Carey, something special in order for Brandon eh?

To do so well definitely deserves a reward. (I used to get D-'s on a good day!)

Greetings DEN! I hope you are well. Carey, that's excellent news! Please give Brandon my congratulations for such a wonderful accomplishment. And now, a news update from our "Best Friends and Only Demockracy In The Middle East!"

LEGAL SLAVE TRADE IN ISRAEL
desertpeace.wordpress.com

The wall of Apartheid in Israel has made it virtually impossible for many Palestinian workers to cross over to the Israeli side for work purposes. This has resulted in a mass influx of foreign workers, especially those that work as caregivers for the old and sick of the nation. Hundreds of thousands of these people are in Israel today, most with valid visas, many who are here illegally.

The tales they tell are unbelievably shameful and expose yet another aspect of the racism inherent in zionism…. I’ll deal with just one of these stories in this post, but keep in mind that this is just one of a thousand of such examples…

A disabled man was approached not long ago by a man who asked if he had or needed a caregiver. The disabled person was wheelchair bound which made him an ‘easy target’ for the scam in the making….
He was informed that he could get a worker in his home for ten hours a week and it would not cost him a thing…. that’s a hard offer to refuse.

Papers were filled out, documents were signed, interviews with government agencies, etc., etc….
Finally, all was approved and a foreign worker from Sri Lanka was on his way to what he hoped would be a possible way to make a few bucks to help his destitute family back home…. BOY, was he in for a surprise!

Upon arrival in Israel the ‘agency’ that brought him here demanded $1,500 up front to start the process of obtaining the proper documents for his employment. At the Minister of Interior’s office he had to shell out another $40 to get the work permit stamped in his passport…
He was then ready to go to work….. but where?

His visa was obtained in the name of the disabled man mentioned at the beginning of this post…. but he won’t actually be working for him full time… just for 10 hours a week… at no cost to him. What happens the rest of the week??, and who pays this worker for the 10 ‘free hours’ of labour???

The ‘agency’ arranges for this worker to perform his duties as caregiver in someone else’s home…. someone that was not able to obtain a visa in their own name. The wage is way below the minimum, the hours are long, and the person must be available during his ‘free time’. Accommodation is often provided at a fee…. usually higher than one would normally pay. At the end of the month, his salary is barely enough for him to survive, let alone send money to his family as was planned….

The ten ‘free hours’ are ‘payment’ to the original person for obtaining the visa.. NO ONE PAYS FOR IT…. the worker is a virtual slave to this person.

This entire procedure is considered the ‘norm’ in Israel…. as it was in the southern American States after slavery was officially ended. It is a demonstration of the non value of life placed upon those ‘not of the tribe’ by the Israeli government.

What happens if this worker refuses to do his ‘obligated’ free hours? Simple, his visa is revoked and he darts off to unknown territory and becomes a soldier in the army of illegal immigrants… eventually caught and deported…. AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE….

The ‘agency’ then arranges to bring over a new worker from abroad and the entire process is repeated as well as more money going into the coffers of these scam masters.

In this particular case, the worker had a lucky streak…. he told the original person involved what was going on…. the man was shocked beyond belief. He told the worker that he would not have to work for him, that he would not report this and his visa would not be canceled. He was then free to work wherever he wanted, legally.

The ‘agency’ got wind of the situation and visited the disabled person at home, wanting to know why the worker was not doing his ‘time’ for him. The man explained that he did not need his services as he had a regular worker come in once a week to clean the house, that was all he required… simple explanation…. but not so simple reaction…
The agency contacted the foreign worker, told him that he would have to give them an additional $150 a month to cover the cost of the man’s cleaning help… or they would cancel his visa. Can we call this blackmail??

The worker then visited the man and wanted to know if he intended to cancel his visa… he was told that he was promised otherwise and not to worry and NOT TO GIVE THE ‘AGENCY’ THE $150…. the ‘agency’ could NOT cancel the visa without the man’s approval.

In this case, the worker continues to function legally with no fear of deportation…. the ‘agency’ lost out on their scam… and all ended well. This is not the case for thousands of others who are virtually slaves to this inhumane system… a system known about and allowed to continue by the zionist regime…

Israel does not discriminate in who they discriminate against… racism, exploitation, occupation, and now slavery are an integral part of their system… I wonder what Abe Foxman would say about all of this…. I’m sure one of his cronies will direct him to this post.

It's not slavery when Israel does it!

It's not running slow for me Den. It's not running at all. I get an error message trying to go to his site.

Congrats to Brandon!! Give that young man a high five for me. We'll ignore Debbie Downer's post as usual.

Ya know, Isreal has been doing there best to piss everyone in the ME off but still they are a chimps best buddies. I have reached the point of not giving a shit what they do anymore, in fact the worthless leaders in that country are on par with our worthless leaders and as such they can stuff it where the Sun don't shine!

Slave labor? what do you call employing Mexicans in low wage jobs? Mexicans=Palestinians as far as Apartheid is concerned, SSDD.

I just hope the rotten-ass bastards here and in Isreal get what they deserve karmicly speaking, too many idiots, not enough bullets.

We really, really need to stop burning fossil fuels:

Ocean dead-zones may be linked to global warming

Very likely are.

I know Den, something special. Maybe Baskin Robbins pistachio, he loves that. He's got two nintendos; we're trying to wean him from that. Thank you Sal, I'll tell him.

Just heard! John Lewis will be switching his super delegate and most esteemed vote to Obama.

Wow. That's a big one.

And maybe we will:

Good points made.

B-R Pistachio would be a good one!

Making me hungry here! FOOOOOOD!!!

Sal, The stupids remind me of the Jay-walking segment with Jay Leno.

The stupids EAT geniuses for lunch.

No room on this planet for intellectuals just morons.

Obviously.

WARNING!!!!

An insidious computer virus recently discovered on digital photo frames has been identified as a powerful new Trojan Horse from China that collects passwords for online games - and its designers might have larger targets in mind.

"It is a nasty worm that has a great deal of intelligence," said Brian Grayek, who heads product development at Computer Associates, a security vendor that analyzed the Trojan Horse.

The virus, which Computer Associates calls Mocmex, recognizes and blocks antivirus protection from more than 100 security vendors, as well as the security and firewall built into Microsoft Windows. It downloads files from remote locations and hides files, which it names randomly, on any PC it infects, making itself very difficult to remove. It spreads by hiding itself on photo frames and any other portable storage device that happens to be plugged into an infected PC.

Den, what did you buy to clone your computer with and have you done it yet?

Obama's inexperience isn't a fatal flaw, but it's a real issue.

He should use the rest of his campaign to give voters a clearer picture of how he'd govern — not in style but in substance.

Omania stop the platitudes!!! Where's the beef? We don't need another bullshitter in the White House.

Bush I endorses McCain and he seals the deal for Jeb to be on the ticket with McCain. The Nazi Party's ticket is set, McCain-Jeb Bush.

McCain will only be in office through 2012 and Jeb Bush will be in office from 2013 through 2020.

George P. Bush will be in office from 2021 through 2028.

Either Jenna or Barbara will be in office from 2029 through 2036.

A Hitler dynasty will be in the White House through 2036 at least.

Yikes! My kids gave me a digital photo frame for my birfday a couple months ago. I got it loaded with grandkid pictures without a problem though. (47 pictures barely makes a dent in a 256mb card) Apparently most, or some, have a USB connection to connect to a computer (how it infects you), but I didn't do it that way. I pre-loaded an extra SD memory card I had, and just slid it in the photo frame and turned it on. Maybe I better leave it just like it is too, or risk infection if I pull the card to add pictures.
