A temporary worker program would be ok if it was properly managed. That last part is the most important part.
Biometric ID for foreign workers, a % of their wages held in escrow to be paid upon completion of their contract and either exit or renewal, forfeiture of said wages if convicted of serious crimes, clear non-eligibility for "social programs and benefits", etc.
Other countries do this. It's not hard.
I have a great idea, lets debauch and prostitute the citizenship of our great nation, in order to save a few cents on the price of fresh peaches. Won't those peaches taste good knowing that they are picked by illegal labor and you are saving a whole nickel or so on every one of them!!
He’d like to see more fruit produced inside the U.S. borders and it would be easier to do that, he says, with a guest worker program stemming from immigration reform
OOOPS, Ooops, oops. A guest worker program would cost the American Taxpayer welfare also. No welfare.. I would go for green cards, but the employer would be responsiable for those workers while they were in the United States.
Today we have the one parent household with several children from different fathers, the woman who for the most part has no moral compass has never been married to any of those fathers. and society wonders why we are having so much crime and drug use by the youth and that parent.
Worried about AIDS? According to the CDC, about 440,000 people die from tobacco smoke every year. That number includes the mostly innocent 49400 who die from exposure to secondhand smoke.
Deaths from AIDS? 8369. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/aids-hiv.h…
That's right, almost 6 times as many die from exposure to secondhand smoke as die from AIDS in the USA.
So if you want to be worried about AIDS to the point where you don't have sex anymore help yourself.
Just don't try to tell me that if you have a cigarette in your mouth.
I just downloaded the album from I tunes. The vocals from Mel and Sarra are incredible and puts your heart/soul at peace. It's by far my favorite Christmas album.
Hopefully, he's parlayed some of all this national press into some $$. If not, shame on him.
....hot off the press
"fairy tale of religious proportions!!!" Love it!! LOL. Our celebration of our honest and kind relationships NOW is worthy of our energies. ALL historic celebrations are the pretentious creations of manipulators. NOW is worthy of celebrating. Yesterday is history, written by extortionists.
"Parents, not teachers, impart social values."
Yeah that sounds good in principle, but what happens when the parents are the Crabtrees?
As Driftaway said, I have full confidence you would have expressed the same outrage and written the same article had the school linked to the Focus on the Family website. Right? Right? Your whole point is that school is no place for any values, not just the ones with which you disagree. Right?
I eagerly await your reply confirming your opposition to Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council being mentioned in any type of educational setting.
I'd also like to see how you would "grow jobs" and "start focusing on improving our city's conditions" and "start embracing programs that help citizens who are struggling the most" What do any of these words even mean? Your ilk loves to complain about all of the perceived ills of the world, but yet can never seem to offer any real solutions.
What's your specific plan? I see nothing but an empty suit spouting empty words, a man frightened by diversity and progress, trying to maintain a grip on outdated ideals, scared because his whole security and identity are bound up in an unstable, ignorant delusion.
The really scary thing about this initiative is that it might create an awareness that blacks and the poor are people too, thus undermining the entire basis for South Carolina's one-party system.
Thank you Charleston City Paper for keeping us updated on this important story! So glad women in SC still have choices for where they give birth!
"FYI - China discovered America first, long before the vikings. "
Cool. Nest year it's chow mein for Thanksgiving.
Turkey chow mein of course.
"The writer is point on." -Clarkie
If nothing else does this should give you pause Bryan.
Nice ute, mate.
I find it particularly ironic that he then goes on to talk about how South Carolina needs to attract more tourists. I am one of those people who would never ever consider going to South Carolina, and he is a perfect example of why.
Ahhhh yes, mat and more "truth & honesty". Every liberal should watch the PBS documentary "America Before Columbus". The Americas were not this perfect utopia spoiled by the white man. And the flow of disease was not one way.
By the way, mat, you need to cite "guns, germs, & steel". You also need to be honest about Dr. Diamond's research. It wasn't simply about America, but how civilizations evolve world wide and the complexities involved.
FYI - China discovered America first, long before the vikings.
Thanksgiving today is more about having thanks for our great country and our fortunes, not some myth of the early days.
More! More!! I want more!!
Templeton/Haley should not have tried to mess with so many upper class white women.
If the program was based on fundamentalist Christian values the author
would be celebrating.
We who are LGBT or not Christian don't have values and are an amoral and pernicious
threat to Mr. Crabtrees 1950s fantasy world.
What is so harmful and scary about diversity?
