    Going Under: Over One Million Lose Unemployment Benefits – Will Hit Five Million By End of 2014

    Sinking Economy

    Earlier this year government benefits for nutritional assistance were reduced after the expiration of emergency legislation that was enacted following the 2008 financial collapse. Nearly all of the 48 million people receiving food stamp distributions were affected. The move led to warnings from food pantries and recipients around the country who said that the $40 billion in cuts would leave many American families without the ability to put food on dinner tables across America. According to Feed America, the roughly $29 per family that would no longer appear on their EBT cards will amount to about 1.5 billion meals in 2014.

    But that was just the beginning.

    Because the government now claims that we are in a period of economic growth we will see more cuts to emergency assistance over the course of the next year.

    And it starts today.

    As of midnight Saturday some 1.3 million Americans who lost their jobs in the last two years and were left with no choice but to collect unemployment benefits due to the worst jobs market since the Great Depression have now seen their benefits expire.

    Long-term unemployment benefits for 1.3 million Americans expired Saturday after Congress failed to pass an extension. Reinstating those benefits is expected to be one of the first priorities for congressional Democrats in the new year.

    “Extending unemployment insurance is the right thing to do for millions of Americans who are trying to support their families,” Democratic National Committee chairwoman and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement Saturday. “What makes matters worse, the loss of benefits comes just a few days after the holidays.”

    CNN

    This morning, the President placed separate telephone calls to Senator Jack Reed and Senator Dean Heller to offer his support for their proposal to extend emergency unemployment benefits for three months,” White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement.

    “The President said his administration would, as it has for several weeks now, push Congress to act promptly and in bipartisan fashion to address this urgent economic priority.”

    Obama says the abrupt cut-off in cash assistance during the holidays will hurt economic growth and jobs.

    Fox News

    Here’s the kicker. By the end of 2014 the number of Americans who will lose access to long-term unemployment benefits will be five times higher:

    By July, another 1.9 million people will get the boot from extended benefits. By the end of 2014, 1.6 million more will be kicked off, totaling about 5 million Americans.

    Bloomberg

    Five millions Americans will be losing access to what essentially amounts to their paycheck. And we’re not talking about a $29 cut to food stamps. We’re talking about a mortgage payment, a healthcare payment, and funds to pay for essential utilities.

    All of it will be vaporized by the end of the year. This will affect not just those five million people, but their dependents as well, which amounts to at least an additional 5 – 10 million people.

    Congress and the President propose to extend these benefits for another three months, and most would suggest that this will avert the emergency.

    That notion is laughable.

    What happens after we kick the can down the road for another three months? Will President Obama somehow magically create 1.3 million shovel-ready jobs?

    The problem is that there are no meaningful jobs available. So you can extend these benefits for six months, or even two more years, and we’ll be right back where we started once they expire – perhaps even worse off as prices for everything from food to utilities to health care rise unabated.

    When a DHS Insider warned recently of a crisis of unprecedented magnitude within the United States he noted that we are in the midst of a long-term economic collapse.

    Given what is transpiring around us, can anyone honestly say that our economy is actually recovering?

    President Obama claims that failing to extend the unemployment benefits for these 1.3 million people will hurt economic growth and jobs. He has just broadcast the severity of the situation we face.

    It should be clear that without government intervention and backroom machinations the entire system will come unglued. Stocks would crash, millions would be starving in the streets, and the violence that the Department of Homeland Security and US military have been preparing for would take hold across the streets of America.

    That may sound sensational, but consider that just one week ahead of the cut to food stamp benefits of $29 per family the Department of Homeland Security spent $80 million to beef up security in New York City with the expectation that those who lost their benefits would start rioting. They know that we are rapidly approaching a breaking point, otherwise why would they be preparing for it?

    The government has no choice but to keep pumping out money and emergency assistance, whether that be to people who have lost their jobs or the banks that provide the lending. The second (literally) that they pull back on the monetary, financial and economic intervention we will see a catastrophe that few can imagine.

    It’s coming.

    If you’re paying attention you can’t go a day without seeing the signs.

    The only question is: Are you prepared for when it happens?

          I have also been self-employed for 90%+ of my adult life. It has always been feast or famine for me. I have never had the benefit of unemployment checks or health insurance. maybe I am biased. I just don’t see how extending benefits and keeping non-producing people on the tit is going to help anything? I was doing quite fine until the express roll-out of tyranny that has been going on since ’08. Every year since has been worse. Keep you unemployment benefits, give me freedom to produce and make a honest living and I’ll be more than happy.

            Choo-choo-choo, all abroad the welfare train right to a nice destination. FEMA camp? When a person can’t make a mortgaga payment it means finding a new home if this continues. They will give you a fine home, all you have to do is sign away your rights to the government. But after all the unemployment is suppose to be 7% or 6.8%, why can’t those folks find a job?

            There is so much deception going on right now. If we actually knew the truth of what was going on we all may be shocked. There is a a lot of no sense going on right now. I smell false flag, but that could just be BO and his adminstration.

            I have been kind of preparing myself mentally and spiritually for a black swan that is totally off the wall. I would recommend this to everyone else, to keep it in the back of your mind that something so bizarre that hits the fan that practically none of us are for a little while staring in the headlights coming at us. Still as a prepper/survivalist IF there is something so out of the blue, none of us can lose our wits about us. We must act before the rest of the population does. To me the black swans have taken flight and might be passing overhead in the near future. Something to think about.

              How are people making mortgage payments, healthcare payments, etc. on unemployment? The article mentions this. I thought unemployment amounted to a percentage of what your pre-unemployed pay was? A short-term solution to SQUEEZE by. Knowing that so many people, probably majority, live paycheck to paycheck, how do they pay a mortgage on unemployment? Do they get full pre-unemployed pay? For 24 months? I could go along with helping a person out for a couple of months with unemployment insurance, but when you start talking about long-term, extended unemployment benefits at 100%, well it is just ludicrous. This is part of the reason the productive people can no longer make ends meet. Employers pay into unemployment insurance, worman’s comp, etc. It squeezes out the small businesses and entrepreneurs, leaving corporations like wal-mart and fast food providing the jobs. And we wonder why we have a problem.

                  Back in the 80′s , the company I worked for suddenly went out of business. I signed up for unemployment the next day , then went to visit family for a week in another state. While visiting , I found a job in that other state. I notified unemployment and they sent the unemployment to me in another state for 6 months, I notified them again that I had a job in another state and was told to “Just take the money. it’s less paperwork for us”.. Nice. I was 20 yrs old at the time. It was a windfall for me.

                • Unemployment benefits vary by state.

                  I spent a touch of time in-between jobs earlier this year (I had a job within two weeks of being laid off, and spent two more relaxing a bit. We’d saved our pennies, and my particular technical line of work has a very low unemployment rate, so I was scheduling interviews within mere hours of being told that I was laid-off.)

                  Dunno how other states do it, but here’s how Oregon works: You get a maximum of $425/wk if you make over a certain sum ($50k/yr, I think?), and a percentage if you made less. If you remained unemployed after a certain period of time (I forget how long), then you qualified for all the bennies: EBT, rental assistance, heating/power assistance, and a whole bouquet of income from various sources. Say you’re going back to school, and they almost literally shower you with money. You could make out very, very well if you know who to ask and how to work the system.

                  This brings up a bit of interest… a lot of folks out this way have been busily milking the system. Hell, I doubt there’s a manjack among them who didn’t vote for Obama.

                  Now? They’re discovering to their horror that once their unemployment bennies run out, they’re going to lose a whole lot of other bits, due to the lack of official “unemployed” status. Section 8 housing waiting lists are 10 miles long, so that’s out. I suspect that come spring, there will be a whole bucketload of very angry people in and around Portland… and a few other cities to boot.

                  No choice? This country is being over run by illegal aliens and they are working all of the nation and in particular they are pouring into the deep south. The people of this country can find work, they just don’t want to find work. They consider themselves above manual labor and think that it is more dignified to collect welfare then it is to work in a job that you have to actually get your hands dirty. The chickens are finally coming home to work.

                  apache54: People usually start draining their savings and 401k plans to make up for the unemployment shortfall in order to maintain their ‘lifestyle’ of mortgage, car, and credit card payments. These folks sit at home and pound out hundreds of resumes in the hope of finding ‘suitable’ employment which means something near what they were getting paid before. Most of the (service) jobs done by these folks dried up and vanished like a fart in the wind when our bloated economy deflated in 2008. Unless these same folks have a marketable manual labor skill they are forced to either stay on unemployment as long as possible and hope they can land a job somewhat comparable to their last one or take a much lesser paying service job, or two, and lose their unemployment. If this isn’t an advertisement/headsup for paying off all your debts and having a backup manual skill, then I don’t know what is.

                  From what I understand, unemployment ins comp is based on %50 of your gross earning for the previous 4 quarters. The MAX you can collect varies by state. Mississippi = $235.00 per week (regardless of your previous income), so I would be doing a lot of fishing to keep food on the table. But if I live in Massachusetts, I can collect up to a maximum of $653.00 per week. You can also elect to forego paying income tax on those benefits. I suspect, that if you are the sole breadwinner in your family living in Mississippi, your in deep doo-doo. But if I am collecting the max in Mass and have a 2 income household… I would not be looking for a job flipping burgers.

                When on unemployment you don’t pay tax on it so, for some, especially with a working spouse, who previously were in a high tax bracket, the cash in your pocket from unemployment often amounts to more than you used to take home.

                  You most certainly do pay tax on unemployment insurance benefits , IRS and recipient get a w-2 form like a regular job at the end of the year. Maximum payment as of last week

The Fed will increase rates thereby increasing yields on the 10 year notes. This will decrease the price of bonds which the Fed will try and sell on the open market to unsuspecting foreign investors.

                  They’ve also managed to orchestrate a brilliant marketing campaign, the artificial highs of the stock market which they hope will signal to foreign investors that everything is AOK with the U.S.

