    InLove

    Randy, my prayers and deepest sympathy are with you and your family. I've been gone from CR for a while and haven't seen this thread until now. I will miss her so much. Deb was and is one of a kind and one of the gentlest and most loving souls I have ever encountered. She sent me a number of...

    Dumbledore - oh my goodness gracious me!

    Hmm, I hope this thread doesn't degenerate into vitriol - perhaps I should be posting it in the Politics and Society forum. Mods, please move it if it is more appropriate elsewhere. J.K. Rowling Outs Hogwarts Character - MSN Movies News What do you all think? For my own part, I think it's...

    Snoopy - Petition

    I do more lurking than posting these days, but I, too, would miss him terribly. CR would definitely not be the same without Snoopy's posts. Please, Snoopy, don't leave us. Scarlet

    Pope: Other Christians not true churches

    I am very interested in what everyone has to say on this, and I think everyone has raised valid points on all sides. (my emphasis) I'm sure we all know this, but I want to point out for the sake of certainty: Pedophiles molest children. Some are gay; most self-identify as straight, whether...

    July Birthdays

    lol! thank you, InLove, for the birthday greetings! I'm very proud of myself, I saw it in considerably less than a month! The petit fours and the mojito were lovely, and the smiley reminds me of my neighbours when I practice at home ([Bugs Bunny voice]Huh...music haters[/Bugs Bunny voice])...

    Grab the nearest book

    Cadfael is so very cool. No particular smileys to anyone who guesses where this is from, cause if you can't guess, you must have been living under a rock for the last decade.:D Hagrid's big hairy face beamed over the sea of heads. 'C'mon, follow me - any more firs'-years? Mind yer step, now!

    A pygmy's view...

    sara, this post is beautiful and inspiring...thank you for sharing it. I particularly like it seeing as how I'm a professional singer myself. I like the idea of having such an important job to do.:D

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    cyberpi, I want to do you the courtesy of reading the articles you've linked before responding to your post, and as I mentioned, I am seriously pressed for free time these days, so it may take a bit. (I hope this thread hasn't died before I get there.):) But until then.... My purpose...

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    That is actually a very good point. Once I've read the actual publication (I'm seriously pressed for free time these days), which cyberpi was kind enough to link to, hopefully I'll have some sort of response for you.

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    But China Cat, according to the article I quoted in the OP, that's exactly what doesn't happen:

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    cyberpi - I apologize for my final comment up there. I read the thread too quickly, but on going back over it I see the comments about getting around border patrol were from wil, not you.

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    No, buddy, I ain't doing anything of the sort. I am saying that many of my European friends have been screamed - yes, screamed at by the passport authorities when trying to enter the US on vacation. I haven't said anything about Americans in general, I have only been speaking of the passport...

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    cyberpi, I haven't seen anyone making these points. In fact, I very clearly said just the opposite. The points I have been gleaning from people's posts, my own included, is that immigration policy in the US seems to be unfairly focused on our Mexican border, and that perhaps having as many...

    Thanks. I knew you weren't. Sorry if it sounded like I thought that. :)

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    I'm really interested in everyone's input, and glad that everyone is being friendly (after perhaps a little initial testiness) about a subject that generates strong opinions. But that's typical of this site, and why I enjoy it here so much. :) I agree that illegal immigration is a big...

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    Well, I can think of one...not excuse, really, but reason that someone might not obtain legal entry to the US...the sheer stupidity of the process in many cases. I know of no country where it is as difficult to get in as in the US, even just as a tourist. Friends of mine, coming on vacation to...

    Immigrants actually help the job market, at least in California

    What with all the brouhaha lately about immigration and fences in Mexico and whatnot, I found this article, from sfgate.com, an online San Francisco newspaper, interesting: "Immigrants in California do not compete with U.S.-born workers for jobs or depress their wages, though they do push down...
