May Jobs Report Paints Startling Picture Of Economic Recovery

June 6, 2011 by  

May jobs report paints startling picture of economic recoveryThe United States economy appears to be sputtering into the summer months, as the latest unemployment rate has reached its highest level since January.

According to the Labor Department’s report, the jobless rate in May jumped to 9.1 percent, an increase from 9 percent in April. Nonfarm payroll employers added only 54,000 new workers last month, which is the fewest in eight months. Local governments took a big hit, losing approximately 28,000 jobs. Furthermore, private businesses hired only 83,000 new employees in May, the smallest monthly increase in nearly a year.

CNN reported that economists expected the unemployment rate to fall to 8.9 percent. Instead, employer confidence seemed to dramatically dwindle compared to April, when U.S. companies added 232,000 jobs.

Stock futures fell sharply after the government’s report was released on June 3. The Associated Press indicated that Dow futures dropped 146 points, or 1.2 percent, ahead of the opening bell. Standard & Poor’s 500 futures fell 16 points, or 1.3 percent.

“The employment data have confirmed the markets’ worst fears about a marked slowdown in U.S. economic activity, to the extent that any one report can be relied upon,” Alan Ruskin, an analyst at Deutsche Bank, told NPR.

    Obama is doing a splendid job! At reinacting FDR’s great depression that is. Cloward & Piven are smiling. One posthumously, but smiling none the less.

    Obama’s economic advisor, Lou Cypher cries out, Full speed ahead, onward towards the most castastrophic engineered economic colapse the world has ever witnessed

    • Al Sieber

      Michael, I second that!!

    • s c

      Michael, you were very polite in your estimation. Der Obummer has a good head start in destroying America’s economy (‘it’s for your own good, children’). To draw parallel, Hitler probably said in his own way that “we can.” He was wrong. Herr Obummer is also wrong.
      “Recovery” is not a part of Herr Obummer’s game plan. He’s busy giving away America to his ‘friends.’ Somnehow, we’re supposed to believe that his chums know what to do with America’s wealth. HA!
      Jopa, dream on. As for heroes, most conservative heroes are dead. Most of your “heroes” are alive, and therein lies the problem.
      I’d try to explain the difference to you, but I have serious doubts that you and your flunky bunkies give a damn about America.

