We don't take care of our own in America. Today's Americans worship a Prosperity Jesus. Real Christianity is dead but the prosperity gospel is thriving politically. We have uninformed citizens who are allowed by our government to be manipulated by fake news. Some people are not mentally capable of telling the difference. That's why we need the Fairness Doctrine.

You know, I'm on Fark and I read post after post written by people like you who seem to align perfectly with my thoughts and ideas but I have a question:

WHERE ARE ALL OF YOU IN MY DAILY LIFE??1

Most of the randos I come into brief conversational contact with are either Trumpers or not-so-covert racists. I see WAY more LIONS NOT LAMBS and TRUMP24 bumper stickers around here than I do Biden or Greenpeace stickers. And I live in one of the bluest states in the union.

We couldn't take care of them even if money and compassion were no object.

(Anecdote =/= data, but...) My wife's gotten a couple of Central American refugee children at the middle school in NY where she works in mental health services.

The school doesn't even know how old they are, nor what country they left or what language they speak (it isn't Spanish, so it's probably an indigenous language), nor their vaccination status (almost certainly none), only that they haven't been in school of any kind for five years, more or less. They're staying with distant relatives here, is what the school has surmised.

My wife and her colleagues would love to help these kids, out of basic human decency, but they've been set up to fail - and to take the fall for farkstick state and federal failures.

Cut down the mightiest tree in the forest with a herring: that's been the state and federal response to local schools. For public consumption the suits at the state education department roll out the usual happy horseshiat about how they've got the money to provide support, and the politics tab hivemind happily gobbles that particular knob.

For the school it's "when we said you were getting the money, we lied. Fark you, and keep your trap shut about this unless you'd like more education aid yanked out from under you."

The school is reasonably sure the kids won't be raped while they're here, like they were south of the border, so there's that.

The immigration/refugee systems are broken.
Canada's system is a complete joke.  Its actually kind of strict if you do it properly but why do it properly and wait when you can make false refugee status claims.
Interesting they come to Canada "broke" yet all seem to have high end possessions and visas which show regular travel back to their home country that they had to flee from.
Boarder agents see it everyday, Canada and America are the worlds door mats.  If you try to fix the system liberal snowflakes will scream ZOMG YOU NAZI!!!!! and conservatives will scream ZOMG THEY'RE DESTROYING OUR WAY OF LIFE CLOSE ALL BOARDERS.
Its a complete shiat show and tough decisions are going to have to be made at some point.

Just imagine a Joel Osteen service - security comes to Joel and says "There's some olive-skinned Jew out there. Says he's from Palestine and wants to get on stage and talk about how we need to welcome refugees, love our neighbors, and how rich people need to give away all their possessions to help the poor. We just went ahead and smashed him over the head with a cinder block and threw him in a dumpster."

I hear those Samaritans or Sumerians or Somalian's do a good thing with that lame god stuff.  Go to Somalia and get some class a Jesus treatment.

Our God packs heat.  Doesn't take shiat from any other God.  Looks down from Heaven and see the U S of A with a 2 point black border all around it. They're all winners with their hemi powered air conditioners and making babies be born.   I'm all up in that shiat too!  Look at this TV.   The size of the Gamma Nebula and I'm thinking larger next time.   I can stream every thing and I have cable, cause I just can't cancel cable.  Also, I'm omnipotent so I don't need this shiat but I gotta have it or someone else will have it.  Jesus!  Throw a sequoia on the fireplace.  My toes are cold.  Yes.  I can make them warm all by myself but either you throw a sequoia on the fire or I start planning a sequel:  "Jesus Returns:  Everyone gets to CP Him".

By 400AD it was institutionalized and gone.  People still try, inside and outside of the institutions, but it's one of the oldest and largest corporations in the world, basically.

It was supposed to be about an internal
between a person and their relationship with infinity.  It got twisted into making it about laws and power over others.

Having said that, I've seen some who have knocked me back hard with what looks like may really have been the message and teachings.  But they aren't usually visible or in positions of power.

If it's sarcasm, well done.

If it's not... we could arrange an "exchange of views" between your guys and ours here in Germany. In can even be in September 2022, right here in Munich, a city which holds a 2-week festival with the purpose of imbibing as much alcohol as humanly possible without a single store windows being broken. And that for 200+ years.

We got ourselves 7 million Turks, and we took in about a million Syrians in 2015. 6.8 million of those Turks work their asses off in all sorts of jobs, some pretty managerial, and they have ensured our supplies of fresh fruit and fresh meat (halal is a great way of assuring freshness) for the foreseeable future. They are good citizens, quite good footballers, and quite willing to integrate (except for the Anatolian grammas, but those generally stay at home).

The Syrians: 100K went home after their first German winter, which says something about German winters being worse than actual war. Of the remainder, 500K already have jobs, and the others are finishing German classes and retraining. The German govt invests about 80K EUR per Syrian tops, and many are uni grduates or even postgraduates, so those 80K are returned in about 3 years in income tax and VAT, which is quite nice for a doctor, RN, or trained chef who would have to be raised and trained for 25-odd years in Germany. Families? Bring 'em in, we need children to fill up all those schools left empty by the German 1.x replacement rate.

1.5 million Syrians passed through Munich in 2015, en route to the rest of Germany, because the Austrian border was the only one open by the time Angie said "come on in". Since we handle 5 million foreigners in & out every year IN 2 WEEKS, the total cost of this "breakdown" and "invasion" was... 2 incidents, 0 deaths, 0 hospitalizations due to violence (we had a number of Syrians falling sick or collapsing from exhaustion)

This was the elite of a country: professionals, managers, entrepreneurs, govt workers, uni students. They came with their Samsung cellphones and brand-name clothing... and little else. Germany took 'em in, invested in them, and started reaping the fruit of that investment right away. Now they won't go back, and our (inevitable) day of demographic reckoning is pushed back a bit. 

