<quoted text>You need to switch forms to the I.T.s White Settlement thread.. You'll see a first hand testimonial saying exactly what anyone with eyes to see can..The Travellers do stand out in White Settlement because they're clearly wealthier than their neighbors.
The reason that they are wealthy is because they SCAM THE INNOCENT PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR MONEY AND DO A HALF-A@@ JOB OF DOING IT!!! It seems that you are one of those scam scums too! You make the good Irish look bad in everyone's eyes!!

What do you think of the IT woman who beat the snot out of her own child in a Wal-Mart parking lot a few years back? I hope this isn't how children are treated in your community.

Pointiing out that whatever "Scams" any individual Irish Traveller may have pulled, pales in comparison to the wholesale theft committed by some educated corporate types is unneeded, since it's patently true..What is also true is that most of us make a very nice income through hard work and sacrifice. And the vast majority of I.T.s that I know have a business model that includes lots of repete customers and referrals. Just like any other successful business person..

Not to put too fine a point on this topic but most of us get the bulk of our job leads from the internet like every other business. And those lead sites have a review page, Angie's List comes to mind. If you want see your lead generation come to s stop, one surefire way to do that is to start overcharging you customers for subpar work...

Look it lady talk on subjects you know somethng about. Wasn't a Walmart parking lot, and it wasn't a few years ago either, it was during the Clinton administration in the last century!..BUT..That said, social services found 0 evidence of abuse. And her little girl (who's now on the cusp of adulthood BTW) was returned to her family..I.T.s children are our world.

You have compared the IT's to the Quakers who people regard as different. However, they are known for their honest which the IT's are not.

The Irish Travelers will never raise their image through all of your postings. It will only be when they become known as turning to honesty.

Also, strange how you ignore the last part of my paragraph.
There are bad people in all walks of life.... I like how people judge a whole entire race or culture based on something one person of that race or culture has done,especially considering an irish Traveler would (most likely) not give you the time of day if you asked,nevermind hold a conversation with you,so how can you voice an opinion based on your own assumption,on an entire group of people that you have most likely never spoken to??? if I said "Oh that guys black so he's a crack head" or "Oh he's Hispanic so he's a car thief" then you would likely say I was racist and I'd be in court for discrimination but its ok for a "Brotha" or an "Essay" or some1 like you to say "Oh there's an Irish Traveler so they are dishonest" one thing I can say about "Irish Travelers" is that u won't find a bunch of little teenage girls knocked up by an African-American male that they don't even know or can't find,all of the irish traveler girls remain virgins until they are married,which is more than I can say for ANY OTHER culture or "Non-Irish Traveler".... And furthermore,if the only thing u can say about Irish Travelers is they're dishonest,I guess that's not so bad considering in reality we're ALL a little dishonest at times (we've all told a little white lie here and there haven't we???) but at least u won't find any Irish Travelers in jail for rape,indecency with a child, murder, or child pornography or any other heinous crimes that I see
on the news everyday that are committed by people who are just "normal" or whatever you want to call people who aren't Irish Travelers.... Anyhow,all I can say is that if you think that being a little dishonest is worse than being any one of those things I just listed,then I seriously suggest you reevaluate your own morals and beliefs,cause u are either completely delusional ,or just ridiculously ignorant....sounds to me you may be a little bit of both.... And perhaps a little envious,that you can't be an Irish Traveler yourself, or that you don't have any of the things they have....Good day sir ;-) and God bless!

Well, Man, I guess you are saying that you don't socialize among yourselves then, if what you say in your last sentence is true.

To all who are reading,

I served as a missionary in England for many years. There are many types of Gypies, then, there are the Irish travelers. Even in England, these people are known for their dishonesty, thievery, and very violent. All of the above are a part of their heritage, seeing who can get the best out of someone. This is why many have nice homes, cars, etc. They operate in groups for the purpose of protecting one another. Their jobs include: paving, roofing, scrap metal, and other home repairs. In Europe, the woman were not allowed to learn to read. Their marriages were pre-arranged to an older fellow. Often, they were married at a very young age. Also, they were known for the diseases. Example: A large group of traveler made their camping spot in a farmers field. After months of fighting the government to move them. The left, leaving feces, garbage, etc. The government made the farmer pay to have his field tested only to find Hepatitis C, TB, and some other biological. This was only a year ago that I return from England. Now, mark my words. They are trouble to any community, likewise, the British has dealt with them far longer that us American. Anywhere they land, property and land will lose its value.

Cheers

Your words sound very Christlike for a missionary. The way the British government abuses the Travellers is disgrace. Ban their halting sites, and then complain when those families over build, ridiculous. Most of us have been in this ccountry for more than a century and have no connection to the I.T.s across the pond, save a blood one I'm sure.This much I can tell you, I work from when the sun is rising in the morning , generally until the sun is setting in the Western sky 6 days a week. Most of the I T.s I know can say the same . I pay for my children go to a Catholic school because the state of public schools now is awful. I pay a hefty amount in taxes, and I've never been on the dole.If the United States has a story it prides it's self with it has always been that if you work hard and sacrifice you can make it here..I dare say the I T s are that dream realized..

F.T R . White Settlement is a, and I'm being generous "Working Class" area of Fort Worth. There are I.T s living in much wealthier neighborhoods who go totally unnoticed. Its only because of the clear contrast in incomes between the I.T s and locals that we stand out. That and the fact that we are all intact Irish-American families. Course these days that is fairly exotic.In the parlance of the day, haters gotta hate...lol