                  However, if there are no takers for the Fed owned bonds, i.e. no one believes the mirage, then poof, we’ll begin to see the Bank Of International settlements begin to transfer ownership of the US economy by increasing Special Drawing Rights against our currency.

                  Note, the TPTB is almost totally out of the US Market. They’ve transferred their funds to singapore which acts as a proxy to the Chinese markets.

                Outlaw, spot on. Not to mention we have fewer people working and paying taxes into the system now than we did when the financial crisis of 2008 hit. The chickens are coming home to roost for our economy. 1.3 million people just lost unemployment benefits and may increase to 5 million before 2014 is over with? “Government shutdown” comes up again in Feb.? More programs suffering budget cuts during the year? Sounds like a recipe for MEGA-SHTF to me. braveheart

                  Braveheart: Put on another pot of coffee. You will have lots of time to drink it. The PTB can continue this economic program for quite some time. They do not need the unemployed or 50 million on food stamps to keep the economy afloat.

                  They have labeled these people; “grazers” and “useless eaters”, and “resource sops”. They throw them a few bones and forget about them. They are expendable.

                  In 2014 (at least in the first half) oil will drop in price. Car sales and home sales will continue albeit at a slower pace. Sequester is mitigating debt service and GDP will rise with LNG sales to Europe. Additional taxes flowing from higher rates, elimination of tax breaks, and increased revenue will stabilize the federal balance sheet. It won’t stop the red ink but it will slow the flow.

                  Parts of the economy are doing quite well, including what is left of American manufacturing, and those parts of the economy that are doing well, hide the portion that is not. No collapse from internal forces contrary to Alt Media fear mongering.

                  Unfortunately, your vision is blurred by your lack of understanding of how the economy really works, and your desire for a “collapse”; as so many others also desire because they believe that this would somehow close the gap between the haves and have-nots, with the haves getting their just deserts. It won’t make a tinker’s damn bit of difference even if the market crashes. That happens on a regular basis and the PTB are still here and still in charge.

                  A drop in the stock market, even a precipitous drop like in ’87 would not signal “collapse”.

                  The fly in the ointment is a First Strike by Israel upon Iran. I believe this is likely in late spring or summer. Wisely, O’bumer is now pursuing a Middle East foreign policy that CAN eliminate the participation of the major powers as I have predicted in the past. O’Bummer must be reading my email. War creates chaos. Chaos generates unintended consequences.

                  Keep prepping. :-)

                  First of all – a little clarification.
                  I’ve seen many comments suggesting that government shutdowns are bad for the economy. Those people get back pay for not working, just unplanned vacations. My brother has worked for the government all his life and has never lost a dime.

                  Also, I’m like all of you and have worried about the loss of tax revenue due to not having as many workers. I don’t worry about that at all any more. This golden goose has been dead for 5 years now. As far as I am concerned, just keep printing money. They’re going to do it anyway. This is a controlled take down. There’s no stupidity involved, they know exactly what they are doing. We’re screwed and there is no denying it. Just keep prepping and hold tight to the Lord – it is truly all that we can do anymore.

                  I’ve owned my own business for 27 years (just so you know that I have some direct experience in economics). Want the answer? The real one? Read this!

                Lots of people who get unemployment benefits or welfare are actually working. My 43-year-old daughter is on SSI because she supposedly can’t work (diabetes) but until recently when she lost her job, she was working under the counter dispatching for a cab company. She had been a truck driver but lost her license when she passed out at the wheel due to her diabetes. That doesn’t stop her from working at a job that doesn’t require a driver’s license.

                When I worked for the census bureau, I would often come to a house and the kids would tell me that Mom and Dad are working. Sometimes they would even tell me where their parents worked. But when I would finally get an interview and ask about income, the mother would tell me that she is getting welfare/unemployment and has no husband and that she isn’t working.

                I lost my job in ’10. Got unemployment for 14 months and with it I was able to pay off loans, cancel our phone and TV, etc. We were able to refinance our mortgage to a smaller monthly payment and now live in the dark at night to save on the electric and have cut back on running the furnace to save on the gas. We are surviving, but it’s rough. In 3 years I’ve only had a hand full of interviews and no offers. My chances will be even smaller as I age. Don’t know where all this is headed, but it’s not looking good. Hang in there everyone.

                  @ Sgt Dale. This area you are talking about is about 120 miles east of the New Madrid. Such a break in the New Madrid would still be severe, but nothing like closer to it. The main issue that I would be terrified of after the New Madrid breaks is the nuclear power plants going into meltdown like Fukushima. I would consider being west of these nuke power stations rather than east as the wind blows. That is IF the New Madrid goes. Otherwise this area is kind of nice, just west of the Smoky mountains.

Too much wiggle room in IF. Besides St. Louis would suffer almost as much depending on the size of the quake. Anyone concerned about preparedness who still lives in either city is a fool unless they are compelled to do so by circumstances beyond their control. But then that begs the questions of what they actually plan to do if it does happen. Tough spot to be in for sure.

              With the boomer generation retiring and many of them already taking early Social Security simply because they cannot find a job there is no way the govt. can afford the expense of Social Security not to mention Mediscare. For the last fifty years they stole every dime that was deposited in peoples Social Security accounts. Had people been able to invest their contributions along with those of their employers in a retirement account paying six or seven percent most would be retiring as millionaires and the govt. would not be getting ready to hose everyone.

              I just got my SSI disability cut by $71, which means that after I pay my rent and phone, I’ll have a whopping $4 left. Luckily, my water, sewer, garbage and electricity is included in the rent.

                  These people you make fun of are in a world of hurt and Like myself would rather be working at our old jobs than taking a 50 percent pay cut. Lucky for me I found work but I know everyone that I worked with were not so lucky 90% are looking for work right now. I dont want to hear about “oh go work 3 jobs” when you get laid off you go work 3 part time jobs and come back and make fun of these people.

                @ 6pack ~ I am so sorry to hear about the SSI disability cut. I just don’t ‘get’ or comprehend the U.S. government anymore. I have been on this site for at least a year. I have learned lots. Most articles and links posted are timely, informative, and explain many
                current events. There are some honest, hard working,
                people out there on disability through no fault of their
                own. They are doing the best they can with what they have. To have ones help/assistance cut by $71 is an
                a despicable hardship to those in need. I know someone who is divorced, on SSI, with 2 teenage daughters.
                I will have to ask her if her disability got cut also.
                I will put you on Silent Unity prayer list, they pray for you for 30 days. 1-800-669-7729. I believe in prayer, and it can’t hurt to place you on the prayer list.

You take the time to be concerned over someone you have never met and call Silent Unity to pray for him. I have seen others on this site also that take their time to help others in need. By the way those at Silent Unity are as about close to God as anyone. They are totally unselfish and giving and only want what is better for their fellow person. They also pary for pets in need. Their philosphy is really to follow in Christ’s footsteps. Anyone in really bad times I would recommend calling them because their peace and talking to them is often most reassuring. God can make anything better for anyone. Prayer is also good energy is a totally f’ed world full of darkness and evil.

                  Thank you Emily and everyone else. People don’t realize that people like me put in job applications even AFTER becoming disabled. Yeah, that’s right, I applied for jobs anyway.

                  Here is what I found out—

                  They won’t hire a 53 year old woman with a work history of only highly physical work, AND a severe spinal injury and surgery.

                  They don’t want to worry about getting sued for further injuring and old injury, I’m too old to train for anything significant and I’ve never worked at jobs of pushing paper or typing, or anything like that.

                  I can’t even be a damned rent-a-cop because I’d have to WALK around the job site.

                  I don’t have the stomach for phone sales because, well, it is mostly lies and manipulation, selling people stuff they really don’t need…at least I still have some integrity and a little pride left.

                  So for me, it is what it is.

                  I’m not done,though. Giving up is not an option. Watch and see.

                  Just make sure should you ever come into some extra money while on SSI that you do not put it in the bank as they check regularly for any extra money. Neighbor did that by mistake and has been paying the SSI he received back for the last two years. It basically wiped out the small insurance payment he received when his dad died that was actually meant for his mother but that he put in his account at his mothers request when she could not deposit it herself. Same goes for gifts from relatives and friends, Cash only.

                  Partly true, old guy. SSI is for people who didn’t work enough in the 10 years preceding the application. I was disabled for several years before I could get the surgery that saved my life. I hadn’t worked ENOUGH, but I had paid into SS since 1977, which was about 30 years worth.

                  You might be right about it being “welfare” if I hadn’t already paid into the SS fund for three decades. So no, I’m not a parasite leeching off of the dole.

                  There are some of us getting disability that we’re responsible and did all the right things that got pushed on to the SSI system. When I was a kid a buddy of mine, a marine drill instructor, was home on leave we went to the old swimming hole and he dove in and snapped his neck on a submerged log leaving him horribly disabled. All my employment history I always bought the max disability insurance both long and short term because of that accident. I then developed a rare form of very progressive arthritis in my late 40s that knocked me onto the SSI rolls. Even the best insurance just pays you until you are forced into the system which took over three years to happen. Then they want all their money back when SS back pays you when you are enrolled. You are forced onto Medicare even if your company covers your health insurance. So don’t think that those who are disabled are happy about it being on the “teat”.

