and yet, as the boomers retire, it's quite possible that we will need these workers here paying taxes, otherwise, our younger generation will be strapped with the aged population to take care of, and the outrageous taxes that is gonna result from our government's present (and past)insanity!! I don't mind them selecting people to come into this country to become citizens, but they have made it far too easy for anyone just to come in, without going through any channels, take a job for far less cost that it would cost the employer a citizen to do.
in plain simple words, if our economy has any hope of growing in the near future, immigration is gonna be necessary....
but there's a saner way for this to happen, and well, we have the laws already on the books for it.... they just need to enforce the laws!! heck they can start to going after these companies that are sending headhunters across the southern border looking for their future employees instead of looking at the applications they have stuffed in the file cabinent!

I think that there is a new hope on the horizen. The two factions of the elites have been warrings. The ones that would enslave us for selfish reasons are getting there asses handed to them. They are the ones that created this economic crisies. The other group are as feed up with them as your and me and are in control now. Many would have you get angry and violent. This is not the way. Watch the movie Ghandi if you feel you want to take back this country. Violence will only create more hardship and pain.

Yes there is a new world order taking over. But its not same self centered group that sought to bring us to this crises point. The new group is working throught the g-20 and not the G-8. The US dollar as the reserve curancy is at its end and along with it the tyrany that has held sway over the world with it.

Zoellick was a bush appointee

who Zoellick is:

"Zoellick, former Executive Vice President of Fannie Mae and advisor to Goldman Sachs, is a top elitist who was intimately involved in the Enron scandal and the 2000 presidential election debacle. He was also a signatory to the Project For A New American century document that called for invading Iraq as part of implementing a brutal world empire in 1998. He was later a foreign policy advisor to George W. Bush.

As to be expected, Zoellick is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission. He also attended the annual invitation-only conferences of the Bilderberg Group in 1991, 2003, 2006 and 2007."

Let's look at the entire quote:
Jones would like to say that it is all BS on the part of the Elite when they say things like this,

BUT if they have changed their attitudes, then this is completely appropriate:
It looks to me, reading the entire quote that this is a very big step, and a commitment has been made.

The quote Jones used is a tiny part of the comments Zoellick made, out of context and twisted for Jones' purpose.

from the Financial Express link you gave:

"Speaking at a Thomson Reuters Newsmaker in London, Zoellick said many of the immediate challenges of the crisis could be addressed if the Group of 20 reformed and empowered existing international institutions to help resist protectionism, evaluate the effectiveness of stimulus packages, and monitor banking reforms.

Zoellick said in his speech ahead of the G-20 summit in London new data from the World Bank showed that a estimated 53 million more people would be trapped in poverty this year, subsisting on less than $1.25 a day, because of the crisis. The world economy would contract by 1.7 per cent this year compared to growth of 1.9 per cent in 2008 - the first global decline since World War II.

Poor people in developing countries had far less of a cushion to protect them against the effects of the crisis.

"In London, Washington, and Paris people talk of bonuses or no bonuses. In parts of Africa, South Asia, and Latin America, the struggle is for food or no food," Zoellick said.

Citing World Bank initiatives in microfinance, infrastructure and bank capitalisations, Zoellick said it was important for governments, international institutions, civil society, and the private sector to mobilise resources and constantly innovate.

As an example of the World Bank's latest innovation, Zoellick said he hoped the G-20 would endorse a new $50 billion Global Trade Liquidity Programme. The programme combines a $1.0 billion investment from the World Bank with financing from governments and regional development banks. These public funds can be leveraged by a risk-sharing arrangement with major private sector partners, such as Standard Chartered, Standard Bank, and Rabobank.

"G-20 backing will help us gain more momentum, thereby increasing support," Zoellick said.

Zoellick noted that those who had recognised the scale of today's crisis were calling for new global governance regimes.

But the immediate challenge is to reform, empower, and use existing institutions more effectively, including by giving developing countries more representation.

"If leaders are serious about creating new global responsibilities or governance, let them start by modernising multilateralism to empower the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank Group to monitor national policies," Zoellick said. "Bringing sunlight to national decision-making would contribute to transparency, accountability, and consistency across national policies."
(NOTE~ this is the only part Alex Jones used...)

Zoellick said developing countries needed to be part of the global solution to the global crisis.

"Isn't it time to institutionalise support for the most vulnerable during crises, especially those not of their own making said Zoellick, who has proposed that developed countries allocate 0.7 per cent of the stimulus packages to a Vulnerability Fund for developing countries.

"A commitment to put in place structures to support and fund safety nets for those most at risk would go a long way to show that this G-group will not endorse a two tier world - with summits for financial systems, and silence for the poor."

"We have seen over the last six decades how markets can lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty while expanding freedom. But we have also seen how unfettered greed and recklessness can squander those very gains," Zoellick said.

"For the 21st Century, we need market economies with a human face. Human market economies must recognise their responsibility to the individual and society."

So perhaps if we can put aside our nationalism for a while, and take a broader view of the world we can perhaps see a bigger and brighter future ahead of us. This is some of the best evidence I can give to you of the changes that are taking place at this time. Changes not only for the benefit of the US and UK but for the nations. Hang in there and give it a chance.

In the meantime prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I'm not saying there is not going to be hard times ahead, because there are. But if you all work together and support one another we can get through it to a brighter tomorrow. Violence is not the answer. Watch Ghandi the movie.

Excuse me but before we go national as your long dissertation outlines, shoulden't we take care of our own back yard first? Just a suggestion.
