Once upon a time in the United States of America about twenty five percent of those who lived here had fathers and mothers who did not have jobs. NO, this does not refer to Hispanics or black people, but to good old fashioned white folks. During the Depression of the 1930s, one out of four people lacked work and how to depend upon the evil government to provide work and food. I am discussing the grandparents of this win
Congress today who nonstop decry the laziness of those who are without good jobs and seek government -handouts! The concept of government assistance was born in the Depression and those who were given this money were, for the most part, people whose skin was WHITE! These were people of European heritage who had been overwhelmed by the failure of BIG BUSINESS whose follies had created an economic collapse that was the worse in our history. In other words, the grandparents of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul and Sarah Palin were the people who demanded government -handouts. Actually, blacks and Hispanics received a lower amount of aid than those shiftless whites crying and complaining that GOVERNMENT should aid the poor.
Poverty sucks. It takes away the self concept of a man or woman who cannot feed their own children. It creates within their hearts and souls a sense of failure at being a man or woman. One does not LEARN from being poor other than it sucks! What is currently happening to millions of Americans happened to their grandparents decades ago. The only lesson one can derive from poverty is that it must end. Every member of Congress must be required to provide evidence that their grand parents never received government handouts if they are allowed to vote against aid to the poor!

In an effort to clear up the situation in Yemen we offer a reader’s guide to the place known as Yemen:
1. There is a country known as Yemen.
2. In this country are people known as members of al-Qaeda.
3. In this country there is a group of people known as the Houthis who do not like the people from al-Qaeda.
4. There used to be a President named Saleh who the US supported.
5. Now Mr. Saleh is out of power and the US no longer supports him.
6. There is now a President Hadi who hates the Houthi and is now supported by the US.
7. Saudi Arabia and its allies used to like Mr. Saleh but now they like Mr. Hadi.
8. For some reason the Houthi and al-Qaeda are either helping one another while fighting one another.
9. Saudi planes bomb away and just kill anyone down there.
10. The US which sends drones to bomb away does not wish the Saudis to bomb away because they are not as accurate as a drone bomb away.
I trust you now understand who is fighting who and who the US supports– at least for today!
