HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF. The same genepool that rioted in the 60s in cities from coast to coast is at it again. And, the same bad news bears are stocking them.
People pay attention. Sure as God made little green apples, this will get a lot worse. WHEN, not IF the handouts dry up, as they are not sustainable at their current levels, the riots we are watching will break out once again. One big difference is that Ferguson is not an innercity. It is a suburb. The riots of the 60s were in innercities. But the aboriginals followed the same trend of Americans everywhere that chose to escape that mentality. The 'social or antisocial' mentality that drives these aboriginals relocates along with their bodies.
THIS TOO CAN HAPPEN TO YOU. The term 'entitlements' is one of the words this group is totally familiar with. They have been told they are entitled and they believe it was stamped on their forehead when they arrived. They are entitled and you must accommodate that entitlement. If you don't there will be H*ll to pay.
They (their groups, their gene pool) destroyed Newark, NJ, Asbury Park, NJ, Los Angeles, CA, and hundreds more. When I visited Washington, DC, for the first time in the late 60s, it was shocking and horrifying that OUR Nation's Capital could be in such destruction. Street after street with over half the buildings burned out, gutted. There were tents all over the place. I was in my mid 20s. I wondered what kind of people would do such stupid stuff. It's like the little kid that has a temper tantrum and destroys their favorite toy. It's nothing short of STUPID in the umpteenth degree.
In the 90s a minority coworker expressed dismay that there was no shopping in Newark. We are talking even supermarkets. I asked her who had destroyed the ones they had. She said they had. I then asked, 'why would anyone reinvest their life savings to build a store there to risk the same thing happening all over again'. Her answer was that the prior investors had made a lot of money off the people before they destroyed it. I asked how she knew this. Everybody knows they make lots of money, was her answer. So, I tried again. "If it were your money, would you build a store there and chance it?" She had no answer.
The only peaceful solution I can see is to taper off the handouts. They are unsustainable at the current levels. For them to stop at once guarantees the same destruction again. IF the benefits are reduced 5% every 3 months, it enables the recipient to be notified to prepare for when they will disappear. NOTIFYING them upfront when signing up that this will be the case, also lets them know this is not a lifetime situation. In fact, at that rate, it will take 5 years to zero out the handouts. But, it is at least a start.
It may very well avoid the destruction that is surely ahead.
It's only one plan. Surely there are better ones. Do you have one?.
Only an idiot would stand by and watch other idiots destroy property and lives.
It is coming and it is coming soon. The handouts are paid for with money borrowed under the National Debt. The ability to borrow IS DEPENDENT ON THE ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS OF OTHERS TO LOAN. That is nearing an end.
What's your plan?
