    "If one creates a state by driving a people off their land, one has to expect this sort of outcome." Colin, is your hypocrisy intentional or is it merely the fact that you don't know the history of your own state? Well, if you never learned this in school, let me just explain it to you in simple terms. California was originally inhabited by animals and plants. Later, Asians migrated across the Bering Strait and settled down in California. Later, the Spanish came, claimed and occupied the area and Juniperro Serra set up his missions. After the Mexicans gained independence from Spain, they took over California and all the other Spanish possessions in North America. And then, my friend, came the gringos like you: a tiny minority of Americans revolted against the Mexican government and took over California; they declared The Bear Flag Republic and petitioned and then joined the Union. And what about the poor Mexicans there? They became 2nd class citizens. So who are you to criticize?
