looks like a good argument for more border security.

They claim Civil rights violations if they are asked for ID or do anything to them.

All I'd do in response is just give a little boot violation in the ass and show them ID.

We've never had something STOLEN until this year.. so far a Redmax stick edger, a 30cc bcz-3000 3yr old but brand new shaft, head assembly string trimmer the day after all those parts were replaced, and a pancake porter cable air compressor, all stuff that was sitting out while working... likely when the guys walked back to the truck or trailer to get something else etc.

Oh and a freking whole 5lb spool of new rhino trimmer line.

I told em already, any more stuff stolen, its gonna start coming off the crews paychecks and if the truck drives off one day, dont come back to work because ill run em over with a john deere
