Obama economy and Obamacare create more homeless kids, 2.5 million children, 1 in 30 American kids, 8 percent increase from 2012 to 2013, Increased in 31 states and DC, Record dropouts in labor force, Record food stamps

“One of the CBO’s most intriguing estimates is that by 2017 there will be 2 million fewer full-time jobs on the market than there would have been without Obamacare, and that figure could climb to 2.5 million by 2024.”…Market Watch February 4, 2014

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

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

 

 

Smoke and mirrors will work for a while.

The 2014 elections helped reveal the truth.

The financial markets have been propped up by the fed.

There has been a disconnect between Wall St. and Main St. or more troubling, no street, no home no hope.

2.5 million children in the US are homeless.

There was an increase of 8 percent from 2012 to 2014.

Obama’s self serving policies are a big reason for this.

Record numbers of people have dropped out of the labor force.

Record numbers of people have had their hours reduced or could only find part time jobs as a direct result of Obamacare.

Record numbers of people depend on public assistance.

From the National Center for Family and Homelessness.

“America’s Youngest Outcasts reports on child homelessness in the United States based on the most recent federal data that comprehensively counts homeless children, using more than 30 variables from over a dozen established data sets.
A staggering 2.5 million children are now homeless each year in America. This historic high represents one in every 30 children in the United States. Child homelessness increased in 31 states and the District of Columbia from 2012 to 2013. Children are homeless in every city, county, and state—every part of our country.
Based on a calculation using the most recent U.S. Department of Education’s count of homeless children in U.S. public schools and on 2013 U.S. Census data:
• 2,483,539 children experienced homelessness in the U.S. in 2013.
• This represents one in every 30 children in the U.S.
From 2012 to 2013, the number of children experiencing homelessness annually
in the U.S.:
• Increased by 8% nationally.
• Increased in 31 states and the District of Columbia.
• Increased by 10% or more in 13 states and the District of Columbia.”

“Prevalence of Child Homelessness in the United States
Based on 2013 data released in September 2014 by the U.S. Department of Education, combined with an estimate of younger non-school aged homeless children in the U.S., the number of children experiencing homelessness annually is 2,483,539—or 2.5 million children, an historic high. Using U.S. Census estimates of the total population of children under 18 years in 2013, this represents one in every 30 children.1”

  1. From the Charlotte Observer October 20, 2014.

    Charlotte’s Section 8 housing wait list triples to all-time high

    A new number has emerged to help define Mecklenburg County’s affordable housing crisis: 32,128.

    That’s how many low-income people filled out applications in just five days to be on the waiting list for Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers: three times the number who applied for such rent help when the list last opened in 2007. The substantial jump caught housing officials off guard.

    Equally surprising for the Charlotte Housing Authority is that 4,449 of those adults listed their housing status as homeless, a number that includes those in charity housing, extended stay hotels or living with a friend.

    OT, but bringing over from the last thread.

    HI, RM,

    I hadn’t seen the vid regarding Snowden, and will watch the longer one as time permits.

    Years ago, I was involved with a local UFO research group; these were scientists and professionals, not nuts who claimed Bigfoot visited their homes for tea each day at 4:00 PM. There were many valid ‘unknowns’ and we were all convinced that there was a massive global cover-up. It remains that way to this day.

    I’m not sure what Snowden has, but I’m open to any possibilities; I haven’t researched this fully, but will certainly take a look at it. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I look at it this way: If humans were the best that an all powerful, all knowing Creator could do, there’s a problem; we can’t possibly be the most intelligent beings in the universe; we’re far from it….light years away, actually.

  5. Aside from what organised labor thinks,America’s problems are indirectly the result of their twisted whims. Their idea is/was that every couple of years they should receive more pay……..but where does it stop.? I would say when their employer can no longer compete at the marketplace,and either sells out,or files for bankruptcy. When glutton minds becomes permeated with the MORE,MORE,MORE……..GIMME GIMME GIMME, thing it becomes unable to rationally function anymore,and like wild animals soon those mentally compromised people are no longer able to think,or reason……making them dependent upon the government,and charitable organisations for the necessities of life. Free living at the expense of taxpayers…….and it is fast becoming obvious that NOBODY is going to do a DAMN thing about it. Welcome to LALA fantasy land……where everything is for FREE.

  6. Here is a notion that might be worthy of deeper thought. Why would a society living on a planet that is 300 billion light years from Earth travel all that distance,just for a few bottles of Strohs, or Budweiser?

