    Labor Day: 90 Million Americans Without Jobs; 36% Of the Population

    This weekend President Obama delivered his weekly radio address commemorating the Labor Day weekend:

    Over the past four and a half years, we’ve fought our way back from the worst recession of our lifetimes. And thanks to the grit and resilience of the American people, we’ve begun to lay a foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth.

    Except like everything else coming out of Washington, President Obama loaded his speech with platitudes and wishful thinking, failing to mention the reality of what’s happening in our economy – and especially our labor force.

    According to a report from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, we’re far from having a laid a foundation of recovery and are, in fact, on a trajectory not of durable economic growth, but one of a complete collapse of our way of life.

    If the health of our labor force is to be an indication of America’s economic health and survival, then the only plausible assessment is that we are about to flat line as a nation:

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported alarming unemployment figures that are reaching the most desperate levels since the Department of Labor began collecting the data during the Truman administration three years after the end of World War II.

    On Aug. 2, the BLS reported nearly 90 million Americans were not currently in the labor force in July, with the percentage of the civilian non-institutional population not in the labor force now registered at 36 percent.

    According to John Williams, an economist known for arguing the government reports manipulated “shadow statistics” of economic data for political purposes, the real unemployment rate for July was 23.3 percent, not the 7.4 percent reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    WND

    Over one-third of able-bodied Americans are not working. That is the stark reality of the situation.

    The President and his Sirens would like us to believe that they have taken the necessary steps to increase the number of jobs and improve wages, but nothing could be further from the truth.

    In fact, if anything, it’s a fact that the President’s mandates, such as his healthcare legislation, are turning us into a part-time nation:

    The Obama administration continues to discount the huge impact its health overhaul law is having in turning America into a part-time nation, calling reports anecdotal and not based on complete data.

    To paraphrase Groucho Marx:  Who are you going to believe?  Me, or your own eyes?

    An avalanche of “anecdotes” continues to pile up as workers across the country are having their hours cut and their health benefits slashed across a broad range of industries.

    For every full time job created in the United States in 2013, we’ve created four part-time jobs. Historically, during times of economic growth and progress, the situation was reversed.

    Everything, from the President claiming we are recovering from the worst recession of our lifetimes to American job creation, is upside down.

    The worst part of it?

    While Americans celebrate the resilience of the American economy over their barbecue grills today, our nation is being systematically decimated through Obamacare mandates, taxation and a destruction of our currency.

    Over the last four years the individual wealth of our nation has been vaporized, and given the policies being implemented by our government, that’s only the beginning of the destruction of the middle class.

    We are on a path of pain and impoverishment, and unfortunately few of our fellow countrymen realize what’s really happening.

    The next stage of collapse is in our sights, and it isn’t going to be pretty.

    Millions of Americans who failed to prepare and insulate themselves from the coming destruction will be blindsided when it hits. Now is the time. Develop manageable and sustainable strategies that will ready you for what’s coming.

    All signs point to serious trouble ahead.

        then again, what’s another $100… his wife just blew $10 million on vacations while 50 million Americans on food stamps scrounge for scraps…

            An apt windmill of manure image of the banksters’ puppet, OutWest, but remember, though culpable, he is not the head of the serpent.

            Since the banksters’ loot was stolen mostly by fraud and usury, both gravely immoral and crimes against natural law, it is perfectly moral to repudiate all debt held by the banksters, to prosecute them, and to seize all assets derived from their centuries of looting and crime sprees.

            There will always be willing prostitutes to service the heinous bidding of the Master Race banksters, so do not ignore the head of the serpent.

            They must all be prosecuted at fair trials. The guilty “elite” and their accomplices want depopulation and enslavement, so let them be the first at Nuremberg 2.

            Prosecute and punish the guilty; leave the innocent alone.

              Obama did not lie. Americans are indeed paving a foundation for economic growth. He neglected to say WHERE it will take place though; don’t look for it in USA. His policies promote success outside US borders, not within.

                The reality is that Obama in specific and Presidents in general don’t have an economic policy but rather sell to the body politic the policies of the power elite.

                “His policies promote success outside US borders, not within.”

                This has been the outcome for decades certainly since NAFTA and China Free Trade. All of this transcends political party and Administration.

                  “The Silent Majority gets fucked!”

                  Yeah, right along with the rest of us political atheists!

                  You don’t seem to get it, do you. “Voters” have “Fucked” themselves, and this country, by voting for their Fuckers.

                  Democracy… the “God that Failed.” What a joke!

                  Don’t you ever wonder why this country just sinks lower, and lower… with every decade… with every vote/election?

                  I don’t. Not any more.

                  Keep on voting folks… cause the country isn’t sufficiently screwed up enough.

                  BTW: If you don’t believe in “engaging your employees” by voting, you must be a “domestic terrorist!” And, you can rest assured, the State will create a new Department in DC to address that problem too!

                  Oh shit, they have… It’s called the Department of Homeland Security, aka, The Gestapo.

                  laura m: I repeat the same things over and over again because they bear repeating. Repetition allows the message to sink into the subconscious where the seed will eventually bare fruit.

                  That post is running 5 to 1 in favor of the message. I’d say it resonates with many more people than the losers and drop outs like you would like.

                  My parents divorced when I was 8 and I grew up as a “street kid” creating my own experiences and building my own world perspective alone from the time I was eleven years old.

                  I have worked since I was nine years old and had my own apartment while I was a senior in high school. Mom and dad contributed only their absence to my life.

                  Why are YOU such a loser? Who do YOU blame it on? YOUR parents? LMAO! :-)

                  The Durango Kidd is a Republican Statist/Fascist.

                  He doesn’t object to what government does.

                  He only objects to what a Democratic controlled government does.

                  Put a Republican in the White House, and he’ll lick government boots all day!

                  DK will eat a shit sandwich, just as long as it’s an (R) shit sandwich.

                  His ilk are everywhere… Especially here on SHTF Plan.

                  They masquerade as “Patriots,” but I know them as “Fascists.”

                  All one needs to do, is read the comments.

                  Yo Mama: I wasn’t inducted. I joined the Marine Corp. My birthday is such that I would have been one of the last ones drafted the year I turned 19, so I decided to join for two years and get it over with.

                  Of course I could have moved to Canada. :-)

                  I timed things so that I would be 21 and able to legally sign contracts as an adult prior to the start of the Fall Semester at University: for which I paid using the GI Bill and two part time jobs, while driving a new Camero from money I saved while in Nam.

            I have been out of the corps labor force for years now. And I plan to stay that way. I wonder how many more of that 36% have not quit working, but just quit paying the government for the privilege?

            The country will be far more free as the percentage of known working slaves decreases. We may not be as wealthy as measured by the banksters, but no one can be free so long as they are counted as a working member of the corp.

            To all those who have followed me off the corporate grid, I tip my hat. For the rest, you are invited to accept the freedom non-reliance on the corp offers, and to keep 100% of what you make every day.

            Stand up and don’t be counted.

                  Nor does it impose a tax on anyone or define “taxable income”. In those regards only, it is similar to the IRC because neither does it.

                  That does not make the IRC into Gods Law.

                  Continue supporting your master Barn Cat. But don’t confuse the corp and it’s law with God and His Law. You have a choice, but can only choose one.

              • Gods Creation says:

                Barn Cat, I am not a tax cheat. To be a tax cheat one would need to be liable for a tax and not pay it. By all means, make your own tax determinations for yourself. No one else can, nor can anyone else make a determination for me. Including Barn Cat or the IRS.

                I certainly make my own determinations, as any free Man would. But I don’t make them for anyone else, and you should not assume that the one you make for yourself applies to me. Especially when your own tax liability is based on fear and false assumptions. Can you tell me exactly which law makes you liable for a tax?

                If you are aware of any tax law that applies to me that I have neglected to understand ( and I HAVE examined them fully), by all means post it here and I will research it to see if it applies to me.