                  Ok Six pack You by your own statement acknowledge you hadn’t paid enough in the Ten preceeding years to qualify for regular Social Security. You state you paid in for thirty years prior. If you take a look at what you paid in during that thirty year period add it all up. I will bet you received every penny back and then some within 5 years of drawing SSI. Now If a real SHTF event comes to pass and you start receiving ZERO what are you gonna do? Now Im gonna try and help you. You Likely wont even try my suggestion. Instead of giving you a fish Im going to try to teach you to fish. Just think about this There are lots of folks doing more with less than you have. Look around and do something different. The problem is folks are brainwashed and conditioned to believing a negative core concept. They are somehow made to believe by the government & others that they are lacking or are a victim and don’t have the ability to provide for their own needs. But that ok because the government will be there to assist you. And assist they will as long a your their puppet and do as they tell you to. Its a defeatist wrong CORE CONCEPT thinking that your success & well being or lack of success & well beingis dependent on other persons things & conditions. If you become Self Reliant and aquire Know How you never have to depend on the time & pleasure of other people things & conditions. Ok you might ask Where and how do I start On my adventure toward being Self reliant. Start by saving 10 cents of every dollar you receive. There is something that you have a talent for use that saved ten percent to invest in yourself via that talent. This is nothing new It actually works. It puts you in a positive advantage in the universal law of cause & effect. Did you ever watch the Show Rich Man -Poor Man? Now a bit of advice for anyone implementing my advice. Don’t tell others what your doing don’t brag don’t even tell the spouse. Telling others don’t accomplish anything. In fact their jealousy and negative actions & thoughts will tend to place road blocks in your path. Myself I have enough Know How and self confidence that I can do well in any given situation or local. It boils down to Know How. Know How is the one prep that cant be robbed and redistributed from you. The question is do your really want to become independent from other people things & conditions? Its up to you. Luck has nothing to do with it. Your own positive actions will make you lucky.

                  Nice pep talk (I think), old guy, but how do you think I survived for the several years between when I was injured and lost my job, and when I got the first SSI payment? I’ll tell you how—I used my know-how and independent thought. I just kept going forward.

                  I’ll make it work this time as well, because I don’t roll over and wait for someone to scratch my belly. I pray you, and people like you never have to go through what I have, but if you did, you’d either be broken by it, or you’d be stronger for it. I’m stronger for it.

                  Even if I end up having to live in a tent somewhere, I WILL SURVIVE IT…because I don’t give up.

            I’m a bit biased myself, I was self-employed for a lot of years. Then after a few too many injuries I ended up on SSI. I also had a a teenage son to finish raising, so I ended up on SNAP as well. I learned to feed me and my son on the food card with plenty left over. They haven’t dropped the amount on the food cards enough to hurt any one. They need to learn to shop smarter.

            The SSI doen’t pay enough to get by on alone, which made it hard and I haven’t been on unemployment since I was a young man, but as I remember it was only supposed to last 26 weeks. It’s not a retirement plan.

            The big issue is the unemployment itself. The fact that there are way more than the 7% that the government claims. If they extend the benefits it will be no different than placing everyone on Welfare.

              SSI or supplemental security disability I think is quite different from regular social security disability. SSI the way I understand it is welfare for those who never worked and paid enough in to qualilify for regular social security. SSI is welfare dole money not worked for. Anyone on the Dole is a taking parasite they shouldn’t expect other making producers to be robbed so that they can maintain a certain lifestyle. If you spent to large a portion on rent & phone. Find a cheaper rent and do without the phone. The tent is a good Idea you can eat the cats and save on buying cat food. Also with regards to Unemployment Comp. It is paid for by a Tax on the employers payroll. Not one penny was ever deducted from any persons paycheck to pay for Unemployment comp. Now yes you are required to report Unemployment as income on your tax return. However Most since their drawing the Unemployment welfare income is so low

The fact is you by your own admission worked off the clock for years and never reported and paid tax on that income. No two ways about it your a tax cheat and are a parasite. When that govt check quits arriving what are you gonna do then? roll in the mud to survive. I came up from nothing. during the jimmy carter years I worked for minium wage running a 90 pound jackhammer carving out bridge footings from solid rock in the bottom of a leaky coffer dam in the winter. took the job so I could make my land payments and feed my family. I was qualified to draw unemployment and never considered it. I went to work at the only available job. And We still saved 10%. Shure Ive got plenty now. However Ive earned every penny and never cheated another person or the government to get it. Living frugally saving 10% investing and being self reliant has paid off very well. I resent the non producing parasites who think I have more than my fair share.

          • I am in the same situation, Outlaw, having been self-employed for about 95% of my adult life.

            We were rolling along fine until about ’08, when things started going south, and now they’ve plunged into a valley of very little income, barely scraping by each month. We’re debt-free (except a very small amt left on mtg), but partially living off our preps already (thank God we have them), and have cut back all expenses to bare bones.

            I see this as the slow roll-out of collapse; it sure feels like it to us.

              I gotta agree with you. Ive never had health care, unemployment comp or welfare ect. Those entitlement I deserve my fair share mentallity folks lamenting that they are not receiving enough of the so called FREE government money now. Just What are they going to do if a real SHTF event happens? I resent my hard earned cash having to unfairly compete with the parasite,s freebees in the market. Myself I am doing very well. My truck driving job petered out. I never even considered trying to draw unemployment. So I went into the scrap business and really started growing all our own food in earnest. My german kin folk would never sell anything that the Jew scrap men would buy. For 50+ years everything not used was thrown in gullies or parked in fence rows. The Chinese started buying and the prices soared. I talked the old folks into letting me haul it off for 50%. with just a PK and Trailer I hauled enough in 6 months off to Pay cash for a 690 john deere trackhoe with a thumb attachment. Im about finished cleaning up all the available scrap . I made $38000 in profit this year. and we can live comfortably on a $100 per week. But we work a growing our own food cutting our own wood ect. Anyway Im now 63 and haven’t even bothered to sign up for Social security. Im thinking of applying for the Social Security Ponzi check in January ?

                  Smokey that’s a valid question.Yes indeed I will pay 15.3% social security tax on that $38000 plus state & federal income tax. and also the tax on the sale of my cattle and equiptment that I sold this year. Im wanting to pay as much as I can this year so as to boost my social security check. I fully intend to sign up on the social security ponzi scheme in a few days. I couldn’t get away with not reporting the income anyway. In order to sell scrap in large amounts like I have you gotta show Id & social security card and give a thumb print. everything is entered into a compueter and they send you a W4 form to file with your taxes. Also small loads of scrap are paid with cash. However big loads like mine that are more than $500.00 are paid by check. And I run all the checks through my bank account. A tax cheat im not. Im more afraid of the IRS than a bad guy with a gun.

                No relatives never left me nothing. They simply hated jews and for 50 years hoarded anything the jew junk man would buy. when I was driving truck we started hauling loads of scrap to the Chinese owned steel mills. I learned the Chinese where furnishing money to set up scrap buyers to buy for them directly. That way the chinese could bypass the jew brokers and their commissions. I persuaded my kin folks to let me sell it to the Chinese. I paid my kin 50% for the scrap and I paid all the expences of processing and hauling. After word got out how much their cut was others not my kin let me haul theirs too. Even the Banker had me haul off some. The bank repossed a trailer park. there where several derelict mobil homes on the land. I went and cleaned it up. took off the aluminum siding and sold that. sold all the old appliances. The vollentier fire dept came and burned the remainder for fire training exercises. the remaining metal roofing and steel frames and some copper wiring where recycled also. I buried what little debris remained. The bank was then able to sell the place. nobody left or gave me anything I earned every cent.

          Kulafarmer, I’ve said it before, perception is reality. The Democrats brand is being hurt by Obamacare, a crappy economy, piss poor quality jobs and all the lies. The press is too invested in the liberal/progressive movement and they’re in bed with the DNC. If the truth was to be known then the Dems would get their clocks cleaned in the 2014 elections. The press will do all they can to change the perception of reality in order to protect themselves, the Dems and Obama. The dumb ass Republicans will do all they can to accommodate the Dems with their effort to transform the USA. The Dems are going to club the Repubs over the head with the termination of the unemployment bennies. The press is going to be promoting the Dems by giving them an unchallenged forum in which to blame the Repubs.

          I can see why so many believe that the Dems and Repubs are one in the same with the way that the Repubs keep on giving the Dems all they want and need. No one can be that incompetent by accident.

          I see politics as a sport with owners, managers, coaches, players, plays, uniforms,
          cheerleaders, color commentators, fans and hotdogs. The play that team DNC is executing is obvious.

              These asshats,and I’m being way over polite right now, are living the life of noblemen compared to the rest of us..

              Congress,senate,sjc, executive branch and all the agencies and bureaucrats don’t give a flying fuck about any of us.
              Ob just gave them a handsome raise this last week.

              This denial of benefits,just collapsed the lives of 1.3 million more people..period.

              I know of so many who were on top of the game and now, in their late 50′s and early 60′s, are screwed in every which way..
              “The plan” has been in play for decades…and is now in full operational mode..

              There are no friggin jobs out there except entry level service jobs @ minimum wage…malls, shopping centers,small outlets are vacant everywhere here in Mass.
              Commercial properties are hemorrhaging..

              Yeah there are pockets of prosperity everywhere as well but overall,,the entire economy is in free fall!

              Many here are in good situations,many of us are not.
              We believed in the American dream all of our lives and then woke up a bit too late after the damage and ability to recoup was gone..

              Do not demonize everyone on assistance or unemployment..not everyone is a lout and lazy asses.

              I know of so many indi contractors out here who can not compete with the illegals operating under the radar and the punitive state/federal regs imposed upon them…

              This continuation of a degrading economy will just further erode, and force many into the black markets who once did the right thing, and now realize how it is all a farce!

              Just wait til all the public sectors pensions and retirement vanish into thin air soon…

The media outlets (inc. Fox) have already picked their candidates. Fat pig Christie is their man on the Fox side. Not voting this time around. Last time they picked Romney and that little prick Ryan. Worked out great. Our elections are bullshit. We are led around by the media all day and if that doesn’t work, they will just “fix” the voting booths. What a damn mess.

        Great post, as always, Mac!

        For decades, all I ever saw in my hometown, was maybe one homeless person per year. But for the last couple years, they’ve been all over the place! I’ve seen heartbreaking scenes of homeless veterans, with war injuries. I saw on an old woman, looking through the trash by a restaurant, sipping from a used bottle. I’ve seen car loads of people sitting in the shade out back, behind grocery stores– obviously homeless, I saw a young girl lying in her car real late at night, with the door open because of the heat, etc., etc. I can’t imagine how it will be with around 1 1/2 million more in same position!

