Little things add up

This writing, or sequence, is a lot older than I am.

For Want of a Nail

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.For want of a shoe the horse was lost.For want of a horse the rider was lost.For want of a rider the message was lost.For want of a message the battle was lost.For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

As I do chores, walk the dogs, or maybe just sitting somewhere, waiting for someone or something, I start analyzing. 
It occurred to me that:
Following detail like this made the United States a great country--although most people were from "somewhere else". These people wanted a better life, under a system of government that was in place where they came from. 
They found that you could "Work your way up", and if desired, become a Carnegie (Scotland) or a Rockefeller. Most regarded these men as heartless and only caring for dollars the subordinates made for them, and most did not want to be looked at in that light. Most were content to do a job that paid a salary or an hourly wage. 

That "Job" might have been to make buggy wheels, or later car wheels, to be used in making a wagon or later, a car. But every effort helped. And so, you had your Ford Motor Company, your Golden Gate Bridge, and your Hoover Dam. 

But it took a coordinated effort. 

What we see now are companies sending their work overseas, to China, Vietnam, Thailand. Essentially, the workers there do what they are told to do, and really never have a hope of progressing.  They have the work because Sundry and Various persons in the U S decided that their work was more valuable than the price the manufacturer could sell it for. 

That said, I see us sliding into a state where it looks like Mexico: Ninety Nine per cent at the poverty level, run by the one-per cent wealthy class. 

This is REALLY being pushed by B H Obama and his followers. He makes sure that the only people who receive aid are people who vote for him (They receive aid at the poverty level), or people who finance his regime. (These people get BILLIONS in your tax dollars) . Everyone else gets taxed, has their property seized due to some regulation that his regime has imposed.

The only bright spot in this scenario is that Muslims will never be able to run ANY country. WHY? Because their whole life-style is one of non-cooperation. You disagree with someone--You kill them.  Someone has a different religion than you do--You kill them. 

This does not generate cooperation or unity.
