SB 1070 Boycott Over? NCLR Says, "Yes," Sal Reza Says, "Hell, No!"

Boycott over? Depends whom you ask. Sand Land's nativism, however, persists.

Friday evening, I received the letter below signed by Janet Murguria of the National Council of La Raza, essentially declaring that the boycott of Arizona over Senate Bill 1070 is finito.

Granted, the letter does point out that the boycott that developed in response to state Senate President Russell Pearce's nativist legislation, most of which has been enjoined by the federal court, has had a potent effect. 

But, the NCLR, along with a couple of other groups, concludes that it's time for the economic sanctions to end. This, supposedly in response to an umbrella organization calling itself the Real Arizona Coalition.

Here's an excerpt:

...we understand and appreciate the reasons why you believe the boycott should end. In that vein, we are also aware of the hardship it has imposed on many of the workers, businesses, and organizations whose interests we seek to advance. We are hopeful that the more respectful and civil tone that you and many others have worked so hard to establish in recent months will continue.

In that spirit, effective immediately, our three organizations will suspend the boycott and cease all efforts to discourage conventions or meetings in Arizona, or to discourage our partners from participating in such meetings.  In addition, we will communicate our decision to our allies and partners who supported the boycott in the hope that they will join us.

However, in the event that the injunction preventing implementation of key provisions of SB 1070 is lifted, or if the state enacts additional measures that would violate the civil rights of the communities we represent, I hope you understand that we would reserve the right to take appropriate action.

Responding to the letter's release, Sal Reza, leader of the Phoenix-based human rights group Puente, noted that the boycott of Arizona has always been a spontaneous thing. No one group started it, and no one group can end it.

"The boycott was done by the people themselves, when they began avoiding Arizona," said Reza ."The only ones that can call off the boycott are the people themselves."

He scoffed at the letter, vowing that the economic pressure on Arizona would continue from the ground up.

"We don't recognize their authority, period," Reza said of the NCLR. "They have no authority over us."

Additionally, he blasted the letter as a cowardly "corporate move," one motivated by money.

Likewise, Javier Gonzalez, spokesman for the Sound Strike, the musicians' boycott of the Grand Canyon State, was dismissive of the announcement.

"It's a little bit arrogant," he told me. "We take our lead from more grass-roots organizations. We don't take our cue from the NCLR."

Still, with Carlos Santana playing here this month, Mexican-American recording star Jenni Rivera playing Phoenix in November, and the hell-raisin', anti-SB 1070 Unitarian Universalists planning to have their convention in Phoenix in 2012, it's obvious that enthusiasm for the boycott has dwindled.

"A lot of people are not respecting the boycott anymore," Reza admitted. "We've lost the catalyst we had last year with 1070."

He gave the UUs a pass based on their civil disobedience last year, when 1070's passage provoked massive demonstrations in Arizona and the rest of the nation. As for Jenni Rivera, who played one of those demonstrations in 2010, and Carlos Santana, who has been outspoken in his opposition to 1070 and similar laws in other states, Reza seemed more annoyed than anything.

"Everybody has their price," he said. "It's just a matter of finding it. Not me. They'll have to kill me first."

For my money, Arizona remains the most racist state in the nation, with nativism a tapeworm-like force, gnawing at the innards of its body politic. That's why I've always thought Arizona deserving of an economic cordon sanitaire

However, like all natural phenomenon, such spontaneous activism ultimately changes, evolves, morphs into other forms and tactics. Hopefully, the boycott will shift shape into an entity that can one day eradicate that monstrous tapeworm once and for all. Though, I wonder if it'll take another generation to off it. 

Letter to Real Arizona Coalition announcing lifting of economic boycott of Arizona


Sept. 9, 2011

 

 

September 9, 2011
 
Thank you for your letter dated August 23, 2011, requesting that we end the formal boycott against conventions and major meetings in Arizona that we and other organizations called for after the enactment of SB 1070.  Before responding to your specific request, it is important to recall why we called for the boycott in the first place and the results it achieved, both in Arizona and beyond.
 
We vigorously opposed SB 1070 because we believe that, if implemented, it would result in wholesale violations of the civil rights of Latinos, Asian Americans, and others perceived to be immigrants.  We argued that the law was unconstitutional, would likely never be fully implemented, and would cost Arizona taxpayers millions of dollars to litigate.  Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we pointed out that SB 1070 was not a real solution to fix our broken immigration system.  
 
