    If it were my company I'd fire them.

    But then I would already have been hiring Vets and not hiring illegals.

    That's almost exactly what my neighbor said to me this morning. He said he wondered how many would take a day off if it also meant they no longer had access to subsidized housing, EBT cards, driver's license, medical care, child care, schools, etc.

    You can do anything for just a day. Next time, they should go for a week or two. I don't doubt that it would affect a lot of companies. But I'm not sure the US economy and labor force is as dependent on them as they think it is.

    I guess one of the reasons I didn't notice this immigrant thing was because ALL the Burmese refugees showed up for work yesterday. (and we have a lot of them)

    So you just described how the Mexicans feel about us! They wave their flag and have a hate-group called LA RAZA (the race) to wave their superiority in our face. Well, it sure worked yesterday.

    Besides no loiterers in the Home Depot parking lot, I didn't notice ONE iota of difference. nothing slowed me down anywhere I went or anything I did. Don't have a foreign housekeeper (or one at all, actually - I DIY) and wouldn't hire one or lawn care engineers, either.

    All their little hissy fit proved was, as said above, we can safely deport them and the US is in no danger of collapsing without their presence. Hell, our entitlements might actually improve without all the "entitlement sponges" taking stuff they actually aren't entitled to in the first place.

    ICE shoulda swooped in on some protests and scooped 'em up while they were in big groups! Big time saver.

    This kind of 'demonstration' by immigrants doesn't cause people to respect them, it pisses people off (at least it does me).

    My favorite breakfast restaurant was closed yesterday, so I had to go elsewhere to eat. I'll express my frustration with management that they employ ungrateful, undeserving employees who think loyalty to a good employer matters less than their 'right' to stage a walkout over immigration policy.

    I say send them back to whatever country they came from! I'll adjust to whatever small inconvenience may result from their departure.

    Backpedal? That was my first post in this thread. You seem to see alot of things though the prism of race. I was only pointing out that it was not racist for someone to say they didn't notice any effect in the exact areas that the strike hoped to disrupt. Keep labeling everyone you disagree with as racist though, it really advances the conversation.

    Nope, one doesn't have to wonder at all since I'll spell it out for you (in short, easy-to-understand words):

    Robgmn isn't a racist, unlike like some of the members of this forum.

    Clear enough?

    speaking of one self in third person, Illeism /ˈɪli.ɪzəm/ (from Latin ille meaning "he, that") is the act of referring to oneself in the third person instead of first person. Idiosyncratic and conceited people are known to either use or are lampooned as using illeism to puff themselves up or illustrate their egoism. :)

    "The U.S. Consumer Confidence Index for December surged nearly four points to 113.7, THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS! Thanks Donald!"
    Tweeted by: Donald Trump

    And, I wasn't speaking of myself in the third person as puffery. I didn't want happyguy to get all confused as to who "I" would represent if I posted "I am not a racist, unlike some members of this forum".

    You have to keep it simple for some people.

    I have been saying this for years. fire the illegals, hire vets, jobless and homeless.

    For every illegal deported and removed from housing, give that housing and the benefits the illegal was receiving to a homeless.

    By the time just half of the illegals are deported, we have solved two crisis, no more homeless or jobless.

    Actually I didn't know anything about this "Latina Employees On Strike Today?" thing.

    Maybe they can stretch it out for a month or two or a year or two.
    Hell, they can really try making me mad by leaving the country for a year.......or forever.

    Their feelings would be hurt if they knew how many people don't give a Rat's Ass what they think or do.
