Anti-illegal immigration protester reports car window smashed, sign stolen

Real mature...not making themselves very sympathetic to the rest of us who agree with him. At least what he does is legal and constitutional. More power to Freedom of Speech." Apr 14, 09 4:50 PM

Terry, Catholic schools are not funded by property or any public taxes. That 's what Darwin is referring to. Only the bus service is provided for by school taxes." Apr 15, 09 11:00 AM

HBResident, we are also a country of laws. What Tom Weddell is doing is not illegal. Just because you don't agree does not mean he should stop. Is assault ok? Where does it stop? Someday I may not like where you worship or work, will I be able to damage your property? He has every right to protest...Boston Tea Party sound familiar? It's our right as Americans . The law is already in our favor we don't need to change them. We do need to make the gov't enforce them." Apr 15, 09 12:52 PM

Ok here is my plan. On Cinco de Mayo, we all go to SH Tire for lunch. I am also on a very tight budget. No joke, so I feel entitled to their generosity. I really hope that we wouldn't get food poisioning or God forbid ,trip and fall on that property.( Tires for life, not a bad thing.) Or better yet I could give up on lottery and just sue the pants off all involved.* Sarcasm once again for those of you who missed it* or is it?" Apr 15, 09 4:35 PM

Dogface, Don't think for one minute that if these men were legal that he would still bother picketing. If they are, SOMEONE would have stood up and shouted it. They are illegal, period. So if that is the truth there is no case for libel. Feed our own poor and hungry. Get the shelters set up to keep our legal residents out of the cold. No I don't want my tax money to feed and house illegals, its my money dammit. I work hard and the IRS still takes from my pocket. I mow my own lawn, clean my own house so I am not part of the problem. Who is?" Apr 16, 09 10:22 AM

Darwin, I too am real tired of being called racist. When logic isn't working for a cause they will throw out some bias. I resent the woman who said anyone opposed is a bigot in that article. But until the wealthy and lazy will never do their own work if slave labor is available." Apr 16, 09 11:36 AM

Thank you faceless for the defense. peoplefirst yes those so called innocent people do hurt us. All of us with someone in the construction trade. We have the mortgages to pay and taxes to pay. While you will blame Wall st bankers, we are all responsible. This country has overspent for decades and now its time to pay. Now what should be cut? How about food stamps for healthy capable adults? Welfare? Well, where are people going to work? If someone employs 2 illegals for the price of one American who loses? Not the illegals and not the schmuck who has them mow his lawn. But you bet your liberal butt the employer wins. Americans do have to prove themselves, we need to take those jobs, do what ever it takes to earn money, and not run to Welfare. Until people STOP employing the cheap labor this is not going to stop. Stop housing them in commune style housing and make employers pay for using slave labor. Tom Weddell does not need a reason to do what he does but as long as there is a Constitution he has that right. AMEN!!!" Apr 18, 09 6:05 PM

Knife wielded in clash between immigrant and protester

Jeez, maybe if he was fed at an illegal soup kitchen he wouyldn't have been so cranky... i'm sure some dope will be here any minute defending this." Apr 22, 09 9:48 AM

Knife wielded in clash between immigrant and protester

Wonder what the immigrant's record is like.....but if he's not legal we won't know...huh, go figure." Apr 22, 09 1:32 PM

Dagdavid, I have no doubt you are right. They most likely do take alot. But my question has always been, If you are here legally why are you standing on the side of the road looking for work? Why not use the same ways we all do, newspapers,pounding the pavement,etc? why stand there and take that UNLESS...you have a reason not to go about looking for work legally? thats all I want to know. If the protesters bother you, don't stand there, don't get paid by creeps off the books. Go put in applications. Please someone give me a reason..." Apr 23, 09 3:29 PM

Dag I hear ya , really but why not work at Walmart? If you are hungry enough to need food from a tire store , why wait in the rain and snow for work? Go and get a job by filling out an application. I may not totally understand the plight but if you are here legally why the underhanded or underground way of getting a job? I agree, they are here because of the hunger for cheap labor. But I personally know of well know large construction company who hires illegals cheap and when work slows down they keep the jobs and the Americans are canned. Thats why people are angry. To say that illegals don't take work from Americans is just not true. I can prove it many , many times. Thanks for the cordial words." Apr 24, 09 10:52 AM

