We built this society with our immaturity.  For several decades Americans have been on anti-establishment craze.  Everything government say has to be wrong and it is our job to ridicule them as much as we can.

Okay, thousand dollar hammers will make anyone gaffe.  However, is wasteful spending all they  do in DC.  Even more important is what is our contribution.  I do not see how loud laughter and ridicule is the answer.

Today, on my mind is why I continue to write.  I know things are about to get worse.  The average immature drooling critic will  not even see it coming.  However, there are many out who are looking for answers as far surviving this storm is concerned.

I will tell you that we are not going to solve these problems.   The quote, “so let it be written. so let it be done”, comes to mind.  Prophecy has been recorded and what is coming next is the worst humanity has ever seen.

If you are good person, who wants to stay clear of the fray then you want to employ some simple tactics.  First, is to know your inner peace.  Second, is to protect your income.  Third, you have to maintain your interpersonal relationships. Fourth, you will have to learn how to protect yourself from a government that is about to start attacking you.  We will become the threat and any critic of government will have to be silenced.

That is right, I under Obama’s government, government will become a repressive government where “freedom of speech” and “freedom or religion” will become a danger. Now, I don’t want to sound like a crazy lunatic.  However, we are at the breaking point of the economy.  Investors, people who buy and starts businesses, have no confidence in Obama’s future tax policy.  I do not blame them.  Absolute collapse of the American economy is coming.  Substantial amount of major corporations have already folded.

Everyone is sitting around wondering why the 700 billion economic bailout is not working.  I point my finger at the cynics, who do  nothing but criticize.  Business people are getting the impression that they have go it alone because of the public’s out cry.

Bush was right to brace the economy by funding banks and critical businesses in critical industries. The confidence in conducting business would of resulted in continued sales.  However, business people saw the masses with pitch forks and torches coming at them and correctly chose to play it safe.  Then the domino effect started. Business after business failed.  More are going to fail.

Obama is wrong in his perception of the solution.  People do not trust him.  Why invest if you cannot count on the return on your investment.  Mr. Obama’s  social policy dreams are to big and working people of America cannot afford them.

If I was going to give Obama advice, I would tell  him to give clear signals on spending and taxation.  Oh! Wait! He has already done that.  He’s 800 billion economic stimulus plan is nothing but public works projects that are going to spend money but generate no income, i.e. taxes.

Furthermore, these public works projects are going to balloon the federal deficit.  Lets do some math.  140 billion where spent on the first stimulus check of 2008.  Bush and congress appropriated 700 billion more.  Obama is now asking for 800billion, but warns it could be as much as 1.3 trillion. Ok so 140+700+800=1,640 billion or 1.6 trillion dollars added to the national debt. 

Obama is not even in office yet.  His major projects like universal healthcare have not even been developed. Universal college education and his civilian defense force have not been developed either.

Therefore, even before Obama takes office the nation is already in the whole for close to two trillion dollars.  Yes many of us are laughing.  This is not productive.  The liberal answer to lower the national debt will be to raise taxes.  More people will laugh and ridicule.

With our ridicule we have destroyed much.  We have killed the family, friendships, societies, cities, states, and our country.  All we have done is destroy the motivation for people to be serious spouses, parents, workers, children, and public leaders.

Again things will get worse.  The amount of cynicism and ridicule won’t stop.  The answer to dealing with all this madness is not to try to fix the problem. It is to fortify your life.  We will always need to eat, have shelter, have clothe, friends, family, and be free of unlawful persecution.  You are not without smarts.  You know how to deal with a culture of immature aggressive and no functioning systems.  The only functioning system will be the national government and its agents will under orders to doe everything to muscle society back in to shape.

The best thing about this recession is that it's causing a lot of illegals to head back to Mexico.

When are you leaving, Jesus Lopez?

Don't get me wrong, watertown, I don't mean to be cruel, really I don't.  I have more sympathy for illegals than I let on, mainly because my Husband is just months away from completing the LEGAL immigration process.  It's cost us over ten thousand dollars and taken almost six years.  The amount of paperwork is unreal, the legal maze is almost impossible to navigate, and the fees to lawyers and Homeland Security are steep, so steep that we couldn't have paid them without help from family.

I can't imagine the hardship this puts on those of limited means who wish to immigrate here legally, especially if English isn't their native language. (Hubby is from the UK.) Heh, I shoulda had him land in Tiajuana instead of DC and walk across the desert.  It would have been more expedient.  And far cheaper.

By the same token, Jesus here (and that is his real name, I know 'cus I've been following his blog for years) complains about this country more than anyone I've ever seen.  If he's that dissatisfied, he can go the fark home for all I care.

 

 

Well I think that it should be easier and less costly to become a cit here in the country... I would support mesures that will lighten such things.... to a point.

 

I will still stand by my thinging that illegals should GTFO and stay out. there are ways to become a cit. Then again it does cost alot which I understand.... that still does not excuse people breaking the laws here. We have em in place for a reason.

I agree, and advocate a three-fold solution to our illegal immigration problem:

1) Lock up the borders and shoot to kill anyone trying to enter illegally.

2) Do nothing about the illegals already here, other than deporting those who come to law enforcement's attention.  No amnesty and no random roundups, either.  As this generation dies off and is replaced by their citizen children, the problem resolves itself.

3) Make it free and simple for law abiding citizens of other nations to immigrate here legally, removing the impetus for illegal entry.  I wouldnt mind my tax dollars going for this because our own population is rapidly aging, our birthrate is down, and someones gonna have to take care of us old farts! 

 

well okay I will agree with free.... but I want strings on it.... like they learn the stuff that they are to learn about this country .... maybe a bit more in depth on the test too... just a tad tougher... after all if this is going to be free we should make sure these people can speak english... not burn the american flag, and also know who and why and how they are gonna get these rights that they are getting by being a cit of this country.

 

Did you know that most people in elected office know LESS about the history of the US then most of us do? in fact most of the american public have lost its way and the meaning behind alot of stuff that so many gernerations ago fought for and died so we can live like we do now.

 

See alot of people think im racist when I say I dont like illegals... there is a reason i dont care to much for them, but my dislike for them is not based on race.

 

O and one more thing...no free hand outs. You want to be part of this country damn it... work like the rest of us.

You may not know this, watertown, but a LEGAL immigrant DOES have to read and write english fluently, and pass a face to face test (oral) on American history.

Also, the potential immigrant must have a financial sponsor in the US, that sponsor has to make at least 30k per year and sign an affidavit of support.  And even legal permanent residents are not eligible for any government aid or assistance until they become full citizens, a process that takes years to accomplish.

 

see going the legal way is by all means the way to go. And I will welcome them . I think that if you curb the cost of it I will agree would be better. But all the other rules I think should stay in place.

 

I knew that they had to pass the tests and what not. I did not know that they needed a sponser. Maybe we could cut that out too....

 

let me ask you this while we are kinda on subject . Do you think that English should be the language of the us and also the offical language? I stand on this as a firm yes.... and my god does it get the PC people going lol.

I agree, however I am with LW the fees that are incurred through this process is atrocious!

Yep they need a sponsor.  The idea behind this as I understand it, is so that the immigrant doesn't become a burden to society (like the illegals).

I don't know much about the test yet. We are still determining whether my wife will become a citizen right now.  The US WAS in talks about offering a dual-citizenship but with her country closing our airbase I'm not sure that will help.
