Lounging on the steps of a crumbling Soviet-era apartment block on the outskirts of Romania’s most notorious slum, Iordan Rupa is drinking apple brandy and waiting for his mobile phone to ring. Pulling a woollen hat tightly over his ears, he gestures at the filthy streets, filled with packs of stray dogs, mountains of rubble and litter, potholes, and the occasional burnt-out car. ‘Look at this place,’ he says. ‘There is nothing for us here. No jobs, no money. But if God is willing, this telephone will soon bring the chance of a better life.’

Do you ever get the feeling that we are floating in a lifeboat already overloaded, yet swimmers are still trying to get in?

Sounds like Detroit or one of the many other leftist Utopias in the US.

I´ll take the east-Europeans over the flood of Hispanics from Mexico or further south. Immigration is one thing but, we need to cut back overall and, we´ve way too many from south of the border.

The people of the UK are nuts if they allow their government to go along with such immigration policies that requires the UK to accept would be immigrants from anywhere who resemble the people depicted in the article.

#8, please see today´s Sunday Express [UK] article, "Immigrant crime soars with foreign prisoners rising" at:

http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=723791

One of the stats is that 92% of ATM crime in the UK is committed by Romanians.

Checking Wikipedia I found:

Romanian-born residents
7,631 (2001 Census)
58,000 (2009 ONS estimate)


Population of the UK is around 63 million, so the ATM crimes committed by this particular demographic are wildly out of proportion to their percentage of the population.

I lived in Romania for three years ( under Ceaucescu ) and this doesn´t surprise me at all. Anyone from eastern Europe who is middle aged or older spent a large chunk of their lives under communism where there was no incentive to work and the black market thrived. It was all about wheeling and dealing under the radar and being as secretive as possible. All of that adds up to bad news in western societies, especially if the people in question are of the gypsy persuasion. There´s a reason why they have that reputation. At least a lot of Mexicans have a strong work ethic.

On the other hand, that Romanian sinkhole sounds like a natural place for a Democrat political dream team to fly in and just take over...all the leftard heavy lifting has already been done. Remember, it took decades of "work" to drive Detroit into this condition.

I have a dear friend from Romania. His family has temporarily moved to Italy looking for jobs. This friend is 23 y.o., trained as an auto electrician, and cannot find a job. His father has been a trucker for 40 years and could not find work in Romania. In Italy, he is working month to month. It´s hard to exaggerate the poverty in Romania. It´s easy to point out the crime and the dreariness, but behind each statistic, is a human being trying to survive, trying to improve him/herself, and trying to make life a little better for his/her children. Before being too swift to condemn or judge, think about your own ancestors and why they came here and the hardships they had in the "old country." My own great-grandfather arrived from Hanover, leaving behind most of his family and friends, hoping to escape the mundane (at best) downward spiral (at worst) of the life he experienced with his own parents and grandparents in Germany. I am forever grateful that he made this courageous, sacrificial move.

Somebody has to make the donuts.

How many immigrants have no skills and compete for low income jobs, not finding one, only to claim welfare benefits ?

The better thing to do is freeze all immigration until somebody has a viable plan. Voter is not an occupation Zippy.

Some generic drugs have
had eye-popping price spikes
Star-Telegram [Fort Worth, TX], by Jim Fuquay    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 4/20/2014 8:25:35 PM     Post Reply
Pharmacist Larry Cowan can flip through his records and spot the generic drugs that have taken big price jumps in the past year or so. There’s digoxin, a heart medicine that he used to buy for pennies a pill. “Now the price is close to 10 times that,” said Cowan, owner of Glenview Professional Pharmacy in Richland Hills. There’s doxycycline, a decades-old antibiotic that went on the Food and Drug Administration’s shortage list in 2012 and became the poster child for generic price spikes. Cowan said a tablet of doxycycline went from about 6 cents in late 2012 to $3.65

Bon voyage Quantum! We hardly knew ye. The Royal Caribbean´s cruise ship "Quantum of the Seas" will be making a pit stop at the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne in November, but the ultimate home of the Royal Caribbean Cruises´ marquee ship will be in China, the president of the cruise line announced last week. "We´re revving up in China," Royal Caribbean Cruises President and COO Adam Goldstein said in a phone interview Thursday. "In the last five years the market grew more rapidly and customers developed an affinity for Royal Caribbean." While Royal Caribbean´s 4,180-passenger luxury liner will

Trenton — Deeply in debt and struggling to stay open, Saint Michael’s Medical Center of Newark put itself up for sale two years ago and accepted a $65 million offer from Prime Healthcare Services of California. Weeks later, however, Prime took a closer look at Saint Michael’s books and concluded they revealed “burdensome and inflexible” labor contracts, HMO rates “significantly below market price,” and two doctors earning more than $500,000 annually. (Snip) The proceeds from the sale won’t come close to conquering the $233 million mountain of state-backed loans Saint Michael took on when its parent company, Catholic Health East,

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15. "We believe the First Amendment is on our side as evidenced by cases such as NAACP v. Alabama and International Union UAW v. National Right to Work. Many 501(c)(4) organizations protect

   

 



 
State schools isolate non-Muslims

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
