Odds & Ends

We have had a busy day today at the office. Brian and I have been busily preparing a a new promotional video. As I left the office today, the desktop computer was humming right along rendering our first draft version. Should we be particularly lucky, it will be the final version as well.

Sean checked in with me this evening to let me know that his computer has had to make a trip to the shop. Poor thing he won't get it back to sometime around the first of September. He may suffer from withdrawl over the next few weeks.

Thought for the Day:

I received this Awesome Stress Relief kit in my email today. After careful review of the instructions, I'm sure that there are going to be days to come that it will come in handy.

Drinking with a Redneck Girl

A Mexican, an Arab, and a redneck girl are in the same bar.When the Mexican finishes his beer,he throws his glass in the air, pulls out his pistol, and shoots the glass to pieces.He says, 'In Mexico , our glasses are so cheap we don't need to drink with the same one twice.'

The Arab, obviously impressed by this, drinks his beer, throws it into the air, pulls out his AK-47, and shoots the glass to pieces. He says, 'In the Arab World, we have so much sand to make glasses that we don't need to drink with the same one twice either.'

The redneck girl, cool as a cucumber, picks up her beer, downs it in one gulp, throws the glass into the air, whips out her 45, and shoots the Mexican and the Arab. Catching her glass, setting it on the bar, and calling for a refill, she says, 'In America we have so many illegal aliens that we don't have to drink with the same ones twice.'

Illegal aliens comprise a substantial portion of the sweatshop work force. These undocumented workers are easily exploited by unscrupulous employers and frequently labor for long hours at less than the minimum wage under unsafe and unhealthy conditions. In some cases, illegal aliens are held in sweatshops under conditions of involuntary servitude. Sweatshops exact both social and economic costs including lost wages and taxes and the fostering of organized criminal enterprises including alien smuggling, drug trafficking, money laundering, labor racketeering, and extortion.
One has only to look to the coal mines of Virginia at the turn of the century to see that there's more than one way to take advantage of a worker.
