Your post reaks of stereotypes and bigotry of both latinos and "americans".

Yes, it's my mistake I think. I'm sure we were taught that in school, though. We might have been, it was a while ago.

Ahhh but "The American Way" is focused on the individual and their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

True, but perhaps the family values way back then were more similar to the Latino way then the "American" way now? I wouldn't know. None of us lived back then.

I think there was more comraderie in my grandmothers generation then in my fathers generation and my grandmothers generation caught in ww2.

That's what I see in my own microcosm.

I am glad to see you denying ignorance!
I don't agree that Americans are lazy, our history has shown that we are very industrious. Unfortunately, many have been consumed by materialistic values, consumerism, and technology that newer generations often do not understand the values that are cultural valuable.

The difference does occur within one simple generation. Makes no difference where the child's ancestor arrived from, Asian, Indian, Mexican, etc. The ones I have met become frustrated with their older generations family values. They want their independence!

Certainly not completely bad to have freedom and independence, but so many become isolated eventually in their materially technological world...it becomes depressing. I have no answers, just believe that time and hardships do have a benefit of forcing individuals to find the true benefit of family values...even here in America.

As an American, I don't take insult of others thinking I am lazy. I simply seem that way based on their knowledge and experiences of my culture vs their current culture. The melting pot here in America is hot...it will always meld another into the mix. Is this a good thing? Perhaps ... Yet many as they mature and age seem to long for the good ol'days and wish they spent more time focused on valuing their families!

Except America was about leaving the old world to lead a new life. They are stealing resources from America to send back
home and feel more connected to their old world and want to recreate it here.

I don't know how you find that American.

How is it pointless when we are trying to enlighten someone who doesn't know basic geography? Would you rather the world just turn into the Idiocracy movie?

Oh by the way here is your map you requested us to look at.

Oh please! Illegal aliens are not Americans because there is ZERO legal recourse. An Illegal can run over you and put You in the hospital but if they have no ID or insurance You are screwed. The worst part is the damn cops let them go because there is NO way of identifying these people and the names they give are most likely false. Now if You switch shoes and You hurt an Illegal they can sue You for EVERYTHING and our courts will ALWAYS side with them. So until they are treated equally under the law I say round them up and ship them back. Now if they really wanted to come here to be RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS then who am I to tell them that they can't better themselves or the lives of their children. I believe everyone should be able to better themselves just not at My expense.

Is this a deliberate attempt to derail the thread?

Has ATS become home of the shills now?

Please stop advertising ATS.

The only ignorance in this thread right now is a pointless discussion about what countries are located where.

You are idiocracy diplomats.
