Has anyone else noticed that the only people that use Civitan Park are people that don't speak English, it burns my worm to think that my tax dollars are supporting free soccer fields people who don't pay property tax, income tax, city, or business tax, county tax, wheels tax, etc... Well, you get the picture. What do you think?

So are you saying that because some people don't speak "your" language they aren't allowed to use "your" park?

NO/ that is not what I'm saying. The park is for EVERYONE-but why do people that have been raised here, went to school here, and live and have paid taxes ( like I have for 30 years) have trouble reserving this park?? Yeah, now that you mention it we have felt discrimination - it goes both ways you know? I know too that many are not legal immigrants and they don't pay taxes. So where's that leave us?? I will tell you- that leaves more financially strapped hard working AMERICANS like my family to have to spend money in Bristol or kingsport so we can get a field. So don't try and turn this into me being racist or that I am upset because " other races" use the park. It's pretty simple- people like you need to ask yourself;
How much freedom do you have to lose, before you lose it all?? I have absolutely no problem with ANY ethinticity playing on a field with my child, but it is what it is. Come here- get legal.work, pay taxes and contribute to your community. That's the AMERICAN DREAM- not--- come here, work illegally, take food and money from our govt without working. You can try and twist this post around but discrimination goes both ways.

I think you are being stereotypical. Because of their ethnicity, you assume these are non paying illegal immigrants. I work with a lot of Hispanics and other people who are living here legally and I can tell you they are some of the hardest working people around. I'm sure some of the people at the field are spongers, but don't we have plenty of native born Americans doing the same thing?

If they are not paying taxes from their pay, blame the people that employ them. That's where the problem is. If they own property taxes are not being collected, contact your tax assessor and find out why it's not being collected. That's where the problem would be. If they own a car, they have to pay their tax to keep it registered. If it is not registered, why are current tags being issued? Sounds simple to me. If you think it's a problem, attack it at the source.

Exactly, I work with several Hispanics and they are some of the hardest workers we have. The problem we have around here is the drugged out, low-life, white trash who are too lazy to eat all they want and only exist to siphon government handouts.

Your words speak with an overwhelming bigotry towards people that don't look like you!

I agree, hmmmn, but let's be fair, we can't limit it to white trash. The gravy train has no respect of color, if ya know what I mean. Many are guilty of free riding the system in spite of the color of their skin. It's not limited to the white trash. But all in all the users are just plain old trash, no matter what their persuasion of color may be !
