Si se puede

In spanish it means: Yes, we can. And we did today with crowds estimated by the Bakersfield PD at between 7-10,000 strong marched today from Jastro park.That is also the park where we read the names last summer of the 2,000 soldiers killed Iraq. Today was also the birthday of Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the UFW, the United Farm Workers who was in attendance. It wasn't just people of Hispanic descent, it was all races, all ages, all walks of life.

it seems very few americans are worried about exported conservatism. good luck with your bible-thumping, homophobic, sexist and racist immigrants.

I don't live next door to whom sophie? I live surrounded by all types of people...except the rich haughty types. You don't find too many of them here.
