And this is where America makes so much of its money. But we are also looking over the entire year to see how the country has done thus far. It gives us time to reflect and also forecast for the upcoming year of 2020. So hopefully we are able to come to an understanding of the year to come after these next two months.

2019: WHAT WILL THE NEW YEAR COME OF MY BLOG

Image result for 2019

“Narrowing down the topics.”


what’s to come

The end of 2018 is just a week away. And I will be planning my blog for next year 2019. And for the coming year, I will be narrowing down the blog to 6 topics not 12 spanning the year. And these 6 topics will be of the most popular from my current year. So instead of writing a post from 1 topic for the month, I will be writing posts for 1 topic every two months. And this is the change, the metamorphosis of my blog that will eventually narrow down to fewer topics. As of now, there are two topics in competition with each other to see which one will make the cut. I will also provide more video content as well. Feel free to drop a comment about the topics you liked. Continue to like, follow, and share my work. SEE YOU  IN 2019!!!

THE LOGIC AGAINST THE EMOTION: WHY THE PUSH AGAINST IMMIGRATION WON’T WORK

barbed wire, barrier, blur

“Build it longer, stronger, still won’t help.”


immigration

Since the presidential run of Donald Trump, the sentiment of protecting our borders and removing illegal immigrants from the country have been a topic of discussion. And for the most part, these immigrants have come from countries south of the United States borders. Not too many from Canada, throughout Europe, Africa, or Asia; but from Mexico and Central America. And my criticism of the removal is not because mainly the separation of families and protecting borders. It’s about the sentiment; this held belief of immigrants taking jobs. We need to breakdown the thought of what it is to take a “job” and what are those “jobs” that are really being taken away. LET’S OBSERVE.

the job of the American born

In the United States, since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, we have held on strong because of the work coming from manufacturing. And over time, we have seen a lot of those jobs removed and taken to overseas nations where the cost of manufacturing is cheaper. This way, by the time it (the product) hits the U.S. soil, we are seeing a price that is a direction relationship of architecture, building, businessthe business conducted by the corporations themselves with outside country’s manufacturing. Now, here in the United States, with so many factories closing, you have a lot of small cities and towns throughout the country shutting down as well because they cannot afford to compete. If you’re an American manufacturer making televisions selling for $500 how do you compete with a better quality flat screen for $275 – $300. Eventually you have to shut down.

the job of the illegal immigrant

Coming to the United States to seek out a better way of life. That is the main goal for so many trying to gain access to our country. And for those who go through the rigorous process that can take years, they feel it was worth the wait. And then there are the people who take it upon themselves to risk breaking the laws of the land in crossing over the borders by land or by sea in Image result for mexican flagsearch of a better life. Many have known to come from the Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Haiti, being that they are so close to the state of Florida. And the bulk of the group that come through America’s borders do so through Mexico.

the jobs they have

In the United States today, there is a held belief that the jobs are being taken by illegals in America. Well, let’s observe what that means. Since Trump has taken office, illegal immigrants have been detained throughout the country and forced back to their homelands. A move that has directly challenged policies like that of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) created by the Obama administration put forth in the summer of 2012. And Americans have both praised and protested the push to remove and separate families. And the idea of jobs being preserved for the hard working American who are losing out to illegals has an underlying problem. Fast Food industries consisting of delivery drivers, servers, busboys, cooks, and cleaners; the hospitality industry of maids, bellboys, and other cleaning crew make up the majority of the jobs worked by illegal immigrants. What’s interesting, is since removing these families, the Americans finding fault with illegal immigration have not shown interests in those jobs. Why because they find it hard to raise a family on the income from working those jobs. So if the reason for removing illegals for the “most part” is preserving jobs and the jobs they are working you don’t want, what is the real threat?

evolution tech-solution

We say, we need to protect our borders from drugs, never works. Let’s protect our borders from violent crime, but the majority of the real threat are American born citizens. And the big one, we need to protect American jobs. But see, the real killer of American employment is technological innovation. The work that could provide for your families are or have become obsolete. That’s why you must have a more specialized skill to earn a living. The jobs like factory repetitive assembly work is not like it used to be. You now have more engineers working the machines that would in the past take multiple people for the processing of goods. And if you’re fighting technological innovation,you’re in a losing battle. Because the country, our continent, with world will not stop evolving through means of innovation and invention simply because you and I can’t keep up. We’re in a game today; a game of either evolve or get left behind.

