Sort of like your immigrant parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents? The difference between you and us, is we don't actually think that way about your ancestors. We accept that manifest destiny is what it is, but we rightfully just want a piece of the same pie.

I just want to add that the one thing which fascinates me most about the Mexican flag, if you aren't too ignorant to actually know the history of it, is that the symbol on it, the eagle with a snake in it's mouth on a cactus, is actually a precolumbian symbol which predates Spanish arrival by at least 200 years. That's by far the best part of the entire debate about whether it is wrong or rigth to show it wherever the hell you feel like it in this supposedly free country that appropriated several of its southwestern states from indigenous Mexicans.
