Trump the magic braggart

September 4, 2015

by Anna Morris, Co-Editor, Freedom Fighters of America

Trump the magic braggart...(Democrat at heart and by action)...Lives to deceive...(says he's running for office so he can)...Live in a land called DC.

      "I hire lots of Hispanics", said The Donald. Then he broke into one of his sing-songs, "I love them, they love me..."  He quickly becomes the magic braggart in the incarnation of Donny the Purple Dinosaur with the weird comb-over and a nauseating, cloying song aimed at the kindergarten level, low information voter mentality: I love them, they love me, we're one happy family. [1]

     Never mind he said some of the illegal Hispanic immigrants are rapists, criminals and thugs, or that he plans to make Mexico build the Great Wall of Trump on the southern border. In the end he has to nullify those comments by insisting he hires lots of Hispanics. What's he really saying? I'm against unlimited immigration, but there are lots of ways around that? Worse yet, may we translate his comments to mean:  I really prefer hiring Hispanics to hiring American citizens? 

     In an article in The Guardian one of Trump's workers on the DC post office job is quoted as saying, "I have many legal immigrants working with me. And many of them come from Mexico." [1] Legal immigrants. Everyone wants to talk about ILLEGAL immigrants because, well, if they cross the border illegally, no matter how much the Democrat Party and its sanctuary cities welcome them, technically they are law breakers. If they steal something, or perhaps find a loaded, cocked gun in a sack at the park and accidentally kill a young woman like Kate Steinle, they are criminals acting like criminals and everyone can be righteously indignant and furiously angry, demanding the law do something.

     Nobody has the guts to talk about legal foreign national Hispanics stealing jobs American citizens of all colors, including Hispanic-Americans, need. Stealing is an inappropriate word here because these foreign Hispanics, mostly Mexicans, aren't actually stealing anything. But I suggest our fellow citizen employers who conspire to hire them rather than citizens ARE stealing money from the pockets of American citizens, and at times bread from the mouths of American children, and they have been doing this for at least four decades.

     Before the mantra of, "There are some jobs American citizens just won't do," it was real quiet. The only time a citizen knew about it was when jobs were scarce and citizens were denied the only jobs available in some cases because Mexican "crews" were contracted to do the work. Forty years ago out west here it was all Mexican "crews", brought here on an unbreakable contract that guaranteed them work no matter how much citizens begged for those jobs.

     My first ultra personal experience with this was in the 1970s, and without an internet in those days, on which to complain, I have been more or less quietly seething inside ever since. In fact I have a few mental glitches I can't seem to get over, the main one being what the amnesty pushing liberals love to call "food insecurity". Nearly forty years later I am financially secure, but I am never positive I will have enough to eat and even if I do, I worry about others who are hungry. Years ago I grieved for months after I saw a train hit a herd of deer and I couldn't get governmental permission to field dress the meat to feed the hungry. The meat was wasted while I knew people in that community who struggled to get enough food because there weren't enough jobs. 

     I had married young but a crazy aunt broke up the marriage so at 19 without much experience, I held what are now called entry level jobs. My boss at a nursing home had made it plain that sexual intercourse would be part of the job description if I expected to keep working. This was before the term sexual harassment was coined and before women sued for this sort of thing. I foolishly quit, leaving a message with a four letter word used as a verb~one of the first times in my life I had ever used a word like that~and my boss' name taped to the time clock.

     In the late 60s and very early 70s it had been fairly easy to get minimum wage jobs. (Minimum wage at that time was about $1.35 and waitresses could be paid 75 cents an hour while tips of nickles, dimes and pennies equaled about $5.00 per shift.) Unfortunately for me, the Oregon town where I lived had one of the first environmentalist driven job crises. Environmentalists had closed an aluminum factory for fear water emitting from the factory might raise the temperature of the Columbia River by one degree or something equally stupid. (I have also been firmly anti-environmentalism since then.) Workers displaced from the factory had all the usual minimum wage jobs filled for miles around.

