Ann Coulter is controversial, and she is a bomb thrower, but she was unstoppable today on Hannity.

Her book Adios America sounds like a good read.

We are heading for a third world hell hole.

Seriously, Lighthouse is Sean Hannity, right? Maybe a producer on one of his shows?

Feels more like O'Reiley to me. You know he's a conservative, but there's this undercurrent that he might be in on the joke.

Regardless of their intention, the statistics show a different story, and it is not limited to illegal aliens.

Apparently illegal aliens (Hispanics) are unique in the sense that they can be characterized in the aggregate as having this positive trait. Of course any negative trait, or something that could even be perceived as being negative, that was applied to most or all of them would be met with charges of racism.

Great Scott, suited, that's a very insightful comment.

The talking points are: nation of immigrants, hard worker, great people, socially conservative, etc.

The reality is public schools are overrun with Mexican children; the disfunctional socialist country to our south.

Minnesota and Wisconsin are training camps for Somali terrorists.

And we are becoming a shanty town of runaways and "economic" refugees.

And I think the perception of them being "hard workers" stems from an experience of having some of them work for you, or seeing them working for someone else. Well yeah, of course the ones who are making themselves available for manual labor are going to be perceived as hard workers (and that perception might be true). What about the ones who aren't soliciting work?

All white men are hard workers!

That sounds ridiculous. Nobody would ever make such a claim.

All Hispanics are hard workers!

gets a golf clap from the media/left. Somehow this group of people, regardless of their upbringing, criminal background, values instilled in them from their parents (or lack thereof), are blessed with this superhuman work ethic.

I don't think there's many Somalis in Wisconsin; maybe a small number in Milwaukee but I can't say I've ever seen them. And the ones in Minnesota head off to Somalia or Syria for training camps, they don't do it here.

Oh sure. They enjoy America's prosperity and then go and off-shore these jobs!

YAY! Cheap foreign workers for business, and votes for Dems!

Massive win for all!

ORLANDO, Fla. — The employees who kept the data systems humming in the vast Walt Disney fantasy fief did not suspect trouble when they were suddenly summoned to meetings with their boss.

While families rode the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and searched for Nemo on clamobiles in the theme parks, these workers monitored computers in industrial buildings nearby, making sure millions of Walt Disney World ticket sales, store purchases and hotel reservations went through without a hitch. Some were performing so well that they thought they had been called in for bonuses.

Instead, about 250 Disney employees were told in late October that they would be laid off. Many of their jobs were transferred to immigrants on temporary visas for highly skilled technical workers, who were brought in by an outsourcing firm based in India. Over the next three months, some Disney employees were required to train their replacements to do the jobs they had lost.

“I just couldn’t believe they could fly people in to sit at our desks and take over our jobs exactly,” said one former worker, an American in his 40s who remains unemployed since his last day at Disney on Jan. 30. “It was so humiliating to train somebody else to take over your job. I still can’t grasp it.”

Disney executives said that the layoffs were part of a reorganization, and that the company opened more positions than it eliminated.

But the layoffs at Disney and at other companies, including the Southern California Edison power utility, are raising new questions about how businesses and outsourcing companies are using the temporary visas, known as H-1B, to place immigrants in technology jobs in the United States. These visas are at the center of a fierce debate in Congress over whether they complement American workers or displace them.

People on H1-B visas can't vote.

They can have babies, and those babies are automatically U.S. citizens thanks to the gross misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment. And those U.S. citizens will become workers on the vote plantation.
