Q: 

What are pros and cons of giving Illegal immigrants amnesty ?

A:  Pros: More votes for Democrats (if you''re a Democrat) Cons: Rewarding criminal behavior, spitting in the face of the American people, making more social services available to them, decaying national sovereignty, etc. The biggest con is that amnesty doesn''t seal the borders. If dirt is blowing in your house, you close the door before you clean up the dirt, right? But they want the door to remain open and *pretend* to clean up the dirt, while more keeps blowing in. There are no pros. None. Amnesty is a red herring meant to deflect from the real issue which is purposely not closing down the border. The annointed one even said as much. Pros - None Cons - Justice Pros- It''s simple and a way to basically end worrying about it, at least from one perspective. See below to find out why that...

Q: 

What is the percent of accounts receivable method?

A:  The percentage method means that you record an allowance for doubtful accounts or bad debts based on a historical experience of what percentage of accounts receivable result in being un-collected. The advantage of this method is it evens out the bad debt expense for a business over time and is relatively easy to apply from a bookkeeping standpoint. The downside is that the percentage method is generally NOT acceptable to record bad debt for income tax purposes and thus requires you to do a separate calculation for bad debt based on actual write offs anyway....

Q: 

What would be the advantages/disadvantages of legalizing prostitution in the U.S.A.?

A:  Pros are the women would be much safer, gov''t could tax the proceeds, maybe the prostitutes wouldn''t just be crackheads. A con is it would be easier for our daughters to get into such a line of work. advantages: 1. A means to regulate it from a health perspective and limit the risk of disease. 2. Elimination of a whole category of non-violent crime. 3. Reduction of violent crimes associated with prostitution, such as robbery and assault of prostitutes by pimps and johns. Disadvantage: Primarily the continued exploitation of women. However, mitigating that are two offsetting factors: 1) prostitution will always be with us anywa; and 2) women are probably more exploited by their pimps now than they would be if the occupation were legal. I can see no real

Q: 

What is the best age to adopt a child?

A:  Adoption is very child specific. The child that grabs your heart and really needs a home is at the best age. You need to look at your energy level, interests and aptitude, experiences and preferences and discover who you would be a good parent for. I''m sure I''ll get a lot of thumbs down but I believe it''s a newborn or very young baby because they''ll be in a stable home from the start & not have the emotional scars of older children who have been abused or bounced from foster home to foster home. The younger the child, the better chance they have of attaching. i think that u could go young about a new born r around that age so that they can know u better than getting y they r older cuz kids *** they grow up they think that they know evertthing im 22 years old and until this day i still...

Q: 

What are the advantages and disadvantages of working for a temp service?

A:  Hello. Well I''m in the same boat as you! I''ll be graduating in a couple weeks and I too have been applying since last year. I''ve gotten a couple interviews but no offers yet. I currently intern at a hospital and that will end in a couple weeks too. I recently signed up with a temp agency, got an interview and now I''m waiting for a call back. I would say the advantages to signing up with temp agencies are that you''ll have more experience to put on your resume and most times you will be employed, even if it''s only temporary. The job I interviewed for is for a few months but hopefully I will get hired by the company. That is the disadvantage. It''s only temporary, so I may wind up where I started before accepting the position. I would say go for it. While...

Q: 

Marital Status/Spouse''s Nationality: Condition of Employment

A:  I'd be more concerned with the following: 1 - How much are they paying me for the first 6-9 months training in the US? 2 - What are the terms and conditions of any contract that I might be required to sign? 3 - How much of a relocation allowance will they give me? Enough to get me and family there, get a place, settle in, and have enough cash left over to come back if the job doesn't work out? Keeping in mind that I'd be working in a unique cultural environment. 4 - And what are the terms and conditions of any contract that I might be required to sign for that part of it?   I'd want to see how much money and the contracts and if it was to my advantage regardless of the outcome I wouldn't worry about the rest of it.   Sure--your marital status and visa etc...

Where do you want to do it?  What do you need to do it?  How do you intend to do it?  Where is the financing going to come from?  Once you have a business plan, that plan should allow anyone who advises you to give you recommendations specific your situation.
