With the latest report from RAWSTORYtitled “For first time ever, US facing scrutiny of UN Human Rights Council” that didn’t shock me in any way shape or form that the United States had come under the microscope of the United Nations Human Rights Council for substandard human rights practices. First thing that came to mind was it’s about time.
Article 1, Sect- 8 of the Constitution of the United States reads… The Congress shall have power:To lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
What did that say? Provide for the general welfare, to pay the debts of the United States? How about provide for the general welfare of the banks and the ruling class, that’s the fact today. Sure there’s freedom still here, if you can afford to buy it, other wise it’s for the most part get on your knees and beg or pray. I have been blessed with good health and being able to work my way through so far and I know there will be many that will say what’s so wrong and where’s it better. This- it hasn’t happened to me so it isn’t happening mentality, I have never been able to understand.
I know what’s coming down the pike, sooner or later I will get old and sick and the hammer will be dropped and the vultures will be there to descend upon everything I worked for all my life, they’re waiting in the midst as I write. And it will matter not how much in taxes and how hard I have worked all my life, they will be there to take everything.
I believe well over half of the country right now works for or is compensated by the government in one form or another, who provides these wages and compensations, the government? No the hard working people like me generating the tax money, the government doesn’t make money they spend money, they take it from one and give to another. Sure they let it be printed at interest that has enslaved children not even born yet, the vultures wait at death and at birth, this is the most despotic group imaginable.
So I ask where is this so called Congress that is supposed to be providing for the general welfare of this country, where? All I see is a raping and rampaging of anyone that still has a penny in their pocket, they will figure out a way to divide that penny for themselves so that their precious life styles don’t have to change. Their general welfare has been provided for, that’s for sure.
At what rate is the general welfare for the person that worked and paid taxes all his or her life and now falls old and or ill, it will happen to all of us, some might say that is what insurance is for. What insurance, with over half of my income going into one form or other of taxes that none of which are providing for my general welfare who can afford $600-$1000 in automobile,life, health and dental insurance that you have to buy another policy because you need insurance for insurance, it’s pathetic… I can’t afford it and I have never had a job that provided it, you have to work for the government to get benefits like that!
What has me fired up is not just the issues above but listening to a talk radio show, the Secret Truth, a woman called in who has gone to the United Nations in New York to file for grievances against the United states government for genocide based on income, imagine that. She stated she’s being denied medicare and being told she no longer qualifies for her 2200 dollar a month medications. you can listen to her here or if you can see the player in your brouser click play.
Genocide comes in many forms, food, medical, financial, wars and such, there is in fact a genocidal tyranny that has been in place in America for decades. Do we have rights or is it in fact that everything is a privilege that has to be purchased by license, permit or insurance.
It is fact that today the general welfare of the United States is un-affordable to millions, I guess all these invisible people are just supposed to go away, is this the American dream to work the people to death and give them no benefits for their lives of servitude and paying exorbitant taxes?
What will you say when your time comes? or maybe your one of the lucky ones that has no worries.
“A people who’s lives are based on their income’s is the true definition of genocidal tyranny.”
“In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
