The race card is played more when it comes to immigration than on any other issue. I'd estimate at least 40 million times a day or more. I mean if you figure there are 20 million illegal aliens - a low estimate in my opinion - and they each complain twice about immigration in the United States, you can be sure that they've played the race card because there's no other argument for them to use.
But contrary to popular belief, there are "racist" Latinos as well as "racist" white people like myself who want illegal immigration to be stopped. For instance this Fresno Bee article points out a few of them.
Unlike some Hispanics, Muñoz Palmer has grown irritated by the largely Latino immigrant protests -- which she says only blame the United States for the problems facing undocumented workers.
"We need to hold off on people coming in for five years until we get this cleaned up. We have to stop letting people come in. They do it in Australia. ... This whole thing is such a mess," she said. ... she wants the borders closed. The 44-year-old says that once there's a solution to stem the flow of illegal and legal immigration, the borders can reopen.
"I'm against people coming to this country illegally and then having children here. ... I'm against employers hiring illegal immigrants and taking jobs from others here," said 55-year-old Paul Garcia, a retired farm laborer who was born in Mexico and came into the United States legally before becoming a U.S. citizen.
Garcia, who lives in Fresno, said he prefers using prisoners to pick crops in the fields rather than undocumented workers. He says he doesn't care whether some Hispanics chastise him for his view.
"The traitors are them. They are coming here to protest, and they are not even registered voters and not U.S. citizens," Garcia said.
Tomás Martinez, a third-generation U.S.-born Hispanic, has no beef with demonstrators. Martinez, a Republican of Mexican and Spanish descent, favors the Senate compromise to address the undocumented workers already here but wants more secure borders.
"Every country has a right to defend and define its borders. If we don't defend the border ... we are not exercising our sovereignty," Martinez said. ... "The student visas have been abused for the past five decades. ... Many of the students are from the Middle East," ...
He said foreign students use the visas to come to the United States without the intent of returning to their home country.
"The student visas are a big leak," Martinez said.
So there you have it, three "racist" Latinos, who are US citizens and want our border defended, secured and illegal immigration to stop.
Don't just take their word for it though. Nearly half of the Latinos in Arizona (47%) apparently are "racist" as well since they voted for Proposition 200 which allows for asking immigration status before receiving government services. Then there's You Don't Speak For Me where there's a lot of Latinos that the illegal aliens don't speak for.
The fact is that this immigration debate has nothing to do with race or racism. That is a trumped up charge by those who want no borders and want illegal immigration to continue for whatever reason. Don't feel bad if you bought into this total crock though, even some of our leaders like Senator Lindsey Graham have fallen for it calling for "the bigots to shut up". I wonder if he told that to all of the folks above.
I'm sorry I didn't get to this one sooner... Y'all think Texas is slow??? It takes Oregonians an HOUR AND A HALF just to watch 60 Minutes. I think a little bit of Oregon has rubbed off on me. (damnit)
Gerald Celente (Top Economic Trends Forecaster) said, "what's bad for Wall Street is good for Main sStreet" Well... back 30 years ago that might be true in it's effectiveness... but ya see 30 years ago, when kids like and me wound up with one those little burr stickers in our bike tires, we'd hoof on down to Pep Boys or Western Auto, get some Monkey Grip and a tire pump, borrow a wrench from Dad (made sure we put it back too) fixed our little problem, and we were off flyin' again. Now we learned all of that from our parents, who knew how to produce a solution or a product. Sister needed a prom dress -mom went and got a pattern -and DAAMN my sister looked prettier then the San Antonio River Walk in mid Spring.
But ya see most of our generation has lost much of their vital strength, and ability to focus which is key in order to produce a viable product or offer a viable service. Todays' generation only knows how to throw things away when they break.
The only way out of the mess we're in is through the genius and strength to produce products or offer services vital and supportive to production.
Now, those Mexicans, I'm not taliking Tejanos like me - I'm talking, born and bread in Mexico, Mexicans, they're going to get special treatment and preferences to open up production factories and businesses over and above the Texans and Texicans. Need I say more? Can we see what the outcome result well be and the ploy behind it is, and who gets push out?!? This is not a race issues, albeit there are those on boths sides of the line who can't see past their own belt buckle, and will claim it is; nevertheless, TPTB are out to destroy a menatlity; a spirit! A Mentality and Spirit that can not be enslaved.
2 Corinthians 3:17 (King James Version)
17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
God bless The Republic of Texas
Dios bendiga a la Republica de Tejas

5 Fires -out!
