Worse will be when Nancy's selling all of my stuff after my demise.  the guys will be looking at this and that out in the shop and find an odd tool and ask "What the heck -- this 13/17 mm reverse-thread tap* looks like it was used only once.  Why did he bother even getting it?"

*If it's not that it'll be the 85 VAC soldering iron or the omnidirectional two-way tire gauge or such. . . :|

I didn't know that law enforcement was the authority on constitutionality.

  They seem to able to ignore laws on immigration and allow 20 million illegals into the U.S. which has brought down the wages in construction that U.S citizens used to make a decent living from, and ruined hospitals that have to treat them and not get paid driving up the cost of insurance.

  The guys working on our new house, the ones that speak English are making $4 or less an hr than when we build our house
in 1979.

Why don't you just pay them more, sounds like the right thing to do.

  If he does, I guarantee that the house will get done sooner and quite probably have a better fit and finish.

  Were paying plenty for the house under contract. And the reason we chose this contractor was because of the fit and finish.
  The subs do an amazingly good job very fast. Lots of cabinets installed, for instance, in one day.
  I don't have anything to do with paying the workers, the subcontractors do that.

  AND I sure as HELL am not going to pay an illegal alien one dime more when they drove me out of the tile business, when other
Tile contractors were hiring them paying under the table with no workers comp, taxes, etc. which I refused to do.

 Years ago working on a house,having lunch on tailgate, a pool contractor drove up and one of his workers says I need to change my number. I says how many f-cking numbers you got? I should call immigration. Contractor says go ahead he's legal, Yeah, then how come he needs to change his number? And since you challenged me on calling I will [this is before cell phones].

  I go to a pay phone, call Linda, see if you can get immigration out here.
 
  Later I find out she can't even find immigrations number in phone book or information, so she calls congressman Largomasino,
 he didn't have it and finally calls back with number. Linda calls immigration and they never came out.

  BUT this young carpenter, building steps down to the house that set below street level, says ''what's it to you'' I said ''tell me that 20 yrs from now. The very next job was a beach house that set below street level. GUESS whose building steps, an illegal alien :roll:
  I have a good idea their illegal when I ask them something and there's no speaka de English. Wish that carpenter was there.
