I would encourage anyone & everyone to post this graph anywhere a discussion comes up about "$5 per head lettuce", or any of the other nonsensical sound-bites arise about how increasing wages for farm workers will drastically increase food prices. Farm wage increases will do almost nothing to the price. The bulk of the price goes to the profits of big Corporate agri-business, not workers.
Below is my own modified copy of the chart above, which was compacted & trimmed to fit the page.
from: The Declaration of Independence: "all Men are...endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights... to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted... whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it"
I wrote this email to Lou Dobbs last Monday night:
"You always show farm workers while talking about illegal aliens, Lou, while you report that only 11% of illegals are farm workers. Show them working the good jobs in construction, beside the Americans they are displacing."
Lo and Behold, starting that very day they are now showing more varied visuals of illegals in action. It didn't get mentioned on the show, but I got action.
It didn't hurt that I forwarded that thought to a guy I know, who works for Lou, and he passed it up the line.
I'd like to know what the average or medium pay is for jobs like construction today vs 10 or 15 years ago when there were very little hispanics doing those jobs. I'd be telling if they are getting paid less (adjusted for inflation) than workers were back then.
Reports show another 500,000 Americans lost their jobs in December 2008. Unemployment spiked to 7.2 percent. More home foreclosures! Trade deficits hit $700 billion again in 2008!
This past Sunday, I watched David Gregory, moderator for NBC’s “Meet the Press”. He interviewed journalist Thomas Friedman, economist Paul Gigot, Representative Newt Gingrich and two other illustrious experts. They discussed Obama’s economic stimulus package and how it would put Americans back to work on infrastructure construction projects across the nation.
Gregory said, “There’s more misery to come.”
They talked specifically how the package would put African-Americans back to work in construction.
“Knock, knock, hello, is anybody home?” I muttered to the television. “How can top professionals either be THAT stupid or naïve or fraudulent?”
Who do you think rebuilt New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina? Answer: illegal alien Mexicans, Central and South Americans! They rushed into New Orleans, commandeered the jobs, and spoke only Spanish while outbidding Americans on every construction project. Once they took over, they ‘colonized’ all the jobs by ethnic intimidation and language. A black or white American couldn’t get a job to save his/her rear-end.
With over 20 million illegal aliens within the United States, and, already entrenched in bridge, housing and city construction projects—who do you think will be pulling down the paychecks when the stimulus package hits the streets? Illegal Mexicans!
They will send white and black Americans into the unemployment lines, soup kitchens and homeless shelters.
Since half of those illegals work off the books for cash, again, taxpayers end up paying for educational, medical and incarceration costs of illegals’ families. Again, the $80 billion in cash transfers will supply Mexico and other home countries with our cash as they bleed us toward faster financial death.
Half way through, Mr. Gingrich noted that 5,000 people suffered death in Mexico from the drug trade in Mexico that spills over into the USA. Of course, our voracious drug habit feeds the frenzy. Also, after 37 years of the phony drug war, don’t you get a sickening feeling that our own high government officials slide their greasy palms across the money bar to keep it going?
But who really sends our citizens onto the unemployment rolls? Who voted for millions of H1-B, H-2B and other visas—to displace American workers? Who voted for insourcing, offshoring and outsourcing of our jobs? Obama and Congress!
Is it any wonder we suffer a $700 billion trade deficit and non-enforcement of our immigration laws?
Will Obama enforce our immigration laws any better than Bush? Obama voted for the June 2007 amnesty and to double legal immigration to 2.4 million per year—thus taking more jobs away from Americans. Obama will prove worse with his selections thus far in his administration: Napolitano, Solis, Salazar and other open borders sanctimonious ‘U.S.’ citizens leaders.
What results do you see across America? Obama and this Congress create two parallel societies, even three, if you count accelerating numbers of Muslims within the United States. None of them has any identity or affinity to our culture, language or society. Notice how they split our language while they split our culture into opposing sides. Notice how they call it ‘multiculturalism’ whereby we must back down our culture and our language and our success as a civilization in deference to the cultures they fled—illiteracy, poverty, failure and conflict. Notice whose tax dollars pay for all of it! Notice year by year our enormous new poverty class developing within our cities!
Who helps them? As I noted in my last column, just about every major corporation in this country aids, abets, assists and defends illegal aliens and mass legal immigration that will add 70 million, count them, 70 million more immigrants and their kids to this country within 30 years.
Everything, and I do mean, EVERYTHING, in this country of ours will not survive what we face. We will not be able to endure with the sheer numbers of human overload, the confusion of multiple languages, the breakdown of our school systems, collapse of our medical systems and, finally, our culture.
