13. How is it... "evidently getting pretty red up there"?
prove it. Meeting a bunch of biggots in one town in the UP does not take away from the fact that Democrats hold most UP offices, and that Democratic statewide and national candidates always have and still do fare better in the UP than in most of the rest of the state. Some of us may be backward, but we're not ALL stupid.

I'm actually too hurt by the fact that such a free thinking person such as yourself would make such a generalization about the entire UP based on a bad experience in Iron Mountain.

And you're right... Texas is the epicenter of racial harmony... that's why the minutemen and the Mexican immigrants get along so well. :P This is from their blog.

"HatchTX reports that the police around them now are completely ill-equipped to control the shoving Mexicans all around them.
The police have brought up a group of ambulances that they appear to intend to use as an emergency evacuation method for the White patriots that are cornered at the Dallas City Hall.
The police have escorted some of the White patriots who wanted to get away from the screaming Mexicans into the basement of Dallas City Hall to get away from the bottles being thrown at them by the Mexicans.
Mexicans and other non-White invaders by the hundreds of thousands appear to be set to take to the streets all over the U.S. with their demands for complete capitulation by White America to the Mexican invasion of our land."

I think I prefer "ho-made donuts".
