Posted on 05/01/2006 11:38:22 PM PDT by Rockitz
Today's protest was purportedly designed by organizers to demonstrate the economic impact of a day without immigrants. Certainly, here in LA there were massive protests, but trade continued at a fairly brisk pace from my observations. BONUS: The freeways had the lightest traffic in years.
I'm a broke student, but I managed my $105 for the day. Splurged a little at the grocery store, truth be told.
I spent about $600 on office equipment (scanner, new shredder, printer cartridges, other supplies) I've needed for awhile but never got around to buying, or just stocking up on things. Then I bought two pairs of shoes. Hey, I'm a girl!; shoes are essential.
Probably by a bunch of illegals.
Doing the work that the other illegals wouldn't do.
A little over 90...groceries at Walmart (muahahahaha) and then a pair of jeans at the Levi's store.
Unfortunately, I think the jeans were made in Columbia.
I did my share but the stores were as full as ever and a lot of them were hispanic.
FReeper son Skywalk spent almost $300 on tires.
I paid about $200 in bills - does that count? : )
Good on you.
My kids made out like a bandits today. Breakfast and dinner out with Dad. A couple toys they don't need and new sleeping bags for a planned camping expedition (to the back yard). I made up a list of stuff last week that I could justify buying and have been saving today.
I wanna slap Bush every time I hear him tell that lie.
Well, I didn't buy anything today, but I bought a Samson Condensor Microphone yesterday - and I marked May 1st by spending a couple of hours playing Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter on my X-Box 360 which, given that the campaign is set in Mexico, was a particular pleasure.
I went out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which I don't usually do, gassed up my car, which I could have done yesterday, and did my grocery shopping, which I'd usually do later in the week. Oh, yeah, I did everything I could to show my support for the boycott. :=)
Spent about $100 and got tired. The wife did much better then I did. I think she spent several hundred after work. To tell the truth, my anger against the illegals was too much to be out long. I am not going to jail for anger or violence.
My wife and I went out and first had dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. They were open and not showing support for this madness.
Next, we stopped at one store where we spent $65 for merchandise and stopped at another where we spent $75 for even more merchandise.
Dinner was $25
That protest thing by the illegal aliens was today?
Fortunately, I am nowhere near any parasite nest (city) so I kinda forgot about it.
I suppose I made the usual daily expenditures, though - - lunch, gas, cigs, ammo....
By the way, what day does sinko duh my-oh fall on this year?
I'm not telling. Gramps will find out and I'll be in BIG trouble.
HA! I was wondering how many people thought about that. We bought a "John Deere" from Lowe's - $2,482.92 with tax. I also talked my father-in-law into waiting until Monday to purchase his "shifter cart" (???) which he said cost several thousand dollars.
I'm broke, but I was able to scrounge up around $60 to spend.
I went out for two meals and gassed up the car.
Friday. This Friday.
Spent $60 in Phoenix. I too am a totally broke student. Got computer junk at Comp USA, toiletries at target and dinner at the Greek restaurant near me, owned by LEGAL immagrants (who make a darn tasty gyoros I might add).
History Channel reran Iwo Jima and today the FR Foxhole returned for a reprise of Bougainville--with patriots facing dug in machine guns it's all the more disgusting that the potomac bottom feeders are all politicos sans cajones.
Let's have an arrogant-illegals-stay-home-day every Monday.
The Internet was a lot slower today. I figure the illegal network admins had been doing work that white people won't. Other than that, I noticed nothing today.
...work Americans won't do.
They've changed this to, "doing work Americans are'nt available for."
Spent money at the supermarket, dry cleaners, lunch (Chinese), and dinner (American)
Most, if not all, of the taquerias were closed, so piss on them.
I spent $240 on a new digital camera and a 1GB memory card.
Spent $110 at: the pharmacy, SEARS and VONS market (including cash back *g*).
The peacefulness of the day was priceless.
Yor 'usual daily' expenditure for ammo?? I really love that thought. :=) (I should probably buy some more tomorrow.)
I'm not telling! (One of you might tell my husband.)
