U.S. Dysfunctional at Every Level

America is dysfunctional to the core, as problems can no longer be solved at any level, individual, family, education, business, institutional, and Federal Government in particular. Geometric rise in the advance of technical knowledge underpins the problem in that knowledge seems to be instant, at the click of a button, but absent common sense.

Many smart young people, particularly those up to the thirties, cast an influence over their elders who hop on contrarian lifestyles of younger generations on the premise that if they love their children, they must also love and adopt approval of their godless dysfunctional lifestyles.

The conundrum is that Americans seem to know what is best for their own good, and that happens to be their own opinion, dismissing long-standing traditional moral and religious values out-of-hand. “Smart” overrides “Wisdom” that is not taught at any level of education, not even upper tier Ivy League Universities that produce the “Best and Brightest,” precisely the self-proclaimed designation of those in power, specifically the dysfunctional Federal Government whose solutions produce more problems than they solve.

America is deeply involved in endless wars and insurgencies around the world, bleeding the US of its young brave volunteers while simultaneously bleeding the country of its fiscal stability. Gone is the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin, “A penny saved is a penny earned,” meaning that money, however insignificant, invested at compound interest, would eventually grow astronomically.

Save money while repaying debt, but borrowing without repaying creates negative savings, and interest added to debt compounds financial problems that can lead to bankruptcy, as at a given point there are not sufficient revenues or assets to pay rising interest on debt, and more damaging, interest on interest.

But not to worry, as America has the Federal Reserve that buys constantly escalating debt with artificially printed dollars, in effect perpetually raising the authorized debt limit of the country, most of which is then sold to foreign countries as well as investors looking for safe haven to park excess dollars.

How dysfunctional can US finances get, though not obvious until whatever hits the fan, and then what result but possibly war as creditor nations demand their “Pound of Flesh,” or worse yet, blood in the absence of payment. “A pint of sweat saves a gallon of blood,” America’s excuse, “The check is in the mail,” but “Snail-Mail” gets the bad rap.

Dysfunctional GOP Congress spouts the line that when they get into power in the Senate as well as in the House, they will rein in spending but that rings hollow as the power of the purse resides in the GOP controlled Boehner House, but nary an effort to at least cut out duplicate, wasteful, and fraudulent spending and much-abused tax loopholes, on the premise that the Millions and Billions saved are insignificant, a direct defiance of “A penny saved is a penny earned.

Texas Senator Cornyn issues an annual list of those wasteful items, but nothing ever gets done to cut these abuses. Edmund Burke says it all, "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing,” but does not that in effect make them allegedly evil by their intentional neglect? A current Congressional inaction is refusal to consider revoking the NFL non-profit IRS standing as a not-for-profit organization, thereby relieving the NFL of massive income taxes, on the rationale that it is insignificant over the long run. Unbelievable except for Congress.

There is pressure in Congress to yet again extend payment to chronically unemployed of unemployment “insurance” that is not in fact insurance., Dysfunction is proven by the verbal diarrhea constantly flowing from Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who sees no problem in extending this unearned benefit that he claims can be paid for in 2024. HUHH??? Democrats seek to extend unemployment benefits to 1.3 million workers whose coverage expired at the end of 2013.

Former Dem House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes one accusation equally dubious, “Republicans’ refusal to extend emergency unemployment insurance has plunged 1.4 million unemployed Americans and their families into crisis, threatening to cost the economy 240,000 jobs this year.” Not extending unemployment insurance will cause the loss of 240,000 jobs? California can be strange, but this Pelosi lady is in a class and world of her own. Pelosi inferred that extending unemployment insurance creates jobs…Go figure. Never mind. Pelosi also said “We have to pass this bill (ObamaCare) to see what is in it.” Some politicians are too dysfunctional to be fixed.

Both Chambers of Congress are totally fiscally dysfunctional in that neither the Dem Senate nor the GOP House are serious about cutting spending to reduce debt, but mask their not so constructive efforts in cutting only the increase in spending that always rises while Congress happily claims they bit the bullet.

Dysfunction extends to President Obama who, in the act of cooking the books on unemployment he reduced to 6.7%, the lowest November 2008, adding only 74,000 jobs, neglects to mention that only 62.8% of the adult population is participating in the labor market, but Obama touts the job glass as filling, but is leaking more jobs monthly than it adds. “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.”

