    This is not about the race card. This is where the misconception happens. This has nothing to do with defending my bretheren or letting people have a free ride.

    Learning the language of the land is a requirement for many reasons. One, it is a means of survival and a tool to move forward. Two, it is an advantage to become bilingual. Dowadudda makes a point. Just because someone doesn't see the big picture of the issue we are labeled racist. Racism is a form of ignorance.

    However, the government has made it difficult to allow immigrants into this country. After 9/11, it became worse. There has always been a problem with illegal immigrants for years now, especially coming from the Mexican border. But what you fail to see, condenseddave, is these immigrants are no different than you and I. They want a better life and want to work as hard as you and I. So you label them as criminals for crossing the borders illegally. But ask why? They want a better life too. I'm not condoning crimes but what else is an immigrant to do to come here?

    BTW condenseddave, try reading about Che and what his vision was for Latin America. Watch the movie "The Motorcycle Diaries" and get back to me. Down there is a much bigger gap of the haves and the have-nots. You don't know this but he and Fidel has a fallout in Cuba during the early years. So don't talk to me about how smokescreen. Why don't you talk to Mr. 9/11-commission smokescreen guy who we call the president.

    I was recently in Cuba and believe me, Che is more popular there then ever. There is no doubt that Che was Castro's right hand man. One government building has a several stories high likeness of Che across the front of it with your sig line written across it, so don't try to come off with the lie that Castro and Che were not like minded. Actually, Che was a bit more radical then Castro. It was Che who decided to leave Cuba.

    I never said Che and Castro were not like minded. Che left Cuba because they had difference in the country's direction, several years after the revolution. However, Che was more popular and more admired by the people, which Castro felt was a threat to his leadership.

    Che is admired by many, not because of his socialist ideals but for what he stood for. It is sad his image is being stereotyped as a communist revolutionary.

    His legacy for the revolution has stood the test of time.

    The cultural sovereignty of this nation has been compromised and is rapidly detriorating due in large part to the illegal immigrant. It is so rampant that music, advertising, and almost every other form of media todays society is exposed to, especially youth oriented media has been to some degree focused on the illegal migrant demographic. This dilution of American culture and heritage in todays media will in the course of a few generations insure the loss of the idea of being American as we have known it to be.

    You are correct, and the language of the land is English.

    If you want to learn ten languages, be my guest, but don't insist that the rest of the nation learn a foreign language to accomodate illegal immigrants.

    Obey the law, like immigrants of past generations had to do.

    It's illegal to hire illegal aliens. Therefore, they cannot legally work here. They want a better life, but aren't willing to comply ith the laws of the land, so they resort to criminal activity as the only way to survive.

    All because they aren't willing to go through the bother of becoming legal.

    Yeah, they're different than I. BIG TIME.

    There is a large difference. My ancestors went through the process of immigration. So, yes, they are quite different.

    RoBoTeq...how did u get into Cuba? Did you had to go to one of those gateway nations to get there? I have been wanting to go for a long time. When I saw the documentary on the Buena Vista Social Club, I couldn't help but appreciate the natural beauty Cuba has to offer.

    Condenseddave, I guess anything that is "un-American" you classify as a terrorist. Stop watching right-wing Fox News and that arrogant POS shep.

    Tell me all the "details" of immigration. They have complicated immigration laws so much you keep them away from this country. Criminal activity? So trying to get a better life is a crime? You are full of ****!

    Do you know why immigrants come here? To do all the menial jobs you don't want to do. I wish one day these legal immigrants take your job!

    Typical right-wing bastard!

    You really can't carry on an intelligent conversation, can you?

    What a pity. You really did, in the beginning, appear to have a mediocre command of the English language. That impression was overly generous on my part.

    Sounds like attempted mind-control (on an EXTRAORDINARILY low level) in the grand tradition of communism and socialism.

    Don't let anyone have the right to have differing viewpoints! Censor the media!

    "Iontelligent"????

    I guess I know who I am dealing with.

    You see, I went to school to learn the language and to spell properly.

    You are not doing me any favors. I was just trying to get you to understand the point I was trying to make. I guess I shouldn't have these "iontelligent" conversations with you.

    You'd love it there. Really. You'd fit right in.

    I'll buy the ticket. One way.

    You're trying to be slick and corrected your spelling. You make me laugh.

    You're delusional, I believe.

    I heard that your kind did a lot of drugs.
