Dear Nurse: I find your attitude
reprehensible. You RESENT that people have it better
than you. (Which may or may not be true). I thought that
was why our parents worked hard: To make this a better
country. I thought that`s why people died in wars: to
create a place where people can come searching to make
themselves better. Do you really think that the men and
women who died in WWII cared only about their families?
Those people of different colors and cultures, different
languages and literacy are no different than their
predecessors as immigrants.
- Arizona: Give me
a break. I live in
NYC, a kaleidoscope of color and cultures.
Because no one cared for your
family, we should not mature as a society and care for
the needy? Unless I am mistaken the
Statue of Liberty has no codicil that says: only
give me your legal.
- Moms in your office: and I
thought the complaint was about the breakdown of the
family. Doesn`t seem to be broken with these kids.
Maybe the fact that they don`t
make eye contact is a reflection of your hostility, not
Children running around:
Great, I thought that is what children did.
Just because they ask if you
speak Spanish, does not make them less worthy of your
time. Many of our Grandparents never left their ghettos
to learn "American."
Medicaid: No one did it for you. So just take the
medicines that were invented before 1965, eliminate all
advancements that occurred before 1965. That makes your
life better. Oh yes, and take your parents off Medicare
The system does fail some
immigrant populations. Your perspective here is only
your own, not that of someone who cares at all for
anyone else who is in the least bit different.
Go to Little Italy
circa 1915, The
Bronx, 1930, all the
Chinatowns (whose children now DOMINATE our
educational system) America is made up of multicultural
communities. WE ARE
Car seats: Good let`s just let
children, innocents, die. Good attitude.
One final point: don`t know what
books you read, but one I like is the Bible, and it
says: we are ALL created in Gods image. Not only those
that think and talk like us.
Of course, “School Nurse” is spending her life providing
“care” for these immigrants. Her question is why
Americans should have to finance their own
dispossession. Mr. Mantel`s reaction shows one of my
main contentions in ALIEN NATION, that the really
hysterical emotion on this debate is on the immigration
enthusiast side. Note the malign influence of the
Statue of Liberty myth, and the complete
incomprehension of the fact that
Ellis Island era immigrants were legal, screened for
health and propensity to become a
public charge in a way which today`s illegals, by
definition, are not.
