Send A Foreigner Home

Ok. Due to popular request (ok actually only 1 request but whatever) I am going to try & make an effort to revive this blog. Now on with the regularly scheduled rambling.

The other evening on Twitter I had retweeted someone who had asked a question about why Europeans were so concerned over American politics. Not thinking much of it I continued enjoying my day off & woke up to one of my European followers (whom is currently living in the US) tweeting that it was because they enjoyed a good laugh. Well fuck you too. I made a few comments about if she didn't like it here, I would gladly eat Ramen noodles for the next 6 months to buy her a plane ticket home. To which she replied she didn't take charity. I told her not to think of it as charity but as a gift.

Later in the evening she posted
It's always great to read how hated LEGAL immigrants are...
.

I personally don't hate legal immigrants but I do hate their attitude of "well it's so much better where I come from". Why do you need to come here & tell us how great things are there? If it's so much better why are you here? Planes leave this country every day going to damn near every country out there.

Why do foreigners feel it's just fine and dandy to come to America & totally trash the way we do things, but if we were to go live in their home countries & talked smack about their governments & way of life it would be totally unacceptable? When did we become such a nation of namby pamby candy asses that can't stand up for our country? When did it become such a horrible thing to be an American? These countries look down their noses at us but yet when they get into trouble who are the first people they come running to?

All I have to say is if you don't like it, GET THE FUCK OUT!

So I'm proposing we start a fund to send these unhappy foreigners home. Who's with me?

I'm with you. I've had to deal with some of these assholes myself. And like you. I tell them to their faces,if they don't like it here go back home.

We get the same thing here in Canada. Some of them even go so far as to act as if they are still back in their home country. Send 'em back ON A CONTAINER SHIP!!

I totally agree with you on this problem. We've become such Liberal pussy's in this country that we won't stand up for ourselves anymore. These Imigrants ( legal and illegal) come here and try to make OUR Country like the dump they came from and we do nothing but watch it happen. We are letting them dilute our ways and customs and it has to stop.

I hate to make blanket statements because I work with a guy who came in years ago and if all drivers were like him we would have no problems, but over the years I have come to believe that drivers should have to be US citizens. If gives them time to adapt to the culture so they drive like they have a brain and keeps the companies from getting cheap labor that they can pressure into unsafe running. This would also solve the current Mexican truck problem.

Same in England, europe allows free movement of labour, most countries restricted entry numbers except Britin , so now we are flooded with East Europeans working as drivers for peanuts , bosses love them .
