18 stats that prove...
friday, may 23rd, 2014
did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million?
[Full Title: "18 Stats That Prove That Government Dependence Has Reached Epidemic Levels".]
In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system. And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs? When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government. Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people. In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
Just check out the chart above. It comes from the Heritage Foundation, and it shows that 69 percent of all federal money is spent either on entitlements or on welfare programs …
So when people tell you that the main reason why we are being taxed into oblivion is so that we can “build roads” and provide “public services”, they are lying to you. The main reason why the government taxes you so much is so that they can take your money and give it to someone else.
We have become a nation that is completely and totally addicted to government money. The following are 18 stats that prove that government dependence has reached epidemic levels…
#1 According to an analysis of U.S. government numbers conducted by Terrence P. Jeffrey, there are 86 million full-time private sector workers in the United States paying taxes to support the government, and nearly 148 million Americans that are receiving benefits from the government each month. How long can such a lopsided system possibly continue?
#2 Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2-to-1 margin. But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.
#3 The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.
#4 Today, the federal government runs about 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years.
#5 Back in 1960, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 10 percent. In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 21 percent. Today, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.
#6 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the total number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to nearly 47 million.
#7 Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.
#8 It sounds crazy, but the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.
#9 According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps is now greater than the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
#10 According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.
#11 Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid. Today, more than 70 million Americans are on Medicaid, and it is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.
#12 The number of Americans on Medicare is projected to grow from a little bit more than 50 million today to 73.2 million in 2025.
#13 Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars over the next 75 years. That comes to approximately $328,404 for each and every household in the United States.
#14 If the number of Americans enrolled in the Social Security disability program were gathered into a single state, it would be the 8th largest state in the entire country.
#15 In 1968, there were 51 full-time workers for every American on disability. Today, there are just 13 full-time workers for every American on disability.
#17 Overall, the Social Security system is facing a 134 trillion dollar shortfall over the next 75 years.
#18 According to the most recent numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau, an all-time record 49.2 percent of all Americans are receiving benefits from at least one government program each month. Back in 1983, less than a third of all Americans lived in a home that received direct monetary benefits from the federal government.
Many will read this and will assume that I am against helping the poor. That is completely and totally not true. There will always be people that are impoverished, and this happens for many reasons. In many cases, people simply lack the capacity to take care of themselves. It is a good thing to take care of such people, whether the money comes from public or private sources. In every society, those that are the most vulnerable need to be looked after.
But it is a very troubling sign that the number of people on government assistance is now far, far greater than the number of people with full-time jobs. This is not a sustainable situation. The federal government is already drowning in debt, and yet more people become dependent on the government with each passing day.
The long-term solution is to get more Americans working or starting their own businesses, but the federal government continues to pursue policies that are absolutely killing the creation of jobs and the creation of small businesses in this country. So our epidemic of government dependence is going to continue to get worse.
And many of these programs are absolutely riddled with fraud and corruption. Just check out the following excerpt from a recent Natural News article…
To understand the extent of this fraudulent waste, go no further than Dr. Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who raked in $20.8 million from Medicare in 2012 alone. Dr. Melgen isn't the only one bathing in the fraud of this crony government program. Medicare dished out over $1 million to almost 4,000 doctors in 2012, according to the new data release analyzed by The Washington Post.
Jonathan Blum, principal deputy administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is calling on the public for help in identifying fraud. He says, “The program is funded by and large by taxpayer dollars. The public has a right to know what it is paying for. We know there is fraud in the system. We are asking for the public's help to check, to find waste, and to find potential fraud.”
Instead of fixing their own problems, they want us to help them do it.
And of course they always want more of our money to help fund these programs. In fact, according to Americans for Tax Reform, Barack Obama has proposed 442 tax increases since entering the White House…
• 79 tax increases for FY 2010,
• 52 tax increases for FY 2011,
• 47 tax increases for FY 2012,
• 34 tax increases for FY 2013,
• 137 tax increases for FY 2014,
• 93 tax increases for FY 2015.
Perhaps not coincidentally, the Obama budget with the lowest number of proposed tax increases was released during an election year: In February 2012, Obama released his FY 2013 budget, with “only” 34 proposed tax increases. Once safely re-elected, Obama came back with a vengeance, proposing 137 tax increases, a personal record high for the 44th President.
