VOTE JULIET STIPECHE for HISD-8

Don’t let the Downtown business establishment sell out our kids’ future. VOTE JULIET STIPECHE for HISD-8.

OUT OF WORK HAS-BEEN ACTORS JOIN JOE

Lou the Hulk and Steven Seagal are out of acting work and they blame immigrants for it. At least, that’s the only reason I can think that they joined Joe Arapaio’s Mexican Hunting Club.

I wonder if this will spawn an anti-immigrant video similar to that recent anti-teacher’s union video. They can call it, “Waiting for Hulk.”

Charlie Gonzalez Will Lead CHC

Congressman Charlie Gonzalez will be the new Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and will be the face on key issues, especially comprehensive immigration reform.  Given the House’s GOP takeover, it may turn out to be one of the most thankless jobs, so I hope that he’s got some fight in him when the GOPers begin their attacks. Hell, we know their supporters don’t mind telling Latino members of Congress to “go back to Mexico,” I’m sure it can and will get worse.

11/20/10:  MEXICAN REVOLUTION DAY

100 years ago, the campesinos, among others, in Mexico fought back against Porfirio Diaz’s autocratic ways. These folks knew the enemy and fought for their interests and won. Perhaps we should take a lesson from this instead of bowing down to big business interests?

Have a great weekend, gente! AND VOTE in HISD-8…JULIET STIPECHE!
