The responses are merely anecdotal. They don't prove a thing. I could say that I lost my job as a brain surgeon because a Mexican guy said he would do brain surgery cheaper.

He is just looking for trouble. Read all of his posts and you will see he is trolling.

As Mencken said, "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel" What he meant by that is that when all arguments fail, fall back on Patriotism. To a "Patriot" nothing can be questioned if it means questioning the nationstate. All countries use Patriotism and "waving the bloody shirt" to get the masses to go along with national policy, right or wrong.

That is a lie. Much of the menial labour in America was done by blacks for decades and then, once they gained citizenship equality, did not want to do crappy low paying (but needed) work anymore. So we encouraged the Mexicans to sneak in and take the jobs. Now we want to throw them to the wolves.

The Transcontinental Railroad at its time the greatest construction project in the world, aside from the Great Wall in China was built by Irish and Chinese. Much of the western railroad infrastructure was built by Chinese. The skyscrapers in the East? Built by Mohawk Indians. And then finally, the Mexicans were already here when the Americans came west, and took Texas out of Mexico cause the backward Mexicans had outlawed human slavery and the Americans wanted to keep humans in bondage. The Americans kept coming, finally taking the nation to the Pacific Coast over the dead bodies of the Mexicans who tried and failed to preserve their country.

And while slamming us; what about what the Spaniards did to the indigenous peoples like the Aztec, etc?

BTW: I decided to unblock your posts for amusement

Dumb ol' Redneck here needs his cheap thrills.

America and Americans have always held America to be more morally virtuous than other nations, especially the darker skinned nations. America after all was "the city on the hill".

I merely point out that America and Americans are no more virtuous than any other bunch of sinners.

It is curious what the Spaniards did to the indigenous people, especially compared to what the English did to the indigenous people, after all, where did the Mestizos come from?

The Spanish not only enslaved the natives, they married them.
The English did not, they felt the indians were beneath them, they treated them as they treated the Irish.

American Hypocrisy is the one of the things about America the rest of the world is quite aware of, and is something Americans vociferously deny.

Frankly, I couldn't care less what the rest of the world thinks of the US. This isn't 'American Idol' and if we have to do things that make us 'unpopular' in order to prevent our country from deteriorating into a Third World hell hole, so be it. If given a choice, I would much rather be considered morally unvirtuous and have no illegal aliens to deal with.
