Ask a Mexican on Clamdigger Pants and Patriotic Inconsistencies

I see a lot of vatos around wearing the clamdigger pants with the knee-high white socks and white sneakers. Though this is nothing new, I've noticed recently that the shoes and socks are the whitest white I've ever seen. If I wear white sneakers and socks, they get dirty pretty quickly, even if I stay on the sidewalk. So . . . what's the secret? Spray paint? Slaving over a washboard with homemade lye soap so Junior Jr. can look like all the other homies? Some of that Mexican witch doctor magic? Zote? Not having a job and moving as little as possible, so as not to soil said garments? Whatever the secret is, I'm sure Procter & Gamble would pay big bucks for it!
No Zapato Blanco

Primeramente, it ain't just the cholos looking spic 'n' span, it's all Mexican men when not in work mode. Whether the wab with his 1000X Stetson, a hipster and his immaculate Chucks, some vendido who prefers Burberry suits, or a soccer fan who irons his Chivas jersey even though he knows it'll be covered with sweat and beer after the game, hombres pay special attention to how they look — part vanity, por supuesto, but also old-fashioned values that remember a well-kempt man is usually well-kempt in everything else. Back to the cholos, I'm sure you also know hoods of all rayas pay attention to sartorial manners, whether Darth Vader, Al Capone's fedoras, or the Brownshirts. That's a byproduct of bling — trying to show the world how well your criminal life treats you — and good ol' Freudian overcompensation for their sorry lot in life. For cholos, then, it's a mix of the Mexican and the criminal that keeps him looking so unblemished — oh, and the woman in his life, whether a saintly mother or some Sharpie-eyebrow-wearing ruca.

I'm so sick of hearing this "they want a better life" boohoo bullshit! If that's true, why do they demand that the Mexican flag be flown in the US of A? Why do they paint Nazi signs on the U.S. flag? Shit on it? Desecrate it? Why do they show such contempt for American citizens instead of trying to assimilate and learn the language and act properly? I'm sure that some do, but most who I have seen hold the very country that they claim to want to live in so much in total contempt and make no attempts to hide it. How is someone a penjedo for disliking illegals in this country? Seems as though you are the pendejo of the 100,000th degree.
Not a Pendejo

Actually, I'm at a level of pendejo so high that the collective brains of MIT and Cal Tech can't comprehend it yet. But you dismantle your own argument by admitting that there are Mexicans who do assimilate and "act properly," whatever chingada that means — but it's not some, it's all. Do you need to know English to be an American? Nope. Only wave the American flag? Nope. Be a citizen? Not even close. I know illegals who are more American than your pendejo ass, and I know gabachos who are bigger leeches on this country than a Mexican mom on the government queso. How is someone a penjedo for disliking illegals in this country? Easy: for the lack of logic.

Good Mexican of the week! We've plugged the Mexican-American Studies program offered by the Tucson Unified School District before in this columna, but we can't do it enough. And as the academic year begins anew, we commend this endeavor anew. You know why Know-Nothings hate this program, banda, and want to eliminate it? Because it actually helps students do better in school — and the last thing the old guard in this country needs is a bunch of educated cabrones ready to raise desmadre on America by keeping the good and dismantling the pendejo.

Sherrif Joe is one of a few law enforcement individuals who understands a simple fact: "illegal immigrant" = an individual who is not in the United States legally. Being that the "illegal immigrant" has broken our (and Barrack Hussien Obwama's) Federal Immigration Laws and entered the United States through illegal means, he / she is subject to a crime and as such, he / she is subject to deportation. Is that difficult to understand?

