Canada is getting rich; its GDP is about $1.4 trillion per year. This means that if Obamas government took everything produced in Canada each year (a 100 percent tax on everything); he would still be running a $400 billion debt per year (more than a billion per day).
The average UNI professor would have to work for 61,000 years to pay for what Obamas government adds to the national debt in one day!
One in seven Americans are now on food stamps. In 2008, the average median household income was $54,700/year. It has now dropped to $50,700. At the same time, prices are going up. Education, utility rates, food, gasoline, and almost everything else have risen in price.
You may wonder how Obama apologists can get away with the you-are-better-off claptrap. If the White House said that Elvis was alive and living in the Pentagon, and that Obama will be taken directly into heaven after he wins the election, the American press and the academicians would immediately begin a dialogue on the impact of Elvis on the election, and why Joe Biden would make a fantastic president after Obama has been raptured.
Then there are the chattering classes, a recent report found the following ratios in academics: Democrats to Republicans; 30 to 1 anthropology, 28 to 1 sociology, 10 to 1 history, 7 to 1 political science. Liberalism is now the state religion of the elite and there is no separation between church and state.
In fact, the great irony of modern American life is the aged social scientist, who still sees herself as an advocate for the masses, and the liberal students, who against all evidence, still fancy themselves as rebels against the establishment, when in fact they function as shills and cannon fodder for the national elite.

Set the bar higher.
Are we better off as a nation than we were 50 years ago?
When I click on your link I get this message:
Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!
Do you have another link?
Has anyone archived it?
No. Never before in my life have I lived paycheck to paycheck.
This link should work.
Thank God for WalMart.
[Thank God for WalMart.]
I think there are many more people than everyone might think who have turned to Walmart for food.
BTW, I have tried some of their brands and found them just as good or better than the more expensive options available.
I get by on SS and dwindling savings but refuse to put myself on Gov’t ‘Foodfare’.
I talked to a neighbor the other day, a teacher, who said she refuses to shop at WalMart because they don’t give good enough benefits for their employees. I wanted to throw up. An educated person teaching our kids that WalMart is not socially-minded enough. It nevers occurs to libs that Capitalism and markets once destroyed will result in loss of freedom and choices.
Speaks volumes, doesn’t it.
“Nothing they can afford to refuse” This is the seduction that is especially diabolical about Obama and the Democrats.
In a word: HELL NO!!!
Thank God for Fox. Hannity is digging into this Chinese shenanigans.
