AMERICANS NEED TO DROP DOWN TO THE POVERTY LEVELS OF THE THIRD WORLD
By Frosty Wooldridge
October 28, 2010
After I wrote a piece chastising outsourcing to foreign countries and America’s immigration predicament as it absorbs 3.1 million from around the world annually, a man from Madrass, India wrote back, “Mr. Wooldridge, you may be angry at us in India because of the H-1B, H-2B and L-1 Visas, as well as the outsourcing of jobs to my country…but we can make better products and do the job much cheaper than you Americans…besides you have been living an artificially high standard of living for decades; it’s about time you drop down to the poverty levels of the third world; immigration will do that to your country.”
And sure enough, it is doing just that with 15 million unemployed Americans and 41.8 million of us subsisting on food stamps! Thanks to our presidents and Congresses for the past 30 years for destroying manufacturing in the United States! A friend named Les at my recreation center said yesterday, “It’s not complicated! You take jobs away from Americans by outsourcing, insourcing and offshoring—and you’ve got nobody to buy the goods. Bet Congress never thought about that!”
Yesterday, I received by latest copy of Time Magazine where an immigrant named Fareed Zakaria, from India, now a naturalized citizen, wrote a piece about “Restoring the American Dream.”
Zakaria, not an American by birth and didn’t grow up here, somehow enjoys ‘affirmative action’ at Time Magazine to allow him a treatise on our country from his Indian bias. I wrote a rebuttal and added a bit of a reality check. I’m asking you to write one into Time, too, after you read his piece in the November 1, 2010 issue of Time.

Dear Time editors:
Re: “Restoring the American Dream,” 11/1/10, Zakaria, Time Magazine
Fareed Zakaria makes good points, but fails to address the causes of the loss of the American Dream. How about our elected Congress critters outsourcing, offshoring and insourcing millions of American jobs to India, China, Bangladesh, Mexico and elsewhere? How about that $700 billion annual trade debt because we no longer manufacture our own products? How about Congress flooding our country with 70 to 80 million immigrants since 1965—to displace our citizens from jobs, schools, our language and culture—as well as create human population overload like Zakaria’s India? How about our Congress throwing us into unwarranted wars that dragged us into a $12 trillion debt dungeon? What about 41.8 million Americans subsisting on food stamps and 15 million unemployed Americans because Congress won’t secure our borders or stop endless immigration or stop outsourcing jobs?
How about our presidents and Congress members that work against our interests to make sure the American Dream can never be realized by a growing number of Americans? It’s as if our own elected leaders engineered our decline as a civilization. How do we get 41.8 million Americans off food stamps when we import 1.3 million immigrants annually, along with 800,000 illegal migrants and another 900,000 of their children being birthed once they arrived each year—which enjoy welfare at our expense? How can we every catch up to employing our own 15 million unemployed citizens or the 41.8 million living on food stamps? We cannot! The American Dream will be seen as a brief fantasy circa 1960 through 2010.

P.S. Please forward this rebuttal to Fareed Zakaria at Time:
Fareed Zakaria talks about his native home of India as a robust economy and growing optimism?! Pure fantasy! I traveled in India. Every DAY of the year, 1,000 children under 12 die of diarrhea, dysentery and other water borne diseases. They can’t stop it because they add 12 million more people per year net gain! Their waterways run with raw sewage with 10,000 square mile dead zones at the mouth of rivers like the Ganges. Somewhere around 10 to 30 million or more Indians do not enjoy a toilet—so they squat on the land daily. I personally met Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, and he said, “Over four million Indians are born in the streets, and die in the streets without ever having taken a shower or slept in a bed.” All the while, they add that 12 million net gain annually because their religions refuse to utilize birth control on their way to overtaking China as the world’s most populated at 1.55 billion by 2050. The ‘Indian Dream,’ which there never was one, degrades beyond hope for 95 percent of India.

Ironically, Zakaria illustrates another example of brain drain out of a third world country. The US sponges the best and the brightest from other countries and the result: leaves those countries without leaders, academics and teachers. All the while, their countries grow worse while ours grows overpopulated. Roy Beck addresses it in his incredible five minute video below.
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 and why third world countries lose brain power. Take five minutes to see for yourself.
