    If I have offended you by assuming you lean left, then please accept my humble apology. Your 'lean' is 'undisclosed'.

    But, you are right about the immigration problem. What is happening right now is that the illegal immigrants are becoming America's newest 'slave' class. They pay into the system to the tune of about a billion a year into SS without being able to draw anything out. They do it because five dollars at the end of the day is better than 50 cents at the end of the week. BUT, they will not always be content to be US slaves. They will get old. They will want the money they paid into the system. They WILL rebel. The WILL demand their benefits. And by the time they do their numbers will be so great they will be unstoppable.

    Well, I'm retired now so the 6 figure thing is in the past. The Republicans didn't make me. The Democrats didn't make me. I made myself. The job I had was one that self generated earning power. You are right neither party is invested in a person keeping their income up. But at the end of the day it was the Democrats who took the most away from me.

    Good question, and likely the reason I estimated him to be a leftist.

    It's cool. My 'lean' is deliberately undisclosed because I don't have one. I (we) have been screwed by both parties and until American's clean house, there will be no change. Hadn't thought about that angle on immigrants but I'm sure you are correct.

    Permanent success? Seriously?

    No the government can't fix the economy as in it can't change the circumstances it can only make the best of them. Considering how screwed up everything was they did a pretty good job of crisis management. Like I said I would have preferred to just let the banks fail at any cost but, we didn't. If you expected the government to turn the depression around into high GDP growth YOY you're dreaming. We went for a structured failure which meant a decade of paying for it with the same overlords staying in power at the cost of the middle class and the benefit of the ownership class.

    The more you think about the immigration thing, and the more research you do about how they pay in and don't draw out, there is no other conclusion that can be drawn.

    So what solutions would the resident anarchist offer up for the predicament in which we find ourselves?

    As I said, I would agree with you. Corporate Americas abuse has no limitations.
