(Back at the Ranch) With our cruise delightfully free of small children and ringing phones, I had some time over the past week to sit back and reflect on one of the most genuine economic problems there is.
The little ones (how to accumulate wealth and how to keep at least up with the market) have only taken a dozen years, or so, to overcome.
This other problem, though – that of benchmarking the world — has proven more difficult.
There are economic answers, don’t get me wrong. The world, as of now, has global gross domestic product by country of a bit under $78-trillions dollars.
It is a shock to the American ego to realize in GDP, Europe is actually bigger: This Wikipedia list is very revealing:
So, how many illegals are in the European Union?
This gets to me to asking some of those “hard to answer questions” that the modern, corporatized, me-too, neutered media don’t want to seem to ask.
How does the “Syria problem” of refugees stack up with the Obama administration-backed swamping of the US Border by Central and South Americans?
Let’s look at a Europe Union website here for the answer:
An estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since the outbreak of civil war in March 2011, taking refuge in neighbouring countries or within Syria itself. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 3 million have fled to Syria’s immediate neighbours Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. 6.5 million are internally displaced within Syria. Meanwhile, under 150,000 Syrians have declared asylum in the European Union, while member states have pledged to resettle a further 33,000 Syrians. The vast majority of these resettlement spots – 28,500 or 85% – are pledged by Germany.
See that highlight in yellow?:
Fact #1: Europe is committed to only 183,000 Syrian refugees, so far.
Now comes the calculation no one is going to believe, except me, because of what the data says:
The population of the European Union is what?
Fact #2: Europe’s population was 742.5 million in 2013.
Fact $3: Simple math: 183,000 divided by 742.5 million is what? 0.00024646464.
Which we turn into a percent by whacking two zeros off the left: 0.024646464 percent.
Which is? Two-one-hundredths of ONE PERCENT.
OK, easy enough to calculate and yes, those liberal bastards of Europe are getting whipped up over a 2/100th’s of one percent issue.
The American Case
Now let’s do the same thing with illegal immigration into the US from Mexico just so we can see whose sh-t stinks, shall we?
Fact # 1: The population of the USA is presently about 318.9 million, shall we?
Fact #2: The are 11-million illegal refugees already in the United States. And that’s a 2005 – 10-year old number. It is higher today.
I’m kidding, right? Sadly, no. Google it yourself here:
According to the same Pew Hispanic Center study as of March 2005, the undocumented U.S. population had reached 11 million or more, including more than 6.5 million undocumented Mexicans, which is around 60% of all unauthorized immigrants.
Fact #3: Simple Math: 11 million divided by 318.9 million is 0.03449357
Which we also turn into a percentage by sliding the decimal point two places to the right. So it now reads 3.449357 percent.
If you really have an inquiring mind and want to separate media hysteria and histrionics from facts so that you might make cool, sound decisions about how the mass media manipulates populations and keeps them whipped up, divided, and thus under control of the ruling class, there are few things more powerful that what?
A calculator and a brain.
That’s because we can look at the data available from most any web browser (with a good bit of it traceable back to ‘offishul’ sources) and see that once again, America is being played.
The two key numbers you should be able to work out (but I’m going to help you anyway, since this ain’t no math test) are these:
183,000 total Syria refugees, divided into the US’s 11-million illegals from Mexico is what?
We have SIXTY FRIGGING TIMES MORE ILLEGALS THAN EUROPE and yet some EU member states are already compelled to build fences.
That speaks volumes about a) how stupid Americans are when comes to actual borders, b) how the leftist bullshit in Europe doesn’t really work when the rubber meets the road and c) how white supremacist Europe is. Hitler didn’t come up in a vacuum, you know.
On a little less dramatic basis, we compare percents.
In the USA, out of 100 people, 3.449 will be illegals from Mexico.
In Europe, you need 10,000 people to get 2.46 illegals from Syria.
What is even more startling is that people – like Bernie Sanders – who want to be president along with our existing left-leaning liberalista gang in power now – want to bring in even MORE refugees, if I’m reading the press reports right. In fairness, Bernie is waffling and won’t say how many he’d accept, but that’s what socialist surprises are all about.
We know Obama has put the US in line for 10,000 of these folks, not that he asked anyone.
Ure’s ugly truth:
If you give spoiled people an unlimited number of do-overs, they will screw up every time.
