The Ticking Bomb

The liberals are well on their way to triggering the first recession, since the end of the Clinton administration. They will do this with tax increases, sending social security revenue to illegal Mexican indigents and their usual entitlement state theories put to practice.

The liberals, who have been heavily advocating amnesty and citizenship for the explosive growth of illegal workers, are taking up crucial slack in the job market. They say these are jobs Americans will not do. Of course, the large population of teens and young college age students, simply unwilling to work, has also grown enormously. Those kids would normally have that option, since they can buffer their lack of employment with parental support.

The liberals are also looking at raising the minimum wage. What will this do, when they also cancel the building of a border fence? It will increase the exploitation of illegal aliens for low paying jobs. That is what it will do. The natural economic forces, regulating wages, providing jobs, operating within the predictable realm of statistical data collection, are completely short circuited.

So where is the ticking bomb?

When their policies trigger that recession, American citizens will be looking toward that natural slack in the employment system for interim jobs. They will find those jobs filled with illegal aliens. They will then look toward entitlement support. They will find that support consumed by Social Security exports and the usual saturation of the medical system.

This could be a very unpleasant civil situation.

Unfortunately, genuine violence and wallet pain seem to be the only motivating factors in our apathetic culture.

Agreed! Great post. Their arrogance will turn to melted goo soon. Unfortunately, we citizens have to suffer the consequences of said arrogance.

I guess the citizenry must suffer the consequences of ignorance as well.

Sadly, so-called conservatives are pushing some things on this agenda, too.
Like amnesty and SS bennies, among others.

Who said people get the government they deserve?

And that is exactly what I would call them, jimmyb. so-called conservatives. Covering up incompetence and lawbreaking with more incompetence, lawbreaking and economic suicide is not conservatism.

You said it Insol.
Nice to see some post, BTW! ;)

"I guess the citizenry must suffer the consequences of ignorance as well."
Well said. Add to that the fact that it's *willful* ignorance and I'm left without much sympathy.

Insolublog said...

Thanks Jimmyb.

Those illegals will not be sympathetic either, Morris. They will not go quietly, into that good night, either.

I hate when I get to the comments section here at Insolublog, and I have nothing to add but, "Insol. You are a genius!"

And yet, here I am.

Thanks, FIAR. You are the man; with Bacon to boot.
