System Scammers And Layabouts

Mar 21, 2011|

More than 18,000 illegal immigrants, plus 14,000 of their relatives, have gained U.S. visas under a new law since 2009 because they were victims of crime. The controversial rules state that if you are a victim of crime and you cooperate, or are 'helpful' with authorities, then you stand a good chance of getting a U visa. Howie wanted to know if any of the listeners knew anyone scamming the system?

I wouldn't. Thought about not reading mistress because. It is kind of amuses me in a way. But all these people who voted for Barack Obama are now are are now angry at him because. They can't get these jobs they thought that for some reason they you know they were beautiful people they were voting for the first black to work. Black president all the stuff that would. You know they had trust funds they would be taken care. You know they were legacies into the Ivy League colleges. And and now it's two years into the Barack Obama regime and and they they can't seem to get a job and it just seems terribly unfair. So there's a story here in in the New York Times is an op Ed piece educated unemployed and -- -- -- Well it it. This despair well. 18774694322. Despite getting Matthew Klein. Who was a research associate at the council on foreign relations CF far. Don't don't tell Michael Savage about CO four or -- or no excuse me Glenn Beck Glenn Beck's one of those crazy about CO far. Anyway obscure -- some of the stuff about these people -- this these these kids so kids can't get jobs. Even though they've. My generation was -- that all we needed to succeed was an education. And hard work tell that to my friend from high school and study Chinese and international relations and a top tier college. He had the misfortune to graduate in the class of 2009. And could find paid work only as a lifeguard and personal trainer. My daughter's a lifeguards. What's wrong with -- a personal trainer. Unpaid intern ships and research institutes led to nothing. After more than a year he yes you guessed -- folks he moved to back in with his parents. The official unemployment rate for this group -- eleven point 2% but for college graduates 25 and over it is only four point 5%. The true unemployment rate for young graduates easy is most likely even higher because it fails to account for those who went to graduate school in an attempt to write out the economics. Storm or fled the country teaching English overseas how many people fled the country teaching which oversees c'mon. Give me break. I know some of whom went to graduate school to write up the economic storm that was pretty stupid which say in retrospect. Yeah I'm gonna -- -- seeking an English major and I can't find apps on in part on a joint school English. Good plan. It would be higher still that accounted for all those young graduates who have given up looking for full time work. In a working part time for any lack of an alternative. This again this is called this the New York Times this is the the Bible of the moon bats Bible. We're supposed to feel sorry for these rich kids. The cost of view from for unemployment is not only financial but also emotional. Bow. Having a job -- supposed to be the reward for hours of SAT prep evening spent on homework instead of with friends. And countless all writers writing papers. The millions of young people who cannot get jobs -- who take work that does not require college education. Are in danger of losing their faith in the future. At all. They're indefinitely postponing the life they wanted to prepared for all that matters is finding rent money. Even if the job market becomes as robust. As it was in 2007. Wasn't there Republican president to -- its profit. Something economists say could take more than a decade. Take a lot longer than a decade if you keep voting for people like Barack Obama yet. My generation will have lost years of career building experience. Maybe they should blame Barack Obama. Now it's my suggestion but this guy is anticipated that we cannot blame Barack Obama. Forty years after all of the messiah. It is simple the blame -- Mubarak for the frustrations -- -- -- people he had been in power longer than -- bill while -- Barack Obama is not such an easy target not if you wanna get published in the New York Times he's not. The speeches democratic legitimacy he is far from the only one responsible for the weakness of the recovery. Yeah that what about jarred putted. Well that. Stevie -- today had written -- a machine with Karl Rove as his co pilot it's their fault. Bush did it. In the absence of someone specific to blame the frustrations simply bills. And there. The absence of someone specific way might -- you appoint people look. Specifically blame it doesn't matter if they haven't been in office for years what does -- matter -- -- the New York Times is to blame at Bush's ball it's cheneys. All the roads Bob. Volume. I got it it it would take art stone but that's all these moon bats they all. -- -- felt this terrible white guilt -- the one of the vote for Barack Obama to make them feel less guilty and now they're stuck with this floundering economy. Floundering foreign policy. Everything is is hold only a draft even even the moon bad Democrats in congress her aura PO but the guy. And it and now. -- -- whose fault is this we can't blame our aero. 1877469432. To do you know some. So I had known that offspring who work who who were losing their in the future. Just that your next without -- cargo -- adjustment. Hey how the -- today Alley. Good at reading that really cheered me up. Yeah I really a -- -- freshmen that are I would ticking off when I was at your high school bell yet now they're. One thing I'd let that thing is that what people person you can blame all that is you're now because. You'd -- people -- is we're not thinking about how much money. It was gonna -- for college. And what other prospects for -- after they got out. There's just -- is there is no object is thinking about whether or not they can make their college education page after it dot. And that -- It's ridiculous I remember when I was -- I called it they interest and values you'll need to figure out what you wanna do. It's -- hearing your junior year of college where what how much money is back down the drain all already. Yeah I would depend on a public -- private I mean it could be over a hundred grand. Exactly I mean I'm I'm. Lately I've been hearing about -- people are going to college to become teachers and they're spending 80000 hours are ideally are its Asian. To be a teacher it's like even think that you're gonna have -- that money back at some point. So it's it's ridiculous. I know well a lot of it at the polling is to how about the way kitty it even he even -- you know says what they do. They can't get a job when they get out of college with -- with their worthless liberal arts degree so they decide to get another worthless liberal arts degree. You know something you can't get. They need there were alerted you to get a job and appreciate your at it and it went something pops up. You take it out that -- about economy -- what about economies are about. And you're not just because you voted for hope Barack Obama doesn't mean that you -- the end of objective thinking about your future. Is now about a normal at this guys gonna do -- Right exactly. If anything that would have been better off voting for John McCain is as bad as pathetic as he probably would have been as the president would have been at least better than Barack Obama.
