Making them walk sounds better. My husband isn't the only one who would love to do this, several other pilots have said that they would be willing to volunteer even if they have to pay out of their own pockets to rent aircraft from our fleet. Not going to happen, but it's a nice idea anyway.
if we just got our fellow US "citizens" to stop hiring them we wouldn't have this problem.

sad that you cannot even make a post on landscaping without making an as of yourself...

but then you have shown how you can't match me so many times before...so many times...
YAWN! You obviously like to read your inane thoughts. Sadly your credibility and claims of intellectual prowess went out the window when we realized that you ride a mower for a living. Oh ... wait... that's right ... you plant trees and flowers for a living. Yeah ... I can see where you would believe that this is a differentiating factor. LOL

in fact, i left a very, very lucrative career in that industry over just that issue... our industry was being overrun by illegal workers, the quality of the work was going down on the intstallation crews as were the wages so i couldn't get quality people as even foreman anymore. i brought the issue up many times in our trade industry association, i quickly became persona non grata in such discussions...

i have values and principles i stand by , so i changed careers.

No, more like you're running from your own mind. That is assuming of course that you ever had one to begin with. Have you always been this pathetic?

Incredibly pathetic when the only way you can get validation in your life is to come on a public forum like Topix and bash other posters in order to make yourself feel superior and important and to boost your fragile ego when, in point of fact, you're nothing but a very little, hot air filled, loudmouthed little blowhard whom no one respects or likes. Get a life, loser.

Thanks for proving my point to every one here. You're so full of hot air that you should hire yourself out to hot air balloon companies to fill up their balloons. You have the ego of a Titan and the balls of a flea or a gnat and the intelligence of a cabbage. Poor, poor, pitiful, pathetic you. I don't actually have to come on here and cut you down to size because you do such a good job of it all by yourself.
