Isn’t that special?
The USA is faced with the (partial, at the very least) castoff of another public service that will have to be curtailed if there is no solution found.
What I’m talking about is the fact that there are more than 309,000 public pools and waterparks in the United States and there is a growing concern about a problem that has no immediate fix.
There is a huge shortage of lifeguards.
To make this problem even worse is that the presidents wild & crazy war on immigrants is affecting this in ways that would be totally predictable by anyone that used their brain and facts to address problems — instead, we have an idiot in the White House that prefers fear to rational thought.
So to alleviate this some communities are lowering the age for lifeguards from 16 to 15. Others are thinking about recruiting seniors to fill the gaps.
The ALA, the American Lifeguard Association, says that this is a problem that, although 10 years in the making, it is now being exasperated by the fact that it used to be those young people with swimming skills who wanted to visit American would get short-term work visas to be summer lifeguards.
Now concerns, that those visas could disappear and fears that foreigners are unwelcome, that solution is no longer working.
So, once again the fear-mongering brought to us by a narcissistic, unfit, lying, and an untrustworthy person is affecting us in ways that are curtailing the possibility of making America a source of freedom and no longer great a real possibility.
Make America Sane Again!
