Illegal Migrant Wave Overwhelming School Districts

 

 

 

 

‘ Municipal school systems around the country are gearing up to absorb tens of thousands of children who arrived illegally from Central America for the new school year, The Wall Street Journal reported.

  The influx, mostly from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, will stress the resources of schools from large metropolitan areas to small towns from California to New York. A minimum of 37,000 children who have been placed with sponsors as of July 31 are eligible to attend public school, according to the Journal.

  Among the systems expected to be most heavily impacted are Texas, where over 5,000 illegal migrant pupils will be showing up for school as well as New York and California, which will each get about 4,000 arrivals, the Journal reported.

  Many will come with psychological scars requiring trauma counseling. Almost all will need remedial help in learning English. Every single one will have access to subsidized nutritional programs.

  Public schools are obligated by the federal government to enroll the children regardless of their immigration status. Alberto Carvalho of Miami-Dade County Public Schools said, “We have both a legal and moral obligation to teach these kids,” the Journal reported. “

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

 

 

Entitlement Nation

 

 

 

 

” Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.
 
  That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

  These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.”

 

 

Have a look at the numbers …

 

 

” In 2012, according to the Census Bureau, approximately 103,087,000 people worked full-time, year-round in the United States. “A full-time, year-round worker is a person who worked 35 or more hours per week (full time) and 50 or more weeks during the previous calendar year (year round),” said the Census Bureau. “For school personnel, summer vacation is counted as weeks worked if they are scheduled to return to their job in the fall.”

  Of the 103,087,000 full-time, year-round workers, 16,606,000 worked for the government. That included 12,597,000 who worked for state and local government and 4,009,000 who worked for the federal government.

  In the last quarter of 2011, according to the Census Bureau, approximately 82,457,000 people lived in households where one or more people were on Medicaid. 49,073,000 lived in households were someone got food stamps. 23,228,000 lived in households where one or more got WIC. 20,223,000 lived in households where one or more got SSI. 13,433,000 lived in public or government-subsidized housing.”

 

   Anyone can do this math , the system is unsustainable … The question is , ” By accident or by design ? ”

Elderly Lose Milk and Butter Because Of Rising Cost Of Muslim Immigrants

 

 

” This story is about a municipality in Sweden, but it could be about any number of countries in Europe, and for that matter it could also be about the United States.

Muslim immigration leads to high costs in violence and welfare, and the elderly end up suffering as all the money goes to pay for integration course for violent Muslim teens and their father and his four wives and their nineteen kids.

The money has to go somewhere and the social safety net paid into by the natives is embezzled, hijacked and looted to pay for the medical and criminal expenses of the Islamic colonists and settlers.”

Millions Improperly Claimed U.S. Phone Subsidies

 

 

 

 

” The U.S. government ( Taxpayers ) spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven’t proved they are eligible to receive them.

The Lifeline program—begun in 1984 to ensure that poor people aren’t cut off from jobs, families and emergency services—is funded by charges that appear on the monthly bills of every landline and wireless-phone customer. Payouts under the program have shot up from $819 million in 2008, as more wireless carriers have persuaded regulators to let them offer the service.

A review of five top recipients of Lifeline support conducted by the FCC for the Journal showed that 41% of their more than six million subscribers either couldn’t demonstrate their eligibility or didn’t respond to requests for certification.

Suspecting that many of the new subscribers were ineligible, the Federal Communications Commission tightened the rules last year and required carriers to verify that existing subscribers were eligible. The agency estimated 15% of users would be weeded out, but far more were dropped.

The carriers—AT&T T +0.62% Inc.; Telrite Corp.; Tag Mobile USA; Verizon Communications VZ -0.05% Inc.; and the Virgin Mobile USA unit of Sprint Nextel Corp. S +1.04% —accounted for 34% of total Lifeline subscribers last May. Two of the other largest providers, TracFone Wireless Inc. and Nexus Communications Inc., asked the FCC to keep their counts confidential. Results for the full program weren’t available.

The program is open to people who meet federal poverty guidelines or are on food stamps, Medicaid or other assistance programs, and only one Lifeline subscriber is allowed per household.

The program, which is administered by the nonprofit Universal Service Administrative Co., has grown rapidly as wireless carriers persuaded regulators to let people use the program for cellphone service. It pays carriers $9.25 a customer per month toward free or discounted wireless service.

Americans pay an average of $2.50 a month per household to fund a number of subsidized communications programs, including Lifeline.”

… TO ‘RECYCLE’ MONEY BACK TO DONORS

 

 

 

 ” Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute, said President Barack Obama had a “recycling” program that used crony capitalism to reward its campaign contributors, who would then funnel money back to the Obama campaign.

