DHS Adds Teeth to Enforcement of No-Match Rule, companies...

"The business community, however, doesn’t take a benign view of the no-match regulation because it could lead to massive disruptions in the labor market." Well, maybe its time to hire some Americans. "We do not have the workers we need to keep our economy growing each year,” Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez said. “There are jobs that Americans are not willing to do or Americans are not available to do.” What a load of crap. I have seen with my own eyes immigrants being chosen over local Americans. I took my son into a place to fill out a application. I was shocked at all the Mexicans in there. They had an interpretor running for Mexican to Mexican because they couldnt speak English. Guess who got the job...hint, not my son.  (Aug 12, 2007 | post #1)

World's Best Medical Care?

I would like the same coverage as people on welfare. If they do have to pay for something, its a reduced rate. Then they charge those of us who have insurance higher fees to cover the ones who get it for free. So I end up paying for people who have no insurance plus my own.That isnt fair.  (Aug 12, 2007 | post #2)

Democratic candidates address gay rights

I have nothing against gays. I just don't think they need special treatment. Be gay. Just don't throw it in my face.  (Aug 9, 2007 | post #18)

White guys are so much nicer than black guys

I dont personally know a mixed couple but from my observations more times then not, the white woman has the car and is doing the driving, she is paying for the food and what not, I rarely see the black guy with the kids. Its more of the white woman with the kids alone or with her mother. Just what I see. I dont know what is really going on in their life.  (Aug 2, 2007 | post #265)

20-Year Old Gay S. Carolina Man Dead In Alleged Hate Crime

All murders should be labeled a hate crime. Just because he is gay that makes him special?  (May 19, 2007 | post #122)

100 million tobacco deaths preventable: Bloomberg

I dont trust statistics. Who's to say a few million didnt die from some other contributing factor? Maybe they ate to much bacon  (May 19, 2007 | post #5)

Smoking

Call to ban smoking while driving

If you notice, NONE of the money collected from the cigarette tax is used to help a smoker kick the habit. That is because they don't want the smoker to stop. They would rather waste it on smoking prevention which doesn't work. I no longer smoke but when I did, I started because of peer pressure. Look at the drug prevention programs then look at how many teens do drugs. It screams failure loud and clear.  (May 19, 2007 | post #631)

Smoking

Call to ban smoking while driving

Smoking bans are a joke. They banned smoking at my work. It hasnt stopped the smokers from smoking at all. They cant watch everyone at the same time. If the Government really cared about everyones health, they would make the growing and sale of tobacco illegal. Its just a beginning of the end of free will. They start with something unpopular, put all kinds of bans on it, then move on to more and more things to ban until they get to something non smokers enjoy but by then it will be to late. Your rights have gone up in smoke...  (May 19, 2007 | post #626)

Thompson Evokes Reagan's Legacy

I dont see any good Demorcats running for president. No way will Hillery win. Obama? Yea right. So far I like all the candidates from the republican side. They talk common sense. Not defeatism. They actually LIKE the USA. unlike the Democrats who blame America for everything and just itching to get their hands on the raising taxes trigger.  (May 6, 2007 | post #14)
