(Kroger's) Ralphs supports "Awareness Day" (KABC's Doug McIntyre exposes internal memo and urges act
KABC RADIO, Los Angeles ^ | dfu

Posted on 05/01/2006 7:52:24 AM PDT by doug from upland

KABC's Doug McIntyre is all over the support of illegal alien day in Los Angeles. He is urging listeners to send in their Ralphs cards, and he will send the bundle in for cancellation.

=========================================================================

Ralph's Supports "Awareness Day"

"I have heard that many of you are concerned about the ongoing national debate regarding potential changes in our country's immigration laws and policies. We also believe that law-abiding and hard-working immigrants deserve fair treatment and an opportunity to enjoy the American Dream. We support plans that give immigrants and their families opportunities for citizenship, including legislation that does all of the following:

- Provides qualified undocumented immigrants now in our country a way to earn legal status

- Increases control of our borders

- Provides for a temporary worker program

- Creates an enforcement program that imposes effective penalties for employers who violate the new laws"

"If you are considering participating in 'Awareness Day' on May 1, I encourage you to tell your supervisor or Store Director in advance so that we can make arrangements to properly serve our Customers."

"As you make a personal choice as to how you participate or support this Awareness Event, please conduct youself in a manner that supports our strategy and keeps our business growing."

For a while many have been calling on going after employers for hiring illegals, laugh but we dont need to if the illegals will go after them for us.

These strikers are exposing which business are hiring fraudulently documented and illegal workers, and the strikes will hurt the illegal employees and the business if they loose revenue, not the US tax payer. We save money!

Hopefully the losses will hurt these business permanently so we can rid our nation of this type of tax payer subsidized illegal-black market-labor practices.

"Qualified" means "people's whose land was stolen by those dirty, stupid Gringos who are now granting us 'rights.'"

Thanks for posting this, Doug. I was just warming up my fingers to do so as well. It's hard to type when your blood is boiling, isn't it?

A little additional info...br The internal memo, dated 4/19/06, was generated from Ralphs PRESIDENT, Dave Hirz "to all TEAM RALPHS members." His fax # is (310) 854-2505 and email addy is DaveHirz@Ralphs.com. (He was ratted out by one of the disgusted Ralphs workers who faxed the memo off to Doug McIntyre.) Maybe FReepers would care to communicate their thoughts on the matter? Personally, I'll be sending my Ralphs card off to Doug McIntyre so he can bundle and forward it off to Dave with the others he receives. California Ralphs shoppers, send your cards to Doug! I'll dig up the address and post.

I've shopped at Ralphs my entire life - they are one of the last chains left to double coupons - but I have officially shopped my last Ralphs shop. I plan never to step foot in this joint again.

The nerve of this company. As Doug pointed out, they were only too happy to shut out the American workers during the big strike last year. Now as long as they can get more and more illegal help (apparently a very high percentage of "Team Ralphs" employees), they are only too happy to support the little people.

Now it's off to do a big shop at Von's. Buy, buy, BUY!

law-abiding and hard-working immigrants

It is a "duct-tape" moment when "illegals" are specifically called out as "law-abiding"...

If they are abiding by the laws.......they are already in the process of becoming citizens. It's only the ones NOT abiding by the law who are the issue!

As opposed to illegal immigrants with bogus/forged docs?

Crap. I was going to stop in Food 4 Less when I was in town today. Totally forgot they were owned by Ralphs(and Kroeger). Frankly, I can't afford to shop at Ralphs. Stater Bros is getting a little pricey as well. #$%# gas prices : (

We do. Worked there when I was in high school. I already shop at the local mom and pop in my town normally, though. I occasionally go to Kroger. But I'll never go again.

Maybe you could put Kroger in the title so the rest of the country knows what company this is.

My letter to the idiot:

Dear Sir: I heard about the internal memo you circulated to all the illegal alien members of "Team Ralphs." Frankly, I had no idea Ralphs hired so many of them. Thanks for providing that helpful information.

Accordingly, I plan to never step foot in a Ralphs Market again. You have just lost hundreds of dollars a month of business from this former life-long Ralphs customer. I would NEVER patronize any company that supports these illegal law-breaking leeches and thieves with my hard-earned dollars.

In case you haven't gotten the point, you will be receiving my torn-up Ralphs' card in the mail shortly. Furthermore, I will be informing everyone I know about your memo, which is being circulated all over the Internet and talk radio. I'm sure they will also find it most informative. Isn't email wonderful?

I am now a Von's shopper and am planning a great big Von's shop for today.
As far as I am concerned, Ralphs can go to hell.

Sincerely,
(My real name)
A proud American CITIZEN and former Ralphs shopper

Would it be better to write to Kroger's board of directors and other major shareholders? Those are the people who will be hit hard if Kroger's stock tanks. Just asking. I really have no idea myself.

Yes. We must have a strict screening process to make sure that only lawbreakers qualify for the program.


You wouldn't want a law-abiding person to accidently slip through and get the massive benefits that are supposed to go to lawbreakers.

"Provides qualified undocumented immigrants now in our country a way to earn legal status "

Undocumented is a euphemism for illegal entrants. Illegal entrants are not qualified for anything except deportation.

I like this one:

"We also believe that law-abiding and hard-working immigrants deserve.."

"- Provides qualified undocumented immigrants now in our country a way to earn legal status"

So which one is it - law-abiding or illegal?
