Why am I not surprised?
Could it be because Obama is about payback 24 hours a day, every day?
As much of a doom and gloomer that I am, I find it incredible
that it can be 80 percent.
I think that America is finished, but 80 percent are already gone?
I have only one fear...my social security drying up. It is what I live on now.
We have the legitimate, constitutional power to turn things around without violence. It is time to use the tools our framers gave us, to go on the offense against the rat/rino/media/judicial complex that is rapidly consolidating all power and stomping out our freedoms.
The 80% number is lying with statistics. They define the 80% by simply saying the top 20% are the only ones not in poverty.Pardon my ignorance but does not the word poverty mean starvation? Most of those in poverty in the US are obese. They have too much to eat. Nobody starves in the US except the occasional drug addict if them.
Most of those in “poverty” in the US would be in the top 3% of the worlds wealthiest people to get there all they have to do is have a bank account with a $100.00 balance.
So I think you are right the article is a lie.
I also think you better find something other than Social Security; not because I am mean but because I think your right about that too.
My county at last Census was 96% white, 1% black, and 2% other (the other being illegals it seems).
I’m at Walmart nearly every day for something or another and rare are the times when I don’t see some young overweight baby mama with her fricking EBT card buying up all the soft drinks, chips and Ho-Hos in sight.
I cannot recall having seen one black person use an EBT card there.
Just like crack, cocaine, meth, etc. don’t care what your color is, neither does EBT/SNAP/WICs/TANF/EITC/Section 8.
It’s NOT. What the article says. It states that AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE. 80 % are close to poverty etc etc.
Sure about that?
Those powers of which you speak are moot when the combined branches of government are arrayed against freedom and personal responsibility. Each branch is totally infested with ideologues that will negate all the protections.
It used to be that basic human wrongs (e.g., segregation in Little Rock Arkansas, Alabama with Wallace, et al) were protected and corrected even though if you’d have run a poll then, it likely wouldn’t have come down on the side of right. The Law ruled.
Today, it isn’t like that. Established law does not rule; you can see the effects of that nearly every single day with the arbitrary (and illegal) orders of Obama, Holder, liberal judges, and even in Congress.
Today, Law does not rule - Tyrants do, and there isn’t a peaceful process to be rid of them that I know of.
Claims like this become believable when they start to hit close to home. My nephew just learned that the plant where he has been working for the past 18 years, is being shut down. There are absolutely NO jobs around that area; only more misery as power plants are being forced to close by our EPA.
More poverty in a poverty struck area that once flourished with coal mines and steel mills. How will the Democrats they continue to elect help them now?
If Obama ever discovers life expectancy tables broken down by race, your social security benefits will have a life expectancy of one week.
Yeah, fairly sure. The trick works like this. divide the population into thirds. Call the bottom third the poverty line. No matter how much that bottom third makes they will always be in poverty. This study uses that type of approach. It is based upon envy not actual starvation. It is disingenuous to say “If they didn’t have food stamps, welfare and such they’d starve” because they do have those things.
In the 1980’s women in the US spent more on cosmetics than the combined GNP of all the countries in Africa combined if you left out South Africa. I don’t think that has changed much. Does that sound like poverty? How many “poor” women wear makeup?
There is enough grain in the US turned into beer each year to feed everyone that starves in the world - or so various charities used to say. If the poor in the US are starving then why do they buy beer instead of bread? (Please note I am a beer drinker)
Let the libritards in the US move to Nigeria or India if they want to see poverty.
A last issue. Most of those in “poverty”in the US are there because of choices they themselves made. The Blacks could have made use of the education offered them. They could have chosen to not live a debauched, non-industrious life but most of them didn’t. They are poor because they decided that the things that would make them prosperous, working, learning to read and write and manner were too white. They created the Hell they are in.
That is not the case in a place like India where the poor are poor because they are in a caste that is kept poor by the higher level Hindu caste or in Nigeria by an oppressive corrupt government
Not Congress which has gotten richer from the
banks of al Qaeda and Islam against the American people.
Congress has destroyed America by support tyranny
and lawlessness as they micturated on their Oaths.
And still they are raising taxes here in Maryland and bleeding us dry, while they send money to Casa De Maryland to help the illegals.
They raised the gasoline tax ,but there is no talk of building the new Bridges that we need in Southern Maryland.
All O’Malley worries about is Annapolis and Baltimore.
” your social security benefits will have a life expectancy of one week.”
Well, maybe so, but since I am an expat, I live on a fraction of what those in the USSA have to pay. I will survive without SS, but I may have to give up my lust for wine ;)
> Could it be because Obama is about payback 24 hours a day, every day?
About to? He already has and he dishes it out 24/7 with Jarrett, Holder, Pelosi, Reid, and therest of his cast
Put the blame where it belongs, on the race hustlers who make efforts to divide this country.
^ my bad. Not enough coffee in the veins yet...
