...and God help you if you're a Mexican living in IL. You're lucky if you get out of bed that day.

Hey, I resemble that remark.

Don't know about Detroit but here in the land of Boeing some of these union clowns will brag about how little they can get away with doing at work.

"I hid out all day and then went to get my free medical!"

Had lunch with Scott Carson (CEO of Boeing Commercial Aircraft) about a month ago; he's not anti-union, he's anti-assclown.

Shiat, if it weren't for the Mexicans nothing would get done in IL.

America may or may not run on Dunkin, but Illinois most certainly runs on Mexikin

Quick! Someone link to Media Matters proving it isn't true!

Isn't the transportation secretary boss from Illinois, By way of africa by way of hawaii etc...

But if you debunk a HuffPo story with a Media Matters story, won't that destroy the universe?

But I thought Mexican drug lords were stepping up their game with grenades!!elevendy!!@! Also, illegal immigration is not a lazy venture - if they're making it all the way to IL, they're walking really freaking far. That's dedication, Kyle.

If the "John McCain called his wife a coont" story didn't get any traction, this one certainly won't. One guy's word against another.

But this is connected to Obama in some fashion.

We'll get 7 more greens about it before the day is over.

Hey, I resemble that remark.

What? You from Lombard or something? I work with one of those Lombardians. The only time he picks something up is when he needs to "borrow" (see "steal") one of my tools. Jerk. At least he buys beers, so there's that.

Obama's administration keeps fecking up. Just like Joe Biden did the other day when he said the fundamentals of the economy are strong.
 
2009-03-19 01:37:07 PM  
Between this and Biden's racism, I am starting to see the change we can believe in.
 
2009-03-19 01:37:29 PM  
Everywhere I go I here, the people here are lazy and work slow. When I was in Kentucky it was the "good ole boy" working slow, when I was in NYC it was the lazy city gov't, in Detroit/Chicago it's the unions...

/just like the fact that kids today are worst than when I was a kid

Ask Daley. Apparently, Fitzgerald is thinking the same thing.

if they're so lazy, why are they willing to risk life and limb to illegally cross the border just so they can spend all day bent over picking crops under a sweltering sun?

It's a circle jerk of fail. A rare specimen indeed, but curiously, right around the time that another rare species The Democratic Administration appears in this countryside the Circle-Jerk-of-Fail blossoms and begins to bear fruit. In a few short months the leaves will wither and fall off, but the plant will not die. No, it will merely lay dormant until the next time we can spy that elusive creature: The Democratic Administration.

Come on Ray as a downstater you should know that Chicago does not equal all of Illinois.

Tell that to all the Southern IL denizens who work in the STL Metro area and take our JORBS!!!

Ray LaHood needs to hire some Mexicans to do some landscaping work on his eyebrows.
 
2009-03-19 01:57:47 PM  
Mexicans are hard workers. I see no reason to insult Mexicans workers when insulting Illinois workers.

"Mexican Americans don't like to get up early in the morning
but they have to so they do it real slow.

Mexican Americans love education so they go to night school
and take spanish and get a B."

Lando Lincoln: I would comment, but I'm very busy today. Very very busy. Can't talk now. Have to go.

I feel like fail.

Mexican Americans don't like to just get into gang fights,
they like flowers and music and white girls named Debbie too.

Mexican Americans are named Chata and Chella and Chima,
and have a son in law named jeff.

Mexican Americans love their Nana's and their Nono's,
and their Nena's and their Neno's........ Nano Nano Nena Nono!

Mexican Americans don't like to go to the movies where the dude has to wear contact lenses to make his blue eyes brown cause don't it make my brown eyes blue.

Mexican Americans like to answer telephones and say hello to whoever's on the other side...

Who is this?

God's Hubris: Obama's administration keeps fecking up. Just like Joe Biden did the other day when he said the fundamentals of the economy are strong.

www.terminally-incoherent.com

He didn't say that, a jumble of clips from a speech he gave were rearranged to imply that he said that.

/Is originally from Illinois
//Yes, the majority of the people are that lazy
///But there aren't as many Mexicans there as people joke about

I assumed God's Hubris was being sarcastic. Was I wrong? Should I not have done that?

Perhaps people who live in the City or the collar counties are incredibly lazy... I don't see it downstate, though.

/lives in downstate Illinois (Rockford)
//yes, I know Rockford is further north than Chicago.

I like how some submitters "desperately" insert Obama's name into news/headlines that have absolutely nothing to do with him. Just like "Oo, something less than ideal happened to someone somewhere! Tack an 'Obama' on it somewhere and hit 'submit.'"

GMAFB already.
