America: The Poverty is sing to thee. Sweet land of creditor calling I sing to
thee. Land where credit cards rule my life and children slave labor at night.
Let Freedom Ring!

Nice Little Song. Sad but True. America is broke and incapable of paying off its
debt. Consider these facts: Tax Fraud is an all important function in corporate
America. Ernst and Young sold such overly aggressive tax shelters it prompted
prosecuters to look into accounting fraud. Corporate fraud has been increased
in another year. Corporations in 2002 paid 211 billion dollars in taxes and 194
billion in 2003. Corporate America refuses to accept it's position as a corporate
citizen. It pays people to poverty yet lavishes those who are at the top off the
organization, as with Dick Grasso's near $200 million dollars.

Consider this fact: The requirements of stupid social programs such as Social
Security and Welfare are a pathetic breach of common sense that will ultimately destroy the
Constitution of America. Two million disabilities claims are processed each year.
There are 50 million dollars on a Ponzi scheme. That is right, Ponzi scheme. The
retiree's are paid by future laborers. So why is the United States going broke,
Roe vs. Wade. And there can be no argument against it. If one of those babies had
worked, we wood have been in a much better situation.

Consider this. The national deficit is 7.1 trillion dollars. That is more money
per capita than most people work. Consider that America does not receive most of
the money it lends to other nations. We simply do not have the money to achieve
a debt free society.

Consider this fact: outsourcing is bad for business. What! Outsourcing is bad
for business. Simple logic prevails in this argument, where is all the laid off
workers going to get the money to buy your products!

Consider the fact that the First World is the US and it's allies, the second world was the Soviet Union and it's allies, the Third World was countries not associated with either.

Although it has become a colloquialism meaning under developed countries in general, that even doesn't apply because under developed refers to the usual lack of sea trade and proper ports, insufficiant roads, poor to little electrical, phone, and water/sewage systems to name a few.

Aside from the traffic jams near major cities, I find nothing to compair ourselves to a Third World Country. I don't even care that we owe great sums of money. The world owes us grand sums of money back, which creates political influence.

I wouldn't worry too much about it.
