THE CALLOUS & OFTEN CRUEL TREATMENT OF THE POOR
(ProVerse, Parables, Fables)
Part 6: Compassion For The Poor: The Attack On Poverty
IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO BE REMOVED FROM THIS LIST PLEASE REPLY WITH REMOVE IN THE SUBJECT LINE.
Editors Note: John walked the earth while many crawled wallowing and laying down in waste as they kicked goats, dogs, cats and other human beings. Meanwhile the day broke and John had nothing but joy in his heart. He saw compassion and the will to share and shout hallelujah as he rejoiced at the rain. So sad were the days bent with the willful acts of depriving the birds of the field of water and seed. But this was a myth as God provided for all of his creatures. This John said counted up man also.
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
We believe that President Obama sets the record for a broad based attack on poverty never before seen in the annals of American politics. He dwarfs FDR and the parallels are minimized as Obama seeks not only new directions in domestic policy but his foreign policy is also revolutionary. We bear witness that President Obama is revealing a manner of sincere trust that has never been seen coming from the White House. Therefore many believe that President Obama can be trusted to design and install programs for the Public Good. In him we find that the Public Trust is in good hands.
Often many people just talked about the Democratic Party as the party re-established by FDR as the champion for the poor. However the poor have suffered since FDR among the various administrations Democratic and Republican. But President Obama means what he says and throws a wrench into the double talk of previous politicians and acts on what he has promised.
Therefore we solicit the support from the masses of the people in America for the efforts of the President to relieve the burdens of the poor and the not so poor and rich. All Americans need affordable and proper health care. We also need educational reform. There also is a need to regulate the banks and lending institutions regarding the inflated interest rates and the illegal practices many use as they seek to bilk and cheat already poor people. The housing industry needs help and the stimulus programs are offering tangible programs that are reliving the burdens of many home owners and allowing many to save their homes.
Although Food Stamps are limited to some that previously had them the program has now been reorganized and more benefits are available. Nothing is perfect and those that have lost Food Stamps there has been a well looked at reason for the cutbacks. The cars for clunkers program was also a vital program for the general consumer and the car industry. However many were not eligible that had poverty-stricken incomes of less than $2,000 per month. But the Obama administration hopes to help all that live in America those living and dying in poverty and those that struggle day to day the poor and the rich.
Just how can rich people also suffer during an economic crisis? When the rich and the not so poor suffer and have economic difficulties does this also affect the general consumer? Who will help us understand these problems and find economic equity based on compassion and love for all people? Are the poorest of the poor still low on the totem pole?
Can You Kill Poverty?
I stood looking up at the sky and thinking
of the spirit as this is where my immediate help
came from. Meanwhile the poor were all around
me. I embraced self as I also saw a sop and not meat.
I wondered then was poverty the same thing as
being poor? Could you be poverty stricken and
not be poor? What came first? Was poverty a
sustained situation of poorism?
Was poverty a state of mind while being poor was
being without money to go on vacations and the
need to go to the Food Bank in order to eat?
Well will poverty always be with us?
The Bible notes that the poor will always be here. Is
being poor to me the same as being poor to you? I then
considered that most of the poor have historically
come by way of some means of exploitation.
Logically then if you remove the urge to exploit already
poor people can we eliminate poverty? I beat back a
rude person that exploited my labor power however
I cursed not and smooth soft words prevailed.
Then God saw fit to see me through. I then realized
that this is just a little while. And I have always had
what I needed. Thus this poverty or state of being poor
may not be so wretched after all.
The rich man thought the poor were crazy that looked
that way. However the poor but rich in knowledge and
Truth knew this was the way home. And at home there
were many mansions. Someone had also gone before me.
