OWH: Dirk’s In-State Recruiting Saga

10 August 2018 - 11:17 AM

What happened to in-state recruiting since ‘98?

Very interesting.


The 1997 Huskers — more than any team in the modern era — were homegrown. Tennessee’s roster listed 97 total players. Nebraska’s roster listed 110 in-state players. They came from 57 towns, including 22 map dots smaller than 1,000 people.



A Marine goes to Church

A U.S. Marine enters the Catholic Church confessional booth in Manitowish Waters, WI


He says, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the ever living crap out of a flag burning, cop hating, anti-Trump protester."


The priest says, "My son, I am here to forgive your sins, not to discuss your community service."



Cheap Tomatoes

Yeah, an un-Snopes email:


Nine hundred teachers just got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District.
They are $650,000 over their annual budget. The following comments by an
English teacher help to explain one area that looms large over California's
educational crisis. I hope each person receiving this mail will read it carefully,
all the way to the end. It is sad what is happening to our great country, all because
our politicians are afraid they will miss out on a vote. What a travesty!

This has got to be passed along to as many as possible, or we will all go down the
drain because a few don't care.

This English teacher has phrased it the best I've seen yet and it should make
everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent.

From a California school teacher.....

As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration,
there are some things that you should be aware of: I am in charge of the
English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school
which is designated a Title-1 school, meaning that its students average in the
lower social-economic and income levels.

Most of the schools you are hearing about are South Gate High, Bell Gardens,
Huntington Park, etc., where their students are protesting – these are also
Title-1 schools.

Title-1 schools are on the free-breakfast and free-lunch program. When I say free
breakfast, I'm not talking about a glass of milk and a roll ... But a full
breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make the Marriott proud.
The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in
the trash uneaten. (Our tax dollars at work!)

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately
overweight. About 75% or more have cell phones. The school also provides day care
centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls
(some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having
to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.
(More of our tax dollars at work!)

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department, or risk losing funding for the
upcoming year even though there was little need for anything. My budget was already
substantial, but I ended up buying new computers for the Computer Learning Center,
half of which, one month later, were carved with graffiti by the appreciative
students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America.
(More and more of our tax dollars at work!)

I have had to intervene several times for young substitute teachers whose classes
consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months,
who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them putas (whores) and
throwing things, that the teachers were in tears

Free medical care, free education, free food, free day care, etc., etc., etc.
Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country, but also to
demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our
society, because they happen to like their gardener and/or housekeeper, and they
like to pay less for tomatoes, I say: Spend some time in the real world of illegal
immigration and see the true costs.

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime,
lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases, etc.,
etc., etc. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans, we need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because
we won't have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think
they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that
does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out
of school by age 15, and that refuses to assimilate, plus an American culture that
has become so weak and worried about "political correctness," that we don't have
the will to do anything about it.

If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know
including your Congressman and Senators.

Cheap labor? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage.

Consumers don't want expensive produce.

Government will tell you 'Americans don't want the jobs.'

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce,
and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job
for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax,
yet at the end of the year, if he files an income tax return, he gets an "earned
income credit" of up to $3,200, free.


1 He qualifies for Section-8 housing and subsidized rent;

2 He qualifies for food stamps;

3 He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care;

4 His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school;

6 He requires bilingual teachers and books;

7 He qualifies for relief from high energy bills;

8 If they are, or become aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI;

9 Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare (All of this at taxpayer's
{our} expense);

10 He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowner’s insurance;

11 Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material;

12 He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits;

13 Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their
bills and his;

14 The American taxpayers also pays for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? Yeah right! Wake up people!

These are the questions we should be addressing
to the Presidential candidates for either party. And when they lie to us and don't do
as they say, we should replace them at once!

We must take action or we will all go down the drain because a few don't care.
And if you think this is bad, just wait until a Democrat  becomes President and the
redistribution of wealth becomes the norm in this ex-Democracy.

I was at my bank today; where the line was short. There was just one lady in front of me; an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars.


It was obvious she was very irritated. She asked the teller, "Why it change? Yesterday, I get two hunat dolla fo yen. Today I only get hunat eighty?  Why it change?"


The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, "Fluctuations."


The Asian lady angrily responded: "Fluc you white people, too!"
