May Day! May Day!

April 29, 2008

The illegal alien crowd is getting restless.

“The March For The New Majority”
WTH? Someone is getting way to big for their britches!
And should be put in their place once and for all!
Enough is enough!
ILLEGAL means ILLEGAL!

“We call things racism just to get attention. We reduce complicated problems to racism, not because it is racism, but because it works.” ~ Alfredo Gutierrez, political consultant, as quoted by Richard de Uriarte, The Phoenix Gazette, March 14, 1992 (quoted in The ProEnglish Advocate, 1st quarter, 2002).

    What a crock – I am beginning to think Ron Paul was right.

    Yes as always. Give them a public stage and they are there. As long as the cause is not in America’s best interest that is.

    I’ll say it is a crock. The streets will be flooded again. The date of May 1st itself has some significance. The day known as a communist/socialist day of celebration.
    Who are they trying to kid.
