a history lesson for Micky...
I thought Micky could use a history lesson. The Basque secession movement didn’t come from nowhere. Because the Basque community largely identified with the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War, the Franco government violently suppressed Basque culture and even the use of the Basque language. Thousands of Spaniards, mostly Basques, who had fled to France, were deported by the Vichy regieme and died in concentration camps. (For details, see the Wikipedia article on Franco.)
Given this history, the idea that because a lot of Basques (not all) want to secede from Spain means that we will be facing a Hispanic movement to pull the southwest out of the US, is, well, quite a stretch.
And while I’m giving Micky a hard time- couldn’t you, just once, spread unfounded rumors that a REPUBLICAN politician is having an affair?
