“The reality is that this channel will enhance the intellect not just of Hispanics, but of all other open-minded individuals.”

Maryland Public Television's plan to launch a Spanish language channel is drawing complaints from critics who charge that the publicly funded organization should not be catering to an individual ethnic group. via News Journal

It hardly makes Mexican nationals our enemies. I'm sure plenty of gringos will be out shooting each other over food... but I suppose I should ignore them and look for a foreigner to shoot...
That should have been done a long time ago. It's basically inevitable now. Globalism has caused it- globalism, the result of greed. Jobs outsourced, massive immigration to keep wages down in the first world nations, etc. Finally there's just a meltdown of everything. You are getting US sovereignty mixed up with ethnicity of US citizens again as you always do. It is impossible to be a "global community". That's why humanity sectioned off in their own nations to begin with. Human beings are not saints- far from it.

I Am saying- IF we keep our citizenry at the numbers it is now- which would mean cutting off all immigration and new citizenship- we are in a good position to survive what is coming. Other nations such as China and Russia are not likely to try and invade us because of our military and technology. They will go after easier targets. It is highly likely they will invade others. We aren't as likely to have to invade others to survive because we have what we need, if utilized properly, for our present population to make it. Other nations- because of their populations and demographics will not be able to make it and will have wars and horror. If the US allows itself to become overpopulated it will meet the same fate. Mexico has land, resources and money. When the elite have no choice and cannot lean on the US to allow their greedy hoarding any longer- maybe they will provide for their own people instead of letting them lay out in the street and die. The US would defend this continent from invasion because it would be in our best interest to not let invaders get close to us. Otherwise, other people will have to be on their own- simply because the resources won't be there.

Mexico's problem isn't over-population. Mexico is plenty rich enough to feed itself... the problem is that foreign corporations are in control of the Mexican economy. That is the elephant in the room none of you want to see.

You cannot admit that forces centered in the USA are responsible for the conditions in Mexico and many countries. Globalism? Nothing new. 500 years of Euroimperialist world-ravaging has not ended, only tranformed with the changing times.

We should have shot the foreigners a long time ago? Is that what you're saying?

The fact is, the modern nation-state is a child of the colonialist era. What is natural about Welsh ruled by English? Catalans by Castilians? Ibo and Hausa in the same nation? Indonesia?!!!?

You want to pretend it's about national sovereignty, but you're sitting on land stolen from Mexico and know full well that it is an ethnic conflict you are advocating. Many whites are in the southwest, as in California, itching for the opportunity to shoot some Mexicans. This time you won't be up against an idiot like Santa Ana, however...

Mexico only had the land on paper. Natives here would never let them settle here. The Spanish only had mission settlements along the far southern edges. You know this.

I am talking about a total financial collapse that's coming. There won't be anyone able to buy the corps. goods. I'm talking about survival for decades. That's what I feel is coming. All you talk about is Mexico and US corps- blah, blah, blah. I read an article where Mexican officials were complaining because the US is taking a lot of their business to China now instead. The greed for cheap later has been one of the main things that have destroyed everything.

I am talking about US citizens being able to survive perhaps one of the worst disasters in history. All you have on your mind is Mexicans.

The land this side of the existing US/Mex border was not "stolen from Mexico".

The land that is now the US Southwest was stolen by the Hispanics, who came from Europe, from the Native American Indian tribes, none of which have ever been "Mexican", "Spanish", "Hispanic", or "Latino".

That "imaginary line in the sand" is the one the Spanish and Mexico both drew across the land of the Native American Indian tribes.

This land was not Mexico first, there was no such nation as "Mexico" until 1822.
This land was not New Spain first, the Spanish came here from Europe and stole this land.
This land was not stolen by the United States, the USA won a war against Mexico, and paid Mexico the equivelent of $650,000,000 (in todays currency value) to give up the Indian Territories, which were NEVER part of the Mexican States, before 1822, or after.

Spain never "colonized" the Provinces of California, Santa Fe, and Texas, the land remained in the control of the Native Indian tribes, all but a small narrow strip in Santa Fe, a line of forts delineating where the US/Mex border is today, and a few forts and mission/concentration camps along the lower coastline of California.
For the few years that Mexico claimed the Provinces, and called the Indian land "territory", Mexico also never colonized the southwest Indian lands.

The REAL map of Mexico in 1822, when Mexico became a sovereign nation, you will see the Mexican STATES were south of were the current US/Mex border is today, and north of the Mexican States, is what is now the US Southwest - the Territories, NOT STATES. And the territories were never colonized, developed, settled by, or populated by Mexicans or Mexico.
The land still belonged to the Indian tribes.
Enlarge the map from 1822, and read who lived here then, it sure as hell was not "Mexicans".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mexico_in_1...
A Territory is not a "state". The Territories were never part of the United Mexican States.

So you can give it up, that "imaginary line", "the border crossed us" whine is debunked.
Your "US stole Mexican land" whine is debunked.

Find another way to try to make another lame excuse for Mexican illegal aliens to stay here in violation of US law.
The ones you are trying to use are exposed as the lies they are.

But we can not ignore the fact that there is a lot of corruption among those in power in Mexico. And that there exists as well, a nasty sort of classicism/racism that keeps much of the wealth in the hands of the few.

