Public Opinion Poll On Illegal Immigration

#1 Post by Pete44ru » Thu Feb 07, 2019 6:02 pm

.

A poll taken by the California Governor's office asked the people who live in California if they thought illegal immigration is a serious problem:


29% of respondents answered: "Yes, it is a serious problem."

71% of respondents answered: "No es una problema seriosa."

True story.

:wink:
Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

Si, es verdad. No es una problema.

My Mother has to demand a manager at her local Wal Mart to get the pin pad turned to English. The cashiers just say "no hablo Ingles" to her. This is in Liberal, Kansas. Last time I was there visiting, I just asked why can't you speak english, do you have eggs for brains. I spoke it in Spanish. The cashier switched to English immediately. I still went to the manager on duty and complained about the cashier deliberately telling my Mother that she didn't speak English.

Lack of appreciation for this wonderful country. That entitlement attitude is one of the things that burns me the most.

I've run into that a couple times.....I've been known to just leave my purchases sitting on the checkout counter, go back and pick up the same stuff and go to another checkout lane. One can also just stand there and wait for a manager to show up. I always flash back to the reaction that surley bartender got on Lonesome Dove :lol: :lol: It's a heartwarming fantasy, ain't it? :lol:

Anytime they are speaking spanish I reply in German and if the checkout person is wearing a hijab I make sure to buy bacon and the manager always shows up.

Or, alcohol...I'm waiting with bated breath for someone to ask me to scan and bag my own beer. :lol: :lol:
