<quoted text>Bunny a racist? Thats rich. I've never
him and wouldn't know him if I fell over him on the streets,
but judging from his posts, he's one more citizen fed up
with this illegal immigration mess. When I hear the words
"illegal alien", the FIRST thing I automatically think of
is a Mexican. Could that be because -- well -- the overwhelming
majority of illegals squatrting/trespassing in the U.S. ARE
Mexicans? Who took to the streets in Los Angeles and Maywood
California demanding "rights" and "respect", burning and
desecrating our national symbol (OUR flag) while waving the
Mexican rag in peoples faces, and insulting anglo's via bullhorns
and unflattering finger gestures, and shouting epithets at
Anglos with this ridiculous (and comical) "Si se puede"
Like it or not, people have seen so MUCH of this garbage
that its difficult NOT to think "Mexican" when you hear
the words "Illegal Immigrant" or "Illegal Alien". By far,
they are the most prevelant.
And whats with this "National Council of La Raza?"
"The Race", who's motto is "For The Race, everything, for
all others, nothing?" That absolutely reeks of racism. We're
it an anglo group with the same motto, the P.C. freaks would
ensure there would be heII to pay. They'd be castigated
and maligned no end. But, funny how these uber liberals
say NOTHING asbout "La Raza." And we ALL know that hispanics
(PARTICULARLY Mexicans) are the LEAST racially tolerant of all.
I did the exact same thing Bunny did, and if he hadn't have
said it, I was about to. Thats reality. Deal with it. Mexicans
hate our guts, they hate Americans, and they loathe Anglo's and YOU know it. I know it. THEY know it, and make to pretenses
about it, and don't care WHAT you or any other Anglo feels
about it. Face it Jim - you cater to illegals, you make excuses
for them, and constantly defend them, and I can GUARANTEE you that
they're laughing behind your back, which you so richly deserve.

"I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy
every minute of it."

And I am proud to say that I am a
R A C I S T. Especially if it comes down to me or an illegal Mexican (or illegal whatever) I will put myself and my fellow Americans first.

I am a native born Californian. I don't particularly agree with everything CA does. But you have to agree there aren't very many gas guzzling, oil burning and smoking, air polluting cars out there trying to go 70 on the freeway these days. Can we just get these illegals outa here too?

MH=Matthew H. a lazy bitter employee who did not do any work. His friend and boss Mary enabled him and let him do nothing until she quit when this was discovered. I would be making lots of calls while he would be saying he called but hardly did.
Interestig reading this board, lot of former employees lying about their treatment. KW was far from perfect and had it's issues, but so do a lot of companies.
Hi this is MATTHEW HODGE !
"Jim of the North" I gotta call bullshit on ya! I was on top until your little buddy, the wanna be statistician from Providian showed up. I don't seem to recall any Jim of the North either. Jim if you recall, people who saw through the (your) bullshit weren't treated to well but, if they kissed (your) ass they could sleep at the cubicle, like I would see this fat slob, buddy of yours. The introduction of this type of office politics actually served to destabilize the POC for the whole company also with nit picking and nickel and diming it's personnel. And "Jim" your loyalty sickens me you cock breathed little worm. I worked harder than most, Mary never enabled shit. Mary did most of the work up there in regard to making the place run too. The "manager" was just as much a shister as the owners and didn't do shit except play shitty golf and act like he was increasing productivity.
Former employees are not lying either you shit stack.

I quit before Mary did too "Jim", and to hear that little worm of a "manager" on my voicemail wondering if I was coming back.....UGH!
As far as being lazy "Jim" you shouldn't use adjectives like that on me. I'm far from it. After leaving your beloved fuckshow KW, I didn't get unemployment, I got a job. Pretty lazy huh? Like I said, I didn't know any "Jim of the North" but, if you like? My "Lazy" ass will lazily Google Earth your ass and lazily beat the fuck out of you.... So "Jim" you prick? I say don't misspeak.

I was a salesman for Homeworks!! Lance and Rick and J9 all nice. I had health issues they worked around it. Gave me financial support whenever. But many expected to make 200,000 plus like the Rick Ss,Ken J's and on. I made $33,000 in one day!!! How in the world could people complain ?!? Tell you how!! They could not perform !!! You needed to work at it. I moved away is the reason I quit!! Sorry to all the nice hard working people. Best wishes. J
