It only seems like everything is our fault because we meddle in the affairs of everyone so much. What, do you think they spend $15bil/year on relief aid?

Well if a YouTube video says Trump is right then it must be true. Fun fact, more Mexicans are leaving the US then entering.
The builders get into the business to make money. There's risk involved. They could lose, if the housing market declines before they finish the homes. They pad their pockets in the good times, so they can survive the hit in the bad times. They have different realities to face.
A most essential skill. Someone has to mix the cement, and unpack the building blocks, and place the stones, and fetch and carry, and carry and fetch. All workers can't supervise. Most of the building is physically demanding labor.
Have you seen what a real craftsman charges for his time these days? Can you buy such a house yourself? Not everyone can afford to live in the millionaire's lane. Some houses use only the best craftsmen, but then they sell the home to people like Donald Trump. The rest of use have to buy something within a more moderate budget.
You seem to be quite a well qualified craftsman. So, I ask you, if a house was built only with people of your level of skill, charging your rates, could you afford to buy that house when it was finnished?

I seem to recall this:
Doesn't really say give me your most affluent, best dressed, and best educated white folks, while leaving the oppressed and poor in their home land.

This is exactly why im going from flooring installer to CNC.
My dad has been bidding exactly the same for the last 25 years.
Hmmmm....I was just looking through my copy of The Constitution Of The United States Of America...can't find that anywhere. I did a cross reference check with that statement and words of the Founding Fathers...my search turned up nothing in those regards. I searched here...uscode.house.gov...
Couldn't find it there either. Then it dawned on my...it's an idealist poem written by a Zionist.Carry on
Q: What does that quotation have anything to do with her being Jewish? A: Nothing.
The truth is that the Jewish faith and Zionism are two very different philosophies. They are as opposite as day and night. The Jewish people have existed for thousands of years. In their two thousand years of Divinely decreed exile no Jew ever sought to end this exile and establish independent political sovereignty anywhere. The people's sole purpose was the study and fulfillment of the Divine commandments of the Torah. The Zionist movement created the Israeli state. The latter is a persuasion less than one hundred years old. Its essential goal was and is to change the nature of the Jewish people from that of a religious entity to a political movement. From Zionism's inception the spiritual leaders of the Jewish people stood in staunch opposition to it.

More poppycock. People have ALWAYS been willing to do these jobs right here in the USA. Just not for slave wages with no protections. You know who used to do these jobs in the 80s and 90s? A whole lot of ex cons and people convicted of felonies and serious misdemeanors. Want to know why the recidivism rate keeps climbing? Try looking here first. I know that a good deal of denial to felons is due to insurance companies. In many states it is perfectly legal for an insurance company to jack up the premiums of any business that employs felons...NO MATTER HOW LONG AGO THE CRIME WAS COMMITTED ...[snip]...
I honestly have no idea how Americans can deny this or defend it.
