Traveling to South Africa, Guest Bloggers Needed


I just wanted to let readers know that I will be traveling to South Africa this coming week, and will be in flight over the weekend. So, this means very little to no posts. Because during my time in South Africa I will be away from a computer, and may have little Internet access, I am not sure how much I will be posting next week.

I would like to invite regular readers to email me with guest-posts for me to include here in Latino Issues. You are welcome to include your nam,e, blog address, and email at the end of your guest-post as a way for me to say thank you. I would really enjoy getting some diverse perspectives to be included, though they should be from a TRUTH basis. I am pro-life, conservative, and from a judeo-Christian worldview. While I don't expect my guest bloggers to be of any particular faith, there should be an intent to seek Truth (real Truth, not the liberal kind). I have never had a guest blogger, so for now, I think you can email your final, spell-checked essay, news story, or commentary to jmsierra_AT_josuesierra_dot_net.

One Idea: I would like to have guest blog on abortion and how that issue is affecting the Latino community.

You don't have to be Latino, you CAN be controversial, and you can speak about any subject of interest and value to US citizens. I would specially like to get some guest posts about Colorado politics, the SCOTUS nomination process, Katrina reconstruction efforts, or any recent immigration stories out there.

Well, I hope this request gets a lot of response. I will be back here on the 27th, and I just may pop in a few times and do some blogging from South Africa if I am able to get an Internet connection.

Best Regards,

Josue Sierra
A Latino Conservative Blogger

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…
