Must Our Children Die For Pancakes?

Relative to just a few years ago....America produces very little now.

Construction, Autos, Real Estate, ect.....production has collapsed in America BUT FOR President Obama and other politicians borrowing $2 Trillion dollars per year and handing it to NON PRODUCING PEOPLE such as the retired, unemployed, food stamp recipients, and welfare recipients consuming massive amounts.  iT IS THE GOVT SUBIDIZED CONSUMPTION THAT IS DRIVING PRODUCTION TODAY.

You wonder if America can borrow $2 trillion dollars to hand it to its poor....why can't other nations?  Why do we even have poverty in the first place?

For a few years Alstry documented with long lists production shutting down in America....day after day, week after week, month after month.  You KNEW it would happen once the bankers cut off credit to the private economy.

Now the whole Southeastern portion of America is about to shut down, the rust belt has already come to a grinding halt absent government subsidies.  More and more of America is becoming like Detroit everyday........

YET WE CONTINUE TO CONSUME AT THE SAME LEVELS WE DID A FEW YEARS AGO THANKS TO GOVERNMENT PRINTING MONEY AND HANDING IT OUT TO NON PRODUCING PEOPLE.....

This can only go on for so long before the producers say....what is America's money backed by if the nation can't even produce enough to support its government?  As production collapses, the prices will skyrocket and many producers will stop accepting money in exchange for goods and services....

At that point, our government will face a very difficult choice.....it has made 2/3 of the nation dependent on the govenrnment's money to consume.....and if that money can't buy much.....the government will be facing a very angry population.

Government KNOWS that the money soon will be worthless if it keeps printing and handing it out non producing people.......TIME IS RUNNING OUT AS PRODUCTION COLLAPSES......

Government must make one of two very difficult decisions.....stop handing money out to non producers and watch its domestic economy collapse and face a very angry domestic population as tens of millions go hungry....or try to convince producers to accept our money ....and if they don't....use force.....lots of force......just like we did in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The latter is much easier.... all we have to tell the people is that the world wants to take away our freedom to consume so please volunteer your time so we can force our freedom upon them.........

So which is it....do we want the freedom to eat lots of pancakes even though we don't produce enough to support anywhere close to our current pancake consumption......or are we willing to restructure, bankrupt the nation, and build the foundation for a much stronger future?

MY GUESS IS A LOT OF CHILDREN ARE ABOUT TO DIE........SIMPLY BECAUSE TOO MANY COULDN'T STOP CONSUMING EVEN THOUGH WE WEREN'T PRODUCING.......

Thou shalt not steal........AND HISTORY HAS ALWAYS PUNISHED THE THIEF IN THE END.......

You are only thinking about tangible stuff, alstry.  What about the intangibles?  Here are just a few of many things we export or might export in the near future...

More efficient ways to farm.

More efficient ways to communicate.

More efficient ways to produce power.

More efficient ways to travel.

More efficient ways to cook pancakes.

More efficient ways to kill at war.

Yes...but the way we measure production is collapsing....money.

Salaries crashing and tax receipts collapsing.........

As soon as we start using something else to keep score....the game will be different....and not the world as we know it.

I get to see first hand the frightnening number of food stamp customers that come through my place of employment. Tonight alone I can easily say that more than 55-60% of all the paying customers were using goverment issued food stamp cards. I mean, why work day to day when you can watch your judge shows in the morning, take 2-3 naps, and have a surf and turf dinner all on someone elses dime. I dont use food stamps, so I had a lunchable.

Wow, what an intellectually dishonest work. Lacks all critical thinking skills and dialectical construction for an argument. What of feeding children at schools and related expenses? Perhaps those on medicare shouldn't have meals in hospitals? Are there not exceptions to your rant which deserve thought?

 Where is the opposing idea in your writing? Can you cite a study?

Sorry, but this blog shows why most people cannot participate in a conversation or decision making process.
