Trump: Mexico Will Pay For Wall

leave a comment »

If Mexico refuses, Trump would stop cash sent home by Mexicans based in the US, until the country pays for a border wall.

More than 25 billion dollars is sent back to Mexico each year.

Everybody seems to be against the idea.

Why?

They would lose power and/or money.

Can the American Dream Survive?

leave a comment »

Definitely.

The problem is everyone expects it to be

—  given to them

—  a boon from government

—  for everybody

WRONG!

The American dream comes from

—  American values

—  hard work

—  fighting those opposing American values

—  not being a herd fool

The American dream was born  from American exceptionalism.

American exceptionalism came from doing things different and better than the rest of the world.

American is not supposed to be like Europe and any other region or nation.

As people in the United States wanted to be like the rest of t he world, they were killing the American dream.

The World Hates The United States

leave a comment »

From Asia, through the middle east, to Europe and the Americas it is all the same.

The people of the world have a strong dislike of the United States.

The United States is accused everything from meddling to world domination.

A lot of this dislike stems from the United States not doing what and how these people want.

There is also the fact that their own government has no control over the United States government.

As a nation, the United States does not go along with the crowd.

These idiots think the United States should do what they want.

Never going to happen; nor should it.

The United States is not blameless.  It does meddle.

Meddling itself is not a sin.  It is the why of the meddling.

And results are not guaranteed.

The world has a choice:

—  United States could withdraw from ALL international affairs including aid and participation in international organizations

—  United States could continue doing what it does

Those are the only two options.

The people of the world do NOT get to tell the United States what to do and how to do it.

If the people of the world are so concerned about everything, concentrate on the real evils of other countries.

Think North Korea and how it treats its people.

UNITED STATES REGRESSES WHILE WORLD PROGRESSES

leave a comment »

The world is progressing/improving, from China and southeast Asia to Europe: the United States is on a steep/fast decline.

Some basic facts are:  12th in economic freedom, 29th in education, 19th in corruption, No. 1 in health care spending but somehow manage 35th place in longest lifespan and 1st place in egregiously expensive medical care! The US leads the world in public debt and is No. 6 in household debt. The US has the fourth-highest poverty rate among OECD countries, and is one of the world leaders in child poverty. Per-capita income is declining, not rising.  Unemployment is on the rise and prices are going ever higher.

The message is clear:  Unless something drastic is done, the United States as a great nation is gone, finished, kaput.

This means a total change in how things are done:  TOTAL!

Do not want to believe it?

Just ask your parents and grandparents.

Politicians and government are NOT the solution; they are the problem.

Politics is more important than good solutions to both politicians and the citizens.  This only leads to the continued decline of the nation.  Political solutions are never good solutions.

The nation can be saved and rise to greatness again, but not without a total change.

NEW POLITICAL PARTY (newpoliticalparty.wordpress.com) has the solutions the nation needs.

Are you part of the problem?

Or do you want to be part of the America our forefathers envisioned?

37 Facts About How Cruel This Economy Has Been To Millions Of Desperate American Families

Have you ever laid in bed awake at night with a knot in your stomach because you didn’t know how your family was possibly going to make it through the next month financially? Have you ever felt the desperation of not being able to provide the basic necessities for your family even though you tried as hard as you could?

All over America tonight, there are millions of desperate families that are being  ripped apart by this economy. There aren’t nearly enough jobs, and millions of  Americans that actually do have jobs aren’t making enough to even provide the basics for their families. When you have tried everything that you can think of and nothing  works, it can be absolutely soul crushing.  Today, one of my regular readers explained that he was not going to be online for a while because his power had been turned off.  He has been out of work for quite a while, and eventually the money runs out. Have you ever been there?

If you have ever experienced that moment, you know that it stays with you for the rest of your life. If you are single that is bad enough, but when you have to look into the eyes of your children and explain to them why there won’t be any dinner tonight or why they have to move into a homeless shelter it can feel like someone has driven a stake into your heart. In this article you will find a lot of very shocking economic statistics. But please remember that behind each statistic are the tragic stories of  millions of desperately hurting American families.

Over the past decade, things have steadily gotten worse for American families no matter what our politicians have tried. Poverty and government dependence continue to rise. The cost of living continues to go up and incomes continue to go down. It is truly frightening to think about what this country is going to look like if current trends continue.

