Wild Bill's Story

There was a certain famous person having breakfast at the table across from me at Wild Bill's this morning.

He engaged me in conversation and we ended up talking about federalization.

This is a direct quote, "With Federalization, how are we going to bring in our waitresses, strippers, and dancers?"

The Canadian girls at the next table added, "Yeah, or teachers and doctors..."

Ever wander back and look in the kitchen ?
You just might not have breakfast there again.........

It can't be any worse than the street food in Bangkok.

True, but are we not living in the first world where the Dept of Health check out such places? That kitchen needs to be cited and warned.

Oh my, interesting discussion.

Maybe the teachers and doctors could moonlight as waitresses and strippers?

Just trying to be part of the solution...

Wow, I missed it... when did Saipan achieve first world status?

The promise of Covenant Section 701 (progress toward U.S. living standards) is far from reality, which is one of the issues in the CNMI's Section 903 lawsuit.

But every cloud has a silver lining, and the dispersal of our sex industry built on the backs of exploited foreign workers will be one of the most salutary benefits of F-day come November 28, 2009 -- or a later date if Congress determines DHS needs until October 1, 2010 or 2011 to ensure the security of our Russian and Chinese tourists.

Is June 1, 2009 the date the Federal Immigration take over or is it extended to Nov 28, 2009 as stated by Ms. D.? Little confuced here.

Restraunt, maintain

Ms. D. said...

Sorry, no intent to confuse. The Secretary of Homeland Security has not yet postponed the Transition Program Effective Date (TPED or F-Day) from June 1, 2009 to November 28, 2009 or some intermediate date, which is a determination to be made in her sole discretion. By law, the latest she can make a decision to delay F-Day and so inform Congress is Saturday, May 2, 2009, EDT.

If the casinos were to take wagers on whether F-Day will be postponed, I suspect the odds would favor delay, but you are right, Secretary Napolitano has made no formal announcement either way.

I am sure that when it comes, pro or con, it will be big news, and no one in the CNMI will miss it.

P.S. I am not the Saipan blogging community's walking spell-check. When someone I admire and respect repeatedly makes the same error, occasionally I will helpfully point it out (as I hope others would do for me), but I don't undertake this service on a general basis.

To have the sex trade industry or not is a community matter. I would vote NO. If the resident citizens of the NMI feel the need, or think it has long term economic benifit for our islands, I would hope that we could be the best at it. The current, and past situation has been a disgrace.

As for the immigration problems associated with non-citizens, all the green card/exploitation issues would be solved. Who knows, if we added 5k hot PR girls, JAL may return and that is economic development.

Do you think we could use stimulus money to fly them here?

(5k x 1000. = 5 mil)

I think this would be a good opportunity for local businesses to actual hire citizens, and actually pay them an actual living wage. You might be surprised, people may actually be motivated to show up to work.

That being said, the PR girls sound like a great idea. :-P