      Audit of the Federal Reserve
      The first ever GAO (Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve was carried out in the past few months due to the Ron Paul, Alan Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill, which passed last year. Jim DeMint, a Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, led the charge for a Federal Reserve audit in the Senate, but watered down the original language of the house bill (HR1207), so that a complete audit would not be carried out. Ben Bernanke,Alan Greenspan, and various other bankers vehemently opposed the audit and lied to Congress about the effects an audit would have on markets. Nevertheless, the results of the first audit in the Federal Reserve’s nearly 100 year history were posted on Senator Sander’s webpage earlier this morning.
      What was revealed in the audit was startling: $16,000,000,000,000.00 (TRILLION) had been secretly given out to US banks and corporations and foreign banks everywhere from France to Scotland. From the period between December 2007 and June 2010, the Federal Reserve had secretly bailed out many of the world’s banks, corporations, and governments. The Federal Reserve likes to refer to these secret bailouts as an all-inclusive loan program, but virtually none of the money has been returned and it was loaned out at 0% interest. Why the Federal Reserve had never been public about this or even informed the United States Congress about the $16 trillion dollar bailout is obvious —the American public would have been outraged to find out that the Federal Reserve bailed out foreign banks while Americans were struggling to find jobs.
      To place $16 trillion into perspective, remember that GDP of the United States is only $14.12 trillion. The entire national debt of the United States government spanning its 200+ year history is “only” $14.5 trillion. The budget that is being debated so heavily in Congress and the Senate is “only” $3.5 trillion. Take all of the outrage and debate over the $1.5 trillion deficit into consideration, and swallow this Red pill: There was no debate about whether $16,000,000,000,000 would be given to failing banks and failing corporations around the world. In late 2008, the TARP Bailout bill was passed and loans of $800 billion were given to failing banks and companies. That was a blatant lie considering the fact that Goldman Sachs alone received 814 billion dollars. As is turns out, the Federal Reserve donated $2.5 trillion to Citigroup, while Morgan Stanley received $2.04 trillion. The Royal Bank of Scotland and Deutsche Bank, a German bank, split about a trillion and numerous other banks received hefty chunks of the $16 trillion.
      “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.” – Bernie Sanders(I-VT)
      When you have conservative Republican stalwarts like Jim DeMint(R-SC) and Ron Paul(R-TX) as well as self identified Democratic socialists like Bernie Sanders all fighting against the Federal Reserve, you know that it is no longer an issue of Right versus Left. When you have every single member of the Republican Party in Congress and progressive Congressmen like Dennis Kucinich sponsoring a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, you realize that the Federal Reserve is an entity onto itself, which has no oversight and no accountability. Americans should be swelled with anger and outrage at the abysmal state of affairs when an unelected group of bankers can create money out of thin air and give it out to megabanks and supercorporations like Halloween candy. If the Federal Reserve and the bankers who control it believe that they can continue to devalue the savings of Americans and continue to destroy the US economy, they will have to face the realization that their trillion dollar printing presses can be stopped with five dollars worth of bullets. [Regardless of whether this money is fiat money (money printed with nothing of value to back it), if it is a currency forced on society and the world, with enforcement by the Fed, IRS, the U.S. military, et al, --which it is-- the acts of the Federal Reserve are, in essence, the transfer of greater wealth to the rich insider banks and corporations, while the rest of the world grows poorer, and as the value of this funny money grows less and less in purchasing power. These insider banks, etc., then, exchange this funny money for gold and silver, the real wealth of the world, which, then, reinflates the world with more and more devaluing federal reserve notes. This, then, creates hyper-inflation, increasing the cost of all resources and commodities, while gold and silver climb to never-seen-before levels of value. This is how the Federal Reserve insiders steal the wealth of the world and why the rich get richer while the poor get poorer. It's the world's largest Ponzi scheme! The Federal Reserve is nothing but a front for a small group of families who run a very large and successful white collar criminal Ponzi scheme. This criminal institution should be seized by the U.S. Treasury department and all assets frozen, and returned to the coffers of the U.S. Treasury in order to settle the U.S. debt and help begin to balance the U.S. deficit. All banks (listed below) should be forced to return the money received by the Federal Reserve. All families in ownership of the Fed and their agents should be located, caught, tried and jailed for grand larceny and treason against the people of the U.S.A. All government agents who protect and help facilitate this criminal organization should be fired from the positions and similarly tried and jailed for grand larceny and treason. Meanwhile, Congress should return our country to its original monetary system (Lincoln greenbacks backed by precious metals) and, again, do its duty to regulate the coining of the currency of America as per the U.S. Constitution.] The list of institutions that received the most money from the Federal Reserve can be found on page 131 of the GAO Audit and are as follows.. Citigroup: $2.5 trillion ($2,500,000,000,000) Morgan Stanley: $2.04 trillion ($2,040,000,000,000) Merrill Lynch: $1.949 trillion ($1,949,000,000,000) Bank of America: $1.344 trillion ($1,344,000,000,000) Barclays PLC (United Kingdom): $868 billion ($868,000,000,000) Bear Sterns: $853 billion ($853,000,000,000) Goldman Sachs: $814 billion ($814,000,000,000) Royal Bank of Scotland (UK): $541 billion ($541,000,000,000) JP Morgan Chase: $391 billion ($391,000,000,000) Deutsche Bank (Germany): $354 billion ($354,000,000,000) UBS (Switzerland): $287 billion ($287,000,000,000) Credit Suisse (Switzerland): $262 billion ($262,000,000,000) Lehman Brothers: $183 billion ($183,000,000,000) Bank of Scotland (United Kingdom): $181 billion ($181,000,000,000) BNP Paribas (France): $175 billion ($175,000,000,000)

        I would like to know the source of this information; it’s a little hard to swallow.

  • Wayne937

    Send this one to all your Congress Members and keep for future use:

    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

    If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ….

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

    They and they alone, have the power.

