United from Alaska to Chile! YES we can!

We can create a trade block and team with one billion people!

George W. Bush wanted to bring the Western Hemisphere together as a trade group, and as a team, from the top of Alaska to the bottom of Chile, before 9/11 happened which changed everything. Obama does not have the same vision unfortunately. But, the next president of the USA might have the same vision that George W. Bush had, and may work to bring us together in the Western Hemisphere, which would be awesome. There is now the European Union, and it would be good to have a union of the Americas here in the Western Hemisphere.

There are going to be some changes if the Western Hemisphere comes together as a team, and one big change will be that English speaking White people will no longer be the majority, but rather Spanish speaking Latinos will be the majority. The racist ethnocentric Whites are in for a change, and those who embrace multiculturalism will flourish. Those who embrace the Latinos will rise quickly.

Some interesting things are going to happen. It did not happen under George W. Bush unfortunately, but eventually the Western Hemisphere will unite for the betterment of all, and we will have a team and a trade block consisting of one billion people here in the Americas.

And we should work to bring the people of the Western Hemisphere together regardless of who is in the White House, the President of the United States is just a servant of the people of the United States, just as the President or Prime Minister of any nation is just a servant of the people of that nation, the public servants are there to serve us, the people have the power. We need to make it happen, we need to bring the people of the Western Hemisphere together from the top of Alaska to the bottom of Chile for the betterment of all.

Salute,

Pertaining migration within the Western Hemisphere...

The Border Patrol on the USA-Mexico border did not exist until 1924. And people within the Western Hemisphere were not restricted. We in the USA did not even need passports to go to Canada and Mexico until recently. The USA is a free country, and our borders must retain freedom, and we must be free to migrate unrestricted here in the Western Hemisphere. We do not want it to be like Nazi Germany.

----------

In 1924, the first official border patrol was established on the Mexico–U.S. border. Prior to this date, however, Mexican immigration was not restricted in the way it is today:“a Mexican caught crossing the border illegally was told that if he wished to enter the US, he had to do so at a regular station and pay the fees.” Moreover, immigration from the Western Hemisphere had remained unrestricted until 1965 with the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act, even though countries from Eastern Europe and Africa, for example, had limitations, severely restricting immigration from those countries.

From Wikipedia.

----------

And the issue of the Colombian Refugees is the largest humanitarian crisis in the Western Hemisphere. We must welcome the Latinos, including the Colombian Refugees, into the USA.

Also, there is the issue of empty cities in the USA, as the populations of many U.S. cities decline, including in Detroit, and the Latinos, inlcuding the Colombian Refugees, can help to repopulate and grow the empty cities.

Another issue is the issue of many U.S. citizens retiring and moving to live in Latin America, the retiring U.S. citizens want to be welcomed into Latin America.

And lastly on this post, is the issue of companies growing and employing workers, all over the Western Hemisphere, the Western Hemisphere must be a place conducive to the growth of companies and must be a place conducive to employing the workers in the Western Hemisphere.

Salute,

Tony V.

Those of you who are bilingual need to give all of this information to the Latinos in Spanish. I do not speak Spanish, but here is some of the information which I translated on the web with Systran...

Sarah Palin dice que no podemos tener un país sin fronteras, ella es ignorante, nosotros no tenía una patrulla fronteriza en nuestra frontera meridional hasta el 1924, acabamos de multar sin una patrulla fronteriza, y sin poner restricciones en gente aquí en el hemisferio occidental. No teníamos restricciones en gente aquí en el hemisferio occidental hasta el 1965. Y no necesitamos pasaportes viajar a México o a Canadá hasta hace poco tiempo.

También no me gusta la gente que piensa que ella es de alguna manera mejor que otras personas porque son un ciudadano de los E.E.U.U., TODA LA gente son igual creado. Y toda la gente tiene el derecho de vivir dondequiera en la tierra del planeta donde ella desea vivir. Los inmigrantes ilegales tienen el mismo derecho de ser aquí que Sarah Palin tiene, y los inmigrantes ilegales son apenas tan humanos como es Sarah Palin.

¿Quién está hablando hacia fuera en defensa de los inmigrantes?¿Sarah Palin está por todo la televisión que golpea a los inmigrantes, que va en la televisión a defender a los inmigrantes? Alguien necesita ir en la televisión a defender a los inmigrantes, tales como Salma Hayek, y Jennifer Lopez, y Sofia Vergara, y otras, allí deben ser gente que va en la televisión a defender a los inmigrantes.

The Italians know the secret of life. Here is an article that everyone, everywhere, can learn from, it is about the Italian immigrants in Roseto, Pennsylvania, USA, they had ZERO crime and ZERO people on welfare, read this article and you will see that there is a better way to do things than what is happening now, plus the people of Roseto, Pennsylvania, were healthier and had fewer heart attacks.

