'Triple-Dip' Housing Plunge Deepens

Home prices in 20 U.S. cities dropped in March to the lowest level since 1990.

Consumer confidence still skulking at record lows...jobless rate still 9%, wages falling, inflation ticking up, and the debt over $15 trillion.   No  'recovery' ever occurred..

The EU is breaking up, once the full Euro collapse takes place, the US will sink to even lower levels of piddling collapse - voters made a mistake electing Democrats into super-majority power, will they correct it?

Nearly 7 million homes have been lost to foreclosures in the past five years, which means owner-occupied homes are degrading into tenant-occupied. The Fannie Subprime Housing Bubble and Crash has destroyed home-ownership and the economy.

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, along with the Clinton Administration, and the earlier Carter CRA enabled, and protected the full meltdown in housing.  Review US Housing Bubble/Crash, and Subprime Mortgage Crises.

Holder DOJ Cutting Crack Felons Loose

Last year, the US Sentencing Commission amended its guidelines to reduce sentences for crack offenses.

Today, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the Obama administration wants to lower crack sentences now and retroactively.

Such a move would mean reduced sentences for more than 12,000 felons currently serving time for crack-cocaine violations.  The implication are obvious, 90% of crack dealers and addicts are black hence the emphasis on crack-cocaine violators. 

The trend in Holder's DOJ is pretty clear...civil rights crimes are not being pursued if they involve discrimination against non-blacks.  Now the release of primarily black offenders for drugs will feed the already growing unrest in the inner-cities.

The economy is near depression levels.  Blacks are most impacted by Obama's failure to make private sector jobs, and are en masse on government assisted programs soon to be cut or defunded, like Food Stamps, and Section-8 housing.

Crime is down nationwide, but up in the eight largest cities where blacks and Hispanics dominate the population.  The mix of idleness, drugs, fresh convicts, poverty, and gangs will produce new violence and increased crime this summer.

Antietam - Bloodiest Single-Day In US History

The battle of Antietam Creek was fought on September 17, 1862, near Sharpsburg, Maryland, and Antietam Creek.  Antietam was the first major battle in the American Civil War to take place on Northern soil.

Outnumbered two-to-one, Robert. E. Lee committed his entire force. McClellan sent in less than three-quarters of his army, enabling Lee to fight the Federals to a standstill.

McClellan's attacks failed to achieve force concentration, allowing Lee to counter by shifting forces and moving interior lines to meet each challenge.

Though the battle was a tactical draw, Abraham Lincoln took the initiative to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, in part to discourage the British and French governments from expected plans to recognize the Confederacy.

The photo on the right shows Alan Pinkerton,  Union Intelligence Service, Abraham Lincoln, President, and George B. McClellan, commander of union forces just after the battle.

The battle was over by 5:30 p.m. ending twelve hours of savage combat. The Union had 12,401 casualties with 2,108 dead. Confederate casualties were 10,318 with 1,546 dead. This represented 25% of the Federal force and 31% of the Confederates on the field that day.

More Americans died on September 17, 1862, than on any other day in the nation's military history.  Hence the nickname 'Bloody Antietam'.

Consider that this level of slaughter was created using weapons primitive by modern warfare standards - Model 1861 Percussion Rifle-Musket (A single-shot, muzzle-loading gun detonated with a percussion cap, .58 caliber bullet (minie ball), effective range 300 yards).

Today, the battlefield is hallowed ground, managed by the US national park service.

DNC Chairwoman's US Auto Hypocrisy Exposed

Obama appointed Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has ferociously attacked Republicans who opposed President Barack Obama’s bailout of General Motors and Chrysler when she was a congresswoman from Florida.

“If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars,” the DNC head said more recently.  “They would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes.”

When The Hill checked Florida motor vehicle records, Wasserman-Schultz owns an Infinity FX35 — a Japanese luxury car.  Sing together now - H Y P O C R I S Y...

