Protest THIS

While, the fury of injustice flames burn bright, fueled by anger, hate, major concern, coupled with a whirlwind of questions -major changes are taking place to our country. “Hey….look at this shiny red ball, while I completely violate the Constitution and the will of the people!” That IS what is happening. Ahhhh I know the burning buildings flames are bright and those that can afford to, are too busy buying gifts for the upcoming holidays so there’s a lot to distract us from what our administration is up to….. 
What is so crazy about this Executive Order on Amnesty, is that the ones so many are protesting for, looting for, rioting for, and marching for, are the ones that will get hit by this order the hardest, these are the ones who are going to feel this massive blow the most.
There are 45 million Americans living in poverty right now. Families ran by single mother’s, according to the US Census Bureau, are the highest ranking when it comes to poverty. The poverty rate for African Americans is higher than all other races at 27%.
Interesting fact: according to the National PovertyCenter at the Universityof Michigan: “In 2010, 19.9 percent of foreign-born residents lived in poverty, compared to 14.4 percent of residents born in the United States. Foreign-born, non-citizens had an even higher incidence of poverty, at a rate of 26.7 percent.”
Let’s make this simple and easy to understand…..because that’s how I like it…..I am a busy mom, with little time for mumbo jumbo.
What causes poverty?
Where do I begin, there are many factors actually, but I am going to name three for the sake of time-when blogs get too long people stop reading.
1) One of the major causes is it’s a cycle, a trap that very hard to get out of. Generations, after generations have been caught in this circular hell hole, without the ability to get out!
2) As mentioned earlier, very few two parent households are in poverty, and it is single moms, who are most often caught in this bondage.
3) The Economy, jobs…..the creations of jobs or lack there of….can cause one from being “kinda” poor to living in total poverty.
Why am I saying all this? Great question!
Well….while all this insanity of Juries not indicting on questionable crimes committed by those in authority…..a lot is happening behind closed doors….or actually open doors….wide open doors but no one is noticing because buildings are burning.
I mentioned a few weeks ago on Facebook that the verdict for the Michael Brown would come in close to the time Obama would choose to issue his Executive order on amnesty….well I was right (or close to it….they were separated by like three days). And, it doesn’t come as a surprise either that the Congressional House has put forth a bill today, to stop Obama on his Executive order the day after the decision not to indict the officer responsible for the death of Eric Garner, a black man trying to make a dime in a shitty economy by selling non taxed cigarettes in New York City, which is causing deserved outrage.
The whole amnesty thing though, will get little press or time in the media because of the crazy madness and hyped drama of race and police brutality that is headlining all news sources right now. I am not arguing that police brutality and racism don’t exist, they DO-but I believe these specific circumstances are currently being used as distractions to the bigger picture.
Poverty and crime go hand in hand. 
You throw in a single mom trying to raise kids on her own, in a crappy economy-you are pretty much screwed. But then to add having to compete with the influx of millions of illegal immigrants to find work (who according to the interesting fact above, tend to fall into poverty themselves)…..you are inflicting much more pain. But to then add an incentive (a tax break) of 3,000 dollars (that falls under Obamacare) to employ illegal immigrants over US citizens….you are asking for all hell to break loose.
Every protester marching the streets, rioting, protesting and so forth should instead be outside the White House. Because the All Powerful OZ is illegally issuing orders that will inflict a deeper level of poverty on people already in the struggle, resulting in an onslaught of tribulation.
Where is the outrage? The man that said he was “for you” is doing NOTHING FOR YOU.
Which makes me wonder….why? Why would someone do this?
Why would someone want more people in poverty, more people receiving welfare? More people leaning on government aid, because lets be honest,  it’s damn hard out there!

I don’t think you have to really wonder….you just have to open your eyes. You just have to step back from all the chaos and drama, and look to see there are much bigger powers at play…..or you could just keep looking at that shiny red ball.
