Making racial jabs of Latino's having ten to a family in past forums, and now bringing your extended family in the picture, is too funny.

I get it. You all feel cheated and robbed. You don't have
health insurance for some reason... and feel the illegals
are getting the better deal because they get to do
fruit picking etc for less than minimum wage. You're right..
I have nothing in common with y'all. I guess I don't understand
as an American in the land of opportunities, why you citizens
don't have health insurance... but even if you got the strawberry
picking jobs or whatever, unless you too want to shack up with
10 other families you still won't have enough for insurance.

try doing that with 4 kids? No insurance and your kids get sick or injured? Do you have kids? I did everything you did, had it worse, slept in my car for 4 months which didnt run, no money for gas, didnt have a cell phone, never asked for anything nor did I expect it. And I worked two jobs. I made it on my own.

Why don't you get off your soap box and go help them, since you feel so bad for them, since they're so poor. How about you just donate your income checks to them. Wouldn't that be so kind of you.
Hey, I do help them.. and so do you. Everytime you eat a strawberry

Well health insurance here for a family of five is 1000.00 a month. You wanna pay that for me. Our employers dont offer it. What is it with you and picking fruit? they dont all pick fruit ya know.

Nea, I'm terribly confused. You stated before on your profile you were an exterior designer, and you stated your husband was a construction contractor. The last time I check that's two incomes. Those don't pay poorly.

HURRICANE KATRINA: Aid offers from around the world
Independent, The (London), Sep 6, 2005
AUSTRALIA $10m, mostly to US Red Cross
CHINA $5m
JAPAN $200,000 to the US Red Cross
SINGAPORE Three Chinook helicopters
THAILAND Sent 100 doctors and nurses
SOUTH KOREA $30m plus 50 rescue workers
BANGLADESH $1m
SRI LANKA $25,000 to US Red Cross.
KUWAIT $500m worth of oil products
QATAR Pledged $100m
BAHRAIN Pledged $5m
CANADA Four ships loaded with relief supplies and 1,000 personnel
RUSSIA Three planes with emergency gear
ROMANIA Medical staff
CUBA Fidel Castro offered 1,100 doctors with 26 tons of medicine
VENEZUELA President Hugo Chavez, a vocal critic of the US, has offered cheap fuel, humanitarian aid and relief workers
MEXICO Fifteen truckloads of supplies and two ships, two helicopters and 15 amphibious vehicles
BRITAIN Sending 500,000 military ration packs, medical experts and engineers
The U.S. government, by itself spent more on the Tsunami relief in 2004, than the 18 countries you listed spent for Katrina.

U.S Govt - 841 million
Private US donations - 1.8 Billion

So I hardly believe that we have an "America First" attitude towards the WORLD when it come to international disasters.
