Yes, Walter, it appears the whole world has gone crazy.
"Don't open the front door if immigration officials knock. If you are taken into custody, tell them your name and nothing else. Definitely don't sign anything"
The quote above is the opening line from this article telling ILLEGAL immigrants what to do when and if the lawful United States government comes hunts them down as criminal invaders. Not only is this a blatant kick in the nuts to all the legal citizens of this country who try their best to work hard, pay taxes, and obey the law, it ties up an already over worked legal system that had enough to deal with before idiots and criminals started over running the southern border. These 'advocacy' groups are at best aiding and abetting known criminals, and in any other 'normal' criminal situation would be charged with a crime.
These criminal aliens and their co-conspirators often meet to discuss issues concerning their crimes and how to get away from being detained, so why aren't they arrested and deported and the people driving the get away car charged with crimes? Probation and a hefty fine seem warranted here, as putting these morons in jail just puts an increased burden on the taxpayer.
They even poke fun out our tax payer funded law enforcement efforts, oblivious to the fact that in any other country in this world they would be locked up INSTANTLY when found with no hope of getting out:
"Volunteers took part in a role-playing exercise. The audience broke into laughter when a woman wearing a vest with "ICE" taped on it burst into the room after knocking loudly on a door.
"I try to make it interactive because it's long and very sad, in a way," (leech) Mendez said."
This situation is funny to you? I hope you receive no tax funded benefits and you get hung up on when you need to call 911.
As one commenter on the above article puts it,
"Then there should be a reward offered for turning these people in, and I believe that would be welcomed by those who have grown tired of watching these people circumvent our laws."
I couldn't agree more.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any more bass ackwards:
Imagine a standardized test. Imagine you failing that test. What would you think might be some reasons you failed? Didn't study? Didn't pay attention in class? Chose to ignore others who came before you and listen to guidance? All legit reasons. However, there is one more, seemingly better reason, that you failed.....your race. That's right. Some people have run out of things to blame their failures on and chalked it up to good ol fashioned racism. Now, this standardized test isn't designed to test your knowledge of unique cultures and ways of life, it is designed to test your ability to read and write and handle math, you know, to prove you are capable of teaching the next generation of adults.
At a time where we constantly hear that the United States lags behind other nations in various subjects, we have this gem:
"Citing the fact that an out sized percentage of black and Hispanic candidates were failing the test, members of the New York state Board of Regents plans to adopt a task force's recommendation to eliminate the literacy exam, known as the Academic Literacy Skills Test, given to prospective teachers."
How on earth is that supposed to teach anyone anything, except blame your race for everything? This does nothing to push our society forward. It's as though some don't want to get on a level playing field. When you can blame the system, you don't have to look in the mirror.
Now this is the most surprising bit of the brain melting article:
"The tests, however, came under intense scrutiny for their alleged racial bias, after just 46 percent of Hispanic test-takers and 41 percent of black test-takers passed it on the first try, compared with 64 percent of white candidates.'
ON A FREAKING LITERACY TEST. I'd like to know exactly who scrutinized it. I can imagine. Here we have Hispanics, whose native language is not even English, did better than blacks. How can anyone in the black community even show their face after such embarrassment? It is no wonder they want to blame the system. Must be too painful to face the actual music.
New York State even does what they can to get everyone to pass, offering "A practice test available for $20 on the New York State Education Department website features John F. Kennedy's inaugural address as one of the reading passages and asks questions like this one: "In which excerpt from the passage do Kennedy's word choices most clearly establish a tone of resolve?"Ian Rosenblum, the executive director of the New York office of the Education Trust, a nonprofit that advocates for high achievement for all students, called the literacy test "a 12th grade-level assessment" -- something a high school senior should be able to pass."
Sounds reasonable to me. If you want to be a teacher, a profession with quite a bit of responsibility, you should be held to a higher standard. If you choose to not learn and make poor decisions while in school youself, why on earth would we want you 'teaching' anyone anything?
