The Editor of the Journal

Here is what editor Kent Walz of the Journal and the Lang family think about Americans.  It was written in an editorial this morning.

"Let’s face it. Many Americans just won’t work as carpenters, framers, drywall installers, bricklayers, roofers and painters. They won’t pour concrete or lay adobe. It’s honest work, and the pay is pretty good. But it’s just too hard. It’s easier to collect government bennies, play video games and get subsidized insurance."

This is pretty hard core stuff.  Even for the Journal.  It certainly shows the class bigotry and hate that rules that newspaper's editorial pages.  How can anyone even work there anymore?  Oh, I forgot, they are too lazy to pour concrete.  And, ironically, the Journal wants so called 'Right to Work' legislation to pass to kill unions.  Without unions the pay for concrete pouring jobs will go even lower and why would Americans want those kind of jobs?

and yet they advocate that Susana's plan to get rid of immigrant licenses is the way to go? Hypocrisy at its best.

Why all the fuss about "right to work". The Rs just said it all, they really don't want to work. Who said the Rs couldn't talk out of both sides of their mouths. Hope oSusana and Jay jay don't deport too many too quickly, oh it's ok the Balls will be over by tomorrow and they won't need the mesero's anymore

Had to listen to Tracy Chapman's "Talking About A Revolution" after reading that Editorial. "Poor people gonna rise up and take what's theirs."

If only we could put Hector Balderas in charge of the Journal for 15 minutes.

That hate you talk about, and expressing it by lashing out at the lowest of the low and blaming them for your problems is in fact the essence of bigotry. And of course the claim that there are armies of moochers on the dole after that miniscule part of the budget has been slashed again and again and again is a ploy that works only on the most willfully ignorant portion of the population. It's just astounding that these peoples' minds operate at such a low, street corner level. There's never any intellect, no great insight on display in a Journal editorial. It's not even mediocre.

I'm with you Anonymous, and your Tracy Chapman.