    They and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…

    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    • Louie

      Wayne, everything you said in your comment is true except for the last two statements. We do hold them responsible for their actions…we just do not follow through. We can not vote “them” out of office. Why, because the ones we vote into office will carry on business as usual. It has gotten to the time in our lives that we are going to have to send “King George” back to the “Fatherland” again…and this time do not let him come back.

      • Wayne937

        Louie, I know it will not do any good to say this, but when people don’t know anything about their candidate they are voting for, and are just to plain lazy to learn, these folks should stay at home, and let others do the voting for them. I would never vote for a man unless I knew something about his past, and his voting record.

        • Archangel

          You must not be a member of a “UNION”! They vote for whom they are told to, and most go along without question!

          • Disgusted

            Amen to that. We are struggling with that scenario here in Wisconsin right now. They don’t want to give up anything they have, but what they have is not sustainable for our state’s future. We can’t afford them anymore. The Unions have negotiated themselves out of reality, their demands are not feasible if we want to survive as a state and they don’t want to see it.

          • Wayne937

            You are right, Archangel, but responsible people think for themselves, and vote for what is right for the country. This benefits the whole country as well as those who do not use common sense when they vote. They are just too stupid to see it in the short run. This is what is tearing this country down, and these type of people are to stupid to see it. They should not vote if they are told who to vote for to further they own agenda.

          • Wayne937

            Archangel, I was a member of a union while I was working. The unions started out as a good thing to protect the members. However, over the years they have driven corporations out of the country. You know that by the way it used to be. The automobile factories at one time had hundreds of thousands of workers, look at them today. Union protect their members even when they are wrong. I have never upheld protecting a worker when he/she was wrong. In my opinion, this and the other stringent demands driven out our corporations we once had in the country.

          • http://WeThePeople Jean

            I usualy contribute to the National Police & State Police Fund – but this last time I torn up the form. There it was – located in Wisconsin and affiliated with the AFL-CIO. RIP RIP RIP

          • http://www.chinoteaparty.com Sikntyrd2011

            Thanks for that information, Jean! I do contribute to the Police State Fund…and the Firefighters, I will look more closely at these things from now on. I am a member of a union and I do support the police and the firefighters but after I experienced sitting on the Board, I realized that they spend the members’ contributions like the government politicians’ do. Money not from their very own pockets so…contributions to events like golf that is a fundraising for some preferred community group that would entitle the Board to tickets to play golf, which usually there are Boardmembers that are golfers (surprise, surprise!), or to tickets to a fundraising event for some Democrat politician, or fundraising for a Boardmember’s preferred non-profit. Then there are the events held in different member organizations that not even all the members could go to. You are right that they back up lazy member’s from being terminated, but it is up to the Board to change those rules on how much and how far they will protect the employees. I managed to have those rules amended while I was on the Board.

        • CARSON44

          Remember back to when you were in High school, the phrase,” Taxation without representation” it was at the heart of the Revolution that started this country.

          This day it is the same phrase only twisted that will in a short time finish this country. That phrase, “Representation without taxation”. Think of all the voters that pay no tax but are represented, they’ll vote for any tax. Why not? They don’t pay tax. Their mantra,” Vote for the candidate that puts the most in “YOUR” pocket.”

      • Lost in Paradise

        Louie you got that right!

    • Lana

      Wayne, it all is logical and correct, but one: in a year 2011 the most of the people got money from government then people who pay for it. There is no way to vote 545 out of office because of the democracy: we do not have enough “vote-power’ to do soo. And that 545 did not get there because of our vote. The ones who get them there will keep them there for their own pay-check forever. And it is more people who get pay-check from government then those who pay in it. The ones who pay do not pay only for officials of cource but for everything else, including pensions of teachers, police, military, security forces( if to beleave gov. payroll USA has more then 800000 people working in security( CIA, FBI, NCA, ect), FDA, NSF, Planned Parenthood, etc. Even the only number of organisation on Gov-t pay, including privet sub-contractors, is almost infinite. Future for suckers who pay for it? Suck it up1 BUT there is a good part in it : 14.4 tril. $ of it paid by NOT Americans (debt) but suckers around the world. Practicaly we live under”Democratic World Government” now. Can you vote out that one?