PStevens, I'm not sure if you have been to McDonalds, Rite Aid or CVS around here lately but no one speaks English. So the language barrier is not the problem. In fact thay talk amoungst each other in Spanish and it makes me very uncomfortable. Giggling etc is very unprofessional. I don't hate or mistreat anyone but I resent anyone taking full advantage of my tax dollars and basically thumbing their nose at my country. YES you must learn English, don't call my office to make an appointment and ask if anyone speaks Spanish....no you need me, speak MY language. I don't hate or mistreat, I RESENT IT. I resent going to vote and having signs in Spanish. Excuse me, to vote you must be a citizen and to be a citizen you must understand basic English. VOTE HERE is not that hard to understand. So here we are again, bottom line, no demand for cheap labor no illegal immigrants. But they are here and now we have to house and feed them? I can't pay my own mortgage yet the IRS gets theirs, the state gets their share and the town gets theirs. When can I have my say without someone throwing down the racism card? Understand this.... I am not a racist, just real tired of struggling to get what I work damn hard for. Pay taxes for, my family has given life and limb for in war yet my government wants to be sure children of illegals get college? What?" Apr 25, 09 5:44 PM

Wow, touchy....funny how just a couple of you can't seem to have an honest debate withot calling names. If that makes you feel better, whatever. Its just very telling when you have to attack grammar or spelling instead of having a conversation. You are the angry ones, especially when you don't agree.I actually don't recall saying any protester is right, only they HAVE that right. But again, you can be as pissy as you want. Just don't expect anyone here to respect what you have to say when you go off on your angry little tirades.
" Apr 27, 09 8:39 AM

Please show me where I blamed anyone for anything. If someone else did then why is everyone who does not agree with you ignorant? Its not ignorant to have another opinion!" Apr 27, 09 10:16 AM

My personal thoughts are just that. Normal people can have thoughts, I am not required to share a brain with you. I have never proclaimed to have an opinion to settle anything. Your ideas have done what? As far as language, if you come to my office be ready to speak to me. You are there cause you need me, that is what that statement means, not that anyone "needs" my business.Also there is no need to take up space with my quotes, I am very aware of what I say. For someone who does not like or respect my opinion you seem hung up on it. " Apr 27, 09 12:02 PM

Your obsession with Faceless is equally disturbing.....therapy all around." Apr 28, 09 12:54 PM

Poor economy exacerbates persistent East End tension over immigration

LIMOM, I guess until YOU are affected by job loss it will not be your problem. Many friends and family members of mine are now out of work because employers would rather let them go and keep illegals who are cheap labor. Unfortunately I don't have a dozen or so friends to live with me so my husband can't be paid 8.00 an hour. He has been in construction for 30 years, he has a ton of exceptional work but that won't count until someone screws up a job and calls him in to fix it. Its not only cheap labor but unskilled. It does affect me in many ways, so I won't expect you to understand. But just wait, you will feel it soon enough." Apr 29, 09 10:10 AM

Poor economy exacerbates persistent East End tension over immigration

Wow, you just don't get it! I guess when you are affected it will be a problem. " Apr 29, 09 11:49 AM

Jane Q, very simple answer to a complex situation. Those same contractors that pick up illegals are picking up people who are not experienced . They are cheap bodies to put on a job site. They may pay them 12.00 per hour but they certainly charging 35.00 per man on the site. So he is doing well. Not so much for one man shows like my huisband. But you won't give him the chance based on the one contractor you dealt with. So I guess you get what you pay for." Apr 29, 09 1:18 PM

And the cases in Texas, California and Kansas? People on planes have to wear masks coming from Mexico not going to Mexico. No one blames immigrants.... its the ILLEGAL part thats the problem" Apr 29, 09 2:27 PM

I wish I had an answer. Just too many that are hurting right now and its frustrating. Thats all. No doubt people take advantage cause we live here. But there are a lot more people here that need help than these men who are so blatant about breaking laws to get here and then shove that in our face." Apr 29, 09 3:07 PM

You are just a nasty person... you like to call people names and you sir are an ass. And yes ...I had friend come back from Cancun who were given masks. Sorry its a fact. And again we are talking ILLEGAL immigration." Apr 29, 09 3:23 PM

Poor economy exacerbates persistent East End tension over immigration

Nope Local, if you have a different opinion you must be either ignorant or racist. Your post was very well put. Perfectly stated, who would be against 12 million more people to collect taxes from? Maybe you and I will be able to pay less at tax time." May 1, 09 3:19 PM
