Congressional Trojan Horse

The following is an email sent to me sometime ago. Its enough to make your blood boil or as Glen Beck would say, make the blood shoot out of your eyes. Recently the Democrats under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and others in Congress following the instructions of our great, great fearless leader at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue tried to quickly slip a massive health bill past a sleeping American public. The citizens of Troy slept while the cunning Greeks crawled from their hiding place inside the fabled "Trojan Horse" and fell upon them. This is nothing new it is done all the time by politicians who feel they owe more to special interest who line their coffers with campaign money, than to the voters who actually elect them. They pass laws all the time with little fanfare and often long before the next election, hoping the public will not notice or forget before the next election rolls around. This time however the citizens were not asleep and the alarm was raised and the content of the gilded horse were revealed. The below letter is a clear example of laws which few Americans would support, but are nevertheless passed in the dead of night.



LETTER BY A FLORIDA TEACHER A TEACHER SPEAKS OUT

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. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of immigration.. 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!

Nowadays, it seems like legal citizens who follow the rules are getting shafted, while people who come here illegally get rewarded for being lazy and irresponsible. This is utterly ridiculous! Everyone should be playing by the same rules and there should be no favoritism here, especially for people who have clearly broken the law. That's it!!! We need to demand that our borders are secured.

Glenn Beck has done a great job this week. I caught that that 30 minutes or so of his show today, and it was fantastic.

I friggin' despise these freaks. I want them all to go, save for a handful, in 2010. The more gone the merrier.

Ron Russell said...

Yes, Debbie I can't get enough of Beck---he really says a mouthfull.

Ron Russell said...

Many, many Americans are tired of the loons in Washington and only a very few need to maintain their seats in 2010>

Ron Russell said...

People who come here illegally should be detained and sent home ASAP.

TexasFred said...

The loony libbers are trying to say that Beck and Limbaugh are trying to bring about the death of Obama...

And to that I say... ... ... Uh... Lemme get back yo ya on that...

Ron Russell said...

Should anything happen to Obama---the right will be immediately blamed and half the urban areas in this country will go up in flames.

Matt said...

@ Ron, sad but true. I want his ideas defeated. I want him to leave office in shame-voted out in not a landslide, but a tsunami!

Mr Pink Eyes said...

I hadn't heard of either of those programs but the emailer is correct, there is something really wrong here. How is it that illegal immigrants benefit more from our tax money than we do? We work so they don't have to.

Ron Russell said...

I suspect these programs are only a few out of many thousands we have never heard of.

I bet the folks working at the various foreign consulates could name these programs off the top of their heads.
