Would you also call the illegals 'wetbacks'? Or are you only PC in one direction? You are talking about MY President, JP....and I don't know of anybody personally who ever used derogatory slurs toward BO or even Bill Clinton during his 'heyday' years.
To say you are getting more disgusting by the day would be an understatement.
a Mexican living in the US, especially without official authorization.
If you know any Mexican people then you'll know this is a non-derogatory term used to refer to US citizens. Mostly because the term "American" does not make sense to the rest of the Americans (all those people who live in the continent named "America", which is everybody from Alaska to argentina), and the word "Estadounidense" (UnitedStatean)is too long.
Folklore says it was generated when the US invaded mexico, wearing green uniforms, and the people shouted at them "Green Go Home".
With time it lost all derogatory status and was turned into the most common word to refer to any US citizen.
"with time" I guess YOU missed the train ..."time marches on"....
AND I didn't want to confuse you by referring to 2 "El Presidentes"....
Time doesn't stop the excuse you use
Gringo (male) or Gringa (female) (/ˈɡrɪŋɡoʊ/, Spanish: [ˈɡɾiŋɡo], Portuguese: [ˈɡɾĩɡu]) is a term, mainly used in Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking countries, to refer to foreigners. In Spanish, gringo refers to someone from the United States, particularly a person who is a White American.
The word was originally used in Spain to denote any foreign, non-native speakers of Spanish. Although it has a generally neutral connotation, sometimes Hispanic Americans use the word as a derogatory term towards Americans, mainly but not exclusively white, and the derogatory connotation depends upon the context, body language or tone of voice used
And we all are aware of YOUR connotation, JP.
RE:And we all are aware of YOUR connotation, JP.
WE are?...are WE?
Someone telling you what to post? Multiple personalities?
derogatory connotation depends upon the context, body language or tone of voice used
I know you can't "hear the tone of my voice", and you I know can't see my 'body language",(please tell me you can't see me now) so give me an explanation of YOUR interpretation of derogatory language in the "context" of my post.
So YOU don't want to talk about the response?
That's what I figured...Mexico stood up to TheRUMP....
"We will look for a date to schedule something in the future. We will keep the lines of communication open," White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.
Back in So. California I heard many origin stories for
gringo. Take your pick. Never heard it as an insult.
Now, mojado/a or gabacho/a, that's a different story.
"derogatory slurs toward BO or even Bill Clinton"
I recall late-night comics having a field day with comments, of varying vulgarity, on BC's inability to 'keep it in his pants'.
SE threads have been full of derogatory comments, from various sources, on Obama, H. Clinton, Trump and a host of others, many of whom were sworn US officeholders.
I noticed your careful definition of ******* (Sp. mojado/a). Was it in Bill's OP?
RE: only PC in one direction
and here I thought ONE of the qualities of TheRUMP that Tea Party members liked was that HE wasn't PC.
MOI?...French for me.
I had heard it this way:
President: 'You won't do it my way, so we're not gonna meet!'
Presidente: 'And the bad news is ...?'
Fence?...we don't want no stinkin' fence....
N.B. couple used giant manure heap to harass neighbours, judge rules
So massive was the pile of manure lining the edge of David and Joan Gallant’s property in rural New Brunswick, it could be seen using satellite imagery.
And the stench? Unbearable, they said. Especially after it rained or when the wind blew from the east.
But despite the Gallants’ repeated complaints to neighbours Lee and Shirley Murray, the pile of poop just sat there for almost a year, part of an ugly — and escalating — dispute.
The Murrays had without question set out to make the Gallants’ lives “miserable,” Court of Queen’s Bench Justice George Rideout said in a recent decision. “The manure was piled high and a photo taken by Google (Earth) from a satellite shows it.”
