I recently spent a day in Los Angeles. Each time I travel down the 110 freeway, I admire the expanding skyline of new skyscrapers growing alongside the freeway. As the business section grows, so grow the number of employees and customers traveling to the City of Angels every day. Continue reading City of Angeles, City of Homeless!
I hated math in school. By the time we started learning decimals, fractions and negative numbers, it was downhill for me. I envied those who were able to calculate equations without difficultly. I would write out problems and didn’t know how to check to see if the answers were correct. I miss the days of doing math by hand as much as I miss the days of writing in long hand. I haven’t done either since high school.
Nevertheless, with my limited knowledge of math, I figured out a few things. I cannot put more into less! If I have a 1 quart container, I cannot pour 2 quarts of liquid into it, because the container will overflow. If I rent a one bedroom apartment for myself, I can be reasonably comfortable; however, it would be very uncomfortable if I rented it for a family of four.
Our politicians have been pounding us to accept the influx of what they claim 11 million illegal aliens. They claim that we must bring these people out of the shadows. If these people are in the shadows, how did the government calculation of 11 million? Are they just guessing? Couldn’t there be more or less? There could be 5, 10, or 20 million illegal aliens; however, the politicians claim that legalizing them will be good for America. Really?
Overall, we have 10 million young Americans un or underemployed of which 2.5 million are kids. Now it seems to me, that we do not have a container large enough to hold the unemployed U.S. citizens we are responsible for, let alone another “11 million” none citizens!
I do not think that I am the only one who wasn’t a good math student. It seems to me that our politicians were not paying enough attention in math class either. Maybe it is time for us to calculate how to get rid of them, at least that would free up a little space and a few jobs for some people who can count.
