They've blown their collective tops at the mere thought of Cesar Chavez being honored by the navy. They've complained that people look towards Cesar Chavez for inspiration. However, Chez is suggesting, with a straight face, that "we" look towards the contributions of latinos.

    The tactic is to stall, and never get anything done. It's about as see through as these things come.

    Eco? Him and I agree on what you're doing and I've already exposed your position with you know... reality. That reality being that your suggestion is a stall tactic meant to never get anything done. Whereas mine calls for immediate action based on historical order and public acceptance. Cesar Chavez? Lol. Don't make me laugh. The right wing can barely stomach MLK and we're moving on to a guy that the right hates? Your stall tactic couldn't be more obvious.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Less waste too. Although dollars are quite tough, they will certainly never last as long as metal, and pennies are just something to wind up in your couch cushion these days.
    Aussies have had a $1 and $2 coins for as long as i can remember. They're great.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Actually, no, that's the position you've given me despite all my posts as evidence to the contrary.

    Again, historical order? Cool So you're down with Crazy Horse, Geronimo, and Sitting Bull going first, right?

    You keep using the term right wing, like you really mean something else, I wonder what "right wing" is code for? Hmm?

    (Lesson: the last sentence is an insinuation not the other crap you've been falsely accusing me of. Learn it well and never make that mistake with me again. End of Lesson.)
