Yes, but you are pushing beyond the bounds of good taste. We have folks of all races, nationalionality, and religion reading these post. So lets remember that we are all supposed to live together.

My European wife is Spanish and I never met a harder worker. Being a hard worker was not, however, enough. She had to be here 5 years legally and then demonstrate a knowledge of American History and the English language.
Why is it not fair to require everyone else to do the same?

It is good to see people that earn their way.

Trouble is, with all those kids, I am having to pay some of your taxes. I am sure you might not see it that way. Hey, all I can say is I am glad I can help you out there! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

How are you paying some of my taxes? We pay taxes. We don't use some of the services that taxes pay for though. I homeschool, so we don't use the money from taxes for that. We don't get public assistance. Everytime I buy food or clothing for my kids, I pay taxes for sure. As much food and clothing as we buy, I guarantee I am paying a LOT of taxes.

You may not have intended to, but that remark was taken as not nice. It is hard to read someones tone on the internet. I resent people who have many children and can't afford them, but we pay for and care for our children on our own. I stay home and pinch pennies. As I mentioned, I even homeschool, so my kids are not a burden there either.

I think big families are wonderful. No one in our family will ever be in need as we will be there for one another. Most of my friends have at least 4 kids and homeschool as well. A lot of them own campers as well, btw. We always meet large families who homeschool when we are camping.

OK, now we are way off topic. This has gone from a joke about mexicans, to complaining about mexicans, to defending mexicans, to complaining about spoiled americans, to now discussing large families.

If anyone would like to discuss large families, feel free to start a topic in the general discussion forum. I am forced to defend our decision to have a large family and to homeschool all the time. I am willing to discuss this topic nicely and openly with anyone who would like to listen. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I was just responding to your information listed below and not being mean. We live in a Socialist Country where we 'share' our successes - that's all!

They took a little bit of state taxes out of my check and no federal. Well, they took a little federal if I happened to work overtime. Then, when I filed my taxes, I actually got money back through the "earned income credit". It was like $3K one year.

Thank you for clarifying that for me. I get a lot of rude comments from people when I take all my littles out. You know the whole "don't you know when to stop" thing. I am a little sensitive there. I got the earned income credit when I was a single mom of 1. Now that I am married, we only qualified for that a couple years (when he was a pastor). DH made 6 figures a couple of years and over the $36K max the rest. Even though they still don't take much federal due to the large # of dependents, we still pay a LOT of other taxes. I also homeschool as I mentioned, so don't use that public service (that is a whole debate in and of itself).

I apologize for being so sensitive. I also happened to have been having a really bad day that day. No excuse, just an explanation. I agree we do "share" our success here. I think it is good in some respects, but not in others. Here is not the place to discuss that either.

Sorry again for getting so off topic and taking offense where none was intended. But boy this topic has taken a few tangents and could go to quite a few more places huh?!

OH, btw, my niece is from Mexico, and she found the joke hysterical.

What part of illegal do some people not understand?

It is not being racist in wanting to control our borders and have people come in legally!

Could it be, that part of the reason that "Americans will not take low paying jobs" because over the decades that our "War On Poverty" has created a situation where it is easier to live on Welfare than to work for a living? I know it is not PC to say so, but think about it.

I agree with ya Hillbilly. It has gotten so bad even in some areas of WI that when I attepted to gain employment at a local lumber mill, it gave me an awakening. I did get the job and was directed to the 3rd shift supervisor. That supervisor said she was too busy so walked me over to a mexican and she said he would train me. Well I had no problem with his nationality, yet when he spoke I could not understand one dang word of what he was telling me to do. Why? Because it was NOT english. The supervisor was nowhere to be found of course. So instead of playing around with the equipment and leaving the shift a few fingers short, I left. In the morning I went in to the office and told the human resource person that when they can get somebody in to train legal US citizens for employment, to give me a call and I would be happy to come back in and work. Never got that call, yet they have expanded and guess what...more mexicans working there. Our government should heavily fine those places. It is not just farm labor that they are taking away, it IS jobs that decent americans will do.

So whoever wants to make that claim that those "jobs" are not wanted by americans, send me an application if you happen to live in my area. I am sure if the companies look hard enough there are people willing to work, stop being so lazy and look for americans to work for you. Our economy has to suffer from the mexicans working those jobs and sending the money to their homeland. If those jobs were filled with legal american workers, the money would be spent right here in the good ol' USA!!!!


P.S. Love the joke (original post)
