Sometimes I Wonder Who Is In Charge


A TEACHER SPEAKS OUT


I found this article on a friends Face Book Page and I thought
that it was well worth passing on!


This is a Subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have
Adult students at the school where I teach who are NOT 
U.S. Citizens and who get the PELL Grant, which is a federal grant (no 
Payback required) plus other federal grants to go To school? 
One student from the Dominican Republic 
Told me that she didn't want me to find a job for her 
After she finished my program, because she was getting 
Housing from our housing department and 
She was getting a PELL Grant which paid for her total 
Tuition and books, plus money leftover. 
She Was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT 
CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which 
Is a special program (check it out - I did) for 
Immigrants and it pays for child Care and all sorts of needs while they go to 
School or training. The one student I just mentioned Told me she was not going to be a U.S. Citizen because She plans to return to the Dominican Republic someday 
And that she 'loves HER country.' 
I asked her If she felt guilty taking what the U.S. Is giving her 
And then not even bothering to become a citizen and 
She told me that it doesn't bother her, because that 
Is what the money is there for! 
I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if you
ARE a U.S. Citizen, you don't qualify for their 
Program. And all the while, I am working a full day, 
My son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and 
Everyone in my family works and pays for our Education. 
Something is wrong here. I am  Sorry, but after hearing that they want to sing the 
National Anthem in Spanish - enough is enough. That's a real slap in the 
Face. It was written by Francis Scott Key and Should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the translation -- not Even close.
I don't  Care whether this offends someone or not but this is 
MY COUNTRY. IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP -- please 
Pass this along. I am not against immigration -- I 
Just expect immigrants to come through like everyone
Else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; 
Have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND 
LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the 
Past -- and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Obama's Shadow Government

By Charles Krauthammer I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).
OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to…

THE GUN LAW JOKE

THE GUN LAW JOKE

The man charged with shooting five co-workers at a Maryland granite company this week, killing three of them, is a felon with dozens of arrests and a history of attacking people he worked with. With such a troubled past, how was Radee Prince able to land a decent-paying job and acquire a gun?
The alleged gunman got jobs, handguns and who knows what else despite his long criminal past and workplace violence charges and they are saying It appears he may have slipped through the cracks of the criminal justice system. I think he did not slip through any cracks; the courts just open the door for him and let him walk out. Since the shooting, at least two local officials have questioned whether he should have been out on the street. Well, that is a no-brainer!
WHAT HAS THE MAN BEEN ARRESTED FOR? Prince had more than 42 arrests in Delaware. LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN HE HAD FORTY TWO ARREST IN DELAWARE ALONE, and there were several more arrest in Maryland and Washington. In 2003, he…
