Keeping the Streets Safe for Legal Exploitation

In another (in)humane step towards cleaning the streets of the UAE of “illegal” elements, 180 Afghan migrants are being deported – without pay for the past 4 months of laboring. And whom did the illegal migrants work for? The Ajman local government! Perhaps it is the Ajman government officials that should be deported!

I agree that Ajman government should be punished for hiring illegal expatriates (not immigrants) but I think that according to the law illegal labourer dont deserve salaries.

Like this shit never happened in Arizona with Mexicans...

You guys are "douches"

Does that make it right? Because there are illegal Mexicans working in the US, it's no big deal here?

I would have thought someone as proud and patriotic as you, blessing, would prefer to see your people maintain higher values than people in the US.

And if you are going to needlessly and rudely insult other members and posters on this blog, then your comments will be removed.

The Arizonan government employing illegal Mexican labour? Wanna show us some evidence of this?

A Blessing in Tragedy said...

Sure, stop by Tempe, AZ and look around ASU, which is a state school. hell, they even employ illegal mexicans who have american kids and then try to deport the illegal parents.

Google it. this happened not too long ago.

I dont want the UAE to be better than the US. IT IS BETTER THAN THE US. I just dont see why this issue is pointed out when it is common place, regardless of it being right and wrong.

Then that in and of it's self is a moral issue. one that no 2 people can agree on in a 100% way. hell yeah! I would LOVE to have a bunch of people working for me then find a loop hole so that I wouldnt have to pay them!

This issue is the workers' faults for not playing by the rules. hell, if Ajman's Government showed up in a black van and shot them all to death I'd have no problem with it. again, their own faults.

So because they're in the country illegally you would have no problem shooting them to death?

A Blessing in Tragedy said...

No, I wouldnt. Dont do shit that's illegal, and bad shit wont be done to you.

I love the death penalty. Greatest thing since sliced bread. I think it should be applied to everything. hell, I wouldnt mind shooting people who are here legally... but that's just insane.

It's being pointed out because it's common place, when it damn well shouldn't be. If it takes a hundred or a thousand newspaper articles to get action taken to improve these people's plight, then it's worth it.

Then point it out in your 100+ year old countries. not here. and no, it's common place because someone BROKE THE LAW and are now being PUNISHED.

End of story.

Just because any country does it, doesn't make it right. Should the laborers be deported, that is certainly the right of the government to do that. Should they not be paid for the work they did - that is inhumane. Particularly for Afghan refugees - whatever happened to Muslim brotherhood and charity? Particularly for a country being destroyed by US imperialism - if you are so anti-US, here's a great chance of showing it - support Afghan refugees and help the cause of getting them classified as "refugees" by the UN! The US has forced the UN to declassify Afghans as refugees - as it (the US) is in denial that we are destroying their country, yet again.

So, if you want to attack the US lobby the UN to get Afghans classified as refugees and provide them humanitarian assistance, show a little compassion for the downtrodden members of the ummah....

Who said I was anti US? or UK? or anything?

No, I have said this a thousand times, I am not anti anyone. I am pro UAE. and if that interferes with "Muslim brotherhood" every now and then so be it.

I would prefer a gay, jewish, cross dressing UAE national to the best (any other nationality) muslim. because in the end of the day he/she is here for the good and the bad. that "muslim brother" will (like most foreigners here) move on the second this land is out of money.

It's a matter of national identity, not of religion. and once again, not paying them may be "inhumane" to you, but to me it's just bad comedy. I find it funny. I really do.

Would u prefer National u just described over the Prohpet Mohammed peace and paryers be upon him, because the prophet is not From UAE?

A Blessing in Tragedy said...

Today? Yes. I would accept that the prphet was the prophet, just as I (but to a bigger extent) accept that... Al Sudais is a great man. but he is from the KSA, and although a great religious thinker, in todays world, not having the same national identity means that we have that much less in common.

Your analogy is flawed. the prophet lived in a different age. and although some things are eternal, the UAE, Medina at the prophet's time... and Al Andalus (I needed a 3rd example) are not.

Mubarak said...

bit

correct me if I am wrong:

National Identity is your criteria for judging people!

you don't look at their characters,believes, openness, attitudes, or any other human faculties!!!

A Blessing in Tragedy said...

No, not my entire criteria. but the 1st. I know lots of UAE citizens who are total assholes and who I wish bad things would befall.

You act like this is something new. most places will divide (agreeably, not to the point I'm talking about) based on nationality 1st. that is, are you a citizen of this place or not.

When it comes to the government. thats all that should matter. National identity.

Now If we're talking about friends, or the company I keep, national identity isnt as important as say... being able to understand my wry sense of sadistic humor... truthfulness...

Does that maybe make sense?

'blessing in tragedy' - you are a complete whanker!

A Blessing in Tragedy said...

Yeah, I get that alot. well, assfuck, fuckmook, jackhole, and fagmo are the usual, but I'm sure what you just called me is something along those lines, right?

Hey, when you're one of the few who make sense, you expect jackoffs like yourself to be confused.