One very interesting thing about the Italian immigrants of Roseto, Pennsylvania, is that they achieved the highest level on Maslow's hierarchy of human needs, actualization, while still being poor monetarily. They were happy, even without the money. It is nice to have money, but this life is about love, and it is not only about money. You can be happy, and you can have a great life, without being wealthy, as was exemplified by the Italian immigrants of Roseto.

The Italian immigrants of Roseto had ZERO crime, they had ZERO people on welfare, they were healthier, and they were happy and reached actualization even though they were poor monetarily.

A lot can be learned from the Italian immigrants of Roseto.

-----------------

14.2 "The Roseto Effect"

I. HEALTH AND CULTURE

People are nourished by other people. The importance of social networks in health and longevity has been confirmed again by study of a close-knit Italian-American community in Roseto, Pennsylvania. At first blush, Roseto seems a diorama of what once was the nation's ideal lifestyle-neighbors who looked after one another, civic-minded joiners and doers who formed the grass roots of American-style democracy. It seems to showcase those virtues that have all but disappeared elsewhere in what has become what we are now--a nation of strangers.

At one time the village came to be a living laboratory demonstrating that neighborliness is good not just for the body politic (community) for the human body (self) as well. Now Roseto is changing, becoming a community of suburban commuters with satellite dishes, fenced-in yards, and expensive cars.

Thirty years earlier, medical researchers were drawn to Roseto by a bewildering statistic: in defiance of medical logic, Rosetans seemed nearly immune to one of the most common causes of death. They died of heart attacks at a rate only half of the rest of America. Doctors were mystified in that residents led what medical textbooks predicted would be short lives.

The men of the village smoked and drank wine freely. They spent their days in backbreaking, hazardous labor, working 200 feet down in nearby slate quarries. At home, the dinner tables each evening were laden with traditional Italian food, modified for local ingredients in ways that would drive a dietitian to despair.

The Mediterranean diet, with its use of olive oil rather than animal fat, has been touted lately for health benefits. But, poor immigrants couldn't afford to import cooking oil from their homeland and instead fry their sausages and brown their meatballs in lard. Yet, the resulting hefty bodies contained unusually health hearts. Why?

.....

II. A RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY

Study of the "Roseto Effect" began with a chance conversation over a couple of beers. A local physician happened to mention to the head of medicine at the University of Oklahoma that heart disease seemed much less prevalent in Roseto than in adjoining Bangor, occupied by non-Italians.

When first studied in 1966, Roseto's cardiac mortality traced a unique graph. Nationally, the rate rises with age. In Roseto, it dropped to near zero for men aged 55-64. For men over 65, the local death rate was half the national average.

The study quickly went beyond death certificates, to poke, prod, and extensively interview the Rosetans. Instead of helping to solve the puzzle, all the data simply ruled out any genetic or other physical sources of the Rosetan's resistance to heart disease. Two statistics about Roseto were eye-catching: Both the crime rate and the applications for public assistance were zero.

.....

III. HEALTH AND SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS

Subsequent study showed that all of the houses contained three generations of the family. Rosetans took care of their own. Instead of putting the elderly "on the shelf," they were elevated "to the Supreme Court." The scientists were led to conclude that the Roseto Effect was caused by something that could not be seen through the microscope, something beyond the usual focus of medical researchers.

It seemed that those groaning dinner tables offered nourishment for the human spirit as well as the body. In fact, all of the communal rituals--the evening stroll, the many social clubs, the church festivals that were occasions for the whole community to celebrate--contributed to the villagers' good health.

In "The Power of Clan," an updated report on studies by Stewart Wolf, a physician, and John Bruhn, a sociologist, cover a broad period of time from 1935 to 1984. They found that mutual respect and cooperation contribute to the health and welfare of a community and its inhabitants, and that self indulgence and lack of concern for others exert opposite influences.

Tracing the history of Roseto, the sociologists found that early immigrants were shunned by the English and Welsh who dominated this little corner of eastern Pennsylvania. According, the Rosetans turned inward and built their own culture of cooperation and as Wolf and Bruhn noted, "radiated a kind of joyous team spirit as they celebrated religious festivals and family landmarks."

"People are nourished by other people," said Wolf, noting that the characteristics of tight-knit community are better predictors of healthy hearts than are low levels of serum cholesterol or tobacco use. He explained that an isolated individual may be overwhelmed by the problems of everyday life. Such a person internalized that feeling as stress which, in turn, can adversely affect everything from blood pressure to kidney function. That, however, is much less likely to be the outcome when a person is surrounded by caring friends, neighbors and relatives. The sense of being supported reduces stress and the disease stress engenders.

