    Be cautious on how you respond - DEA and FBI post similar questions.

    On the other hand, if WalMart can do it......

    I'm looking for a service such as jwingfield2k mentions - I know of one but they are too far away to make it practical. Anyone know of a company on the NW side of Atlanta?

    My dad is a farmer and has two working for him. He wouldnt trade one of them for ten white guys as he always says now. Just like guys here though, there are damn good ones and damn shitty ones. Whats so nice for him though is he provides there housing wich is a mile down the road from his farm. He doesnt have to worry about them not showing up is the best thing, if they dont show he gets in the truck and knocks on there door. They are both legal here on vacation visas and one even just got a driver license. I can say it was one of the best decisions he ever made getting them. Helping Hands is a place that provides this service of finding them in alot of areas. You might wnna try and see if there are any in your area.
