20 percent of American families everyone unemployed, Record food stamp usage, Record labor force participation rate, Zero Hedge interprets BLS orwellian wording, 49 million dealing with food insecurity

“11.4%: What the U.S. unemployment rate would be if labor force participation were back to January 2008 levels.” …James Pethokoukis, American Enterprise Institute, June 2013

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″


Citizen Wells has extensively covered the true employment and labor force situation in this country.

Zero Hedge has interptreted the latest BLS report on family employment.

Hats off to them.

“The Real Unemployment Rate: In 20% Of American Families, Everyone Is Unemployed”

“According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working. So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh. One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job. That is absolutely astonishing. How can a family survive if nobody is making any money? Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy. There is a reason why government dependence has reached epidemic levels in the United States. Without enough jobs, tens of millions of additional Americans have been forced to reach out to the government for help. At this point, if you can believe it, the number of Americans getting money or benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million.

When I was growing up, it seemed like anyone that was willing to work hard could find a good paying job. But now that has all changed. At this point, 20 percent of all the families in the entire country do not have a single member that has a job. That includes fathers, mothers and children. The following is how CNSNews.com broke down the numbers…

A family, as defined by the BLS, is a group of two or more people who live together and who are related by birth, adoption or marriage. In 2013, there were 80,445,000 families in the United States and in 16,127,000—or 20 percent–no one had a job.
To be honest, these really are Great Depression-type numbers. But over the years “unemployment” has been redefined so many times that it doesn’t mean the same thing that it once did. The government tells us that the official unemployment rate is about 7 percent, but that number is almost meaningless at this point.

A number that I find much more useful is the employment-population ratio. According to the employment-population ratio, the percentage of working age Americans that actually have a job has been below 59 percent for more than four years in a row…”

“And what is even more frightening is that more families are falling out of the middle class every single day.  As a recent CNN article explained, approximately one-third of all U.S. households are living “hand-to-mouth”.  In other words, they are constantly living on the edge of financial disaster…

About one-third of American households live “hand-to-mouth,” meaning that they spend all their paychecks. But what surprised the study authors is that 66% of these families are middle class, with a median income of $41,000. While they don’t have liquid assets, such as savings accounts or mutual fund holdings, they do have homes and retirement accounts, with a median net worth of $41,000.

“We don’t expect them to be living paycheck to paycheck,” said Greg Kaplan, study co-author and assistant professor of economics at Princeton University.

The American Dream is rapidly becoming an American nightmare.”

From the BLS report.

“The share of families with an employed member was unchanged at 80.0 percent in 2013. The likelihood of having an employed family member rose in 2013 for Asian families (to 88.8 percent) and for Hispanic families (to 85.1 percent). The likelihood for white and black families showed little or no change (80.1 percent and 75.7 percent, respectively).”

    Good morning William, et al.

  2. “Don’t feed the animals, they will become dependent upon you for food”…..these are directions from our federal government.

    I love that sign which is in all our National Parks now days……perhaps they should post it in downtown Charlotte too….or New York, or Boston, how about D.C., maybe L.A., etc.

  3. RMINNC……..
    Even feeding a wild animal ONCE takes away a certain amount of it’s drive to forage for food. I believe that the DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS SIGNS are OK. I have read that feeding wild animals particularly bears is the primary reason why the animal keeps returning. It goes where food is the easiest to get at.

  4. Oldsailor81…..good morning friend

    I was referring to the last post that Bob Strauss made in reference to the total dependence of humans on the federal government….I think that sign is getting more and more to the basic truth of where our government is heading with all their free handouts……

    If they can get everyone depending on federal assistance for all their daily needs…then according to Orwellian thought…why should anyone work?

    If this ever happens, they will have surely made slaves of everyone without the shackles and chains…..what a horrible thought !

    I can only hope I am not around for that day.

  5. Oldsialor81…..

    Got your latest email…interesting stuff….I agree with what you say….lets keep this exchange going…..there are few people still around who seem to think as I do….you are one.

  6. RMINNC……..
    It seems as though the Chicago slime keep looking for new ways to put more and more in their own pockets,and the pockets of their backside buddies, while more, and more Americans are forced to ask for food stamps. The OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS in DC,can’t seem to figure out that their RESTRICTIVE, and punitive policies,adds to the operating cost for business,making them LESS competitive in the marketplace. When they are less competitive they become less productive,and the less productive they are,the less their products sell. This translates to huge losses,which eventually requires cutbacks in production,which then translates to LOST JOBS. You don’t need a phd to see where it all ends. Of course who in the government even gives a damn,they are all to busy having their DEVIATE sexual pleasures.