The more we feed the monster, the larger and larger it grows.
(And there's still a lot of days of 0sambo hell and agony left to go, on the "time clock", as of today.)
And yet poverty is not decreasing. In fact, the poverty rate has been at 15 percent or greater for three years in a row. That is the first time that has happened in decades.
Barack Obama promised to “transform” America, and yet poverty and government dependence have just continued to grow during his presidency.
Not that anyone really believes anything that he has to say at this point. In fact, one recent survey found that only 15 percent of Americans believe that Barack Obama always tells the truth and 37 percent believe that he lies “most of the time”…
A Fox News poll released Wednesday (4/23) shows that six out of every ten (60%) Americans believes that President Barack Obama lies to the American people, at least some of the time. A plurality – 37% – say that he lies “most of the time”, while another 24% say he lies “some of the time”. Another 20% say he lies once in awhile, while only 15% say that he never lies.
So what do you think?

A Day In The Life
The torrential rain pounding on the Condo's skylights and windows woke me on Friday, at 7:30am. I got up to a very chilly 59°F, heavy rain, t-storm 'enhanced' day. Still tired, I started the day with the usual Fresh-Squeezed OJ and had several mugs of steaming hot, French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee. I made Eggs Benedict w/ Ham Steak & Homefries, and looked out the front storm door as it poured. The garden's rain gauge indicated 2¾", just since last evening. An *** AREAL FLOOD WATCH *** had replaced yesterday's warning, and after checking the
While going thru the weather and news sites, this California wildfire headline jumped out at me, and I immediately thought of muslim terrorism, documented here and here and here. Plus, I'd bet $100 that the eco-terrorist groups, Earth First!, Greenpeace, Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and Earth Liberation Front (ELF), are involved in this arson, too. Yet, dipshit-dumbass lib-dem moron, Jerry Brown (IDIOT-CA) thinks it's due to "global warming".
While listening to the streaming Chris Plante Show until 12noon, I made some "comfort food", Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup, talked with my investment/retirement advisor, and began working-up some numbers for us to discuss next week. I listened to part of the Rush Show stream, but had to go out and get some errands done, and by 1pm, the rain passed east, sun came out and temps dropped briefly into the upper-40s. On the way home, I stopped at Rutter's and picked-up 2 quarts of Edy's Ice Cream, to treat
Up at 7am on Saturday, to a sunny day, birds chirping and a crisp 53°F, I started the coffee and OJ, and checked the weather sites. Nice weather ahead for a few days, at least. Except for the *** FLOOD WARNING *** looming like a Sword of Damocles on all local websites, it was like a Fall day. The local
Sunday was another beautiful, cool 42°F, Fall-like morning when I got up at 7am. I actually fired-up the furnace to take the chill off the Condo. With coffee, OJ and an English Muffin w/ Peach Preserves ongoing, I checked the weather and news websites. Then I remembered the shopping lists and
Monday morning was downright chilly, at 37°F, but at least the sun was out and it wasn't snowing. I was up at 6:30, make OJ and coffee, checked the usual weather and news sites, and made some Sunny Side Up Eggs & Homefries. The more I looked at what was left on my food shopping list, the less I wanted to make the trip; it could wait until later in the week. I did have some checks to deposit, but they also could wait until I visited Dad or Becky, perhaps tomorrow. I grabbed a nice, long shower, opened-up the Condo's windows and settled-in to listen to the Chris Plante Show until 1a, while doing paperwork and enjoying the rest of my Chemex® Drip Coffeemaker System's coffee. I FTP'd a boatload of computer files up to my server, for storage, and left at 11:15 for Dad's. After several
I had some Edy's Ice Cream, not as good as local Handel's, listened to the morning's missed streaming Chris Plante Show Podcast, and spent a few hours inventorying the "basement pantry", and rotating food stocks. No replenishment needs, in any category. Next up, was the streaming Mark Levin Show, from 6-9, and I then continued with the John Batchelor Show, just from 9pm-12:15am. I have to do several projects for my Sister tomorrow, and get some of my own delayed errands done. Wednesday is a haircut in Red Lion, and then down south to Rite Aid for the 4 Rx refills, and next over to Emerald Garden to pick-up lots of great Chinese food. Maybe. Heritage Lawn & Landscape is coming in to Dad's home on Thursday and Friday, weather permitting, to begin a medium lscp job where the large American Hollies and Dogwood were removed, and do his Spring maintenance. They're still 5-6 weeks behind, due to the weather; I'm just glad that I'm out of that business, after 22yrs. Closing-out the computer, arming the Condo, I opted for sleep.
