Businesses Vacant While Thousands March In Rallies

Hope you weren't trying to get some landscaping done yesterday.

Far from the boisterous streets where hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants and their supporters marched Monday, many of the restaurants, factories and construction sites they boycotted stood silent.

Mostly because no one in their right mind would walk through a mob of thousands and thousands of angry Mexicans.

Kitchens that normally serve food were empty.

I had dinner out last night. There are no illegal immigrants in my town, or, cable costs too much and they don't have TV and just didn't hear about the protest.

Meat-processing plants came to a halt.

Oh god no! No one processed meat yesterday? What will we do? Where will we go?

Fields were barren of workers.

But ironically, it was just a little more peaceful without the leaf blowers.

Just remember no immigrants are alike, some do great hard work and others you can't find when you need them...I think people know what I mean...and they're from two different parts of the world.
