Obama: “America Is Poised For Another Good Year”

In a speech at Ivy Tech Community Collage in Indiana President Obama couldn’t have been more proud of the work he’s accomplished over the last several years. Citing official statistics like lower deficits and higher employment he says that 2015 is going to be a another good year.

If there were ever a contra-indicator for how the state of the union will be now that the “shadow of crisis has passed,” this is it:

We’ve come a long way these past six years, since we suffered the worst financial crisis since the great depression.

This morning we found out that America’s businesses added another 267,000 jobs. In 2014 our economy created more than 3.1 million jobs and that’s the best year of job growth since the 1990’s. So all told, over the past 59 months the private sector has added about 11.8 million jobs. That’s the longest streak of private sector job growth in our history.

Meanwhile, our deficits are shrinking… they’ve gone down by about two-thirds. Our dropout rates are down… Our graduation rates are up. We’re as free of foreign oil as we’ve been in 30 years… We’ve doubled the amount of clean energy that we’re producing… A lot of families are saving a lot of money at the gas pump, which is putting some smiles on folks’ faces.

And in the single most hopeful sign for middle class families, wages are starting to go up again.

So, America is poised for another good year.

While it’s easy to pick and choose stats and present them to college students and faculty whose heads couldn’t stop bobbling in agreement, the reality is starkly different from what President Obama has suggested is the case.

As a basic example of the outright conjecture being spewed by our Commander-In-Chief, consider the claim that 3.1 million jobs were created last year. Karl Denninger blows that completely out of the water and shows just why these cherry-picked statistics only tell part of the story:


This change in the working-age population, by the way, means the net job gains are now effectively zero over the last year; the entire last year’s gain is now only 218,000 jobs!

Last month’s household employed number looked to be headed southbound, as did the previous month.  Well, now it’s strongly negative, but what’s worse is that it’s now negative on the household number three months running and at an increasing rate

This is a crap report; all of the so-called “improvement” was due to outright lying via “seasonal adjustment” and what’s worse is that the BLS is now admitting that we put 600,000+ more people into the working age population group last year, almost certainly via illegal immigration, than is normal for a given year.

While Americans’ wages did increase a supposed 2.2% in the past year, and the mainstream media claims that this increase stayed ahead of official inflation, the facts tell a slightly different story.

According to shadowstats.com, the real inflation rate over the last year if we don’t use the government’s fuzzy math is actually closer to about 4.2%.


Thus, while President Obama claims rising wages are the single most hopeful sign for the middle class, what he failed to mention is that we actually lost about 2% of our purchasing power to monetary expansion.

The notion that people now have all this extra money in their pockets because of lower gas prices is likewise laughable. Sure, prices dropped, but according to recent reports it means that hundreds of thousands of jobs are now at risk. Oil related businesses are laying people off and some are facing bankruptcy because of leveraged bets that have now gone horribly wrong. Should gas prices stay low for much longer there is a distinct possibility that all of President Obama’s purported job growth could be wiped out in one fell swoop.

Furthermore, the last thing that Americans have on their faces right now are smiles, because those paltry gas savings that amount to roughly $600 per year are nothing compared to the massive premiums and penalties associated with the forced mandates wrought by Obamacare:


Are we all supposed to clap and thank the President for the $50 we save a month without considering the “affordable” rates we are now forced to pay for health care; rates that for many families exceed $1000 in monthly premiums on top of deductibles of $5000 or more?

Moreover, if things are going so great right now in America, how is it that fully 19.8% of American households were dependent on the government to put food on their tables in 2014?


Last but not least, on the matter of deficits, it’s great that we’ve reduced those over the last couple of years. But what about this gigantic elephant in the room?


That’s $18.1 Trillion in debt and in the amount of time it took you to review this article we added about $2 million bucks to the tab.

If by “being poised for another good year” the President means we’re going to see our money lose purchasing power, fewer people in the workforce as a percentage of the population, a continued increase in our national debt, more defaults on student loans, and rising prices for food, energy and healthcare, then yes, you’d better get ready for the next Big (Ka)Boom!

And by get ready, we mean you’d better have a preparedness plan that includes emergency cash, reserve food storage, essential supplies, and self defense armaments because when people realize just how “great” things are it’s going to get crazy.

    So now you’ve heard it, folks.

    Were doing great and it’s gonna get better.

    And don’t let anyone tell you different.

      Yeah, so now I’m REALLY scared.

        Every time you hear another piece of good news about our national economy ask yourself why do the fed’s continue to print 80 billion per month and why cannot they raise the interest rates?

          BREAKING NEWS: The Saudi Bush Family house of cards is now unraveling regarding who funded the attacks on 9-11. The Saudi’s funded the Hijackers, the Bush, Cheney and Powell Team funded the Taliban $43 Million just a few months prior to the 9-11 attacks.

          The secret 20 pages of the 9-11 Report are going to have to become public. Obama White house refusing to release it. And the American Public and the victims of 9-11 need the truth and be compensated by Saudi Arabia for these 9-11 Attacks. All of this Terrorism is phoney to fleece tax payers. I want to see George Bush and Cheney stand before a firing squad. Treason beyond the most despicable acts against our country. Oh lets see how the Election Fraud Jeb Bush plays out that propagated this Bush Traitor into the white house. Time to put Dick Cheney under oath and testify. And this is why Americans have no faith in our Government until these trator tyrants are fully exposed and put to death.

          • always seemed odd to me that the so called patriot act was written 30 years earlier /they create the problem wait for a reaction then have the solution ready to go .so what is prewritten and ready to go now? nwo?agenda21? wonder what next prearranged crises is not going to go to waste?

              • Genius says:

                Oh and by the way, do any of you ever question who it was a good year for??? Hmmm? He never says who, most people just assume it was the united states citizens. I see a lot of that in speeches. People assume he’s talking about them but he’s not lying because he never said it was good for YOU! Observe this when these freaks talk, never assume unless they say it’s about YOU 😛

      • FuckingPissed says:

        Everyone is good at something. With obamanation, it has to be telling a damn lie.

