Just a thought

But Latinos — immigrants and those born in this country — are driving the population growth. They accounted for almost half the increase last year, more than any other ethnic or racial group. White non-Hispanics, who make up about two-thirds of the population, accounted for less than one-fifth of the increase.

So I read this in a story about the 300 million American being on target to be born this fall and realized that maybe this is why the Republicans and the Senate are so hot and heavy to stem the tide.   If the tide isn’t stemmed, there will come a time when they will not run the country.

I think I’ve been watching too much Oliver Stone.

    That’s a very good thought because I’ve read that in the next 10 years or so, Latinos are on track to be the majority in this country, so I can understand if our “leaders” are a bit paranoid.

    (I’m trying my damnest to resist saying something about how we’re beyond talking about immigration issues)

    (Crap, my iPod just did that freaky “Oh, you’re communicating with Spencer? Let me play some Michael Penn. How about ‘On Automatic’ from the live Boston recordings?” thing again.)
