Yesterday’s podcast started with a little delay since I had no internet connection (my modem got soaked because the basement flooded) and my guest, Siggy of Sigmund Carl and Alfred had never done a podcast on Blog Talk Radio. Luckily Siggy saved the day and was able to record the podcast.
Siggy opened the conversation describing how there are all kinds of immigrants: Old immigrants wanted to participate in economic barter “who felt a compact with this great nation”; and now there are also those who feel they are entitled, that society owes them something – as Siggy said, “they don’t say I want to participate, they don’t say I want to contribute, they say, I want”.
We discussed why outside the USA there is no such thing as “Hispanic”, how much of the anti-immigration sentiment is predicated on bias, how there are three important issues on the immigration problem, and other subjects.
For another comment on immigrants and the USA, read Miliescu’s comment.
Go listen to the archived podcast – you’ll enjoy it as much as I.
(One error I made during the podcast: the scholarship program sponsored by Los Tigres del Norte is not only for students of Mexican origin.)
