    I believe protecting our borders are more important, those jobs should be held in place. You cut back jobs, this leaves our borders open for more illegals to crawl in. Unfortunately this country is going to hell in a hand basket, thanks to the morons running this country that don't have the BALLS nor BACKBONE to deport illegals. I see more and more day laborers swarming fast food places and 7-11's, they gather at street corners and loiter around. It's getting out of hand and needs to be dealt with, NO AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS!!!! They broke our immigration law, they NEED to be deported!!!

    Politicians have no interest in preventing illegal immigration. Democrats and Republicans both depend upon campaign donations that come from corporate leaders - and those people all like cheap labor. Until corporate leaders change their mind or we change campaign finance laws, we might as well be hanging out a "Welcome to America" sign on every road into the USA.

  • Welcome illegals, the politicians do along with their contributors

    Time Bandit, My sentiments exactly. As long as businesses and therefore politicians make money off this cheap labor, they will never change. Unfortunately, the illegal's children have reached voting age and they do not want to send the relatives home, so now the problem has gotten worse. Reagan had a chance to fix it back in the 1980's, but he caved in to just naturalize them without regulating the borders by getting rid of incentives. Now businesses want to increase Green card immigrants to our schools and take up valuable technical slots that should go to Americans who paid the taxes for that slot. Corporate America is in full control, so better just figure out how to deal with it or start some sort of revolution.

  • Furloughs on Ft. Benning, GA
    Lobo99
    This part of Congressman's Westmoreland's ( Rep.GA) response to a email that I (James Coker)wrote him. "Congress has to make some very serious changes in the way Washington operates in order to begin digging out from under our debt and pass on a better country to our children and grandchildren. I truly believe we can reverse the destructive path we are currently on and save our country for future generations; but this will not be easy, and will not be overnight. However, as long as we are all willing to tighten our belts and continue to fight to reign in federal spending, then we will be successful. Please know I will continue to promote and support fiscally responsible legislation, and I will certainly keep your thoughts in mind regarding any future legislation dealing with sequestration." I promise you that none of his staff will ever go without 22 days of pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tighten our Belts? You have to be kidding me!!!! He should tighten his belt around his neck!

  • HUD Furlough Schedule - Updated
    Federal Worker
    In subsequent bargaining, HUD agreed to move one of the May furlough days to August. The first scheduled furlough day is now May 24th, and the one that had been May 10th has been moved to August 2nd (so, we now have only one in May, but three in August - the 2nd, 16th & 30th - albeit still in three different pay periods).

  • FAA and Air Traffic Controllers
    FEDMAN
    I am simply amazed the House and Senate are shocked the furloughs for FAA is actually taking place, when not only was in in the bill they passed, but in fairness, the White House and FAA Secretary told them last February and March what would happen. This just proves to me the House and Senate have their heads up the rears. It seems noboday cares if Federal Workers have salary freezes, or have to go on furloughs without pay, or having their future retirment benefits tampered with, but God forbide if a citizen needs to spend a few more hours traveling, the world now needs to be focused on this. We have many Feds losing money who are living paycheck to paycheck, and the only time your hear about the Sequestration is when John Public in another state has to endure a small delay, or cannot visit a National Park when they want too, or several other little issues. And now I hear this morning the House and Senate are going to exempt them and their staffs from Obamacare, the same laws they passed for the US citizens, they now want to be exempt from, when is this all going to end. All of this is simply stupid, invented by stupid people, who only have one thing in mind their own political ambitions, and ego. I say vote all of them out of office and continue to do so until we get people with some common sense in office, that have only one goal, to protect and serve the citizens of the United States, and that includes Federal Workers. I am fed up with this whole mess, who about you?
