I’ll Clean My Own Toilet, Carlos

Posted on May 16, 2011


OK – let’s get this out of the way before I get started with the Blasted Fool feature story.  Carlos Santana is amazingly talented – legendary band, blah,blah,blah.  Alright.  Now this is yet another of the countless examples of musicians and actors who should, as Frank Zappa used to like to say “Shut up and play Yer guitar”.

What is up with you, Carlos?  No, no – I take that back – once you open your mouth, your I.Q. rating plummets by about a 100 points.   Never mind, it’s not like if you try to explain it, that it will make any more sense.  It certainly can’t make any less.  All I can say is who cleaned toilets and changed sheets before the ‘Latin Workers’ started doing it?   I seem to recall that Americans of various ethnicities were doing it.  It’s a good thing he didn’t ask who does construction work, because I know good, hardworking Americans who used to make a decent living doing drywall, concrete, framing and so forth before greedy contractors tossed them to the curb in favor of border jumpers.  But even with all of the displacement of American citizens, Illegal Aliens are still only 6 percent of the workforce.  That begs yet another question Carlos.  If we only have Illegals doing 6 percent of the Nation’s work – why do we need them?  Cat got your tongue?

Here’s another – if Illegal workers only comprise 6 percent of the workforce – what are all these millions of Illegals we see everywhere.   Got nothing Carlos?  Let me toss you a clue?  It’s the mobile anchor baby factories and their spawn that are using the schools, medical care and aid to families with dependent chiquitas.   Where are the rest of the non-working members of the Illegal population?  Did you want to ask the audience?  The audience says that 700,000 of the Illegal population is habituating in de la Carcel.   So what’s your final answer, Carlos?  I’m sorry Carlos, the audience was correct –  700,000.

Yeah, Carlos – we do have immigration laws for a reason – and the reason is not to keep brown skinned people out of the country, Carlos.  It’s to keep uneducated, low wage workers out, Carlos.  It’s to keep them from degrading the wages of Americans, Carlos.  It’s to keep drug mules, murderers, child molesters, rapists and disease carriers out of the country, Carlos.  It’s so I can go to the Home Depot and the mega Target store and not see signs in two languages, Carlos.  Oh, you’re right – the ship has already sailed on that one.

Carlos – it might not be such a good idea to call the gringos that are are buying your music, racists just because they believe we should have a system of laws.  Let’s see what a country that doesn’t have a system of laws – but a system of corruption instead looks like, Carlos.  Wait for it, wait for it – there it is Carlos – Meheeeco.   Go there, Carlos – vamanos, vamanos, ondele, ondele!  Hasta La Vista, Carlos.  We can find an American to do your job.   Like Ted Nugent.

Carlos Santana slams immigration laws at Civil Rights Game

ATLANTA — The stage on the infield grass for the pregames ceremonies at baseball’s Civil Rights Game included actor Morgan Freeman and Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, but also the Grammy-award winning artist Carlos Santana, a fan of the Oakland Athletics.

Santana caused a stir in Turner Field on an appropriate day to be talking about social issues.

Santana was on stage to receive Major League Baseball’s Beacon of Change award. He took the microphone and said Arizona and the city of Atlanta should be “ashamed” for passing immigration bills, that have been criticized widely as racially motivated.

Santana was booed by some fans in Turner Field.

Gov. Nathan Deal signed Georgia House Bill 87 on Friday. It will allow law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of some suspects and requires employers to check the immigration status of new hires.

Santana spoke with the media in the press box during the Phillies-Braves game and said there should be a boycott in Georgia by Latin workers.

“I would invite all Latin people to do nothing for about two weeks so you can see who really, really is running the economy,” Santana said. “Who cleans the sheets? Who cleans the toilets? Who babysits?

“I am here to give voice to the invisible.”

Commissioner Bud Selig was sitting on the field next to his close friend, former Milwaukee and Atlanta slugger Hank Aaron. Selig left in the middle of the Braves games with the Phillies and was not available for comment.

It was the fifth civil rights game and included television personality Al Roker as the master of ceremonies and former Dodger great, pitcher Don Newcombe and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

“Most people at this point they are either afraid to really say what needs to be said, this is the United States the land of the free,” Santana said. “If people want the immigration law to keep passing in every state then everybody should get out and just leave the American Indians here. This is about civil rights.”