Appearing on Fox News’s one-hour special on Thursday about the “District of Corruption” movie, Schweizer said crony capitalism was so rampant in the Obama administration that Obama campaign bundlers received more than $21,000 on average in government-backed loans and grants for every dollar they contributed to the Obama campaign.

Schweizer said the Obama administration treated taxpayer dollars as “gift bags” to give to its top donors, which he called “the Obama recycling program.” “

 

 

 

Amtrak’s $16 burger

” “I just went into this McDonald’s, and I could buy a drink for a dollar and a hamburger for a dollar. But if you buy a hamburger on Amtrak, it costs the taxpayers $6.65,” Mica said.

  The media event was a follow-up to a Thursday hearing that focused on the.railroad’s food and drink losses. A hamburger costs Amtrak $16.15, with riders paying $9.50, according to committee figures. Taxpayers pick up the remaining $6.65, Mica said. “

  “Ten inconvenient truths about the national debt”

Here is truth number one .
 

” 1.) The amount by which the public debt — the portion of the national debt not borrowed by the
U.S. government from funds it administers — has increased since President Obama took office
is unprecedented, not politics as usual: more than $4.75 trillion (more than 75%), according
to the Treasury Department. If the president’s second-term budget is implemented, he will end up (according to the Congressional Budget Office) increasing the public debt by $8.9 trillion. That exceeds the public debt incurred by all previous presidents combined — by more than $2.6 trillion. “

No surprises here for those of us who have been paying attention . Just confirmation of what we’ve known all along .

  “TAMPA — More than 3 1/2 years after the president’s celebrated signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act , the program
remains a hot target for critics, who
view the billions in federal spending as ripe for waste, fraud and abuse.

  And now, a new report is confirming that very fact, demonstrating how Florida played host to multiple tales of inefficient, unaccountable and, in some cases, lost stimulus dollars — millions
and counting. “

Yes , only four . If you read about anymore in one sitting you might become violently ill . 

 

Top 4 Most Wasteful Michelle Obama Vacations

 

Michelle-Obama

More Imperial Behavior

From “the man of the people “… 

Mr 1% is at it again … as the Free Beacon reports :

  “Between 100 and 200 Chicago police officers will secure the perimeter at the Saturday wedding of Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, which President Obama and the first family will attend:

ANCHOR ABC CHICAGO: President Obama and the first family will head to Chicago later today. Among the president’s plans is the wedding of Laura Jarrett, daughter of Obama senior adviser Valeire Jarrett. Chopper 7 HD flew over the backyard of the Kenwood home that will be hosting the wedding. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago police will be providing security. It is being reported that between 100 and 200 police officers will help secure perimeter around the wedding.”

 
As if we aren’t in difficult enough financial shape , now the taxpayer is expected to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars so the daughter of an UNELECTED official can get married ? And an anti-American communist official at that ..

   When will this criminal madness end ?

“The government has been bailing out the giant, insolvent banks for years. (Many of the bailed out banks are foreign.)
That is preventing the economy from recovering… like countries that have grabbed the bull by
the horns .
   The government has allowed the amount of derivatives to reach 1.2 quadrillion dollars . “

More hope and change from the ” Great Divider Uniter ” . Remember when Obama fulfilled his pledge to be a uniter and to end the partisanship that ruled the Bush era ? Nah , me neither 

House Democrats and their staff are meeting tomorrow to discuss racial issues and fiscal policy with the founder of an organization that believes “right wing rhetoric” undermines racial justice.

Maya Wiley — a civil rights attorney who has ”litigated, lobbied the U.S. Congress and developed programs to transform structural racism in the U.S. and in South Africa” — will address the Democrats.

  Let’s raise taxes you cheap b…..ds . The government is being starved by your parsimony.

Isn’t the harvest that we are reaping from the seeds of the entitlement culture sown by
the progressive left a wonder to behold ?

“In 2012, Americans will pay approximately $4.041 trillion in taxes, which is $152 billion, or 3.9%, more than they will spend on housing, food, and clothing. … Between 1929 and the early 1980s, aggregate tax collections were less than total expenditures on housing, food, and clothing. From 1929 to 1980, tax liabilities grew from $10 billion to $751 billion, while expenditures on housing, food, and
clothing grew from $41.6 billion to $775.7 billion. In 1982, total tax collections exceeded expenditures on those items. “

   Gee if the government safeguards our medical information as well as they manage our financial info what on earth do we have to fear ?
   George Orwell is looking more prescient by the hour .
