"through the imprimatur of the United States." Indeed. The UN has passed 40 Resolutions that sought sanctions against Israel over their atrocities. Each time the U.S. has saved them with a Veto.
Not true. The only wasted vote is not voting.
hey there, haven't listened to the tunes yet, and thanks for the hugs...something really wondrous happened today...made me smile, through my tears, and helped me realize, yet again, the circle of life. Bunch of family together, but so hard....my cousin's little boy, Sam, and little girl, Emily, came up to me, with big hugs, and said in those darling little voices "Aunty, we needs to make 'ou feel better...so we has a wittle joke..."What, what, no why, should you not...every twust an adam..." (*atom*)....Basically "cause dey aways lie...no, dey makes up everysin...." (wow....) gonna post some tunes in a bit, just need to get away from all the other stuff...thanks. *hearts*....
Right you are. No schools. No sanitation workers. No fire department. Just police officers handing out speeding citations.
Gee Bob, your strawman doesn't seem to have brain.
"If you are paying the prevailing wage and can not hire a worker, then there should be a guest worker program that allows the employer to hire a guest worker for the job." in your mind translated to "f you can't find someone to work for free which is the only real "fair" wage according to republicons, most who have never had a real job, then it should be your right to import people from 3rd world countries that will work for free just to get out of the shit hole that they live in."
Not what I said. Not what I proposed. Filled with all the little small-minded fears that inhabit your world, but a wonderful strawman that you can knock down and makes you feel good about yourself.
Let's start educating you with the concept of "prevailing wage". That is the wage that must be paid by most people in an area to have people do the same kind of work. If there is no "prevailing wage" established, then there is no way for a guest worker to be paid a prevailing wage, so you can't hire them.
So, small farmers won't be able to live by plowing their farms under, and at some point will hire people to pick. As they do they will establish the "prevailing wage". There is actual power in the hands of the workers, as they can hold out and force that wage to be a decent wage. Once enough workers have been hired at a certain wage, then a "prevailing wage" has been established. After that other farms can use guest workers as long as they pay the "prevailing wage".
In addition, if a "prevailing wage" is offered, a guest worker must also be supplied with health benefits. Thus, it would make even more sense for a corporate farm to attempt to get citizens at a prevailing wage as there is the additional cost of providing health benefits to guest workers (which they can push off to the workers under ACA if they are not guest workers).
Then there is the benefit to the guest workers. They would get a decent wage. They would get health coverage while employed. And for every month they work they get 1/24 of a point to a green card. If they work for two years they may apply for a green card. This provides a guest worker with a path to citizenship. This eliminates the desire of a worker to work outside of the system as they don't get a decent wage, they don't get health care, and they don't earn anything towards citizenship.
Care to set up another strawman based on things I didn't say?