    • What Obama didn’t say was that the good year wont start until Jan 2016.

      • Herr Oberst says:

        I think you mean 2017.

      • Cara says:

        No what he didn’t say is the same thing he did not say during his campaign. He did not define “change” and the media never asked him! And boy did the US get “change”.

        So what is his definition of “a good year”? Well look at what he has said in the past:
        He wants to destroy this nation compared to what it has been in the past.
        He wants a government run healthcare system and since he has not been allowed to put that in place he said he will put Obama care in place. He has uses this system in Chicago and it was a financial and medical nightmare. He said that eventually the people will hurt so bad from this system that they will scream for it to be removed and they will accept whatever is offered. How is it going so far?
        He wants us to be required to pay so much for home heating and driving that we can’t afford our current lifestyles and cut way back. He wants to remove infrastructure support for rural and suburban areas like roads, fire and police, which pushes us into densely packed urban areas where we are packed into the micro apartments that are rapidly being built in major cities around the country.
        He wants a to use the US military as a club to wage war around the world and he does not even involve Congress but rather gets his orders from ??? and the UN. He “does not want to wait for Congress to pass laws or agree” so he just writes his own laws. And despite this and the may other illegal activities he has engaged in while sitting as President he has remained free of any legal charges.
        He wants to live like a dictator over a country that he hates, gut it from the inside and leave it weak and unprotected so that foreign or local vultures can sweep in and gobble up what is left of the carcass.
        He wants to obliterate the personal freedom, patriotism, faith and community that the US of America stood for. He wants to replace it with a totalitarian communist police state that keeps the majority of Americans in financial bondage while protecting the lavish lives of a very few.
        Check, check, check. By his standards it has been several good years.

      ― Vladimir Ilich Lenin

      • oicu812 says:

        …and that is the truth, when it comes to sheeple and the gov.

        For example, the unemployment rate lie, which gives the false sense of a growing economy.

        When folks that have given up on finding a job and can no longer qualify for unemployment benefits are not counted into the rate…..

        When college grads are not counted as unemployed because they never have worked and therefore can’t qualify for benefits; estimated to be about 25% of all graduates between the ages of 21 and 25, which puts the figure at near 2 million that isn’t counted…..

        When the college grads that are under-employed are not counted, which is about 50% and includes part timers and those that are in jobs that don’t require a college degree; which amounts to about another 3 million…..

        When the non college grad group between 18 and 25, that aren’t employed and aren’t counted because they never held a job previously, about another 15 million or so….

        When the seniors that are semi-disabled and can’t qualify for benefits, aren’t counted, which runs into the millions…….

        When all these numbers aren’t added into the rate, it becomes a statistical lie, because the true unemployment rate would be more like 20%, instead of 5%.

        Not even accounting for the undocumented illegals unemployed, that drain off the system, and fall under the statistical radar.

        Times are good, if you don’t look at the real numbers; like how much income is left for entertainment/vacation/savings, after paying for the basic requirements for everyday living.

        • MXLord327 says:

          Good post!!! Another thing that has been modified under 0bama it the number of new monthly jobs created to signify an expanding economy. Under Bush, the media constantly crowed that if the economy was not producing at least 330,000 new jobs a month, it would not even keep up with the new people entering the workforce each month. Now under this idiot, 267, new jobs in a month is massive job growth showing that the economy is booming!!! What a bunch of effin’ hypocrites….

    • Acid Etch says:

      A lot of you rednecks babble on about your gun collections and how you are going to get this and that.

      Guys, whatever pistol you train with is the one that you need to carry.

      Studies have shown that changing gun models leads to confusion in actual lethal encounters.

      There have been more gun accidents with guns with manual safeties than with modern types. Because people assume the safety is on and do stupid shit.

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        I’d say your statement is true regarding a neophyte. I train with all my AR’s and for instance my Sig556 is different regarding its safety and charging handle than my other ARs. Train with all you have and get it down to muscle memory especially during a stress involved shooting exercise.

        • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

          POd Pat. Yeah I have a Sig 5.56 Swat. That lead thrower is a hellva machine. Piston driven means it does not shit where it eats. The Swiss know how to make weapons eh?

          • PO'd Patriot says:

            Yes they do. A little on the heavy side for an AR, but it runs without a hiccup. Its an early model. FCG is Swiss but the BCG is American.

            • Hammer's Thor says:

              Ditto. Had a 556 Russian Swat (7.62 x 39) for a couple years now. Indeed heavy, but ammo’s cheap ($5 per box of 20) and always dead on. Love to shoot it. Carry pistol is an M11-A1 w/Crimson Trace laser(Sig as well) 9mm. Goes on in the AM with my belt, stays there til the belt comes off at night. Practice weekly, sometimes just draw and dry-fire. Live in the woods so I can practice quick draw w/o annoying range master. Hope I never have to put those skills to the test, but I practice like it’s gonna happen tomorrow. Everyone should be able to draw and be on target without thinking, because when it happens you won’t be thinking.

            • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

              Yeah, after I loaded up the Rails with all the high end toys, it is a bit heavy. So I decided that would be my GO-TO stationary hammer with the Bipod in the foxhole. Got the EoTech 556 holographic sights with the night vision and the 3.25 x scope. $1100 just for the optics. ha. True Night Vision is on my bucket list. Next month.

    • hammerhead says:

      SIX –
      The whole reason we no longer have alot of small family farms is subsidies.
      These are for the big factory farms and the small operation seldom see’s anything other than crop protection .
      I say , throw it all out and let farm operations stand on their own.
      Just like any business , it needs to be profitable to sustain itself or be shuttered. Seems to obvious.

          • sixpack says:

            Farm subsidies can easily become a weapon. If a certain farmer does not do as required, they pull the subsidy. Since the farm was not self-sustaining, it falls. The govt will take out the small family farms, leaving only the corporate owned behemoths.

