The Sport of Politics
What politics has become is a great Red Sox vs. Yankees. My team won and your team lost. What people don’t seem to understand is that your team influences the lives of millions of people for good or bad. If your team is rotten it can ultimately destroy the country. Case in point, children should not be taught sex, period. Children are innocent and by defiling them with every type of sex known to mankind destroys the next generation. If God (yes, God) wanted children to be little horndogs at the age of 8 or 9, then he wouldn’t have created them so innocent. Sexual education accomplishes only one thing and that is to warp the hearer.
Next high taxes. The government confiscates around 5 trillion dollars from Americans each year. Even though we are 32 trillion dollars in debt and what they don’t have they just print, which makes me wonder why we pay taxes at all? Just print it, add it to the 32 trillion that you’ve already printed.
But what happens when you raise taxes? You begin to squeeze families. There’s a pressure put on the family budget and who suffers? The kids. Why? Because when you cut back it’s not going to be food, or heat or the mortgage. It’s going to be dance class, Kung Fu classes, after school sports, “trickle down poverty.” But, hey, your team won. Yay.
As this policy continues people who were inclined to have a large family stop at one or two which is an attack on the family and society as a whole. The birth rate in America is 1.66. This isn’t enough to maintain the USA as a country. But, hey, your team won.
Next, America needs gas. Without gas and plentiful electricity we grind to a halt. How does a present day high school graduate who actually wants to work and can do simple math find a good factory job? You know, like Goodyear or a textile mill? I guess they’ll have to move to China or Mexico if they’re hoping to work at either of those places because they’re no longer in New Bedford. You can thank the Marxist unions for that, at some point a business owner has to make a profit. They’re not an extended welfare program for the government. That’s why it’s so obnoxious when government tells business owners what they have to pay their employees, you know the minimum wage which is $15/hour though most business owners say they can’t afford it.
So McDonald’s is designing robots that cook hamburgers and fries, and a kiosk to order your food. Target is working on stores that are 100% robotics, and don’t forget the self checkout at Stop & Shop. All jobs done by people now being replaced by robotics.
I’ve actually heard that upwards of 50% of all jobs will be done by robots or AI, humans need not apply. If a business owner could pay their employees what they’re worth and not what the government dictates to them, then most of this would be unnecessary.
But coming back to America’s need for gas and electricity. When a company considers opening a factory in the USA the number 1 consideration is, can I make a profit here? High gas — transport, shipping/receiving costs and what it’s going to cost to keep the light on and the machines running. One example: Germany’s electricity is four times the cost of America’s, so most of their manufacturing is done in South Carolina because it’s cheaper to produce a product and they have a very skilled work force. When you continue to attack that which are the essential elements of the economy thus destroying a man’s ability to have children and to be able to support them, with all this green nonsense then I would have to say that your team sucks.
Finally, your team might have won but they’re not playing for team America. All of these policies are detrimental to the working men and women of America. Sooner or later your team is going to affect you or your wife or your children and then you’ll see that you’ve been duped. We need that which benefits our country, not China or Mexico.
