If that isn't the exact definition of the Chicano version of the National Anthem I'd like to hear about it. Considering it's history, I'd love to see the Mexican national anthem (assuming they have one) translated into French. Despite the platitudes being mouthed by the "author", Adam Kidron, it is a slap in the face of every American who has any love for our country.
The state government of California passed a resolution today endorsing the May Day fiasco that's designed to bring its cities and economy to a halt. Isn't that special? Of course, they said they want the kids to stay in school and join the protest afterwards, but if you give a kid - any kid - a semi-legitimate reason to skip school, even I can figure out what will happen.
In the meantime, Vincente Fox is going to sign into law a bill that will legalize marijuana, heroin, cocaine and ecstasy. I can see Amsterdam protesting this one - and Vinnie Fox might find his borders heading South are porous. I can imagine the number of Gringos who are going to be changing their vacation plans.
