You name it. Americans make a harvester for it. Machines to plant, machines to cultivate and machines to harvest. All made in America by Americans.
By 2030 the minority will be the majority. Probably Latinos own big farmland that time so there will no problem with farmworkers. Latinos are hardworking people.

Latinos are hardworking people! Oh, and Latinos already own big farmland. Big cattle ranches too. By 2030, the grandchildren of today's undocumented immigrants will not be able to speak Spanish. They will have college educations and will refuse to work for minimum wage. They will want their own house and not want to allow 20 other people to live in it with them. Oh, and they will be too proud to beg for public assistance like the decedents of European migrants are today.

Being Latino doesn't mean undocumented. Most of the Latinos and Hispanics that I know are not only citizens, but they are military veterans as well.

Mexicans like to stand in the garage drinking beer and when they got to pee they go out back and pee on the fence behind the garage. The next evening they like to meet at the garage and drink beer and eat the pepinos that they pick off the plants growing on the fence behind the garage. They don't even peel the cucumbers either. They just pick it off the plant they pissed on in the dark the night before and stick that pepino into their mouths and chomp away on that pre salted cucumber. jejeje

The best weed is grown indoors in the USA and is harvested by white men with big brains and clean hands. Sure, you will pay a lot more ...but it's well worth the price.
Weed coming up from south of the border is grown in huge clearings by dirty Mexicans who urinate and defecate on the plants. When they harvest the plants with their stinking sweaty bodies they just smash them up sticks, seeds and all into a hard brick of choke and puke that stinks worst than the clothes they wear and isn't worth smoking. Sure, it's cheap ... but you get what you pay for.
Made by American's who take pride in what they do still means something to those of us who appreciate quality.
you are totally wrong my friend but good bless you

Mexican's sisters and cousins get pregnant before their fifteenth birthday so somebody is f&* k them. Believe me I know a lot of undocumented migrant workers and they don't have the skills to write broken English on a public forum in cyberspace. Oh, and would someone tell the Mexican people that PENDEJO is the Spanish word for pubic hair? Learn to speak a language properly. Spanglish gutter mouth isn't a recognized language by any nation or institution.

Good morning friends!:)

Mexican-american

Mexican Americans don't like to just get into gang fights,
they like flowers and music and white girls named Debbie too.

Mexican Americans are named Chata and Chella and chemma
and have a son in law named jeff.

Mexican Americans don't like to get up early in the morning
but they have to so they do it real slow.

Mexican Americans love education so they go to night school
and take spanish and get a B.

Mexican Americans love their Nana's and their Nono's and their
Nina's and their Nino's........ Nano Nano Nina Nono!

Mexican Americans don't like to go to the movies where the
dude has to wear contact lenses to make his blue eyes brown
cause don't it make my brown eyes blue.....

"And thats all i got, how do ya like it?"

*phone rings*
Mexican Americans like to answer telephone calls and say hello
to whoever's on the other end
