    Why, Bruce, see, the GOP aren’t bigoted, they even have Latinos as friends.

    However, ethnicity is not my first requirement in choosing a “friend”. Neither is religion – or lack thereof , sexual orientation, physical attributes, age, or any other superficial characteristic.

    You on the other hand with your pointed sarcasm, have just gone out of your way to denigrate me for no apparent reason other than my opinions.

    If you cannot demonize what someone says, then you Lie about what was said.
    Very Dishonest

    Hispanics have very little in common with Liberals’ platform, they are mostly religious, anti-abortion, self-reliant and distrust government in general (that’s why they come here) Unfortunately lately they been easy prey for Leftist propaganda pushers and scare tactics con-artists, and recent Republican candidates lack of clear message and reluctance to directly attack opponents have not helped.

    Sure the elephants have minority friends – as gardeners, maids, and handymen.

    On another thread you saw fit to call someone dense for no apparent reason other than his opinions.
    English isn’t my mother-tongue, is this the correct expression?:
    pot calling kettle black

    GOP fact – If they won’t vote for us disenfranchise them.

    Actually, the exit polling shows a very different story — not only do Hispanics agree with Democrats on economic issues, they do on social issues as well, including abortion. They don’t like abortion, but they don’t want it banned in all cases either, like the majority of all Americans. Republicans cannot win back the Hispanic vote just by speaking Spanish. They have to start implementing policies that will help middle-class Americans. Cutting income tax rates at the top while trying to privatize Medicare is not appealing to anyone, and the attacks on Planned Parenthood (another one this week in the House!) are killing the GOP among all demographics.

    @Bruce4671

    I guess you’ve forgotten about your negative stance on Hispanics for refusing to learn English right way, like the other immigrants did, (except they didn’t really.)

    As long as Republicans keep making statements like that, immigrants will flock to the Democrats. Putting Marco Rubio & Susana Martinez on stage at GOP conventions won’t help.

    “…recent Republican candidates lack of clear message and reluctance to directly attack opponents have not helped.”

    You’re even funnier than NeoConman!

    I think we all know the GOP wants less government involvement in the boardroom & more government involvement in the bedroom.

    @omQ Release the Desaparecidos

    Yeah that’s good. Don;t forget your mirror as you say it.

    So THAT was the word that set you off? How strange to be offended by that. It’s just an expression. Feelings kind of close to the surface.

    So take your hurt feelings elsewhere. It isn’t logical.

    @Uncle Joe

    No, I have not. Do you think it would be beneficial for a non English speaker to be able to converse with potential employers and understand everything? Or the other way as well. Do you think knowing the language used in the majority of social circumstances would be beneficial? I’m only looking out for them.

    But give it time and you’ll have this country using a two language system everywhere not just in government. Whatever

    @Bruce4671

    No, Bruce, what “set” me off wasn’t you calling Uncle Joe dense, it was you laying sole blame at the feet of immigrants for their isolation, yet you go on to demonstrate why it is they are often isolated: you noticed the differences.


    Calling someone dense is just an expression? Gosh, let me note that down.

    Got, it; why, thank you Bruce, I’ll be speaking in English properly in no time thanks to you!



    ‘Do you think it would be beneficial for a non English speaker to be able to converse with potential employers and understand everything?’
    I’ve often brought up my own anecdotal experiences with regards fellow compatriots in this country and in South Africa. I’ve explained to you and others that it is not as simple, cut & dried as “not wanting to learn” the host nation’s tongue. I’ve mentioned my frustrations & anger at my own community whilst growing up, watching my father having to intervene on behalf of others. It was only when I started helping fellow workers deal with complex situations that I understood more about their fears, their frustrations and obstacles they faced. I’ve also often mentioned that the biggest obstacle, of migrants who struggle to adapt, is the level of education most have had. in their own mother-country.
    But all you see is what you want to see.