If you hold them within the confines of borders and make them get along, over time they will either get along, or they will kill each other off.
Europe’s pretty stupid, so here’s a reality check: Despite their supposed Western inclinations, Turkey is facilitating the Islamic Invasion of Europe. But don’t mind the facts or geographical realities.
I would suggest that in order to get a realistic look at how “crazy the world is” on this immigration stuff, we use what I call The Cancer Model.
If a cancer (such as bigotry and violence on religious grounds, which I consider a cancer) is detected, what does and oncologist do?
If it were Europe, and the cancer was at the foot, for example, Europe would get all worked up over 183,000 dangerous cells. They would begin treatment with isolation and fencing. Which they are doing.
Yet here in the USA, illegals that continue to pour in every day due to orders from Obama types that run counter to law. This is particularly dangerous when comes to Other Than Mexicans (OTM’s) that are being bundled up and introduced into every healthy city we have.
We can all thank the Obama administration for promoting the placement of S.A. gangs throughout America. And YOU have been duped into supporting things like “sanctuary cities” and all the rest of it. Bleeding heart stupidity.
Laws are on the books for a reason.
Sadly, I seem be one of the few people – armed with nothing more than a calculator – who can run numbers and tell you where the rats are.
The S.A. drug gangs and the Islamic militants who burned Paris in the uprising a few years back have much in common. That reasonable people on both sides of the border have been swamped with BS from the liberals but in Europe they are now out building fences as fast as they can. This is truly one of the worst commentaries on the decline critical thinking in America as you’ll find.
I hold educators and their approach to education accountable here..this “we all finish winners” and such. Fact: We don’t.
Taking the liberalista/’Merican promotion of gay and lesbianism right down to the first grade classroom? Hello?
Are these people trying to kill off the American birth rate, or have they another agenda?
Important note: I don’t have any problem with what people do behind closed doors, don’t get me wrong. But in the end, there are no children resulting from such unions except for the bi’s.
Now, compare that with the up and coming zealots in places like Yemen who are breeding new West-haters as fast as they can. It’s part of their culture.
Then do the math.
I have, and the results are pretty stark. The LGT movement ensures that the Sex Race (to procreate actual humans) is all but lost.
So when you see stories about how some countries, already realizing that there is a population tipping point in the wings have become anti-gay and so on, I’d suggest that it’s not because of what consenting couples do. It’s the marketing and where it leads.
It is a marketing problem and you can run the numbers yourself. The Russians have.
There are only two ways out of the bad ending that’s coming into view. 1) Either we need to quickly export the LBGT idea ands inculcate it as a movement in Islamic countries to counter their birth rates, or 2) we need to build fences and wait for the hordes to break through.
With the West afraid to use neutron bombs, the other side has already set off their sex bomb. We’re already losing and being invaded…cheered by the bleeding hearts.
Since no one seems to be able to recognize that the LBGT movement is actually a good thing on the environmental and resource front, the future for the West will be smaller populations of folks already in place eventually being overwhelmed by the New World Disorder that ignores borders and promote religions that kill who?
I leave for a week and this is what I come back to. Sheesh. Next time I won’t pack a calculator.
While the European Union is now planning to turn back illegals on the high seas, the traitors in Washington who don’t enforce the letter of the law deserve to be thrown out in the next election cycle.
America needs to elect leadership that can not only read, but do basic math. What I have written about for years is here. It’s the Manufacturers Resource Wars and as resources dwindle, fighting will escalate, a die-off arrives and a likely world war.
Bummer? Not for those who prep, but prepping alone is not an answer. The basics: Living apart, working the land, collecting the water…all that matters greatly, or will in time.
We should still have 2-7 years to go. One more blow-off top. But that should be followed by something like a global version of the Great Depression concurrent with a global version of the Irish Potato Famine. Except, of course, instead of potato blight, it will be GMO’s that haven’t been tested enough, blowing up or going sterile. The perfect storm of the four horsemen is coming.
The calculations inform us that Europe is a distraction if not foreplay.
As it approaches, the messages from past great civilizations, such as in the Vedic literature will not be lost on those who have open minds who plan ahead. A read of the Mahabharata and sites that hint at the larger cycle (like this one) become more interesting.
The pattern, though soft, is there. The great wheel turns.
And we’re under it. But not just yet.
Write when you break-even.
