Hey Scotty,

If you love Mexicans so much I must surmise that you also like the country. So, why don't you do all of us a huge favor and move to Mexico? And stay there, will you?

K

Scott,

Take a look at this list of non-criminals:

If Mexicans are so much better why isn't your cartoon in Spanish instead of English? Why don't you insist on being paid in Pesos? Why don't you have a Mexican Doctor? A Mexican Lawyer? Why didn't you go to school in Mexico? How many diseases have the Mexicanss cured? What about the innocent U.S. children who have been infected with diseases from Mexican illegals? I guess you care nothing for them. It would appear that all you want is to be praised for being emlightened and told how superior you are for insulting your own people and praising foreigners. What a pathetic way to get a slap on the back by your liberal masters. Let's hope that these inferior U.S. citizens quit reading your stuff. You don't really want those losers to read it anyway do you? Do us all a favor and send your work to Mexico and don't sell it here.

Scott youre a real let down.

As some have said, how many Mexicans read your stuff anyway? Its a bit like all those earnest rock stars emoting over immigrants - sorry guys those people dont want to buy your records. Maybe youre hoping to pick up enough Indians to make up for your white readers?

Interesting to read some of the whiney, content free, emotive posts like that from Nix for instance. Should people like her (im guessing its a girl) even be allowed to use the internet;)

Is this guy Scott a complete jackass or what? Mexicans are not better than us--the Jews are.

Randall Burns

I've enjoyed aspects of Dilbert over the years. The problem is that Adams appears separated from the reality of a lot of folks. Even if someone is "superior" to another, that doesn't mean it is right to hand over their property to them. citizenship rights are for most Americans, the most valuable property they'll ever have. corporate interests dilute the citizenship rights of the less skilled and less wealthy Americans by promoting illegal immigration-and mass legal immigration.

Adams has a job that is pretty impervious to being affected by immigration. Many Americans just aren't in that position.

Ask yourself for a moment, what it would take to get you to give up your US citizenship. There are places that will sell you citizenship-for $150K or so.

Henry Stanton

If you hate whites so much why don't you move to Mexico. The way that you describe the people there it must be paradise. I am sure that they are superior in making comics.

former fan

wow! I was a big fan of yours until now. After the next civil war begins in this Country, thanks to open border type lovers like you, perhaps we Americans will be kind enough to keep you alive to draw something for us. On second thought, we will just hang you up by your thumbs with the rest of your kind.

Roxan Tiscareno

What are you: A CFR/Trilateral Commision, One-World Order kind of guy?

Do you know about the NAU (North American Union), the union of Canada, the US & Mexico? Or the NAFTA Super Highway?

Or about all those free births (provided courtesy of the tax payer) to all those illegal aliens whose kids are now "automatic citizens" and then progress to get WIC etc benefits and then on to receive free schooling.

You can learn about AZTLAN/ANAHUAC from the websites of: Mexica Movement, La Raza (the Race), MEChA-their motto (For the Race everything, for those outside the Race, nothing) & then read about "La Plan de Aztlan." Then you can get back to us and tell us how wonderful these illegal aliens are.

Christy Ruiz

If Mexicans are so great, how come their country has so many problems? Crime, corruption, a vast wealth divide, very little rule of law, low status of women, the list goes on. Mexico's problems are not caused by its plants, rocks or fauna. It's the people and the culture they have created. Mexico's problems predate the arrival of the Spanish. They merely exploded the situation for their benefit. The sooner Mexico realizes this the sooner this country can get on with coming up with solutions.
The racial paradigm of the guilt ridden great white liberal (the whitie is the root of all evil crowd) is an intellectual non-starter. All humans have flaws. We are all equal. Many cultures, from many races have done terrible things to other cultures. The Aztec's aggression and human sacrifices of the people it conquered helped to lead to its demise at the hands of the Spanish. Empires and the domination that is part of the building of their power is an old story that has taken place all over the world. It has very little to do with race.
Hate and guilt impair intellectual abilities. Before you go off on a rant and print nonsense like the comments in your post. Take some time out and deal with your spiritual and moral issues. There is far too much hate in the world as it is.
By the way the majority of Mexicans are either Native-American or part Native-American.

Greg Aprahamian

Scott why do you hate white people so much?
where is all this nonsense and white American apology coming from?
Are you so wrapped up in political correctness that you can't see that you just trashed an entire nation?
Here is a tip, It is one thing to be humble and offer encouragement to a group that is poorer and in many ways less well off, but the way to do that is not to bring down or cheapen another group.
It is also sad to see how much disdain and contempt you have towards your readers,(who are probably white Americans].