The lawnmower guys' machines woke me at 7am on Tuesday, an already warm 63°F, cloudy day with light rain approaching from the west. Trying to shake-off the "dream cobwebs" in my head, I made coffee and had some Del Monte® Cling Peaches, for a change. More boxes had arrived for Dad and
I was up at 5am on Wednesday, to another cloudy, but cooler 56°F day. After coffee, some Del Monte® Mixed Fruit Chunks, I checked the weather and news. Massive t-storm were right on top of us, much more behind it, and ***SEVERE STORM WARNING *** notices were posted everywhere. Heavy rain, wind and hail
The t-storm cells passed thru sporadically all afternoon, into the evening, and the humidity hung like a fog in the air. I ran the AC to remove the uncomfortable moisture from the Condo. It's going to be a very warm, muggy Summer and Fall. The next few days would just be more of the same, then a brief sunny reprise, reverting to the month's final week of more t-storms and rainfall. By 11:15pm, I woke
If anyone really believes the US Gov't/ White Hut bullshit that we're having an "economic recovery", point them to this article at "Zero Hedge". Everywhere I go, I see a few more businesses closed, malls and shopping centers more emptied, more unemployed people and less economic activity. The US Govt lies to support Barry 0bummer's disastrous Marxist, racist, America-hating and destroying agenda.
The early morning t-storms and rain woke me at around 6am on Thursday, to a much-warmer and more humid 63°F day. After coffee and OJ, I checked the weather maps's forecast for the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday Weekend: ugly here in the East, and even worse in the Midwest. Swell. I had places to go and things to do, and a 2pm meeting, so I left at 9:15 for a banking meeting, Home Depot and drop-off Chinese food at both Becky's & Dad's. Back home by 12:30pm, I had a big plate of Chinese food for lunch, did some paperwork in preparation for my 2pm new realtor meeting, noticed that a *** SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING *** watch had just been posted, and left again at 1:45. After the meeting, I stopped by Dad's and he said that Heritage Lawn & Landscape Co had decided to wait until tomorrow to get started, due to the previous few days rain, and the downpours we'd had this morning. A dry-out day was needed. Speaking of downpours, another three or four red/purple cells hit the East York area as I was pulling back into my complex, and the streets looked like creeks, for 15-20 minutes. It was 5:50pm, and after getting settled-in, I downloaded the morning's missed streaming Chris Plante Show Podcast, for later listening, and tuned into the streaming Mark Levin Show, until 9pm, and the John Batchelor Show, from 9pm-11:30pm, while finishing-up this week's "Journal" entry, and FTPing it up to my server. I called it a day, shut down, armed the Condo and went up to sleep.
Tomorrow starts a new week here in the "Journal", and it portends to be very busy. Landscape projects at Dad's home, Becky's Condo and Sherry's home. I'm involved in the first two, and also need to make some quality time to get re-involed and help out Shery & son Corey, with the third. With the short Memorial Day work week, I need to divide my time to get it, or as much if it done. I've had worse time constraints to work with, so it's very possible. Sounds like fun!
The definition of the word conundrum is "something that is puzzling or confusing". Here are six conundrums today in the United States of America:
1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
Think about it! That pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st century. Makes you wonder who is doing the math.
These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:
1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works. And here's another one worth considering...
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't. Think about it... And last but not least,
3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.
Am I the only one missing something?
Enemies Of The State: YOU & ME!
If you don't think that the US Government is intentionally targeting, investigating and prosecuting-persecuting Conservative Americans, you're living in a dream world of warm sponge baths and fresh diapers. America is under attack from The Enemy Within©.
This intentional use of Federal Agencies – IRS, DoINJ, EPA, BLM, Dept Ag, Dept Int, OSHA etc – by The White House, demokkkRAT-nazi party, criminal unions and other corrupt, criminal, corrupt NGO entities, should make the hair on your neck stand-up.
Liberals have been filling government agencies, at all levels, with self-interested, job perpetuation, Marxist-socialist-leftist experts for many decades. Conservatives are a threat to them, their progressive commie agenda and way of life. If we truly had a government based on a Constitution and implemented by elected representatives, this kind of stuff wouldn't happen. But we don't, and it does.