     Any savings had long run out and there wasn't much food left on my pantry shelves in a day when soup could be bought for as little as 10 cents per can, when a friend told me a certain fruit orchard was hiring pruners. My friend knew the orchard's owner and was sure I could get a job; the friend said to call Saturday evening and use his name. Real hope; I had past experience professionally pruning trees and I was young and strong.

     The orchardist had contracted all his jobs to Mexican "crews". How I hate that word "crew"! I always write it in quotation marks, when it applies to foreign workers, to emphasize, because nobody can hear my sarcastic, disgusted snarl when I write. Polite but firm, he didn't care about my experience. He was sorry. No, he couldn't add me to a crew. There was no room for me. He had signed a contract that guaranteed ALL the jobs to the Mexican "crew". Couldn't break his contract. Eventually I cried. He was sorry but he couldn't break the contract.

     It was a few years before I was a journalist and when I started writing I would never write about this episode in my life. There was something shameful about being hungry in America, I thought. Raised in a middle class family I had ignorantly believed everyone in America had SOMETHING to eat, yet after I learned that Mexican "crews" had contracted rights to jobs I was not allowed to have, I experienced starvation. Grilled cheese sandwiches affect me to this day, something like communion wafers taken at church. Though I was too ashamed to tell anyone I was starving, a friend invited me over for a "snack" of grilled cheese sandwiches and one sandwich was the biggest meal I had in one week.

    (The injustice ate at my soul and I invented the food bank in my mind. Pre-internet, pre-writing career I had no one with whom to share my idea, but I knew there had to be some place where food would always be available for hungry people, and that food waste was criminal. It was many others plus gleaners who really invented and put into practice the food bank movement.)

     Enough about my experience. God gave me many talents and a few years after this I tumbled into journalism simply because someone thought I could write.  In the end I have been fortunate, though I will never in my deepest soul believe there is enough food or that there are enough jobs with which to earn money for food. Mostly I do not believe there are enough jobs because many employers, just like Donald Trump, hire Mexican and other Hispanic "crews" rather than citizens. I have consistently told my girl friends in abusive marriages to stay where they are, because food and a roof over their heads is all it comes down to, and here in the west Mexicans have most of the  entry level jobs these women, if childless, would need to leave their battering husbands. 

     Beyond entry level, increasingly Mexicans do tax dollar funded road work. So much for all the blather about funding "infrastructure" to provide jobs unless the politicians are talking about employing and enriching Mexicans. Very recently construction jobs which used to be middle class work for American citizens are mostly done by Mexican "crews". I have seen this with my own eyes and very little research validated what I had seen, but that is a different story.

     All the candidates are begging for the "Hispanic vote" because somewhere along the line Hispanics, legal or illegal, English speaking or not, became a voting block to be considered, courted and pandered to. Under the best days of Barack Obama and his PC storm troopers, to say anything negative was to be a racist and a hater. Somewhere along the line Trump the magic braggart was given a dispensation to be allowed to break PC. Hispanics in construction bring us right to Trump's front yard specifically. 

     Ivan Arellano, a mason, was interviewed by the Washington Post while working on the DC construction site which will become the Trump International Hotel. In the article Mr. Arellano was quoted, "'The majority of us are Hispanics, many who came illegally," he said in Spanish. 'And we're all here working very hard to build a better life for our families.'" [2] Shades of Jeb Bush saying foreign workers and illegals are committing acts of love. Of course they are! But why are their "acts of love" so sacred that American citizens must go without? Since when is America an orphanage for the third world at the expense of our own? Ask the politicians.  

     On Twitter I retweeted something alleging Trump hires illegals. A Trumpkin swiftly attacked saying Trump hired legal immigrants, very much allowed by law. "Trump follows the law, imagine that'" the Trumpkin Tweep snotted. While there may be some question about how legal ALL of Trump's workers are (see article above and judge for yourself), I find no honor in Trump bragging about hiring what I believe are "crews". I'd bet if an American citizen begged Trump for a job he would say what the orchard owner said to me so many years ago; all the jobs are pre-contracted to Hispanic crews. In fact this kind of hiring disturbs me more than hiring of illegals because the employer legally hiring "crews" is covered with the shiny veneer of legality. Americans go unemployed or homeless because of these employers.

