The horror of it all, our illegal aliens are being devastated by our Eeevil Kkkapitalist lifestyle. Besides the issue of playing by the rules to get their working papers, another issue I have is their refusal to assimilate into the culture.

Not to worry, a bit of academic ass-hattery of the Foist Magnitude is always about, to reinforce why it’s a good thing for the felons to retain their former cultural habits.

U.S. Culture Boosts Hispanic Immigrants’ Substance Abuse Risk

Adoption of American culture and lifestyle makes Hispanic immigrants to the United States more likely to use illegal drugs and abuse alcohol, a new study suggests.

That would be the Hispanic immigrants coming from a country the produces the largest marijuana crops in the world, along with skatey-eight million brands of tequila as well as a considerable amount of beer. I’m sure all the above is for export, as everyone knows Mexico has prohibition on the consumption of alcohol and they would never use any of the other available psychotropic drugs.

The study of more than 6,700 adults (including 1,690 Hispanics) in Washington state found that acculturated Hispanics were nearly 13 times more likely to report the use of illegal drugs than Hispanics who adhered to their traditional culture.

Nice statistic, but what was the test question to determine their level of acculturatization? I always thought assimilation was the proper term for adoption of a new country’s culture, but then again I’m not a credentialed member of sociological panderers academia.

Acculturation refers to the adoption of new cultural beliefs and social skills by an immigrant group.

So your hypothesis is that drug and/or alcohol abuse is a cultural belief? What social skill would that be, opening a bottle or rolling a joint? Color me stupid here, but I think those skills are possessed by groups of people throughout the world.

The study found that 7.2 percent of acculturated Hispanics reported using illegal drugs within the previous month, compared to less than one percent of non-acculturated Hispanics and 6.4 percent of whites.

Acculturated Hispanics were nearly twice as likely as non-acculturated Hispanics to report current binge drinking and more than three times more likely to report “bender” drinking — consuming alcohol continuously for days in a row without sobering up.

Any possibility the non-assimilated messicans are lying to you, trying to avoid the police or ICE? I suppose not, as it doesn’t support your agenda. Maybe you should compare benders on college campii in the figures too.

“In general, recent Hispanic immigrants are more family-oriented and have less tolerant views of drugs and alcohol use,” study lead author Scott Akins, an assistant professor at Oregon State University, said in a prepared statement. “Although immigration and assimilation will provide some migrants with benefits such as wealth and job stability, immigration and acculturation can be a difficult process which has negative consequences as well.”

Another La Raza apologist comes a-spewing from our public edumacational system. Just give them what they really really want, finish the Reconquista and they’ll all go back to being clean and sober peasants again in most of our formerly southern states.

MS-13 anyone?

The study was scheduled to be presented Sunday at the American Sociological Association’s annual meeting in New York City.

The epitome of academic asshats, sociologists, having the combined intellect of a tablespoon of yogurt, spent how much taxpayer’s money for this little gem of dishonest, slanted science?

Have a few burritos and shut your pieholes, we aren’t buying what you’re peddling today.

Perhaps if the millions strolling across the non-existent border, stayed on their side of it, they wouldn’t pick up all these bad American habits.

How’s that for a solution? *crickets chirping* Didn’t think so.

Sphincter Snarfers. *spit*

    I was wondering how long it would take for some drooling Moonbats to come up with a reason to not expect Illegals to assimilate.

    Fine…let’s save them from becoming druggies and Alchies….Send their asses back where they came from!

    If they would assimilate into mainstream American culture, there would be less of this problem. Trouble is, they are assimilating into the festering cesspool of a subculture created because of self-segregation into communities that become plagued by gangs and other criminals. The formation of gangs, and other criminal activity, is made easier because they don’t want to go to the police, since they are here illegally.

