Hey, Amnesty loving, gun grabbing Leftists, either change the Constitution or SHUT UP! Enough of your lies!
Headline: . School: Americans Don’t Have Right to Bear Arms
[snip]The father of a Connecticut child is furious after discovering that his son’s school is teaching students that Americans don’t have a Second Amendment right to bear arms.SAY WHAT???!!!
“I am appalled,” said Steven Boibeaux, of Bristol. “It sounds to me like they are trying to indoctrinate our kids.”
According to the document, the Second Amendment “only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard.”
On Monday his social studies teacher gave students a worksheet titled, ‘The Second Amendment Today.’
“The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” the worksheet states. “The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional.
The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.
“This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states,” the worksheet reads. “So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.”
District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), was a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home and within federal enclaves. The decision did not address the question of whether the Second Amendment extends beyond federal enclaves to the states, which was addressed later by McDonald v. Chicago (2010). It was the first Supreme Court case in United States history to decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.
Hey, Amnesty loving lefties...foreign workers only benefit your hated 1%! Stop being useful idiots.
[snip] An increase in the number of workers leads to lower wages. Illegal immigration reduces the wage of native workers by an estimated $99 to $118 billion a year, and generates a gain for businesses and other users of immigrants of $107 to $128 billion.
Immigration has its largest negative impact on the wage of native workers who lack a high school diploma.........immigrants who entered the country from 1990 to 2010 reduced the average annual earnings of American workers by $1,396 in the short run. Because immigration (legal and illegal) increased the supply of workers unevenly, the impact varies across skill groups, with high school dropouts being the most negatively affected group.
The same type of education/age comparison used to measure the wage impact shows that a 10 percent increase in the size of a skill group reduced the fraction of native-born blacks in that group holding a job by 5.1 percentage points. http://cis.org/immigration-and-the-american-worker-review-academic-literature
Just 26% Support Immigration Plan Without Tougher Border Control http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/immigration/april_2013/just_26_support_immigration_plan_without_tougher_border_control
Even among supporters of "comprehensive" reform, 64 percent want the border to be secured first before any pathway to citizenship for those here illegally can begin.
None of these dynamics has changed since the immigration reform effort attempted when George W. Bush was in the White House