      Vladimir Putin’s SHORTEST SPEECH

      This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin…. How scary is that?

      On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia :

      “In Russia live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia , to work and eat in Russia , should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia , and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We had better learn from the suicides of America , England , Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia . The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.

      The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

      It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our President Barack Hussein Obama…….. but here it is!!!!

        • What? in MN says:

          I didn’t read the speech that way, eppe. What I read was Putin pointing out that we as a nation are bending over backwards to try and accomidate other cultures, in this case, immigrants from Muslim nations. The main thrust of what I think the article is about is “look what multi-culturalism and political correctness will get you.” Most of these immigrants that have come to this country over the last, say 20-30 years seem to be of the opinion that the USA should bend over backwards to accomidate their beliefs. The problem with that is that these same people never enter and become part of American culture, or the “Melting Pot,” but instead stay in their own little corner of the world that they have been led to believe they deserve, even in a new country. This leads to tension with native-born Americans and eventual distrust. When you move to a new country and are of the attitude that the native population should learn to speak your language and learn your customs so as not to offend you, you are a moron to expect to be accepted into the new society. Unfortunately, there are a number of native-born people in this country who are more than willing to throw common sense under the proverbial bus to be thought of as intelligent and open-minded. With people like at running the show in the countries that Putin mentioned, like him or not, he has a very good point.

He was especially right about the US, UK, France, Holland, etc. committing ‘cultural suicide’, which should come to an end. We need to go back to taking care of the US national interest, white people’s interest first. we shouldn’t be giving any minority groups any special treatment, period.

              Easy Cures for Jewish-Engineered White Guilt

              – Meditate on these 22 facts about slavery — and love your people —

              1. Prior to the creation of Antebellum (Southern) Slavery in the U.S., Whites were enslaved by African Muslims for 10 centuries. It was such a common tragedy and constant threat during 10 centuries in Europe that today central Europeans are called “Slavs.” White Europeans lived in constant fear of invasion, capture, and enslavement by African Muslims.

              2. White slaves were not allowed to have families, as blacks were in America. They were primarily used as sex slaves and as captive soldiers forced to fight wars.

              3. Slave buying, transporting, and selling in America was dominated by Jews, not White Gentiles. Some estimates attribute 95 percent of the business to Jews. (See more below.)

              4. Slavery of blacks in America was a long time ago, was originally outlawed by the White states, and all-in-all took place within 2 centuries rather than 10.

              5. Slavery was limited to the the southern states. Northern Whites had no involvement with slavery and neither did most Southern whites.

              6. In the south only 4 percent of Southern “whites” owned slaves, and a great many were Jews who distinguish themselves from White Gentiles.

              7. The South was not the economic power that built America, but rather, the industrial North, which was manned and staffed almost entirely by Whites.

              8. Slavery in the South was a rich man’s game. The vast majority of Southern whites did not own slaves and slavery worked against their prosperity.

              9. Slavery originated in Africa. Every slave was sold to a westerner by a black slave owner.

              10. White involvement with slavery (in the South) was very short in historical time, no bigger than a knot tied in a string that is stretched across a room.

              11. Slavery, practiced from the dawn of recorded history in Africa, is still common in Africa today. In fact, White nations have problems with African immigrants bringing slaves to their countries (such as the UK) and keeping them in captivity.

              3b. American Southern slavery was primarily created and run not by White Gentiles but by Jews who have nothing in their religion prohibiting slavery of non-Jews, and whose religion actually advocates the enslavement of non-Jews. This is documented in the Jews’ own histories and found in the book “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks & Jews”.

              12 The original White settlers of the American colonies had slavery outlawed in all colonies. It was against white Christian ideals. But Jews got the laws changed so they could profit from slavery. Then Jews created the world center of slavery in Providence, Rhode Island, which was primarily a Jewish settlement.

              13. All slaves brought to America were purchased from black slave owners in Africa, usually chieftains who enslaved members of enemy tribes. Originally it likely took the form of a novelty and rescue in which seafaring Whites found out they could acquire a grateful deckhand for some rum or trinkets, and save him from a short and brutal life under the African chieftain.

              14. If an African slave survived the voyage he was generally getting an upgrade compared to life as a slave in Africa. By contrast to the short, brutal life he was guaranteed in Africa, he would live to old age and have descendants (which filled America today). A slave owed by a rival African chieftain could expect to be worked to death, tortured for entertainment, or even eaten. In one a black chieftain directed hundreds of his slaves to jump off a cliff at his command, to their sure deaths, simply to impress a white visitor. By contrast a slave in the American South was considered highly valuable — more than a horse or a car today — and there were laws against harming or stealing them, and a white who did so could be punished by hanging. Blacks were only hung for real crimes such as rape or murder, and White criminals were also hung.

              15. The first person in America to own another human being, for life, as a slave was a Black African named Anthony Johnson who sued for lifetime ownership of another African. By 1699, the number of blacks freed by whites prompted fears of a “Negro insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Many blacks sold themselves to white masters so they would not have to go to Africa. However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States. By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone. Whites still cannot manage to end slavery in Africa today.

              16. Whites outlawed slavery (starting with the British) and worked to eradicate it worldwide.

              17. Slavery still persists in Africa today.

              18. Jews spend a great deal of energy guilting whites about slavery while keeping quiet a out their central role in American slavery. Steven Spielberg makes movies that feature “White Christian” slavers instead of Jews.

              19. Jews don’t regard themselves as “white” and they are the primary voices fomenting and transmitting “white guilt.” People like Noel Ignatiev and Tim Wise who openly advocates for the genocide of Whites are almost always Jewish or part Jewish.These are the voices that instill white guilt into noble-hearted whites by emphasizing long-past situations, ignoring the Jewish role, and ignoring Whites’ own longer subjection to slavery throughout Europe, and the fact that Whites are a charitable and philanthropic people who are constantly trying to help, lift up, and protect other peoples. The anti-white “Jewish Voice” rings out loudly through Jewish-owned media and wherever Jews are in large concentrations such as universities. If you have “white guilt” it’s because Jews wanted you to feel that way.

              20. The first genocide in recorded history was done by Jews.

              21. The holocaust perpetrated on the people of Russia by Jews is much larger than the millions even claimed by Jews in Germany. (Which is a false claim.)

          I don’t know whether of not Putin made that speech, but here are some words and actions that have been correctly attributed to him:

          “Some political forces use Islam, the radical currents within it … to weaken our state and create conflicts on Russian soil that can be managed from abroad”
          http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/10/22/us-russia-putin-islam-idUSBRE99L0NJ20131022

          Moscow police detained 300 Muslims after President Vladimir Putin ordered a crackdown on radical Islamists ahead of next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi.

        Putin; imho; is 1000 times the leader O’Bummer is. And to tell you the truth; Putin is more of an American than O’Bummer will ever THINK himself to be. Imagine; a National Leader that accually has his country’s best interest at heart. A stark contrast to the feral traitors the United States has in its political parties.

          Educate yourself on this man Putin. To admire him in comparison to Obama feels to me too much like admiring Stalin for not being Hitler. He’s making moves that really look better by comparison on the world stage, but what he believes, what he does within Russia to ethnic Russians who aren’t in lockstep with him should give you pause from embracing him too firmly. The world is ripe for the arrival of the Antichrist; I am leery of anyone who looks good.

          The bombings yesterday and today are a test. We’ll begin to see what Putin is made of if they continue.

          Check out Honest Abe’s(Lincoln aka usa prez Black Love so much!)…

          From Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, Sept. 1862:

          “I have urged the colonization of the Negroes, (back to Africa), and I shall continue.
          My Emancipation Proclamation was linked with this plan (of colonization).
          There is no room for two distinct races of White men in America,
          much less for two distinct races of Whites and Blacks. . . .
          I can think of no greater calamity than the assimilation of the negro into our social and political life as our equal . . .
          Within twenty years we can peacefully colonize the Negro . . .
          under conditions in which he can rise to the full measure of manhood.
          This he can never do here. We can never attain the ideal union our fathers dreamed,
          with millions of an alien, inferior race among us,
          whose assimilation is neither possible nor desirable.”

          At Least Abe got That Part Correct eh!…Too bad he wasn’t able to Complete the Mission no.

            Actually some did return to their homeland and founded a country on the Atlantic Coast of Africa. Known as LIBERIA . We should stop arguing about things from the past we can not change and instead prepare for an uncertain future that we can influence. What is done is done nothing can change it , it’s up to us to not let it happen again.

            We stand on the shores of a New Year with all it’s unknowns and possibilities let’s reflect on that for a while and continue what we are doing to prepare for an uncertain future with all its disappointments and joys.

              Night Breaker,
              As someone else has written here, “get a colonoscopy” and “take care of your teeth”. I’ve done that. To that I might add that preppers should take care of any surgery that is needful as soon as possible. Tonsillectomy, colonic re-section, cholecystectomy, laparoscopy for endometriosis, knee surgery like lateral retinacular release, and plantar fascia release are some you might want to think about while you still have health insurance.

              My doctor is a sports medicine specialist, not a surgeon, but he said he’s considering early retirement and he said a lot of other doctors are, too. The Association of American Medical Colleges states that the USA is facing a shortage of over 91,500 doctors by 2020.

              It’s not going to be easy living in the US in the coming years, even if there is no nuclear war and no Solar kill-shot EMP.

              NIGHT BREAKER: Yes what you say on the future etc. BUT so many folks has been deluded and hollywood and msm brainwashed of True Historic events and what events Really happened and How and by Whom etc, that we have no choice but to try and awaken folks to those facts and truths….otherwise the future will again Repeat past mistakes due to a false knowledge of what truely transpired.