    JB

    Very fine bitch slappin’ I must say.
    Funny that my family a few gen. ago immigrated and assimilated, and very few got addicted to drugs , more than a few enjoy their beer, myself included, most got addicted to work, hard work, plumbers, steel workers, construction workers. My great-grandmother (God rest her soul) spoke broken English, her b-day cards to me needed a secret decoder ring to read it,
    but G-d damn that woman was a proud AMERICAN. Mom told us when she was growing up, she would help her with her reading and writing, grand ma would use moms school books to study. That LEGAL IMMIGRANT from Yugoslavia knew more about this country then any of my history teachers in highschool.

    ONE DAMN FINE COOK TOO.

    Wow, the whole arguement is really fascinating when you realize that all of those in favor of illegal amnesty, are using the same arguments that proslavery zealots used prior to the civil war.

    We can’t free the slaves (Or deport the mexicans) Our economy is utterly dependent on them!

    Slaves (And mexicans) are doing jobs no (white) americans will do.

    In spite of the inequalities, slaves (Mexicans) are better off here then back in Africa (Mexico)

    The illegal immigrants in America are convinced they can ride a liberal political surge to damn near full citizenship, and are happy to do without certain privelages because they still have it better then they would if they’d stayed home. I wander what the reaction will be should the illegal immigrant population ever become aware of the limitations of thier secondclass citizenship?

    Yep, he’s right about that, if they don’t acculturate away from my tools and materials, quit screwin’ up things so massively I can’t fix them,, it’s my JOB to (within contract parameters) deal some verrry negative consequences, and anymore I don’t mind saying that it’s also my pleasure.

    If they are so poor why are they blowing their cash on drugs and alcohol? As for why they don’t report usage, try they don’t want to bring attention to themselves that way. I suspect that more people would want to throw them out if they knew the mexicans were drugged or wasted and the illegals know this.

    Prohibition is nanny-statism- individuals are responsible for what they consume, not the government.

    Or do you support the government legislating what you can or cannot put in your body? Down that road lies no-smoking, no-drinking, totalitarian nannyism.

    Not to mention no trans-fats, no fast food, mandatory exercise, no caffeine, etc., etc., etc… and to head of the ‘addicts turn to crime’ issues- it’s still a choice they make.

    Guns don’t kill people, people’s choices involving guns kill people. The same logic applies to drugs- it’s the user’s choice which can kill or otherwise be detrimental. If the choice they make is bad, they should be punished as a consequence- they should not be forbidden the right to make free choices.

    This may have more to do with promoting dangerous behaviors rather than forbidding them. Unless the left was practicing a form of social defiance, a tantrum as it were, well know behavor for them. They mock authority unless they have it. Rampant drug use in extremely risky and dangerous, I know this from personal experience. I no longer do these things. Yet from the left all I remember is turn on tune in and drop out, largely from years past. Most selective they are. My guns are no danger, leave no hangover and are not addictive. Yet they would be outlawed, again by nanny state government. I think they government should warm you via unbiased studies as to the effect of different behaviors on your person. Friends may be a more reliable source, or others like youself. As for the kids, a good exmample is the best teacher.

    Caveman, I’m with you on dangerous behaviours- kids need to be well trained in responsibility.

    However, that is the role of the parents. Your guns are safe, because you are educated and responsible. A 15 year old gangbanger’s is not because he is uneducated and irresponsible.

    For both examples, to use guns, or drugs, is a choice- whether legal of illegal, the choice always remains.

    I just object to government forbidding choices. That is not their role.

    (sorry for the addendum posts- at the office)

    There’s always the legal/illegal drug divide, as well- alcohol is also extremely dangerous for the irresponsible, but is still legal and easily available.

    Seagoon, I think I was too vague in trying to make my point. What I was alluding to was this point in the article:

    immigrants are more family-oriented and have less tolerant views of drugs and alcohol use,

    Although immigration and assimilation will provide some migrants with benefits such as wealth and job stability, immigration and acculturation can be a difficult process which has negative consequences as well.”

