Since when is losing the war of public opinion a bad thing? Public opinion voted for Bush a second time, [/quote]

Am I the only one severely offended by this title? Are there really people stupid enough to generalize that Mexicans are superior workers?

Anymore; I take little offence---------consider the source.

We are winning the war against illegal immigrants and their lackeys

Sure Americans have become lazy. There is much truth to that argument also.

When im on a major remodel job and the contractor tells me he charged the homeowner $200,000 and everyone I see working there is low skilled workers making perhaps minimum wage, I know the contractor is making a killing. He is getting rich while the wage earner crawls to the bank to cash his pittance of a pay check. The bank teller can read it in his eyes. He will walk home with a small fist full of cash and has no idea how he will make it stretch to the next one.

It is not fair but neither is life fair.
Intelligence rules and dumbness falters.
Get an education in a trade. Not some useless liberal arts crap.
When using "American" could you be more specific? Canadians as well as Argentinians are all Americans!!!! Oh and Mexicans are North Americans as are those from the USA or from Canada.

Sorry, but since its inception as a nation, "American" has been synonymous with citizen of the United States of America. At least in English, which last I checked is the language of the US and this forum.

Even people in Latin American call us "Americanos" and not "Estadounidense"!

Yes. La Raza is a Mexican race supremacy group that really does have it's followers believing that Mexicans are some superior race. Vicente Fox himself spoke in racist terms like this.

Something tells me they are a hand picked group of businessmen who hire illegals and want to find a way to send something positive out about them.

People are fed up with them being here and do not care if they are harder workers, the fact they are here illegally is the most important aspect.

And the irony that technically speaking, Fox would not qualify for membership due to he being 100% White, racially speaking----he has no indigenous heritage.

Argentinian refers to a citizen of Argentina, Mexican for SOB, Canadian (you catch my drift)......the word 'American' with no other qualifiers means a citizen of the USA only.
