    What is happening to accountability? Before long, only we the little people will have to answer to the “letter of the Law” while they all flaunt their own contempt for even the Spirit of the Law. So much for Integrity, and Congruence. A nation run mostly by Ethically Challenged and sometimes even Sociopaths.

    It honestly hurts how ignorant Kelly is, it’s great how he assumes how the majority of a country lives when it’s clear he has no idea. Yes my mom had an education only up to the 3rd grade because she was the oldest of 11 and started working and raising her siblings at a young age. My dad being the 8th out of 15 managed to go to school and even get a degree, but after he finished school he decided that it would benefit the future of his family to live here instead. He couldn’t use his degree here so he had to start from the bottom, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t educated. He’s worked in a variety of labor intensive fields even though he had no prior experience in them and he still managed to thrive in each of them. He was able to gain residency and then apply for citizenship which he had to study for and take the test like everyone else that applies for citizenship. They act like people aren’t trying to be a part of this country, he’s very proud to say he’s american, and heck until recently because of how conservative he was raised he’d always vote Republican. Take that how you will but that should show you that the party definitely took a very wrong turn somewhere and drove off a cliff, not like the Democrats have done any better though.

    History repeats itself…
    The Mexican repatriation was a mass deportation of 2000,000 Mexicans and Mexican-Americans from the United States between 1929 and 1936. sixty percent of those deported were U.S. citizens.
    My great grandfather was one of those American citizens sent to Mexico. And this was all based on the color of their skin.
