SETTING THE STAGE FOR AMERICA'S DEGRADED FUTURE
December 13, 2010
Nobody wants to talk about how America faces ‘standard of living’ and ‘quality of life’ degradation within two decades. I cannot begin to understand the grandest taboo of all. When I do mention it, even Americans argue with me—in light of observable realities. They fail to understand the ‘exponential equation’ of endless growth.
By writing about severe consequences heading, like an Immigration Katrina, toward not just New Orleans five years ago, but every state in America—readers chastise me, and fellow writers, by the way! They feel my columns’ themes do not apply to them or wouldn’t happen to them. They are correct—it won’t happen to them—it will happen to their children.
If our nation continues thinking like the people of New Orleans—that it won’t happen to them—think again. Look at millions living in the earthquake arena of California. It is not a question of if, but when the 9.5 scale quake hits. New Orleans was not a question of if, but when. Same goes for those living in Florida’s hurricane alley. If you travel west, you see people building homes on the cliffs of California when contractors told them that rains would cause slides. They built anyway and look what happened the last two years during the rainy season. What about those building in fire areas of California? Did you not see their homes burn in the past two years?
What I seek to convey to the American public stems from my bicycle travels on six continents and through the most densely populated countries of the world. I’ve seen the misery, suffering, debasement of human living conditions and I’ve witnessed that once human numbers exceed carrying capacity, all life suffers. Examine China, India, Africa and Bangladesh for starters. They grow worse by the day. They can’t solve their problems once manifested.
Within a scant twenty-five years, through endless and relentless immigration, projections show the United States adding 70 million third world immigrants and their children. They race to America to escape their plights in their own countries, but their leaders NEVER solve the problems in their own civilizations. The third world adds a net gain of 80 million humans annually that it cannot water, feed or shelter. Another 1 billion humans every 13 years! Haiti provides a perfect example even before the earthquake.
One simple video by Roy Beck graphically shows you exactly what I am talking about: In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of immigration on the USA. Take five minutes to see for yourself.
Several readers ask if I follow Thomas Malthus’ “Essay on the Principle of Population,” or, they don’t agree with me based on the size of the United States. Folks! It’s not about size! It’s about carrying capacity! Many who pursue a religious course say, “God will provide.” What they neglect to realize is, according to the March 14, 2005, issue of Time Magazine, 18 million people starve to death around the planet annually. Therefore, it is not an issue of Malthus or God; the issue concerns a growing reality that humanity outstrips the planet’s ability to feed, water and clothe the growing ‘human storm’ on this planet.
Anyone can live in denial all they want, but like Hurricane Katrina, reality will strike when the storm hits. In other words, those that scoff at me can sit back just like five days before Katrina hit, and drink coffee on the back porch. But when it hits and you didn’t evacuate, you become one of the victims. And, as Time and Newsweek graphically reported, our children. We failed the most innocent of all by our lack of action.
Today, like a nation of fools, we add 3.1 million immigrants annually. (Source: www.cis.org Dr. Steven Camarata) But we lack any kind of plan as to what we will do when those immigrants overload our entire civilization with poverty, entrenched illiteracy and endless growth.
When I talk about the crisis of immigration, plenty of already manifested realities sober any rational mind. The quality of our lives deteriorates daily as we add 3.1 million people annually to our shores. The standard of living drops like a brick with millions of added people, i.e., 15 million unemployed Americans and 41.8 million subsisting on food stamps. But let me quote those who know more and are the leaders from the past and present.
“We must prevent human tragedy rather than run around trying to save ourselves after an event has already occurred. Unfortunately, history clearly shows that we arrive at catastrophe by failing to meet the situation, by failing to act when we should have acted. The opportunity passes us by and the next disaster is always more difficult and compounded than the last one.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor stands right on the money and we will pay the consequences for such observable incompetence as Obama muddles through his last two years. When it comes to the immigration invasion of three million people crashing onto our shores annually, Obama doesn’t have a clue as to the critical impact and danger to future generations due to sheer numbers. He resembles a blind watchmaker.
So what do other brighter minds say about the worsening crisis of immigration in America?
“Immigration of the kind and on the scale America has had for the last three decades is in effect, a recipe for cultural suicide and squandering of a rich national heritage.” Dr. Lee Marland
Look at that quote and tell me you don’t feel it in your community with all the illegal aliens and non absorbing legal immigrants who can’t and won’t speak English, but use and abuse our system for their own purposes. Tell me you think our country can continue, with dozens of other languages and Stone Age cultures that don’t assimilate into what is America as a first world country.
“The two-generation indirect immigration, i.e., including the births to foreign-born mothers, explained the incredible 98 percent of California’s growth between 1990 and 2000.” Dr. Leon Bouvier. California adds a mind-numbing 1,700 people net gain DAILY! (Source: www.CapsWeb.org)
Anyone want to move to the beautiful Los Angeles area anytime soon? I would need my head examined if I wanted to move into that grinding traffic, three million illegal aliens and nine million legal immigrant quagmire. Immigration provoked growth from 17 million in 1965 to over 38 million today. They suffer gridlock, air pollution, crime, disease, mountains of trash, Mexico’s slums and a non English speaking populace, which is more anti-American than Castro.
As you read this column, are the lights turning on? Are you connecting the dots? Do you see the growing calamity about to visit, possibly not you, but definitely your children here in the once limitless USA? Exploding gas prices present harbingers of our future. Air pollution grows thicker with every added person. Farmland diminishes as asphalt and concrete cover it. I spent the summer bicycling 4,000 miles across the USA to see it first hand. Gas costs $3.00 a gallon.
If you think the gridlock, air pollution, acid rain, diminishing cropland, congestion, failing health systems, global warming, species extinction is bad now, you ain’t seen nothing yet! In other words, “Immigration Katrina” will hit all 50 states in 2035. But even before that date, it will degrade all our lives with too many people, shrinking freedoms, diminished resources, water wars, diseases, maddening traffic and worsening air pollution.

The more extreme our numbers, the more extreme our children’s consequences. Unless, of course, you decide to get involved in your children’s future.