Tax Rate Soars To 62% Under Democrats Plan

If the Democrats get their way on taxes, the top combined tax rate would soar to 62 percent, warns economist Stephen Moore of The Wall Street Journal.

A combination of higher income tax rates, phasing out of deductions, payroll taxes, state taxes, new healthcare taxes, and a 3 percent “millionaire’s tax” would add up fast, Moore says.

Now taxes abroad are falling while U.S. rates are set to rise. “What all this means is that in the late 1980s, the U.S. was nearly the lowest taxed nation in the world, and a quarter century later we're nearly the highest,” Moore explains.

The US now has the world's highest corporate tax rates, after Japan dropped theirs a few months ago.  Moore points out that when Reagan and the GOP Congress under Clinton lowered capital gains taxes, and income tax rates, the US raced to the world's leading economy; created over 35 million jobs in the interim.  Today, under Democrats, the debt is now at record levels, and the tax rates are rising fast.

The trend is clear...Democrats are going to fully destroy the country raising taxes, debt, spending, lowering wages, and printing money leading to inflation in energy and food.

Extortion: DOJ Holds Air Travel In Texas Hostage

An astounding DOJ threat to cancel airline flights to and from Texas has killed efforts in the state to pass HB 1937, a bill that would have made invasive pat downs by TSA agents a felony.

HB 1937, a bill that would have made it “A criminal act for security personnel to touch a person’s private areas without probable cause as a condition of travel or as a condition of entry into a public place,” had passed the House 138-0; then came the federal government.

In a letter sent to Texas lawmakers, including to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Speaker Joe Straus, the House Clerk, and the Senate Secretary, U.S. Attorney John E. Murphy threatened to cripple the airline industry in the state if legislators did not back down.

Following a fiery debate in the Texas House last night, Senate sponsor Dan Patrick (R-Houston) pulled the bill, saying the TSA had been “lobbying” the Texas Senate - kinder words than what it really is, US Government Extortion.

“Either Texas backs off and continues to let government employees fondle innocent women, children and men as a condition of travel,” the Rep. David Simpson staff wrote, “or the TSA [Transportation Safety Administration] has the authority to cancel flights or series of flights.”

The DOJ strong-arm tactics in Texas are more evidence of a growing pattern of dissing state attempts to protect citizens from molestation, and to ignore real threats from Mexico.  Consider that while DOJ is muscling Texas, a congressman witnessed an Arab dressed person pass quickly thru the line, while the elderly, and children continue to undergo the invasive pat-downs.

Here is a short list of Obama violations of the US Constitution:
The end of this presidency in 2012 will be followed by years of discovery, no doubt, of even more law breaking by the regime.

Who Is Herman Cain?

Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, announced he is in the fray for the White House.

"People are sick and tired of being sick and tired of politicians talking about problems and not solving them". On the issues, Cain appears to be a conservative on fiscal, and social issues - the alleged Tea Party favorite.

"The biggest barrier to solving many of our national problems is lack of leadership. Leadership is not being the sharpest knife in the drawer. It is working on the right problem, asking the right questions, and removing barriers to success."

He's never held elected office, losing a three-way Republican U.S. Senate primary bid in Georgia in 2004 with one-quarter of the vote. At present, Cain seems to be have the momentum in an incredibly weak GOP field.  The GOP thus far have only offered retreads, RINOs, and radicals.  Cain is fresh, real, and new.

"I just love him," gushed Laura Miller, a self-described "Cainiac" from Jessup, Ga. "What he says makes so much sense."

