AMERICANS HIDING FROM REALITY: PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY
November 29, 2010
NBC’s Brian Williams last week reported, “The latest figures show 72 percent of African-American newborns in the United States arrive from single mothers, most of them teenagers.” (Date: November 7, 2010, NBC Nightly News) They immediately land on welfare rolls as “Aid to Dependent Children.” Similar figures include Hispanic teen single mothers. These unmarried teen mothers fail to graduate from high school—while they birth two, three, four and more children while living full-time off welfare.
The rate of U.S. taxpayer welfare dollars for this new generation of illiterate, irresponsible, unemployed and un-trainable armada of citizens and non-citizens—grows annually with massive immigrant loading of 3.1 million. (Source: www.cis.org, Dr. Steven Camarata) Legal immigrant mothers birth 900,000 newborns annually within the United States.
Additionally, figures show that an average of 350,000 to 400,000 illegal alien un-wed women and pregnant visa over-stayers also land on welfare rolls—paid for by U.S. taxpayers. U.S. citizens must pay for assisted housing, medical care, breakfasts and lunches, food stamps, K-12 education and more.
Seventeen percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics and 66 percent of Native Americans were born to unwed mothers in 2008. (Source: David Salano, KIAH TV Houston, November 7, 2010)
"It's unbelievable. I didn't realize the number was so astounding," said Kathleen Zein, a native of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti living in Houston. "I think the report is very sad. Hopefully things will change around, but it's an ongoing process. It's just bad choices, and they don't have the right mentors to guide them and [provide them with the appropriate way of] protecting themselves.”
Today, the American Reading Foundation offers these educational facts: The United States houses 42 million Americans and non-citizens that cannot read, write or perform simple math. Another 50 million American citizens cannot read past the 4th grade level.
ILLITERACY DEFINES THE THIRD WORLD
In my world travels, I witnessed unimaginable poverty, misery and human suffering in third world countries. Where you enjoy grocery stores filled with food and schools with teachers, over 1 billion humans cannot find a clean glass of drinking water daily. Because of that, 18 million humans starve to death annually.
Yet, third world mothers not only birth enough kids to replace the 57 million humans that die annually, those mothers add 80 million net gain newborns every year.
What am I getting at? Just this: illiteracy defines the third world. They add 80 million more mouths to feed annually, but cannot maintain or sustain any educational thrust. Therefore, what do illiterate human beings do? Answer: while we attend the opera or a football game—they propagate.
Brian Williams also reported that Detroit, Michigan suffers a 76 percent dropout rate from its high schools and all around the USA, a whopping 1.2 million 18 year olds hit the streets annually unable to read, write or perform simple math.
Yet, we spend $12 billion a month ‘nation building’ in Iraq and Afghanistan—while our own civilization degrades into third world illiteracy.
Bob Herbert of the New York Times followed up with my column last week, “Has the American Dream Come to an End?”, with his own, “America is hiding from reality.” He said, “However you want to define the American Dream, there is not much of it that’s left anymore. Wherever you choose to look—at the economy and jobs, the public schools, the budget deficits, the non-stop warfare—you’ll see a country in sad shape. Standards of living are declining.” (November 28, 2010, NYTimes)
No kidding Jack!
This country rots deeper in its belly than ever before. A whopping 41.8 million Americans utilize food stamps. Yet, our Congress outsources, offshores and insources millions of jobs. Congress takes jobs away from Americans by the millions—and gives them to immigrants.
The PEW Hispanic Center showed: In the year after the official end of the recession in June 2009, foreign-born workers in the USA gained 656,000 jobs while native-born American workers lost 1.2 million jobs—now totaling 15 million unemployed.
As the U.S. economy adds 95,000 jobs monthly, our Congress adds another 200,000 immigrants every 30 days. No chance for ever closing the employment gap for Americans! None! Zilch!
“The human suffering in the years required to recover from the recession will continue to be immense,” said Herbert.

While we stagger into 2011, our president and this Congress continue importing 3.1 million legal immigrants and their children annually with no end in sight. (Source: www.cis.org)
Does it make sense? Who chose this path? Why do we continue to follow it? Who benefits? Why does our Congress continue to do this to American citizens?
We do not see personal responsibility or accountability in our president or U.S. Congress. Beats the balderdash out of me!
