"With that kind of money involved, they can even split the check with whomever helped to get the children removed. None of that 7,500 grand has to actually be used to care for the children, as most all of the needed supplies will come from Medicaid or other sources." (01Centare)
You've hit the nail on the head, it goes on in the West far too much and more than most folks know. North America, Europe-yes, such liberal compassion, such progressive ideals-and every day children suffer, suffer the outrage of rape, sexual and physical slavery and imprisonment, beatings... and we look away, assuming if it's "government care", it's good care, it's okay. When is it ever okay to unjustly take children away from their parents to be raised by the State? I pray for this family to be reunited and helped properly or sent back to their families in Guatemala. The children need their parents.
I pray this family and others of our own citizens will see justice and mercy. Hopefully, the foster family for these children is a good and honest one. They better be, Someone is watching and the time of His wrath is near.
"The wealthy totally control our government. The wealthy can hold power only as long as the masses allow them to, e.g., Saddam Hussein, Moammar Kadafi, et al. When the wealthy become so obssessed that they are willing use their power to disable laws critical to our country's survival, they are treading on shakey ground." (Wilder)
1) Wilder, I don't need remedial reading, you do-of your own words above. Your biases betray you my boy. In those sentences, you did indeed associate and imply (whether intended or not)-wealth association with brutal Dictators or terrorists. Your sentences can be taken word for word out of the Alinsky Manual or the Communist Manifesto. Whatever evils some wealthy do to affect our country-is not the point here.
2) you might be surprised how many liberals or socialists don't agree with illegal immigration
3) apples and oranges regarding this issue are in fact, bedfellows. CPS and other entities (humans, that is) have forced this upon the American people and have created a corrupt system for the simple reason that we, the people have ALLOWED them free rein.
4) your Steve Jobs quote sounds good, but for one thing: he omitted the rest of the corrupt, biased media, thus negating his whole tirade-as if Murdoch is the only wealthy mogul with a media empire in the US, Canada or Europe...oh and he is now a dead man.
Again, read my posts and see the main point-which is the corrupt systems we complicitly allow to exist.
With all due respect of course, I do get your true points and agree with those.

What should we watch, listen to, or read, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, The View, NPR, PBS, The NY Times, LA Time, and so on??? EGG-ZACKLEE!
When you exclude others from your circle of acquaintances, the others take on the qualities you fear most about yourself. If you're worried most about being seen as clever, you point out the dullness of the Other. DITT-TOE!

Don't compare our wealthy to Saddam or Khaddafi or any other Terrorist. That's dishonest and a typical socialist-news bite mishmash. When's the last time the wealthy or Corporations rigged the foster care or child services system? It's the fault of government workers (and us) at all levels and their complicity/looking the other way when evil happens. If anyone here thinks this is a Fox News/Conservative/Tea Party problem, you're plain nuts and plain brainwashed by Socialist news bites or reading the Communist Daily-way too much under the bedcovers-in the dark of night.
Cut the class envy/division and cut to the chase. Our federal/state government CAN fix this problem and refuses. When they need to intervene, they're nowhere to be found. When they don't need to intervene, they're all over us like a dirty shirt.
Gemini, read my first post carefully-I said I agree with that-except for the lack of compassion and understanding from many of these posters. Believe me, I do understand completely the loss of jobs, homes, things, etc, that US citizens have suffered, not to mention, much needed social services and hospital care.
But to say or imply that all illegals are malicious creatures that knowingly come here to wreck our country, is to not comprehend the full meaning of desperation and depravity one faces in any Third World country or brutal regime today. Many come here on refugee status and could relay truths that would slay you, just to imagine what they have seen and experienced. Are all refugees greedy and vicious? No. Neither are all illegals.
My main point was that OUR Governments (globally) do know, comprehend and are complicit in way too much of this. They could fix the problem and refuse to do so. WE, the people should hold them accountable and demand they and their world-wide "partners" FIX THE PROBLEM. That is the only true, just and compassionate thing to do. God help us.
The children are innocents. When is our outrage against evil in America and around the world going to encompass ALL evil, not just the evils that affect us personally?
Look it up, Foster Care in America has plenty of its own evils-child abuse, murder and rape-and CPS looks the other way-particularly in Georgia, California, New York, Philadelphia, Miami, Boston, Washington DC, etc, etc, etc.
I love my country, but hey, enough is enough. We're not blind, deaf and mute. What's your excuse?