                As for what Jesus was saying, he gave the only answer he could to hypocrites trying to entrap him. He knew full well that EVERYTHING belongs to God, and NOTHING belonged to Ceaser. So he supplied the only answer that he could. And don’t for one second believe that Jesus condoned or told anyone to pay taxes to Ceaser when he said it.

                Jesus cleverly avoided the entrapment, just like when the hypocrite accusers wanted him to judge the woman accused of adultery after he deferred it to the Father (the Supreme Court) for judgment. Rather than judge the case, He said “let he who is without sin cast the first stone”.

                If you believe what you produce with the body God has lent you belongs to Ceaser, then by all means give it to him. But don’t blame me for your own ignorance of the tax laws and misunderstandings of the Bible teachings.

                You can pay them 100% of what you make if you so choose, but that does not create a liability on me or anyone else.

                • GC, don’t be too hard on the Barn Cat. Ignorance is bliss and those that don’t understnad what “The Corp” is also don’t understand real tax liability. Nobody studies anything but the color of law statutes, codes and regulations. They never truly study or question their own liablity while assuming every one else is liable just as they think they are.

                  What wonderful slavemaster assistants they are! As I said, ignorance is bliss.

                  If they would take the time and study and understand The Act of 1871, the social security act and the federal reserve act (and others) they would understand all of this. The fact that they don’t know is not a sin. It is, however, an attribute to be critical of. Then, when they criticize others out of their ignorance they look so foolish.

                  All that GC talks about is documented in law. To be informed and critical may be wise, but to be ignorant and critical, well, its just embarrassing. They show that they are unknowing like a vast majority of the rest of the population.

                  Its no wonder the corp keeps pushing this smackdown on “Sovereign Citizens”. God forbid that the population finds out that THEY ARE ALL SORVEREIGNS and that THE SUPREME COURT SAID SO. The SCOTUS said so in Bond vs Texas. No, not the recent one, the one way earlier. Its hard to find but its there. They hide it pretty good so the likes of Barn Cat can’t find it. As such, it keeps those slavemaster assistants in check.

                  Barn Cat, in stead of calling GC a tax cheat, why don’t you ask him how he “gets away with it?” You sound more jealous that anything. In fact, you sound almost like an establishment shill. When I find out how someone gets out of paying something to our immoral, crooked, murderous corporation-posing-as-a-government, I don’t have the, “Hey! I had to pay mine! He should have to pay his!” attitude. Instead, I have a “How’d he do that?” attitude.

                  The fact is once you realize the rules, you can choose to pay taxes (like I do) or not (like GC doesn’t). I pay them because I choose the type of employment and have asessed the pain I would have to endure to stop paying. GC has either not fallen into the trap as deep as I have or he has endured his pain. Either way, I commend him.

                  Wake up Barn Cat! You don’t have to be a slave if you don’t want to be. If you’ll ask instead of criticize, you’ll get a lot of information on how to be free again. Of course, if you say, “I’m not a slave! What are you guys talking about?”, just forget it. We can’t help you.

                  Ranger,

                  Thanks, and I understand the nature of Barn Cats everywhere.

                  For Barn Cats everywhere I will simplify the “tax laws”. The IRS has stated under oath in court that an “individual” identified in the IRC is “any man or woman that uses a Social Security Number”.

                  If you do not use a Social Security Number, you can not possibly have any liability under the IRC. If you use one by force, and do not correct the information returns of the goons forcing you to use it, you will gain yourself a tax liability. If you use one voluntarily, you definitely have a tax liability and you should pay the price for using the number voluntarily.

                  Because I do not use a Social Security Number for ANY purpose, it is impossible for me to have a tax liability under the IRC, or any other code for federal franchises including State of— codes.

                  Nothing I do, or nothing I earn, is attached to a SSN, therefore it is not considered as “taxable income” in the IRC. PERIOD. The “tax laws” really are that simple.

                  Many will say they have to work and their employer forces them to give a number. If you can be forced to do anything, you are a slave. Admitting that is the first step to gaining your freedom. Most do nothing to resist their slavery and are comfortable within it. Me, not so much.

                  I recently started working regularly for an LLC as a 1099 contractor. Guess what. They will report the 1099 with no number on it, because they will not get one and they have no problem with that. It saves the company a lot of money, and creates no liability for me in doing regular work for them in addition to my other sources of legitimate income which are also not attached to a number.

                  Bottom line for the Barn Cats of the world, you have a tax liability ONLY if you create one for yourself with the VOLUNTARY use of a SSN. If you do not use the SSN, and do not sign the contract (W-4) you do not and can not have a tax liability for using one. If you have no W-4 and send in information returns on yourself, you are just plain stupid.

                  For simplicity Barn Cat, your number is taxed, not you.

                  I am not a number, do not use a number, and thus do not have the same liabilities as someone who does use a number brings UPON THEMSELVES.

                  But one thing Ranger, you can be a Sovereign, or a Citizen, but not both. The corp promotes the term Sovereign Citizen as a way to entrap people who are striving for freedom yet don’t know the entire story well enough to defend themselves. One who claims themselves to be a SC is stuck between the truth and the lies and is known to be an easy target for that mistake.

                  The People are in fact Sovereigns in America, but citizenship in the corp and it’s courts eyes is that of a Statutory citizen.

                  You would be well advised to refer to yourself as a Constitutional Citizen, which infers your sovereignty as the source of the Law.

                  Bottom line…

                  If the Barn Cats wish to continue using their numbers and paying for the privilege of using it, then they are free to do so.

                  But their use does not create a liability for me, and I am sure as hell not gonna create one for myself.

                  It’s a matter of who you want to work for. Yourself of the corp. The choice is, and always has been, yours.

                  Did Barn Cat say he pays taxes to please God?

                  I have never heard such a ridiculous claim.

                  You pay because you are afraid and ignorant of Gods Law and the nature of the “laws” you have replaced it with. If you want to pay taxes to please God, screw the corp and give it all to the church.

                  Egg, ask away. But if you really want to understand the truth AND the “tax laws” it will take a long time. Start with The Great IRS Hoax and then start reading some of the material at SEDM.org.

                  I am always around here to clarify and simplify, but I can’t teach what you will not try to learn on your own.

                • Barn Cat, I just read your response. It is unfortunate for you (and the rest of the USA) that the pervasive ignorance toward “Tax Duty” has been so washed into the brains of pseudo-Christians.

                  There is really only one phrase that can get you to understand how foolish your “Tax Duty to God” statement is:

                  Come out of her…

                  Please. You’re embarrassing us. Not for us, but for you.

                  I have to say, when I read your tax duty statement, I just about choked on my drink. Really? Come out of her. Get a clue. The prophet didn’t say “Drive in deeper!” He said, “Come out of her!”

                  GC, am I on target here?

                  No contention there. The “Citizens” are sovereign but not “US Citizens”. The corp does push that “Sovereign Citizen” term knowing that if someone questions it, they’ll get dazed and confused by the duality of it. I just love how they’ve twisted the language on us just to get us to bow, financially, to them. What a bunch of greedy crooks. …and then there are some that actually believe paying taxes is obedience to God?

                  Oh my! How did we get here? (Don’t answer that, I know. It only makes me nauseious to think of it again.)

                  I just can’t get it out of my head: He called you a “Tax Cheat”!!! I thought I was going to choke on my HFCS laden beverage! I’m sure its not the first time for you but I’m so embarrassed for him. Lord! Show us how to help these people!

                In other words, don’t place too much value on the greed of men, when the kingdom of God is the ultimate prize.

              Yes, that was the official unemployment rate then. The true number was higher, some historians say 40% to 50%. Married women at home were traditionally not considered as unemployed, even though millions tried to find work to keep house and home together when their spouse was officially unemployed. Military enlistments kept thousands off the rolls. Many men worked for room and board, so again not counted.

              This is a depression, no doubt about it.

It was written about the Great Depression from the perspective of the 1980′s. Some of the anecdotes were what I expected, but there were others just should NOT have been included. (Why would anyone reading this book care what a teenager in the ’80s thought about the Depression? Especially when their whole comment is pretty much “Um, gee. I dunno. I didn’t know anyone affected by it.”) I wish the book’s author would have done a rewrite. I was just so annoyed by stuff like that, I stopped reading it about halfway through. I hope can get more enjoyment and edification from it than I did.

