“There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.”…Gallup CEO Jim Clifton 

“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

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

 

The Guilford County NC, Greensboro High Point metro area has been hit hard by the Obama economy and impact of Obamacare.

But in many ways it represents the plight of much of mainstreet US in increased poverty and food assistance needs.

White American employment has been decimated since Obama Took office in January 2009.

Since January 2015 there are 74,000 fewer white Americans employed.

And the disgusting, Obama protecting media is not telling you this.

The data comes straight from the US Labor Department.

The labor force participation rate in NC has dropped 4.3 % under Obama so it is no surprise that people are suffering in Guilford County NC and much of the country.

“Guilford County poverty: Old story, new faces

The elderly woman, who worked all her life but is now on a fixed income, was explaining that she had tried going without her medicine so she could eat.

“That wasn’t wise,” the diabetic told Tyra Clymer, the emergency assistance program director at Greensboro Urban Ministry, after asking for a few bags of food on Thursday.

Similar stories were circulating around the agency’s dining hall tables at the Potter’s House community kitchen, which feeds as many as 600 people daily for lunch. And across the desk to intake workers in offices going over family income with those there for help to keep the power on. And just outside the building, where this woman and others finish hours-long waits to get a few bags of groceries.

Demand for services at Urban Ministry is already up as much as 20 to 50 percent across the board.

There are waiting lists at the Pathways Center, which houses homeless families, and Partnership Village, for the formerly homeless.

Observers only expect it to get worse next year when adults without children or a disability will be moved off public assistance after a three-month time limit.

NC Policy Watch notes that with state House Bill 318, the average income of the people who will lose their food assistance is just $2,236 per year.

Chris Fitzsimon the group’s executive director, says this is in addition to the cuts that have been made to unemployment benefits, childcare subsidies, pre-K for at-risk kids and services in the schools.

“It’s going to fall on a patchwork of nonprofits and individuals to try to pick up the slack,” Fitzsimon said.

Statistics say some of the fastest-growing poverty in the country is reported in the Greensboro-High Point metro area. Last year, polls showed the area as among the hungriest in the country.

Those who work with the needy point to the growing addition of families who have fallen out of the middle class because of layoffs or companies closing or underemployment; of working-class people grappling with loss of benefits or reduced hours or rising prices that give them less to live on; and of those who can’t find work or have given up on looking.

Many end up in line at Urban Ministry.

“I see people just like me,” said Valerie Martin, who was at Urban Ministry Thursday. She has a food service job on a local college campus but stops by once or twice a year for the groceries when her own means won’t stretch.

Ask Clymer about the changing face of poverty, and this is it.

It’s that woman in the nursing uniform sitting down Thursday to a hot meal, perhaps on her lunch break.

It’s those children spooning up food across the room.

“I don’t like to see kids hungry, but when they are here, you wonder if it might be the only meal they get,” said Howard Coates, a board member clearing off tables at the Potter’s House, who was once homeless himself.”

Oh, by the way, until recently Greensboro functioned as a sanctuary city providing illegal aliens with opportunities while stifling those of native born Americans.

    “Food Banks In New York Are Running Out Of Food”

    “Welcome to the Recovery! Food banks across the US state of New York are running out of food (37% of food pantries say they have had to turn away needy people because they ran out of food), amid falling funds and rising demand from people that have trouble affording food. About 2.6 million people have trouble affording food across New York with about 1.4 million New York City residents relying on food pantries to feed themselves, according to the Food Bank For New York City. But as PressTV reports, contrary to the belief that people visiting food pantries are homeless and jobless, most customers are employed, but are not paid enough money to put food on the table without help.”

    “Guide to free meals in Greensboro reveals depth of food insecurity”

    “A new booklet has been going around town since April.

    Lime-colored. Eight pages thick.

    Think of “The Little Green Book: Free Meals in Greensboro” as a weekly planner for the needy.”

    “But this article isn’t about the booklet, which lists 30 churches and other sites serving free meals either weekly or monthly.

    It’s about what the booklet has revealed: There’s more “food insecurity” in Greensboro than anyone realized.