Because we believed that a draconian measure like SB 1070 required an equally serious response, we and many other organizations declared, abided by, and encouraged others to participate in a formal boycott of major meetings and conventions in Arizona involving significant travel from out-of-state.  We did not take this action lightly.  As we noted at the time, we were fully aware that boycotts are blunt instruments, and that it would likely have negative repercussions on opponents, as well as supporters, of SB 1070.
 
As civil rights and advocacy organizations that believe deeply in the urgent need to fix our broken immigration system, we take little comfort that our predictions have been borne out.  Both the U.S. District Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals have found key provisions of the law to be unconstitutional, and litigation costs to the state have been significant and may grow further if appeals are pursued.  While it is true that the most egregious provisions of the law were therefore not implemented, it is also true that practices conducted by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office that are analogous to those that would have been implemented statewide under SB 1070 are the subject of an ongoing federal civil rights investigation.  We remain confident that authorities will find that such practices violate civil rights laws.  Furthermore, the nation is no closer today to achieving effective, sustainable reform of our immigration laws; to the contrary, a strong case can be made that divisive debates over SB 1070 and similar state laws have been a major distraction that has diverted attention from the discussion of real solutions.
 
Regarding the boycott itself, one independent study by the Center for American Progress found that current and future tourism losses to the state have totaled more than $750 million in lost jobs, economic activity, and tax revenue.  More than 400 nationally prominent artists pledged not to perform in Arizona, and many states and local jurisdictions have banned employees from traveling to Arizona on business.
 
In addition, the Arizona Employers for Immigration Reform testified that one major manufacturer decided to locate in another state due to SB 1070, resulting in over $1 billion of lost economic investment, and that other state-based companies have lost numerous contracts.  And while some Arizona officials have denied that SB 1070 has adversely affected the state's reputation, the fact that the state government has had to launch a marketing campaign despite a highly constrained budget belies those assertions.
 
SB 1070 and the resulting boycott had major political effects as well.  For example, one study found that 38,000 more Latino voters turned out in Arizona in 2010 than in the last midterm election.  We also recognize-and applaud-the State Senate's decision earlier this year to reject legislation that would have undermined the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
 
Beyond the impact in Arizona, we are convinced that the boycott has played a significant role in discouraging other states from adopting similar legislation.  In the wake of SB 1070, some pundits predicted that as many as 22 other states would swiftly enact similar laws.  More than a year later, we note that only five-Alabama, Indiana, Georgia, South Carolina, and Utah-have passed laws like SB 1070, and all of them are currently facing legal challenges and have been enjoined by the courts.  
 
In short, we believe that the record clearly demonstrates that enactment of SB 1070 would be unwise, harmful, and counterproductive. 
 
Having said that, we understand and appreciate the reasons why you believe the boycott should end.  In that vein, we are also aware of the hardship it has imposed on many of the workers, businesses, and organizations whose interests we seek to advance.  We are hopeful that the more respectful and civil tone that you and many others have worked so hard to establish in recent months will continue.  
 
In that spirit, effective immediately, our three organizations will suspend the boycott and cease all efforts to discourage conventions or meetings in Arizona, or to discourage our partners from participating in such meetings.  In addition, we will communicate our decision to our allies and partners who supported the boycott in the hope that they will join us.  However, in the event that the injunction preventing implementation of key provisions of SB 1070 is lifted, or if the state enacts additional measures that would violate the civil rights of the communities we represent, I hope you understand that we would reserve the right to take appropriate action.
 
Thank you again for contacting us.  It is our sincere hope that this decision will contribute to a meaningful and constructive dialogue as Arizonans-and all Americans-seek real, lasting solutions to fix our nation's broken immigration system in a way that is consistent with our nation's most fundamental values and principles.
 
Sincerely,

Whoever is advising these illegal lovers is an idiot.  Boycott?  Stupid is as stupid does.  Does not build bridges.  Does not change minds.  Does not warm hearts.  Does not create jobs for displaced citizens.  So keep it up stupids!  You can put a gun to my head and I still won't back down from what I know is right - and that is jobs for citizens, of all colors, before foreigners, of all colors.  End of story.

Bull shit! The boycott will not be over until SB 1070 is repealed, or the ruling that it is unconstitutional is final.

Reza is right. Claiming to call off the boycott when they did not organize the boycott in the first place is rank presumption, arrogance of the worst sort.

And why do it?

