Government will take every penny
you´ve earned so far this year:

Washington Times, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/8/2014 5:18:32 AM

As Americans celebrated this nation´s birthday on July 4, most were likely unaware of a less uplifting commemoration that fell on the calendar during the same holiday weekend. That was Cost of Government Day, or July 6, 2014. The date´s significance is one of political math and symbolism. By the time 2014 ends, local, state and federal governments will have consumed the equivalent of every dime of national production created between New Year´s Day and July 6. The money goes to government spending and regulatory compliance. Americans have only from Monday until year´s end to produce anything for themselves. The concept

This is only the beginning. Fortunately for us, we will be retiring in the next two years. But our gov has spent the money they took from us throughout our 45 years of working..and stuffed it into their pockets....that´s why none of us will have Social Security when we all retire. You can bet on it. They are thieves! They twist and make up laws to support their thefts..both Republicans and Democrats.,..this is why this nation is a mess..and they don´t care (which is so obvious). But once we do retire, they cannot steal (as much) from us as they have for the past 45 years. And it´s going to be much worse for you guys who are still working.

Actually, the gov´t has taken your money and stuffed it into the pockets of people who don´t work to support themselves.

The middle class are slaves: we work, someone else enjoys what we produce even as they produce nothing themselves.

America´s founders were clear on the need for government as an essential element of a stable, prosperous society.

....contrary to what is being taught in our schools to little kids who grow up to be big-government socialists.

When formed and run properly, governments are essential guarantors of human rights, freedom of commerce and social stability.

I doubt many people disagree with that.

But government can also grow large enough to defeat these noble purposes.

That is what has happened. We are becoming less stable, less free, and less prosperous. The present foreign and immigration policies (flimsy slices of Swiss cheese) have made us less stable. The present work climate has made us non-prosperous: Too few able-bodied people are working and too many jobs have vanished into the black hole of Obama´s policies.

The founders would surely be appalled at the oversized federal government now devouring half of the value of Americans´ productive labor.

It was never set up to be this way. It was set up to be precisely the reverse: small government by the consent of the governed. We have not given our consent to be governed this way. A small minority within this Administrationhave, through regulatory Agencies, co-opted the entire economy of the United States.

....continued

Their goal is to reduce the standard of living of every American so that they can no longer accrue wealth and will be forced into government dependency.

Right now, HALF THE COUNTRY is on some form of govnerment assistance. That is our tipping point. And half the earning power of each individual who is working is taken away.

When half the country who depend on government assistance and who vote Democrat are the majority of voters, we no longer have a prosperous nation. We have a nation in decline. Our once envied and glorious freedom and economic possibility have become like other socialist countries, no better than they and worse than some.

And that has been and still is the goal of Barack Obama and those who support him, whether they know it or not.

Every vote for a Democrat is a vote to reduce America´s standard of living, which affects every human being in this country. We are becoming oppressed the larger government gets.

Republicans are doing little to stop government growth. They are close to being equally culpable in the decline and fall of America.

It´s sickening.

At its core, the way the system has become, especially under Obama, is to reduce the individual wealth (read income) of everyone in the country. The standard of living, once described as the highest in the world, has come tumbling down.

Individual Federal income tax does not go to fund any services of the government, but goes directly to the Federal Reserve to defray interest on the debt.

Many people do not understand that the government has no money of its own. They think of government money as supplying "free" thing from some endless supply. That the workers of the country are paying for their free stuff never gets through to them. The first thing the communists took over was the school system. Read David Horowitz´s books. His parents were teachers for a reason.

The search is on for two presenters to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s daytime chat show, while a backstage battle for control has left Barbara Walters out of the driver’s seat. When ABC’s long-popular daytime program The View returns in September for its 18th season, creator Barbara Walters will no longer have an ownership stake, and longtime executive producer Bill Geddie won’t be at the helm. “He won’t be back,” a person familiar with the inner workings of the show told The Daily Beast, confirming one of the major changes--including the enforced departures of panelists Sherri Shepherd

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters. (The New York Times was scandalized at the time, though I strangely can´t find their editorial calling for Kathleen

Google responds to problems with

NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google. "I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Poll: 1 in 6 say immigration
is nation´s top problem
The Hill [DC], by Rebecca Shabad    Original Article

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

A Dose of Common Sense for Detroit

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price. (Of course, auctions often break

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

Is The TSA The Most Monstrously
Incompetent Agency In History?
The Federalist, by Daniel Payne    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:28:28 AM     Post Reply
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights
Daily Caller, by Jonah Bennett    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:26:29 AM     Post Reply
The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Jose Antonio Vargas and
the End of Driver’s Licenses
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:10:05 AM     Post Reply
CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

Flow of Central American immigrants

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