          This country is being run by liars, cowards, atheists, baby murderers, greedy manipulators and soul less machines who run on the blood of the hard working, freedom loving American citizen.

          Think about it, our president is a mentally ill coward and congress is nothing but a bunch of greedy selfish pigs who live in an alternate universe. The handout crowd gets bigger everyday and the money they receive comes off of the hard working middle class backs.

          The media is nothing more than minions of the devil; everything is completely backwards. Families are suffering all over this country but you will not be able to read about that, they are the forgotten citizens, their numbers are growing and how this is not being exposed is beyond me.

          A five year old must learn about sex now in the public school system, the government is indoctrinating the children to believe that the government is their real Family, not you because you are stupid and a nuisance.

          Nancy Pelosi is rewriting the bible to suit her slobbering approval of abortion. Gays have been put into the same category as civil rights. World leaders do not fear us any longer, they laugh at us and some even pity us. Hillary Clinton believes she has the right be a presidential candidate even though she is a liar and a vile filthy bitch who has no conscience, a woman who has blood on her hands. Yep, anything goes now and if you don’t like it then that’s just too bad.

          Very soon you will no longer have a voice in anything that the regime does not approve of. You will not be able to post on a site like this because you will be watched, targeted, and your life will be destroyed.

          What will it take for the majority to say, STOP, ENOUGH, GET THE HELL OUT OF MY LIFE, IMPEACH THIS INSANE, INEPT, DICTATOR!

          I don’t see that happening until our pain starts to affect everyone, especially the handout crowd.

          This ever growing evil empire will crumble one day upon itself, of that I am certain.

            This is correct, nothing will change until the masses experience pain of some sort. Once it hits, then we all go thru the suffering process together. This will mean even the ultra-rich. Unless they can completely shield themselves from the streets, they too will be vulnerable. Maybe not financially like us, but having someone place a shiv in your kidney as they take your wallet has it’s own sort of pain. We are on a path to demise, and anyone that feels the Obomber wants anything other than the destruction of the USA is damn blind and stupid at this point. My feeling is that your preps need to be in self-defense supplies/training and mental preparation for street “flare-ups”. Not so much total collapse, but spontaneous riots, rapes, muggings, and seemingly random acts of ape behavior. You will need to survive a crazy event just in order to get back to the relative safety of your castle. I just got back from a trip to Wal-Mart. It hit home how bad things will become when the hoards out there (that we call our fellow citizens) start feeling financial pain as the printing presses wind down for various reasons. We are in for some tough times ahead on way or another.

              For walking city streets these days…Krav Maga, head on a swivel, baton…sad, but necessary.
              And it’s not just the street people. I’ve had five minor run-ins since last October with goofy middle-aged white guys. People around here are ready to blow…at the gas station, on the bus, in the grocery store. That’s hell when you get attacked by Elmer Fudd and Willie Loman, ain’t it?

          Great idea, JustMe! Let’s Look at the “bright side”.

          I’ll reflect on Labor Day weekend as a starting point.

          While i was much younger, in my 30′s ,during the 80′s, i spent Labor Day weekends spending the fruits of my labor, carousing at Myrtle Beach with some buddies or my main squeeze at the time. Party out the last of summer, and party in the next season.

          In my 40′s, mid 90′s to about 2004, Labor Day was spent on the lake with my Lake friends and around their boat docks. With a 21′ Searay cuddy, I was living large and would spend four days chugging beers and having a good ole time with friends and babes, and eating off the Barbie(grill that is). Again, party out the last of summer and in the next season.

          All those years, about two decades, i could care less about what some banksters or crooked politicians were doing. I still loved the Lord and thanked him for every good time and experience i got to enjoy.

          How many were doing the same as i had for all those years? How many of that generation and the next, are doing the same now? Not as many as then, because without jobs they can’t afford it. The majority now are not giving a crap about the banksters/Illuminati/TPTB/Politicians. There are the haves and the have-nots. Both are asleep at the wheel.

          There are too many of them and not enough of us to make a difference so I’m spending my Labor Day, at home without a party. just enjoying my time before the real SHTF. So excuse me if i don’t give a rat’s ass today, about the banksters/politicians/TPTB and who is fighting with whom today. I’m going to the easy chair, flip on the big screen and watch NHRA Drag Racing the whole afternoon, off my $1.28 per day satellite receiver (while i still have it). i might have to play fetch and tug-o-war with Dingo a little, but that is about it.

          No more “big” Labor Day Parties for me. Been there and done that. Thank God. My sights are set on the real future now and it aint’t in this world.

          Ya’ll have a good one, whatever you are doing!

          PWTW

            For a car, get a “classic”, like a mustang up to mid 1970. For a truck, up to early 1980 or a diesel to about 1992. You can work on cars with a ecm and emmisions, it helps to have a code reader which cost between 100 and 300$. If you are worried about EMP, most car ecm’s are shielded. You may have to replace a component on either a old distributer/coil car or a new electronic ignition/coil car. Note..they still have a coil. Carburated cars are easy to work on but parts are beginning to get scarce.

      • Syria is certainly a critical topic — but at this point, based on Obama’s recent speech calling for a vote, we’re all waiting until September 9th when Congress is back in session (apparently, as time sensitive as ridding the world of Assad is, we can wait for 8 more days to decide what we’re going to do). Everything between now and then is just rhetoric from Obama, Maverick McCain, et. al.

        There are numerous reports on the site over the last week covering various aspects of Syria, including the rebel/AlQueda attack.

        Again, definitely a highly important subject, but one that we currently have no new information on.

        As things develop we will keep readers updated.

        Thanks Tac!

          Happy times are here, the housing market is back, the jobs reports are getting better every month, the GDP was not .1% but 2.5%, everything is so much better. Yeah right in fairyland it is. Ask your local family about that, how 50 years ago one paycheck provided a good living, and now it takes 2 or 3 paychecks to not be on the street. Ask a person how they have the 3rd lowest vacation time off in the world. Ask how much anger and stress there is in families because of the fear of running out of money. Ask anyone about the financial death throes anyone goes through if they get sick and need medical treatment. I big bag of hot air this supposed recovery is.
          _________________________________________________________

          @Mac. In the recent days your integrity as someone whom prepares has come into question. There are individuals that feel that you are only running this site to make money, and you are not actually interested in prepping and survival. I think this is utter nonsense. I don’t think anyone that would write such pro-prepper/survivalist articles could not possibly be a prepper/survialist themselves. What people don’t realize is that you have to pay bills and making money from this site keeps it up and running for all of us to enjoy and learn what to do when something does occur. This however doesn’t deter you from being as dedicated as many are to saving yourself and your family when something occurs.

          I think that most if not all survivalist sites are runned by people that are practicing what they are preaching. It is not just money, it is preparing your fellow preppers/survialists and trying to get out the word. The people that ready themselves may be the few sole survivors after a true mega SHTF occurs. I myself get nothing out of commenting and submitting an occasion article other than the personal satisfaction that I hope that I am helping others. They help me by spending their free time with advice that I use all the time. What do you think of this?

          • BI, thank you kindly for your post (and the literally hundreds of posts you have contributed).

            I often try to avoid responding on this particular subject simply because regardless of what I say there are those who have their own thoughts on the and are not open to considering what it is I am actually trying to do.

            As noted by Outwest below (or above somewhere), this web site has been around for quite some time — going on 5 years now. For the first 18 months there were few readers, but we had a budding community. There were no advertisements running. This site is and has been a hobby for me since the get-go… A place to share thoughts and ideas. I hope people feel that the overall purpose now is the same as it was then.

            Over the years it has grown — significantly — from just 50 readers a day to sometimes over 50,000. This is due in large part to the community — the people who come here, find the information valuable, and then share it with friends and family (exactly as I intended to do with my friends and family when I first started it). Often times, I think people share pages with this web site just for the discussions that are taking place.

