Under the Government Bus

Jeff Sessions, the great Senator from Alabama,  is constantly talking about how the influx of illegals is damaging job prospects for American workers.  We usually think of this as affecting mostly farm and service jobs, but the reality is that it impacts every job.  IT workers are living on a salary that it the equivalent of that in the Clinton years.  On the low end the influx of illegals is devastating working poor Americans and for the middle class the H1B program has robbed skilled workers of opportunity.

Who do we blame for this.  The answer is simple, the Federal Government.  These are policies shaped strictly by large corporate contributions to PACs and candidates.  Companies that want to keep wages low have maneuvered our representatives into giving away the opportunity due American citizens.  This is all in the name of corporate profit and political gain.

As food inflation hits record highs, poverty hits record highs and the number of people on government assistance explodes, these policies, which penalize the majority of working Americans, remain unchanged.  Perhaps the news cycle, instead of focusing on ISIS, domestic violence in the NFL, the Kardashians, and Ferguson should focus on helping the majority of US citizens.  All the other stuff may be important, but compared to the misery the sell out of our citizenship has caused, it is little.

The solution is simple.  We need to close the borders and create huge penalties for hiring illegal workers.  Then we need to cancel the H1B program altogether.  The prosperity and the security for every US citizen will go up dramatically.  With hiring for illegal workers stopped, the ones here illegally will go home on their own.  Amazing.

It is a shame that so few in government are patriots to the tune of caring out our own citizens.

 

The Collective — Destroying the Middle Class

A war on the middle class is the true nature of what is occurring in the United States .  Briefly,  lets examine the facts.  Working Americans are subjected to higher prices, out of control fuel costs, exorbitant health care costs, stagnant wages, less employment opportunity, and higher taxes.  Why is that?

Government regulation and interference in the economy has destroyed innovation, expansion and capital investment in new business.  The real victims, the ones paying for out of control immigration, welfare, millions of non-disabled on disability,  3 years of unemployment benefits  and a host of other governmental programs are the working class.

The working class is being squeezed out of existence to the point that there will come a time that those earning a living will no longer see that as a net plus.  They will quit.  Many already have quit which is why the unemployed and not looking for work group  is at a all time high.   As more quit there will be no one to support all the benefits and the system will collapse.

The value of those who work has been diminished.  Their contributions ignored as the media props up policies that move us toward a condition much like that of the Soviet Union in 1989.  No one saw a reason to work for a government that did not let them keep any of the products of their labor and that rewarded poor effort as much as exceptional effort.  They had all become part of a collective that produced nothing.  With no production there was nothing to pay for government so it collapsed.

We are on that path today.  Allowing uncontrolled immigration by non- producing individuals, by cutting off energy production at the knees, by forcing prices higher through regulation and fiscal policy our government is trying to recreate the collective.    It is far down that path.

It may take more than votes to reverse this ship.  Our current leadership is determined to purposely drive the ship onto the rocks.  It wants to destroy the family, the middle class, and all those that would think for themselves and live free.

I do not know how to stop the train.  Few of our leaders are willing to challenge the destruction of our constitution by the failure of the executive to uphold the law.    As the middle class gets squeezed and can no longer survive there will be unrest.  Murrieta, CA was a start but mild as to the way it will be if the ship continues on its current course.
