Racism, prejudice, intolerance: as American as apple pie

Oct 26, 2009 Full story: Denver Post 8,657

Religious authorities utilized the word - heretic' in the 16th century to silence or - slap down' anyone that brought facts, figures and new concepts to the public.A If a new scientific concept contradicted the Catholic Church, they placed the scoundrel under house arrest - such as Galileo for proving the Earth revolved around the sun.

<quoted text>Another amnesty for illegal-aliens would require Congress. They won't be able to "sneak" anything. No,The President can NOT just snap his fingers and have shit happen and especially something like ANOTHER amnesty. The window of opportunity was slammed shut on Obama's 101st day in office. Let's break this down shall we. We have a Liberal Democrat President who's party has a solid majority in both the HOUSE and the SENATE yet he still can NOT get his Health Care Plan with a "Public Option"....And you think he's going to be able and pull off ANOTHER AMNESTY??? The reason immigration is barely being mentioned is because we are about to enter another "election year". Yep,those 2010 Senate Elections could very well effectively KILL Barack Obama's Presidency so he wants to be very careful because if he has Democratic Senators push another amnesty THIS close to those 2010 elections it's all but over come voting day and he knows it. No House + No Senate = No Obama!!
That is still not going to have them stop like what they are doing with the resurrecting of the Public option!

They figure if enough of them come and refuse to speak English then it will become mandatory that ALL school aged children become fluent in both English and Spanish. Well that's not going to happen.Ther will be no amnesty and the Asians are on their way and will soon outnumber ALL Hispanics. Most Asians speak English as a second language so they should fit in real nice. It's only going to get worse for the 3rd world illegals.
I agree, it is the reconquista that about 58% of the Mexicans believe in.

I don't think they are "mentally deficient", as you say. It's just that they just don't have the need to learn! Look at their communities and their work places. Trust me, they know enough people that speaks their language to get by with no difficulties. There is no law in this country saying that you have to speak English, in fact English isn't even the official language. There is no official language (look it up :p).

It's also a matter of personal choice. They just refuse to do it.

By-the-by, I am a "Mexicant" who can probably speaks better English than you ;). Just a matter of choice! "But I'm just saying"

It is CA. Rancho for the Spanish conquistador days and Cucamonga which means Headwaters in the local Native American dialect. Any further questions?

English is the official language of many states, counties and cities. It is just not federally mandate because of the reconquistas and socialists. However, there is a bill up there to make it federally mandated!

Go and live in any other country. Attempt to work without learning the language. Do so illegaly and see what happens.
Come to the USA legally, learn the language, follow our laws, work. You will be welcome.
Come here illegally, scorn our language, break our laws. Oh wait you are already doing that. Never mind!

<quoted text>Maybe your assumption is ignorant. I've was a Democrat for 38 years, and am now an independent. I am for a woman right to choose and don't care who marries who. But I know damage when I see it and an invasion when it happens. Diversity comes from the word to divide and that is what this invasion is doing to this country. I know graffiti when I see it and gangs prowling my streets, or 30 people living in a garage against our zoning codes. You see I wasn't brainwashed by our existing school system. No it is not me that is ignorant or right wing. You don't even know you've been brainwashed be cause you've been taught it's so cool to be liberal. Next time don't forget to use the words "hate" or "intolerant" those are your buzz words. But I must give you credit, you did manage to get in the word "racist". Next time just call me a coconut, my last name is Garcia.
No, I think the data bear me out on this. Internet message boards attract people with opinions that they do not feel comfortable expressing in public. Anonymity provides them the freedom to say what they really think, and I find what these people really think to be disturbing.

And I didn't ask you for your life story, nor was my comment specifically directed at you. But if you fit the bill, it matters little what your last name is.

I don't think that Mexicans that come over care about or even know about the war in 1848. They really are trying to improve their which is understandable when you realize the conditions they come from. What I don't like is the leniency we afford them in not forcing them to assimilate..providing things in Spanish etc. As you said, most Asians and others have no problems assimilating and learning the language. Why should Mexicans be so special? I hate to say it, but there is some insinuation in all this that maybe they are not as smart some as the rest and need special help to make it by...just saying what some are thinking..
