Better Be Glad Obama Won
OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE PHOTO BY PETE SOUZA

I’m beginning to think it doesn’t much matter whether this country plunges over the so-called fiscal cliff in two weeks. Regardless of whether Congress and the President reach some sort of accommodation over how much the “rich” will be taxed, a financial train wreck looks almost unavoidable.

Consider a few of the warning indicators that are flashing.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported that 847,000 new jobs were created in the United States in the past six months. While that’s not enough to make a meaningful dent in the unemployment numbers, it’s at least a step in the right direction, right?

Not when you read the fine print in the BLS report. When you do, you’ll discover that 73.3 percent of those new jobs are in government. That’s right; of all the new jobs created in the United States since June 1, the Labor Department says only one in four were in private enterprise. All of the rest are new government employees. No wonder government spending is going through the roof.

Speaking of government spending, in the first two months of Fiscal 2013 (which began Oct. 1), the Federal government spent $638 billion. But it collected only $346 billion in revenue. This means that it borrowed 46 cents for every dollar it disbursed.

Some of that money went to all the people who have been added to the food stamp rolls — more than 1 million in August and September alone. I haven’t seen the numbers for November yet, but I doubt if they’ll be much better. The Labor Department reports that some 350,000 people left the workforce last month — nearly three times the number who actually got jobs.

The short-term picture doesn’t look very good, does it? Well, I’m sorry to tell you that the longer-term picture is even more alarming.

The latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office are that Federal deficit spending will surpass 100 percent of the gross domestic product of this country by 2025. And that it will double from there after another 12 years, reaching almost 200 percent of GDP by 2037.

But don’t worry about these astronomical levels of government spending. We’ll never reach them. Long before that can happen, the economy is going to crash. As former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said: “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money.”

The Federal behemoth will run out of “other people’s money” long before it is gobbling up 200 percent of our GDP.

So what happens when the feathers hit the fan? What happens when unemployment soars and tax revenues fall? What happens when it becomes obvious to everyone and his brother that our massive entitlement programs can’t be sustained?

The Federal government won’t be able to borrow its way out of the mess it’s created. And it won’t be able to print its way out, either.

Oh, sure, for a while it will try to do both. That’s why I’m so certain that the dollar will continue to decline in value, while tangible assets (with gold and silver leading the list) will continue to climb.

But sooner or later, things are going to get really messy. And when they do, I hope there will be a massive repudiation of the tax-and-tax, spend-and-spend policies that brought us there.

Sadly, that’s not what happened during our last economic catastrophe. The Great Depression got blamed on capitalism. As a result, the country took a massive turn to the left under Franklin Roosevelt and his comrades.

But even the talking heads on MSNBC will have a hard time blaming the coming crisis on the right. When that day comes, conservatives should be very glad that Barrack Hussein Obama won re-election in November.

That’s why it’s so vital that we conservatives hold our ground, that we continue to defend and promote the principles we know are true and that we do everything in our power to explain the economic facts of life to our families, friends and neighbors.

At a time when the future looked even bleaker than it does today, George Washington said: “Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God.”

That’s the best advice I can offer today to help sustain you in the difficult days that lay ahead.

Oh, and one more thing. Until next time, keep some powder dry.

    Chip your a worry wort aren’t you. How many of the 350,000 who left the workforce where people who retired? How many have jobs or got jobs in companies who won contracts from State and Federal government departments? How many jobs would be lost if the government decided to stop the $billions of contracts it awards to American companies every year? How much could be saved and how many extra jobs would be lost and how many of those people have private pension plans or need to get onto welfare and at what cost to the Federal Government? How many government workers retired due to old age last year and how many have been replaced with younger people of those 847,000 new jobs were to replace retired of people who died? Which jobs are those 73.3% actually doing at what cost I’d like to know? What do those government 620,000 government workers across 50 states average 12,400 people actually do and where do they spend the 2 plus $trillion on? and what would happen if the Federal government retrenched 1 Million workers and how much would be saved in expenditure and government contracts and what type of contracts do you believe should be axed apart from Greeny type activities? How many jobs would go with all those axed government contracts?

    These and many other questions would need to be answered Chip before getting too upset with Obama.

        I am replying to you Freedom Fighter because you seem to have been there, done that. Our government is sending troops to Turkey to help fight the two-generation Assad family dictatorship and bring democracy to the people of Syria. Who really don’t want democracy. Our heroes are fighting and dying in foreign countries for those countries to have democracy. Again they really don’t want it. The Muslim Brotherhood or Al Quida will then take over and those countries are back to square one. Here in our own America we are fighting a dictator. A Muslim dictator. Why can’t we bring home our heroes to fight for freedom in our own America?

        Because Sarah to answer your last question few troops would be willing to over throw any duly elected President. Calling our current President something he isn’t won’t endear you to any clear thinking American.

        Eddie47d: “Calling our current President something he isn’t won’t endear you to any clear thinking American.” As you’ve certainly noticed, clear thinking Americans are not in the majority of Personal Liberty Digest posters. The majority here think Pres Obama is something “Bad!” They don’t agree on what kind of “Bad!” Or consider that someone would have to never sleep, and have a double attend his public appearances, to even begin to engage in all the Satanic plots he is accused of. I consider reading the postings here to be akin to visiting a zoo.

Now everyone fear Syria’s use of them on their own citizens.

        These new taxes coming up in 2013 have nothing to do with paying off the debt; those taxes were thrown upon us to further eviscerate the economy, faster than the year previous, and STILL, the left believes our leaders are there to help us. We stopped owing any reasonable debt to the Rothschild and Rockefeller families well over 100 years ago, but they always manage to threaten some politician’s family or his seat in Congress, and well, life goes on ……… down the crapper.

        Iceland had the best idea when they told Goldmann-Sachs to go pound sand. If anyone wants to get a great lesson in how these bankers work, read “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”, by John Perkins. These types of bankers aren’t the warm and fuzzy neighborhood banker types who wish to help you get into your dream house, no, these globalist bankers have made it a habit of using bribery, coercion, student demonstrations, coups, assassinations, military takeovers, and the media to get their way. Meanwhile, the average chowderhead sitting in his recliner with a beer, just thinks all this is nature running its political course and flips the channel to another mindless ball game.

        The list I just gave (bribery, coercion, student demonstrations, coups, assassinations, military takeovers, and the media) has been the plan to impose US foreign policy, for a long time, most notably since 1953 when democratically elected Mossadegh was ousted in Iran by the CIA under Operation Ajax. Why? Because Mossadegh simply wanted to nationalize his country’s oil supply to better the lives of his countrymen. Whenever any leader threatens to do that, to “mistakenly” assume that their resources actually belong to them instead of to the US or Britain, their country is labelled as a rogue or terrorist state and the troops are eventually sent in to force them to abide by US (now globalist) dictates.

        The hard core right will still sit back on their front porches, watching the flags on their front lawn in the mistaken belief that the US is the greatest force on the planet, while the left will go trusting the government to solve every problem and keep the people safe from the boogeyman.

    • steve

      gilly, in your mind it’s okay to do deficit spending and watch the economy go down the drain. is that how you run your household? do you constantly go to the bank for more money that you know you can’t repay? is that bank crazy enough to give the money to you? is your household hiring more people to do the work that you should be doing just for the sake of lower the unemployment #? these are question you need to answer. you have been eating to many bloomin onions at the back out steakhouse you sent over here.

      • Mimi

        Forgive me, but this is Obama’s grand plan… He is printing more money, and spending more, because his intention is to BANKRUPT the Country, and rebuild under One World Government. It isn’t even a secret anymore. Google it, no digging required…..

      • eddie47d

        MIMI: We can all google just about anything to prove our point such as the imminent End Of The World. Most people aren’t buying it anymore than the false claims that Martial Law was going to be enacted by the 2012 elections. There is no deliberate intent by Obama to bankrupt this nation and establish a NWO. That could happen whether a Democrat or Republican is in office because of all their unfunded pet projects

      • Kinetic1

        steve,
        Yours is a tired and oft used analogy that just isn’t relevant. You are, of course correct in your assertion that, when money is tight in your household you cut back or take another job. You either decrease the spending or increase the cash flow. Your situation (and mine) are limited. Our spending does affect our neighbors and their business’, but only to a limited degree. The forces of our household spending are not felt unless there are many, many households acting in the same manner.

        Government, on the other hand can stimulate or stall an economy with their actions. You can pay a company to come out and fill in a pothole on your driveway, and it might employ 2 workers for an afternoon. Your city, on the other hand can contract for an entire neighborhood to be repaved, and your state can contract for a stretch of freeway. The few dollars you spend will help with a few groceries, but the money paid to the city and state road crews can buy weeks or months of groceries, allowing the store to keep or even hire employees who in turn will spend their earnings, and on and on. And when the government cuts back too much, when they initiate austerity measures, well I’m sure you have seen what is happening in Spain.

        There’s little question but that the government needs to be conscious and concerned about what they spend and where they spend it, but they also need to be aware of the consequences of rapid, drastic changes. Cutting back on household spending will almost always have a positive affect in your life, but Government austerity can tank a weak economy in the blink of an eye.

        Eddie47d; If you search the Federal Reserve act of Dec.23,1013, it was President Wilson whom enacted it. Pres. Wilson’s plan was to futher the New World Order, and so is the plans of most presidents. It includes Obama. Remember the speach JFK gave not long before he was killed, warning the people about that there is certain people and organization that is trying to take over every thing. That organization is the NWO. While your at it search for the Rothchilds, Warburg, Jekyll Island, etc. And also check out the one dollar, in the eagles claw is 5 arrows. Those arrows represent the 5 Rothchilds sons. The Rothchilds, Builderburgs, Rockefellers, and others own the banks, media, entertainment industry, our presidents, and some of our Congressmen. There are some in congress that don’t like what’s happening but too afraid to do anything about it, because they would end up dead, or a family member dead. If you don’t think they won’t kill them you better think of all these wars that they finance both sides. They want a one world order, and several presidents gave speeches saying so. A good read is–Eustace Mullins book—Secrets of the Federal Reserve. Mullins did a lot of research in the library of Congress and other government institutions, and he gives references. You can read it on line free.

      • SJJolly

        So, what’s the Conservative Republican plan for dealing with the deficit / debt? Other than, basicly, to keep cutting taxes on the rich, slash regulation on big business and industry (“You can trust us. We’re rich”), greatly increase funding of the military and domestic security, and pay for it all by dumping the American middle class and working class onto the tender mercies of the free market. (“Get a job, Grandma! Pay for your own nursing home care!” “TS, disabled veteran. You knew the risks when you signed-up.”)

      • SJJolly

        Julie: There is a new world order (lower case) spawning, yes. But, it is in the boardrooms and ultra-private conferences of the international corporations, as they endlessly plot to make national governments more accomidating to corporate interests Is there some overall global plan behind it? Probably not; that would require too much thinking too far ahead.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        SJJolly, you actually approve of Americans stealing from other Americans by government?

      • http://PersonalLiberty Julie

        SJJolly; I think you better some research on the New World Order, and whom is behind it. You will find it is the big bankers, and it goes clear back into the 1800′s. You will also find that Warburg and Rothchilds were behind it. Who do you think finances all the wars, on both sides. Do you know some other organizations that are promoters of the NWO? How about The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), and also the Tri-Lateral Commissiom. Both of these organizations have members on all 3 org. The CFR is not a part of our government. Our congress had nothing to do with it being instituted.