      • Wayne937

        Lana, you do it over a period of several elections. You are right, you can never do it in one election since the election cycles are staggered. It could be done if enough people would only wake up to the fact that this country is going down hill, and we will be a lot worse each year in the future. Who would want to see this? This hurts eveyone, even the Liberals when we can make them see it. Most folks just has to be educated, and hopefully we can do that on forums such as this one. Thanks to Bob Livingston, and others, who have this type of forums.

        • http://www.chinoteaparty.com Sikntyrd2011

          What I am hoping for Wayne937 is that the individuals who want to run for office from the Libertarian Party or Green Party or other political party…that align themselves more with conservative principles…please run as Republicans so that all conservatives can easily vote for the RIGHT person and that we do not have to split our votes. Let all conservatives vote anyone…anyone…other than a liberal Democrat. But we would not get them out of office since we have all those union members, Hollywood potheads, special interest groups, blind misguided voters keep voting for the liberal Democrat because they would get what they want from these liberal politicians. We need every conservative to vote for the one to get these liberal idiots out of office. Talk to your voting children, friends, and relatives during dinner, get togethers, etc. 2012 is very important!!! If you are in California, volunteer for the Election Integrity Project!

          • Wlmitch1

            I agree with most of your comment, but be careful about the Green Party. They are a bunch of enviro-Marxists. I would like to see members of the U.S. Constitution Party run as Republicans in future Republican Primary elections. They are real Constitutional Conservatives.

        • http://NA SPARKY SAYS

          Wayne ,the liberals don’t have the mentality to change.First all the media hast to change,except Fox news they carry both sides.the others as far as i concerned are committing treason STRONG WORDS BUT THE TRUTH HURTS. Only now it is time to get out the sledge hammer and drive it into the stupid left leaning knee jerks.
          Amen

        • rulken

          Wayne your so right, may I add that you put it very plainly, and easy for everyone to follow, without all the name calling.
          “We The People” have an obligation to do the right thing as well, and that means, getting out to vote, and set the limits as to what we want or don’t want. We The People need to tell congress that we want all lobbyist, banned from government hearings, and any Representative that makes a deal with a lobbyist, be sentenced to a min.of 20 years in prison for violating such trust, and every law that they do pass, they too have to abide by.
          Our forefathers are rolling over in their graves, there should never be a double standard, ANYWHERE in this country, especially in our governments “elected, or appointed” positions.
          Yes, we won’t be able to untie this terrible knot that the Obama Administration has been working on but, we have an obligation to our future generations, to make this country great once again.
          To follow diligently all their moves, and voting records in the congress, and the senate.
          Now we see why the Obama machine wanted to prevent us from communicating with each other, through this wonderful media called the Internet! We all need to roll up our sleeves, and dig in for the long run. We can and must do this for the future of our nation, through sites like this and many others that the Tea Party has springing up all across America! Thank God, for people like Wayne937, who with a clear and factual mind, to share his thoughts that may inspire more of us to do OUR DUTY, and vote responsibly.
          God Bless America, and have Mercie on any one, that may conspire against Her.

        • Lost in Paradise

          You are dreaming a big dream about voting, and that is exactly the thing they use to control us. THe VOTE.

    • SherylS

      No, Louie, I think Wayne’s last statement is EXACTLY what we should do. We, the people, should rise up together and vote ALL of them out of office! Vote in only newcomers who are NOT professional politicians, but rather, well….. I guess “idealists” is the term I’m looking for. With all of the house and 1/3 of the Senate replaced in one fell swoop (and the rest of the Senate gone within the following four years), the newcomers could start with a clean slate, instead of learning how the manipulate the “system” the same way it’s always been done.

      VOTE THEM ALL OUT — EVERY ONE!!!

    • http://google gary gerke

      Your asessment is right on the money!! There is no need for me to make a comment, you said it all! THANKS!

  • Wayne937

    I wonder now many people we can get this one out to?

