    Happy Mexican Independence Day!

    Today marks the 213th anniversary of "El Grito De Dolores", which was the battle cry for independence at Dolores, Hidalgo, for Mexico's independence. http://nbclatino.com/2013/09/15/mexican-americans-celebrate-mexican-independence-day-el-grito/ (I am not Mexican-American, FYI.)

    *I know there are a bunch of us MEXICANs and descendants of Mexicans in this forum. Forgive my enthusiasm, but I'm proud to be a MEXICAN, if you didn't already know it.*

    :cool: You thought I'd forget?

    We beat the French peeps that time. If we celebrate that, what would the fun be? It would be like the Cowboys celebrating beating the Jaguars or the Raiders... :p

    This was the first "Grito" for current President Peña Nieto in our nation's capital:

    I've been thinking about Santa Anna's leg all day.