     The Chicago Tribune in January of this year has an article titled, "Teen unemployment remains stubbornly high, study finds." [4] It cites a Drexel University study that shows the current unemployment rate of teens, identified as 16 to 19, in Chicago is the lowest in the nation at 16%. Being more specific it states, "Chicago black teens have the lowest employment rate at 10.5%, followed by Hispanic teens at 21%."  Angelo Ross was interviewed, "At 18, he lives with his mom, eight siblings, and four nieces and nephews." Angelo, after hunting for a job for three years had just gotten a job as an intern at a fast food restaurant. "Thanks to his paycheck, he's been contributing $30 to $60 a month to the family budget," the article continues.

     OK, all you politicians, but specially you Mr. Trump, you who brag about managing all your own affairs and your billion dollar business like you do it all by yourself, how about doing something to train and hire citizens? How dare you go before the American voters and brag about how you hire Hispanic "crews" while young people like Angelo Ross struggle for a job! Bernie Sanders can blather all he wants about income inequality while ignoring the giant sucking sound pulling dollars to Mexico, earned by members of "crews" that take jobs from our own! Tell us, Mr. Trump, what are you going to do for citizens like Angelo Ross? Better yet, when are you going to apologize for hiring "crews" and ignoring citizens?

     I have a deep sense about injustice, real injustice, not the made up injustices community organizers use to further Big Government. I am not a hypocrite and I seldom complain if I don't think I have a solution. Employers insist they "need" foreign workers because "Americans just won't do some jobs'. (That garbage has been pushed down our throats so long that nobody seems to have a clue why our welfare, unemployment and food stamp rates are so high.) Until this mess gets figured out once and for all, the answer is simple.

     If an American citizen wants one of those jobs contracted to foreign "crews", the citizen gets it. A "crew" member gets dumped. PERIOD. American CITIZENS first. NO non-citizen has ANY so-called right to ANY job in this country. Contracts be damned! CITIZENS FIRST! Simple!

     After that, Mr. Trump, if you really want to say how good you are for Americans, why don't you take some of your billions and use it to train and hire young, unemployed people from across our nation? Call it the Trump School of Construction. Teach the Trump method of building. Call students the Trump scholars. It'd be the best in the world you know because it would have the Trump name.

      Mr. Trump, why don't you help young Americans like Angelo Ross instead of bragging about how many Hispanics you employ?  "Teenagers who work fare better later in life, earning wages 20 to 25 percent higher than those who didn't have jobs as teens," said Paul Harrington, an author of the report cited in the Tribune  article. Do you care enough about America to Invest some of your Trump billions in our own young people!

     Or is it possible, you Mr. Trump, and other candidates snuggling up to Hispanics, figure young people like Angelo Ross living with his mom and eight siblings will just swallow the income inequality line shovelled out by the likes of socialists Bernie and Hillary, that they will automatically vote Democrat anyway? Are these people your 14%, like Mitt Romney got in trouble for his comment about a certain 14%?

     No candidate that brags about what he or she is doing for Hispanics can count on my vote because when I hear  "jobs for Hispanics" I think of "crews" legally taking jobs from citizens. Lifelong politicians may know nothing more than how to get votes. You, Mr. Trump, actually build things you put your name on and you apparently, proudly hire Hispanic "crews" to work on your projects. And you brag about it to the unemployed who are supposed to vote for you! Put your money where your big mouth is and do something for the Angelo Rosses of the world. Then I may not automatically remember my past miseries and be so tempted to  come up with doggerel like:

     Trump the magic braggart...lived by deceit...and frolicked in the voters' mental mist until he lived in DC....
