i mean...really sad and I quote

"Charity work does make you a better person, but it does not identify you as a good person. Helping your fellow man betters all of us, but it does not make up for sins you commit."

cant any of us do a little bit of good for our own community...geez!

Out of work for two years and having no solid prospects,

57-year-old David Miller found himself in a difficult spot last week: competing with teenagers and college students for a summer job at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.


Channel 10 of Phoenix reported the incredible benefit to unemployed Americans when Sheriff Joe Arpaio raided a bunch of Pei Wei Asian Diners and led most of the workers there out in handcuffs because they were illegal aliens.

This is a case study of what happens when you remove illegal aliens from their jobs.

First, Pei Wei had to close its doors because it didn't have enough legal workers left.

Second, Pei Wei immediately started recruiting workers from among legal residents.

Finally, and triumphantly, as this newscast video so well shows, unemployed Americans created long lines to take the jobs.

How many times have you heard politicians, academic sophists and too many journalists facilely say that illegal aliens are just doing jobs Americans won't do? How many times have you heard that from a friend, co-worker or relative?

And how many times have you heard them specifically say that Americans are not going to lower themselves to wash the dishes in the restaurants you frequent?

Well, this video shows all kinds of people willing to wash dishes for $8 an hour.You'll see Latino Americans say they are willing to do so. You'll see White Americans willing to do so. Young. Middle aged. One with a masters degree.

"I'm desperate," a young woman says. A middle-aged woman says if she were younger she would look for yard work but is happy to wash dishes. "A job is a job," says Vince Flores, who refuses to be embarrassed about wanting a job that the elites of America sneer at.
