53% of Los Angeles Can't Read! 

Half the county can't read this
53% of working age not literate enough to use bus schedule, complete job application.

*Continued immigration and a stubborn high school dropout rate have stymied efforts to improve literacy in Los Angeles County. Only one in every 10 county workers deemed functionally illiterate is enrolled in literacy classes and half of them drop out within three weeks. Despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent in public schoolsover the past decade to boost literacy rates, functional illiteracy levels have remained flat because of a steady influx of non-English-speaking immigrants and a 30 percent high school drop-out rate.*

(NOTE: When my Great Grandfathers/Mothers immigrated to the U.S. at the turn of the Century they taught themselves English. It was a matter of survival. Los Angeles is disgusting. If you are going to immigrate you must take resonsibility for yourself and learn the language of that Country. If I decided to move to another Country I would learn their language and I wouldn't expect that Country to pick-up the tab along the way. Millions of dollars more will not solve the problem. People must start taking responsiblity for themselves! SZ)

Just how many people are we talking about? Below are the current numbers for Los Angeles population...

Latest Population Estimate (Jan. 1, 2004)

Los Angeles County: 10,103,000 (correct me of I'm wrong but 53% of that number is something like 5,354,590)

White House Israeli Spy Ring Cover-Up Denial 

FBI investigates suspected Pentagon security breaches
An FBI investigation into suspected security breaches involving Pentagon officials and Israel is unlikely to result in prosecution of senior figures following pressure from the White House, according to people familiar with the case.

Keep in mind GREG PALAST, in his book The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, years ago documented from the FBI,"Secret. Case ID - 199-Eye WF 213 589" in his book. G.W. Bush stopped the FBI from investigating Saudi Royals (the money trail) here in the US. Either way we must keep asking these questions. This case isn't near closed. My motto: I want to see some fucking proof! I ain't seen it yet. In addition, lot's of questions must be answered about the Israeli spy ring that's been operating for years in the US.

Graham book: Inquiry into 9/11, Saudi ties blocked
WASHINGTON - Two of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers had a support network in the United States that included agents of the Saudi government, and the Bush administration and FBI blocked a congressional investigation into that relationship, Sen. Bob Graham wrote in a book to be released Tuesday.

Flashback: IMPROVING INTELLIGENCE December 11, 2002
GWEN IFILL: Are you suggesting that you are convinced that there was a state sponsor behind 9/11?
SEN. BOB GRAHAM: I think there is very compelling evidence that at least some of the terrorists were assisted not just in financing -- although that was part of it -- by a sovereign foreign government and that we have been derelict in our duty to track that down, make the further case, or find the evidence that would indicate that that is not true and we can look for other reasons why the terrorists were able to function so effectively in the United States.
