|Your Psyche is Blue|
You are deeply emotional and very connected to everything (and everyone) around you.
By simply understanding other people, you are able to help them heal and let go.
While you are a very deep and thoughtful person, you do have a very silly, superficial side.
When you are too blue: the weight of the world's problems hangs over you
When you don't have enough blue: you lack perspective and understanding
|You Are Crimson Red|
Down to earth and warm-hearted, you instantly make everyone feel at ease around you.
And while you have an understated passion - you lack the uncontrolled passion of most other reds.
You prefer to sit back and enjoy every situation life has to offer. You put an optimistic spin on everything.
And even when things are going well, you don't get too amped up. You prefer to keep your emotions as steady as possible.

HR4437 is a bill that was passed by the House of Rep to try and control immigration entering into this country. It will automatically make all illegal immigrants criminals, and everybody who help them, as well (even if you are not aware that they do not have papers, you will be sent to jail on a felony). If this bill passes, the police will serve as the border patrol and will be able to stop anybody who looks like an illegal immigrant on the street and ask for their papers. If you do not have proof of legally being in this country, you will be sent to jail. If you do have proof, but the person next to you does not, you will both be sent to jail. This bill, instead of helping control immigration, is providing a feeling of threat and terror. They state that this is a bill to stop terrorism, not to stop immigration. Yet it is only focused on the US/Mexico border, not the Canadian border (which lets not forget that is where the terrorists came in from). This law is quickly labeling immigrants as terrorists and criminals, when the majority of them are here for a job and an opportunity to succeed.
This law is racist and unjust. It labelizes people by its race and goes against our freedom as human beings. IT MUST STOP NOW!!!!
This is why I went to this protest. You can support by wearing white today, not going to school on Monday or buying anything on Monday. This will show the importance of all latinos in this country and its economy. If you are for this bill, I will have to ask you to restrain yourself from answering, I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR YOUR COMMENTS. Here is the note from the LA Times
More Than 500,000 Rally in L.A. for Immigrants' Rights
By Teresa Watanabe and Anna Gorman, Times Staff Writer
2:51 PM PST, March 25, 2006
Joining what some are calling the nation's largest mobilization of immigrants ever, hundreds of thousands of people boisterously marched in downtown Los Angeles Saturday to protest federal legislation that would crack down on undocumented immigrants, penalize those who help them and build a security wall on the U.S. southern border. Spirited crowds representing labor, religious groups, civil-rights advocates and ordinary immigrants stretched over 26 blocks of downtown Los Angeles from Adams Blvd. along Spring Street and Broadway to City Hall, tooting kazoos, waving American flags and chanting "Si se puede!" (Yes we can!). The crowd, estimated by police at more than 500.000, represented one of the largest protest marches in Los Angeles history, surpassing Vietnam War demonstrations and the 70,000 who rallied downtown against Proposition 187, a 1994 state initiative that denied public benefits to undocumented migrants.
The marchers included both longtime residents and the newly arrived, bound by a desire for a better life and a love for this county.
Arbelica Lazo, 40, illegally immigrated from El Salvador two decades ago but said she now owns two business and pays $7,000 in taxes annually.
Jose Alberto Salvador, 33, came here illegally just four months ago to find work to support the wife and five children he left behind; in his native Guatemala, he said, what little work he could find paid only $10 a day. "As much as we need this country, we love this country," Salvador said, waving a stick with both the American and Guatemalan flag. "This country gives us opportunities we don't get at home."
Saturday's rally, spurred by anger over legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last December, was part of what many say is an unprecedented effort to organize immigrants and their supporters across the nation. The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee is to take up efforts Monday to complete work on a comprehensive immigration reform proposal. Unlike the House bill, which beefed up border security and toughened immigration laws, the Senate committee's version is expected to include a guest worker program and a path to legalization for the nation's 10 to 12 million undocumented immigrants.
In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of people have staged demonstrations in more than a dozen cities. The Roman Catholic Church and other religious communities have launched immigrant rights campaigns, with Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony taking a leading role in speaking out against the House bill and calling on his priests to defy its provisions that would make felons of anyone who aided undocumented immigrants. In addition, several cities, including Los Angeles, have passed resolutions against the House legislation and some, such as Maywood, have declared itself a "sanctuary" for undocumented immigrants.
"There has never been this kind of mobilization in the immigrant community ever," said Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights. "They have kicked the sleeping giant. It's the beginning of a massive immigrant civil rights struggle."
