INS Gets Results

This email fabrication & teapartier wet dream (checked tickled me mainly because the unfortunate brown people's litterin'-disrespectin'-dope smokin'-drug traffickin'-felonious-job stealin'-lazy good for nothin'-non English speakin'-illegal alien-scoundrels' white overlords Christ-like small business owners, exercising their God given right to chisel distribute their beneficent largesse upon the most desperate and vulnerable economically viable labor, whilst blissfully confoundedly unaware of their workers questionable residency status, got miffed, pissed, and flummoxed at the absentee worker results of this little neighborhood prank.

h/t Arove:

I have a friend who is president of his homeowners association in the Dallas , Texas suburbs. They were having a terrible problem with litter near some of his association's homes. The reason according to my friend is that six very large, luxurious new houses are being built right next to their community.

The trash was coming from the Mexican laborers working at the construction sites and included bags from McDonald's, Burger King and 7-11, plus coffee cups, napkins, cigarette butts, coke cans, empty bottles, etc. He went to see the site supervisor and even the general contractor, politely urging them to get their workers not to litter the neighborhood, to no avail. He called the city, county, and police and got no help there either.

So here's what his community did. They organized about twenty folks, named themselves The "Inner Neighborhood Services" group, and arranged to go out at lunch time and "police" the trash themselves. It is what they did while picking up the trash that is so hilarious.

They bought navy blue baseball caps and had the initials "INS" embroidered in gold on the caps.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand what they hoped people might mistakenly think the letters really stand for..

After the Inner Neighborhood Services group's first lunch time pickup detail, with all of them wearing their caps and some carrying cameras, 46 out of the total of 68 construction workers did not show up for work the next morning -- and haven't come back yet.

It has been ten days now.

The General Contractor, I'm told, is madder than hell, but can't say anything publicly because he could be busted for hiring illegal aliens. My friend and his bunch can't be accused of impersonating federal personnel, because they have the official name of the group recorded in their homeowner association minutes along with a notation about the vote to approve formation of the new subcommittee -- and besides, they informed the INS in advance of their plans, and according to my friend, the INS said basically, "Have at it!"

SO, FOLKS... (Gunga's editing notes: The original writer goes on blathering for days with the usual "Proud to be a Privileged White Teabagging God Fearing-Taxpaying-poor-put upon-American" claptrap)

Jesu!, but Gunga prefer's:

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Miss Me Yet II

Some time ago we mentioned about some Republican wasting his Daddy's dollars on a billboard:

And how enamored we were with a liberal radio station's response:

But nothing beats honest-to-god graffiti (and lovin' the pornstache)!

This is my 1st orchid. I am determined to save it.

Provided that Miss Kitty does not eat it!

Are Todays GOP Lying Morons? Case A: Michael Steele

I'm not saying all Republicans are Lying Morons. But we can pick up some evidence from their leaders.

GOP Gasbag Chairman Michael Steele on Afghanistan (You know, the country that harbored those who actually attacked us, and the war that was started and grossly mishandled under W Bush for seven years):

"Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama's choosing. This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."...

"It was the president who was trying to be cute by half by flipping a script demonizing Iraq, while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan.

Liar? Yes
Moron? Yes

H/T, nod and a wink to Boston Betty who called my attention to the latest gas emission from this idiot
