With Hurricane Irene bearing down on the east coast I, as someone who “enjoyed” the hurricane experience while residing in New Orleans, offer one bit of advice: Board up the windows, load up your kids and pets and get the heck out of the way.
That being said, there’s a much bigger, far more dangerous storm heading our country’s way which must be respected, and against which preventative steps must be taken. It’s the category five economic storm about to broadside and overwhelm the United States of America. A distinctively unique and “progressive” combination of oppressive taxation, business hostile regulations and big government socialist programs are alighning in such a way as to render America’s economy impotent and incapable of sustaining the economy and lifestyle to which Americans are long accustomed.
One of the most fallacious policies of the current White House is their recently announced policy of halting the deportion of illegal aliens and granting work visas to those deemed by self imagined and self appointed elites as worthy of remaining in America. Despite the fact that the Dream Act failed to pass in Congress, and that millions of Americans out of work, it’s the considered opinion of unelected bureaucrats that swelling the “progressive” ranks through back door amnesty is more important than ensuring the economic stabliity and viability of natural born Citizens and legal immigrants.
If this policy is not reversed, with people like Jeffery Immelt shipping good paying jobs overseas, “progressives” will be responsible for condemning Americans to competing against illegal aliens for minimum wage jobs in perpetuity.
Do “progressives” really want to go down in history as the first to condemn Americans to a reduced standard of living while ensuring diminished opportunity for the next generation? Unless and until we reverse the job killing policies of “progressives” this will be our fate.
