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.

Since you love the wetbacks so much why don't you go live in Mexico? Those people come over here and bring their culture with them and they expect us to accept the fact that they want the United States to support them. You must be an illigal. Those people have more rights than the United States Citizen, that's why they don't become United States citizens, hell they get everything for free. I work my ass off trying to make it in this economy and guess who get part of my income? You got it...the illegals and the white trash too but at least they didn't come the United States they are already here. They march in our streets for rights on May 5. What do you think would happen to an American if they demanded rights in Mexico that they have no right to? They came here ilegaly and should not be rewarder for that.

A Tennessee couple--Dave and Rebecca Kosmitis both bona fide rednecks, had nine children.
They went to the Doctor to see about getting Dave ‘Fixed.’ The Doctor gladly started the required procedure and asked them what finally made them make the decision. Why, after nine children, would they choose to do this?
Dave replied that he read in a recent article that 1 out of every 10 children being born in the United States was Mexican, and they didn’t want to take any chance of having a Mexican baby because neither of them could speak Spanish.
Reminds me of my cousin (in Mexico's maid) when I went to visit the family in Northern Mexico, with husband and my son (who was about 2 at the time), the maid was stunned, stunned I tell you! she said, and I'll translate for you Mexican wanna-be posers:

I can't believe this child speaks English, and at such a young age!

Now, my story is true, while yours is just a lame joke meant as a put-down.

How dare you compare the illegals in the U.S. to the Jews of Germany. You are a disgusting fabricator and apparently know nothing about the heinous lives Jews lived during the time of WWII.

The Jews were productive CITIZENS of Germany and surrounding countries). They contributed socially and financially to Germany and didn't make excuses or hedge when it came to giving back to their country. They didn't enter Germany illegally and sponge off the country. They didn't expect Germany to feed and clothe them for free. They didn't turn parts of Germany into cesspools and they didn't arrogantly force their culture on anyone. They certainly didn't spit in the faces of the citizens of Germany.

None of this can be said about illegals. That's why they are reviled in the U.S.

The old and tired charade that's not getting them very far these days. Most of the illegal alien enablers have moved on the self-loathers label for those of us standing up for American values and standards.

Folks, mark my words...California WILL be the first state to be OWNED by the Federal Government, and it won't be long...It's so deep in debt that not even China will assist, and that speaks volumes...
In the end, my son and I will be home, and my EDUCATED ass will be fighting to right the bullshit being caused by the mere presence of ILLEGALS...While I will never run for a political position,(even though Marty has elected me President many, many times) I will make damned sure that I put myself in a place where I can benefit AMERICAN'S...
Sounds like a great plan. You will have your work cut out for you coz Illinois is FULL of illegals. Good luck to you and your son. And if you run for president, I will definitely vote for you!

We should welcome all illegal aliens! This was once their country. They should be able to come if they want to. We should accept them with open arms!

Frito,
What did you flag him for? For being a patriot? How is THAT inappropriate?
You see, this is what I mean. When the Mods see the posts you flagged, they'll scratch their heads and think "Huh? There's nothing wrong with that post?!"
All you have achieved is pissing off the Mods for wasting their time. Good job!
Btw, you DO KNOW that flagging posts willy-nilly just shows how desparate and malicious you are, no? YOU DO KNOW THAT, RIGHT? I pick and choose the posts I flag. I don't flag EVERY SINGLE POST OF YOURS, unlike you. Therefore, my flags are more credible to the Mods.
So we will see who will be here this week and who won't.
Frito, only posts to piss people off as I rarely see that he adds anything of value to the discussion!