    I took that to mean that when the immigrants adopt American ideals and lifestyles, that they are more apt to use illegal drugs and such. I was trying to point out the contradiction in the authors argument. That the left side is the one that is responsible for the rampant drug use in this country, and then they hypocritically turn around and blame “acculturation” for increased drug and alcohol use…when, technically, they are to blame for it by their tacit acceptance of it as a “lifestyle”…

    Or do you support the government legislating what you can or cannot put in your body? Down that road lies no-smoking, no-drinking, totalitarian nannyism.

    well, I DO support laws prohibiting drugs like pot and coke and others. The reason we should prohibit drugs is simple, and I use you and and the rest of the Rotties as my test case:

    How many of you come home from work and have one…ONE…beer or drink and then chill out for the rest of the night? Quite a few I’ll betcha, My wife comes home…has one glass of wine with dinner and no more.

    Now, how many of you pot smokers out there come home from work and have one…ONE…hit off of a joint and call it quits for the night? Not many I’ll betcha. No one I know who has ever smoked pot, and that includes me, ever takes one hit and just stops there. Drugs are for altering your reality, I don’t believe they can be used to socially relax like alcohol can.

    Now speaking as a long term recovering alcoholic/druggie, I strongly disapprove of ANY bureaucrat telling me what I can and cannot do with my own body and health, it’s none of their damned business if I want to drink or drug myself to death…unless I harm someone else while doing it….I quit drinking and drugging on my own, just got sick and tired of being sick and tired…simple as that. I didn’t need any damned nanny-state bureaucrat to tell me that I had a problem, it was pretty damned apparent to me and all those around me.

    Jay,

    We’re going to have to disagree on this one, because your sample case is (in my opinion) flawed- one hit from a joint isn’t parity with one beer/drink- it’s parity with one sip.

    How many people come home for a single sip? (and what of ciggies? how many can have just one cig?) We can argue roll strength til we’re blue in the face (how strong is that martini?)- but I smoked for nigh on 15 years, and most of it was one, very light, mild joint in the evening.

    Rarely more (parties etc possibly), and I was pretty normal for my social group. I smoked like that because it kept me off the ciggies… one slim J seemed less destructive than 2 packs of heavy smokes.

    I collect wine, but rarely drink. Find myself getting less tolerant of substances as I age- even cutting back my coffee intake (tho I’ll die before going decaf)

    Now speaking as a long term recovering alcoholic/druggie, I strongly disapprove of ANY bureaucrat telling me what I can and cannot do with my own body and health, it’s none of their damned business if I want to drink or drug myself to death…unless I harm someone else while doing it….I quit drinking and drugging on my own, just got sick and tired of being sick and tired…simple as that. I didn’t need any damned nanny-state bureaucrat to tell me that I had a problem, it was pretty damned apparent to me and all those around me.

    I’m with you here- I must, philosophically speaking, support full decriminalization, because of choice issues. However, as with motorcycle helmets, fatty food, or even cigarettes and booze, I don’t want to pay to support other people’s bad choices.

    I just think if we allow one, we must allow all- and if people die because of it, that’s the price of freedom. If they kill themselves (OD, DUI, shot in course of crime) I won’t bat an eye or shed a tear. If they kill others, well, that sucks, but we still drive cars and own weapons despite some individuals using them to commit crimes.

    Up in my corner of Oregon about half of all businesses have signs in Spanish. On any given weekend the parking lot of my apartment complex is full of drunken Mexicans, most of whom speak no English. Looks to me like unassimilated hispanics do an awful lot of drinking.

    Jackboot,

    You mean DJ’s post? Not a clue, in fact I left a comment on it as well. I didn’t learn it was gone until after I went on-air at 8 pm ET, and it was heating up quite well.