    Air Force One:

    This is from Mark Knoller of CBS. The pilots and crew of Air Force One are flying more hours than a rookie on a beer run. They are tired of it too, and are adding more crew to Air Force-1, – I know this for a fact because I’m one of the instructors that trains the crews. Our company (Atlas Air) has had the Air Force-1 and E-4 contract for over two years and I’ve been doing it for about 8 months now.
    Last year (2010) Obama flew in Air Force One 172 times, almost every other day. White House officials have been telling reporters in recent days that the Democrat doesn’t intend to hang around the White House quite so much in 2011. They explain he wants to get out more around the country because, as everyone knows, that midterm election shellacking on Nov. 2 had nothing to do with his health care bill, over-spending or other policies, and everything to do with Obama’s not adequately explaining himself to his countrymen and women. And with only 673 days remaining in Obama’s never ending presidential campaign, the incumbent’s travel pace will not likely slacken.
    ****At an Air Force-estimated cost of $181,757 per flight HOUR (not to mention the additional travel costs of Marine One, Secret Service, logistics and local police overtime), that’s a lot of frequent flier dollars going into Obama’s carbon footprint. We are privy to some of these numbers thanks to CBS’ Mark Knoller, a bearded national treasure trove of presidential stats. According to Knoller’s copious notes, during the last year, Obama made 65 domestic trips over 104 days, and six trips to eight countries over 22 days. Not counting six vacation trips over 32 days. He took 196 helicopter trips, signed 203 pieces of legislation and squeezed in 29 rounds of left-handed golf.
    Obama last year gave 491 speeches, remarks or statements.**** That’s more talking than goes on in some entire families, at least from fatherly mouths.
    In fact, even including the 24 days of 2010 that we never saw Obama in public, his speaking works out to about one official utterance every 11 waking hours. Aides indicate the “Real Good Talker” believes we need more.
    Obama spends nearly half his presidency outside Washington, plans to travel more. Vacationer-in-Chief Spends $1.75 Million to Visit Hawaiian Chums. Obama has spent over $100 million taxpayer dollars flying around in Air Force One, and probably another $100 million on his entourage. Obama is just another tin-pot dictator living lavishly at the expense of his subjects.
    And we seniors have to “tighten our belts” because we aren’t getting a COLA again this year… and none last year!

    The above are facts. How can the Liberals defend anything like this. Here is a man that is in the know and I have given the Liberals the facts. The Liberals can never come up with any unbiased facts. They have to go to another Liberal website, similiar to the Huffington Post, to get more hot air to support their twisted opinions.

    • Cawmun Cents

      Liberals love this cash cow named Obama because he is everything they always wanted to be publicly,but were afraid to be publicly.Now if anything is uttered against the policies of Obama,they can just shout racist.They used that technique before,but Obama made it seem legitimate.The truth is that they have no real defense for who this man is,or what he does.He is popular.That is his only redeeming factor to the left.He represents the Hollywood style ideal.Look good and act as if you know what you are talking about.That is what actors do.In ancient times they were known as hypocrites(an apt title for today,dont you agree?).The left is notorious for making its leaders look good even if they lack any real substance.Just look at North Korea,and their worship of Kim Jong Il.Obama is a figurehead for the masses to adore,and the fact that he lacks any real character or integrity,means little to leftist popularity polls.That is why he is so popular with the left,BECAUSE he lacks those traits.They are used to setting up a figurehead for the masses to adore,and he represents the very pinnacle of that ideaology.He is basically untouchable by progressive politically correct standards.Perfect for their mission.Why do you think he was ushered forth to become President?Having no legitimate background and dubious political experience makes him pefect for the job of figurehead.Now the powers that have such contempt for everything American,can work behind the scenes and when a question is asked,they just have the media bring up racism due to the figurehead being half black/african american(or whatever the next politically correct terminology is going to be).It is the perfect solution to keep secret the destruction of this nation,under the guise of “Change we can believe in”.Classic Marxist tactics for the new generation.They hadnt seen them for awhile so when they were brought forth,it just seemed like the cool new thing to do.Now you know why the left is enamored with Obama.Even his name denotes a muslim heritage,and he is definitely a leftist.Maybe Glenn Beck isnt as bats___t crazy as he is made out to be,huh?-CC.

