    General Powell did nothing wrong if he hired contractors who brought undocumented laborers to do the work. Talking about it, as he did, is a good thing, not a bad. He expressed an opinion about the status of those laborers as it relates to our immigration policy. You might disagree with his policy recommendations, but it does not make what he said wrong or evidence of bad behavior. Jeff Goodwin

    General Powell's backpedaling on his statement was what made me angry enough to respond to this thread. It seems so weak for our politicians to keep playing this problem for their own means. And frustrating to see it in so many of them.
    But my words were out of line and insulted some of the veterans on this forum. For that I apologize.

    David, you have been called a bully several times by different people on this forum. The strange part is that you appear to take pride in such behavior. Intimidating people is not a measure of cojones. How you respond when you are intimidated yourself is. In fact, intimidation is simply another word for bad manners. It evidences disrespect for whomever your are addressing and, by extension, to everyone else as well. It tells us nothing about the character of the person you attack, but lots about your own.
    sure yardley, and we all know how perfect your own character is.

    i for one can most assuredly say i dont and never have hired an illegal alien to work on my house. 99.99% of illegals are latino, and if i have only hired anglos with perfect english then i am pretty safe. so dont be too quick to claim "we all have done it" - thats the same mistake powell made. i do most things myself, and the roof was done by a friend as well as my kitchen redo. so dont be so quick to cast such a large net. this is typical of you - always finding an excuse. it gets old.

    and seriously, where was i ever a bully in this thread? paul young insulted me, big whoop. i merely sighed that a connecticut yankee called me out. thats bullying?? responding to challenging with a sigh is not bullyism. until that point i had said nothing about a single person on this thread. if so many people think i am a bully then i am sorry to say there are a lot of p*****s in here. nut up some of you for once - especially you and paul young. .

    i have no respect for backpedaling by a public official, i have that right. colin ""They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs," powell admitted he hired illegals and then tried to sweep it under the rug. i think he has done that before....

    No, you don't know where I was headed. You might THINK you know, but you don't.
