Conundrum – Socialism vs America

Definition of Conundrum The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing. Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America: 1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized. 2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims. 3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government. 4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer. 5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about. 6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries. Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. Makes you wonder who is doing the math.  The direction of our country These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment: 1.

Directly from the heading of the request: Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children Solicitation Number: BERKS-RFI Agency: Department of Homeland Security Office: Immigration & Customs Enforcement Location: ICE-OAQ-DM which can still be found on the web. (Dept. of Homeland Security, 2014) It is clear that the UAC wave was anticipated. There is an excellent video article on YouTube discussing this topic. (Still, 2014) To be fair, the DHS solicitation is one for information as opposed to a proposal, but how did they derive an estimate of 65,000 children? The information requested is based on an extremely detailed set of delivery parameters. Here is the actual  Juvenile Transport RFI by Homeland Security 1-29-2014 (Dept. of Homeland Security, 2014, Word document converted to PDF, retrieved August 6, 2014). On Facebook I recently wondered (as have many others), just how this volume of children could make the trek from central America to the U.S. Maybe now we know. Caring for the UAC Wave of children is appropriate but...