Culture shock? Well, yeah. It's to be expected when you get out of the Late Middle Ages and come to the 21st century... except when you try to pay with your phone and discover Germans still do 90% of their transactions in cash, so it goes both ways. But this is Germany, the culture that has set the standards for music, law, philosophy, the exact sciences, and even space science... Ve vill Germanize zem, as ve haf Germanized ze Turks, ze Poles and even ze Spaniards. And they will, in turn, export German culture and Ordnung to their relatives back in the old country. Been to Turkey lately? Doesn't look very Ottoman any more. Poland? Positively civilized. Ze Balkans? Ve ar verking on zat.

Do some people game the system? Yep. They're natives. A couple migration officers built themselves a nice system involving European nationals willing to fake marriages with African migrants, and they earned some millions of EUR before they got caught. A number of Germans have got the hang of the whole unemployment-welfare racket and they live comfortably for 20 years getting grossly fat and playing video games (they used to play cards back in the day)

Tl;dr... If your system is broken, do what the world does: Come to Germany and get it fixed.

We got ourselves 7 million Turks, and we took in about a million Syrians in 2015. 6.8 million of those Turks work their asses off in all sorts of jobs, some pretty managerial, and they have ensured our supplies of fresh fruit and fresh meat (halal is a great way of assuring freshness) for the foreseeable future. They are good citizens, quite good footballers, and quite willing to integrate (except for the Anatolian grammas, but those generally stay at home).

The Syrians: 100K went home after their first German winter, which says something about German winters being worse than actual war. Of the remainder, 500K already have jobs, and the others are finishing German classes and retraining. The German govt invests about 80K EUR per Syrian tops, and many are uni grduates or even postgraduates, so those 80K are returned in about 3 years in income tax and VAT, which is quite nice for a doctor, RN, or trained chef who would have to be raised and trained for 25-odd years in Germany. Families? Bring 'em in, we need children to fill up all those schools left empty by the German 1.x replacement rate.

1.5 million Syrians passed through Munich in 2015, en route to the rest of Germany, because the Austrian border was the only one open by the time Angie said "come on in". Since we handle 5 million foreigners in & out every year IN 2 WEEKS, the total cost of this "breakdown" and "invasion" was... 2 incidents, 0 deaths, 0 hospitalizations due to violence (we had a number of Syrians falling sick or collapsing from exhaustion)

This was the elite of a country: professionals, managers, entrepreneurs, govt workers, uni students. They came with their Samsung cellphones and brand-name clothing... and little else. Germany took 'em in, invested in them, and started reaping the fruit of that investment right away. Now they won't go back, and our (inevitable) day of demographic reckoning is pushed back a bit. 

Culture shock? Well, yeah. It's to be expected when you get out of the Late Middle Ages and come to the 21st century... except when you try to pay with your phone and discover Germans still do 90% of their transactions in cash, so it goes both ways. But this is Germany, the culture that has set the standards for music, law, philosophy, the exact sciences, and even space science... Ve vill Germanize zem, as ve haf Germanized ze Turks, ze Poles and even ze Spaniards. And they will, in turn, export German culture and Ordnung to their relatives back in the old country. Been to Turkey lately? Doesn't look very Ottoman any more. Poland? Positively civilized. Ze Balkans? Ve ar verking on zat.

Do some people game the system? Yep. They're natives. A couple migration officers built themselves a nice system involving European nationals willing to fake marriages with African migrants, and they earned some millions of EUR before they got caught. A number of Germans have got the hang of the whole unemployment-welfare racket and they live comfortably for 20 years getting grossly fat and playing video games (they used to play cards back in the day)

Tl;dr... If your system is broken, do what the world does: Come to Germany and get it fixed.

Enjoy your Sharia state in 50 years.


I can't tell if this is funny or stupid

Any true Christian Nation but have Universal Health Care. I'm certainly not a religious scholar, but it seem to recall Healing The Sick being a good part of that whole Jesus thing

chawco: ColonelCathcart: 8tReAsUrEz: TotallyRealNotFake: The immigration/refugee systems are broken.
Canada's system is a complete joke.  Its actually kind of strict if you do it properly but why do it properly and wait when you can make false refugee status claims.
Interesting they come to Canada "broke" yet all seem to have high end possessions and visas which show regular travel back to their home country that they had to flee from.
Boarder agents see it everyday, Canada and America are the worlds door mats.  If you try to fix the system liberal snowflakes will scream ZOMG YOU NAZI!!!!! and conservatives will scream ZOMG THEY'RE DESTROYING OUR WAY OF LIFE CLOSE ALL BOARDERS.
Its a complete shiat show and tough decisions are going to have to be made at some point.


If it's sarcasm, well done.

If it's not... we could arrange an "exchange of views" between your guys and ours here in Germany.

Maybe its just me but aren't you supposed to apply for resident status before you come and try and cross the border? I'm all for immigration and allowing people to come and work for a better, safer future for themselves and their families. It's one of the reasons I joined the military but I do not agree with illegal immigration nor those who support it or condone it. It has nothing to do with anything other than adherence to the laws and regulations of the country you are trying to enter. If you are willing to break those laws to enter why should you be expected to follow the other ones? If this makes me an asshole, oh well.
I know a lot of immigrants who work their asses off and contribute to society a lot more than some born here but they followed the steps and were granted citizenship the legal way.

docilej: Welcome to America, the world's flop house.


It's been full of horse thieves, whores, mad preachers, and other restless souls since the Jamestown colony.