A quick look at Herman's bio:
  • Born in Memphis, Tennessee on December 13, 1945, the son of domestic workers
  • Bachelor of Arts in mathematics; a Master of Science in computer science from Purdue
  • Authored four books: Leadership is Common Sense (1997), Speak as a Leader (1999), CEO of SELF (October 2001), and They Think You're Stupid (May 2005)
  • Best known for turning the Godfather Pizza company around as CEO, long career in private industry
  • Member of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City 
 On the Issues:
  • Lower corp tax rates from 35% to 25%, eliminate capital gains tax, suspend taxes on repat foreign profits
  • Cain is a strong supporter of the Fair Tax
  • Welfare "Programs...designed to make people more dependent rather than less dependent."
  • Is pro-life opposes abortion. Life begins at conception. Would defund Planned Parenthood
  • Favors vouchers and charter school systems
  • Cain favors offshore drilling and favors drilling in ANWR. Free-market on alternative energy
  • favors repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. (Obamacare)
  • Cain believes that the US-Mexico border must be secured, no amnesty for illegals
  • No gay marriage, no judicial activism, strong supporter of Israe
Mr. Cain hurt himself, and his causes when he failed to realize that his closet full of skeletons would make him unsuitable for a GOP nominee.  Sad.

Nevada Teacher Tenure On The Block

A proposal by Nevada GOP Gov. Brian Sandoval that teacher evaluations be based at least 50 percent on student achievement data has advanced to the state Senate floor.

The measures to extend a mandatory probationary period for new teachers to three years and send teachers back to probation if they receive unsatisfactory evaluations two consecutive years are among the first measures in the nation to try and correct the abuse of Union Teacher Tenure.

Nevada has some of the worst performing schools in the nation.  The legislature is controlled by Democrats, so any real reform is likely doomed before it gets much further than the Senate vote.

The US public schools are tightly under the control of Teachers Unions, and it shows.  The US spends more per capita than any other country in the world, yet the Science and Math core subject scores are near the bottom of world achievement.  Unions blame parents, and funding.

The truth is much more grim, US public schools do not fare well compared to private schools, using non union teaching staffs, and much less funding per student.  The proof lies right there.  Countless examples of Unions protecting incompetent teachers, and when layoffs come, forcing the oldest, less current and competent teachers to remain sacrificing the new talent.

Until the debate centers on the corrosive, and failed track record of public schools dominated by Teachers Unions, like the AFT...there will be no improvement in public schools...the victims of course are students and taxpayers.  And Unions are always in the center of blocking progress.

Obama Insults Israel - Sides With Arabs

The misnomer "Palestine" has no real meaning, you will not find Palestine on any map, nor will you find a Palestinian listed as a race, or even an indigenous group - like Kwanza, the entire concept is concocted.

Obama expressed an ugly bias and deference to Arabs, Islam, and in general insulted Israel in its struggle against aggressive, brutal Arab perpetrators in Arab countries surrounding Israel.

And Obama acted unilaterally, ignoring Israel and the UN.

Obama endorsed the "Palestinian" demand for a state based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will infuriate Israel, and lose him the support of Jews in the USA.

Obama did this a day ahead of a visit to Washington by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu is vehemently opposed to referring to the 1967 borders.  These borders would leave Israel with a 9 mile wide middle of country that canot be defended.  Israel would be cut in half instantly in any new aggression by the Arabs.

Obama's abandoning Israel today comes at a very bad time for Israel, as Egypt has officially recognized Hamas, and made new alliances with Iran.  Syria is in turmoil.  Libya illegally attacked by Obama, places the USA in the unenviable position of supporting the radical takeover of Arab countries by radical Muslims, like Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama now clearly seen as an Arab-Muslim sympathizer, and an enemy to the existence of Israel itself.

Since the founding of Israel in 1948, Israel has withstood decades of attacks by Arabs.  Two of the most brutal conflicts subsequent to the 1967 war, which Israel also won.  Rolling back land won at great cost in blood and treasure to Israel is an injustice to Israel, and to free people's worldwide.

China Hospitals Deny HIV/AIDS Patients

Do not get HIV or AIDS while in China.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) uncovered HIV-related discrimination in China's hospitals and clinics via interviews with more than 100 people living with HIV.  

In short, a death sentence for Chinese AIDS patients.

According to Chinese authorities, at least 740,000 people have HIV/AIDS, out of a total population of 1.3 billion.  But estimates are likely double that, given Chinese authorities control negative information.

