How much did they pay you to move to Texas?

The best thing that came out of Texas was an empty bus. Problem is most buses are full and heading into Texas. The worlds problem is overpopulation. Migrants from Central America. Arabs with nothing to do in the Middle East. Italy and Greece with high unemployment. The world is without work. Robots. Automation. Technology. Lawyers are not needed anymore because of automation and cloud technology. Loan officers are no longer needed to underwrite loan packages due to advanced algorithms. Corn is cheap, wheat is cheap, and little third-world farmers are not able to make money. Walmart expands internationally and annihilates the small businesses and marketplaces that have thrived for centuries. Moving to Texas is a short term bottom line enhancement. In the long run, there is no place to hide. A world with growing unemployment and civil unrest. The U.S. cannot afford to continue to be the world police. The U.S. cannot continue to be the haven for the downtrodden of other nations. The TSA is stupid and a waste of money. The next economic and terrorist event will be a terrorist attack that uses a nuclear device in a US city. The terrorist get it, we don't want them flying lanes into buildings. Yet the TSA in 13 years have NEVER apprehended a terrorist. The terrorists have grander plans, closer to the ground... like an EMP or dirty nuke. It is not a matter of "if," but "when." Texas migration is a small footnote. The problems the US faces with illegal immigration are far more important. Men used to have middle class lifestyles framing homes and other building. Now who does that work? Our children used to mow lawns for extra cash. Now who does that? Our college aged kids used to work in fast food and retail to make cash for school and entertainment. Now who does that? Now we have migrant workers in fast food demanding a "living wage" for wrapping junk food in bags. Seriously? Well it won't be long before the robots take those routine jobs also. Then what are the uneducated, illiterate, language-challenged migrants going to do for work? Happy Independence Day.