            • Mountain Trekker says:

              Sixpack I’m quite aware of how these programs work. Along with the bait there is always a hook. At one time I had four farms proir to a divorce, none of which were adjoining to each other, anyhow I didn’t participate in farm programs until they came out with CRP which is a program where they pay you to set aside marginal land for a peroid of 10 years, so I put some land on ONE farm in the program. To make a long story short, after a couple of years they notified me that I had to put all my farms in a program that suited them, if not I not only had to withdraw from the CRP program but I would have to pay them back for the years I had already drawn pay for, which is pretty tough when you have already lost your income off that land and have to pay them back too. Trekker Out.

              • hammerhead says:

                • MXLord327 says:

                  WRONG! CRP is absolutely necessary for wild game. It mandates that farmers not plow and plant all their land. They must leave some with long grass, windrows of trees, and maintained wetlands. Without these protections most farmers would plant every available acre, and species like pheasant would become virtually extinct in North America. Please do some research on the subject.

    And speaking of “good years,” while Cubans struggle on poverty wages, Forbes magazine, which annually compiles a list of the world’s richest people, detailed socialist Fidel Castro’s personal fortune a few years back, reported in Newsmax on March 17, 2005, at $$550 million. He also has a number of lavish homes throughout Cuba, and traveled until his health hit the skids exclusively in a convoy of black Mercedes Benzes. When confronted with this, of course, he noted that all of his money “belonged to the Cuban people” (right, Fidel…that’s why they are sleeping in all those hovels through the country…. and able to call on any of your limousines when a sick Cuban kid needs to get to a hospital, right?)

    As Orwell said, in the socialist workers paradise, we’ll all be equal…. only some of us will be “more equal” than others. Of course, Stalin, Mao, Mugabe, Pol Pot, Hilary, Geo Soros, all the Hollywierd Learjet leftists, ad nauseum could have told the proved that before to the unthinking left…. IF they would ever listen or learn. But, as Talleyrand once said about another era, but which would apply today’s leftists…. “they learned nothing and they forgot nothing.”

    Dr. Marvin Olasky reports, after a visit to Cuba a few years back, that the US allows humanitarian aid into Cuba, but of course it all goes to the privileged few. Cubans tell of a French NGO that donated toothpaste to go to the poor… only to find out it ended up in a US dollar store that the poor can’t even afford to step into. In fact, he says most Cubans have to REGULARLY break the law to buy needed food and health care on the black market… while of course the ruling elite have no such worries at all. It gets worse. Churches distribute medicine and material help to others (which isn’t getting to the poor as the goods are sucked up by the ruling oligarchy) – and then the socialist state threatens these churches with “severe sanctions” – SIMPLY FOR TRYING TO DO GOOD! Socialism can’t STAND the competition, even if it means others have to starve.

    • the renegade braveheart says:

      TEST, everything you posted about Cuba is true. And DON’T get me started about the Castros because I wouldn’t know how to stop. When Fidel finally dies, I will celebrate. My wife lost part of her family to Castro’s butchers.

      The most wealthy of the Socialist countries is best seen in the city of Hong Kong, actually a country within a country.

      It boasts one of the wealthiest per capita incomes, and economic centers, after New York City and London, but, with the most severe income inequality.

      What most people don’t know is that Hong Kong was under British control until June 1997.

  7. TEST says:

    … and then there is this apocryphal but instructive story that would well fit today’s limousine liberals, Learjet leftists, and rich Hollywierd socialists:

    In the story, Leonid Brezhnev’s ancient mother came for a visit once when he was leading the USSR. Leonid proudly showed off all that he had to her – multiple sumptuous dachas, a fleet of Zil limousines, marble floored and gold plated personal bathrooms, and so much wealth and possessions the average Russian could only dream about in their wildest fantasies.

    When Comrade Brezhnev finally finished showing grandma around at the very end of the day, and his executive retinue, servants and sundry personal support staff had left, his wrinkled grandmother pulled him aside, and – after glancing around every which way very, VERY thoroughly – she whispered in a tiny, furtive voice in his ear:

    “This is all very fine, but…. WHAT IF THE COMMUNISTS COME?”

    Socialists won’t get this, of course.

This person writing here can make one promise I will not be boarding any Boxcars as long as I have a pulse.
      Recent pending legislation reveals this THEY ARE TRYING TO REMOVE ANY MEANS OF RESISTANCE AND DEFENSE FROM THE PEOPLE ANY WAY THEY CAN. New bills introduced into congress banning body armor and night vision gear validates this , both are defensive in nature , I don’t think it’s going anywhere with this congress biut you never know . Today there is going to be a mass protest in Washington state against the new anti gun legislation Voted into law in the dead of night ( Bloomberg ) people are going to march on the state house armed today . You know it will never be shown on the MSM . Sooner or later these events are going to be to large to hide by non coverage , then it may get sporty . Also the big lie about the recovery will no longer be kept secret it going to effect every one of us on varying levels. Beware of the ides of march .

      Carefully and realistically access your preparedness plans , get your gear in order , know what you can carry and do , test it , live , work to improve it . You. May only be able to keep only what you can physically carry in an extreme event . Do what you have PROVEN you can do not what you think you can do you don’t know what you don’t know. There are many resources available othe web about rucking ( Defensive Training Group , Max Velocity Tectical , Mosby , ETC that have a wealth of information USE IT , LEARN IT , APPLY IT) and get more PT .
      We are at the point of no return , use this time wisely and get your resources while assets still have value to procure preparedness items , train , get in shape your survival may depend on it in the near future . We fight an evil that has been with us since the beginning of time , victory will not go to the strongest or the smartest but to those that endure . Our fight is against powers and principalities beyond our understanding .