    “Most common reason for remaining uninsured is not being able to afford coverage
    When asked to say in their own words why they don’t currently have health insurance, the most common reason mentioned by the uninsured is that it is too expensive (39 percent), followed by employment-related reasons such as being unemployed or working for an employer that doesn’t offer coverage (22 percent). Roughly one in ten say they just haven’t gotten around to getting coverage or missed the deadline to apply (11 percent), and a similar share feel they don’t want or need coverage (9 percent).”

    “Too expensive/can’t afford it
    “What’s out there now is just unaffordable.”
    “Because I think food on the table is more important.”
    “Being a single mom every penny I have goes into my household and I have nothing extra.”
    Job-related reasons
    “Because I was laid off from my job in December.”
    “I only work 2 and half hours a day for 5 days a week and I can’t afford it.”
    “Insurance that employer offers not worth the cost.”
    Missed the deadline/haven’t gotten around to it/too busy
    “I didn’t sign up in time.”
    “I haven’t had time to check all that out.”
    Don’t want/need it
    “Because I don’t want it. I feel it’s my own option whether I want to buy it.”
    “Because of my age, I don’t need it at the moment.”

    When reminded of the law’s requirement for individuals to get coverage or pay a fine and asked to choose the main reason they haven’t gotten coverage this year, cost again turns up as the biggest barrier for the uninsured; over a third (36 percent) say they tried to get coverage but it was too expensive. Fourteen percent of the uninsured say they don’t think the law’s requirement to have insurance applies to them personally, and another 13 percent say they didn’t know about the requirement. Twelve percent say they tried to get coverage but were unable. Just 7 percent say they would rather pay the fine than pay for health insurance.

    Cost Is Primary Reason For Remaining Uninsured
    Figure 7
    Almost half the uninsured (45 percent) think they will have to pay a fine for not having health insurance this year, though a sizeable share of the uninsured (15 percent) say they don’t know what the amount will be.”


  8. of course though Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.PIGGY (CLINT) thinks she can be POTUS. She would be a FEMALE VERSION of Soetoro.(COMPLETE MORON). But “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE,” if ANYBODY can run for potus. Even the King of Siam. Our country is slowley deteriorating,along with our so called society…….and it is a direct result of the PI$$ POOR leadership, compounded by an ever increasing level of social,religous,and moral deterioration, at every level. I guess we need to prepare ourselves for the eventual downfall of America. Far to few people even give a damn any longer.They are hooked on their drugs,their porn,their alcohol etc. It is all going to get much worse,before it ever begins to turn around. Apparently the people of America will have to TASTE test the Social Utopia they think is just around the corner. When they discover the BITTER TASTE, they will CRY,and WHINE that somebody should FIX IT ALL. I personally would tell such people GO STRAIGHT TO HELL,and don’t pass go either, rather LIVE IN THE PHONY LIFESTYLE YOU CREATED FOR YOURSELF,IT WILL BE GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU!


    Now tell us again…

    what was the name of that new government insurance program…..was it, the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT aka OBAMACARE ?

  10. Not a day passes that we don’t see somebody on a talk show whining about something. But after all is said and done we will discover that that person voted for “FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE”. How quickly they forget!

    In yesterdays mail I received a letter from VA saying that I owe them a 2013 earnings statement. I sent them a copy of my income tax return. Let them figure it out. Besides I am done with VA,and have been for over two years now. Boy the VA bunch is Arizona are going to catch hell. They have been treating vets like manure. I quickly discovered that I have a much better deal with Blue Cross Blue Shield. I don’t even go to the VA for my meds either.

    Pope Francis’ New Secretary: Islam Is A “Culture of Death”…

    “Pope Francis appointed Father Yoannis Lahzi Gaido to serve as his personal secretary earlier this month.”


    Pope Francis has a new secretary who speaks Arabic and has very clear words about Islam. It is no coincidence.

    The new secretary, Father Yoannis Lahzi Gaido, is a Copt from Egypt, where Christians are a beleaguered minority who have had experience with Islam for 1,350 years. His realistic view of Islam lacks any Western gloss.

