Bah, who needs that pesky 1st Amendment, right?

Wonder what he said? I listen to Jay alot, but wasn’t listening today. He goes off about criminal aliens all the time.

Nobody is saying what these allegedly wicked words were.

Hard working? You'd work harder too if you could cross their border, and come up here and take someone else's job and immediately earn 20 times more money.

Ya want to see how hard they really work? Go down to Mexico, and have a look around.

Its important to make that distinction. Conservatives who don’t aren’t doing us any favors.

Selection bias. The ones who come here legally are coming here specifically because they are the kinds of people who work hard and are industrious. That isn’t rewarded in their backward banana-socialist homeland.

Damn hard working lot, and risk takers too. Exactly what America needs.

They are also naturally Conservative: Distrust Government, believe in family first, Church goers, antiabortion, anti-gay marriage.

First amendment prevents the govt (specifically the Fed govt) from abridging your right to free speech. Doesn’t say your boss can’t tell you what you can and cannot say while at work.

Not sure if he’s on today (I have Howie on in the background, myself, and only found out through a post on the radio-info.com board). The comment may have been earlier in the week.

Recently Jeff Katz filled in for Howie. He has done fill-ins for Jerry Doyle and was on WRKO years ago; when he got to RKO he said he had been fired in Calif. for joking about illegals
(he said Taco Bell should give out prizes to people for running over illegals, IIRC)

I never heard of him, but then I’m not in Boston much. Thank God!

Nothing wrong with Mexicans imho, but I hate illegal immigrants of ALL stripes.

“Wonder what he said? I listen to Jay alot, but wasn’t listening today. He goes off about criminal aliens all the time.”

Jay Severin, the fiery radio talk show host on Boston’s WTKK-FM, was suspended today after calling Mexican immigrants “criminaliens” and emergency rooms “condos for Mexicans.”

The ones who come here legally are coming here specifically because they are the kinds of people who bla bla bla..

Look, you know as well as I, for every legal one that comes here legitimately, there are 300 illegals.

Why come here legally, wait years, when you can just walk in and get hired by the greedy employers, that love low wage labor?

You think employers would rather hire a legal, or hire an illegal, for a fraction of the money? Get real.

>>Doesn’t say your boss can’t tell you what you can and cannot say while at work.

The example I like to give is, What if you got hired as a WalMart greeter and told every customer who came in, “Welcome to WalMart. F-— you.” Your boss walks over to you and says to stop it. You say you won’t and keep doing it.

You are fired. My first amendment rights (!!!!) :)

Vote for Democrats, throw their used toilet paper on the floor and have sex with their daughters.

Yup. People get confused about exactly who the Constitution is talking about.

Mexicans, people who were born to clean

Maybe it had something to do with this?
