Sure enough, Texas is talking secession again. It's how you know there's a Democrat in the White House.

Any updates on Westernesse? Get anywhere beyond a cute li'l flag?

Jill Biden apologizes for saying Latinos 'unique' as tacos

WASHINGTON — Jill Biden apologized Tuesday for saying Latinos are “as unique” as San Antonio breakfast tacos during a speech to the nation’s largest Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization.


“The first lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community,” tweeted Jill Biden’s spokesperson, Michael LaRosa.

The first lady flew to San Antonio on Monday to address the annual conference of UnidosUS, a Latino civil rights and advocacy group formerly known as the National Council of La Raza.

But her attempt to compliment Latino diversity didn’t go over very well when she said that the community is “as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio.”

She also badly mispronounced “bodegas,” small stores in urban areas typically specializing in Hispanic groceries.

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists and others registered their offense on social media, with the journalists’ organization tweeting that, “We are not tacos.”

“Using breakfast tacos to try to demonstrate the uniqueness of Latinos in San Antonio demonstrates a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region,” NAHJ said.

The association said the first lady and her speechwriters should “take the time in the future to better understand the complexities of our people and communities.”

Last week, President Joe Biden awarded the former longtime leader of UnidosUS, Raul Yzaguirre, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest honor for a civilian.

Better be careful what you say boomster. You crossing the border all the time and all. Better watch for black helicopters.

Didn’t say I was going to do the deed, I said he needs to be killed.

…and as for most of the border guards, they would agree. 🖕🏽

Further they can’t deny me entry to the US, Canada or even Mexico..

The only black helicopter I ever “didn’t see” was at Oceanside, California.. could hear it.. but couldn’t see it .. hovering off the coastline
