Yeap, legal IS "simply the decision of a particular group"... but it's LEGISLATORS, not bureaucrats, that make that decision. And legislators love staying in power over allegiance to any particular donor or cause.

Lol, do you and your ilk all read the same garbage? Bringing up the "know nothings" is now quite in vogue.

The only thing I'm looking forward to becoming "relics of the 19th and 20th centuries" are useless Western fruit farms once they can no longer hire slave labor and are fined out of business.

Some times people show what they don't know by what they say. I see the term slave labor used in regard to labor. You don't understand apparently that somewhere over half the work crews in the fields are US citizens, and most assuredly do not work for slave wages. This statement does not reflect well upon your reasoning skils

Of course if your think your food comes from stores, like many city people do, I can understand why you would post that.

Impossible. Americans simply don't show up to do field work.

And you're going to start having to think outside the field labor box. I know working on a farm can bring an insular perspective, where you start thinking the world operates like a farm, but it's not JUST about "farm labor."

I'd prefer my food come from overseas if necessary. At least then when the landowners are exploiting third world workers for personal gain, they do it on their own soil.

We have a problem, I stated about half the field workers are American Citizens. That is a fact,

You return with a statement, "Impossible. Americans simply don't show up to do field work."

In other words, you called me a liar.