Stupid, ignorant, racist, ghetto-rat, thug filth/trash, like US Rep Elijah Cummings (SCUM-MD) who is so corrupt, criminal and hate-filled toward America, Conservative Americans of all stripes, and the Tea Party, that he should be imprisoned for the rest of his lying, pathetic, miserable life, for treason. And US Sen Joe McCarthy, was more of an American than you'll ever be, racist asshole!
One of the Articles of Impeachment drawn up against Richard Nixon in July of 1974, was merely "threatening" to use the Internal Revenue Service to selectively audit political opponents. 0bummer-boy has now fully-weaponized the IRS against all of his political opponents, ordering multiple covert campaigns of intimidation, threats, and persecution of Tea Party and Conservative organizations, and those daring to criticize 0bummer-boy's Marxist, racist, socialist agenda.
Amazingly, Fox News did a series of special reports on the corrupt, criminal US Govt's use of agencies to harass, threaten, confiscate property without cause, audit, shut-down without cause, fine and threaten with prison and to harm and/or kill American businesses and citizens. Get some popcorn and watch these six YT videos of Fox News' Reports:
Make no mistake about it: The IRS Is A Criminal Organization. Here's the full movie, "CROSSHAIRS: The Internal Revenue Scandal" (54:59).
The corrupt, criminal FedGov is continuing to seize our rightfully-owned lands.
And, a two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner's cattle. This is NOT going to end well, as the Waco slaughter and Ruby Ridge murders didn't.
You Own It, demokkkRATs!
Congratulations to the asswipe demokkkRATs, irrelevant "Free Shit!" minorities and stupid young people on the Truly-Shitty Economy you've created and inherited. You now own it 100%, and you can't blame Bush, anymore. Bathhouse Barry ∅bummer did it all by himself. You voted for it, dumbassed idiots. Time to suffer with the rest of us, as your actions have dire consequences for the entire country. Nice going, low-information voter morons.

Loss of our freedoms as we have known them in the past, you own it.
A dictatorship, instead of a democracy that follows the Constitution, you own it.
Less take home pay and higher living costs, you own it.
Driving a car that looks like a child's toy, you own it.
Unending islamic shitfilth wars in the Middle East and Africa, you own it.
More government corruption and lies, you own it.
More toleration of extreme, fanatical and subhuman islamo-nazi fascist filth, you own it.
Terrorist attacks called "workplace violence incidents", you own it.
Your "revenge" instead of love of country, you own it.
President George W Bush is out of it now, and there is not another good man for you to villify and lie about.
Shit-for-brains, ∅bummer-asshole is a liar, traitor, racist, muslim, coward, bathhouse fag and doper, can't take responsibility for the damage he's inflicted upon America. It's 100% his fault. Prove me wrong, anyone!
In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it becomes impossible to clean-up this mess that YOU voted for. Yes, moronic ∅bummer-asshole idiots: YOU!
Your TSHTF Survival
Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in 2014. Don't ask why; I just do.
First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,
Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.
I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?
Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of 1963, Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?
Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.
BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,
This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!
Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!
TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.
We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.
I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?
Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!
Here's a very useful List of Barter Items, for when TSHTF. Get and stockpile those and more, if you know what's good for you and your family! Think I'm kidding? Better read this and think VERY carefully about it.
With the FBI already considering many US Citizens as "sovereign citizen extremists", are you ready for "Rex 84" & The FEMA Camps? A new bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives called the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645. This bill if passed into law will direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish
"Economic chaos" ahead? You betcha. Are you and your family ready for it? It IS coming, at out current rate of out-of-control government spending.
Before TSHTF, here are 20 Lessons From The Streets of Cairo. Worth reading, if you plan to survive.
And before TSHTF, here are Innumerable Lessons From The Collapse of Bosnia, in 1992. Also worth reading, if you plan to survive.
Do you know what an "EMP Attack" is? Now you do. *When* it happens, not *if*, we're all f•cked, unless we're prepared to live in the early-1800s. That's why I write this stuff.
Are you ready for Obama's (TRAITOR-IL) "October Surprise"?
What about access to land and fresh water? Right here's an article to address those concerns.