            With that much interest in the information and discussions, sponsors soon started contacting us about getting their products and services in front of our audience.

            I am not going to say that the advertisements don’t generate enough revenue to provide some level of support for me and my family. They do. And I thank those sponsors for finding this web site good enough to promote their products and services. Likewise, I thank the visitors and customers of those sponsors who have chosen to utilize their services.

            What most people don’t know is that in addition to SHTFplan I am involved in various other projects. This web site, and the other projects we work on help support the livelihoods of a dozen people and their families.

            None of us are in it for the money — I know that may be unbelievable to some, but the fact is that we are all passionate about what we do. And last time I checked, it’s OK to love what you do AND be able to support yourself financially as a result. The monetary rewards are a by-product of the hours upon hours of time and energy we expend to put together the information we get out to people. Not one of the people I work with have taken a vacation since I have been working with them… Not because they can’t… but because they love doing what they do. Even when they do take a “few days off”, they are still “working” on something… I’ve honestly never worked with a more dedicated group of individuals in my life. You want to talk about resilience in the face of adversity? The folks I work with are a testament to the American spirit, innovative ideas, and undaunting work ethic.

            I’ll note that at no time is any reader asked to pay us anything for the information we put out – and this is true for so many other wonderful web sites in this community. The advertisements running here are for the benefit of readers, and you as readers can choose to review a sponsor’s web site or not. If visitors to this web site did not find the products and services relevant, then we would not have advertisers. It is as simple as that. So, in addition to our primary goal of getting free information out to people, we also find that there are products and services our community desires.

            There are, of course, various costs involved with maintaining a network like the one I am involved in. The costs people do not see include dedicated servers for our web sites that can 1) handle the immense traffic flows and traffic spikes 2)protect the network from attacks 3)Provide redundancy in case the digital SHTF. This is literally in the thousands of dollars just for our servers (check out the dedicated servers provided by our webhosting company at LiquidWeb.com and you’ll see what I mean… It’s quite expensive to ensure uptime and reliability!

            On top of that — everyone who works with me has dedicated their lives — their LIVES – to spreading the message… some spend hours a day finding relevant news material to keep people abreast of what’s really happening at sites like (http://www.TheDailySheeple.com), others, like my wife Tess (http://www.ReadyNutrition.com) toil in the garden and on the farm during the days, and then develop actionable information so that people can implement realistic strategies in their lives. (In regards to being a prepper/survivalist, please take a look at Ready Nutrition if you have any question as to whether or not we are actively living [or trying to live] the way I describe in many of the articles I write… we’ve spent years trying to ‘disconnect’ from the system that has embedded its claws in our lives since birth).

            The fact is, that everyone needs a roof over their heads and food on the table, and the advertisements running on this web site and others help us to make that happen. If you’ve ever tried to write an informative article or produce a video (BI, you know what I mean!) you know how time consuming that can be. Now, consider that at the above referenced web sites (as well as the others I have not mentioned) we are doing that every single day… that’s a lot of time and energy. I think that most people reading this understand the commitment involved.

            If all of these people did not dedicate the time and energy that they do, then I strongly feel that the thousands of insights, ideas and discussions that have come from them over the years never would have seen the light of day.

            Insofar as survival/preparedness sites in general — I have personally met with many folks in this community, and regularly carry on conversations with them through email —- They are living the life; They REALLY are.

            You can’t make this stuff up unless you believe it… unless you live it. That’s the bottom line.

            And those folks, like myself, spend a good part of their lives practicing what they preach, and then putting that information out there for others to digest.

            Folks can believe what they will about this web site and my intentions. Unlike many of the things in our lives, this is not one you are forced to engage in at the barrel of a gun. If people do not find the resources we share to be of value, then I don’t think they would visit.

            If people did not want to discuss these things, then we wouldn’t have a community.

            That’s what we’ve built here…. it’s not what I built… it’s what WE have built. And I sincerely appreciate every single comment and interaction people make with this web site.

            There would be no SHTF Plan without the good people who come here, communicate with each other, and share with those they know.

            BI, I thank you and the thousands of people who have contributed their ideas… That’s what makes it all go ’round.

            Hopefully, after reading this, people will have a better idea of our purpose, why we have advertisers, and how many people are actually involved in keeping this network up and running.

            …. apologies for the long winded response… it’s not something I can explain in a 15 second sound bite, and I’m not even sure if this comment covers it :)

            Thanks all,

            Mac

              @Mac,

              As a former webmaster myself, I can say from experience that everything you say about running a web site is true. If you are to have ANY credibility whatsoever, it takes hours and hours of research and vetting of info. Especially these days, with the MSM being dumped for their credibility issues.

              It also takes a lot of time to CREATE and format a web page, even using software tools like Frontpage (I know, it’s an old tool). People take for granted all the decisions made to create a readable web page with reliable links and appreciable web graphics. I had to create all of my proprietary graphics by hand.

              I didn’t even have comments on my old site, I just posted an email address and had to build those comments into he page. I didn’t have my own servers, I was hosted on someone else’s. From experience, hosting a server is hard work to do it right, especially today, with all the spying and hacking going on.

              I was lucky and never got hacked, but I had to battle corruption and trolls, just like you do. I had a lot less tolerance for them than you do (hat tip).

              I comment here and there on the WWW, but mostly, I save my thoughts for this site.

              This feels like my home too. Thanks for bearing all the work.

          This could very well be a grace from God, 8 days to get our houses in order and flee into the mountains warning Matt 24:16. When general Titus surrounded Jerusalem there was such a grace whereby he departed for a while then returned & in that space 1000′s of christians who remembered Jesus’s words escaped that city before its destruction. Hey im just thinking allowed over here im not saying run to the hills just tie up loose ends & be double prepared come Sept 10 or 11 because we just dont know & just maybe the hills that are not on fire at this time might be a good place to be for a little camping vacation

          • Well, you see, guys, thats why we’re not understanding what Obama is doing. We’re trying to apply logic. In order to do that you need to know the whole story.

            My contention is this: if you knew the REAL truth about what Obama is doing and why it would seem logical (…and the entire country would be fighting over who gets to kick the chair out from under him!)

            The problem is that Obamas logic is based on agendas that will never be revealed to you or I in a timely manner. What may look illogical to you and I is perfectly logical to the psychopath in chief that is our pResident.

            What I’m really finding out is that we do not have a president. (…or a congress or a senate for that matter!) What passes for our “government” is really a for-profit corporation that calls itself “The US Government”. You can bet that statement’s gonna get me on a list. But, you know what, I don’t care anymore. The truth is the truth and those that lie to the people are destined to pay a horrible price in the end. …and those that punish those for speaking the truth will pay an even higher price.

            What’s happening to our country is directly related to what we’re doing to other countries.

            Loss of rights, financial collapse, military issues, bankster takeovers, growing poverty and national debt, all of it is the result of nation building and butting into other countries business. It’s kinda hard to separate the two.

        OK before heading to the easy chair, I will leave ya’ll with a funny joke i posted here sometime ago.

        Grandma’s Boyfriend

        A 5-year-old boy went to visit his grandmother one day.

        Playing with his toys in her bedroom while grandma was dusting, he looked up and said, ‘Grandma, how come you don’t have a boyfriend now that Grandpa went to heaven?’

        Grandma replied, ‘Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious programs make me feel good and the comedies make me laugh. I’m happy with my TV as my boyfriend.’

        Grandma turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible.

        She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in focus.

        Frustrated, she started hitting the backside of the TV hoping to fix the problem.

        The little boy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door and there stood Grandma’s minister.

        The minister said, ‘Hello son, is your Grandma home?’

        The little boy replied, ‘Yeah, she’s in the bedroom bangin’ her boyfriend.’

        The minister fainted.

        Now, that’s funny…..I don’t care who you are!

        @ eppe. Funny. Not to dimish the comics of this at all, and risk being classified as some annoying know it all, there are certain answers to your humorous questions that many people don’t know. I was curious about many of these pondering questions and tried to answer them.

        A prostitute that didn’t get paid is, believe it or not, a breach of contract.

