Mow Your Own Lawn - Clean Your Own House! (Join Me)
Self ^ | 03-31-2006 | Self

Posted on 03/31/2006 9:08:13 AM PST by TexasCajun

I've had it!

I've watched Mexicans all over the Houston area and nationally waving Mexican flags.

I've seen Mexicans raise the Mexican flag at public schools.

I've seen Mexicans carrying signs stating "I'm Already Home!"

I've heard over and over again that Illegals are here because they will do jobs Americans will not.

I have had a Mexican lady cleaning my house twice a month and a Mexican lawn crew doing my lawn.

I make a check out to the Mexican lady by name and leave the lawn guys check blank.

I have never asked if they are illegal or asked them what their registered business name is for tax purposes.

Well! The time has come for me to mow my own lawn & clean my own house!

I cannot bitch about the Illegal problem and in good conscience keep hiring Mexicans I am almost certain are not in the US legally.

Mow Your Own Lawn - Clean Your Own House!

Now, should I buy lawn equipment from Sears, Home Depot or Lowes?

My landscaper is from El Salvador. Very legal and hard working man. His son helps him. Not everyone has the time to do so but I wouldn't hire illegals to help me. It's just not something I could do.

Sears. The other two are useless when it comes to this.

I pay a neighborhood kid to chase my lawnmower around and most other things I do for myself.

I was thinking about post "Lawn Job" on the neighborhood bulletin board and hire a kid from my neighborhood.

...but I really could use the exercise too. :)

Not just Mexicans. This "struggle" is being co-opted by the communists and other assorted leftist lunatics. Who do you think is organizing these marches and posting their websites? The illegal fixing the roof of the house didn't say, "Hey, May Day would be a great day to strike."

Hadn't occurred to me to do otherwise. Hiring a cleaner would probably get better results unfortunately.

I lived in San Diego near the Penaquitos 'squatters' camp and used to have illegals stop buy all the time when I was working on the yards saying 'Trabajo?'. I'd then point two houses over and tell them the guy two doors down works for INS. Then they would scamper.

I agree. I guess you really can't blame the illegals. It's more like the government, for letting them come here and not doing anything about it. And the companies for hiring them and giving them all the reason to come here more.

I can blame them for being arrogant ingrates, and telling me to shut up and sit down because they have a right to be here.

Amen, sister.

I wouldn't be so hateful toward illegals if they would say, "Please let us stay! We love America, and we want to be a part of it!". And say it in English, of course.

But all I hear is Spanish, telling us that we suck and they are going to stay here whether we like it or not. I really, really hate all illegals.

I have lots of immigrant friends from all over the world. And the fact that they worked so hard to get here and become legal, then to have Bush say he's all for just letting illegals break the law and reap the rewards, really infuriates me.

1. I'll get around to cleaning my apartment on Sunday, when I always do.

2. I'll be growing my own peppers and tomatoes too. :-)

Yep. Check this out. This is where I live.

Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. - Over the past 10 years, the number of federal cases statewide involving at least one person who is not a U.S. citizen has grown from 10 percent to 50 percent, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Not to mention all the welfare types.

I really want to deprive an illegal alien of a job but unfortunately, I do all the cooking, cleaning, and gardening myself while my husband handles the repair/renovation side of things.

I am going to stop eating Mexican food in restaurants but that's more because it's fattening and I'm bored with it.

We haven't had a housekeeper since I was a kid and she was a wonderful Black woman with 16 children. Guess who did the yardwork? ME!

Get a John Deere but they don't carry the better models at Home Depot.

I clean my own house and mow my own lawn.

I'm going to stop buying refried beans though.
Will that help?

Ummm....I had my sons do my lawn and help me clean the house...
When they went to college, I had the neighborhood kids help out.
But then, I lived in "normal" neighborhoods in Oklahoma where the work ethic was still alive, not in elite California suburbs where houses start at a quarter million dollars and up...

I'm a housewife, so that's basically my job description.(Though, my husband does help with the yard work).

I'd go with Home Depot for the lawn mower. That's where my husband picked ours up. Haven't had a problem with it.

Glad to see that people who do hire domestics are thinking about doing their own work though.

I would be proud to hire Michelle Marquez to clean my home. She's proud to be an American!
