"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Senator Barack Obama voted for the June 2007 immigration amnesty that would have doubled current immigration levels to two million annually. He voted for complete amnesty for in excess of 20 million illegal aliens. He voted for the Dream Act that took hundreds of millions of dollars out of the hands of black American college kids' hands— only to give it to illegal alien students. Fortunately, senators under enormous pressure from American voters – defeated both bills, over and over again.What's the problem here?
Barack Obama represents the best of African-Americans. Yet, he fails black America miserably! He stands in favor of flooding this country with lower wage labor that destroys any chance for African-Americans to gain a living wage.
What happens from his actions – as well as those of white politicians?
On Friday, January 18, 2008, Denver Rocky Mountain News journalist Tillie Fong reported, "Homeless given shelter from bitter cold." A picture showed 95 percent of the homeless as Black Coloradan Americans on their way to the shelter.
National figures show over 1.1 million homeless on our streets at any one moment in America. Over 13 million American minority children live below the poverty level.
So, why won't Obama and white politicians address the fact that – in many areas of America, 50 percent of Black Americans cannot find a job? More troubling, 40 to 50 percent of black students fail to graduate from high school – depending on state to state statistics. As their family units break down, 50 percent suffer out-of-wedlock birth rates?Painful economic dead ends
That dilemma drives more black Americans into welfare rolls, soup kitchens and homeless shelters. It places their children into survival mode of drugs, violence and economic dead ends.
Barbara Coe, of www.ccir.net in California, sent me a distressing notice last week concerning African-Americans.
It read, "In many areas of the country, male African-American unemployment hovers around fifty percent. Many black voters, who have the most to lose, support illegal aliens. Many black politicians support massive immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens even though mass unskilled immigration has dramatic impact on their constituents. While many black families live in poverty throughout America, black politicians are eager to import more poor people who will compete head-to-head for jobs at the lower end of the economic scale.
"African-Americans are getting hosed by their own politicians on a grand scale.
"Legal and illegal immigration has undercut blacks from the jobs they once held in meat plants, service industries and on construction crews. In many cases those were union jobs that paid good wages with full benefits. Now those jobs go to illegal aliens who work for pennies above the minimum wage."Yet from black politicians nary a peep is heard.
Why do George Bush and Congress support 572,000 troops on 700 bases in 120 countries around the world that cost U.S. taxpayers over $1 trillion annually— but neglect American citizens as collateral damage inside our own country?
Ask yourself why Bush and many in Congress supported an immigration bill that doubled current legal immigration from one to two million annually? Ask yourself why our Congress and Executive Branch secretly advocate for more-and-more "undocumented immigrants" as they encourage taxpayers to pay one trillion dollars per year for primary, secondary and tertiary "fringe benefits" – while the 20 million fully-employed illegal aliens are paid $1.7 BIL per year, much of which is in cash.
Why do our leaders flood this country with tens of millions of low wage workers when our own citizens hang in the balance? Why prop up Iraq with $2 billion spent weekly for a country that doesn't want us on their soil? Why do we do it without end – while our citizens suffer terrific hardship within our own country?
Why would Obama ignore the most vulnerable Americans?
Why do Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson say nothing and do nothing about unrelenting, unending immigration? What about Dingell, Jefferson, Young and other Black leaders twiddling their thumbs while their constituents languish in soup kitchens, homeless shelters or cardboard boxes under bridges – even as you read this column?Patriots; Terry Anderson and Ted Hayes
Two great African-Americans stand up where Obama retreats. Talk show host Terry Anderson and political candidate Ted Hayes in Los Angeles, California speak Truth to black Americans on what they face from the Mexican invasion.
If we continue flooding our country with the poor of other countries, we'll mushroom the juggernaut of poor in our nation. If we continue ignoring poor Americans while we meddle in other countries' business— we fail the original intent of our founders of this Constitutional Republic.One last thought!
The USA is not the lifeboat for all nations. If we continue adding the poor of other countries, at some point, they grow old here without any means of supporting themselves— which will create a whole new form of class poverty. It will prove intractable and unsolvable – beyond soup kitchens, homeless shelters and boxes under bridges.Listen, gentle readers! Something grows horribly wrong with our fragile sovereign Republic – the United States of America.
