Not to point fingers at California,
but why would you give free healthcare
to illegal immigrants
when your streets are littered
with homeless legal residents,
trash, and tents.
California is a beautiful place,
so let’s keep it that way.
@CNN @FOX4 @NBCNews @DonaldJTrumpJr
exactly @HerschelWalker (although, took the liberty to correct a spelling error there, but, other than that, it's all you) so thank you; and a thank you also goes to @ fox news for where I found it.
this is my state, precisely -- be it of the physical or in the shadows of my mind.
But, speaking of football, here's the kicker...
California officials have estimated the benefits would be available to about 90,000 low-income illegal immigrants at a cost of $98 million per year.
To pay for part of it, the state agreed to start taxing people who don’t have health insurance. It’s a revival of the individual-mandate penalty that had been on the books nationwide under former President Barack Obama’s health-care law until Republicans in Congress eliminated it as part of the 2017 overhaul to the tax code.yup, you heard that right.
California lawmakers not only wish to cover the healthcare for poor illegal immigrants, they wish to pay for it, in part, on the backs of poor American citizens with no health insurance -- issuing them a penalty tax! Here's more from Arnold Ahlert, @The Patriot Post.
someone please explain what universe this makes any sense?
explaining the twisted nature of all of this --- let's go to Town Crier Tucker....last night...
"No one is above the law," they thunder. Except, of course, the more than 20 million foreign nationals currently living in our country illegally, all under the care and the protection of the Democratic Party. They are, by definition, above the law. We can't punish them, Democrats tell us; that would be racist.
...All crimes are no longer allowed to be acknowledged as crimes. There are huge new classes of people who are literally above the law.
for more, go here.
California's illegals are being treated as if they are above the law...and yet, the average poor American living in California...the same Californian who can't afford health insurance... not so fast, suddenly there is a law for you to follow; YOU, my dear Californian, you get punished.
For more on the lawlessness at the border, go here.
and for more kicks up the wazoo, here's how Tucker finishes --
What you're watching from the left is really an attack on society itself. The basic bargain in any society is straightforward: People who follow the rules get rewarded, people who don't get punished. If you get rid of that standard, then everything inverts. Suddenly, power flows to the worst people in your society, the most ruthless and aggressive. Decent law-abiding people, meanwhile, are mocked. They're just suckers who can be exploited by everyone else.
That's where we're heading, by the way and fast. It's pretty obvious when you look around. The threads are frayed. It's coming apart - hundreds of years of hard work and self-discipline designed to create what we used to call "civilization" before the term civilization was deemed racist.hmmm let's talk civilization, shall we?
- an advanced state of human society, in which a high level of culture, science, industry, and government has been reached.
- those people or nations that have reached such a state.
- any type of culture, society, etc., of a specific place, time, or group: Greek civilization.
- the act or process of civilizing, as by bringing out of a savage, uneducated, or unrefined state, or of being civilized: Rome's civilization of barbaric tribes was admirable.
- cultural refinement; refinement of thought and cultural appreciation: The letters of Madame de Sévigné reveal her wit and civilization.
- cities or populated areas in general, as opposed to unpopulated or wilderness areas: The plane crashed in the jungle, hundreds of miles from civilization.
thank you, @ dictionary.com
what makes America attractive to people from other countries, other cultures, IS our level of sophistication of civilization; our high level of advancement in most areas of importance to a life well lived is here -- from the culture, itself, to the sciences, to the extent of individual and collective industry, to the standard of living, to the very ability to advance in society as an individual, to the highest level of health care in the world and fully available from sea to shining sea. We got it all going on, in America.
The illegal immigrants are leaving a less-civilized society and coming to America to reap her benefits, like a parasite (just keepin' it real, as always, here on the old g thang).
SO here's a refresher -- as I know this girl has said just so many times before --
By definition, a parasite is "an organism that lives in or on an organism of another species (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other's expense."
Yes, organism -- as in something best defined as "an individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form; it's synonyms include: living thing, being, creature, animal, plant, structure, life form, entity, body; it's also recognized as the material structure of an individual life form.
thank you @ Google search
There used to be a requirement for ALL immigrants coming to America to have, in place, a host -- someone who would take full responsibility for all costs, all needs, including shelter, healthcare, and welfare in every way, until such time the immigrant could fully assimilate into civilization, the American culture, on their own.
Now -- however -- the individual host mandate has been foolishly replaced by government, like that in California. And democrats are leading this charge.
Now, illegal immigrants who illegally break the law and cross our border, human traffic, leech government resources, assault border patrol, run roughshod over every law, rule, stipulation to comply, let alone be responsible enough to show up for your very own asylum hearing, get a pass?! Are you serious? All the while, American taxpayers, who can't afford a damn thing anymore being trillions of dollars in debt --not counting personal debt -- have to foot the bill? Are you serious?
As the world turns, in America -- as we keep kicking the can down the road, as we keep kicking ourselves up the politically correct butt, as we keep kicking it via the social media mayhem of the world we have created, as we keep kicking it towards the total absence of individual liberty through wanton socialist dreams -- there will come a day when we will all wake up and America will be a civilization that once was. We will be kicked to smithereens and six feet under; the only trace will live inside the history books, and right alongside Greece and Rome, under the heading of fallen civilizations we have known and loved.
what a kick in the derriere...
just a euphemistic term for a person's buttocks :)
just can't stop google searching definitions...
somebody, make it stop.
so this is where we all must take a knee on the sidelines, letting it all just happen right before our very eyes? Are you serious?
NO. Not on my watch.
Oh @HerschelWalker ! -- thank you for lighting a fire under this girl this morning! I love you, man!
To all my muses of the morning -- Herschel, Tucker, The Patriot Post, Dictionary dot com, Google...put it all together and it's just another day the old G thing kicks it out of the park (and apparently, it's also the same day she lost her humility somewhere along the way, not sorry...teehee)
Make it a Good Day, G