Looks like a "race war" is coming, thanks to the hate-filled nigga race-pimps Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakan and New Black Pampers®, and time is growing shorter and shorter before TSHTF.
Don't let the possibility of DHS watching your every move deter you in preparing for TSHTF; do it regardless. Your and your Family's safety & survival always comes first. Beware of what your neighbors will do if you're prepared and they're not.
State and local resistance to the detention provisions contained in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues to grow, rapidly-emerging as a nationwide movement against the illegal and unconstitutional Federal Jack-Booted-Thugs' powers.
America is already being turned into a giant prison camp, and 90% of Americans either go along with it or don't see it happening. I do.
When prepping, always plan your survival purchases first on paper; buy them afterward.
Here's another good preparedness/precious metals website, 321 Gold. No, I don't believe in gold & silver, for what's coming. I believe in *lead & brass*/*food & water* for that situation; the other stuff comes much, much later.
Here's a new "warning" about a solar-based EMP event. If it happens, TSHTF.
If Iran attacks America's infrastructure, we've got major problems. Are you prepped and ready for it, when it happens?

Obama: "Entrepreneurs Don't Build Businesses"
"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virginia. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:
"If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.
It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.
(Here's the video of that loony remark.)
However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.
Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.
But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.
As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.
Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.
In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.
When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don't build businesses. Ultimately, they're irrelevant. Take that for what you will." © Principles and Policy, July 14, 2012
Things Which Make Your Head Explode
Turd-sucking lowlife marxist, Barry 0bummer-boy – the Magic Mombasa Gay Mulatto Marxist MF'er – stops all traffic and creates a massive traffic jam with his shitbox motorcade, to play pitch-and-catch with some kids in a park? Only a moronic ghetto rat sambo would do such stupid shit!
PLay this YT Video's song about "Obama in Mom Jeans" w/ Full Intro - Greg Morton, and laugh your ass off at the Pansy-In-Chief in the White Hut/Crib: Barry 0bummer-sambo boy! I still have tears of laughter running down my cheeks. Go ahead; I'll wait!
Read this moronic bullshit from Johnny 'Boltneck Lurch' Kerry, the mashed potato-face Botox idiot at Foggy Bottom; I'll wait.
The civil rights ambulance-chasing, perpetually-aggrieved, racist bitch skank lawyer, Shanta Driver, who argued unsuccessfully before the Supreme Court to end Michigan's affirmative action ban, repeated/whined/moaned on Sunday, that the high court's decision was “racist.” Boo-fucking hoo, sambette. Crawl back under your slimy rock, scuzzbag.
"A new report out Tuesday says climate change might increase the price of Kellogg's Corn Flakes by 30 percent in the next 15 years." Well, fricking dumbass, it's the cost of the ethanol fraud production, eating-up the US corn supply, which is driving-up the costs, of everything made with corn, and ruining vehicle engines, everywhere else in the world.
Okay, women get "paid menstrual leave", but do guys get "paid erection leave"? Just wondering...
Soooooo, 50 of the 56 mentally-ill, liberal-demokkkRAT senators in the corrupt, criminal, do-nothing US Senate, are demanding that the Washington REDSKINS change their name? F•ck all of you morons to death! So sayeth Dan Snyder, the REDSKINS owner.
Liberal Media BS
The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.
Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.
Chris Plante, host of The Chris Plante Show on WMAL (DC) from 9-12, weekdays, said, "The most insidious power the media has, if the power to ignore." Think about what that really means and you can readily see what an evil force the corrupt, criminal, liberal-demokkkRAT-controlled, butt-kissing, fawning circlefest media assholes, are.
Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Wear your hip-waders; the bullshit is deep!
Inside The Army's Spectacular, Hidden Treasure Room.
Remember that ending scene out of Indiana Jones where the Ark of the Covenant is boxed up and wheeled through an endless government warehouse?
Did you know that that place actually exists?
I was hugely-pleased, a little stunned at the secrecy, but half-expecting a juicy trove of treasures.
It is called the Center of Military History. It is located 30 minutes outside Washington, D.C., at Fort Belvoir in Virginia. The building itself is very nondescript.
But behind a series of highly alarmed doors and long, cement, camera-laden hallways. It is the highly sophisticated, climate-controlled treasure room where the army keeps its most precious artifacts.
