  •  I grew up in a farmworker town in the (6+ / 0-)

    Central Valley.  I don't think anyone who lived there could possibly say that our Latino neighbors were lazy.  They work their asses off for very little money and are wonderfully family focused.  He preferentially hired Mexicans as employees and we grew up making tamales with our adopted abuelas, cleaning houses side by side with our substitute moms and playing with our "primas".

    My dad, the tea partier, instilled us with this view of the Latino community we lived in.

    Now after years of Fox brainwashing, he's starting to spout the lazy meme.  It's hard to reconcile these two sides of my dad, as they seem mutually exclusive.

    20 innocent children were slaughtered. The gun lobby and NRA bear responsibility and it is time to fight back!
