I'm amazed at the response to the "POEM"
Paula, I'll show you immigrant "professionals" that have milked the system for all it's worth, and government handouts that have inadvertantly supported terrorist activities against the USA.
I'll show you a South Vietnamese General that took a job as a janitor and achieved the great American dream through hard work and no handouts.
Screaminghollow, we have folks from the Sunbury and Williamsport area that drive to work in Harley, or Cat, and drug abusers sent to our area from Harrisburg, York, and Lancaster areas for ummm "re-hab?? Seems to be a rather poor swap.
Educational help? Knights of Columbus, Masons, Grainge, and Churches everywhere are offering free money for education, however most of them want to see the results of their investments.
I know of one case where we made some contributions to the education of a "REFUGEE'S" education, and asked to see the GPA of that student, She came to us with here grades and a plea of problems understanding the courses, so we believed her and invested MORE money in a tudor, and guess what we got in return?? A fantastic gynecologist, serving the rural area that believed in her!
My Point? There really are two sides to every page, and as you can see I've seen both of them, and my faith in mankind is still not diminished! I will say however that I do not expect too much of my fellow man, so I am seldom disapointed.
My idea of charity? A family moved to our area from the the Bronx borough of New York City, within a month of moving here, the old farmhouse they bought burned to the ground. The first thing they recieved was a home to live in, then a freezer, soon it was filled, and shortly thereafter their home was rebuilt,,, not one tax dollar was spent, not one dollar changed hands as cash, but the family of 4 never went without!!
I have a problem with politicians spending my tax dollars as they see fit, and I have a problem with them opposing the faith based initiative, or local allocation of tax monies for local purposes. I have little tollerance of "ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS" recieving any benefits at all.
Salmoneye, my hat's off to you, and your family!!
Finally to LENORE,, your "POEM" has been around since long before I got a 'puter, and it was funny then and it's funny now, don't lose your sense of humor, and don't quit posting, this is more life than I've seen out of us old farts in a long time.

Not all freeload, but they usually have a college degree. The ones that do & there are many, should earn it.
A senitor once said, 'It is criminal to tax the hard working & hand it out to the unwilling & able. It should be against the law. The US has lost most of its morals & standards of decently. Mind you, ADC & simular is a different story. Men protect our nations children & the love mothers give so freely.
I can speak for most, we are tired of being played for a fool by others.