      • Bob

        Where does democracy actually exist certainly not in this country we’re just trying to force corporate fascism down their throats. We are the most incarcerated people on earth that should tell it all right there.

      • http://gillysrooms.blogspot.com Gillysrooms from Australia.

        Steve, Governments are not businesses, they are run like charities to bignote the politicians so they can get re-elected. The more you promise, the more votes you’ll get. Thats what our conservatives do to win in Australia and then they do the right thing and break their spending promises thank god. They could not win an election any other way and maybe the Republicans could take a look at Australian politics on tactics on some of the ways on how to win government. I’ve been advocating they break any spending promises but they wont discuss such good ideas until after they win..if they win that is.

        Our poorer non working voters have been fed on getting something for nothing for so many years from both sides i might add, that they cant see why they cant keep taking at the expense of the diminishing number of asset owners and taxpayers. Deficits are the price both side pay to win votes andcant break those promises, but in the end you only have two choices…and both deliver higher unemployment but the less spending route ends up costing people their assets too. In my opinion inflation will be a small price to pay to avoid total collapse and those with the knowhow can avoid losing most or all their assets. Pension funds will be lost, government bonds will be worthless, but real estate might be ok…at unknown values.

      • Gordon

        Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory. Right? Facts are that if someone somewhere with a plan were not trying to run the whole shebang nations would all be 3rd world countries. Face it: The average Joe has so little common sense and intelligence that they are unable to analyze and pragmatize the basic concepts of government. I bet that more than 80% of this Nation’s citizens of high school age and older cannot even explain the simplest difference between a republic and a democracy. I also bet that that same bunch has little to no plan for their life beyond waking up in the morning, watching “the news”, and feeding their overweight bodies. Simple observational abilities will show you that the vast majority are just here with no purpose or goal in life. So if there weren’t someone somewhere with a plan, then the system would implode.

      • Vigilant

        You seem to making assumptions that anyone in Washington is attempting to even make mild changes to spending. They are not.

        The politicos have not tried zero-based budgeting since Carter. Instead, they employ the “baseline” budgeting system, which preserves existing levels of expenditure, justifies only variances from past years, and includes automatic spending increases due to inflation, etc.

        Both parties are guilty of this hoax on the American people. They depend on you believing that “spending reductions” are just that; they are not. They are reductions in the rate of growth in spending. Spending STILL goes up.

        As I said, both parties are remiss. The Dems will have you believe that tax increases on the wealthy will reduce the deficit and debt, when (1) those increases will in no way be used to pay down the debt, and (2) the level of revenues received will pay for only roughly 8-20 days of government, depending on whether the $800 billion or $1.6 trillion (over 10 years) figure is used. In NO WAY will taxes on the wealthy improve the economy.

        The Repubs are as guilty as the Dems in massaging figures to make them say what they want them to say. The newfound term “revenues” is an attempt to weasel out of their “no tax increase” pledge. They are as self-serving as the Dems in failing to address the spending reductions that are needed to have any impact, i.e., in entitlements, military and welfare outlays.

        Do you have a money printing machine in your household? I didn’t think so. This whistling though the graveyard approach by the Fed merely puts off the inevitable. And we will all find out after not too long what a deleterious effect this has had and will have on our future and our children’s futures.

        Julie, do yourself a favor and read the transcript of that speech. Either that, or go to a site that shows the COMPLETE speech, not just the out-of-context portion.

        JFK was CLEARLY talking about Communism, not some NWO Bilderberger conspiracy. The thrust of his speech (to newspaper reporters and organizations) was about both openness in government and in the duty of the press to report honestly (something today’s media would do well to follow).

        There may indeed be a NWO conspiracy, but JFK’s speech in no way addressed it, and it’s irresponsible to pin his assassination on it.

    • Mary

      “keep your powder dry” Chip are you suggesting people who are not happy with their government take up arms against it? You do realize the government is elected by the people. I assume you do realize that the military would be called in to control the situation if the local police and National Guard could not handle it. You do realize they have access to more powerful weapons and drones and the vigilantes would be captured and tried for treason or killed. Maybe you should not be saying such things,.
      We have a much more powerful tool and it is called a VOTE and is usually done peacefully even though the right wing tried their best to supress that right during the recent election..
      This is not about Democracy and what the majority wants. It is about those on the right who are ticked off because they did not win an election and they will continue to promote rhetoric against our governement as long as the Democrats are in office. This is the truth ,or the right would have been saying and doing the same things when Bush was in office causing huge problems. No, they were silent.
      As for gun control, NO ONE wants to take away guns that people hunt with or protect themselves with. As far as control goes, yes it should be just as difficult to own a gun as it is to own a car. Everyone should pass an exam to make sure those people are fully competent and aware of the proper use and safety of their weapons. Lets face it, if you need high powered guns, designed for mass murder or war, then you need to call in your local Police Dept because it is a much bigger problem than you should try to deal with.

        Okay, to begin with, if voting actually made a difference, they’d figure a way to outlaw it. Instead, the various political machines control the outcomes, placing those in power who will carry out their will. Remember the recall vote in Wisconsin? When at least one district reported that 119% of registered Democrats voted, and another where ZERO Republicans cast a vote? Yeah. Who votes makes no difference. Who COUNTS the votes is what matters, and it has been like that for a very long time.

        And this is not even about Democrats vs. Republicans (a hegemony that I think of as Republicrats). This is about responsibility vs. irresponsibility … and those with a responsible mindset were screaming just as loudly when the Bush Administration pushed through the biggest infringement on personal liberty in at least two generations (the PATRIOT Act) as they are now that the Obama Administration is pushing for the demise of our currency. His policies cannot HELP but lead to hyperinflation. Can you not see that? If not, why not? This same scenario has played out a few times over the course of Western history. Paper currencies are simply not durable.

        Also, please don’t pretend that you don’t know that “keeping the powder dry” is a metaphor for readiness in a crisis. If you think a bunch of semi-literate yahoos are going to try for a coup d’etat … no, I won’t even go that far. You’re simply being disingenuous with such glaringly misinformed comments.

        The same goes for your statement that “NO ONE wants to take away guns that people hunt with or protect themselves with”. That is EXACTLY the position of the Brady Campaign and the Violence Policy Center and Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and most other overtly anti-gun organizations. They want to disarm everyone. They’ve made no secret of this. Read their literature. The “bottom line” is that gun control isn’t about limiting crime, it’s about controlling the populace. An unarmed people have no recourse against violence.

        Doubtless my words fall on deaf ears, but maybe if you see the truth enough times, some of it will sink in.

        Your comment is very DISAPPOINTING, Mary . . . but not really SURPRISING. Like most people today, you’ve simply just “PUT YOUR HEAD, IN THE SAND”, an doing a “LOT” of PRAYING, for things to just GET BETTER, but your in for a RUDE AWAKENING . . . Lets start, AT THE TOP . . . If the Government even “TRIES” to take our firearms ( IRREGARDLESS of “TYPE” ) it “WILL” trigger, a CIVIL WAR . . . that “ALL” the military ( With the exception of the “Marine Corps” . . . “THEY” would NOT raise their arms, against the American People.) could NOT even “HOPE” to win, an it would expose our country to ATTACK, from the “OUTSIDE”. . . which would only make things WORSE. You obviously have no actual “GRASP” of history, ( Every “MAJOR” war by “THIS” country, was STARTED by a “DEMOCRAT” . . . WW 1 ( Wilson )an 2, ( Roosevelt ) KOREA, ( Truman ) an (“MY” war ) VIET-NAM ( Kennedy, an Johnson . . . Nixon got “STUCK” with it.) . . . what’s going on TODAY, can not really be classified as WAR, only the “KOREA” model of “POLICING”, or a “POLICE ACTION”) if you did, you would see how SILLY you sound. . . YOU, like the vast majority, are going to have to LEARN . . . The “HARD WAY”. As a former Police Officer, your comment makes PAINFULLY clear, you DON’T understand HOW, or WHAT, Police actually “DO” either. . . again, your like “MOST” people. I could go ON an ON about what you “DON’T” know, so I will leave you with this simple statement . . . If you want to comment on things of this type, you need to do some “SERIOUS” RESEARCH. People like “YOU”, are the reason were “IN” this mess, in the first place . . . because of the “LACK” of knowledge.( It relates to something my FATHER, used to say . . . “Nobody REMEMBERS anything, anymore . . We have to keep doing things, OVER an OVER, after making the “SAME” mistakes, AGAIN an AGAIN.. ) My Dad was a “SMART MAN”, I the older I become, the CLEARER it is to “SEE”, how true his words were. I’m “DONE”.

        Howlingmad,
        I long ago learned to ignore typos and misspelled words on this site, but there are a few grammatical faux pas that I just can’t let pass.
        “( IRREGARDLESS of “TYPE” )” Regard is defined as concern, respect or attention. Regardless is defined as without concern, respect or attention. Irregardless, if it were an actual word and not an abomination would be defined as without a lack of concern, or as we who speak english would say, regard. Please help me wipe this “word” from the American lexicon.

        Last I heard we live in e CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. And while you may claim that the majority ELECTED Mr. Obama, the facts don’t bear that up. The popular vote only about 300K difference between winner and loser. And in OHIO, 59 districts with OVER 100% voter participation and NOT ONE ROMNEY VOTE!?!?!?

        No, Mary, the election was STOLEN and yes, we are angry. Our Constitution has been under assault since 1913 (earlier actually) but that is when the FEDERAL RESERVE got its hooks into us. The banksters that are crony capitalists in an unholy alliance with lefties in DC have done everything they can to tank the economy, and it is working. This is not histrionics and a bunch of right wing whacko’s out there freaking out.

        This is every sane person I know becoming very concerned. Storing food and fuel, water, Guns and ammo, cash, gold, trade goods. Anybody that cannot see the collapse coming is either a complete fool or can’t do simple math. You cannot print your way out of a recession. And any number of nations have rolled down socialist roads only to find that the death toll gets real big real fast.

        The Federal Government along with state and local governments have usurped the authority of the People, and it will soon come to be time to take it back.

        Are we angry? Yes. Do we have cause? YES! Liberal LIARS have turned many of our citizens into welfare droolers that produce nothing but take continuously. They rampage and destroy, demanding MORE all the time. They create chaos and confusion, and Obama gives them free phones and goodies to vote for him. The man in the White House is an immediate danger to the nation, and the combined “wisdom” of the House, the Senate, and the Supreme Court are allowing this. In a few years, barring another revolution, we will be a pauper nation, ruled by a TYRANT with no plans to EVER relinquish power.

        Yeah, you libtards have done us a real favor. And you wonder why we are angry.

          SIMPLY NOT TRUE, IT’S AN OUT AND OUT LIE. OBAMA WON THE POPULAR VOTE BY 4,654,478 VOTES (51%-47%five presidents have won two elections for president over 50% and four were in the last century and they are F. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan and Obama and that’s not bad company to be included with and sure shoots down your BS when he won twice by larger than normal numbers so you make no sense what so ever when the real facts are looked at (AND IN THE ELECTORAL COLLAGE BY A VOTE OF 332-206, 62% TO 38% and over 60% is considered a mandate) This was a big big win

          and only And in OHIO, 59 districts with OVER 100% voter participation and NOT ONE ROMNEY VOTE!?!?!?

