“Any team that signs a huge ten year deal for a 31 year old player had better hope he's a user of performance enhancing drugs, otherwise half way through the contract the player will be a bust.

Even Griffey, the best natural hitter of his era, started to falter in his mid-30's.”

“How much resentment is there toward illegal immigrants there? Based on stories coming from France the last few years there are probably hard feelings when some middle-eastern languages are spoken.”

“Having been in France several times I can safely say, The French don't like anybody, even each other. People in Northern France look down on people from Southern France and people in Paris look down on everybody.”

“Maybe because yours is a specific case, and the illegal immigration problem is nationwide. There are a lot more situations for these "news worthy" events to then take place.”

“Whether right or wrong, they're afraid their communities are being overrun by illegal immigrants who don't bend to the dominant culture, turning them into third-world neighborhoods almost overnight.”

EuroRant1 on Dec 4, 2013 at 18:28:43

“Yes, this happened in my own neighbourhood back in the early 80's. We were the only Mexican family in a very affluent neighbourhood and little by little other "Mexicans" started moving in and the housing market fell down until it looked as you called it "into third-world neighbourhood almost overnight" but something strange began to happen...
over the years these third-worlders began to set down roots, they became educated, got better jobs, their houses were refurbished, the old neighbourhood flourished again.
It has become one of the lowest crime areas in southern California... given opportunities they will arise and do what we all want - have the same advantages we all share and pass that on to their children.
For every action there is a reaction... if your answer is anger and stamping them out, holding them back or giving others disadvantages because they're different or another race or colour then you're only going to get what you ask for - but if you give them the same opportunities as you have or want - the reaction will be great.

If I sound like an idealist, I'm not, I'm a realist that has travelled and lived all over the world, speak several languages and have lived abroad for over 22 years. The rules are the same everywhere... so it's "overrun" but who says they're illegal? What I suspect they fear is change... too bad, they could really enjoy this party instead of standing outside complaining.”

“Maybe more people aren't upset because those parents who care mostly notice that their kids are being educated well enough. It's interesting how those two things correlate...”

“My question is how can you come up with educated well enough when you see the constant slide in test scores? This isn't a new thing we have been on the downhill for years. And since when did well enough become acceptable, I thought we always wanted to be on the cutting edge!”

“Asian countries envy aspects of our education system, such as creative problem solving. In rote situations they excel, but application not so much. Also, Math is a cultural value in Asian countries, in a way that it is not in America. You can't compare the two and think it's just about how we teach in schools.”

“Teachers can't raise kids. If a kid comes into school hungry, angry, traumatized, or otherwise unwilling to lift a pencil then there's little that can realistically be done when a teacher has to spend their time addressing those who want to learn. Blaming this on unions identifies you as a zealot, programmed by your masters to participate in the destruction of the American fabric.

If you want test scores to increase then stop mandating attendance. Let the kids who aren't motivated stop going to school. It's what most of the world does.”

“What is a "better" job? Many jobs that require skills, the require competent people who can write a sentence, can't get anyone qualified to fill them. Tool and die makers are PAYING people to get trained, advertising and begging people to come and work for them.
