The Occupation Of America has always been to provide a safe haven for the huddled masses of the world and She has fulfilled Her mission well over the years—and, regardless of some claims by detractors, She continues to fulfill her mission today!
I notice there are an awfully lot of myth-informed people who like to ramble about how The Occupation Of America has changed from something wonderful into something less desirable. There are some fools out there who even claim that America is evolving into a state of Socialism.
Nothing could be further from the truth, of course. The Occupation Of America is safe from all the winds of adversity that blow from without and from within because of the steadfastness of Her diversity of People. Americans are a People of determination, perseverance and Industry and when the chips are down, they shine as examples of courage and fortitude and they have become the envy of the World because of these qualities.
There are many who should know better — particularly some from the Right Wing side of Conservatism– who love to demean our country, our People, our President and our Administration. I think they must do this entirely for political gain because I believe their consuming passion is power and greed.
I have come to believe that this element of our Society definitely does not like the Middle Class, Labor, Students and the Elderly because they seem to be always working to destroy the Social Safety Nets that benefit those most in need.
There was a time when I could have heartily recommended some of the ideologies of Conservatism because there was a time in American History when I felt they were aspirations of more noble ambitions.
That was long before such ideas as those promoted by White Nationalist thinking was allowed access to events such as the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Now, some of the least educated and most easily led from among adherents of Conservatism seem to be peddling some kind of doctrine about how our money– the dollar– has been weakened on the world markets because of the high cost of American Labor.
Some of these airheads are saying that American Labor caused the perceived crisis with the value of our currency because the cost of labor caused prices for the products produced to become so high they could not compete in the world markets.
I guess that is one of their excuses for shipping all our good jobs to foreign markets– where they can get cheap labor (At sometimes sweatshop rates). If that is the case, then it is not prudence that drives such moves… in my opinion it is plain old unmitigated greed!
These detractors of The American way of life like to point to modern day Greece as an example of what happens when a government allows its social safety net to get out of control.
But you know what? America is not Greece! America is not Greece now, never has been Greece and never will be Greece! America is uniquely qualified to find a way to solve her problems with the inherent innovative spirit of Her people and I have no fears that we shall someday fail to be able to keep the promises that were made about out social safety nets.
One of the biggest lies of the Right is that our Social Security Program is on the verge of imminent collapse and bankruptcy. Nothing could be further from the truth. As I understand it, from creditable authority, the Social Security System is completely solvent for at least the next 30 years. I am sure that by the time the 30 years has passed, we shall have found a way to keep the promises that were made to our seniors.
Has anyone noticed that the old “Trickle Down Economics” never worked? Has anyone noticed that a lot of those myth-informed entrepreneurs who once thought they could do better by shipping our American jobs over seas are starting to bring them back home again because the victims of greed on foreign shores who were once willing to work for a pittance are getting wise and demanding a fair wage?
I think it is hilarious! It is once again becoming cheaper for some industries...