Additionally, we have a conflict of interest in America, those who believe they are responsible for themselves and those who believe someone else is responsible for thier them – you would be one of these. This is a free republic Mary and those who are attempting to create a complete socialist nation – well these are called traitors. Oh yes, lets us discuss the votes that were illeglaly allowed in this nation, the illegals that were illegally given “amnesty”, let us also discuss the 100′s of big businesses which backed the socialist Mary, ask yourself why big business would back this regime Mary if it is consvs and not libs are pro big business. Mary, open your mind, use your brain – do not blindly defend what is wrong. If people don’t start looking at the truth of what is going on – it will hurt you before it is over as well. God Bless you if God so chooses Mary.

        • Piped Piper

          I am a Tea Party I would think. No hand outs to the lazy and able and no special treatment to the rich. You would think that a 2% tax on the second million would not be as bad as all the other taxes that now will fall on the all of us and the millionaires. I would of voted for the Plan B. But if The Great Obama did not have one spending cut in that bill I would of voted with the Tea Party. You give and you get. Obama only wants to get………he is a joke.

          • Jeff

            Obama has been all too willing to compromise with the right, too willing as far as I’m concerned. He compromises even before there’s a solid offer on the other side. What cuts do you have in mind? Remember, Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit.

          • Piped Piper

            Well where could you start. When Obama became president. To run the government, it /salaries it was 400, billion, now it is 450 billion. They had a pay freeze but with an executive order gave a bunch of his left bonuses instead, got around the pay freeze. I would cut the medicaid before I would cut medicare and make them see doctors instead of emergency rooms. Start with a hiring freeze. That was one thing that Romney was going to do. Never will get that chance. They just want a bigger government at any cost to protect their voting base. If it were not for the goernment the democratic party would not exist. The right/conservative wanted to raise the medicare to 67 years of age. I would disagree with that. How about raise the age for retirement for goverment worker or the years that they work and lower their pensions. You try to do the right thing and you get your butt handed back on a platter for trying. The Tea Party is trying to do something but it seems they don’t have a leader. The Tea Party in the Senate are a little smarter. They wanted them to except Plan B. I wasn’t there but I know OBAMA REJECTED ALL SPENDING unless you can tell me what he had on the table I will stand completely on what I say/said. State and local governments are going bankrupt because they have to many people in the cookie jar now. But everyone wants their share of the pie. So now you have NO ONE/NO BODY to do the right thing on the left so they just keep on putting in crooks to do the dirty work. I think 15 % of the right are greedy and useless at the top but I also think 70 or 80 % of the left are. When they keep hiring social workers that for some reason can’t get the job done and it keeps getting worse. I think it has become job security and they want this country to FAIL. We complain about 30 thousand of spending for each prisoner’s upkeep and we let the drugs come in and will not close the border. DRUGS ACCOUNT FOR UP TO 85 TO 95% of the people in prison today. You tell me what is the problem. I think this country wants to keep job security for their people and inturn lets this country go to hell for the law abiding and hard working to find security for themselves. Where do you want me to start.

      I’d like to answer your questions Gillysroom.

      The 350,000 jobs that were lost are newly unemployed people as our government does NOT count dead or retired people.

      Of the jobs created, the fact that 1 in 4 are only in the private sector, does not bode well for our country. Other than their withholding (Income) taxes, the 3 out of 4 government employees do NOT generate revenue. Only private sector jobs do, through production. The more production you have, the more employees you need. So, basically, the government employees benefit is only by what they buy and when you factor in their employment benefits (retirement, health coverage, etc), they do not “spend” enough to sufficiently offset the expense of hiring them and certainly do not provide “revenue” in excess of what they make. While a private sector job also provides “income” through income taxes and buying, just as the government employee does, the company they work for also provides revenue, via their increased taxes on increased revenue. If you do not have increased revenue from the private sector, your economy will tank, just as ours is doing.

      As for over 1 million people being added to the food stamp program…that’s a strong reflection of those who are still unemployed or “under” employed, if they are working a part time job. Those people are no longer counted, which artificially keeps the unemployment rate, suppressed, when in actuality, the real unemployment rate would be much higher than what our government is saying it is . When your unemployment benefits run out, welfare is your only option left, thus you see an increase in the food stamp numbers because people have to find a way (and qualify once they have no income or a really low income) to feed their families.

      • MLR

      Are you in Walkabout? We also attribute the fact that bigger government brings about more controls and less freedom and we are not looking at illegal activities in this. Example: Those that lead healthy lives and seldom if ever see anyone except their Dentist will now pay for those who refuse to act responsibly in their lives. Most in America have overeating problems and sugar addiction. I am asked to pay for others actions in a backseat or a bedroom that was, according to their desire afterword, irresponsible behavior! Obama is even attacking those who have moral reasons for objecting to much of his healthcare, which should be. Obama has violated his oath of office and should be impeached. This would make others who do so take a long look because many do so. When we served our Country what would happen if we violated our oath while serving? Obama is the first President to do so! He should be the last one to do so.

      You could expose the segregation academies in your part of the country Mississippi, and Alabama. I am surprised a righteous and opened minded guy like you would not have brought this issue to this site long before now. Is it not a cause worth taking up? Besides, you could blame it all on Obama. Get the backing of a few right wing zealots in Washington and maybe impeach him. You could do this all while helping educate young Americans in those segregation academy states.

Anyway what I wanted to know is what you are talking about regarding the “segregation academies”? I have not seen one. What do they look like? What is their purpose? I do not know where you live but I have never seen a segeration academy in Alabama. I doubt they exist except in your world. Wow. Also what I want to say to the moderators of this posting area is why do you not allow comments that you perceive as “racist”? Who decides what is racist and what is not? I thought this was a liberty forum and that one could post whatever he or she is thinking regardless of it’s content. I thought it was the left and the liberty haters that scream racism all the time.

        Nobody’s Fool: Obama is hardly innocent in stopping this nations hemorrhaging. I spoke out in his initial Libyan War because it wasn’t approved by Congress. I did approve of his giving out cell phone to help the elderly but that turned into another freebie program by young people who gamed the system. If he couldn’t demand accountability on that program then it should have been stopped. The thing is I despised Romney’s tactics (Bain) much more than Obama’s. When it comes to Bush I actually dispise Cheney far more than Bush himself. Another thing I dislike is the constant Obama name calling which you are very good at.

      Vicki says, “Liberals will still blame President Bush”.

      I’m not particularly “liberal” except in comparison to most on this site, but George W. Bush DID preside over the things that have contributed the most to our present deficit. Two unfunded wars, an unfunded Medicare drug plan, and two tax cuts for the wealthy account for most of the deficit, and W’s BORROW and spend policies were major contributors to the debt. Why wouldn’t ANYONE blame him?

      • wandamurline

        Remember one date….January 3, 2007….that is the date that the Democrats took a majority in both the House and Senate….they were in charge for the last two years of Bush’s presidency… and they have the balls to blame Bush? They kept Barney Franks over Fannie and Freddie when Bush had asked for regulations because he felt that they could hurt the economy if they failed. They kept Chris Dodd over the Financial aspect of the government….and where did the economy tank? Fannie and Freddie and the banks and Wall Street. Since Obama was a voting senator during this time, then if he inherited anything, he and the Democrats inherited it from themselves….not Bush. It is time to set the record straight and these are facts.

Now…given the Great recession was cused by years of graft, corruption, and the Middle Class getting hammered since 2000…what do you suppose could have been done by a Congress in only 6 months with both the GOP and Bush II stating nothing was to be concerned about?

      • Smilee

        The real facts; the dems took over both houses in 2007 and in the senate still do but lost the house in 2011 so in the senate from 2007 to date the dems are the majority but only from July 2009 until January 2010 did they have 60 votes enough to control it and stop the republicans from filibustering which is in effect veto power held by the republicans for all of this time but 6 months and they have used it in record numbers never seen before so in effect they bought ownership of much of what has happened as they refused to let democratic policy’s and laws to be passed and since 2011 the GOP in the house has also refused so only for six months has there been dem in total control and in that time Obamacare was passed or it would have been stopped too. It is call grid lock and that means no party is in control and the new no tax policy held fast to by GOP whom almost all have signed that pledge and with that gun to their head have refused to compromise on very much of anything and compromise was the founding policy of this country or it would not have come into existence. Republicans are also responsible for what has happened in this time frame so your blame is misplaced. Part of Obama’s goal in the fiscal cliff is to force republicans to not honor Grover Norquist’s pledge and this finds most republicans between a rock and a hard place either way and the public opinion is strongly behind Obama on this and his approval rating has shot up to 57% since the election when it was 51% and not long before was down to 41% so you can see that public opinion is not in the GOP’s favor and thus they are at loss and now dragging their feet hoping for a miracle which is not very likely.

      Vicki, Vicki, Vicki… “Liberals will still blame President Bush.”

      That’s because it’s the truth. He took a balanced budget and with tax cuts and a couple of wars drove the economy into the ground causing the worst recession ever.

      The facts don’t change because you don’t like Obama.

        Yes. Bush did this because he had a DEMOCRAT House and Senate and couldn’t stop anything. He tried to stop Bernanke but they wouldn’t let him, etc. He did warn about the housing bubble. No one listened to him. Everyone has their own simplistic reason for the failure of Bush. Why do people keep deflecting the problems of the last four, and soon-to-be eight, years of the country’s administration on Bush? How about we start analyzing what Obama is doing, such as saying one thing to the public in his flowery speeches, and doing another (in dictatorial fashion) behind the scenes?

        We are out of one war and about to be out of another.

        There is optimism that those who got such huge tax breaks at the top will again start paying their fair share.

        Rob; did you read the article? The numbers he stated are true. You can research them yourself. As far as wars, other then Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama got us into other countries wars. You need to check the Pentagons website. As far as taxes, since you are not a tax preparer, you might want to check with a CPA on what the tax rate is for the rich and why they pay that rate. And if raising the rates on the rich would matter.

    • Joy Thompson

      That was my first thought. If they could vote for Obama irregardless of the overwhelming evidence not to, they won’t be blaming him or his administration for anything. Everything happens for a reason…and the Bible says, “…The authorities that exist have been established by God”. Romans 13:1, and “He has brought down rulers from their thrones…”, Luke 1:52. Most of it makes no sense to us, but perfect sense to God, for His intents and purposes. Praise God.

        @ Robert Smith: So you say. In the meantime, we who believe the Bible to be the Word of God can look at what is happening and know that our patient, loving, merciful God, is giving us ALL sufficient insight, warning, and guidance to prepare for what He says is coming. Observing all of this and seeing how it corresponds with what has been predicted in the Bible is designed to convict you of your need for a Savior. I hope it does. Proverbs 14:12: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” We are all going to stand before God one day, (whether you think so, or not), and give an account of what we did while we were here. We’d better be able to show that we were on God’s side when all is said and done. Why don’t you take a minute and read the last pages of the Bible babble (as you call it), and see for yourself that GOD WINS!

      • Walter & Renee Agard

        Quite frankly I want NO part of such a brutal god. Please keep him to yourself.

        Rob

      • Joy Thompson

        @Robert Smith: I liked that you said “please”. I’m not going to pay attention to what you asked, but I liked that you were so polite about it.

