    scot – brazillians aren’t “real americans” (your first link in your email response). they are clearly too dark.

    i’m sorry, that was rude. what i meant to say is, everyone knows brazillians are filthy.

    You did NOT just say that??!!!

    Yow.

    But you’re right that the story linked to above is re: a Brazilian concert. But we’ve all seen the post-concert garbage piles here at home.

    Hrm… I used to have a comment preview. Didn’t think anyone was using it so decluttered a while ago. I’ll dig up a new one sometime soon.

    Living here in the heart of Neo-Con Land (D/FW), one is struck by the schizophrenic relationship conservatives have with immigrants, illegal or otherwise.

    We get nonsense propaganda like Scot pointed out, and yet this place would grind to a fsck-ing halt w/o immigrant labor. Not wanting to stereotype job-roles, but the spoiled Republicans around here would be the first to howl if they couldn’t get their yard landscaped, their construction projects completed, or if their favorite restaurant shutdown due to lack of kitchen & dining room staff.

    What do these folks think ? That invisible faeries do the real work that keeps the world going while they’re asleep ?

    Word, David. In California, the Mexican community actually went on strike one day to make that very point. There’s a movie about it: Day Without a Mexican that chronicles the CA shut-down.