Dude that was a dumb post. Like seriously man, bad bad move. Let me first say, I have the UTMOST respect for an illegal immigrant who joins the U.S. army. That's great. But the bottom line is when you have 10% of a countries population here illegally you have a problem. We have overcrowding in housing, roads, and schools. Look at Los Angeles!!! Do you have children?? If you did, you would be scared shitless to raise them in LA with the fucked up education system that is failing both Americans and illegals alike! This was a bad post especially after all those people were killed in the bridge collapse...our government pays more for illegal immigrants than for fixing our roads so people don't die needlessly! What you are forgetting is that this country has LIMITED RESOURCES. If we could take care of everyone in the world that would be awesome. But we can't. I know that you are rich and you have plenty of stuff, but 99% of Americans are not as lucky as you. Also, most of the money that Mexicans send back home ends up lining the pockets of people like Carlos Slim. American dollars helping to feed a corrupt drug ridden government. This is a very big problem. Bottom line is, Americans need to take care of Americans. When we have stopped BRIDGES from collapsing due to neglect, when we have the school system fixed (such as Detroit which is leading to generations of black children being left behind), when we don't have to spend Billions on stupid wars, when everyone can afford medical insurance and health care, when the American car industry and other blue collar jobs are not disappearing, when the dollar stops dropping, when we have control over the Treasury Debt, when housing prices go down so that you don't have to be a fucking millionaire to live in shitty areas of California, when American jobs stop getting replaced by outsourcing.....When all these problems are fixed....Then by all means....Let's take in more people and improve their lives. But we got a lot of problems as it is, and illegal immigration does not help them.

Hey also, I'm just as good as any other person in this world. I am a comedy writer with a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering earned in 4 years at the same time I earned my bachelors degree which is fucking awesome. For 4 years in college I DID NOT SLEEP (and now that I'm a writer... I still don't!!!) When I was in highschool I cleaned restrooms as my summer job and let me tell you they stank!! I have 4 cats, 2 dogs, and 3 birds and I don't have a maid. I'm trying to support my parents because they don't have retirement. I had my face completely reconstructed and paid OUT OF POCKET for my medical bills (oh and btw I was left outside the hospital with the paramedics for 2 hours because the hospital was too full to accept me with my smashed face--this while the nurses kept running around frantically looking for Spanish interpreters for other patients.) Hell, I'm fucking superior then everyone cuz my head's made out of titanium! BOOYAH! I worked through college and paid for my education. I got a 4.0. My daddy and mommy never bought me a car or helped me put a down payment on a house. If you knew my family or lack thereof, you'd feel very sorry for me. By the way, the other day, I grabbed sheers, stood on the shit steep hill that is my backyard and cut my trees myself. And by god did I do a kickass job!! So let me tell you, my fellow German Irish Native American (I'm Shawnee) English Mutt.....I'm Damn Proud of who I am, where I come from, and what society created me. By saying that I am not putting anyone else down. You however managed to put me down. Thanks. You owe me an apology.

MC- Charlotte NC

- Sex with an underage girl when he was 18-
Mexican raped multi - young girls in Charlotte for years and just got locked up
- Marijuana
Where does most of it come from - south of the boarder
- Speeding-
Their un-safe cars are all over streets and highways of NC and the ones running can’t go the speed limit anyway (bad MC bad- snack on the had for the truthful statement)
- Fudging on taxes
How can you fudge if you don’t pay
- Underage drinking
How can you tell their under age- they didn’t bring the birth certificate with them-
- Illegal copying of songs-
Got me there- then again neither do I-
- Driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit
Ask the 4 families in Charlotte in the last year that have lost a loved one to a drunk Mexican- 2 people where killed in the same time frame from Americans- they- the drunks- should all have a trip to the dirt farm-----
- Stealing office supplies
The Asians clean the office in Charlotte next Mexicans-

2007 Dilbert Calendar in the trash on Monday- never to get another one….

Nice to see you've sold out now, too, Scott. Here we working serfs thought you were on our side. Turns out, a big bank account, large income--and the distance from Mexican-dominated neighborhoods that that money affords you--is enough to buy you off, too. Who needs us lousy Americans? We question authority, refuse to be servile, and demand a working wage. Why hell, if you had to rely on lippy, expensive Americans, your money wouldn't go nearly as far as it does.

F*ck you, you sell-out. You'll be remembered when the revolution comes.

Ernest

I agree Mexicans are better then you. Hell the maggots in my yard are better then you. What is your point?

Jose

I agree with you that mexicans are superior to you. However, they are not superior to the vast majority of real Americans! Mexican's believe that DUI and rape are sports. Mexico is the most corrupt country in the world; everyone is on the take. Many mexicans don't believe in bathing or washing their hands. They not only break the law coming across the border illegally (many times-a felony), but most don't pay Federal or state taxes, they drive without insurance and a drivers license, they commit idenity theft, and break many other laws. You can get a 5 year prison sentence and a $250, 000 fine for pirating videos. By comparison Illegal aliens should receive a minimum 20 years in prison

HarmFamily

Unbelievable, Scott. For over a decade I thought we were on the same page.