We won’t make it through the energy crisis, water shortages a dozen other dilemmas.
As Jean Raspail said in his, Camp of the Saints, when he talked about the juggernaut of immigrants invading France, “You don’t know my people—the squalor, superstitions, the fatalistic sloth that they’ve wallowed in for generations. You don’t know what you’re in for if that fleet of brutes ever lands in your lap. Everything will change in this country of yours. They will swallow you up!”
One look at France today shows that immigrants overwhelm France. France will no longer be a distinct language or group by mid century. Its immigrants will outnumber its citizens. Arabic will become the dominant language in France within 40 years.
Indeed, this mass migration from third world countries portends a contentious, overloaded and untenable future for the United States of America. Who did it to us? Our own presidents and Congress, along with tragic apathy by most American citizens.
“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin or preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.” President Teddy Roosevelt
Again, we will not survive the existence of parallel societies in our country. Call it Balkanization or human nature, but we head into a dangerous future. Ask Israel, France, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom and Lebanon!
Finally, Gregory nor any of his panelists talked about 20 million illegal aliens in this country—displacing over 15 million unemployed Americans. Further, none talked about the horrendous fact that our Congress imported 2.4 million into this country last year, all jobless, and this year, another 2.4 million will breach our shores.
Did I mention the fourth parallel society? Answer: millions of uninvited, illiterate, and extremely poor third world people, “Everything will change in this country of yours. They will swallow you up!”

This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on “Your Show” May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.

The Untold Story of American Workers Vs. Illegal Immigration
Posted on Monday, January 12 @ 15:09:21 CST Topic: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC Americans for Legal Immigration PACJanuary 12, 2009
by William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC www.alipac.us
Across America a terrible story unfolds trapping honest and hard working Americans between the proverbial rock and a hard space. It is a story that I have gleaned from conversations with those directly impacted. It is a story I have learned from reading between the lines in the print media.
Many of America's print media publications are now facing well deserved financial extinction due to their penchant for bias, censorship, and promotions of unpopular political positions, rather than reporting facts. No issue illustrates their heavy bias more than illegal immigration.
American readers are bombarded on a daily basis with the latest illegal alien sob stories about how illegal aliens are getting laid off, being profiled, discriminated against, or finding it harder to get licenses and government benefits from mean and hateful Americans, while the most important part of the story is conspicuously absent!
The Americans who are falling down in historic numbers are not in these articles or publications!
The propagandists at the newspapers should take heed, when I remind them of two important things. One, people read the news to learn the facts and not the asserted political positions of the paper. Two, readers look for characters in articles, as well as in movies and books, who they can identify with.
Americans are losing their wages, jobs, homes, health, and sanity in numbers unprecedented since the Great Depression, yet you will not hear their trials and troubles in your elitist newspapers. And if you do get a glimpse of the horror of your neighbors and fellow countrymen, you will most certainly never hear of what I will speak of next.
You will not hear about how illegal immigration is trapping Americans in a vise which is leading to the destruction of their lives.
I hope no one in America needs a lecture on how horrible losing your job can be when there are no other jobs available and that not being able to provide health insurance or even food for your children is a life threatening situation. Marching your belongings and loved ones out of your house in front of a Sheriff's deputy is a story Americans are living out in larger numbers daily.
Many studies tell us that American workers work harder, longer, and more productively than many others on the planet. We are known for getting the job done and done well. Before the recent political invention of "jobs Americans won't do" we got the houses built, the landscapes tended, the chickens plucked, and the bathrooms cleaned without 15 million illegal aliens in the country.
Here is the scenario and perspective you will not find in your newspaper that must be told to the nation.
It has long been a tradition in America for wage earners to take a menial job or an extra job, when times got tough for their individual families, a region, or during a national economic downturn.
If your husband was injured, the wife would take on an extra job waiting tables or as a cashier. If you lost your job, you would seek another one no matter what it was, as long as it would help you keep food on the table and a roof over you and your family's head.
In 2009, when you go to look for a new job of any kind you will find that many jobs are not even listed in the Want Ads because those jobs are filled with illegal aliens and a surplus of legal immigrants. The employers have no desire to spend money on newspaper ads, if they have an opening they just tell the foreman, ask their existing workers, or in some cases call up the drug and human importing cartels in Mexico to order a new shipment of illegal aliens workers, as was the case with Tyson Foods here in North Carolina.
So American workers are not even finding notices for many jobs in construction, landscaping, hospitality and food industries, agriculture, meat processing, textiles, raw materials production, etc...