    “People are hungry,” said Dennis Bass, among 225 people waiting downtown Monday night for free turkey sandwiches and chips. “I don’t know how it got to this point.””

    http://www.greensboro.com/news/guide-to-free-meals-in-greensboro-reveals-depth-of-food/article_2383d990-0ef4-11e5-9d8e-eb9c2ff86b33.html

  3. This guy seems to know what’s going on…what about the other 200 million American’s ( and 20 million illegal Mexican’s) ?

  4. The REAL history of the Middle East by a man who knows…from Jimmy Carter to Barack Hussan Obama …all withing four minutes…..powerful and it’s all true.

  5. I’ve become careful and cautious what agencies I donate to lately.
    Once given, you are probably targeted by zillions–or I am.
    And there are many VA organizations.
    But, today I received a request for a Texas Thanksgiving dinner for the needy—$2.25 each person.
    I didn’t give my CC # as requested but sent cash in a camouflaged way.

    I may have gotten duped, but they don’t have my CC #, no address, and no checking account #.
    How morally corrupt our nation has become when we must resort to donating in person to ensure care is directed where needed!!!

  6. I volunteer weekly in a church based soup kitchen. We serve a hot meal and they receive a bag of food . It’s contents vary weekly. It might have a can of soup, a can of vegetables, a pound of speghetti, cereal or pancake mix. We always have meat but it is usually chicken with odd packages of beef, steak or ground turkey. This is a very small town of 4500 people. We give out between 45-80 bags a week. Most are not homeless, many are older or disabled but we also have a few younger families. We try to keep any juice or milk for the families. I feel that we are supplementing what they purchase from the grocery store to stretch their dollars just a little bit farther. If someone asks for something specific, if we have it on the shelves we give it. If someone comes in for the first time we try to give them a little bit more. If you are leery about giving to national charities, contribute to your local food bank or soup kitchen. We have no overhead costs and we are all volunteers.

    RE Wake up call (Great Post)
    Just received this enlightening e-mail.

    ————————————————————–

    A suicide bomber completed his mission
    and went to Paradise, as foretold.

    When he arrived there he said to Allah
    that he was ready to claim his 72 virgins,
    as promised. Out of curiosity he asked Allah why there were so many virgins in heaven.

    Allah regarded him for a moment, then replied, “Actually, the 72 virgins are here in heaven because people like you murdered them before they could experience the pleasure of sex. So you are here to service them. Since they’re virgins, they’re quite sexually ravenous

    and, frankly, you’ll be on constant, exhausting duty. I shall banish you to Satan should you fail!”

    The bomber responded, “Well, I guess I can live with that. How hard can it be to keep 72 women satisfied for all eternity?”

    Allah replied, “Who told you they were women?”

  8. hapNhal………
    ………..my sympathies as well, which go BAAAAAAH! har har

  9. AND NOW………
    ………….the DO GOODERS once again are blaming George Bush for EVERYTHING………their TWISTED PEA SIZED MINDS have only one track, and are otherwise incapable of reason or logic. This is referred to as LIBERALISM which in truth is a serious mental deficiency.

  10. MORE IMPORTANTLY……..
    ………….NOW the DO GOODERS, and the BLEEDING HEARTS LIBERALS, along with the REST OF THE WORLD have LOOKED UPON A VERY CLEAR EXAMPLE of what we all are going to soon be facing…….thanks to the leadership of our elected GOAT LOVER. I pray that ALL of those who sympathise with, and support the BASTARD are the first to feel the bullets of the stinking a$$ed goat herders…… at least they have the courage to do what Americans SHOULD HAVE DONE long ago………INSTEAD OF TALKING!

  11. AND SO TO ALL………
    ……….I say “TAKE YOUR FAVORITE STUFFED TEDDY BEAR TO BED WITH YOU EACH NITE, because it might be the very last thing you will ever see or hold again! You might try praying also! Then if you HAVE TIME you might start saying the same thing that was in the video posted by oldsoldier,79 wherein the French lady said what all Americans should be saying , and thinking. WATCH AND WEEP! I would venture to guess that Soetoro’s GOON SQUAD is already in France hunting for her……..so they can “FUDDY” her.

  12. bye bye………….have a great Sunday WHILE YOU STILL CAN!

