How are they suffering?
Free medical, free schools, when you dial a business you can choose english or spanish (why not Mandarin or another language?), freebies in general (through all the give to the poor organizations). They have more justice, dignity and prosperity than they had in their homeland.
Racist deportation? I guess they had to get the word "racist" in there somehow.
Sheriff Joe Arbaio and Arizona has it right. Mountain View has it dreadfully wrong.
Who is this guy Joseph Rojas, why is he coming here to cause trouble? "Joseph Rojas, a San Jose occupy member and candidate for State Assembly" What kind of title is this? A meaningless title and I am surprised he didn't add "community organizer". He should stick to bringing people to Christ instead of this nonsense.
Don't get me started on Anchor Babies.
Go ahead, march down the street, shout out your tired message and guess what, nobody cares. The only thing I like about this whole exhibition is the freedom of assembly and speech, this is the greatest country ever!
I really hate this St. Joseph's Church. Yes "hate". Yes, I am a "hater", thank god it is still legal to hate.
Now I'll sit back and wait five minutes to be called a racist. "Racist" has not meaning anymore because it is so over used.

The march was very inspiring yesterday. Hearing everyone connect the dots between the big banks, the foreclosure crisis, for-profit detention centers, payday lenders, etc. and the need to move money into credit unions was amazing.
It was nice to see the two candidates, Sally Lieber (State Senate sallylieber.org) and Joseph Rosas (State Assembly jrosas4ad24.squarespace.com) not only speak at the rally, but do the entire march as well. Most impressive was Rosas' bilingual speech. It's a shame the incumbant, Rich Gordon a) didn't bother to come b) sent such a bad speaker in his stead. Perhaps he was busy formulating another non-opinion on Saltworks.