        Please read Genesis 6…consider it an interesting fiction story if you want. God created Earth and put mankind on it. He gave mankind “free-will”, and they chose to use this freedom to do wicked things and “every inclination of the thoughts of (mankind’s) heart was…evil all the time…the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence…”. This grieved God, and His heart was full of pain. He said, “I am surely going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.” Noah believed God…he was a righteous man who walked with God…and he was blameless among the people of his time. He found favor in God’s eyes and God told him “…I will establish my covenant with you…” . God instructed Noah to build the ark…a way of salvation. As ridiculous as it sounded, Noah obeyed God. While he was building the ark, (for over 100 years), he was laughed at and made fun-of…much like those of us sounding the alarm today, don’t you think? So, for over 100 years the people were warned of impending doom and offered salvation from it.

        God has given us over 2000 years of warning. That sounds like a MERCIFUL God to me.

        The Lord continues to be merciful, today. It has been said that “mercy” is not getting what we deserve, and “grace” is getting what we don’t deserve. We deserve to be punished for our sins…”For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23. Please accept God’s mercy and grace while there is still time. Please read II Peter 3…His patience isn’t going to last forever. God Bless You.

        • http://tlgeer.wordpress.com tlgeer

          From the time that Jesus was executed, every single generation has been claiming that the end of the earth is near. EVERY SINGLE GENERATION!

          What you are claiming is not new, is not supported by evidence and has shown that the people making those claims are so far out of reality that it’s no longer funny.

          Jesus said that NO ONE will know when he will come back. Not even you. You are not an exception.

      • Joy Thompson

        Au contraire, Robert Smith. We serve a very merciful God, who doesn’t give us what we deserve…eternal hell…if we repent of our sins and trust in Jesus. “Repent”. Where we admit that we are sinners and ask to be forgiven for our sins. “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His word has no place in our lives.” 1 John 1:8-10.

        Regarding Noah: Did you know that Noah worked on the ark for over 100 years? That people were given the opportunity to “repent” for over 100 years? That sounds like mercy to me.

      • Joy Thompson

        @ Tigeer: What was it I said that indicated that I knew exactly when the Lord is coming back? I made no such claim. I said that He has been/is patient. The signs depicted in the Bible are that He is coming soon. We are thankful for that. “What may be known about God is plain…because God has made it plain…For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-His eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:18-20, (part). Did you get that? WE ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE. In the meantime the Lord is just and is/will be judging our country for turning it’s back on Him…for doing what is obviously contrary to His will. “The Lord reigns forever; He has established his throne for judgment. He will judge the world in righteousness; He will govern the peoples with justice…the nations have fallen into the pit they have dug…the Lord is known by His justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands…the wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God.” .” Psalm 9:7-17, (part).

          “The signs depicted in the Bible are that He is coming soon.”

          This is the type of statement that I was calling you on. People have been saying this for over 2,000 years. It hasn’t happened yet, so what facts lead you to believe that it will happen now? BTW, the other generations also used the Bible to back up what they were saying. They were wrong then, what makes you so sure that it will happen now?

          “Did you get that? WE ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE. In the meantime the Lord is just and is/will be judging our country for turning it’s back on Him…for doing what is obviously contrary to His will.”

          Nonsense. God will judge us on the way that we act as individuals. He does not, and hasn’t for 2,000 years, destroyed countries because they so-called turned their backs on God. God does not choose between his children, and we are ALL his children.

        NativeBlood,, I believe the effort is to cut the cost of OUR government not just the cost of THEIR government. The” food stamp crowd” that includes the middle class out of work and the poorly educated who can’t find work at a level to support their families do have children that we cannot let starve and still claim to be the greatest nation in the world! However, in times of war, guess who makes up vast majority of our FIGHTING FORCE? Not the defense contractors but “the food stamp crowd.” Like our greatest generation, many of whom by necessity were working on ” government made jobs” during the depression who immediately went into the service to fight our war!

        Incidentally, if the cost cutters get the full Paul Ryan plan who is going to feed the children of the 700,000 to 1,000,000 Americans who are predicted to lose their jobs? You do know that those “cut programs” are run by people( American citizens) with dependents! Also the private companies who do business with the “cut programs” and those who RELY on programs like the parks to bring in customers are going to have to fire people TOO?

        All of that is going to jump the cost of the food stamp program! That is a government program So we are going to cut programs just to enlarge other programs? .Be careful of what you ask for!

        i don’t believe Doc was saying they were comparable. hard to think of an employee of any industry being compared to the aristocratic leeches receiving so much benefit from the Welfare for the Wealthy programs.

        i believe part of what Doc was conveying is the fact that spending on Defense has a low multiplier effect. That is the bang for the buck in being spread around and creating jobs and economic activity. Defense spending is one of the lowest of any sector of economic activity. I believe it barely edges past a 2:1 multiplier. Compare that to say…the auto industry (5:1) or construction (almost 9:1)

        Want to waste any meaningful economic impact from spending? Spend it on Defense Contractors.

      • matforce

        Yea, why don’t these “freeloaders” simply throw themselves on their own sword and martyr themselves for the sake of our Plutocrats who have offshored our magnificent manufacturing sector that, just 18 years ago, had its tenticles extending into every conceivable niche imaginable, but has now been displaced, boarded up, and move offshore in favor of sweatshops in Red China ($1.36/hr. avg. wage), so our “Power Elite” (CEOs, Board of Directors, Boards of Trustees, and our Executive Teams in the realms of “multinational corporations, high finance, and investment) can continue to influence our Big Bad Government for influence and favor that has perpetrated this mess against the massive middle class, a type of “blame the victim? Sure there are those that abuse the system; I know them, you know them. But to place every “person” into the catagory of “leeches” that finds themselves in a bind because of our elite’s blind pursuit of short term profit, and more pointedly, our elected officials’ allowing themselves to be prostituted with filthy lucre and there-by allow this Great Sell-out to happen on their watch, is adding insult too injury! To say, “Just get a job!” when the jobs available don’t pay anywhere near what it takes to sustain a displaced worker’s mortgage payments, electric bills, insurances, taxes, etc., I can’t say I blame a working stiff for seeking help when the rug is pulled out from under them the way that it has.
        A closer look at these “leeches” would reveal that a majority of them are “people” from our proud middle class workforce who’ve worked hard all their lives but who’ve been displaced by this mad rush to large, short term profit margins by our elite, or have been working for years with disabilities that they endured while they had work, but now that they have been displaced in favor of sweatshops on foreign soil to increase the profit margins of our “multinationals”, they face either losing all they have or make the painful decision to ask for help, citing the disability they’ve endured for years while they had a job.
        Our corporations are sitting on $5 TRILLION in cash. But when anyone suggests they put their shoulder to the wheel to help out with this national crisis, cries will go up, usually from the right, about “class warfare!” While the right keeps denying any of this economic treason has happened, and trots out its usual cries of outrage to fan the flames of their base’s prejudices, our nation declines, and more and more of our hard-working citizens are sinking into the ranks of poverty by playing by the rules!

        Just because government defense contractors and others are producers does not give them justification for them stealing so much from us in the many scams they engage in to do so. A large percentage of those who work hard today get some welfare the biggest most often is the earned income credit (child care assistance, medicaid food stamps etc and others as well) and many do not see this as welfare but it is. Corporations lobbied hard for it and Reagan signed it into law in 1986 and it has been expanded since giving Corporations cover to now pay less than living wages and they now do. Do you qualify for it?? if you do you are getting welfare benefits but may not even realize it. I much rather some poor person got some of my tax money than some thief but a lot of conservatives feel the opposite, welfare for the poor is much less in dollars than corporate welfare (seldom identified as such, but it is) and corruption but conservatives see the poor as much more the problems and since the eighties we have instituted much more welfare than we ever had before and most of it for working people as companies so often today are underpaying their employees witch is also indirect welfare to corporations as it benefits their bottom line greatly. When you look at the whole picture we see you are misguided in you statements.

Some people should not own a computer. OR should check what they write instead of making crazy comments for people to read. I forget the husband’s name but the woman was Renee. Dangerous people with no sense to speak of.

      Spreading a little Christmas cheer there Frank? Some here will love your call for violence which is exactly what the right accuses the left of doing. We have a Conservative columnist (Mile Rosen) in our local paper who said violence is normal and natural in America and we have to accept it. Also said “it was part of our original heritage”. Yes there are blood thumpers on both sides so no excuses that one side is worse than the other.

      I normally would never sincerely ask that God “damn” anyone, but in the case of the liberals who got us into this mess, YES, I say I pray God does damn them to the lowest parts of Hell.

      • Mike in MI

        Anna -
        God won’t “damn” them. He doesn’t have to do a thing. The way Judgment works is they, by the words of their own mouths will condemn themselves, whom they serve with the service of their own hands and in what way they walk by the placement of their own feet will ultimately requite to them what they deserve.
        God had written a long time ago just what He will do to and for mankind, same for one as for any other.. The expectation has always been that those who care what God thinks will first seek to find out. He, then, sets it before them to either hear or study and decide what they think about His opinions. If they like His ideas – good. If they don’t like it and reject Him – not so good. It’s fate is always up to each individual soul’s choice.

      To Frank: You see man, this is why conservatives are looked down upon, laughed at, and are marginalized because of such stupidity. You’re playing at the collective expense of normal conservatives. You better read the writings of the late William F. Buckley, and Jack Kemp. i’ve said this upteen times, yet, i’ll say again. If not conservatives will be vanquished. Then, a Stalinistic type regime will truly get hold in this nation. Thereby, think in the future before saying such rubbish. BTW, look at demographics, it would be against you. You’ll, either, end up like Custer at the Little Big Horn, or the Nazis at Stalingrad. Think about that also. TGIF!!

        Buckley and Kemp;s conservatism is not the conservatism that controls the GOP today, if it only was we would not have to contend with these radicals that are in charge today with things then being much better, those guys also were intelligent and would cooperate to a much larger degree rather than always my way or you can got to Heii mentality of the GOP today.

      Frank, I agree with you but your passion will earn you some serious name calling. I, too believe a revolution is coming. A race war is on the way for sure. It goes without saying that blacks are angry with whites and whites are angry with blacks. The poverty pimps like Sharpton and Jackson need to keep themselves relevant and having Obama in office is not helping the situation. He gave 2 billion dollars to black farmers for “What they experienced in the past.” This went

      virtually unreported except for in media outlets such as this. People are giving up on the mainstream media and only an idiot can’t see the covering up for the democrats and Obama that they have done. It used to be subtle but now it is “in your face”. They no longer pretend to be unbiased but rather are open with it. The election was indeed stolen and what gets me is why Romney said nothing. If I were him, I would have went on the warpath. I have friends all over the country and family too. Many said the same things to me. Identification was not asked for in some states and if it was shown, the owner was told to “put it away” that was in MA. In Ohio bus loads of Somali’s were being brought to the polls to vote by left leaning “community organizers” and because they spoke no English, they were told how to vote. Areas of PA had districts where Romney got not one vote. Does that not sound fishy to anyone else here? I know some fairly conservative black folks who believe in conservative values and are staunch Christians yet they still voted for Obama. Why or why do white people not stick together like other races do? Why are when crimes committed by whites against blacks is it always a hate crime but when reversed it never ever is a hate crime? This is the stuff that is fueling the coming race war and the powers that be have no intention of stopping it. I cannot believe that Obama got re-elected and know it wouldn’t possibly have happened IF the elections were not rigged. If he wants to win by cheating, then that says more about him than it does about anyone else. He is a dangerous man, a non citizen, Muslim, American hating,Christian value hating meglomaniac. He needs to go but with the power of the mainstream media protecting his every move, he is here to stay. Herr Goebbels himself would be green with envy at the power of the press that Obama and the left have at their disposal. What a shame is it not?

