Inflation is here, in food prices, gasoline ,etc. Obama is keeping overall inflation under control by allowing more and more Chinese imports. That is where the unemployment is coming from!
This is what is so deadly to our culture: the norming of lower standards in everything, conduct, character, language, education, achievement, products, and worst of all, government.
Looks to me like 7% of liberal parents can plan on having their children live at hoime for their entire lives.
Just like Europe. We now are going to have to accept low economic growth, high unemployment, high taxes, and a poor financial outlook for the future. It's what Obama wants, so that even more people will be dependent on the Federal government for just about everything. And when the majority of the people are dependent on government, they will keep on voting to sustain that big government for their money. Just like Europe. Don't know if we'll be able to change that by 2016.
If we have to settle for an European-style government and economic system or worse, we are truly slated to reside in the tank with the Tidy Bowl man.
We have to accept nothing. We have the ability, the right, the courage, the strength, and the tools to fix the mess that was created by others.
Won't be able to change by 2016, IMO. And it's going to crash at some point. Economics and math eventually catch up to reality.
Okay, those who earn their money and keeps will endure the Great Depression II. I can't wait until the inflation bubble hits and everything doubles/triples in price and when the dollar becomes worthless and folks who are on fixed income can't pay even to be in their homes or pay for their lights, how they will feel about the blame game.
It is coming. Stock up.
The "New Normal" is what we have been living thru since the communist-in-chief was "selected" in 2008. And it will not end until he is impeached, overthrown or leaves office. We the People are well and truly screwed.
I'm sure the 80+% of blacks out there who re-elected the beast are overjoyed at their messiah pResident. I hate to stereotype... but how many of them voted for this monster so they wouldn't have to work and could just suck off of the government?
This is how Obamacare was able to survive. All the Rats had to do is simply just get it passed... then with each passing day, it becomes harder and harder to rescind. And the lazy American populace (lemmings, moochers, liberals) gets used to it and the fires die to stop the insanity. That's part of why this most recent tax hike that Boehner embraced is so evil. That's why you no longer hear about Ft. Hood, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Benghazi... I could go on and on. Evil rears it's ugly head, there's shock and outrage, and after some time goes by, the peasants settle back down in the mud and go on with their meager lives. And this is why I have such HUGE contempt for the damned media in this country... they refuse to report honestly or even do their jobs and dig out the story and the truth.
I hate to be down... but how can we survive the next four years when the average American settles for crumbs and handouts?
Today on his radio program, Neil Boortz said he already thinks it's too late for America. I fight that notion but a nagging part of that horrible statement rings true behind my will and the brave face.
Only God can change our destiny and our fate. I hope and pray that America turns back to Him and places our trust and future in His big, capable hands. He is our only hope.
I am half black and I must confess after the election demographic breakdown I have 0 sympathy for these minorities and women who suffer! May sound harsh but they voted for this and now they can feel the pain!! The only problem is we Americans have to feel it too. May the welfare check printing machine self-combust and EBT cards melt in the scanners!!
Why no video of Boehner telling conservatives that they know where the door is after he was voted as speaker again? What a dork, he is telling their constituents that their representative should do HIS bidding instead of theirs. This should raise red flags to every conservative in congress and those who elected them.
"Well, this is what America voted for and the deal Congress just passed is going to make it worse by raising taxes on ‘rich’ Americans. "
This is what socialism/Marxism/communism creates. Always has always will. Why oh why are so many people hell bent on ruination?
The time cannot be far off where those working see that their income after taxes is less than those the scroungers and lay-abouts are getting.
Then two things will happen: many will simply give up working, which means more money will be needed to pay their welfare bills - and many will demand a root-and-branch reform of that system.
Reform will take a long time, because the 'entitled' and their supporters will fight tooth and nail.
This is a result of Democratic/Keynesian economic policies, which started when Democrats got both houses of congress in January 2007. At that time, unemployment was at 4.7%, they they started passing bills, the banking crises was a long time coming, way back in 2003, President Bush tried to have congress reign in the terrible lending policies of Freddie and Fannie, however, democrats like Bawney Fwank stated they were doing just fine in Sept of 2003. http://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2008/09/29/video-the-famous-barney-frank-statement-fannie-freddie-are-just-fine/
It is time for a conservative congressman or senator to stand up against this failed policy. They need to start having mock interviews with idiotic talking points blasted at them and taught how to respond like newt did to much fanfare. Put the partisan interviewers in their place then speak to the American people of the failed policy of government overspending which gets them NOTHING, especially those who are still unemployed and are facing the loss of everything they own.
If they are on with liberal Republicans, NAIL THEM FOR BEING BIG GOVERNMENT SUPPORTERS for voting with Democrats.
This is a way we can start winning hearts and minds to the truth that this experiment needs to end because of the failure it is.
Economics is not rocket science.
During the primaries, Newt clearly stated (and Reagan showed in the 80s) how to build a strong US economy, increase jobs, the GDP and reduce welfare and unemployment.
Obama does not want a strong America. He wants Islam/Communism to conquer America.
That's Obama's Hope and that's Obama's Change.
man1: Where's my handout?
Man2: Let me give you a hand UP brother?!
man1: handup? I ain't gonna work for what's owed me, where's my handout??
There are still more of man2 about... but when man1 overtakes man2 numerically, all will fall apart. :-(
I'm not sure man 2 has been outnumbered already.
And that black unemployment rate....can't help but wonder how much of that is by choice.
Choice by them and intelligence by employers. Who would want to risk an Obamabot looking for reasons to sick the EEOC on them, to shut their business down, pay penalties for doing nothing wrong but since the poor victim is black gotta give him a handout cuz you're rich and owe him.
NObama has pretty much told them their entitlement attitude is valid and all they have to do is vote for him and he'll "soak the rich" and give it to them. Of course we both know not all black people are like this, but too many are I hate to say. Why? Because Libtards have conditioned them to it. Playing up the whole "slavery" thing as of to say that somehow they are owed something for wrongs in the past or that blacks were the only slaves ever. Oh, I could go on... but what's the point. It won't make any difference... I am still disappointed that we're stuck with old Rusty (Hey Orangeone! ;-) ) Boehner instead of someone... Pretty much ANYONE else! The fixing has to start with fixing what's wrong with the Rs. No progress can be made until we right that ship.
Stuart we knew that was going to happen in 2008 especially when the govt. hands out entitlements the way it does.
I really wish pundits would stop saying "raised taxes on the rich." The phrase/term is nothing but pure propaganda speak pushed by the Leftists. What happened was Congress raised tax rates on the upper middle class income producers, small business income, and are hiding the fact that all middle class taxes just went up by pushing the "rich" propaganda.
Bingo! The real rich are sitting in the White House and Congress, and have the last names of Soros, Immelt, and DiCaprio.
Our taxes when up when ObamaCare was passed but voters failed to listen and re-elected the slime. I cannot wait to hear them whine.
Oh yes, that wasn't really mentioned by any in the propagandist media arm of Zero. Surprise Obamarrhoids! You got what you voted for!
The problem is you have almost 50% of the population now who are not paying any federal income tax (net). They don't care because they're reaping the benefits and not paying for them.
Totally agree. That is how 'rich' has continually been redefined downward. Stuart is playing into the hands of the left by letting them control the narrative.
The NEW NORMAL: My grandmother was one to say you can get used to hanging if you do it long enough. But wasn't this the point of Obama's policies; to hang the American people out to dry so they have to depend on govt? Looks like he's succeeding and the sheeple just keep feeding out of his hand.
This is a ledge on the cliff Congress just pushed us further down. Unfortunately, we are not even close to the bottom yet.
