various hate groups, membership in the Klan has grown at an alarming rate. Hate the blacks? No - the Klan is preaching their new sermon "Hate the Mexicans," and, from their recent growth in members, they are preaching it very well.
In most school systems, school enrollment comes from "zones." In other words, a zone is usually an area surrounding a school, and people outside that area can only attend that school if there is room after residents of the zone have been taken care of. Did you know a Mexican who is not a legal resident can go into most any school and the school has been instructed to accept them regardless of where they live?
Did you know a Mexican can go into most any public hospital, not show any proof of residency, and still get treatment?
I could go on and on with examples, but I think you get the idea. Now, what is wrong with Mexicans? I don't think there is anything wrong with the Mexicans. What's wrong is our country - we have gotten way too good! By good, our government has passed way too many laws insuring that any special interest group or minority has to be handled in a "special" way. If you have read my column over the years, you already know I believe the work ethic we used to have in this country is long gone. We have created a system where almost anyone who falls below what we deem "middle class" is now eligible for some kind of government hand out. We have many Americans who don't pay a dime in income tax, yet get an income tax refund check for thousands of dollars, plus, get food stamps to help with their groceries, reduced housing, and free lunch and medical care for their children. Isn't it ironic that many lower income Americans who are receiving all these benefits they do not have to pay for hate the Mexicans the most?
The biggest problem with the Mexicans is they come to America with a strong work ethic and quickly see there is no need for that here. Ever hear the old saying "When in Rome, do as the Romans?"
