<quoted text> What about religion? <quoted text> If a business wants cheap labor there is always temp agencies. Businesses cannot negotiate the electric bill or the cost of equipment, repair, insurance, rent/mortgage payments these expenses are for the most part fixed. Labor, on the other hand is negotiable to some extent. You do not appear to have anything other than a superficial knowledge of the nuts and bolts of actually running a business, meeting a payroll, putting out a product, competing which means one has to keep costs to a minimum. Sure you can be generous in paying workers but at the end of the day it will cut into your profit big time and your competitors will underbid you and get your accounts. It happens every day. If you know so much perhaps you should start a business which competes with say Wal Mart and pay your workers what you consider to be a decent salary and see how long you last.
You apparently had one too many cups of coffee today.

I'm not trying to tell you how to run any business you may/may not own. Not at all.

The comments are about WHY illegal immigrants are still present and we have an immigration reform measure in Congress that would legalize most all of them. It has nothing to do with you and paying your workers, and I don't have any workers to pay. I just know that illegal workers seem to be doing fine and are willing to continue working here and employers are happy to hire them. The folks who aren't thrilled with the arrangments are Americans who compete in a race to the bottom of the wage barrel and taxpayers who are providing most of the benefits which government seems to find a way to provide. Now, if you continue putting businesses that hire Americans out of business because they cannot compete against those who hire cheap illegal labor, you will simply displace the workforce of America (at the competing level of high school educated or less) into the realm of the unemployed (read that NEEDY and IMPOVERISHED). Is this particularly helpful to those Americans or to the shrinking and eroded middle class? I don't think so.

You can think whatever you like, but at the end of the day, any nation that continues to allow unfettered illegal immigration will ultimately and eventually over time become a failed state.

Alrighty, then. I'll be back later to read your objections and rebuttal.

It must not have rained on the fourth of July where you live. That's too bad. It is NEVER wise to set off an MD-80 in your hand right beside your head. At a minimum, it creates the equivalent of shaken baby syndrome. Don't ever do it again, and maybe you will eventually recover from the concussive impact.

Will it be Bernard Madoff? Will he get pardoned?
"(Reuters)- The White House moved on Friday to damp down speculation about President Barack Obama's choice to lead the Federal Reserve when Ben Bernanke's term expires, saying no decision has been made and no announcement is likely until the fall.
Bernanke's second four-year term as chairman at the U.S. central bank ends Jan. 31, and Obama has signaled that the former Princeton professor is likely to step down."
All Madoff has to do is pledge a hefty contribution to the DNC, he won't only get pardoned he'll be awarded a cushy ambassadorship.

They sure do talk about its downfall, stockpiling weapons, and preparing for mass chaos a lot, don't they?

I think they want to see America fail just so they can blame liberals and Obama. That's how wicked they are and little they really care about this country. Look at all the posts from the extremists who are constantly predicting the destruction of the United States. They enjoy the very thought of it.

Right about the coffee. I am not saying you are trying to tell anyone how to run a business. I am saying you do not really know what you are talking about. It sounds like book as opposed to actual knowledge. Theory. For example you say that business and government are in collusion. What collusion? They have to deal with each other. There are OSHA inspectors, There is payments to governments subject to IRS audits. Things like that. There is no secret hidden meetings between business and government officials to hire non Americans for cheap labor. No conspiracy theories. If you have actual evidence to the contrary, please present or provide a link. Any non American who has a job pays into social security and will not be able to draw anything out at retirement.
The comments are about WHY illegal immigrants are still present and we have an immigration reform measure in Congress that would legalize most all of them. It has nothing to do with you and paying your workers, and I don't have any workers to pay.
Then you have never run a business where you actually had to hire an employee? Background check? Identification? Health check? Drug test?
I just know that illegal workers seem to be doing fine and are willing to continue working here and employers are happy to hire them.
Businesses run huge risks if they hire non Americans, at least around here. It is not worth it.
The folks who aren't thrilled with the arrangments are Americans who compete in a race to the bottom of the wage barrel and taxpayers who are providing most of the benefits which government seems to find a way to provide.
Well i know there are problems associated with non Americans and their children and feeding and caring and all these things. How decent Americans deal with these matters. We can't just let them starve or bleed to death if they get injured because they are non Americans.
Now, if you continue putting businesses that hire Americans out of business because they cannot compete against those who hire cheap illegal labor, you will simply displace the workforce of America (at the competing level of high school educated or less) into the realm of the unemployed (read that NEEDY and IMPOVERISHED). Is this particularly helpful to those Americans or to the shrinking and eroded middle class? I don't think so.
What businesses? I think the problem is being over exaggerated. Most businesses are law abiding. There are huge fines attached to businesses which violate federal law and competing businesses will rat each other out to the feds. For example. If i knew my competition was using illegals, all i gotta do is make an anonymous phone call.

Taggers target murals in Mills 50 area of Orlando
ORLANDO --
Murals painted by a local artist to curb graffiti and tagging in Orange County are being tagged once again.

The city of Orlando paid $1,500 for Andrew Spear to paint a wall along Mills Avenue because it was constantly being tagged.

Commissioner Patty Sheehan approved dozens more murals in the Mills 50 area of Orlando.

But recently taggers have spray painted over the art.

"What really bothers me about this, this is art,” Sheehan said.“This nonsense is not art. And this is a desperate, pathetic attempt for attention for someone who clearly doesn't have a brain in their head. I'm just really upset about this because I supported this local artist to come out here and paint this mural."

Some of the murals are covered in a protective coat, which allows the tagging to be washed off.

If you have any information in this case, you can call Crimeline anonymously at (800) 423-TIPS (8477).