The facility was built for $24 million in 2010. The cavernous warehouse is typically shrouded in total darkness. Motion lights illuminate only the areas in which someone is walking.
If I could get tickets, I'd fork over my first-born child. Oh wait; I don't have one. Heh. I'd go there in a heartbeat.
Some People Just Need Killing
It's not my intention to be the judge here — that's God's "job" — but rather to "hasten the meeting" so that He can send the following subhuman filth to the "Fires of Hell", "River or Lake of Sulphur", or whatever He deems appropriate. I'd gladly/happily volunteer, at no cost to any of my Hard-Working, Fellow US Taxpayers, to gladly/gleefully/happily headshoot these murderous, lowlife dirtbags of all stripes — their skin-color doesn't matter one whit to me, at all — and rid American Society's innocents — especially our too-vulnerable, precious children and the frail, defenseless elderly — of the subhuman criminals who prey upon them, once-and-for-ever. And yes, I'd rather see one innocent man convicted and executed, than 10 murderers, robbers, child rapists-murderers freed, to rob, rape and murder again. Hey, call me an "Old Fashioned Conservative"! Too harsh? Nah. Someone needs to take out the trash! I volunteer.
Society's innocents — our precious, defenseless children and the frail, defenseless elderly — must be protected from predators, murderers, rapists, robbers and other subhuman filth, at all times and at any cost, IMO.
The 6th Commandment actually says: "Thou Shalt Not Murder". It does NOT say, "Thou Shalt Not Kill." I personally don't consider any summary-execution — except by subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic pigshit — as murder, in any way, shape or form. It's "Due-Justice-For-Crimes-On-This-Earth", IMO.
The Death Penalty is The Foundation of Government.
Yes, I agree with the premise of this article, that "the death penalty is a Noahic Covenant with God, in a post-flood world", and America should apply it every-damned-day, to those deserving death for their crimes against society and its innocents.
"100 years from now, I want the filthy, stinking subhuman islamic/muslim filth's childrens' childrens' childrens' children to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead because their legends tell of fire from the sky. I want them to hide in wet, dark caves and hellish-holes in the earth, shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters crawling over the earth, spitting-out death and destruction. I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with "If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you", and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obedience. I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea – the powerful Americans – destroyed their forefathers' wickedness."
So, illegal aliens make up 350,000 of the country's 2.3 million inmates. Or 1 in 7 prisoners is an illegal alien. Subhuman filth like this wetback POS need killing, not "3 hots and a cot". KILL THEM!
Oh, I get it, 0bama-sambo-boy: your f•cking corrupt VA is letting Vets die by the score on criminal "secret waiting lists", but a subhuman POS homo filth like "Chelsea Manning" can get hormone treatments, women's clothes and "sexual reassignment surgery" on the US Taxpayers' dime? Inject the f•ckbag full of DRANO! Throw his faggot ass into the GP (general prison population)! DIE, Manning, DIE!
Fat, stupid, ghetto rat sambo boy, 16-year-old student at Nimitz High School, 6'3" 325lbs, needs killing, for beating down a 66-yr old teacher. Watch the video of sambo boy pushing around a little old 66-year old lady. PUNK! Head shoot/kill him!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Chicago: Shithole Murder Capital of The USA, sambos just "keeping it real", baby.
NO, subhuman piece-of-shit, Christopher Bour, doesn't deserve life; he needs killing, for repeatedly sexually molesting an infant girl! KILL HIM and cleanse society! And shit-for-brain Sammy "The Idiot" Alito gave the murderous filth a stay-of-execution, to make sure he doesn't suffer, like the victim's horror of dying. Fuck you both: PUT A FUCKING BULLET THRU THAT SUBHUMAN'S HEAD! I volunteer to do it in one shot; dead immediately, no "pain" until he meets Satan and starts bathing in the lake of fiery sulfur for all eternity!
Yes, George Soros, a Jew-hating Jew, is a left-wing wacko, subhuman piece-of-shit, treasonous dirtbag for the commies, and needs killing. Here's my $1 for a heavy-duty garbage bag for his rotting carcass. Maggots got to eat, too.
The fat, stupid, illegal alien, wetback piece-of-shit lowlife dirtbag, Roy Ortiz, needs killing.
All of these child porn perverts should be summarily tried and executed; no jail time. KILL THEM!
