Enemy invaders !!? And I thought "illegal immigrants" was a bit paranoid. Calm down! You don't want to go back to lockup, do you?

Don't worry your pretty little head. I enjoy sparring with you. You are soooo wrong about what this plague of leeches will do to the culture, economy, crime level and morality of this country. Soooooo wrong. BUT your are the most erudite of the pro-wet back clowns.
I think I saw a compliment lurking in there somewhere. Probably about my pretty little head. It also contains high capacity brainwaves.

Illegal sounds criminal.
We prefer the term illegal alien and it is criminal. If you don't like it you are free to return to your beloved home country nobody is stopping you.

You have zero "right" as an admitted illegal alien to be here and our law says you don't. FO juan formerly from pearland. Oh by the way the word is already spreading about your bogus biz and your lack of qualifications. The senior community will spread the warning around at their meetings. Don't forget the vast majority of businesses fail within the 1st year. I suspect your's will be a huge failure. If you've got time to spend posting narcissistic jibberish on topix you ain't working which means no money. So who are you mooching off this time?

why do you want to be where you're not welcomed or needed or wanted? guess if you weren't so blatantly arrogant and demanding forcefully to be accepted.....just maybe people wouldn't loath you people so much.

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

Continuing to rob them, as though you haven't benefited enough from these seniors' taxes throughout your illegal years of being here and having been educated here with their tax money! keep hitting them for their money, this is one of the many specialties you illegals are all good at and arrogantly proud of.

I lived and went to school in San Antonio. I learned the electrical field from my old boss Geraldo. I worked in Texas building new houses, doing all the electrical work. I decided to go off on my own and started my own company in Florida. I get many referrals and repeat customers. My new business is off to an excellent start. Many seniors need small jobs done, I specialize in doing all types of work, there is nothing my crews can't do.
