You don't know the definition of slave do you.
A slave is a person held against their will and forced to work without pay. An illegal alien is not a slave by any definition of the word.
No country per say in 1492 but individual tribes had land they claimed as their own and fought to protect it so in a sense they had countries.

Did not the Mayans take in defeated tribe members as slaves?

Did not the Mayans build a civilization based upon sun worship and human sacrifice?

Did Mexico not place a bounty on scalps of indigeonous natives?

Was this not well before 1492.

Mexican men use the term Rapto to justify the rape of young girls?

Aztec Slaves

Aztec slaves were either sacrificed or had to do labor. They had to do what their master told them to do. They had to clean the house, grow the garden, and other things slaves did.

You got that right. This puppy mill next door to me is pregnant, every 12 months. She has twins, every time. With all the money she's making off those babies, why doesn't she move into a bigger apt? 11 people in a 3 BR apt? She even has bunk beds in her living room. She's due any day and, I just want to kick her fat azz down a hill.
Why should she not get a larger apartment. If her children were born in the US she deserves the assistance and a larger apartment. You would get the same if in her place.

What those kids deserve is a responsible father and mother who don't expect our governmnet to provide for their kids. If you can't feed them, don't breed them.

America needs to line up its military at the Mexican Border. Take over the Country. Make Mexico a state in the union. Since most of the People there, want to come here, then grant them thier wish and take over the Country. Oh of course, then we could take down all of our dual Spanish/American signs everywhere too. Make them all learn English. It is what we speak here. Maybe Mit Romni will have an answer. He thinks he can o a better job. But we will see is the same thing that happened to obama. Comes in promising the world and big change. All that will happen after a few years is the same ol same ol, and he will just have grayer hair.

You are now saying that billions and billions of crops are harvested in the United States?

So there are bilions of potatoe crops harvested in Idaho? There must be 100 billion farms in Idaho, right?

Who cares juan she and you shouldn't even be in the country in the first place let alone still here. It's painfully obvious that only a few of your braincells survived the birthing process much to our dismay. Nobody cares about your tales of woe or your narcissistic drivel. Go down a bottle of nitol.

From what I have read of your posts, it's you who are stupid. You post stuff that most people consider private and lord only knows why you think it's info that should be on any forum. Stupid is as stupid does whoever you really are.
