On The Streets…..Of America

I just watched a video on homelessness and I was quite struck by a brilliant observation from someone who commented on the video.

“People oppose welfare but they defend monopolism with every tooth and nail. They’re both forms of wealth redistribution. The only reason anyone has a good paying job is because they’re employed by companies who are somehow protected from competition, either by IP, geography, zoning laws, or licensing and permit schemes. The same laws prohibit individuals from employing themselves, resulting in widespread poverty. Anyone who has a good paying job has not a square inch of room to complain about welfare.

Nobody can be expected to get a job without a home. If all the money we spend on building new prisons were used instead to build public apartment high rises, crime would drop, minimum wages would go further, and modest rent rates could be a source of public revenue rather than a constant tax liability. The government collects more than enough taxes to guarantee that every citizen has a safe, clean place to sleep and bathe. I don’t care if lazy people chose instead to sit around their apartments all day doing nothing. It’s cheaper than prisons and more civilized than abandoning the poor to loitering the streets, prostitution, drugs, shoplifting, mugging, breaking into homes, sleep in filth, spread bugs and germs and get sick all the time.” – by Ox1A3C3E7

That comment is spot on! We have no problem with the fact that monopolies are encouraged when mere decades ago, there were laws in place to prevent monopolies, but that is a thing of the past. And now because of it, corporate greed runs amok, unchecked and add into the mixture the fact of huge tax breaks for these mega-corporations that have no competition and the people are held hostage by them. How many cable companies are in existence today? Telephone companies? Microsoft software is a monopoly since our computer systems use Microsoft software damn near exclusively. All of this leads to boundless profits for corporations while wages for those who work at the bottom rungs of those corporations earn wages that would not keep a hamster in feed, thus leading to hunger, homelessness and hopelessness. And what does the government do? It continues to aid and abet these corporations into becoming monopolies by refusing to break them up and also by encouraging the growth of monopolies with our tax dollars. Amazon is yet another ‘prime’ example even as Donald Trump likes to pretend to take umbrage with Jeff Bezos. My guess would be that he is just jealous of the fact that Bezos has far surpassed him in business acumen which Trump never had to begin with.

Meanwhile, video after video can be viewed that showcases the plight of homelessness, year after year and yet what is done to rein this in? Nothing. Just talk and more talk and hand wringing. Anyone can follow a homeless person around with a camera for a few days to get an idea of what life is like for the homeless, but when all is said and done, what good does that do? It only elicits a few comments and likes for those comments and suggestions and ideas and then on to the next. The sad fact is that ALL of us are headed where the homeless are. People are not paying attention to the fact that those who are sitting on Skid Row in Anytown, USA are going to have plenty of company. The plight of those who are already homeless will soon be felt by us all because no one is seriously trying to do anything about what millions of people are dealing with every single day. It matters not if I write poetry about the homeless or if people post videos about the homeless because if there is no real feasible solutions to throw at the problems that cause homelessness, the situation is going to continue to worsen.

Those of us who are comfortably looking at the situation from afar are not even thinking that we shall soon be in their shoes. Some of us are content to think that our jobs will always be there as will our pensions. I wouldn’t count on that because pension funds are being raided as I type this and Social Security does not pay enough to live on. And though there are suggestions to move oversees or to Latin American countries where your Social Security will go further, that is just not feasible for everyone. And with many of those countries that are named as great retirement havens in the news for having mass protests over a lack of food, medicine and housing, who in their right mind would head to those areas flaunting their ‘privilege’ in the face of mobs of people, gaunt and sunken-eyed looking to feed their hungry children? Take your ass on over to Venezuela and see how you fare. Try Honduras. Guatemala. Mexico City, Mexico. Either get caught up in drug warfare or get caught up in a United States staged coup against a Latin American country. But either way, your situation is not going to be roses and all things bright and beautiful forever. And even in countries like Ecuador and Costa Rica, the natives are going to get mighty sick and tired of foreigners coming in buying up everything for pennies on the dollar and paying them pennies to wait on them hand and foot.