  13. hapnHal…..

    that was a good one…and most likely true….if they will screw a goat…they will screw their fellow LGBT too…..

  14. I picked this up on international news this morning:

    “German Chancellor Angela Merkel responded to the Paris massacre by calling for “tolerance” towards migrants and respect for “the right of everyone to seek his fortune and live,” as her policy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of refugees came under fresh scrutiny.

    “We believe in the right of everyone to seek his fortune and live, to the respect for the other and tolerance,” said Merkel. “We know that our free life is stronger than any terrorist. Let’s give the terrorists the answer by living our values confidently. And as we affirm these values throughout Europe. Now more than ever.”
    ———————————————————————————————–
    I have but ONE question to ask Angela Merkel……”Will you still be asking for “tolerance” as these blood-thristy Islamic bastards are cutting off you %$#@&%$ head, or will you be whimpering like a baby as the blood flows”?

    I can not speak for everyone, but as for me there is no room in my thinking for tolerance toward mad animals…..we have no compulsion about shooting a vicious mad dog that roams our streets….what is the difference between them and ISIS ?

    However, we are losing this battle, because we are MISSING the big picture….as we chase the shadows of 4 or 5 ISIS killers around in Europe….tens of thousand more are welcomed into Europe with open arms….that is the BIG PICTURE and that is the future …and our channels are not tuned into that station.

    Well, I’m off to church to hear the masses laminate about the dead people in Paris, and at the same time praise all of Europe for letting more come in to destroy them……….It’s universal madness, but it’s “politically correct”..

    In my church, the people never seem to think into the future…most are dealing with things of the past…..I try every week to tell them there is “NO SUCH THING AS A MODERATE MUSLIM” because Mohammad will not permit that and there are no exceptions…..so far, I’m out voiced…..but in time, they will understand …..after it’s too late.

    As I said in a previous post…all my bullets are coated in pigs blood and bacon fat……so bring it on !

  15. BACK FOR A MINUTE…….
    AND NOW…….
    Trump is the ONLY person who is questioning the mentality of America along with that of the people of Iowa. IN SHORT…..YOU CAN BELIEVE ABSOLUTE BULLSHI# OR YOU CAN RESEARCH THE PAST AND FIND THE TRUTH. CARSON IS NOW DISCOVERING THIS SORT OF INVECTIVE FROM THE LYING BASTARDS WHO ARE TRYING VERY HARD TO TWIST WORDS, AND HIS PAST IN A BLATANT ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE STUPID PUBLIC THINK UP IS DOWN……..and the public responds by CONFIRMING all suspicions regarding THEIR OWN STUPIDITY!
    The Soetoros, the Clintons, the Leahys, the Durbins, etc are classic examples of OF THE BULLSHI# SPREADERS, AND EVERYTHING that is WRONG WITH AMERICA AT PRESENT! LET THE CRUSADES BEGIN! BEAT ISIS HEADS TO PULP, AND FEED THEIR BODIES TO SHARKS, AND ABOVE ALL BURN ALL THE KOURANS YOU CAN FIND. ………THE KOURAN IS THE SCRIPTURES OF SATAN, AND A FALSE PROPHET.

    BYE BYE AGAIN.

  16. WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU SO…NOW LISTEN TO SOMEONE WHO KNOWS SO…….

    ‘Just wait…’ Islamic State reveals THEY have smuggled THOUSANDS of Islamic extremists into Europe

    AN OPERATIVE working for Islamic State has revealed the terror group has successfully smuggled thousands of covert Islamic terrorist jihadists into Europe.

    The Syrian operative claimed more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had been smuggled into western nations – hidden amongst (innocent?) refugees.

    The ISIS smuggler, who is in his thirties and is described as having a trimmed jet-black beard, revealed the ongoing clandestine operation is a complete success.

    “Just wait,” he smiled.

    The Islamic State operative spoke exclusively to BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity and is believed to be the first to confirm plans to infiltrate western countries.

    Islamic State, also referred to as IS and ISIS, is believed to be actively smuggling deadly gunmen across the sparsely-guarded 565-mile Turkish border and on to richer European nations, he revealed.

