Who want's to bet that if a 3000 mile fence starts to get built the government entity that wins the contract will not only overcharge but will use illegal workers?
Chris have you ever heard of Ellis Island? I'm sure your family went through there back in the day----Legally !!!! If Obama wanted to build a new one along the Texas Border I'd be all for the next wave of LEGAL folks to come aboard. However today's illegal immigrate just shows up and weights out the governments decision to ship them back and instead throws up it hands and says we can't deport them so we might as well let them stay and take there vote. It is what Regan did, as well as Bush and Obama is on track to follow suit.
If we had 100 percent employment and still looking to fill jobs I be the first one to let legal immigrates come on in and work. However, to many companies are moving jobs to India and other countries while hard working Americans are left looking for work.
Thanks for all the advice. The jury is still out as to whether or not I will partake. Just got back from the city (Denver) for the first round of radiation and chemo. 3 more weeks to go.
Rhys--- sorry for your lose but hope you were about to cash in on that Mesothelioma windfall. My fathers second wife cashed in big time still gets checks 10 years after the fact and all I get is letters of notification that she got another check. But as they say that's a story for a different day.
Thanks Jerry , pray is really all I got it's out of my hands Happy birthday
This is not related to the police blotter but since you 4 are the one's I want to reach out to this is as good a place as any to ask. Most of you know that I;'m 56 and grow up under a strict marine dad so there is no previous drug use. That is correct 5 years NYPD 15 years FDNY never once tried pot,grass wakiey weed etc.. etc. Now the question for all to answer honestly please.
I recently underwhen brain surgery for GBM stage 4 brain cancer. Starting mon. 7/21/ I will be living in Denver for a month to get chemo and radiation. Now I know it's legal and probably cheap if I get the medical stuff but since I am so old school and have never used it before should I go smoke some marijuana?
thanks in advance for you help and concern Kevin
Joe Nerney here again (5 years in the Corps 2 tours to afghan)
Can we please stop comparing Afghanistan to Nam? I've noticed that most of the people here who are against her service seem to be around that age group so let me remind you all something, WE GOT OUR SH*T ROCKED 9/11/2001 you want to talk about the defense of freedom Rhys? How about revenge for the towers? I'm not saying we have done everything right and I'm not saying we haven't made mistakes in the war on terror here and abroad. I'll be damned though if you claim that Haliburton and the federal reserve are the only reasons we do anything. Y'all clearly think entirely too highly of these people in Washington. They aren't smart enough, nor can they keep a secret long enough for things like that to be kept out of the public spot light. And no I'm not talking about Loose Change, they were a bit off, I'm talking there would be hundreds if not thousands of people coming out and telling the world that Haliburton drove ops in Iraq. And they would tell it with an inside view. It ain't gonna happen.
Again CAN WE PLEASE LEAVE THE POLITICS OUT OF THESE COMMENTS this young girl has a lifetime to change her views (which i doubt she'll do her father being a 20yr Navy man) but as for now her accomplishments should be admired and praised she joins the less than 1% americans who have not only served but served with a degree from West Point. The ranks she will be joining include the likes of Patton, Ike, and Sherman. She should be praised not criticized and damned for the actions of the government she hasn't even been old enough to have voted for.
Also the Mujahideen are still on our side in Afghanistan the Taliban were never part of the Muj
I was there I met them I know
Eric, Joe Nerney here, as a 5 year Veteran of the Marine Corps anytime you would like to discuss the Empire's complete take over of the world I would be happy to induldge you. However please let this young girl who got into one of the world's most prestigious universities (not just because it is a military academy it is literally one of the best engineering schools) have her moment of glory.
Congratulations and good luck to you. Thank you in advance for your service.
Jerry- my comment was in response to Scott W. regarding WSC paying it's far share. How can they pay on one hand and accept subsides on the other. Regarding the NFL ---
That's right, the league office falls under a tax code that exempts things like business leagues and trade associations.
But does that make sense? Two senators don't think so, and they've proposed a bill to change it.
Independent Main Senator Angus King and Republican Senator from Oklahoma, Tom Coburn, have crafted a bill to end the NFL's $9 billion-per-year tax-exempt status.
On "New Day" Thursday Sen. Coburn said: “This is a directed tax cut that to the league office, which means every other American pays a little bit more every year because we give the NFL league office a tax break and call them a non-profit. In fact, they’re not."
It doesn't help the NFL's cause that its commissioner makes $29 million a year.