I spent about $400 above and beyond the usual. Most 'frivilous' purchase was a new stereo for my 'beater' off road vehicle. Also picked up a larger American Flag for the front of the house... Made in America (NJ) amazingly enough!
I spent about $15, plus my health. (I'm disabled with a disease that stays barely under control only if I do absolutely nothing... I can go out of the house from time to time, but if I do, there's a high probability I'll spend part of the next day sick in bed.) I live in the non-Hispanic part of San Pedro (LA harbor neighborhood) and checked to see which of my local eateries would not be getting my business ever again. Our favorite Mexican restaurant was indeed closed, as also was a cafe/grill that makes everything fairly well. So we ate at the second best Mexican place, which was open and will be getting more business from us from this point forward.
Only about $46 all told, but I did find a couple of local Mexican restaurants to never go to again.
I bought a new 4 wheeler, ATV, and a new tractor. Not a huge tractor, one about the size of the old ford 9N. It is a full sized 4X4 that runs 40HP. I've been looking at both for a long time and just decided today was the day. I ordered a couple of implements for the tractor. A very large tip trailer/manure spreader, a set of disks, and a bucket set up for the front end. With all that power equipment I can do some of that work that Americans won't do for my friends and neighbors and I'll do it for free.
About $400: at Hechts (Mothers Day presents), Dicks Sporting Goods (ahem, small metal projectiles in boxes of 50) and Giant supermarket (red wine in copious quantities while a pro-immigrant demonstration was taking place next to the parking lot).
Well, I had to get a brake job for my car today, so I took it to my local mechanic, who is a Chicano. He was, bless him, open and because he was slow today (he gets a lot of business from other Latinos and said he thought he wasn't busy because of the marches) he finished my car in no time. So I chipped in 135 bucks against the boycott and to a Mexican-American business owner who defied the madness. Makes me feel warm all over.
I boycotted Taco Bell.
Hubby and I signed the contract (and paid the money) for a new sunroom and we bought lawn furniture. Total=$28647.29
$3.50 on coffee.
if the freeways are empty, that means a lot of people didn't buy gas
For some reason, it always seems to fall on the 5th of May. :=) I think it's this Friday.
Somehow, I think a lot of us gringos won't be celebrating it at our local Mexican restaurants. You want a day without illegals?? Fine, try a month or two without customers!
$350 on ebay for a DVD/VHS recorder with HDMI upconversion.
$200+ for plumbing/electrical supplies.
$150 on two 5' Dwarf Hinoki Cypress [it *is* May Day, ya know]
$44 on large pots for the shrubs.
Hubby spent a couple hundred on various body/paint supplies for the motorcycles...not sure of the exact total.
$6 for the June issue of 'American Iron'.
$8 for notepads.
[and another $8 on Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips]....LOL!
The illegals are just taking off the days Americans refuse to.
We also ate at an Italian restaurant where the owner, a black man, informed us that "he didn't have time for that illegal mess". Everyplace was busy. I think most everyone, "Gringos", were doing their part.
We did go around and post notes on the doors of 3 Mexican restaurants that were closed, telling them we wouldn't be back.
Greetings from West Africa.
I wonder if there are statics on how many illegals did not pick up their welfare check on may 1, how many did not go to emergency clinic, the number of hit and run accidents, stabbings, muggings etc.
It would be interesting to compare may 1 2006 to a typical day in CONUS.
I have resorted to washing my car (Lexus) at a car wash where I use the sprayer and foam brush and can usually clean the car for $3. We have a vaccuum in our garage. So, I also gain in the calorie burning department! I have a difficult time watching the automated businesses abuse of labor so I rarely support them (At one location I get a free wash with oil change).
Some of our local liberal restaurants closed and got media coverage. "Couldn't get flower deliveries and afraid of low employee turnout." Ha! A day without flowers on their tables would just be too much to take! Probably most of their waiters needed new piercings or tattoos!
We had a wonderful dinner party for 5 and I splurged by serving prime rib eye steaks.
I went to see United 93, saw some real American heros.
I went out and blew about $160 at the Lowes Garden Center. I figured they would be hurting most, except for maybe Home Depot. And I just can't work up any warm fuzzies for Home Depot, no matter how hard I try.
