The California Freeze: Double Whammy in the Wallet

The Big Freeze in California has wiped out a substantial portion of oranges, strawberries and other crops in the San Joaquin Valley. Final figures still to be assessed, but so far it looks like 80-90% of the navel orange crop. Thousands of farmworkers and packers are being laid off, and truckers are the next workers likely to be impacted.

Do you think those illegal aliens will head home now that the "jobs" they supposedly came for don't exist? HAA!

Gov. Schwartzenegger says the State will offer assistance to all affected laborers, regardless of their immigration status. Assistance will include food programs, temporary housing, low-income energy assistance, and "other social programs."

In short, the citizens of the US, and especially those in California, not only get whacked in the wallet for oranges and other foods. Now we are expected to provide additional support to people who violated our immigration laws, illegally took jobs, and all too often are already on the dole as well for their "US-born children" (who may be identity-theft babies, not really US-born). While lower- and middle-income Americans give up fresh fruits and other produce, cut back or take the whack, criminals get us to buy these now-"luxury" items for them!

While the growers try to convince Congress (and the Dems require little-to-no "convincing") that there is a massive shortage of farm labor and a need for vast increases in "guest" workers, will these thousands of laid-off farm workers go where they are needed? Find other jobs?

HAA! Not as long as they can get handouts courtesy of California's taxpaying citizens.

Gov. Jerry Brown, that ditzy post-Flower Child gov, was called "Governor Moonbeam." How about dubbing Gov. Schwartzenegger "Governor Moonbat"? Definitely a severe case of bats in his bellfry. Maybe he took too many whacks to the old nut in his Holly-rude days -- his brain is now as battered as an Everlast punching bag.

Californians: Tell Gov. Moonbat, "Zero Tolerance for Immigration-Law Violators" means not one red cent from citizens' wallets for illegal aliens' food and housing. He's not going to listen to an ex-Californian like me.