And even if you do approach one of these employers, you may find yourself in the position that many ALIPAC supporters have reported.
The employers of illegal aliens and H2B visa immigrants do not want Americans in the mix. There is rampant discrimination against America workers because they do not speak Spanish, are more concerned about worker health and safety laws, and might contact Immigration and Customs Enforcement to report illegal workers and visa fraud.
Even if you did go out on your own to find the non-advertised menial jobs, and you made it past the discrimination factors, you still have two major hurdles.
One, multiple studies have documented the common sense knowledge that illegal immigration greatly depreciates wages for American workers and legal immigrants. As far back as 1968, the renowned labor leader Cesar Chavez patrolled the border and ordered his union to call Federal authorities to try and stop illegal immigration. Wages have been significantly depressed due to the intentional hyper inflation of the labor markets.
If you are a full tax paying and debt carrying American, many of these jobs now offer wages that are insufficient for you to even make ends meet!
But illegal aliens are not just in the menial jobs or unskilled labor sector of our economy. We have seen countless news reports over the last few years documenting illegal aliens working on commercial jet engines, or in nuclear power plants, or the technical fields?
With the almost minimal enforcement levels of our existing immigration laws, illegal aliens are working in jobs across the spectrum!
Anyone seeking a job in a call center or the Information Technology fields will find many of those jobs have been sent offshore to India. As for the jobs which remain here at home with Google, IBM, Microsoft, and many others, the positions are taken and being filled with H1B visa holders from India and China.
Our immigration laws should state that an H1B visa worker can only be used, if an American worker cannot be found for the position and if the immigrant will be paid the same as an American worker would. Unfortunately, these considerations are not required many Global companies are intentionally throwing out their American workers and replacing them with foreign labor that will work for much less!
And if you go out in search of an American small business that plays by the rules and respects our laws, you will find fewer and fewer of them. Honest employers who hire Americans and legal immigrants have found themselves unable to compete with the low bids of less scrupulous competitors who hire illegal aliens. You won't hear their voices in this barage of biased articles either!
Only through the valiant efforts of talk radio show hosts and brave men and women like Glen Beck, Lou Dobbs, and Michelle Malkin will you hear these voices represented in the media. And each of them faces the same threat of smears and lies from the ideology fascists for speaking out for the innocent American workers and millions of victims of illegal immigration, corporate greed, and political corruption in our nation.
So American workers are facing what I call "The Great American Replacement Act" where Americans are being replaced in jobs, homes, schools, colleges, and at the ballot box through rampant illegal immigration combined with historically high levels of new worker visas being issued.
To ad further insult to injury, the illegal alien Amnesty supporting groups and politicians are now trying to claim that even though 11 Million Americans are out of work, we need Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty right away for the approximately 7 million illegal aliens, which are currently holding jobs that our existing laws mandate are illegal for them to have in the first place!
How can so many politicians and people in the media ignore and neglect innocent Americans who are suffering and having their lives ruined? The dire consequences for Americans due to the bad economy combined with rampant illegal immigration are horrific. The fact that their stories are not told and their voices are censored by the print media is even more horrifying.
For things to improve for Americans, we need our existing immigration laws, and all workplace and financial regulatory laws fully enforced. Those left in the media with a soul need to illuminate these problems and side with the American public before it is too late.
We need to know how much the influence the billions of dollars in perks, contributions, and payoffs coming into Washington, DC (See Bill and Hillary Clinton) from Global corporations and countries hostile to the United States like Saudi Arabia and China are responsible for these dastardly, illegal, and unconstitutional policies.
The American public is no longer in control of our national destiny. We are no longer self governed or secure. We are not being asked for our support, we are being told we will suffer in silence or face aggressive ridicule. We are being dictated to by politicians who's pockets are lined with the gold of powerful bankers and foreign nations.
We are now entering an even more dangerous phase where many Americans are losing all faith in the political process. There is dangerous talk in private conversations, and many are saying "America has already been conquered without a shot fired."
Perhaps America's most powerful enemies have discovered how to take us with a Trojan horse? No adversary would want to take us on militarily or do anything to awaken the ire of the American populace. Our own politicians, bureaucrats, and Wall Street leaders have already deeply wounded this nation more than Osama Bin Laden's attacks on 9/11.
Perhaps they have moved on America's Achilles heal of greed and corruption to incrementally reduce the American populace to such a desperate level surrounded by financially empowered subservient foreign workers that we cannot defend ourselves.
If this is the case and if these atrocities are not corrected soon by political means, may God help us endure, survive, or prevail against whatever evil our conquerors have planned for us next.
