U.S Immigration Issues #2

U.S. Immigration Issues #2

The following video will provide you with the kind of information you must know to make rational, wisdom-based decisions that directly impact immigration, political activism and outcomes, cultural changes, and ultimately the viability of America’s Constitutional Republic.  

It is “politically incorrect” to question the qualities statistically associated with any race, religion, or creed in Post-Modern America. 

Those who would dare to do so are in for stinging rebukes, social censure, threats, physical attacks, and even the loss of their employment or careers; no matter the quality  of their motivation or intentions. The forces of our undoing have massively diminished our Constitutional First Amendment rights to free speech. 

This has been achieved over many decades by various political action groups, radical liberals and plethora of hotly unprincipled and litigious organizations fighting for power in an increasingly uncivil and raging culture war.

A cultural war in which any genuine concerns or worries leveled against one of the combatants is labeled as “Hateful” or a “Slanderous Hate-Crime”. Those who are so accused are then attacked, their ability to make a living is often crippled, or they frequently are dragged into court where they are financially ruined and defamed by our mass news and social media. When someone is branded a slanderer, a racist, sexist, homophone,  Islamophobia, an ageist, etc., etc., and the quality of their life is often ruined.

There are very good reasons to condemn slanderous and hateful generalizations about whole classes of people, to be sure! 

But, how does one differentiate between slander or hate speech, and honest statements about very dangerous predominant truths about a class of people that are capable of destroying our way of life, that of our loved ones; and perhaps even our very lives!

What is to be done when there is statistically validated evidence that a particular immigrating class of people is far more likely than virtually all other’s to to include many individuals who are bent upon wreaking crime, death and destruction upon America. This, while others of these immigrants, perhaps better educated and funded by their own political action groups, work to infiltrate our Constitutionally open and democratic political system. What is to be done when, once in power, they are then publicly observed to work feverishly to ” transform” America to A Theocracy, totally antithetical to our historical being.

Many in America are well past the observation that our socioculture is in a frightful state of decline. Now, they more commonly ask: What can be done to reverse America’s apparent death spiral?!

If we listen, there are many suggestions. But, it is not clear that any of them will work. 

Yet, one thing should be clear. America’s voters must be helped to way-more-closely vet those who are running for political office, at all levels. It is especially important to more closely vet political candidates from Islamic nations and the various smaller enclaves that spawn radical Islamic activists and terrorists. 

The very same is true of political candidates who will fight to establish socialistic/communistic practices in America, thereby further eroding citizen’s freedoms while constructing an all-controlling leviathan federal government.

The radical forces of political correctness and intimidation that interfere with the discussion of critical and factual information about “classes of people” needed to make wise and informed voting decisions must be powerfully rejected.

In America, the uninformed voting public, or the stubbornly non-voting public, will get exactly what they deserve.

Strengthen America’s historical First Amendment Rights and support the difficult discussions that must ensue, or prepare to experience the nightmarish unraveling of the American Dream.

You must see the following video; and, yes, there is more to come on such matters.

When “Human Capital” Is Not Enough

February 19, 2010

When “Human Capital” Is Not Enough

The development of human capital is commonly identified as one of the prerequisites to sociocultural and economic success.

Normally, building human capital is presented as educating our people in science and technology, as well as in marketable skills.

But something is missing from this modern conception and it is not a small thing: It is a suicidal  omission. 

The citizens of a socioculture that plans to live long and well, must also teach their children an accurate history of their own culture and a system of guiding ethics with which to maintain it. As importantly, these future citizens must also be taught to love and respect their own history and comply with societies moral/ethical guidelines.

In America, these critical ingredients of human capital  were once taught by schools, churches, families, Boy and Girl Scouts, and the like. Though it may be hard to believe,  America’s entertainment media once, long ago, also  provided a strong assist to teaching these form of social capital to our children and youth.

At the present  in Post-Modern America, who now teaches these ethical virtues to our children? It is not the schools, our government has greatly impaired that function. It is not the church, as families are much less intimately involved than they once were. It is not the families who are working two jobs or more,  reduced, reconfigured, geographically split, and who are often divorced into four parents and eight grandparents (or more). In this last problem “too many chefs” often spoil the brew. It is not in our other strong organizations dedicated to acculturating our youth in  the values and ethics of Americans.  Boy Scout and Girl Scout (also Cub and Brownie Scout) enrollments have been diminishing. America’s  entertainment media have savagely betrayed it’s parents and children to wreak moral and ethical havoc upon them.

Who is teaching our children the essential moral/ethical components of Social Capital in Post-Modern America!?

Thank God some folks are, but their numbers are diminishing.

If something is lost, the  most effective to way to  find it again is to retrace our steps to the place that we once possessed it. 

True, we cannot turn back time. But we sure as hell can begin to teach ethics and values as we  once did, even if we do it in many different and new ways. It is just a matter of  admitting the lethality of one of our own stupid oversights in America,  the will to work and sacrifice as a nation, and the drive  to survive in a very hostile world.

Many of us are wondering if we have what it takes anymore.

Our youth will probably  know the answer within their life-time.