The following are 37 facts that show how cruel this economy has been to millions of desperate American families…

1. One recent survey discovered that 40 percent of all Americans have $500 or less in savings.

2. A different recent survey found that 28 percent of all Americans do not have a single penny saved for emergencies.

3. In the United States today, there are close to 10 million households that do not have a single bank account. That number has increased by about a million since 2009.

4. Family homelessness in the Washington D.C. region (one of the wealthiest regions in the entire country) has risen 23 percent since the last recession began.

5. The number of Americans living in poverty has increased by about 6 million over the past four years.

6. Median household income has fallen for four years in a row. Overall, it has declined by more than $4000 over the past four years.

7. 62 percent of middle class Americans say that they have had to reduce household spending over the past year.

8. According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, 85 percent of middle class Americans say that it is more difficult to maintain a middle class standard of  living today than it was 10 years ago.

9. In the United States today, 77 percent of all Americans are living to paycheck to paycheck at least some of the time.

10. In the United States today, more than 41 percent of all working age Americans are not working.

11. Since January 2009, the “labor force” in the United States has increased by 827,000, but “those not in the labor force” has increased by 8,208,000. This is how they have gotten the unemployment numbers to “come down”.

12. Sadly, 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession were mid-wage jobs, but 58 percent of the jobs created since then have been low wage jobs.

13. Today, about one out of every four workers in the United States brings home wages that are at or below the federal poverty level.

14. Right now, the United States actually has a higher percentage of workers doing low wage work than any other major industrialized nation does.

15. At this point, less than 25 percent of all jobs in the United States are “good jobs”, and that number continues to shrink.

16. There are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing.  That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.

17. According to USA Today, many Americans have actually seen their water bills triple over the past 12 years.

18. Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

19. In 1999, 64.1 percent of all Americans were covered by employment-based health insurance. Today, only 55.1 percent are covered by employment-based health insurance.

20. Health insurance premiums rose faster than the overall rate of inflation in 2011 and that is happening once again in 2012. In fact, it has been happening for a very long time.

21. According to one recent survey, approximately 10 percent of all employers in the United States plan to drop health coverage when key provisions of the new health care law kick in less than two years from now.

22. Back in 1983, the bottom 95 percent of all income earners had 62 cents of debt for every dollar that they earned. By 2007, that figure had soared to $1.48.

23. Total home mortgage debt in the United States is now about 5 times larger than it  was just 20 years ago.

24. Total consumer debt in the United States has risen by 1700 percent since 1971.

25. Recently it was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar mark.

26. According to one recent survey, approximately one-third of all Americans are not paying their bills on time at this point.

27. Right now, approximately 25 million American adults are living at home with their parents.

28. The percentage of Americans that find that they are able to retire when they reach retirement age continues to decline. According to one new survey, 70 percent of middle class Americans plan to work during retirement and 30 percent plan to work until they are at least 80 years old.

29. The U.S. economy lost more than 220,000 small businesses during the recent recession.

30. In 2010, the number of jobs created at new businesses in the United States was less than half of what it was back in the year 2000.

31. Back in 2007, 19.2 percent of all American families had a net worth of zero or less than zero.  By 2010, that figure had soared to 32.5 percent.

32. Approximately 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be either “low income” or impoverished.

33. In the United States today, somewhere around 100 million Americans are considered to be either “poor” or “near poor”.

34. In October 2008, 30.8 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, 46.7 million Americans are on food stamps.

35. Approximately one-fourth of all children in the United States are enrolled in the food stamp program.

36. Right now, more than 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government. And that does not even count Social Security or Medicare.

37. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an all-time record 49 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives financial assistance from the federal government. Back in 1983, that number was less than 30 percent.

What makes all of this even more frightening is that many homeless shelters and food banks around the nation are so overloaded at this point that they are already over capacity.  Just consider this example…

When Janice Coe, a homeless advocate in Loudoun County, learned through her prayer group that a young woman was sleeping in the New Carrollton Metro station with a toddler and a 2-month-old, she sprang into action.

Coe contacted the young woman and arranged for her to take the train to Virginia,  where she put the little family up in a Comfort Suites hotel. Then Coe began calling shelters to see who could take them.

