Bot, it will take more than pretty, shiny rocks to get my vote. Your comment is insulting and I hope that it was meant in jest.

As far as the Catholic comment is concerned, the fastest growing religious group in Central and Latin America are the Pentecostal Christians. Even Mormonism (is that a word) is growing at faster rates in Central and South America than Catholicism.

Their numbers are still small, compared to those who claim to be Catholics, but they are growing at a very fast rate neverthless. Also, Pentacostal Hispanics tend to be more committed to their religious beliefs than Catholic Hispanics are, and are far more conservative.

Old line Hispanics (mainly Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans) tend to be lean more towards the Dems. They still remember all that stuff from the 60's.

Newer arrivals, OTOH, have not fallen into the Dem's fold--not yet anyway. Hence the Reps efforts to recruit them.

From my vantage POV, I think that both Dems and Reps have no clue about what is going on in the Hispanic community. But then again, American politicians have generally blundered in Central and South America--sometimes with disastrous consequences to America's own best self interest.

Hispanics are not a monolithic group and politicians, and others, who view them as a homogenous group, do so at great peril.

How can they? Virtually none of them speak the LANGUAGE.....not a surprise then that L.A. elected a latino mayor.

Incidentally, illegal immigrants that had children in America as recently as 1988 will now be represented in the polls. The silent revolution has begun.

I think they call it Reconquista.

It is funny but I've heard Mayor Villaraigosa speak Spanish and it is not all that good.

I don't think that politicians need to actually speak Spanish, they just need to understand how the different Hispanic groups are different from each other. Whoever "wins" the majority of the Hispanic vote will be sitting in the driver's seat for a long time.

I will be happy to give you a little coaching, but I can see we will have to take things v e r y s l o w l y so as not to overwhelm you.

Do you see where you went wrong here?:-

"Since you think your so good at it, why don't you break down and show me * to do it"

I think you were trying to say 'you are' which is abbreviated to 'you're'

When you have mastered this, we can move on. :-)

*BTW-You might want to add a 'how' into that sentence.

Metaphor
1.a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.”
2.something used, or regarded as being used, to represent something else; emblem; symbol.

This is geting painfull.