"We looked at the social structure of healthy communities," Wolf said, "and found that they are characterized by stability and predictability. In those communities, each person has a clearly defined role in the social scheme."

Into the 1960s, Roseto was the epitome of predictability and conformity. In clothing, housing or automobiles, any display of wealth was taboo. Women knew that, from their teens on, they would work in one of the many small blouse factories scattered throughout the village. Even the evening meal followed a rigid cycle.

"Monday" recalled 66-year old Angie Martocci, "almost everyone in town ate spezzati (a spinach and egg soup). Tuesdays, it was spaghetti and gravy (tomato sauce). Wednesday was roast chicken and potatoes. Thursday, spaghetti again. Fish on Fridays, of course. Veal and peppers on Saturday; and antipasto, meatballs and spaghetti on Sunday."

All of that conformity reduced the distance between the haves and have-nots, thereby reinforcing everyone's sense of conformity also spared Rosetans the stress that comes with freedom of choice. (My comment: the anthropologist David Maybury-Lewis in his video series Millenium that individuals in a tribal society grow up in a defined world where people know their place and their relationship to others. We grow up with freedom, he says, in a limitless world where we are often lost and terribly alone.)

Possibly the strongest conformity in the village was the work ethic. No only did everyone work here, they worked toward a common goal--a better life for their children. The reverence for work was the legacy of Roseto's first priest, Rev. Pasquale de Nisco. Arriving in 1896, De Nisco practiced what he preached. Taking up a pick and shovel, he started clearing ground next to the church to build the graveyard, where he now lies. Above all, De Nisco, whose influence is still strong in Roseto, preached education.

.....

IV. THE EFFECT FADES

In the slate quarries and blouse factories, the men and women of Roseto labored to be able to send their children to college, which they did at a rate far above the national average. By World War II, Roseto had a small white-collar class and was prospering. And of course with that, life began to change.

Wolf and Bruhn's study took place just as Roseto's golden age of community was drawing to a close. They were able to predict that Rosetans then under 30 would not long be content with their rigid, traditional lifestyle. By the '70s, homes on the outskirts of town were in the suburbanized style that had become the American norm: large single family houses, swimming pools, fenced years, country clubs, and churches outside of the community.

As people moved and achieved material success, they found those gains at the expense of traditional communal values with which they have been raised. One person said, "I'm sorry we moved; everything is modern here and we have everything I need here, except people."

The principal of the elementary school said that children's lives changed. They went from days filled with activities to lives of watching from the sidelines. She found she had to teach children how to play jacks and marbles. The strongest evidence that change had come to Roseto was in 1985 when the town's coronet band, founded in 1890, demanded for the first time to be paid for playing at the church's big festival.

As Wolf and his colleagues continued to monitor the health of the community, they noted that social change in the village was accompanied by increasing health problems. In 1971, the first heart attack death of a person less than 45 occurred in Roseto.

Nationally, the Americans' vulnerability to heart attack began to decline because of the widespread adoption of exercise programs and healthier diet. At the same time, the Rosetan's rate rose to the national average.

Roseto has lost its statistical uniqueness. Yet, it makes clear to a visitor that it retains a sense of community--one that would be the envy of almost any place else in the nation. For many families, eating remains a ritual of the communal nature of life here. On Sundays, extra chairs are drawn up and leaves are added to dinner tables all over town for a ceremony that satisfies both physical hunger and the hunger to be surrounded by people who share our lives.

At Rose's Cafe, the only restaurant remaining in town, proprietor Rose Pavan calls everyone by name. Anyone with questions about menu items is swept into the kitchen for a sample. Children, most in Catholic school uniforms, flock in for an after-school snack--just as parents did back when Rose's was Mary's Luncheonette.

A visitor is bound to come away from Rose's with a full stomach and even fuller appreciation how far the rest of us have drifted from the civic-mindedness that marked much of the nation's history.

(My comment: this article is drawn from a series done by The Chicago Tribune on America's loss of community. Other articles focused on our changing urban/suburban social fabric. They noted the social changes implied by suburban homes where the garage is in front and both parents are employed, often an hour drive away. This article was especially relevant for medical anthropology's emphasis on bio culture, the interrelationship between culture, health and disease.)

If older Rosetans are concerned that they have traveled too far down the path of materialistic fulfillment--a path that seems never to end in lasting contentment--shouldn't other Americans be at least as concerned?

We now know that people's reaction's to the same stressful experience vary widely and those who have a greater sense of control, support and satisfaction in their lives are less at risk of illness. Those who get sick most seem to view the world and their lives as unmanageable while those who stay healthy have a greater sense of coherence and control through faced with the same problems. The Rosetans, to put it in Darwinian terms, were a successful adaptation.

