Border: Bush must lead, reject right-wing hate

TUCSON -- Student walkout protests by thousands this week for immigration reform were important and inspiring 13 years after the passing of Cesar Chavez.

Fair and humane immigration reform is a critical issue now for the southwest and our nation. Bush could finally step in, show some leadership, and do something decent. But will he? If Reagan gave legal residency to millions in the 80s, surely Bush can too? Maybe, if he has the balls.

The minutemen jokers claim to be back along the border. The few of them will be posing for overhyping media droids, overestimating their numbers and influence as they drive their ATVs around with hunting guns spewing hate and racism.

Better hope the Mothership Militia doesn't see you out on the borderlands, littlemen. You will be confronted and run off like the scared honkies you surely are. Go back home to Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, racist assholes.

I've been away this week on personal priorities, and hope to cover more issues next week.

the minutemen racist vigilantes are eager to vociferously inflate their numbers indeed... the scary fact is that although they are few, their hyper-nationalistic ideology denies our common humanity and embraces hate, violence, and a self-righteousness that has historically characterized tragedy and atrocity. I will not be as loose with the word "terrorism" as we have seen this administration and its lockstep 'congregation' be (i.e. the politically expedient labeling of environmental and peace activists, etc.), but I would like to suggest we ponder the term and it implications in relation to some of these "minutemen" considering the means they are willing to employ to acquire their racist end. I have walked the trails and witnessed the vandalized remains of water-tanks set out to prevent the dehydration of women and children as they wander aimlessly through one of the most dangerous desert corridors of this land. All to escape the very real inequities of being born on the wrong side of a not-so-real line which the politicians 'de facto' tell us is the difference between being human or being something else...

Keep Hope Alive

Why is it that the Minutewimps always reduce their numbers on their "border patrol" when the summer temps start to kick in? This does not really flatter the conservative's cause that much. If they even could send all of these folks back, they could NEVER handle all of the hard work that would need to be done. Conservatives are facing a Darwinian-dead-end...
