Now it’s official. The food police are officially deputized. Badge and everything, I suppose. The city of Baltimore, Md., has hired a food czar, according to the Associated Press. The position is only part-time and is being funded by a group of nonprofit organizations with the goal of feeding people.
I wonder if he gets a badge?
If you’re looking for a job, illegal immigrants are willing to give you theirs, says a report from CNNMoney.com. It even made it on Comedy Central’s "Colbert Report" last night. The United Farm Workers, the union representing migrant workers in the U.S., has pledged to give up its jobs for any unemployed American who is looking for work. Say what you want, this a pretty good gimmick.
Stop giving out welfare/unemployment checks and the illegals will be run out by the American job seekers. Personally, I'm sick of paying people to sit on their couch eating potato chips. The only thing they drag their fat butts out the door for is to go vote Democrat so they can get a raise.
