Look lmc_0391, just because you have problems learning the language doesn't mean anybody/everybody else does. Living on the border all of of one's life, you tend to pick up on a phrase or two, even if you don't mean to. Then there's my first wife who is actually from Mexico. Then, after we were married, we lived in Juarez, which was not then, but is now the most dangerous city in the world. With all of this, you learn the culture, the patterns of thought and even the way the different classes of that country dress. I don't need somebody else to tell me they are illegal.
You've never spent any time with a group from another country, have you?
Then, there are those like gesserfan. These people are oblivious to MOST of the facts because they listen to half of one side of the story and use profanity and insults (not even clever ones) to force the opinion they've formulated with that limited knowledge. Let me guess; did you vote for Obama, gesserfan?