        Any political office it is considered assassination, but how an entertainer gets this label shows the star struck level of people and how far into the clouds their minds are.

        The extra penny goes into keeping apeman helicopter ben’s printing press on the highest level it can reach.

        What is even stranger is that when they put wheels on luggage it took much time after to figure out to put an extending handle on the luggage.

        Studies in ghost revel that usually a dead person, spirit is wearing their favorite clothes. You never see a nude ghost for some reason.

        This is a nerd alert, they say cured ham because all the bacteria is supposed to be removed after the processing.

        Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care, my masters has gone away. Jimmy can get away with a lot and not get whipped while his master is gone. Real 1800′s slave song.

        Dogs, cats, birds, reptiles cannot stand to have someone blow in their face, it is a sign of aggression.

        I have one light fixture that no bug could get in that is a twist on type, others have small spaces to crawl into as the light is not completely enclosed. One reason for this is to let in air to avoid excessive overheating of the bulb.

        I read they use sterilized needles for lethal injection is case someone else gets accidentally stuck.

        I have seen only once or twice someone actually try to shoot Superman in the face, I think everyone has that reflex to something thrown towards the eyes.

        Kamikaze pilots wore helmets in case their heads are knocked against the side of the plane and their lose consciousness before completing their mission.

        Lisp could also be lizp, the s is reversed to the z in England. such as realize is realise. Guess this is where it came from.

        People become so desperate to eat that sour looking piece of stale horsemeat doesn’t look too bad after a few trips back to the refrigerator.

        Actually the bubbles are not white, but an extremely faded from the original color of the liquid. The bubble is an expanded and stretched out small portion of the liquid. Same is true with liquid soap such as Dawn, only appears completely white.

        I use the suction device to get the string up after a couple of runs over with the vacumm cleaner are unsuccessful.

        No mattress sales I have ever seen on Christmas Day.

        People are far better to let what is falling off the table fall, in a sitting position most are just in a much too awkward position to catch anything.

        One that many wonder about, but there is an answer to is: Why is there braille for drive up ATM’s? Someone in the backseat can still use it in back of the driver.

        That 1 in 4 doesn’t apply to me or my frinds, we are all nuts. ;)

        The rest of these are meant to not be answered. Hope I didn’t take the fun out of reading this.

          “”"A prostitute that didn’t get paid is, believe it or not, a breach of contract.”"”

          It said having sex with a prostitute against her will, not without getting payment. Willful entry, or being entered willfully in this case, is a prerequisite to contract, so there was no contract to breach.

          If you can’t read and understand the questions properly to begin with, why bother pondering on them? Flawed assumptions lead to flawed conclusions, even when analyzing a joke.

          Having said that, I vote for petty theft.

                God will judge me favorably for refusing the mark of the beast and standing upon His Law in all earthly matters. And He will judge me favorably for trying to impart the knowledge He has given me to others like you who have been deceived.

                Barn Cat: That bible verse you quoted to Pay ceaser etc..Thats Not Christ telling you to pay taxes.

                Key part is Pharisee were trying to TRAP Jesus into either saying Yes pay tax to ceaser, or NO instead Pay Tax as a Tithe to the Rabbis at the temple.

                If Jesus answered it Either way, them scheeming pharises tryint to Entrap Jesus would have gone to Squeel to Rome leaders and say Jesus is against tax paid to rome.

                Or theyd have claimed Jesus was in Defiance of the Tithe laws….So Jesus Out smarted the pharisee by telling them bring me the coin, then asked whos pictures on coin, after pharisee said Ceasers picture is on it. He told them then give the coin to ceaser since His names is on it as owner…Do You get it Yet Barn Cat? Its Not a Pay taxes command from Jesus.

                It was a lesson for pharisee jew rabbi who thought they were smarter and can trap the Lord.

      When the economy (SHTF) blows up in their face (and it will) we can rest assurd the people who put us here will be safe in underground bunkers with LOTS of food, water etc. even medicins and doctors to care for them, while they have troops guard them. But they will NOT be out of touch we can sleep well knowing our leaders will be safe and STILL calling the shots (that is they will be shooting at YOU) while martial law is instituted across the country. Yes you can sleep well knowing our government our politicians (the best money can buy) will be well protected and cared for while YOU hunt rats to cook over a camp fire to eat and drink water from a ditch or a creek.

        they have paid for this with the common peoples money! There are other underground bunkers in several locations. The NWO elete believe that can wait it out in safety. After wards they plan to emerge and rule over whoever survives. Whatever happens be it nuclear,Economic or clatyclismic If they go underground and leave the masses unprotected. We need to seal them up inside. They are the purveyors of failed government. We don’t want or need their parasite failed governing asses any longer. Even if where sick and dying from radiation poisioning. We still can use earthmovers & equiptment. possibly explosives and make those bunkers in Virginia, Colorado & elsewhere into tombs. Possibly pump gasoline into the air intake. Maybe cut off the electricity. We need to seal those NWO assholes up inside.

          Okay, my paraphrasing from Doug Hagmann:

          7 countries in 5 years US targets to destabilize:
          Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia, and Libya.
          The global picture is to reshape the entire power structure of the world, not just the middle east.
          Iraq and Afghanistan was about oil and opium.
          Syria and Iran are agents for Russia; therefore, attack them, and attack Russia.
          It is all about the oil, energy, and global economic system, bringing in a new currency by killing the dollar through depletion of Saudi oil, which is near any way.
          Prince of Saudi offered Russia exclusive control over price, production, and distribution of Saudi oil in exchange for Russia allowing US and Britain to invade Syria.

      I am encouraged by the fact that everyone recognizes that fully 90% of the American public is opposed to a war with Syria. This means that at least in this instance the blinders have been pulled off the people of this country. Can we as people who have the ability to see thru the lies and hypocricy of Obama and his administration build on this revelatation? Up to this point, the majority of our population has choosen to be decieved by Obama and his handlers. It has been a long standing ingrained belief by the majority of Americans that the government has their best interest at heart at the basic level. They think that the government will do some things that don’t benefit them, but overall what the government does is good for the people as a whole. This may be coming under more scrutiny though as the local law enforcement in almost all areas of the country have taken it upon themselves to become much more aggressive toward the citizens they have sworn to protect, especially the more defenseless ones, (ie women, the elderly, children and the indigent.) There is also this attitude by local elected officials that if a nightmare project they thought up can get some federal funding, it is bound to be good for all the citizens. When EBT cards won’t buy the groceries, some of thes projects such as $300,000 for a 2 hole bathroom or $6 million for a 6 mile walking trail to nowhere may really come to bite these local officials.

      Today, I noticed that 40,000 longshoremen have decided to opt out of Obamacare. The cracks are beginning to appear everywhere. Next month Obamacare will be the subject everyone will be engrossed in as they try to figure how to buy health insurance and still pay the bills. I will be one of them, because the health insurance company that has managed my healthcare policy for 43 years told me they will no longer offer healthcare insurance. We don’t need to be confrontational with people, but we need to keep the message of lies and deceit coming from the government at all levels in front of people continuously. Hopefully people are going to wake up and realize that they have been believing in a evil government that systematically lies about everything. Nothing is sacred to the government and their monetary backers except the destruction of this country while they confiscate all the wealth. The whole 535 + the president are playing us for a bunch of suckers. Regardless of what is coming out of their mouth or what party they belong to all of them are sold out to the top dollar. It is all evil bullshit.

      On this day I will not point a finger at a political party.
      I will point it at a generation.
      The baby boom generation literally sold
      America out. They got on the boards of companies and shut down factories and shipped the manufacturing base to China and other places. Think Al Gore.

      Then their national security threat numbers drove up the price of housing.
      This triggered an entire generation to be enslaved to the bankers.

      Then….when they inherit money from their depression era greatest generation deceased parents… instead of focusing on the financial planning for their grand children..they all bought RVs, Boats, second homes and traveled the money away.

      They sold off the businesses their parents build up for decades and pissed the money away with no planning for future generations.

      So…. Then they all voted socialism/dem and got Obama in office.

