I can't begin to tell you how bad that food looks.

"Mexico City has a sophisticated and cosmopolitan dining scene..." Wow, and that's supported by a nasty photo and something about seeing multiple Starbucks?

Next time you're in Mexico City stop by Fonda el Refugio, Liverpool 125, Col. Juarez in La Zona Rosa. The most amazing food and service in a quaint ambiance.

I am glad finally someone writes something about what it really is like to visit Mexico city. The discovery of incredibly sophisticated and delicious food never stops there, while it is generally very affordable and delicious. And there is something for everyone. I can't wait to go back.

I hear the highly unregulated "Dog burritos" are excellent!

And any time you eat out, tell them you're part of the "Sinaloa" party! You'll get A+ service.

Here in the US the shootings are not in the taquerias, they are right in the schools...

While you are eating your burrito at the school cafeteria's across the US, they may shoot your brains out, but we don't say much about that...DO WE!!???

Sure, what ever you say.

Just cause my name is not John or Mike does not mean I am not a US citizen...

Put your head out the window and you will see a wide variety of nationalities... many of us with a perfectly legal citizenship certificate.

In fact, more can be said of a citizen who chose to be here, than one like you which owes it to mere chance to be born here.

Any way, you can check my citizenship status and I can call the IRS to audit your last tax return :-)

We'll see who comes ahead!

ya, maybe a brains taco would improve your mental state... I doubt it though...
You need more serious work than that.

What makes you think there's anything wrong with my mental state? Mine is California, yours is obviously Rhode Island, lighten up, it's a zombie movie reference, an American thing, you wouldn't understand.

"an American thing".. well, sir, let me tell ya....

the American thing is no longer the American thing from the past.

we have become a true melting pot, but without the melting... us new Americans are keeping our maternal languages, are becoming who we want to be and not what Americana dictates for us to be.

In that regard, you are right, you are from one extreme and I am from the other, but both under this blue and shiny American sky!!

In your dreams, dude!

I have the same right as any one else to be here and I am not waiting for a hearing to grant me that right.

Your message says a lot about your state of mind... you want to subject us to hearings, just cause you think you can do it...

You are wrong... we are here for the same reason you are, immigration.
Plus, some of us think we belong here more than transplanted ones like you... that is jut my personal opinion.

Uh, I'm a Native American, so you have no room to speak.

I'll see you tomorrow morning at Ohare. I'll be the guy wearing the ICE uniform and big feathered head dress, throwing a pow wow!

Are you really a native american?

Well, then.... what do you say about the white man taking your land, killing your people.....

Is that why now you turn your hate towards Mexicans?

Is this kind of like the circle of violence in families... once you are abused you abuse others?

so... let me understand this...

your people were wronged by the Europeans, now they use you to enforce the immigration laws?

They should have enforced the respect laws on the thousands of native Americans they killed to take their land...

que lastima!