        You know no such thing. At the most you are just Imaging things. IOW, you wish to believe this because you wish to believe it, and for no other reason.

        “He is a dangerous man, a non citizen, Muslim, American hating,Christian value hating meglomaniac.”

        This again?!?!?!

        Obama was born in Hawaii and is therefore a natural born citizen. Period. That you don’t want it to be true does not matter.

        There is no evidence that Obama hates America. Not one piece of evidence.

        He has never been a Muslim. Period. That you prefer to believe propaganda against verified facts is not very surprising to me.

        Christian value hating megalomaniac? What FACTS lead you to believe this? He has been a Christian for over 20 years.

        Dana, grow up. Stop believing things just because you want them to be true. Look at FACTS, not rumors, not unfounded statements. IOW, start living in reality.

        In fact you are the one who needs to reorganize things. Like Obama being a “Christian”. He lived at one point in Indonesia. While there he attended a school that indoctrinates boys in the Koran and how to be a good Moslem.
        In Chicago he went to Rev. Wright’s black liberation theology circus. Black liberation theology is as “Christian” as Malcolm X. But it IS a church – a place where peope go to sit in pews and listen to somebody say, “God this – and God that. and Oh, je-ee-ez-zus.”

      • http://don'thaveone. Dana

        Doc, you cannot possibly believe that Americans are too smart. Can you? Americans are dumber by the day. They are taught revisionist history in the public schools. They are taught about people like Rosa Parks but not about George Washington anymore. They know little or nothing about the Constitution and what is in it. We are far far behind other countries in basic learning and on every subject. We used to have the smartest and most resourceful working unit in the world. Now w

        e are a pack of drooling idiots. I blame affirmative action and incompetent teachers. Also no sense of competition because it might damage some poor little kid’s self esteen if the others are smarter than he is. Everyone gets a trophy because we cannot play favorites. This sort of backward thinking is what is the problem. When I was in school things were much different plus I had the advantage of attending Catholic schools that gave a much better education. If you were smarter than some of the others. it was duly noted. There was no sense of everyone is the same. Sure we were the same in the fact that we were all given the same education but not equal in the outcome because some studied harder than others and some were just plain smarter. I have several great nieces and nephews who attend public schools in nice suburban towns but they are taught terrible things about our founders being evil slave owners and white supremacists and so on and so forth. Also they are taught that we brought disease and nothing but trouble for the Indians and that we never would have survived here if not for the Indians. What kind of nonsense is this and why are our children being taught this stuff? White children are being taught to hate themselves and their race while black kids and others but mostly blacks are taught that they have a fine history full of great art and ingenious inventions. I do not care if they teach some black history but be honest about it. Do not teach innocent children fairy tales to boost their self esteem. Self esteem can not be taught, it has to be earned and we are doing these children a great disservice by not teaching them that very fact. We need to get competitive again with the rest of the world even if it means getting someone’s feelings hurt. No where in the Constitution does it say you have the right not to get your feelings hurt. It is just nonsense and not right for the children of this nation, black and white.

          “They are taught revisionist history in the public schools. They are taught about people like Rosa Parks but not about George Washington anymore.”

          LOL Where do you people get these insane ideas? My 4 Grandchildren (the youngest is 12, the oldest is 18 in her first year of College) were all taught about both the Civil Rights Movement as well as our Presidents, including George Washington.

          There were, also taught about our Constitution in Civics Class.

          “There was no sense of everyone is the same.”

          There wasn’t when I went to school, my children went to school, or my Grandchildren going to school. Where, exactly, did you get this idea?

          “I have several great nieces and nephews who attend public schools in nice suburban towns but they are taught terrible things about our founders being evil slave owners and white supremacists and so on and so forth. Also they are taught that we brought disease and nothing but trouble for the Indians and that we never would have survived here if not for the Indians.”

          There were Founders that were slave owners and racist.

          We did bring disease to the Indians. That is a fact, and is not up for an argument. Anyone who has ever read the actual correspondence directed to and from the Department of Indian Affairs, and I have many, many times, knows that this is true.

          We never would have survived the beginning years without the help of the Indians. We were not prepared for the weather conditions or what could be grown in this new country. This is, also, a fact.

          It seems that you need to educate yourself, using evidence based material. You, quite obviously, have no idea what is real or not.

  • Right Brain Thinker

    More of the same old “the sky is falling” talk from Chip. To address just a couple of his points:

    Chip says, “That’s right; of all the new jobs created in the United States since June 1, the Labor Department says only one in four were in private enterprise”.

    Chip neglects to mention that the largest job losses during the recent “troubles” were among government employees—governments are now finding their way clear to rehire—and those government jobs and paychecks DO stimulate the economy and help make people self-supporting. The best way to “stimulate” and create jobs seems to be via government right now—-create the demand that will then stimulate business. The greedy rich cry-babies are sitting on their piles of money because “It’s too risky and too uncertain and I’m afraid I might not be able to continue to accumulate obscene wealth if I ‘create jobs’, so I’ll hold back”.

    Chip also says, “The latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office are that Federal deficit spending will surpass 100 percent of the gross domestic product of this country by 2025. And that it will double from there after another 12 years, reaching almost 200 percent of GDP by 2037″.

    Ah, the wonders of math and the cherry-picking opportunities they provide for those with bias. 2025 is THIRTEEN YEARS AWAY—-look at the damage George W. Bush did in just eight years and be hopeful that a reversal of his mistakes will turn things around long before 2025, perhaps within just a handful of years. And Chip says things will DOUBLE by 2037? YES, and we can project that they will be double that by 2049 (or 400% of GDP), and double that by 2061 (or 800% of GDP). Not to beat a dead horse, but PROJECTIONS are just that—-a snapshot of what MAY occur based on analysis of present data—-change the data, the projections change.

    In line with that last thought, one horse is never too dead to beat. Recall the “projections” of the “supply side”, “trickle down”, “don’t tax the job creators” mythologists. IT DIDN’T WORK, but many shouted from the rooftops that it would and a certain R & R team lost a recent election partly because the public was smart enough to know that.

    • Flashy

      Nice article. It plays fast and loose with numbers. For example, the CBO report is qualified by stating the assumptions are based partially on tax rates remaining the same and spending increasing at ‘historical rates”.

      Though we all realize numbers are always played with and reports are “surgically reported”.

      Let’s look at some hard facts. The Euro’s. In 2008-09, the Euro’s undertook the economic programs which the conservatives and extremists here were insisting we also enact. Austerity in spending and cutting taxes on business and the wealthy. Hmmm…. See where that has them today? Their reliance on severe monetary growth, merciless welfare cutbacks, cutbacks in R&D and investment in new growth industries and business tax breaks has led to massive increases in unemployment, more spending on entitlements, lower revenues and even higher debt loads as consumer spending falls every month.

      Or…take Japan. Know what the Japanese call the 90’s? The Lost Decade. Know what they did to combat a severe recession as the 90’s began? Uh huh, you guessed it … severe brakes on monetary growth, lower business taxes, cut entitlements and spending.

      These policies insisted upon by the extremists and conservatives (and adopted by the Euro’s) were rejected by the administration when it took office in 2009. Spending was not cut, nor was it increased. It was held flat-lined. You can look it up, this administration has the lowest growth in federal spending for the past 50+ years. Taxes were lowered for the Middle Class, held steady on the Upper Incomes. Programs created targeting new emerging high tech industry.

      The result? We are ahead of the industrialized nations. We have growth, we have a falling unemployment, and we have an economy ready to spring into the final and third phase of any recovery from recession … job growth. The extremists and conservatives bewail our current economic situation. What they fail to reveal is that looking at what has occurred in the countries which adopted their “solutions” Not what they claim would occur…but what will occur.

      • Richard Gozinya

        Fascinating. Well, I’ve learned something. Silly me, I’ve always had the notion that Private Enterprise was the growth engine of the economy, not the government. Well, according to your wisdom, there is a simple solution. The government should make all citizens government employees and get rid of private sector employment and business altogether. Then we should be incredibly prosperous! Brilliant, my man!

      • http://tlgeer.wordpress.com tlgeer

        Richard,

        “I’ve always had the notion that Private Enterprise was the growth engine of the economy, not the government. “:

        No, people working is the growth engine of the economy. Government workers spend, and therefore, increase our tax income, the money that is spent for items helps to create more jobs because the manufacturers and sellers need to have more personnel to work for them.

        Government workers pay the same income taxes, they pay for the health plan (out of a lot offered) that they have chosen. This, BTW, includes the Members of Congress.

        This works just the same as private workers.

      I actually believe the reason why the Politicians are Crippled and unable to work together on policy is because of the long term over view of world population growth and the relationship a Consumer driven economic system that needs this Population growth to value the process of supply-side expansion .
      I grew-up up here in Oregon on a Dryland Wheat and cattle ranch and we ran Mother Cows on BLM range , and that range had a Limited Capacity to feed a Herd of 200 cows 6 months , and to tell you the truth over the years I saw that range say 30 years was what I saw of it , and it actually is an above average range compared to the majority of western states ranges it was better off when we would run 20-30 head less . There is just so much production , sure Innovation can help to expand supply , history is on our side with this BUT a Finite element cannot be ignored and population growth can get ahead of these innovative periods that result in supply expansion , and I think we are entering one of these times , much like what we saw in Europe and Asia back 100 years ago when the 40-50 years period between the late 1800s that saw famines , conflicts , genocide all a result of overall supply production not keeping up with population growth and it was not until after the 2 World wars that we saw a Massive Innovative Period that Expanded food supply starting in the 1900s with the industrial age of machines that evolved into our last 80 years of World supply expansion and peace through a greater abundance but I think we are at this cross roads again , only this time we have a free market full of Free Thinkers who freely through a pricing system are collectively without Political influence through pricing are telling us there’s a supply shortage ahead !!! look at the Long term Bond market that’s a lack of Trust to hold Long term Debt Investment to Convertibility ,a d this is why the Governments in the world have taken over and are printing money and buying their own Bonds !!!! That by itself should be a warning to be telling us ahead of time with this Uncertainty along with the volatility in Commodities that we have seen in the last 6 years or so , that Spiked Violently before the crash in 2008 that the last period of this phenomenon of conflict and radical Government reactions , like after the Weimar Hyper Inflation era , this was due to their not understanding this until the population would swell up and create a shortage that was to overwhelming all of a sudden to the overall supply and that’s when conflicts and dictators would rise up out of this confusion and nasty things would alleviate the problem for a while .

      Given the Limited capacity of a Finite element such as Earth is and its ability to sustain population expansion at the rate of 100 million a year and the way the resources are limited like drinking water . This article gives us 20 years before water is a problem , I saw half of 200 cattle run out of water before and you want to talk about CAHOS , just imagine if we do nothing and billions of people start fighting over a lack of water , http://www.upi.com/Science_News/2012/09/10/Report-warns-of-world-water-supply-crisis/UPI-13071347317292/

      Everything I read says 30 years in food at the currently rate of population growth and things get messy but if water is a problem in 20 then that takes priority . They will not allow us to get there before intervening , and I think this is what we see talking place with the credit gone out of the private sector free market in a overall financial sense like it was before 2008 . And as we Bleed out our private principles of cash reserves we see more and more people that run out become more and more dependent on Government , this election showed us that the majority are to scared to trust the free markets enough to give up on whatever Gov assistance they have now . And this is exactly what the Governments in the world are doing to rein in their Population with the Capital consolidation into the Government to Control the rate of Consumption very Methodically but without being in the open , and I think this way of handling the issue is wrong because it breeds Confusion in the Intellectual mind of society as a whole and conflicts break out because of the lack of understanding .

