    I’d take this deal, if it means the Raza rabble rousers would stick a cork in it between September and July. Not likely, though.

  • Mr.White

    They just keep on empowering these illegal invaders from Mexico! Now you know why Hispanic illegal invaders walk around with a sense of arrogance and bravado second to none, as if they owned the place!

    Our elected officials keep telling them how great they are for violating our national sovereignty! For God’s sake…when does this insanity ever end!!

    –QD

    La Raza will NEVER rest as long as there are Whites to shake down!! May 5th is the large drunken holiday, Cinco De La Raza (all White Angelenos KNOW to stay off the roads that day) and September contains LA’s MOST important holiday: mexican independence day!!

    Last year there was a huge parade in September for Mexican Independence Day, down (what else?) Cesar Chavez Blvd. (formerly Sunset Blvd.), featuring Mayor VivaLaRaza and Jerry Brown. No English allowed!! This, in the same city that called off the St. Patrick’s Day parade in perpetuity due to a lack of funds.

    Yet, LA somehow found the $$$ to send City Councilman Cardenas’s sister and brother-in-law to Mexico to exhibit low- rider cars at a cost of $50,370!

    The City of Los Angeles is home to at least 1.6 million immigrants or 40% of the population. August is immigrant pride month.

    Los Angeles is an impoverished Mexican outpost!! How much do these destitute immigrants cost LA? Add it up!! ALL of it — $600 million for welfare and food stamps; $500 million for public safety (mostly jail) $500 million for health care. That is $1.6 billion per year not including the billions spend futilely trying to educate illegal immigrant children and anchor babies.

    Or as Walter Moore puts it: While you are laboring to pay taxes that go straight to illegal immigrants, the illegals are laboring in hospitals to pump out more welfare ATMs that you fund.

    Yeah, why would I want to leave California? Why would I want to go to a place without a Car Tax, a State Income Tax, lower property taxes, lower sales taxes, lower utiltiy fees, and no state gains/inheritance taxes? What would I do with the extra $$$$?

    SOMEONE has to pay for EBT cards so mexicans can eat out at fast food joints and drive with impunity on our highways drunk, without insurance, a license or registration while Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck makes sure his officers do not tow the cars of illegal immigrant drivers just because they don’t have driver’s licenses. Chief Beck, making LA safer, said: “it’s the right thing to do!”

    When/if I do leave the Beholden State, I won’t bother to turn off the lights –in fact, on my way out I plan to throw the switch on every light and electrical vampire I can find and open up every water spigot full blast.

    The question is this: where would I go? The entire country seems to be the “New LA”, there’s NO escaping!!

    Make sure to put your mexican flag out in front of your home to show how proud you are to live in America.

  • Shawn (the female)

    What, are they wanting to cut it down to a month from “Illegal Immigration Pride Decade”?

  • Alexandra

    Personally I’d take the “Day Without Immigrants”–365 days a year.

    That being said, I’m all for declaring a moratorium on immigration, and let in extreme cases–like Boers getting out of South Africa. Then after the dust settles, go back to a pre-1965 policy.

  • Mark

    Personally I think we are getting exactly what we deserve.

    These people have not strong armed America away from us.

    We have served it up to them on a silver platter.

    And now we have mobs of blacks attacking whites because they are white and we still seem to worry more about who will win Dancing With The Stars than saving our own lives and those of future generations?

  • SloppyVomit

    I was born in Los Angeles and have lived here all my life. It’s true the place is loaded with immigrants – in fact my parents immigrated here after the second world war. But I would argue that these immigrants maintain the enormous wealth generated by those lucky enough or smart enough to take advantage of it.

    “Los Angeles is an impoverished Mexican outpost” Hardly. If Los Angeles were a country it would be the 16th largest economy in the world. I live in a modest neighborhood in the heart of it all – where the average home price is 1.2 million. Los Angeles has the 2nd highest number of millionaires in the country who call this place their home. Not really the picture of destitution some people want to believe.

