Maybe Canada should look to the USA as an example. They have given permanent residency or citizenship to more people then anyone in the world. The other problem is that when it is time to go back to Mexico the ACLU and others come fighting to keep them here despite any agreement. Does Canada not want to make a lot of people from Mexico citizens? The USA has everyone beat when it comes to legal immigration. Allowing more legal immigrants then the largest countries in the world combined. The USA is the leader!

So does the USA, because they have allowed in more then Canada can even imagine. Also converted more people to citizens then Canada will even come close to in your lifetime or mine. Why are you so down on the USA that has allowed more people to become citizens then any country in the world? Why do you not think that people should do things legally? Do you not agree that the USA is the leader Juan? Do you also not agree that they have been the softest on illegal immigrants then any country in the world?

Show me some others that have done more then the USA, and especially for Mexicans in recent times.

Good bye and good don't let the door smack ya in the butt. Wait until two or three million uneducated slaves start destroying Canada, and you will think long and hard about your choice. I only wish all Mexicans would keep moving North, the French will really get a bang out of the crap but the only problem is Canada won't allow any of them to become naturalized Canadians, as they refuse Birthright citizenship, and refuse free healthcare for illegals... So keep going North Pleeezzzeee.

We need them to clean our pools, rake our leaves and mow our lawns.

Americans need to exercise, they can do these things themselves, or have their teenagers earn some pin money, while learning a work ethic.

Mexico and the USA are right in their for the two most obese countries in the world for 2012. USA is number 1 and Mexico is Number 2. Neither has much room for bragging rights as far as being fit.

Same here in Mexico as far as working. But in Mexico most of the people do not have yards. They just leave them as dirt and weeds. Whole subdivisions. Also yards are insignificant here. They are beyond small compared to the smallest yards in the USA. The house literally have no side yards as the houses are built up against each other. You can hear the people walking in the house next to you. My neighbors front yard has a patch of grass that is literally 10 x 10 feet.

The people with money here have yards, but still very small and also hire gardeners and people to cut their lawns and trim their trees. People do not have lawnmowers here to cut their lawns. In my neighborhood their are 3 men who cut the lawns and do the landscaping in the whole area. You should come and walk through El Centro here in Chihuahua with me some day. The obesity is very evident.

I had them cut my lawn in the neighborhood because I was too busy working. Also cost effectively I made more money per hour then I could mowing my lawn. Women love to tend to their gardens in the USA. But not mow the lawn.

Here in Chihuahua because of the shortage of water I have gone to natural landscaping with native cactus and rocks. Looks great and less maintenance.

Cleaning pools, raking leaves and mowing lawns is really not work. Lawn mowers just move on there own and you just have to guide them. I would rather pay someone so I can go out and enjoy my time with my family, or spend more time making real money. Same in here in Mexico or in the USA. If you can afford to have anything done that costs less then you make per hour or month, then you have more time to make real money or enjoy the down time in between work hours.

Children need to learn the value of doing a job well, and learning how to manage the money they make from doing those jobs. It would appear that many Mexicans as well as Americans have no clue how to be personally responsible for themselves and their families. It starts simple and it starts in the home.

If you are over fifty years old you have memories of working job's here from an early age. My first job I was 11 or 12 years old. We didn't need Mexicans to come here and do the work we did. I managed a fast food restaurant when I was 16 years old. All high school kids had job's mowing lawns, fast food and construction helpers in the summer. This new generation of young people cannot even find those job's as they are done by adult Mexican labor force. It's a tragedy that the US has allowed this to happen. My kids and their friends have college but still struggle to find decent work. Even educated workers can't find good job's and we shouldn't allow one more illegal alien to get job's before we employ American workers. It's a travesty.

Probably the main thing to teach children when they are young is eating the right foods. You can still work and look fit but still have serious heart problems when you are older. I have friends that have heart problems that are thin and seem to be fine. I have a friend in Tijuana that looks as fit as can be, but he has heart problems. Plaque does not care if you are thin or fat. It can block your arteries and drop you in your tracks as fast as anything. I was running 10 miles a day. 5 in the morning and 5 at night. Was competing in body building competitions at age 55. Ate perfect food. Had a 33 inch waist and felt like I was invincible. Like a loaded spring.

I have had 3 heart attacks and one 2 months after competing and placing in competition. I was in shock and became depressed because after all that I did I felt let down. I thought I had done everything right.

I found out that it did not matter what I did. I could not reverse the plaque that was built up from all the things I ate when I was young. So I have had to change my life style, and I cannot run anymore or get my body to the point where I can compete again.

If only I had learned to eat the right things when I was younger. I was actually in good shape when I was younger because I was active. But it is the food that was the problem. It is very hard in Mexico because all the food is to die for. Not meant to be a pun, LOL. Heart attacks and heart problems like in the USA lead the pack. I think Mexico is #1 in heart disease because of the foods they eat here. The USA lags in at #2 I believe. Not very good things to be rated #1 and number #2 at.

Exercise and good diet starting at an early age is the key.

Way off topic, but it seems on these forums everything goes in different directions.

Eating properly IS important, but I think we owe it to our kids to teach them more than to worry about their diet. If they don't know how to earn an honest living, they can't afford to buy the foods that are better for them, because as you must know, a healthy eating style costs more.