You ask: "... why do they demand that the Mexican flag be flown in the US of A?" Good question, but then why do some US Citizens insist on flying the Confederate flag? Did they not learn in their US education classes that the South lost ... many, many years ago? Why do Canadians or other winter visitors unfurl "their" flags in the USA? Let's pass a law that only the US or State flags be flown in the appropriate state, no? Convict "all" who want to flaunt "their" flag in the wrong State. While we are at it, don't let anyone display those cute seasonal banners (e.g., Valentine, Easter, St. Patricks, etc.) ~ You ask: "Why do they paint Nazi signs on the U.S. flag?" (cough) Glad you mention this but I wonder where you live and how you know that it is a Mexican doing this act. I want to know why the USA allows all hate groups (i.e., White Supremacists, Aryan Nation, Militia, etc.) to exist. These people don't like or respect this country and yet we have politicians who gladly take their money for votes. If politicians take their money, why don't they publicly proclaim this fact? I "know" why these hate groups are allowed to flourish and exist in our country, but it makes no sense. It is okay for these hate groups or followers (i.e., McVeigh) to intimidate or kill innocent US Citizens and let them skate and no one questions their loyalty to their birth country ... THE U.S. of A!!?? Someone out there explain to me how Neo-Nazis can hobnob with our politicians and police ... did we not go to war fight the Nazis?! Educate yourselves on how these groups are growing and disrespecting our country ... and they are growing b/c too many of you are worried so much about Mexicans who don't have swastikas in their vocabulary or art. ~ You ask: "Why do they show such contempt for American citizens instead of trying to assimilate and learn the language and act properly?" Wish you could walk with me b/c I find that Mexicans are more respectful than Americans. They still value manners. What I see is Americans are too quick to judge "brown skinned" people in this frenzied environment our politicians are too eager to perpetuate. I speak perfect English as did my father ~ oh, we were all born in the US (with ancestors here in the SW who go back prior to the Mayflower group) ~ and yet we both were spoken to in broken Spanish and staggered, slow English even though we spoke English from the beginning. Our father served in the Pacific with pride and worked hard for the copper mines and he did not deserve to be (constantly) disrespected by Americans who were so full of fear and anger to really hear, see, or know him as a citizen of this country. ... and yet, my father and our family are more patriotic than most other US citizens because we work to make this country better and seek the truth. Yes, there are disrespectful Mexicans (legal or not) but I witness more contempt from Americans who don't take advantage of their education, who don't know how to write or speak English properly, who won't take on any job to feed their family, and who take no pride in being born in this country nor do they know or want to know what it means to work with an American ethic. ~ Be more enraged with the general malaise that is sweeping our country especially from those politicians (all sides) who are more concerned about their own pockets and not Americans who are losing their jobs and their homes. THE MEXICANS ARE NOT CAUSING ALL THE PROBLEMS OF THIS COUNTRY!!

If the 12,000,000 plus illegal immigrants had a political leaning towards the conservative republicans would the pro illegal immigrants group still help with amnesty? I don't think so.

You also dismantle your argument by saying that they don't have to learn English or fly the American flag or be a citizen what a pendejo thing to say.Why come here and not learn the language, why come here and wave some other flag and why not become a citizen? Go to Guatemala or Honduras and fly yer flag there and see what happens.Oh wait you doosh bags don't need to do any of those things cuz the minute anybody says something to the contrary to mexicans they are racists. wahhh wahhhh wahhh. Why call the guy a pendejo ass for sticking up for our way of life? You and yer illegal "I know illegals who are more American than your pendejo ass" go back home, you old grandmama pendejo. Smelly one at that!!!Kind of a dumb thing to say really, what does yer illegal buddy do that's so "American"?Later doosh.

STFU idiot liar! I have been assaulted while very pregnant in Southwest Supermarket by your well-mannered refuse to speak English people who hate all outside their color and are incensed that I married a fine handsome primo Mexican man who had to come to my rescue from these ridiculous bitches. I have been raped by your oh so well- mannered haters and much more. True that not all contemporary national problems are caused by our illegal population - rather they are being used as useful idiots by the wealthy elite and if we fall for the promised Reconquista war and kill each other off, the elite, who can have an economic recovery without us, will be all the happier for it. There are plenty of Mexican descent US citizens, whose first language was Spanish who can see the illegal alien threat for what it is and do not appreciate TRAITORS SUPPORTING HATERS.

You ever notice that the people who post and claim to be "Proud Americans" or "Patriots" have absolutely no clue about the principles on which this country was founded.
