Unbelievable, that was a great post. Congratulations on medical school. I agree with you that in a country with free access to education, it is unconscionable that so many people manage to remain illiterate and ignorant.
Nothing is free, especially education. Just because you're not paying for it doesn't mean the next guy qualifies for grants, subsidies and God only knows what other handouts are available to the "less fortunate." Come to my home and I'll show you how "free" education is from what I pay in school and income taxes.

I believe you're the ignorant one here.

The death of 3,000 (boo hoo?) people in this country is the cause of OUR economy today, imagine what 200,000 would do. If there are individuals who talk bad about this country, well they have the right to do so. Freedom of speech belongs to us as much as it belongs to you. I would suggest you do some heavy reading and educate yourself. A holy book might do you some good as well.
Excellent analysis against some lumpen-Yankee sh*te spouted in a trailer park.

I pay school taxes too, doofus. I pay them so every kid in this country can go to school. A lot of my hard earned money is wasted on lazy, insolent native -born American brats who think school is a big joke. I'm tired of their whining parents who blame everyone but themselves and their kids for their failure. In many countries, getting an education is not an entitlement. I believe the claim to ignorance is all yours.

The taxpayers DID pay for your education until you were 18. Get a job. Go to school part time. Take out a loan. At least you started with a roof over your head.

I hear a lot of jealousy and anger from in these post. Immigrants are not ruining the city our government has already done a fine job of that. Bosnians came in and actually cleaned Utica up. If you are envious of their lifestyle of families bonding together in order to prosper and gain economic stability then DO IT! No on said you can't learn from their values and get ahead in life as well. We are taught since kindergarten to be individualized; to succeed on your own; we are taught that if we fail its our own fault....this is untrue. A separated society is a doomed one. When my ancestors came over from Lebanon they stuck together and so did italians and the Irish and so on. Family meant something, our survival mattered as a whole not individually. That's what I see when I see Bosnian families doing well in Utica. They are intelligent and they have experienced far more tragedy than we will ever know. So be aware and conscious don't believe everything you see on the news. And really this is 2012 shouldn't we be over stereotyping by now? We have all heard these hateful words over and over and over... ENOUGH!

Are you talking to me ? I've been self sufficent since 18, never have gotten food stamps, section 8, heap or anything. I do work full time and go to school part time and I know a lot of people that the goverment pays for most of the schooling. I've seen their bills. I feel the governement should help people who aren't welfare lifers.
In many other countries uni is mostly paid for by the government. America needs to catch up.

I apologize if what I said offended you. I didn't make myself clear. I'm well aware that if you live outside a reservation you have to pay taxes. My point was that if you're a Native American then you have the option to live on a reservation and not pay taxes,(to what I'm not at all opposed to), but that besides that everyone else has to pay taxes.

As if you could come CLOSE to understanding what it took to drive these people to leave everything they were familiar with. God forbid you should ever have to face a war on your own turf. You talk big, and that's all. You really need a good smack in the head.
