Anybody who thinks the economy is recovering is a sheltered being. We’ve known they’re blatantly lying for years now.

My wife and I were talking about this tonight. She works, I work -- we know "poor people" who live better than we do. Single mothers in subsidized housing -- they take vacations and buy ipads for their kids. I'm sure that some unemployed people are having a tough time -- but there are clearly some non-productive people who are living better than the middle class.

My wife wasn't serious, but she asked, "Should we quit our jobs and just stay home? Maybe we'd have more money ..."

You can't build a successful society with a culture like that, but you sure can destroy a society that way.

How can the media lie? Most of their budget comes from Carnegie, Ford, Rockefeller, and Soro’s! So watch how the main propaganda pieces have no money problems.

It will be because of good management, even though all of the small business people have stopped their advertising dollars, to them.

I did!

Everything put out by Obumbo and his media lackeys is a lie,
and built on the same principle.
This is why he is still popular, or reported as so.
If Americans do not wake-up fast, they are finished.
Since I am an expat, I will be fine until my social security crashes, which is now my only fear.

They just keep gobbling up the mainstream media propaganda and they just continue to go out and wildly spend money.

Maybe the Taker classes are still spending - but middle class spending is way off. That's why all those small businesses are going under.

Please don’t confuse Zero with the facts ..
He is a community organizer and ill prepared for the ‘geezer and grey panther’ rebellion.
He is used to working with the ‘sheeple’and the Obamabots.

Go figure a leader who can’t lead !
An Executive who has never lead even a march !
A ‘Zero’ who can’t even count, or, add up the numbers..
but according to Moochellle, he’s been working every day on unemployment
but hasn’t figured out that all the new jobs are part-timers
who used to be full-time.
Watch for more rats abandoning the sinking ship .

A significant aspect of American decline and decadence is how major organs in the press have devolved. Historians will one day document on how they no longer practice traditional journalism but have become propaganda outlets of the Left. Their commentators are Obama sycophants.

Articles with ominous foreboding predictions seem popular these days on FR. 0bama won, so hunker down. But, articles of this type selectively quoting statistics and then predicting doom — I call bul1$4i7. If the economy were lurching so close to disaster, the stock market averages would have already reacted in a strong negative direction. For those who did not take economics class in college, I will tell you early on you learn about leading and lagging indicators — labor figures are by the nature of how they are collected are lagging. Not a peep or a mention of the expansion of oil and gas industry in the U.S. and the falling price of domestic energy used by heavy industry. Domestic energy for industry is at multi-decade lows as is the cost of financing the oil and gas industry build out. The economy of 2025 will be unrecognizable from what we see today. The overspending by various levels of government is only overspending for a $14+T economy, but sustainable for a $20+T economy. Look at the empirical evidence in your own lives before going woe is we every time you read articles like the one above.

I think it was in 2010.

The Tea Party organized a protest against CNN in Atlanta.
It drizzled rain that day, but there was a good turnout.

I carried a sign that said “You Won’t See This On CNN”.

And, of course, you didn’t see it on CNN.

But, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t continue to protest the media and attempt to shame them.

Our “conservative” radio station is imbedded with the local news reports that ALWAYS sound like “Fairy Tales”...they report on a different universe that’s happy and growing and just swell.

Propaganda at it’s best.

I can’t WAIT for the “talking heads” of local news to experience the coming collapse...I don’t think they know how to wipe their asses, to be honest.

They have their basic needs provided and aren’t smart enough with wherewithal to think ahead.

I witnessed a junior 27 year old engineer, several years out of college, who recently bought a house, and a car, who goes skiing once a month, seriously ask his peers, who were 20 years his senior, if monogamy didn’t challenge a life in marriage.

I don’t care what demographic one rises from, such an incredibly amoral perspective speaks volumes regarding the arrogant ignorance of a large percentage of Americans today.

I have a friend who is living in a garage.

My brother can not afford to fix his car a $250 because his hour have been cut way back.

My other brother has had his work hours reduced as well.

I have a cousin who can’t find work and I hired him so he can pay his rent this month.

And you say look around as see that this article is not telling the truth, looks real here.

"falling price of domestic energy used by heavy industry"

When heavy industry has so dramatically decreased, why be surprised if the volume of domestic energy used by that industry has also dramatically decreased?

Most liberals will support obama whether they have a job or not. So, as long as the media lies to “moderates” they’ll keep supporting him and he’ll keep having high approval ratings.

Single mothers in subsidized housing -- they take vacations and buy ipads for their kids. I'm sure that some unemployed people are having a tough time -- but there are clearly some non-productive people who are living better than the middle class.

