The kids growing up now are deprived of the opportunities to earn money pitching hay in barns or cutting and hanging tobacco, because it's all done with new-age slave-labor, and many are too spoiled to air conditioning and video games anyway. But the remaining fact is, many US citizens are being left out in the cold, while hoards of industrious and hard working Mexicans are wrangled into these jobs at the drop of a hat! The use of illegal immigrants are taking over almost all construction jobs even in my small town. It's not much different from what folks went through 150 yrs. ago, except on such a grand scale, maybe even worse.
The youth that has become non-participant in simple farm-work has lead to an almost defunct work ethic throughout the country, all the while wearing and using everything Wal-Mart has to offer.
Yep I have walked the barn rails a few times myself as a young man. Cut and stuck, hung. Even picked strawberrys, detasseled corn, all that fun stuff. Its a different ballgame now.
I wish it would go back to the days when an honest days work brought you an honest days pay.
I might get my wish if things keep going like they are. The question is, will the new generation be able to handle it?
I wonder.

Approximately a third of the citizens pay goes toward taxes. Illegal Mexicans don't pay no taxes, so their cheaper pay is equal to ours after taxes. Thats the reason that about a dozen live in the same household and all chip in to buy the car.

I'm afraid the majority of people have been led to believe we are much smarter than the rest of the world, and at one time we were much more educated than most, but not smarter. The new generation will be very accomplished for firing cruise missiles to remote destinations, hopefully not to our IP addresses.

Just like Americans used to do when they had families that stuck together, like in, "The Grapes of Wrath". Legal Mexicans are welcome here to balance the loss of Social Security taxes after the baby boomers retire in mass quanties, which began about 5 yrs. ago. Without a mass paying in, the younger of the boomers may be left to fend the best way they can, much as we are doing, without jobs.

Yep you know all about it I guess. I don't live a mile from a HUB like some people. LOL
I am tapping windstream's a$$ right now though, have been for a month or so. So you're right about that much, if nothing else. Triangulate LOL.
I might tap comcast for a while next. Who knows.
I am out for the night for really realz in a few.
So any Imposter posting before tomorrow evening will be an Imposter imposter and a real arshole for doing it. After I reply to one of the few REAL people on this high society thread that is.
Night, screw.
If you mean by"tapping windstreams a$$"you're paying for the modem and service I agree with you.Other than that,I think you are trying to pretend you're something you're not.Sadly no one cared what your social or economic standing in life is.People are more interested in the way you treat the other posters on this thread.And even more sad,you failed that miserably.When I say "you",I'm also referring to the other relentless haters you hang around with.

Here is another off the wall
Mitt Romney - Snake Oil Salesman
He has no plan for America
The Snake Oil Salesman
1. Raise taxes on those making less then $250,000.00
2. Lower taxes on those making more then $250,000.00
He will be worse then the LIAR George W. Bush, the last Republican that bought his way into the White House.
Mitt Romney bought the Republican nomination. Don't let this liar buy his way into the White House.
I am Mitt Romney and I approved this message.
I am a Republican voting for the GREAT OBAMA
He may not be the best but I don't believe that he would be any worse than what we have right now. Oh well more dead birds, the turkey's are flourishing though.

Very true..It will be cheaper to let the terminally ill people die rather that spend all of that money just trying to keep them alive a few days or months or even maybe a year longer.

You won't feel that way when it's your turn though. If we killed everybody that was unemployed, enemployment would be zero.

After I looked again, I realized how it read. Most of my post are tolerable I suppose, except the one's sparring with you! lol...Vile posts are taken to heart, while sincere and honest posts are virtually ignored.

I haven't seen any sincere posts. I don't get on that often, someone likes to hit my computer. It really reads as a threat about the birds. Maybe you could explain?

I'm not threatening anyone that I'm aware of, maybe I'm not following you. The mass dying of anything is a threat as long as nobody can determine the cause of these deaths. It could be people next.

No I know exactly what is causing the "deaths". They like to document and follow it on topix. The sad part is a family problem became a public display of hate on this particular topic. When the deals started going bad, people started threatening innocent people, now in two states. Most people in the area around there know exactly who is threatening and why. It just got easier to strike at the person who was innocently trying to live their lives, not realizing their very existance uncovered the lies in the others. Truth is powerful. Truth changes things. People don't like the truth when it changes the things built on lies. Build your life on quicksand and then blame the sand for the destruction...isn't that the plan.

It appears that someone spent most all night trying to convince others of their IT Tech savvy prowess, rather than just quietly going on about their business.

As Abraham Lincoln once told an ambitous young General "A chicken must be the smartest being in the world because it only cackles AFTER it lays the egg".
