The grisly rooms are seen as the lowest of the U.S. housing ladder, only just above a cardboard box.
In tiny rooms with paper-thin walls and nylon sheets, vulnerable Americans are making their homes for a few hundred bucks a month.
Many of the people taking advantage of the rock-bottom charges have been made redundant during the recession.
The motels have strict rules. Drugs are banned, but alcohol is allowed.
Rent must be paid on time, but every 28 days guest must clear everything out of their rooms and check in again so as not break hotel licensing rules.
There is no room service and guests have to clean their rooms and wash their own sheets.
But the popularity of what should be temporary accommodation is apparently causing problems for police.
Officers in Dickson, Tennessee, said there are motels there that have had the same people living in them for years.Police said the city’s two live-in motels are keeping them very busy and they have responded to almost 250 emergency calls between them in the past year.911 calls have included reports of assault, meth labs and recently even murder.
‘I’m sure it is the economy. A lot of people can’t afford their homes no more,’ Detective Sergeant James Lyell of the Dickson Police Department told local station News Channel 5.
Chief Ricky Chandler believes the motel population is creating an unsafe environment.
‘It’s not like a regular motel where someone stops overnight and then leaves,’ he told the local station.
‘This brings in people, friends, relatives, etc. And when you bring those in, that potentially increases the problem.’ – Mail Online
In order to make the international currency acceptable, the Bilderberger Group knows that you must push the masses to the edge so that they are willing to accept anything that might bring relief.
The government also reported that the unemployment rate remained at 9.1 percent. It was the weakest jobs report since September 2010.
Stocks tumbled on the news. The Dow Jones industrial average sank more than 200 points in afternoon trading.
Total payrolls were unchanged in August, the first time since 1945 that the government has reported a net job change of zero. Economists warned that the economy can’t keep growing indefinitely if hiring remains stalled.
“Underlying job growth needs to improve immediately in order to avoid a recession,” said HSBC economist Ryan Wang.
Fears that the United States will slip back into recession have been rising since the government reported over the summer that the economy barely grew in the first half of the year. Consumer and business confidence has been sapped by the political standoff over the federal debt limit, a downgrade in the U.S. government’s credit rating and a debt crisis in Europe.
Job growth had already been sputtering before it stalled completely last month. The economy produced an average 166,000 a month in the first quarter, 105,000 a month in the second quarter and just 28,000 a month so far in the third quarter, said John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo.
The dispiriting job numbers for August will put more pressure on the Federal Reserve, President Barack Obama and Congress to find ways to stimulate the economy. So far, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke has been reluctant to try a third round of bond purchases designed to jolt the economy by further lowering long-term interest rates.
Obama next week will deliver a rare address to a joint session of Congress to introduce a plan for creating jobs and boosting economic growth. He is facing criticism within his own party, particularly from black lawmakers who say he hasn’t done enough to help chronic unemployment in black communities.
The unemployment rate for black men jumped a full percentage point in August to 18 percent. That’s the highest level for that group since March 2010. Unemployment for all black people increased from 15.9 percent in July to 16.7 percent last month.
But Obama’s unlikely to win support for any stimulus spending from congressional Republicans, who say the president’s economic policies have failed. They want deeper spending cuts and less government regulation.
On Friday, Obama took a step toward winning their support. He directed the Environmental Protection Agency to abandon rules that would have tightened health-based standards for smog. Congressional Republicans and some business leaders have said the proposed rules would have cost jobs.
The weakness in employment was underscored by revisions to the jobs data for June and July. Collectively, those figures were lowered to show 58,000 fewer jobs added. The downward revisions were all in government jobs. – Google Hosted News

Well, “the greatest nation on earth” is about to get a massive wake up call. We are up to our eyeballs in debt and we are bleeding jobs, businesses and wealth at an astounding pace. Our economy is dying right in front of our eyes, and most Americans have been so “dumbed-down” that they don’t even realize what is happening.
But what most Americans do know is that things are “bad” and they want someone to “fix” things. They know that something is “not right” and they want things to go back to the way things used to be. The longer it takes for things to return to “normal”, the angrier they are going to get.
The following are 16 statistics which prove that the American people are absolutely seething with anger right now….
#1 A new Washington Post poll has found that a whopping 78 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the way this country’s political system is working”.
#2 That same poll found that only 26 percent of Americans believe that the federal government can solve the economic problems that we are now facing.
#3 Gallup says that Barack Obama’s job approval rating has hit an all-time low of 39%.