    Thanks to the Obama-esque War on Poverty we’ve been having successful years now for decades, right? LBJs $20 *trillion dollar * “War on Poverty” turned 50 not too long ago. So, how’d it do? Well, Detroit was the first large city to sign on (under the sister socialist programme, the Model Cities Programme), used almost a half-billion of your tax dollars. Today Detroit – the city socialism created – is the only city you can walk 12 blocks, and still be at the scene of the crime. Nice work lefties.

    We are now actually up to $22 trillion spent on the War on Poverty, with around 48 million on food stamps, and 100 million not working (this number increased by 10 million during Obama’s first term, see http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-01-13/number-working-age-americans-without-job-has-risen-almost-10-million-under-obama ) and for the first time since 1872, the US is losing to China as the largest economy in the world (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-01-13/number-working-age-americans-without-job-has-risen-almost-10-million-under-obama ).

    A couple years back CNS News at http://cnsnews.com/commentary/terence-p-jeffrey/354-percent-109631000-welfare said that 109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded “means-tested programs” — also known as welfare and around that time then Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack admitted more than a million American kids go to bed hungry. And as a final insult, thanks to the misallocation of wealth deriving from War on Poverty, more businesses close than start up each year (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/05/05/u-s-businesses-are-being-destroyed-faster-than-theyre-being-created/?hpid=z5 ), and the second largest employer in the US is a temp agency (http://washingtonexaminer.com/recovery-woes-americas-second-largest-employer-is-a-temp-agency/article/2532778 )

    (Of course, as Bastiat wrote 150 years ago, socialism is the great fiction, whereby everybody endeavours to live off of everybody else, but that is another story.) And now we have a whole class of people who are utterly dependent (e.g., just one story from CBS – More Than A Thousand Stood Under Heat & Sun For Free Food In Miami – http://miami.cbslocal.com/2014/08/22/locals-line-up-for-free-food-distribution-in-miami/ ) non-producers and impoverished.

    U.S. Household Net Worth since Obama took office:
     Top 1 percent up 1.9 percent
     Next 9 percent up 3.4 percent
     Next 15 percent down 0.5 percent
     Next 25 percent down 16.7 percent

    The poorest American would be considered richer than Henry VIII if comparing material well-being. American’s are rich by global and historical standards. Americans are, however, not the richest people on the planet. The highest living standards are found in places such as Canada, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Singapore, etc. What makes people ‘rich’ in those countries? Well, apart from high incomes and access to material goods (trips to Ikea, modern supermarkets that make Piggly Wiggly look like a third world slop fest), it is the ‘public goods’ they receive that seals the deal: free healthcare, subsidized education, old-age support, government investment in high-tech infrastructure, etc. America spends this money on its military-industrial complex and a web of 900 plus global military bases and a vast infrastructure of spy networks and global surveillance. Just choices. America chooses to run the world. It is that simple.

      Frank, thank for posting this. However, I am the thumbs down. You make a lot of good points; however, as dual US/Canadian citizen. may I say a graciously as possible you are grossly uninformed about the socialist wonderland of Canada, including the old absurd “free health care” piece. That is so (again, I don’t mean to be harsh here) uninformed I don’t know where to start. A year wait for MRIs in Ottawa? Lotteries to find a physician in NS? BC dropping 7,000 people from care and just letting them die, as reported by Dave Eberhard in the Vancouver Sun a few years back? The fact that the Canadian Supreme Court ruled a few years ago that PRIVATE clinics could open as people weren’t getting served in the “free” hospitals well? The list could go on and on and on, but I won’t.

      Yes, the military industrial complex is way off base. You are very, very correct there, and that was a very good point.

      Jag också prata på Svenska, och arbetade med ett Svenskt company. Your comments about Swedish wealth are WAY off base. WAY. Have you been to Sweden? 100 years ago, they were the 5th richest country in the world. Not any more. Worse, in the 1990s, their kroner tanked precipitously, thanks to their stupid socialism. They since improved, and had for many years a conservative govt – as has Canada, under Harper. Norway, except for its good luck of having oil, would be Iceland, or Estonia. Don’t kid yourself.

      Your point about being the military industrial complex is well put and important. Thanks for posting that. However, your apotheosis of these other countries is, at best, misinformed.

  13. The problem is a debt-money system that now encompasses the entire world. There is no political solution short of repealing the legal tender laws worldwide and allowing competing local currencies. Neither left nor right will make any changes of consequence…they are ALL corrupt and controlled by moneychangers.

    The usury function is an exponential one and requires constant growth to service it. Thus the never ending growth of credit/debt everywhere.

    “The Rothschilds and that class of money-lenders of whom they are the representatives and agents…men who never think of lending a shilling to their next door neighbors, for purposes of honest industry, unless upon the most ample security, and at the highest rate if interest…stand ready, at all times, to lend money in unlimited amounts to those robbers and murderers, who call themselves governments, to be expended in shooting down those who do not submit quietly to being robbed and enslaved.”

    Why Venezuela’s condoms cost $755
    6 February 2015 Last updated at 18:13 GMT

    Venezuela – a major oil producer – has been heavily affected by the fall in oil prices on international markets.

    Government taking over grocery chains.

    As a result, basic items are being priced out of reach of average Venezuelans.

    How long before it happens here?

    • the renegade braveheart says:

      Blackjack, you can thank the commie scum President Nicholas Maduro and his predecessor Hugo Chavez for what happened to that country. First, Chavez took the oil wealth and created welfare programs for his freeloading support base, then decided to prop up his commie pals in Cuba, Bolivia, and Nicaragua. Propping up all 3 commie regimes is finally taking its toll on Venezuela’s economy. They’re only a step or two away from collapse. Now it looks like the Castro regime has been thrown a life preserver from the African virus wanting to restore diplomatic ties with Cuba. Raul Castro is already demanding the trade embargo be lifted and to “reparations” for 50-plus years of economic damage ALLEGEDLY caused by the embargo WHEN IT WAS REALLY THE CASTROS’ BRAND OF COMMUNISM THAT HAS WRECKED THAT COUN TRY. RAUL CASTRO CAN GO F#$% HIMSELF.

