The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

1%er advocates that those who don’t pay taxes shouldn’t get to vote

At the beginning of the Republic there was a great deal of debate on who should be allowed to vote.  The primary support for this segregation of voting rights was intrinsically tied to the owning of land, because it gave the voter a stake in the game to not only protect what they owned, but to assure the future welfare of the nation as a whole.  This form of voting was eventually shot down as it was considered a Poll Tax, and was deemed unconstitutional.

However, as the nation once again becomes divided by those who work and pay taxes, and those who don’t and collect welfare benefits, an outspoken 1%er named Tom Perkins came out on Feb. 14 and made the argument that those who pay the most taxes should have the largest say in who is elected to government, with votes being given dollar for dollar in how much they provide the government in revenues.

Unemployment rate soon to drop below 6% as 1.4 million people lose benefits

The government is never interested in facts, it is only interested in truth… and especially truth that makes their policies and agendas look good.  Which is why America stands on the brink of having 1.4 million jobless workers no longer be recognized in the economy, and the Obama administration potentially claiming a false victory as the unemployment rates could drop below 6% for the first time in several years.

Rick Santelli: It's better to be on disability than to work at minimum wage

On March 26, CNBC reporter Rick Santelli uttered the words that many in the alternative economic media have already known.  Welfare and disability pay more than working an average minimum wage job.

For someone in the mainstream to finally get it, and actually report it, is always a turning point in the propaganda media when they finally have no choice but to report the obvious.

CNBC's Rick Santelli notes, Disability payments (of which there are 14 million people covered in the US - none of which count towards the unemployment rate) pay around $13,000 per year (versus $15,000 for minimum wage work). However, Santelli exclaims, the people on disability get healthcare; and this program costs the US $300 billion per year. Is it any wonder that only 1% of those who were on disability in Q1 2011 have left? Santelli comments, "I'm not saying there aren't people that are on disability that shouldn't be, but much of it is illnesses like back pain... it's a judgment call," adding that, "without incentives, large issues go ...totally unfixed." - CNBC via Zerohedge


So we will go back to last November when a chart created by the Secretary of Public Welfare, showed that someone making $29000 will receive more in take home government benefits than another worker making $69000 after taxes (which go to the person making only $29000).

The top 10 states not to invest money in

Back in November, Forbes magazine did a study of the top 10 (11) states which investors should not invest money, or build a new business in, and that have welfare rolls so vast, they have more takers than earners to provide for the system.

Below is the list in order of best of the worst, to cash out now.



Number 11 - Ohio Taker ratio: 1.00The battleground state has a fiscal standoff between takers (people collecting welfare, a government salary or a government pension) and makers (private sector employees).

Number 10 - Hawaii Taker ratio: 1.02Dark clouds over Waikiki Beach: Hawaii has slightly more takers than makers.

Number 9 - Illinois Taker ratio: 1.03Dubious ex-gov Rod Blagojevich personifies what's wrong with this state: Too many goodies promised to insiders. Unfunded pensions contribute to the balance of 103 takers to every 100 makers.

Number 8 - Kentucky Taker ratio:1.05Twilight in Lexington. People drawing from government slightly outnumber people chipping in with private-sector jobs.

Number 7 - South Carolina Taker ratio:1.06Riptides on Folly Beach.

Number 6 - New York Taker ratio: 1.07Blackout in the Flatiron district after the hurricane. Manhattan still has a vibrant financial sector. Manufacturing there is extinguished. Causes: taxes, unions, regulations and cheap apparel workers abroad.

Number 5 - Maine Taker ratio: 1.07

Casco Bay, Portland. This is a state with a beautiful coastline and a ratio of 107 drawers from the public fisc to every 100 contributors.

Number 4 - Alabama Taker ratio: 1.10

Cityscape seen from the Vulcan statue in Birmingham.

Number 3 - California Taker ratio: 1.39

California is generous to a fault, at least to state employees and the needy. To private sector employees, who are outnumbered, it is not so hospitable.

Number 2 - Mississippi Taker ratio: 1.49

Flooding near Tunica in May 2011. The state ranks second to worst on the list of states burdened by a high ratio of takers (welfare recipients and state employees) to makers (private sector workers).

And The Worst State to live in or lend to is...

Number 1 - New Mexico Taker ratio: 1.53

Wildfire near the Los Alamos Laboratory in June 2011. In our taker/maker ratio, federal employees are excluded from the taker count since their cost is not borne locally. That doesn't save this state from having the worst ratio in the nation.

