I can do TEFL, I'm taking a course to get certified even while I'm doing my last semester at grad school and doing my great internship at the NHM. I'm actually really excited about my personal life, in stark contrast to last semester, but depressed as usual about my country.Oh, wait is this one of the drunken sick posts I'm supposed to ignore?
Look into the Peace Corps too. Maybe the biggest regret I have is not joining the Peace Corps when i first got out of college.
I had a friend who between jobs joined Habitats for Humanity. I can't remember exactly where he went (maybe Thailand or Maylasia) but he liked it so much he never came back. I think he now works at an International or American School.
I'm terrified about the future of the planet because of our impact as the United States on the global carbon footprint. This affects EVERYONE. Unless you're so sick or elderly that you're about to die and have no children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews you care about. I have nieces and nephews, and I'm not especially young, but I'm not old enough to where this is a "ha ha" to me. I'll be in my 70s at best when the **** hits the fan, but it could be as soon as my 50s. I'll probably still be alive, unless I die in a horrible accident or of an unexpected terminal illness, because I don't believe in suicide after knowing a lot of suicidal people in my teens. I've thought about suicide, as an option, and I know people who are in HIGH SCHOOL now are doing the same, contemplating if they'd kill themselves if the worst were to occur, if they could. That's what horrifies me too, is I had a good twenty years of being a young adult who was optimistic about the future and the generation right after mine isn't enjoying that privilege unless they're a child of religious psychos who think the world isn't ending. I'm also really mad about animals. Something was put into me on a genetic or spiritual level where I simply can't tolerate the mass extinction of non-human animals. I'm so ****** about that sometimes it keeps me awake at night.The following is just my opinion.
I think most people in this country look at what's going on in the light of , " It doesn't affect me." I'm curious how far it has to go before they realize that some of these things do indeed affect them, or will, and will it too late to do anything about it. How close is this country to the point of it no longer matters who you vote for, but rather who counts the votes? This is a point for personal reflection.
RE Social Security, I don't believe it is a scare tactic, what it seems to be is a constant proding of the populous , testing again and again for the time that resistance will be insufficient to allow them to take that away either in part or in whole.
In my case I'm not optimistic about it, actually not about the future in general , locally, nationally, or even the fate of our species. I must admit, history scares me--A LOT.
This may come as a surprise to you and many others, but the USA was never intended to be a democracy, which is basically a mob-rule system where the 51% can do what they please to the 49%. It was meant to be a Constitutional Republic (which by the way has little to do with the 'Republican' party). In some ways it still is this, although less so now, as the Constitution has been changed to contradict itself, and in some areas is even ignored. I believe this by long term design by some very powerful people, both within and without.It's a strong message to the world that the US isn't a democracy anymore.
Unfortunately, the Electoral College allows the 49% to do what they please to the 51%This may come as a surprise to you and many others, but the USA was never intended to be a democracy, which is basically a mob-rule system where the 51% can do what they please to the 49%.
If you mean in the sense that by voting for a specific person, and that person has near kingly powers to impose his or her will on the masses, I agree. Presidents have for some time been taking and exercising more power than they are given in the Constitution, which just bolsters the point I was originally making. Unfortunately the corporate/banker controlled mass media encourages this in much of their rhetoric.Unfortunately, the Electoral College allows the 49% to do what they please to the 51%
The USA is presently an oligarchy, as are most nations in the world. It is ruled by the deep state or shadow government, which is in control of the monetary system. This control was granted by the Wilson Administration with the creation of the Federal Reserve (a central bank) and finalized with the Nixon Administration which took away the last remnants of a Constitutional currency that was eroded bit by bit over just short of 100 years.
This video doesn't show much nuances. It is literally based on conflicting different concepts. The way democracy is defined is too narrow. It never meant that the 51% could rule the 49%. I can understand that the founders referred to Democracy in a very particular manner but that's not the way we comprehend it nowadays.The USA is presently an oligarchy, as are most nations in the world.

However, the USA was started as a Constitutional Republic, not a "representative Democracy". The differences in the forms of government can be adequately explained to the layman here:
It is a sad irony that the founders of the USA not only described it as a Constitutional Republic, but they also strongly warned against the issue of currency by banks, and what would happen to the country eventually when the banks and corporations rose up around them as a result.Not being an expert in world politics, I'm a bit surprised that the USA is considered an oligarchy by some.
Whether or not the United States is considered an oligarchy is split. Americans do enjoy many features of a democratic government,
such as elections and freedom of speech; however, it is believed that powerful corporations and affluent individuals have a particularly
larger influence on policymaking than ordinary citizens. While the United States is a democracy, many economists and researchers believe that it is one or is at least heading in the direction of one.

I find the pyramid with the eye more concerning. Novus ordo seclorumTrump is just a symptom of the problem. Look on the back of the US $1 bill and you'll find the Rothschild red shield (the so called Star of David) above the eagle carrying arrows(war) or olive branches(peace), protected by a government shield.