      Here I am….creating a new company.
      A code base I can replicate.
      Sorry Obama and your ilk.
      I won’t be creating any jobs for your people.
      I’m seeking full automation and don’t plan on having a single employee.
      If I do…it’s just family and extended family.
      I know of a guy who owns a pizza place. They are laying all NON FAMILY off!
      Enslave someone else dem scum.

      No dems, no boomers.

      There’s my response to the most fucked up generation in American history.
      Your kids are just waiting for you all to die off so they can pay off their credit card debt.

      Final thought…. The liberal enslavement of the employers to the employees via FICA match, 401k match, Workers Comp, disability and so on….

      NO FUCKING WAY WILL I EVER CREATE ONE JOB EVER.

      It’s full automation, job schedulers and event handlers.
      A business model that is designed to eliminate all jobs.

      There you go you bunch of socialist commie pricks.
      Fucking starve.

      As soon as I hire just one person…my payroll red tape government nightmare begins.

      Nope… Enjoy your Obama phone.
      When you all call guys like me for a job…you’ll just get an answering machine.

      THIS IS THE NEW CAPITALIST RESPONSE TO SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM.
      ZERO JOBS. THAT’S THE NEW BUSINESS MODEL.
      If we do hire…it’s family only!!!

          As a younger “boomer”, I agree. We were born when we were without planning it to inconvenience others. My husband and I have worked hard all of our lives, have no credit card debt, and didn’t inherit much from our parents. (World War I era for both of us.) I have to admit Al Gore (the crazed sex poodle)is dreadful, but I’m not responsible for him.

          Also,as a note on grammar, “decimate” equals ten percent, not total destruction. It refers to a particularly nasty method of punishment by the Romans who would kill every tenth soldier in a unit to enforce discipline. Am sure Obama would love that.

          It’s not a matter of not liking people of a certain age or even blaming all boomers for the cumulative effect their generation has had on this nation. That said, we do need to be honest about the net results of the boomers and it has not been good. Some were given little but were given good character and have done a lot with it. They deserve our applause as much as anyone and I wish those boomers had more influence than they do. Saddly, the ones with influence are those who have done the greatest damage. Many of those were given too much, were asked too little of, and in reaction turned on those who had sacrificed so much for them and the nation which made them so priveleged. Those of us in the generations which follow have had to walk in the shaddow of the boomers over-extended adolescence; their love affair with themselves in TV and movies; and now with the derth of advancement opportunitite in the job market because they are puttinmg off retirement. What is left for those of us still getting entry level jobs in our 40′s? Don’t take the resentment personally, but understand what is in the wake of the boomer generation and what havoc it wrecks on all Americans.

            There where so many boomers that the first boomers And Pre boomers born between 1935 & 1945 came of age at an optimal time. They entered the workforce during the time when the supply of labor couldn’t meet the demand. they bought at low prices & interest. The US economy was growing up until the jimmy Carter fake gas shortage in the 70,s. That’s when wages began to stagnate and Inflation took off. That was when the US began to decline. Those born after 1950 never had the same advantage. There where so many of them they overwhelmed the schools ,job market and supply of things like affordable homes ect. its the parents fault for having too many children. My folks had seven children and there was very little to go around. The older kids got new clothes and the younger got the hand me downs. But dad and mom had to always buy a new car and keep up with the jonses. Blame the parents of the Boomers. Those parents where the Top benificiarys of the Social Security Ponzi scheme. They where the selfish greedy hogs who wouldn’t retire and let a younger person advance. That 80+ year old you see working at Wal Mart is a WWII parent of some baby boomer. They don’t need the money there just greedy. Most Baby Boomers where part of too many persons chasing too few jobs & products. Many wrongly actually believed that they where Middle Class. When In fact all they where was deeper in debt than should have been humanly possible. Now they cant meet their financial obligations. However they aren’t really losing anything. It was never theirs. When you buy on credit it don’t belong to you until the very last payment is made. Until you make that last payment your nothing but a glorified renter.

        My Gift to The Obama Bums:

        I think if you would have just pointed a finger to the Obama bums I could have agreed with most of your statements.

        The destruction of America was in the planning stages way before the “boomer” generation. Your finger pointing and rage needs to go back to the morons that allowed the unfederal reserve. That was the beginning of the end of ALL our generations, including yours.

        You need to check out who owns these large corporations and who is on these corporate boards and who has shut down all these factories…..wasn’t me or any Joe Schmoe “boomer” that I knew. Being on a corporate board or owning a corporation? Most boomers I know were out working our asses off trying to give their spoiled, snot nosed, I want, I am entitled kids (from your post I gather this is where you fit) what us Joe Schmoe boomers never had. My grandparents and parents never had a pot to piss in to leave to anyone.

        Once again we are trying to divide people instead of placing the blame where it belongs. Our “boomer” generation is a trusty bunch, believing in rah!rah! America……believing that the scum we were sending to DC were American, and on the same page that we were. Why if you were to suggest that something smelled rotten in DC, or there were Zionists scheming about a One World Order and how they were going to use America to advance their agenda when I was a young boomer I would have been considered a “nut job”.

        You say we all voted for o and socialism. Don’t lay that on me…..Once the DC crowd got the one man, one vote law passed us boomers didn’t stand a chance. The big populations in the big cities controlled everything. There is a map on the internet that shows the ethnic make-up of all large cities in America and I will leave it to your IQ as to who makes up most of the population of those cities. Our stinking immigration policies have contributed to that problem. I know it includes a major portion of what I am assuming is your generation. Those voting blocks are not all baby boomers. Young voters made up a huge part of the election? of o.

        Once again, that dirty, overused word THEY always comes into play. Educate yourself as to who the THEY are who have shut down factories, killed manufacturing, moved corporations overseas. THEY are the people anxiously chomping at the bit to see us boomers and you live in a vastly different America and THEY are succeeding. THEY are after a one world government. I will leave it to you to figure out why; if you haven’t already.

        If you are so smart, gather up your generation and help change things. I was too busy working to pay taxes so your generation could hang out, smoke dope, get in line for your food stamps so you could eat, apparently making fun of us boomers that have made it all possible for you.

        Apparently you were not left with an inheritance. So sorry. Don’t care what your decision is in this world as far as your plans for a career, whatever. Just quit laying all the blame on us boomers, our backs are nearly broken from carrying the load.

          Even if you don’t have debts…you pay the country’s debts to the bankers via your federal paycheck tax.

          History will look back at the “ME” generation and judge them on what was left behind… Federal and state debt and no factories to provide the wages to pay things off.

          I’m now in survival mode.
          There’s no rebuilding the country from the “age wave”.

          Pay off all debt.
          Start your own businesses that require no employees. I’m in IT..so this is possible.

          The United States is being collapsed just as Russia crashed.

          I do think one can point the finger at the generation that pissed it all away.

          The UN agenda 21 doctrine is being aligned.

          The US Dollar has crashed 44% since 2000.

          Obummers plan is to crash the dollar.

If my practice becomes busy, I will be paying my retired MIL to help out. Folks who’ve never started a business in today’s environment wouldn’t understand.

      Just believe the opposite of what is said in every instance when that info comes from our government and their backers. Health insurance has become unaffordable for the majority in America. Profits must continually rise for corporate America, while the rest lose ground and can’t keep up with the gouging. It’s a no win situation, obviously planned by the greedy to impoverish America. All the money is poured into spying and military expansion to protect the government from we the people. Something must be done by the people to stop this track and the fall into tyranny. I too thank this site for the freedom to express opinions.

      How to get rid of extra lite bread.

      Peel some apples and slice.
      put in water and bring to a boil
      Add sugar and cinnamon
      butter or palm oil
      add several slices of lite bread
      add a little dry oatmeal
      add rasins and nuts if you like them
      boil the mix and make sure it is not too moist
      put on casserole dish and bake.

      If you have to ask how much of each, you are not a cook or a prepper. Just go to the store and buy a pie.