    The new secretary of Pope Francis is Coptic Catholic Christian and comes from the diplomatic service of the Vatican. In his CV, his critical remarks about Islam stand out…

    Father Yoannis Lahzi Gaido was born in 1975. He visited the Diplomatic Academy of the Holy See and entered the diplomatic service in 2007. His first destination was the Apostolic Nuncio to Congo in Brazzaville…

    [He came to the Pope’s attention] for his ability to speak Arabic…The Egyptian has become the interpreter of the Pope when he receives news from the Arab world.

    Among the friends of the new secretary is another well-known Egyptian, the famous Muslim Magdi Cristiano Allam, a journalist and writer who converted to Christianity, and was baptized by Benedict XVI at the Easter Vigil in 2008 in St. Peter’s Basilica.

    There were violent riots in various parts of the Islamic world, including fatalities, as a consequence of this.

    Allam has been a member of the European Parliament since 2009. After the election of Pope Francis, he took an increasingly critical position towards the Catholic Church, which he accuses of disregarding the warnings of Benedict XVI and adopting the “dictatorship of relativism” and appearing soft on Islam. He says Islam is a “real threat to Christianity and the freedom of man.”

    In his book “Grazie Gesù” (Thank you Jesus) that Allam published in the year of his baptism, he wrote about Father Yoannis Gaido:

    Father Yoannis Lahzi Gaido, an Egyptian, deserves a special mention. [He was] for years chaplain to the church of Santa Domitilla in Latina and is currently Secretary of the Apostolic Nunciature in Brazzaville.

    I met him in Rome, and he has given me years of friendship and expressed his solidarity [with me].

    He has a profound knowledge of the real Islam, as it is actually present in the hearts and minds of the majority of Muslims, and not distorted by the ignorance, naivety, good nature and ideological blindness of the West, which is exploited by mystifiers and hypocrites.

    Father Yoannis shares my position on Islam completely and I was close to him as a brother Christian, as the organized media storm after my conversion, that tried to discredit and defame me, reached its climax.

    Allam cited an interview that Father Gaido gave on 31 March 2008:

    “I have always tried to be a friend that respects the different religion of the other, without being afraid to tell the truth or to emphasize that Christianity is a call to freedom.

    And when Magdi asked me about the Copts in Egypt, I did not hide the enormous difficulties under which Christians must live in places with a Muslim majority.

    These difficulties are not caused by a few Islamists, but by a culture of death and violence that is based on very clear verses [of their scripture] that they quote, calling for violence and jihad, saying they should murder all who are different and killing [those who express] freedom of conscience. Just to think differently is enough to be sentenced to death.”

    In 2010, after the anti-Christian massacre on New Year’s Day in Alexandria, Egypt, Father Gaido disagreed with the public declaration of the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University. He [the Imam] strongly condemned the words of Pope Benedict XVI on January 2 as “interference” in internal Egyptian affairs.

    Al-Azhar broke with the Vatican because of the entirely justified criticism of Benedict XVI, so different from the previous boring conversations of the past.

    Father Gaido spoke not as a diplomat on the Vatican position, but as a Coptic Christian on the website of the Coptic Catholic Patriarchate of Alexandria. The statement caused a great stir and was reported internationally by the media, especially in the Islamic world.

    Note: edited Google translate from German. I have left out parts about the details of papal secretaries in general and details of Father Yoannis Gaido’s various earlier appointments.

  14. Oldsailor….

    The situation you have described concerning the veterans reminds me of the poem by Kipling which went something like this;

    O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
    But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
    But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!

    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
    But it’s “Special train for Mr. Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
    The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
    O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

    Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
    An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
    Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.

    Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
    But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
    O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
    Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;

    While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
    But it’s “Please to walk in front, Sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
    There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
    O it’s “Please to walk in front, Sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
    We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
    The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.

    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
    But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
    An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;

    An’ Tommy ain’t no bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!
    It’s an age old story Salt…..when the county stands at risk, the military man is the “Pride of the Nation” and politicians cannot do enough for them….but

    When the shooting stops and the guns are silent again…

    The soldier reverts to his second class citizen status and must sit in the back of the bus and beg for his daily rations..

