. "OK, nobody buy gasoline next Wendesday." So, everybody fills up on Tuesday instead. Big deal.
Are you sure your "Mexican joint" is owned/run by illegals or illegal supporters? Baby/bathwater. See tagline.
Yes; because unfriendliness in neighbors is usually chiefly found only among "hispanics", which we know are ALL either illegal or anchor babies. And, yes they're ALL OUT TO GET YOU with the old mal de ojo. I keep on having to buy new bed sheets from all the eggs in my bed ( /sarcasm).
Yeah, that cheap labor is addictive. /s
You never heard of motorvoter? It's another Clinton era legislation that needs sunsetting.
Ask Bob Dornan about illegals not voting.
"They're all out to get you."No but i find it ODD and RUDE that my neighbors(yes hispanic)will not even acknowledge my pressence or even speak to me when i say hello.No one else(black and white)in my neighborhood has that problem. What's your problem?
I'm going to do as I normally do every day and obey the universal law of inertia.
I HATE shopping, but come monday, this dude is gonna shop till he drops!
Maybe they're just jerks. But what does that have to do with an illegal immigration thread? My point is that not all hispanics are either illegal or legal immigrants or anchor babies. It's time all hispanic behavior and all hispanics stopped being discussed on illegal threads.
Hiding in plain sight.
Illegal thread?What's your problem?
Not that the thread is illegal but that the subject at hand is illegal immigration.
Get a life.
Money talks..money is power. (We got the power!) Monday is the time for all good patiots to come to the aid of their country..
Talk it up, people.
Other than that, we can run around stores like track stars buying what we blew off buying while it was raining like hell the last few months:):) I need some new clothes, how about you?
I think so too.
"I did a scan of our Sunday paper (DFW) and found that every article, every editorial, every column was very pro-immigration, pro-illegal. Much hand ringing and pulling of hair about what would happen to the restaurants, farms, construction companies if the illegals were forced to return home and how we would all suffer. Not one article that I found was against illegal immigration or called for border control."
Go to numbersusa.com they have suggestions for writing letters to the editor. They also have FREE FAXES to send to your Senators and Reps. It probably won't help but at least we can be sure they know how we feel.
I moved into a rental in 1989 in Canoga Park, Ca. that the owner had moved from and was wanting to rent it as a hedge against the expense of his kid's college education in about 10-12 years.
The guy next door was one of the designers/builders of the Love Bug for the Disney movies and also rented but wanted to buy.
As he couldn't afford to buy the house he rented, he was looking at cheaper houses farther away from his work and the valley. As it worked out, his landlord helped him to get into a new place in a development near Edwards AFB where there was a lot of speculative building on the old Newhall Oil property which was regulated out of business by the environmentalist politicians and moved not long after we settled in.
His landlord then proceeded to rent the house to a series of Mexicans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans charging by the week and by the person.
For the remainder of the time we lived there, over four years, they came and went, mattresses in tow and no recognizable household goods among them other than that necessity.
I occasionally could strike up a conversation with one of two men who stayed the longest by substituting hand signals for those elements of unrecognized speech until the fateful day in January of 1994 when the Northridge earthquake struck just before dawn.
After that, my wife's focus was on leaving Paradise for somewhere the Earth Didn't Move for her; come October we had set our path and the moving van was due - the last conversation I had with the neighbor was the day I sold him two cars that we would be unable to take with us.
By then, three more of the seven houses on the cul de sac had been turned into rentals and we waved goodbye to the barrio as we drove off the first week in November.
Where are your loyalties?
Maybe it's time you quit leaping to the defense of the indefensible simply because you share a common language or heritage; becoming a U.S. citizen implies becoming a full citizen.
"Great American Former Customer Boycott"LOL.I wish i could have seen the look on his face when u said that.Definitely a Kodak moment:)
I won't be doing business with shops that close tomorrow.
That is an interesting question. If you are of Mexican decent are you loyal to Mexico? If it came down to Mexico or America where would you stand?
