Too bad I wasn't living at the time of the Alamo and part of the few patriots who held the Alamo until death. I would have died happy knowing we held them off the best we could. Now we are over run with lazy leeches, which Davy Crockett and all knew would happen. Well, heroes you did your best. Thanks.

dying a bloody death would have done a lot of good.

Instead of weird fantasies, how about dealing with you hatred and prejudice - you'll be a better person for it.

Watch the 1960s documentary "Harvest of Shame" some time. The workers shown looked like "Okies" right out of a Steinbeck novel. Any producer looking to make an updated version these days would be hard pressed to find any Anglo field workers, unless they hired the farm workers out of the actor's union.

Of course growers want Mexican labor, legal or otherwise. Low wages, no benefits, and easy to fire (read: call the INS and tell them there's a few more illegals ready to be deported at such and such location). What a great deal for the growers, what a [email protected] deal for U. S. workers, just as in the days of "Harvest of Shame."