    They are following the well-trodden route taken by refugees and migrants fleeing, travelling across the border of Turkey then on boats across to Greece and through Europe.

    There are now more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen “ready” across the European Union, he claimed.

    The operative said the undercover infiltration was the beginning of a larger plot to carry out revenge attacks in the West in retaliation for the US-led coalition airstrikes.

    He said: “If someone attacks me then for sure I will attack them back.”

    Two Turkish refugee-smugglers backed up the claims made by the ISIS Syrian operative.

    One admitted to helping more than ten trained ISIS rebels infiltrate Europe under the guise of asylum seekers.

    He said: “I’m sending some fighters who want to go and visit their families.

    “Others just go to Europe to be ready.”

    The Syrian operative, a former member of his nation’s security forces, said ISIS had ambitious plans ahead.

    He said: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world,” he said “and we will have it soon, God willing.”

    The operative agreed to a meeting at the urging of a former Free Syrian Army gunman who fought alongside him in the war.

    The Syrian said he had been granted permission to attend the meeting by his superior in ISIS — a radical referred to by members of the group as an “emir.”

    He said: “There are some things I’m allowed to tell you and some things I’m not.”

    During the meeting, the operative said he believed future attacks would only target Western governments – not civilians.

    Although details of terror plot are something over which he has little control, he claims.

    The revelation comes after a spokesperson for Islamic State earlier this year called on Muslims in the West to carry out terror attacks.
    ———————————————————————————————-

    Well…I hate to tell you I said this would happen when you have NO security checks on anyone…and the fact that 4 out of every 5 people (refugees?) OF THOSE TEN OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE STREAMING ACROSS THE TURKISH BORDER were young men WITHOUT females …you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out…..so I’m going to say it again……..

    “I TOLD YOU SO”……..and it is getting ready to happen here in America….

  17. Tried to post this video yesterday, and couldn’t, one more try.

  18. Now….someone tell me again about all these fuc@#$% “Moderate Muslims” and how peaceful they are…and how we should learn to co-exist with this peaceful cult of lunatics …….I want to hear that Bull$hit just one more time…..please tell me about the goodness of their heart !

    In church this morning I had someone telling me that the majority of Muslims are peaceful and these people going around cutting off people’s heads are the exception and that Islam really is a peaceful religion….I learned a long time ago that you cannot argue with someone who has the intelligence of a telephone pole……I ask him one simple question….”If Islam is such a peaceful religion, why do we not hear stories of the ‘peaceful ‘ Muslims standing up and condemning the radicals…”? he could not answer that question….I walked away…leaving him attempting to answer the question…..

  19. THINK ABOUT THIS MY FRIENDS……

    Now if the radicals can take down monuments and statues honoring our southern heritage…then “let’s go all the way” and ban Coke-Cola….after all…….

    It’s only the “politically correct” thing to do !!!!

  20. THE FRENCH ARE PUZZLED ABOUT ISIS TRAINING CAMPS…..

    France launches ‘massive’ series of airstrikes in Syria against ISIS, destroys jihadi training ground ….and they are wondering why those camps are still there since Obama has been telling us he bombed them out of existence….

    France launched a “massive” series of airstrikes against the Islamic State’s capital in Syria Sunday, a defense official said.

    The strikes by 12 aircrafts, including 10 jets, demolished a jihadi training camp and munitions dump, the French official said.

    Twenty bombs were dropped in the evening bombardment, which was the first sign of France escalating its campaign in the war-torn country following the terrorist attacks in Paris.
    ———————————————————————————————-
    Well for the benefit of the French people…here is the answer…all America has been bombing is the desert sands……and anyone who wants to believe we have been hitting ISIS targets…I have a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in.

  21. Received an interesting e-mail from a friend
    Don’t have anyway to verify, but this surely stirs the mind…….

    Immigrant situation in Europe (Germany) Now !

    ONE PERSPECTIVE FROM SOMEONE WHO IS LITERALLY ‘ON THE SPOT’…………….

    From: Arlene Blake

    My uncle’s wife is German, and has relatives and many friends living in Germany, where she
    visits often. The following came from them:

    I have friends in Europe and one of them directed me to the following today. This is an eyewitness story from a doctor working in Germany at a Munich hospital, a retired physician from the Czech Republic who went to work there because they needed additional help.