Cost is a factor. Chinese hospitals are expected to turn a profit from their operations, and are often reticent to deal with highly infectious diseases in general, especially ones that are expensive and long term to treat. 

The health care system in China is government sponsored, and in general would be characterized as a single-payer model, much like the model Obamacare would have mimicked had the single-payer option not been deleted just prior to passage.

48 Women Raped Every Hour In The Congo

The African nation of Congo has been called the worst place on earth to be a woman.  The study suggest these results could be half the actual rate give face-to-face interviews were used.

Congo, a nation of 70 million people that is equal in size to Western Europe, has been plagued by decades of war. Its vast forests are rife with militias that have systematically used rape to destroy communities. But the Congo is not alone.

More than one in three South African men admit to having committed rape. More than 51 percent of the 511 women interviewed said they'd experienced violence from men, and 78 percent of men said they'd committed violence against women.

Worldwide, rape by country may surprise, though the leading nation for rape is South Africa, the next four countries with rape rates of nearly 1 in 1,000 are Seychelles, Australia, Montserrat, Canada, and Jamaica.

These sad statistics regarding violence against women, including rape, are tragic.  Nearly 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced such violence. Why are women reluctant to protect themselves with realistic, disabling counter-measures such as tasers, and guns?

AIDS Cure Breakthrough - SF Man Becomes First

A 45-year-old man now living in the San Francicso Bay Area may be the first person ever cured of the deadly disease AIDS, the result of the discovery of an apparent HIV immunity gene.

Timothy Ray Brown tested positive for HIV back in 1995, but has now entered scientific journals as the first man in world history to have that HIV virus completely eliminated from his body in what doctors call a “functional cure.”

Scientists said Brown received stem cells from a donor who was immune to HIV. In fact, about one percent of Caucasians are immune to HIV. Some researchers think the immunity gene goes back to the Great Plague: people who survived the plague passed their immunity down and their heirs have it today.

UCSF’s Dr. Jay Levy, who co-discovered the HIV virus and is one of the most respected AIDS researchers in the world, said this case opens the door to the field of “cure research,” which is now gaining more attention as the ferocity of AIDS in Africa and western nations has not subsided.

Note that the source material did not from fetal stem cells, but cells from another adult, who had a match with the patient, and an innate immunity to the disease.

AIDS prevention has also been making breakthrough advances.  Giving AIDS drugs to people infected with HIV can protect their uninfected spouses and other sexual partners, U.S. researchers report.

O'Reilly: Cindy McCain Should 'Slap' Beck

The McCain Family Hypocrites and RINO Parade is back in the news.

Glenn Beck has been under attack for pretending to regurgitate  on his radio show Meghan McCain was mentioned.

Cindy McCain responded on Twitter: “I’m so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox: Enough vitriol and hate. Glenn, you are no rodeo clown. They are decent and nice. You aren’t.”.  As if Cindy can take the high ground considering her role in hubby John's first marital breakup - vitriol, and hate filled we can be certain.

Daughter Meghan is a Paris Hilton wannabee, who has joined the ranks of the current tawdry crop of post-teen-famous-for-being-famous types.

 A few gems from Meghan the Mouth:  

  • "It's innate racism, and I think it's why young people are turned off by this movement (teaparty)," McCain said. "And I'm sorry -- revolutions start with young people, not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word vote in English".
  • Commenting on the HBO Series featured a four-letter word tired by daddy John, Meghan offered this on here twitter account: "Fuck Game Change".
Ms. McCain was born with a silver spoon, attending private schools, and later getting a history degree at Columbia University.  She is a blogger, and vocal reflection of what must be going on at home.  

John McCain destroyed his party during the 2008 election defeat - for which he and he alone must take blame.  McCain, recall, supported TARP, and has long been known to be a Republican In Name Only (RINO).  McCain has taken liberal stands on issues for decades, and today makes supporting commentary on Barak Obama's presidency, action in Libya, and spending sprees.