        8 slices tomato
        2 C milk
        2 eggs
        1 tps salt
        Dash of nutmeg
        1.5 TBS butter

        Preheat oven to 400F
        Layer the slices of bread with cheese, tomato and meat. In a seperarate bowl whisk together milk, eggs, nutmeg and salt. Pour over bread layers and dot the top with butter. Bake 30-45 min or until toothpick stuck in middle comes out clean. An alternate I like is to use another kind of chese, no tomato, and lots of garlic. Very healthy, warm, savory and cheap with day-old bread.

        Unfortunately today, when you are able to pay bills and afford to live without having to punch a time clock on the tax roles, this govt thinks you must be a drug dealer or a thief and puts you under surveillance to determine which one you are.

        The IRS starts investigating to find out where your money is coming from, so they can take their share.

        The CIA thinks you might be a terrorist receiving support from other terrorists.

        A neighbor thinks you must be a squatter cooking meth in the basement and reports you to police, who always tend to agree.

            braveheart, A few years ago I worked an international project for a very large American company. On the team were Germans, Italians, French, South Afrikans, and Americans. When it came time for meetings the Americans and South Afrikans were on time, the Germans 5 minutes late but came in as a group, the Italians were 30 minutes late and the French never showed up. When it came time for the products to be delivered, the German products were excellent but we had to listen to their glorious descriptons for hours, the American products had a few typos, the South Afrikans were short and to the point, the Italians were still working on their contribution 6 weeks after the project due date and of course the French never turned in their product. True, personal experience.

              1895: Edmond James de Rothschild the youngest son of Jacob (James) Mayer Rothschild visits Palestine and subsequently supplies the funds to found the first Jewish colonies there, this is to further their long term objective of creating a Rothschild owned country.

              1897: The Rothschilds found the Zionist Congress to promote Zionism (a political movement with the sole aim of moving all Jews into a singularly Jewish nation state) and arrange its first meeting in Munich. However due to extreme opposition from local Jews, who are quite happy where they are, this meeting has to be moved to Basle, Switzerland and takes place on 29 August. The meeting is chaired by Ashkenazi Jew, Theodor Herzl, who would state in his diaries,

              “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews….become worse….this will assist in realization of our plans….I have an excellent idea….I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth….The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”
              Herzl is subsequently elected President of the Zionist Organisation which adopts the, “Rothschild Red Hexagram or Sign,” as the Zionist flag which 51 years later will end up as the flag of Israel.

    30. Complete horse shit drama scribblings. There were never more than 150 million jobs at the height of the working boom , including lettuce pickers , chaing gangs and paper routes .
      So reality is there are about 23 million missing which is bad enough without inventing 67 million positions which never existed in the first place.

      Try real statistics for job/finance for a change. Like out of the bottom 90 % of jobs less than 1 out of four pay 40 thousand or better.

      Like 76 % of americans maybe more have no discretionary income and live check too check , one flat tire away from being homeless in some cases.

      In short tell the truth it is bad enough without adding some hyperbolic horsefuckery about jobs that never existed in the first place.

        They may have canceled it ‘because of the sequester.’ TPTB probably saved more money finding ways to make sequester painful to the public than they would ever have planned to do from principle.

          Yep, Sigi. The “sequester” was just a slowing in the rate of growth. There were no real cuts at all. All the shit on NPR about air traffic controllers being furloughed and all that; it’s just alarmism to get the government’s free spending going again. What we really need is to abolish the IRS (and the income tax), the SEC, the FDIC, EPA, HHS, DHS, HUD, DOE, Department of Labor, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Transportation, and most of the other federal programs and also do away with Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid.
          At MOST, there should only be Departments of Treasury, Interior, Justice, Defense, and State. ALL other agencies and government spending, all welfare, all foreign aid, all waste, all regulation, should be whacked…killed…ended…dissolved…dismantled…and probably sprayed with Chlordane and the remaining inventory of Agent Orange just to make sure it all stays dead!

            That’s not entirely true. Civilian DOD contractors did have their hours and pay cut. My sister is one of those and she rents a house from me. I cut her rent commensurate with the ‘sequester cuts’.

              I don’t doubt your experience, or that some are suffering because of the sequester. However, consider this from Forbes:

              “According to The Wall Street Journal ”federal domestic discretionary spending soared by 84 percent with some agencies doubling and tripling their budgets” during Barack Obama’s first two years in office. In fact the sequester would scale back just one of every six dollars in discretionary spending increases since 2008 – hardly a “huge blow.” Also, discretionary spending in 2008 was already tremendously inflated – having increased by more than 60 percent over the previous eight years.”

              “In other words this isn’t even really a cut – “devastating” or otherwise – it’s a modest growth rate reduction following years of unnecessary, embarrassing and unsustainable excesses.”

              Yes, they did furlough air traffic controllers in 2013, and they cut TRICARE from 2012-and prior levels, etc., but we haven’t cut spending, as such. During the Bush and Obama years, we greatly increased spending.

      I am so pissed off trying to watch any news on the boob tube. They (the entire news world) is changing the narrative on the upcoming war on Syria. Now it is not should we go, but rather the questions are now when?, what is the endgame when we go?, how big do we bomb them?. They put a freaking poll out for everything including what is Miley’s best haircut. However, not one poll on the websites that simply asks should we go. Now they ask should we go with other countries or just alone. This is fucked up. The polls are 90% of the public says stay the fuck out, yet they won’t even discuss that at this point. They have changed the narrative.
      My head has been trying to figure what in the hell has them wanting this war so badly?
      1) Obama just wants us to continue bankrupting ourselves to finish us off
      2) Give the military some work to keep them feeling “needed” and off the streets and out of the unemployment lines.
      3) Simply stirring shit up to draw attention and story lines away from the October rollout of the first wave of Obamacare and the failing economy.
      4) He truly wants us to start some shit with someone to start a true WW3
      5) A combination of the above.
      I have to say I am confused on the motives here. Even more confused seeing how the media and the Dems and Repukes are seemingly going along with it. What in the hell is going on?

        Gontoolong,

        I found some info for you in the Washington Post. :-)

        “Most in U.S. oppose Syria strike, Post-ABC poll finds”

        Americans widely oppose launching missile strikes against the Syrian government for its alleged use of chemical weapons, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll that finds little appetite for military action across the country despite a growing drumbeat in Washington.

        Nearly six in 10 oppose missile strikes in light of the U.S. government’s determination that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people. Democrats and Republicans alike oppose strikes by double digit margins, and there is deep opposition among every political and demographic group in the survey. Political independents are among the most clearly opposed, with 66 percent saying they are against military action.

        http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/09/03/most-in-u-s-oppose-syria-strike-post-abc-poll-finds/?wpisrc=al_comboPN_p

        From the tone of all the politician quotes I’ve been reading today, we’re going in. Obama’s done his back-office politicking and gotten assurances of the votes he needs for Congress’s approval, and now, they’re just thinking through possible consequences of our country’s actions, depending on which actions we take.

        It’s just so stupid and senseless. And Kerry pretty much said we don’t really give a crap about Syria itself. We care about all our vested interest in Syria’s *neighbors*. Humanitarian effort (if you can call a military strike humanitarian) is just a convenient excuse.

          “Going in” might be the wrong word choice. It has a different meaning than I intended. I meant that we’re going to go forward with *some* kind of strike, not that we’re going IN (as in putting troops on the ground).

      Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations.

The Statement of Purpose from the bill read: To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.

          Four votes in the Senate on UN gun control, 1 vote in the Supreme Court on Hellerman-Second Amendment, just a few votes for Obamacare, etc., etc. This is why they’re running so fast, they know we’re waking up and will start to reverse this kind of garbage in the next election cycle.

        1880: Rothschild agents begin formenting a series of pogroms predominantly in Russia, but also in Poland, Bulgaria and Romania. These pogroms resulted in the slaughter of thousands of innocent Jews, causing approximately 2 million to flee, mainly to New York, but also to Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and Los Angeles.

        The reason these pogroms were initiated, was to create a large Jewish base in America, who when they arrived, would be educated to register as Democrat voters. Some twenty years later, this would result in in a massive Democratic power base in the United States and be used to elect Rothschild front men such as Woodrow Wilson, to the Presidency, to carry out the bidding of the Rothschilds.