REDUNDANT LIFE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN CAREER IS TOO ROUTINE

Two Brown and Blue Ceramic Mugs

“Same ole same ole.”


daily routine

When on the job, and you feel like it’s becoming a redundant task, switch it up. Because if you start to get that feeling of, “Oh, this again,” you’ll lose the respect for what you do. And if you’re doing something you love, you never want to lose respect. Because then you start to put out material that is garbage. So what you must do is reinvent yourself so that you are forced to take a step back and go hard again. But why do people get into a routine and it just becomes that in their lives.

monday – friday

Get up, go to work, put for a few hours, take a lunch, work some more, go home, eat, sleep; do it all again. Throughout this time you never change up what you are doing, so you become annoyed with the process. How about getting up exercising, walk to work, eat through lunch. Get everything done early, so you can head out early. Switch up the style because you will get bored quick. Or better yet, challenge yourself to bring in new methods of business to increase your odds of a raise.

what are you doing

The reason for the routine feeling may be linked to the fact that you need a new job. The current job you are working may have ran its course. And now you need a shift of focus in life. Because the job you currently have might be holding you back from doing more. And since it may be hard to find a job, it wouldn’t hurt to try your hand at an outside income to keep your mind in another direction. Even if you make a small amount of money, it’s a little bit more extra on top of your day job.

ECONOMIC STEROID: DO WE NEED A STIMULUS AT THE MOMENT?

airport, bank, board

“We need a push from the presidency.”


economic growth

Presidents throughout history have always looked to means of promoting a good economy. And one of those ways have been through an economic stimulus to the economy. People who tax payers receiving a check in the mail as a means to put it right back into businesses. George W. Bush did this which pumped a lot of money back into the economy. So now, should this be something that President Trump consider as one of his agendas as president?

where does it go?

When the stimulus is spent by tax payers, you would think the money goes into paying bills and personal needs. But the stimulus goes towards clothing, entertainment, and restaurants. Isn’t that something, the country receives money from the government, and this is where it goes. Now don’t get me wrong, a lot of people utilize the funds for payments of bills. But so many use the funds for indulging on themselves. Yet, when people say they need money or what they would do if they had money, it’s a far cry from when they actually get that check in hand.

can we afford it?

So, now the question remains, “Is America able to afford the stimulus?” Because it’s easy to say to stimulate the economy, but will the federal government sign off on the stimulus? There is a lot this administration is trying to accomplish that is already going to be a financial strain. So the idea of a stimulus is far fetched right now. That is unless, one of the plans Trump has takes a back seat momentarily.

SELF SUSTAINING: HOW WORKING FOR SELF BOOST THE ECONOMY

business, computer, connection

“Self made, self paid.”


work for self

Working for self used to be seen as such an extreme risk. Now in the recent years, the idea of working for yourself has jumped. Being an entrepreneur is now all the rave. And with the fact that it could add even more jobs to the economy, that is a reason to be behind self employment. The only downside is that most businesses fail because people are not too savvy on keeping a business open. For whatever reason, they get ahead of themselves and start to fall apart.

traditional vs. modern

IN today’s society , you don’t even have to leave your house to work for yourself. You can now open a business from the comforts of your house and build right where you reside. But there is still room for the brick and mortar businesses that we have come to love over time. Now before I said a lot of businesses fail initially. But the ones that last, prove to be quite profitable for our society. Some even go on to be major companies that first started out as small family owned businesses (Walmart, McDonald’s)

why work for self

People are constantly stating how they are looking for work. Or that they are tired of working for their current employer and need something else. So they try at working for themselves and sometimes it works and other times it does not work. But what you must understand is that everyone is not meant to be a boss. Everyone can not delegate nor can everyone get up day in and day out and work for years on end. People are infatuated with the word self-employed. But then, when you are in the paradigm of working the task becomes a lot harder. Yet, if you are able to work around the hardships and make it out successful, you’ll prove to be an asset not only to you, but the country.