#4 According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Congress has a disapproval rating of 82%.
#5 A new Rasmussen survey has found that 85 percent of Americans believe that members of Congress “are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people.”
#6 That same survey found that 46 percent of the American people believe that most members of Congress are corrupt. That figure was a new all-time high.
#7 According to a different Rasmussen survey, only 17 percent of Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.
#8 A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll discovered that 73 percent of the American people believe that the nation is “on the wrong track”.
#9 A recent poll taken by Rasmussen found that 68 percent of Americans believe that we are actually in a recession right now.
#10 According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans that lack confidence in U.S. banks is now at an all-time high of 36%.
#11 U.S. consumer confidence is now at its lowest level in 30 years.
#12 According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, 90 percent of Americans believe that the economy is performing poorly.
#13 That same poll found that approximately 80 percent of Americans believe that it is “difficult” to find a job these days.
#14 According to one recent poll, 39 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. economy has now entered a “permanent decline”.
#15 Another recent survey found that 48 percent of Americans believe that it is likely that another great Depression will begin within the next 12 months.
So why doesn’t the government step in and spend a whole bunch of money and make everything all better?
Well, the problem is that we have done this time after time before and now we are broke.
We have been living way, way beyond our means for decades and now the bills are coming due. – Read story in its entirety at The Economic Collapse Blog
[ The Coming of the Son of Man ] “Then there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and there will be anguish on the earth among nations bewildered by the roaring sea and waves.”
You’ve seen the signs in the heavenly three, and that of the “roaring sea and waves” is representative of the people roaring, and the waves of discontent they ripple their governments with. As the financial collapse has effected all nations because all followed suit, so to will all feel the ripples of discontent as the domino effect takes place.
Where past greed by the Egyptian government is the cause of the Egyptian crisis, the United States, though also a government that has fuel greed among the elite, and squandered the wealth of its citizens by treating them as second class subservient workers to fuel the pocketbooks of other nations, it will fall into discontent because of its large debt being called upon to be paid to the nations it has borrowed from.
As the hidden insolvency comes to light due to the coming revelation that the gold reserve is depleted, all programs will be cut, and when no money is being used to quell those on hard times, the people will take to the streets and follow the pattern set by Egypt, because EGYPT is the setting for the reflection of the past when Moses delivered Yahweh’s children out of slavery.
Satan will lose this throne and gain another in the his installment to that of the European Union whom will issue the World currency that will soon come into existence.
You are each watching the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle fall into place.
Thousands of unemployed waited overnight, camping out in their business suits and office heels and braving the tormenting heat in Atlanta to stand in line for a job fair Thursday. Authorities treated 20 people for heat exhaustion as they struggled to keep the line moving and get people moved inside.
The incredible turnout at the job fair comes on the heels of the state labor commissioner’s announcement that Georgia’s jobless rate rose.
The state unemployment rate increased to 10.1 percent in July from the 9.9 percent in June. The unemployment rate for African-Americans stands at 15.9 percent, far above the national rate of 9.1 percent.
July marks the 48th consecutive month that Georgia has exceeded the national unemployment rate.
The line was full of hopefuls who waited for hours in a line that wrapped around the Atlanta Technical College where the event was held.
The For the People Jobs Initiative, hosted by U.S. Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson and sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus, is a series of job fairs and town halls at some of the urban areas hit hardest by unemployment and the financial crisis.
The enormous turnout in Georgia created miles of traffic that clogged southwest Atlanta. – ABCNews
As the world falls apart, Dawn Lucifer’s last ditch effort at trying to save his prized country which is the USA will not be successful. The printing of one and a half trillion dollars to bail out failed and failing banks as well as mortgaging firms will cause a complete collapse of the United States economy. This in turn will start the domino effect of toppling other nations economies that purchase the bonds to cover the rising debt of the new trillion and a half that will be used to try and halt the present financial crisis in the USA market. This will prompt the European Union to take steps in trying to stabilize the world economy by coming to the United States aid. In essence this will be the first step in bringing the USA under the umbrella of its benefactor and force Dawn Lucifer to complete the prophecy as outlined within the Word of our grand Father and Mother Yahweh. It will be an event that will change the world as you all now know it to be.
CNN reviews the staggering number of Americans on food stamps. The video explains how those in poverty that rely on the government program are helpless to attain non-edible necessities which are not covered.
While 46 million people are on food stamps another sign of rampant poverty is the outbreak of homeless people making new homes in makeshift shelters in forests around the nation.