    This is part of her email from Germany:

    ————–EMAIL FROM GERMANY —————

    Yesterday, at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other
    Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting
    to send everything to the hospitals.

    Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we women are refusing to go
    among those animals, especially from Africa. Relations between the staff and migrants are
    going from bad to worse. Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be
    accompanied by police with K-9 units.

    Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases. If they receive a
    prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash. This leads to unbelievable
    outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children.
    They abandon their children with pharmacy staff with the words: “So, cure them here yourselves!” So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.

    Where are all those who had welcomed in front of TV cameras, with signs at train stations?
    Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will
    definitely not be able to get rid of them.

    Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least
    3.5 million. Most of these people are completely unemployable. A bare minimum of them
    have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that
    one in ten is pregnant. They have brought along infants and little kids under six, many
    emaciated and neglected. If this continues and Germany re-opens its borders, I’m going
    home to the Czech Republic. Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even at double
    the salary that I make at home. I went to Germany, not to Africa or the Middle East.

    Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the
    cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meet young
    men in the hallways who just wait with their hand outstretched, want everything for free,
    and when they don’t get it they throw a fit.

    I really don’t need this! But I’m afraid that if I return, that at some point it will be the same
    in the Czech Republic. If the Germans, with their nature cannot handle this, there in the
    Czech Republic it would be total chaos. Nobody who has not come in contact with them
    has any idea what kind of animals they are, especially the ones from Africa, and how
    Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation.

    For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here,
    but, with so many hundreds of patients every day ? this is just a question of time.

    In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed
    over an 8-month-old on the brink of death, which they had dragged across half of Europe
    for three months. The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the
    best pediatric clinics in Germany. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses
    are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.

    The local press is forbidden to write about it. What would have happened to a German if
    he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis-
    infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum he’d
    go straight to jail and later to court. With these people ? so far, nothing has happened.

    And so I ask, where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations? Sitting
    pretty at home, enjoying their non-profits and looking forward to more trains. If it were up
    to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s
    emergency ward, as attendants. Then, into one building with the migrants so they can
    look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today
    are in every hospital here in Bavaria.

    ————– END EMAIL FROM GERMANY —————

    Obama and Kerry want to bring 200,000 or more of these people to the United States.

    Our own Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have indicated that they cannot vet these people. Our own intelligence agencies have indicated that something over 5% are probably going to be ISIS infiltrators. All of the issues described above not with-standing, in addition (and more importantly) do we really want over 10,000 committed terrorists spread across the country in addition to these other problems as described above?
    ————————————————————————
    and now Paris has been attacked
    where will it end?
    and they call us infidels.

  22. hapNhal………

    AND NOW …….
    ……….you know exactly why all of the Japanese Americans were rounded up and interred for the duration of WW2. There was INFILTRATORS, and SYMPATHISERS among them……but it is extremely doubtful if the Muslims in America will ever be rounded up.The murderous BASTARDS will HIDE among them, and you can be sure that Muslims will never tell of the presence of a BASTARD in their house.

  23. …………THE BASTARD in DC…….
    ………has INVITED THOUSANDS of the Syrian BASTARDS into America, and not a soul has said a word against it. Here is a word of advice for all Americans…………ARM YOURSELVES WITH AS MUCH FIREPOWER YOU CAN AFFORD, AND LAY IN A EXTRA LARGE SUPPLY OF AMMO AS WELL………..YOU MIGHT NEED TO CALL UPON YOUR “EQUALISERS” VERY SOON!

  24. Major rift among Democrats: Obama and Sanders say climate change causes terrorist attacks; HRC says they are cause by insulting videos. This clash is threatening to tear the party asunder.

  25. ……..What happened to Benito Mussolini might happen AGAIN.? Does anyone CARE? There are THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE talking about Mussolini’s DEMISE, at the hands of his constituents. The Italians got rid of a tyrant.

  26. BillG……….
    ……….which tells the story about the intelligence quotient of ALL THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES……..NONE OF THEM ARE CORRECT!