      • sixpack says:

        “Chavez took the oil wealth and created welfare programs”

        So, that means Chavez took a national resource and applied it to the national poor, rather than sock all of the profits into a huge oil corporation? Is that considered “cronyism”?

        So, in Venezuela, the taxpayers do not support the poor, the national resources do?

    I never voted for obumer and I know most folks are struggling. But in my case this is not true I make more$ than ever before the only people I see that are unemployed are folks without skills. People out there have useless degrees that employers don’t need. Get real world skills that employers need I can’t stress this enough your art degree is not gonna make you any $ these days put down the coloring books and take life serious. Stop trying to follow your dreams employers don’t care about your dreams. They only care that you have the skills to help them. Like the women who think they are gonna be models. I’m not saying it’s not possible but it’s not realistic. These ladies may be nice to look at but how is this translating into employer value. It’s what you can do for an employer . My parents never told me to follow my dreams because it’s just a dream. Like the American dream. Personal economic survival is not a dream this is reality . I drive a truck it’s no dream job believe me but I make enough $ to support my family and save to retire someday. This is reality not a dream people. Learn how to do something that is needed and pays a living wage first then in your spare time follow your dreams prioritys . I’ve seen so many people who follow their dreams never make $ they think their beauty or art is enough. There is no substitute for this. I’ve seen people who lack skills but are highly motivated and the are persistent and succeed in the end. People working at dept stores or fast food is not gonna cut it don’t complain if you stay there and have no$. Oh and know what the industry pays if it’s not enough don’t work in it. You are free to work for less $ if you want but the easy route doesn’t pay good

    • Rebel in Idaho says:

      I agree. Ask most people what they know how to do and they usually return with glazed over stares of “huh?” or might tell you what job they have/used to have.

      If you can’t “find a job” you should honestly consider what skills you have and why anyone would want to hire you. Is there anyone here who can fix any car on the road that can’t find a job? Is there anyone here who has never missed a day of work for any reason (hint: my retired mother didn’t as an RN in pediatrics, I haven’t, and neither has our oldest daughter) who can’t find a job? As ah pointed out, are there any here with a CDL that can’t find a job?

      I’ve had lots of jobs that sucked, often 2 or 3 at a time, but I’ve never been over 8 days without one since I was 14.

      • oicu812 says:

        Speaking of the CDLs and truck driving jobs; there will always be driving jobs for those with experience and good driving records, as long as there is any economic activity at all.

        Why? Because there are too many idiots behind steering wheels of trucks that don’t have common sense.

        Just in our state alone, last year, there were over 700 roll overs of tractor and trailers. Most of those drivers are no longer behind a big truck steering wheel.
        Then look at the fatalities involving big rigs. Most of the drivers found at fault, are black balled and will never get a driving job unless they buy/lease their own rig.

        There are major accidents because of big rig drivers everyday and new drivers are wanted badly.

        I logged over 2 million “accident free” miles during my career, and have since retired. Started out in a cab-over tractor, which is a thing of the past. Missed being in many collisions by using common sense driving techniques. Jack-knived across I-30 west in Texas, on black ice, doing 55 mph. I skidded/slid for so long that my ass had time to let go of the cloth on the driver’s seat and I was partially standing and ready to dive into the bunk,for the crash, when I remembered to go back on the throttle. It straightened right out and I was able to slow down without going off the road.

        I was lucky, but forty-two Big Rig drivers, from Nashville to Dallas were not so lucky during that ice storm of “94.

        There are jobs out there for Truck Drivers, but most unexperienced drivers have to start over the road, with dispatches of a week to ten days, and some as long as three weeks at a time, before coming back home.

        Not everyone is cut out for that kind of living and sacrifice. Stay at it long enough and there “will” be health problems. That you can count on, especially the respiratory issues from breathing all that carbon monoxide from the road traffic. Most thirty year plus, veteran drivers, get some form of cancer, especially if they smoke cigarettes.

    A VERY good year for banksters at JP Morgue (the bank that handles much of this), liar, frauds, and leftist shills.

    Oh yes. Dr. Lawrence Kotlikoff, of Boston U, and formerly a high treasury official under Reagan, states that (last I looked) if you count ALL unfunded liabilities, our debt is not $18 trillion, but – get this $222 trillion (just google his name+unfunded liabilities) to confirm.

    Question: How do you think this will be paid back? Unless we have unheard of, impossible growth (hahhahaha! Under socialism?) there are only three ways: Cut services, raise taxes or print money (you can combine, of course). Cut services? There will be Ferguson riots all over the place, from formerly self-reliant Americans whining for their free lunch; raise taxes? You kill even MORE business… what little there is left. So, while they WILL do these two, and in case you haven’t been looking, they will print even more. There already is a currency war (which often leads to shooting wars), and just this week Denmark, Australia, Canada, etc. cut rates, while China put $100 billion into play by cutting bank reserve requirements.

    The upshot? Do what you can to buy gold or silver, and for goodness sake, DO NOT BUY the ETFs like SLV or GLD. If you absolutely cannot take physical possession, use somebody like goldmoney.com, where your money is ALLOCATED to you, personally. Junk silver is your best bet, tho. Recognizable, available in small denominations (can’t buy a gallon of milk with an ounce of gold), and right now the banksters have is driven down with paper shorts to an unsustainable price.

    If 80 people own 50% of the worlds wealth and assets, you get a fraction of 80/7.2 trillion %, this is nowhere near 1%, it is less than 2 trillionth of a percent.

    Don’t be fooled.

    The media never states who the 80 people that own 50% of global wealth are, and Bill Gates ain’t one of them. Lets think Queen of England, Rothschilds, etc.

    • John_Allen says:

      @ Just saying’

      You make a good point.