These villages of destitute people are often given the name “Tent City”. Recently, Tent City In Lakewood, NJ was covered in the UK’s Daily Mail news paper.
The sad thing is most people go about their daily lives not even knowing this happening. Tens of thousands of people shop in the Brick shopping plaza on a daily basis oblivious to the struggles and plights of their fellow Americans about one mile away.
Even sadder is instead of helping these people out, NJ has fought all the way to the supreme court to force these people to leave this location.
The government, in fact, has been fighting for 4 years to force these people to be removed. – Alexander Higgins Blog

The number of Americans using the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — more commonly referred to as food stamps — shot to an all-time high of 45.8 million in May, the USDA reported. That’s up 12% from a year ago, and 34% higher than two years ago.
The program provides monthly benefits to low-income individuals and families, which they can use at stores that accept SNAP benefits.
To qualify for food stamps, an individual’s income can’t exceed $1,174 a month or $14,088 a year — an amount that is 130% of the national poverty level.
The average food stamp benefit was $133.80 per person and $283.65 per household in May.
The highest concentration of food stamp users were in California, Florida, New York and Texas — where more than 3 million residents in each state received food stamps in May.
he rise in food stamp use comes as the U.S. job market continues to sputter, and food pricesacross the country climb.
Unemployment Benefits at Risk
But a spike in food stamp users in Alabama may have been responsible for pushing total usage unusually higher in May. Following a series of devastating storms, many residents received disaster assistance under the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the USDA said. Food stamp use in the state surged from 868,813 in April to 1,762,481 in May. – CNN Money
Shared with our Ministry by the Holy Family in 2007 in regards to the coming economic collapse: Satan sees all of these things about to give birth, yet he’s powerless to get his world rulers in synch. He seeks to do the opposite of what Father has laid forth in prophecy of the Word. In a last ditch effort to try and save his kingdom, he’ll walk straight into Father’s plan for the anti-Christ. Satan will take steps to try and rectify the world economy, but he’ll fail miserably.

Sporting a brand new unemployment rate of just under 5%, the current Mexican economy is humming, people are buying homes and people are working. In fact, the small business community of Mexico is creating jobs and a need for workers so fast that from only California nearly 300,000 illegals have repatriated themselves to Mexico, just to do those jobs “that Americans never would.”
The news, according to a report at the Monterey County Herald, means that illegal immigrants are now leaving California for greener pastures – in Mexico.
“It’s now easier to buy homes on credit, find a job and access higher education in Mexico,” said Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, Mexican consul general in Sacramento, the Herald reports. “We have become a middle-class country.”
According to the Herald:
An estimated 300,000 undocumented immigrants have left California since 2008, though the remaining 2.6 million still make up 7 percent of the population and 9 percent of the labor force, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.
The best-paying jobs for those returning to their native Mexico can be found in the construction industry, as that nation is building new homes, factories and production facilities.
“Put that side by side with American construction trends since President Obama came to office,” McCullough writes, “and the contrast is stunning.”
He then asks readers: “Do you realize that America has the worst economy on our continent?”
Not only does Mexico now have lower unemployment than the United States, its economy is growing at a much faster pace than America’s. – Examiner.com
Keep in mind that this war is fought on two fronts. 1. It is a spiritual battle that involves weather and other related phenomena to cause destruction and widespread desolation. 2. It is fought by using mankind as its own worst enemy. Mankind has helped to bring much of the disasters now happening. Father is simply helping things progress much more quickly.
The bowls of wrath are tribulation (i.e., a state of great trouble or suffering.) It is not intended to serve as a like scenario of the global flood by causing total destruction. That comes with the cup of wrath. The cup is poured out upon the earth just as the rains were at the great flood. At this time, people are experiencing great trouble and are suffering from the bowls of wrath that are given as a sign that the Great Tribulation has arrived. Read Revelation.
There things occur but the masses are not repentant. Father is revealing Her great power over nature and Her intervention into world governments affairs, but only those that are perceptive are aware of what’s happening. Each move on the chess board in the tribulation period is designed to fulfill the prophecies Father inspired to the writers of the Word long ago.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 418,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 410,000 from a previously reported 405,000.
“We’re just stuck in this trend between 410,000 and 430,000. Generally we’re just really not seeing any improvement but also not much worsening,” said Jeffrey Greenberg, an economist with Nomura Securities in New York.
Stock index futures held earlier gains after the data, while the dollar extended losses against the euro.
