Speak for yourself ONLY. Stop generalizing how many people on here agree with your claim of "nobody wants your sorry asses in our country". Sounds like you're the only one who falls under that.  (May 2, 2012 | post #29)

Immigration Reform

Is harmful era of Raza Studies finally over in Tucson pub...

First off, I never was talking about the books used in teaching that class. That was a conversation you and Rico had. I was primarily talking about the Latino civil rights advocacy group called "La Raza" which, to answer your first question to me, DOES actually improve the lives of non-Mexicans. Of course, when I say non-Mexicans, I mean Hispanic people who aren't originally from Mexico. You do know that Hispanic people don't originate from Mexico only, do you? Secondly, LaRaza does NOT encourage illegals to come here and live off of the American taxpayers and YOU KNOW IT! I find it funny that I'm being told to think critically from someone who can't even get their tropes that reference cults right. The cult being referenced in said trope actually drank Flavor Aid NOT Kool Aid. It's basically misattributed since both are brands of powdered fruit juice mix. I also think it's a rather offensive thing to claim when someone disagrees with your viewpoint given that it's a reference to Jonestown.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #129)

Who died and let YOU determine whether or not La Raza only meant the race? Look it up and you will see that the meaning that YOU and ilk like yours force the rest of us to believe is the one true definition is actually a mistranslation, also a transliteration of the word. It actually DOES mean the people. Don't twist this around to suit your xenophobic beliefs.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #120)

Gun Control - Fort Lee, NJ

Dubtek, a gun license is primarily used for those who hunt or shoot clay discs as a sport. It's rare that they're used as weapons to shoot people. What should be done is to make a law requiring those who wish to resell a firearm do so through a licensed gun shop.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #4)

Casey Anthony - Alloway, NJ

The prosecution's case against her had a lot of holes in it. To me, it's likely that Caylee drowned accidentally and Casey panicked.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #2)

Occupy Wall St - Alloway, NJ

It's time to resurrect the middle class to what it was 30 years prior to August 5, 1981. That date was the exact day that then President Reagan killed the middle class. People need jobs that can pay enough for them to pay their bills, put food on their table and have enough left over to use at their own discretion. Bring back unions as well! I am a DEMOCRAT from Alloway, which is seen as a four-letter word amongst the majority, and I'm proud of it!  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #2)

Immigrants & K-12 - Alloway, NJ

It's discriminatory, not to mention unfair, to allow us to pick and choose who we can provide schooling for based on their immigration status. It's not too surprising to know that the know-nothing movement never truly died. It went underground, or it was rarely talked about in the open. I'm ashamed to live in a county narrow-minded enough to want to deny young illegal immigrants the right to an education. If they come here seeking a better life, it doesn't make them illegal. They're immigrants like those before us. Get over it, if it's not ALL white (which seems to be the root of the problem with most here), it's actually all right. A little diversity is a GOOD thing.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #1)

Civil Unions - Alloway, NJ

It's a start, but it makes more sense to allow gays to marry. Who are we to tell them that they aren't allowed to marry because a group of homophobes claim it's against the bible(and it ISN'T)? Besides, I have a gay cousin and I'd like it for him and his partner to be able to marry the person they love like his sisters did.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #1)

LaRaza should be taught because it actually covers the history of Mexican-Americans in the US and the contributions many Mexican-Americans have made to improve lives of ALL people in addition to their fellow Mexican-Americans. The last time I looked LaRaza is actually a Latino Civil Rights group. Since when did that mean they were a supremacy group? Besides, Mexican-American history is a part of American History.  (Jan 20, 2012 | post #118)
