    Everything my state, local, and federal tax dollars are all I am going to disclose because its without a doubt a verifiable statement.

    Unfortunately I also helped pay for your and Methais and every other misguided asshole's public education and I can't get my money back for that but oh well. You're welcome I guess.

    I have no idea of what's being discussed right now (I haven't read the previous 15 pages or so), but isn't that how migrant workers...work? It seems like that happens with some kind of regularity, from the farms I've worked on and grown up around. There was always at least one worker or family on each farm that was an illegal immigrant, doing farm work for rides to and from the grocery store, room, board, and pay. The one who lived on the farm I worked on was from Bangladesh, not Mexico, but same idea. He lived in a trailer on the farm and sent all his cash back to his family in Bangladesh, who no doubt lived like royalty on it. Great worker, nice guy. Would recommend.

    Also, the situation you're describing, where a family shows up at the door and starts asking for a place to stay is not one I'm familiar with unless it's as above, looking for work, and that's in an industry where that's the norm. I've housed a family briefly, or really, just allowed them to share my apartment for a few months, and it's not like they just showed up at the door. I knew the man through work. That's generally how I've met most undocumented people I've known. They work in warehouses and on farms and such in areas where people have trouble filling jobs like that. He had some sports passport to internationally bike to some destination in the US from French Guyana in the 90s, and just stayed. His wife was Mexican I believe. Anyway, all illegal (although I guess the kids weren't, having been born in the US).

    He should've followed the naturalization process, yeah. His wife should have as well. But they were good people on the whole so it wasn't really a problem for me. They had kids, and those kids deserved the opportunity to not live on the street. The guy was kind of a prick, but a good guy overall. If he'd been a citizen with a health plan or whatever he would've probably been diagnosed with bipolar disorder or one of those other mood swing diseases. I dunno. I'm not a doctor. He was kind of a douche sometimes is what I'm getting at. The family on the whole were good people though. They paid what they could while they got back on their feet and were thankful for what was done for them. The fact that they were undocumented didn't factor into any of the decision-making, and I'd have done everything the same if I had it all to do over again.

    Unless you live in the same state and even then, city as PB or Methais, almost 0% of your tax dollars paid for shit of their education. I imagine PB is older than you too, so he was likely done with school well before you were paying shit in the first place.

    LOL! That was far better than I thought it would be.

    So to recap:

    "Hey Backlash.. what specifically are you doing to help the illegal aliens in your neighborhood?"

    "I'm paying my taxes!"

    Awesome. I'll be referring every illegal I might happen to run to your house and let them know that's where the free room and board is. Is that cool with you?

    Let's not confuse him with facts.

    Just remember: Backlash is doing his part to help the plight of the illegal aliens by paying taxes!

    Backlash is also volunteering to help these great causes:

    Welfare
    Unemployment
    Defense
    Public Education
    Healthcare
    Veteran care
    Infrastructure
    Paying interest on debt
    Social Security
    Foreign Aid
    Funding NASA
    National Parks

    Maybe instead of making fun of Backlash, we should be celebrating his selfless contributions!

    Great job Backlash! You make us proud!
