Cut off welfare for able bodied Americans and you’ll find plenty.

“Root, pig. Or Die” - From a story Abraham Lincoln told when asked by a Southern leader what the white population of the South would do without their slave labor.

I find gardening to be relaxing and therapeutic. Yes, I work up a sweat and, yes, it is inconvenient at times. But other than raising kids, I can’t think of anything else which gives you an opportunity to work with God and help create something beautiful.

I do all of my own gardening and lawn care.

No one can take more pride in my lawn than me, and I work for free.

Do it yourself. Pay yourself six bucks an hour. Save it up. Before too long you’ll be able to treat yourself to something nice. Plus, you’ll get the exercise, the fresh air, and fresh veggies for the table to boot.

It’s a win-win all the way around. And you’ll be able to look yourself in the mirror and realize you’re not aiding and abetting the destruction of your own country just for the sake of a little personal convenience.

I’ve had white 40 year old guys with sock tans and corporate haircuts placing flyers in my mailbox to mow the lawn, mulch, clean gutters etc. Unemployment is high. Hire a hard working ex IT guy and help him and his family out.

I’m guessing that if those kids wanted to be doing that, they already would.

Well said.

Gardening is the hands down favorite hobby of retirees across all lines of education, income and any other metric.

During the Vietnam War many a miscreant teen was given a choice by a judge, Army or jail?

Maybe we can now give them the choice, landscaping or jail? It certainly would keep many off the street and bring a reduction in crime.

We could also have it be a punishment for bullying and bullying in the schools would stop overnight.

True. Where I grew up and in that time, there were no Mexicans. Poor people did the field work and the high school kids.We were glad for the money. Around here the best football player loads hay with his father and does ranch work

You really want a kid that should be in jail, all over your yard, underneath the windowsills and in your shed? Who is going to supervise them?

ICE arrested 300 at a company in CA and then there were Americans lined up to get those jobs.

I live where Circuit City went out of business. Where Capital One has had layoffs. Where Wachovia moved to St Louis while trimming jobs beforehand. Where Quimonda went belly up.

Ummm - you? or hire a neighborhood kid?

As a kid growing up in the 1960's I use to cut grass, trim hedges, clean out garages, pick up trash, etc. for pocket money in my neighborhood. I even knew how to rebuild lawn mowers. I would do just about anything for a little extra cash. I never did report income (hope IRS won't come after me). I also delivered papers (120 papers on my route) for several years.

Today the neighborhood kids (at least in my neighborhood) think they are too good to do this work. This is the work for immigrants (illegal & legal). The best thing that could happen is for us to give this work back over to our teenagers. It would be good for the country and would instill a work effort in our young. The only problem I see today is the legal aspect of the work. Today homeowners would probably be scared of a lawsuit that could ensue if a teenager was injured doing normal yard work. Lawyers always wreck everything.

They can be used for all of the landscaping jobs that are currently filled by overpayed SEIU workers in cities and towns across America. Fire the SEIU workers thereby saving the taxpayers a bundle and have the police who will certainly have some free time since crime will go down supervise them.

The same goes for our Mexican American lady who cleans our home.

“I see these fellows burning the US flag, so I know darn well that they don’t really wan to live in America. Am I right??”

On Saturday we will all be treated to wall to wall coverage of the downtrodden immigrants from Mexico, at their rally’s, proudly waving the Mexican flag.

I find this funny, sickening and sad all at the SAME time. It’s SO very sad that these people show such loyalty to a place that gave them nothing.

I know, I know.... They were born there. And that makes it even SADDER. Mexico didn’t even give most of these people a decent education.

All the while, Calderon and the Mexican elites say to them...

“see ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya. keep going north. And by the way.... don’t forget to send your money back to us in Mexico. Because that’s what all of us parasites, that own everything, feed off of.........

It used to be that college kids spent their summer working farms to pay their next years tuition. Why is the government taking money from taxpayers for college grants and aid when these students could be earning it themselves?

Right and that’s the problem ... if you hire out you’re responsible if someone gets hurt ... it will come to the point when you take a taxi and the taxi gets into an accident you’ll be held liable too since you hired the cab ....

Hire an American.

What's your job? I'm sure we can find some third world person - or maybe some intelligent Chinese person - to do it cheaper.

Do YOU want to compete with people who will do anything to get here? Even undercut your pay, your wife's pay, and your kids pay to do it?

Do your own effing gardening or hire a legal fellow citizen.

We have had a wonderful man who has cut our grass, trimmed our shrubs, raked our leaves, etc for about 25 years and he is the best. For some reason he has his nephews living with him and they have been helping for about 5-10 years. Guess he is grooming them to take over when he retires. He and his crew do most of the yards on this street and many others throughout town. No, he is not an illegal. I would not hire them.

yes, put myself through school working as did most of the kids I grew up with. The "obesity epidemic" that's such a threat? Well they could put an end to a lot of it. And it's not new, by the way, these fat kids. I remember Pres. Kennedy started some program to get them fit, over 40 years ago, a lot it helped.

The irony is, they make all these laws regulating us, and then move all the work over to China and India where some kid does it anyway

There are plenty of willing and able bodied Americans.
When a farm in Arizona was recently raided, 300 illegals were taken away.

Hundreds of Americans turned out to fill those jobs.
It’s a myth spread by liberals that “illegals are only taking the jobs that Americans don’t want”.
