How come immigrants from south of the border stay stuck on the bottom rungs of the proverbial ladder of success for generations?
The United States stealing Aztlán remains a grievous wound with Mexicans, but it’s not as huge an issue for run-of-the-mill Mexis as Know Nothings or Aztlanistas want you to believe.
What’s that saying you gabachos have? Something like, “Fool me once, pendejo eres tú; fool me twice, el pendejo soy yo?” Something like that.
Rather than me prank ustedes, I give you the cruelest joke of all — ex-congressman and eternal Know Nothing Tom Tancredo! For allowing us to debate in Denver last year, I’ve allowed him to answer two questions.
I also despise historical idiots like Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata (his men hung my great-grandfather in front of his family, only because he had the smarts to have his own business and create jobs for their communities).
The U.S. acquired most of the West by force from Mexico, due to the war with Mexico. Agreed the U.S. won the war with Mexico, but did that make it right? Why does Mexico not go to the World Court and sue?
