This may be something to celebrate in Mexico, but it isn't something designed for we Americans.

Report 'em and then deport 'em!

Support AB-1070!

Now that the Tea Party appears to be sweeping to victory, the time has come to reclaim America!

Buh-bye Joe Baca! Buh bye Gil Navarro!

Next? Buh Bye illegal immigrants and the "Dream on" act.

I find it interesting that the media makes a big deal out of the so-called day of the dead, a Hispanic culture event, but completely ignores All-Saints Day, recognized universally by many Christian denominations. Of course reporting on the latter would be politically incorrect in this day and age so our friends in the media ignore it.

This is crazy. If we celebrated an Anglo holiday, we'd be racist.

Maybe you should use your bitching and try getting your stupid city their own fire dept. and police rather then renting from other counties. It also a day that coincides with two religious holidays unlike Halloween.
