Americans face higher
prices, flat wages in 2013

Des Moines Register [IA], by Victor Epstein

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/6/2013 6:23:38 PM

Des Moines, Iowa — The new norm will be the same as the old norm for most American households this year: financial suffering and a continued slow recovery from the Great Recession. Americans can expect price tags for many goods and services to increase faster than take-home pay again this year. Higher costs are expected for food, airline flights, rent, housing prices, government fees, shipping costs and college tuition. While gasoline prices are expected to fall by a small amount, they´ll do so after two consecutive years of record prices at the pump. Many households will be confronted by the additional

Comments:
No problem. We´ll gladly starve in the streets, homeless, savings and investments drained, blaming "Bush" all the way; the important thing is that we have a cool intellectual stateless mystery man in the White House.

Also, so nice of the media pundits to push rainbows and sunshine on the stupids, until after the election.

Maybe the Obama lovers are smarter than we thought. They get an endless array of tax-free benefits, plus lots of free time to do a little off-the-books hustling on the side.
The vast, hard-working middle class gets to struggle along juggling work, paying ever-higher bills, and hearing about Obama´s ceaseless vacations, celebrity-a-thons, and supposed political craftiness.

Out here in the real world,we have seen TREMENDOUS inflation in the last 4 years or so: groceries (!), gas, local taxes, insurance premiums, tires and oil for the car, cellphone bill, local tv/internet, etc. WAY above any increase in wages (I haven´t had a pay increase in 5 years! My husband, fortunately, has gotten a hefty raise, or we´d be in big trouble.)

My company has limited raises to 2% for most of the 9 years I´ve worked for them, 3% if you invent fire. That alone has made us lose ground every year for the last several.

In the 2014 election year the question posed to voters must be: it´s been 6 years, is it still Bush´s fault?

We are getting a lower standard of living and it will get lower as a result of debt load brought to us by your local politician.

It is what you get when you focus on dragging down the successful instead of growing the overall economy. History is replete with real cases and we are crazy to stay on the road to serfdom we currently travel.

Cronies and sycophants are the only winners.

"Let me be clear. I just vacationed in Hawaii, and my airfares and my limo service, even with a rude interruption, didn´t cost me a thing. I don´t know what you Americans are complaining about. I had a great time, golf, lots of golf, and I didn´t spend a lot of money. Nor, come to think of it, did I spend a lot of time with the wife & kids. Isn´t that right, Michelle? If fact, I plan on going back in February once that old white guy, John Bonehead, increases my credit card limit. So, you folks gotta do better in planning your next vacation in Hawaii."

We were so close...we almost had a chance.

For the first time in almost 4 years businesses I work with were upbeat, new ad campaigns and product re-branding plans were being made. Virtually all of that ended Nov 7, 2012.

I hope all the those who didn´t vote because Romney wasn´t perfect are happy. We knew we had to counteract the media cheerleaders and rampant fraud with massive turn out.

The first paychecks of 2013 are starting to come in, the blind followers of the "smartest man in the world" may finally have their eyes opened but it´s too late now.

If we couldn´t get him out of office with this economy in a regular election, what are the chances that no matter what he pulls he will be impeached?

ZERO.

Food is much more expensive, our last heating oil delivery was $4.49/gallon, our real estate taxes have skyrocketed, commuting costs have risen, and my doctor charged me $200 for a five-minute office visit--all on top of no raises for the last six years.

Not to mention that our now-meager savings are earning less than 1%.

Who can possibly be surprised, except the clueless dem voter pawns? A vote for 0bama & Congressional dem pols was a vote for higher prices & flat wages. ...It always works out that way no matter what the dem pols´ campaign rhetoric. They always promise the opposite from what they deliver!

Wait until the March reports come out.
Wait until full time employees become part time.
Wait until employees see bigger deductions in their paychecks.

Maybe it´s good they are creating death panels because those on Social Security will live in poverty.

So sick of Zippy harping on the middle class. Either you can survive or you can´t today.

Nearly 40 children have been found with guns on school premises over the last three years, a shocking new national survey has disclosed. Figures obtained from police forces across Britain showed guns and air weapons had been confiscated on 37 occasions by officers - including two hand guns. The other guns included 27 ball bearing guns and seven other air weapons. The figures showed almost 1,000 pupils in total were caught by police with weapons in schools including a Taser stun gun, a meat cleaver, three axes and a cut-throat razor. The total is likely to be only the tip

Trenton - Three people were shot today when gunfire erupted at a funeral at the Galilee Baptist Church in Trenton for a 19-year-old man killed in a shooting earlier this month. Two men are in stable condition at Capital Health Regional Medical Center after being taken by ambulance from the church and a woman, who was driven to the hospital, is being treated for a graze wound, said Trenton Police Director Ralph Rivera. One man is in custody and five guns have been seized after police stopped a car fleeing the church, Rivera said. The name of the man taken

Montgomery, Alabama — Less than three months before the June primary, four Alabama counties had more voters on their rolls than what the Census Bureau says is their voting age population. Officials give a number of reasons for that, including under-counting by the census. Secretary of State Jim Bennett said the discrepancies create opportunity for voting fraud. “Every duplicate name and every bad address is just an opportunity for crooks to attempt to manipulate our elections,” Bennett said. Each county has a three-person board of registrars that is responsible for maintaining the voting lists with help from the secretary of

New York City — A belligerent bus rider who was caught on camera attacking a pair of senior citizens received a taste of street justice from fellow riders, who took him down and tossed him onto a sidewalk. The nearly 2-minute video starts with a straphanger verbally assaulting a woman sitting down in the bus’ priority seating. He goes on an expletive laden, sexually derogatory tirade, gradually moving closer toward the victim. Soon after, a rider with a cane stands up to defend the woman and the attacker pounces, knocking the man’s cane from his hand. That’s when several riders sprang

With the bells of Notre Dame heralding a glorious Easter Sunday morning, a tourist uses a cash point a short stroll from the ancient Paris cathedral. Within seconds he is surrounded by an aggressive gang of Roma sneak thieves, who make no secret of what they want from him. Feeling hands on his back and arms, the middle age man turns around in horror to see the utterly fearless gang casually trying to help themselves to his money. Such scenes have become so common in the French capital that police last week called for the ´systematic eviction´ of Roma.

Four teens and a 12-year-old were busted Monday after mugging three people in Central Park, police said. Police said the boys first struck about 5:15 a.m., confronting a 31-year-old man jogging in the park on the Fifth Ave. side near E. 95th St. The youths, one wielding a small wooden bat, demanded the man´s money, cops said. When the victim resisted, one boy punched him in the face and then took off with the rest of the group, police said. A short time later, the gang mugged two women ages 48 and 46, near the reservoir,

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
