From UPI, April 1 [no joke], 2006:

Bloomberg: Illegal immigrants help golfers

NEW YORK, April 1 (UPI) — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says golf fairways would suffer if illegal immigrants were returned to their native country.

“You and I are beneficiaries of these jobs,” Bloomberg told his WABC-AM radio co-host, John Gambling. “You and I both play golf; who takes care of the greens and the fairways in your golf course?”

However, Robert Heaney, general manager of Deepdale Golf Club — a Long Island course where Bloomberg often plays — told The New York Daily News that no illegal immigrants work at the club.

Deepdale is “maybe the most reclusive club in America,” and it “hosts maybe ten rounds per day,” according to golf course architect Tom Doak in his indispensable Confidential Guide to Golf Courses. Thank God that billionaires like Bloomberg don’t have to choose between paying groundskeepers a little more or putting up with fluffy lies in the fairway that make it harder to draw a 3-iron shot into Deepdale’s notoriously rigorous 15th green.

  1. It’s funny all the jobs that supposedly wouldn’t get done without illegal immigrants – jobs that were done almost entirely by native-born Americans just two decades ago. Meanwhile the number of adults without jobs approaches 100 million, close to 50 million Americans are on food stamps, and college students graduate with truckloads of debt.

    A few years ago I was eating lunch at a fast food restaurant that was right across the street from the (mostly) freshman dorms at my alma mater. The place was staffed top-to-bottom with Hispanics, many of whom clearly couldn’t speak English. If the owner of the place wanted to find “willing workers” all he had to do was walk across the street and post a few signs on the dormitory bulletin boards and he could’ve been fully (and legally) staffed with intelligent kids in a matter of hours.

    I had an interesting restaurant moment last weekend. I was with the girlfriend in Portland, ME for the weekend. We try to get up there at least once a year, as Portland is pretty much the foodie capital of New England. The restaurant biz there is cutthroat; the Portland Press Herald ran an article in May about how hard it was for the restaurants to find and keep cooks.

    The girl is one for the latest and greatest, but she made a rez for an Italian place that seemed pretty old school for her, an Italian food snob. Anyplace that's survived for any period in Portland, though, had to have something going for it.

    We had a great meal: nouvelle takes on old Italian classics, a small but well-curated wine list and a romantic ambiance, all for prices about 15-20% less than we're used to paying in Portland. I recommend the gnocchi with pea pods and pancetta.

    The kicker came when we were leaving. The girl had to visit the ladies, and I was going to the front of the house and took a peek into the open kitchen, which consisted of three white guys that looked to be in their 40s, a cute 20ish redhead doing salads and prep, and a white teenager on dishes. Maybe the first restaurant I've seen in 15-20 years that's Anglo top to bottom.

    Top-notch quality and reasonable prices without a chico in sight!

    Hinckley’s mother’s house sits astride the 13th hole of Kingsmill’s premier PGA championship golf course, the River Golf Course.

    The Hinckley home has two decks on the back facing Kingsmill Pond; sought-after properties in the neighborhood. Next to the residential part of the community is Kingsmill Resort. All residents, including Hinckley, can get into the resort by driving a short distance from their homes. New residents must pay a $10,000 initiation fee to enjoy the resort’s marina, pools, restaurants and spa. A $30,000 initiation fee is required to join the golf club and the three courses.

    This year a women’s LPGA championship tour is scheduled for a Mother’s Day tournament on Kingsmill’s River Course. Women golfers will have to walk through Hinckley’s backyard to get to the 13th hole.

    The post-Soviet privatization process was rigged in Russia and the former Soviet Republics. State-owned assets and industries were sold at ridiculously low valuations to financiers, who then kicked back bribes to corrupt government individuals. The financiers (who became known as the oligarchs) engaged in very severe price gouging and other corrupt business practices, which caused a major economic crisis in Russia. During that time, life expectancy declined too.

    Western policymakers manipulated Boris Yeltsin (the alcoholic and mentally declining premier of Russia) to keep privatizing state-owned companies. That accounts for the good press that Yeltsin used to get.

    Many of these oligarchs were of Eastern European Jewish descent. They formed alliances with powerful Jews (such as Larry Summers) in the U.S. and Israel. When Putin came to power, he imprisoned or exiled some of the oligarchs. The more docile oligarchs offered to be subordinated to him if they could keep their wealth.

    A lot of the extreme anti-Putin hatred in Western political/media circles comes from Putin's refusal to play ball with the oligarchs. Neoconservative Jews have done a lot to whip up anti-Putin sentiment behind the scenes. So have Deep State figures who believe that a new Cold War could be very lucrative.

    When Trump says nice things about Putin, he's basically kicking dirt in the faces of the Jewish neocons and the Deep State.

There was an exhibit of historic photos on the wall and my typically insane takeaway was that from the 1920s until the mid 1990s or so, the golf club employed many African Americans, but when I walked the grounds last summer, the staff was overwhelmingly Latino. Not to sound too nationalistic or anything, but I felt that this was a real loss and that it was unfair to African Americans that they lost out on these employment opportunities, but then again, I don’t get it…

    Yup, the rich people of the Hamptons employed a lot of blacks for a long time, but not anymore. When I was there in 2004, the only large number of black workers I saw was driving past a party thrown by a prominent leftist lawyer (I think he had been a junior associate of William Kunstler). He was employing a bunch of black guys to park cars out of old time sentiment.

    When they get out of jail, they could be given the job of keeping the fairways cropped — it’s not like they have absolutely no experience –and it fits with the current trend toward encouraging the hiring of ex-felons, allowing ex-felons to vote, etc etc.

  18. If we use the left’s “Wayback Machine” we find that, according to Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg, Euro-Americans only toiled for the 100 years between 1865 and 1965. Slaves built, not worked on, but actually built everything in antebellum America and Latino immigrants built everything since 1965.

    This would also explain the great waves of European immigration in the late 19th and early 20th century as native born whites, deprived of their slaves and before they had available to them millions of Latino stoop laborers, were forced to scour the continent of Europe for people willing to do the real work in America. The situation got so bad in California that Chinese coolies and Japanese truck farmers had to be imported so native born whites could relax in their Nob Hill mansions.
