Disturbing Realities Across America: Living at the margins

By Frosty Wooldridge

If you watched NBC’s anchor Lester Holt on Saturday evening’s news, he reported that Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, features a “food pantry” for students who cannot afford to feed themselves while attending college.  Further into the report, Holt announced that 50 colleges across the United States feature “food pantries” that give donated food stuffs out to destitute college students barely able to make their way through college.

The whole report sickened me.  NBC’s Brian Williams last week reported that this month is the 10 year anniversary of invading Iraq with “Shock and Awe” from former President George W. Bush.  We suffered 4,750 dead young men and women, 32,000 hideously wounded soldiers and $2 trillion in expenditures.  Williams also announced that no “Weapons of Mass Destruction” existed in Iraq.  We also killed over 150,000 Iraqi citizens.

As I sat there in my chair watching the news, I felt an overwhelming disgusting feeling that a band of 535 lunatics and one lunatic former president and the present incompetent president lack any ability to deal with reality and create solutions that solve America’s problems. 

No one in his right mind would invade a sandbox country run by an idiot dictator over 10,000 miles away. Iraq posed no threat whatsoever to our country.

Yet, we feed 47.7 million Americans with food stamps because those individuals cannot find a job or are too illiterate to hold a job.  We suffer 14 million unemployed Americans looking for work. Our infrastructure and bridges crumble right before our eyes.  We stand eye-ball deep in $16.5 trillion in debt.  Our educational systems spit out functionally illiterate and welfare-dependent kids by the hundreds of thousands every year.

A mind-numbing 13.4 million American children live below the poverty level in conditions that sicken any middle-American.  Some one million Americans remain homeless night after night in the city streets of America.  One in six Americans face hunger.  www.feedingAmerica.org “In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different. Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger.  These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.”

Yet, our Congress just gave Egypt $250 million dollars in aid this month.  We send billions of dollars that we borrow from other countries to give to dozens of countries around the world in foreign aid.  Yet, our own country rides on the thin margins of pretention.

That same Congress imports 100,000 legal, unskilled, undereducated, welfare-prone, food stamp and assisted housing recipients every 30 days into America.  Those same immigrants along with illegals cost American taxpayers $346 billion annually across 15 federal agencies. (Source: Edwin Rubenstein, ESR, www.TheSocialContract.com)

It’s so beyond the realm of stupidity that it morphs into the realm of insanity—but Congress carries out this level of insanity as a normal method of day to day business.

We flounder at saving ourselves on the margins of our national debt by waiting until the last minute to pass a bill to raise the debt ceiling.   Yet, we never solve the debt problem at the cause.  We continue with endless wars that cost us trillions of dollars, but we march right into new wars that provide no security or freedom—but plenty of death and debt.  Our children suffer with educational systems bankrupting, but we add more to our military budgets where we must train poorly educated citizen soldiers.

We stagger into the future without a plan. Specifically, President Barack Obama staggers forward without a plan and our Congress waltzes into the financial and social abyss with him.

The American people become victims of our leaders’ incompetence, their corruption and their outright greed.  For those 535 Congress critters to continue their pretenses of leading this country, it’s appalling that they can sleep at night knowing they fail us and fail us utterly.

One reader said, “Your latest article regarding immigration expresses what I’ve been saying for years. Neither Bush nor Obama care about securing the borders. All the talk about creating jobs is smoke and mirrors and rhetoric.  Congress is still allowing 100,000 people to come here legally each month. How can we possibly put Americans to work at this rate?  Looking at the whole picture, I firmly believe our country is finished, and it’s not going to return to what it was when we were younger. We will not out-vote those whose gave Obama a second term. He is bent on destroying our way of life, and succeeding. Morality and a belief in our Creator have been severely weakened.  The U.S.A. is controlled by a despotic president, and parasites in Congress.”

    This is because the US dollar backs all wold currencies . I.E why you can walk in to any store in the world and they will accept US dollar as legal tender. Gold doesn’t back a country’s money , the US doller does. This is why it is so Important to the IMF to keep the US dollar from crashing . The US dollar should have crashed in the 90s during the Clinton administration but it was diverted to Japan , they then tried to back it by oil but campaigns across the Middle East and Africa have only caused further debt and now the euro zone is in its death thurals as the last support beam holding up America when it goes we will experience a debt crash that will send the world into chaos ,

    Its the flawed and failed WTO Trade Policy thats Killed our markets and Wealth redistribution by taking away our self reliant production when we created our own vital parts supply to then be that engine of wealth redistribution . It was Lobbied away from our communities and small business families over the years since the WTO trade Policy was adopted that allowed the consolidation of these small businesses into the Multi nationals that were bailed out and combined with the Government in 2008 .
    Change the Trade Policy or it will be used against us in a Final stage of USA Collapse . Watch this video to get the knowledge needed to understand where we are and why , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiIaPhvHa-w&feature=player_embedded

    This article tells you how they used the flawed trade policy to do it , its the same effects of what is called Greshams Law of the 14th Century when different valued currencies trade in the same markets without some form of balance of value .

    Jews.
    One word, one plan, one new world order.
    All of this is planned down to its last detail, as Sepra ( below ) so cryptically states.
    All of these “insanities” are not insane in the least. They told you what they would do in the “Protocols”. “Forgery ! Hate Speech! Anti-Semitism!”
    They told you what they think of you in the “Talmud”.
    They showed you what they would do to you in Russia. 50 million not just dead, but slaughtered like pigs.
    The screams are getting closer.

      hot breakfast! thanks!

    Reality is Rich people’s Children buy their offspring political positions. How can people like George W. Bush who has been oil wealthy all of his life ever begin to understand the life most average Americans endure? They can’t.

    This is why I don’t vote. If you don’t vote you don’t need to complain.

    I don’t obey any law that is not Constitutional. I just laff at the rest.

    In my mind’s eye I just did a citizen’s arrest of about 300 cornygressmen, one pompous skinny negro, and one old look’n hyena type guy. Always grinning.
