The Economic Crisis and the American Dream

The Economic Crisis and the American Dream

I do not know what is going on anymore.  I mean the reality we have to endure seems to be slipping in the cracks of the political intent.  I understand somewhat the intent of President Obama’s job bill, but will it fix anything or just allow us to travel down the road of disaster at a slower but steady pace?  We are on a road towards economic destruction and there may well be no turning back.

Are we about to repeat the same folly that caused the economic crisis in the first place or will we design a system of genuine change.  Is President Obama’s administration’s intelligence level over estimated? Is he really a very smart man or just another politician with smooth words and style.  If he is the intelligent man I came to believe he is, it is about time he showed me something.

President Obama needs to return to the grassroots that created him and come to the frontline and see real people in real time in real situations, then and only then will he get a grasp of reality about the economic situation Americans must endure.   He talks a good game, but I am sorry I am not feeling it.

You have to take it to the street Mr. President.   The American dream is dead.  The first law of nature is self preservation and people are starting to do whatever is necessary to survive.  Young parents are selling their body and souls to feed their children to people who have little more than them, meaning very cheap on the streets.  And if you go to a typical street corner 9 out of 10 of the people out there are selling drugs because they are starving.  So to eat they sell poison to their neighbors in the form of crack, dope and ecstasy.  As they themselves smoke marijuana to live with themselves.  That is reality!  The American Dream is Dead!

We no longer believe in the American dream, when the education of illiterate afghans supersede feeding Americans.  Are the afghans required to take drug tests or ship us heroin?  The American dream is dead Mr. President and reality is the matter of facts.  As we spend more money on the Pentagon to dominate militarily around the world, Americans are starving literally.  It isn’t right.

This jobs bill is a joke and will not be taken seriously in Washington.   Just because you can afford crack does not make it a good buy.  This is crack economics.  This is spending money simply to support a habit.  All it does is support a habit the government has called aimlessly spending and it is not a good idea, because it does not deal with any of the real issues that must be addressed.

People are afraid to invest their money because there is no foreseeable return on a new investment and those in business are simply trying not to lose it all and be forced to go out of business.  We need an incentive for investment at the small business level and not big corporate America.  I could create 10 jobs with under $50G.

There is no investment capital for the small businesses.  We at the NCNCHINC like many organizations are stalled due to no investment capital.  We have a building worth $125 that we cannot open due to a $10G roof, we have a restaurant we are welling to turn into a soup kitchen to feed the poor who are only getting poorer and cannot do it because we can not pass code inspections.  We cannot operate our businesses because of investment capital, because the banks are also holding on to their money.  So people who could invest are not because out of fear of losing their investment capital as well as the banks and this package does nothing to address these fears.

Fear has replaced the dream of America!  America does not need continued unemployment, we need jobs.  We do not need to just build infrastructure we need jobs.  What good is a new paved road and renovated schools when you cannot afford gas to drive your car or repairs to keep it on the road, while the mother of the children in schools gets sick from AIDS trying to make ends meet?  This is a joke and it is not funny at all!

The American Mentality needs an overhaul.  We legalize same sax marriage to prove what?  And in the name of Hollywood fixated love?  We are a sick nation about to fall.  We have oppressive drug laws for what, to punish?  Don’t tell me it is about the security of American Society, because it is another Hollywood lie.  Mr. President we are dying due to our sick mindset as a nation.

Unemployment benefits cannot fix this, it will only prolong the agony.   While you give me $200 you give a singer, baseball player and actor billions to fool us into believing in a lie called the American dream?    Children do not want to go to school they want to be baseball players and entertainers not because of reality but because it is the dream, they were sold and that is your problem.  They want to be drug dealers because they heard of Frank Lucas and saw American Gangster in the movies.  As Hollywood glorifies sicknesses and you allow it. It is so bad now that even the news is nothing more than entertainment and half lies and you wonder why this nation is about to be destroyed?

Mr. President and the United States Congress, please address the real issues, which will require many bills being passed from regulating Hollywood for the security of our nation, to putting money in the hands of small businesses to creating new laws and ordinances to allow businesses to operate. And please stop playing games.
