Greetings:Oregon Sucks! Nice economy you have there...Not.
Ya - I agree - Oregon does suck - and the economy is non-existant.
But you know - its time for all of us to stop accepting our federalistic fate - and begin asking questions - mainly why the economy sucks - not just in the state of Oregon - but all over the United States!
Heres are some responses - but first I need to tell you and others - I earned more as a high-school kid in the year 1980 than most earn today - working class as it were - while the COLA was about .25 - and or -- 25% of what it is today - Resonses as follows..
1. Clinton passed NAFTA and the WTO.
2. Clinton Encouraged tens of thousands of Illegal Mexicans to enter the US - giving them $50,000.00 small business GRANTS each.
3. Bush JR.- allows more Illegal Mexicans.
4. The Massive National Debt serves as a means to raise the COLA.
5. The Private FEDERAL Reserve makes more in Interest on the National Debt.
6. According to Affirmative action - NON-White Citizens are to be given everything - before white america - despite anyones true abilities - thus: the creation of not being able to compete globally is now a major factor - but yet - the Global Event is being pushed to un-realistic levels.
7. Global wars - in past - a war created new jobs - but this time around - manufacturing of military hardware is almost non-existant.
8. Illegal Immigration ==== Untold welfare ==== national debt increased
Chew on that...