Allow me to extend one of the questions you pose back at you:

Ask the Illegally Immigrated Mexican down the street (you know, the "superior in every way guy" who used his "amazing intellect" to figure out all by himself how to use a hammer) how many times he and all his 12,000,000+ illegal bretheren have committed the following crimes:

- Illegally crossing the US border
- Illegally forged documents
- Illegally used forged documents to procure services they would otherwise not be entitled to

By comparison, the loser in your Mom's basement pirating the new Metallica CD (get bent Lars!) is "quaint". In comparison, those 12,000,000 illegal Mexican immigrants seem like jerks.

Another question, Scott: How many of your 12,000,000 illegal immigrant friends will buy YOUR product? Zero. (coincidentally the same number of your products I'll be buying from this point on) Superior Mexican HammerMan (tm) doesn't work in an office, he empties the wastebaskets with his amazing skill set you cherish and covet so highly...until of course, we find out he's used YOUR kid's SS number, forged his birth certificate, and then he's fired, jailed, and released to commit the crimes all over again.

"New" immigrants playing by "new" rules is the topic of a letter to an editor that I came cross thru email, and I decided to publish it at dailycents.com.

If mexicans are so great why does Mexico suck?

In my humble opinion mexicans are ok mixed in with others, but get a lot of them in one place and the place is going to suck.

Hm. Is it racist to wonder why is that not true for -- norwegians, for example?

LateReply

Okay, Mexicans are superior to Americans. Guess what? Chinese are superior to Mexicans.

Let's send some ships over and pick up a million or two willing Chinese to cut our grass. Any racist out there want to guess on what percentage of the Chinese immigrants' kids will graduate high school and what percentage will end up in jails?

If Harvard doesn't have to base their admissions purely on the proximity of the applicant and the applicant's disinclination to fill out the admissions paperwork, why should we?

Sunny said:

"Mexico shoots any illegals crossing their borders."

When did this happen? Last I heard, school groups and tourists regularly crossed the Rio Grande from the US into Boquillas -- right up until US policies killed this tradition. Mexico has always welcomed the US tourist dollar, without imposing any restrictions. Do you have evidence of a radically different policy for immigrants?

The rest of your post made a fair amount of sense, but this one remark has me baffled.

Look, the way I see the biggest problem associated with this problem, is politics and votes. People are just pawns in the political game that many of our elected officials play and this mass of people from south of the border have played right into their hands. Unfortunately, we the people are the ones to suffer, no matter what nationality we are. No one can blame anyone for wanting to better his or her lives. Making them citizens of this country is a benefit to a few and it is the travesty of the whole situation. Most of these people are coming here to make money and that’s all. I will guarantee you that very few come here "wanting to be an American. If they could make their money, and go home, freely, many would. So lets try to separate this business out for what it is and quit trying to do a broad based solution.

A guest worker program would do wonders to fix much of this problem. It would provide a way for people to cross a bridge instead of a desert or river. It would allow for quick and easy registration, which would give a legal way to enter, work and pay taxes in this country. If you have all of that there would be no reason for illegal crossings other than that, which is illegal. Reduce the number of illegal crossings and you reduce the pressure to stop it. It would improve border security and allow for tougher laws and penalties for doing so. The current laws are fueling this activity and creating a no win situation. So if we focus on a guest worker program, maybe something can get done.

1. Create a registration program for those who are already here and for those to come. Allow a registration period without penalty, after that, assess a monetary fine for another period that follows. When that time runs out, deportation without the chance of acceptance for 1 year or some period of time. In other words, make it easy and make it penalty free, but get it done or there will be consequences. This guest worker program would allow freedom to live and work in the U.S. for a given period of time with right to renewal so long as an individual does not violate felony penalty laws.

2. Create a Federal data base system and make it mandatory for businesses to file the proper paperwork when hiring a guest worker. Failure to do so would be in direct violation of law and carry harsh consequences.

3. Tax guest workers at a rate that would reflect social services rather than social security. The impact on social services is obvious and could be calculated accordingly, federal, state, county and city. A federal fund could be created to fund at all levels. This way the guest worker would be contributing toward services likely used.

4. Just as with any other immigrant, every person wishing to become citizens of the U.S. could apply through normal channels. While waiting for process, an individual would reside as a legal alien in the form of a guest worker.

I know this is simplified compared to what would actually take place in creating such a program but I believe it is the first thing that needs to be done and right now the only thing that needs to be done. It takes the politics out of the equation and keeps a group of politicians for cramming anywhere from 12 to 20 million people down the throats of American Citizens and stops them from forcing a group of people from doing something they may not be as interested in as they are just making money and improving their lives, in the country from which they came.