Best advise to the unwanted and overly-vocal, Meghan?  Quit trading on daddy's name, and disgracing the Republican Party with your cat-fights, and your disdain for decent, hard working people like Sarah Palin.

Geithner Warns Double-Dip If Debt Ceiling Not Raised

In the grand tradition of scare tactics in politics, few do it as often, or as deceptively as a Democrat.

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said if Congress fails to lift the debt ceiling and the U.S. defaults on its obligations “this abrupt contraction would likely push us into a double dip recession,”.   

Problem?  The U.S. would not default on its ENTIRE bill paying if the deadline is passed.  In fact, very little of the government would be affected.

“A default would inflict catastrophic far-reaching damage on our nation’s economy, significantly reducing growth and increasing unemployment,” said Geithner in the letter.  

My gosh, jobs too?  The kitchen sink in play now.

Ultimately he said the biggest threat would be a crisis of confidence in the United States. Confidence in the America’s ability to meet its obligations creates demand for Treasury securities in the first place, which lowers the borrowing costs for the government and in turn consumers. It has made investments in Treasury securities a safe haven for investors in times of panic.   

Did Timmy notice that the Chinese have been dumping treasury?  Did he also notice that the Debt and Deficits are threatening the very credit rating of the USA?  

It is especially disgusting that a tax-dodging, deadbeat is out with this kind of rhetorical nonsense.  Geithner should be fired, not taken seriously.

US Constitution Shredded By Obama

The Obama Administration is clearly on a quest to shred the US Constitution.  There are a half dozen measures wending their way thru the lower courts, on their way to the US Supreme Court - all due to the excesses of the presidency.

The Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of all that Obama has been up to on both a domestic and international fronts.  Lucky for the country most of the high court is not open to the horrible judicial activism we have seen routinely operate in lower courts, like the US Ninth Circuit.

The Texas House TSA measure makes it illegal for anyone conducting searches to touch “the anus, sexual organ, buttocks, or breast of another person” including through clothing.

Sadly, this bill may also be superseded by Federal Law. 

Georgia on Thursday followed Arizona’s lead in passing tough legislation aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration.  The Arizona law is going to the Supreme Court, finally.

And Obamacare is sitting in the 4th Circuit where a mostly Clinton appointed panel resides.  The ruling by the Supreme Court is expected before the 2012 election.

“A bipartisan coalition in Congress agreed that President Obama was circumventing the constitution by appointing these czars without the scrutiny of Senate confirmation..." Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.). His bill defunds the illegal Czar crew Obama has set-up.

Today, Obama has announced that the illegal war he has in Libya is "open-ended", that it will go on without closure - YouTube - Kucinich: Obama Libya War Violates Constitution.

Some even believe that when Obama realizes he faces a public unwilling to give him a second term, he may attempt to diddle with the election process - would anyone be surprised?

Goof Calls 911 Complains Crack Dealer Shortchanged Him

Police arrested a 41-year-old Dexter White last week after he called 911 and told officers that he was not given the correct change after buying crack cocaine from a drug dealer.

White called 911 and told officers that he had given $60 to a drug dealer for crack and only got back $20 worth of drugs.  White said the drug dealer refused to give him $40 back.

The call was recorded.  White was locked up at the Charleston County Detention Center.

The statistics on illicit drug use are somewhat hard to find, given most do not want to acknowledge the central problem is in the minority communities.  But the ugly truth is, Hispanics and Blacks engage in the majority of drug use, and drug trade in the USA.

Drugs such as Heroin, and Cocaine are near epidemic levels in cities like Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, and Philadelphia.  The link between drugs, and crime is well established.  Worse are the shattered lives drug use produces.

Some even call for legalization of drugs because they feel helpless in the face of decades of struggling to eradicate the problem, ignoring the long-term ill-effects on users.  At what point does the public say enough is enough?  The real answer lies in a much stronger and direct reaction to known drug sources.

For instance, how about a death penalty for drug dealers?  Instead of jailing addicts, lets dry up their supply.  Let us resolve to deal with the drug trade as we do with the wars we fight, harshly, directly, and with deadly force and efficiency.


