here's how bad it really is
friday, september 6th, 2013
let me see if I have this right. Barry 0bummer has been running around the country taking credit for an "economic recovery", but the truth is that things have not gotten better under 0bummer. By all available metrics, they've gotten worse, much worse and just frigging terrible.
Truth be told, Barry 0bummer was elected by the color of his skin, rather than by the content of his character.
Compared to when he first took office, a smaller percentage of the working age population is employed, the quality of our jobs has declined substantially and the middle class has been absolutely shredded.Let me get this straight: we've passed a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, signed by a president that also hasn't read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke. What could possibly go wrong?
If we are really in the middle of an "economic recovery", why is the homeownership rate the lowest that it has been in 18 years? Why has the number of Americans on food stamps increased by nearly 50% while 0bummer has been in the White Crib/Hut? Why has the national debt grown more than $6 trillion larger during the 0bummer era? 0bummer should not be "taking credit" for anything when it comes to the economy. In fact, he should be deeply apologizing to the American people.
Obummer is being dangerously-delusional if he thinks that he is actually "running the economy". The Federal Reserve has far more power over the US economy and the US financial system than he does. But the corrupt, butt-kissing mainstream media loves to fixate on the presidency, so presidents always get far too much credit or far too much blame for economic conditions.
But if you do want to focus on "the change" that has taken place since Barry 0bummer entered the White Crib/Hut, there is no way in the world that you can claim that things have actually gotten better during that time frame. The cold, hard reality of the matter is that the US economy has been steadily declining for over a decade, and this decline has continued while Obummer has been living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
It is getting very tiring listening to Obama supporters try to claim that 0bummer has improved the economy. That is a false claim that is not even remotely close to reality. The following are 33 shocking facts which show how badly the US economy has truly tanked since 0bummer became president... plus another fact which 99% of America has never tallied-up:
2) Since 0bummer has been president, seven out of every eight jobs that have been "created" in the US economy have been part-time jobs.
3) The number of full-time workers in the United States is still nearly 6 million below the old record that was set back in 2007. There are nearly 90 million people out of work now, in America.
4) It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53% of all American workers now make less than $30,000 per year. The American Middle Class is being rapidly destroyed.
5) 40% of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968.99 weeks of UC (Unemployment Compensation) is the equivalent to an Associate Degree from any College in America.
7) During the first four years of 0bummer, the number of Americans "not in the labor force" soared by an astounding 8,332,000. That far exceeds any previous four year total. Ever.
8) According to the US Census Bureau, the Middle Class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie, than has ever been recorded before.
10) When 0bummer entered the White Crib/Hut, the mortgage delinquency rate was 7.85%. Today, it is 9.72%.
12) When 0bummer first became president, 12.5 million Americans had manufacturing jobs. Today, only 11.9 million Americans have manufacturing jobs.
13) Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4,000 per year, during that time span.
14) The poverty rate has shot up to 16.1%. That is actually higher than when the "War On Poverty" began in 1965.
15) During 0bummer's first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day.If you think health care's expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free.
16) When Barry 0bummer entered the White Crib/Hut, there were about 32 million Americans on food stamps. Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.
17) At this point, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history. That number has risen by 57%, since the 2006-2007 school year.
18) When Barry 0bummer took office, the average price of regular gasoline was $1.84 per gallon. Today, it is almost double, at $3.53 per gallon.
19) Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for the past five years in a row.
21) The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.
• Bush 41: 11.3
• Clinton: 11.2
• Bush 43: 10.8
• Obama: 7.8
23) In 2008, that total amount of student loan debt in this country was $440 billion. At this point, it has shot up to about $1 trillion.
24) According to one recent survey, 76% of all Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck.Witnessing the corrupt Republicans and the criminal Democrats bicker over the US Debt, is like watching two drunks argue over a bar bill tab, on the Titanic.
25) During 0bummer's first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance rose by more than 18%.
26) The total amount of money that the federal government now gives directly to the American people has grown by 32% since Barry 0bummer became president.
27) According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation conducted by the US Census, well over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government.
28) American households are now receiving more money directly from the federal government than they are paying to the government in taxes.
29) Under Barry 0bummer, the velocity of money – a very important indicator of economic health – has plunged to a post-World War II low.
