The next generation is more anchor babies than we realize. You can't outsource homebuilding, but they are insourcing illegals. The construction industry has over 10% unemployment I think. any construction sites I see are usually going mostly Latino. Since a lot of them come from countries where there is no opportunity, maybe that's why they work so hard. I've seen 'em work with long pants and long sleeve shirts in the broiling hot sun, all day. I only have work because my competitors that hire illegals want to make more profit, not lower prices. And I have a few customers that prefer an American worker.
I've worked with illegals when I was working for somebody else. We were painting in an executive's house, and the kid working with us probably came in under the fence from Mexico, from a place where he recieved no basic education, couldn't speak english. I walked in the huge designer kitchen, the kid was sitting in the sink to paint the window sill! A lot of jobs require bi-lingual personnel now. The local hardware store does a big paint sales business, they have a latino paint counter guy now. He's a nice guy, but in the morning when all the crews come in, all you hear is Spanish in that store. How tolerant do we Americans have to be? To the point of complete displacement?
Libs will call me a racist and shun me with great self-righteous delight. They all live in white neighborhoods. Their mantra is tolerance and diversity, they don't realize that racism is a two way street. I'm more of a culturalist
, that has gone the way of the dodo.
I weed-whacked the corner of the wooded lot the church owns yesterday, the grass and weeds were so high you couldn't see around the corner to make a turn. A guy came walking by talking on a cell phone. I'm a naive and friendly guy in stodgy NJ, the guy had a middle eastern accent and acted like I was interrogating him when I asked if he was from around here. He said, "I am from this development". I felt like saying, "I am from this town, this state, this country."
