I have seen Linda Ronstadt in concert for over 20 years,and the Lady is just amazing,she sings with her heart and soul.Whether it be the Music of her Mexican Heritage,or the tours she is backing for her current Music,or singing some of her famous songs from the 70's,80's,or 90's.She has her pulse on America's heartbeat.And listening to Linda,pick any album,cassette,or C.D,and you hear with your heart and you too will be swept away,like I have,and always will!

Yeah.

Too bad she's an intolerant bigot who says she can't enjoy being in the same room as Christians or Republicans.

Sorry, Mary--that may be the pulse of Monterey, California, but it isn't the pulse of America.

She's an utter embarassment.

Sorry Ted. Mary is right. It's Republicans and Christians that have been the bigots which became painfully evident after stealing their way into power only to abuse and trash everyone in their path who disagreed with them. Linda was just pointing out that little factoid whenever possible. America embraced her sentiment with an overwhelming victory for change in 2008. Once again Linda is ahead of the curve. Have a nice day Ted.

Like the Mexican parasitic invasion now feeding on the great American teet, she made her fortune a la Americana. Now that she does Mexican music, she's nothing. She has no Mexican ancestry, just communist, socialist, traitor genes and a big-mouth that no one wants to hear. Somebody put some Mexican water in her drink, let old Montezuma show her how great Mexico is.

YOU ARE UNINFORMED. LInda is Mexican American. Her family goes back at LEAST 5 generations in Tucson, when Arizona was Mexico.
She is the largest selleing female vocalist of all times; her "Canciones" Lp is the largest selling foreign language recording ever in the USA, and all 3 of her Spanish recordings won the Grammy. Her brother was the long time Sheriff of tucson and HE apposes the law, as do all intelligent peope, INHO. It will NOT stand legally.

porterwill, people (and I use that term loosely) like la migra are not only ignorant of the facts, they are just plain ignorant. they don't have ears for the truth, just ears for "their" truth. you cannot argue with such bigots. the best you can do is post the real truth which points out what idiots people like la migra really are and you did a beautiful job doing so.

Right. I think of that every time I hear about those Christian terrorist attacks (and, before you open your stereotpe-filled mouth, Hitler, Stalin, and even Tim McVeigh were one of you--atheists).

So, three years later, how's that "overwhelming victory for change" working for you? Better than the rest of the country, I hope.

That's the cool thing about time--it inevitably proves who's wrong.

You.

A bigot is someone who makes ignorant, sweeping, uneducated stereotyped statements against a large group of people.
