Thank You

Illegals don't take jobs Americans refuse to do. Rather, they prevent wages from rising to the natural level that would make those jobs attractive. As a result, food is much cheaper than it's supposed to be, so people eat too much of it and become unhealthy, which puts a strain on the healthcare system.

This especially affects the Hispanic community, which has a serious problem with obesity and type II diabetes. Therefore, to save the Hispanics, we must charge them more for food. And the only way to charge more for food is to prevent them from flooding over the border and depressing wages.

Save a Hispanic life! Deport an illegal!

Jeez. 90% of what's said on this blog is worth of a tshirt...if you could somehow make the font small enough to fit it on a tshirt.

Good post, as usual. You've made me think. Tonight when I get 3/4th's schnickered on effen+ sprite, instead of going to Chicago's little village neighborhood to get myself a burrito, I'm going to go to white castle instead.

It was suggested by a caller on the Michael Medved show that unemployed Americans go to some of the employers that will be short on staff due to Monday's Teach-American-A-Lesson Day and apply for the protesters' jobs.

As for burritos, we make them at our house based on an ancient Mexican recipe, modified by a Polish grandmother, and remodified to conform with Jewish dietary laws. They rock. But we only put the best stuff in them.

As John (fought in Vietnam) Kerry boldly stated to congress, "we can't defeat communism everywhere". Roll over, stupid Americans, lie down and sleep. Stand for nothing. Only then will your hearts be pure. Free yourselves of criticism, understand the nuance. Forget the "can do" spirit of a past age or you'll be known as arrogant. Know the freedom of can't!

I like burritos... but I make them myself. It's easy and they're tasty.

Support American-Made Burritos!

I say we allow Mexican citizens to enter this country on sociological asylum. Insofar as Mexican society and culture is broken, it fits. When half of Mexico's population is living here (legally and paying taxes I might add) it'll be easy to annex the country. By the 22nd century the USA will extend all the way down to Patagonia. We could then look to the acquisition of Africa.

Since it is on 'May Day', I think it should be called: 'Pinko de Mayo'.

It's not even pro-mojado. It's anti-capitalist.

Does this mean we have to start calling burritos "Freedom Wraps" now?

Next Friday, which I understand some people celebrate as "Cinco de Mayo" (I NEITHER SPEAK OR SPELL SPANISH) I plan to fly and display the American Flag. I'm an American and I can fly my flag whenever I want!

What really chaps is that they're gonna want Friday off, too... Cinco de Mayo.

I agree with B. Durbin. "I like burritos... but I make them myself. It's easy and they're tasty. Support American-Made Burritos!"

My ropa vieja/bean/cheese burritos rock!
Ditto my fajitas burritos. And my chili colorado.

If I do say so myself.

One nice thing about burritos is that they can be made in big batches and frozen. Nuked for restoration. Try doing THAT with your ham sandwich.

It worked for the muslims with the "Cartoon Riots" but may backfire on the Mexicans, just not scary.

But how about this:

Jury Pool Intimidation?

Black Panthers will demo at DUKE

next week!

"promised not to bring weapons!"

Now that the Muslims have proved that our media and book stores are afraid of their threats of violence, it is no stretch that this will be used by other groups.

I wonder if some of the "hung" juries in terrorist trials are not in fact;

juror fear of retribution by muslims?

It worked for the MOB.

All cable stations are reporting on Black Panther protest - and also reporting that students are fearfull.

So Duke got a "promise"!

Imagine White Male Athletes marching thru Durham - what would the media label that?

But now that the elites have given their imprimatur to "fear of violent groups" will it spread in popularity just as has the Monica/Bill unsexual relations relations?

Send the illegals home. And not to nearest port of entry as is current (unenforced) practice. Deportation to furthest port of entry in Mexico (furthest south) and release with $50 will be more than sufficient to slow the rate of immediate return.

As to common food comentary in the thread: I like mine as well, with steak and potatoes in them...

“The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.” - Albert Camus

America is the land of immigrants, and if you don't belive that that's true you can ask your parents and your grandparents how they got here.

You know why people hire immigrants, No? It’s because we lazy Americans demand too much and work very little, we like the easy way out. A Hispanic immigrant can do the work of two or even three Americans with the same low pay. You want immigrants out of the U.S.A. then prepare for chaos. Educate yourself before, trying to "Educate" others with a vague opinion. Unless you’re a Native American you shouldn’t oppose immigration because you wouldn’t be here today.
