Re: “Yes, unaccompanied minors are coming to the U.S. from Central America. But why?

Here is the real point: We should follow the model in Europe and just treat any non citizen as a tourist. Let em cover over, take pictures of our cool shit, eat a hot dog but as soon as they apply for a job in any profession we simply turn them away. They won't come here, they won't try to live here. It will be the end of the immigration debate altogether. Shipping illegals around is kind of silly, just stop giving them work and they will leave. It happened at the peak of the recession due to fewer jobs and it will obviously happen again if we just follow European countries and only allow very high skilled workers (in fields where there is more demand then supply) to immigrate over for work. To the question regarding taxes: US citizens have to settle up every year on their taxes by April, or they can get their pay garnished, get audited, have their credit dinged etc. Now if you don't even have a social security number to start with, obviously there is no motivation what so ever to try to settle up and write Gov-co a check for all the money you made the previous year. So it is common sense, that illegal aliens don't write the government a check every year, whereas anyone will a SSN will have to. That is the key difference. Now for those that come over with fake paper work named "john smith" and go work at happy burger with their BS stolen SSN... yeah there paying taxes but these types are in the minority compared to most that work in fields where they can just cash under the table in blue collar jobs. I am not claiming that others don't avoid paying taxes too, but statistically more immigrants work in these fields and deliberately game the system. Regarding the old notation that immigrants are "taking jobs"... No one would care if they were all neurosurgeons, or astronauts, but the fact is they only take the commodity type jobs that are typically given to our working poor. So this creates more supply of workers then their may be available jobs in a specific field in a specific market. This is econ 101 stuff.

Do these "Silent Disco" events feature REAL disco music or current Top 40 crap?

Re: “Friendly, savory Che Gaucho Argentine & Urguay Grill

Worse service ever. World Cup finals. Called in the am to watch game at the restaurant. I was told it was sold out but could come after the game was over because they were open until 8pm. Show up to the restaurant at 6, they tell us to have a seat. 10 minutes later the waitress comes by and tells us the kitchen is closed. Parents were in town from Argentina. Total disappointment!!! My family won't be back

This article is absurd. To imply that all white people fear young black men is ridiculous & irresponsible. Thanks for perpetuating the cycle.

Re: “Piped butter cookies

If you use cake flour instead of regular all-purpose flour your dough won't be tough at all. It is the gluten that makes the cookies tough.

Re: “A lasting impression

This story made me laugh and cringe from embarrassment. I would've been mortified to be just laying there with my goodies out for mama to see. To answer question number two though, things happen...people get caught up in the heat of the moment and despite you wanting to stop things from going further, they don't or at least that's what a friend told me.
I'mma need Lavon to get his life together.

Re: “Yes, unaccompanied minors are coming to the U.S. from Central America. But why?

What an interesting accusation. All Citizens pay taxes and all undocumented aliens do not. Do you have any actual evidence to support that? How do you reconcile that with the claim that the immigrants are taking all our jobs?

How do we "ship them home"? We don't even know where home is. If we are able to determine their country of origin, how do you plan to repatriate them? Are you actually in favor of just abandoning the children somewhere?

You're so Charlotte if you wonder where all the checked out B-Cycle bikes are because you've never actually seen anybody ride them anywhere other than Freedom park.

Re: “Yes, unaccompanied minors are coming to the U.S. from Central America. But why?

I say we should adopt the immigration policies of Europe and NOT allow anyone that wants to crash our borders, to come over here and live and work illegally. If the goal of our government is to protect and serve, then they need to be able to differentiate between citizens that pay taxes vs. illegal aliens.

How come BI-LO didn't make the ballot? Not that I would have voted for it, but they do have several stores in the Charlotte area. Did you just assume it would come in dead last?
