.......FLALEEEEEZ NAVI BLEE BLAH.......

I don't know why..but that just cracks the shit out of me...ahh, simple minds simple pleasures...
In the immortal words of Frank Barone(Peter Boyle....r.i.p.) holy crap!
I didn't get all the details but Peter Boyle died...so sad..he was so great in Son of Frankenstein by Mel Brooks....."puuuuin o' ah reeetz."
sigh*

Remeber when I was telling you about the article in the Dallas Morning News about the town of Cactus where the Swift Slaughtering Plant was ran by all illegal aliens..it was a 5 day peice..Monday-Friday...told all about how many people lived there and were illegals, they worked at the plant, etc...and wondered why with the 5 day exposure the INS didn't come rain them...?????
Well, they did it...Front page of the Dallas Morning News had pictures of handcuffed and crying illegals doing the perp walk to buses to take them away...They shut down Swift's all over the country..Thousands of illegal workers in Cactus and 5 other cities got arrested..I will do a little quoting:"As the company aimed to resume production today, industry experts said they were stunned by the scope of the action by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. A coordinated rain across a company's facilities , almost completely halting its production..raised worries in an industry that's still trying to recover from a crisis over mad-cow disease 3 years ago.The government estimate of daily slaughter dropped by 10 percent compared with recent weeks.
Federal officals were withholding many details about the raids...including the scope of legal charges and the number of workers involved..
Swift president and chief executive Sam Rovit said in a written statement that the government action violated an agreement for the company's participation in a federal worker document-verification program."Swift has never condoned the employment of unauthorized workers, nor have we ever knowingly hired such individuals,"he said...
(yeah..................right...don't ask..don't tell..)
Location :Cactus, Texas...between 300-400 workers were arrested and the facility remained closed Tuesday evening.
Location: Grand Island, Neb....the Police Chief said he and none of his men took part in the arrest..."When this is all over, we're still here taking care of our community and if I have a significant part of my population that's fearful and won't call us then that's not good for our community."...(if they were illegal they shouldn't be there..needed the help of the police.)
Location: Greeley, Colorado...hundreds of family members gathered outside the plant, with some trying to deliver documentaion to relatives inside..Some held signs:"Don't take my parents at Christmas,: "Presents not tears at Christmas."
Location: Hyru;m, Utah..a deputy described the scene outside the plant as a circus, with buses,a bunch of transport vans, a lot of cars and 150 or so agents.
Location:Marshalltown, Iowa...People gathered outside, most of them family..yells and jeers came from the crowd as federal agents led workers out to several white vans ..
Location:Worthington, Minn...some in the crowd that gathered outside the fences at the plant in this town of 12,000 watched workers, some in plastic handcuffs, being escorted to 10 white buses in the parking lot and said they heard women screaming about who would pick up their children in school.
Hundreds of agents from across the country were at the Swift plant, checking room by room for illegal immigrants in an action they called Operation Wagon Train.
Swift lashed out at the raids complaining in a prepared statement that they violated long standing agreements with federal officials on monitoring the immigration status of the company's workers. The action also 'raise serious questions as to the government's possible violation of individual workers's civil rights," the company said...(big fucking deal...they are ILLEGAL...they have no fucking rights..and you can't tell me that they didn't know that they were hiring illegals...kiss my fat ass...even if not before the 5 day article in the Dallas Morning News..they should have done something afterward and not waited for the INS to come kick in the doors and shut them down...assholes...)
I'm glad I buy my meat from West and Nemechec's....
There is much more on the article..if you are interested..you can google it or go to DallasNews.com...

I know it sound like I am being mean and cruel hearted about what is happening to them...but just because the labor is unskilled and desperate is no reason to let them run a meat plant that is butchering and sending out meat to Americans...Swift is being sued by about 2 dozen fired employees after they were injured on the job..oh man ..what a mess....


I am all alone at the library..since I helped Henrietta stack books and catalog some she said I could stay and just lock up when I leave...that's cool...but fork me..I'm done...going to go buy a West News Paper and see what happened this past week and what's going to happen this coming week..if it's exciting(don't hold your breath)...I'll post about it..

fuckme till I eat wheaties..

I wonder if this is just a token raid or if more will continue to be done about illegal aliens because most people in the country are outraged by the outrageousness of it all. It's not just a Texas,Arizona,California problem as you know.

It's about F--king time the INS got off their donut-laden asses and did their job!! The illegals here are totally out of control. The local construction trade is at least 50% Mexican. . .

I hope Swift gets their ass hauled into court and fined 50 times what they THINK they saved by hiring illegals.

Next stop. . . WALLMART!!

Fuck me 'til I speak Spanish. . . .

I don't know why people still don't get the illegal in illegal aliens. About time for a fence.

It should be interesting to see what types of fines they impose on Swift.

Maybe if these huge companies were sanctioned for hiring illegals, they's stop doing it.

Same thing with construction work...the employers know they're hiring illegals. Why doesn't somebody crack down on them?

I kind of hate to see the law fucking with people that work for a living. Since there are so many people out there robbing and stealing and getting away with it. But I was lucky enough to be born in the U.S.A. so I guess it's not my problem.

I swear to God, when I read "Swift Slaughtering Plant," I envisioned a freely-moving vegetable-based entity running down the street toward its next kill.

I heard about this, and have to wonder what we're NOT being told? Are the wetbacks being taken out back, asked a few questions and let go, or are actual deportations going down? The real dilemma is, what happens next?
Enforcement, or a freaking look-good, slap on the wrist because La Raza threatens to march a half million commies through Dallas>

I bet the company didn't give the Republican Party big enough contributions for the election. The statements by the company seem to me to be convoluted ways to say that the fix was in with the feds and now their upset because they got raided anyway. Then again it may just be that someone hates their name. I read that the Federal Election Committee has fined the Swift Boat Veterans $300,000.00.
Maybe Swift is a bad word in the NEOCON language.

I got the book yesterday and the Christmas card the day before. I wonder what will come in the mail today. Just bills if I know my luck.
I'm going to post something soon; the last few weeks have been a bummer as we used to say when I was young and stupid, as opposed to old and stupid.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled comments.

i wouldn't work in a slaughter house for all the tea in china. these cocksucker companies ought to pay big bucks to the poor saps that do this dirty work rather than using mexicans to drive down the cost of labor.

Ok J.S. if they were stealing identitys then It's ok with me for them to be arrested. I just don't like victimless crimes.