Despite several phone calls, she came up empty. Coe was shocked to learn that many of the local shelters that cater to families were full, including Good Shepherd Alliance,  where Coe was once director of social services.

“I don’t know why nobody will take this girl in,” Coe said. “The baby still had a hospital bracelet on her wrist.”

Keep in mind that Loudoun Country is smack dab in the middle of one of the wealthiest areas of Virginia.

So if things are that bad in the wealthy areas, exactly how bad are things getting in many of the poorer areas?

Unfortunately, things continue to get worse for this economy. DuPont has just announced plans to eliminate 1,500 jobs. There are more major layoff  announcements almost every single day.  So how bad will things get when our  crumbling economic system finally collapses?  When kind of chaos will be unleashed  all over the nation when millions upon millions of Americans finally lose all hope?

In the introduction to this article, I mentioned that one of my regular readers has had his lights turned off. The following is how he described his situation…

No gas, no water, no electricity at my house. Couldn’t pay the bills. I’m broke.   Desperately searching for any means of income, or at least enough cash to get the juice (electricity) restored.

Typing this missive in a dark house using the battery on my laptop. Feels like I’m camping out at home. Hope to get this situation fixed tomorrow¦ somehow. Needless to say, I hate this.

I was ready for this, but it is still a major league inconvenience. For those of you who DO have power, etc. – and are not ready oh brother. You need to get ready. Seriously,  you do. Because what I’m going through is just an inconvenience. It may someday be a normal occurrence. Ugh. (expletives deleted)

Hopefully a way can be found to get his situation turned around, but the truth is that there are tens of millions of other similar stories out there in America today.

What about you? What are things like in your neck of the woods?

The above article by Michael, the economic collapse.

DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE?

The economy of the United States is failing.  It has been failing for many years.  The politicians and the government have been unable and/or unwilling to do anything about it.  So, the economy is going to continue to fall/fail.  More and more Americans are going to live in absolute poverty; until almost everybody does, like a third world nation.

What is/are the answer(s)/solution(s)?

The American Economy Is Doomed

leave a comment »

That the economy is said to be growing at a decent pace. But the typical family has been losing ground. Real household disposable income is going down for the thirteenth year in a row in 2012. Hourly wages, adjusted for inflation, have not increased for three decades, and yet, we are told, this is the world’s most dynamic economy. Where to begin to explain this picture? The figures lie – they’ve been bent and beaten by the government’s statisticians. But even if they are straightened out, it doesn’t help America’s middle classes. GDP is not really growing as fast as reported. Most families really are getting poorer. Bankruptcies have more than doubled, for example, since the first Clinton term. Savings rate have dropped to a new record: minus 1.5%. Wage rates are getting globalized – good and hard. This makes some businesses more profitable; they have been able to take advantage of lower earnings in Asia. But it leaves homegrown labor struggling to make ends meet. The only way they’ve been able to put the two ends of the budget together has been with debt. It is a “plastic safety net” for America’s middle and lower classes, say economists. When they reach in their pockets and find no coin or paper, they pull out plastic. Average credit card debt has grown to $8,650 per family, say recent surveys.

So, what are you going to do?

Sit around and say:  it will not happen to me?  Yeah, right; it is going to happen to EVERYBODY.

Rely on the government?  That is what got the nation into this mess.

Pray?

How about doing something yourself?  That could work.

Want to know exactly what to do to save the nation’s economy?

romney: “47% of Americans Do Not Count”

leave a comment »

The above may not be an exact quote, but it is close enough.

There are two facts related to this statement:  the statement is very true and it seems heartless.

47% may not be the exact percentage, but a large portion of the people living in the United States are worthless; these people are of NO benefit or value to the nation while being a huge burden both economically and socially on the nation.  This burden is so large, it will totally destroy the United States as you know it; this burden is well on the way to accomplishing this.

The choice is plain:  sacrifice the 47% or lose the nation and ruin the lives of everybody else.

Heartless in the opinion of many, and the necessary thing to do in the minds of just as many.

Very few who read this will believe it.  That is the reason the nation will not be saved.  And if everyone believed it, too few would be willing for the nation to take the necessary actions.

To protect real, hard working Americans and the nation, the 47% must be eliminated by any means necessary.

The important first step is a change in the mindset of all Americans.