      In popular usage, the “1%” can be understood by combining G. William Domhoff’s Who Rules America, which is a longitudinal study of the wealthy in the US and the technocrats who serve them, with Charles Hugh Smith’s essays since about 2007 on how concentrated wealth perverts the political process. Oftwominds.

      The “1%” includes nine groupings or constellations of people:
      Old Money,
      New Money,
      the highest executives of the Fortune 500, most of whose wealth is in owned shares,
      the ruling clique at Goldman Sucks, B of A etc,
      major hedge fund and private capital firms,
      federal and appellate state judges,
      flag rank military,
      media moguls like the Grahams who until recently owned The Washington Post,
      key tenured professors who serve as “talent scouts” at the Ivy League, Stanford, Chicago etc..

      The “out of sight wealthy” are maybe 10,000 families, a few hundred thousand people. Out of sight wealthy means billionaires. They are wealthy from generation-skipping owned assets not from large salaries.

      The “1%” isn’t monolithic. There are factions competing for influence. It’s too large a group for them to all know each other but they travel in the same circles. Share values and a world view, neatly summarized by “We Rule, They Drool.”

    Yesterday, I was informed that 500 American high tech workers in California were laid off and replaced by immigrants from Asia. H1B visas. This has been going on for years. Traveled to San Jose about 18 years ago to interview America IT workers. One of them had a Masters in computer science. He was hired at a large tech corp. He was told by the Hindu that hired him that he would be the last American hired there. His job was to ensure that the immigrants they were going to hire had the qualifications that they claimed they had. If you fly to San Jose California, it looks like you landed in Mumbai India. They know how to work the system real good. They claim to have IT skills in order to get the H1B visas, and as soon as they get off the plane they go to work at restaurants, etc. This is deliberate. Land in Seattle? Looks like you landed in Hong Kong. It goes on and on. Pew Hispanic survey says most new jobs in the US don’t go to Americans, but rather, to immigrants.

    I have a GREAT doctor.

    Since NAFTA and GATT all of the factories here in the Northeast have closed. People used to make things in this country and the factories were the centers of neighborhoods with businesses supported by the workers. Now even those businesses have closed and the neighborhoods reduced to third world hell holes. The factories either rot or become section 8 housing for the welfare class. The corporations that once owned those factories now make twice as much overseas where they don’t have to abide by minimum wage laws, healthcare mandates, or environmental regulations. Treasonous politicians aligned with treasonous mega corporations. the Hegelian Dialectic at work. Prepare now because things are going to get a whole lot worse.

    People any good job gives random drug tests . So put the pipe down and grow up. It’s your own fault stop blaming the gov and the successful. I don’t want to work with a bunch of dopers I worked at these places before they never want to pay these people. They may turn a blind eye to what is going on while your taking pay cuts. The weed is legal in my state so everybody smokes the reefers and it shows in their attitude toward life in general. Most of these stoners won’t speak up about working conditions as long as they can get high. I think the people getting subsidies should get drug tested this would get rid of the freeloaders and only the real needy would be left they gotta reform this

  44. GrandpaSpeaks says:

    GIGO, garbage in, garbage out. There is no truth with manipulated figures and no use pursuing any. The lack of justice is just a side benefit. Anyway, Obama probably believes the figures provided to him. However, our collective use of empirical evidence in real time seems somewhat lacking, seemingly controlled, about providing any basis for truth and consequently knowledge. If integrity is similar to virginity, either you have it or you do not. How are we to cope without integrity, truth and consequently, knowledge? The answer is becoming less clear day by day. Like Kelp swaying in the ocean current. Give in to the sway, resistance is futile. Now embrace those Japanese radionuclides even though they don’t exist. There, there, not so bad. I will tell you of knowledge, do not concern yourself, concentrate on the sway and chant with us, Truth is Terrorism, Truth is terrorism. Oh look, you have a new weird leaf, just let it sway. Many have warned us and we failed to act proactively because of misinformation such as this that officialdom spews. If any future generations are solvent or genetically able enough to ask about their ancestors as to why didn’t they do anything while it was happening? What would we tell them? That in a whorehouse only the cashier has integrity and sorry about that future of yours we borrowed and spent that now you will repay. Will any reset triumph over mans greed and corruption? I sincerely hope so but I have my doubts. Age brings on cynicism, another manipulated fault, for another time. I leave you with this, history repeats because of faults we fail to control. Whether it is a single humans’ nature or the collective human nature is an answer only you can make.

    • Damn, Grandpa, you nailed it…

    • Skeptic says:

      I somehow don’t think that you are the average poster here. If you actually penned that post I wish you would offer up your creds. Thanks

      • GrandpaSpeaks says:

        Yes I penned it, no it is not plagiarized. My creds started the summer of 69. I bought into some of the sixties culture and those I did buy I never sold and the investment grew. Retired and living large off grid now in the Crown of the Continent. It is healthy to be skeptical yet there are predictions and there are for sure predictions. If there is one thing I wish to impart it is the serious nature of nuclear energy and its by products. I very sincerely believe that carbon is being used in an attempt to enslave humanity and that all predication of disaster by carbon works to this end. Mankinds use of nuclear energy will be our end. Both are predictions, only one is for sure. That is why I agree with and live by this statement; “If people knew the truth and had to chose between nuclear energy and candles, they would choose candles”. This is the only site I comment on anymore and I wish to thank Mac and his community of commentators. I wish all the green thumbers could get together somehow. Meet,talk and plan, as it seems apparent to me that kindred spirits will be a very important asset in the years ahead. I choose to live outside the ConUS even though an accident of birth made Sam my Uncle for life I remain a conscientious objector. Close, but outside looking in. Better perspective that way. It is why that now I get mad and disgusted when I reread writings from the sixties. Works like Stewart Brands Whole Earth Catalog. Somewhere the collective got lost along the way. I blame that on greed and corruption. When I get lost I reread Abbey Hoffman or Buckminster Fuller. Hope, the way it was in the sixties, not Obama’s hope and change. We missed that bus and now we are being thrown underneath it. Why do we discount the warnings of George Orwell and dwell on those of Al Gore? Because truth must be sought. It is never apparent, never has been, hidden by greed and corruption. Ponder this, if geo engineering does cool the Earth and brings on another ice age what do we do then? Put oligarchs in the mountain cirques as the ice advances yelling “It is global warming”. That hot air should do it. But seriously we need to cherish those with integrity. Now we don’t even recognize the trait. Heading into the 2014 Presidential election, I told the wife let us watch in real time the way the system deals with the integrity of the only candidate with it. It did and it wasn’t pretty. If you still recognize integrity you will know who I am talking about. As our chance to be proactive evaporated, I have since hunkered a little lower because the rigged system seems too strong and ready to put down any ground swell. To all those here like me who are hunkered down and waiting, who luvs ya baby? May you wait forever.