      • eddie47d

            You are more naive than I thought C.C. No different than you calling Obama the Messiah. Smoke and mirrors once again for your side. Liberals do not call Obama the Messiah but you do. The USA is not creating large sector jobs anymore (auto,manufacturing,etc.)Unless that changes then it won’t matter who is President because unemployment will remain high.NAFTA killed the goose that laid the golden egg and Bush cracked the rest of the eggs. Obama hasn’t a clue in how to put Humpty Dumpty back together again. I also don’t see one candidate on the other side who will bring jobs back to America either. So your blame game is solving nothing and keeps us in a darker hole.So take yourself out to lunch and have another baloney sandwich.

        You are very smart, and I sincerely mean that. I was told, and should obviously research it for myself, that to be the President of the United States, BOTH of your parents have to be United States Citizens. That only makes good sense, because that way, you would be that which you are directing and guiding. Apparently Barry Soterro, who went to school in a moslem nation and was schooled by Marxists clearly does not belong as head of this nation! Arnold Schwarznegger would have run for President if the rule of law was not that both parents had to be United States Citizens. The question is: how come “We The People” can’t get rid of Barry? (AKA; Barrack Hussein Obama) It’s probably more to do with the corrupt owned media, but seriously, this person (with 16 different social security numbers) does NOT need to be running for President again, and needs to be removed from this high office. Cheeseburger eating, basketball bouncing, cigarette sucking marrionettes should NOT be running OUR country!!!!!

        • Cawmun Cents

          The reason you wont be able to get rid of him is because of the above-cited thinking.You cannot rid yourself of an image.Since Obama is the image that the left is projecting at this point in time,he will be kept as long as there is reality shows on television.As long as the baby boomers can keep the theatrical version of president available,he will be worshipped by them all.Ever notice that an ever increasing amount of political potential is given to those who are attractive by modern standards?That should be a warning to everyone to avoid being dragged into a bad situation based upon aesthetics.To”look good and only appear to be useful”is the leftist creedo.Warning:This is what make Hollywood a dangerous substitute for reality.If you think drugs cause people to hallucinate,just think of Roman aesthetics as a basis for good policy.WE ARE HEADED FOR DISASTER!-CC.

    • Wayne937

      Baba, you are right. Obama has another 1 1/2 year to destroy this nation. He is certainly working hard to do this. The Liberals do not see this, or simply do not care. Are we going to give this Muslim Comunist another 4 years to finish us off completely? I’ll do my best to keep this from happening. It is hard for me to believe how any human being could still be backing this Muslim Communist. They have to be of the same caliber. I think the Liberals agenda must be the fact that Obama are promising the masses a free hand out that we all work so hard for. If all the people are wanting this free hand out, do they think the money will be coming from the Chinese. I feel that the Chinese will eventually put a stop to all this nonsense and that will be the end of the country. We will be like Grease, bankrupt.

    Great post about the liar in chief and you didn’t even get to the queen Michelle. last dress she bought i mean the taxpayers was 2000 dollars.that is 10 peoples cola checks .i guess its o.k. let them eat cake.

    • Wayne937

      Frank, I am so tired of seeing this Muslim Communist Liar destroy our nation. He was telling a group of Chrysler Employees up in Toledo two days ago how Chrysler had paid the debt back to the taxpayer. The very next day, I heard a gentlemen on TV that said Chrysler still owes the taxpayers around 7 million dollars. That is 7,000.000,000. I wrote out the last amount just to show the Liberals as I am sure that a lot of them would not understand the former way I wrote it.

      • JUKEBOX

        Only their Union bosses have any concept of that much money, which is close to what they are paid per year.

      • SherylS

        Wayne, you said seven million (7,000,000), but you wrote out seven billion (7,000,000,000). Which is it?

  • Raggs

    Surprize, Surprize… You know that this will have to be Bushes fault.

