Now, about that post which suggested GW was out of control, you response overwhelmingly favored the President. And, for that, I just want you to know, for what ever it's worth, I'm proud to be associated with clear minded folks.

I have this to say about the border problem; I'm all about getting rid of things that don't work and equally about keeping things that do. That includes people. My Cousin is a farmer in NC. If he couldn't get Mexican help, he would not be able to carry on with his farming operation. Now, I'm sure he would much prefer to employ local workers. But, he can't get any. So, his hands are tied. But, he says the Mexicans work hard and steady, so he has no complaints.

About the space project; I don't mind the space program. It may seem like a terrible waste to some, but, where would we be without it. I certainly don't want to regress back into the dark ages.

Let me know where I'm wrong. Thanks gfp

As u said..I think the only thing I fear is that we have such a horrendous homeless situation nation-wide..the fact that these workers aren't afraid to do the work..what about those people without jobs?? Are the jobs posted?? Is the pay reasonable and if American workers get the same as migrant workers or less?? On the other american workers get MORE money for the SAME work?? See there is no real way to know..maybe some kind of regulatory system is required so there would not be such an "overseer" type of atmosphere

As has already been mentioned many of the so called homeless choose to be that way. As for those with mental problems. How many remember when we hade assylums for these people. They raised their food milked their cows and had very good medical care. The residents there where taught to do according to their abilities. But in the name of freedom people where dumped in the streets and other places they could not survive. I know this does not meet with the Political correct crowd's approval but they were safe and well cared for and had a sense of well being and usefulness.

Good to see you post again Aprille, but I don't see those homeless folks either, not in this town of 3000 or in Little Rock.While there are jobs if you want to work, I can see where someone might get theirself in a situation where they would not have transportation to get to a job. Or they may heve a police record and can't find a job especially in small town America. By and large most that want to work can find work. Again, good to see ya post here.

Trying to start a discussion, not argue...

"I think the only thing I fear is that we have such a horrendous homeless situation nation-wide"

Can you point me to some hard facts?...And I do not mean liberal press made up statistics or 'anecdotal interviews'...

I just do not see this "horrendous homeless situation" people keep refering to...

Granted...There certainly are people that do not want to work...Count me in that crowd...But then, I did for decades and paid off my house...Now I make the Wife work...Keep them women where they belong IMHO...In the workplace supporting us reprobate men...

Please pass the poi...

I am sure that there are some homeless people that had difficult things happen to them and got put out of their homes. This happens. Most of the homeless people that I have dealt with are unable to keep a job with their mental state; most don't really want an every-day job. I have found some of them shelter and they chose NOT to accept it. The people that run the shelters make DEMANDS upon them. They require them to follow rules. These places provide shelter to those that are truly homeless and don't want to be and don't mind living in a structured enviornment.

The "homeless problem" has always been exaggerated and exploited for political purposes. Who's that goober (can't think of his name...he's dead) who was the #1 homeless advocate some years ago in Washington? He used to say that there were 30 million (or some such a ridiculous #) homeless in this country.
It always bugs me when you see or read in the news that "4 families were left homeless by a fire...". As if they are now living on the street in cardboard boxes.