Welcome to the USA, now here is how to apply for welfare

The Department of Homeland Security is not just about protecting our borders, fighting terorrism inside the U.S., and sexually groping simple people who wish to fly from place to place.  No, the ever expanding Federal agency is now instituting a new program to teach illegal and lawfully applying aliens how to apply for welfare, and to get credentials to hide the existance inside America.


“Welcome to USA.gov,” a website maintained by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), bills itself as the “primary gateway for new immigrants to find basic information on how to settle in the United States” — featuring a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government benefits.

“Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs,” the Web page reads.

“Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. - Daily Caller

During the 1920, President Calvin Coolidge said, "The buisness of America is business."  Today, in 2012, President Obama is telling the world, the business of America is welfare and socialism.

Social Security benefits to reach $65 billion per month to government

It appears to be fortunate for the elderly and those on Social Security that Ben Bernanke implemented QE4evr last month, just as the national debt crossed over $16 trillion dollars.  Accordingly, that additional money is soon going to be needed as on Oct. 2, the cost to the government and to taxpayers for Social Security benefits has now reached $65 billion per month.



-The monthly SS payout is bigger than the market cap of some well know companies, including: Amex, 3M, US Bankcorp, Amgen, eBay and Caterpillar. Goldman Sachs is worth a measly $54b. SS could buy the whole thing with just three-weeks worth of payout.

-The annual cost for SS is greater than the ridiculous monster market cap for Apple. If SS used its muscle to buy big cap stocks, it could buy up all of the shares of Microsoft, Wal-Mart and Google in less than a year.

The annual SS payout is about the same as the GDP of the Netherlands. It is well larger than the output of either Turkey, Switzerland or Saudi Arabia. In 2013 SS will spend more than the GDP of Indonesia, a country of 250m people. - Bruce Kasting

When you add this cost to the 47 million Americans on food stamps, and the over 100 million Americans who receive some form of government benefit, you begin to see why the system has no choice but to inevitably collapse at some point, and no amount of Fed spun money can keep up with the promises and corruption of politcians.

Americas broken down welfare system where millionaires receive unemployment

One of the biggest complaints about any government run system or agency is the sheer size and ineptitude of their bureaucracies.  From paying rents or leases on unhabited buildings, to propping up failed agencies such as the Department of Education or the Postal Service, government waste costs taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollar per year.

So it probably won't come as much of a surprise that a new report on Oct. 2 from the Congressional Reserch Center shows that in 2009, the Federal government actually paid unemployment benefits to over 2370 households that earned over $1 million dollars.



Just because millionaires are people too, and they too can apparently lose their jobs, we now learn courtesy of the Congressional Research Center, that in 2009, 2,362 Americans making over $1,000,000 in income (and just shy of a million people making over $200,000) collected unemployment benefits. - Zerohedge


Through the last decade, government programs have paid welfare to many different people and agencies that did not need it, and fell outside the intended income levels of the program.  But rather than reform these broken programs that cost the taxpayers $billions, more often than not, Congress enlarges these agencies, and puts good money after bad to keep creating the largest welfare state in the history of the world.

Gibsmedat update: Food stamp user cuts retailer for not selling him alcohol with EBT card

The Daily Economist is starting a new periodical called the Gibsmedat update.  The first update, concerns a food stamp recipient who slashed a retailer in New York City with a knife because the cashier would not sell him alcohol using his EBT card.

Official Gibsmedat Currency
A drunken man reportedly slashed a Brooklyn clerk’s face after being told he couldn’t use food stamps to buy a bottle of beer.

“Sell it to me,” the suspect told Ali. “Don’t get me mad.”

The suspect was described as a black man between the ages of 25 and 30 with short black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing black jeans and a white T-shirt. -
Fox News


History shows that people do not respect what they don't earn, and as time has passed, food stamp usage has gone from a few needy Americans in poverty, to now over 46 million.  It is no longer a stigma, but the mainstream, and as such, the respect for welfare benefits has moved into the realm of gibsmedat.

President Obama intimates First Lady should get paid for office duties

It is bad enough when the American people have shelled out millions of dollars for the office staff for the first lady, but now President Obama thinks that his wife should be paid a salary for the traditionally ceremonial title and office.


President Obama thinks his wife should be paid for the privilege of serving as first lady. Speaking at a campaign event in Denver on Wednesday, Mr. Obama invoked Mrs. Obama’s plight to make a point about equal pay for equal work. “I want to make sure that when she’s working, she is getting paid the same as men,” he said. “I’ve got to say, first ladies right now don’t, even though that’s a tough job.” Poor Michelle, we feel her pain. - Washington Times

As this would be the first time a President has ever suggested that taxpayers pay his wife for living off the taxpayer dole, you have to ask the question.  Is this a Chicago thing, or is it an example of the liberal welfare mentality?

