Southern California Public School Chaos

Shared on Facebook by a teacher in California who sees firsthand the destruction of America.

“Nine hundred teachers just got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District. They are $650,000 over their annual budget. The following comments by an English teacher help to explain one area that looms large over California’s educational crisis. I hope each person receiving this mail will read it carefully, all the way to the end.

It is sad what is happening to our great country, all because our politicians are afraid they will miss out on a vote. What a travesty!

This English teacher has phrased it the best I’ve seen yet and it should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent.

From a California school teacher…

As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of: I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title-1 school, meaning that its students average in the lower socio-economic and income levels.


Here is a list of Title 1 Schools In California:

Title-I-School-List


Most of the schools you are hearing about are Compton, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, etc., where their students are protesting – these are also Title-1 schools.

Title-1 schools are on the free-breakfast and free-lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking about a glass of milk and a roll. But a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make the Marriott proud.

The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (Our tax dollars at work!)

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more have cell phones.

The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids (More of our tax dollars at work!)

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department, or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything.

My budget was already substantial, but I ended up buying new computers for the Computer Learning Center, half of which, one month later, were carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America. (More and more of our tax dollars at work!)

I have had to intervene several times for young substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them putas (whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical care, free education, free food, free day care, etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country, but also to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society, because they happen to like their gardener and/or housekeeper, and they like to pay less for tomatoes, I say:

Spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the true costs. Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases, etc., etc., etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans, we need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by age 15, and that refuses to assimilate, plus an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness”, that we don’t have the will to do what is needed.

If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressman and Senators.

Cheap labor? Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about? Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage. Consumers don’t want expensive produce. Government will tell you “Americans don’t want the jobs”.

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor”.

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an income tax return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.

Also…

1- He qualifies for Section-8 housing and subsidized rent;

2- He qualifies for food stamps;

3- He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care;

4- His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school;

5- He requires bilingual teachers and books;

6- He qualifies for relief from high energy bills;

7- If they are, or become aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI;

8- Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare (All of this at taxpayer’s {our} expense);

9- He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowner’s insurance;

10- Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material;

11- He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits;

12- Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills and his;

13- The American taxpayers also pays for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

14- Free Child Care (i.e., free babysitting from 6 AM – 6 PM

15- Free ‘mommy makeovers’ after having their children ( includes: tummy tuck and breast lift)

Cheap labor? Yeah right! Wake up people!

These are the questions we should be addressing to the Presidential candidates for either party. We must take action or we will all go down the drain because a few don’t care.

And if you think this is bad, just wait until a Democrat becomes President and the redistribution of wealth becomes the norm in this ex-Democracy. The estimated annual cost now, for state, local and federal, is nearly $400 billion dollars a year.

The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America

High school classroom 1960's
Elementary School, America 1965

It’s Like A Twilight Zone Episode.

Commentary Beyond Control by Mitch Santell

The reason that the U.S. Congress has such a low approval rating is that most Americans believe that all the Congress does is lie.

Don’t believe me? Did you know that lying is legal in the U.S. Congress?

Congress Can Lie


Here is the actual Bill Signed into law:

1996-10-11-HR-3166-False-Statement-Accountability-Act-of-1996-104th-Congress-Oct-11-1996

A special thank you to Patriots for Truth who posted this episode:

It is Legal to Lie to Congress

Tyla and Douglas Gabriel are joined with Michael McKibben to explain how it is now perfectly legal to lie to Congress, or anyone in the U.S. Government..and they can lie to you, too.  Anyone can do it but you have to know what law your are looking for. Learn about the 1996 law they passed while you were “asleep” to make sure that no one goes to jail.

The False Statements Accountability Act (“FSAA”) was sponsored by a one-term freshman Senator William J. Martini (NJ) who later became a federal judge. It included a bizarre Subsection (b) that permits judges, attorneys and parties to lie to Congress, courts and agencies without liability.

Finally, America Protecting America

Commentary On Military, Political and Social Strain by Mitch Santell

Throughout Obama’s first term I was living in New Zealand with my wife (33 1/2 years) and my two younger daughters (now grown). Each and every month I would cringe as  I kept hearing Obama give these Socialist Marxist Speeches.

President Obama sincerely believed that for the U.S. to have real security, it had to give up some of its sovereign rights for the global community.

After 8 years of this, America could not stand pushing the global community anymore and so with President Trump (neither a Republican or Democrat in philosophy), made the following statement to the United Nations. 

