Now who is going to hire into their healthcare services a person that weighs over 400 lbs? How can they be expected to care for someone else's health when the have failed miserably with their own?

The federal governemnt fosters the "needy" and "take what's owed to me" mindset by focusing their campaigns toward the very ones who depend on EBT for their survival. Remember, you don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Why should they get up and go to work when they can sit at home, spit out babies like rabbits, and live off our taxes?

Vote REPUBLICAN.

A northerner is like hemoroids, They're alright if they just come down then go back up. If they come down and stay,then they are a pain in the a##.

North Carolina ranks # 48 (fourth from bottom) for all races with unemployment at 8.9%. With that sorry state of affairs, your republikan legislature just passed a jobs bill---for illegal aliens . What have they done for unemployed native North Carolinians? Answer: Not Jack except for cutting off their unemployment benefits and raising their taxes .

More republikan bs. The people of Ashe County still have mountain pride and would rather be working. Ashe County has more than its share of illegal aliens taking jobs that county residents would gladly accept if they were hired. So why would the tree farmers prefer to hire illegal aliens? Wouldn't have anything to do with the FACT that you do not have to pay social security payments for illegals would it? Now that the republican legislature has put up the welcome signs to illegals, the unemployment in Ashe, presently at 11%, will get worse. Same for all the other 100 counties, including the industrialized ones. The mantra that the new law is for the "farmers" is pure unmitigated bull shit. This is a jobs bill for illegals, pure and simple.

One "business" man has two sawmills and cannot find workers to run but one? That is the evidence? Who is this alleged business person? If there is profit, the mill would be running. The old labor intensive antiquated lumber mills just cannot compete with modern band mills. Look at the equipment shown in that film. Every cut turns 3/8 inch of wood into sawdust. Most of the logs coming in aren't even as big around as your leg. The % waste is so high that he would have a hard time making profit even if people showed up and worked for free. This faux news film is a great work of fiction based on misleading details.

Unemployment rate has been sky high ever since most industry was sent overseas.You do not need a PHD in economics to see the correlation.
Major metro areas like 3 big cities have bounced back and the rest of the state is left to die.
You all tell me how the two major political parties have stood up for the average citizen and looked after local interests. I feel most big businesses and both major political parties are guilty of treason= look up the definition and dare say it is not true.

Short term planning with a focus on bonuses based on quarterly results brought about by cutting the labor force and coasting on inventory is a perfect prescription for decline and eventual failure of any company. The problem is that most managers are doing this with only their personal financial gain as the goal. There is generally zero loyalty to the company or its employees.
