Jeff Bezos' Editorial Board at the Washington Post is complaining that there aren't enough Americans who want to work low-end jobs, so the government needs to import more foreign replacements.

"Typically the [immigrants] do jobs -- tending crops, washing dishes, mowing lawns -- that native-born Americans do not want," the Post claimed. read more


Furious San Francisco 49ers fans are burning Colin Kaepernick jerseys after he refused to stand for the national anthem as part of a racial protest.

One fan even played The Star-Spangled Banner as he set light to the Number 7 shirt, watching with his hand on his chest as it was reduced to ash.

Another, who uploaded a video to Instagram under the handle Nate3914, called the $19million-per-year athlete an 'ignorant son of a b****.' read more

MACON, Ga.

A squealing pet pig with a pickax in its back was running for its life Wednesday as a man with a rifle chased it through Kings Park.

Men putting in a new sunroom in the east Macon-Bibb County neighborhood were first alarmed by gunshots, then the sight and sounds of the wounded animal.

"It was one of the most disgusting things I've ever witnessed before. It was a horrible thing that happened," said Brian Walls, who was installing windows at a nearby house when a man with a .22 rifle shot the pig in the side.

After a second gunshot, Walls figured the pig was dead and tried to ignore what was happening until he heard the pig's painful cries.

"We were in shock to see him out here with a gun shooting in the neighborhood," said Tim Montgomery, who was working with Walls. "They didn't know what they were doing because, you know, if you shoot a pig, you're supposed to shoot it between the eyes or in the back of the head, point-blank, or however they do it humanely."


Children from a German school in Buenos Aires wearing swastika armbands and fake Hitler moustaches attacked pupils from a Jewish school in a resort where several Nazi war criminals lived for decades after the Second World War, including Dr Josef Mengele, Auschwitz's "Angel of Death".

The incident drew swift condemnation for the pupils and the parents who were accompanying them during the school's end-of-course trip to San Carlos de Bariloche, in the Andes. read more
