  • U.S. shifts approach to deporting illegal immigrants (Obama's amnesty thru non-enforcement)

    09/10/2010 6:33:58 AM PDT · 13 of 13
    ritewingwarrior to pissant

    What would be better is to just arrest them and deport them instantly. Criminals etc. If they have pending immigration applications then let them handle that in Mexico, Honduras, Guatamala etc. They can wait down there not up here. Then we can get our lazy youth and welfare people to go work in the fields for minimum wage and watch the economy recover.

    Dear Your Great Lordship Kim ‘Kong’ Il;

    Please please please help me look like my weak foreign policy can really work. If you would just entertain the idea of meeting with one of my representatives i will come and bow before you in front of the entire world, in deference to your greatness. You don’t have to agree to anything but ,if we could make it look like you are interested in hearing my ideas, it would really help me out. I am desperate please please help me. My con is being revealed and i don’t know if i will make it through my entire term if i dont achieve something. They might even ask for my Nobel Prize back. I would even considering sharing it with you, because i know you have been cheated from receiving a Nobel Prize in Science and Math and Literature so many times when you clearly earned it.

    Please please please help me.

    Your Servant, Barack H. Obama

    Uh Hi Henry, over here. American business!! We took losses majorly the last year and a half. Can we extend out our losses? Can you tell vendors and suppliers why we have trouble paying them timely when our customers don’t pay us timely? How about you just forgive our vendor debt since you seem so anxious to do it for the new media.

    Why don’t you insist on the Tax Incentives of 2008 being extended now before it is too late, so that we can recoup our losses from the overage of taxes we paid in the last few years?

    When the tax incentives were passed in 2008 i bought a business, new equipment and hired new personnel. Now with the failure by the government and the banking industry to support our economy some of those jobs have been lost.

    Get with the program.

    They have to actually fund the original stimulus money first instead of holding onto it until next year before the election. The stimulus should be renamed, “The Money we promised to the people now, but will deliver later, so we can get reelected fund.”

    What a joke. They are waiting to fund stimulus money in hopes of spurring the economy right before the 2010 elections and avoiding a takeover by the right.

    And to top it off, if you really knew how many products within your home are made in China you would have to move out and build your own house. Plumbing is another one that comes from china. Plastic and metal piping. Nails, and screws, electrical conduit, doors, closet organizers, furniture, lighting, sinks, tubs, showers, roofing material. the list goes on and on. 90% of Walmart’s non food products are from China. So don’t act like buying goods in China is not common, and yes there are flawed products, but it is the fault of the person purchasing those products for not specifying what they want.

    Do you know how many ‘American’ manufacturers have their products made over seas and then assembled in the states so they can say. ‘Made in America’? Wake up and get with the program, most of the non consumable products you use everyday are made in another country because unions have made it to expensive.

    Shame on me? for protecting my employees jobs? If we cant produce product at a cheaper price then we cant compete any longer because non certified people working out of their garages are killing us. I pay my employees benefits and good wages and there is no union. I haven’t taken any personal wages in 3.5 years. Every dollar goes back into improving the company and expanding our customer base. Yet we are at the mercy of the banking industry, and i am sorry you feel that my 65 employees deserve to be laid off, rather than trying to do everything to cut costs, and not support unionized business.

    If the unions would drop out and start going to a REAL capitalist society, unburdened with false modifiers like union wages, we would have no problems.

    So should i buy material from canada and mexico? China is no different than those NAFTA countries. Mexico has no labor laws or pollution standards either. I compete directly with canadian companies who are financed by the government and have little or no overhead. They kick our asses on price.

    Should i tell my employees, sorry guys you are out of a job, because other countries are competing in America, but i have to buy only American goods that keeps the prices high? There goes $4million in taxable income for the government a year, and a loss of about $15mil a year in corporate revenue being taken out of the system. Yes lets buy American while the rest of the world doesn’t play by the same rules.

    Very smart protectionist policies just like Obama. Everyone i know in the construction industry blames the contractor for not watching over the product he was buying. then it would never have been bad product.

    You are exactly right. China will do whatever you ask , but don’t treat them with disrespect and cover your bases. there are plenty of services that will confirm your product before it goes on the container. The fault lies solely with the American company who brought it in and did not specify exactly what he wanted.

