      If you look at the upper right corner in his post you will see he is from Guatemala.

        In my experience, of the illegal, undocumented workers that work for less than minimum wage, about 95% of them were American citizens.

        Why would Americans chose to be illegal workers? Several reasons.

        They don't want the money to count against their food stamps or welfare benefits.
        They don't want money taken out for child support.
        They don't want to pay taxes.
        They have active arrest warrants and don't want to be found by the authorities.

        Now if you want to talk about drugs and mayhem, methamphetamines and prescription drug abuse is as big as heroin and cocaine. And that meth is cooked up right here in the good ol US of A by American citizens with no teeth and sores all over their face. After all, they sell their crank for way cheaper than the stuff trafficked from Mexico.

        And depending what neighborhood you live in, you can't let people know that a family member has cancer because that would risk armed home-invasion robbery to steal their supply of OxyContin.

        But the portion of the US drug problem due to trafficking across the border with Mexico gets blamed on hard working people who snuck in here to try to feed their family. Nobody ever blames the American doctors and lawyers that spend big bucks to party with coke, do they?

        They would not smuggle it if we stopped buying the stuff. The US is the largest user of cocaine in the world. I know a thing or two about drugs after watching a few people very close to me throw their life away, attending a few funerals, and working firsthand on overdose after overdose in the back of an ambulance. And after putting my life on the line so many times on the front lines of the war on drugs, I am very offended when someone basically blames day laborers for this problem, as well as all the other problems we got ourselves into.

        80% of failures are from 20% of causes
        Never compromise your principles today in the name of furthering them in the future.

            General reply to some bad manners

            I live in the San Diego area, have plenty of "Mexican" friends and co-workers who have about the same goals I do, they work to provide for themselves and family. They worry about border violence and drug crimes just like I do. I might also point out the gentlemen who shared his project with us is from Guatemala not Mexico and last I heard they were a part of the Americas also.

            Miller is more of a international company started in the United States with head quarters here but with manufacturing and sales of their equipment world wide. The last Miller manual I saw was multi-language (even if it was French). That would hint that any language is welcome here as the products are used where English isn't used.

            Lighten up, the man is trying to share something we have in common.

            Let's see more....

                      Solopripro,
                      Lo siento por unos de nosotros. Ellos no tienen que leerlo si no les gusta. Por favor, bienvenidos, y llega mas fotos de tu trabajo.

                      Yo nunca visitaba a Guatamala, pero vivía en Colombia y México (cerca de la ciudad de México) en años pasados. La cultura de las paises americas centrales es muy interesante, y unos del mas mejor trabajo está allí.

                      Yo tambien, lo siento por mi español así ási. Es raro que practico estes días.

                        5. Stop being a isolationist it will only cost you money in the long run.
                        6. Please don't show your true colors here, Reserve that for Minute man meetings
                        7. Please take that racist crap outa here.

                              Ah asking someone whom doesn't even live here to speak the local language is a bit isolationist Something we in the US need to get over.

                              Item 6, keep your liberal attitude in check. Sorry to call a Spade a Spade
                              Not a liberal I'm a dyed in the wool gun carrying American that thinks a bunch of "Fill in the blank" guarding the border is about as usefull as hen crap on a pump handle. Regardless WHO ARE YOU to tell me to keep a point of view in check. I don't remember in the board rules that this was a Republican Conservative Right-wing Etc only board.

                              Item 7, don't see it, you probably would not know what a minute man meeting was if it hit you in the HEAD!
                              Nop Wrong I know what they are and have ZERO USE for being apart of the extreme right Just about Nazi groups that claim to be patriotic. Tolerance is a quality that is rare in these days. Hold On a second Obama's at the door and he want's my guns

                              Item 11, shall we say we disagree, I won't start calling ILLEGAL a form of GOVERMENT, just a law of the land! so we see eye to eye, Laws are a self imposed form of GOVERMENT, Kinda like laws we DO NOT ENFORCE!
                              ahhh.... you don't get it I work for a company that sends me to Mexico quite regularly. The people I work for in mexico are not illegal. Now yes the Government is screwed but it's not my country so I don't care.
                              Item 12, IT will just create more problems or issues that the common public has problems with, HAVE YOU A NEW DEAL CALLED MAHD, Mothers against DOPE Heads... Stick the Tax, it solves no problems when they cost more..
                              Not when you dump the budget for the DEA, cut it's work force by 75% and sell off all the equipment and gear. See you won't need DEA officers when that stuff is sold at walmart. And it will not create anymore problems then Alcohol has already created. In reality it may just thin the heard a bit. And the former officer will not be out of work due to the fact that local Law enforcement has been short handed for years they just need to relocate.

                              I didn't vote for Bush, Dukakis, Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Bush Jr, Or Obama So keep that in mind when you call some one a liberal

                                Your choice of words suggests a bias. The evidence indicates the OP came to the site to exchange knowledge. But maybe your agenda is better served by casting him as a freeloader.

                                Glad to see you're at least not hung up on making this an English only site.

                                As for your ideas about prohibition, it sure seems like they're not doing a very good job of teaching history in this country any more. Assuming of course that you're a native and not one of those ILLIGALs.
