    well i saw a couple of small altercations between the cubans and whoever when i lived in miami.
    things could've gotten out of control but cooler heads prevailed.
    the mexicans seem a little more hotheaded from what i've seen down there. jmho.

    I don't think there is much chance here in Maine.

    Here in South Florida all is quiet. Althought we have a share of Mexicans working the fields, I don't see them raising hell. There is not a whole lotta love between mexicans and cubans and I did not see a march anywhere close.
    Anybody else has the feeling that this movement is being financed from outside? There is something fishy here and I am not doubting that S will HTF and then there will be a huge backlash against the illegal aliens.

    Specially if you figure that the second source of income for Mejico is the money the illegals send.

    I do have the feeling something is coming and will happen on the Left Coast.

    what we're seeing is a breakdown in the rule of law. Because of selective enforcement along with all the crazy laws on the books, people don't see the point. Everybody only cares for themselves and seeing what they can take from others.

    Email just sent hoping that by contacting my senator we avoid the SHTF scenario:

    Dear Senators Graham and Mack:
    It is with great distress that I write you. As a Naturalized US Citizen who swore allegiance to this great Country, it makes me sick that a rally, on our soil, sponsored by media outlets with foreigh interests went as far as to defend the breaking of the laws of the land and seeing our flag subsumed by a foreign flag in our soil.

    It is time to make a stand and defend our Country from such blatant disregard for our laws, our sybols and our culture. It is up to you as Legislators to make a stand and say 'No More' if nothing else for those you represent that came to this Country legally and have become Americans in heart and soul.
    Attention Floridians: Write your Senators and Representatives. This is not only a political point but a concern for our security. Remember that among those "Poor Undocumented Souls" we have a great number of MS-13 Members and other assorted criminals.

    Senator Connie Mack connie@mack.senate.gov
    Senator Bob Graham bob_graham@graham.senate.gov

    I don't see it happening.
    But then again, I always underestimate the power of mobs.

    After I get my bonus this week, i'm looking at purchasing a nice rifle, because i'm probably wrong about above.

    As poor writer, and worse grammarian , I share the following:

    fo·ment tr.v. fo·ment·ed, fo·ment·ing, fo·ments

    1. To promote the growth of; incite.
    2. To treat (the skin, for example) by fomentation.

    Oft misused, oft mispelled, kind of like the tax code...

    Not pickin' on anyone...just like to get things correct

    What you describe, I don't define as a SHTF scenario. The infrastructure is in place to handle it and recovery will be swift.

    A true SHTF scenario is like a WMD attack or a situation similar to Katrina but on an even larger scale. Infrastructure shattered. No services. No help: LEO, medical or mundane (like A/C repair!). Mass starvation since there will be no food distribution. Water plants fail. You get the idea. Riots are ONLY a problem to the general populace where gun control is strict. Just my .02

    As far as organization, its in place. MS-13 is the biggie, but we have plenty of home-grown Hispanic gangs. The big conflict is that close scrutiny/censure of illegals will bring the gangs & dopers into the light as well. No mas dinero, mano! That directly impacts the standard of living of the Mexican beauracracy and military.

    Have to disagree with you Ex, this could be a major SHTF. From my experiences, in KS, TX, CO, and NM, the Mexican community is Mexican first, Ameican.....well...... Now that is a generalization. I would also posit that a majority of our natural-born citizens, in the mid-lower SES are mouth-breathing morons as well. Exceptions do not make general differences, in everyday life. (The great guy/gal you work with may not be available to vouch for you, in the midst of an angry mob-even if they are, it's only good for you, not general society.)

    But back to SHTF- we already know that LA, Laredo, Houston, Dallas, many other major cities have neighborhoods that the PD will not respond to unless it's enmasse. With the infrastructure of the gangs pumping up the unaffiliated, start two conflicts in seperate boroughs/counties/whathaveyou, make a rush on two of the city's major hospitals, and you've effectively shut down the city. Fire/EMS/PD/SO can't afford to go far from their stations or they'll be burned and/or their vehicles mobbed. Truckers making deliveries? Haha. NG- well, how many cities go up at the same time? 6? Across the country. You'd have to have a shoot-to-kill curfew. Lots of "normal folk" would be less than tolerant of that situation.

    NO was a primer. The degree of ugliness just depends on breadth and penetration of the threat.