    The sense of devastation felt by many whites is irrational. In fact, I would attribute most of white bitterness to an inability to compete. As manufacturing jobs left the county, the easy money was not to be found. Enter the entrepreneurial immigrant; the Korean store owner, the Latino produce vendor, the Chinese restaurant owner etc… These people work 16-18 hours a day, 6 days a week, if not 7. These people add to the economy by paying rent, eating food, and buying gas etc… The wealth of Los Angeles is generated not by overfed white collar workers in search of a comfortable desk job, but by business owners and landlords who need a growing population, even an illegal one, to sustain them.

    In addition, there is an enormous amount of family wealth that has been generated and passed on to subsequent generations through real estate. As one drives through Los Angeles, each apartment, office building, medical complex etc. represents a family who is continuously profiting from one of the largest real estate developments in the world – backed by an ever increasing population of immigrants.

    As for the cost? Let’s work with the number of a previous comment: There are 1.6 million illegals who receive 1.6 billion of services. I don’t know if these numbers are accurate but let’s assume they are. 1.6 billion divided by 1.6 million is $1,000.00 annually per immigrant.

    If an immigrant receives $1000.00, it is likely they spend much more than that in their community. For example, if a person receives food stamps, they spend it in their grocery store. The owner of the store pays employees, property taxes, rent, utilities etc. At the end of the day food stamps are in fact a government subsidy to grocery stores, restaurants, and their landlords. Any other money an immigrant has goes to rent, gas, utilities – expenditures which benefit the asset owning class of society.

    I can understand how many whites feel left out. But most of them were looking for the safe haven of a secure,risk free,life-time job. Now that those jobs have evaporated, this same segment of society feels undermined and displaced. I have come to the conclusion that those who feel left out of the economy of Los Angeles never took the risks to be apart of it, and are not beneficiaries of it.

    Those of you who feel that immigrants are a plague are not fortunate enough to receive an income from them. Those of us who benefit from an immigrant community do completely understand the value which they represent.

    Immigrants will continue coming to this country and they are not going to leave. Doesn’t it make more sense to become a beneficiary of this phenomenon rather than a frustrated victim who does not know where to go?

  • passingthru

    SloppyVomit, your comment is a pile of sloppy vomit. The rich foreigners you praise are making money off the backs of poor foreigners. And thanks to having “protected status,” no native dares to confront their slave mongering unless they want to be branded “racist.”

    I’ll be leaving L.A. in less than a month. You can keep this “immigrant” paradise all to yourself. I’ll have a good belly laugh when California crumbles into the Pacific Ocean.

  • To the Vomitorium

    I would attribute most of white bitterness to an inability to compete.

    White inability to compete?

    Compete with hoards of low IQd, uneducated immigrants for 10/hour jobs? — jobs that used to pay a lot more before immigrants flooded into California? Yeah, right.

    Few if any new jobs are created that require only a high school degree or less, yet most immigrants are either high school dropouts or have a high school education.

    As for high-paying jobs, Whites are being pushed out, not left out, by greedy companies that hire lower-paid, lower quality H-1b visa holders from Asia. Don’t tell me these Asians are necessary. We Whites put a man on the moon and invented the modern world without any help from Asians.

    Here is a list of companies ruined or almost ruined by low-quality H-1b holders: Comment #13: http://goo.gl/weoGg

    But most of them were looking for the safe haven of a secure,risk free,life-time job.

    Nope. Immigrants, legal and illegal, are looking for Free White Money. This will become increasingly difficult as California’s tax base continues to shrink.

    In cash-strapped California, higher taxes have just stifled the private sector, motivated corporations to leave and strangled job growth. The economic pain is not shared equally. While private-sector workers have lost over a million California jobs since the recession began, California government employment has increased by 1,200 jobs.

    California now has more a million fewer taxpayers, many of whom have seen their incomes compromised.

    These people add to the economy by paying rent, eating food, and buying gas etc…

    These types of activities do not grow the economy. Immigrants, legal and illegal take out FAR more than they put into the system, not including the FACT that many work under the table for cash and then collect fat benefits on top of it!:

    Thanks to a careful and exhaustive research report by Steve Camarota, Director of Research at the Center for Immigration Studies, entitled ‘Immigrants in the United States, 2007: A profile of America’s Foreign-Born Population’ we learn that

    Of adult immigrants, 31 percent have not completed high school, compared to 8 percent of natives. Since 2000, immigration increased the number of workers without a high school diploma by 14 percent, and all other workers by 3 percent.

