||No kidding! (Hint of sarcasm since this is Philadelphia.)
On June 30th, the esteemed Mayor Street announced the Commission on African and Immigrant Affairs. This action, most likely a pandering to the Live 8 crowd, is typical waste of tax dollars by Philly's corrupt administration.
The press release stated the primary purpose of the commission is to, "encourage the development and implementation of policies and practices intended to improve conditions affecting the cultural, social, economic, political, educational, health and general well-being of the African and Caribbean immigrants, refugees, and asylees residing in Philadelphia."
No other immigrants need such assistance? Just because there are Polish, Russian, Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese and others coming to this city daily, they should be left to struggle and suffer on their own. The entitlement community can only be so large. This way we get'em as soon as they come off the boat so they can expect entitlements their whole life. This is the garbage typical of this corrupt administration.
The MayorÂs creation of this Commission "reaffirmed to the world PhiladelphiaÂs historic commitment to tolerance, freedom and democracy." If you say so John. This truly affirms Philadelphia's intolerance of and screwing it to other races and ethnicities and your pandering to the black community in this city.
