Want some more real world Mikey?
Mexican that claimed to be legal with papers, SSN etc, worked for employer x. Mexican claims injury on the job.
Mexican hires corrupt doctors and chiropractors who take him off work for weeks...
Mexican drives to work one day after being off for about 2 weeks to pick up his pay check. Go in, gets his check then leaves, walks back in 5 min later and tells employer x his car was stolen from the parking lot.
Mexican then sues employer x for not providing adequate security for the parking facility. This is lawsuit #2.
Guess what happened? Mexicans vehicle was located a week later at his cousins garage, as they were stripping it, and selling for parts.
Guess what? It is then discovered Mr. Mexican had his vehicle insured for theft in 5 different states with 5 different insurance carriers for theft. Turns out he was in country illegally too, with bad papers.
Want more "real world" experience Mikey?
I got tons. Let me know.
Securing a job by fraudulent means is clever and industrious?
Pointing to the exception and claiming it is the rule is rule #1 of the demagogue.
With hard examples like that how can one argue?
Gosh! I give! UNCLE!
Poor Employer X....
"Welcome to Costco, I Love You!"
This type of PC nonsense has to end. One way to do it is have one day out of the year where derogatory remarks can fill the airways. That will calm things down until the American people once again gain their strength
dragnet2 said: 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.
Thane_Banquo specifically stated LEGAL Mexican immigrants, the only type of immigrant BTW, illegals are not immigrants. Read carefully before you respond to a comment. I do not have any issues with legal immigrants, no matter what country they are from, I worked for years with a Mexican who tried his best to pass the citizenship test and finally made it. He worked harder than most of the US born citizens we had on the crew and I should know, I was the foreman.
Save your comments for illegals and leave the legals alone, they don't deserve it.
BTW, before he passed the citizenship test he had to go back to Mexico once a year, he hated doing that and constantly talked about the oppression he suffered when he actually lived in Mexico. He votes republican and I would bet he voted against Bozo in the last election. His children speak only English, he wouldn't let them speak Spanish.
So, you and your idiotic comments can kiss my a**.
But he says this sort of stuff all the time. He’s been calling them “crimaliens” for years.
So Mexicans are more clever and industrious than Americans is your point.
I understand why your reading comprehension scores were so low in High School.
My point was that if fake urine is as available as fake SSN#, why then is it that only non-Americans benefit?
It was sarcasm to point out that Mexicans pass the drug tests, not because they are More clever, but because they do not take illegal drugs.
At least not when looking for a job.
I’m outraged. I just sent an e-mail to Jay and to WTKK.
Thanks for posting this, rr.
Read the responses.
For every legal Mexican, as I said, there are 300 illegal Mexicans. The legal ones work no harder than anyone else. Ya want examples of green card crimes? Let me know, they are endless too.
BTW, if ya thought I was going to pay you 20x more money immediately, you'd work a littler harder? lol...
Some of these poor people coming up from Mexico are tuned into freaking slaves by greedy employers. Surprised? Some of these poor slobs think employee benefits mean a 5 minute break.
I've had a belly full of the, "They're all hard working, better than American" BS.
Many criminals are clever and industrious.
Can’t stand the man. I only listened occasionally several years ago, but stopped because he was just silly.
I’m going to e-mail them, too. Oh no, they have Curtis Sliwa on subbing for him.
I don’t need to read the responses, I was replying to your response which had nothing to do with legal immigrants. The person you were responding to was talking about legal immigrants, not illegals. While I hate illegals, yes I hate them, I will not vilify legals, regardless of which country they come from. If you are tired of hearing about illegals, fine, address your remarks to people talking about illegals, in the meantime my original comment to you stands, and I will add that you sound like an a**hole of the first order. Thanks for listening.
I know! As soon as I realized he was filling in for Jay, I turned off the radio.
If he had said the same stuff against Dick Cheney, he would be a hero to all liberals and be up for a promotion.
Hmmm, Sliwa just announced that Severin will be back tomorrow.
Hey asswipe you don’t know a damned thing about me. GFY
Doggoned shame when you can’t share your feelings.
I thought that’s what Liberals were all about - us opening up and sharing our inner selves with everyone....
