Poor Senator Frist! He had no idea that his brand of hypocrisy would run headlong into the main engine of the Republican party – that’s the money machine.
Now the cultural elites of the Republican party – most of whom have never worked a day in their pathetic lives, are clashing with their usually obsequious shock troops – the local Republican businessmen and women across America. Why? Because of S. 2454: Securing America’s Borders Act.
I remember once, as I was working for a major national bank as a customer service agent, I often had to deal with branch managers. I received a call once from a Mexican field worker. His English wasn’t too good but I understood that he was very tired of being treated like a dog when he went into the bank to deposit his check.
I got on the phone with the branch manager and spoke with her a few minutes. Her problem with them was that they were dirty, smelly and often dropped bits of mud on the floor. Then I asked her:
Me: “What is XX Bank’s deposit limit for preferred customers?”
Manager: “Well of course it is $5000!”
Me: “Please pull up Mr. Martinez’ account”
Me: “Yes, I think a balance of $7900 qualifies Mr. Martinez for preferential treatment, don’t you?”
Of course there are problems with immigrants. When haven’t there been problems with immigrants? The Native Americans had a HELLUVA time with those bastards from Britain and Spain! But eventually they nearly died out and got over it. Now they take billions of dollars from us happily, every year! See! It all works out in the end…
I have worked back-breaking “menial” labor when I was the only “white” guy on the crew. All I can say is that the vast majority of the men and women I worked with were kind, friendly, unbelievably hard working, loyal, and fair-minded.
Which is a helluva lot more than I could say for the BIG Republican businessman that routinely underpaid the workers. The immigrant workers would come to me with their checks, when they realized they could trust me, and I would dutifully go to the bookkeeper and point out the “error”.
After about six months I found myself out of a job…