    People need to thin if was their business would you hire lazy Americans who want big salarys or cheap immigrant help. When you pay for something you want a deal right so do business owners. I would hire whoever was willing to work for what I’m prepared to pay it’s that simple folks. This is the way free market capitalism works. I busted my ass to establish myself so I can work for less and this is coming faster with cheap immigrant labor. Labor is a constant cost to a business if you can reduce the cost of it you can maximize profits . Why is this a crime to people I’m fine with it myself we american workers are overpaid for what we do they can pay 30 china men and get more production. I make less $ now too I’m not special and entitled to more over anybody else. If they are willing to do the job for less and undermine wages then I suffer the hit. I don’t like it really but it is not wrong for a business to do this IMHO. I used to work in a factory years back I made $8.00 an hour come home with $200 a week terrible ha but the people there were in the same boat they weren’t being unfair to just me. It was fair and equal. Well I decided I needed more $ so I looked for other work and went up to $500 a week when this didn’t cut it I got training. I’m up to$1000 a week when this is not enough I will go to college or start my own business. I’m not mad at the factory for paying so low I accepted it. If it’s unacceptable don’t work go somewhere else this is what you do . Wages are paid according to skill level working in a shipping dock is no brain work . Not trying to insult anyone but be honest with yourself people. A good salary is going to take a lot more than 9 to 5 hours some people are on call I’m sure the doctor that delivered your child was happy to come in at 2 in the morn. Or how about that HVAC tech on Sunday morn to fix your burner that shut down. These folks sacrafice potentially important times in their lives to help you out of your situation . They should work for less though right . But hey your entitled to a living wage according too bummer. After all it’s fair and equal.

    I just want to wish all the posters on SHTF the best of luck in future and please continue to wake people up. I have enjoyed debating and the discourse of this site, but this will be my last post and I will no longer frequent SHTF.

    After a few days of contemplation, I have come to the conclusion that Mac is a fear mongering disinformation agent. I have stated many reasons for this before in other posts. Unfortunately, I do not believe there really is any way to be a real patriot and get your message out there. The PTB will not allow it.

    Once again, best of luck to all those here. You’re the ones will be standing on the front lines when the time comes. Thanks for the good conversations, tips, ideas, etc…

    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      Smooth, if you seek complacent thoughts go to a Macdonalds for a happy meal. Comes complete with a fun prize in the box to distract the simpletons with no coping skills for hours.

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        I will add Smooth, go check out some of the other Prepper links listed at the top on the left column. Was reading a few good articles at the “OFF Grid Survival” Link. Just saying this a Go Too, and there are plenty of other links to get the info you seek. No throwing the baby out with the bath water.

    • BigB says:

      Take care Smooth Criminal. If you find another home where opinions and thoughts can be exchanged in such a way as here at SHTF Plan let me know. I have looked but have never found a better place than here.


    • TEST says:

      Here’s a thought. Print out short flyer with the information you want to get out. Make it SUCCINCT, where you can put three or four statements on a page, then use a paper cutter. Leave your comments ALL over – grocery baskets, in magazines as I stand in line at grocery stores or doctors’ office, pinned up in the dressing rooms in Sears or Penny’s, leaving on *thousands* of mailboxes over the years, etc. etc. etc. I have probably left 10,000 or so short documents.

      Negativists such as Smooth will say, “So what? Lotta good that has done.” The point is, my actions are NOT controlled by anyone, and b.) no one knows how that information will play out. No one. It may go down a rat hole, or it may not. Margaret Mead – who otherwise was totally useless – once said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

      I guess you won’t be part of that potential group, Smooth. Whether today’s group realizes the necessary changes for justice and freedom, the point is that they will never kill the reality of those two principles, and even if we go into a leftist dark age, those realities will STILL exist.

      You also dismiss the reality of the Transcendent. If there is in fact a God, He is – unless you are a deist or pantheist (or Buddhist) **active in history.** You need to review CS Lewis’ That Hideous Strength. Today’s PTB are, in reality, fiddling with a real, actual demonic world that they know nothing of. But that doesn’ mean they will be exempt from the darkness of these forces. It’s all spelled out in Lewis’ fictional work.

      Sorry to lose you. However, I am not giving up. The struggle is a non-violent one of education and information dissemination. I woke up due to people helping inform me. I intend to continue that work.

        You might enjoy Frank Peretti’s works, particularly his earlier ones “This Present Darkness” and “Piercing the Darkness”.

        They may be using fictional symbolism -or maybe it isn’t really fictional- but they are scripturally accurate and give a good deal of insight into the supernatural (spiritual) world we can’t directly experience and works and interacts with us.

        I highly recommend them.