    The proportion of immigrant-headed households using at least one major welfare program is 33 percent, compared to 19 percent for native households.

    The poverty rate for immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under 18) is 17 percent, nearly 50 percent higher than the rate for natives and their children.

    34 percent of immigrants lack health insurance, compared to 13 percent of natives. Immigrants and their U.S.-born children account for 71 percent of the increase in the uninsured since 1989.

    If California’s economy were thriving and California offered a “wonderful, educated, ‘diverse’ workforce” why are businesses fleeing the state instead of rushing in to set up business here?

    Dateline June 2011:

    Companies are leaving the ‘Golden State’ in record numbers this year. In just the last two years, the number of companies leaving California has accelerated more than five-fold, from one per week in 2009 to 5.4 per week this year, according to California relocation expert Joe Vranich.

    The state of California is becoming legendary for creating the most anti-business climate in the country because of its high taxes, excessive regulations, forced unionism, and bloated public sector.

    Here are a few of the “joys” dirt poor, uneducated, low IQd immigrants have brought to Southern California:

    *Carnage from uninsured, unlicensed, drunk drivers on our highways.

    *Gangs, the vast majority of which are composed of hispanics, many illegal:

    A substantial percentage of young illegal immigrants end up in gangs. U.S. authorities say that there are now over 1 million members of criminal gangs operating inside the United States. According to federal statistics, these 1 million gang members are responsible for up to 80% of the violent crimes committed in the U.S. each year. Latino gangs made up primarily of illegal aliens are responsible for much of this violence…According to the Center for Immigration Studies, some of the most notorious gangs in the country are made up almost entirely of illegal immigrants….

    *Hospital closures — 84 so far as hispanics use emergency rooms as primary care

    California now ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.

    *Ruined schools that are mandated to provide bi-lingual services to illegal immigrants:

    The larger educational gap in California is caused primarily by the high concentration of immigrants from Mexico and Central America, who tend to have much lower levels of educational attainment than other immigrant groups.

    This high concentration of low-education immigrants in the state has supplied California’s businesses with a large pool of unskilled labor. Few if any new jobs are created that require only a high school degree or less, yet most immigrants are either high school dropouts or have a high school education.

    There is also the quality of life issue as California’s is deteriorating every year.

    Where do you get off writing such garbage? I have never read such a pile of vomit in my life. Who do you think is going to support a massive, expanding, non-productive welfare class? Is it OK with you to have your salary taxed heavily by the government so welfare users can have large broods of children they can’t feed? Don’t think the government won’t come after your wealth, they will, your house and property too, everything you’ve got. The unwashed masses too will turn violent when the EBT cards stop working. Count on it. There is a good reason homes in LA are being fortified and entire neighborhoods disappearing behind iron gates with 24-hour armed guards.

    Those “overfed” white collar workers you sneer at are the very ones who created the once-viable, once-thriving economy of LA, back when LA was majority white, safe and clean, the very conditions that attracted the likes of you along with hoards of Third World welfare leeches and the foreign businessmen who prey on them.

    Or, as Margaret Thatcher put it: “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

    The type of Third World immigrants flooding into LA are life-long, multi-generational welfare users in perpetuity. The next generation is also uneducated and not moving off the dole, neither is the third generation. Eventually something’s gotta give.

    People vote with their feet and whites and businesses are leaving due to unfair taxation, schools ruined by the Third World and a decreasing quality of life.

    Welfare users do not create viable economies as they take out far more than they put in. They also destroy the quality of life as many are crime prone, belong to gangs, come from dysfunctional families and have slovenly habits such as drunk driving, using the streets and gutters as garbage depositories and bathroom floors as a place to throw used toilet paper. Have you ever seen one of LAs once-pristine beaches after a “Day with Mexicans?” The trash left on the sand is unbelievable!

