Fw: Free Lunch

 THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH FOLKS...
Free Lunch...
900 teachers just got laid off from the  Los Angeles Unified School District . They are $650,000 over their annual budget. 

The following English teacher helps to explain one area that looms large over California 's educational crisis.

THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON'T CARE. This English teacher has phrased it the best I've seen yet. 
This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent
>From a California school teacher - - -

"As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:
I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic
and income levels

Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park , etc.. where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten.
 (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK) 
I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have
cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls(some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK) 
I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing
funding
for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America  ..
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas"
(whores ) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical, free education, free food, day care, etc, etc, etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans,
We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won't have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an
American culture that has become so weak  and worried about"political correctness " that we don't have the will to do anything about it.

If this makes your
blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressmen and Senators.

CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage.

Consumers don't want expensive produce.

Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs.

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a
myth , a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."
Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for
$5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents,
he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.
He qualifies for
Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.

He qualifies for
food stamps..
He qualifies for
free (no deductible),
no
 co-pay) health care.
His
children get free breakfasts and lunches at school. 
He
requires bilingual teachers and books.
He
qualifies for relief from high energy bills...
If
they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at
(our) taxpayer's expense
 .

He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers provide
Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in
benefits. 
Working Americans
are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills AND his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT!
Wake up people! 
THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR EITHER PARTY. 'AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON'T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM AT ONCE!'

THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS
 POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON'T CARE

So the free lunch goes wasted... but half the kids are obese?

The department is strapped for cash.. but you were "forced" to spend an extra 700K which you didn't really need?

Thx 4 Fish said...

A bravely unsigned letter ;) from a "teacher" with many colorful underlined words and accusations and again no links to any supporting DATA or stories of illegal immigrants found living in Section 8 housing with food stamps and Medicare. (Where are the tabloid investigators who can hack celebrity phones but can't find one of these!) I'm sure my congressman would be very impressed with this anonymous screed of unproven accusations.

Stupid Conserva-tards don't know a thing about economics. And the ones who claim they do come from Duke University (and that is a retard school!)

Perhaps this article could offer a more accurate account of the problem

After reading this I’m convinced they missed at least one teacher they should have laid off.

Yaaargh! How can anyone even read this multicolor, multi-font-size underlined mess?

This is what happens when you skip K-12 and go straight from crayons to the internet.

A public school teacher complaining about too much funding? Now I know this e-mail's fake.

He qualifies for food stamps..

No. Illegal immigrants are NOT eligible for CalFresh (food stamps), Healthy Families (health care assistance), Section 8 housing, or Social Security benefits. And you can't get food stamps (SNAP) while on SSI disability.

I have no idea what the "energy bills" comment is about.

In short: Conservatives think that every legal immigrant is an illegal immigrant.

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper

Well, that just about sums up the author's economic class, doesn't it?

Valeyard said...

Also, this one's been floating around for several years, as there are a few Snopes forum threads nit-picking it.

The most salient observation: What actual teacher gets put in charge of a $700,000 budget?

The usual mishmas of knee-jerk racism and fear-mongering around a grain of truth.

Truth: The American economy is failing millions of people, and a lot of poor white people are living in economically precarious situaitons.

Reason for above: Republican economic policies designed and implemented by the ultra-rich to benefit the ultra-rich, and voted for by ignorant dupes.

What they want you to beleive: OMG IT'S ALL THE FAULT OF THE BROWN PEOPLE!!! OMGOMGOMG THE BROWN PEOPLE ARE COMING AND THEIR BREEDING KIDS!!! OMG BE VERY VERY AFRAID!!! (And please keep voting to make us richer while we laugh at you all the way to the bank, you dumb fucks!)

Bingo to last Anon post. That's it in a nutshell.

Keep *blaming* it on teh poorz or teh brownz or teh illegalz, whilst voting against your own interests and allowing the mega-rich to rip you all. All done in the brain-dead and selfish notion that, if somehow/some day you become mega-rich, you, too, will not want to pay your *fair share.* so let's not tax the rich today bc who knows? Maybe tomorrow I, too, will be rich, and then I, too, can be a selfish greedhead who pisses on those who make less money than me.... but pardon me while I rush piously to Church so I can feel all self-righteous and vindicated.

Onwards "Christian" soldiers...
