America's Twilight Years - Too Big,
By Frosty Wooldridge
Have you ever watched the TV program, "My 600 pound life"? If not, it shows obscenely obese men and women who have eaten themselves into gargantuan bodies from 600 to 800 pounds of fat hanging all over their bodies. They can hardly walk, breathe or live.
Their conditions constitute mental, emotional and physical deterioration of their entire bodily systems. After watching one episode, I became mentally ill over their struggles. It's sad beyond comprehension as to how someone ate themselves into such an unforgiving life...an impossibly miserable existence with no escape.
What happens to such people? For the most part, they suffer diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, crippled knees and ankles, poor circulation, can't walk, wheelchairs...and eventually, die at an early age.
How did they devolve into such a horrible condition? Answer: they kept eating more food without being aware of their weight gain. It crept up slowly, daily, weekly and annually. They lived horrible lives, and then, died of horrible conditions.
America's Horrible Conditions Gaining Ground
Do you see a parallel here? Our country enjoyed a manageable population of 194 million back in 1960. By 1970, we maintained a two-child average per couple. Our highways worked well, we enjoyed healthy clean air, plenty of water, room to roam and endless freedoms.
But, unbeknownst to 99 percent of Americans, U.S. Senator Teddy Kennedy, Howard Metzenbaum and Jacob Javits pushed through the "1965 Immigration Reform Act" that began the largest population transfer out of the third world and into our first world country that has ever been attempted in the history of humanity.
From an annual average of 200,000 immigrants, that bill jumped the numbers to 1.0 to 1.2 million annually, net gain, overwhelming our stable population. Then, without much fanfare over the years, their birth rates added another 900,000 babies, net gain, annually. Then, Congress allowed the unlawful entry of over 25 million illegal migrants to reside within America's borders.
Our quaint 194 million population jumped to 300 million by 2006. It jumped another 30 million by 2021, and it's expected to jump another 100 million by 2050...to reach 440 million.
From 1970 onward, 99 percent of Americans unknowingly blinked at our cities becoming traffic gridlocked, poorer, lower wages, immigrants taking American jobs, toxic-air-polluted skies, ghettoes forming, homeless, around 17 million dogs and cats roaming around that had to be "put down" annually because we could not stop the rampant breeding from irresponsible people...and our National Parks being overwhelmed and overrun. Then, more taxes to pay for welfare, food stamps and housing for the poor that had been imported.
We add, net gain, around 3.5 million annually. That's an addition of 9,500 people daily, every day of the year, over and above deaths.
Today, in 2021, like the 600 pound fat people, we're staggering forward with cities clogged with traffic much like their arteries are clogged with cholesterol and killing them. Over 40,000 die annually on our clogged highways, at 6 million accidents annually, and 16,400 accidents daily. Over 100,000 severe injuries due to vehicle accidents. Gasoline, because of higher demand, jumped from 30 cents a gallon in 1965 to $4.00 a gallon and it's rising higher as petroleum becomes much harder to find and more expensive to pump...and by 2050, as my latest book reports, oil reserves will be exhausted. We're looking at $20.00 per gallon in the future.
On the food front, we changed from sustainable farming methods to toxic Monsanto/Dow Chemical Roundup-ready crops loaded with glyphosates, Ariel spraying, and to GMO's poisoning the DNA of all other crops. We've been injecting and/or feeding nine different chemicals into every beef cow and chicken for the past 60 years to make them fatter faster to feed over 1.2 BILLION meals daily. But what poisons we feed them, we eat them, so we eat what they eat. Thus, cancers now dominate our hospitals.
We're breathing highly toxic air in our cities where most people live in 2021. We're drinking water with anywhere from 1 to 84,000 different chemicals lacing many of our metropolitan systems. Flint, Michigan is only a harbinger of what's coming.
We're carving up the wilderness in America to see more rooftops than treetops. We're laying down more asphalt and cement than green grass. We're exacerbating the "Sixth Extinction Session" whereby the human race now extinguishes over 100 species off the planet 24/7.
But it's all going unnoticed. In my state of Colorado, Denver, at 2.8 million, is projected to reach 4.8 million within 29 years. Construction cranes dominate the city skyline while the famous Brown Cloud offers everyone poison air 24/7. We face definite water shortages, horrific traffic and I-70 provides a weekend nightmare for all folks trying to escape the metropolitan insanity on weekends. Get this, with that 100 million added people by 2050, 35 of our most populated cities will DOUBLE in size.
This series covers the bare-bones of what we face as our country staggers into its twilight years.
"The Exponential growth Factor" always ends in collapse of any city, any state and any civilization. Whether it's the 11 million in the Los Angeles basin or the 8.3 million in New York City...it's a biological fact that if they keep growing, at some point there will not be enough water or food to sustain all those people. It's a guaranteed fact that we will exhaust all oil on this planet by mid-century...sooner or later.
Once we've exhausted all our resources, we are SO screwed as our water, food and energy systems breakdown. Once 330 million people cannot procure water/food/energy—will the "civil" in "Civilization" hold? Answer: nope! Total barbarism and back to basics of individual and tribal survival. That's what's coming and I document it in my book: America's Overpopulation Predicament: Blindsiding Future Generations by Frosty Wooldridge. You may receive a free electronic copy at the end of this column. Why should you care? Because this future remains on course to steamroll over your kids.
Like the 600 pound obese man or woman you've seen on TV, at some point, they cannot save themselves from their self-imposed obesity. They die. The same goes for any 'oversized' civilization. If we don't stop mass immigration driving our overpopulation course, your kids don't stand a chance.
Part 5: Our most cherished American themes will vanish
If you would like a free electronic copy of this book, please email me with your email address and I will send it to you. My goal is to start a national discussion-debate on what kind of a civilization we will bequeath to our children. Every American with kids or any American who will live in this country in 2050, needs to understand what they face. firstname.lastname@example.org
