Re: “Kathleen Bryson Out?

Kathleen brought a lot of heart and enthusiasm to the table.

She deserves a lot of credit for giving it a shot.

Is she best qualified for the job? Don't know.

But, Rose is is a brutal proposition and a compelling reason why otherwise good people who could also be good candidates, leave the field to those who don't have to make the family and personal sacrifice that has become required.

Good luck Kathleen

Re: “Feds Back In Town

Cripes Iwokeup

Go back to sleep. These people are working hard for a living.

How hard and long did it take your roommates who TRY to come legally to get a green card or a visa.

They're not looking for a handout....they are looking for a job. It's an American tradition and goes all the way back to the English, the Irish, the Italians, the Cubans the Haitians and the Puerto Ricans just to name a few.

The cost to the taxpayer is dwarfed by the cost of social programs for the voluntary homeless, the voluntary hopeless drug users and the plain dull and you.

You can be a tax producer or a tax consumer.

You get to decide.

Re: “It Must Be Said

It's embarrassing.

We have more noble and important things to do.

The only crime these folks have committed is to support their families.

I just don't think it's so much Bush as it is a national mindset. But, when you consider the numbers of "our own" who chump the system, these hardworking folks who bust their butts, should be thanked.

Seems like the feds should concentrate more on reducing the national debt instead of persecuting people with a true work ethic.

Re: “Feds Back In Town

Well Billy Joe

When you run a labor intensive business and pay competitive salaries and benefits, for middle skilled jobs. When you provide bi-lingual supervisors and job training so those employees can advance, then you'll be entitled to an opinion.

I-9's require two forms of ID. That's about 20 minutes work and $50 bucks on the street in LA. What would you have Sun Valley do, dna tests?

I absolutely support these workers, or anyone else who is trying to provide for a family, instead of demanding some form of entitlement.

It's appreciated Hank.

Hell's own skateboard would crush that toe if it was the TS.