Yes, the most objectionable parts of 1070 have been blocked, but that is not in the slightest bit due to a change of heart on the part of Arizona's political leaders. If they had their way, 1070 would be fully implemented.

So keep the boycott going!

Is Nevada being boycotted as well?  

Truth is, there is no substantiating evidence to show the boycott was effective in any way.

If the illegals were all white and the citizens were all white it would still be discrimination based on nationality and the fact that citizens should have first choice and first, second and third chances at all domestic jobs.  This is not a racist issue.  This is not a civil rights issue.  The illegals and their supporters make it a race issue because they have no other legitimacy.   The fact is, even if it were true that illegal workers in the US were being discriminated against due to their race - it is moot - those jobs belong to citizens first, last and forever.  There isn't enough room on this boat for all - end of story.  The answer is not to make all illegals citizens - the answer is to employee the citizens you already have first.  Any other answer proves that social unrest is the goal of the elite.

It can't end given that racist are using Arizona as example, a social lab to implement similar racist laws in other states. The boycott must continue until SB1070 is taken out, Muerto el perro se acaba la rabia, but until the dog is killed, rabies continue.

JESUS

Arizona is a POOPOO hole.  I will continue to boycott!  I even cancel my godaddy domains (200 of them) I have 4 friends I discourage from going to AZ on vacation (Grand Canyon and CRAP). South Arizona should succeed and the north az and become part of CA and the north az will be NOTHING.  The Mexicans spend billions of dollars in the border. Mexico is the 12th Economy in the world but this racist pigs rather attack the number one economic partner the US has.  (AND NO IT IS NOT CANADA IF YOU COUNT THE BILLIONS MEXICAN TOURIST SPEND A YEAR IN THE US)  But the white ignorant SOB's will never see it.  DO NOT VISIT AZ THEY SUKKK!

Hold it amigo's. We are  ignoring one very important individual here that wasn't given emphasis above where the boycott is concerned. That would be Raul, "lets economically nuke Arizona's small business, to help Mexico's and My illlegal immigration policy" Grijalva.

He jumped on board quickly though, didn't he? He got his dirty little hands in the action real soon. Of course, he jumped off when he was told he was going to lose his gravy train job if he kept it up, so he just went slinking away from the whole issue like a wet poodel with its tail between its legs--didn't he!? Didn't he boy!!??

In this time of urgent need fordesperate jobless Americans, the idiot “Liberal Progressives” in Sacramento,California refuse to enact E-Verify as voluntary deterrent against illegalworkers. E-Verify a simple and easy electronic verification system, was originallynearly tabled by Arch-Liberal, Anti-Sovereignty Senator Harry Reid of Nevada,that next to California has a high population of illegal migrants andimmigrants. These are a majority of migrants, entering unlawfully through ourSouthern border and illegal immigrants of 49 percent, who overstay their visasfrom foreign countries, entering by plane as tourists.

 

An estimate by the Pew Hispanic Centerin its surveys, have assessed of upwards of 8.5 million illegal aliens workingin low income, to upper management employment. Regardless of our overwhelming jobless,the legislature passed AB 1236, which would forbid state agencies, countyadministrations, and local districts in the state from insisting any businessentity in using the federal E-Verify program, even when that employer is a serviceprovider to the federal government. Insist Governor Jerry Brown veto this ominousbill. You can also contact the Governor’s office at 916-445-2841 and that asa voter you resent these politicians from ignoring the voice of the people,stifled by radical organization like La Raza and open border activists.

 

Thewebsite NumbersUSA stated: --

“California has the second highestunemployment rate in the U.S., yet elected officials in Sacramento just sent abill to the Governor’s desk that will further diminish job opportunities,"Chairman Lama Smith said. "California’s E-Verify opt-out bill showsexactly why we need a federal E-Verify law.  Without a federal law on thebooks, some states—including those with the largest illegal immigrantpopulations, such as California—will be free to hire illegal workers.

“That’s why I have introduced the Legal WorkforceAct," he added. "This—MANDATORY--bill requires all U.S. employersto use E-Verify to check whether prospective employees are legally authorizedto work in the U.S.  This program is free, quick and easy to use – thoseeligible to work are immediately confirmed 99.5% of the time. This bill is oneof the most significant steps we can take to put millions of Americans back towork and curb incentives that drive illegal immigration.”