  15. Oldsailor

    This should be some Discomforting news to all…….I just read in the ARMY TIMES where the Department of Defense will soon be cutting the combat strength of America by 28 Combat Brigades… .
    that’s a hell of a lot of rifles…….

    Well if this happens and it will with Obama’s mouthpiece, Chuck Hagle in there, it will again be,\;

    “Tommy this and Tommy that, and thank you Mr. Atkins for going off to war”,

    Same old story with different players…but maybe a different outcome !

  16. VIDEO It All Becomes Crystal Clear Saul Alinsky …and the moral relativity of the left
    Posted on April 8, 2014

    There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

    1) Healthcare –Control healthcare, and you control the people

    2) Poverty –Increase the poverty level as high as possible. Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt –Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control –Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion –Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools.

    8) Class Warfare –Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    Any of this sound familiar?


  17. Obama-Biden vacation tab reaches $40 million — $2.9 million alone for two Obama 2014 golf outings

    The travel costs for vacations taken by the first family and the Bidens have reached over $40 million with the Air Force’s revelation that two golf outings by President Obama this year cost $2.9 million, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch.

    The group said that the Air Force provided documents and records that put the price of the first family’s trip to Key Largo, Fla., in March at $885,683 just for flying Air Force One. The travel costs to golf in Palm Springs, Calif., in February, where the president also met with King Abdullah II of Jordan, was $2,066,594, said the Air Force documents, according to Judicial Watch.


    Doesn’t this type of excess have to be budgeted for the WH so not to exceed a certain amount of the taxpayers’ money? There is no end to the robbery going on…esp. at a time when the jobless increase and the middle class is broke BECAUSE of this regime’s own anti-American policies?

  18. Jesse Jackson Shows Up on Court Before Clippers-Warriors Game

    As the fallout continued regarding the NBA’s decision to ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life based on racist comments made in private and leaked on tape, Jesse Jackson showed up on court before Game 5 of the first round of the playoffs between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.

    Earlier in the day, race-baiter extraordinaire Jackson appeared at the Milken Institute’s Global Conference in Beverly Hills, where he stated that Sterling’s comments showed “why we need affirmative action. People in high places have no will toward goodness unless the law is there to force it.” Jackson continued by stating that Sterling “should apologize, he should resign and he should sell the team. We have a high tolerance for racism. His past is very well known. It took this over-the-hill statement…to get to this point.”

    In 2008, Jackson was caught on tape stating that he would like to “cut off [President Obama’s] nuts” for “talking down to black people…telling n****** how to behave.” In the 1980s, Jackson referred to New York City as “Hymietown.” He called Ward Connerly of the California Board of Regents a “house slave” and “puppet of the white man,” and according to James Mtume, stated in 2008 that Barack Obama was a “half-breed n*****.”


  19. Interesting how two men who each had near death experiences saw similar futures for America….and these experiences took place back in the 1940s! And both saw military invasion from southern borders!!

    As we have reported, there was Dr. George Ritchie — a prominent psychiatrist in the Richmond, Virginia, area who had a near-death experience.

    During that episode, claimed Dr. Ritchie, “Jesus opened a corridor through time which showed me increasing natural disasters coming upon the earth. There were more and more hurricanes and floods occurring over different areas of our planet. The earthquakes and volcanoes were increasing. We were becoming more and more selfish and self-righteous. Families were splitting, governments were breaking apart because people were thinking only of themselves. I saw armies marching on the United States from the south and explosions occurring over the entire world that were of a magnitude beyond my capacity to imagine. I realized if they continued, human life as we have known it could not continue to exist.”

    The psychiatrist said he was shown a second corridor or alternative future. “At the beginning they appeared very similar but the further the second one unfolded, the more different it became,” he wrote. “The planet grew more peaceful. Man and nature both were better. Man was not as critical of himself or others. He was not as destructive of nature and he was beginning to understand what love is.”

    Destroy nature, Ritchie claims he was shown, and hurt each other, and the first “corridor” will be the one mankind traverses. He felt humans would be given about half a century to go one way or the other (the vision occurred in the 1940s, and since the 1980s, for sure, there have been a good number of natural events).

    Curiously, another near-deather named James Wilburn Chauncey, a retired businessman from Fayetteville, Georgia, says he was also shown future natural and military eruptions during a brush with death as a young boy, his case too in the 1940s (while suffering from spinal meningitis).

