ny-times-illegal-immigration

If the threat of being deported or incarcerated does not stem the tide of illegal immigration, perhaps the threat of completely losing one’s children will do the trick.  While this may sound harsh, it is the consequences of illegal acts perpetrated by the illegal immigrant parents.  The enormous problem I have with this article is that it is titled “After Losing Freedom Some Immigrants Face Loss of Custody of Their Children”  These parents never had freedom. Freedom is only given to the just and the law-abiding citizens in this country.  It is not, and should never, be granted to individuals who were merely able to prolong the consequences of their illegal acts long enough to give birth to children in this nation.

bail-out-protest

 

The more I hear of businesses demanding a bail out, the more fearful I am of a socialist government taking over our nation.  A bail out mentality is the benchmark of a socialistic, or even a communistic government.  We give up our freedoms every time we accept “assistance” from the government, banks, or even a rich Uncle.  What ever happened to the attitude of “Independence” in our great country?  Perhaps that got thrown out as everyone started celebrating the “4th of July” instead of intended “Independence Day.”  The value of our independence is worth more than all $700 billion- even for one person!  I’m sure the hundreds of thousands who have spilt their blood so that we could truly be independent would be horrified at the thought of how weakly we value such freedom today. Much of that blood was spilt in order to abolish slavery, and yet we willingly enslave ourselves when we stand by and watch a sizeable portion of our lives, our futures, and that of our progenitors be sold out for $715 billion in total. (And that’s just what we know about.)  I see a bail out as one trying to cheat consequences.  And yet we all know that doing merely compounds the consequences as they were originally determined.

 

shackles1Bail outs have long- term consequences that you ultimately do not want. And you certainly do not want them for your children or grandchildren. And yet your government leaders are shackling us with these burdens without representing your interests and with every attempt to keep you in the dark as to their true consequences.  These decisions are being made in a myopic and duplicitous manner by those with power with the intention that those who are working 2 and 3 jobs just to make ends meet will be too busy, too drained to give put up any resistance.  You can say that it won’t come from our tax dollars…at least not in such a manner that it’s so obvious.  Do you really think that our government printing up an extra $715 billion in our economy will have no affect on the value of our currency? 

 

The value of our currency determines the value of your work.  As the value of the dollar goes down, the need for you to work more hours increases just to obtain the necessities in life.  In truth, we would gasp in outrage and plot an all out revolution if we clearly saw just how many of our hours we’re forced to work just to pay the debts which our out of control government has thrust upon us.  And of course, the government has brokered the maximum amount of power when it comes to collecting their share.  After all, who among us does not have a moment of fear when we hear the words IRS tax audit?

 

It’s apparent that we no longer broker money and monetized assets folks. We now broker power, and I’m not talking about electricity either.  The attitude of the majority of our leaders is “money is nothing if it doesn’t come with power.” Why else would someone spend millions to win a position that only pays $165,000 a year?  It’s the power that it buys, not their commitment to serving the people they represent.

 

Whatever happened to the police officers that children looked up to as heroes?  Today we only see them use their power to violate the very laws they are supposed to enforce with the belief that they do so beyond reproach.

 

What ever happened to the professional basketball and football players that we used to look up to as superstars? Instead we see arrests for atrocious crimes knowing full well that the arrests only represent a small fraction of what’s actually being committed due to successful power brokering.

 

Thank goodness there’s still the Lance Armstrong, the Michael Phelps, and a few others like them to show us that there is still power and strength in goodness.

 

In closing I just wanted to share this little write-up by an anonymous author as they attempt toe explain the orchestrations of the bail outs to us.

 

Bail Out explained (Author Unknown)

Young Henry in Montana bought a horse from a farmer for $100. The
farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day he drove
up and said, “Sorry son but I have some bad news, the horse died.”
Henry replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”

The farmer said, “Can’t do that as I went and spent the money already”
Henry said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.” The farmer
asked, “What are you going to do with him?” Henry said, “I’m going to
raffle him off.” The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”
Henry said, “Sure I can, just watch me and I just won’t tell anybody
he’s dead.”

A month later, the farmer met up with Henry and asked, “What
happened with that dead horse?” Henry said, “I raffled him off, sold 500
tickets at two dollars each, and made a $998 profit. The farmer
said, “Didn’t anyone complain?” Henry said, “Just the guy who won so
I gave him his two dollars back.”

Henry grew up and works now for the government and he was the one
who figured out how to “bail us out”.
