Americans only work 1,790 hours a year, even though the USA is the only developed country not to have the right to annual leave enshrined in law meaning that they work more days per year than other Western nations. (1)

Compare that to the sombrero and poncho-clad, tequila-slurping, hat-dancing Mexican layabouts south of the border who work 2,226 hours a year.

And what about those swarthy, plate-smashing, EU-bailout-grasping, work-shy Greeks? They work 2,034 hours a year.

Even the idle, pan-flute-playing, llama-beaters in Chile work 2,029 hours a year. (2)

It's time Americans spent less time slobbing about on the sofa scoffing McDonald's and guzzling Coke and more time out at work earning a living, don't you think?

Americans work hard enough. After all, we are the best country out there. Finally, WE ARE 'MURICA!

I am afraid my opponent is being complacent. Merely asserting "We are "Merica" is not enough to stop foreigners eating Americans" lunch.

Unless Americans buck their ideas up quickly I forecast it won't be long before hordes of Mexican savages swarm across the border into the United States and, as a result, American fruit-pickers, cleaners and truck drivers will lose their jobs en-masse to these cheap, hard-working Mexicans.

Unless something is done quickly there will be a Mexican restaurant in every major city, Mexican waiters will be eyeing-up the womenfolk and Mexican cartels will put traditional, all-American drug dealers out of business.

Americans need to act now before it's too late, they need to stop slacking and work harder!

Thank you.

It would be good if mexicans take our jobs because the Muricans wont need to work.

I think that jamonster is right. According to the U.S. 1694 survey of the population, 100 percent of the people believed that we are awesome...just like jamonster said (http://thumbs.dreamstime.com... + http://2bots1tot.files.wordpress.com...). Just saying, I found direct evidence from the Carpathia files of the Titanic. Listen . Here that, that is religous freedom .That is america. That is what jamonster is trying to say. Carpathia is the answer, not war, not peace, but Carpathia. That is the message we all should recieve from lunch, dinner, brunch, linner. We need to focus, be serious, and be americans! I mean, why are we even trying to make this point. That is the point of carpathia, for americans to work harder Of course americans need to work harder, I fully agree with brian eggel. I mean, how could someone with that great of a last name ever be wrong! I think that jamonster is a complete idiot. Why would a turtle like jamonster ever spend his days typing on a computer. Here is evidence
See what I mean!!!!! Carpathia is the answer for you, you silly breast feeding mouse! Here is more evidence http://i.pbase.com.... Isnt that amazing! That mouse is so mexican-american. This world is great isnt it, as Buddha once said http://www.dumpaday.com.... I am done, good night.
