    When did all this free stuff mentality start? when we got married we had $250.00 and a car pmt---both had jobs and started a family---never once thought about a handout---never had anyone to give one---I just don't understand the mind set of this country---there is no free lunch---sjb

    I give out free tshirts with orders, so I guess I'm an enabler!

    Freebies are nice if its a kind gesture, not so nice if its a government handout from someone elses' pocket!

    Part of the problem is the overall attitude of the younger generation. Most just don't like to work. How often do you see a younger person that is really happy working. Not many. Many of the Hispanics I come in contact with seem to be happy to have a job, but not many whites and blacks. There are exceptions, but many are just lazy waiting for their next government handout. I guess I'm just getting old.

    I like free stuff. We now have "free" health care. Who wouldn't like that. Don't get too excited about the millions of Mexicans living in this country. They are disproportionately represented in our prison systme with a third of our prisoners being illegal immigrants. They have the highest teen pregnancy rate of any race. They are the least likely to go on to higher education of any race. The first generation out of a third world country will work hard because they are making ten times more money than they did in their home country. Don't think all Mexicans living in Mexico are hard working. If they were they wouldn't be such a corrupt and poverty stricken country. They have a violence with their drug cartels that makes the terrorists in the Middle East look like girl scouts. Don't expect the second generation of Mexians to work their butt off at half the wages of legal Americans. It won't happen. With half of their children being born out of wedlock they will learn to tap into the "free" government handouts. 70 percent of hispanics voted for Obama and "free" stuff. They will drag America further down.

    Slip across the border with some coca and meth, sell it to the stupid gringo's kids, use the money to rent a house [for sixteen and more coming]. Get some food stamps and health care. {the stupid gringos pay for it all even my little Lupees abortion}.

    That's Bullshit. ( where I live anyhow} I know many hard working guys that would kill for a $20 per hour job right now. Americans will do any dirty job that pays good enough to support a family. I'm talking about solid guys, not hood rats.

    family---now I ask U how much are U willing to pay 4 those items---bet U or your wife complain about the high cost at the supermarket---don't B so unhappy---Obama will take care of it---if we are going to give all those guys that will kill for a fair hr rate we better B ready to pay---gL---sjb

    If we didn't have to pay to house the illegals in our prisons for crimes they have commited, if we didn't have to spend the money to fight the drug war they bring into our country, if we didn't have to pay for their health care, to educate their children, if we didn't have to provide them with food and housing, if our wages weren't undermined by cheap third world labor but were set by an open and fair market rate using Americans, then we wouldn't mind paying a little extra for some items where some employer didn't illegally use cheap slave third world labor. I don't blame the poverty stricken Mexican trying to leave the poverty and violence that is Mexico behind. I do blame the traitor SOB American employer that hires them. I wish I had the power to put them in jail and close down their businesses.

    Highflyer--I agree---It's the liberals that make it impossible to detect what mex is legal or not---they are the ones that use legal services to protect the eleagle---they want them 4 future votes---I wish true hard working americans would apply for the jobs that the mexicans are cleaning up on---believe me U wont find americans to do the work I explained in my last post---and it won't B a little more to pay 4---U can't believe the cost the farmer has been put under
    to gather their crops---the regulation put on them by the liberals put them in a position that they can't compete with foreign countries---In time all our food will come from over seas---REMBER THE GAS SHORTAGE back in the 70s?just wait for the food shortage.then see how much we have to pay for foodHow many young farmers do U know? they are becoming extinct.An employer can B fined if they even ask the person if they are leagle---Most people like U are unaware of the rules they are put under.
    Why are most of our industry going overseas? Believe me I am with U in your thinking but we have to be realalistic. gL--sjb

    the main reason people won't work is of course because we pay them not too. Take that away and you have a brand new ball game again. This country wasn't built on social welfare, but hard work. Something it will likely not see much more of. We are becoming a socialist nation by leaps and bounds.