    • Wayne937

      Raggs, of course this current group of Liberals will be blaming Bush for the rest of their lives since they will not take the responsibility themselves, and blame Muslim Communist Obama. That is a cop out as far as I am concerned, especially when it is worse today than it was back in 2008. Let me ask a question; are you better off today than you were back in 2008? My prediction will that it will even be worse next year than it is now. I am going to prognosticate that Obama is going to be a one term president just like his predecessor, Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Peanut Man.

  • Wayne937

    I heard a gentleman on TV this morning say that Obama had been told not to say that the car had been driven in the ditch anymore as we are still there after 2 1/2 years. Now if you notice, he is using the words a “bump in the road” instead. I heard him tell the Chrysler Employees that the other day. Why can’t people see through this windbag? I think they do. They just want all the freebies that he has prominsed them that we are borrowing from the Chinese. We all know, except the Liberals, of course, that China will be want to get this money back some day.

    • Dan az

      Its to late I read over the weekend that they have been taking the money back in large sums and they don’t hold much anymore.Short term notes had been put into long term but that has stopped and if I can find that article I’ll post it.

      • Wayne937

        Thanks, Dan. What this means is the government will just print more money which will drive up inflation ever further than what it is now. Gasoline, groceries, our most important items, as well as all consumer goods will be rising. Glen Beck has been saying this for 3 years now. The Goon Liberals has been laughing, and making fun of him for saying it. I think the laugh will eventually be on the Liberals and the rest of us for Obamanomics. Gasoline and groceries was not this high when Glenn was prediction this. I think we had all watch and listen to what Glenn has to say. I think he can see things that the rest of us cannot see.

    Capitalism works best for individual prosperity raising all boats. But as a political tool capitalism serves as the best way to separate people.

    Feeding an overpopulating poor nation of people before they learn to govern their passions is the work of a cruel or foolish heart. What better way to teach the fool hearted than to have these nations overwhelm them.

    Cawmun Cents, You must remember eddee is another racist government ward who just his special minority status. As with all minorities, they think they need to be coddled and get special treatment and lie off of someone’s taxed labor. When these beltway greaseballs blow about cutting waste, go to any damned reservation and see all the food that is dumped and buried or used to feed hogs, because it has to be prepared and his tribal wards of the government, will not expend the energy to prepare the food. When minorities learn to get off their sorry rears and produce something useful and hold down a job in the real world, shed the poor me crap there will no be the racist crap, even though use white eyes and white bread people are giving them the funds to feast and f–k off all the time. Now I hope eddee will tell me the land was taken from them. Hells bells they killed off and did not give the little tribes they beat, a truck load of freebies in perpatuity and land to live on for free that was won in battle. Just more bs PCed crap from the beltway.

      I saw Charlie Rangel last night, saying that he was only counted for 3/5 of a vote at one. He inferred that it was racist Southerners that got that law passed, but it was the Northern states that demanded it.

      • Wlmitch1

        The South had slaves and the North had non-citizen immigrants. The Constitution calls for counting all U.S. Citizens in each Congressional district as one person. It excluded Indians not taxed, and all others as three fifths of a person. Other than Indians, it made no mention of race or ethnicity whatsoever. The North did not want slaves to be counted because that would increase the South’s number of Representatives, while the South did not want non-citizen immigrants to be counted because that would increase the North’s number of Representatives. Here is the entire text from Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution:

        “The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members
        chosen every second Year by the People of the several
        States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifi-
        cations requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch
        of the State Legislature.

        No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have
        attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven
        Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not,
        when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he
        shall be chosen.

        Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned
        among the several States which may be included within
        this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which
        shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of
        free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term
        of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of
        all other Persons. The actual Enumeration shall be made
        within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress
        of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of
        ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct. The
        Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every
        thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one
        Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made,
        the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to chuse
        three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode-Island and Providence
        Plantations one, Connecticut five, New-York six, New
        Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland
        six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five,
        and Georgia three.

        When vacancies happen in the Representation from any
        State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of
        Election to fill such Vacancies.

        The House of Representatives shall chuse their
        Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole
        Power of Impeachment.”

        According to the third paragraph, my father’s Eastern European grandparents and my mother’s Balkan grandparents, all immigrants, would be counted as three-fifths as a person until they became naturalized U.S. Citizens.