“Illegal immigration cost Californians a net of more than$20 billion in 2010 in services and incarceration costs," CaliforniaRepresentative and House Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Elton Gallegly said."Yet California continues to provide magnets to draw illegal immigrants tothe state. That includes free education for illegal immigrant adults, sanctuarycities and – soon – an opt-out for E-Verify.

In June, Chairman Smith introduced the Legal WorkforceAct (H.R. 2164). Chairman Gallegly is an original cosponsor.  Thisbill could open up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans by requiring allU.S. employers to use E-Verify.

A federal E-Verify law for all U.S. employers is essentialto protecting jobs for American workers and reducing the jobs magnet thatencourages illegal immigration.  Only 17 out of the 50 states and the Districtof Columbia have an E-Verify mandate in place. And unfortunately, these statelaws are only applied in a limited way or are rarely enforced.” If we allow organizationsas the US Chamber of Commerce, the American restaurant Association and the trade Unions.

My vote is going to whoever is thefrontrunner of the Tea Party, as well as my family, as both Democrats andDemocrats have their own decisive agenda's. Each administration has refused tobuild the real double fence or enforce the 1986 Immigration Control and reformact. The TEA PARTY will improve on both of these "Rules of Law" andstick like glue to the contents of the U.S. Constitution. As In Article IV,Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union aRepublican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them againstInvasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (whenthe Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

 

The flood of illegalworkers almost certainly constitutes an invasion. The TEA PARTY will table anyform of Amnesty or Immigration Reform and will apply the statutes in the 1986Simpson/Mazzoli with strict enforcement according to the bill. Any SanctuaryCity or State ordinances designed to cater to illegal aliens, will lose federalfunding and expect ICE sweeps in the future. E-Verify and "SecureCommunities" will no longer be a voluntary measure, but applied as amandate to every state. The TEA PARTY will amend the 14th Amendment, so 300.000children of illegal aliens annually can no longer get a foothold in America, toransack the people's welfare programs and public assistance.

 

 

All new laws will bedesigned to stop economic illegal aliens from the financial avalanche that ishappening now, which includes CHAIN MIGRATION. Each and every ImmigrationReform package harvests millions more people through CHAIN MIGRATION, whichincludes the State Dream Acts. All visas will be decided on the skills andqualifications of the person who wishes to immigrate and unwelcome illegalnewcomers will be punished harshly for entry. The 2006 Secure Fence Act will befully enforced, with additional measures that should include 5000 NationalGuardsman. Only the TEA PARTY will enforce our laws, as signified in the livingUS Constitution. The $113 Billion dollars illegally collected by the IRS tobenefit illegal aliens must be ended for good and not be further spiraling outof control because each government refuses to enforce the laws.

Blue stateslike the Sanctuary state of California, must be watched by unbiased referees,to contain illegal aliens from voting. California’s, Nevada’s lax voting laws,need to be revised so everybody must show to forms of official ID, withviolators of the law heavy fines and a term in prison. In furtherance for zero-tolerance laws—no drivers licenses for foreignnationals as this is an official breeder document, that in other statesunlawful recipients can apply for state ID cards and other miscellaneousidentification.  

 

As a postscript, President Obama offereda speech on jobs in construction specifically repairing Bridges andhighways.  We must insure illegal aliens are not employed by criminalcontractors, who have encourages this type of violation of our laws.  Be a“whistle-blower” if you find individuals, who seem suspicious in youroccupation and inform ICE or local police Department. Read all the incendiarynewspaper and media articles at “American Patrol” that sends the Liberalpropaganda activists slinking in dark corners. Lastly, learn of the rot thathas propagated in Washington and individual States at “Judicial Watch.”

Actually the Federal Government has become a "push me-pull you".While the Congress debates E-Verify, Hilda Solis, the Secretary of Labor, has made agreements with most Central and South American countries to protect the working rights of their citizens whether they are here legally or not. At the same time states are passing their own laws to limit the rights of unregistered foreign nationals, Obama has ordered "administrative discretion" be used to decide whether people should be deported or not.It's become a very confusing situation.

Great news Dave, that the invasion is going to end because of the Tea Party. I can't say I really believe it though. The Tea Party will be co-optedm, if it isn't already, by the evil Wall Street, job outsourcing elite and other anti-Americans.