Gibsmedat!

Escape from California (Before it's too late)

The once breathtaking and economic marvel known as the state of California, which boasted the 8th largest GDP in the world, has become a cesspool of liberal ideologies, anti-business sentiment, and a psychopathic montage of finding new ways to screw their citizens.



In a breakdown of the decline of the state of California, the End of the American Dream broke down 16 different areas where Californians are running out of time to either escape from the coming disaster, or be consumed by it.

We will post just a few of the reasons here.



#2 California Is A Horrible Place To Do Business

For seven years in a row, CEOs ranked California as the worst place in the United States to do business. Thousands of good companies have left the state in recent years, and yet California lawmakers continue to pile on more rules, regulations and taxes.

#5 Desperate Municipalities Are Severely Slashing Government Services All Over The State
When you have no more money, you have to start cutting somewhere. In many cities in California, government services are being curtailed dramatically. Just check out what is going on in Costa Mesa....

Costa Mesa, a city of 110,000 south of Los Angeles, has slashed its payroll from 611 to 450. It is selling its police helicopters and has hired a neighboring city for air patrols. It's also pursuing a controversial effort to convert to a charter city from a general law city, which would give City Hall more power to outsource more work, said councilman Jim Righeimer.

 #7 California Has Some Of The Highest Tax Rates In The Nation
The last thing many California taxpayers want to hear is that taxes might be raised again. Californians already get absolutely hammered by taxes. California has one of the highest state income tax rates in the nation, one of the highest sales tax rates in the nation and the highest gasoline tax rate in the nation.

Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before the politicians come around for even more.

#8 Poverty Is Absolutely Exploding In California
Once upon a time, California was viewed as a land of great opportunity.

Now it is a land of crushing poverty in many areas.

Sadly, the number of children living in poverty in the state of California has increased by a staggering 30 percent since 2007.

In addition, 60 percent of all students attending California public schools now qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches.

#11 California Has Some Of The Worst Schools In The Nation
Many families are moving away from California because the public schools are absolutely nightmarish. The truth is that California has some of the worst schools in the entire nation. In the late 70s, California was number one in per-pupil spending on education, but now the state has fallen to 48th place.

#14 California Has One Of The Worst Health Care Systems In America
All over California, hospitals are shutting down. A big reason for this is because of the massive numbers of poor people and illegal aliens that are taking advantage of "free" medical care at hospital emergency rooms. A number of good hospitals have been forced to shut down in recent years and now the state of California ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.

When corrupt and liberal politicians are allowed to run wild over a city and state government, the results are inevitable.  Detroit, New Orleans, Cleveland, and now, the entire state of California.

Americans independence wanes as more people rely upon government than ever before

The Heritage Foundation just completed a new study on government spending, and 18 other critical areas where cost and dependence by the American people on government welfare and subsidies over self-reliance is at the highest point in history.

The Index of Dependence on Government generally works the same way. The raw (unweighted) value for each program (that program’s yearly expenditures) is multiplied by its weight. The total of the weighted values is the Index score for that year.
The Index is calculated using the following weights:
  1. Housing: 30 percent
  2. Health Care and Welfare: 25 percent
  3. Retirement: 20 percent
  4. Higher Education: 15 percent
  5. Rural and Agricultural Services: 10 percent
The weights are “centered” on the year 1980. This means that the total of the weighted values for the Index components will equal 100 for 1980, and 1980 is the reference year in comparison to which all other Index values can be evaluated as percentages of 100. - Heritage Foundation


With the scale going nearly exponential since 1980, the chances of a reversal become much slimmer as more people turn towards government than every before in their daily lives.  This chart can almost parallel the climb in National debt since the baseline year, and as such, the collapse of the economic structure will most certainly come at a time when the government no longer can afford to pay so much in welfare and benefits.

15% of GDP spent on welfare to more than 50% of Americans

There is one thing to create safety nets to help those down on their luck, or in transition from one stage of life to the next, but there is another where a society has become so apathetic that it requires 15% of all production to be given out to those who do not produce.

The single most disturbing statistic: in 2011 nearly half of the population lived in a household that receives some form of government benefit, which in turn accounted for 65% of total federal spending, or $2.5 trillion, and amount to 15% of GDP. And yet some people out there still think these people, long since indoctrinated to do little but mooch off the welfare state… - Zerohedge

To all the bleeding heart Occupy Wall Street characters... very soon, your mooching off Uncle Sam will lead to a complete breakdown of the system.  Then who will support your life of protesting?

