Vaya Con Dios, Mis Amigos

Howling Latina had planned to take her family out to dinner in Manassas for her son's birthday tomorrow and after reading the Washington Post article about a countywide business ban by Latinos, she is happy to say she will make certain she does not trade with any banned business.

You see, Ricardo Juarez, a Mexican-American activist, has "organized a week-long boycott in Prince William in protest of an anti-illegal immigration resolution unanimously approved by county supervisors July 10."

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, you GOP batwings in PWC! Let every person of Hispanic heritage join the boycott and make their voices heard.

In fact, HL thinks she'll take it up a notch and write a few of the banned businesses to let them know why they'll be losing out on some $$$$. Just a little something-something they should be able to understand -- even when expressed in Spanish.

Of the boycott, the batwing county officials are outraged, of course.

He is not a moderate voice," said Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large). "I see him as an extremist who is hurting the entire Latino community by whipping them up into this anger and trying to convince them that this is a racist measure."
Stewart has been the paragon of civility and reasonableness, don't cha know. Welcome to the county show where the pot calls the victim kettle black.
