D from Australia:
Good day to you again. I would like to add one other thing about this discussion
of immigrants to this country. You state that the Mexican ancestors were here
before mine. So am I to understand that any Mexican that feels like it can just come
here and do, and take what they want? Like I stated before, my grandfather,
not my great-grandfather, or my great-great-grandfather, but my grandfather,
came here from Ireland around 1905 I believe. He met a native American and
got married, had 9 boys, and I am the son of one of those boys. My grandmother
was from the Cherokee Nation. Full blooded. My father was what at one time was
considered a "half breed", a connotation that doesn't bode well, even today.
I am one quarter Cherokee and one quarter Irish from my father, and one quarter
Irish, and one quarter English from my mother.
The point is this: If any group of people have a right to be here in this country, it
is the Native Americans, the INDIANS. Not the Mexicans, not the blacks who were
forced into slavery in this country, as I am sure they would be happier back in
Africa, and I would like to see them leave for there on the next boat back, and damn
sure not the mophead camel jockeys that drive the taxi's in Washington D.C.
I believe there were something like 385 treaties signed by the government of the
United States, with the Indians over the years. And do you know what? NOT ONE
of these treaties have ever been honored by our government over the years, even
though you can go to museums, and to the archives and see them with your own
eyes, written in ink, black and white, and they have never been honored. Where is
there honor within this government? Although I am only 1/4 Indian, I am not going to
"go on the warpath" and demand, demand, take, take, pollute the country as Scott
asserted, which is true by the way, and create a drain on the economy because I
want the government to feel sorry for me like the poor taco biters from down south
want us to do. I feel I have way more right to be here in North America than any
of these slimeballs from Mexico, or Iran, or Pakistan, or wherever you name. If they
want to come here LEGALLY, abide by the same laws I have to abide by, don't destroy
the land and waters, pay taxes, be productive citizens, then that is a different story.
Don't come here and have 15 of their little brown bambinos, paid for by the hard
working people of this country, leach off of welfare, expect food stamps, disrespect
the law, ghetto the neighborhoods, pile their 30 year old cars up in the front yards
upon cinder blocks, leave them their forever for the world to marvel at them, and
then wonder why we think they suck. Get the point????
Please don't tell me I have no right being here, or that someone from down Mexico way
has more of a right, just because they slaughtered a couple hundred helpless trappers
and plainmen in a place called the Alamo. And by the way, there were about a thousand
of these burro riding assholes when they stormed the place. What a fair fight!
