Quite frankly what I call them is nothing to a lot of immigrants and green card holders call them. They are not nearly so nice. I am polite in comparison. I have picked some VERY inventive epithets from my immigrant friends during the course of our conversations. Wetback by far aint the meanest. I think I will go back to calling them wetbacks my self. Apparently its become an invective. I like it has more power now than when I was kid. I think I will bring out of the closet and take it for test run. Especially since you don't like me calling the vermin the polite correct term, aliens. Thank you for helping me make my mind up. I appreciate it.
    Well, as long as you use just here on the internet where you can by anonymous you may be okay.

    I grew up on a farm in the San Joaguin Valley. You are totally off base.

    The Department of Labor has reported that 53 percent of the 2.5 million farm workers in the United States are illegal immigrants, though growers and labor unions say as much as 70 percent of younger field hands are illegal.

    Yeah, and if they were here illegally you might have a small point. But they probably weren't and you most likely don't.

    You grew in the San Joaquin, whereabouts? I grew up and still live in Bakersfield. Actually outside a bit Greenfield. Well it was outside.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Yeah, I saw that transition happening. It's because we screwed up the migrant programs by allowing them to bring families with them and supporting those families with social services while they were here. Then we allowed them to stay - breaking the whole concept of "migrant" worker.

    Return to the concept of the true guest worker - here to do the work and then go home.

    That's what everybody calls it or other less nice things. I liked living here. Not so much anymore. The stupid is becoming too much for me to bear. I love my state, but I am tired of fighting these twits.
