Labor Day 2009 is a terrible time to be an American worker.

Because of Meyerson and WaPo’s immigration to keep wages down.

Meyerson: Bible commands immigration amnesty

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/12/18/AR2007121801634_pf.html

We’ve seen this kind of Christianity before in America. It’s more tribal than religious, and it surges at those times when our country is growing more diverse and economic opportunity is not abounding. At its height in the 1920s, the Ku Klux Klan was chiefly the political expression of nativist Protestants upset by the growing ranks of Catholics in their midst.

It’s difficult today to imagine KKKers thinking of their mission as Christian, but millions of them did.

Today’s Republican values voters don’t really conflate their rage with their faith. Lou Dobbs is a purely secular figure. But nativist bigotry is strongest in the Old Time Religion precincts of the Republican Party, and woe betide the Republican candidate who doesn’t embrace it, as John McCain, to his credit and his political misfortune, can attest.

The Meyerson Plan for those Protestant KKKers:

We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.

Harold Meyerson at WaPo

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/08/29/AR2006082901042.html

Quotes from WaPo:

“From 1947 through 1973, American productivity rose by a whopping 104 percent, and median family income rose by the very same 104 percent.”

“Since 1973 productivity gains have outpaced median family income by 3 to 1.”

“In ways more difficult to quantify, the mass prosperity fostered a generosity of spirit: The civil rights revolution and the Marshall Plan both emanated from an America in which most people were imbued with a sense of economic security.”

Taken from them by WaPo immigration.

==Meyerson lauds Kennedy

http://www.prospect.org/cs/articles?article=ted_kennedy_keeper_of_the_liberal_flame

Labor law remains unreformed, and America’s 12 million undocumented immigrants still live in the shadows with no legal path to citizenship. These were all battles that Kennedy would have led; he was the go-to guy, the champion, the orator, the deal-maker for the uninsured, the undocumented, the unable-to-join-unions; the senior senator from Massachusetts and for all the excluded in American life.

I was fortunate to have been in the room when he was at his greatest

Meyerson shills for our destruction.  He is a fraud.

Meyerson like the Post is a fraud on being for workers or students.  They are for immigration.  That keeps wages down and takes away benefits.  Students from here lose opportunity in math and science to those from China and India.

Men’s median wages are the same as 1973, women’s are what men’s were in 1963. Men and women’s median wages graph page 19:

Productivity per hour doubled over the period 1973 to 2007 roughly.

Its immigration that keeps down men’s and women’s wages.  Income inequality is the highest ever.  See U shaped income inequality graph:

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/13/even-more-gilded/

Income inequality fell during immigration restriction from 1924 to 1965, it has risen since.  The productivity gains go to the top because immigration keeps down wages.

The Post is losing readers because it keeps their wages down and they can’t afford a paper that advocates for Goldman Sachs and against workers.

California is going bankrupt from immigration.  Immigration doesn’t benefit those here it hurts them.  Meyerson hurts people here. So does WaPo.  The Post hurts workers every day of the year by pushing immigration.  Read Vdare.com.  You can free fax Congress to stop immigration at NumbersUSA and Fairus.  Read Dan Stein as well.

==Peter Brimelow Canada shows immigration doesn’t help native workers

Following is quote from Brimelow and his quotation of study is indented.

http://blog.vdare.com/archives/2009/09/05/labor-day-motto-moratorium-now-more-evidence-from-canada/

[Peter Brimelow] @ 2:27 pm [Email author[Email this article] [Print this article] [Print this article]

As far as I can see see, Canada’s C.D. Howe Institute got absolutely no publicity for its report released this summer Faster, Younger, Richer? The Fond Hope and Sobering Reality of Immigration’s Impact on Canada’s Demographic and Economic Future, [pdf] by Robin Banerjee and William B.P. Robson. This is certainly because of its conclusion:

For Canadians to expect more, younger immigrants to counteract the effects of low past fertility on workforce growth and aging would be a serious mistake. While immigration has been a key driver of Canadian population growth, it cannot, on its own, offset demographic trends that threaten our future living standards…faster productivity growth would boost real incomes per person more than any conceivable immigration strategy.

