We are a lazy nation

By now most of you know my feelings concerning illegal aliens in our country. If you filled out the paperwork and came here legally, we welcome you with open arms. If you snuck across our border and we have no idea what crimes you've commited, the state of your health, etc. then stay the hell away.

That said, I must admit that the shear number of protesters on Monday coupled by their passion for something they believe in made me proud of them and sad that Americans can't do the same. We didn't get that worked up over much more important issues such as invading Iraq and the numerous missteps and outright illegal acts perpeptrated by the Bush administration on a seemingly daily basis.

I envy the Mexican spirit and wish the American spirit was nearly as passionate about issues that we claim are important to us.
