The headlines on Huffingtonpost.com and other websites are ridiculous. “SCREWED ONCE AGAIN!” Are they really serous about this unemployment issue? When did the United States become a socialist state or welfare state?
Sure, times are tough. But aren’t they tough for us all? Isn’t during the difficulties that we reach deep down inside ourselves and find out whom we are and what we are made of? I always thought that when you lose a job or quit a job you are suppose to go out and find another job? Isn’t that how the system works?
So what’s going here with these types of headlines coming out of the pro-socialist camps these days?
Living in Nevada I was surprised to hear about people quitting their jobs, not being fired from their jobs, and still being able to collect unemployment. Yes, I couldn’t believe this myself. I always thought that you would get unemployment when you were fired or laid off. When did this change? Then after a certain period of time you would have to either find work or lose your unemployment benefits. Again, when did the system change?
Once again, this is another serious problem we face in the United States. The majority of American people who put this current administration into power feel entitled. It’s horrible so many people have lost their jobs. It must be difficult knowing that those who were the top 2% earners are not making any money at all.
Talk about an EGO buster. Yet, get real and over yourself people. Seriously, find a job. Any jobs. It doesn’t matter what job, just find one. Read the article entitled, “40 indications of pride; Where do you rate?”
However, not everyone unemployed was a top 2% earner. Perhaps they have been lying to themselves or wanting to believe they were a top 2% earner, but remember it was lies that got our nation into this current condition, but seriously find a job. Perhaps the reason they are so against any type of immigration reform and shutting down the borders is because they realize one day they might actually have to fill the jobs that these entitled people currently do not want to take.
Have you ever noticed how busy restaurants, bars, supermarkets, gas stations, retail and electronic stores, etc. are these days? Looking in the paper there seems to be lots of jobs available yet the majority of unemployed, mainly those screaming “SCREWED AGAIN”, most likely, if never, would take these types of jobs. Rather, they want their food stamps in the form of a debt card so perhaps they could travel to California and/or any other ATM we might not know about and withdraw cash for their irresponsible spending addiction while they watch Oprah on television. No offense Oprah, you can’t help that you attract the “SCREWED AGAIN” population.
Beyond food stamps, this “SCREWED AGAIN” population would probably love if the government would once again start manufacturing cheese and milk so that way the Obama administration can shout out the windows of the White House when the streets are burning “Let them eat cheese, crackers and milk”, versus “let them eat cake”.
This entitlement syndrome needs to end once and for all. The G20 riots in Toronto were merely a glimpse of what is going to happen across the United States if this entitlement population isn’t woken up to the reality that hard work, regardless of what they do, will turn their lives around.
Can you imagine the greatest generation sitting around doing nothing but receiving handout’s during the 1930’s. Sure, there was aid available but the aid was given through local communities and organizations.
Where is the church throughout all of this? Seriously. What are our pastors doing to address this, “SCREWED AGAIN” population? A hard days work should equate into some sort of earnings or basic necessities of life. The next time you drive down the street to the store, or work, or wherever you go take a hard look at all the stuff that can be fixed and/or cleanup in our local communities. There is a lot of work that can be done.
Perhaps, just perhaps, when the government finally does fess up and says, “Hey, we are really out of money; no more credit is available and we can’t keep printing money” then maybe our churches, that should already be the cornerstone in all communities, will step up and start creating social welfare programs that instead of just handing out money because, “I don’t want to work and can’t find a job” will be replace with, “Hey, why don’t you go over to XYZ store / companies that needs XYZ repairs and/or cleanup and/or whatever it is and in return the store will ensure you are fed and given whatever they deem to be appropriate so you can survive”.
Wouldn’t this type of system work?
Remember, not everyone is out of money. Supposedly American corporations are sitting on trillions of dollars in savings. Most business owners, not all, still have money and need services. If this is truly the case and if we all stop outsourcing America, including buying junk we don’t need, perhaps we can start focusing on the local economy.
Can you say protectionism and no Obama boycott China? That would work, but why rock the boat overnight when we can start letting our voices be heard right now as we organize on a local level through our churches as we say to the federal government, “SCREW our 501(3)c status” as we together take our Democracy March forward to protect our culture, faith and community”.
I know this thought of revoking tax exemption status from the government for our faith-based communities isn’t going to be received well at all. But you know what? Who cares. Aren’t we all tried of everyone bending over for the government and getting on the government’s payroll and in return we can’t seem to get anything accomplished or say what we want to say to put those who we know need to be put in power at all levels of government? When do we all in one voice say, “Enough is enough?”
I promise when we finally do there is nothing they can do or can say because we the people hold all the power. We just don’t realize that yet, but we are starting to.
I would love to hear your opinion on this subject as well as let your voice be heard as it would be an honor to have you join me at Democracy March .org .
If not now, then when?
