Are the two of you assuming that these children in Japan, where educational standards, test scores, and knowledge are all higher, are spending large amounts of time helping to keep their school's clean or more time cleaning than learning?
And your children, right now, do not spend all of their time, energy, or concentration solely on learning. There are break times that they spend doing other things and activities. (/quote)
yes, their children, it is okay for them to not have to be responsible adults, they will have the rest of their lives for that.
spending time at schools being an aid and observing, ive seen the kind of schedule that most elementary school age children have, and i feel recess and playtime is an important part of it. they now get maybe 2 breaks. one for fifteen minutes and then one for 30.
there is a completely different culture and view in japan when it comes to children.
i want my child to enjoy being a kid.
i will teach my daughter to be respectful and considerate, like a good parent should do.
im really, really frustrated though because the reason there is no bed space is due to illegal immigration and people without insurance. the hospital cant legally turn anyone away
|world i think all illegal immigrants need to be shipped back to where ever they are from. that dont mean my kids are not gonna be respectful and considerate.i not gonna push my views on my kids.|
I know many people feel that way, and I can understand that viewpoint, but I don't understand why "they" (along with people w/o insurance) should be turned away from getting medical treatment at a hospital. I guess if you're a self proclaimed "trophy wife" with money they should put people out of their beds for you.
|now you know how the native people felt 500 years ago lol|
|Now you people know how every single american race felt when they came over. The germans, the irish, every single ethnicity that came to america was treated in the same crummy way you're treating these people.
Personally, there shouldn't be borders. People should be able to go where the money and the care is. Why should anyone be forced to live somewhere they are going to die or have a bad life? No one should be forced to live somewhere like that.
i think borders prevent spread of disease (yes more about germs i know)
it would be too hectic if everyone could come and go
if there were no borders how could we keep terrorists away? keep track and prevent drugs from crossing over?
keep a not a nice person from running from country to country while he has a warrant for him?
borders dont just hold all the people back from spilling into everywhere
when you think about it they have alot of purpose
If there weren't borders, there would be no nations for the terrorists to hate.
I think cities can be far more effective at controlling drug trafficking than a nation can. Secondly, you could still have "states". I think a state system would work far better than countries.
Countries encourage ethnocentricity, which causes superiority and hate.
If the whole world gave a bless, they could all pitch in to catch a killer.
If you think open borders doesn't work, take a look at europe. It has open borders. It has a collective currency... which is stronger than the american dollar. I think america needs to come out of the isolationist dark-ages and into the new world. The real world. We already have a global economy. Unity is coming.
basiaclly theyve taken over
not all of them. im not saying all mexicans are bad and dont work and live off government money
you cant get a job here anymore
but theres mexican iiligals driving brand new huge trucks. and they use up all of our medicaed and welfare and they lie. most of them lie and have 5 kids and 3 fammilies in the same crowded 3 bedroom house
and its not fair when it gets this bad
|Our country should either dissolve the laws that make it illegal, or enforce them. Enough of this sitting-on-the-fence bull. We're either okay with people not obeying our laws and going through the proper channels to come here, or we're not. Our government needs to make up its mind, but our population needs to make up its mind first. Do we support these laws or not?|
I agree there are some illegal immgrants who have completely taken over. Just about everywhere in Northeastern PA...there are hundreds of mexicans some are legal and some arent. They have caused problems in the past with job opportunities in the area. Yes they do live in large packs. I dont see how they can all live under one roof. I remember one time my friend lived in an apartment with her boyfriend and there was another person living downstairs. I couldnt see how their neighbor could stand having almost 8 mexicans living with her and her family. There were only two bedrooms and one bathroom...thats ridiculous. They prolly shouldnt even being receiving medicaid and welfare b/c like you said its not fair to other ppl who are U.S. citizen. medicaid and welfare is for ppl who really need insurance and help from the gov't. Just a few months ago a politician in Scranton had all the illegals in NEPA to be sent back to Mexico.
Look at this from a humanists' point of view. DOn't think about money or anything else for just a moment.
Down in mexico, living is hard. They can do job 1 up here, and live a lot better than they can doing the same job down in mexico.
Stop thinking of them as "others", as "those mexicans", "those people", etc. They are just like you and me. They are not animals living in "packs". You are dehumanizing them, and that's wrong. They are ordinary people, and all they want is a good life, a good education for their children, and adequet health care.
All they want is clean water, a steady job, and a real income. They want a good roof over their heads; they don't want to live in the squalor they do in the south.
Many immigrants send much of their money back home so that their families can afford health care and food down in mexico.
Are there "bad" immigrants? Illegal aliens who do nothing except mooch off our taxes? Yes. I'd be idiotic not to admit that. But I think (and maybe someone needs to find the statistics on this) that most illegal and legal immigrants are working hard for their money every single day.
