"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Nothing Mexican Day

Here's a thought:

Cross posted from The Amboy Times

Ok, enough is enough. Not only do illegal immigrants demand free government services, the institution of Spanish language, the right to clog our streets with protesters donning Mexican flags,accusing us of being racist for wanting to controls our own borders, and condescendingly informing us that all of southwestern America is actually Atzlan, Mexico, now they are boycotting US goods with Nothing Gringo Day. As if the boycott itself wasn't audaciously insulting enough, the pejorative gringo is used in the title.

I recommend a less confrontational title, perhaps "Bite The Hand That Feeds You Day" or how about boycotting all the free medical care, schools, and other government services? They could call it "No Payroll Taxation Means No Government benefits Day", hmm a bit wordy that one. So what can a poor gringo do?

How about "Nothing Mexican Day"?

After all, turn about is fair play. The concept is simple, just don't buy anything Mexican. Refuse to purchase any products "Hencho en Mexico". This could have a severe effect on the flimsy Mexican economy that benefits greatly by being next door neighbors to the largest consumer spender in the world. With Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) coming just 4 days after "Nothing Gringo Day", the effects would be felt almost immediately. Cinco de Mayo is the biggest day of the year for Mexican breweries like Corona, Dos Exes and Modelo. If you were planning a trip south of the border, go to Canada instead, or better yet, visit a part a this great nation you haven't seen yet. You can get a change of scenery without waiving the Bill of Rights at the border.

Our leaders in government may be spineless, but we still have control over our own spending, and we can send a message to illegals and the Mexican government that we're not going to take this lying down. There is no reason why this won't work, and we can do it (si se pueda) without protesting, breaking laws, race-baiting or even calling names.