Dysfunction extends to Wall Street that laughs all the way to the “Too Big To Fail” banks with the spark of nearly a $Billion monthly in faux FED Monopoly Money that feeds the Bull Market frenzy that depends of ever-more new money to come into the investment pool. Democrats push to extend unemployment benefits to 1.3 million workers whose coverage expired at the end of 2013. Departing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke followed the QE Quantitative Easing plan of Alan Greenspan that is supposedly about to be tapered by new Chair Janet Yellen, who is left to extend QE or Taper down, but Wall Street wants none of the Taper, clamoring for never-ending unearned profits.

Dysfunctionality has become part and parcel of the American education system that has managed to dumb-down students as the goal is to impose politically correct concepts as regards to acceptance of “Two Moms, Two Dads,” associated homosexuality, and gay marriage that is taught in the earliest grades.

NJ GOP Governor Chris Christie joined the rush to grant rights to illegal immigrants as he signed a Bill granting illegals free In-State college tuition. Jersey is bankrupt, has the highest real estate taxes in the country, but no matter, illegal immigrants are at the top of the heap to benefit from the first crime, illegal entry into the US. Dysfunction in State Government is alive and well.

Congress via infamous Boehner, who always vehemently says NO to Obama demands, but later caves and hands it to Obama on a silver platter, now plans to do immigration, no doubt another debacle to join the ranks of Obama failures like ObamaCare and its portal, Conservatives are cursed with GOP long-term incumbent Liberal leaders.

Dysfunctionality is part and parcel of America due to irreconcilable differences of race, jobs, welfare, wealth, poverty, culture, religion, gender, language, politics, media, agenda, and a host of barriers that preclude unity but incite and divide America beyond repair.

Obama is particularly dysfunctional with his contrary Middle East War policies that generally favor enemies of the US, the 2.2 Billion members of the 57 nations of Islam. Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims, and much less Kurds, have fought themselves and non-Muslims since their founder, Prophet Abū al-Qāsim Muhammad who died June 8, 632 in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

The question arises as to why does self-professed Christian Barack Obama literally persecutes and advocates against Christian beliefs while favoring Islam and Muslims? At this stage of the declining American culture, it is difficult to suffer dysfunctional fools gladly. Even our terrorist enemies are glad and lucky to be in the tolerant politically correct America that enemies can help destroy with protection of America’s Constitution and those who would destroy Christianity, and a country in which they may freely engage in debauchery prohibited by their very own Muslim religion that permits lying and anything else that promotes Islam. Talk about having your cake and eat it too. The 19 plane hijackers of 9/11/2001 are a testament to that, with their use of alcohol and women prior to their deed. Do they still get their non-existent 72 virgins?

With all due respect to the office of the presidency, the present occupier claims to be Christian since being baptized by Pastor Jeremiah Wright, a man who cursed America; “not God Bless America; but God Damn America,” about 25 years ago. So what does that say about Obama’s 20 some year membership in that “church?” So if Obama then became Christian, he could only have been Muslim according to Islamic Law, as prior to that as he had a Muslim father, Muslim step-father, attended Muslim schools, and praised the Islamic call to prayer as “The most beautiful sound I have ever heard.”

Islam is another story as Obama in an address he gave at the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 25, 2012 (AP) reverently said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”

Is dysfunctional President Barack Obama Christian or Muslim? Does he always side with Islamist radicals? Does he apologize to Muslims when he visits their countries? Does he celebrate Ramadan in the White House with known Islamic terrorist leaders while ignoring the National Day of Prayer? Does he demean, insult, and persecute Christianity by forcing Christians to act against their faith as to forced acceptance of ObamaCare abortion and contraception mandates?

Christianity is politically incorrect in the eyes of the Egyptian Pharaoh Look-alike and wannabe. Let the facts speak for themselves. Sharia Law has made substantial inroads into dysfunctional US Court decisions based on Islamic Sharia Laws. Europe is teeming with Muslims who destroy historic cultures and traditions, and froth at the mouth for their opportunity to do the same to the US.

America must be on guard to protect itself from the Muslim enemy occupier of the Trojan Horse White House, whose intent is the Islamization of America. The enemy within is the worst and most to be feared.“ Beware of a flurry of "Left-Handed” Executive Orders designed to undo the Constitution to a greater extent than already sustained,by Obama as he has already Bent, Folded, Stapled, Spindled, and Mutilated the Constitution and Bill of Rights, insuring that his dysfunctional America will forever be true to its now degraded self.
