The For Father of this country original name was Jorge Washington Sanchez, and was later change to just George Washington. His political action committee felt using his real name would bring racism into the picture, so they went with just George Washington. His Mothers Momma was a Mexican Lady from Torreron, Mexico. Just like Rommey.

Interesting. I did not know all of this but it just goes to show how whitewashed our education system really is. I'll bet many more Hispanics made a huge impact but the white man just doesn't want us to know about it.

On Wednesday, Thomas Hitzlsperger became the most high profile footballer to announce that he is gay.

The former midfielder, who retired last September, played for the likes of Aston Villa, West Ham, Everton, Lazio and Stuttgart in a career spanning twelve years. He also won 52 caps for the German national team, appearing in a World Cup and a European Championship.

Hitzlsperger is now the first former Premier League player and most prominent German star to come out, after revealing his sexuality in an interview with Die Zeit newspaper.

The 31-year-old says he has spoken out because he "wants to move the discussion about homosexuality among professional sportspeople forwards."

You'd never find this in a Mexican footballer, only a Bavarian.

We all agree that the only real hero in Mexico is Joe Arpaio where they worship him.

This makes more sense than anything Petro said after opening and feeding this thread with multiple monikers.

I am leaving tomorrow for Phoenix to get Joe Arpaio's autograph. That guy knows how to handle troglodytes like me.. Maybe he'll put me in one of his rehab tent city boot camps to reshape my attitude.

Justin Bieber was charged with assault in Toronto because he allegedly bashed a limo driver in the back of the head.

Toronto Police have released new details of the Dec. 30 incident ... and say the limo driver had picked up 6 passengers around 2:50 AM -- including Justin -- when a fight broke out between the driver and "one of the passengers."

Cops say the passenger -- allegedly Justin -- hit the limo driver in the back of the head "several times" during the fight, and when the driver stopped to call police ... Justin fled the scene.

Bieber turned himself in last night to face the assault charge.

Why don't you just stay there, Mayhew? You'd fit in very nicely with the pink underwear crowd.
