America’s rulers are paying everyone from everywhere to move to America.  And are silencing Americans who question their re-population enterprise.

America’s rulers are not saintly.  Their goal is not to re-populate their boards of directors.  Their goal is not to re-populate the neighborhoods where they live.  Their goal is not to improve the lives and fortunes of impoverished Americans.  The cost of inner city charter schools would be much lower than the cost of re-populating America.

Apple’s Tim Cook says Apple outsources jobs overseas because America’s workforce isn’t adequately competent.  Really?  Is he telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth?  Doesn’t the whole truth include the fact that overseas workers are happy to work for lower wages for more onerous management?  What level of competency is required to make sneakers for Nike?

Pre-unionization sweatshops have been removed from America.  But not from the nations from which Apple and Nike bring home enough money for private jets, private yachts, private schools, private security guards, multiple mansions, superior health care, and unrestricted access to government and media.  Cheap, compliant labor is an extremely valuable asset.

America’s rulers don’t defer to China and other nations in order to protect Americans’ “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.  America’s rulers defer in order to protect their access to cheap, compliant labor.  To protect the money-flow that buys what’s important to them.

Re-populating America is the enterprise designed to enhance (and ultimately replace) shipping jobs overseas.  To enhance the money-flow.  Imagine how much more money Apple and Nike would pocket, if they didn’t have to pay the cost of shipping their products from China to America.

And that’s the point.  Cheap, compliant labor right here in the United States of America.

But it would be nearsighted to focus only on Apple and Nike.  Every ruler longs for a financially distressed, compliant, uneducated population.  A population that won’t roll its eyes when told that a $3.5 trillion spending bill won’t cost anything.

Imagine the millions of immigrants who America’s rulers are paying to move to America.  Imagine the immigrants’ answers to questions in a job application.  Were you ever convicted of a crime?  Have you ever contracted a communicable disease.  Where did you receive your license to practice medicine.  Now imagine the potential employer trying to verify the applicant’s answers.  Ha ha ha.

When the only Americans are either super-rich or dirt poor, the laughing will end.
