But, regardless, I can say with certainty they are leading us in a direction that will turn us into what I call, The Neo Third World.
First, let me explain, making predictions is a very easy thing to do. Provided we continue as we are, all we have to do is take fairly recent history, draw a line from it through the present and into the future and there you have It, simple as can be.
Here is how it works: The multi nationals began shipping jobs overseas that, at first, had no devastating effect on our people. As time passed, the shipping out of jobs into low wage countries is amplified. The next step was to create a recession while making sure their people are not hurt by it but instead experience great gains from it. The Bush bailout of the greedy bankers saw to that and is continued by the Obama administration. The momentum is so great the democrats can’t stop it … if they want to.
In that atmosphere, as unemployment benefits dry up, savings are spent, credit cards are maxed out and the mortgage is way over due and low paying jobs become the only way for most to keep their heads above water. In fact, we become endentured slaves to the debt. As the recession progresses we hear politicians and wannabes get all in a huff about why we resist taking low wage jobs. They say we must learn to compete with China, and other low wage countries. In the meantime, the Financials are doing great and the million dollar plus bonuses continue to be paid on our backs. Do we really want to get down to China’s level of slave labor?
This brings the time line to the present. Drawing the line into the future shows how we will eventually be The Neo Third World, with little or no middle class, a country of a few winners and lots of losers. Ergo, The Neo Third World is upon us. The America we loved and fought for is over. At near the age of 80, I’m sure to be dead before we get to that, though it’s not far away, and so will some of you. You have to ask yourselves, Are we the kind of people that will put up with such an outcome? If the answer is no, then we have to get off our asses and demand our elected public servants do what we want and not be forced through the power of bribes and other means of payoffs to become servants of the current ruling class, the Multinationals. It will take a concerted effort. The various groups that have you believe it’s your neighbors fault or it’s the Republicans or the Democrats fault have to realize we are all Americans and what we all want is not so different from our neighbor’s wishes. Stop listening to the talking heads that bring wealth to themselves by conning us. We are mostly all good guys and regardless of political leanings, this is still America and we are all Americans. Come together. Shy away from the “official reports” and such and get yourselves educated. One or two of us can’t make a difference against such great odds but even a seemingly small individual effort on the part of millions of Americans can change things an we will avert the coming Neo Third World status we are rushing towards.

I will have more to say on this.
