Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C.:
There are a number of factors contributing to the growing civil unrest in the United States. The first one is the large and expanding numbers of unemployed. This situation began when clever American businessmen decided to offshore their manufacturing. Their excuse was the high wages the unions were compelling them to pay their workers. By moving to Asia or Mexico, they could cut their costs in half. And then they laid off all of their American workers who were unable to find other jobs. This did not bother the businessmen, but they did not realize that an unemployed person could not buy their latest car, computer, or refrigerator. The obedient American media does not discuss this growing problem because it is told not to. The second irritant in the body politic is the increasing spying by government agencies on any and all citizens of virtually any age. Social Security, insurance and medical information, school and library records, telephone calls and any and all computer emails are all watched daily or the state surveillance machinery can store all of this material for future reference. Public unrest has existed but has been unfocused. This is rapidly changing and soon we will see a reprise of the civil uproar caused by the Vietnam War.