Yup, I tuned in and it was Curtis “Raspberry Beret” Sliwa
though I don’t know whom will fill in for Jay in the near
future—depends how long he’ll be benched.

WTKK benches Severin for the swine flu rant
by Mark Schnyder
WTKK 96.9FM announced today that it suspended station’s afternoon talk show host Jay Severin for calling Mexican immigrants “criminaliens” and emergency rooms “condos for Mexicans” during a discussion about swine flu this past Monday(4/27).
Severin wasn’t on the air on Thursday as nationally syndicated personality Curtis Sliwa(heard on WTKK from 10pm-1am) was subbing for the suspended host and hosting the 3-pm-7pm show from his NYC studio.
According to an audio clip of a Monday show obtained by Boston Globe, Severin complained that the US wasn’t doing enough to prevent the spread of swine flu. He then said “tonight we will let the usual 5,000 criminaliens that come across the Arizona border ...” referring to Mexican immigrants.During a conversation with a caller who was a healthcare worker complaining about immigrants receiving health care, Severin said emergency rooms had “become essentially condos for Mexicans.”
(Ed. Note : WTKK suspended Severin in the wake of outcry in the Hispanic media after he made his on-air comments on Monday’s show. But what makes this case seem strange is WTKK’s management which stood by its syndicated morning foul-mouthed bore Don Imus and his pack of laughing hyenas when they got into trouble over making racial jokes about Rutgers University women’s basketball players in April 2007, but two years later they’re distancing themselves from Severin and muzzling him for an indefinite period of time. Normally when a station or radio company suspends a personality for offensive content, it immediately issues a formal apology to the offended listeners/parties. Strangely, WTKK( or its parent company Greater Media) is yet to issue one. As you recall, Severin and Imus got into a well-covered public spat at last month’s “Kiss Me, I’m Imus” event at the Wilbur Theater where Imus threatened to shoot Severin.(BRW 3/19). I smell a rat...or is it a swine?)
Severin who posts on the station’s blog almost daily didn’t make any comments today.
I’m sure Jeff will be back, at least as a fill in host for Howie, etc.
Though the Herald claimed he would be out again (today, Fri).
Earlier this week, I heard Severin make some cryptic comments about Imus. Something along the lines of Jay having some information about him that nobody else at TKK did. He said he wished he could divulge it, but maybe at a later date he might be able to.
The first thing I thought of was that Severin is suing him and maybe will get a condo out of it like Howie did.
Thanks for the info. I’m out past 495 and can’t get anything but WTKK, WEEI and a Rhode Island station. Thank goodness for FM radio.
It’s just perfect for addressing you.
LOL! How funny. A pea-brain like you telling me what I need to do.
No I wouldn’t. Pea brain is to the point and everybody understands it. Bird brain fits ya too.
You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think.
Maybe when Felon Finneran bites the dust,Jeff will get that slot.
Qui suam imprimere cupiunt formam, labem solum relinquunt
"Suam" est sum. Et "relinquunt" est reliquant.
Not having translated Latin since Virgil’s Aeneid 37 years ago, I am a bit rusty.
But here goes: Qui suam imprimere cupiunt formam, labem solum relinquunt.
Cupiunt is third person of cupio, so Qui would be translated as (They) Who wish, (but Qui is singular and does not exactly match the verb which is plural). Formam is the accusative form of forma or appearance. Imprimere is an adverb: specifically. Labem is a minor disgrace, and is accusactive therefor the direct object of the verb relinquunt. Solum is the accusative form of solus which is a noun meaning the only one, (which I think you meant to transalte as “only”, but that’s English not Latin).
In short you have what we called in High School “Latinoid”
It is English in Latin words which are jiberish in Latin.
The sentence translates:
(They)Who long for their specific form, (They) leave a minor disgrace the only one.
Which makes no sense.
It like translating “Semper ubi sub ubi”, as Always where under where. In spoken English it means something, but not in Latin.
Its not Latin its Latinoid.
"Qui suam imprimere cupiunt formam, relinquere in mundo, labem mereant."
"Those who seek to leave a mark in the world, they deserve only a stain.
I put in the phrases you left out.
Sed cogito mea Latin malo autem est.
But I actually studied Latin, and you have Google. Your ignorance is obvious.
Is there anything sadder than an ignoramus?
You poor, poor excuse for a human.