USA corporations are responsible for maintaining low wages, displaced farmers and others who flow over the border. Those forces are also screwing USA workers by busting Unions, out-sourcing jobs, etc.

And so, again I state the obvious fact so few will relax from their vibrating bigotry to acknowledge, that the Mexican workers and USA workers in fact have a common oppressor.

You're a rhetoric-spewing empty-headed dittohead, boy.

The FACT is that all those sweatshops in Mexico are run by foreign corporations, mostly USA. Your cynical insulting ass would only be put into a series of painful therapy sessions by any encounter with me. I do not tolerate big-mouthed fascists lightly, boy.

In fact, USA corporations benefit greatly, and it is no surprise then that politicians of both parties, both BOUGHT by those corporations, don't alter the situation. The BEST thing they could do is require USA corporations to follow USA labor and environmental regulations overseas, including in Mexico.

Until then, USA corporations remain the big bloody global parasite which is the root of all these problems. If you don't see that, you're brainwashed by corporate shills like Rush Limbaugh.

Interesting article:

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese Imperial Navy launched a surprise attack on the American naval fleet at Pearl Harbor, forcing America into war. Within days, Japanese forces attacked the American positions in the Philippines. Outnumbered and desperate, General Douglas MacArthur moved his forces, including the 200th and 515th, to the Bataan Peninsula west of Manila. Here, fighting alongside their Filipino comrades, they made a heroic three-month stand against the large, well-equipped invading forces. As the weeks wore on, rations, medical supplies, and ammunition diminished and became scarce. On April 9, 1942, starving and greatly outnumbered, most of the surviving troops surrendered. After their capture, the American and Filipino soldiers had to endure the 12-day, 85-mile "death march" from Bataan to the prison camps, followed by 34 months of captivity. Three years later, General Jonathan Wainwright praised the men of the 200th and 515th units, saying that "they were the first to fire and the last to lay down their arms and only reluctantly doing so after being given a direct order."

In the Pacific theater, the 158th Regimental Combat Team, known as the Bushmasters, an Arizona National Guard unit comprised of many Hispanic soldiers, saw heavy combat. They earned the respect of General MacArthur who referred to them as "the greatest fighting combat team ever deployed for battle." Company E of the 141st Regiment of the 36th Texas Infantry Division was made up entirely of Spanish-speaking Americans, the majority of them from Texas. After 361 days of combat in Italy and France, the 141st Infantry Regiment sustained 1,126 killed, 5,000 wounded, and over 500 missing in action. In recognition of their extended service and valor, the members of the 141st garnered 31 Distinguished Service Crosses, 12 Legion of Merits, 492 Silver Stars, 11 Soldier's Medals, 1,685 Bronze Stars, as well as numerous commendations and decorations. In all, twelve Hispanic soldiers received the Medal of Honor for their services during World War II.

From 1940 to 1946, more than 65,000 Puerto Ricans served in the American military, most of them going overseas. The 295th and 296th Infantry Regiments of the Puerto Rican National Guard participated in the Pacific theater, while other Puerto Rican soldiers served in Europe. In addition, some 200 Puerto Rican women served in the Women's Army Corps, where some were used as linguists in the field of cryptology, communication, and interpretation. During the Korean War (1950-1953), the 43,434 Puerto Ricans serving in the 65th Infantry Regiment saw extensive service in nine major campaigns, losing 582 men in battlefield action.

Because of their courageous efforts, the 65th Infantry received a Presidential Unit Citation, a Meritorious Unit Commendation, and two Republic of Korea Unit Citations. Individual members of the unit received four Distinguished Service crosses and 124 Silver Stars. Of his experience as commander of the 65th Infantry Regiment, General William W. Harris wrote: "No ethnic group has greater pride in itself and its heritage than the Puerto Rican people. Nor have I encountered any that can be more dedicated and zealous in support of the democratic principles for which the United States stands. Many Puerto Ricans have fought to the death to uphold them."

Because I know for a fact, that Jews are the most devious,undermining, crooked, people in the world!

I would trust Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, before I trusted a damned hooknosed JEW!

Why do you think Pat wrote this?
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504365_162-200050...

"Never would have figured on this one: Pat Buchanan going to bat for affirmative action:

"Not since Thurgood Marshall, 43 years ago, has a Democratic president chosen an African-American. The lone sitting black justice is Clarence Thomas, nominated by George H. W. Bush. And Thomas was made to run a gauntlet by Senate liberals."

Actually, Buchanan was less interested in making the case for diversity than he was in sounding a new alarm:

"If (Elena) Kagan is confirmed," he wrote, "Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats."

I repeat.........

"Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats."

Aren't there Asians here also?

Here's what the census says:

http://www.wwwcensusgov.zuom.info/Press-Relea...

"The estimated number of U.S. residents who say they are Asian or Asian in combination with one or more other races. This group comprises 5 percent of the total population. California has both the largest population (4.6 million) and the largest numerical increase (367,100) of people of this group since April 2000; Hawaii is the state where Asians make up the highest proportion of the total population (58 percent)."

Lets see, Jews 2%, VS Asians at 5%, so who should be recommended?

But nooooooooooooooooooo, we've got to put another JEW on the Supreme Court!

You talk about "fairness", is THAT fair?

Yeah, thought so!
