Keep that letter away from school officials and others in the PC crowd. They'll likely use it to press endangerment charges on the poor woman.

Great letter, thanks for posting it.

My job is driving a city transit bus. I get lots of entitlement attitude people, from age four to ninety. It's not just younger ones. I'm tired of seeing people get off at government housing, wearing $200 jackets and shoes, with $300 smart phones and bags of steak and beer. They can't pay their rent, but have plenty of "bling". The parking lots have plenty of newer cars; some with those big $1000 wheels added.

Many of these people ride the bus every day, all day, for "something to do". I'm busting my butt in traffic for them, and can't afford the lifestyle they have, from our taxes. Something is very wrong with this system.

I've experienced similar. I was roofing a house years ago in an isolated area where the same person owned them all and rented them out.

I was busting my butt roofing and some of the neighbors would go out during the day and kept coming back home with Shopping bags. I kept saying to myself, these people must work at night. This one house next door is one that we just finished remodeling. Then more Shopping and a day or two later, the TV Dish guy showed up. Then more Shopping. I finally got to ask the owner if they all worked at night. He said "Are you kidding me" ??!! "Most of them are on Welfare" !! "The Government also helps pay their Rent" !! The shopping lady had a pretty nice car to boot...

I was also listening to a local town hall meeting recently and one lady asked "why is it that everyone who comes in my store and pay with those EBT cards (or whatever they are) have Piercings and Tatoo's" ??

...what a country.

I remember after my sophomore year in college my father got me a summer job on construction as a laborer. I wasn't afraid of hard work and the job was digging trenches for putting telephone conduit through the projects in Lowell, Mass as well as a street. A laborer would check grade and level it out, etc. I would be in the hot sun with my D-handle doing the job de jour and I remember looking up in the afternoon and seeing all the men sitting out on their balconies drinking beer watching me work. I remember one day was in the 90's and humid and I was digging holes to set streetlight concrete bases in. There wasn't a breath wind and the holes were 3'x3' by 4' deep. They had to be hand dug so have at it. As I was working a beer truck showed up in one of the projects and off loaded about 20 cases of beer, then went to the next one and repeat.

We had a major drug dealer arrested up here yesterday. They seized $225,000 in cash and it was reported he was collecting Social Security disability.

I wonder if the Feds will be dumb enough to keep sending him checks while he is in Prison. And then they scream SS is running out of money. I figured if the guy was an illegal alien it would be the trifecta.

If the guy was illegal, they'd probably drop the charges and praise him for being a fine example of adapting to American culture.......:eek:

One bus I'd really like to drive is the one that unloads on the other side of the border.

I have heard that plenty of gov't forms and offices say that if you are illegal, you cut to the head of the line and get instant bennies.

I'm gonna try it if things get bad. Hello, my name is Pedro and I don't have any paperwork or documents. I'm hungry, need a place to sleep, have to check my facebook account and I have to call my friends. Can you help me?

Before you knew it, you'd have a nice apartment with satellite TV, a free cell phone and a free bus pass. A card full of money you could use to buy anything, every month.

I got no problem with the legal process to citizenship, but the illegals and all the free stuff has to go......
