What do an inmate and a Homeless veteran have in common?
What do an illegal immigrant and a homeless veteran have in common?
Here is your answer. Not a darn thing!
Inmates get 3 meals a day.
Illegal immigrants get Federal or state aid.
Inmates get time in the outdoors….oh shoot so does the homeless veteran but not by choice most of the time.
Illegal immigrants get to roam free…….dang it so do homeless veterans
Inmates get a roof over their head supplied by the state or federal government
Illegal immigrants get a roof over their head also supplied by the same people.
Homeless veterans might get a tree that the state or federal government planted to get out of the weather.
Why do we give better care to the inmates and illegal immigrants then we do to men and women who served our country?
Yes there are a few veterans if you want to call them that got dishonorably discharged and are homeless and I think they deserve that. But there are many out there who are homeless because they feel like they cannot trust the federal government, or they are so lost and don’t know which way is up and which is down from PTSD or other issues that have happened in their life.
I think we should make inmates earn everything they have. They want a bed, work and buy one. Want sheets work and buy them. Want rec time work and buy it. Want food work and buy it. They can do a ton of things to help the area out where they are being kept. Let’s see paint over the graffiti, mow grass, pick up trash, clean liens for state run places for the elderly, children etc. , grow food for themselves and also to sell to recover costs, pick fruit and vegetables on a farmers land so he does not have to deal with illegal immigrants (kills to two with one stone) . I can keep going on and on but I think you get the point.
I know what you are thinking what about the dangerous ones…..simple build a place (built by inmates) in the outer most part of Alaska….that way if they run, well most likely they will freeze to death before they make it anywhere.
Now for the illegal immigrants, well let’s see how about we build a 100 ft. wall 50ft above ground and 50ft below with land mines and such around it (guess what you know it, again built by the inmates) and ship all of the ones we can find back to their home countries. As for the ones crossing over on boats, shoot and sink the boat. I know heartless right; well I think people will stop trying after a few boats go down.
I am part Native American and part European. Both sides of my heritage came here legally, we didn’t sneak under the cover of darkness, we went to a little island and signed in, the other half walked many thousands of miles thousands of years ago over rough terrain.
So don’t even try saying that people came here illegal. I know the Europeans took a lot and were not fair to the Native Americans, but that was many years ago when people really didn’t know better for lack of better terms.
A lot of drugs and other illegal activity is not done by a legal American, a lot of drugs and such are brought here by them as well. How about they go back and take their country back from whoever is controlling it. I am sick and tired of pressing one for English. We never had that before, you don’t see people having to press 2 for French, 3 for German, 4 for Russian, 5 for Italian etc. no you don’t so why should I have to push 1 in my own country.
Make them a deal, if they are clean (no criminal background or gang affiliate) and can speak or learn English real quick they do 10 good clean years in the military and they can become a US citizen, they mess up one small bit and back to their home country.
YET AGAIN I STAND ON MY SOAP BOX and REFUSE TO STEP DOWN!
