Oh, you're talking about implied social contracts in society, aren't you? Those aren't rights, either. They're societal rules. Our society hasn't yet set those into stone, and they're not much closer with this healthcare (I mean "forced health insurance") bill. this isn't a gov't rounding up doctors and nurses under its wing and taking care of its people. It's a contract between gov't and the insurance companies where the gov't forces its people to make the insurance companies rich. Some might get care, too, occasionally. Look into it more deeply before climbing way up there on your moral high horse, sir. This is no white knight saving the poor peasant from the mean robbers. In this case, the knights are running a Mob protection racket and the little guy is about to get reamed even worse than he has been.

Remind me what country you're from again, Uppy? Perhaps you just don't understand our ways here. The only greed and self-centeredness is in the gov't _itself_. Our CONgress voted itself TWO raises during our current meltdown and recession. What do you call that?

It isn't prejudice, it's economics... 28 million (the last number I heard) un employed Americans would then fill many of the vacancies they leave behind. (Yeah, I know they'll do most any job, and some claim they do the jobs whites won't do... but when times get hard and work scarce the whites (and black, brown or yellow that are here LEGALLY will do what ever they have to to eat!) In fact our economy is largely based on their working for wages we wouldn't tolerate... seems almost like slave labor (NOW you can break out the white sheets.) <snip>

Will unemployed Americans take those jobs or will they just go unfilled or cease to exist?

Bigots would want the immigration laws changed to ban immigration based on race, or, would want one race to have easier access to the US than another. Keeping unauthorized persons out of your house by force is hardly bigoted.
I'd bet money the so called "bigots" would have no problem doing the exact same thing at northern border.

time, those words meant something. As liberals attempted to find new ways of insulting people;the meaning changed to "someone who admits to recognizing someone's race". The meaning has now degenerated to being a common expletive with no connection to the original menage. In this thread, Lew has used it in that way twice.

A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices.
The correct use of the term requires the elements of obstinacy, irrationality, and animosity toward those of differing devotion.

Seems to cover it.

Lew, if you stretch your (tiny, liberal, one-track) mind a wee bit, you see some of the bigger picture. Quickly, when is the last time you asked a person who was out of work if he wanted that illegal alien's job, hmm? The old standard "Americans won't take that job." is out of date.
Go ask and get back to us, will ya? Those I've talked with say "I may not stay there, but I'll take the job today, RIGHT NOW, and stay there as long as I can possibly bear it. Yeah! Where do I sign up?"

And yet somehow Chuck Yeager and thousands of other downed airmen managed to walk out of occupied Europe. Their "razor wire backed by an electric fence" wasn't even effective in keeping people inside a prison.

My point is that the Gestapo's razor wire could not keep people in a little tiny prison, let alone a whole country, hence the notion that "razor wire backed by an electric fence" will keep Mexicans out of the US is wishful thinking.
