Minutemen Bring McCain Heads of Lettuce

Those of you who listen to John and Ken on the radio here in the Los Angeles are aware of the huge drive to send Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa toilet brushes. We also have Send A Brick.com demanding that congress build a wall on the border. The Minutmen in the following story are targeting John McCain with heads of lettuce.

McCain’s lettuce-picking remarks yield unwanted green

As he steered his Straight Talk Express across the United States in recent weeks, Republican Sen. John McCain has tried to stay a-head of the immigration issue. But Friday the immigration issue delivered 36 or so heads to his Phoenix office — heads of lettuce, that is.

McCain has been getting skewered in the media for comments earlier this month to a union group in Washington, D.C., that immigrants are taking jobs no one else wants, and offered them $50 an hour to pick lettuce in the Arizona sun for a summer, suggesting they couldn’t do it.

The senator didn’t stick around long enough to process any applications, despite several offers to take him up on his offer from the audience.

So Friday more than three dozen Minutmen showed up at his office, many carrying lettuce picker applications in one hand, and a head of lettuce in the other to show they could do the job.

McCain was not on hand to greet them, but somehow it’s probably not the kind of green he was hoping to collect for his budding presidential bid.

    ‘Straight Talk Express” HA Treason, spoken ’straight’ is still treason. And McStain deserves the penalty the constitution prescribes for traitors.

  2. Sherri Says:

    John McCain is from Arizona and should know better. He is a disgrace.

  3. Ron Says:

    Vincent and Sherry are correct in their respective assertions. He (John McCain) and anyone like him, you know who you are and so do we are traitors and deserve to be treated as nothing less.

    McCain doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he suggested that he would pay $50../hour if an American CITIZEN was willing to pick lettuce in YUMA, AZ…

    Illegal aliens do not pick lettuce in Yuma, DAY WORKERS brought across the border in the morning, and returned to Mexico in the evening pick lettuce and other crops in Yuma, AZ…

    As far as this goes there are a substantial number of American Citizens who would pick lettuce @ $50.00/hr - Who wouldn’t?

    Where he’s absolutely wrong is “illegal aliens are taking jobs Americans do not want”!

    The facts are that illegal alien workers are taking job opportunities AWAY FROM American Citizens with greedy companies reaping the rewards from (1) Cheap Labor, and (2) Avoiding payment of Taxes, and Workers Compensation premiums that make it difficult to compete (if) you are trying to make it without also breaking the law…

    There’s another matter that McCain and his Washington cronies can’t get through their collective heads (if they were to pull them out of you know where) is that nearly every illegal alien who seeks work with companies that require identification and/or Social Security numbers are committing a Felony by using Forged documents…

    American Citizens are routinely arrested for such offences - why aren’t illegal aliens? This violates the Fourteenth Ammendment which states there should be “Equal Justice under the law”, and also Anti-Descrimination provisions of the same Constitution…

    To grant amnesty would violate this ammendment, and set a precedent in which American Citizens could challenge an arrest, and procecution for crimes that Mexican invaders are exempted from procecution - think about it!

    Does ANYBODY want this idiot for Pres.? Maybe McCain/Kennedy? AaaaaRgh!!!!!!!!

  6. Martine Says:

    Gerry, not I… (coming from a staunch republican). McCain is NOT one [a republican], he’s a man LOOKING for a party! He’s nothing but a chameleon… or a snake in the grass… a reptile of SOME sort anyway! He’s one of the worst political hypocrits around!

    Click on the link for SEND A BRICK.COM. Great site, great idea! These leaders need some “concrete” feedback on how to do their job that’s for sure.

    You all are right too… McCain should be embarrassed. I hope an illegal doesn’t clean his house or cut his yard. I bet his kids don’t do yardwork. And Kennedy…. fugedaboutit. I wonder if he has illegals mixing and serving his drinks.

    The US really missed out when Teddy managed to worm his way out of that car he drove over the Chappaquidick Bridge. Too bad it was Mary Jo who paid the ultimate price, not him.

  9. Carol Bell Says:

    The Mecha gang and supporters of taking back the Southwestern United States don’t want to become an actual state belonging to Mexico because they know then the Southwest would be bounced back into a third world nation. What they want is to remain part of the U.S. and since they will be the majority, only the interests of Mexicans living in the Southwest U.S. would be recognized. Which of course means demanding more tax dollars from the federal government in order to provide all the services that will be needed in the Southwestern states. America will become divided but the powers that be know that the U.S. will not give up the Southwestern states. The Feds will make those welfare states that the rest of the U.S. will have to take care of.
