Yes, folks, it all goes together...
Millions (the government says 11 Million, I'd lean more towards 20 Million) of Mexicans illegally broke into the United States over the past decade. Invaded us. Broke our laws. Cheated the system. Jumped the line. Call it what you will, and I'll call it what it is - an illegal invasion.
It is not racist to call Mexicans "Mexicans". Just like calling Russians "Russians". Get over it, and get over your PC-self on this one.
These gate-crashers stormed America and stole the jobs of legal Americans. So at the same time we were losing our manufacturing base to China, we lost millions of other jobs to illegal Mexicans at home and had our wages surpressed by a new, ready-made and illegal labor force.
Do I blame the Mexican people? No. If I lived in Mexico and job prospects were bleak, I couldn't feed my family, and there was a way to make a better living by simply walking across the border, I'd have to think about it. Illegal or not. People are going to do what they need to do to better themselves and take care of their families.
So I simply blame the US and Mexican governments and the businesses that knowingly hired them.
The Democrats want votes (and millions of birthright US citizen Mexican babies born on US soil), as they were out of power and desperate.
The Republicans were doing what they do best - helping American businesses lower costs and increase profits. A wave of slave labor who'd work for peanuts vs. legal Americans was too good to pass up for the GOP and their business buddies.
And now the Dems and GOP are even thinking of offering the illegals amnesty. Now there's a terrible idea.
Then of course, there's the corrupt Mexican government. They love the billions and billions of US$ being sent back to Mexico.
And you know who LOVED this illegal invasion of the US? You got it - the REIC. The housing bubble demand for new houses required significant new labor - roofers, fencers, painters, framers, etc. It's estimated 30% of all construction jobs have now gone to Latinos.
To earn those massive bonuses, the REIC CEOs also needed to lower their costs at the same time their profit margins were exploding due to irrational pricing. The key was hiring cheap illegal Mexican workers to replace the fairly paid American workers.
Well, everything was great for awhile - for the Mexicans, for the Democrats, for the GOP and for the REIC.
And then the bubble burst.
So now what do we have? Well, for starters, we've got 20 Million Mexicans stuck here in the US and many of them now without jobs. We've got hundreds of thousands of new Mexican US citizen birthright babies with illegal and unemployed parents. We've got millions of Americans who've lost their jobs to illegal Mexicans, and we've got a declining US wage due to the millions of illegals in the US who'll work for cheap.
What we'll have next is an exploding crime and unemployment rate, soaring costs for supporting the illegals and their babies, and some serious moral issues of what to do with the illegals we no longer need now that the REIC jobs are going away.
You thought the illegals were pissed this summer when they were out protesting in the streets? Well, just wait, because now they're unemployed, hungry and even more pissed. And to add insult to injury, some of them even bought homes at the peak using toxic mortgages and are well on their way to defaulting and running.
Now that's squaring the circle, wouldn't you say?
