  1. Florida is not getting my vacation money. Will be lucky to visit the local hot springs (discharge from the power plant) to enjoy a break this winter (unless security drives us off as potential terrorists)

    Thanks Obama, while you enjoy your weekly vacations the rest of us are eating soup and scraping for winter school clothes for the children.

    Hope = FAIL
    Change = Much worse than before

    There, I said it!
    10 points for getting the new amerikkkan political correctness right!

    Such bravery Balls and truth in unbiased, speak the truth, modern economic racial analysis!
    Shall we have a race war now ?
    Should only first or second generation Hispanics be deported?

    Unemployed ?
    Need a real job opportunity. picking vegetables ,or as a waiter?
    Has the Tea party got a low pay shovel ready job for you!

    40 years ago when American corporations were getting the bulk of their profits from the profits made in discrimination against the Blacks, while not economically exploiting Whites , any economic problems were often blamed on “lazy blacks” ,crazily demanding equal rights in pay, thereby unfairly threatening to cut into the privileges of the hardworking more “super-productive” unionized Whites and corporate profitability.

    But after some struggles and organized fightback Including by the Black Panthers and even the Nation Of Islam ,it is no longer politically correct to talk like that about Blacks in America today .

    When American companies actually began to pay equal wages to Blacks too ,high waged American industry became unprofitable for employing either Black or White workers.

    The importation of “Hispanics’ as illegals was not just by Democrats, but a bi-partisan policy for many years . Creating economic wages competition with Americans in order to cheapen all wages.

    But , Supporters of the American system ,are in denial that their system is bankrupt, now demand a new ‘racial’ scapegoat.
    Real Political correctness in racism is now to attack and blame ‘Hispanic” as “Ilegals”as the reason why things have got bad .

    Even though Blacks And Hispanics are now the majority in the Armed forces.

    So, a not so brave, “There I have said it” comment from a probable ‘whitey”?

    Your attack on Hispanic labor, not on cheap labor employers ,is in practice an economic diversion in order to defend the “cheap labor” Hispanic ‘race” exploiting racist elite of business and wall st.
    Do you really believe that The American ruling elite ,now needing these millions of imported cheaper labor workers for its industrial profitability and military ,could not even control its own borders and social security ID system ?
    Even with modern widescale surveillance system and Homeland security?
    When things get too tough Amnesties are arranged by either party in power.

    The "free loaders" who ruined American capitalism were not the Hispanic illegal sector of american labor, but the mostly White Elite and banksters on wall st (pay attention right here, probable “Whitey”) that exported most physically wealth productive industrial jobs out of America ,leaving only mostly unskilled services jobs .

    In the end after the civil Rights movement even “super-productive” white Americans had to send out their wives away from childcare and home to work. But ,Two workers,now Debt Peons ,could not supply a decent standard of living without living on credit.
    Even the Taliban do not think much of that system for economicaly exploting their women .
    They would rather keep them as housewives looking after their children!

  8. i've been drinking bird nest soup every night (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it's supposed to be good for complexion.

    i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.