And as usual, it is mostly whites who can take themselves off when the shit hits the fan for them while those who already have the shit hitting the fan, must stay and deal with a country that is rapidly descending into Third world status. Some of you may think it funny that hookworms are dripping out of the assholes of homeless people, nationwide, but it’s not. Some of you may think it funny that typhus is making the rounds of the homeless population in multiple cities, but it’s not. Add to those issues are the other physical and mental illnesses that most homeless people are dealing with and what that means is that hospitals are overwhelmed with emergency room visits by people whom they cannot collect payment from.

People try and act as though they cannot understand that mass homelessness costs more than housing and necessary services to stabilize the homeless once they have been housed and with communicable diseases on the rise, that is no small problem especially seeing as how there are diseases that no antibiotic can cure. When serious plagues start resurfacing and plagues never before seen start occurring, what is going to be the exit strategy for that? There is none. We’d ALL better wake up to the fact that homelessness is not just impacting those who are sitting out on the sidewalks or who are sitting inside tents or living in their vehicles, it is going to impact us all in some way or another. Something for you to think about while shopping for chicken wings and hoagie ‘meat’ for your Superbowl parties. What we ‘give’ importance to is just too ludicrous for words given the seriousness of the situation as it pertains to the rapid descent of this shithole called America. People are homeless, sick and hungry while those of us who have not yet joined them are anxiously awaiting the Superbowl since bets have been placed and there are parties to be hosted. It is no wonder we are sinking like a stone since we will get behind anything that will distract us from the truth and from seeing those who have already gone where we too shall go. And you can take that to the bank!

No Country Wants The Dimwitted And The Poor!

immigration hypocrisy

 

Below is an excerpt of a speech given by President Barack Obama regarding immigration:

I’ll make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders have proposed.”

So, in essence, Obama is stating that America only wants the brightest and the best. If you have no skills and you have not graduated from college, then we really don’t want you. For how can you make substantial contributions to this country if you lack skills and a college degree? And if you lack those things, then that means that in all likelihood, we will have to support you and our safety net is already overtaxed and then some. Indeed, we do want immigrants, but only if you are the “brightest and the best!”

Now, we come to Russia!

Huge Breaking News! Russia Adopts Simplified New Citizenship Law!
I frequently get asked how to move to Russia and especially how to obtain Russian citizenship. As the Western World’s crisis intensifies, as the upcoming uncertainty becomes more obvious, this question is more and more on people’s mind.

Moving to Russia is not a problem if you have a skill or talent Russians value and if you can obtain gainful employment where employer would vouch for you; if you open a business, which provides jobs and pays taxes; if you have certain material assets.

Here again, we have the doors to Russia opening for you, but only if you have ‘a skill or talent Russians value’. If you are poor or dimwitted or in other words, the opposite of the best and the brightest, don’t even bother. They don’t want you there either!

Selecting The Best And The Brightest

This policy primer discusses three key questions that arise in the development of policies that aim to attract and select highly skilled migrant workers:
1.Which criteria should be used to select and attract the ‘best and brightest’?

Attracting highly skilled workers is a key policy objective in many high-income countries including the UK.

The dimwitted and the poor need not apply. Huddle somewhere else. The doors are closed and shall remain so!

Next up! We have the five different means of entrance to New Zealand.

1. Skilled Migrant
2. Family
3. Business
4. Investor
5. Temporary Visa

Once again, the dimwitted and the poor, need not apply. This is becoming redundant, but I must continue to plow onward in case there are others who are dimwitted and poor like me who just cannot get it the first four times.

Do you want to try and immigrate to Australia? Well now, let us see what can we can do for you!

If you live overseas and you’d like the opportunity to live and work in Australia, the first step is to find out more about the visa options that are available to you. See Work visas for skilled migration visa options.

Oops! Sorry! There is that ‘skilled’ migration thing again.

Okay, I think I’ve finally made my point!

