    The more you say such things, the more you insult my ancestors.

    I come from a long line of farming & ranching people on my dad’s side of the family… and I’m probably whiter than you are.

    Once upon a time, if you weren’t in a skilled trade or working for Uncle Sam, odds were that you were a farmer or rancher.

    In fact, a significant factor in why family size was so large up until the 1900s was because if you were a farmer or rancher there was an economic advantage: your kids could help you and your wife tend the homestead, removing the need to hire additional labor.

    The issue with the use of illegal immigrants as farm & ranch labor stems in part from the nation increasingly moving away from agriculture and even manufacturing and towards service as the main economic activity.

    And before you say anything, my folks have fruit trees on their property. I frequently help harvest said fruit whenever it comes in. It may be a far cry from what my ancestors used to do, but at least I understand where the food supply comes from.
