  • Why is it always poor people who create problems?

    As a student of international geopolitics, it's hard not to notice that the problems in the world - mostly - are due to poor people. They migrate, they steal, they sleep on the street, they rise up against the oppressor, etc. You've all seen it.

    Even in rich countries like America, poor people bring down the average and make us look bad. We're No. 1 baby!

    In the USSR I learned they tried - again - to help poor people (snore) by resettling them in Siberia. These involuntary settlements had the appearance of "normal" settlements: people lived in families, and there was slightly more freedom of movement; however, that was only permitted within a small specified area. All settlers were overseen by the secret police; once a month a person had to register at a local law enforcement office.

    The Brits did this in Austria too. Perhaps it's time we send the poor somewhere else. It creates jobs for other poor to relocate them, lifting them out of their dystopian squalor for a blessed moment, and it just sets a nice example. Buck up! This is how nice people act.
    If I have seen further, it is by standing on the heads of others.

    Well God made them poor because they are bad people.

      Our Progressive Republican Mayors Association had very active program a few years ago to buy homeless people bus tickets. We didn't bother knowing where they were headed, just out of our town. Inevitably lots of the dirty rag tags ended up in cities with Democratic Mayors. Of course they whined. We're much more secretive about the program now. One thing that united us Republican Mayors was our dislike of these sorry losers.

        Since the poor are not contributing to society, why don't we just send them to Mexico? We'll buy each one a Spanish phrasebook, a sombrero, a poncho, a bottle of Tapatio sauce, and a bus ticket to Guadalajara, then adios muchachos! Let the Mexicans deal with our bad hombres for a change.

        A few months of that and Mexico will be begging us to let them pay for the wall.

          Jesus had a novel way of saying the poor are hopeless losers. In Matt. 26:11, John 12:11 and Mark 14:17 He said, "The poor will always be with you." He is saying they are a problem and is admonishing us to leave them behind.

          President Lydon Johnson championed "The War of Poverty." We lost that war. What was created instead is a land of opportunity for people who want to succeed. Americans with lots of assets and good incomes need to protect themselves.

            It's funny how when "the oppressed" land they continue to be oppressed in their new "chosen" home. Who sent them? By what circuitous route did they arrive? Jesus knew that by creating internal efficiencies everyone would benefit and so it has proved to be true. Satan wants everyone to suffer, fewer and fewer machines, more and more dragging stuff around by hand, babies, babies, babies and then more babies; how many babies could be replaced by one pipeline? Vatican economics require maximum babies, minimum food, nothing for anyone and a big fat city full of ogres stuffing their loins with knowledge. They know what they're doing. They knew about Johnson's "war" and knew that the more catholics in a country the poorer it would become. Suits them just fine.

            But makes me sick.

              Mr. Faith, it's infuriating. We've tried to stop them being poor, we've tried to stop them being bad, nothing works. The Soviet labor camps at least gave them a job, which is more than can be said for ultraleftist welfare states.

              Sister yes! It's as if they bring all their problems with them (and lower house prices). Then their problems become our problems, as if we have anything to do with it.

                Yes, indeed, dear Brother Mayor Hold; that's exactly what the good was saying. Mind you, there will be some who will twist words and distort the truth, but anybody can see the real truth — if they look hard enough!

                Well, it's all just too bad that the war on poverty was lost, but as they say in the inner, urban neigborhoods: "dem's da breaks". You're so right about how we need to protect our assets and incomes. Goodness only knows that poor people have a distorted view on reality, as they assume that they have a right to our wealth through "social services" (also known as socialism and communism.) Thankfully, will help us to shield our prosperity from those vicious vagrants, and to bless us with even more of it — all because of our faithfulness to !

                  Are there any particular geopolitical regions you've noticed exemplifying Christ's teaching? It often seems that the more idols there are the worse general conditions become. It could be lots and lots of different idols or the same one repeated over and over again.

                    Sister, I'm more of a general expert not any one time or place specifically. But I do admire historical leaders bold enough to take on the weak and poor. Yes, Jesus said they'll always be with us, but He changed His mind fulfilled the Law about some things (Matthew 5:17). I like to think He will write one more book.

                    How about yourself? Do you follow the news or keep to lady stuff?

                      I don't especially follow the news and have never had a television, preferring if I want to know what somewhere's like to go there and see for myself. Some locations require interesting internal travel, even using public transport, to get where you want to go and along the way all sorts of idolatry may be seen. South East Asia is particularly advanced in this respect. It's inadvisable to take what passes for a taxi due to (when I enquired) the fastest vehicle having right of way on a single lane road. A taxi looks like this [right] and they all seem to know how fast each model will go. By accelerating to the vehicle's maximum speed, where two are approaching on a single width road, the faster one will have right of way and they know which one that will be. The slower one will have to drive off the road, also at it's maximum speed, for which reason I'd suggest the bus. It's never the fastest but is much heavier than any taxi.

                      Africa is different. You really need a chauffeur familiar with the local faces. Idolatry there is quite different and the per capita GDP often lower than Asia so the problems can begin early in your visit. American cars are better here, having sufficient momentum to get through most obstacles and better springs to handle road conditions. Although idols are rampant, they are less formal [left] than the elephant with 20 arms or the moon idol and sometimes sold as fashion accessories for tourists. Demons have a pretty free hand in Africa with missionaries from various false denominations making things worse. Either they bring demons of their own or claim that demons don't exist. The result is utter chaos. An armed chauffeur can be booked in advance and can meet you at the airport. There are also trains and I like rail travel but the demons produce poverty and poverty produces problems, even on trains.

                        Travel can broaden the mind unfortunately. It's a risk one can insure against with hired transport and luxury accommodation but still one can find oneself at a moral fork in the road, so to speak.

                        I find it helpful in such situations to put myself in the mind of the poor man. What would he do? What wouldn't he do??? The thuggish poor man dreams of taking my wealth and crushing any hope I may have. Thus we must be more devious and act more ruthlessly than the wretch.

                          I like what Mayor Hold said about Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty. If he had just treated that war the same as he did the one he started in Vietnam, it would've decreased the welfare rolls by quite a bit. As it is, the only poor blacks he managed to kill were the ones he drafted and sent to, yes, Vietnam.
                          I was sinking deep in sin far from the peaceful shore,
                          Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more;
                          But the Master of the Sea heard my despairing cry,
                          From the waters lifted me, now safe am I!
