Should have cut the Mexicano flag down and re-raised it with the American flag flying high and then dared him to put another Mexicano flag back up above it! I dont know about some of you folks but I think I have had about all the crap I am willing to take.

I have no problem with legal immigration. I do have a problem with a refusal to assimilate into an American way of life, however.

Being in Texas is an ongoing social experiment, as I'm sure it is in the other border states. We obviously have a huge Hispanic population. I think we probably have as many illegals as we do legals. I have no problem with the legals as the Texas/Mexico cultural intermingling is a part of our heritage. Hell, there were quite a few Mexicans who fought along side our founders for freedom. The funny thing is, almost to a person, the legal immigrants I know have a real chip on their shoulder about illegals who choose to go around the system when you talk to them in private, but I rarely see any public statements of disapproval.

Thee is only one flag that is legally allowed to fly at the same height as the Red White and Blue, and it's because we fought alone for our independence. I have no problem with cutural loyalty, but if were to ever see something like the video I would do the same thing, although I think I would run Ol' Glory back up solo.

Allowing illegal aliens a free pass is a slap in the face to anyone who came to our country the legal way, no matter their original country. I have also heard many times our hispanic countrymen who became Americans legally are some of the most bitter of illegal aliens.
Our country is made up of people of all culture and countries, I have no problem with that, however the laws needs to be followed.

I am against immigration when there is no good reason for it. Do we need more bar owners in this country? Do we have so few people on unemployment that we can't find anyone to fill the job positions?

Regardless, that is not about immigration, that is about some sniveling little bitch boy from Mexico who needs to be drop-kicked back over the border. Clearly, by the way he was flying the flags, he is on the wrong side.

I just wish I could ignore the IRS laws like the people who cross our borders illegally ignore our immigration laws. Then after breaking the law I wish I could have a national debate for amnesty for my crime while enjoying every government service handed to me.

I have two very close friends and one family member who are of Mexican decent. One came here illegally, but ultimately went through the necessary steps to be here legally, without "encouragement" from the government. Pedro is as red-blooded american as you or I. "If I can do it, so can they." he says.

My brother in law, as he puts it, is an American of Mexican decent. Not Mexican-American. Born and raised in L.A., he understands Spanish, but cannot speak it. This was revealed to me when we were visiting my wifes family in San Diego. I wanted to go to Tijuana (never been) and Paul said "let's go". I said "cool, and when we get there I'll let you do the bartering because I don't speak Spanish." He said "I don't either." ??? He then explained to me his feelings on being an American of Mexican decent, illegal immigration (want's them all sent back, even his own illegal family members) and the fact that we speak english in this country, not spanish, and they should outlaw anything but english in public.

Another good friend of mine, also of Mexican decent, came to a gun show with me a few years ago. This was around the time that petitions were going around regarding Illegal Immigration. Those same petitions were present at the gun show. And he signed one. Everyone stopped in their tracks. He told the guy he doesn't care if they're in the country, they just need to do it legally and if caught, need to be sent back and forced to do it the right way. EVEN IF IT WAS HIS OWN FAMILY.

So yes, there are many out there of Mexican decent who view themselves as American first, Mexican second, and would find this type of egregious action insulting.

Funny you mention the not speaking Spanish part. I have worked with a guy for over 10 years, who also just so happens to live a couple of miles away, who is 3rd generation American. I remember when he started at work, about 3 weeks after I did. I walked into control lab to introduce him to some folks, three of which who are Mexicans. One fo the guys said something to him in Spanish and Edward replied, "Dude, speak English, I don't speak or understand Spanish".

His Grandparents very much beleived if they were going to be Americans, English was the language their family would speak.

If any of you know an older Hispanic male very well you can imagine how getting called "Dude" by a 22 year old kid went over:lol:

My father grew up in North Dakota and was chastised by the 1st grade teacher to only speak English which he knew how to do, but at home they normally spoke German and he often reverted back to that. At this point in his life he cannot understand German even though he was raised on it.

My point being in a single generation you can change your heritage, and btw my father doesn't have the slightest hint of a German accent, seriously you could not tell it from any normal person on the street.

Another interesting point is my grandfather was born in South Dakota and though his life they mostly spoke German (great grandfather was from Da Mutherland)

Probably about as well as the day my 20 year old daughters boyfriend called me "Bro". Which was preceeded by "relax". He informed me that he, my daughter and my 17 year old niece who was visiting from California "had their own thing goin' on and it was none of my business..." Turned out he was nearly dead wrong about that. ::redsnipe::

The poor misguided bearded gentleman with a weapon fetish is obviously a deranged patriot and is now on the governments terrorist watch list no doubt. (If there were more of us like him, this wouldn't even be "news". Good for him, and us.)
