He didn't mean eveyone is American, but the all American look is not what it use to be.
But our basic culture remains intact. English language,etc. We never did all look alike anyway. This is nothing new.

I often wonder how this country became so powerful and prosperous with so many lazy worthless citizens. You pro-illegals kill me. You act as though we were living in a vast wasteland before we were blessed with the hardworking illegals. If illegal aliens are so great, why the hell are they fleeing their counties to come here? Why don’t they use some of that hard work and ingenuity to improve their own damn countries? Please.

You donít say. I certainly hope it isnít 1950. Otherwise, I wouldnít be on the internet. Heck, I wouldnít even be born. But thanks for that tidbit. Who knew?

Why did the Europeans live Europe and didn't fix things there?? Please....
You are the one who berated U.S. citizens and called us lazy. Or, have you forgotten that quickly. Go back and re-read your post in which you praised illegals, and said Americans just want to sit around and eat and watch TV.

The Europeans didn't come here to take, they came here to give to this country. BIG difference.

Because it is too damn easy for illegals to live here in the USA-----------if it was made to be hell for them, most of 'em would remain put and build up their own nations.

Making up things again Benicar? First of all, I am not pro-illegal. Please don't make assumptions with individuals on this board as you do with groups of people.

Umm...he wasn't making generalizations. He was being somewhat poetic. Trying to "paint a picture" if you will, of what an unemployed person is like. See, no generalizations about broad groups of people were made.

That's REALLY simplistic. In fact so simplistic that it doesn't take into account, well, anything of substance and value.
