A STATISTICAL GLIMPSE OF U.S. ABILITY TO SUPPORT FOREIGN CHARITY

A STATISTICAL GLIMPSE OF THE U.S. ABILITY TO SUPPORT FOREIGN CHARITIES

EXAMPLE: REFUGIES

I have a kind and giving heart and do not approach this topic with bias, however, from a purely logical and objective viewpoint, stats inform us that we need to learn to “just say no” or maybe later, or check back in 50 years. I am not stupid enough to give away my own home that I worked hard for, and live out in the street such that someone else less fortunate can live in it while I sleep in the dirt (that’s the direction our retiring populous are headed once the social security system is completely defunded from pilfering it and directing funds into programs for non-citizens, and almost a Million annual Home Foreclosures that could be compensated for).

There is a very simple 7 part Litmus-test which should be used to help determine whether we (should be taking in refugees or others), before they even get to the official Immigration protocols.

1. How do we benefit from it (tourists spend money, the others ask for money).

2. Is the status of our welfare system able to accommodate it (nope).

3. How do we determine who is dangerous (impossible without records).

4. How will it impact our vulnerable citizen populous/cohort e.g. our orphans (don’t know, don’t care approach???).

5. Why would anyone proceed to take in refugees when their own neighbors and cousins in (e.g. Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, North Africa et Al. won’t do it).

6. Will they integrate and embrace our constitution, laws, culture, values, social norms, and way of life and be productive and peaceful (ummm what is history bearing out).

7. How will it affect our financial and unemployment problems (will they take our jobs), shouldn’t we be using that money to pay down our national deficit, pay back our defunded social security system, and help citizens retain their “family homes.”
