Shit, we might as well pass a bill funding the KKK and Al Qaeda! La Raza is a racist organization who believes that the U.S. stole California, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas from them, and they are working to reconquer them through legal and illegal immigration.

Thomas Jefferson once said, To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. This tops the list of things I abhor and I don't want one dime of my tax dollars going to this organization!

Got some folks to write their Reps. Hopefully we can get a lot more. I think I emailed you what I wrote.

Very glad you emailed me this. I don't have time to blog every day but I check my email pretty often.
