  • I admire people that work for a living as myself, but unfortunatetly I was running late to work one day and got on my Harley and rode over 120 mph , I thought it was a good excuse to break the law because I was on my way to place that gave me income. otherwise give me wellfare and I dont have to rush anywhere, let tax payers support me

  • "The Coast Guard has been checking every boat for illegal immigrants, arresting them out there on the water, a woman said, as others in the audience nodded. Why are they keeping people from simply making a living, she asked."
    This statement would be comical if it wasn't so ridiculous. First of all, the CG detains illegals, and then hands them over to Customs and border patrol. The misinformation in this article is an example of poor journalism. Why on earth would the Advocate print false information, such as the above comment, which then allows the public to then spread the false information to everyone else and their brother. Additionally, whats so bad about illegals being handed over to the Border Patrol, they are here illegally. I would assume that the CG wants to the fishermen to make a living, but you must do it within the law. Our great country has laws that we as citizens have to follow, the great men and women of the CG enforce the laws, they do not make the laws. Everday of our lives we have laws to follow and we have people that enforce them. If I run my own business and then decide that I do not need to pay taxes, am I going to complain when the IRS comes after me, is it insane the amount of taxes I pay, yes, but I chose to get into a business and I have to follow the law.
    If the advocate staff writer would have googled USCG sector Corpus Christi, there are hundreds of phone numbers that she could have used to perhaps get an accurate statement from the USCG instead of printing the one sided article full of inaccuracies and obvious emotions. THe USCG does not make the laws, they enforce them. If they are unhappy with the laws that they have to follow, perhaps they should contact their local congressmen or senator. Unfortunately usually the ones that complain the loudest are the ones that are breaking the laws. Shame on the advocate for printing such a one sided article.

  • Really????????This is what they are upset about? This was a complete waste of written words. There is no valid complaint here. What a joke. Hire "LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS" or people with valid work visas and there is no issue. What a joke!

  • I was pulled over by the police while speeding to work, they arrested me because I was drunk at the time. Because of the police I was fired from my job for not showing up. Why are the police targeting me? I was just trying to get to work to make a living!!

  • This article is funny. Its somple, follow the law and you wont have any issues with any agency. As long as the Coast Guard shows up when my boat is sinking, or I need them for some other emergency, I could care less if they dont show up to a meeting to explain that people are breaking the law, and people are here ILLEGALLY. Its really not that complicated. Keep up the good work Coast Guard.