Anti-Americans, n.., 1. People who do things that hurt taxpaying American citizens and their culture, 2) The Democrat Party. 3) The Republican Party

So, you can't offer any rebuttal and simply resort to calling everyone names. No logical reasons why unregistered foreigners should remain here in violation of US law?And Americans have every right to be "nativist" in our country as much as Mexicans do in theirs. Mexico already has the same laws as Arizona regarding intruders to their nation.That obviously upsets you, but your lack of any cogent arguments show that you are not very bright to begin with. Do a little research yourself and you might actually have something to "cut & paste" that makes some sense.

You are the DUMBASS.  Citizens of Mexico in Mexico get first choice on jobs.  Citizens of Jordan, in Jordan, get first choice at jobs.  Same all over the world except in Ponzi scheme financial based nations like US that needs to genocide citizens in favor of new bodies from anywhere.   US citizens are merely stating that they need the jobs first and that does not make them racist or nativist since US citizens of all colors are united in wanting the jobs for US citizens first.  You are just a troll spreading lies.

The boycott mostly was hurting Hispanic businesses more than anyone else. LaRaza's campaign to "end racial profiling" was misguided at best. Most people outside of the Hispanic community didn't notice it's effects and it was the Obama Administration that put a court hold on SB1070, not LaRaza or any NGO. The courts are presently deciding whether the laws are discriminatory or not and all the protesting and boycotts anyone can muster is not likely to have an effect on their decision.SB1070 itself, although called "draconian" is actually in line with the immigration laws of most nations, notably including our neighbor. The law applies to everyone from everywhere so there is really nothing racial about it. The only thing that might make it seem racial is the fact that 80% of illegal aliens in the US are from Spanish speaking nations and 62% of those are from Mexico. That makes it not a matter of profiling so much as a case of demographics.Our laws don't make distinctions about race or national origin. LaRaza and organizations like them are simply demanding exception based on race and that is not the way it works in the United States or even for that matter, Mexico.

 Your lack of knowledge of the Spanish language is obvious from your statement that La Raza's meaning is, "politically-incorrect name, since they emphasize on "raza" or "race", when they should be advocating for people as people."

 la raza a term often mistakenly translated into english as meaning "the race", the true meaning of la raza is much closer to "the people".http://www.urbandictionary.com... "La Raza" symbolically means "the people".http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...

La Ra·za n. Mexicans or Mexican Americans considered as a group, sometimes extending to all Spanish-speaking people of the Americas. Mexicans or Mexican Americans considered as a group, sometimes extending to all Spanish-speaking people of the Americas. [American Spanish, the people.]http://www.thefreedictionary.c...

The urban dictionary... wikipedia... the free dictionary... wow, I'm very impressed. I can see that your sources are not legitimate, but they actually prove my point. La Raza advocates for "Mexican Americans..." blah, blah, blah. The term "la raza" may have taken that connotation of "people" over time, but the root has to do with RACE whether you like to accept the truth or continue to play your semantics' game. The fact that you have to quote those "definitions" from your choice of "dictionaries" means that you have to find ways to defend the term "La Raza" because is an ambiguous term. If it means "people", then call it "people" not "raza"; call it National Council of The People. The connotation could mean "people" if I say, i.e. "orale mi raza" o "si se puede raza" because I am referring to my own people; within that context you can argue "raza" means "people", but since I know Spanish much better than you think, "La Raza" actually means "My own people", "My people" "People from my same ethnic group or race", thus The National Council of People of my own Race. Does the NCLR advocates for blacks? For Asians? For Anglos? Do they advocate for all people? No, no, no, no to all of the above. They advocate for people, yes, but people from their own RACE. so "raza" as in NCLR means RACE. Educate yourself, and if you know Spanish that well, you will understand this: "Al windtalker le paso lo que al perro del Tio Kiko, que cuando salio a ladrar le rompieron el hocico...:

windtalker
windtalker

From NCLR"Many people incorrectly translate our name, "La Raza," as "the race." While it is true that one meaning of "raza" in Spanish is indeed "race," in Spanish, as in English and any other language, words can and do have multiple meanings. As noted in several online dictionaries, "La Raza" means "the people" or "the community." Translating our name as "the race" is not only inaccurate, it is factually incorrect. "Hispanic" is an ethnicity, not a race. As anyone who has ever met a Dominican American, Mexican American, or Spanish American can attest, Hispanics can be and are members of any and all races.".......Besides the Spaniards and the Indians, there were many other groups that contributed to the Hispanic melting pot. The Iberian Peninsula was a mix of many peoples: the mysterious "Iberians," Phoenicians, Greeks, Celts, Romans, the Teutonic Goths, the Moors and the Jews. Other non-Spanish Europeans have also come to Latin America: Germans, French, English, Italians, and Dutch, for example. Middle Eastern immigrants were mostly from Lebanon and Palestine. Also, there have been immigrants from East Asia, mostly China and Japan. Blacks from Africa were brought over and settled largely, on Islands, in coastal areas. In certain regions you can still detect strong Negroid facial features.Generally speaking, the genome research confirmed what was already obvious about the mixed origins of the Hispanic population. The project concluded that Hispanics are the product of a mixture of 435 ethnic groups.The National Council of La Raza spends most of its time protecting and advancing the rights of Hispanics through advocacy and community work. So yes NCLR does advocate for Blacks, Asians, Anglos, and others.

It does not take being white to be racist, but you demonstrate that quite admirably.And what part of "illegal alien" don't YOU understand? They are not from this country, not citizens and decided to come here without permission.As for the facts, go to Wikipedia and look up "illegal immigration".

"Just so you know, I'm not white.It does not take being white to be racist."

I'm not sure that those two statements, taken together, send the message you intended. I suspect a Freudian slip.

What part of "racial profiling" don't YOU understand. SB 1070, in practice, would criminalize ethnicity, and result in a brown skin and high cheekbones being enough to get you pulled over and detained.. Screw that. You would have Hispaño and First Nations people treated like Jews in occupied Warsaw. Between you and me, there is no "us." I cannot respect you.

Good post but what arguments has he actually made? If America won't immediately agree to make an exception to our laws for people based on race or national origin then we must be "xenophobic"?All I have seen so far are his comments consist of calling anyone who he doesn't agree with all kinds of names.I went through and flagged his comments. You should too.

Since you can't seem to discuss without being insulting, I took the time to flag all the vile comments you made.

Reza and his group simply don't careabout the effects of the boycott because they don't have real jobs. They areworthless bums who don't take showers everyday; just get close to them (if youdare) in case you doubt it. They don't work to make a living. They don't get upin the morning like thousands of us do to do our jobs, take our children toschool, and earn a decent if humble living. Too sad pseudo activists don't havereal jobs. They live off the tax-deductible donations and funds organizationslike the Ford Foundation give to them. They travel all over the place when manyworking folks and their families can't even take a short vacation. Decentworking people don't recognize Reza's authority either because he just does nothave any moral authority -period. He spends thousands of dollars paying for a biasedradio show; where does that money come from? Reza’s people don’t pledge allegianceto the flag of the U.S., and call Bolivia’s Evo Morales their “president”. Now,as for the NCLR, they have become so corporate-like, money-driven, and political-ambitiousthat they have lost all touch with everyday immigrant families. Besides, they oughtto change their so politically-incorrect name, since they emphasize on"raza" or "race", when they should be advocating for peopleas people. As for this sad, pseudo-journalist, biased blogger, one-sidedMexican wannabe appropriately called “bastard”, don’t forget that he is a paidemployee who writes what he’s told by his boss. Last but not least, the RealArizona Coalition should be called the Real Arizona Ambition, and sell-out alsopseudo-journalists like James Garcia ought to bleach their brown noses. Activistslike Reza, corporations like La Raza, gonzo clowns like Lemons, and transitory “coalitions”like the “real ambition” have kidnapped the real cause of hard-working, decentimmigrant families who earn their wages with dignity and pride.

You must be a meth user for that matter.

Your personal attacks and profanity are taking away from any points you might be trying to make. Clean it up and make your point. Otherwise, you have no credibility. Just so you know, you and I are on the same side of the issue.

I have yet to whup anyone's butt through a computer screen. I don't have the need to team up with you. I offer my thoughts for those who wish to read them and don't see the need for the personal attacks and spewing of mush. I also don't care if you think you like me. You don't know me, nor do I know you. I don't care for the way you treat others who simply don't agree with you. Go play on another blog.... Yee Haw...

I got this just for you, JesusHChrist:Su madre es la atracción principal en una demostración del burro en Tijuana. Usted es el producto de esa demostración.Since you're obviously not literate in English, are you literate in Spanish?

He hasn't got any real points to make, Tommy. All he has is his vast, (poorly spelled) knowledge of American Curse words and the thought that he is for some reason superior to everyone because he advocates ignoring US laws.Notice he can't even muster a proper insult.
