New Trends in America

New trends in America are coming down the pike. The question is will these new developments help or hinder citizens of the United States?

New trends in America are causing tremendous conflict and discord among its people. I am referring to the daunting social-economic happenings that are slowly appearing over the horizon. Three primary sectors appear to be potentially very troublesome: Economy, where are the jobs? Cultural conflicts, What happened to "live and let live?" Terrorism, can we get a handle on it?

Economy and Jobs

The economy of the United States is coming out of a black hole. President Obama appears to be trying his best. He is supporting heavy promotion of exports, manufacturing and job creation. Last week he proposed a huge initiative in infrastructure development in the United States.

What I don't understand, is this talk about tax breaks for the rich. Bush's tax program is running out. If tax breaks for the rich would help, why hasn't helped already?

Currently, the name of the game is financial survival. This means forget about your pride and work history. Take any job that you can get. Maybe you need to think "incrementally." I am suggesting by this that you may need to get two or three jobs-a few hours here and few hours there, whatever it takes. Do what no one else wants to do. Work night shifts and swing shifts. Take and do anything.

Don't give up on your dreams and aspirations.This means start or continue schooling. Upgrade your skills. Improve your communications talents. People tend to gravitate towards people who have are good at expressing themselves. Maybe taking a public speaking course is just the magic you need to break out of your rut.

Please don't wait until you have exhausted your last dollar before you decide to do something. For your sake and your family's don't place your self in a vulnerable position with absolutely no money reserve to fall back on. If you do, believe me, you will experience a terrible pressure on yourself.

Cultural Conflicts in the United States

Politics is a terrible tough business. You can take two perfectly nice people and turn the subject towards politics and look out! Before you know it, they will be going after each other with tooth and nail. Just throw in this volatile mix ego and ambition. Then you have a living breathing holy war on your hands. In just a couple more months we will have the general election for some important elected offices in this country. It will be very interesting to see what happens.

Ok, I will throw my hat in with the young people of this country. Why? Because they are tomorrow's future reality. They are not blindsided by the burdens and prejudices of the past. Additionally, they haven't been around long enough to accumulate mind numbing special interests that totally block reason and logic.

Yes, I endorse the "live and let live" model. It cracks me up when I hear all these so called stand up right citizens who "love" individual freedom turn right around and start screaming how we should think, pray and love.

Winning Against Terrorism in the United States

How to fight terrorism is a very complex issue. No question about it, the act of terrorism has no place in a civilized world. The radical sects that are promoting terrorism should be destroyed. America has been at it now for nine years.