      They should just grow some balls and come out and say it , make it the talking point about the reality of it all . People are not so stupid as to not see this logically and assess the situation and organize by processing this thought and once this rational is understood as a society I do believe it would lead to a society that chooses to accommodate this with personal choices and people in general after having this knowledge would then get out of their self and become less confused and focus on the future and set forth on a direction that would work out the need for what it is that we would create to sustain current and future society without a Top Down Forced mandate that confuses the society even more and results in conflicts due to a lack of knowledge and understanding of the future problem we face .

Bush,clinton,carter are all NWO ! they have you fighting each other and divided..But you know it all ignorants fall right in to their trap and contribute to the destruction of the country…I’m old and my days are numbered but never will i surrender my dignity and reside one single day under communism…Promise!! We fought for your freedoms and asked nothing in return except for you to preserve it…Thanks!

    fiscal conservatism went out the window when the bush administration allowed the high end tax cuts to remain in tact even while government engaged in a spending spree on steroids in the form of two unfunded wars and an open ended so called war on terror, big mistake, because this was an open ended invitation for more fraud and abuse than we could ever have imagined with this so call department of homeland security. Now there isn’t much to cut .. get over it. Paul Ryan’s so call wonder budget just beat up poor people. Even Ron Paul would have had difficulty in finding where to cut but at least he would have I think had the courage to take on the pentagon, the federal reserve and the department of homeland security all of which have blank checks. Also letting our manufacturing base leave the country entirely for cheaper labor countries is absolutely nuts. … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGujjO_Za2c

    The good governor of Colorado announced this morning that he will have our legislature start discussing gun control the first of the year. I expect all hell to break loose about then. I don’t think he has any realization that Colorado as a whole is well armed and there are enclaves up in the mountains that are well fortified and are probably better armed than the military, plus the fact that folks on the plains have been building underground shelters. Are these people really as stupid as they appear. We are on the brink of a Revolution in this country.

      Neva…I guess the shootings at the Oregon mall are “just because’ and the access to an AK was “just coincidental’ and the easy access to guns ‘would have prevented’ the shooter ?

      or how about the 11 year old (almost 12) who had a pistol and tried to carjack from a woman in a parking lot? (the kid is white btw..as was his 7 year old accomplice)

      Neither family owned these guns. They were borrowed in the first, stolen in the second.

      So….what was that about being anti-gun control because easy access to guns and their proliferation are not an enabler of senseless violence?

    All this assumes that we actually owe anyone anything. Where are the discussions about why Congress allowed wealthy banking families to overtake our system of government? Where are the discussions that those families are now controlling the elections?

    The fact remains that the American people have been treated like mushrooms; feed them siht and keep them in the dark, because if the public understood one iota of the truth, it would be livid and Congress would would no doubt be vacant of the rubberstamping bobbleheads we have now.

    If we ever did have a president who would stand up and try to tell the public of this, he’d probably be taken out. Eisenhower touched the surface, but the wealthy bankers weren’t about to have an elderly, popular, outgoing president assassinated. It just wouldn’t look good. But then we had JFK, who pushed the bar up considerably. He was too dangerous to them and was “removed” as a result.

    Goldwater was probably one of the last true conservatives before that moniker became a cussword. He had these people figured out and was politically sabotaged for having done so.

    It really doesn’t make much difference what party made it into office as long as they were Constitutionally and fiscally oriented. I mean, think about it, if both paths led to the same end, who would really care? But the problem now is that both paths have nothing to do with fiscal responsibility or adherence to the Constitution. Republican voters will continue to see only two choices, fed to them by a corrupted media, and all they can see is bad and worse; so they choose bad. The same hold true for the Democrat supporters. Neither one of these (and I’m referring to both the hard-core progressives and the grain-belt bible thumpers) have done a lick of research into looking at the larger issue. They will continue to spew chapter and verse about how only THEIR party can be our salvation, or only THEIR party has enough of itself intact to rebuild it.

    These people are living in a fantasy world while Rome is burning down around them. They take the newsbyte pablum as they are dutifully instructed to and then march out into the world, as the pawns they are, to defend the rulers, little realizing that they’d all been had, like a cheap slut. It isn’t until we drag history into the current quagmire that we begin to see the ugly heads of Edward Bernays, the Huxleys, Margaret Sanger, and Codex Alimentarius, Operations Garden Plot and Paperclip, and a whole host of others that have been used to push people in power into positions of absolute power, while driving the common once sovereign US citizen into a state of blind servitude.

  • nc

    Wandamurline, you say the Democrats in charge during bush’s last two years are the cause of bush recession? If thing were going so well under bush and the Republicans why did they lose control in 2006? They had had complete control of every committee in Congress for his first six years plus the previous six and they couldn’t fix what was wrong?? They must have had their heads up their butts and their minds in neutral! Americans must have seen something wrong prior to the 2006 elections with that Republican strangle hold that conservative republicans refused to see! Denial is a disease of the mind.
    The first thing the Democrats did was to give bush the stimulus package HE was begging for to save his collapsing economy that had started BEFORE the Democrats were sworn in! REMEMBER??

    All of this collapsing was occurring when Barney and Chris had ONE VOTE EACH and the Republicans controlled every committee in both houses That is two smart Democrats who can take one vote each and control policy in their house!
    The whole Republican lie of Barney and Dodd pushing Fannie and Freddie and bush resisting their efforts can be clearly seen in the video of bush, well into his SECOND year in office, PRAISING FANNIE AND FREDDIE for their efforts with providing support for low income housing purchases especially with the ones with bad credit histories! Those turned out to be the most toxic and bush was ALL FOR IT!!! Type in “video of bush praising Fannie and Freddie” and spin that for me!!
    Also don’t forget that the bush you are trying to take off the hook for government money in the housing market as late as 2004 pushed for and PROUDLY signed into law a bill that used TAXPAYERS’ MONEY to make the DOWN PAYMENT FOR THW LOW INCOMW PURCHASERS!
    WANDA YOU HAVE HAD WAY TOO MUCH KOOLAID!!

        You say, “Actually O will tax the rich, any rich that disagree with him. The other rich who go along with him will be helped to hide their money, to make money, and to continue making money.”

        That is quite a leap you have made—-how complicated do you think they will have to make the tax code to allow for rewarding or punishing those who agree or disagree with O’Bama? Sounds like they may need a new cabinet post—-the “Secretary of taking care of O’Bama’s rich friends but not O’Bama’s rich enemies” perhaps? The posters on PLD will go bonkers over this one.

That I understand and I doubt we will ever really know what percentage of those on this list would have chosen another candidate beside Obama had that candidate been a viable one.

    Bush is NOT, NOT, NOT to blame for the last recession! Yes, he over spent and increased our national deficit $0.5T/year but that is less than half as much as by Obama’s $1.25T/year rate.
    How convenient it is for the left, to forget that the last two years of the Bush presidency, both the House and the Senate were controlled by the democrats. It was during this time that by the rules and regulations insisted upon of ignorant lending practices that; between the banking industry and the housing authority’s (Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac) that ridiculous liberal lending regulations were nonsensically imposed, which by the way George Bush tried to stop. Unfortunately, Bush was unsuccessful and the lending industry was revolutionized; allowing the marketing of housing loans to those who could never afford to pay them back and then prompting these worthless loans to be bundled and passed on by the banks to unsuspecting investors. When the loans came due and could not be paid, this practice ultimately resulted in the collapse of the housing market with colossal foreclosures and bankruptcies. Thus began the recession; a downward spiral in the stock market began causing massive business austerity and layoffs. This was followed by a momentous reduction in consumer confidence and spending, further propagating the recession.
    Yes, Mr. Obama took over a bad situation but it was caused by his own party! And nothing noteworthy over the last four years has been done by the left to rectify this? All we have seen is more and more wasteful spending!

    When our current executive branch of government implodes within, it will leave a vacuum to where the likes of the UN and quite possibly the BRICS nations to come in under the guise of chaos control as well as be in direct control of our current military. This scenario could very well be avoided if we the people assemble a legal provisional government laying in waiting. This legal provisional government is in no way intended to overthrow the current executive branch. If the UN and/or the BRICS nations come in, this could result in a multi-million man casualty civil war. To prevent such, the legally recognized provisional government I speak of could be in line to fill the vacuum and legally enable the authority to direct the military in a protect the people mode because the military can only legally operate under the authority of a legally recognized government.

    Obama’s playing the game just the reverse of Bush. Bush had us looking overseas while he performed his wiles at home and Obama has us looking for the buck at home while he plays his games overseas. With his recognition of a bunch of mercenaries that invaded Syria as the legitimate government, he’s set the stage for war in Syria. This one’s going to bring Russia and China into it. They’re more aware than the American people are of America’s agenda, that is to takeover the Mid East and African oil countries. My concern is, will Russia and or China stage a preemptive strike on America? They know we’re above that.

    Look the buck is counterfeit dead without some kind of a commodity backing them and there aren’t any left in America. That paper we’re using as a medium of exchange will to have gold, silver, the weath of America, something that a holder can exchange it for. There aren’t any in America. What’s a gold certificate going to say? You’ll need 1,800 of these to purchase an ounce of gold? Obama , if he wasn’t before, is now a Caligula. If I am man, then my subjects are something else. If They are men, then I must be something more. Forget about the Consitution. The politicians in robes do.

    “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money.” When the nonproductive can vote themselves more of the national treasure, votes will be bought with promises.
    “The Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported that 847,000 new jobs were created in the United States in the past six months.” Sounds like a lot of jobs until you realize that the US Census increased from 1990 to 2000 by about 250,000 average PER MONTH.

I have always had faith that our Democrat candidates would be true to our middle class friendly platform!! Have never been disappointed by a single Democrat president!

    The story of the camel and how one more straw broke its back is instructional. Suppose the voter records were open so we know who votes for whom, no I’m not suggesting it, just hypothisizing. Now, those who voted for obumma are in fact those who approved of adding more straw to the camel’s back, but suppose that those who didn’t vote for obumma chose not to be “camels.” Then the obumma voters would be denied the power to force the non-obumma voters into assisting/supporting the camel, and in fact the obumma voters would be piling straw on their own backs whilist simultaneously trying to support the camel. An interesting physics problem for someone to explain. The point is that the obumma voters would then be fully responsible for their loot A to satisfy B crooked philosophy as they would be denied the power of looting the non-obumma voters. Thus the obumma voters would come face to face with the fact that they are looting themselves. This is the honorable way for the the obumma voters to go. It is ethical that one must loot himself first before ever looting anyone else. Ignornace is bliss but it leads to the abyss.

      Jack, what you accuse Obama of is exactly what Democrats for the past 80 years have been accused of> The use of some government funds to aid those who are less fortunate by a mile than the independently wealthy!

Would you care to see a chart of how well the economy of this country has fared under the Democrats as compared to other party as the Democrats have remained loyal to that policy when they occupied the White House???

      It reminds me of the inane battle between the Judeo-Christian religions and those of Islam; both brothers born of the same father, yet each one professing to be the only show in town and condemning the existence of the sibling. At some point, as both sides spiritually mature, one would hope that they see each other for what they have in common instead of perpetually trying to blow each others’ heads off.