"They don't wave back,and avoid any eye contact.Very strange and rude!Not very neighborly imo:("
Well, just do what I plan to do. I bought 2 Mexican flags yesterday that I plan to take with me to look for any illegal alien demonstrations. If I find any I will burn the flags for them. I will also look for any businesses that seem to be closed in support of illegals and will refuse to do any business with them!
The next door neighbors i mentioned earlier are a typical family.Husband,wife and kids,they just won't acknowledge me.However,there are a couple houses in my neighborhood that are(or sound)similar to what you refered to.If the people i see sitting out front are residents of the homes,they must be packed in like sardines.What gets me is these are almost exclusively young men,20's to mid 40's,and they sit out front all day long drinking beer.I don't think they work.But it's the looks i get when i drive by.Hostility that's palpable.
LOL.Do you have life insurance?
Is your state senator Charles Duncan? He is mine (in Hawley,Tx.) His web page has everything in either english or spanish. I called his office to let him know I thought it was outrageous, if his constituents cannot speak english
they are highly suspect. He is just another closet liberal that calls himself a conservative.
Bumping your post.
Here in San Francisco two of our Chinese supervisors wanted to LEGALLY give non-citizens the right to vote in city schools issues. Even here in the leftie city, that measure was voted down.
All 11 million illegals voting? Baloney. And THAT was my point. They don't all vote....and you both know that.
You sound exactly like lawyers. You can't say to a lawyer, "Look at the blue sky." They will say, "Yeah, but....." and cite the OBVIOUS exceptions (like voter fraud in my statement about 11 million illegals don't vote)) and think that they are really ADDING something to the conversation. Double baloney.
You don't need to do much. Throw blood or something that looks like blood on the first flag. Go potty on the second flag and hang them both upside down. These people declared war on us first. They will understand the messaage.
My loyalties, not that they should be questioned any more than anyone else's here, are with the America....the nation (at one time state/republic) that 6 generations of my ancestors have sent sons/fathers/husbands to fight for and defend. My loyalties are with the nation in which I and 6 generations of my family have been born. My loyalties are for a nation where there exist are GOOD American neighbors of all ethnicities and BAD American neighbors of all ethnicities. My loyalties are for a nation that should close the borders against illegal immigration and protect our sovereignty. My loyalties are for a nation where I had hoped to live out a life where I wouldn't be treated as part of a non-existent monolithic ethnic group, but as an individual instead.
I'm NOT leaping to their defense. I'm pointing out that perhaps they're just jerks and not necessarily illegal jerks.
Can I pee on them before you burn them?
See #90. And I'm NOT of "Mexican" descent. I'm of "Texian" ancestry and Spanish/Indian descent.
I'm also very sad that a combination of an Administration without intestinal fortitude/a loud pro-illegal and illegal minority/and too quick assumptions have resulted in anybody questioning MY loyalties.
My state Senator is Bob Duncan. I also detest having to search my way for English through everything from the McDonald's menu to the baking directions on frozen food.
The correct figure is 25 million illegal aliens. You were low-balled by the obvious people.
Como este mi casa. I finally acquired the components for the best coffee you ever tasted. Cafe con leche con anis- steaming hot licorice coffee with steamed milk! It was a chore getting Spanish Anis liquor here in the crystal litro. It will be tasted from on rare occasaions.
Change the name!
Why? It doesn't infer anything specifically about Mexico....it's a nod to my family being here at the time of the Republic, my heritage, and the fact that I'm Republican and hispanic, which liberals despise. I've no problem with FReeper names that start with "Celtic" or "Irish"; so I don't think mine is a problem.
Oh, and Don't change your name:')
This is true, and I do the same when in a foreign country as a visitor (although I would have a problem covering my head in a a Muslim country); but I don't think the illegals coming here consider themselves to be Americans or even would-be Americans; and they don't even afford us, the Americans, the type of "visitor" respect of which you speak. It's because they're not really visitors, but intruders/trespassers.
