美國新冠疫情日記06/18    Long Unemployment Lines In Alabama

          Long Unemployment Lines In Alabama


According to Labor Department statistics, more than forty-five million people have lost their jobs since the Coronavirus pandemic broke out. Yesterday we saw very long lines in front of an unemployment office in a city in Alabama. We felt so sad. Those unemployed people have to stand in line for a whole day just to talk to the unemployment office and try to get some help because they are so very helpless to face daily life.


Federal and state governments wanted to open up the country and stimulate the business activity. The real reason was to ease unemployment and restart the economy. But on the other hand, the medical community is really worried that the second wave the pandemic may come back. We are watching people in different cities just ignoring the rule to wear the masks and the keep social distance. If the second wave comes back, that will result in even more serious damage for our economy.


Today, the White House is facing another challenge. Former national security advisor John Bolton dropped bombshell in his new book saying that Trump asked China for re-election help and encouraged the Chinese government to keep building concentration camps for social dissidents. In many U.S. cities, the recent demonstrations are still going on. This is why the majority of people feel that we are in a national turmoil and still unsafe.


We are urging all the people to come to the rescue our nation. From Congress to the White House to local government, we need to overcome the corrupt politicians. The vote is in our hands and this is the only weapon we have to do it.


We adopted America as our home and our country. This is our sole responsibility and duty to do what is right. You need to look at your community, your neighbors and participate in your local elections to rebuild the country. As Abraham Lincoln said in his Gettysburg address: “For the people by the people.”


                   阿拉巴馬州的失業長龍


根據勞工部公布之數據,美國全國登記在案的失業人口已經超過四千五百萬,這是美國自有失業人數統計數據以來最高數字,昨天我們看到在阿拉巴馬州排隊申請救濟金的長龍,他們竟然等上整天都未得到答案,這些已經是山窮水盡的失業者,對他們而言,解決燃眉之急是生活問題。


白宮當局爲了解決嚴重的經濟危機,開始商業活動勢在必行,但是新冠病毒之攻擊還在進行中,全國各州新增病例還在上升,專家警告。第二波疫情可能會捲土重返, 到時可能會更無法收拾。


今天我們正在面臨前所未有之挑戰,白宮內部曾經是國安高官之波頓,近日出書說出總統濫權辱權之驚人內幕,執意要召開黨內提名群衆大會,種族歧視事件公然造成民衆劃地爲營,全國各地烽火遍地,超過大半數的國人都深感處于動盪之中。


我們呼籲全美有識之士,這是我們要共同挽救國家的時候了,在國家憲法立法之精神下,重整國會及中央地方政府之腐敗情勢,換言之,國民手中之選票是我們改變現況的唯一武器,投票是我們的權利也更是我們的義務。


今天我們大家都選擇了美國是我們安身立命的土地,我們世代生活在這裏,是我們的國,也是我們的家,這已經是我們不可坐視不管的時候了,請看看大家週圍的社區和隣居,我們更應該相互扶持、關心,讓美利堅共和國重返民主自由立國的精神。