This is exactly why there is virually no outrage, and no pitchforks. A big % of the population has put their faith in government for their sustenance. They have willingly sold their souls for those vacations and iPads, and all they want and expect is more.

You and the rest of us who reject the collectivist lies will be blamed for the inevitable death of the too-big-to-fail ever-bearing money tree, not the pols, media, and education establishment that have have crafted the deception. That FedGov is not the Tree of Life is not a popular message.

Gray areas are fast fading and life is requiring a conscious choice between God or mammon, truth or lies, real wages or EBT freebies. This ought to help people discern that the famed (feared) "mark of the beast" is not so mysterious a concept, but a choice to accept and live on a foundation of lies and theft, with the "Party" looking after its own and punishing all others.

Those who reject not only the enticements of government largess but the debasement of societal norms and corruption of the language risk their livelihoods, reputations, personal relationships, and freedom. But they'll preserve their souls.

These days I am practicing a lot more situational awareness in quietly observing others' behavior, and taking mental notes of their beliefs. Family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, acquaintences.. even relative strangers such as cashiers or others in service-related positions. Many may appear decent and "well-meaning" but are not to be trusted. And some others will be marked as trustworthy. Handy info for when SHTF.

This must not be far from the survival mentality and techniques of European Jews and those who harbored them.

I read somewhere that there are less total people in the workplace today than in 1982. Can that be accurate?

I realize that baby boomers are retiring by the millions, but by sheer population growth, shouldn't the number be MUCH higher?

If true this country is F'd, severely.

When social security was implemented it was 42 workers paying in to support each recipient. Now it's roughly 2 per recipient, soon to be 1:1

I don't know how you all are doing, but I'm not crazy about supporting somebody else's retirement.

Oh, I don't mind helping my dad (to a degree) but I don't want to completely support some complete stranger's grandpa.

I don’t know if all unemployed people live desirable lives, but I have repeatedly observed a phenomena last year or two.

My wife works full time, I am retired. So I do most of the grocery shopping. She makes the list, I buy the items. We look for sale items. My cart is rarely over 1/4 full at checkout. Then I see a cart ahead of me with cart fully loaded with groceries. Then they whip out an EBT card to pay! Many times the stuff they bought exceeds the EBT card balance. Then they pay the rest of bill in cash. Invariably these people look overweight.

I have no problem feeding the poor who can’t afford to buy enough food. But obviously food stamps are being handed out with abandon.

SS was a lie from the start, marketed as a retirement safety net to put decent, law-abiding citizens on government life support in their senior years. Sucked dry from 1001 other forms of taxation, the people would then need and expect a return on their fake but forced “investment”.

The government removes a chunk of income that the individual could save, invest, or spend as his own life warrants, ostensibly so the person won't be left hanging/destitute in his latter years.

The reality is something else entirely, but I really can't fault people for demanding their stolen money back. Yeah, I know you and I are the ones actually paying for it, as it is the government who projected its own gross incompetence, wastefulness and lack of self-control upon the individual citizen, in order to mandate a “safety net” to protect us imbecilic beings from ourselves.

Because I view SS as an entrapment scheme, I just can't get outraged about those who collect it, even though the system is indefensible and unsustainable. The folks who are angling for any means of shirking the responsibilities of life - expecting others to fund their irresponsible life choices as far into the future as they make them (such as having multiple-daddied offspring) - well they are no good. Those are the real takers, but the seniors get tossed in with them due to the convenient, purposeful muddling of the revenues and debts.

Another reason I can't get worked up about seniors on SS is that by forcing the current workers to pay (or rather, go into massive debt) for the current checks, the government is gleefully driving a wedge between and fomenting hatred of the young toward the old. Probably to make Obamacare denial of geriatric care an easier sell. I get the sense that the government wants me to hate old people by training me to view them as leeches. There can be some pretty cantankerous and demanding ones out there, but still...

I know my views can be easy picked apart on an economic level (I've done it myself), but I can't ignore a number of other components that are necessary for the survival of a merciful and just people.

I completely relate to this, I work part time, my husband works full time. We are very middle class. I get tired of working hard, while I watch those that don’t work get a free ride. I work with a client who is on medicaid, and I find out his 40 something daughter, son-in-law and now grandchild our all on disability, this is making me sick. They all have smart phones, but live off the state, how can this be?? For years I have chosen a pay as you go phone to save a little money, why? My money will be worth nothing at this rate.

We needed to buy a new sump pump recently. I called around a few of the local lumberyards and hardware stores and found that Carter Lumber had the best price. Last Monday me and Dad hopped into his van and drove to Carters. When we walked up to the door there was a small sign saying they had closed over the weekend. Thanks for the last 15 years of allowing us to service your needs. You can visit our other locations at, and they listed several towns and cities around us.

