What you are about to read, is going to be disturbing. But, it is what I believe to be the truth.
Science agrees that for every action there is a reaction. And not to understand or to close our eyes to social and political reaction that seems to me, to be all but inevitable, is an extraordinarily sorry exercise in denial.
In North America, certainly in the last few generations, labor violence has been a one-way street, more or less sanctioned by MOST governments.
Organized Labor with the full support of the LEFT has led noisy, disruptive, intimidating, and very often-violent demonstrations without resistance from the other side.
Labor GOONS are very rarely if ever punished for their hooliganism.
For generations, organized Labor has had it all their own way; and what they demanded they got. But, NEVER more-so than in the Public Sector, where Public Sector salaries in comparison to the Private Sector are obscenely out of whack, as are the Public Sector’s EXTREME perks and pensions.
No one whom I know in the Private Sector is GUARANTEED a job for life, as are so many Public Sector workers, but, none more-so than teachers who cannot be fired or even laid-off because of TENURE.
YOU PAY THEIR SALARIES! So what do you think?
1 – Do you have a job or business GUARANTEED for LIFE?
2 – Are you earning as much as 30%-50% MORE than the national average for what you do?
3 – Do you enjoy mandated PAID days off and BANKABLE sick days?
4 – Like teachers . . . does a “FULL YEAR’” of your work equal eight and a half months?
4 – Will you retire with MORE pension money than most working families earn in salaries?
THE NEW CIVIL WAR IS SOON UPON US:
I repeatedly wrote that Obama will divide America unlike anything since the Civil War. And I didn’t write those words just for effect. And much sooner, rather than later, what we are seeing on the streets of Greece and the Middle East will be playing out on streets where we live.
Because of HORRIBLE fiscal and social mismanagement going all the way back to post WWII years to Jimmy Carter, with the only break coming from Ronald Reagan, it is now about to hit the fan.
We’ve allowed, excuse me . . . We’ve ENCOURAGED politicians to buy our votes with our own money with promises of Something-For-Nothing.
We’ve ENCOURAGED our politicians to allow Organized Labor to abuse the providers of jobs, to the point where the company owners moved-out or simply shut down.
SO YOU TELL ME – With the exception of a handful of products, what can we buy in our countries that are made in the USA or Canada?
When we dial most customer service lines, how many ring in North America compared to India?
When I hear Obama and the LEFT talk about creating and saving jobs, it isn’t in the Private Sector. The jobs they are either creating or saving are Public Sector jobs, which contribute NOTHING to the economy.
In TRUTH, what these jobs create, are nothing short of additional debt and long-term liabilities.
WE HAVE REACHED THE END OF THE ROAD:
Because of HORRIFIC government mismanagement, there are no real prospects TO CREATE REAL JOBS IN NORTH AMERICA.
So, as more and more people look for work that isn’t there, who will support and feed them and their families? Who will make their car payments, their mortgage or rent payments and all the other payments normal folk have to meet?
As people consume less because they simply don’t have the money, and have maxed-out their credit, and governments tax businesses more, how long before the CLOSED SIGNS, or the bankruptcy notices on the shop windows become as prominent as the “GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE” signs?
George W Bush BEGGED Congress to develop as much DOMESTIC oil and gas resources as possible – To no avail.
The LEFT told Bush that it will take up to TEN YEARS for American oil and gas to come online from new development, SO FORGET ABOUT IT. Well, it’s now MORE than 10 years and America is once again HOSTAGE to OPEC and world events beyond America’s control.
So, when we go to the pumps to fill-up, and the cost is over $3.50 per gallon US and climbing, and OVER $5.50 per gallon in Canada and climbing, where are we going to get that extra money to pay for all the other things we need and do, when so much more of our money is going for fuel to travel and heat our homes?
I’ve heard only one Oil Executive say that the energy crunch that is coming our way is going to make the 1970’s Oil Crisis look like a walk in the park. AND I BELIEVE HIM.
How are we going to pay for the ever-growing costs of food at grocery stores and at restaurants, if what we are taking home after taxes is less today than yesterday; that is if we are lucky enough to even have a job?
We’ve ENCOURAGED the government to intrude into our private lives. We never said no to them telling us how to live, what to eat, and how to raise our own children.
We listen to the First Lady (Obama) tell the PEOPLE what they should or should not eat themselves and feed their children because of obesity. And we say nothing in return.
How about the people SHOUTING to Queen Obama to mind her own damned business, and ask her if she’s had the chance to take a look at her own ample ass in the mirror before she tells everyone else how to eat?
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE:
We no longer want the government spending OUR money to tell us how to live.
The REAL WORKING PEOPLE have had enough. Those who want jobs and can’t get jobs have run out of patience, especially those who can no longer collect unemployment benefits.
The small to medium size company owners are at the end of their road. Not only are they NOT hiring, they are praying to hold onto what they have.
People with Private Sector Jobs are tapped-out. And after paying their taxes to support a bloated arrogant Public System, there’s literally nothing left in the cookie jar for themselves.
So, how long do you think this will continue when the PRIVATE SECTOR watches the OBSCENELY BLOATED Public Sector take to the streets protesting against the people who pay their way?
How long do you think it will take the WORKING FOLK to say ENOUGH is ENOUGH and begin to pushback?
NOT LONG I ASSURE YOU.
When we see State Legislators run away and hide in neighboring States to avoid doing their job – NOTHING ELSE HAS TO BE SAID.
Anyone who thinks that the demonstrations and the violence we have all seen on the streets from Cairo to Athens cannot come to a street near you, is thinking in Technicolor ‘cause it’s on the way.
It doesn’t matter what the compliant media reports, or the government wants you to believe, since Washington and Ottawa are no different, and in their own way, are as dishonest as was Baghdad Bob who told the world that the Americans were being slaughtered at Baghdad Airport, as the American tanks and troops were rolling past his studio unopposed during the outset of Desert Storm (1991).
To quote from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “Beware The Ides Of March”, for they are indeed soon to be upon all of us.
