Don't you know that illegals can earn $750,000 a year mowing lawns and emptying waste baskets? No wonder they are paying so much in taxes!

Most of these lawn services have no business license, so they pay no business taxes.

"NO ENGLISH....NO REPAIR!"

But for your target group, the question arises....if they have "no English", how do they read your sign?.....

Alas, I'm going to guess the keyboard is as far as you will go?
I help them in THEIR country, bitching on the computer is a total waste of time, and I feel that I do something concrete to make anothers life better.
