A weak dollar is supposed to be good for a country that wants to export it's goods. Maybe the US needs to start thinking about exporting more stuff others want? They could have a pretty good baby making industry I bet.
Wow Sorgy, you shoot from the hip girl. Firstly I am not American, I am a Brit with a lot more experience in and of life than you. I can assure you that America is not on its own with the problems you mention. Britain is up to its chest in money problems,social security woes and National Health Service problems. As regards the NHS, it is abused by many nationalities whose people come here and all of a sudden have serious problems that we treat and when they are well they disappear with out making any kind of contribution towards their care. The Eastern European communities flock here and expect social security payments and free housing and schooling which we silly brits provide for them, they live on the streets and exist by begging from one and all and they send all their free cash [Social Security payments] back home so that their families can build large houses with it. Its a proven fact. We have dissident terrorists that we cant deport because we are strangled by European red tape [Human Rights laws] because we are a member of the common market countries. Half our lives are ruled by these silly politicians from Brussels and their stupid laws, Can you imagine your people in America would say if the senate ruled that Bananas had to of a certain thickness and length and not curved, or if you do not use the metric system for weighing loose veg, fish or meat your shopkeepers will be fined thousands of dollars. Thats what we in the UK have put up with for years and its because we are not ourselves anymore, we kow tow to others because we allowed ourselves to be conned into joining them.
Yes America is a sort of world master considering its size as a land mass, we on the other hand are roughly the size of Florida..big difference there, we are overcrowded to the limit and import many thousands of europeans every year and they have a Brussels given right to be here. America has oodles of space, our space is so tight that it keeps house prices at a premium, no one can afford to buy a property in the suburbs let alone a big city, the rental market is huge and the rents are high as well. I am not being a downer my lovely, I am just saying it as it is, not only in our countries but the world over. No one is going to wave the magic wand and put things right, we have to do that ourselves but it will never happen because for all the good people there are as many bad people, the minute a saving or good scheme hits the headlines the other side immediately start to work out how to undermine it to make it work for them so they get to control it and get all the profit. The good people have all ways been the payers and the bad people in this world have always been the takers, we have to pay for everything in the world today, nothing is free so if you want it you have to get off your rear and go and work for it, thats what I did. I am no rich person but I get comfortably by on my income because I earned it. The only way we Brits score over you Americans is that we can go to hospital and get treated for free whatever the problem is, on saying that we do pay a percentage of our wages [taken at source] to pay for it so its not entirely scot free. Apart from that we share all your countries problems as regards Jobs, fuel prices, house prices, low incomes etc. etc. Believe me you are not on your own.
On a lighter note the sun is shining today so lets all give the world a big smile and get on with our lives and try and make them better.
It's a proven fact that eastern European beggars send money home to their families to build large houses? I think you're going to have to post your sources.
The British Press is my source, check it out for yourself.
I'm pretty certain I'm too lazy for that. ^_^
Its no use having a mouse finger if you do not use it ;P
My mouse finger is pretty good at clicking links. They just need to be laid out in front of me.
A one finger exercise man eh!!
Technically, I am Canadian so I understand the issue with free healthcare and whatnot. I assumed there would be an an American majority, but I stand corrected.
I know unemployment particularly among UK youths is pretty bad. Last I checked it was 1 in 4 youth could not find meaningful employment. What do you think about the UK Independence Party? I really like a lot of it's platforms. Aren't you glad you folks didn't go in with the Euro. It's architect is calling for its end. Its architect! Why haven't you left the EU, yet? Cameron has done a so-so job of not being a lapdog, but he's a bit like Neville Chamberlain in that he still wants to appease those overlords.
Yes, out of work youth in this country is very bad, more so for the black youth, they seem to form and live in a gang culture in run down areas and I think downright poverty is to blame for this. We do not have practically any ethnic groups living in the area that I reside, except for a Thai group that are Thai restaurant workers and an Indian [asian] group that work in the care home industry. Back in the sixties we had a politician called Enoch Powel who warned then about the influx of black [all nationalities] people coming into the UK. He warned of ghetto's and fighting between themselve's and he has been proven right these many years on. Cameron is one way and then the other, your correct in the assumption that he cannot make his mind up. We are lucky that we kept our currency, thats the only sane thing about being a part of Europe that I find acceptable, but even that has caused problems because the of the high value it affects our exports and imports. China has gained a large manufacturing foothold in this nation [and the States] and is killing British free trade in our towns and cities. Local industry cannot keep up with the pricing of goods made abroad, mainly because the people abroad in third world countries and similar work for peanuts.
Cameron has promised the Brits a referendum as to whether we stay in Europe or make a fast exit but it never happens, its on and off like a TV set. We are in limbo because of this and I sincerely think that if he did announce a date for this referendum it would not go in favour of staying in Europe, I think over half the country [middle and working class] would vote to be out of it. I'm afraid its all down to foreign investment and fat cat pension funds for the money peeps in this little world of UK politics, but then again its the same the world over on that score.
The UK Independence Party or UKIP as we know it may be good for some policies, IE; they want us out of Europe, etc, and rumour has it that they will get around half a dozen seats in Parliament when the next general election goes to the vote because of their member wins in local area voting we have just had, they are enjoying success at this moment. Is this going to be the wind of change?? I would think that they will fare better with the conservative party than the liberals we are now in coalition with, personally the Liberals are doing nothing for us only infighting amongst themselves, and causing trouble with the conservatives because they all want different things, in other words they all want to feather their own nests. Its like foreign aid that the governments past and present are so adamant about, we give millions to poor countries and we borrow those millions in the first place, charity begins at home so we should put a block on it and spend that money in this country in the right places, getting people back into work, more new affordable housing for the up and coming young people so they can get a foothold on the property ladder, income tax relief for families and pensioners etc. In the America's, are pensioners charged tax on their pensions, what they have worked all their lives for because they are here.. But as they say, things can only get better eventually...or can they?
