Reagan Gahagan’s take on illegal immigration:
For some reason, I never thought about the fact that other countries had a similar baby boom after WWII just like the US had. In fact, every country that was involved in WWII had a similar baby boom after the end of the war when their respective soldiers came home from war. This also includes Japan and Germany. Every day I listen to the news around the world for no other reason than I like to hear world news as opposed to the US only news that is broadcast in the US. NHK, which is the equivalent to the BBC in Japan, is running a special daily series about how other countries around the world are handling their increasing lack of workers, due to baby boomer retirement. While the assholes in the Senate are trying to solve our retiring baby boom situation by allowing millions of Mexicans to gain citizenship, other countries are handling it much differently and some of them have some great ideas. I am convinced that the only reason that the Senate and Bush is so adamant about allowing millions of Mexicans to become citizens is so that the Social Security system will not go bankrupt while a large number of baby boomers in America are retiring. Other countries have this exact same problem with their social welfare systems. Here are some pretty interesting takes on how other countries are solving their problems. You may want to check this out soon because they only leave the broadcast up for 7 days and then they are replaced with a new broadcast.
