    I have been trying to write about the way this applies to the so called "illegal immigration" phenomenon.

    A half million people a year giving up everything, taking their lives in their own hands to cross deserts and through areas where they could be killed, is an exodus -

    from something.

    The news media completely deletes the "from what" question and so do all who debate illegal immigration.  It never comes up.  Ever.

    If you look at the hemisphere from an international banking perspective, it parallels the process by which the aristocracy of Great Britain and Europe got rid of the peasantry in the 1600s and 1700s - by getting them off of subsistence farming and forcing them to move to North America.

    We are financing it.

    On the consuming end, all we care about is the availability of exotic coffee, cheap beef, avocados, bananas and all the other agribusiness products that trillions of dollars in investments over decades and decades has brought us.

    We don't realize that these investments are made with the money we have in banks, in whatever form.

    More people need to be paying attention to what is going on with this and demand that Congress pay attention.  

    Currently you can't even get a congressman to answer a letter or an email on this subject.  They  know that nobody is paying attention.

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