    I started buying plywood from china because the lumberman’s unions make prices too high to compete. The plant i went to was clean and orderly and the people wore western clothes, and they were members of at least 5 separate American industry organizations. They came to a trade show in America recently. Their product is perfect. and every container is fully inspected before it leaves the port. Capitalism is a free market and that is a world market.

    And the kicker is they take trees from northwest america, ship them to china, cut them, lay them up and ship them back cheaper than American companies will make it.

    China is not to blame, neither is mexico or canada or any other country that manufacturers products for the US. The unions are to blame 100% they are the reason why prices have inflated over the decades beyond the normal course of a free market. Unions are a false drivers of economic growth. The only reason we have a minimum wage is because ordinary people had to be able to compete with Union wages and buying power.

    Give me a $5000 tax credit for each employee i hire over minimum wage and ill hire a bunch tomorrow, instead of looking at our company’s demise because of the government manipulation of the market.

    “Americans are not all stupid and lazy, not by a long shot.”

    No only 53% of them are. I do verify documentation when i hire migrant workers. I always go through a legitimate American business, and request copies of payroll and ability to work legally. I never pick up day laborers. Not once in 15 years. I can’t count the times i have sent an American home because he/she was horrid. I never have done that with a migrant worker.

    And for those 53% of the population who are morons, many of them are uneducated and unskilled. They are also democrats. I would hire anyone over a democrat honestly since they tend to be apathetic and entitled. Lets ship out the democrats and let the good migrant workers come here under contract. Deport a Democrat today.

    I am all for building the wall all along the border to keep illegals out. As for the crime, yes criminals come here to hide out, only a wall will cut that down. Those aren’t necessarily the same people who I would employ.

    While i don't support illegal immigrants, and think we should have a migrant worker program, i have been hiring laborers for the last twenty years. Immigrant workers work hard and fast for the most part. They don't screw around and they don't complain about working more than 7.5 hours a day.

    You take your average American with little or no education, who already has the entitlement thinking, and they aren't worth a lick. Drug problems, being late, lackadaisical attitude, horrible decision making processes.

    Americans are buried in the ME ME ME thing and materialism. Immigrants tend to be more interested in feeding their families. Maybe we should pay the immigrants to teach our poor uneducated masses how to work. That's why they come here, because they know the American worker is to stupid and lazy to do what they would do in a second.

    Lets look at the real problem, and that is parents failing to raise their children in America with proper values and ethics. Being born to parents that have these values and ethics isn't a guarantee of performance, but it starts in the home, and not at the border.

    Lock up the border and have a guest worker program only. No more illegals.

    Kept Florida out of a recession? really? The housing market is done in Florida for right now, and if it hadn’t been for the citizens forcing the change in the property tax laws, the state would be more upside down than it is. Please oh please do not endorse him as President. Lets get a businessman to run our country. Someone who is clean and without question. There are guys out there, look at Bloomberg. He is fiscally conservative and more socially liberal. But he stands on the side of being fiscally responsible first, which i think we can all agree with. That is the key to a winner for us. Not saying Bloomberg is the guy, but he is way better than Crist. Newt would be great also, but he has a shady past and the party needs to distance itself from religion, unfortunately if it wants to win in the future.

    I am a hardcore conservative but lets realize the state of events in our country and the level of intelligence of the average voter. Our country is filled with stupid people who don’t want to be told what to do. What can you do for them. Making abortion (an abomination) as a key ingredient of our campaign is a sure fire way to drive people away. We are going to lose 3 seats in the SCOTUS with this president, and it is going to give the liberals much more judicial power.

    We must defeat the socialists in the next round. Clearly a RINO is the only possible winner, since a staunch conservative isn’t going to win in this environment. Obama presented himself as centrist, but was indeed a socialist. Lets get a conservative who acts like a RINO only, and not a RINO who is a RINO.

  • ANOTHER UNINFORMED FAIRTAX CRITIC

    05/12/2009 1:58:18 PM PDT · 246 of 330
    ritewingwarrior to RobFromGa
    While I have been a Fair Tax supporter for years, there are problems with it. Tax evasion would be very high. Its no different than now thought. People still barter things tax free. Happens all the time. Technically if you give a person $10 to wash your car there needs to be tax paid, even if its the kid across the street. Its crazy.