        ROTHCHILD Jews BUY MSM: Beginning with Reuters news service….

        1891: The British Labour Leader makes the following statement on the subject of the Rothschilds,

        “This blood-sucking crew has been the cause of untold mischief and misery in Europe during the present century, and has piled up its prodigious wealth chiefly through fomenting wars between States which ought never to have quarrelled.
        Whenever there is trouble in Europe, wherever rumours of war circulate and men’s minds are distraught with fear of change and calamity you may be sure that a HOOK-NOSED Rothschild is at his games somewhere near the region of the disturbance.”

        Comments like this worry the Rothschilds and towards the end of the 1800’s they purchase Reuters news agency so they can have some control of the media.

      Egyptian Egg on Obama’s Face

      Jul 07, 2013In 2011, President Obama quickly called on President Mubarak to acquiesce to demonstrators’ demands and leave office.With Mubarak out of the way, Obama proceeded to support the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, who succeeded in stealing the revolution.Obama’s support extended to an ex-con named Muhammad Morsi. By his own admission, Morsi was in prison during the January 25 demonstration. But he was in contact with members of Hamas, who broke into the prison and freed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood prisoners.When Morsi ran for the presidency, Obama continued to support him, even when it was clear that the close election was rigged by dubious tactics.With six possible Muslim Brotherhood operatives working in the Obama administration, and Obama’s full-fledged support of Morsi, you would think that Egyptians would be in love with Obama. But the deeply troubled Egyptian public is in no way enamored with this White House. Quite the contrary.More than 40 percent of Egyptian citizens currently must survive on about $2 US per day. Lines to purchase gasoline stretch on for hours. The lines for a tank of propane—needed for cooking and other necessities of life—extend for up to nine hours. Electricity is cut off from 2-3 hours per night.When the Egyptian masses finally couldn’t take it anymore, 22 million people signed a petition to recall Morsi’s election—more than twice the number of people than originally voted for him.Then something totally unprecedented happened: 30 million people took to the streets. The largest mass demonstration in human history.The Egyptian Army had tried on many occasions to mediate between President Morsi and the opposition. But Morsi autocratically and arrogantly refused to talk to anyone other than his masters in the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters.In order to avoid the stigma of a coup, the military leaders met with a cross-section of the Egyptian population and religious leaders, including Islamists. As a result, they produced a wise plan calling for an election and appointing the chief justice of the Supreme Court as the interim president.But here is the irony: while millions of Egyptians responded to Morsi’s ouster by joyfully dancing in the streets, the Muslim Brotherhood advisors in the White House helped Obama produce anon-descript statement. With his wishy-washy message about those who are democratically elected, Obama confirmed in Egyptian minds that he is in the pocket of the Muslim Brotherhood.It is downright depressing to see the leader of the free world unable to comprehend the Islamic understanding of democracy. To the Islamist, democracy means “one man, one vote, one time.” Once they have their power, there’s no reason to ever have another election.Thank God for the wise and courageous Egyptian people who comprehended that plan and stopped it before it was too late.And thank God for the persecuted Christians in Egypt who have cried out to God while withstanding injustice during the reign of the Muslim Brotherhood. As a committed Christian, I believe God has heard their cries, even when President Obama covered his ears. They have set an example for every harassed believer in the world, including in America, to pray and hope that God will hear our prayers.

          That’s an auful lot of if,s ! I wouldn’t hold my breath. What good does wishful thinking and being a denialist really do? Face the fact its over gone done for. no point in beating a dead horse. The USA had a little over a 200 year run. Now the once great Republic is well into decline. We are long past the point of no return. There are no viable political or ballot box choices & solutions. Petitions don’t & wont help. The framers petitioned the british King with their greviances to no avail. It was guns and death to the opressors of freedom that was the final solution. Prep and do what you can and hope for the best. If you can feed yourself you might avoid being rounded up and placed in a FEMA prison. That how they rounded up the Native Americans. They starved them into submission. Even Gernimo was starved out and surrendered. He spent his last years in a 6×8 jail cell.

            I agree, I do not understand why so many people are wishful thinking. Egypt is not the US. And besides Egypt’s economy has tanked, so have tourism and several hundred people have been killed during that whole debacle that still continues today. There will not be peace for the Egyptian people for a long time. The streets are in great mayhem.

      Egyptian Egg on Obama’s Face

      Jul 07, 2013In 2011, President Obama quickly called on President Mubarak to acquiesce to demonstrators’ demands and leave office.With Mubarak out of the way, Obama proceeded to support the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, who succeeded in stealing the revolution.Obama’s support extended to an ex-con named Muhammad Morsi. By his own admission, Morsi was in prison during the January 25 demonstration. But he was in contact with members of Hamas, who broke into the prison and freed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood prisoners.When Morsi ran for the presidency, Obama continued to support him, even when it was clear that the close election was rigged by dubious tactics.With six possible Muslim Brotherhood operatives working in the Obama administration, and Obama’s full-fledged support of Morsi, you would think that Egyptians would be in love with Obama. But the deeply troubled Egyptian public is in no way enamored with this White House. Quite the contrary.More than 40 percent of Egyptian citizens currently must survive on about $2 US per day. Lines to purchase gasoline stretch on for hours. The lines for a tank of propane—needed for cooking and other necessities of life—extend for up to nine hours. Electricity is cut off from 2-3 hours per night.When the Egyptian masses finally couldn’t take it anymore, 22 million people signed a petition to recall Morsi’s election—more than twice the number of people than originally voted for him.Then something totally unprecedented happened: 30 million people took to the streets. The largest mass demonstration in human history.The Egyptian Army had tried on many occasions to mediate between President Morsi and the opposition. But Morsi autocratically and arrogantly refused to talk to anyone other than his masters in the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters.In order to avoid the stigma of a coup, the military leaders met with a cross-section of the Egyptian population and religious leaders, including Islamists. As a result, they produced a wise plan calling for an election and appointing the chief justice of the Supreme Court as the interim president.But here is the irony: while millions of Egyptians responded to Morsi’s ouster by joyfully dancing in the streets, the Muslim Brotherhood advisors in the White House helped Obama produce anon-descript statement. With his wishy-washy message about those who are democratically elected, Obama confirmed in Egyptian minds that he is in the pocket of the Muslim Brotherhood.It is downright depressing to see the leader of the free world unable to comprehend the Islamic understanding of democracy. To the Islamist, democracy means “one man, one vote, one time.” Once they have their power, there’s no reason to ever have another election.Thank God for the wise and courageous Egyptian people who comprehended that plan and stopped it before it was too late.And thank God for the persecuted Christians in Egypt who have cried out to God while withstanding injustice during the reign of the Muslim Brotherhood. As a committed Christian, I believe God has heard their cries, even when President Obama covered his ears. They have set an example for every harassed believer in the world, including in America, to pray and hope that God will hear our prayers.

      Of course socialism will lead to collapse. Its basic math, how can you add 1 unit of demand on one side, and add 0 on the supply side (the person has the cash to buy things but isnt producing anything for society) People, this thing will collapse, make no mistake about it.

      I even bought this prepper/survivalist mindset game to get me and my buddies ready, I read the FAQ and the stuff about it, I cant wait to get it, here it is. http://conflictedthegame.com/

      And to be honest, I cant wait for the collapse either, its the only thing that will let us reset this circus we call monetary system.

      The fact that Obama was elected to a first term illustrated how accomplished an empty suited bullsh*tter he is, and how gullible the majority of the American sheeple truly are.

      The fact that Obama was elected to a second term illustrated how far up the creek without a paddle we truly are.

      For those of you who didn’t figure it out, Its the mexicans taking away your jobs and that is why they are not reporting it. Even the green card ones are illegal because they get the card thrown at them now because of the amnesty bill and its im the obamacare. States corporations can get huge tax cuts by hiring illegal aliens even the ones who claim they are legal whom hold the green card. but since they didn’t work to get that card they are still illegal.