The claims data covered the survey period for the closely watched nonfarm payrolls count for July, which will be released on August 5.
Initial claims fell 11,000 between the June and July survey periods, suggesting a modest improvement in payrolls after June’s paltry 18,000 gain.

How long will the USA unemployed workers numbering in the millions remain docile, before unrest becomes a reality and the beast is forced to declare marshal law? 2011 will tell the story.
(Reuters) – U.S. jobs growth ground to a near halt in June as employers hired the fewest workers in nine months, frustrating hopes the economy would bounce back quickly from a slowdown in the first half of the year.
Nonfarm payrolls rose only 18,000, the Labor Department said on Friday. It was the weakest reading since September and below even the most pessimistic forecast in a Reuters poll of economists.
The dismal report, which showed the unemployment rate climbing to a six-month high of 9.2 percent, stood in stark contrast with recent data on manufacturing and retail sales that had shown activity starting to perk up.
“This report has dashed hopes that the economy was about to accelerate again,” said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight in Lexington, Massachusetts. “It is showing a much bleaker picture than other indicators and we must hope that it is overstating the extent of the slowdown.”
Investors, who had positioned for a fairly strong number after a bullish reading on private hiring from payrolls processor ADP, took a dim view of the report and sold U.S. stocks. Global equities retreated from five-week highs and oil prices slumped.
But prices for Treasury debt rallied on views the Federal Reserve would keep overnight interest rates near zero well into next year. The dollar rose against a broad basket of currencies as investors turned risk averse.
Adding to the weak tenor of the report, the department said the economy created 44,000 fewer jobs in April and May than previously thought.
The USA is an important pawn in Dawn Lucifer’s hand, and when it falls, it will affect every nation on this planet by its abrupt demise. The EU will grow strong in support, and it will try to resurrect the USA as one of its union members. In this shift of world power the EU will become the superpower it has longed to attain, but it will only be a mere image of what was the beast. Dawn Lucifer will then be forced to shift his mind and energy to making that image of the beast his central pawn against Father’s side on the war chess board. But first, the USA must suffer Father’s bowls of wrath to bring it to its knees. However, this does not rule out the Cherubic Order’s work elsewhere that’s been going on during this tribulation, but the USA will suffer far more than any other country as it is swiftly brought down from on high by Father.
FROM CNN’s Jack Cafferty: For the first time maybe since the Vietnam War or certainly since the civil rights movement, there are some darkening storm clouds on the civility horizon. A growing number of voices are continuing to suggest that if this economy doesn’t turn around, and people can’t start feeling optimistic about their futures again, we could be headed for some ugly scenarios. A new CNN poll says 48 percent of Americans think the country is headed for another Great Depression in the next twelve months. That is a stunning number.
James Carville, who in 1992 told Bill Clinton, “It’s the economy stupid,” says the current economy is so bad, there is a heightened risk of civil unrest. And unless things start changing for the better, it’s a distinct possibility.
Our country is bankrupt and our government refuses to do anything about it. Unemployment is stuck above 9 percent. Millions of Americans are out of work, some for a number of years now. The value of peoples’ homes is sinking below the break-even line. In the most recent jobs report, more than half of the private sector jobs that were added were at McDonald’s.
For young people coming out of the nation’s colleges and universities, their families having invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in their education, the outlook is grim.
Add in the early record breaking heat in the cities in the East and we might not even have to wait until 2012. It could become a long, hot, ugly summer.
The United States said that the Egyptian government should have respected the people that were protesting. but when it happens here, will the U.S. hold that view. or will they use force against their citizens to try and regain control? That control will never again be under this present government. The people of the United States are destined to come under the new Rome’s citizenship.
If you do not want to be caught in the bedlam of the cities, there is still some time left. Group together and buy rural property where you can form a community and grow crops for sustenance. Try to obtain property with a fresh water supply… above ground. Build your shelter homes beneath the ground. Eventually Satan’s new rule will be crushed. If you are fortunate, and though you might have missed the first Rapture, there is a chance for a second one. By then you should have come to the conclusion that you were taught the Truth. Seek Yahweh and Christ with a clean heart. Pray for deliverance from this pit you are presently in.
