“The two great dividers are religion and language.” Kant
Thousands of people write me monthly after reading the plain, simple truth that I provide week in and week out, year in and year out as to our beloved country—The United States of America.
With our entire U.S. Congress garnering a 9 percent approval rating and our president running 54 percent disapproval—it doesn’t take a New York lawyer to figure out that most Americans are not happy with “hope and change” promised nearly four years ago. Congress remains hopelessly gridlocked and our president resembles a six foot tall man who can’t swim, but jumped into a 12 foot swimming pool with no lifeguards. Result: our country is drowning.
After nearly four years, we still run 14 million unemployed Americans and another 7 million underemployed. Our school systems suffer 7,000 high school drop outs every single day of the nine month school year. We suffer an ongoing death and financial spiral in Afghanistan with no end in sight. We run a $15 trillion national debt while the average credit card carries a $9,644.00 balance (debt) according to NBC anchor Brian Williams. The litany of ills grows daily.
“I am an 81 year old grandmother with an 80 year old husband who is still working 12 hours a day to take care of us. We have 10 and 14 year old grandsons. Surely if I can read the hand writing on the wall, those that are half my age should at least be able to do the same. God bless you for the truths you speak. Don’t ask me how, but God will find a way top honor you for your work.” Grandmother in Texas
This week, CBS’s anchor Scott Pelley reported on Scranton, Pennsylvania being flat broke. The town now pays its city workers, fire and police minimum wage of $7.25 an hour because the city is $16 million in debt. Scranton represents one of dozens of municipalities in financial hot water. Yet, Congress gives billions to other countries in foreign aid.
Los Angeles schools dismissed 4,000 teachers this year. Their classrooms skyrocketed from 28 kids to over 40 students per teacher. Educational chaos reigns. They run a $16 billion state deficit in California. Within 20 years, California schools dropped from the highest class system in America to the bottom five states in the nation.
Chicago schools, according to Mayor Rahm Emanuel, cut school days to five hours because they lack enough money to pay for teachers and staff. Last week, several little girls were shot and one died on the streets of Chicago as they sold lemonade. Street gangs rule! Emanuel said, “We can’t count on Washington DC because it is dysfunctional.”
ABC’s anchor Diane Sawyer reported on New York adding two to five million more residents in the coming decades. She said that 300 square foot apartments would be the norm of the future. A 300 square foot apartment equals the size of two car parking spaces. Humans in big cities will be living like bees in a hive.
Last week in Detroit, Michigan, Muslims threw stones, bottles and cans at Christians at a Muslim street festival.
Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of AFLC, and formerly counsel with the Thomas More Law Center of Ann Arbor Michigan, commented, "Whether you agree or disagree with the Christians' message, there is one issue to which there is no dispute: no citizen should be stoned in a city street in America for exercising his constitutional right to freedom of speech. And what makes this case so egregious is that law enforcement officers were present and made the conscious choice to allow the Muslim mob to silence the Christian speakers through violence. Indeed, the video of the incident looks like something you would see in the Middle East, not in the United States."
Through all those reports, none, I repeat, none of the big anchors said a word about what is causing these massive problems. None spoke a word about what we might do to change course. None of them interviewed “upstream” leaders as to how to prevent the problems by being proactive instead of reactive.
"Unlimited population growth cannot be sustained; you cannot sustain growth in the rates of consumption of resources. No species can overrun the carrying capacity of a finite land mass. This Law cannot be repealed and is not negotiable.” Dr. Albert Bartlett, www.albartlett.org , University of Colorado, USA.
The great writer Edward Abbey said, “Unending growth is the modus operandi of a cancer cell and we all know what happens to the host.”
Dear reader, every 30 days the U.S. Congress imports 100,000 foreign immigrants with green cards into the United States. This has been going on since 1965. They birth 900,000 children annually. Another 800,000 illegal migrants rush into our country because our employment laws are not enforced. That equals to 3.1 million annually added to our country—give or take a few thousand. (Sources: PEW Hispanic Center, “US Population Projections” Fogel/Martin, US Census Bureau) If not stopped, it will continue to “go on” until our country adds 100 million immigrants within the next 38 years. Such numbers cannot be sustained. Such numbers are and will destroy the American way of life. Such importation of religions, cultures and illiteracy are already manifesting in violence in the cities of America.
“Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.” Dr. Otis Graham, Unguarded Gates
In all the letters I receive, I encourage each writer to take action. You cannot cry or whine. You must engage your congress-critters. Go into their offices. Tell them what you want. This is a Republic and it is up to you to take action by voting the bad ones out and/or running for office yourself. The two top organizations for taking action and making impact are www.NumbersUSA.org and www.CapsWeb.org . Become a phone caller and faxer of pre written letters. It’s up to you.
As Thomas Jefferson once said, “We have the wolf by the ears and we can neither hold him or let him go.” I suggest we take destiny into our hands by taking action in the logical direction by stopping mass immigration and moving toward a stable population.
Because if you don’t, this is what your children face in an overwhelmed and overpopulated United States of America:
In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation. Take five minutes to see for yourself:

This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a word “Mind boggling!” www.NumbersUSA.org
