   I live in a German/American town, it's tough being a long haired hippy here, though I do shower regularly (facing away from the nozzle).

C'mon up to the mountains @corbe.
Let the hair and beard grow, wear some amount of leather and native accoutrements, mocs (not sandals), and stay away from all that granola-head crap. Wear a Bowie and/or a hatchet everywhere you go...

Eat venison and drink shine...
you'd fit right in.

You can bring a hippie chick with you. They are good for gardening. But not as good at it as a Salish gal.

Hippie chick?  We have something much better here.

Aw, you ain't telling me nothing, @Sanguine ... I have sung my praises of hilljillies all the way along... Salish gals included.

I was only trying to accommodate @corbe ... Though around here in female hill-stock, hippy chicks are definitely represented - though they tend to have become quite conservative over the years.

You'd do just fine here too - though if both your legs are the same length... I'd be just a minor disability when side-hillin.

My legs?  They seem to be the same length.  They do fine in our rolling hills.

A Capt Quint quote comes to my mind right now.
"The disdain of a small minority should never, absent legitimate grievance, take precedence over the majority."

Try doing a search on "mar a lago h1b visas" @IsailedawayfromFR .

Or this:

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/trump-properties-gave-144-jobs-american-article-1.3818600

OK, I call myself out on "undocumented workers", since the guest workers had H-2B visas.

You can call 'them' whatever you want.  At the end of the day, Trump himself admitted that he needed an additional workforce; then he qualified that statement with they had to be highly skilled.  For whatever his agenda is, he needs a larger work force.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

So your whole rabid point is that Trump acts solely to make enemies. 

rabid?

I do not think that word means what you think it means

the article says only 7 Americans applied for 144 job openings, and only one was qualified or wlliing to work for seasonal employment.

Hardly a 'won't hire Americans' mantra like you claimed.

What would you have them do to fill those positions if Americans do not even apply for temporary jobs?

So Trump is hiring immigrants to do the work Americans wont do?

I know exactly what it means and it pertains to the statement I made quite well, thank you.

What do you think it means anyway?