              ESPECIALLY on issues related to WWI and Mainly to WWII issues…And unless folks who do their homework and Learn these facts and Keep demanding for all them Liars like lies of “Six million jews” etc when now even the curator of the Main holyHOAX Museum IN Israel has been forced to Admit that their six million number as well as Aushwitz numbers and many lies related to it all, were Lies! Demand they admit they Lie and Distort historic events to benift Their tribe etc….Unless folks remain and refuse to just shut up…Then the future will be worse yet.

              The Main reason for folks argueing is due to They refuse to research all the Fables and holywood lies like swindlers list by spielberg.

              OR READ some of the 1912 Book wrote In England BY the Top Kommie honcho party Head IN England then, 1912, whos name was “ISREAL COHEN” a jewish man and admited Kommie leader.

              His Book title was something like(from few yrs ago memory) “The(or OUR?) RACIAL PLAN FOR WHITE AMERICA”!

              Inside that komnie jewish party leaders book he states that they have a jewish/kommie Plan to Force americans, whites, to change Immigration laws and Stop more whites from comming into usa, and instead replace whiteys with Blacks and browns mainly.

              He also said the method used will be to get Kommie party usa, aka cpusa, Jewish members to get elected to High offices in Fed govnt, to make such changes.

              That was written as a Jewish Communist PLan to devestate white ameircans Thru immigration policy Changes…

              And in 1965 after 2+ yrs of non stop rallying for such changes, another leftist Kommie DEM from New York, US Senator JACOB JAVITS(jewish/and Kommie-dem party) got His 1965 fed immigration laws changes Passed.

              Now due to so many folks, Know NOT true factual past History, such as who did communisim, who invented it, used it to mass murder a couple hundred Million white christians of a dozen nations across eastern europe, we SEE today 2013 that indeed kommie dem jew sen javits immigrant reforms of 1965 has fully RUINED a once white run Prosperous, Safe, well tuned, well run America into a cess pool that now has more snake-jew-kommies of BOTH political partys, in full control of usa you cant even begin to count them there is so many.

              Mainly because Our Parents (the greatest gen group) either Blindly trusted and believed the vast Lies they were told by MSM and fed govnt about communists etc, or they were mostly Dems and rejected stuff like Sen McCarthys expose’s and hearings on commie infiltrations, due again to Blind Faith trust in their dem party leaders and MSM plus Hollywood fakery propaganda movies etc.

              Well today we see their kids aka Boomers of our age group, Many are falling in Lock step falsehood beliefs like parents fell for. Whos going to Awaken them if not some of Us folks?

              And no amounts of denials or crys or whiney complaints from said kommie bolshevik jews or there number One Enabler group of, jewdeo christian zionists fools, is going to change those truths nor Fix the problems for a better future.

              If we take Your advice and hush up or shut up on Past historic events etc?….Good luck in ANY Future let alone any thats remotely better than current times are.

              The question we all should be demanding answers to is “Why are today so Many remaining in total Darkness when so many outlets and individuals are provideing the necessary websites etc to Learn such factual Truths so we Can have a better future free of oppression and deciet, and swindles galore by nefarious scamming khazar kommie frauds?

              Even the bible says God will cause the truth to become known, all spoken of or plotted in Darkness and Secret IS going to Be Made Known and Shouted from the Rooftops…in the end times days era…So one can say that ‘some” of us are doing His work Via the Internet websites. But its individuals who Must begin to research these issues and RE think the vast Lies they were all taught and now falsely believe. Sooner or later they will no longer have Any excuses left to postpone learning of these facts and truths..Granted, many will Remain delusional Lib types and simply deny it all as we see some here doing.

              They are the ones who deny or call names yet Never provied any counter proofs to vaidate what they claim.

              Christ also wrote of Them types too.SEE: JOHN 8:44 and Revelation 2:9—and 3:9 for Starters as to the true Culprits…He also said “They are going to Hate You for telling Truths just as They so Hated me”…The vile hate mongers and name callers Here who so twist all we post and label us as nazis or haters again Prove Christ was correct 100% what He stated 2000 yrs ago what will occure.

              Just Wait till they find out what else Christ says about their bunch! That too is going to come true one day…Maybe Soon if we are lucky eh!

                Yes, Them (anti-semitic)Guys,

                It is YOU that does not want the truth to get out. I have no idea if you belong to a standard hate group, such as the Aryan Brotherhood, the Nation of Islam, etc., or if you are just a Garden Variety Anti-semite, but you are employing the oldest tricks in the book to spread your hatred of Jews.

                ANTI-SEMITIC CANARDS

                According to the dictionary, a canard is: An unfounded or false, deliberately misleading story, belief or rumor.

                You are taking advantage of the fact that most people don’t know history very well, and are ready to believe the agitprop you spew here on a regular basis. Just because you post links to websites doesn’t make that information true. Anyone can create a website and post the most vile of things. Twisting history to suit your narrative based on hate is not relating any truth at all, but your own personal biases and hatred.

                Any one wishing to see for themselves what a list of antisemitic canards looks like can view it at Wikipedia. I would like to provide the link, but much of what I post ends up in moderation, and I think a link would make that moderation last longer.

                If anyone does end up looking at the list, then you will see that these are the “topics” that frequently appear in Them Guys (and his cohorts in hate) posts.

Your social standards are incompatible with what we consider the norm in the U.S.. They are incompatible with the standards that have made America a very powerful country.
        If you want to live like they live in Mexico then go to Mexico. Don’t flee across the border from Mexico to the US and tell us we have to live like you. I’m seeing how they live in Mexico. I don’t want any part of that. This country, supposedly the top country in the world, was founded on certain principals that have served to make this small country a world power. The principals that govern our friends across the border, well their countries aren’t fairing so well. So, we should cater to their needs and use their principals? Once again, it makes perfect sense. Like I said before, If you want to live like they live in Mexico, guess what, they have an entire country dedicated to living like they live in Mexico. It’s called Mexico. When in Rome do as the Romans do. When in America do as the Americans do.

        I’m gonna book a flight to Japan. Hire out one of those Japanese coyote’s to sneak me into China. Then I’m gonna plop myself down right in the middle of Bejing. I’ll demand they translate all of their literature to English so I can read it. I’ll demand that they put me on their public assistance programs because I’m being beaten down by the yellow man. Oh and by the way they have to feed and educate my children also. Let’s see how far I get.”

        The Communist Party is no longer in charge in Russia.

        He is more of a crony capitalist than a communist.

        He is more like Shrub than Mao. They are both ex intelligence heads.

        Putin is more of a nationalist than anything…perhaps those in DC could take a few pointers.

        He may have made a mistake going against Bandar “Bush” as the recent bombings show. He was warned. I wonder if the Saudis have poked the Bear too hard? Time will tell.

          BEST: Description Of Hobammy I ever yet Read!

          What Obama Is

          by Jack Wheeler

          “The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

          “He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

          “What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is ‘African-American,’ the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners.

          “Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it. Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners.

          “Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah. It’s something Hillary doesn’t understand – how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her.

          “Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

          “Thus Obama has become the white liberals’ Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it.

          “The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

          “Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior. He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.”

              Americunt,
              The overwhelming majority of Americans ARE religious. We are still largely Christian, but there are Buddhists, Moslems, Hindus, and even Satan worshippers here, for God’s sake.

              To us religious people, your hysterical rant against religion is strange and disorienting. Who among us is looking for sympathy from the likes of you, anyway? Why would anybody care if he alienated you? Why in the world are you so hostile to religion? Were you sexually abused by your grandfather, or did your playmates just subject you to a ritual ass-kicking gauntlet every day after school when you were little?

              As for myself, I don’t invite friends into my inner circle who are non-Christian because they tend to be frustrated knots of rage like yourself, though I get along just fine with cultists, witches, and atheists in casual social settings like shit-kicking contests or literary criticism seminars.

      My husband and I moved across the state on short notice because of family things in April of 2012 with neither of us having a job lined up. Just a small bit of savings and our preps of food. We did not get any government hand-outs or food bank help. We took crap jobs and a lot of them until June of that year when we both landed back in our career fields. It’s coming up on 2 years now since that happened. We are both making better money, and our preps are further ahead now than when this happened. During this time we also nursed his mom through her final days of cancer. We also took care totally the funeral costs ourselves.

      So I have zero sympathy or empathy for those that take no responsibility for themselves or their families. At some point the welfare to lazy folks has to end.

        I haven’t been in the work force for close to ten years. But I believe I could go out Monday morning and find a job of some kind before the day was out. I have always been able to find a job when I needed to. And it’s always been better than the last job.

        There are plenty of jobs, but I keep hearing people saying “I wouldn’t work for that little money.” There are also a good number of higher paying jobs, but they can’t get any qualified applicants. My brother starts in one of those jobs in January. The main qualifications are electronic knowledge, math skills, and soldering skills. The company is trying to expand, but can’t find people who know how to do anything. A good example is my nephew, who couldn’t figure out how to measure a wall with a yard stick. The stupidity in the general public is astounding.

        I always tell young people that if they can’t find a job, then they should make one. Take what they know and love and turn it into a career. I made my own job, and I’ve been at if for almost ten years. I love doing research, and I just sit at the computer, do research, send in invoices and progress reports, and a rich guy sends me a check each week. I am currently writing a book for him. When he no longer wants my services, I hope to work for his friends.

          With inflation, it does make it very hard to work for the pay companies are offering. I am self-employed. I struggle. I have been considering a full-time job for a few years and actively look daily. I make more struggling self-employed than any job I have yet to find. I will say though, that jobs are easy to find. I have been offered every one I have applied for. However I have had to decline after discussing compensation, add that to the ridiculous hoops to jump through, crappy hours, and just plain out BS and it is a no brainer. I will continue to struggle and be free.

            I never said it would be a good job, or one you liked or that it wouldn’t require a companion second job, just that if you tried you could get a job.

            Outlaw, I agree there are way too many hoops involved. But a good portion of the folks getting kicked off overly generous unemployment never even got off the couch to find the hoops.

            I have a good job, and I tried to help a girl I know get on with my company. She’s struggling to keep her lights on most months and chasing bills. The company offered her double what she makes now. If she had taken the job she would have been making 19 an hour. She decided she was too good to work at a municipal water treatment plant. She had every excuse under the sun why she didn’t take the job. What it boiled down to was lazy and an over inflated sense of entitlement that makes her believe she shouldn’t get dirty to make a living.

            She had her momma call me today to see if she could borrow some money for food. I told her no. I feel bad for her sons, but I tried to help and really went out of my way to get her that position and pay offer. You don’t want to help yourself, then there isn’t anything more I can or will do for you. You think you are too good to work at a sewage treatment plant, then my money earned at the same sewage treatment plant isn’t good enough for you either.

            I work and do so hard for my money, and get dirty. I have to shower before leaving work most days in the locker room before coming home. So yeah, it’s not fun. But the jobs are there if you become willing.

            From what I have seen too few are willing.

        Waterislife, I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your mother-in-law. Breast cancer took my mother from me on Jan. 29, 2009, shortly after the monkey came into the White House, so I do know the feeling. I also agree with you totally about the welfare crowd. I always managed to find work when I was a young man and I’m 56 now. Back in those days, if you didn’t go to work, you didn’t eat and that’s the way it was. No unemployment, no welfare, no food stamps, no nothing back then. You either pulled yourself up by your own bootstraps or you starved to death. there will supposedly be more budget cuts to certain programs in the new year. Things are definitely getting worse, slowly but surely. braveheart

      • You are right, waterislife that you can find a job if you really want to work. The problem is that a large percentage of the new jobs are minimum wage 30 hr a week jobs. Unemployment benefits can last up to 2 years for some folks and the amount is 60% of what you made the last 26 weeks you worked full time. So if a person made 500 a wk on his old job and draws unemployment, he can get 300 a week for two years with no taxes or deducts. He also becomes eligible for a host of other benefits. If he goes to work in a minimum wage job he gets 290 a wk before taxes on a 40 hr. week. Plus he has to pay for transportation to get to/from work. Do you see the problem here? The government has made it a whole lot better to just sit on your butt and not work than to go find a job. And when the two years is up they just keep extending it until someday soon no one will ever go back to work.

          Buy a foreclosed house cash with cheap taxes
          Rent out rooms too two people .

        waterislife,

        That’s not entirely true, at least not in my state (MA). I have a job ( for now), but it’s one I loathe. I have been looking for a new job since the day I was hired. But there are NO jobs. Oh, sure, you can see listings on Craigslist, but there are very few compared to when I got this job ( and at that time, I thought the pickings were slim), but the vast majority of them are put up by staffing agencies, and most of the jobs they post are fake (just so they can increase their resume pool).

        I applied for almost 40 jobs one day, and the only response I got was from two staffing agencies I didn’t even mean to contact (because their ads didn’t say they were agencies… I’m trying to avoid them because they’re useless these days).

          I never said it was easy. For me and my husband during our unemployed state from our career field, we had 7 jobs between the 2 of us. While taking care of his mom, and our 2 kids.

          Was it easy? No. Hell no it wasn’t easy.

          Job #1 for me was M-Sat 10am until 2pm I worked a pizza place as a dishwasher.

          Job #2 was 3pm M, Tue, Wed and Thur until 930pm as a cashier in another fast food joint.

          Job #3 was Fri, Sat nights as a bartender in a biker bar.

          Job #4 was I did alterations and sewing jobs for yet more money.

          Hubby’s jobs were contract temp work for IT depts. M-Thur nights he was a DJ at a strip club. Yeah that was an interesting one for a bit. And his 3rd job was cleaning office buildings on Sat and Sun.

          You just have to be willing to do whatever you can lay hands on to do.

          I went to college, served in the military and at 36 was working a bar and 2 fast food joints. Humbling, oh yeah. Did I get to keep my pride and show my kids you can make it on your own, yes. Would I do it again to avoid being on welfare. Yes.

          Point is think outside the normal and be willing to do whatever it takes. You don’t have to like it, you just have to live through it to get back to the other side and keep trying. With God all things are possible if you are willing to help yourself.

      “The government has no choice but to keep pumping out money and emergency assistance, whether that be to people who have lost their jobs or the banks that provide the lending. The second (literally) that they pull back on the monetary, financial and economic intervention we will see a catastrophe that few can imagine.

      It’s coming.”

      Yes, “it” is coming, what ever “it” is. But you’re wrong, Mac. The government DOES have a choice. It can choose to stop the insanity and overspending now. it can choose to make the cuts now. But it won’t. There have been numerous times on this site when it has been pointed out that Congress needs to stop “kicking the can down the road”, bite the bullet and take steps to stop the runaway spending. Clearly that is not the message of this article. Instead we are hearing the whining of OMG benefits have been stopped and now there will be problems, and even more problems by the end of the year. So? So? Sooner or later the SHTF will happen. When it does there may be a major reset with no benefits. I say let the can alone. Let the charade stop. Let us get our fiscal house in order. Let the reset happen now (as it should have been allowed to in 2008) and then we can get back to an economy not built on debt, and an economy not built on redistribution of wealth. An economy not built on robbing Peter to pay Paul.

          Everytime I read of “Let it fall or crash so we can begin the…RE-SET”..I cannot help but wonder. What do these folks not yet get?…Pay ATTEN! There is not going to be a re set, that only exists in FICTION Novels like many advertized Here you can buy. Yes It sells lots of Fiction story books. But whats going on Now today and HAS been ongoing for at least the past 100 yrs in usa, and 250-300 yrs in Europe Prior to being implemented in usa, is all Planned to destroy america BY design.

          Not yet sure who is their Main Target? heres a huge HINT! Back in 1950 world population of the White Race folk was at least 28% total world POP…Today 2013 it is Down to at best 8% total white world population. Think Thats not By design?

          In over 20 years of reading, aprox 35,000 hrs reading, all I could find to read even remotely conected to their grand scheme Plans to destroy the Middle Class, especially the White part, which is a vast Majority of said middle class folk.

          I have NEVER yet seen nor read anywheres in any plans by over a couple hundred writers, and original Past and Present Perpetrators of said planed by design plans, where any has ever stated anything that even resembles what most calls a “RE-Set”….All I ever did find was their Planned NWO. Now I rekon some folk will call a NWO a type of reset, and yes it surey will be.

          But it is obviously Not the type RE set promoted in those many fictional story books about economic collapse, riots, wars, civil war, EMP, Jackboots, etc…Where whats promoted is a real and swell Reset or chance of it.

          IMHO the Only true good reset is going to occure only After Christ Returns and takes over all reigns of Power and Control. And regardless of What or How His reset plans consist of…He Never left behind any Blueprints for any of us to use while awaiting His return.

          Reset sounds all wondefull..but it is a Flase Utopian dream…At this point all we can really do is keep trying Daily and weekly to survive whatever bad stuff may happen.

          I do not mean to sound negative, just to sound realistic is all. I aint so certain such fantasy fiction books or movies where its all gonna end ok if we keep at it till a reset can happen, are so good for folks mentality. Perhaps such materials present too false of a dream that flys in the face of actual pre planned destruction occureing By design, weather You believe so or not.

          Most folks refuse to consider any true real design plans, or think that scenario too difficult or absurd…Go spend as much time reading more realistic historic and documented proven factual stuff…And then you too will re think any re sets.

          Just decide that no Matter who is discussed as the main major perps or operators and grand designers etc, You are going to study it anyways. Even if anyone else calls you vile names or whatever…Just Blow em off, and Keep reading and once you arrive at the whats-whos-whys etc…You too shall say “get over it as theres NO reset gonna occure at least not without Divine Intervention.

            Much as I hate reality, I think you are right. What we see as a crash and possible opportunity for rebuilding, I believe the long-term planners of world control (by whatever name you think of them) see as simply one more step in a long series of steps. And I suspect there are a good many steps left in their plan beyond what we consider the end game. There will be active resistance to any rebuilding in the direction of a free society.
            Maybe, if enough of us are really prepared, we can come out of it with some combination of the U.S. Constitution combined with the Swiss Constitution- keep major power from concentrating in the hands of the central servants.

Now add healthcare, entitlements getting cut, unemployment drying up, and the start of run away inflation and you got a wild 2014 brewing. The 10 year treasury bond interest just went over 3% and I remember being told start watching at 3 and panicking at 4%. Folks what do we do?

              Outlaw, when the interest rates for T bills start rising the US must pay more interest. It’s like having a variable rate mortgage. When the interest is low, the payments are reasonable. But when the variable rate interest goes up it balloons out of control until you are paying all your money just to service the interest on the debt.

        Faith of the fallen, its important to take good care of your own health–don’t eat any junk food! Eat lots fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic. Basically, if we break the rules of good health, we have to pay reap the negative consequences. Is there a food Co-op in your neighborhood? they often have free magazines on good nutrition– study nutrition. Different foods are good for different symptoms.

        Drugs are profits for the pockets of corrupt drug industry. Try God’s medicine– it has no negative side-effects. Good luck!

        Faith of the fallen,

        I am sorry to hear you will be losing your health care benefits.

        There are some VA clinics that provide very good care.

        My husband goes to the VA for his healthcare. The paperwork was not hard to fill out. He did not have a long waiting period. He gets good care and they charge a very low rate for doctor visits and antibiotics. We are very fortunate to have some good doctors at the local VA.

        Hope it works out ok.

        Even the PTSD clinic ( I have been still staying in touch) is seeing all request for help within 48 hours. And service plans starting in two weeks.

        I keep hearing all these horror stories. And I have only seen them true concerning health care.. when a vet doesn’t think he should have to ash. Or when the vet didn’t follow up.

        In my past little time in the Va hospital…. the nightmare was getting me into the hospital that the surgeon that did my bacon wrap and he received a little o er 500 grand for 10 hours work. At Va I just updated my living will and off to sleep I went.

          SA,

          Our liberty isn’t a gift from government. It derives from the universal human ability to make choices and act on them. Every human being drawing breath was born to be free. Evil, greed, cowardice and stupidity combine to make millions unfree. But the principle stands.

          So they’re going to “confiscate our means of self defense” and our “forms of money” during turbulent times are they?

          “Listen up, O sheeple. We forbid you to … blah blah blah.” Oh yeah?

          They don’t have the manpower to do that on any large scale even if there are sufficient uniformed tyrant suckups to encourage them to try.

          Do you think there was much of a black market in booze during the Roaring Twenties?
          The black market in various media of exchange during turbulent times will make the control freaks wet their pants.

          I”m not saying that having the backbone to defy the tyrant will be cost free. That red stuff will be spilled.

          Each person, each household, has a threshold of what they will tolerate and what they will not. When the government violence starts, the time will come when it will be resisted with equal force.

          When the uniformed goons start winding up dead, when they kick in the wrong doors … the people who are with the tyrant only for a paycheck will have a decision to make.

          Is their paycheck more important than their wives and kids having a father?

          So let them roll out their confiscation. Timorous souls will bleat, “The law says blah blah blah, so I hafta.”

          People who take their liberty seriously will say “F you, come and take them.”

          I made my decision awhile ago. I suggest you do the same.

      It is all part of the plan to incite chaos/fear with looting, lawlessness,shoplifting,home invasions and very serious violent crimes. The purpose being to eventually install Martial law(suspend Constitution), curfews, travel restrictions. Part of the destruction of the USA plan.

      As many of you know; UN troops will be called in to help restore order. There has been comments that there are not enough troops to efficiently enforce Martial Law and conduct house to house searches for Weapons and patriots.

      I agree with that, but, on the other hand suppose part of the country is inaccessible due to radiation fallout or a major earth change(s) that physically alters the continent’s configuration? I think that sometimes we don’t take that situation into consideration as we look at when SHTF.

      What that have to do with this posting.
      In my opinion, the entire structure is collapsing:
      1)social
      2)economic
      3)religious
      4)earth changes
      as orchestrated in a play. The actors being in place and carrying out their parts. And this is just one of them.

        They will withhold commerce and food to regions that do not comply.

        They’ll use UN troops, foreign mercenaries, dark-ops types etc. to pulverize the non-compliant into submission.

        They’ll commit false-flag operations, launch epidemics, explode dirty bombs, commit acts of terror like 911 etc. as necessary in order to facilitate any excuse required to ratchet-up the police state.

        They’ll outlaw barter, growing your own food, water catchment on your own property, owning unregistered livestock, gun ownership etc. etc. in order to force the people to line-up as ordered….or starve.

            JayJay, the Social Security fund is invested entirely in US debt instruments, there is no money in the fund. Payments that go out each month are made by ‘cashing in’ the notes and monetizing them. There are no accounts with our names on them. All the statements and reports we get each year are so much silly fiscal masturbation, it’s a waste of money even tracking it by individual.

            If they quit tracking it, though, we’d wise up pretty quickly.

            This was done in the 1960′s, thank LBJ for that.

            Not a single trust program, Social Security, Federal Pensions, Railroad pensions, not one of them, has a fund with actual money sitting it anymore. It’s all subsumed into the debt instruments and paid out monthly from the general treasury funds. The accounting is smoke and mirrors, the fund should have X billion dollars in it, so it’s in the black, and until payouts increase above income, it won’t go in the red for years to come. Trouble is, there is no money, black or red, it’s just paid out as fast as it comes in and is kept on the books as an asset.

              So, less than $7,000 a year paid in times 40 years of $110,000 a year, is $280,000 total. Reduce that total for each year you did not make $110,000.

              Most of us get our SS payments back in just a very few years, once we start to draw them.

            The Enid area. Its a city of hard working salt of the earth type people. Lace your boots up piss in the cup and come on down. I bought a cheap RV and stay in it while Im working and go home when I can. I know its not ideal, and Im not making the money I used to, but Im still in there swinging that bat.

              I am not far from the area. Can you tell me what kind of job I might find and what kind of pay to expect? I am all ears and may be game at this point, but as you stated, it is not ideal. I hate the hoops, such as piss in the cup you mention. I once had a girlfriend in El Reno, noticed there was alot of oil work there. Gonna start searching while awaiting your reply.

                There is a fracking outfit in Fairview that is advertising 80K to start and that is with no experience. If you can drive a truck or operate machinery you will have a job in about 2 minutes.

                I was a freight broker in my former life making 150. Now I drive a truck hauling crude oil and make 75 with all benefits paid. Life health dental disability all paid for by the company. Work 5 on 2 off.

                What happened to Americans ?? Sitting around crying in their beer because the government did this or that. They have been corrupt since man walked out a a cave. There is nothing new under the sun, they lie steal and cheat. There is nothing we can do about it.

                Work around them. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and dig in. I dont like the pee in a cup deal either but that is pretty much the norm these days. The El Reno area is smoking hot with jobs.

                You dont have to have a Class A lots of companies hiring hot shot drivers too. Just a one ton with a 40 ft trailer.

I’m an engineer now, worked my way thru school while driving a truck. Still got my CDL just in case. Good info, IF and its a small possible if, I’d have no problem hopping back into rig for that kind of money.

                  It’s called dependency, and the govt has encouraged it. Not only did they encourage it, they created situation that forces many people into leaning on them.

                  Now that they are taking the sugar teat away (as my grandma would say), there is going to be a rude awakening on the way.

                  I do feel horrible for people who are going to really suffer that genuinely are in need though. Winter is here, and people got to stay warm. I’ve seen electric and gas companies shut off heat to elderly people in their 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s when they can’t pay, and each year many die.

                  As I said in another post, the govt has been treating native American indians this way forever. Now they are just doing this to everyone else.

                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LA-S64QY3o

                  And it is of my opinion that my family and friends back on the rez need to get a hold of their bootstraps and start pulling themselves up because dependency upon govt is the worst thing a person can do with their life.

          Agreed. We have two sons in Woodward and they’re doing really well. Two of the companies are getting ready to leave and go to Virginia (?) while the three companies in southern Kansas have already gone. My husband and I are still employed in Ohio, and are going to stay here. There are hundreds of well-paying employment opportunities, particularly in areas the government doesn’t like. North Dakota is booming and while it’s hard to live there, you can make a better than decent living, but it’s hard work.

            I’m in northern Montana. I know of 8 people from our community, who moved to North Dakota to try and make better money and ended up back all within months. It wasn’t just the hard work, but they cannot even keep up with the housing to house everyone. A lot of people are having to live in cars. A lot of them said it was the worst place they ever went to. My husband went out to check on a job there as well and said it was a hell hole and came back to his saw mill job. But yes, I hear that some people are making decent money there. But like all boom towns, it will run out of steam eventually and you’re back to square one. At this point, with everything about to become very unstable with our country, and I believe it’s going to get worse soon, I feel like staying here and getting prepared is the best thing to do.

            Reading up in the news about all the knock out games, the 400 teens that flooded the mall and busted up everything, and the 600 teens that fought in a movie theater parking lot, fighting over shoes, and so much more…. it’s all about to blow up.

      The world is heading for the shoals and it’s not only the USA with a psychopath at the helm either.
      Putin was just telling it as it is and that many want Russia for the Russians. Not change a nation to suit a group of foreigner who shouldn’t have came to Russia if it wasn’t to their liking. Maybe they should have stayed where they were and fought for what they wanted their country to be. Hmmm maybe they succeeded and that’s why they are now in Russia, the USA, Canada, France, the UK and AU. Change it from within by being the loudest moaners and groaners. I guess that’s why they say there isn’t much difference between a Jew and Muslim.

            Try this for Starters: “PC Is driving White America INSANE!” By, Incogman….

            Walter Lippmann, Jew Globalist and one of the founders of the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR), bragged in his books on how they manipulated the general public, who the self-elected elites consider as sheep. The arrogant bastards think being the “chosen ones” gives them the right to brainwash America and have been busy doing just that for decades – no wonder so many Whites are now screwed up in the head!

            Indeed, these filthy Jew Globalists have worked over one hundred years towards the destruction of us White European people in America. No doubt at all. In 1909, wealthy Wall Street Jew, Jacob Schiff, the Rothschild’s man in America, quietly worked to merge the National Association of Colored People (NAACP) with the commie Niagra Movement and blacks led by W.E.B. duBois – right along with various White do-gooders and shabbos goys.
            —————————————————-
            NOTE: Shiff had Help creating the NAACP, from 5-More Kommie Russian Khazar jews…THEN, 8 yrs Later, Jacob Shiff again acting as Rothschild’s Main usa-agent/banksterman, Gave $20-Million in Pure GOLD to Lev Bronstien aka Leon Trotsky(a Jew) who came from Russia to New York in, 1917 to Train 300-NY Jews(former russian kommie jews that became usa citizens) and Take that 300 jew group along with Jacobs $20 Million in Gold to begin the jewdeo communists 3rd Try at causeing a mass revolution in Russia, that was sucessfull on 3rd try, and resulted in the mass Extermination deaths of Over 200+ Million Innocent White Christian folks in over a Dozen eastern european nations, beginning with Russia.