So, with ALL countries calling for ONLY skilled immigrants, where does that leave the ‘unskilled’? Where can the ‘unskilled’ immigrate to? Why did France send America, the Statue of Liberty calling for “the tired, the poor and the huddled masses” if no one wants them if they have no skill or education of which to speak? It is quite apparent that every country is in a race to compete for only the ‘brightest and the best’ and the rest can just die, already. And we have the nerve to wonder why migrants are being detained at borders and are kept from entering other countries? It has something to do with weeding out those who are unskilled and uneducated. No country wants those people, no country at all.

This means that if I am working at McDonalds and I lose my job and I go to the library and look up countries that I would like to immigrate to in an attempt to better my life situation, I have no choice but to become homeless because I am dimwitted and poor and therefore, no country will have me, not even my own. This is what is happening, folks. And it is not right that now, countries all over the world can dictate who can immigrate and who cannot. Everyone should be welcome, regardless of their educational attainment or their skill level because there should be a job for ALL skill levels; even the unskilled because anyone can wait tables, take a meal order, check a hotel guest in and wash a vehicle.

When illegal immigration was all the rage hundreds of years ago when the ‘Pilgrims’ arrived on the shores of America, did the Indians ask if the ‘Pilgrims’ had good job skills or a college education? Were they allowed to send them packing if they had no outstanding qualifications? We ALL know the answer to THAT question! Especially, the Indians!

When Botany Bay penal colony was being established in Australia, were the Aborigines asked if they had a problem with it? Were they presented with a set of credentials for all convicts that were left on their shores? Once again, we ALL know the answer to THAT question!

So, why is it that now, the governments of many of these countries that were taken over, illegally, get to declare who can immigrate when every single so-called citizen that is not indigenous to that region has no right to be there? I recently read a comment on my blog regarding how those who are indigenous to New Zealand have no voice in the government. That is wrong on so many levels, it is unreal. Outsiders came in, took over and the people who were there before they even got there, have no political representation. Seriously?

I just recently looked into moving to another country and what I found is appalling. I was looking into real estate in Ecuador and ‘whites’ are selling out Ecuadoreans to all and sundry. I was directed to a real estate agent, who was ‘white’ by the way, and who was selling condos, land and houses in Ecuador and who praised the huge expat community to no end. Not much was said about the ‘locals’. I was also encouraged to attend a $2,000.00 seminar that consisted of expats telling of their experiences of coming to Ecuador and finding it to be the place of their dreams and oh so cheap to live there! Expat communities made up of Americans, Canadians, Australians and the like have taken over Ecuador, Panama, Belize, Costa Rica and every damn where else. Country clubs are saturating those places as well as spas, tennis courts and upscale eating establishments; not to mention every other thing that these people left their countries to supposedly escape from, only to get right into building the very same, just in a new location. They speak of nothing else besides their new condos and ranch homes and their maid and how little the maid service costs and how cheap the cost of a gardener is as well. Ecuadoreans and other regions where natives are indigenous are left standing on the street while taxis rush to pick up those who make up the expat communities because they pay more. This is absolutely ridiculous!

Not only are whites denying poor, uneducated people, the ability to immigrate, they are also causing indigenous populations untold grief and as usual, there is no remorse shown, nor do they even bother to attempt to check their ‘white privilege’ at the border. These peoples lands are taken over and they are designated as second class citizens to some pompous expats who wouldn’t spit on them if they were on fire to help put it out. I swear to gawd, white folks just take the damn cake and eat it too and it had better be served by some indigenous person who should be glad to have a damn job; and in many instances, who will also have no political representation, but you will have a job, even low-skilled as you are.

The dim-witted and the poor? No country wants you! But if you happen to live in a nice, sunny spot near an ocean, even if you are low-skilled or un-skilled, some white expat will have a job for you; cleaning up after them, cooking their meals, serving them and landscaping their yards and not to mention, tending their golf courses. For the love of ……!!!!!