    This is terrifying to see how these rabble rousers are being indoctrinated by this “Rev.” Sekou. And we know the DOJ and Al Sharpton are right there in the cheering section. This is not your ordinary protest.

    With Obama and DOJ involvement, this reminds me of the old westerns where the gunslinger has his itchy hand poised over the gun in his holster just waiting for an excuse to pull the trigger.

  8. Uh oh! Maybe this is why Islam is so desirous of “claiming” America.
    Bunch of hogwash, in my book. Mohammed never did anything but pillage, kill, rape and destroy. And lie, too.

  9. “Researchers at the New York Federal Reserve say a still-high number of long-term unemployed — 2.92 million in October — show the labor market has not improved as much as a plunging unemployment rate implies. Unemployment fell to a six-year low of 5.8% last month from 7.2% a year earlier.”

    “The long-term unemployed refer to people who have been out of work six months or longer. Although their ranks have thinned out considerably from a record 6.77 million in 2010, the number of long-term unemployed is still more than twice as high as it was before the Great Recession started.”

  10. Zero Hedge:

    “America Truly Is Becoming A ‘1984’ Society
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 11/17/2014 – 21:53
    If only George Orwell could see us today. When he wrote “1984” back in 1948, he probably never imagined that the “totalitarian, bureaucratic world” that he imagined would ever actually become a reality. But that is precisely what is happening. The control freaks that run our society are absolutely obsessed with watching, tracking, recording and monitoring virtually everything that we do. We truly are becoming a “1984” society, and if we continue on the path that we are currently on eventually our world will be transformed into something more hellish than anything that George Orwell ever imagined.”

  11. Sue..I remember reading Phil Schneider was killed by the sheriff when he opened the door at his home.
    I watched many of his videos. One stated there were huge beings(giants) constructing the underground bunker area.
    I did see videos also of the underground–it was large enough for semis to get through.
    How can this be possible and not come to light??
    Bribes and threats.

    Those videos could probably be found on youtube.

  12. SUEK…….

    Ditto…no double ditto on your last post……I have much more to discuss with you after you catch up…….”all is not as it seems”………

    Have a good day my friend.

  13. SOME PEOPLE JUST NEVER LEARN…..

  14. JayJay….

    I think you might have Phil Schneider mixed up with William Cooper who wrote a book called, “Behold a Pale Horse”………Cooper was shot by Sheriff’s deputies on his own property…….

    Phil Schneider was strangled with a rubber hose and it was not ruled a murder…if you watch the video I post on CW;s last threads…it shows pics of his body with the rubber hose around his neck…..

    Also watch the last post I made on the prior thread of CW about Edward Snowden……if Snowden is correct in what he says..it ties in with what Phil Schneider, Bill Cooper, and others have been saying…..

    By the way, I met Bill Cooper in Arizona in 1985….. “Behold a Pale Horse ” has now become a classic……if you have a copy, don’t let it go.

  15. JayJay…….for your info

    WHAT BILL COOPER SAID
    TWO WEEKS BEFORE HE WAS KILLED

    http://www.cyberspaceorbit.com/coop01.htm

    This is tragic news. I have a few more papers left to send to my readers and my “farewell” paper, but this needed to get sent out immediately. In a nutshell: Two weeks ago, on a nighttime broadcast simulcast through a number of national radio stations, William Cooper, ex-Naval Intel, blew his Top Secret security clearance by putting together a press conference where he laid out the structure of this country’s SHADOW GOVERNMENT, tracing its roots to the UFO/Alien cover-ups that began in the 1940s-1950s.

    He was very concise and explicit, naming names and documentation, offices and meetings from the 50s on down to the1970s. He literally ripped the lid of the cover-up, and told his audience that he’d probably be killed for this. he was. This brilliant, decorated military career man left Naval Intelligence in 1975,. By his own admission, he was unable to reconcile what he’d learned while in Naval Intel, about Alien controls and secret combinations within over our government. He refused to serve the anti-constitutional “Military Industrial Complex” run by NAS/CIA and the NWO, and resigned.

    After this he began to leak info, often receiving threats on his life and family for so doing. He continued undaunted, but has been increasingly harassed for his outspoken whistle-blowing. To weeks ago he decided he could hold back what he’d learned no longer, and blew the whistle on the whole charade, naming people’s names, dates places…everything he’d learned! Apparently this was the last straw? William Cooper’s stunning presentation was bound to get him killed. He knew it, and stated it before his live audience. If anyone thinks this man’s statements were exaggerated, ask yourself WHY he was killed? There is tight security surrounding the details of the actual incident resulting in his death.

