Guzzardi`s Column:

Abolishing America`s Sport (Contd.)—Why Not Limit
Foreign Players Like The Caribbean League?

Here`s an
interesting follow up to Guzzardi`s column that
questions what the overall contribution to American
society of foreign-born

Major League baseball players
may be.

In the case of

Ozzie Guillen
it is not much.

Two days after
Guzzardi`s essay posted Guillen, the Chicago White Sox
manager, was thrown out of a game against the Kansas
City Royals. Ultimately, he was suspended

In the clubhouse,
Guillen did some macho posturing suggesting that the
Royals should be on the look out for retribution in
future games between the two clubs.[White
Sox Fall Out of First,
By Mark Gonzales,
Chicago Tribune
, August 4, 2008]

What`s most
interesting is that in a recent interview (see it

) Guillen held himself up as a "role model"
for young Hispanics—this despite his

numerous ejections
that include two previous
suspensions, his many

post-game interviews and a
throat-slashing gesture.

And regarding the

national question
, Guillen is truly bad.

Although he became
an American citizen two years ago and has prospered here
beyond his wildest dreams, Guillen claimed after his
swearing-in that America "is not an easy country."

Guillen, making
repeated references to the hardships of those who come
here, favors more immigration.

In a quote that
sounds like it could have come straight from the Main
Stream Media, Guillen said: "Do you know how many
people die every week just to live in this country?

As Guzzardi said,
none of these athletes qualify to be role models for our

But if they did,
Guillen—despite what he thinks about himself—certainly
is the last one I would pick.

A Female Marine From Texas Says “Don`t Ignore Us, Don`t Deny Us”

Raping The Military

in 1977, at a time when those who had
been drafted were either out of the military, as their
enlistments had ended, or were on their second, third or
fourth enlistments. 

At the time, women were not allowed aboard ships, so I
dealt with resentment of my

fellow Marines
in that, if our unit was deployed, I
would be re-assigned to shore duty while a man would be
transferred in to replace me. 

My reaction was "tell Congress to change

—I was more than willing to fulfill my
duties wherever the

Marine Corps
determined I was needed.

As to physical differences Taylor mentions—yes, there
are certain realities but it`s up to the individual,
male or female, to make the necessary adjustments.

At 5` 6", that`s what I did. And I performed my job as
well as any man.

As far as women`s ability to kill, which also concerns
Taylor, I have no problem there either.

Let me tell you this story.

We were living in Mexico
when the

attacks occurred and were unable to return to
the U.S. until the following Friday. I walked into the
closest Marine Corps recruiting office and offered to
sign up.

don`t believe Taylor gives credit to women`s desire for
revenge when our security is at risk. We take threats to
our lives seriously and are eager to protect our loved
ones and ourselves.

Finally as far as

sexual harassment
, Taylor failed to mention that the
Marine Corps is an all-volunteer force. If one chooses
to join, then it is incumbent on the individual to deal
with the issues as they present themselves.

Women in the Marine Corps can and do contribute. Don`t
ignore us and don`t deny us!

A California Reader Defends Peter Brimelow and Joe Guzzardi Against Racist Rants

Re:  Saturday

A Hispanic Reader Wants Guzzardi and Brimelow Dead—Or At

Cowardly letter

Despite what "Kukulcan"

them to sweep it under the rug.

Blaming America and