            Just a small example of what americas Jew/zio Run/Owned/ Perpetrated, MSM’s & Hollywood wont Never ever Tell You about! Ever heard of Ukrainian “HOLODOMER”? SEE what I mean!(holodomer= Kommie bolshevik Jews Led the forced Starvations of aprox 1/3rd of Ukrains POP , 7-10-Million souls starved by Jewish Kommie Bastards in less than 18 months!..Of Course “some” here are going to deny all this Proven Documented history in their delusional defence of all issues jewish..And of course will also call Me an evil nazi for Posting these factual truths..So..Typical of that Tribes khazar frauds eh…
            —————————————————–
            Incogman’s article continues below…

            Now you might want to ask yourself this one highly illuminating question: What’s a supposed New Yorker “capitalist” like Jacob Schiff doing with the commies and jacking up the blacks? Folks, there’s been many rich Jews like Schiff who have done similar things. Multibillionaire George Soros (real name: Schwartz) is busy doing all this right the hell now. The filthy Jews as a whole have been silently re-engineering our White countries from the inside out and not just with race stuff, either, but Globalism, Zionism, Marxism, radical feminism, homosexual rights, mass immigration of non-Whites into our lands and even scientific subjects that tie-in with “PC” down the road, like anthropology, for crying out loud.

            Not only is all this PC stuff messing with our heads, but have made blacks as mean as snakes. Hell, the GD trouble-making Jews have turned them into crazed, militant, White-hating wackos! (same as russian Jews did there with the “peasants class” to mass Murder fellow russians! now kommie jews are Here in usa doing it to Us white folks!)

      the cracks in the façade are beginning to show what the government, media and their above-the-law bankster owners have been hiding from us all for decades.

      As a career health care worker it absolutely galls me to think that so many of my fellow Americans who had the security of decent medical care and the status of secure and gainful employment are losing it all….and no matter how much artificial stimulus can be foisted upon the world by the Federal reserve it’s never coming back….ever.

      And now those who were being supported with unemployment assistance while they attempted to remain in the workforce are being cast-off while this sputtering economy is unable to absorb them back.

      At this point I must say that I believe in the grand conspiracy theories about the Fed, the Rothschild/Rockefeller /Morgan manipulation, the drug trade, the CIA, the illuminati, big agro, big pharma, the military industrial complex, total lockdown of the MSM….all of it. They’ve consolidated so much control over us that they believe they can win; so their true colors are coming out.

      They’ll put us all in the street until we’re fighting the illegals for day-labor jobs to feed our kids before they will relinquish their stranglehold on the fiat-money, government-enforced, wealth-extraction system they launched from Jekyll Island 100 years ago.

                  Im shure you can find parts on the heavy equipt forums. My old army surplus bulldozer 1944 TD14a international the undercarriage was worn out. I took out a track link and it finally just couldn’t be patched any longer. I found a complete dozer with a bad engine (extreme overheat) on the forums. It had a new undercarriage like 99% whole dozer for $2500. The dozer was so good I simply swapped my engine into it and junked my original machine.

      Notice how EVERY measure Congress (or the administration)manages to squeak out is always ‘kicking the can down the road’ further? Every-single-time, without fail. Remember the recent government budget crisis can kicking episode? Well that is rearing it’s ugly face once more come Feb/March. I used to call bureaucrats and politicians ‘paper pushers’…now I just call them ‘crooked can kickers’.

      What is of note is that the unemployment numbers cannot be ‘fudged’ or manipulated much more. 1.3 million people today followed by another 3 million is not a number you can hide…or try to openly lie about. And we have 2014 so-called elections coming up? People are going to panic real quick, which means crime will skyrocket, which means the police state needs to ratchet up even further.

      See how everything leads to less and less for the people and more and more for the police state? Also without fail. Maybe when the jack booted thugs start loosing family and friends to carjackings and home invasions they will finally wake up. But I won’t hold my breath.

      Outstanding post!

      For the most part, many will simply suffer & die w/o ever realizing the nefarious reasons/agendas or strategies behind their demise, be it in a FEMA camp, multiple false-flag episodes & its resultant fallout/blow-back or on ‘the Road’ as a refugee…its coming irregardless!

      At some point in “the enemy’s equation” there has to exist certain quantum variables, outside their ability to ‘CONTROL VERBATIM’…thus its “OUR JOB”…to physically toss sand in the gears, of/per their plans.

      Which necessitates both a (future) pro-active posture/mindset and a (personal/individual) deep well of knowledge/understanding of the consequences…should the ENEMY win.

      ———————————

      ..and per the quantum variables, see the following list:

      1.> ..belief in GOD & understand that we’re his infantry!

      2.> ..yep, sometimes the best defense, is a good offense!

      3.> ..know the enemy’s weaknesses & attack them on the flank!

      4.> ..understand, that this time around, its for keeps!

      5.> ..surrender, IS NOT AN OPTION!!!

      6.> ..strive mightily to become a…VARIABLE!

      The US is a knuckle-dragging, low grade moronic culture – George Galloway

      The high point of the American Empire has passed and mercifully we have emerged intact from the 20 very dangerous years during which the United States was the sole superpower in the world. We must never allow ourselves to endure that trial again. Power in the world is now passing to the East, to China, to Russia and to other rising nations as the United States is an aging tiger whose teeth are falling out. This was stated in an interview which outspoken and brutally honest British MP George Galloway granted to the Voice of Russia’s John Robles. With regard to US surrogate NATO which is circling both Russia and China with bases and nuclear weapons, he labeled it an “imperial war machine” and called it “the greatest danger to peace and security in the world.” Mr. Galloway was also candid on his assessment of Saudi Arabia which he called a “gangster state” with Prince Bandar acting as chief capo who delivers severed horse’s heads into the bed of whomsoever they wish to intimidate. As for Ukraine Mr. Galloway put the situation into stark perspective by saying: “Can you imagine what would happen if President Putin went to the streets of Toronto on street demonstrations whipping up anti-American feeling, in neighboring country. And yet this is precisely what is happening on the front line in Kiev now,” he added; again President Putin has again played a masterful diplomatic game. As for declining US hegemony he stated: “… they are losing and losing and losing. … they are losing because their power is waning, because hard power is waning, their financial power is defunct and their soft power, their cultural power is virtually non-existent. Anyone who takes a look at John McCain and thinks that that is a cultural soft power icon to desire, to head towards, would need their head examined. This is knuckle-dragging, low grade moronic culture,” he stated.

      And all the while this unemployment is going on, your government is bringing in 3 million immigrants every year, mostly working age people. Why? To drive the price of labor down. When we’re all making 3rd world pay, they’ll be happy. Even the educated are not exempt from the immigration ploy. Ask any computor science graduate.

        The climate in America must be made so inhospitable that third worlders will decide to go elsewhere.
        Otherwise America will become a third world country.

      @ Vicky and Canada Canuk. First the earthquakes in Oklahoma area are mostly from fracking. Look at the depths of these earthquakes on the USGS or other sites, almost all of them are 5 km deep, so 4.6, 5.3, etc. These are shallow and most likely human caused. When you start to see deeper earthquake like what is common around the New Madrid, swarming that are 10-18 km or deeper, that means something is going on.

      The Italy earthquake is to be expected. The African plate has had movement on the western and southern borders a lot in the past 3 weeks. This is not where the main shock will come from. The northern Australian plate, Nazca plate and/or Cocos plate, the eastern and northern Pacific plate, and it is looking like the Caribbean plate is finally getting ready. These are the areas most likely to experience a major earthquake soon, one of more. This should have occurred before Dec.19. There was a 90-95% chance it should have happened by then. Guess this time was that 5-10% time when the time frame is off.

      There is a near 100% chance of at least one major quake that after the Dec.27 Pacific Antarctic Ridge quake will hit by Jan.11. This section on the two plates has been infallible as far as records go back as a precursor zone that 100% of the time leads to a major quake within 15 days. Nothing is totally 100%, but this section is an area that not only leads to major quakes, but really big earthquakes or series of major quakes about 70% of the time.

      I thought this site was about prepping? Long time reader, second time writer. Going to put in a garden in the spring but in the past here in Colorado I have been getting green worms all over my plants. Is there a natural pesticide anyone knows of that is good for this climate? Just kidding about the first sentence, I enjoy all of ya’lls comments. Thank you in advance.

      “The only question is: Are you prepared for when it happens?”
      No..the only real question is WHEN ?

      I’ve put up with endless stories saying the end is nigh, countless experts saying “anytime now” and 5 years post-GFC it ain’t happened !
      It’s inevitable it WILL collapse someday, but will that day be in my lifetime ?
      My bet is 5 years away at least at the current rate and mode of decline, unless something out of left-field takes it all down.

      Maybe one of these expert “insiders” can actually put a date on it for once…

        better look at a chart of our national debt dawg. WHEN in the HISTORY of the FED have you seen them loaning money to banks at zero percent? the EMPLOYED rate of americans is at 58 percent for 5 years or so now. no more jobs left MAKING things in america. our children have no respect for anything/anyone any MORE! our houses are priced at roughly DOUBLE what they are WORTH when interest rates go back to normal. how much interest is granny gettin’ on that money she saved for retirement?(virtually NOTHING)…gubmint buying 2 billion rounds of ammo. obama(don’t)care is about to bankrupt us after the first month or two of 2014….and you don’t see a problem? an idiot, or possibly even a congressman could see this one comin’, and it aint gonna take much longer….but what the hell do i know, i step outa’ the shower to take a piss. hell, i was once beaten by a CHICKEN in a game of tic-tac-toe! i see a collapse comin’, and it aint gonna be YEARS.

        We almost had World War 3 in Syria just a few months ago.

        Obama went out of his way to alienate Saudi Arabia by signing a deal with Iran that gives them everything they want. Expect the Saudis to announce that they will sell oil in other currencies just about any day now.

        Expect the COMEX to default on gold deliveries. They’re almost out of gold now. Once that happens price suppression in the gold market will end, metal prices will go vertical, and the dollar will crash.

        Expect a stock market crash very soon since the market is following the same pattern it did in 1929.

        Expect the economy to continue to implode as people continue to lose full time jobs due to Obamacare and due to massive increases in the cost of healthcare.

        In fact, expect the economic implosion to pick up speed this year.

        I don’t know how we make it to 2015 without a collapse.
