Part 4: Congress needs to implement solutions, not squabble.
In Part 4 of this series, let’s deal with the nitty-gritty problems causing our society environmental, governmental and financial breakdown. Let’s move with common sense to solve our problems.
Dealing with Our Challenges with Solutions
Today in America, we see 90,000 homeless in Los Angeles, 11,000 in San Francisco, 10,000 homeless in Denver and, as reported in “Homeless in America”, about 554,000 homeless Americans on any given night in any given city. I actually witnessed those numbers on my bicycle trip through San Francisco and Los Angeles this past summer. I live in Denver, so I see the 10,000 on our city streets weekly. I snapped a lot of pictures of Americans down, totally out and completely destroyed lives.
Yet, we paid $6 trillion in two wars over 18 years that accomplished nothing—and they’re still continuing because Congress funds them. You must know that the Military Industrial Complex power-brokers keep a lot of those 535 Congressional critters in their bank account.
Why not take financial steps like $6 trillion and invest in America’s poor, homeless and illiterate?
How about building apartment buildings in LA, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco with that $6 trillion to house our homeless, give them some dignity and medical-counseling-job training help? Give them some semblance of dignity to live their lives, and the potential to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps?
End the 50,000 Annual Visa Lottery System
Each year, Congress imports 50,000 people from the bushlands of Africa with no education, skills or abilities to contribute to America. They all subsist on your tax dollars. They create parallel societies distinct and separate from America. They create havoc in such cities as Lewiston, Maine; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Los Angles, California; Detroit, Michigan; Miami, Florida and many more.
Those immigrants call their free ride, “the Golden Ticket.” It allows them a free life on your back.
We need to stop all visa lottery free rides into our country. It’s not fair to you, nor me or any American tax payer. And, it’s creating conflict beyond our solving as they arrive with incompatible religions, cultures and languages.
Black Americans in Distress
Annually, 7 out of 10 black babies in America enter this world without a father. The mother births them, rears them and lives on welfare or at the lowest rung of the economic ladder. The African-American family no longer supports discipline, education or personal accountability. The crime rates in Chicago and other black inner cities—scream off the charts with murders, violence, shoplifting, rapes, failing schools, illiteracy and hopelessness. This phenomenon destroyed the once vibrant Detroit, Michigan.
How about advancing solutions such as all male and all female schools or orphanages where the kids obtain discipline, educational excellence and identity? How about mandatory parental education for mothers to rear their children wholesomely and fully—to go along with their welfare checks and food stamps? How about paying Big Brother programs to mentor those boys and girls?
Let’s create a national convention of black leaders that come up with ideas and solutions to bring the American Black Family back into a positive future for all African-American children. They deserve it and we need to provide them a chance to thrive in America.
We need to create redundant jobs for uneducated blacks-whites-Hispanics that fit their educational levels. With living wages to give them dignity in their lives!
We face 13,000,000 (million) children living in poverty in America. One in six children lives with food insecurity. Millions visit food banks weekly for their sustenance. Poor white, black and Hispanics need jobs, training, housing and dignified lives. Instead of wars, let’s assist our own citizens of every ethnic group.
Term Limits for Congress and All Politicians
The level of corruption in Congress supersedes anyone’s comprehension. It created “career corrupt criminal politicians.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues at 38 years in the House. U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer hit 34 years of his senate career. Both do very little to solve and have not solved any of the problems noted within this four-part series.
Maxine Waters of the House along with John Lewis completely, after nearly 40 years, have done nothing of note to advance or aid their black constituents.
We need term limits of a maximum of 10 years for all senators and House members. That would engender good experience, and then, out the door for fresh ideas, fresh minds and fresh solutions—of new senators and House members.
The Uselessness of the United Nations
The United Nations housed in the United States, must be the most worthless body of men and women in the world. Their members vote against the United States virtually all the time. Their members live the high life while their countries live in utter despair and poverty.
It’s time to kick the UN out of the USA and take the USA out of the UN. Let them figure out how to ‘run’ the world without our money. Name one thing the UN has accomplished in the past 50 years. Answer: nothing of note.
The Fraud of Earned Income Tax Credit for Illegal Aliens
If you visit my Facebook page, Frosty Wooldridge, you will see where one illegal alien claimed four adults lived in his trailer in a live interview. Also, he claimed 20 children lived with him. In fact, only one child and no adults lived in that trailer with him. Yet, the U.S. Government sends him $29,608.00 annually. He said, “Well, they offered it, so why shouldn’t I take advantage of it.”
That’s your money times millions of illegal aliens defrauding, lying and scamming the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Whether you like it or not, you lose and then, your family loses horrific amounts of money via fraud of illegal aliens.
And, you pay for their in excess of 2,000,000 (million) illegal alien children at $8,000.00 annually K-12, $2,000 per child for ESL courses, and $5,000.00 for breakfasts and lunches. We really need to deport illegals and their families out of our country. Just enforce our laws that take away their jobs from illegal American employers.
The Wall and What It Can Do
Annually, Mexicans smuggle $69,000,000,000.00 (billion) of drugs into our country. Those drugs addict and destroy entire families as well as the addicted individuals. They bring drugs through vehicles at check points, and across the desert via mules who carry drugs to pick up points.
We need a wall or 10,000 more border patrol agents, or drones, or conning towers, or cameras to stop it. Whatever the cost of a wall or drones or cameras—that would be much cheaper than giving away $69 billion annually to destroy our own citizens’ lives.
A National Committee of Our Best, Brightest and Smartest
Our country stands eye-ball deep in trouble on multiple fronts. We’re being invaded by endless legal and illegal immigration. We’re $21 trillion in national debt. We’ve got racial issues beyond repair. We keep pumping incompatible cultures and religions into the heart of our nation. We invite terrorists to create organizations that intend to defeat us. Such as CAIR, a terrorist organization within the USA:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” Omar Ahmed, director of Council on American Islamic Relations.
Let us create a national committee of our best and brightest minds in education, economics, race relations and environment, trade and other realms—to come together in a “master mind creative group” to come up the problems, define them, and then, offer solutions.
Okay, I’ve touched on a few problems, and you could name another 50 facing our country.
The worst decision is to think that you can do so little that you do nothing at all.
