    Maybe I'm missing something here.
    I have seen many Libs on this site
    gleeful that the Hispanic population
    will outnumber the White folks in America.
    They go on to say that the GOP is missing out
    on all those future votes.

    Now these same Libs are going to torch
    my buddy Pat.

    I'm here for you Pat.
    Booo on MSNBC.

    I don't know if I've ever seen anyone Gleeful that the Hispanic population is going to exceed the white population. I have seen, however a whole lot of "I don't care" from the left. Which is the appropriate emotion.

    We are not a "white" society...get used to it. We are very much that "melting pot" that our Founding Fathers envisioned. If some of you can't handle that, then you are in for a miserable, bitter rest of your days....MAY YOU LIVE FOREVER!

    Ps... and yes...I'm white.

    I've expressed glee that the average American will have less of a need for tanning booths in 100 years. But.....only because the thought of it sends the insecure losers into fits.

    .

    I'm only surprised he lasted as long as he did on MSNBC. If they'd just get rid of Joe in the morning, they'd have the ideological purity they're obviously going for. Why ideological purity is so important, I don't know.

    Personally, I'm a First Amendment purist. I want to hear what people have to say, even if (gasp) I don't agree with them. If their positions are stated effectively, it might even (double gasp) affect my opinion on something. I'm not afraid of that, and I wonder why so many are.

    But just as much as that, I want to know precisely who the whackos are, where they are, and what they're thinking. And that's the beauty of the First Amendment - it points the whackos out, loud and clear, right in the spotlight. Why are so many people afraid of that?

    The First Amendment isn't about speech you like. It's about speech you DON'T like.

    MSNBC liked Buchanan because he was a right winger who hated Bush consistantly, probalby going back to when Daddy Bush disrepsected him in the Reagan years. As in, "Why do we keep this crazy Nazi around the office?"

    The problem with Buchanan is that he sees race as something that is actually meaningful. Sorry, I work on a team with two Asians (one of them married to a white guy) a black woman, and two white women. You know what, at the end of the day, we are all worried about the same things. It isn't like they are strange aliens who aren't all in the same boat.

    Now, I respect that fact that Pat was one of the few guys who saw the dangers of Free Trade when everyone else was drinking the koolaid. But he tinged his views with this rather nasty racism that discredited his valid points of view.
