I got this question in my feed today and all I can say is “Be very, very, careful what you ask for because you just might get that blatant unvarnished TRUTH! She’s a bitter bitch too!
Whether people admit it or hide it, isn’t Trump absolutely right that ordinary Americans are now sick of African, Mexican, and Indian immigrants migrating to the USA and stealing jobs from American citizens?
Fair Warning: Be very, very, careful what you ask for because y’all just might get a real answer with cited #DamnedFacts to back it. This is one of those occasions.
I normally don’t answer questions with more than ten answers existing and I never answer questions which already have an Answer Wiki, but this one just screams for a harsh dose of reality from Asshole Man. I’ll try to avoid any Ad Hominem *Slips Lock off cage*
Now, preface: I can’t honestly blame Opie for not seeing the depth and breadth of the cesspool we call DC. So don’t take this personally. I’m seriously pissed too, but I’m pissed at the people who are actually causing the legitimate problem which Opie called out in their Question. ^^Any and ALL outrage you hear from me is not, Not, NOT directed at anyone here, not even Opie.^^ While the front loading on the Question is utter crap, Opie raises a valid question about where all our jobs went. And I’ll give a hint before we take off: The answer ain’t brown folk.
I am a Navy Veteran who has been called a “Radical Regulation Constitutionalist Son Of A Bitch” in a very affectionate tone by my Division Officer (a Lt.JG who came up through the ranks over 10 years). I am a Particular Sort of Asshole and I absolutely revel in it. I’m also on the Aspergers Spectrum which means that where y’all store your name/face recognition charts and your social rules processing is all open memory for me where I store facts and links about the events I’ve lived through. I have an absolutely insane memory which let’s me see patterns of actions across time in a way similar to how you see differences in a primary color wheel.
I am also the grandson of Norwegian immigrant grandparents who opened the first Norwegian Grocery store in Brooklyn, New York; and who built one of the most reliable heavy moving companies (Drayage) in 1940′s New York City. We go back a ways.
Gramps jumped ship in New York in 1931, got sent back in ’32 and returned legally as a Citizen in ‘34, after depositing a $2,000.00 surety bond “to insure the new immigrant doesn’t become a burden upon society”. They bought a brownstone in the Avenues of Brooklyn (between H and I) in the late ’40s and held a mortgage burning block party in 1970.. 8 years early.
I hereby challenge you to find ANY major infrastructure project built before about 1980 which wasn’t built by these immigrants you despise.
Those damned soulless gingers. Thanks and glory be to them.
The Irish who dug the tunnels for New York’s subway system
I challenge you to find any US grown fruits or veggies in your store which weren’t grown or picked by immigrants and the kids or grand kids of immigrants for a few fucking dollars a day (10 to 14 hour days of back break and bleeding fingers).
This damned south Americans who feed us ALL. Thanks guys for feeding us all! You ROCK!
Cesar Chavez: The Life Behind A Legacy Of Farm Labor Rights
I challenge you to find any US built product which wasn’t made for you by immigrants and blacks.
I challenge you to drive on a road not built by immigrants and blacks.

Slavery and Prison – Understanding the Connections
Do you live in a house or an apartment building? Yea, I fucking DARE you to look at who built that house for your comfort.
Look, it’s time for y’all to pull your damned head out of the Newspeak “news” media echo chamber and look at a few Facts here.
Immigrants did not take, and have not ever taken your jobs. They did all the scut work and the blood, sweat and tears work FOR you so you could live comfortable without having to do it all yourself. Yes, our jobs are gone but it was NOT immigrants who stole them.. bear with me and I’ll get there. You won’t like it though! Fair Warning.
Y’all ever pitched 70 pound bales of hay onto a 4 foot high trailer all damned day long (10 to 14 hours) for a week, in a 90° sweat bath with bleeding fingers and your everything itching like the blazes from the hay dust? I have. The blacks and central American immigrants I worked with earned my deepest respect. Nary a complaint anywhere, just “get it done so we can have a beer with lunch” and far more hump and hustle than I’ve EVER seen from a fellow cracker.
Y’all ever picked and roasted the hops or barley that went into your beer? Naw! Of course y’all haven’t! I have.. in my 50s just a few years ago. Y’all get one guess who was working with me.