30) At the end of 2008, the Federal Reserve held $475.9 billion worth of US Treasury bonds. Today, Fed holdings of US Treasury bonds have skyrocketed past the 2 trillion dollar mark.Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.
32) During 0bummer's first term, the federal government accumulated more new debt than it did under the first 42 US presidents combined.
33) When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the US government during 0bummer's first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you able to pay your share and not pay your other bills?
34) Finally, here are 252 known LIES that the sociopath, leftist, narcissist, mentally-ill, Marxist, traitor, muslim, racist, bathhouse-faggot-boy, doper, Barry 0bummer has told to America. 0bummer is a lying sack of shit. By the time you read this, it'll be over 300 LIES when the 0bummer administration's Syrian disaster is included.
A Day In The Life
The Friday morning garbage trucks' noise woke me at 6:30am, and my back was feeling pretty good after all the aspirin and ice-paks of last evening. 71°F and sunny. I made the usual French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee (from whole, freshly-ground Starbuck's® Dark French Roast Fresh Ground Beans) with my Chemex® Drip System, and Fresh-Squeezed OJ w/ lots of pulp, checked the weather and news sites, scanned the incoming email load, and checked the day's and weekend's schedule. At 9am, I grabbed a bananna, and drove over to Dad's to visit and meet with the estimator from Heritage Lawn & Landscape Service about the new front sidewalk, while one of his crews was working on stoning the back bank with two 22-ton loads of medium and small Pocono River Stones. Traffic was unusually-heavy as the early Labor Day Weekend traffic was
Becky's realtor emailed an exciting new home listing in exclusive Wyndham Hills, and she made a 10:30am Saturday appointment for Dad and I to go see it with her and the realtor, on a showing. By 11:30, my back was hurting, so I opened a new bottle of Bayer® 325mg Aspirin – no, I don't use Tylenol or anything else but pure aspirin (NSAID) – put on the ice-pak, made an Olive Loaf Sandwich and heated-up a bowl of the fresh Maryland Crab Soup. I changed the 9v back-up batteries in my 2 of 3 hard-wired First Alert Smoke & CO2 Detectors; I need to replace the old basement unit completely. High for the day was 86°F. I listened to the morning's missed Chris Plante Show's Podcast, and will listen to the whole week's groups of missed podcasts, over the 3-day weekend. The usual Mark Levin Show was on from 6-9pm, and I stayed-up to watch Fox News' "Hannity", until 10, armed the Condo and called it quits for the day at 10pm. I planned on sleeping-in until 8am, if possible.
I slept-in until 7:15am on Saturday; close enough. Cloudy, 73°F and t-storms headed our way. Up 2x during the night to take aspirin for my back pain, it was a semi-restful night, but the later
I left for home around 12:30pm, made a quick lunch of a Roast Beef Sandwich and finished-off the remaining first quart of Maryland Crab Soup; still have another quart left. I spent the afternoon doing paperwork, writing-out utility checks, putting a small Sunday morning food shopping list together, and listening to some of the week's Chris Plante Show's Podcast, eating aspirin and using the ice-pak for my back. It's getting dark now at 7:32pm, and light at 6:38am. Fall
I was up at 6:30 on Sunday morning, just barely light outside, 72°F and cloudy/foggy. I made the usual coffee, OJ and skipped breakfast, checked the weather and news sites, scanned email and answered a few, reviewed my food shopping list, and decided to wait until around 9am to leave. T-storms were forecast thru the day, night and into tomorrow. And with Labor Day 'festivities', I knew that Weis Market traffic would be heavier than usual. I set-off the Win-7 Pro Back-Up/Restore Schedule, picked-up my week's mail from the CHCA Community Mailbox, and left at 8:45am. Surprisingly, it wasn't very crowded at Weis, and I got thru my list in 15-20mins, drove over to Dad's to visit for a while. With groceries in the Jeep, I didn't stay long, and went home to unload stuff into the 'fridge and two freezers.