Crack Pipes Sold In Detroit Dollar Stores, Gas Stations...

Obama Selling GM To China?

Barack Obama  has “agreed in principal” to sell the American governments 61% ownership of US auto giant General Motors (GM) to China’s SAIC Motor Corporation, who has been GM’s partner and instrumental in their success in that Communist Nation and who already owns half of GM’s Indian division.

Obama is “holding off” on the sale of GM to China until after the November mid-term elections due to the “political backlash” he and his Democratic Party would encounter.  So is this in the works?

GM is one of the US Military’s largest defense contractors holding over 150 contracts worth nearly $70 million.  GM is also the company the US Navy is depending on to develop hydrogen fuel cells for an array of underwater vehicles.  The military wants to thaw relations with China, but China is angry over a series of moves by the Obama Administration regarding trade, and the SEC denying China permits to allow its large credit rating agency access to US markets.

If the Obama Administration sells its shares in GM at the current market price, the taxpayers will lose over $11 billion.  If the Obama Administration sells its shares in GM to the Chinese, the implications for national security, and for taxpayer reaction to a president that virtually handed the UAW a giant kiss on the lips, and then turns around and dumps the taxpayers interest in GM handing the company over to a foreign country, spits in the face of Obama's alleged motivation for bailing out GM to save "American Jobs".

Obama continues to disappoint, especially in the area of domestic policy.

NV DMV Worker Arrested Selling Drivers Licenses To Illegals

An employee of the state Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has been arrested on charges of selling more than 200 drivers' licenses to immigrants for as much as $3,000 each.

The department said state and federal investigators booked Nancy P. Brown into the Henderson jail on federal charges of fraud and bribery.

DMV Director Bruce Breslow said, Brown will be fully prosecuted. She was arrested Thursday at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

The fraudulent drivers' licenses are being canceled. The DMV is sending certified letters to the license holders and is alerting other licensing agencies through the national Problem Driver Pointer System.

Drivers Licenses are required in many states in order to vote.  The blue states are lax in enforcing the law which is troubling for US elections.  Hispanics are assumed to vote for Democrats.  

US Obesity Epidemic Punks Medical System

Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater. During the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States where today, fully 60-70% of all Americans are considered overweight, a majority of that number clinically obese.

The obesity-related diseases include coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, certain cancers, hypertension, dyslipidemia (high total cholesterol), stroke, liver and gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, certain gynecological problems, and some depressive disorders.

Obesity data shows blacks and Hispanics have the highest rates of obesity. Blacks had 51 percent higher prevalence of obesity, and Hispanics had 21 percent higher obesity prevalence compared with whites.  Among adults, obesity prevalence increased from 13% to 32% between the 1960s and 2004. Currently, 66% of adults are overweight or obese. 

Costs associated with this sloth-trend impacts all levels of society.  The super-sizing of all forms of American transit continues apace: First ambulances, then buses, and now crash test dummies are having to be enlarged in response to the country's obesity epidemic. 

The medical care costs of obesity in the United States are staggering. In 2008 dollars, these costs totaled about $147 billion (Finkelstein, 2009).  Health care spending per adult (in 2009 dollars) rose close to 80 percent from 1987 to 2007.  The cost delta for obese versus normal adult weight is 30-40%

Obama's health care system is clearly seen now as a way to transfer wealth from health-normal sized adults, to the poor minority, obese, disease ridden members of the country.

Obama "You do not want to get between Michelle and a tamale".

US Middle Class Being Obliterated

The Democrats have been busy trying to tear up the US and turn it into a social-welfare state.  Not news, it began during the Great Depression, FDR and the New Deal spawned many of the infamous and troubled government programs we are saddled with today.

The Johnson Administration deepened the trough of government cheese by launching a "war on poverty" that has clearly been lost, and cost taxpayers trillions.  Johnson's Vietnam war was run without congressional approval or funding, and led to the recession of the early 1970s.  Johnson created Freddie Mac when he pushed Fannie Mae off the government books to cover his deficits.