    Wealth is not created by those who utilize food stamps, Section 8 housing, EBT cards, are MediCal users, work in make-work government jobs or by those who parasite off of them. Wealth is not created by those who work for cash under the table and then receive massive government benefits. Poor, non-English-speaking immigrants who are uneducated, unintelligent, crime-prone and spawn large broods of children do not create wealth. And government does not create wealth.

  • Sloppyvomit

    I’ll start at the top:

    I’ll be leaving L.A. in less than a month

    The reason you are leaving is because you don’t have an economic stake in the area. If you had a business, income property, or a decent job, you’d be staying and enjoying the best climate in the nation.

    Compete with hoards of low IQd, uneducated immigrants for 10/hour jobs? — jobs that used to pay a lot more before immigrants flooded into California? Yeah, right.

    If you are competing for a $10.00/hr job against an immigrant, the immigrant has you beat from the start. He can live cheaper than you. Let’s be clear: the immigrant comes here with a sixth grade education, does not understand the language nor the culture, has a lower IQ than you, and has not had the benefit of a higher education, nor does he come here with excess capital to invest – and he is taking your job? My friend, the problem is not with the immigrant but with your job. You don’t need to compete against him. My dentist, lawyer, tax accountant etc has not lost his job trying to compete against Juan the gardener.

    If you, with all your superiorities are simply trying to get by on trading labor for income, sorry but you lost. Try trading intellectually.

    Also, if you owned the business that was paying the wage, you wouldn’t see this as competition or even a threat. You’d see this immigrant as a source of labor (profit) or as a potential customer (profit) As I stated earlier, your looking for an easy job where you can trade labor for income and as you see those jobs evaporating you feel displaced. Become an owner, take the risk, and your outlook will change.

    I stated “These people add to the economy by paying rent, eating food, and buying gas etc…”

    These types of activities do not grow the economy. Immigrants, legal and illegal take out FAR more than they put into the system, not including the FACT that many work under the table for cash and then collect fat benefits on top of it!

    The U.S. economy is driven by these activities. In fact our economy is 70% consumer based… activities such as buying food, clothing, gas, cars etc do in fact grow an economy. If you owned the gas station, grocery store, restaurant you would see this clearly. Again, become a part of the owning class and you’ll understand.

    I think my point is best illustrated by the fact that business owners in Arizona have recently petitioned their legislature to overturn SB 1070. Since the immigrant exodus, business has left the state; stores are closing and letting their legal employees go; commercial property owners are going into default at an unprecedented rate; apartment owners are risking foreclosure due to impossible vacancy rates; even the state itself has noticed its sales tax revenues drop. I am sure there are those in the state that are thrilled with what has happened, but still it has been bad for business.

    Is it OK with you to have your salary taxed heavily by the government so welfare users can have large broods of children they can’t feed?

    Salary? There’s your problem. You are coming from the mindset of a job oriented individual. Try to imagine your statement from the point of view of a grocery store owner. He is delighted to see more mouths to feed. Do you think the manufacturer of diapers or infant formula would disagree with me? They are thrilled with the children of immigrants.

    Your confusing immigrants with social programs. Don’t blame the immigrant if the government is willing to send them money. And don’t blame the businessman if he is able to reap a profit from the situation… Blame your government.

    Let me break this down further. Any business needs to grow at a rate greater than inflation, otherwise it is a losing proposition. Since we are a consumer driven economy we need more consumers. In fact,we need to grow our consumer population at a rate of 5% – 6% per year just to keep up. (How else can our country grow its GDP at 5% after inflation?) The white population has not been able to produce at this rate. Enter the immigrant. In this sense he is a necessity. You may not like it, but the truth is, there is money to be made.

    As I stated earlier, if you are not receiving a benefit from the pool of immigrants, then of course you are going to be frustrated by them and will come up with any reason to despise them. But doesn’t it make more sense to understand the dynamics of what is happening and to profit from the situation rather than to run off not even knowing where to go?

  • Question Diversity

    You don’t need to compete against him. My dentist, lawyer, tax accountant etc has not lost his job trying to compete against Juan the gardener.

    Except one problem is that there isn’t much of a need for tax accountants in a place where most of the people don’t make enough money to be liable for income taxes. White accountants in Southern California are almost unheard of, not because of the Hispanics, but because of the legal immigrant visa holders from Asia.

