Quoted from somewhere on the internet because it makes a lot of sense to me! I witnessed this happening first hand. Maybe this is why I'm always so pissed off these days!
You know back in the day, the 50's the early sixties Americans used to be some of the most normal, admirable people in the world. There was a quiet dignity about them even the working classes. Even among the vulgar, they had something. Then right around Carter and then Reagan I started noticing that they weren't so "normal" or cool anymore. They got weird. They said weird things, did weird things. I kept waiting for them to go back to being normal and instead they just kept getting stranger and more peculiar, like watching your old aunt go dotty and then finally wandering around her smelly dirty house in the same old nightgown and house coat and stupid slippers with her greasy hair in perpetual curlers. Eventually thanks to continual boozing and a total collapse in discipline she lost the ability to even speak in any coherent language, and was reduced to babbling like a baby. A very smelly ugly wrinkled sack of shit baby. Disgusting.
USA in the 50's; Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest.
USA today; morbidly obese transvestites wearing pantihose full of shit staggering around the aisles of Wal Mart.
I always like it when they open their mouths before actually knowing what their talking about.
Alyssa Milano Rips ICE For Sting Operation Using Fake University. It Was Created Under The Obama Administration.
On Monday, alerted that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had arrested roughly 250 students since January on immigration violations as part of a sting operation involving a fake university, actress Alyssa Milano, a fervent opponent of ICE, tweeted, “OH MY GOD. ICE has arrested about 250 students who were enrolled at a fake university set up by ICE to lure in students.”
Someone might alert Milano —a strident voice consistently ripping the Trump administration for its immigration policy — of one little fact: the University of Farmington in Michigan was created during the Obama Administration in 2015. The sting operation was code-named “Paper-Chase.” The Detroit News reported in January 2019 that eight “recruiters” for the university who hailed from India were charged with visa fraud and harboring aliens for profit. Those eight recruiters allegedly made more than $250,000 from the university, in lieu of recruiting students.
Prosecutors argued that the students enrolled in the university so they could retain their student-visa status and stay in the U.S. despite being aware “that they would not attend any actual classes, earn credits or make academic progress towards an actual degree,” as The New York Times reported. The Times said the recruiters were “accused of enlisting at least 600 people to enroll in the school.”
Matthew Schneider, the United States attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, stated in a news release, “We are all aware that international students can be a valuable asset to our country. But as this case shows, the well-intended international student visa program can also be exploited and abused.” Former federal prosecutor Peter Henning stated, “It’s creative and it’s not entrapment. The government can put out the bait but it’s up to the defendants to fall for it.”
In a sentencing memo for one of the recruiters, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Helms wrote, “Their true intent could not be clearer. While ‘enrolled’ at the University, one hundred percent of the foreign citizen students never spent a single second in a classroom. If it were truly about obtaining an education, the University would not have been able to attract anyone, because it had no teachers, classes, or educational services.”
The Times added, “Each of the foreign citizens who ‘enrolled’ and made ‘tuition’ payments to the University knew that they would not attend any actual classes, earn credits, or make academic progress toward an actual degree in a particular field of study,” the indictments said, adding that the students knew that ‘discretion should be used when discussing the program with others.’”
Out of the approximately 250 students arrested on administrative charges, “nearly 80% were granted voluntary departure and departed the United States,” the Detroit office of ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) told the Free Press in a statement Tuesday. Out of the remaining 20%, about half of them have received a final order of removal; some of them were ordered removed by an immigration judge, and others “were given an expedited removal by U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” said HSI Detroit. The remaining 10% “have either filed for some sort of relief or are contesting their removals with Executive Office for Immigration Review,” said HSI Detroit.
I love that I don't have to register "as" anything. Just have a valid drivers license with correct address. Amazing. Wisconsin prefers to know that I am eligible to vote where I do over what my party affiliation is. Therefore, I will vote in the primary and vote for some lame demonrat. Joe seems a likely choice for me.
You should try arguing with these lunatics. You suddenly become the crazy person and are constantly insulted.
I mean seriously where is the mega thread on Global Warming around here? I was on a sports site in the "Cave" (hidden by default because most just want to get away and not think about real things). But they freaking named the thing Politics, Religion, and Global Warming. One of those things is NOTHING like the others. Yet it has become a cult or Religion for these poor young people who have been indoctrinated and cannot offer a single thought on their own.