Fast forward to Carter and Clinton and the assault on home ownership, the Fannie Mae/Subprime housing bubble and crash; has gutted all of the middle class housing equity, along with wiping out generations of home ownership.

The baby boomers are facing a perfect storm of destitution, their homes have been wiped out, and their retirements threatened now that the Democrats have destroyed Social Security, and Medicare, both invented by the Democrats, and raided by the Democrats.

Now we watch as the Democrats and Obama wipe out what is left of the entire middle-class in the USA.

Here are just some of the sobering facts from a recent report by Sherle Schwenninger, director of economic growth and American strategy programs at the New America Foundation who observes the carnage wrought by the Obama Administrations failures:

-- There are 8.5 million people receiving unemployment insurance and over 40+ million receiving food stamps.

-- Middle-income jobs are disappearing from the economy. The share of middle-income jobs in the United States has fallen from 52% in 1980 to 42% in 2010

The bottom line is simple says Schwenninger: The middle class is shrinking, which threatens the social composition and stability of the world's biggest economy.

Canada's Conservatives Score Massive Election Win

Canada's Conservatives (Stephen Harper) stormed to a decisive victory in Monday's federal election, winning 54 percent of the seats in Parliament and securing a stable four-year term in power after vowing to focus on the economy.

The victory, a relief for Canadian financial markets, left support for the separatist Bloc Quebecois in tatters and the party's leader without a seat.

The Liberals, who have ruled Canada for more years than any other party, were reduced to a dismal third place showing with their worst ever seat haul.

"With a Conservative majority, you're essentially assured a fairly business-friendly platform, low taxes, continued investment in energy and potential future energy projects. In terms of investment it's definitely got a bullish bias." said Youssef Zohny, portfolio manager at Van Arbor Asset Management in Vancouver.

Three-cheers for Canada.  If the USA somehow managed to copy Canada, and the UK, and install an all conservative government with strong majorities, imagine the possibilities.   The USA cannot dream this dream until the Senate and the Executive branches are in super-majority, GOP hands.  And the GOP RINO's are driven out as well.  Its a tall order, but the pathway is clear to see.

If Obama is reelected, the USA will enter a cold and long dark age.  Many simply do not understand how dire the situation is, just how massively behind the power-curve the country is suffering at present.

The election in 2012 will be the ultimate crossroad; will the American voter rise to the challenge, learn the basics, respond and act decisively?  Or will the US simply, inexorably continue to collapse under the cancerous debt, and economic stupidity of the Obama regime... stay tuned.

Usama Bin Laden Dead - Pakistan Protected Him

Who better to summarize the events leading to this day, Donald Rumsfield notes “It’s a good signal that the United States, thanks to George W. Bush’s administration, put in place some structures that put pressure on terrorists and led to this event...”.

Now that the US Military has once again triumphed, consistently proving they are the best in the world, we need hard answers from Pakistan.  And Obama, who gets no credit for simply allowing the military to do its job, needs to push for the answers.

Bin Laden was hiding in plain sight.  The U.S. special forces operation that killed Bin Laden took place at a mansion in the town of Abbottabad, just over 62 miles from the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

The death of Bin Laden comes at a time when relations between the U.S. and Pakistan are strained with Pakistani officials angered by U.S. drone strikes, and US Military forces staging raids in the country.  Who cares...  Pakistan receives billions from the US, and in return, it tacitly allows these actions, though complains often publicly about them.

The whole middle east is either stabilizing nicely, or turning into a fortress for Al Qaeda.  Saudi Arabia has publicly denounced Obama for cheerleading the ousting of Mubarak in Egypt.  Pakistan's ISI created the Taliban, and given the years they protected Bin Laden, cannot be trusted as the war continues.

The death of Bin Laden is not an end in the war on terror (a phrase, recall, Obama suppresses).  But, it is nice to get some pay-back after 911, symbolically, it is the biggest prize yet.