    I have to agree with the no idea what happen to that thread. I left a few posts there. Head for home around 7 PM Eastern time, get home, eat dinner, start to clean up the place since my parents will be here on Friday for a family reunion on Saturday, take care of some other stuff on the net. I finally get here around about 1:15 am and then… WTF? What is wrong with this picture? Hey, a thread’s gone. As for it heating up, if it did, it was after I’d left, as it didn’t seem that heated to me. Of course, unlike the rest of you guys, I haven’t been around long enough to notice something that’d gotten real radioactive here. That’s said, I wonder if the thread would reappear? Your guess is as good as mine.

    My corner of Nova Scotia was almost universally white, and every weekend it was swarming with underage, car-crashing, fight-picking, wife-beating hicks from off the South Mountain.

    They weren’t unassimilated- that WAS the local culture, they’d been living on those hills for 400 years.

    Sure, the Hispanics drink and use drugs, as does everyone else. The steaming heap in this is the statement that their ‘natural culture’ somehow prevents them, and it’s assimilation that makes them do it.

    They’d be pot-smoking, drinking, etc. at home, too- in fact, it’s my understanding that they are. (As most countries will illustrate, no culture/nation has a monopoly on drug use, and no country is totally ‘clean’- though they may have culturally favored substances- and in many instances the genetic predisposition to tolerate said substances)

    Most of what seagoon said makes much sense to me, actually. You’ll find agreement herein. But, again to get back to the main point, IF THEY CAN’T COPE HERE, SEND THEM THE F&#* HOME!

    Why do I get the feeling that those ‘Hispanics’ who participated were legal immigrants? You know the law abiding people who respect the law and followed the existing procedure to immigrate? (Of course fewer of them take drugs or are drunks…. DUH!)

    And then they apply the results to illegal ALIENS (who, by definition, are lawbreakers and have not respect for the law anyway).

    ……and when asked what they do on Halloween the usual answer from the South Mountain boys was….”oh, pump kin”.

    Removing posts? Good grief, what’s happened to the Rott?

    My thoughts exactly when I read this thread just now, followed by a whole string of not-so-nice thoughts. Those of y’all who know me will know what I mean by that!

    I’m trying to find out what happened right now, and I’m hoping it was a technical glitch, because if it wasn’t, then a whole truckload of shit is about to hit the fan.

    I may not have been clear about the editorial policy in the past and, if so, blame me for not typing it out in 36pt Arial, but the ability to delete posts extends ONLY to posts written by the deleter himself. Unless the deleter is me, but I haven’t yet deleted a single one in the five years I’ve been doing this.

    I’m perfectly willing to entertain the notion that, at some point, a post might show up that I don’t want on my site (although I’m at a loss to think of anything bad enough to cross that line), but in that extremely hypothetical case, the only one who gets to delete the offending post is yours truly or somebody else acting on my express orders. Period. End. Stop.

    Again, I’m hoping that this was a software glitch.

    It had damn well BETTER be! :em96:

    Probably.  ‘Twasn’t me, that’s for sure.

    In fact, I had a stinging response to Dave’s rejoinder to me in the thread and went to upload it, which is when I found out about it.

    Probably. ‘Twasn’t me, that’s for sure.

    I suspect Hosting Matters had a SQL server burp yesterday, and they restored the database that didn’t have that thread on it. When I checked the audit logs here I not only couldn’t find the person who would have deleted it, I couldn’t find any evidence that it was ever posted.

    Two other sites that I work on that use Hosting Matters had a similar issue early yesterday afternoon. Both of them lost a couple of posts. Hosting Matters took four hours to get back to them on a support ticket, and by then they said that they didn’t know anything.

    No big deal, shit happens.

    DJ- I did the same last night with the same results.

    Just got off the phone with the Boss and we came to the same conclusion too. CASE CLOSED.

    No, I’m not going for similarity, Jay. I just collect funny animated gifs. Some I will make into avatars, others I just have.

    Making fun of Extra-Krispy-American’s, Dave?

    I wasn’t making fun of anyone. I happen to like the expressions that particular guy in the picture makes.

    I just got back from the bank after going down there to rip a new asshole. The guy in the picture pretty much expresses how I felt coming back…
