ObamaCare

I’ve been trying to come up with a post regarding ObamaCare and what it means for us. Without getting too deep into the jargon, here’s the gist:

“Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead.”

Now…what does that mean in plain English?

1. It places a tariff, which is a white Word Salad Term meaning: Tax on imports/exports like tea, coffee, sugar, etc, on hiring Ameriklan citizens.

2. It benefits new immigrants that are ALLOWED and PERMITTED to come to this country for slave labour wages. Side note: Did you know that “illegal” immigrants are given FREE training in construction, farming, building, masonry, etc, FREE English classes, FREE housing, FREE green cards and passports, FREE stipends (money), FREE driver’s licenses and other perks just so they can knock us out of the workforce? No? Well, it’s true. Our labour is no longer wanted or needed. 

3. It cripples the black community even further because those of us that do have jobs will be on the chopping block for anyone “illegal” that is willing to work for 2.00 an hour.

4. It destabilizes any and all black households by making us vulnerable to home foreclosure.

5. It sets up our youth for further crime like: selling drugs to make ends meet and stealing food, diapers and clothing.

6. It further enriches the privatized prisons which are waiting for our young men and women that are of reproductive age.

7. It sets back those of us that have built up SOME wealth (like property) so our children cannot inherit or benefit from our hard work.

8. It places black people, as a whole, front row center as a target of white rage. What do I mean by that? Whites, who love to pretend, especially in front of us, that their lives are so much better, are secretly suffering in silence. Once the pinnacle of success, they face uncertainty and homelessness and hunger. When the harsh realization that their AmeriKlan Dream is no more, they’ll lash out at the chocolate-covered white man in the White House. Since he is well protected, any chocolate-covered person will do. That means more hatred, more racially inspired crime and more incentive to come after us.

Businesses across the country are barely staying afloat and Congress will leave them no choice but to lay off employees who will cost them more money under the new healthcare mandates. I’ve come to the innerstanding that black unemployment is approximately 25-30%. With ObamaCare taking effect in 2014, which i’d like to remind you is only several months away, what can we do to fight this?

Please read my post titled: Dropping out of the System.

1. Learn a life skill. Any life skill. You will need it. What’s a life skill? If I have to explain, well….

2. If you have a table and a window, you can grow herbs and some vegetables in any sized house or apartment! For those of you that have a backyard, what are you waiting for?

3. Develop a bartering community with other blacks. I sound like a broken record. You will need help. You cannot do this on your own.

4. Learn the power of herbs and roots. Again, a broken record. The pharmacies WILL NOT be there for you much longer. Many illnesses are reversible. Please do your research and learn to heal yourself.

5. Stock up on “luxury items” and food, food, food. What is a luxury item? Toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, diapers, feminine products…you get the idea. But Negress, I’m broke! Whenever you go shopping, grab an extra 2-3 cans of beans. In 6 months, you’ll have a great supply.

6. Learn to can food. Again, no excuses.

These simple tips are doable for EVERYONE. Instead of buying Oreo cookies and a milkshake, buy 10.00 worth of beans and rice. Instead of lusting after the newest sneakers, buy 200.00 dollars worth of food and fill up those cabinets. Jay-Z’s newest album coming out? Ignore him and buy 20.00 dollars worth of fish and chicken. Again, broken record. Why are you still buying from people who look nothing like you?

Are there any more tips you’d like to help us with?

{My friend called me last month to tell me she sold ALL the furniture in her spare room, except for the cot, on Craigslist and is now using that room as a prepping room. She’s going wild! She brought can after can of soup, vegetables and beans and is going to buy more when Shoprite has a “can-can” sale. Now, that’s what I’m talking about!}