        One hand
        Reaches out
        And pulls a lost soul from harm
        While a thousand more go unspoken for
        They say what good have you done
        By saving just this one
        It’s like whispering a prayer
        In the fury of a storm

        And I hear them saying you’ll never change things
        And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing
        But it’s not the world that I am changing
        I do this so this world will know
        That it will not change me

        This heart
        Still believes
        The love and mercy still exist
        While all the hatred rage and so many say
        That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
        It’s like trying to stop a fire
        With the moisture from a kiss

        And I hear them saying you’ll never change things
        And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing
        But it’s not the world that I am changing
        I do this so this world will know
        That it will not change me

        As long as one heart still holds on
        Then hope is never really gone

        I hear them saying you’ll never change things
        And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing
        But it’s not the world that I am changing
        I do this so this world we know
        Never changes me

        What I do is so
        This world will know
        That it will not change me

    Well people it’s tax filing season again hope everyone gets a nice return and is able to take that trip they want or buy the preps they need. We know the gov is a shit pile but we all need to stay on our personal agendas with prepping and all the other things that pertain to surviving the coming shit storm. Never let the gov think your tax return is theirs. It’s your money and you want it now. Just like they want theirs and skim it off each paycheck. Just got my w2 s and gotta set up my appointment with my union paid for accountant. It cost zip for me. It’s good to be in the union even though I gotta pay dues. Let’s all try to forget what the gov is doing and focus on our agenda this is within our power. All this gov and obumer talk is getting old now really folks this is shtf PLAN that’s right PLAN. It’s about sharing ideas that are good and helpful to our cause. People don’t even talk about projects they have done and what kind of success they had. No talk of strategies to meeting daily needs. There are many outlets to hear all the complaining talk radio is the biggest I don’t listen to it anymore the whining is out of control with no countermeasures put forth. I used to like it . We have to stay current on what’s going on so watch the news for a bit and go between news channels to get a well rounded view of things. If you find yourself starting to put up with the complaining turn it off. It’s not good to put up with it for too long let’s be honest it wears you down. I laugh at it now it’s easier than getting all pissed and having your blood pressure go up. Let’s start to focus on what we can do and stop wasting our energy on the bitching .

    Grandpas right we are so far from the truth now we will never get it . The lie is so big they have to put a new spin on it. Go with the flow and try to forcast what is coming down the pipe and take measures to insulate our families . It doesn’t matter who is in charge anymore. I’ve seen things happen I never thought would. Some say times have changed I say people have changed. People used to want to do the right thing. Now people do what benefits themselves. The young people are selfish nowadays this will pass down to their kids too. The future leadership looks grim to me. I don’t have much hope for it. Not much hope for a rebellion either . So socialism is the path of least resistance it seems. This is not what the founders had envisioned.

    Totally agree with rebel in Idaho about fat people being lazy all of the fat people at my work never carry their end of the rope the smokers too always out taking smoke breaks. I go out side and stand around for a few mins if they can go out and smoke I can go and stand around too. Them out smoking comes out to 20 mins extra worth of breaks I want them too. The obese are lazy this is a fact I don’t hire but what the hell are they thinking hiring lazy fat folks. The fat people are always talking about when they gonna eat. Is that all they think about. The ladies in the office are all way overweight and food is always being delivered to the office. Then they wonder why nothing is getting done. This is no way to run a business. A lot of the welfare people are fat you see them the first of the month in the market with carriages full to the top of junk food . Part of the problem yep you bet cha.

    Every time I comment on the lazy fat welfare freeloaders I get thumbs down. I comment on the the crooked gov and thumbs up . It seems that it’s convenient to place the blame on the gov for everything that goes wrong in folks lives. How about taking responsibility for self. Being fat is a side affect of gluttony and being fat usually means you are lazy too. These people who are fat and claim they don’t eat that much are mentally ill or in denial that they aren’t eating too much. You just don’t get morbidly obese by eating like a bird folks . you are taking in more calories than you are burning it a fact the under active thyroid bullshit doesn’t fly. Sitting around and eating is what the welfares do they don’t work. If I insult people I’m trying to tell you the truth. It sounds harsh but a rational person should analyze their situation and take action to attack their problems .i know I’m getting thumbs down but trying to survive needing that many calories in a situation is gonna be selfish to others that need calories to sustain themselves. If your fat you should be ashamed. I don’t hate fat folks but I don’t want to work with them. I do more than my fair share as it is . Go to the gym and on a diet that is doable . For the people who smoke you must be rich because cigs are $9.00 a pack most smokers are a pack a day think about what $63 a week in you pocket can do. But hey you are rich after all and you don’t mind wrecking your health right you got medical insurance. These folks have no room to talk about survival they have already put themselves at disadvantage.

    Just on the news this morn the repubs want legislation to make people who get food stamp Benny’s show a photo ID and the critics are already saying it’s not fair that people should not need ID. This is a small step in the right direction what about drug testing people. If they had to choose dope over food and they chose dope they should starve maybe they will die and drop out of the gene pool. I think this is what should happen we should start a petition to enact legislation to make drug tests mandatory for food stamps . There are rehab programs out there for people let’s force their hand . It’s a small price to pay to get free food. A lot of the food stamp people sell them to the habib store guy for cigarettes all the stuff in the habib store is food stamp bought this ID will make it a little harder to fraud . But what if people know it’s not someone’s food stamp card and do it anyway will their be charges . The whole thing is a fraud anyway the best way is drug testing . This would be a good year for the tax payers. The welfares are useless to society what do they do for the community people there are too many of them nowadays some is ok but the number of the useless eaters is out of control we need population reduction by half at least . I’m sooo sick of carrying dead weight. There is work get off your lazy asses. It’s not that hard to make it .

    Here is something for all the SHTFP readers to think of.

    Baby boomers are people born during the demographic Post–World War II baby boom between the years 1946 and 1964. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the term “baby boomer” is also used in a cultural context

    (April 2014) Data from the U.S. Census Bureau show that there are 76.4 million baby boomers. There were actually a total of 76 million births in the United States from 1946 to 1964, the 19 years usually called the “baby boom.”

    NOW from roughly 2012 the above BB’s started retiring

    Think for yourself if 250000 of the BB’s retire and their jobs are taken by the current mob…JUST HOW MANY JOBS DO YOU THINK WERE CREATED…..Answer below