=End Brimelow quote

Why is Meyerson the mouth piece of the Post while Brimelow’s actual reality piece is considered fringe?   Because as the town halls showed, white people are the new fringe.   We, all of us together, are just fringe to the Meyerson’s.   They intend to make us even more fringe immigrant by immigrant until we are gone.   There is no safety in not speaking up.

They are taking our land and our job security and our retirement.  You will get nothing by keeping silent, literally. That is what dispossession is, its not medicare and social security, its cuts and cuts until they just cut you.  Stop being silent.  Stop voting for Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch and John McCain types who have contempt and disdain for us for doing so.  Speak up.  Tell them they lie about immigration.

Absolutely correct.  Stop student visas, family reunification, “asylum”, and end affirmative action and uncivil rights laws at the same time.  Freeze government employment and cancel all non-military government pensions above social security level.

And they will call it North Mexico. Every street will have a new name and the graveyards will be dug up and be cleansed of the bigot bones.

Old Atlantic, i don’t know if you were responding to my post in a sarcastic way, and I don’t mean to be bigoted. (I mention Asia probably because, in my experience and observation, the best jobs are going to Asians.) However, I seem to remember that when I tried getting a job in western Europe as a foreigner in the 80’s or 90’s it was very, very difficult because the policy was to protect native workers by regulating immigration. If other countries could do that, why can’t we?

No sarcasm intended. I thought your post was exactly correct just as I said. I don’t consider you bigoted. I consider you a patriot who is speaking the truth. Even with close to 10 percent U-3 unemployment, people here are complaining about Reagan instead of immigration. You have the courage to speak the truth which I applaud, while others cower in fear.

When we cower in fear, our politician masters have contempt and disdain for us as we vote for them in fear even as they hurt us over and over by the same immigration policies. Over time, their contempt for us turns into active hate which makes hurting us more a physical need for them.

I agree with stopping all immigration and student visas and “temporary” jobs like H-1b and Agjobs. The jobs that are temporary are ours. That is what the Senators think while they laugh at us more and more openly.

We are so conditioned by fear to speak the truth that even when others agree with us, we think its sarcasm.  That makes them have contempt for us even more.

    Rampant population growth threatens our economy and quality of life. Immigration, both legal and illegal, are fueling this growth. I’m not talking about environmental degradation or resource depletion. I’m talking about the effect upon rising unemployment and poverty in America.

    I should introduce myself. I am the author of a book titled “Five Short Blasts: A New Economic Theory Exposes The Fatal Flaw in Globalization and Its Consequences for America.” To make a long story short, my theory is that, as population density rises beyond some optimum level, per capita consumption of products begins to decline out of the need to conserve space. People who live in crowded conditions simply don’t have enough space to use and store many products. This declining per capita consumption, in the face of rising productivity (per capita output, which always rises), inevitably yields rising unemployment and poverty.

    This theory has huge implications for U.S. policy toward population management, especially immigration policy. Our policies of encouraging high rates of immigration are rooted in the belief of economists that population growth is a good thing, fueling economic growth. Through most of human history, the interests of the common good and business (corporations) were both well-served by continuing population growth. For the common good, we needed more workers to man our factories, producing the goods needed for a high standard of living. This population growth translated into sales volume growth for corporations. Both were happy.

    But, once an optimum population density is breached, their interests diverge. It is in the best interest of the common good to stabilize the population, avoiding an erosion of our quality of life through high unemployment and poverty. However, it is still in the interest of corporations to fuel population growth because, even though per capita consumption goes into decline, total consumption still increases. We now find ourselves in the position of having corporations and economists influencing public policy in a direction that is not in the best interest of the common good.

    The U.N. ranks the U.S. with eight third world countries – India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Bangladesh, Uganda, Ethiopia and China – as accounting for fully half of the world’s population growth by 2050. It’s absolutely imperative that our population be stabilized, and that’s impossible without dramatically reining in immigration, both legal and illegal.

    If you’re interested in learning more about this important new economic theory, I invite you to visit my web site at OpenWindowPublishingCo.com where you can read the preface, join in my blog discussion and, of course, purchase the book if you like. (It’s also available at Amazon.com.)

    Please forgive the somewhat spammish nature of the previous paragraph. I just don’t know how else to inject this new perspective into the immigration debate without drawing attention to the book that explains the theory.

    Thanks for your posting. Your ideas sound interesting and I did look at your website. Good luck with the book.