One of the marchers Saturday, Jose Alberto Salvador, 33, left his wife and children behind in Guatemala four months ago to cross the border into the United States so he could earn enough money to return home and buy a house.
Jorge Valdovinos, 43, is a legal immigrant from Mexico who has three US-born children and works as a financial advisor.
Amid a sea of American and Mexican flags, protesters chanted "Si Se Puede!" and waved banners in Spanish that read, "We aren't criminals" and "The USA is made by immigrants."
"I love this country as if it were my own, for the opportunities it has given me," said Laurentino Ramirez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who works at a garment factory. "The law is unjust for those who don't have papers. We come to work. We don't come to do harm to anyone."
Many of the marchers were immigrants themselves — both legal and illegal -- from Mexico and Central America. Some had just crossed the border, while others had been here for decades. There were construction workers and business owners; families with young children and people in wheelchairs. Throughout the afternoon, protesters heard speakers demand a path toward legalization and denounce HR 4437, which would tighten border enforcement and crack down on employers who hire undocumented workers.
The rally was organized by numerous unions, religious organizations and immigrant rights groups and publicized through Spanish-language media, which encouraged participants to wear white to symbolize peace and bring American flags. The mostly peaceful march stretched over 26 blocks, shutting down streets and tying up traffic around downtown for hours. Police estimated the crowd at 500,000, more than five times the size of the 1994 rally against California's Proposition 187, which would have denied services to undocumented immigrants. Participants said the massive mobilization shows that immigrants' voices must be heard and that they are contributing to the country's economy.
Why do I mention this? Because this Saturday something horrible happened at one of their presentations. They went to Brazil to promote the group and there were like 15000 who went to get an autograph. So, in last minute, they were asked to sing instead because of the amount of people at the event. They were only able to sing 2 songs, then they were taken away. A brick fence that had separated the stage from the audience fell down becuase many of the fans were pushing the people on the front. This caused the death of 3 people and injured about 40 others. Yesterday, another person passed away in the hospital. This was a very sad thing that happened and the group is devastated. So I decided to just talk about it in my LJ. This has hurt the fan community as well, because it could have easily been any one of us. To see them cry, I mean these are young people ages 19-22, and this has really affected them. So it hurts me to see them cry and blame themselves for something that was out of their control. The people who organized the event were to blame because they did not make sure they had all the permits necessary to hold so many people in that place. So yeah just wanted to talk about it a bit...Myspace has more about this incident and it has been the talk of the week, blaming the group and stuff...so Yeah.
Oh well, guess that's it for right now...will update as soon as I have time cuz there's more to say and stuff.
For those from Brazil, my condolesence to you and remember we are here for you guys.
so i woke up and was watching the rose parade....sounds like fun, huh...yeah right...oh well...so it was over at almost 11am. So, like every year, the channels started to show it again...just in case i wasnt bored enough already...and all of a sudden i hear a poof and the lights go out...so, because it had been raining and it was really windy, it wasnt a surprise that this happened...so we went about at our usual thing...so it was 12, 1, next thing we know its 2pm and the light is still not on...so we were starting to get bored and we began to play games and talk about old times and stuff...we kept busy and next thing i knew it was 4pm. Nothing was happening with the lights and my bro told us that obvioulsy all of the city did not have light (we do live in the beginning of the city so that was no surprise), whereas the county like always had light...so, i called my sis Chelo and turns out they did not have light either...now they dont live in the city of LA they live by the county, more like in Cudahy, which I dont think is even part of the county of LA...So, i went shopping to Target (where there was light because it;s at the county)...My sis went with me...and we took our own sweet time and came back close to 7:30pm, and still no light...my mom had already taken out her small TV and was watching it through batteries, and we turned on our flash lights to eat and stuff...to make things short...the light did not return until 10pm...so we were 11 hours without light...that only happens when there's an earthquake...i spoke to Chelo over the phone at around 8pm and she wasnt home anymore, she had gone to visit a friend in City Terrase and there was no light there either...that is part of the county of LA but it's still interesting...see this is how it works, the company the city has is the Dept of Water and Power...the county has Edison...so there really is no way that both the county and city lose power at the same time...usually when the city loses the power, the county doesnt...and vice versa...so it was really interesting...
who knows what happened because the news didnt say anything...but i just thought it was very interesting...
so that was it...the rain finally stopped for the next day, but we will be getting more rain soon...
i guess that's it for now...what have I learned...life is really short and you really should live it to the fullest cuz u never know what tomorrow will bring
take care and happy new year...
to forget bout my probs for a while I decided to steal this quiz from Jamie...which you can ignore completely