June 6, 2011 – NEW YORK – America clocked up a record last week. The latest drop in house prices meant that the cost of real estate has fallen by 33% since the peak – even bigger than the 31% slide seen when John Steinbeck was writing The Grapes of Wrath. Unemployment has not returned to Great Depression levels but at 9.1% of the workforce it is still at levels that will have nerves jangling in the White House. The last president to be re-elected with unemployment above 7.2% was Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The US is a country with serious problems. Getting on for one in six depend on government food stamps to ensure they have enough to eat. The budget, which was in surplus little more than a decade ago, now has a deficit of Greek-style proportions. There is policy paralysis in Washington. The assumption is that the problems can be easily solved because the US is the biggest economy on the planet, the only country with global military reach, the lucky possessor of the world’s reserve currency, and a nation with a proud record of re-inventing itself once in every generation or so. All this is true and more. US universities are superb, attracting the best brains from around the world. It is a country that pushes the frontiers of technology. So, it may be that the US is about to emerge stronger than ever from the long nightmare of the sub-prime mortgage crisis. The strong financial position of American companies could unleash a wave of new investment over the next couple of years. Let me put an alternative hypothesis. America in 2011 is Rome in 200AD or Britain on the eve of the first world war: an empire at the zenith of its power but with cracks beginning to show. The experience of both Rome and Britain suggests that it is hard to stop the rot once it has set in, so here are the a few of the warning signs of trouble ahead: military overstretch, a widening gulf between rich and poor, a hollowed-out economy, citizens using debt to live beyond their means, and once-effective policies no longer working. The high levels of violent crime, epidemic of obesity, addiction to drugs and pornography and excessive use of energy may be telling us something: the US is in an advanced state of cultural decadence. Empires decline for many different reasons but certain factors recur. There is an initial reluctance to admit that there is much to fret about, and there is the arrival of a challenger (or several challengers) to the settled international order. In Spain’s case, the rival was Britain. In Britain’s case, it was America. In America’s case, the threat comes from China.
Is there a diabolical plot being hatched that is slowly enabling the government to take control of key positions within the nation’s private sector? How can the beast keep itself afloat in a deathbed economy and a nonexistent gold reserve that is more protected to hide that secret than it is to protect the few bars of gold that are mixed in with the fake gold? How much longer can Satan keep blinders on the eyes of those on his Titanic Beast that is slowly sinking into the abyss of agony?
Psalm 48:6 “Trembling seized them there, agony like that of a woman in labor,”
The residents of the United States are presently feeling the labor pains, and “labor” is mirrored in the loss of jobs that is causing the domino effect as the U.S. economy continues its collapse into the pit of despair.
Isaiah 13:8 “They will be horrified; pain and agony will seize [them]; they will be in anguish like a woman in labor. They will look at each other, their faces flushed with fear.”
Satan asks this question, because children, no one dominates our Warrior Father Yahweh:
Psalm 13:2 “How long will I store up anxious concerns within me, agony in my mind every day? How long will my enemy dominate me?”
For as long as it takes to make a footstool out of your children Satan.
As the U.S. economy falls apart and millions of Americans descend into despair we are seeing some really shocking things start to happen all over America. The mainstream media keeps telling us that crime is under control, but they are also the ones that keep telling us that we are in the midst of an “economic recovery”. Unfortunately, the truth is that the economy is slowly dying. Today, an all-time record 44 million Americans are on food stamps. That number is 18 million higher than it was just four years ago. When people can’t get jobs and when people feel deprived they get desperate. The incidents that you are about to see and read about below are very disturbing. Many American communities are rapidly turning into war zones. Sadly, it is mostly young people that are involved in the crimes and the violence that are now sweeping America.

Difficult Times Ahead
1 But know this: difficult times will come in the last days. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to the form of religion but denying its power. Avoid these people!
While I was surfing through the various news sites this morning (Friday, March 18), I came across this story from the Los Angeles Times about the apparent suicide of a maintenance worker for Costa Mesa, CA. It seems that Costa Mesa is laying off nearly half of its employees and intending to outsource the work. Of course, the layoff notices have gone out, even though the city is still trying to figure out exactly what they are doing.
Have you or has someone you know been affected by unemployment and financial hardships during this Great Tribulation?
Matthew 24:21 For at that time there will be great tribulation, the kind that hasn’t taken place from the beginning of the world until now and never will again!
Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.”
The Definition of Murder
1. To kill (another human) unlawfully.
2. To kill brutally or inhumanly.
3. To put an end to; destroy: murdered their chances.
4. To spoil by ineptness; mutilate: a speech that murdered the English language.
5. Slang To defeat decisively; trounce.
Not a single one of us has any right to take the life of another person, or ourselves and suicide is murder of oneself. (i.e. definition: To put an end to; destroy) But how do you convince someone who has no hope, not to commit suicide?