    Here is the strategy of the next election for the current idiots; we inherited a far worse economy then we thought and it will take much longer to get out of this.

    Seeing how the latest stats, says that married family households are now at under 50 percent. So I guess all married couples should get a special status to get free food, shelter and pay no taxes. Since blacks are at 76% percentage of single female run house holds, and over 80% out of wedlock births, and as for indians, mexicans, and other minorities don’t like a married ranking. Pedophile worshipping muslims are pretty hard to classify, since women are less status than a dog in cluding their daughters. And we all know dems are in favor of anything abhortant or against acceptable behavior. Just look at their leadership and congressional behavior as a guyide, they raise in rank and stature in the party orfice, instead of disappearing into the sunset.

    jopa, as usual you are talking out you exit vent again. Before your butt brain liberals dreamed up more regulations and thereoized problems that never happen and premitting process was fast and simple for on land drilling and the USA Treasury was getting money. There is places in the Rocky Mt that crude seeps out on surface, the 1.2 million wilderness area that was created has oil at less than a 1,000 foot, because it can not be used either for timber, minerals of any kind, or any roads put in or put out any wild fires. In Colo hot mix plants have been recalibrated for raw crude, because of all the tank farms can not handle the expansion of stored crude. For every barrel of oil, 15% is heavy tar or gear greases. At least 62% can be in to diesel fuel real cheap, using costs now it is about 28 cent per gallon,8-12% of a barrel is jet fuel. The rest is different grades of gas, another liberal bs plan that doesn’t work and never will, it just wastes taxpayers money.. When diesel was the cheapest fuel by at least 60 cents a gallon, that is until libatards feel for the green airy fairy crap, most idiots like you, eddee and definately karolyn who think battery powered match box crap is answer. So every hour the marxist/communist dumocraps are in any elected position citizens will paying way more for food, shelter, and be unemployed at greater numbers, think these puke bast–ds care about America.

    Of course there is high unemployment – and it’s not going to get any better. There are very few jobs left in our country.

    ‘FOLLOW THE MONEY’ is a statement that has very strong merit when it comes to why / how our government operates the way it does. The Constitution states that the People may petition Congress for change. What we have is the Money People hire a lobbyist to be their representaive of ‘The People’. The lobbyist then plys the politician with favors (cash, gifts, other benefits) to vote for what the Money People want. If you stop and think about it, why do you think there are so many ‘Career Politicians’? Because over time it has been discovered that following the money is very rewarding. Until we can vote in honest people, then this type of activity will continue. GOD HELP US, PLEASE.

    For some strange reason back in the 60s 70s, work in manufacturing slowly in the dark of the night slipped into somwhere , maybe to nowheresville, just left without rails to carry it all, I think it was trucked away. It all left town / city with shifting down or up gears, and the deisel trucks whinned on the freeway with moe. The tanning hide factory, the shoe factory, the wool spinning mill, the cotton mills left first. . American Can up in a northern state packed up, and rolled in Pennsylvania, leaving many unemployed 60s 70s people , both young and old, who had a steady but not high wage.. Mfging slipped and slide, into first base or fourth base , ahome run, home i think it is said, but not for our American home, and peoples , it was for another country. The most we were told was the owners of the great factorys wanted to make a better profit. I can’t quite believe that. In order to move, they I would assume have to build a building elsewhere, train and workers, One does not learn how to mac a loafer in a day, or without pay , learn as you go. Must have been a lot of seconds in that attempt . Many huge hulks of mills dotting the states of New England . Now empty milsl, with no lights shiinng security in the dark. The sky had just the moon hanging like in sadness, peeking thru the mill windows at the entirely empty wooden floors, Every piece of mill machines were unbolted from the floors and gone. Leaving people to make jobs , or start another little new business, sandwich shops coffee shops to many new business of the same kind. One wonders where the people come from that buy in shops. And those now are empty,too. Some staring out at you along the sidewalks. Another no wheres ville, coming soon. When are the mills coming home. It might not be the highest pay, but it is a pay check. Just resolve to believe less is more. In your tiny home or apt.
