16 February 2017. Be Careful What You Wish For Department…

____________________________________

The reason that so many Mexicans live in the American Southwest is that the region is really Northwest MEXICO. The USA stole the region as the result of a war of aggression that occurred after the Texas slavers staged a revolt in 1836 (the Mexicans were going to force them to liberate their slaves and the Texas racists didn’t want that at all). Mexico has never given up its claim to its ancient territory. Do think on that when you hear the demented “conservatives” rant on and on.

Be careful what you wish for… you may get it, and in its fullness. Have a care…

Read this. Let’s not be coy… this is denying birth certificates to children born in the USA… thus, the Texas Republicans are issuing a racist ukase against Mexican residents. The Republicans are afraid that as the Mexican population in the state increases, their power will erode… as Anglo businessmen and farmers treat their Mexican labourers like shit and pay them substandard wages. Payback IS a motherfucker. You see, as the state becomes increasingly Mexican, the Repugs fear a Mexican-Black-White Leftist coalition that’d sweep them out of power, possibly for good.

If you’ve sensed paranoia and dementia amongst Texas Anglo Repugs, you sensed correctly. What will they do? Shall they take up arms to violently keep the state in Anglo hands? Never forget the violent lie at the heart of Anglo Texas… there was no fight for freedom in 1836… it was a conscienceless revolt of slavers who refused to give up their human “property”. This lie has rotted at the heart of Texas since its forcible removal from Mexico by Anglo interlopers. Are all Texas Anglos like that? Thank God, no… I’m thinking of “Texas”, the well-known and courageous American volunteer in the DNR… he’s the epitome of what Anglo Texas can become.

It’s time for Texas to become politically what it truly is socially… a bilingual and multicultural polity mixing the best values of both the American and Mexican peoples. The time of Anglo hegemony is ending… God willing, its end won’t be overly bloody… the good people in Texas (both Mexican and Anglo) don’t deserve that. Shall it return to Mexico? That too, might happen… the Anglos might find the Mexicans more charitable masters than they ever were…

Christmas is one of the main Christian holidays. It’s an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus, observed as a religious and cultural tradition among billions of people across the world. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations, and a great number of non-Christian people celebrate it. According to the Gregorian calendar, the Roman Catholic Church and most Protestant churches celebrate Christmas on 25 December. Roman Emperor Theodosius II made the decision to celebrate Christmas on 25 December at the Third Ecumenical Council of Ephesus in 431.

Advent precedes Christmas, which starts four weeks before Christmas. This period is supposed to prepare the faithful the birth of Jesus. The festive customs associated in various countries with Christmas mix pre-Christian, Christian, and secular themes and origins. Popular customs of the holiday include gift giving, completing an Advent calendar, Christmas music and carolling, a special meal, and the display of various Christmas decorations, such as Christmas trees, Christmas lights, and garlands.

Christmas is associated with Santa Claus, also known as also known as St Nicholas and Father Christmas, a cultural figure with legendary, folkloric, and historic origins. In many Western cultures, folklore has it that Santa Claus brings presents to the homes of good children the night before Christmas. According to early Roman Christian traditions, three special liturgies are served on Christmas… a midnight Mass, a Mass at dawn, and a Mass during the day. In the Roman Catholic Church, Christmas celebrations last for eight days, from 25 December to 1 January, a period known as the Octave.

The North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) tracks Santa Claus when he leaves his official residence in the North Pole and flies around the world in his sleigh. NORAD has tracked Santa’s journey for more than 50 years. As gift-giving and many other Christmas customs involve heightened economic activity, the holiday became a key sales period for retailers and businesses all around the world. Groups and schools often perform Nativity plays and Christmas pageants during the holiday period. They depict the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. The tradition dates from the 10th-century Roman Empire.