After an Allen Bros 10oz Wagyu Cheese-SteakBurger for an early lunch, I decided to take my 2 Kimber 1911 .45cal ACPs,
The t-storms woke me at 5am, on Monday, but I rolled-over and went back to sleep until 7:30. No back pain whatsoever, today. After making coffee and OJ, I had a Buttery & Flaky Croissant with Orange Marmalade, for breakfast. The weather and news sites didn't show much happening, other
I got-up at 6am on Tuesday, and with my cleaning ladies coming-in at 8:30, had to hurry and get some things done, before I left to look at sidewalk brick/pavers for Dad's project. I made coffee, had some Del Monte® Red Grapefruit Sections, toast and noticed that backhoes, dumptrucks and paving equipment had arrived to rip-out scheduled "X-marked" driveways, re-stone the base and repave them. My cleaning ladies arrived at 8:30, so I drove to Dad's at 9am, and we went to the Glen-Gerry Brick Plant & Showroom, found 3 very nice styles and I made an app't for Alan, my former GC&N foreman and employee) to come by at 9am tomorrow to review and revise his bid for the front sidewalk, to compare with the 4 others I'd gotten. I went home around 11:45 to a sparkling clean Condo, and watched the paving crews tear out and build stones bases for 3 single driveways; my double-driveway is scheduled for tomorrow. Stacey & Dave had brought a monstrous 10z jumbo lump crabmeat crabcake from the MD Shore, and I had it for lunch, with fries. My back was hurting, so I took a handful of aspirin, laid down on the LR couch for a couple hours and listened to WITF Classical Radio. The usual Mark Levin Show was on from 6-9pm, and I stayed-up to watch Fox News' "Hannity", until 10, armed the Condo and called it quits for the day.
Back pain woke me at 4:30am on Wednesday, so I took 2 aspirin, and just stayed-up. I made OJ, coffee and had a Buttery & Flaky Croissant for breakfast, checked the usual news and weather sites, scanned new email, and got ready to leave by 8:30. I'd parked my car on the street for the day, since my driveway was
I slept well until 6:15am, and it was still dark outside, but a brisk 56°F;. I made coffee, had some Del Monte® Mandarin Oranges, and the last Buttery & Flaky Croissant with Blueberry Preserves, for breakfast. After vitamins, BP meds and aspirin, I walked around the CHCA Complex looking at the paving guys working on tearing-out more driveways, raising the city water shut-off valve sleeves to grade level, installing new stone
Tomorrow starts a new week here in the "Journal", and I'm looking forward to getting the last 3 estimates for Dad's new front sidewalk submitted to us, making a final decision, and getting it scheduled and underway. I hope to get to visit Linda and her gardens down in Red Lion, get back over to Sherry's to "flag tape" some of the smaller, crowded shrubs for transplanting, and mark some large hostas for Spring division and transplanting. I also need to get down to the GC&N Complex, do a security check and change any burnt-out lightbulbs, outside. Who knows what else will happen?

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 late-2012 or in early-2013. 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!

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!

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

It's not my intentions 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."
The leftist, hate-filled, anti-America asshole "teacher", Art teacher Shand Stamper, who set-up this idiotic McCracken County High School bullshit dececration of the US Flag, should be clubbed-to-death to death, like a baby harp seal, with a whiffle ball bat.
Subhuman piece-of-feral-savage-shit, 16-year-old Mychal King, who "had a hard day", needs killing for murdering 22 year old Jason Paul, who was found stabbed to death while riding his bike home in Clearwater, Florida. Watch the film clip. KILL THE FERAL ANIMAL!
Subhuman, piece-of-shit, Ariel Castro, the man convicted earlier this year of kidnapping three woman, holding them in his Cleveland home for nearly a decade, and repeatedly sexually assaulting them, committed suicide in his Ohio jail cell Tuesday night. Good riddance and rot in hell.
Raping young boys with broomsticks at summer sports camp, Galileo Mondol, 17, and two 16-year-olds, deserve killing for aggravated rape of a child, assault on a child with intent to commit rape, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, indecent assault and witness intimidation. Hopefully, they'll be thrown into the GP, and raped nightly.
Liberal Media BS
The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.
Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called main stream media (MSM). From outright lies and deceit to blatant distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda, in fawning adoration and support of the Liar-In-Chief, in The White Crib/Hut.
The MSM suck-up to Barry 0sambo so hard, tha they look like bats hanging from the roof of a cave.
Think you can detect it? Well then, have some fun. Take this easy test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Note your score.
