So, I'm not anti-Mexican except for when my neighbors play that circus music, but everyone is always like, aren't we a nation of immigrants? And
I'm like YES! Immigrants of all kinds! These amnesty bills will create the exact opposite of that. If we import Mexicans in bulk we're hurting them
and us because we're screwing all the people that want to come in legally from all over the world. Diversity is a good thing people! However, we do
need more people. We don't have an increasnig birth rate and our system is based on that very thing which is continued growth.
The real problem here has nothing to do with race. The real problem is greed and the Mexicans are being exploited too.
Look at what happens when they hire them at half price. I'm out of a job so I won't be buying anything and they'll only be buying half of what I
would have. What's the number one problem right now? Nobody's buying anything anymore right? We're all in this together. You can't screw everyone
out of half of what they're worth and still expect to sell your products.
What's going on is all the companies are saying, we're only going to pay everyone half, but then next year they make less revenue and they start boo
hooing about it. The foundation of the economy is that you work and buy something. THERE MUST BE WORK FOR THAT TO HAPPEN! THERE MUST BE MONEY!
It's not just illegal immigration. It's hiring cheaper workers, it's off shoring jobs, it's replacing workers with machines. Automated checkout
machines are my pet freaking peeve by the way. Yeah it's cheaper. Don't know who's gonna buy your crap next year though. Automated checkout
machines don't eat!
Also, the American government is never coming to help on this one. We keep saying no and they keep saying yes. If I put on my tinfoil I'd guess it's
because of our fiat currency system. It depends on ever continuing growth and we have a stable birth rate. Deflation and stagflation collapses or
screws up the system. Therefore the government knows we need extra people even if we don't like them simply to increase the growth curve by buying
more crap and paying more taxes before it all goes up in a ball of flames. It's not going to work though because we have the people. We just don't
have anything for them to do.
However, I can't say I really feel sorry for the country. Everyone kept saying buy American, buy American and we all rushed out to Walmart to buy
cheap lead-laden Chinese crap at the new automated checkout machines. This includes me by the way. Now we've lost jobs and Walmart is the only place
some can afford to shop and even if you buy it some place else, it turns out it's still just cheap Chinese lead-laden crap! So, I hope Obama's plan
works, but it'd better create some real jobs or we're going to need a completely new paradigm other than the one we currently have, which is
basically, will work for food. That just won't work if there's no jobs now will it?
