No Me Gusto

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Spotted out the window of my bus on September 11th:

I wish we could just deport the bigots instead. Who's with me?


  1. Three cheers for deporting all the bigots!!

  2. siiiiiigh, i hate the 1% of americans that do this shit - i wish we could all just ignore them. easier said then done though.

  3. Basically, E-Verify is a government computer system that compares information from employees' employment eligibility forms to other governmental data on them to prove citizenship & work eligibility. If the information matches up, they're eligible for employment in the States; if not, they're often held for deportation. The problem is that the system is flawed & has been known to negatively affect U.S. citizens - if, for example, you've changed your name or gotten married, or if there's a typo on a government form someplace, you'll show up as a mismatch & aren't allowed to work until DHS figures out your eligibility, which of course means red tape & a lot of confusion. A good idea in theory, but in practice, it's far too flawed to be used reliably.

  4. Sorry to be a stickler, but you can't conjugate gustar like that, it is not a normal verb. It is "no me gusta este senal." The exact translation is more like it is "this sign is not pleasing to me" not "I don't like the sign." Pero estoy de acuedro--(I agree :))
    Anyways, I have been following your blog for a while--and as a fellow Jewish gal from suburban, Northeastern OH* who relocated to the East Coast I really dig your blog. Good luck in your return to OH. Remember it is only 5 hours drive back to DC.
    * Tallmadge to be exact, yes there are Jews there! Though since my sister and I left the population has decreased by about 50%.

  5. I can't handle when people oversimplify issues that barely effect their lives and that profoundly impact the lives of other people. So upsetting.


Leave me some love.
