    I know you probably weren't intending it but you just made a very poignant observation about the kind of culture that creates the economic distress that leads illegals to come here.

    If they manned those factories with adults and paid a livable wage rather than grinding the kids into the ground for pennies and sent the kids to school instead of using them as next-best-thing-to-slave-labor, what do you think that would do for their economy?

    You are right...I absolutely did NOT intend to make a salient point...so...thanks for throwing THAT in my face... ;-)

    Now...as to YOUR point...personally I COMPLETELY agree. I think if we were to negotiate with the Mexican government, to invest the money that we would use hunting down illegal immigrants and instead invest in their education and industrial base it would have the same effect...high wages, more jobs, we would have a better economic trade partner, there wouldnt be the NEED for the illegal immigration problem...etc.

    Of course...I think it wouldnt be a BAD idea if we did the same thing in America...reduce federal spending, eliminate foreign aid, encourage American industry to work with the unions to create a reasonable wage, provide incentives to bring jobs BACK to America...what a concept...

    This is an ACTUAL foxnews poll... :

    Should the display of an American flag be banned, even if a school administrator feels that display could lead to fights?

    • No. This is a lame decision. Teach the kids what the flag means, instead of banning it.
    • Yes. The safety of students comes first.
    • Not sure, but of all things to ban, the American flag would seem the least 'incendiary.'
    • Other (post a comment)

    I feel about other people and the flag the same way Tancredo does, and he has one of my favorite quotes pertaining to it.

    This isn't about the flag shirts (didn't Kid Rock get dissed for wearing one to a Super-bowl game?)

    The flag boys were wanting to cause a disruption. Principals don't like disruptions. I would have sent them home to change and told them to be back in school in one hour.

    You've got to discipline the juveniles.

    And BTW, speaking of, Cinco De Mayo really... is an insult to Mexico. They're PROUD they kicked France's ass once? Really, that's worthy of a holiday?? We won WWII and didn't bother to make it a Holiday.


    And to stay completely on topic, I hope those kids parents sue the school for violating their kids 1st amendment rights.
    To be fair Mexico didn't actually win the war, they just won the battle. And yeah, I always hated cinco de mayo because almost no Mexicans celebrate it in Mexico, but Mexicans here do. WTH?! Why do people who didn't celebrate it in mexico be celebrating here in a different nation? If you want to celebrate cinco de mayo it would make sense for the Mexicans living in Mexico to but not here in the states.
