Will continue to think of themselves as "Mexican' even after years in the U.S. legally

Assimilation is demonized by the racist Chicano Democratic politicians. They don't want the peasants to ever become proud Americans ....just an army of leftwing marxist/socialist VOTERS. It's all about the POWER of privilege to this new brand of "democrats".

Sponging from illegals we as citizens give everything for them to come here why because of the americans who dont want to work certain jobs thats why there are alot of work visas and they see the opportunity after there here so they come illegally after it expire or just stay and work so stop complaining and saying there sponging when in fact its asian , mexicans , Chinese, etc. coming to do what americans aren't willing to do and yes some are bad people just like anyone else

We did nothing to stop the invasion and colonization. Today's Americans must accept that we are a Nation of Cowards who ignored our responsiblities as citizens and parents.

No one should violate the law but we as Americans have allowed it on the grounds on giving them work visa etc for jobs Americans don't want we contribute to them by allowing them do the work some Americans wont do.We let them stay on without no repercussion to what they have and continue to do and now its to the point where there illegals everywhere we have sat back and let it happen so don't grip when its all mexicans and by the looks they have more privileges than our fellow Americans !

I have two friends that will be traveling to Florida with me and I'll probably have to hire acouple more. I cant; help but think my own company will do very well.
I may be gone for several days, I'll be moving and traveling to Florida. I'll keep everyone posted when I get settled. If you know anyone in Florida who needs work done, just send me an e-mail.
I'll be working the Vero, Stuart, St. Lucie areas. There's lots of retires in those areas who will need quality work done. My slogan will be "Quality work at a fair price".
Wish you the best on your new business.God Bless you tu amiga.

2013 Savannah Saint Patrick’s Day Parade

Savannah’s first St. Patrick’s Day Parade was in 1813, only 80 years after the city was founded by General James Oglethorpe. A small group of Hibernians organized and marched on the streets of Savannah to remember the death of our Patron Saint, Saint Patrick of Ireland. Over the years the city prospered with Irish immigrants due to the potato famine and political persecution their country faced. We are proud to carry on the tradition our ancestors began almost 200 years ago.

The San Francisco Chinese New Year celebration originated in the 1860's during the Gold Rush day and is now the largest Asian event in North America as well as the largest general market event in Northern California. The celebration includes two major fairs, the Chinese New Year Flower Fair and Chinatown Community Street Fair. All the festivities culminate with Chinese New Year Parade.

Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco is the largest celebration of its kind outside of Asia.

Not everyone can travel to Munich for the famous Oktoberfest so here is a list of Oktober-festivities in the US.http://germanfood.about.com /od/celebrations/a/Oktoberfest -In-The-USA.htm

two of the employees of German origin suggested an autumn festival similar to the Oktoberfest held annually in Munich.

Where to Celebrate the Popular German Heritage and Drinking Festival

Who can forget Ferris Bueller singing "Danke Schön" on a float at the German heritage parade in the film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off?" Indeed, German roots run deep in Chicago, which makes it one of the best places in the country for Oktoberfest revelry.

Ok , we need a little test , if this is true , then expel all 11 million plus , we all know there are a lot more. have those companies look for American citizen workers and pay them the wage that they should be paying . Instead of min wage . yes they can do it . then see how many jobs are left without workers after 6 month trial . then we can have guest worker permits and that it no , no ,no citizen offer . they are here to work remember so what do they need citizenship for??? Give them the job for a time limit . They go home someone else comes and takes their place. Maybe an ID like a hotel card that wont work in the machine after a certain date . not working no job no pay go back home. You really think people are on unemployment because they like it ??? just how are they living ??? and without it ??? it does run out . Are they stealing food and rent , etc, from the illegals???

Maybe you allowed it I never allowed it at all and there are millions who didn’t. Every time we complained we were called racists and our government ignored us in favored of the special interest money and votes. Your implications that all Americans allowed it is simply non-sense.
We demand enforcement of our laws now.
Good