    The benefit is that all of the drug dealers(there are lots) and other criminal enterprises would suddenly be paying the tax. They wouldn't care really because they could just steal more or raise the price on their drugs. So a neutral loss on tax evasion (the same people will continue to do it) and the increase in black market profits toward the tax base might actually lead to a net gain.

    The best scenario is to stop taxing corporate profits. Corporations pay out big pay and bonuses so they don't get nailed with tax. Take that tax away, and corporations would hold more money and invest it into growing the business.

    I own several companies, one being a manufacturer. The government is trying to put me out of business, and drive my employees out of private healthcare. That is not right and should not be tolerated.

    The Fair Tax isn't the big fix but should be part of the grand plan. Each state needs to claim sovereignty and take responsibility of their own citizens rather than the Federal Government running everything. Go back to limited Federal government with a Fair Tax only for their limited expenses. Social programs should be at the state level only.

    Big deal. Lets see if he can close off this ‘loophole’ which will be the fix for taxing overseas investments. A company with an offshore branch can just divest themselves for a loss to a foreign owned holding company. Then enter into a joint venture with their now ‘non american’ company and weight all the profits to the new company.

    If Obama wants to restrain trade and try to stop joint ventures he will shut down world trade.

    Stop taxing businesses and there won’t be a problem. Stop trying to drive out private healthcare so Americans are forced into the public system.

    Its like the death tax. If everyone turned their estate into an irrevocable living trust, then they won’t have to pay the taxes. It never dies.

    The lefts idea is to tax you on the same dollar over and over. They want to tax overseas money? Then people will send post tax dollars overseas into a foreign company set up in a trust and it will be gone for good. Wealthy people are going to exodus from America if this continues, since none of us will have a business left.

    Yeh but your investment manager is following what he hears about guys like Soros or the other hedge fund managers. I didn’t listen to my broker, and glad I didn’t. I saw the writing on the wall a year ahead also, but not in the same position as him to risk OPM to make some more.

    This is corruption at its finest. Soros controls information, and the media. That is more powerful than money. He knew what was going to happen, because his actions directly contributed to the collapse of the economy. He knew what the government was going to do, and was doing all along. He was a major driving force behind the bailout. He is behind Geithner’s very actions. AIG money went to hedge funds, and right out of the country into Soros hands.

    Pretty slick. Where is the uproar over bailout money going out of the country to guys like this, when less than 20% of $1 billion went to some executives?

    Thats where all the money went. Lets distract the fact that we just sent Billions to Europe for the purposes of ‘helping global liquidity’, and borrowed the money to do it, with a couple hundred Million to some hard working people. Most of them have agreed to give all the money back anyways. Its basically 100% tax. They left out 10% so these guys could hire a lawyer and accountant to figure out if they have to pay the tax. Ultimately it should be ruled unconstitutional, and there be no restriction on bonuses, or activities. The government gave a loan. They did not give free money.

    Wouldn’t you think the first thing you would ask if someone needs $100 Billion is, “what are you using the money for?”. I am beginning to think that these guys aren’t completely inept as it appears, but rather, they are just really bad at hiding their back room, pay and play schemes. (which makes them inept con men) The sheer volume of negative stories coming out of this administration is staggering. And not the political slander from the right, but really bad decision making.

But the reality is that he is going to have a lot of very able bodied Americans furious with him, namely all of the business owners. His support is already dropping, and losing Democrats that weren’t part of his pay and play scheme. That is why he is trying to ram all this through right off the bat, because if he waits there will be no support for it. He needs to act now. America isn’t going to stand for this long. The Tea Parties are already starting. 10th Amendment claims being made. He will have to cooperate sooner or later just to keep his office. The problem is the whole country is being run strictly by politics now, and there is no rational thought about consequences.

    Job loss is not really the worst thing in the world to business. Usually layoffs and cutbacks get rid of dead weight. Union shops have an impossible time getting rid of workers. With the larger employee pool, employers can find good candidates that know how to really work. Sure you have to filter through more unacceptable candidates but this is the time to lean up the processes with better people. Revenues will suffer but profitability as a percentage can be maintained.

    Taxation is the biggest hurdle to our recovery. Revenue could plummet with rising prices, and that will not bode well for stocks. I think we are done for personally, at least for the next two years. After the right takes back the Congress in two years, and the economy is in the tank, Obama will have to concede. Maybe we can get those tax incentives after all.

