Anyone who doesn't think illegals aliens are not slaves is an idiot.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Ah, but to the Bush administration, illegal aliens are a Godsend. They swab out our jons, they trim our hedges, they manicure our lawns. And so CHEAP! Not to mention harvest our crops. So, let the borders be free!

Forgetting, of course, that the 9/11 hijackers crossed our porous borders, and future terrorists could just as easily access our country from Mexico.

RE: America's Fall in R&D: "Nobody Cares"

The generation coming up is the me generation. My time, my money, my life, and screw everyone else. Today's kids for the most part, have no notion of how far we have come. Heck, just in my lifetime, color TV, cable TV, cordless home phone, Car phone to cell phones, video games, microwave ovens (remember boiling hot dogs for a quick snack?), PC, internet, data storage, digital camcorders and camera's. Most of this happened since I was in Jr high. My children are going to be tought throughly the value of this they will have access to in the future. From what I have seen, kids today have no respect for history or themselves. It is a sad state of affairs. Unless, things really change and I truely believe the American spirit can accomplish anything. Time is slipping by into the future.....

You left out the part where you walked to and from school in the snow uphill both ways.

Any nitwit who knows the definition of slavery but misuses it for low-minded political purposes if a fucking fool.

But I repeat myself.

Naw, I had a brand new Mustang GT but I apprecaited my car. My dad and I worked on a 66 coupe, and a 76 Grand Prix before then. Still I didn't appricate it enough. I don't have any intentsion of buying my children new cars when they are in high school. Well, that is if there is anything left on the road. We may all be driving biodiesels by then.......

Well, just look at this you may have your answer.

....... but I am sure that the US will still excel at creating fast food innovations as the majority of the citizenry will be in that business.
You really have contempt for us US.
