ICE, “Illegial Crisis Engineers”

Having lived in Texas all of my life has obviously brought the illegal alien issues into our lives along with the folks in New Mexico and Arizona. I omitted California as they have been the land of fruit and nuts all of my life. California will always  have a lip lock on the fruity groups but the Hanoi Jane’s and John Kerry’s expanded the dissidents movements from the Pacific coast eastward to the Canadian border and Atlantic coast during and after the war in Viet Nam.

About the same time in the late 1960’s we had an explosion and some of the nuts spread to places like Arkansas, and Illinois. This brought us the Clinton’s, Ayres, Obama’s and  other assorted wing nuts who started their own war with our government. These warped American traitors were encouraged by the sorriest Texan and  President ever born, Lyndon Johnson. LBJ wrecked America and caused more damage to our “Freedoms” than every enemy we ever fought a war with.   

I have a solution to make everyone happy and keep our ICE agents busy and make the people who oppose the ICE program happy.

To help our economy ICE can buy a fleet of luxury busses and some luxury train sleepers to transport every illegal that shows up on the Arizona/New Mexico/Texas border seeking a free new life for the next 90 days. Everyone from Arizona would be sent to Oregon/Washington/Idaho/Montana/North Dakota/Wyoming/Colorado/Utah. ICE would create a formula to dispense the illegals equally in each city and state. Those from New Mexico would be equally dispensed to Oklahoma/Kansas/South Dakota/Wisconsin/Iowa.

The ones who arrive in Texas would be handled a little differently. The State Capital would be moved from Austin to San Antonio. Travis county would be completely fenced in and would be given to Mexico free and clear. Passports would be required. Every  American in the new Mexican “State of Travis” could choose if they wished to have a Mexican or American nationality and passport but not both. With the thousands of Texas politicians and lawyers in Travis County who like nothing in America would be ever so happy as free Mexican citizens.   

Illegals crossing the Rio Grande desiring to live in Travis County would be escorted by ICE to the new fenced in “Travis’ border. All others would be taken by bus and train to the sanctuary state of their desire. Ones who had no preference would be delivered to Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and West Virginia based on population.

Once they all got relocated. Ice would return to their duty stations and the borders would be closed. Any alien desiring to return home and those undesired by the new states who would then pay ICE to send them to jail or home. ICE would be allowed to sell them to California.

I would hire Joe Arpaio to establish prisons along the Rio Grande to inter aliens and make the countries of origin pay to house and feed them or take them home. That would pay for the walls.

Man, it’s fun to see a plan come together.

EDUCATION IN TEXAS-WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?

 

Our illustrious Governor, Rick Perry, has exposed his analysis of the education problems with a bomb shell statement. The reason we will have to lay off 100,000 Texas teachers is each local school district’s fault.

He rejected the charge that the $9,000,000,000.00 cut in state funds over the next two years would lead to the mass layoff of teachers. Quote, “The lieutenant governor, the speaker and their colleagues are not going to lay off one teacher, as best I can tell, Perry said.” “That would be the task of the local school districts figuring out how to do the same with less.”

Texas now provides 37 percent of funding for public schools. A little over 10 years ago the state provided 50 percent of the funding for public education. The difference has been made up with increased property taxes.

Perry suggested that the local school districts should just trim the administrative ranks to make up for the cuts of funds. He added, “Over the past decade, we’ve seen a rather extraordinary amount of non-classroom employees added to the school rolls.”

Perry, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and republican members of the legislature have also blamed this on the federal government involvement. What a bunch of hogwash to place a smokescreen in front of them to hide behind.

According to the latest figures I have obtained, Texas spends an average of $7561.00 per student annually to provide K-12 education. The average for all 50 states and Washington D.C. is nearly $10,000.00 per student. Vermont ranks first with $15,139.00 per student. Utah was fifty first with $5,963.00. When you compare this with our miserable ranking of how Texas students are ranked with the same 51 entities academically, something is rotten in Austin, not Denmark.

As a benchmark locally, the annual money provided per student in the Hemphill Independent School District is less than $5000.00. Compared to as much as $12,000 that some other Texas districts receive, someone should be ashamed. I will provide a look at these variations in a later article that will hopefully excite everyone to contact their representatives in Austin. I doubt our State Representative and State Senator even know this disparity exists? I do not question their honesty, just their concerns for our children.

If the school districts are the only ones responsible for the academic performance and spending state money, as Perry stated, I have some real concerns with education in Texas. This means that the State of Texas has questionable oversight on how the 1265 school districts spend their money or educate the children. If this is true, then Texas needs an agency or appointed citizens group to improve any audit of financial and academic performance elements of each district that is currently performed. When parameters are out of accepted range, they would assess the specific causes of any variable. This would require a plan from the district to correct the situation. Follow up would result in an acceptable condition or the state would take over the school district. For those who are not familiar, this is what a private business would do if they had similar conditions.

I feel certain that the some of the 1265 school districts deserve to be challenged. Our Governor and his band of “Pretenders” have declared that all 1265 school boards are equally guilty of incompetence. Without an intense study they have sentenced every Texas child in grades K-12 equal suffering. Action to approve any across the board 20 plus percent education budget reduction for the next two years is irresponsible. Texas leaders have learned how to utilize the Congressional democrats and Obama tactics to just kick the can down the road for someone else to fix someday.

You may have read this past week that Perry and his “Posse” are about to take over $3 billion from the state “Rainy Day Fund” to ease the pain of the budget cuts. I have not found any details of how this affects the proposed $9 billion in education cuts. Sadly this will have no impact on the state ignoring total fiscal and academic performance, they just do not seem to care.

“Someday” is now, we must demand the republicans who have a super majority to stop pointing the finger and do their job. To say the state does not care if the school districts are good or bad is nothing but cowardice. Defaulting their responsibility is about as stupid as a band of criminals breaking into a prison to rob the inmates. Speaking of prisons wait until you see what Texas spends to educate prisoners. Maybe if we educated them during K-12, they would not be in prison?
