Immigration and Welfare: What’s a Civilized Nation To Do?

Gringa of the Barrio

The 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act

August 22, 1996, President Bill Clinton signed into law a welfare reform plan that not only changed things for the nation’s citizens, but also for the nation’s immigrants. Title IV of the bill contained the details on the provisions that affected “aliens”.

Title IV opens with the explanation that the basic principle of United States immigration law is self-sufficiency. With that in mind, it declares that aliens living in the U.S are to depend on their own capabilities, sponsors and private organizations to provide the resources for the needs of their families rather than depend on public resources. Despite these premises, the Act acknowledges the fact that aliens have been receiving public benefits at increasing rates. The legislation explains that this is due to inadequate eligibility standards that do not prevent aliens from enrollment in the public benefits system. One of…

REMAIN CALM; stock up on Hunter Valley 2014 reds – NOW!

The Wine Wankers

FRIENDS – I’ve recently returned from the Hunter Valley where I drank so much young Semillon, my teeth almost fell out!  But that’s a good thing – because I loves me some Hunter Semillon.  But forget that, because I know you guys are looking for one thing only – and that’s a red hot tip of what you should be buying.  And here it is – 2014 is being touted as the best Hunter Valley vintage since 1965; the year that put the Hunter on the map!  Early signs from Australia’s show circuit have also predicted this.  And because these wines are only hitting the shelves now – it is time to stock up!

A squadron of gulls lifts uneasily into the air and then dissipates against the grey sky. You look meaningly at the gulls. They hover, the flurry of gulls. The gulls lull heavily in the air, squealing their dull squeals.

You incline your head downward and stare at the inrushing waves, each one a hungry-mouthed sheep, coming toward you ravenously. The water is deliquescent twenty feet from the shore. Beyond the shoal the surface seems lacquered, solid, unbreachable, enameled, brackish, thick, as if it were a spreading mass of viscous aquatic jelly. From the shore you cannot fathom, through the spume lid, the pelagic fathoms. The lake’s lid is swarming with wavelets…