    Chauncey envisioned an invasion not from sea or air but across America’s southern border. He also saw great earthquakes and mountains and lakes disappearing or emerging in the heartland, along with a global epidemic.

    Are there precursors? Recent tornadoes? Rumblings in Ukraine? Whatever the military stuff, we’re in a spiritual confrontation. John Paul II, as cardinal, during a visit to New York, once called it an “apocalyptic” battle between light and dark. That you can bank.

    Meanwhile: wildfires. Droughts. Harsh winter weather. How about a slow-motion landslide dismantling a Walgreens in Wyoming. (“Slowly but surely”? Is that how many things will occur?)

    “Whatever one’s interpretation of the evidence, there is a surprising consensus on what is to come [among those who have an encounter with death]: widespread earthquakes and volcanic activity, a pole shift, erratic weather patterns, drought, and food shortages, economic collapse, social disintegration, diseases of unknown origin, and possibly nuclear or natural holocaust or catastrophe,” said a book of such experiences called Life Beyond Death. “Such calamities are seen as the inevitable result and reflection of a universally flagrant and ignorant violation of natural and spiritual laws, a necessary shake-up and purification which will bring a new sense of unity and cooperation. The severity of the disasters is said to depend on the extent to which human beings work to acquire the qualities that the near-death itself brings: unconditional love and spiritual values.”

  21. Observer………
    I firmly believe that God created mankind in his image,and in addition he created everything else in the same vein. When manbegins to destroy ANY vein of God’s plan he will incurr the WRATH OF GOD upon himself. Homosexual behavior has already become one avenue upon which the Lords vehicles of reprisal are already travelling,and these vehicles will travel this road filled with the lord’s soldiers who will strike down ALL who practice the filthy conventions that are contrary to the natural designs of God. Each year thousands of homosexuals die horrible,and extremely painful deaths,…..Gods retribution for their TWISTED behavior,and turning their backs to God. Millions more will PAY THE FIDDLER as well. Perhaps one day these sick people will be able to comprehend what the writing on the wall is telling them.

  22. Female homosexuals are also contracting their FINAL diseases. Hundreds across the US are finding themselves in extremely pain, which DEFIES logical medical analysis. These maladies correlate and are mostly common in female HOMOSEXUALS…….which is also CONTRARY to God’s NATURAL DESIGN. They, like their male counterparts willl die horrible and painful deaths at the hands of Gods soldiers.
    Whenever we look into the faces of such people you will see the evidential smirk,and the STARING, expressionless,face which is common to all practitioners of homosexuality both male, and female. The blank stare is resultant of their impaired ,or non existent character. They ALWAYS reflect little ,or no facial expression in situations where normal people reflect such expressions in volume. You only need to look into the eyes of ANYONE to detect a clue to his/her reality. To such affected people what is humorous to most of us is NOT HUMOROUS to them and what is NOT HUMOROUS to us IS HUMOROUS to them. At comedy films these twisted people laugh loudly at scenes which are NOT HUMOROUS, and do not laugh at really funny scenes. Their nature is skewed 180 degrees,and UP is DOWN to them. I believe that God provided us with various levels of character,which is extremely important in COMMUNICATION with others. Many think this is all HORSE MANURE, but reading such ability,or disability was once taught in schools across America it is referred to as BODY LANGUAGE. Sadly far too many people use it either for the WRONG REASONS,or slept through the classes.


  24. OBSERVER……

    I have always been amazed at how two or more black men can assemble and talk each other down using the N word with no regard to their language and everyone thinks it’s funny….If you have ever heard, or been around such a conversation, then you know what I am saying…

    But apparently, in our liberal society of today, that is acceptable conduct as long as it is one black man calling the other a n*****……but woe to a white man if he does the same….now here is my question.

    Today, if it is almost a criminal act for a white man to use the N word…why is it not almost a criminal act for a black man to use it also?

    This double standard society we live in must go….you can’t have your cake and eat it too and what’s good for the goose must also be good for the gander.

    None of my ancestors had anything whatsoever to do with slavery…in fact around the time of the Revolutionary War, they use to post signs in taverns and stage stops stating, “No dogs or Irish allowed”. That’s kind of racist talk too me. I’m sure there are still places with that attitude….furthermore, I’m getting damn sick and tired of this “black pity party” our nation seems to relish and gets off on, over and over.

