OMG! The Left Angeles Times Shoots And Scores
I'm wondering if everyone over at the LA Times is feeling alright. They have written one of the most important stories that I have ever read in that fishwrap. In fact John & Ken just read the whole article in its entirety during their first three segments of the show complete with piano music in the background. Here is the article in question. It's titled..."6 + 4 = 1 Tenuous Existence"
I want to go through this article piece by piece because this is very important for our stupid politicians to start understanding.
It starts out typical...
With two teenage daughters at home and triplets still in diapers, Angela Magdaleno's family overflowed from a one-bedroom apartment in South Los Angeles that they strained to afford.We call these clown houses. Let's continue
Both Magdaleno and Anzaldo are illegal immigrants, settled for years in an immigrant enclave. Magdaleno has the same number of children as her parents, who were peasant farmers in Mexico. Like her parents, she is living in poverty and struggling to provide for her family.My advice: birth control...try it, it works. Continuing
Neither Magdaleno nor her husband speaks English, though she has been in the United States 22 years and he 28. Even her teenage daughters speak mostly Spanish; their English vocabulary is limited.Yet all of Magdaleno's 10 children are U.S. citizens. The triplets receive subsidized school lunches. All the youngsters have had their healthcare bills covered by Medi-Cal, the state and federal healthcare program for the poor22 years in the US and they still can't speak the language and the daughters barely speak it also. Ten children all on the welfare rolls. Let's continue
She grew up in Los Positos, in the central Mexican state of Jalisco, the eldest of 10. For girls, life consisted of hard work, little schooling, no birth control and thus, said Alejandra, raising "all the children God gives you."I love that last line "all the children God gives you". Actually the science behind having a baby is real simple...having sex when your wife is in the fertile time of her cycle. It has nothing to do with God actually. Again my advice...birth control.
Magdaleno's existence contrasts sharply with that of her younger siblings, who followed her to Los Angeles but then left. They have settled in Lexington, Ky., had no more than two children each and built better lives than they had known before. Four bought houses. Their children speak English fluently.Imagine that, the ones who moved to Kentucky all speak English and had only kids they could afford. They had to assimilate because no one speaks spanish back in Kentucky. Here we have spanish television, radio, newpapers, etc. Let's continue
Magdaleno's sisters struggle in vain to understand her. "She still thinks like people in Mexico — that's what I think," said her 38-year-old sister, Justina. "You have to think first of your living children instead of thinking of having more
Her sister Alejandra was the first to leave. In Los Angeles, she and her husband were barely able to make ends meet. As in Mexico, "there was little work and it's poorly paid," she said.Did you hear that Sen McCain, Sen Kennedy, President Bush, and Arnold S? "California is broken!" That's coming from illegal immigrants!
Eight years ago, she and her family moved to Kentucky, where a friend said there was more work and were fewer Mexican immigrants bidding down the wages for unskilled jobs.Today, the Magdalenos in Lexington earn more than they did in Los Angeles, in a city where the cost of living is lower. Kentucky is now their promised land, and they talk about California the way they used to talk about Mexico. "What we weren't able to do in many years in California," Alejandra said, "we've done quickly here.
"We're in a state where there's nothing but Americans. The police control the streets. It's clean, no gangs. California now resembles Mexico — everyone thinks like in Mexico. California's broken."
Last year, however, she sent her daughter, Kelly, 17, to Kentucky for several months. Though American born and raised, Kelly hadn't been outside South Los Angeles.I know that's pretty weird to not have kids when your fourteen huh? Imagine that, reading books with only letters. These are strange concepts I know. Let's continue
In Lexington, school was hard because few people spoke Spanish, and the city "barely had one Spanish radio station," Kelly said.
Her cousins, she said in English, "use more educational words than here. My cousin is 7 years old, and he has a better reading level than me. He don't see picture books or drawings or anything like that. He just likes books with pure letters."
Girls from Mexican-immigrant families in Kentucky, she saw, were in their mid-20s and still didn't have children.
"I said, 'Damn, that's weird,' " Kelly said. "The girls right here in Los Angeles are like in Mexico. There are girls that are 14, they got kids."
The family in Kentucky "is more in the United States than" her mother, Kelly concluded. "They want a better education for the kids. With less kids there's better possibility of you having something."
Magdaleno, meanwhile, was raising six other children and using a variety of birth control methods — the latest being the contraceptive patch.I'm sure that premie care for the babies cost the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, but hey she didn't do this on purpose.
She said she was stunned when doctors told her that she was carrying quadruplets.
"She didn't do this on purpose," said Dr. Kathryn Shaw, who delivered the couple's triplets and their quadruplets. "She was not at all elated, and not excited about the fact that they were quadruplets."
All are healthy, Shaw said, but weighed between 3 and 4 pounds at birth. They remained at White Memorial Medical Center in East Los Angeles long enough to gain weight, then came home this week
In conclusion, I just want to thank the Times for using the own words of illegal aliens that "California is broken and is like Mexico now". Truer words have never been spoken. I know it must have killed them to write this story.
