I'm not sure what you meant by posting this. Can you put up something more than the website and quotations.

Are you saying this is bad or good? What's YOUR take?

Sorry about that 8654Maine. I think it's good to weed out the bad seeds and make examples out of them. They give a bad name to the overwhelming majority of decent, patriotic contractors and contractor employees who do a great service to this country. These opportunists perpetuate the negative stereo-type that many have about the industry and a good way to break that stereotype is to show the public that we are just as disgusted with these types as they are.

Hey Gus,

You may want to go back and post an intro before a Mod comes along and tells you to.
