WHAT AMERICANS DON'T CARE ABOUT: DETAILS CAN KILL YOU

Part 2: What most of our leaders and Americans fail to consider
When any living entity grows too big, it malfunctions in various ways outwardly and inwardly. For example, have you watched the “Biggest Loser” television program? When those horribly obese individuals walk up to the weighing station wearing nothing but bathing suits, each of them carries a story, enormous physical pain, emotional chaos and mental insecurity.
They’re hurting in ways few can imagine, unless you are one of them, then, you know their pain, frustration and sense of hopelessness.
How did they become 250-300 pounds overweight? How could they become so careless, so unaware, so completely out of control of their own health, wellness and destiny? How could they avoid their growing girth, high blood pressure, diabetes, bulging ankles and inability to climb stairs or walk down the block? How could 2/3 of our country resemble the annual photographic celebration of “Wal-Marts” shoppers on review?
Let’s apply the metaphor of that TV show to our own country.
As our nation continues to explode via “exponential growth” brought about by our own choices or, more to the point, by our elected leaders. What were they thinking? How did we become a dysfunctional civilization? How did we come to let a tiny, financially charged power-elite—drive our country into senseless wars, into adding millions of people from outside our country, into destroying our environment and quality of life? Yet, we bought into it with our apathy.
Why did we sit by and watch it happen? Why do we continue watching it accelerate?
Today, we fail to pay attention to the little things destroying our country’s ability to maintain stability for our citizens.
We “pay” unmarried women to produce as many babies as they want and “steal” our tax dollars for their lack of personal accountability and personal responsibility. They live off EBT cards, welfare, housing and medical care—but pay nothing into the system. They create millions more of themselves in a vicious cycle of entitlement and dependency.
Yet, with 68 percent of African-American children being brought up by single mothers on welfare, we avoid the discussion at how “fat” our country becomes as to loss of citizen participation and responsibility. Much of the same percentages occur with Mexican-immigrant “anchor babies” to the tune of 400,000 annually who illegally walk into our country, birth their child and all of us pay for that child from 1 to 18 and beyond.
Not one politician steps up to correct that problem. Not one of your U.S. senators stands up with a plan. In fact, they voted to continue such absurd practices.
Right now, we face Peak Oil and the lack of gasoline to sustain our country within three decades or sooner. Does Congress present any kind of a plan that will feed 438 million people by 2050 when gasoline runs out? Not a single plan! Or, any proposal to stop our carbon exhaust from cooking up the planet?
We see 1 out of 6 kinds hungry in this country and endless millions eating “free” breakfasts and lunches—but our U.S. Congress pumps 100,000 legal immigrants into our country every 30 days. In other words, like the “Biggest Losers”, just keep shoving gallons of ice cream down their throats to add more weight instead of solving their problems. (Source: www.feedingAmerica.org “Feeding America is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks and the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Together, we provide food to more than 37 million people through 61,000 food pantries, community kitchens, and emergency shelters across America.” )
Our educational systems flounder with millions of kids hitting our streets with dysfunctional illiteracy every June, and with no jobs to work those kids. And, no plan to train them or, they offer such illiteracy, they cannot be trained!
Other things we don’t think about:
We stand $18 trillion in debt and it’s going to crash on our heads one of these days. President John Adams said, “There are two ways to destroy a country: by the sword or by debt.”
The average American suffers a $15,192 credit card debt. (Source: www.nerdwallet.com)
One out of every five Americans works for the federal government, which means, they do virtually nothing; they don’t make goods, perform services nor do they do work that produces anything.
Social Security now functions as a welfare state for millions who lack any ability to work at any age.
We give billions in foreign aid when our own citizens cannot find work or feed themselves. We borrow billions from China to float our “vacant” economy. That’s while we buy their “cheap” products that over 14 million unemployed Americans can only buy with a welfare check because they cannot find a job.
As the kid who shot up classmates in Santa Barbara, California this past weekend attests, we lack millions of mothers or fathers staying home to raise their kids with balance, values and respect for themselves and others.
Over eight million dogs and cats must be “put down” every year because Americans won’t neuter and spay their pets.
Our continued irresponsible wastefulness exceeds any limits known to humanity as 70 percent of Americans fail to recycle anything.
We keep making eight cylinder cars when everyone should be driving a four-cylinder car to save gas and reduce the carbon footprint.
We allow our country to be overtaken by an entirely different culture or cultures rather than maintain our own, which, by the way, once led the world in excellence.
I am not optimistic as to our downward decline via loss of culture, language and national cohesion. The more people we import, and we expect to add 100 million immigrants within 36 years, we face “gross population obesity” that cannot be changed once we hit 438 million within 36 years.
Again, what can you do?
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 overpopulation. Take five minutes to see for yourself:
