As you may have noticed, when it comes to politics I tend to avoid getting caught up in it. but there are times when what is happening in the political arena cross over into those areas that I do care very much about, this is the case with the latest on immigration reform in the US.
It is increasingly clear that the way we are living today can’t continue. We are destroying the planet, depleting natural resources and leaving us with doubts that future generations will inherit a lifestyle that looks anything like what we have known.
How do we solve the problems we are facing today? Well in the words of Jeb Bush we legalized all the immigrants here because they are more fertile and will create a class of youth we need to grow economically. See his comments here.
With about 7 billion people already on the earth is the answer really to encourage the return to large families? If these large families want to live to consume at the rate the people in the US do this will be catastrophic for everyone.
What do we do when there is another drought so bad instead it f pushing prices up on food there is no food? What about water? Already we have many areas in this country where the water is unfit to drink due to contamination. Fracking has resulted in entire communities unable to drink their water.
It’s frightening to see water running from your faucet ignite. But according to former Governor of PA Ed Rendell shame on those in office in PA who have voted in favor of a moratorium on fracking.
So what can we do when our country is being run by dimwits? I don’t know the answers but I tend to agree with Alex who has chosen to ignore politics in favor of projects where he can make a difference.