Over the past week while thousands if not millions of Americans worried about the cancellation of the State Of The Union, here is what is happening along the Southern border. Not only the border between Mexico and California but now the border between Arizona and Mexico.

Now across America, over 100,000 Police Officers have signed a petition against Nancy Pelosi.

Nancy Pelosi 2019
Nancy Pelosi said no money for the Wall.

Amid all the talk about impeaching President Trump, more than 100,000 people have signed a White House “We the People” petition calling for the impeachment of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, accusing her of treason.

Created by a citizen identified only as “M.G.,” it accuses Pelosi of being a traitor to the American people who is beholden to the interests of illegal immigrants, Big League Politics reported.

The “We the People” petitioning system on the White House website was initiated by the Obama administration. It promises an official response for every petition that gathered more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days. The Pelosi petition was launched just 11 days ago.

The petition further blames the San Francisco Democrat for the recent partial government shutdown. It argues she refused to negotiate with President Trump over funding for border security, causing many federal employees to work without pay for more than a month.

“Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens,” the petition states.

Your Drug Is Not My Drug

Commentary About How We All Self-Medicate by Mitch Santell

From the age of 19 forward coffee became my preferred beverage. Over the years not only have I been passionate about coffee, but I also love to grind my own beans and brew my coffee by a method known as French Press.

pouring coffee one
Coffee, so good when it is fresh.

The reason I start here with coffee is that I used to have so many people ask me, “Why don’t you drink herbal tea?” Usually, I would just respond by stating that “Coffee was my drug of choice.”

During my teens, I was seriously afraid of drugs, especially pills. What did I have so much fear? The answer was and is that I can’t swallow pills and even if I have to take an antibiotic (which thank God is not too often), I have to chew the pill. In my teenage years’ quaaludes and other tablets were offered to me but I turned them down.

One time I went to a party, and there were a pile hash and all kinds of drugs on the table, and literally two minutes later I exited the party.

Faul vs. the original James Paul McCartney.

The was something very profound that the original Paul McCartney (RIP) talked about before his replacement right before Sgt. Pepper in 1966 regarding drugs. Do you remember what it was? Here it is, I am paraphrasing as best I can. It had something to do with the fact that once you take certain drugs, they change you and you can’t go back to who you were, and you may not like who you become after the drug.

Yes, Coffee is still my drug of choice. You know what your drug of choice is but guess what? It’s not my drug!

Living Life As An Algorithm

Commentary and Reflections About Your Soul By Mitch Santell

positive mind positive vibes
Live A Positive Life, I promise you won’t regret it! ~ AfterHollywood.Online

We spend the first half of our life learning how to love and live life, and we spend the second half of our life saying goodbye to all those that we were closest too and loved the most.

The one thing that I know is the strength and power of kindness. The next thing I know is that there will be no sequel to your life, so you had better make every single moment count.

The thoughts in your head may not be your own so may I kindly you suggest that you read this entire blog entry before you tell me I am nuts.

Here is Southern California we have over 4 Million People living in Los Angeles.

For those of us who were around when Los Angeles barely had 500,000 People, we are still in a bit of shock.

What is Los Angeles like now?

L.A. County has 10 Million People, and Los Angeles Proper has 4 Million People. 

A lot of people overseas want to know when Los Angeles died.

Based on careful Algorithm analysis says the end of 1978.

Living In Faith ~ Invisible Energy

Something To Think About By Mitch Santell

I found this on the internet and wanted to share it with you my kind readers and followers:

Invisible Energy

“Just because you cant see something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

There is invisible energy you cant see such as the wind.

You can only see the effect of the wind, but you cant see the wind.

The wind is a invisible energy.

There’s a invisible energy that you use when you use a remote control to control your tv. Or think about how your phone works, how is it that you can talk to someone thousands off miles away, because there is invisible energy that you could only see the effects of this invisible force and so it is with consciousness a invisible energy that exists.”

House of Cards Review, Season 6

A simple review and commentary by Mitch Santell

house-of-cards-kevin-spacey-image (2)
Kevin Spacey was the foundation of House of Cards.

First the commentary…

On March of 2013 I returned to America after living for over 5+ years in New Zealand. One of the things that I had not experienced upon returning to the mainland was Netflix.

When Netflix was started it was not a streaming service, it provided movies by mail. Where could you find Netflix at? Answer: Blockbuster video stores. 

