Now after Bo Pilgrim flooded Pittsburg, Texas with a bunch of illegal workers, build a big house and a big plant north of town. Now they are broke. I maybe wrong but I think he pasted out $100 bills down in Austin back in the early 90's to politicans. If I am wrong please correct me. Looks like Pittsburg yall are in a heep of money problems, but you and others down in Texas done it to yourself.

Yep, we sure did do it to ourselves. But Chapter 11 bankruptcy is really not very bad. It is meant to keep the company alive for another chance to become profitable.

But bankruptcy is what Bo Pilgrim decided to do after he tried asking the Chamber of Commerce and the local politicos to ask their members to write Congress to beg for him to get a part of the Stimulus Package. I don't know how many people actually did so, but clearly, it wasn't enough if so.

My response to the request was to ask if Bo had been acting as a responsible citizen by hiring just those legally qualified to work for him.

Does he go out of his way to make very sure that all required documents are authentic? If he doesn't, why not?

Now that Obama has been elected, there are lots of illegals who are certain he will grant amnesty to them shortly after he takes his oath. Sadly, I believe he will do it.

If you don't speak Spanish now, welcome to your new official US language requirement: Press 1 for Spanish, Press 2 for English, everyone else, you're SOL. Don't be mad at me, be mad at the illegals.

We're all just trying to make a good life for ourselves. We're all required to obey the law.

Without the law, we have anarchy.

I had relatives who worked for Bo years ago before he became who he is today. This other guy I knew told me he saw Bo tired and sweaty as he hauled pulp wood, Bo told him there is got to be a better way of making a living.
Bo is not the only one, Tyson and many of your dairymen. With all respect to the person from Mt. Pleasant, Obama may give amnesty to some illegals. But one must think they will be paying taxes, the old way of Texas and some other southern states is WE USE YOU AND THEN LOOSE YOU. i am sure many of you can remember when Texas had 2 prisons in the whole state. But after our first republican governor dollar Bill prisons were everywhere. Here is where your problem started whith the help of some George Wallace democrats who control the state. One may think chapter 11 is not that bad, but the only chapter 11 I want to read is in a book.

ARe you a lawyer or a judge, just wondering as the comments you right seems like one. Not that it matters, just wondering as it seems you are educated in that area.
