Much easier to do when you're NOT paying tax.

Default Ignorant Fools

Oh my goodness - I have never heard such ignorant, hate-filled messages. This individual worked for years, living in sub-standard conditions to save this money. I am a CPA and I'll happily tell you that if he had declared the huge sum of money he earned each year working at less than minimum wage as a dishwasher, we - U.S. taxpayers - would owe him money based on the Earned Income Credit rules. His employer should have deducted social security and medicare tax only. And as for the idiot who thinks this guy stole this wonderful dishwashing job from an American - give me a huge whopping break. Where are you finding this American who can exist or is willing to exist at or below the poverty level. These "Americans" would "earn" more money on public assistance than working at this job. Unfortunately (or fortunately as the case may be) for the United States, the illegal immigrants fill the positions that legal citizens don't want and won't take. On top of all this, where is the human compassion. This guy didn't steal the money - he earned it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
