I am the parent of a Millennial, I wont lie, in the end I don't discuss politics much, any issues I have could and would be resolved in a year if they
ended the current Lobbying system, my kids know my opinion, our politicians are bought and sold, protect yourself from X, Y and Z, most of what your
sold and told to think is bs because of that single factor.
The other thing I do is encourage Math and Science, because that's where they dupe everybody and you can't be duped by what you understand, if your in
tech your going to make money and if worse comes to worse have the ability to escape whatever arises, those in power don't have the brains to invent
the technology and that's the real weapon: "tech the average joe doesn't understand" being in control of it might let you do something to assure it's
not used negatively against decent people. The topic reminds me of the story of Robin Hood which mainly is the story of a new Bow String which could
pierce the Spanish Steel of the time, prior to the new bow string a knight on horse back was invincible but once it could be pierced people became
free again, I feel there is an analogy to tech in modern times, currently the control is out of the peoples hands. I would say todays bow string is
the battery... when someone invents a battery that can hold large amounts of power on a small enough space we can truly be as you say "off the grid"
but overall I want them understanding the tech, how to be savy on a computer, why the food is bad, and maybe, maybe help invent that Battery.
What crisis? They are just people, the numbers don't even add up... If someone were really concerned about immigration and knew what they were talking
about they would be talking about concern over Asia, Asians are the no 1 immigration source, if you go to the West coast what you see is entire
counties being turned over, numbers like 20%, 30%, 40% and major cities, Canada with a population of only 37 Million is likely to be an Asian nation
in 40 years, Mexicans are already a major demographic here but Asians are opening birthing houses and coming in larger numbers and it's not like China
and India unlike Mexico will ever run out of more people and many are State sponsored, The fact that there is funding available to them and many come
on tech and entrepreneur visa means that this is a population who will have a lot of power rapidly just take a walk through google or Microsoft,
Microsoft who is laying off 18,000 people and replacing them essentially with Asian workers... Then we could talk about trade disparity,
manufacturing, construction and development for a year in which we re being completely outclassed as opposed to Mexico which offers us cheap labor
and is not hurting any American Industry while China is building autonomous cities within the USA and around the world.
What I'm saying is it's blatant racism and distraction, while we control the Colorado and keep water from Mexico the Chinese are draining the Great
lakes lol, it's almost a joke... don't get me wrong on the subject, I think the presence of that many Asians in "the long run" will be good for
America, they have to live here once they come and they are a productive, modern populace imho... I'm just calling BS on the whole "crisis" aspect on
the border, the only crisis is cartel controlled dope and it's a crisis we share with mexico and also a crisis that's our own fault because of the
stupid war on drugs which if we ended could fix that problem over night. Just look at the dent 2 States legalizing marijuana has made. But it's
nonsense and racially motivated, I have more viewers on my Facebook pages than refugees came over in this "crisis"
Frankly, I miss the days when I could walk over the border from San Diego into Tijuana for drinks on a Friday night, that was a good time, this
"crisis" atmosphere simply sucks...
