Get your dad to make some inquiries about up here, if you're any good at what you do you should be able to find a job..... I'd bet the pay is comparable.

When I went with my 91b training + EMT License (not required, but good for applying), which is extremely outdated

1099'ing a migrant worker sounds like a terrible idea. Why would you make an immigrant with limited knowledge of American taxes responsible for paying their own taxes? And how could the IRS really hold them accountable without a SS#?

Aside from that, you're probably right: judging from that clip, the dude acts just as American as a lot of us. Fuck it, let him stay.

Part of getting their season work visa is learning their taxes.

At the end of the year when I file my paperwork, their info is sent in as paid subs, if they fail to report what i filed, they lose their visa.

Donald Trump and the End of Free Speech

Donald Trump is the victim of political correctness gone wild in America.

So wild, what is happening to him could be an important marker in the end of free speech as we know it in this country.

After his comments about Mexican immigrants during his June presidential announcement, the billionaire businessman has become the target of a massive campaign to punish him. Already he has lost tens of millions in show and endorsement fees.
Editor's Note: Do You Support Trump for President? Vote Here Now

To date, he has been cut from Univision and NBC for his Miss Universe pageant, severed permanently from his top-rated "Apprentice" show, and dropped by Macy's, the Professional Golfers' Association, NASCAR, and even Serta mattresses from endorsement deals.

However controversial one may think Trump’s comments, I am amazed practically no one is asking about the free-speech implications of the effort to punish and silence him.

Well, let's look at what Trump actually said. Here is the verbatim guote: "The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. It's true.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Trump has made it clear that he was not saying all Mexicans or illegals are criminals.

Sure, he could have been more precise and nuanced like most politicians in his original comment. But he’s not a professional politician.

Still, his point was clear: We have a problem when anybody can walk across the border, including people who may have had murder or rape records and commit more crimes here.

Trump was guilty of blunt talk, not a racist diatribe, as has been claimed.

One need only speak to Arizona border sheriffs like Joe Arpaio and Paul Babeu to discover that our nearly porous border has brought a major crime wave, including increased gang activity across our border states.

That story gets little attention from the major media.
Special: Tip: How To Retire Comfortably on $2,000

Then of course there's the recent maddening case of the illegal alien accused of randomly murdering a woman in San Francisco after he reportedly had been deported to Mexico five times.

CNN reported that at one point, nearly 1 in 5 Mexicans caught trying to enter Arizona illegally had a criminal record.

Most illegals are not violent criminals. They want a better life for themselves and their families. While it’s wrong to break the law to enter the United States, we should still set up a humane work-permit system to tax illegals and identify them for law enforcement purposes.

And, like most Americans, I want the border nightmare to end. I can’t comprehend why millions of Americans have to practically disrobe at TSA airport checkpoints, but anyone, including terrorists, can simply walk across the Mexican border and gain access into the U.S. So, it’s no surprise to me that Trump is resonating.

Despite being demonized by many, including some of his fellow GOP White House hopefuls, Trump continues to rise in the polls.

A recent CNN national survey found that of the 14 announced Republican candidates, Trump placed second only to Jeb Bush.

Why the Trump surge?

Perhaps Americans don’t like the way Donald Trump is being treated. And many Americans may be worried about a much bigger issue, how Orwellian life in America is becoming.

So a homicidal maniac who apparently was on medication for psychosis killed nine people in Charleston, S.C., and the major media would have us believe it was caused by the Confederate flag.

And when Donald Trump railed against the problems of some criminals entering the U.S., there is an effort to paint him as a racist and crush his business activities.

The irony is that the Donald Trump I know does not have a racist bone in his body. In fact, he has a lifetime track record of befriending and promoting minorities in his programs and businesses.
Special: Assess Your Heart Attack Risk in Seconds, Take This Test.

Consider for a second that Trump owns some of the most exclusive real estate and swankiest clubs in the country, places that elsewhere have not been so welcoming to minorities. Not Trump. He welcomes them with open arms.

I just received a copy of an upcoming book by Mick Hume entitled “Trigger Warning: Is the Fear of Being Offensive Killing Free Speech?”

The book wonders if self-censorship will be the new norm in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

The editors at Charlie Hebdo liked poking Muslims in the eye with constant blasphemous depictions of the Prophet Muhammad. For doing so they paid an incredible and unfortunate price.
As much as I disagree with their anti-religious satire (I respect people of all faiths), they had every right to do so under our sacred right to free speech. But it’s important to remember that before the massacre, there was little outcry from the media establishment that such free speech was racist, insensitive or inflammatory.

Trump has not been so lucky.

I believe the grant of free speech is a blanket one. We don’t pick and choose who it applies to. The last I checked Trump is covered by that right too.


IMMIGRATION -- HEY, LOOK! A COP YELLING AT A BLACK GIRL IN A BIKINI!


I'm impressed by the coolness and steadiness of our media in suppressing any news about immigration. It's as if they've built a triple-layer fence with border guards around immigration topics. And guess what? Their fence is working!


