    It's OK if you work for BPS, gotta work somewhere, and no, I don't know how the company works, just my expeience with it.

    Personally I would put an ad up in the Politics Section with "Help Wanted: Fishing Department Clerk". Liberals Only!! Experienced need not apply. We want to start someone from scratch.

    Someone with a high school education, bad complexion and no idea what they were talking about for $8 an hour, because that is the typical Bass Pro employee you see on the floor?

    Hi Gary. I was wondering when you were going to show up to defend Mom & Pop from the Liquor Man from Missouri...

    You guys should just start getting together and boycott and protest against BPS so nobody else will go there and they will stop opening these stores you don't want to deal with - simple.

    BTW the county has built quite a number of roads over the years some may even lead to your house - and for all you Liberials Johnny Morris didn't build BPS - it was that stinking Gov and Obama

    I think given the choice Hillsborough County's taxpayers would rather see the $8 million go to local businesses in re-development grants than investing in un-needed infrastructure to facilitate unnecessary urban sprawl to accommodate an out of state retailer which will supply a few low paying, no-benefits jobs to high school kids which will compete with them, creating a greater economic hardship.

    But that's just me.

    I thought we resolved that issue...

    Should we expect threads beyond Brandon? What about when we open the stores in Palm Bay, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, North Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie?
