    I agree, the term is racist and the time for it's common usage has long passed. The rare usage now should be looked at in context. As I stated before, shakey ground for a politician to whom even the most innocent of speech can be a millstone around the neck later on.

    Oh, gotcha. Wasn't wrong though. Take a look at the assertion I was rebutting. It was that the dems left their party to goto the GOP.

    If the phrase "Kiss their ass a little" includes stealing from others and giving to them, then it's pretty common knowledge 'gha.

    When are we going to do something about that avatar?

    there are no white, black, asian or native American wetbacks
    which means that expression is reserved but for one race/ethnicity
    which then means you were wrong

    No, but you should pay attention to the context of the discussion.

    Because they don't come here illegally via water. So no, I wasn't wrong.