    The Civil War ended 150 years ago….not one living person today can lay claim to their social plight on the back of slavery….Since 1953 and Brown vs the Board of Education, everyone can sit on the front row of the bus….. providing you get on the bus first.

    But I will be damned if I move to the back of the bus, but I most likely will STOP watching the NBA…now if that’s racist, …so mot it be.

    Now back to my question…..do you have any answers that might work?

  25. Whenever I look into the faces of MOST of the so called leaders I see little to no expression,a blank facial expression,and staring eyes. Apparently the virtues of homosexuals are the same as those of POLITICIANS. UP is DOWN!

  26. NO Oldsailor…….I have another take on that.

    A pie hole is a pie hole….. regardless if its a homosexuals pie hole, or a politicians pie hole !

  27. RMINNC………
    You scooped me on your last comment,I was about to post virtually the same comment……but I have to say you composed it very well, and it carried exactly the same meaning which I had planned to incorporate. Well done sir, and AMEN!

    “U.S. Homeownership Rate Falls to the Lowest Since 1995

    The homeownership rate in the U.S. declined to the lowest in almost 19 years as rising property prices and mortgage rates held back demand.”


  31. In Long Beach, California, it was the “PIE HOLE” that many of the mentally twisted folks used in plying their trade. That was only ONE of the reasons why the military declared OPEN SEASON on them along the Coast Highway.

    On who…..the homosexuals or the politicians?…..just kidding, I know which class.

  33. CW……..
    In our local scandal sheet one of the writers done an article on mobile homes. She also showed the graph relating to the sales of these matchboxes. Since about early 2010 the sale of mobile homes here in Northern Indiana has SKYROCKED. A 16′ x 80′ single wide with all the bells and whistles, is averaging slightly over $ 40,000.00 from the dealership. Around here there has been several new mobile home parks built,and the average lot rent runs from $250.00-$400.00 per month. I can’t help wonder where the hell these people are working to be able to pay for the mobile home ,the lot rent,the utilities,and insurance, each month,and still buy groceries. They must all be employees of our local GM assembly plant. Damn few other organisations around here do not pay enough to allow such EXTRAVAGANT LIVING,if you will! har har. I have heard that GM is paying each employee over $25.00 per hr. Do you suppose that such wages might be part of GMS problems? After all when you pay somebody that much to shove a color coded bolt into a color coded hole,and to apply a color coded nut,then tighten it with a color coded impact wrench seems a bit much,because it seems to me that the job requires little more than the intelligence level of a village idiot.

  34. My guess is that GM is buying a hell of a lot of their parts from vendors who also pay their employees above average wages. Yet for some (SO FAR UNKNOWN REASON) their designers have failed to design an ignition switch which has proven reliability. Maybe it is time for the vendors to begin reassessing the talents of their design engineers, and taking a closer look at the havoc created by the product engineers, whose purpose is to take cost out of a product. I have witnessed such pitiful practices early in my adult life. A project engineer once told me that they could design a perfect machine which would be expected to last indefinitely, yet once the product was released for production it would be an entirely different item, just because of and directly resultant of the product engineers,and the cost departments. By the time the item finally arrives at the assembly point it is much of the time a totally reworked item which has had little to NONE reliability testing,simply because doing so is OVERHEAD,and the cost environment is already near suffocating. Thanks to ….ORGANISED LABOR.

  35. VIDEO: Move Over Hillary! Don Sterling’s Girlfriend Declares, ‘I Will Become President of The U.S.!’

    Hey, what difference does it make?


  36. Good evening BOB……

    Personally if “push came to shove” I would as soon to vote for that idiot on the video you just posted, as I would that lying scumbag Hillary…….but thank God, I don’t intend to vote for either !

    I don’t see much intelligence in either of those candidates.

