"Why are people stupid?"
Subject: Shop on May 1st
Illegal immigrants are planning a nationwide boycott of all goods and services on Monday, May 1st. They have marched in our streets and demanded rights as a reward for breaking our country's law. They hope to show that they have an impact on our economy, they hope to hurt American business, they hope to emotionally and economically blackmail us into submission.
So what can we do? All Americans who support LEGAL immigration but demand that all immigrants RESPECT our law are asked to act on May 1st. Wear RED or BLUE that day (They will be wearing white), and go SHOPPING.
If you have to grocery shop, make it May 1st. Need gas in your car? Fill it up May 1st. Buy Mother's Day gifts, buy summer clothes, buy that new car you've been thinking about, whatever you need, but BUY THAT DAY. American citizens outnumber illegal immigrants, and we MUST make ourselves heard. Wear red or blue to show your pride in your country, and your opposition to weak border and amnesty legislation. And GO SHOPPING!
Let's make May 1st a day to remember, and remind Congress that the illegal immigrants they cower before can't vote. We can. And we will. The First of May is Shopping Day!

That's it ladies, go shopping! You show those brown people who's boss in America-land! Don't let them take Our Dishwashing Jobs! I considered replying to point out several things, one of them being that this lady often sends Irish-American pride-themed forwards to her emailing list, and the gal who'd forwarded it to her had an Irish name, too. Do I even need to bring up that it was only two generations ago when my immigrant Irish grandparents used to see signs in NYC shop windows reading, "Irish Need Not Apply"? But I guess it was OK for Irish folks to come here as immigrants, since they were our ancestors and we are extra white.
And then, speaking of stupid, to find an illo for this blog just now, I went to look up on the Internets for one of those olde-tyme charicatures of the Irish from when they used to be considered an inferior race by some and I found an article by some jerkass so-called professor trying to debunk the "No Irish Need Apply" phenomenon. So who should I believe, a first-person account from a family member who it happened to, or some hater on the Internet? There's quite a healthy response to this article, although some of it, refuting the article, reveals even more ugliness...oh dear.
And theeeen, that page also links to articles about other "Liberal Myths" such as the Japanese relocation camps of World War II, and I guess they also finally take George Washington Carver down a few pegs. And then I thought it best to gather me lucky charms and remove myself from the K-hole of morons.