You do not say to yourself, “Well it’s his life and he has the right to take it if he wants.” Because our lives are NOT our own, but belong to our heavenly Father Yahweh who is our Creator.
You tell them the truth.
For those who believe in life after death and heaven and hell, most believe that when someone commits suicide that they still end up in heaven. That is not necessarily true. While Father is the final judge on what happens to any soul that passes over because She knows all things and reads the depths of our hearts, there could be some circumstances in which the person is forgiven, but this is not a guarantee.
In all truthfulness and in simplest terms, to commit suicide it to murder oneself and murder is a vile crime and those who commit vile crimes end up in the Abyss; which is confinement in complete darkness and total separation from God. If you have a hard time imagining this, think about being in solitary confinement in prison and then add to the scenario that the room you’re confined to is so pitch black that you cannot see your hand in front of your face; and on top of that, you have absolutely no interaction with another human being; for eternity.
When you look at any given situation and compare it in all truthfulness and honesty whatever it may be that you’re experiencing on earth, to an eternity spent in the Abyss, there is nothing on earth that would compare or could possibly be as bad as what the punishment would be for the crime of murder. And if you’re not certain that God truly does exist…do you really want to take that chance?
If you don’t believe, it’s a roll of the dice. Temporary sadness and hardship here on earth, or an eternity spent in darkness. Because remember, here on earth, everything really is temporary. We all go through a series of ups and downs, goo…d times and bad times. Sometimes the bad seem to outweigh the good – but they are most certainly not for eternity.
So if you’re contemplating suicide – the murder of yourself – I’ll tell you plainly and truthfully, just don’t do it. Fear God. Know that She is righteous and that while She reserves the right to pass judgment on all of us, She will also wipe every tear away when the time comes. Until then, endure and keep moving forward with your eyes set on Her and She will redeem you and love you in ways you never imagined possible.
THE POPULAR uprisings across the Middle East are sparking similar unrest in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with youth groups and workers in that country now calling for a “day of rage” demonstration in the capital, Riyadh, on March 11th.
Already there have been protests in the city of Qatif and other towns in the country’s oil-rich Eastern Province demanding, among other things, the release of political prisoners and a raft of social reforms. There are also reports of prominent Shia clerics being detained by the Saudi Sunni authorities, and security forces mobilising in anticipation of further protests.
Sadek al-Ramadan, a human rights activist in al-Asha, Eastern Province, said: “People here are watching closely the protest movements across the region, which are tapping into long-held demands for reforms in Saudi Arabia.” Al-Ramadan said that there are “deep frustrations” in Saudi society over high levels of poverty, unemployment, poor housing and perceived widespread corruption among the rulers of the world’s top oil exporter whose gross domestic product last year is estimated at $622 billion.
Those that are suffering and those that have suffered over the thousands of years since mankind sinned, and much of it from Yahweh’s own natural order of things, and from the sinful desires that mankind has rooted their twisted desires within, they are all on the wide spacious path that offers no protection from the evil effects of this world. Mankind became defiant to Yawheh’s counsel and warning to remain obedient, and death was the promise for not following through and obeying His words. And now, like a deep bleeding wound that has festered and opened back up to disease and drains out the life of its victim, mankind is slowly dying from the sin that was warned against. When the wrath comes, it in itself will put those who remain defiant – out of their misery. Sad, but so true. There is no future without Yahweh, and this world in general is without the care of our Creator. Just look at the weather now ravaging this planet. It is Yahweh’s fury in action.
In 2008, Michelle, a 53-year-old Illinois resident with 19 years experience in information technology, became another casualty of the Great Recession. More than a year later, after a long and fruitless job search, she finally heard from a headhunter who thought she sounded like a great fit for a post he was looking to fill.
But when Michelle told him how long she had been out of work, the headhunter turned apologetic: His client, he said, wouldn’t accept people who had been unemployed for more than six months. Michelle would go on to stay jobless for so long that she ultimately exhausted all her unemployment benefits, and, for the first time in her life, was forced to apply for food stamps and welfare.
Michelle’s tale was recounted at a recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) meeting devoted to the issue of hiring discrimination against the unemployed. As the commission found, Michelle’s experience is far from unique. No one officially tracks how many job openings explicitly bar the unemployed, but several news reports since last summer have uncovered numerous online job postings that require candidates be employed during the application process. One such listing was posted by the cellphone giant Sony Ericsson–a move the company later called a “mistake.”