      But as this pertains to the Dem and Rep parties, instead of both of them embracing their participation in this grand democratic republic, BOTH parties are hiding from the American public that the parties REALLY answer to the banking families.

    People just don;t get it and have a desire to keep burying their head in the sand. Obama and the Democrats don’t want to extend “ANY” of the Bush tax cuts. “NONE”. ZIPPO and NADA. Do a search on Bush Tax cuts. Wikipedia goes into detail. Extending the tax cuts for those making over 200 K costs 750 Billion over ten years. This almost a trillion in Revenue that Obama talks about is “OVER TEN YEARS”. Meanwhile it costs 2.3 trillion over ten years to extend then for those making under 200K a year. So it brings in 75 Billion a year for those making over 200K a year and the Obama plan is to spend 50 Billion of that in Stimulus spending leaving 40 Billion which this Administration spends in less than a week. Extending it for those making under 200K costs 230 billion a year or three times as much. Letting both expire brings in over 300 Billion a year in Revenue or 3 trillion more to spend in then years.This is why Obama is making unreasonable demands such as being able to bypass Congress on raising the Debt Limit etc. Obama wants to let them expire. This is common sense. I am Retired and don;t care about Unemployment. I want the Fiscal Cliff. I pray for it. I will be able to buy low in the Stock Market just as I did in 2009 when people were sucked in to blaming the wrong people and I just have to wait for it to go back up.

    I wish to thank the people who voted for Obama and keeping the Democrats in control of the Senate so they can continue to shelve all Legislation passed by the House and then blame the Republicans for doing nothing/ The Republicans are just as dumb for allowing it to happen and not bringing out the facts.

Most of the crap we are being forced to eat is being rammed down our throats by authoritarians that were “ASSIGNED” by the offshore banks to these offices that have corrupted and taken this country over and were not voted in ! Anybody who believes that their vote held any water has an empty cup in their hand and is in for a rude awakening ! We either ALL get off our collective ass’s and take this country back or we ALL will suffer tremendously once these idiots get everything in place ! There are over 300 MILLION American people in this country being told what to do by a few thousand !!! NOW you tell me whats wrong with this picture? These are the same people that are trying to racially divide us, poisoning our food and water, allowing these BIG $$$ corporations to inject us with toxins and then they tell us that we have to buy in to their agendas and that we have no choice ! We are being distracted by so many sides that most have no clue which way is up but make no mistake this BULLSH*T MUCT STOP !!! LOOK around you and if you can’t see the writing ion the wall your blind ! This country has become a banana republic and we are letting it happen right before our eyes and IF we don’t wake up soon WE will ALL be up the proverbial creek without a paddle and it will be Nazi germany revisited !!!

    Obama and Bush have nothing to do with the destruction of America. You want to look at the real culprit, Mr. Woods, look to the FEDERAL RESERVE!!! There’s you’re Vampire! Not these silly little office-boys, gophers and puppets, that we call presidents and politicians. It’s the private banking-cartel, affectionately known as the FEDERAL RESERVE that is robbing this nation blind. Good grief, man, when will this non-sense of blaming the puppet-president stop???

      Well, as to the first part, that is only partly correct. Obama has been to two Bilberberg meetings, while Bush was at least present at the 2004 meeting in Italy. Both Clintons have been to Bilderberg; McCain, Romney, Edwards, Kerry, the list is a long one, and the point of these meetings is about global domination. Bush, Obama, and Romney etc. would not have gotten as far as they did had they not been officially blessed by the Bilderberg Group. Jimmy Carter, David Rockefeller’s all time favorite PUPPET, went from a 4% Jimmy Who? popularity to win the presidency in part because Hedley Donovan, Time Magazine’s editor in chief and Trilateral Commission member, had been instructed to make Carter, Time Magazine’s “Man of the Year”.

      The Fed was just one tool that the banking families used to pry open the US treasury.

  • Ali Is

    Frankly, this a;; is an issue above and before Obama got there!!! The rich are more capable of sustaining and giving based on them stealing most of the time. It is difficult to make 100K and give 28% back to the federal government because you don’t have or want a wife, kids, or anything they dictate over on the planet. The problem with most of our government is they have all the power and the people don’t! They are bought by lobbyists who make it ok to secretly purchase the people in leadership. Additionally, government offices of this amount of power should be a maximum of 8 years just like the president… We don’t need to continue with senile mental case politicians who are too old and set on stupid to face the needs from a realistic perspective within this decade, in preparation for the next one. I am considering moving into a political arena because we are consistently faced with stupidity and people who are over educated, over rated, unethical and focused on themselves. I would hold topical voting sessions for every office I held, to figure out the need and want of the majority in the ward, district, county, state or city. This is too much like right though, but the young America will indefinitely change a whole lot because they are educated and tired of the poor decisions made by these prehistoric, small minded, 20th century focused politicians. It’s kinda like the old would say in opposite: “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. However these methods and practices are broken and we have to fix it!!!!!

    Vicki, your reference to a Fox News “follow up video” to the famous “bush praising Fannie and Freddie” video of Oct. 2002 is a real hoot. Fox News starts out by saying the “bush administration’ was wanting to rein in Fannie and Freddie as early as April of 2001 because it was dangerous> They did so WITHOUT EVER explaining why bush was so complimentary of Fannie and Freddie FOR doing what they do 17 MONTHS LATER! DID HE FORGET THAT THEY WERE BAD AND DANGEROUS AND NEEDED TO BE REINED IN!

    PLUS THE FACT, their video said the problem with Fanny and Freddie had started years before bush II took office OBVIOUSLY FORGETTING that the Republicans and not the Democrats had been in charge of GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT FOR WRONGDOING FOR SIX (6) FULL YEARS BEFORE bush GOT THERE! THE REPUBLICANS TOOK CONTROLL OF EVERY COMMITTEE OF CONGRESS IN 1995! REMEMBER, VICKI??? NO??REALLY??

    No crystal ball is necessary to predict that a turning-point in the history of money and banking in the United States is drawing nigh. The burden of governmental debt – much of it made possible only by central-bank “monetization” – has approached levels unsustainable in real terms even with drastically increased confiscation of Americans’ earnings through explicit taxation. But Americans seem reluctant to accept more taxation to fund the never-ending follies of a spendthrift welfare state. Thus, repudiation of the debt (in whole or in part) through extreme depreciation of FRNs and bank-deposits denominated therein appears likely, if not certain.

    For this looming debacle, Americans can thank the FRS, the “experts” who administered it since 1913, the politicians who wed it as a “cover” to finance their own careers, the bankers who profited from their monopoly over the emission of “legal-tender” paper currency, and the “intellectuals” in academia, the press, and the media who (quite unlike their counterparts in the last century) remained strangely silent on the issue of money and banking. That is, Americans can properly thank these people if Americans become aware of what the FRS is, what it does, and why it is responsible for having undermined to the point of collapse the nation’s once proudly prosperous economy and staunchly republican political process.

    Hopefully that day of a new national awareness will soon be at hand.

    If they can keep the spending cuts and come to some agreement on tax cuts it would be good for the economy. If it’s good I Obama will be blamed for that. The so called fiscal cliff cuts amount to only $68B this year. That’s less than 6% of the deficit this year. It would actually be good to spend less of our private sector money at least from our economic future, even if it’s just a little. Eventually we would be leaving more money in the private sector where it belongs. The damage of taking money out of the private sector to pay for government spending is never factored in.

  • http://gbvieto.wordpress.com deepizzaguy

    I remember going to a safety meeting at a pizza company years ago and the director of the meeting said the burden is on the leader of a company if his or her policies fail. Since Obama is our ahem President the burden will be on him if his liberal policies kill our economy. He can’t blame George W Bush this time around.

      DEEPIZZA, it is the supporters of daddy’s boy bush who should blame bush for Obama because it was bush’s total incompetence that beat McPain and made Obama President! If bush had done enough to have even a 40%approval rating there was no way a black man with a Muslim name could have become President with two wars against Muslims on our plate! Now that bush is gone and we are no longer losing 500,000 jobs a month and Iraq is history we express our thanks to bush for returning the Oval Office to the people!

      • http://tlgeer.wordpress.com tlgeer

        “it was bush’s total incompetence that beat McPain and made Obama President!”

        Not only that, it was the fact that McCain picked Palin (IMO, one of the worse decisions that he has ever made) and that he kept changing course during his campaign, and that he admitted that Economics was not his strong suite. He said that, along with the statement that our country was doing fine, just days before the bank crisis. He even went so far as to stop his campaign in order to go back to Washington, D.C. when he was not even on the Finance Committee!

        Obama, OTOH, had his campaign, and issues, mapped out before the campaign. And he kept to it. He was knowledgeable about what he was talking about, had it all put onto a website, yet acknowledged that he couldn’t do it by himself (that’s where the “Yes, I can” phrase came from). He wanted to change the way things were done in Washington, D.C. (NOT change our country!), which is where the “Hope and Change” phrase came from.

  • Alex Frazier

    I recently spent some time working on my book, which although completely unrelated to politics, nevertheless necessitates in depth historical research that has familiarized me with several eras in history, socially, economically, politically, etc.

    Most recently, I was reading through Theodore Mommsen’s History of Rome to find his opinion on the dating of the Treaty of Brundisium. But instead of finding his text on the conflict between Antony and Octavian, I instead found the text concerning Caesar and Pompey, who also had a conflict at the same location.

    While reading through this section, it quickly moved forward into Caesar’s consolidation of power, his crossing of the Rubicon and installing armed troops in Rome. Then, once Caesar had declared himself dictator for life, using the military to make good his claim against the objections of the Senate, Caesar began making a large number of social and economic changes to the Republic that were completely contrary to the traditions of the founders of the Republic.

    I even found it laughable that Cicero remarked that all of Rome’s aggressive wars against other nations were promoted by the Senate as being for the safety of Rome, or in defense of this ally or that.

    Some of Caesar’s changes included free corn for the poor, higher taxes on the wealthy, price fixing, an outright active campaign against free markets, and a number of other things that I can’t reasonably recapitulate here in this brief response. But the free corn caused people from all over Italy to move to Rome, until the corn had to be limited and portioned. After a while, only so many people could actually get it. The rest were on a waiting list, and could only get onto the list of those receiving when someone gave up their free hand out or died, thus opening up a spot to be filled from the waiting list.

    The end result of all this, though the public adored Caesar for all the free crap they were getting, was that the money eventually ran out. And when it did, the people rioted. Rome came near to ruin. It was broke. And even then, the people, so conditioned, believed it was the fault of land owners and the wealthy, entirely ignorant of the fact that the wealthy had already been taxed so excessively that they were no longer able to provide proper industry anymore.

    It took more war and more plundering from neighboring countries to bring Rome back to some semblance of solvency, but it was never the same, and the wars fought between the triumvirs and Brutus and Cassius, then later Antony and Octavian, Octavian and Pompey, in addition to a number of other campaigns in Spain, Syria, Parthia, Illyria, etc., during the space of only six years from the death of Caesar left no option but to tax the “middle class” of Roman citizens. Everyone was being taxed to the point of poverty. Famine ravaged Italy.

    As time went by, the oligarchy morphed into a monarchy between the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius. By the time of Nero, it had fallen into complete despotism under the rule of tyrants. It took barely more than a hundred years to take a Republic that had thrived for six hundred years and turn it into a full blown tyranny, where people had no rights, where they could be killed for saying the wrong thing. They were taxed into poverty to cater to the excesses of an emperor.

