I love work because when I get the chance do it I get paid. Unfortunately I don't get the chance to do it as often as I'd like. Any one bothering to read this already knows why.

When I do get the chance to work. I usually have to do it for the same rates as the guy in the '70s got. Not good in the new century. Anyone that has read any of my previous posts knows why.

I compete for work every day. I compete with people whos presence in this country, as defined by law, is illegal. Naturalized citizens from all over the world compete along side me. We find it frustrating and extremely difficult to compete with people that are allowed to break employment, tax and wage laws with inpunity.

We cannot compete with a group of people with the ability to charge 30-40 percent less because they don't pay taxes or provide workers comp insurance for employees.

We also cannot have share an opinion on the matter because our government and countrymen simply don't care.

As I have stated before, I welcome anyone to legally come to this country and chase the American dream of independence and the chance to prosper. The problem lies within the term legal. The vast majority of skiled and unskilled laborers coming to this country are doing it illegaly. They have the priveledge of not having to pay taxes. They have the priveledge of having American citizens defend theses actions in open forums of discussion.

I am disgusted with the attitude of Americans that are willing to shut up and shut others up for openly disagreeing with flagrant violations of our laws.

I am disgusted with the with being called a racist, told that I'm lazy and having my opinions tossed aside like tabloid headlines. I work like two borrowed mules and harbor no ill will towards anyone doing the same, legally.

I am disgusted with people that prefer to ignore a problem until it shows up on the doorstep. It will be on your doorstep soon enough my friends, and in your wallets.

I'm disgusted with the people that slander me in the name of political correctness. Attempting to make me seem like a bad guy for stating facts is wrong and you know it.

I'm just plain disgusted and I will no longer be a part of this.

Thanks to everyone that helped me. Thanks to everyone here in general. This site is an invaluable resource for hotrodders.

However, I do feel strongly enough about the last two discussions being swept under the table to take leave of this place. I have my life and livelyhood to worry about. Fighting against illegal aliens for the means to support myself is my priority at the moment. It's not looking very good either.

I don't care for the company of those that would give immunity to lawbreaking illegal immigrants for the sake of making themselves feel good. I don't care for the company of those that would belittle me in the defence of people that have not earned the right to be here

Wow, is this site going to crap lately, or what?

And any mod that is threatening members in PMs needs to get yelled at by Jon like I did...even though all of my actions were in defense of myself and never trying to shut up someone with a different opinion.

E.T said it best............Beeeeee Goooooood.I am sure there are some angry white man forums out there where everyone can post at.The illegal immigrants may be a sore spot for alot of people.Personally my sore spot is for people here legally who do not work and feel that I owe them a paycheck,regardless of race,ethnicity or whatever.Here if a cop shoots a known drug dealer who has threatend said officers life,by pulling a weapon with the intent to kill.The cop is put on trial for murder.The useless thugs and drugaddicts who can not obey the law are alot worse than those who cross over and send their non-taxed wages home than those who refuse to work,sell crack to kids,do not pay taxes plus get a Government check and free housing with MY tax dollars.There is a lot to be pissed about,you just have to look at the less of the two evils man.Take care bud.
