    Just for conversation sake....

    1. He was in Mexico speaking to fellow Mexicans.

    2. For me, this falls into the category of "what I said, what I should have said."

    I think what he said was a pretty accurate statement.

    Would it have been better if he said it differently? Of course.

    But Racist? I don't think so.

    Golly gee ya think a translation of a animal "Fox" means that "Zorro" should distance himself from the "Hispanic" name...what was this all about...Is he ashamed of his heritage or what? :wine:


    PS:Fox being the English snob version!

    their collective wet backs.. They do the job FOR WAGES THAT NO AMERICAN WILL WORK FOR. Plain and simple. Toss their asses out. That forces the law breaking employers to up the old wage ante and Americans get the jobs back.. All this talk, especially from George Bush (he's dumber than a box of rocks on this issue) about jobs Americans won't due is HORSE HOCKEY!!! What? Who did these jobs before the mexi's crossed the border illegally and lowered the wage scale? Americans that's who. Kids mowed lawns. White folks, me included at one time, black folks, natives, American hispanics, all of us use to frame houses, do some roofing. But hell no now because the greedy employers can pay the illegals cheap-shit wages and pocket more profit.. George Bush and others who spout the "let em come in" mantra are just plain full of it..... I guarantee you if GM started hiring illegals to work the line for $5.00 an hour the UAW would lose its jobs pronto.. This is pure and simple capitalism, pay the illegals what an American won't work for and Voila!! suddenly Americans are lazy. Oh by the way FUCK VINCENTE FOX WITH A JACKHAMMER!!!!!!!

    Those that did this before there were illegal immigrants were the legal immigrants that couldn't get jobs elsewhere because they couldn't speak English and they took jobs they could get until they assimilated. We have cut legal immigration to nothing more than a trickle (in the big scheme of things) and therefore, there ARE many jobs that Americans will not take. This country has always relied on a source of cheap labour to prosper. In the beginning, it wasiendentured servants, then slaves and then after slavery was banned, we got our cheap labour from legal but poor, often uneducated immigrants mainly from Europe (Ireland) and Asia (Chinese). Now we rely on illegal immigrants because we have shut our doors to poor, uneducated immigrants that can't speak English or contribute to the workforce from day one (i.e. specialists).

    Given just twenty years ago when I was framing houses and roofing. And for damn good wages then too, a lot more than they pay the wet back's now. And when I was framing, between college semesters and summers, all the guys were whites or blacks,, and all Americans, not a single foreignor among them. And this was the same all over my region of the country. NO WE HAVEN"T ALWAYS RELIED ON CHEAP FORIEGNERS!! That's bullshit I've no doubt you read about and did not experience... Did you? These good jobs that once paid well, quite well, I made as much and more framing, was damn good at it, than I did coming out of college for several years. But hell no not now.. Now it's all mexi's building your houses.. Hope you sleep well under that roof built by a semi-literate Mex that speaks no english and won't be living here long so doesn't give a rat's ass about the quality of work.. Your answer is classic bullshit marxism.. So I'm damn sure you READ it and didn't live it.. You see, in case you're young and naive, professors and intellectuals lie like dogs.

    You need to mature a bit if you would like to engage in debate.

    I too worked summer jobs and made good money... that was over 20 years ago and our population was not nearly as large as it is now nor was the cost of living like it is now.

    You are TOTALLY wrong to state that we have not always relied on cheap sources of labour. Your IGNORANCE is shining through. Did we not have indentured servants? Did we not have slavery? Did we not have a HUGE influx of legal immigrants from Europe in the early 20th century? Those were all sources of CHEAP labour. Today there are lots of kids in certain parts of the country that still make good money during the summers hauling hay, framing/roofing houses, etc. They just ain't doing it in the city where they wouldn't do the work anyway because city kids are too spoiled. One could even make the argument that all the laws AGAINST kids working in "dangerous" jobs is another reason why we NEED illegals (or at least some kind of source of cheap labour). See, your argument against mine actually solidifies mine. When you were working those jobs making "good money" (what you and me thought was good money cuz we weren't out having to live on your own), WE were a SOURCE of cheap labour.
