I aggree that racism is racism no matter what. But this doesn't sound like racism, it sounds like affirmative action. I hate it and think you should be awarded jobs based on the best price and best work. That is what drives people to better themselves. If you missed the bid because your price was too high, then next time you might bid lower. I am aware of the real world situation where a black lesbian in a wheelchair has the best chance at gettting any government bid reguardless of price, and I think that needs to change. My idea is to stop welfare al togeather and educate the inner city and poor country folks with the money that was for welfare. Then create jobs in the US doing all the things we are subbing out to other coutries. Just think of the pride that would be instilled in people if they actually earned their money instead of having it handed to them. And the ones that don't want to work, will go hungry or get a job. The folks that are disabled will have social security and possibly a subsidised pension. Manditory millitary service for all (min 2 years). There. Now vote for me.
(BTW, I meant no offence to any with my comments.)
I fully agree that folks on welfare need to get off from it and get a job. I have folks down the roda from me living on welfare riding around in new cars yet we working folks cant afford it. Yet folks on welfare have there rent payed for them, they get food stamps, they get a monthly check to pay the regular bills, and they get free, fuel, yet us working folks have to pay through the nose for all of that. No wonder I cant afford a brand new 2009 car. I know what its like for construction workers my husband works doing roofs. And he has to put in bids for the jobs. If his is the lowest he gets the job, but then he has to pay his folks less pay then other people would. And we also get left with less at the end of the job. And lately we are lucky to get 1 roof a month to do. The economy is just really bad for everyone. Why say white construction workers shouldnt get a stimulus check they work as hard as any one else does. And at least there not living off the welfare system.