    While reading Mommsen’s account of Julius Caesar’s socio-politico changes, I couldn’t help but think to myself that, in essence, the same story has been replaying itself for at least 2,200 years, and with the same result every time. We are nothing more than the latest, greatest empire of Rome. We even have a Caesar who has crossed our Rubicon and brought 20,000 troops onto American soil. For the time being, he pretends to honor our institutions, just as Caesar did. Yet, out of his own mouth he said that he would be the first since Roosevelt to serve a third term. He is actively fighting against free markets. He is putting as many people as possible on the public dole. He is destroying private industry and replacing it with state sponsored projects that have no lasting productivity. He is leading us into war after war, and has gone so far as to rebuff Congress, ignoring their Constitutional authority to declare war. Caesar did the same thing. He defied the Senate and made his own rules.

    All we need is for him to declare himself President for life and we would quite literally have a repeat of the fall of the Roman Republic.

      Nicely written, Alex, and makes a lot of sense. Of course, you neglected to mention that the U.S. has a long way to go before it reaches the stage you describe. Mainly because it is NOT the wealthy in this country who are being plundered to provide “bread and circuses” for the masses but the other way around. Income and wealth are being siphoned UP to the 1% from the 99%. We may have riots, but they will be because the wealthy HELD ONTO their riches rather than were stripped of them.

      And what’s going on today really doesn’t parallel “back then” all that perfectly anyway. It’s a far different world, mainly because of the fact that today we have free markets run amok and perverted capitalism in control.

      Mr. Alex Frazier – Huzzah, to you, Sir. Thank you for the synopsis of your work.
      Let’s remember something else about those Caesars. They at first were suggested by others to have the bearing of gods. Because they wanted to believe themselves to have such status, eventually they worked it out to have themselves declared and WORSHIPED as gods.
      Now, I don’t think that The Obumstah is smart enough or disciplined enough to be able to qualify himself in the World’s eyes as deserving of that status – that will take a while and somebody a whole lot more conniving, devious and ambitious than The Obumstah. (But, who knows? When you sell your soul to the Devil he takes one over and can make a pig appear to be an Arabian Stallion…or, a gold-lined silk purse.)
      Let’s remember, folks, that the world we live in is spiritual in nature and our senses are totally incapable of portraying to us the entirety of the medium in which we exist. Either GOd’s Word is true – all of it – or “His Word” is all just more lies like everything else. Truth or tripe and facts or fantasy.
      Jesus Christ and the Apostles dealt either with the world as it truly IS – or, the Word of God is all just lies and what WE perceive is reality (BECAUSE WE’RE MORE “ADVANCED”).

    A reminder to everyone, Governments are not businesses, they are run like charities to bignote the politicians so they can get re-elected. The more you promise, the more votes you’ll get. Thats what our conservatives do to win in Australia and then they do the right thing and break their spending promises thank god. They could not win an election any other way and maybe the Republicans could take a look at Australian politics on tactics on some of the ways on how to win government. I’ve been advocating they break any spending promises but they wont discuss such good ideas until after they win..if they win that is.

    Our poorer non working voters have been fed on getting something for nothing for so many years from both sides i might add, that they cant see why they cant keep taking at the expense of the diminishing number of asset owners and taxpayers. Deficits are the price both side pay to win votes andcant break those promises, but in the end you only have two choices…and both deliver higher unemployment but the less spending route ends up costing people their assets too. In my opinion inflation will be a small price to pay to avoid total collapse and those with the knowhow can avoid losing most or all their assets. Pension funds will be lost, government bonds will be worthless, but real estate might be ok…at unknown values.

      Yes and the housing market problem could have been 100% reversed if the government borrowed another $trillion from the Chinese and payed off everyone’s bad mortgages. Yep that’s a solid solution slopa jopa. Spending borrowed money you don’t have is wonderful solution, which effects lasted long enough for Obama to get re-elected to another term leading to economic failure and long enough for you to print this garbage and possibly believe your own idiocy. Do you manage your own finances or just collect a welfare check and food stamps? If Romney were Pres, he would have reduced regulations and freed up the energy companies access to drill for Oil and gas, creating real wealth, leading to more jobs and real money (not borrowed)in the economy and then reduced federal spending. No panacea, but a step in the correct direction. The problem with Bush was that he was a compasionate conservative, spending like a democrat thus doing for the Democrats what they would have done, but having to take the blame for it instead of it falling to a like minded Democrat president.

    I fully agree, fiscally, with everything that Chip posted. However, as a libertarian, I wish to remind Chip and other conservatives that liberty means freedom. The freedom to be whomever one wants to be. In my view, that means gay rights, women’s rights, religious rights, and the right to practice any conceivable lifestyle that does not harm another human being. If being a conservative suggests that some ideology has the right to suppress the rights of others (i.e., bigots who would attempt to impose their will on others), then I will fundamentally disagree with all that is posited.

    The Ruling Class and the Wealthy become one, and everyone else becomes poor so that there are basically two classes. The wealthy sponsor legislation that protects their wealth, and the ruling class passes it thereby protecting their wealth and status.

    Wealth is sucked out of who is left and small business collapse because they do not have enough wealth to buy legislation. You cannot have a middle class in communism.

    Another key to communism’s success besides disarming the population is the propaganda machine a la Joseph Goebbels for Hitler – we have that in spades with our media, and that coupled with a dumbed down population is dangerous.

    Unfortunately, there are some liberals and socialists who think Utopia can actually exist (the fact that it has never worked before is inconsequential, it just hasn’t been done right in the past, it will work this time if only we….). Others are think like “have nots” and resent others who have wealth instead of thinking of the possibilities for themselves to achieve the success they resent.

    The liberals/socialists and “have nots” are about to get their wish – if we the people do nothing, we will all be poor and miserable together.

    Let the Liberals and Socialists be – they believe what they they believe for a variety of reasons that can never make sense to the rest of us.

    Name calling and nastiness is beneath us. Besides, there is irony in the fact that we resent them and what they are doing to our country as much as they resent us: we who stand for personal liberty, a civil society, accountability, capitalism, success (however an individual defines it). And, if we truly believe in liberty, then they have the liberty to believe what they believe.

    Here is the good news – we are living in unprecedented times. Goebbels called the power of the radio “the eighth great power”. All good communists know that you must control the media in order to control the population – the media is the propaganda machine. I contend that the left already controls 90% of the media and attempts to marginalize the other 10%.

    We have the Internet. Things are more transparent then they would be without it. Yes, they will attemp to take it away, and one thing we have going for us is that even the left wants their Internet and their fun.

    We have the power to spread the news to millions and to do it in seconds. More importantly, we have the power to congregate across miles and in seconds.

    The question now becomes, what are you going to do about it? What action are you going to take? What organization are you going to join? Will you put your money where your mouth is? Where will you get your education? Who will you educate in turn? What time sacrifice will you make? What will empower you and others?

    Or, are we just going to rail against the machine?

      YOU SAID IT BEST. WE NEED EVERYONE IN THIS COUNTRY TO READ WHAT YOU SAID, THEN GET UP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. IF NOTHING ELSE, VOTE THE BUMS OUT OF OFFICE. WHEN CONGRESS WITH AN APPROVAL RATING OF 7 TO 11% AND MOST ARE VOTED BACK IN, WE THE PEOPLE HAD BETTER WAKE UP OR WE WON’T HAVE A VOTE.

    I am thinking about getting off this site. There is too many people on here that talk out of their ass. I can not even understand where they are coming from. Too many people that blog on this site live in their own little worlds. I think I have had enough.

  • Piped Piper

    Another reason. I can not even find my comment. And they are out of date to when they post. See You Don’t Want To Be You…..

      What in hell did you say or what are you talking about. You wasted your time writing and my time ready your sh…. that I don’t even know why you wrote it.

    • Piped Piper

      What in hell are you talking about. You wasted your time writing and my time reading this bunch of sh….. Get a brain and write something that will make us all go in the same direction instead of around in Fu……ing circles.

    • Joy Thompson

      You say, “there is a hell of a big problem, called pigmentation”. What in the world does the color of skin have to do with a person’s ability to solve problems? You said the kind-of thing a racist would say.

  • Chris Condon

    An excellent analysis. The coming collapse could be an historic turning point. Up to now, the left has been incredibly lucky in being able to shift the blame for its own blunders. It will probably be impossible this time, though they will try hard. The outcome will probably be much better than during the Great Depression. During the 1930′s, there were only a handful of Americans who understood what the problem was and how to solve it. This time around, however, there are countless Americans who have read books by the likes of Murray Rothbard and Ludwig von Mises, to name only a few. There are today more people who understand the problem and what to do about it in Stamford, Connecticut than there were in the entire USA in 1930.

    I am not surprised by this tax hike. This is the first time in history a country has fought two wars and lowered taxes. Not to mention the war on terror. All together that could account for over 4 trillion in debt.
    Japan is actually the most in debt-ed nation with over 500% to GDP debt. Some would say that it could be because of FDR’s economic bill of rights. Which was added to there constitution after ww2 but omitted from ours.
    It is true that socialist governments tend to “run out of other peoples money” however I don’t think that our current gov meets that criteria.
    In some middle eastern countries such Saudi Arabia universal health care is paid for by oil money. Its a conundrum as to how to fund it here in the States. Maybe if a “socialist” gov nationalized the oil supply? Although that’s incredibly unlikely.

    The republicans will get blamed for taxes—-it will be said that the republicans wouldn’t go along with Obama. Obama campaigned on raising taxes and I don’t think people realized. We are now over 16 trillion in debt and it keeps going. The taxes will only help for 8 days. and what are they going to do when they drain the rich?? There aren’t enough rich people to give people STUFF they want !!!!!!!!!

      Now you know why the gun buying is going on, soon the government will run out of money and you will have to protect yourself. When the government said they were maybe going to ban the assault weapons they started buying them up. The ones that were on the fence. The is a big game for the liberals and it is going to blow up in their face..

      • Jeff

        Fewer and fewer people are buying more and more guns. Maybe we’ll eventually confine all the gun owners to one state. What state might that be? Texas? Alabama? Wyoming?

        • Piped Piper

          Take your pick, I think they are at least 30 RED states.

          • Jeff

            Romney carried, I believe, 23 states. My point was the trend is toward fewer people owning increasing numbers of guns.

        • Piped Piper

          Where would you get that information More guns to fewer people. Romney carried 23 states and the House of Representitives carried how many more. Even Michigan sent republican members. This isn’t about Obama, the liberals would like to think so. But After Obama policies the first 2 years the republicans took the house in 2010 and they decided to keep it because of the same policies and I think the amount of states the house of representitives is about 30.

          • Smilee

            Republicans lost seats in both the house and senate so they will be weakened next year in both houses while retaining the majority in the house but votes are counted by members voting and not states so you argument does not hold water

          • Jeff

            The only reason Republicans held the House is redisticting and gerrymandering. Democrats won more votes for House seats, but even in states Obama won handily, the Republicans got most of the seats. In Pennsylvania, Obama won by 10 points, the Democratic Senate Candidate won handily, and Democrats collected more votes than Republicans, but Republicans “won” 13 of 18 seats. Maybe Democrats will wake up and start voting in mid-term elections. They count too.

          • Smilee

            I agree with that too