Those guys busted ass, and I KNOW how to work.
Talk to me sonny. Tell me all about your “trials and tribulations.” Hell, I’ll even offer you a beer to cry in and a little girls’ pink lace hankie to blot your snot with… and then we’ll have a little talk about who REALLY stole your jobs and shipped them overseas where you can’t get to em.
Fasten your seat belts folks, this bitch is about to fly!
Y’all want to be MAD at someone for stealing your jobs Opie? GOOD, y’all damned well should be absolutely fucking furious. I mean Tar and Feathers Furious too. Be mad. You agree is dead on the money!
But let’s back up a hot second an make sure we’re all aiming our legitimate ire at the right people.
I’ve got a really ugly question for y’all, ya best sit down.
*when you finally see it*
Was it immigrants who bought the Hostess Bakery, gutted the workers pay and retirement packages, and then SHUT THE COMPANY DOWN AND SOLD IT OFF PIECEMEAL TO CHINA WHEN THE WORKERS REFUSED TO PLAY their shitwease “fuck you” games?
:} I don’t think it was immigrants.. but let’s have a peek, shall we sonny?
Union: ‘Bain-style’ killing of Twinkie
Oh OOPS! My bad! It was Myth Fucking Romney and his merry band of Vulture Crapitalists!
That little corporate fascist fuck Romney and his Bain vultures just cost you 18 THOUSAND of “your” jobs in one fell swoop. And that was just in ‘12. What’s that jobs thief been up to since then?! *cues Jeopardy Theme*
Are ya smelling that Gaslighting yet Opie? It’s thick! Check the list of tactics when you watch your Orwellian Newspeak “news” show (I’m talking to libs and cons here).
Am I getting close to theach bone yet? Here’s another slice:
Project Censored – The News that Didn’t Make the News and Why
Ok.. y’all say Myth is a bit too recent and too “partisan” for ya? Let’s back up a bit..
In 1994 Bush the Senior signed a memorandum of agreement on a little law called NAFTA.
Now if you’re a Myth Romney and The Shitweasles fan that acronym stands for North American Free Trade Agreement. I call it Now Americans are Fucked in Tha Ass. Why? Because unlike y’all I’m a natural born and bred cynic and I’ve seen nothing from either set of Party Brass in my 56 years to disabuse me of that, so when ANY politician does anything my very first question is “#WhoProfits from this shit?!”
Y’all get just one guess who REALLY stole your jobs!
Corruption is Legal in America
Here’s the funny thing though.. see Bush couldn’t quite get it through Congress because there were a bunch of “obstructionist” unicorn smoke blowing Dempublican Congresscritters who “couldn’t” sign off on it. SMH. This is where it gets “interesting”..
So… Slick Willie comes along, cosigned this Bush corporate Kakistocracy “trade” treaty and helped the Republicrats to not only ship 750,000 jobs off shore, but they also handed over our sovereign right to consumer protection laws to the tender corporate mercies (Bophol and Union Carbide anyone? ) of an extra-judicial process known as ISDR
NAFTA Cost U.S. 700k Jobs, Report Says
Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS): Extraordinary Corporate Power in “Trade” Deals
This last bit is why the corporate fascist rat fuckers are allowed to sell us possibly contaminated “food” from countries with a HISTORY OF POISONING US AND OUR PETS without telling us.
Where did that chicken come from?
Note the date folks. It was the Obama Administration Dempublican rat fuckers who did this one. #0Excuses on your #LesserEevil lies. Actions Matter! Words don’t.
Now ponder how many of your jobs we tossed in the shitter here, Opie. How much of those Chinese paychecks which WERE being spent here still get to be spent here?
The bottom line here is the Dempublicans and the Republicrats are using our “news” media to set us at each other’s throats with a giant game of Three Card Monte so’s we don’t start sitting across kitchen tables and talking brass tacks about the problems we’re ALL facing and what to do about it.
Are y’all starting to sniff what Opie stepped in yet?
Yea, he didn’t think the cesspool was quite that deep either. But that IS where the Shitweasles of both partys breed.
Peace y’all! Talk amongst yourselves.
