    Seriously, I'm dying to leave California. It's all I know, but I don't feel like I belong here. The only thing is, I'm afraid of tornadoes (never seen one) and bad weather (lots of snow - not familiar with it) or humidity, which I hear is awful. Weather-wise, this is paradise, but the people can make it a living hell. Quite frankly, I'm tired of the rude illegal immigrants - and the legal ones - who are turning this once-fine state into a third world country. Boy, I could g on...I'm getting bitter the older I get...

    Michigan... Must get cold, eh? I bet the people are really nice. Man, I gotta get outta here...
  8. Don't feel special, this part of NC is flooded with illegals:mad::mad:

    NC (your part, anyway) is flooded with illegals, too?? That's so sad!!!!!
  11. Man, you can have them back, we don't want them:p:p

    Yep. Has been for the past few years. There's a local company that makes fire extinguishers where at least 80% of the workforce is composed of illegals. The really bad part is that this place has a DoD contract!! I worked there for about 10 months. Generally 55-60 hours per week but the pay was so low that I still couldn't keep all my bills paid. But the illegals got paid more right off the bat. They got regular raises too while I couldn't even get one raise that was promised me when I started. The illegals would mess up equipment, and it was ok. An American messed up equipment and they got written up on the spot. An american sends a friend there looking for a job, most of them get turned away. An illegal has a couple three of his buddies show up one morning and they're working before lunchtime. This isn't the only place around here like that either. A few months ago a local company got busted by ICE for hiring illegals. The company in question makes parachutes for DoD.

    What makes it so bad, there was a local Chinese buffet. It was a really great place to eat. Best one around. Always had really high scores on health inspections too. Well ,they started hiring illegals to work in the kitchen. Their health scores took a nosedive and the quality of the food dropped. The place is now shut down. I notice that any restaraunt that employs illegals generally has low health inspection scores.

    They clog up the roads with their no driving butts, they clog up the ERs when they get the sniffles, they are always at the welfare office getting free handouts. They push and cut in line. The local flea markets are choked with them. They always talk too loud because they assume noone can understand them. When you say somethign to them they pull the "no habla" crap. When you get behind one at the grocery store, you see them with two ro three heaped up carts of food and they always whip out either a food stamp card or a wad of $100s to pay for it.

    Wow, talk about thread drift:p:D

    BCJ, I feel your pain!!! heck, I don't even know where to start. I have to go offline, but I may be back tomorrow to continue. But you mentioned ERs being crowded by illegals with the sniffles. We had a hospital shut down because it went broke giving the illegals free health care. Now, the other hospitals have to deal with the extra burden. When my parents were still alive and needing hospital care, there were times when they'd have to be kept in ICU for a while because all the beds were full.
