In other news, 23 baggage handler positions just opened up at O'Hare airport. Great benefits, immediate start date. Illegals need not apply.

A.) Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!

FTFA: Ideal Staffing officials did not return a telephone message left after business hours Wednesday by The Associated Press.


Because they're all in prison.

The discrepancies were first noted in March by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspector, Fitzgerald said.

Nice timely work there, boys.

SHOCK, SHOCK, SHOCK... doesn't anyone fix things anymore?

It's OK, they were just Mexicans.
 
2007-11-08 12:49:18 AM  
Was that wrong?

Should I not have done that?

Are you sure they weren't towel-heads?

I'd put money on the table that those 23 were working harder than the average TSA worker at ohare.

I'd put money down that people at Wendy's are working harder than you so what's your point.

Is there such a thing as a Mexican towelhead?
 
2007-11-08 12:56:11 AM  
Yep. We're definitely safer now that we gave away those rights and freedoms.

Is an illegal alien with a fake ID considered undocumented?

Only when they're mowing the lawn, etc. It gets hot sometimes. That reminds me of a joke I heard once...

"Mexicans used to own Texas ... Now, they mow it."
 
2007-11-08 01:02:34 AM  
When I use to work there Mexicans were rare at O'hare
 
2007-11-08 01:03:11 AM  
They must have been working in the part that's not in the US.

KC Critic: Yep. We're definitely safer now that we gave away those rights and freedoms.

Do you think these people should have the right to have fake security badges? I suspect it's likely that someone's privacy was disrupted during this investigation.

FTA:

Mary Gurin, 36, of Carpentersville, and Norinye Benitez, 24, of Franklin Park, were each charged with one federal count of harboring illegal immigrants for gain and one federal count of misuse of Social Security numbers. They were scheduled for a preliminary appearance later Wednesday in U.S. District Court, Brown said.

We need a 50-year mandatory prison sentence and immediate forfeiture of all business assets for assholes like Ms.Gurin. The workers should get to keep their earnings and be deported.

as a cracker, i speak from experience that being a ramp rat is a manual labor job where you just show up, throw & move shiat, and go home

my classic example from working the ramp:

on my first week there, 10 of us on duty sat down at the break table. all but one of us spoke spanish.

/too obscure?

AHHAHAHAHHAHAHA. Comedy gold.

What the hell were illegal immigrants doing in this country, anyway? Did they get lost on the way to some tourist destination? It's almost as though they thought that they could easily find work in every single sector of our economy, from temporary work for private households to long-term employment by huge corporations to contract work for the federal government itself. But that can't be right, because if that were true, our economy would collapse without them and all this immigrant-bashing wouldn't make any sense at all.

Weird, I know.

Well handling baggage sure ain't picking oranges ....Hate to mangle an analogy comparing oranges to baggage....but isn't one of the lines they feed us is hey the illegals only take low paying jobs no one else wants......I thoght airport jobs were well paid with great benifits and highly sought after employment?

Five illegal workers were indicted on Tuesday for using false social security numbers. They worked in the cafeteria at the Richard Bolling Federal Building in Kansas City, Mo.

Phew, can't believe the U.S. almost let illegal immigrants get away with having jobs, that was close.

I am soooooo TSA, ask me and Ill answer your innermost questions.
 
2007-11-08 01:40:34 AM  
Meanwhile I have to take my ID out of its vinyl window thingy in my wallet so that the TSA'hole can shine their fancy blacklight on it.

ID does not equal Security.

Why is the TSA in the Airline Revenue Protection business??

As far as racist, cruel jokes go, that was funny as hell. 31 years here and I can't believe I haven't heard that.

2007-11-08 01:49:32 AM  
remember, it's not important that we're actually safe, only that we feel safe.

so keep that water off the plane.

Your not lazy, just dumb, see html helper goodness. dummy.

Oh, I see the buttons, just felt like typing. Lazy, stubborn and dumb. And tired and kinda drunk. Out.

That means they saved 23 planes from flying into buildings, yes?

If we outlaw fake security badges, only outlaws will have fake security badges.

Sooner or later I am going to have to mow my own lawn!! If that happens I am writing an angry letter to the local paper!!

At least Wendy's requires some degree of social skill for most of its employees. Judging from my experience with the TSA (and that of many, many other people), it is almost a job requirement for a TSA employee to have a shiatty attitude towards the public.

I am sick to death of our crooked, manipulating, bribe taking government. The failure of a government to care for it's people,which it taxes to the point of bankruptcy, is not a democracy.

Neither republican nor democrat politician can be trusted to do the right thing.

None of the things that a Government of The People, and For The People are happening. More and more it is becoming impossible for a two adult, working, educated couple to live beyond paycheck to paycheck.

20 years ago a painter could support a family of four nicely, comfortably. Now a nurse and a painter cannot support the same family.

When billionairs pay 15% income tax and teachers are taxed at 30%, their is something very broken.

The electorial college should be abolished. Congress and the Senate should be under the same rules as any other federal employee, who is not allowed to take gifts or money.

The failures of this government are too numerous for them to continue to be in power.

///whew... it felt good to rant
