Sorry!
Yes, I've worked on a few construction sites.
Yes, I've mastered a skill or two.
Like what?
No, I'm not wrong. Eliminating work is the name of the game in America. It's why things like backhoes get invented... so that one man can do in an hour what 100 used to do in a day.
You didn't even read that last bit (didn't comprehend it).
I read & understood it. But we weren't talking about backhoes, we were talking about illegal people taking legal people's jobs for less pay and the companies/people that hire them.

Which is hard for me to understand. When I was in construction, I hired & fired many people. I could've easily hired illegals at half the pay of my legal guys. Just pay them cash & no one knows. But my American pride stopped me from doing or even considering it.
If affirmative action is in effect, and two potential employees are of equal skill... why shouldn't the company hire the candidate that helps them meet a quota?
Because they shouldn't even have a quota to begin with.

No, that's the liberal agenda. They think they're rights are best.

Liberal - Do it my way, because I know what's best for us all, I don't care if you don't like it.

Conservative - I don't care how you do it, just don't tell me how to do it.

That's capitalism for ya.
Once again... blame it on the people that hire the "illegals" >>> Americans!
Overhead - tax, insurance, payroll.

It's the law. If someone doesn't like it, oh well - hire illegals because no one cares any more.

Yes, blame the damned Americans that hire illegals. Deport the illegal sumbitch & deport his employer too.

I agree with you. Conservation is the key to a healthy environment for our kids & grand kids.
So I find it highly amusing watching some liberal but on TV bitching about smoking while drinking water from a plastic bottle. Plastic bottles should NOT be illegal, they just shouldn't be bought. Or if they are bought, people need to be responsible enough to recycle them.
Ever see how much waste the liberals left at the 1st Obama inauguration? 100 tons of trash just left on the friggin ground.
And the "occupy LA" nuts? They even left piss & shit on the ground....
Or seeing all the waste lining the shelves of every grocery store (cans, paper, plastic, etc). There's more waste in a TV dinner than there is food.
I see our waste as a sign if our being spoiled for too long.
No, I think giant corporations will not do much to lower their profit. But Americans need to understand that we ARE their profit. Without us buying their goods and/or services, they wouldn't be giant corporations.
Another part of the problem...

Is that everyone likes blaming everyone else.

Like you're doing now.

It would seem that God should not create anyone who has an expectation of evidence for claims, because they are pre-condemned to Hell.

Really? Then why do conservatives fight so hard to shove their religious ideology down other people's throats, for example fighting against gay rights and abortion rights? That sure smacks of "Do it my way, because I know what's best for us all, I don't care if you don't like it."

This is why education has great value. Without it, you are culturally illiterate.

You do admit to cultural illiteracy, don't you?

He he. No need to apologize. I was effing with ya.

I've worked as an electrician (20+ years ago).

A friend owns a concrete company. I've worked with him a little (mostly odd-and-end crap).

Roofing.

I've installed a gazillion signs (in addition to designing/producing them).

I'm not too proud to pull twisted pair and/or OF cable when asked (Data cable; before a slab gets laid down).
I read & understood it. But we weren't talking about backhoes, we were talking about illegal people taking legal people's jobs for less pay and the companies/people that hire them.

The second someone figures out how to train an army of squirrels to take the place of your "illegals"... we'll all be outta work.

Who's fault will it be?
Because they shouldn't even have a quota to begin with.
Then >>> I disagree.
Today >>> maybe so.

I don't buy plastic bottled water.

I recycle my cans & bottles.

I don't use paper towels.

I don't buy TV dinners.

I use reusable grocery bags.

I separate my recyclables.

My vehicles pass CA smog tests, which are brutal.

I reuse my lawn clippings as mulch.

I do my part.

I have reason to blame other people.

Do you?

You're talking about religious conservatives. I'm not one if them & can't speak for them.

Perhaps if liberals advocated abortions at a cost to the woman instead of the taxpayer, they'd get more support.

Perhaps if gays didn't feel the need to shove their sex life in everyone's face, then whine that their personal is just that - personal, they'd probably get more support, too.
