The media keeps telling me (in worried tones filled with dire implications) that the Tea Parties are filled with white people

Yet, viagra sales unhealthy I’ve never heard them describe the pro-immigration marches and rallies as being filled with hispanics.

(For the record, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hispanics, I’m just pointing out the double standard.)

    I question your assumption. I think the media accurately describes pro-immigration rallies as being well-attended by Hispanics, and the last few decades make the connection obvious.

    So you have a theory that connects white folks, cul-de-sacs, Fox News, bloggers with too much free time on their hands, willful denial of recent history, spelling errors and whining about taxes?

    I’ve been to a Tea Party or two in my time. People of all colors and races attend. It just doesn’t fit the media narrative to show such things.

    As opposed to the TEA party narrative, which insists the crowd isn’t uniformly white and whiny about taxes.

    I’m waiting for their platform and plan. Anyone seen it yet?

    U.S.A. is made by immigrants – granted, but they SHOULD be LEGAL immigrants! Illegal immigrants do not portray what the real America is about. It is about following the law, abiding by its rules and regulations, and not about what you can do to drain the system for all it’s worth.