FrankClaire2 (1)
Sorry Folks, the show sucks without Mr. Kevin Spacey.

Now for the review…

There was something that was very different about House of Cards and the drivers of the show were Frank Underwood, Claire Underwood and Doug Stamper.

Each season was better than the previous one.
Each episode felt like the finale.
Each character reminded you of someone you met in politics.
Kevin Spacey played an “Alpha Male” just like President Trump.


Claire Underwood on House of Cards is a brilliant character. It is simply that Claire Understood is way too much like Hillary Clinton for my taste.

SPOILERALERT
The final episode of season 6 is like watching any episode from Season 1-5.

The Power of Gratitude

by Mitch Santell

There is nothing more potent and powerful than Gratitude. It is something that I live by on a daily basis. When you live in gratitude, you can also see if others around you do too. How can you tell? Look, listen and observe. If you find that they are balanced and in synch with their own life, they have it.

Smile, stay as grounded as you can in your body and remember to enjoy the small moments.

#Hashtag Development

This really inspired me by Mitch Santell

Ciaran Blumenfeld wrote a brilliant article on hashtags so check it out along with the link to her Twitter feed.

@CiaranBlu

You’re launching a campaign, hosting an event or trying to get the word out about a cause…

It makes sense to use a hashtag to distinguish your messages from millions of others floating around twitter and instagram. But choosing the right hashtag can be a daunting task. Here are 11 tips to consider, before you hit the # key and send your messages off.

1. Is the hashtag already taken?

This is the first question that bears asking. You can search for posts on both Twitter and Instagram to see if a tag has been used in the recent past. If it has, you should probably move on.

2. Is the hashtag too long?

Twitter recently upped their character limit to 280 (but not in all languages). This helps, but replying and re-tweeting messages can eat up those additional characters fast. Nothing kills a conversation quicker than running out of space, which is sure to happen if you choose a too long hashtag. Plus longer hashtags are more prone to typos and being forgotten.  Try to keep your tag to 10 characters or less.

3. Does the hashtag make sense?

It’s tempting, and often smart, to use initials & abbreviations to keep your hashtag short. But this only works if your audience is already familiar with this form of shorthand. For example, conferences routinely use abbreviations: #BWE12, #NonCon, occasionally adding in the year. If you are shortening a term, make sure to make that shorthand standard and make it public on your site and/or in your marketing materials from as early a date possible to avoid obscurity.

4. Is the hashtag an attention grabber?

Consider adding a short action/emphasis word to your tag if you want to amp up the attention. Words like now, go, win, stop are action oriented and create a reader disruption when combined with your brand/message. Example: #GOBRONCOS, #CRUISENOW

5. Does the hashtag rely on camel casing?

Camel casing (using upper and lower cases to seperate words) a hashtag may look great, and add emphasis, but in practice tends to fall apart. #TheEnd becomes #theend which doesn’t read well sans camel casing. Even worse, camel casing can lead to inappropriate messages.

6. Does the hashtag contain a word that is hard to spell, commonly misspelled or that has more than one spelling?

It’s also a good idea to avoid words that are frequently misspelled or that have more than one spelling. #Caribbean #Grey are two examples.

7. How does the hashtag tell your story? How does it relate to your brand or help you to achieve your ultimate goal?

Keep your goals in mind. Your hashtag should be a reflection of the action or impression you wish to create.

8. Will you be using the hashtag again?

Whether you intend to use the hashtag in a recurring fashion, or not, you should consider whether you could. If your hashtag is an accurate reflection of your long AND short-term goals, it will have legs.

9. How will the hashtag play on other forms of social media?

Even if you don’t plan to use the tag on other sites at this time, consider whether you might want to in the future. Would the tag transfer? If someone used the tag in a Facebook update or wall post, would it register with the reader? The best hashtags are immediately understood and continue to have impact, even when used away from the original medium.

10. Who will (ideally) be using this hashtag?

Keep your user in mind. If they are part of a small special interest group, and are interested in a closed conversation, creating a viral, trending tag is not a priority so much as creating a tag that works well for the group members.

11. Will this hashtag offend or anger anyone?

Before you settle on a hashtag, consider whether there might be any negative fall out. Even if the hashtag has never been used, it could be “owned” in the sense that it is already a common phrase familiar to others & being used by someone else. If your hashtag is unintentionally rude or offensive, it’s unlikely to generate the successful outcome you desire.