Occupy Wall Street thugs and 99%ers trash local businesses

Oh, those whacky Occupy Wall Street thugs and well doers.  All those speeches about the 99%ers, and how its the 1% rich who are the real crooks and thieves appear to be just rhetoric for victims and thugs to co-mingle out in a park and try to appeal to the ignorant masses that they are simply being kept down by the man.

And like the recent stories about physical and sexual abuse by the groups on women, we can now add violence and property damage to businesses around the parks where the Occupy people expect everyone to give them anything they want.

A business owner near the Occupy Wall Street encampment claims she has been repeatedly harassed and threatened with bodily harm by protesters after she and her employees refused to give in to their outlandish demands.
 “I’ve been told, ‘Watch your back!’ 10 times,” Stacey Tzortzatos, owner of Panini & Co. Breads, located across from Zuccotti Park, told The Post yesterday.
 She and her employees are terrified by the constant threats, which she said began after she demanded the protesters stop using her shop’s restroom as a place to bathe every day.
 The final straw came about two weeks ago, when the demonstrators broke a bathroom sink, flooding the shop, and clogged the toilet -- setting her back $3,000 in damages. - New York Post
As time passes, more and more the poor desperate 1%ers show their true selves and for many, they are simply thugs, victims, and welfare bums who's sole purpose is not to work for their subsistance, but to take from others and expect everyone to appease them.

Why civil rights leaders make bad politicians and economists

Civil Rights leaders in American are quick to scam bucks from the taxpayer to provide welfare and free largesse to their minority constituents.  The Democratic party has a history of passing massive legislation that has provided benefit after benefit to tens of millions of Americans for not working, or for having children.

So it should come as no surprise that the son of civil rights leader Jessie Jackson would propose a boondoggle of a welfare scam, paying $40,000 per person per year to all the unemployed in the US.

This proposal comes out to $800+ billion per year, and over $4 Trillion in just 5 years.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has offered his own $804 billion jobs plan that calls on the federal government to hire the nation’s 15 million unemployed Americans for jobs paying roughly $40,000 each, and bail out all the states and cities facing budget crises. - Fox News

But then again, that's Chicago politics for you.  Like Barack Obama, who was voted into office in the state of Illinois not by merit, but by finding scandals in his opposition, so to it appears Jessie Jackson Jr lacks the basic intelligence of simple math to realize that what he is proposing... make-shift work pay to 15 million for doing.... who knows what, and is the standard practice of progressives who rarely think before they speak.

"Socialism works until you run out of other peoples money" - Margaret Thatcher

Americans are relying upon government handouts more now than in anytime in history

Even during the Great Depression, not all Americans benefited from a government handout or program.  With 25% of the nation unemployed, this meant that 75% had paying jobs of one type or another.  The WPA, CCC, and other alphabet agencies, coupled with the new social programs such as FDIC, began the course of American welfare that grew under the Johnson administration, and accelerated in the 90's and 2000's under Republican and Democratics Presidents.

That acceleration has now led the American people to be very close to 50/50 on reliance on the government dole.  In a new report, nearly 49% of all Americans rely upon a government benefit in one form or another.

Nearly half, 48.5%, of the population lived in a household that received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2010, according to Census data. Those numbers have risen since the middle of the recession when 44.4% lived households receiving benefits in the third quarter of 2008.

Click for full-size image
The share of people relying on government benefits has reached a historic high, in large part from the deep recession and meager recovery, but also because of the expansion of government programs over the years. - Wall Street Journal

This is something that is very discouraging, because as the monetary systems of the global economy start to fail, and the US government neglects to address its skyrocketing national debt.  Nearly half of the 310 million Americans living today will find it hard, or be unable to cope should circumstances cut off the government spigot, and will lead to a more crime and rebellion, such as was seen in the Middle East earlier this year, and in Europe over the economic riots taking place now.

Nearing the end of the Social Security ponzi scheme

A ponzi scheme is where a program or con must depend upon future contributions to pay those who contributed earlier in the game.  ie... because the US government spent over $3 trillion from the Social Security trust fund in the past 4 decades, the only way it survives is by taxing todays generation of workers.

A new report by the Census Bureau however, shows that the jig is almost up as the amount of people working comes out to a ratio of 1.75:1 for every recipient of government largesse.

There were only 1.75 full-time private-sector workers in the United States last year for each person receiving benefits from Social Security, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Social Security board of trustees.
 That means that for each husband and wife who worked full-time in the private sector last year there was a Social Security recipient somewhere in the country taking benefits from the federal government. - The Patriot Update
So soup for you!
We can all thank the Baby Boomers who proudly voted in scoundrels to propagate the never ending growth of the welfare system.  Now however, as they retire, the younger generations may seek to exact their revenge in a soon to be economic class war.
