The film Idiocracy had a simple premise: with dumb people multiplying at a much higher rate than intelligent folk, our collective IQ will spiral down the drain. In the film's future, the House of Representatives had become the House of Representin', law degrees were awarded by CostCo, and Carl Jr's corporate slogan? "Fuck you, I'm eating."
Reading today's newspaper, it's not too difficult to imagine this outcome.
"We didn’t get any kind of shut-off notice — nothing," said 22-year-old resident Quaneisha Pittman. Pittman is eight months pregnant with her sixth child. (Thanks to writer and college buddy Chandler Brown for sneaking in that tidbit).
Of all the silly issues brought up in last year's Presidential campaign, I didn't hear a single mention of what I consider to be the most important one: our welfare rolls are expanding daily due to mothers having multiple children when they can't even afford to take care of themselves.
If you live in Atlanta, take a drive down Buford Highway. It's the city's Hispanic capital, and you will quickly lose track if you try and count the pregnant women. Our elementary schools are overflowing - one in the immediate area has EIGHT kindergartens, and has already announced teachers can no longer make copies for the rest of the year. The money is gone. And by the way, that's on top of the previous announcement that no teachers will receive their annual raise because of a budget shortfall. (This is what happens when a majority of the families are here illegally, and pay no income tax to support their child's education).
I used to work in one of these schools, and you'd be shocked to learn how many families have one kid in 5th grade, one in 4th, one in 1st, one in kindergarten, and then another who is so excited to start school next year. By the time the last kid shows up, the parents are well-versed in filling out the "free lunch" form.
When are we going to wake up to this? And what is the solution? And I must ask, why are pro-amnesty people so intent on importing a new lower class when we can't even pay for the one we have now?