How many thousands of news stories have there been on Ferguson, ISIS, Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" or men becoming women?


But the media will never tell you about Mexicans gang-raping a lesbian in Richmond, California, an Indian immigrant in San Francisco importing 12-year-old girls he bought from their parents for sex, or three children being beheaded by Mexicans in Baltimore.


Don't Americans have a right to know about the cultures flooding into our country?


This isn't a natural transformation. It is purely the result of government policy. But our media don't care to discuss the issue. In fact, they get mad whenever Americans find out what they're doing with immigration.


When Americans do think about immigration, they're against it. In polls earlier this year, more Americans had a favorable opinion of North Korea than wanted to increase immigration. That's why the media's approach to immigration is to never talk about it.


Three times in the last decade, Democrats and Republicans conspired to grant illegal aliens amnesty. All three times, the American people rose up in blind rage and shut it down. The only way they were tipped off to the proposed amnesties was through the hard work of about three bloggers, four talk-radio hosts and the Drudge Report.


What will happen if Matt Drudge ever goes on vacation? (Answer: You'll be living in Mexico.)


The media will make absolutely sure we know about every immigrant who wins a spelling bee. It's either important to know about who's immigrating to this country or it's not. If it's important, then we have a right to be told not only about the spelling bee champions, but also about the child rapes, genital mutilations, welfare use and Medicaid scams of our recent immigrants.



But the media's position is: If we don't talk about immigration, it doesn't exist.


Unfortunately, they're right. Most people think about only what the media want them to think about. Everyone has developed a position on Ferguson, ISIS and gay marriage. This week, everyone has a position on a policeman's confrontation with a black girl in a bikini at a pool party in Texas.


But no one is supposed to have an opinion about who gets to live, collect government benefits and vote in this country.


Whatever issue you think is more important than immigration, you're wrong. Without our post-1965 immigration policy, Obama would never have been elected president. That means no Obamacare, no withdrawal of every last troop from Iraq, no playing footsie with the Iranians, no Eric Holder, no Fast and Furious, no IRS harassment of tea party groups, no Benghazi massacre -- and on and on and on.


Democrats haven't been able to persuade a majority of white people to vote for them in any presidential election since 1948, except the aberrational Democratic landslide in 1964. That's why they had to bring in ringers.


In addition to giving the Democrats tens of millions of new voters, our immigration policies have also brought in people who engage in charming traditional practices such as genital mutilations.


In 2006, an Ethiopian immigrant living in Lawrenceville, Georgia, tried to cut off his 2-year-old daughter's clitoris with a pair of scissors. The New York Times ran one tiny AP item on his conviction -- on Page 19 -- titled, "Man Convicted in Daughter's Mutilation." (Always look for "Man" in the headline to find the most appalling stories about immigrants.)


Thanks to decades of mass immigration from Africa and the Middle East, it is estimated that at least half a million girls living in the United States have been subjected to genital mutilation. (And that's just one of the many ways immigrants are making our country more vibrant!)


One white male, Bruce Jenner, merely contemplates voluntary genital mutilation and gets 10,000 times more media attention than the hundreds of thousands of "American" girls being involuntarily subjected to this practice.


When it comes to immigration, you'll only hear "Diversity is a strength," "Immigration is fantastic for the economy," "Polls show Americans overwhelmingly support a 'path to legalization'" -- pay no attention to the outpouring of hostility every time an amnesty bill comes up -- and "Oh, look! An immigrant valedictorian!"


The media don't need to run this scam forever. Democrats only need to keep it going until they have California-style majorities in every state, and then they'll say, "Screw you, America. We did this deliberately, and now there's nothing you can do about it."


That's exactly what the Labour government of Tony Blair did -- as we found out in 2009. In public, Blair's government claimed that the mass immigration of the Third World to Britain was absolutely crucial to the economy!


Once they were out of office, Blair adviser Andrew Neather admitted that their real objective had been "to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date," as the London Telegraph reported in 2009.


That's one way of winning elections. It's cheating, but it works!


Here in the U.S., Republicans aren't even fighting back. First of all, the GOP's big donors want the cheap labor. True, the country will be ruined, but business owners will be able to make a pile first -- and then retire.


Evidently, elected Republicans ran the numbers and realized that the GOP won't be completely wiped out for a few more years, and by then, they'll all be retired.


Apres moi, le deluge.


(Noticeably, the younger, smarter Republicans are all on America's side on immigration: Sens. Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse, and Rep. Dave Brat.)


If necessary, political and media elites will call you a "racist" for opposing their mass immigration policies. But they'd really rather that you just not find out what they're doing to the country.

Re: NBC to Donald Trump: You're Fired

There's only one problem with the "attack on free speech itself" argument: Trump isn't being targeted by the government itself nor is he being deprived of property or personal liberty thereby. So his right to free speech remains unassailed.

That said, people seem to forget that free speech is not without consequences; and one such consequence is that others may use their right to free speech (among other sovereignties) to make your life difficult.

Do a little role reversing, gender, race adjustments, and see how the government "gets involved". Thought you were smarter than that.
