So, the poor are seemingly on the receiving end over here, but, what about the the US under their new saviour, BO ???
Well, it does seem that, from the outside looking in, the levels of unemployment, the inaccurate assessments of much that surrounds current economic problems and the apparent Wall Street resurgence does seem to have the poor suffering more than perhaps was expected.
I really hate to rain on black folks parade, but, who amongst you, is getting a better deal now huh … ???
The soldiers amongst you … ??? … Those of you happy that you’ve got your token say in Congress, or the happily employed sports stars and actors making hay while you can ???
It’s an interesting time for people globally, black folks are being seen in a great many places that they weren’t seen before, however, the political commentary that is getting harder and harder to decipher for some seeds of truth cannot hide the levels of hardship that are encompassing millions globally.
Is that BO’s fault ???
Ofcourse not, I hear his supporters cry, why, who the F*** knows !?!
Is it fair to blame him for much that is now under his guidance and, “apparent”, control.
Well, I am more and more intrigued, the further into his term he goes, as to who is now speaking up for his leadership ???
According to many reports, the Wall Street brigade are the people most likely to be supportive of much that he’s done …. Hmmmm ……..
So, what percentage of Black Americans will be represented within that fraternity nowadays … ??? … more than previously for sure, but, and it is a BIG BUT, what does this mean for those beneath these monetarily driven individuals ???
I’ve just read an article that suggests that the impoverished are watching record profits for the Wall Street crew, leaving the poverty gap between the rich and the poor at it’s widest for …. errr hmmm …. 80 years !!!
Somewhat disturbing to think that in the 21st century, having the knowledge of economic failings of the past, that we are where we are today. Levels of unemployment in the US, apparently leaving at least 1 member in every 5 households looking for full-time work ….
In addition to this, now Ireland needs help, seemingly ahead of American people … ???
Well, much like commentary being made in England which hides a much tighter relationship than has ever been previously exhibited, Ireland’s economic stimulation would seem to require more urgent action than people living on the poverty line, who in essence, are, when working, the biggest contributors to economic stability and growth ???
As one of the worlds’ premier economies of recent times, much would seem to rest in BO’s lap, or, is it in the laps of those who so willingly supported his rise to office without thinking about who was paying for his rise and what that would mean upon his appointment to office. Certain calling cards that were waiting to be marked upon his appointment are now being called in it would seem.
I, like many people, was of the opinion that after GW, things had to get at least, marginally better ….
Unfortunately, as the poor get pushed further and further into corners, there are consequences that don’t seem to affect these so called leaders who continually claim to have the interest of the masses at heart.
Read between them lines at all times folks and look around you, assess things for yourself, don’t let rhetoric and those within the media be your guide, there is much that they hide.
