Have you been hearing about people still (yes, half a year later!) not having received their stimulus checks (“Economic Impact Payments” as these tiny crumbs ironic in comparison with the trillions given to the rich are called)?
An accident? I wonder. The following article gives you a hint at tricks being used to secretly rob millions of people (yes, of course, the robbed people are never contacted and informed by the government), many of them being solid American citizens discriminated simply because when they were young (but now are old and have paid their U.S. taxes all their working lives) were many decades ago still on immigrant status (a status that has long changed since then), or because born Americans are currently married to non-citizens or to those who ages ago were not yet citizens but now are.
Ain’t it fun how the hurt committed by the anti-immigrant culture in our government hits more and more Americans as time goes by? I have even heard rumors that born Americans who got their Social Security Card while they were still immature also had it labeled as “NOT VALID FOR EMPLOYMENT” and are also excluded from the stimulus payment no matter how many ages they have been paying their taxes with their Social Security Number (SSN). I haven’t found in the “CARES” act that the “NOT VALID FOR EMPLOYMENT” label makes SSNs invalid. But the IRS definitely treats such SSNs that way, probably based on an indirect hint at what a SSN is (namely described in IRC §24(h)(7)). I wonder if those of us who spent our lives working and paying into the Social Security fund will later when we can’t work anymore and must try to retire also be excluded from our Social Security Benefits based on such game play having to do with some ancient formality crap whose status has long changed, but the change gets conveniently ignored.
Ain’t we living wonderful lives, so right and just? Able to focus on the troubles nature gives us with aging and diseases? Troubles we should deal with together rather than constantly having to struggle with immoral hurdles put up by other people, the so-called “elites”?
I was pretty sure you had never heard about this payment denial to millions of Americans. So, that’s why I shared this with you.

In a recent video, Kim Iversen takes up the simple fact I have been writing about for years that immigrants and migrants without official papers permitting their entry and/or stay in this country can be easily prevented from coming and staying by enforcing the law that forbids employers to employ them. Going beyond my peaceful prevention recommendation, she actually takes it to the next level of making the enforcement more drastic and quick and thorough to solve the undocumented immigrant “problem” (that we DON’T HAVE, it’s a red herring people, a drop in the bucket compared to the problems caused by the plutocracy!). She then gets into some of the ripples of the ripple effect this would have. Interesting to mull over and think beyond to get a better idea of the bigger picture:
Once again a great alternative to pointless cable news and entertainment for this weekend. Great videos on politics and economics helping us to become more informed and able to fight for much needed change.

Certain low wage workers nowadays are labeled illegal and non-human. They are referred to as “illegal aliens”. A label based on them working north of our southern border as opposed to south of it, even though the same business owners either employ them south of it or north of it with the exact same result: that they get the work that makes them richer done by people desperate enough to work for starvation wages under terrible working conditions.
This creates a justified worry among American-born working people that the jobs they need are taken away or hurtfully reduced in wages and benefits, destroying their American Dream. However, the flip in responsibility is brainwashed into their minds by claiming these even more desperate fellow workers from the south TAKE their jobs away, rather than that the business owners (and/or their CEOs) GIVE them away.
In the aftermath of the recent ICE raids and the outrage on both sides (one legit, the other absurd) some reasonable thoughts finally emerged. Thoughts everyone should mull over. The following video presents some of them and my commentary below goes further:
11 Year Old Girl Tearfully Pleas For Father’s Release From ICE Custody The Majority Report w/ Sam Seder
That terrible government official in the shared video above (someone I admit to call an oligarchy pig in the back of my mind) speaks of “criminal search warrants”. I must ask: How the heck do we, the people, let these power peddling corrupticians get away with criminalizing misdemeanors and labeling people as illegal? How can any honest and morally upstanding person put entering a country without a visa on the same level with committing murder, rape, or child kidnapping (the latter done by the same “police” forces who go after this supposed “crime”)?
