Immigration And Assimilation 101 – Using Your Common Sense

“Resistance (to assimilation) is futile” used to really mean something. Well, it does to Star Trek fans anyway, and it should to all Americans and immigrants as well.

Assimilation to a culture and language that together, offer more opportunity than anywhere in the world – in a country to which one chose to move – is just commonsense.

It does not require the abandonment of all that one has come from, but rather, the embracing of all that is here to be had, not the least of which is opportunity. Had immigrants to the US refused to assimilate in the beginning, the US would not be the great land of opportunity that it is. It would be a mess. And now, it is. Some employees resist from the immigration due to the inconvenience in working place. The canada immigration lawyer in toronto will educate the person about the procedure of visa and removes the resistance.

Evidence of this is seen clearly with what seems to be an overwhelming majority of Spanish speaking immigrants, who expect the US to accommodate their refusal to learn even basic English. Thus, they are not able to obtain gainful employment, contribute little if any to the tax base in the communities in which they reside, and are burdening our tax and healthcare systems out of existence. Towns are going bankrupt, hospitals are closing down, because we simply cannot afford to house, feed, provide healthcare for and educate the worlds’ poor, uneducated Spanish speaking population who refuse to assimilate..

Sadly, some corporate giants in this country have been quick to accommodate these immigrants. Wal Mart is abhorrently guilty, as are countless other companies now marketing heavily in Spanish, both in the stores and in the media. Further, in doing so, they are growing in their dependence upon the business of the non-English speaking, poor immigrant, driving out the business of other customers, and are thus, playing their shareholders money against potentially fatal practices.

Talk about “Wal Mart: The High Cost of Low Price.” Producer and director Robert Greenwald has his sequel!

Next, we will be shopping or hearing a list of options on the phone, not only in English and Spanish (often Spanish is the first option), but other languages as well. Will an hour of options in numerous languages finally push us to the breaking point? Will it bring us to the realization of just how foolish we’ve become with regard to immigration? Will we be picking the checkout line at Wal Mart based upon the language spoken by the cashier? Will the sign noting the cashiers’ language be in English, or in the language he or she speaks? Will they hang a separate monitor in Wal Mart for advertisements in each language? Can it be that we really have Spanish Wal Marts in the US, and American ones too? Indeed, we do. Lancaster, PA is a perfect example of this downward spiral trend. Can it be that dialing an operator from a pay-phone in some areas of FL, TX and CA results ONLY in a Spanish speaking customer service rep? Indeed it does.

I’m all for immigration. It’s what made this country what it is. I’m all for children who have the good fortune of being brought up bi-lingual, or even tri-lingual. But, too many immigrant parents are not learning English themselves and are thus, not encouraging English outside the home with their children, while intelligently and simultaneously preserving their mother language and culture inside the home. Worse, America isn’t encouraging them to learn English. We are effectively discouraging them by accommodating their Spanish language on such a grand level – the schools, public signs – every box of every item for sale in the stores. We don’t accommodate immigrant Europeans, Asians, Africans or those from any other culture in that manner who move here. Why then do we so readily accommodate the mostly Hispanic Spanish-speaking immigrants who come here knowing full-well that they won’t have to assimilate? We know why. Votes.

That said, without immigration, this country, one of the greatest on earth, would not exist. But, immigrants must come here legally and with plans to assimilate – adapt, accept and embrace everything they came here for. Our government, businesses, schools, etc., must refuse to accommodate anything less.

Assimilation is just commonsense. In doing so, immigrants will find more reward than they could ever have imagined. Refusing, they will watch with us, Americans – as our country falls into the level of life they so desperately chose to leave – and even more frightening, as we watch our society approaching a rapid boiling point with regard to the hatred that is on the rise between the clashing cultures of “American” and those who chose to come here, but refuse to be – American.

Gsr : Star Witness For The Defense In The Phil Spector Trial

You may have heard about GSR on CSI. It’s got a lot of attention and significance in a real life trial going on now with legendary music producer, Phil Spector. Spector is being charged with capital murder in the death of Hollywood movie B-list actress Lana Clarkson. For the jury of nine men and three women, the choices are limited to murder or suicide.

The 41 year old actress was found slumped in a chair with a gun on the floor closest to her right hand. The prosecution team points out that the actress was left-handed, suggesting that the scene was staged. The actress was murdered by an out-of-control entertainment mogul who was described as having a history of threats against women involving guns. The judge allowed some of the women from Spector’s past to enter testimony into the court record.

Phil Spector, whose name was once so well known that it was used as a verb in one of Bob Dylan’s songs, says the actress killed herself. He’s hired and fired celebrity lawyers like Bob Shapiro, who defended O.J. Simpson. Now Spector is represented by Bruce Cutler and Linda Kenny-Baden. The latter is the spouse of Dr. Henry Baden, a forensics medicine expert scheduled to testify on behalf of the defendant. The former, Bruce Cutler, is known for his avid and successful defenses of deceased mob boss John Gotti.

Dr. Baden’s not the only star forensics expert in the defense card deck. Dr. Henry Lee is also set to testify for the defense, and noted Pennsylvania criminologist Dr. Cyril Wecht.

GSR, or gunshot residue, is at the heart of the case. The jury members will be treated to a crash course in GSR 101 but it is likely they will need a crash course in GSR 102 if they are to be effective. Spector and Clarkson were alone in the home. Clarkson can’t testify because she’s dead, and we have only Spector’s assertion that the actress committed suicide. When examined by the police, Spector was found to have no gunshot residue on his hands nor on the white jacket he wore when Clarkson died. The star panel of experts will be put through their paces in a series of steps designed to validate Spector’s claim that the actress shot herself. Accident attorney Baltimore also concluded the same theory. The claim that the actress shot herself has been a big issue in the court and lots of evidences have been carefully examined.

So what about gunshot residue? The weapon used in the death of Ms. Clarkson was a .38 Special revolver. That is in itself significant. Revolvers are very much different from pistols in design and construction. One of the chief differences is that the revolver has an open ended cylinder where the rounds are placed before firing. When fired, a revolver permits gases to escape in every direction: forward through the barrel, but also backward and sideways in an explosive and spherical cloud which can have a diameter of two to three feet depending on the strength of the gunpowder used.

A pistol or semi-automatic handgun, has a closed design and very few gases go backwards. Most gases go out the front with the bullet or out of ejector when the shell casing is automatically extracted. Since there is no question that the gun containing the single bullet which killed Lana Clarkson was a revolver, the GSR becomes a matter of vital importance to the prosecution and defense teams.

The defense offers the simple explanation that Spector had time to wash his hands and wipe down the weapon before the police came. The hosts of the Court TV show made a point when they quoted a legendary defense attorney about court trials:

“If the facts are in your favor, you pound the prosecution with the facts. If the facts are against you, you pound the police and scientists providing the facts. If there are no facts, you pound the table,” goes the saying.

Or something to that effect.

Bruce Cutler has done a lot of table pounding and a lot of pounding the prosecution. His flamboyant and bold sorties against the prosecution have hammered a phrase into the minds of the court’s spectators. Cutler and other attorneys have perhaps coached Spector himself in a statement issued prior to the trial about how the police descended like a company of storm troopers with “murder on their minds.” That’s the phrase Cutler likes to hurl through the courtroom like a bolt of thunder. With murder on their minds.

The court tapestry of Lana Clarkson’s life and death is a simple matter of forest and trees. Lana Clarkson died with the barrel of a gun in her mouth. It remains to be seen if the jurors will be swayed by the agile panegyrics of Bruce Cutler and the fact magnifying techniques of Linda Kenny-Baden.