It basically was a unit that went on the bottom of the ocean about 1200+ feet and had a big long pipeline. Pressure pushed the water through the membrane and then a pump took it up. The water is 99% clean and there is not a huge effluent or cleaning issue. I think they have developed some of these in the middle east. I had approached San Diego county about it but they were too nearsighted. Now they are dying for a real solution that doesn’t pollute the coastline.

    That is what he is doing. Look there is a reality between races. The word is culture. Music, food, clothing, lifestyle are different across all races. Of course it is more common to integrate when people share a similar culture. While Mr. Holder claims it is racist, it is just a fact that a large majority of minorities, practice their own culture. That is not typically the culture of the white majority. Minorities, not just blacks, usually only mix with another race, when they have acclimated themselves to another culture. Blacks call these people ‘Uncle Tom’. I am not sure what Arabs, Indians, or Asians, call their own people who give themselves over to the ‘white culture’. I kind of think they probably don't.

    It is natural to spend time with people who share your same interests. That is not racist. I don't hang out with younger people, and don't hang out with senior citizens for the same reason. Am i discriminating? No, it is just a matter of life that we want to share time with people we relate to. I have several friends of different ethnicities, and I do socialize with them a bit. But not like other friends who share my lifestyle and my reality.

    Change race to age and you can see how absolutely moronic his comments are. It is time to prosecute people like Holder, Jesse, and Al for their inflammatory and hateful speech.

The Swedish plan has a chance as long as there are only a limited number of banks being taken, and there is a definitive short term exist plan.

    Since it is our tax dollars that own the place, it should be in taxpayer hands and not just a few shareholders right? We bought it unwillingly, but we did it and need to deal with it. 400 banks would be impossible. Keep it to 5 or 10.

    If anyone can accurately predict the economic outcome for the next five years, they have to be the smartest people in the world. People like Buffet and others don’t count, since their participation actually affects the market.

    The potential for us to be in very dire circumstances within the next two years is very high.

    Obama’s stimulus really doesn’t spend the money right now. So he plans to do a scaled back stimulus and rely upon lower taxes to help us recover. This would be my preference, but the taxes need to be lowered on business dramatically.

    I think they know Tax cuts work, they just can’t emphasis it or it throws off their party line. We are at the point where it could go either way. It is a crap shoot.

    This lady is crazy if she thinks she can guarantee anything for the future.

    The missing vote from the other day was Ted Kennedy who was too sick to vote. The same three RINO’s went with it.
    We need to start doing recall elections.

    Of course he does. He is in the bag for the Muslims all the way. A unity government would be the end of Israel, when the Arabs started to take power. It would be a crime to allow Jews to be persecuted even more than they are.

    How about his moral requirement to show his vault copy birth certificate so we can all see what it says?
    Where is his moral requirement to discuss how he is permitted to be the President when only one of his parents was a US Citizen?
    Where is his moral requirement to discuss how he managed to have Indonesian citizenship, which would revoke any American citizenship, and then suddenly he is an American again?

    Dick Morris is on O’Reilly he just said that Obama’s speech was a show of his eloquence and good understanding. He must have missed 90% of it, when Obama looked like an old catatonic lady droning on and on about his talking points.
    At least O’Reilly called out how boring he was.

    What a softball from Thomas and then Obama calls on a Huff Post guy? Are they a legitimate unbiased news source now? This is unbelievable. I had to watch the dog show did he go to the Fox News reporter yet?

    No. He got them to ask questions he wanted to use to shed off the attention from the economy, but he is still inept. His handlers can’t control everything. He is just a shill for others. He just blathers on and on and uses his key words all the time. Empty suit. But those were not hard questions. A hard question would be, Could you give us a detail of the failed Bush policies that lead to this catastrophe?

    Are you watching the same press conference? He just called on two people from his list, and they were not questions about the economy. We have government sponsored media in full effect.

    At least he explained his decisions. Basically the decision for $800 Billion was as a stop gap for decreasing national revenue. That has some validity. However his implementation is wrong, and he claims that the conservative policies have failed.

    LOL the reporter from Reuters changes the subject to foreign affairs right off the bat. Way to move the subject away from the economy, and a purely economic speech.
