Elysium is what I think it will look like unless we take back control now.
Please America, pretty please..........wake the F up.
All these things which go wrong in the world is because of automation. Forget illegal immigrants taking over the country, forget the Middle East and oil, forget everything and start learn how to program or study medicine/care because you and I might see the day almost all jobs get replaced.
Whether it'll be paradise for everyone or just those who can afford it we'll have to wait and see.

The only thing that is obvious is that you called the thread author a lazy ,ignorant racist that must watch Fox News.
Sticks and stones budy.
Common sense must be a Hoosier thing I guess.
Then why aren't you showing some common sense then? Illegal immigrants do not lower wages. The money grubbers that choose to hire them over citizens are the ones that lower wages. Yes liberals changed the rules for bank loans but it was the banks that created the toxic derivatives that led to the crash. And who had the bright idea to bail out the banks? Little Bush and his cronies.
Actually bush warned us about the housing collapse several times before it happened.
He also had a split house and senate, not in his control. They failed to heed his warnings.

Are you familiar with Agenda 21 ? Where by Private Property will be outlawed . And many of the things we call necessary will be done away with including us!
Blackstone Group appears to be trying to oligopolize the business of renting single-family homes in the U.S.. As Bloomberg reports, after the housing crash left more than 7 million foreclosed homes in its wake, the investment firm has spent more than $7.8 billion purchasing about 41,000 single-family homes for rental conversion. The world's largest private equity firm has quickly become the largest landlord (of rental homes) in the U.S. and in October, Blackstone offered the first-ever "rental-home-backed" security on Wall Street. One has to wonder if this was the plan all along?
Wage Deflation and Expensive Housing out of the reach of most American's will allow them to corral the lower earners into shared housing, especially into the bigger cities.
That is already happening.
family oriented types. Basically all around good folks in general. They do have their bad apples,