    My personal assessment of you is that you are either extravagantly wealthy and therefore your personal wealth relies on the plentiful supply of cheap Chicano labor, or you’re on direct payroll of someone or some institution that is.

    One more problem with your theories expounded in your two posts: They make perfect economic sense. However, man cannot live on bread alone. There are some things which can’t be measured but are worth more than even a red-hot GDP growth.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    This is my final post on this matter because I don’t think I’m getting through to “sloppy vomit”

    Blame your government.

    You have no idea.

    If you are competing for a $10.00/hr job against an immigrant, the immigrant has you beat from the start.

    Nonsense. He does no such thing. He is only doing what he is allowed to do by a white-hating government that refuses to stop the massive inflow of unskilled labor. Denizens of the Third World bring the Third World with them ruining the once-great quality of life in LA with their overbreeding, gang culture, overcrowding and slovenly living habits.

    The white population has not been able to produce at this rate. Enter the immigrant. In this sense he is a necessity. You may not like it, but the truth is, there is money to be made.

    You are wrong and profoundly so. Whites created the First World Technology-based society that LA was once noted for, especially the aerospace industry. It WAS NOT built by Asians, Hispanics or Middle Easterners. By Whites.

    Whether you like it or not LA was built by Whites — the infrastructure, schools, economy — ALL of it. Whites are what made LA great, not hispanics or Asians or anyone from the Middle East. We took what was once a waste land and built a First World society with a thriving economy and first-class schools for ourselves and our posterity. All of it was done without the help of non-Whites.

    Was LA better, safer, cleaner, nicer 50 years ago or now? Were the schools better 50 years ago or now? Was LA’s economy better 50 years ago or now? Were the roads and infrastructure better then or now?

    What’s the difference? LA was majority WHITE then, run by Whites, unlike now!

    Immigrants are NOT necessary for the SoCal economy. They did not build it and, in fact, are tearing it down by ruining neighborhoods, schools and demanding government entitlements.

    And yes, I blame the government 100% but I have nothing but scorn and contempt for those who come here to parasite off of others, become government leeches in perpetuity and have multitudes of children that they can neither feed, clothe nor educate.

    Immigrants are a net drain on the economy. Period. I don’t know how many times I have to explain this to you. A. Net. Drain. They take out FAR more than they put in.

    The government refuses to seal the borders allowing a massive influx of unskilled laborers from Third World countries who don’t mind living 25 to a single family home.You have no idea how much I blame the government for ruining LA.

    The U.S. economy is driven by these activities. In fact our economy is 70% consumer based… activities such as buying food, clothing, gas, cars etc do in fact grow an economy. If you owned the gas station, grocery store, restaurant you would see this clearly.

    Again, welfare parasites, the unemployed and the US government do not create jobs, small businesses and manufacturing do and the LA government is doing its damndest to stifle job-generating businesses via overtaxation and regulation. Immigrants, legal and illegal do buy food clothing gas, etc. but this does not ameliorate the FACT that they take out far more from the economy than they put in.

    Economies are NOT grown by those making $10/hour, and especially not by those taking out far more than they’re putting in.

    As of March, the unemployment rate was over 12 percent in LA county—the third-highest unemployment rate of the nation’s 20 largest metro areas.

    Job losses, too, were more severe in Los Angeles than in all but two of the nation’s top ten urban areas. Between 2001 and 2011, the number of jobs in the county contracted by 7.1 percent.

    And finally, the situation in LA is unsustainable as LA’s productive class, businesses and tax base flee, replaced by overpaid government workers, the unemployed and low-skilled welfare parasites. Like the US economy, built on a false fiat currency, the economic situation is not stainable in the long run.

    At some point, the EBT cards will stop working as LA’s government finally runs out of money to support its massive immigrant welfare population. What then? Violence, and lots of it.

    Even though I do not agree with you, I wish you well if you live in LA and hope that your home is fortified and you are able to defend yourself. I live outside of LA, hopefully far enough away from the coming riots.

    These riots will make the Rodney King riot look like a Sunday school picnic.