  37. RMinNC,
    Sorry part about the usurper is, now every idiot on the planet thinks they’re qualified to be president.

  40. OT but important
    Every liberal in America is WHINING about the allegedly BOTCHED execution of a BASTARD who raped,then shot,and buried alive a 19 year old only child of a family. The so called execution required 45 minutes after which the BASTARD died of a heart attack which was induced by the death drugs. All the liberals are up in arms, and bemoaning the horrible death he encountered. Well to the SLIMEY, TWISTED,and otherwise moronic liberals I say…… he raped,shot then buried a 19 year old only child while she was still alive. This person is the absolute worst example of humanity on earth and the B-A-S-T-A-R-D deserved a MUCH MORE PAINFUL, and LENGTHY DEATH. I WOULD HAVE PAID A KINGS RANSOM TO HAVE BEEN THE PERSON WHO INJECTED THE LETHAL DRUGS. He was a SON OF A BITC# who asked for what he got. Actually he got off pretty well,but the little lady he murdered in cold blood died a horrible death.He didn’t care about her at all so why the hell do the MORONIC twisted liberals think that he deserves a humane execution. He deserves NOTHING except an extremely painful death.I thank the person who botched the execution. I believe that there might have been divine intervention. At least the BASTARD will never again walk the earth again..

  41. ………Actually I would rather have seen the bastard PUBLICALLY HUNG.

    Bob Strauss……..
    Page had things pretty accurate. He is an Oathkeeper himself. There are a hell of a lot of the oathkeepers who are either retired or,active law enforcement officers,and a very large percentage are also military vets. As I said he has everything pretty close EXCEPT knowing exactly how the REST of us will behave when PUSH COMES TO SHOVE………..which I think is sooner than anybody has yet imagined. If you own a defensive weapon you need to get in some practice. But BEWARE, the recent case of the two teenagers in Minnesota,has opened up a real possibility of one hell of an increase in HOME INVASIONS. The PUNKS he shot had REPEATEDLY illegally entered his home and stolen property from him. He knew who they were yet the police refused to do anything about the burglaries that they perpetrated. How many times is a homeowner supposed to allow some GODDAM SNOT NOSED little PUNKS to repeatedly burglarise him. I believe he was COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED in shooting both of them no matter how many rounds was required. A hell of a lot of critical evidence was witheld from the jury. In short he was put through a KANGAROO court in a liberal state. No matter what he might have said as he fired upon the intruders was IMMATERIAL,because it occurred within his home. I hope that his attorney is going to appeal the sentence. I personally believe that the sentence should not have been above manslaughter 2, or the case should have been thrown out. The PUNKS asked for exactly what they got. They will never do it again. Yet the PROPERTY OWNER received TWO CONSECUTIVE LIFE SENTENCES for PROTECTING HIS OWN PROPERTY. He done exactly what he had every right to do. Had he challenged them and ordered them off the property at gunpoint it is probable that they would have refused, and would probably tried to kill him with whatever they could lay their hands on to use as a weapon. They had REPEATEDLY burglarised his home, and he knew who they were. Obviously the JUDGE received a little MOOLA under the table, to turn it into a Kangaroo court. I think that if this trial would have occurred in any other state he would have received a much lesser sentence. But he did in fact bring their criminal careers to a screeching halt. The snotnosed little creeps will not burglarise anyone else…ever again! Obviously they thought it was really funny. Now they know better.

    “Unexpected rise in jobless claims”


    Any of you surprised?

  47. oldsailor81

    Notr really! Especially when the alleged job increases which were touted by the WACKEY HOUSE were NOTall FULL TIME jobs. In fact a very large percentage if not all were PART TIME jobs. They work 3 months and get laid off for three to 5 years, after which if they are again employed by the same firm they will be forced to start at entry level,and pay once again.

  48. Today is the National Day of Prayer. Please take a moment at noon to say a prayer for our country.

    Get used to it because the US is being turned into another France. In the French culture a very large percentage of the population DON’T WORK AT ALL. All they do is lie around,and remain stoned out of their skulls 24/7. The unemployment in France alone is way past 30%. One by one their industries are dying. Airbus is even struggling to stay alive.

  50. Earlier today I heard the columnist, Jonah Goldberg, say something to the effect that Jay Carney is a consummate liar, plus he is a bad one at that.
    At the presser today, Jay did not disappoint. I’ve never seen so much dancing around the recently disclosed WH e-mail indicating that there was a concerted effort to conceal from the public that Benghazi was a terrorist attack.
    This is what Jay said re. the alleged coverup (for political purposes):

    “Coverup” is a bogus GOP conspiracy theory.

    Jay was at his best today in reversing the blame. As with Watergate and Nixon, it is the coverup by this administration that could bring it down. I pray that something happens soon.

    In many ways he is even a worse liar than his predecessor.
