Not being an expert in the construction market, I'll tell you what I would of done and what they probably did. Bought a big mansion in the hills, got a beautiful blonde, and live off my investments.

You asked me what they did with their money. If I any large amounts of money that's what I would of done. Do I think that using illegal labor as means to get the edge on your competition right? No way, that's immoral and against the law.

It works better if you wait a few weeks before sounding exactly like one of the last ones.
Yep, you nailed it!

I guess we're supposed to be stupid.

Most likely the same thing that happened to the money the farmers 'saved' by hiring illegals. Our food prices certainly don't reflect a savings for the consumer. Have you noticed a decrease in the cost of a hotel room? What about the cost of plants or mulch from landscaping and nursery businesses? Have you purchased flowers lately? As a matter of fact, what have consumers gained in any industry dominated by illegals? I haven't noticed a decrease in the cost of anything.

the point to my original post was an attempt to attract input from the pro-illegal usual suspects on this site about how illegal aliens ARE in fact competing for their jobs, but they still support them. hmmmmm all is quiet on their homefront.

you'll have to excuse me while i tentitively gloat here for hitting the nail on the head with the original post.

btw is this what they call "trolling"? if so, i happily accept the label......for now
