    When the Dem candidate ran aginst Reagn, we made no plans to protect us from GOP excesses

    When the Democratic candidate Al Gore ran against Bush we were full ofhope and failed to
    examine or prepare for a worst case scenario

    Now we see the repeat of the cuts and craziness that occured under Blue Dawg Clinton, who destroyed Glass Staegal and signed away millions of Black union jobs with,
    GATT and NAFTA.

    hundreds of thousands of Black families will now wonder how to pay their bills, now that the unemploymenrt extension received no bail out,
    no bail out for foreclosure releif

    Now when and if they destroy Medicaid, and Medicare and mess with SS

    What do we have in place to provide for millions of Black elderly?

    Now when and if they destroy welfare from state to state which will not just hurt the poor, but those just mentioned who have welfare as their only recourse after being , refused a bailout for their unemployment insurance

    What do we have in place to provide for hundreds of thousands of African Amrican families

    The Nguzo Saba is the simplest most basic aspect of Black Nationalism

    itis not just for one day out of the year, Kwanzaa on December 26

    but it is a principle of assurance and insurance to take us into the next century

    It is not the only plan , but if it is a plan that works and has elemets that can and will establish cross national saftey nets

    why not re-examine it?
    If we fail to plan we plan to fail.

    The following GOP president will build upon the gains made by Wall street and the militry industiral complex

    made during this administration, and will have massed a large cadre of blue dawgs, paid off and lobbied lovely from the acrued bonuses glreaned from the residuals of the bailous, and the colonization of the arab world.
    Interesting how the press never mentions the amount of oil under the Gaza strip.

    Slashing of basic federal, state and city safety nets will be real and swift

    For those here who have seen that great Frank Kapra movie,
    "It's a Wonderful Life"

    In several hours from now
    when the GOP house is sworn in

    we will be living in "Pottersville"

    The true corporate sesspool
    unlike anything Nixon, Reagan, or Buash could have ever dreamed of hoped for


    Point is when do we build a raft or boat to float in all that filth that will definatly fall on our communities like
    godzilla with diarrhea?

    No proft is tax free if one is vending on the street and unless one is a Vet

    or from Africa, Sri lank or Bangladesh and have had benefators lobby State and City gov for blocks of liscences, purchsed enmasse
    that aint happening

    a few dollars per week from 36 million can go along way

    but only if we forget our differences and follow the example of folks in the news, like in what is now called Egypt
    who have followed the example we gave them from the 60s,
    from folks like Dr King

    the cuts in basic government services, not welfare, not handouts, not entitlements but basic government services;

    public schools
    city colleges
    city hospitals
    public libraries
    civil service employment
    headstart
    day care
    job training
    social security
    medicaid
    medicare
    HUD
    TAP
    Pel grants for college tuitions

    will be facing massive cuts from both parties

    while bailed out corporations will be partying,
    from windfall profitsd from outsoucing and
    now; 4 wars

    Can anyone visualize the effect these cuts will have on every Black household and
    extened family in all 50 states?

    Who will provide the pool of assets and funds from which reimbursements can be drawn?

    What will be done with the pool of assets and funds that have not been dispersed?

    Who shall and shall not be the policy holders?
    Who shall be its trustees and administrators?

    There are alternatives such as benefit societies.

    True that brother True That!

    And as you know a the call is made to 411 when a house is on fire

    since ther is no EMS and no fire department,
    those
    sisters and brothers with those
    logitistical, managerial and acounting skills

    will come to the fore if enough of them care,
    not to sit and watch the community burn

    It is funny that you typed those words .... modern day insurance has its origin in fire insurance.

    I have my own biased opinions on insurance, but shall reserve those for another day.

    Let it suffice to say that before there is anything to insure, one must have property first in my opinion.
