I have to admit that I assumed the US-made brand you were talking about was Skil (and that they were cheaper in Texas), but I just looked it up and apparently Skil stopped making saws in the US in 2007 (right when I stopped having to buy new tools each year).

    You do make some good points about the management, too.
    Skil is like Black and Decker (B&D) that makes 99% throw away junk for Harry Homwowner, although B&D is trying to bring out a "pro" line. But Skil/B&D do make good, and cheap, accessories like blades/bits, saw horses and tool stands/legs/tables that work quite well. The Lowe's brand, Kobalt (also imported), makes some good (but not best) tools/accessories and has some clever variations of their own. Milwaulkee tool (and its partner Delta tool) make very good U.S. tools but they are a union labor shop and thus very expensive. The Japanese and Germans make some pretty good quality tools/accessories as well. The best part of a global market is the competition, as each must try to one up the other, while still not pricing themselves out of the game. ;-)

That may put hundreds of citizens out of work, and cost the business owner millions, for the fault of a single lazy manager that failed to check ID properly. I can see shutting a company down for repeated violations, but a steep fine seems sufficient to act as a deterent.
    I disagree. A fine just becomes a cost of doing business.
    Revoking a business license has a marvelous way of focusing one's mind.

    What if games are for children.

    I do like the idea of shutting down public schools. We should get the government out of education either way.

    Aw, come on now, Black and Decker doesn't even have 1%. I'm only talking about the Skil worm drive circular saw (aka their 1%). Not their other tools, which are crap. I once made the mistake of buying a skil drill and tossed it off of three-flat in about 10 minutes.

    Milwaukee has a big service center in Niles IL (a suburb of Chicago not far from me) so I used to buy a lot of their tools, although they are expensive.

    I think the states being ****ed over by the Regime should refuse to send taxes to the feds. Stop withholding. And refuse to assist the feds until we have a regime change.

    He has become a dictator, a tyrant. He is acting in extra-constitutional ways. He is selecting which laws he will enforce and which he will not. He, along with the courts, are acting against the American citizen. We must have regime change in the US.

    He promised fundamental transformation. We have moved from a free people to people living under a regulatory tyranny. The one term Marxist did not do this by himself. President Bush set the stage. Shame on him.

    Using the bureau of labor and statistics information:

    Carpenters

    If you scroll down, you will see that the mean hourly wage for Chicago-Joliet-Naperville, IL Metropolitan Division is $25.37

    Mean, meaning the average.

    The fact that I have experience was enough for me to know that you didn't have a ****ing clue about what you are saying. The above is simply verification from an outside source that you are, indeed, clueless.
    Um, those are wages NOW, not during the peak that you were talking about, nor are you including any benefits (health, dental..), but go ahead and tell me again how you were paying benefits, meeting the wage levels for that time and again how US workers were "lazy".

    They weren't lazy, they were not attracted to what you had to offer, they found BETTER offers.

Some places have WAY MORE illegal immigrants than others; perhaps you think AZ has only the average number of them?
    I often wonder why those on the left despise American citizens and prefer illegal aliens. If you do a quick review it is all the usual suspects who believe allowing illegals in and allowing them to stay is a good thing. It does not matter to them that American citizens are harmed. It is especially true if the Americans who are harmed are in the bottom half of wage earners.

    God I hate liberals, including those whose lean is undisclosed.

    Re: The AZ Immigration Law Has Been Decided

    For those I've been debating with in this thread:

    I've been thinking about the "lazy Americans" rhetoric I've been using in this thread and I realize that I owe people an apology. It was way over the top and doesn't accurately portray my views. My apologies to anyone I have offended with this over-the-top and uncalled for rhetoric.