A wide range of illness reflects the role that ineffective coping and inadequate support play. The highest rates of tuberculosis have been found among isolated and marginal people who have little social support, although they may live in affluent neighborhoods. This article focused on heart disease, others are indicators of social life as well. These include respiratory diseases, accidents, and mental illness. Studies in England have shown that civil servants with the highest rate of death from coronary heart disease occurs amongst those with little social support. We are indeed nourished by contact with others.

.....

V. SOCIALIZING AND LONGEVITY

A study published in the British Medical Journal in 1999 found that people more than 65 who like to eat out, play cards, go to movies and take part in other social activities live an average of two ½ years longer than more reclusive people. Simply mixing with people seems to offer as great a benefit as regular exercise. Social and productive pursuits are equivalent to and independent of the merits of exercise.

In a similar study at Harvard, it was found that those who were most engaged in productive pursuits were 23 percent less likely to die than those least involved in such pursuits. When each activity was examined individually, doing a lot as opposed to not much, extended live in almost every case regardless of the activity.

Does humor matter? While it is popularly accepted that laughter speeds healing and fights disease, some researchers say that laugher isn't the best medicine after all. A review of humor research does not confirm a direct therapeutic effect of laughter.

Does love matter? In a study of 10,000 married men, it was found that-in the subsequent five years-men who felt love from their wife had significantly less angina that those that felt no love.

People who perceived themselves as socially isolated were found to be two to five times more at risk for premature death from all causes. Persons with low interpersonal conflict in their lives do best.

On the issue of immigration, I think that we need to have a "GOOD NEIGHBOR" policy for our friends and neighbors and allies here in the Western Hemisphere; we need to have a special relationship with Mexico, and with Canada, and with our neighbors here in the Western Hemisphere. (And we need to have special consideration for the Colombian refugees.)
 
And of note, the European Union has a special relationship among themselves, a guy from Ireland can easily go live in Italy, and we need to have the same thing here within the Western Hemisphere among ourselves here.

We must always come from a place of abundance.
 
In leadership training they told me to always come from a place of abundance, as opposed to scarcity. We can easily grow enough food to feed everyone on earth if we come from a place of abundance, as opposed to letting them starve as we come from a place of scarcity. And sometimes the way to improve things is to think big, even when times are hard and we are tempted to say that we cannot because of poverty. We can live in a world of abundance, and unlimited opportunity, or we can live in a world of scarcity where it just continues to get worse. And with leaders, say for a company, they want people who will make the company grow and prosper, not people who will keep downsizing it until it does not exist anymore. People want leaders who improve things, not make things worse.
 
With the bad economy, and with the giant debt of the United States, it would be so easy for everyone to downsize everything out of existence, which would only make things worse, at a time when we need to do the opposite and grow and prosper and improve things instead. A great depression is as much a state of mind as it is a reality, we cannot fall into that state of mind and we must avoid that reality.
 
We must come from a world of abundance and unlimited opportunity, and grow and prosper, and improve things, we must be creative in good ways and we must think big, and every problem creates an opportunity for people to solve the problems, and where there is room for improvement there is opportunity for people to improve things, etc etc etc.
 
I read that fewer people are willing to get student loans because they are afraid they will not be able to pay them off, and they are afraid to accrue the debt for an education, and that is totally the wrong way for them to be thinking right now, and at this time the USA needs to have a better educated and better trained population, and there will be plenty of opportunity for good educated people to solve problems and improve things after they receive an education. In my opinion the people of the United States need to enter college at higher numbers, not lower. Things are not going to get better if we have a lesser educated population, that is going in the wrong direction, we need a higher educated population instead. So we need to get them thinking from a place of abundance, so that we can achieve abundance, and a better economy and a better world.
 
And the whole thing with the debt of the United States could be solved if we come from a place of abundance. Much of the land of the United States is government owned land, we are talking abundance, and that land could be sold to private people, and that alone would pay off much of the government debt. The government can also make money with gas and oil leases at a time when gas and oil are at all time high prices, and drilling for natural gas and oil in the USA would be a good thing for many reasons. And that would help reduce the debt. Also, gold is at an all time high price right now, and there is gold on much of the government owned land, along with other precious metals. And that would help reduce the debt. If we come from a place of abundance then we can reduce the debt easily. Then, we monitor the spending of the government better in the future so that we can pass down surpluses to future generations instead of deficits.

Very nice humanitarian sentiments, Tony......but;

As the EU and its 'open borders' hasn't worked in Europe, so the Americas Union and its 'open borders' would not work either.
All you'd get would be the USA swamped by millions/hundreds of millions of unsuitable/criminal/poor/unemployable/welfare-seeking immigrants...as has happened in Europe.
Immigration should be improving a nation, not making it worse.
There aren't enough jobs for the People in America now.