Since Obama has been re-elected we have lost 4 businesses in my town in all. Carter Lumber as mentioned above, a bargain outlet store something akin to Big Lots called Grandview, Carquest Autoparts and a 2nd hand store I loved to peruse called Re-Use Industries have all closed now.

Add to that I just talked to a plumber who was doing some work at our building and he informed me there business is barely operating and they went from 15 employees last Summer down to three as of November 2012 and he has been told if business don't pick up that he will be laid off at the end of February.

Just talked to a real good friend last night who is a Certified Electrician and System Control Tech (he works on controls and switching for large manufacturing and industrial equipment as well as all levels of electrical work) and he told me he has been given notice that his company is shutting down at the end of February and will hopefully be calling people back in May or June. He said they have never totally shut down before BUT many of their clients are coal mines in and around the Ohio Valley and most of these have cut mining operations down to the nub.

Yet I've heard things are getting better and the economy is fine. Well that may be true outside of Southern Ohio but here its getting worse fast. Crime is climbing at alarming rate. Lots of B&E's and Pillbillies stealing stuff for fast cash. Just had our AC unit vandalized last week. They cut the lines to it thinking they could lift it out of the cage we have around it outside. They were trying to get it while stealing 4 other units in the buildings on either side of us.

One of the places they stole AC units from was a coin shop located right next door. This is the third time he has been robbed of his AC units. The owner is still recovering from the beating he took when some asswipes robbed his store at the end of last year. The guy is 80 years old and they beat him in the head with a crow bar and fractured his skull. They finally caught one of the alleged punks with some of the goods in his government subsidized apartment. He gets his healthcard and food stamps and yes he even had his FREE Obama phone as well, the cops informed me of this when they were down to do the Police Report on our AC unit.

Makes me feel all tingly inside knowing my tax dollars helped to keep an Obamazombie in a nice apartment and kept him fed and in good health so he could devote all his time to beating up 80 plus year old store owners. My Dad is that age and spends his days running our flooring store. He now keeps his shotgun loaded and within arms reach while he is it the store.

But as we say around here now: "That's just business as usual here in the Obamanation!"

The printing industry in my area has been hit hard. I was a broker among other services offered, photography, design, mailing, digital, web. Had to shut down in 2008, went to work for a customer.

A printer I’d known and worked with 20 years shut down suddenly late last year, they were hanging on, waiting for better times since 2008. Just couldn’t rationalize keeping the doors open anymore.

Another in southern Virginia I’ve worked with for over a decade, the longtime owner lost his (very nice) house to personal bankruptcy, he’s putting his all into keeping the company going.

Another, who specializes in digital printing, owns his office building outright and is living there to keep himself afloat. Down to one employee, himself. Barely making it.

I don’t see this turning around any time soon. We’re in far worse shape now than we were when this first hit in late 2007 to early 2008.

I worried that I had panicked and overreacted when I shut down and took a job, but in hindsight it’s looking like he who panics first panics best.

You’re right; that is why I don’t advocate sending Americans ANYWHERE overseas to combat “evil”. The evil is here, and Obama is doing much more damage than a “nuclear Iran” will ever do. Our way of life has been destroyed over the past four years (not “being destroyed”; it has been destroyed), and I see no way we ever return to an era where people take the slightest responsibility for their actions.

If women and sexual deviants want to fight the Muslims, go for it; I don’t see Muslims as the same threat as the government that is sending the freak show there is. Considering how dangerous Muslims are, that is saying a lot.

I’ve seen the same thing; they’ll have welfare-bonus children pushing additional carts like draft animals. One of the last things keeping white Americans voting Democrat is the fact that they don’t want blacks to stop aborting their children.

“Crime is climbing at alarming rate. Lots of B&E’s and Pillbillies stealing stuff for fast cash.”

It certainly is climbing along the frontier of the Newark Welfare Reservation here in northern NJ; the raiding parties are getting more brazen as their cities deteriorate even faster (less working people have money to spend subsidizing the zoo). I believe that, more than a larger political vision, is why so many people are buying guns. Here in NJ we’ve laid off thousands of cops (especially in cities, where they were never using their own revenues to pay them); because of the union work rules, the last hired were the first let go, so we now have smaller, older, more expensive cops....

If you’re anywhere near a major through route to and from any sort of urban concentration, a locked cage around the A/C unit or heat pump is a good investment. I know several small landlords who have been hit multiple times, one house hit three times by itself. Always when unoccupied, yep, on a through route. Raiding parties as you said.
