Tea Partier Surprised That Louie C.K. is Mexican American! Latino Americans Are Everywhere!

Latino Americans Are Everywhere! Some (Teapartiers) are surprised when they have fair skin and blue eyes. But stand-up comic Louis C.K. (ginger hair and all) is Mexican-American. Louis C.K. was born in Washington D.C. to a Mexican father. The family moved to Mexico City, where he lived until the age of seven. His first language is Spanish, and he retains his Mexican citizenship (dual), according to Best Of Comedy Online. So, C.K. is actually Latino and has a Mexican passport.

On his last visit to The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien, the comedian poked fun of the racism surrounding immigration, referring to a comment a Tea Party woman once made against Mexicans. The woman was left speechless after she found out C.K. was Mexican. He talked about when he first came to the U.S. as "a young Mexican boy" and thought, "America es muy bonito!" ("America is very pretty!"), as he put it a child's voice.

There was a "secret" meeting or "conference" of the U. S. Supreme Court on past Friday, December 9 - It is possible that a Certiorari was granted to SB 1070 and that will be announced on Next Monday, December 12 at 10 AM - Why that would not be wise !

Nobody knows for sure if a Certiorari was granted on past Friday to the case "Arizona v. United States" that is "Papers Please" or SB 1070.

What is a Certiorari ??

A Certiorari is a writ from a higher court to a lower one requesting a transcript of the proceedings of a case for review.

The Supreme Court would require the lower court that is called "Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals" in San Francisco to produce the Injunction or Stay against certain provisions of SB 1070.

It would be wiser for the Supreme Court to wait for more jurisprudence produced in the different Circuits, because there are many suits, amicus briefs, oral discussions, etc in these courts relative to similar cases in Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and others.

These courts have highly respected judges with a great baggage or load of knowledge and study in the History of American Law and many court decisions of the past ( Consuetudinary Law or Custom ) and great knowledge of U. S. Congress Laws ( Statutory Law or Written Laws ).

The Wisdom and Knowledge of these Great Judges of the Circuits ( Lower Courts ) should not be despised.

The U. S. Supreme Court should not be a replacement for the U. S. Congress when there is a Political Gridlock and Congress is divided as in the present time. It is wise to wait for a new U. S. Congress.

And besides that there are many political developments : Russell Pearce, the author of SB 1070 was ousted in a recall election and Jan Brewer, Governor or Arizona is losing power and popularity. The Arizona Supreme Court is in Great Contradiction and Conflict with that Governor.

There is Great Opposition to SB 1070 in Arizona on the part of Mayors of very important cities, some city councils are opposed to it, as well as many county commissioners, and most important many Arizona sheriffs and Police Chiefs decry this law, Arizona business opposes this law and the community is divided.

All this produces political and economic developments that should not be ignored in a final decision about SB 1070.

This could drag for years and that is for the better of the American nation. !

Wow! Hispanics, Latinos, whichever you prefer are so prominent! As a gringo male, I really love smelly (to use Louie's joke) Hispanic women. They smell great. I know from personal experience smell the scent of a beautiful Mexican American woman!
