Are Things As Bad As They Seem?

The partisanship…..the extremism……lack of respect…….the out right lies…….the misinformation (and yes, it is different from lies)…….and it all comes down to the American voter….YOU voted for morons and now you are paying the price for that vote…..I know, what could be so bad we might get lower taxes and balanced budget and spending controls….what could be so bad?

Glad you asked!  While you were bobbing and weaving through the political shit slinging….the middle class suffers…….while you were thumping your chest about “Obamacare” or Planned Parenthood or NPR…..while you were being lead down a alternative road, which by the way, has NO place to go…it is a DEAD END!……the working class is being attacked and systematically being wipe out…..Where’s my proof of what I say?

Sorry to say, next year it may all get worse……(but that is another post….coming soon)…….

BLN.com writer Micheal Synder has a really good look at this situation……..

#1 Only 58 percent of Americans have a job right now.

#2 Only 56 percent of Americans are currently covered by employer-provided health insurance.

#3 The median yearly wage in the United States is $26,261.

#4 The average American household is carrying $75,600 in debt.

#5Only the top 5 percent of U.S. households have earned enough additional income to match the rise in housing costs since 1975.

#6 At this point, American families are approximately 7.7 trillion dollars poorer than they were back in early 2007.

#7 The poorest 50% of all Americans now own just 2.5% of all the wealth in the United States.

#8 According to one study, approximately 21 percent of all children in the United States were living below the poverty line in 2010.

#9 Today, there are more than 44 million Americans on food stamps, and nearly half of them are children.

#10According to Newsweek, close to 20 percent of all American men between the ages of 25 and 54 do not have a job at the moment.

Not one of those points shows that the Middle Class will ever recovery….this whole situation is making a two class system….”haves and have nots”  (sorry, but it is a good term)……..

In closing, something to think about…….under Pelosi the House introduced 200+ bills..,..under the leadership of Boehner it has issued 12….even if they work the asses off the Reps….the best it could do is about 50….remind me again what we pay these guys and gals to do!

  1. Glad I woke up….The Right don’t give a damn about the economy, they care about making things hard on Obama so they can take back the White House.

    1. Terrance so true…..I hear pundits bitching about Obama’s lack of involvement……I think it is BS…I mean why would you assert yourself into a debate when everything you say is wrong even if it was the Repubs idea to begin with?

    1. Spinny ……..it has been happening for about 30 years and few people have noticed until now…..we Americans are not the sharpest tacks in the box, are we?

  2. Why did the nationalists fail?.Emilio Aquinaldo and the leadership of this movement were upper class. He didnt want to disrupt that upper class structure since many upper class Filipinos had collaborated — a lot of them hadnt but some of them had.

    1. I am not real knowledgeable about the politics of the Philippines….but if they are anything like the rest of the world….I would say that the nationalist movement leaves a bad taste in the people’s mouths when they like democracy….nationalism has a tendency to degrade into authoritarianism or totalitarianism……
