HotAir: Reconquista not a fringe movement

Michelle has a great rant today over at HotAir.com! While I continue to believe that Reconquista is a uniquely Mexican problem, I can see it certainly is not a fringe movement. To be clear, I don't have a problem with Mexicans. I do have a problem with a Mexican government that legalizes drug use, refuses to properly fight illegal immigration, and that continues to officially rely on America's prosperity to subsidize its economy.

As for reconquista, I have experienced it first-hand myself. At a scholarship recipients banquet last year, I heard a reconquista MECHISTA recite a violent, and racist poem. She was a Hardvard graduate, high school teacher, activist, and Mecha student group adviser. She was the special guest of a major Hispanic education support foundation in Colorado invited to talk about the importance of education. When the finished, the entire audience--a mix of American supporters and donors, and Latino students and parents--gave her a standing ovation. Enough to say that I was freaked out, and sat quietly refusing to even clap.

Mexico's anti-American culture is a clear and growing threat to America. From legalizing drug, lack of trafficking enforcement, and encouraging illegal immigration, citizens need to take action and demand our leaders take proper action in defense.

A reader has the right suggestion:
We need to remind our Senators and Representatives who elected them and whose interest they are supposed to represent, the citizens of the U.S. not illegal aliens. I think we all should email or otherwise contact them...
Contact your Senators: http://www.senate.gov/general/ co...enators_cfm.cfm

Contact your Representative: http://www.house.gov/writerep/

I would encourage legal immigrants of all nationalities to join in on the effort. If immigrants do not stand at the front of this battle, we are the ones that lose the most. Having been given a second chance, I certainly do not want to see my country reduced to multiculturalistic political correctness and the order of law degraded by racially motivated separatist with a bad entitlement attitude.

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…

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
