Midterm elections were a referendum about Obama; there is no question about that. Despite the fact that economy is doing well and unemployment numbers are low (compared with Bush periods). Wall Street stocks at record high and a health system that is affordable and works, Obama is still the BLACK guy in the WHITE House, and that my friends, is the biggest insult to the White American Christian people and the founding fathers. He has been accused of been Muslim, Terrorist, Socialist, Communist (Most Americans do not even know the difference between Socialism and Communism), Christian Hater, Racist, etc. All of those just labels hiding behind Christian bigotry. At the end, he is just a BLACK person with MUSLIN name in the WHITE House. Continue reading
A new battle ground has appeared in the fight against illegal migration. The heartland is the new field chosen by the “White Knight Templar” Kris Kobach and his personal crusade against this phenomenon. A very smart moved for his cause after testing the grounds in Arizona. This time he might succeed knowingly that Kansas resides on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, which according to Dion Lefler from the Wichita Post, “has a long history of precedents upholding the principles that underline HB 2372;” while Arizona sits on the Ninth. But, are the State of Kansas and Kansans residents ready to fight the battle the new GOP legislature is putting on their shoulders? What could be the consequences and what are possible reasonable solutions? Why the GOP doesn’t use their Continue reading
The land of freedom and opportunity is turning into a dead end for Hispanic students who graduate high school, but lack a pathway to continue for a higher education. I’m mentioning Hispanic as this race is the only that fits the “illegal” profile already created by unscrupulous politicians and ignorant civilians within the American society, but this post can reach ANY race.

This phenomenon has been exploited by politicians (who truly lack of arguments to govern) to their own favor. The more gruesome and inhumane anti-immigrant proposals they throw, the better promotion and exposure to media they will receive, using this only fact to measure their political carriers.

Hans Magnus Enzenberg, a German author, poet, translator, and editor illustrates on his essay “The Great Migration” how natives react to migratory waves using a train paradox.
Two passengers in a train compartment … Have settled comfortably, have grabbed tables, hangers, and racks, and have spread news papers, coats and bags on empty seats. Shortly after, the door is opened and two new passengers enter the same compartment. The first two do not welcome them. They show clear signs of disgust before deciding to collect their things, share rack space, and retreat to their seats. Even without knowing each other at all, the two passengers show a surprising initial mutual solidarity; they act as a group set against the newcomers, who are invading their territory. They will consider any new passenger they see an intruder. A concept that defies all rational explanation, and that, however, is deeply rooted. Yet, the newcomers are just being tolerated. First two will get used to them, still stigmatized, but yet in a lesser degree… Continue reading