    The story is being spun to make it sound like he had a scuffle with two Sheriff deputies in which he shot one officer in the head twice. He was then. According to the official story, shot dead. The deputy is said to be alive, but Cooper was killed on the spot. You can bet your three dollar bills and wooden nickels that the truth surrounding this little “assassination” will never be revealed before it is spun beyond recognition. There is little doubt that Bill simply went too far

  16. Has anyone heard Rep. Lankford interviewed on TV? I am very impressed. He is a rising star, I believe, and one with a thinking head, sort of like Trey Gowdy. He is not opposed to a shut-down but thinks there is a way to make it less onerous if one is necessary.

    GOP HAS SECRET WEAPON TO STOP AMNESTY
    Congressman reveals why shutdown isn’t the only option

    WASHINGTON – The walls were bare and the office was in boxes, but Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., isn’t just moving out, he’s moving up – all the way up to the Senate.
    As a conservative on the rise, his opinion is in increasing demand, and the Oklahoman was repeatedly grilled on national television the day before as to whether the GOP would be willing to risk a government shutdown to stop a presidential executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.

    It is devastatingly sad what this nation has become.

    Thank God I have no children, even if I did have to deal with 3 seizure sessions by myself today with Gene!!

    It’s okay– we’re home now, and he was given enough at the ‘LOCAL’ hospital today to put a few horses to sleep for 24 hours!
    Don’t even get me started the incompetent PCP staff (not VA–they were really nice)that hung up on me twice this morning. Papers for a new doctor assignment are in the mail!

    ******************
    SueK,
    Hi SueK, I have a slightly different take on the human race, and watch in amazement as they kill each other like a marauding pack of Chimpanzees.

    Humans cut their hair, and shave their hair, from various parts of their bodies to change their appearance into less wild looking creatures than they normally would be, but they are still apes. Don’t let their appearance fool you. Many humans act civilized, and cause no harm to their own kind, but there are many who aren’t, and they can be deadly in many ways.

    I try to visualize what people on this planet would look like if grooming, as it is, didn’t exist. It would be a wilder world, that’s for sure. I also believe humans overrate their own intelligence, and worth, after all, we are just a bunch of hairy apes. Speaking of hairy apes, and having tea with Bigfoot, I am going to attach a recent picture of one of our co-inhabitants on this planet. You will notice he has not cut his hair or shaved his face, but he may be more intelligent, and love tea.

    The narration is designed to be sarcastic for the most part, sometimes aimed at non believers of the existence of Sasquatch. Turn the volume down if need be, and look at the animal. 8 to 12 feet tall and up to 1000 lbs, and hairy, not your basic democrat.

  21. Boehner’s Obamacare Lawsuit Boosted By Liberal Law Professor
    (quote)
    He may be the perfect pick for House Republicans — Turley is not only a liberal, but is friendly toward Obamacare itself, according to his writings. But he’s vociferously pushed back against President Obama’s generous use of executive action in the past and has hit the administration for its implementation of the health-care law and he said he jumped at the chance to represent House Republicans.
    “It is a great honor to represent the institution in this historic lawsuit and to work with the talented staff of the House General Counsel’s Office,” Turley wrote at his blog Monday.

    Hi Bob,

    The creationism vs. evolution debate will rage on until the end of time, IMO. I can’t help but think there’s a Higher Power looking down at the behavior of humans on Earth and shaking his/her head.

    I do believe that there are other, undiscovered creatures that share our planet. My point in mentioning it, was that we had a certain group of people who tried to infiltrate the meetings for attention (or other reasons), and who were totally off the wall.

    We, as a species, have a long way to go. Look at the animal world around us; they kill for food or when they or their offspring are threatened. Humans sometimes kill indiscriminately and for ‘fun.’ We could learn many lessons from the wild bunch but instead, we ignore their behaviors. Our mistake, I think.

  23. SueK | November 18, 2014 at 7:16 pm |

    SueK,
    Time for tea with our co-inhabitants.

    Humans will never learn, that Muslims are the cause of most of the violence on Earth.

  24. bob strauss | November 18, 2014 at 8:12 pm |

    Have one for me, Bob!

    Agree on the violence; no ‘religion’ either promotes or sanctions behavior like this, but a theocracy or cult does.

    So much for ‘the religion of peace,’ eh?
